Quarterly Letter - June 2018

June 2018
 
Greetings Everyone,
 
Some have said the Bible is a coded book. And, actually, that is true. Now, anyone can read the Bible, memorize it, and even quote it word for word; but they have no idea some of the basic truths God has reserved for his servants. This is true in “traditional Christianity.”
 
The definition of coded is to convert words into a particular code in order to convey a secret meaning. That is exactly what God has done! We read in Deuteronomy 29:29, “The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.” Notice that there are certain things that God has not revealed to mankind, He has reserved them for Himself and His Son. But, there are certain things He has revealed to us and to our children. But why has He revealed these things to us? Read on. “That we may do all the words of this law.”
 
How many people do you know today that “keep the law?” Haven’t most been taught that the law has been done away with? Of course they have! So we must draw the conclusion that observing the law has not been revealed to those who do not keep the law. We read in Amos 3:7, “Surely the LORD God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.”
 
Christ said, “I thank thee, O Father, LORD of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes. Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight. All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him” (Mat. 11:25-27).
 
In Matthew 13 verses 34-35, Christ was explaining why He spoke in parables and “without a parable spake he not unto them: That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet (Ps. 78:2), saying I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world”
 
The truth is God does not want everyone to understand the basic truths of the Bible at this time. Notice, Mat. 13: 11-17. He has deliberately hidden these truths from the wise and prudent of the world. You can only understand why He has done this by decoding the Book.
 
Because of the sin of Adam and Eve, rejecting the tree of life, which is spiritual knowledge revealed by God, God cut all of mankind off from spiritual knowledge ( basic truths) . Thus, sin entered into the world and death by sin (Rom. 5:12). Satan, the Devil, took advantage of their decision and was able to deceive the whole world (Rev. 12:9). All have been deceived since then and have been cut off from revealed knowledge.
 
No man can understand these basic truths unless He is called by the Father and He reveals His truths to them (John 6:44). Read verse 45. “It is written in the prophets And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath, heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me.”
 
Coded in the Bible are such basic truths as God’s purpose and plan of salvation for mankind. Why Satan is on this earth. Why we were created flesh and blood but made in the image of God. Why God created and established the Sabbath for mankind. What is the spiritual significance of the Holy Days listed in Leviticus 23. God is a family and not a trinity. Why we must keep the law of God as outlined in the Ten Commandments. What really happens to us when we die. What man’s incredible destiny really is. What true repentance is. The significance of baptism and the difference between baptism of water, fire and the Holy Spirit. Why mankind should not be observing the holidays of this world. And, America and Britain in prophecy.
 
This is only a partial list of basic truths found in the Bible; but can only be understood by revealed knowledge from God Himself. The majority of mankind simply cannot understand these truths because they do not possess the KEY for understanding spiritual knowledge — The Holy Spirit. If you do not believe me read I Corinthians 2:9-14. Will you believe your Bible?
 
My friends, if your interest has been piqued, it could be that God is calling you. We have explained these truths in detail in our series of Correspondence Courses: Mini-Correspondence Course, Traditional Christian Doctrine Course, and our God’s Master Plan Course. Enroll today to learn more. They are absolutely FREE, and we never follow up unless you request it.
 
Additionally, we have thousands of articles and sermons explaining these basic doctrinal truths in detail. You can read or listen to them on line or send for your individual copies by writing to the address listed in our letterhead or calling our number also on the letterhead. Or you can order directly online at cognwm.org.
 
With the help of our ministry, and God’s Holy Spirit leading and guiding you, these basic truths, coded from the foundation of the world, can be unlocked to your understanding. God will reveal these truths to you if you are sincerely seeking Him! God has a Plan for mankind, but few have had their eyes opened to understand it. You can!
 
Because of those of you who support this work through your tithes and offerings, we are able to preach God’s word to a blinded world. As God has revealed these truths to His servants, we are able to teach them to others. We thank you for your generosity and faithfulness in supporting this End Time Work of God!
 
 
Sincerely,
George Trent
