Dear Brethren and Co-Workers with Christ,
We are moving ahead! In addition to the new stations Mr. Ames mentioned in his fine co-worker letter last month, our heavenly Father is continuing to bless this Work with additional resources to reach the world with Christ’s true message. As the very end of this confused age approaches, Almighty God is going to reach out through His Work to let people know that He is involved in the world’s affairs and that He will soon intervene and send Jesus Christ as King of kings. God has called His true people to prepare the way. Jesus proclaimed, “And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come” (Matthew 24:14).
So, in addition to the new stations Mr. Ames announced last month, we are now on the CWPLUS Network which began airing Monday morning, February 3. Also, we began airing on WABM Birmingham, AL on that same date. Then, we began airing on WATL Atlanta, GA, WTTA Tampa, FL and KOFY San Francisco, CA on February 9. Altogether, brethren, this involves at least eight stations—including some networks—that we are now airing on that are “new” to us during this new year! We are very grateful that our Father has opened this opportunity to us and that we can begin to have a real impact on this nation as never before! You will begin to “see” within the next four to eight months as the impact of our program on these stations begins to become evident over time.
This world desperately needs what we have to give. As the servants of the living God, we are called to give the “Ezekiel Warning” to our peoples—warning them powerfully about the coming Great Tribulation and the need to turn to God in time to avoid it. And we are certainly commissioned to preach the “gospel of the Kingdom” as a “witness”—so that people will at least understand in a general way when these terrible things begin to happen. In His inspired Word, our God and Father has specifically instructed those who are willing: “Deliver those who are drawn toward death, and hold back those stumbling to the slaughter. If you say, ‘Surely we did not know this,’ Does not He who weighs the hearts consider it? He who keeps your soul, does He not know it? And will He not render to each man according to his deeds?” (Proverbs 24:11-12). All of us in this Work should certainly have the realization that the years just ahead will indeed be the time when God’s people are “stumbling to the slaughter” more than ever before in modern history. For this time, it will involve not just the Jewish people but all twelve tribes, or nations, of modern Israel—including the British-descended and American peoples! May God help us to stir ourselves and reach out to our friends and brethren and give His warning in a truly heartfelt way while we have the opportunity.
We need to realize that the terrible drought in California is just a prelude of what is to come for millions of people across the Southwest and other parts of the United States, Australia and other Israelitish nations. The Wall Street Journal reported a few days ago, “San Francisco—California officials have taken the unprecedented step of announcing plans to completely halt distribution of state water supplies to parched farms and cities this year amid worsening drought conditions” (February 1, 2014). The next day, our local paper reported: “San Jose, Calif.—California’s current drought is being billed as the driest period in the state’s recorded rainfall history…. California in 2013 received less rain than in any year since it became a state in 1850. At least one San Francisco Bay Area scientist says based on tree ring data, the current rainfall season is on pace to be the driest since 1580. Such a megadrought today would have catastrophic effects. California, the most populous state with 38 million residents, has built a massive economy, Silicon Valley, Hollywood and millions of acres of farmland, all in a semi-arid area. The states’ dams, canals and reservoirs have never been tested by the kind of prolonged drought experts say will almost certainly occur again” (Charlotte Observer).
Also, originating in California, many recently viewed or at least read about another horrifying event which shocked millions of thoughtful Americans and others. The vile behavior and antics displayed in the “Grammy Awards” displaying so much naked flesh, with filthy double entendres, sexual references and even the flagrant “fist in God’s face” by the so-called “marriage” of dozens of same-sex couples by the entertainer Queen Latifah—all of this was like a “fist in God’s face”! How long do you think it is going to be before God Almighty intervenes?
What many of you may not have thought about is the need to “connect the dots.” This vile rejection of every sense of God-fearing decency which took place in Hollywood was at the same time that the Creator has been cutting back on the water for these very people in the state of California! Oh, I know! Some of you think that God has nothing to do with the weather! But, in fact, the Creator of heaven and earth has everything to do with weather! If you have any respect for the inspired Word of God, you will come to realize that over and over down through human history, our Creator has used the weather to humble people and help get their attention. In fact, I would like to ask you right now to call us or write us and request your free copy of our powerful booklet: Who Controls the Weather?. It will be sent to you absolutely free and postpaid upon your request. You need this booklet to understand what is just ahead and why. We all need to “connect the dots” and realize that as certain things begin to happen which God Almighty predicted thousands of years ago, it shows that there is a “real God”—the great Creator and Governor of the Universe—who is now beginning to intervene and bring about all those things that He predicted in His Word.
Wake up, America! And wake up Canada, Britain, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa! The descendants of Israel who live primarily in these countries are predicted to be humbled in a way they have never been before—unless we turn to the real God of the Bible and begin to obey His laws and do what He says. Are we too dense to “understand” this?
Those of you involved in this Work undoubtedly know better. May God help every one of us truly “get involved” and do all we can to get out God’s warning message while we have the opportunity. Let us all truly heed Christ’s instruction for His people at the time of the end: “Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man” (Luke 21:36).
Dear brethren and co-workers, I just yesterday returned from preaching in our churches in Houston and Austin, TX. In addition, I gave a “campaign” sermon in Houston in one of our Tomorrow’s World Presentation lectures. This is part of the series of public meetings we are holding all across the United States and around the world to help reach all peoples in a personal way and let them know about what is just ahead and what they ought to be doing about it. For we do have ministers and churches around the world. We sincerely want to help you find out the genuine purpose for your life and the way to achieve that purpose! If you are being “called” by Almighty God and truly understand what we have been teaching you through the Tomorrow’s World telecast and the Tomorrow’s World magazine—plus our dozens of booklets—please call us or write us and ask for a “visit” from one of our representatives in your area. He and his wife or associate will be glad to visit you at a time and place agreeable to both of you. There will be no pressure. There will be no “pushing” to join anything or do anything. Our minister or representative will simply help you understand even more—in a personal way—about this Work, about what help we can be to you, and about how you may meet with others in your immediate city or in a nearby area—others who truly want to serve God and walk in His ways. So act on this invitation if God is opening your mind.
As world events speed along, it is up to you to do your part! So I will appreciate your personal prayers for my trips—as I am now having to travel alone without my wife. And I will certainly appreciate your fervent prayers for this Work which is now without question the most powerful work of its kind on earth today—reaching increasing millions of human beings around the world with the full message of Jesus Christ as proclaimed in His Word. Let us each understand what is happening all around us and cry out to God more as His servants that we may receive the reward which Almighty God promises to those who serve Him.
For Jesus said: “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work.
Do you not say, ‘There are still four months and then comes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest! And he who reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit for eternal life, that both he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together” (John 4:34-36).
Indeed, those of us who reap God’s harvest will receive “wages”—many blessings and encouragements in this life and God’s protection during the coming Great Tribulation. In addition, we will receive everlasting life in the coming Kingdom of God soon to be set up on this earth. For we are truly in the “final crusade” to prepare for Christ’s coming as King of kings. Let us fully understand the meaning of all this and act on the most important calling human beings have ever had!
With Christian love,
