Letter to the Brethren – November 30, 2001

Dear Members and Co-workers,
Jesus Christ gave us a sober warning in Matthew 24: 6-8: “And you will hear of wars and rumors
of wars… And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are
the beginning of sorrows.” More terrible things will have to happen first, before the end is here (v.
6). Imagine that! The terror attack on New York and the subsequent war in Afghanistan, for
example, are only the “beginning.” Terror and war, earthquakes and other natural disasters (cp.
Luke 21:25-26), as well as famines and disease epidemics will increase!
Let’s consider how terrible the next few years, prior to Christ’s return, will become. The four
horsemen of the Apocalypse, symbolizing religious deception, war, famine and disease epidemics
(cp. Rev. 6: 2-8 with Matthew 24: 4-7) will be responsible for the death of one fourth of mankind

Letter to the Brethren – October 18, 2001


Dear Brethren and Co-workers,

As we begin to take stock of where we are after the Feast of Tabernacles, the first thing we want to do is to give thanks and credit where it is due. What a peaceful, rewarding and joyful feast we have just experienced! God has blessed us richly in every way. Our hope and our strength have been renewed, and we are continuously being encouraged to go forward. As the dust settles, more and more brethren who have remained steadfast in the faith have been coming together in this common effort.

Once again, God has given us the opportunity and a voice to be able to declare His words. Therefore, our thanks are twofold – first of all to God, and then to all the brethren. Your prayers, your encouragement, your willing offerings, your tithes, your voluntary service and your gifts to God make it all possible.

Letter to the Brethren – September 4, 2001


Dear Brethren,

God’s festival season is almost upon us, though it seems we just completed the observance of the Feast of Pentecost. Time seems to move so rapidly, yet we are definitely looking forward to the upcoming feast days with great anticipation and excitement.

God tells us we are to keep His feast days in their seasons. God has a definite timetable He is working on, brethren. We must stay in tune with that timetable. We are about to enter the fall festival season, which has tremendous significance for the people of God, as well as for the whole world. Yet, most in the world are totally unaware of the awesome events that will soon overtake this society we are living in.

The four festivals that we will be observing within the next five weeks picture the return of Christ to this earth; the placing of the legitimate blame for the sins of this world squarely on the head of Satan the devil, where they belong; the establishment of the Government of God on this earth under Jesus Christ to rule the earth in righteousness for 1,000 years; and the time of the second resurrection and the opportunity for all of mankind who never heard the real truths of God, to come to an understanding, and to decide for themselves if they will have a part in God’s ultimate plan for all of mankind for all eternity.
