Co-Worker Letter – October 2010

October 18, 2010

Dear Brethren and Co-Workers with Christ,

Greetings from Charlotte, NC! Thousands of us have just returned from a wonderful Feast of Tabernacles celebration. The warmth and enthusiasm and dedication engendered by keeping the festivals which God describes in the Bible—and which Christ and the apostles kept—certainly adds a great deal to one’s understanding of true Christianity. The people returning from the festival are really inspired to more fully walk with God.

Not only in the true Church of God, but around the world, thousands of others keep at least some of the festivals of God as many sincere people realize that these biblical festivals are part of genuine Christianity—and that they will be observed in Tomorrow’s World. As Zechariah 14:16-19 clearly shows, our Creator intends that His people keep these festivals and that they will be kept by all nations within a few years. Notice God’s inspired Word on this: “And it shall come to pass that everyone who is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall go up from year to year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep the Feast of Tabernacles. And it shall be that whichever of the families of the earth do not come up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, on them there will be no rain. If the family of Egypt will not come up and enter in, they shall have no rain; they shall receive the plague with which the Lord strikes the nations who do not come up to keep the Feast of Tabernacles. This shall be the punishment of Egypt and the punishment of all the nations that do not come up to keep the Feast of Tabernacles” (Zechariah 14:16-19).

As Zechariah 14:1-4 certainly indicates, this is describing the time soon after Christ’s return as King of kings, when “all the nations” will begin to keep the Feast of Tabernacles. It may be helpful for all of us to understand that we are, in fact, “pioneers” if we will surrender our lives now to follow God’s teachings and begin to keep the annual festivals which He commands, which Christ and the apostles kept, and which the true Church of God should keep following God’s clear instruction. My friends, we will certainly be blessed if we learn to actually practice what God clearly commands in the Holy Days we keep, the way we live our lives, and the emphasis we have on truly preparing for the coming Kingdom of God—the World Government which will soon be set up on this earth under Jesus Christ and the true saints of God.

Thousands of you have come to realize that this very Work—publishers of Tomorrow’s World magazine and sponsors of Tomorrow’s World telecast around the world—is being used powerfully to directly prepare for that coming World Government. We have been trying to help our people clearly understand that real Christians are now “in training” to become those kings and priests described in Revelation 5:8-10. Notice some of these inspired verses. Here the true saints are pictured with the singing of a “new song” describing how Christ has been “slain” and He has “redeemed us to God by Your blood out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, and have made us kings and priests to our God; and we shall reign on the earth” (vv. 9-10).

So, the true saints in the coming Kingdom of God will reign with Christ on this earthnot up in heaven with nothing to do! Again, the biblical Holy Days which Christ and the apostles observed directly picture this part of God’s Plan and, in fact, all of the Plan of God which He is working out in the lives of His true people. However, though tens of thousands of people in various religious fellowships partly observe some of God’s Holy Days, very few really understand the meaning of God’s commanded annual festivals. They do not comprehend that these festivals actually picture the Plan of the Creator as it relates to our personal salvation—and how God, step by step, is working with mankind to eventually bring all human beings into His divine Family. Therefore, especially for thousands of you co-workers, I would like to give a brief “overview” of the Plan of God as shown by these seven religious festivals commanded in His inspired word. Please remember, these festivals were not only given to Israel and commanded to be kept “forever,” they were observed by Jesus Christ and the early Church of God—setting us an example. And they will be observed in the coming one thousand year reign of Christ when His religion—true Christianity—will be practiced all over the world. Let us briefly describe each of God’s seven religious festivals and its meaning.

