Quarterly Letter - September - November 2015

November 2015 2015
 
Greetings Everyone,
 
After Christ’s work was attributed to the work of the Devil (Beelzebub); He made the following statement: “If a house be divided against itself that house cannot stand” (Mark 3:22-26). Do those of you reading this letter think that statement has any impact on your lives today?
 
There is a direct correlation between this statement and Luke 21 verse 36. Ok, you may say, but what are we to be watching? Christ’s statement was a warning to anyone that will listen! However, most people have been so blinded by Satan the Devil that they cannot see the obvious (Mat. 13:11-16)! People get caught up in virtually every “movement” that comes along!
 
In Revelation 6 verses 1-2 we see the first of seven seals opened. The first seal reveals a white horse. He that sat upon him went forth conquering and to conquer. The rider of this horse is NOT Christ as depicted in Revelation 19:11. This rider has a bow, the rider in Revelation 19 has a sword. The rider in Revelation 6 represents Satan the Devil and his servants (2 Cor. 11:13-15). Satan’s goal is to conquer! Conquer—gain control of— the minds of human beings. But how will he accomplish his mission? Paul warned the Corinthians that we are not ignorant of his devices (2 Cor. 2:11). Unfortunately many do not have eyes to see and ears to hear what Satan is doing. Satan has always used the device of Divide and Conquer to accomplish his goal; which is to destroy human beings.
 
He was able to influence 1/3 of the angels to cause division among them (Rev. 12:4, 9; Isaiah 14; Ez. 28). He was successful in deceiving Eve to reject the “Tree of Life” and follow Satan’s way of life (Gen. 3). Because of this decision sin entered the world and death was passed upon all men. The majority of people’s eyes have been blinded to the truth of God. People are ignorant of why they were born. Why they are on this earth. What their future is. What salvation is. The list of unanswered questions for humans is endless; all the while believing they are right in their present beliefs. Solomon wrote, “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death” in Proverbs 14:12.
 
Everyone “thinks” he/she is right. They believe their religious or non religious beliefs are correct. They believe their political views are correct. They believe their stance on homosexuality, racism, politics, abortion, childrearing, and wages is correct. They “think” their opinion matters and if you do not agree with them you are a racist, an idiot, a liar or “anti” whatever it is they are professing. Isaiah wrote the time would come when people would be “offended” for a word (Is. 29:21). Do you not see what Satan is doing? He is successfully using human beings to carry out his “agenda” of Dividing and Conquering. He is pitting one group against another!
 
As a nation we are becoming more divided than ever before. Our motto was once “E Pluribus Unum”— One from many. That is no longer true. We are now divided over religion, politics, race, patriotism, the confederate flag, black lives matter, war on women, planned parenthood, global warming, the Canadian pipeline, political correctness, immigration and etc.
 
Christ warned us that a “House Divided Cannot Stand”! All this ‘DIVERSITY’ will become our downfall. Since we have removed God and prayer from our schools, our places of business and now even from our homes we have no guidelines as to what is right or wrong. Isaiah also wrote the time would come “when we call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight” (Is. 5:20-21)! Satan has so divided us that we do not know what is right or wrong. For instance, we can no longer see that abortion is murder!
 
Jeremiah cried out to God saying, “I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps”. Jeremiah asked God to “pour out His fury upon the heathen that know thee not, and upon the families that call not on thy name: for they have eaten up Jacob, and devoured him, and consumed him, and have made his habitation desolate” (Jer. 10: 23, 25). That is exactly what is happening to us today! We are destroying ourselves!
 
Solomon wrote, “where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he” (Prov. 29:18). Without God’s inspiration and direction in our lives we are easily divided and eventually will be conquered. Mark wrote that the people are worshipping Him in vain while being taught the doctrines of men instead of His commandments (Mark 7:7).
 
If you would like to know why you were born, what the true gospel of Christ is, what the true doctrines of Christ are, enroll today in our Mini-Correspondence Course, Our Traditional Christian Doctrine Series, and God’s Master Plan of Salvation series. You need not be in the dark. You can learn how to avoid Satan’s “Divide and Conquer” trap. Don’t get caught up in the “Political Correctness” of the day. Follow God’s instructions. “Be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves” (James 1:22). “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you” (James 4:7-8). Make sure that what you believe is in line with God’s Word!
 
As always, in behalf of the Church of God New World Ministries, I would like to thank each of you for your prayers and financial support. Through your efforts many are learning the truth.
 
Sincerely,
George Trent
