John 17:17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
I would like to say “Thank you” to each of you who are either a member or a co-worker of the Church of God’s Faithful (CGF)! Truly, this tiny church that has “little strength” (Rev. 3:8) has been able, through your financial support, to accomplish a vital part of the commission Jesus Christ has given us.
Revelation 10:11 states one of the tasks the CGF must accomplish: “And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.”
This is a very difficult assignment for a small Church—and to make things more urgent, this commission is to be accomplished in a very brief period of time. Christ states plainly that “…all things will shortly come to pass” and “…the time is at hand” (Rev.1:1 and 3)!
Our Lord did NOT mean that at John’s writing 1900 years ago all things would shortly come to pass! Nineteen hundred years is a very long time and was most certainly NOT “the time at hand” that He was referring to. What has not been understood is that the apostle John, although writing in the 90’s AD, was projected forward into our time, today, and wrote the book of Revelation while "in the spirit" in the Day of the Lord!
Revelation 1:10 tells us plainly: “I came to be in the Spirit on the Day of the Lord, when I heard a loud voice behind me like a trumpet” (ISV).
Thus, since entering the awesome time of the Day of the Lord, “all things will shortly come to pass” and “the time [really] is at hand.” Our Lord and Savior came “as a thief,” just as he warned in Revelation 16:15! He came “suddenly to His Temple” (Mal. 3:1), and the Day of the Lord came as a “thief in the night” (I Thess. 5:1). Our booklet, The Day of the Lord, explains how this momentous event happened as predicted and emphasizes the extreme urgency of today’s time!
The Bible also tells us that God will supply ALL our needs through Christ (Phil. 4:19); therefore, we are doing His work and our commission is being fulfilled by the miracles He provides. Through your financial donations and the electronic miracle of the Internet, the CGF is “prophesying again” to “many peoples, nations, tongues and kings.”
As I accessed the statistical analysis of our website today, it is apparent that the CGF is reaching most areas of the earth by the Internet. Here is a sampling of the areas responding: Auckland, New Zealand; Antwerp, Belgium; Guangdong, China; Alberta and Montreal, Canada; Melbourne, Australia; Suva, Fiji; Johannesburg, South Africa; Tokyo, Japan; Paris, France; Moscow, Russian Federation; Bremen, Germany; Dublin, Ireland; Akron, Ohio; New York, New York; Dallas, Texas; San Diego, California; and many cities in England. And there are many others—around the entirety of the globe!
The message of the TRUE GOSPEL is AGAIN available to ALL nations with the added NEW TRUTHS that provide wonderful details to the plan of God. However, this is a warning message especially for God’s people around the world that are spiritually asleep in the split and splintered daughter churches of the former Worldwide Church of God. The world has already had its calling under the ministry of Herbert W. Armstrong, and the Spiritual Temple was completed at his death—but in the past 26 years many have thrown away their crowns (Rev. 3:11). The few that are being called today are REPLACEMENTS for those who have not treasured their calling (See Luke 14:16-24)!
The “gates of hell” have not prevailed against the Church of Jesus Christ although we have “little strength.” Now the “time is at hand” for “prophesying again” and to proclaim the prophecy of the “Midnight Cry” of Matthew 25:1-13. That warning message, with the new truths revealed to the CGF, identifies the CGF as the one true Church of Jesus Christ.
If you are a co-worker with us, thank you again for your prayers and contributions! If you are not yet a co-worker and would like to offer your financial help and be involved in the completion of this great work, we also thank you in advance.
Please, take advantage of all that is offered on our website. There is much NEW TRUTH that you need to study and understand. All that is written in this brief message is available in detail in our literature and audio/video messages. Let us know if you have questions about any of our doctrines—we are here to help.
The time is at hand—the two witnesses will quickly come on the scene—the work will be finished—all things will shortly come to pass!
Your brother in Christ,