  • The Passover: This spiritual “feast” was observed by Israel with the slaying of an unblemished lamb—picturing in advance the death of the ultimate “Lamb” of God, Jesus Christ.
  • The Days of Unleavened Bread: These days portray that as ancient Israel came out of Egypt—biblically indicating a type of sin—so true Christians should also come out of sin. After the Passover, which pictures our acceptance of Christ’s shed blood, we are to “grow” in grace and in knowledge. In this festival God uses “leaven” as a type of sin—since it spreads throughout the dough in the making of bread products just as sin invisibly “spreads” through a person’s life unless forcibly and deliberately checked. The spiritual analogy in this is that as we are commanded to put leaven out of our homes during the Days of Unleavened, so we must put sin out of our lives (1 Corinthians 5:6-8).
  • Pentecost: The day of Pentecost was often referred to as the Feast of “Firstfruits” in the Old Testament (Exodus 34:22), as it was a celebration of the early harvest in Palestine—and pictures the “firstfruits” of God’s salvation. It clearly indicates that God is not trying to “save” everyone now, but that today’s true Christians are merely the “firstfruits” of salvation—awaiting the time of Christ’s return when He will set His hand to save all human beings.
  • Trumpets: The Feast of Trumpets is a time of the “blowing of trumpets”—as described in the Old Testament and in Revelation 8 and 9. Clearly, it pictures the “alarm of war”—as trumpets were used to indicate—the time of chaos, massive wars and troubles immediately preceding the return of Jesus Christ as King of kings. That day will be exciting! It clearly pictures the time we are now approaching—and the soon coming of our Savior to rule this entire world!
  • Atonement: The Day of Atonement was a time when ancient Israel put away a goat which is designated as the “Azazel”—the Adversary—picturing the ultimate putting away of Satan the Devil, to typify Satan’s part in our sins being put right back on him, and Satan being sent “away into the wilderness by the hand of a suitable man” (Leviticus 16:21). This same event is foretold in Revelation 20:1-2.
  • The Feast of Tabernacles: The Feast of Tabernacles pictures the fact that we, as true saints, are simply “pilgrims” in this world today—looking forward to what the coming Kingdom of God pictures. It also pictures the great harvest of souls when Christ will set His hand to save everyone during His coming Millennial reign. Therefore, in Exodus 34:22, it is also called the “Feast of Ingathering” at the harvest’s end. For it takes place at the time of the great fall harvest in Palestine and, again, describes the time when God really does attempt to “save” everyone in the tremendous “ingathering” of souls during the Millennium. It is indeed a joyous time—replete with much singing and celebration among God’s people!
  • The Last Great Day: Even the coming Millennial reign of Christ does not complete God’s Plan. For, as many in the world wonder about but still do not understand, what happens to the untold billions of human beings who have never been converted to any form of Christianity—many of whom never even heard the name of Jesus Christ? This day clearly pictures the time when God will give them their first opportunity for genuine salvation. Many scriptures indicate the meaning of this day—an awesome day picturing the time when many of our own friends and unconverted relatives will have a chance to really understand the Truth of God in a way they never did before, and to obey their Creator with the help of His Holy Spirit!

Dear brethren and co-workers, all of these days—in this entire “Master Plan” of God—are clearly described and explained in our free booklet entitled: The Holy Days: God’s Master Plan. If you don’t already have a copy, be sure to call or write us immediately and request your free copy of this informative and inspiring booklet. It will “open your eyes” to help you really understand the days Jesus and the apostles kept and why they will be kept in the soon-coming reign of Jesus Christ. We all ought to want to be “pioneers” in the true ways of God our Creator! We will be blessed forever if we seek for the understanding and courage to act on what our Creator is revealing to us through His inspired Word!

Even as I have been writing this letter, news has come to my desk from The Independent newspaper in Great Britain that a secret treaty is right now being planned by a number of major world powers—a treaty which will drastically change the American and British “way of life” within the next several years! The article entitled, “The demise of the dollar” was written by Robert Fisk. Mr. Fisk writes:

In a graphic illustration of the new world order, Arab states have launched secret moves with China, Russia and France to stop using the US currency for oil trading.

In the most profound financial change in recent Middle East history, Gulf Arabs are planning—along with China, Russia, Japan and France—to end dollar dealings for oil, moving instead to a basket of currencies including the Japanese yen and Chinese yuan, the euro, gold and a new, unified currency planned for nations in the Gulf Co-operation Council, including Saudi Arabia, Abu Dhabi, Kuwait and Qatar. Secret meetings have already been held by finance ministers and central bank governors in Russia, China, Japan and Brazil to work on the scheme, which will mean that oil will no longer be priced in dollars.

The plans, confirmed to The Independent by both Gulf Arab and Chinese banking sources in Hong Kong, may help to explain the sudden rise in gold prices…” (The Independent, October 6, 2009).

