Quarterly Letter - August 2016

August 2016
 
Greetings Everyone,
 
“Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins” (Isaiah 58:1). Isaiah was a prophet of God. He was sent to warn the people of God that their fasting was in vain. He explains why in the next four verses. They professed to love God’s law but all the while not obeying it. They, like most people today, pay lip service to God but will not obey him.
 
Ezekiel puts it this way, “And they come unto thee as the people cometh, and they sit before thee as my people, and they hear thy words, but they will not do them. For with their mouth they shew much love, but their heart goeth after their covetousness” (Ez. 33:31).
 
Yes, we profess to be a “Christian Nation” and yet we have embraced the very concepts that God calls abominations in His word. As a nation we have chosen to reject God’s word from our schools, public meetings and our daily lives. The Ten Commandments and prayer are no longer allowed in many public places under the guise of “separation of church and state”. The Supreme Court has ruled homosexuality is permissible and accepted as marriage between two people of the same sex. We are aborting millions of unborn babies legalized by our courts as “The Right to Choose”.
 
As a nation, our morals, principles and values have fallen into the sewer. We are so concerned about what people think of us on “Social Media” that we compromise our values the moment someone questions them.
 
God gave us the Holy Bible, inspired by Him, (2 Tim. 3:16-17) as His instruction manual for human beings to live by. But people ignore it. They cast it aside as an archaic old book written by a group of old men with their own agendas. Is it any wonder the world is in so much chaos? That “peace” cannot be found anywhere on earth?
 
America is preparing for a presidential election this November. Will either of the candidates save us? Will either of them be able to “put America back on track”? “Or, “Make America Great Again”? Will they be able to restore character and patriotism in a nation that is so racially and politically divided? Will they be able to stop the burning of the American flags, put prayer and Bible study back in our schools, abolish the Supreme Courts decision on gay marriage, stop the aborting of human lives, stop the corruption in our government, motivate people to turn to God?
 
If you are one that is putting your trust and faith in one of these candidates you are going to be sadly disappointed. The Bible prophecies the fall of our Great Nation because the people have turned from God and sought after their own way and satisfying their own pleasures.
 
God’s True Church has been commissioned to warn the people of Israel (United States and Britain) of their sins. I have just listed a few of our national and personal sins. As far as we are concerned “The Handwriting is on the Wall”. Read the 5th chapter of Daniel! Just as God punished the Babylonians for their iniquities, so He will punish Israel for their sins.
 
God said in Ezekiel 33:11, “Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord God, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways: for why will ye die, O house of Israel?” As a nation, we must stop breaking God’s laws and begin keeping His Commandments. Nothing short of that will save us. Will you take heed?
 
The Fall Holy Day season is quickly approaching. The dates for the Fall Holy Days this year (2016) are as follows: Trumpets - October 3rd; Atonement - October 12th; Feast of Tabernacles – October 17-23; Last Great Day – October 24th.
 
The Church of God New World Ministries will be observing the Feast of Trumpets in Williamsburg, KY at the Cumberland Inn and Museum. The Inn is located off I-75, exit 11. Services will begin October 3rd at 11:00 AM. A block of rooms has been reserved at the Inn if you choose to come in the evening before. The rooms will be held until September 18th. After that, they will be released.
 
Atonement services will be held in your local area. Holy Day DVD’s will be provided for Trumpets and Atonement to the hosts and by request to others as well as on our web site.
 
The Feast of Tabernacles and Last Great Day will be held in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee this year. Services will be conducted at the Holiday Inn on 3230 Parkway, Pigeon Forge. For reservations call (800) 555-2650. More information about this year’s Feast will be posted on our website, cognwm.org, soon. If you need more information you may call (865) 774-8485. We look forward to this year’s Feast with GREAT anticipation!
 
My friends, if we, as a nation do not repent of our sins the prophecies regarding the Last Days will be fulfilled. Christ said, “For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no nor ever shall be” (Mat. 24:21). This isn’t a pipe dream written by some white robed, bearded, card carrying fanatic proclaiming “The End is Near!” This is the very word of the Great God who created the heavens and the earth. His word is true and sure. Make no mistake about this!
 
The Church of God New World Ministries sincerely thanks all of you who offer prayers, time, labor and tithes on behalf of this “End Time Work.” It is extremely important at this time!
 
Sincerely,
George Trent