Dear friends, this article goes on to show that Brazil and India have both “shown interest” in collaborating in this plan to do away with the dollar as the major world reserve currency. Other nations will probably become involved down the line, as indicated. This article has great current significance because many of the events it describes are now underway! Just this past summer, China detached itself from the bilateral exchange rate with the U.S. dollar, instead choosing to compare itself to a “basket” of other currencies. One reason was to deflect attention away from the U.S. dollar (Reuters, July 22, 2010). Nations of the world are increasingly concerned about the U.S. dollar and spiraling U.S. sovereign debt. The U.S. debt is also acting to polarize nations and even drive some nations together—for example the gulf nations. The Bible makes clear that debt can move one from a position of leadership to one of being a servant (Proverbs 22:7). We are right now watching this global power-shift occur! And these events are certainly “setting the stage” for America’s demise and for a powerful confederation of Arab states, the prophesied “King of the South” (Daniel 11:40-45).

As the American and English-speaking British-descended peoples of the world are being brought down by God because of our mounting sins, our Creator is indeed beginning to “break the pride of our power” (Leviticus 26:19) through economic and other means. Though it is exciting to read about and to sense that Christ’s coming is soon, it is also very sobering. Time is short. We must indeed be about our Father’s business. We must teach the Truth of God to all nations. We must, ourselves, begin to more zealously obey what the Bible actually says and enthusiastically observe His commanded festivals which picture His Master Plan.

We must go all out to obey and to serve our Creator. It will indeed be “worth it” when Christ returns and, hopefully, most of us can be given crowns as those “kings” under Jesus Christ—assisting Him in straightening out the horrible mess this world is coming to and from which God alone will have to deliver us. God speed that day! And may God help all of us catch the vision and truly get involved in the Work to which Jesus Christ has called us at the very end of this 6,000 years of Satan’s rule over a very confused and very deceived world. So let’s do our part, with zeal, in getting out the message of Jesus Christ while we have the opportunity! Please let us hear from you as we need your help to increase the real impact of this end-time Work to which God has called us.

With Christian love,
Roderick C. Meredith

Co-Worker Letter – July 2010

July 15, 2010

Dear Brethren and Co-Workers with Christ,

Greetings from Charlotte, NC! Within a few days after most of you read this, a very important anniversary will occur. It will be the 65th anniversary of “Little Boy”—the first atomic bomb which was dropped on Hiroshima, Japan, on August 6, 1945. Although it almost immediately obliterated a major city and the lives of tens of thousands of human beings, it may have saved the lives of millions by helping bring World War II to a swift conclusion. Have you seen the footage of the utter devastation of Hiroshima? Miles and miles of totally demolished buildings. At the edge of the city, still more buildings destroyed or badly damaged and a few thousand survivors wandering through the rubble—often with sad, empty-looking eyes and shreds of skin hanging from their burned bodies. Elsewhere, huge piles of human corpses.

After the bomb was unleashed, the sky above Hiroshima grew bright with a violent flash. “My God, what have we done?” wrote co-pilot Captain Robert Lewis in his flight log. Nearly 70,000 are estimated to have died almost instantly as a result of the bomb, with another 70,000 suffering serious injury. After the lingering effects of the blast are considered—cancer and poisoning from radioactive fallout, etc.—as many as 200,000 Japanese died as a result of that one bomb. Afterward, the pilot, co-pilot and bombardier must have realized the enormity of what had happened. For a huge city was suddenly “gone.” Entire families suddenly disappeared. And the entire “world around” of those who lived on would never be the same again. Indeed, the entire world had undergone a dramatic pivotal point in human experience—for millions now realized the absolute possibility of cosmocide—the total annihilation of the human race which Jesus clearly described in Matthew 24:21-22.

My dear friends and brethren, I tell you sincerely, we in the United States, Canada, Britain, etc., are swiftly drawing closer to another such turning point in human history. For our “world”—almost everything around us—is going to swiftly change over the next very few years! Yet most of those around us “just don’t get it.” They think that “all is well,” and that America and Britain have always “pulled through” every crisis. And they tell themselves, “Not to worry!” Meanwhile, the “prosperity gospel” preachers with their flamboyant clothes and fancy hairdos proclaim, “Just think positively about what you want, and reach out for it. Then God will give it to you!”

Soon, however, reality will set in.

One of the most respected and non-political historians of our time, Harvard professor and prolific author Niall Ferguson, opened the 2010 Aspen Ideas Festival last Monday. In his opening address, Dr. Ferguson gave a stark warning about the increasing prospect of the American “empire” suddenly collapsingdue to the country’s rising debt level. “‘I think this is a problem that is going to go live really soon,’ Ferguson said. ‘In that sense, I mean within the next two years. Because the whole thing, fiscally and other ways, is very near the edge of chaos. And we’ve seen already in Greece what happens when the bond market loses faith in your fiscal policy.’ Ferguson said empires—such as the former Soviet Union and the Roman empire—can collapse quite quickly and the tipping point is often when the cost of servicing an empire’s debt is larger than the cost of its defense budget. ‘That has not been the case I think at any point in U.S. history,’ Ferguson said. ‘It will be the case in the next five years’” (Aspen Daily News Online, July 6, 2010).

Although the collapse of America within the next five or ten years could take place within Ferguson’s time frame, frankly that is not the most important thing. The most important thing is that each of us contemplates carefully and honestly our very purposein life. Why were you born? Why are you drawing breath? If there is a real God as the Bible clearly indicates, what is His purpose for you? And are you truly fulfilling that supreme purpose?

Each of us needs to ask that question honestly and thoughtfully—and not “kid” ourselves about it in any way whatever. For our lives now—and our lives throughout eternity—will depend upon our willingness to face reality and ultimately to face these questions and answer the way our Creator wants us to. Somewhere on this earth, God has always had a “Work” through which He proclaimed His purpose in that particular age. We read that Enoch was a “preacher of righteousness.” We see that Abraham instructed his family and a group of hundreds of followers in the way of God. We see that Moses was used to teach people, and even the nations around, through what God did—that the Lord God of Israel was real. And that His laws were “right.” Later, Elijah cried out, then Elisha and then later John the Baptist cried out “in the wilderness.” Then came Jesus Christ, the apostles and the early Church. Today, we in this Work are truly “reaching out” to increasing millions of people through our expanded television coverage around the world, our powerful use of the Internet, our Tomorrow’s World magazine and many other ways. We will—with God’s help—reach this world as “a witness” with the true message of Jesus Christ regarding the “Kingdom of God”—the great Government which He is now preparing and which will soon be set up on this earth.

Just the other day, I was given the results of my latest television program which was aired this past weekend. We received more than 5,200 responses—even during this normally “slow” summer season. So we are very thankful for the results that God is giving us. A few days ago, my wife and I returned from Dallas, TX, where we had nearly 300 people attend a Tomorrow’s World Special Presentation—a public campaign proclaiming the message of Christ to those interested in following through and giving their lives to God. Mr. and Mrs. Richard Ames will return tonight from Trinidad where he conducted a similar campaign—this time with more than 300 people in attendance, and a wonderful response. Around the world and around the country, the Work of God is increasing in power. We also have a great deal of unity and loyalty because we practice the “way of God”—including the correct form of Church Government which Jesus Christ and the apostles clearly taught and practiced continually. So we are blessed. God has been good to us in spite of our human faults and errors. So we have much to be thankful for.

However, dear friends and brethren, one of the most powerful warnings God gives all of us at the end of this age is the clear warning not to be “Laodicean.” What does God condemn the Laodiceans for, primarily? He does not condemn them for wrong doctrine. He does not condemn them for big personal sins. He states in His inspired Word, “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth” (Revelation 3:15-16).

So the last Church Era of this age is Laodicea. And this age is therefore dominated by the “Laodicean spirit”—a spirit of apathy and lukewarmness. Often, even God’s people reflect the attitude or spirit of those around them. This must be even more so now because of the pervasive influence of television and the Internet. People in most of the world are becoming more and more “worldly” in many ways. They are distracted by their focus on wealth, prosperity and “things.” God seems “far off” to them. So they are apathetic. They do not get excited and truly zealous about serving the Creator who gives them life and breath.

Yet, throughout God’s Word, He tells us over and over that absolute zeal and total commitment to serving Him are some of the characteristics He most looks for in His true servants.

God told ancient Judah that it would have to go into a “Babylonian captivity” because of its terrible sins. He then said that “after 70 years” He would bring Judah back to the land of Israel (Jeremiah 29:10). “Then,” God said, “you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you, says the Lord, and I will bring you back from your captivity; I will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you” (vv. 12-14). As God’s Word clearly states here, He will listen when you “search for Me with all your heart.”

In a foundational prophecy given for all of us in the English-speaking nations—plus the peace-loving nations of Northwest Europe—God describes a time when the modern descendants of the House of Israel would become wealthy and turn aside from God and finally be taken into slavery. God then states, “But from there you will seek the Lord your God, and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul. When you are in distress, and all these things come upon you in the latter days, when you turn to the Lord your God and obey His voice” (Deuteronomy 4:29-30). Again, the emphasis is on the fact that we need to “seek” God “with all your heart and with all your soul!” This is a warning to us in the “latter days” (v. 30).

May God help every one of us understand the times we are living in. As America and our British-descended peoples come down, and the awesome blessings God has given us are slowly but surely taken away, we need to realize why we who are called by God need to awaken ourselves and seek God “with all our hearts!” We need to do God’s Work with all our hearts. We need to show God that we have an intense interest in truly serving Him and being on the “team” Jesus Christ is using to finish His Work in our day now.

May God help every one of us get “involved” with what Jesus Christ is doing right now. May God inspire you to do your very best in backing His Work “with all your heart” and with a renewed zeal for serving your Creator and His people while you have the opportunity.

With Christian love,
Roderick C. Meredith

Co-Worker Letter – June 2010

June 15, 2010

Dear Brethren and Co-Workers with Christ,

Greetings from Charlotte, NC! By the time most of you read this letter, I will have turned 80 years of age. God has been very good to me during these 80 years—giving me a wonderful stable family setting as I grew up, and a happy childhood. Now, over the years, He has given me a fine family, with six children, nine grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. He has given me a wonderful opportunity to serve in the very Work of God for nearly 61 years—counting my student years at Ambassador College. He gave me the opportunity to study directly under Herbert W. Armstrong and to have thousands of hours of personal association with him, and countless meetings, meals, trips together, and other activities over the last 36 years of Mr. Armstrong’s life. I am very grateful for that opportunity—and for the wonderful privilege to carry on the Work which Christ began through Herbert and Loma Armstrong so many years ago. Now, after about 17-and-a-half years in the Global and now the Living Church of God, doing this Work, I can be thankful for the progress we have made in spite of our human weaknesses.

As most of you know, I am absolutely determined to finish the job God has given me to do, as long as God gives me life. Our combined efforts, as small as they may appear to the world—but with God’s blessings—have had considerable effect even in just the past five months! Since the beginning of this year, we have added more than 71,000 new names to our mailing list—people who requested God’s Truth in our free literature. This number pushed to more than 1 million the number of people who have at least once requested our material! In the past five months, we have sent out more than 300,000 booklets, reprint articles, CDs, DVDs, Bible lessons and other items people have requested. In five months, we sent out more literature than we used to send in entire years! This is a growing Work, and we surely hope and pray your part can grow with us. We cannot do this by ourselves.

The Tomorrow’s World television program achieved a new milestone when the 100,000th TV response of 2010 came in on May 16, which is the earliest in a calendar year this has ever happened. As of this letter, we have now received more than 115,000 responses from our TV viewers since the beginning of the year, which makes 2010 our biggest year yet. The response-level is tracking to more than a quarter-million TV responses by the end of this calendar year. We are also getting huge responses from our Web site, www.TomorrowsWorld.org, and follow-up responses from our magazines, booklets, and Bible lessons, as well as word-of-mouth responses from all of you talking to your friends and relatives. Keep up the good work!

The semiannual letter I sent to you and all our subscribers last month is drawing a very good response, requesting the free DVD, “Tomorrow’s World: Behind the Scenes.” Tens of thousands of subscribers are taking us up on the offer, which we are happy about!

In addition to the hundreds of thousands of booklets and other items we have sent since January, we have already mailed nearly one million Tomorrow’s World magazines around the world. Currently the Tomorrow’s World magazine is being mailed into more than 171 countries and dependencies. To date, we have been able to deliver the magazine into 85 percent of the world’s recognized countries and nations. Thank you so very much for your part in helping with this! We all have different strengths, personal gifts and abilities. As Paul exhorts in Romans 12:6, “Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them…!” As you support this Work, may God and Jesus Christ bless and enrich your life all the more.

Dear brethren, in addition to doing “the Work” of reaching out to this world with God’s Truth, I am also very grateful that we have been able—with God’s merciful help—to have part in changing the lives of so many thousands of you. We have recently held some of the most loving, unified ministerial meetings that I have experienced in more than 50 years. We have a wonderful group of members and co-workers solidly backing this Work—with more and more of you being willing to fully surrender your lives to let Christ actually live His life within you through the Holy Spirit. Together, through God’s mercy, we are more fully learning the meaning of Galatians 2:20, “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me” (KJV).

Certainly, as Christ lives in us—the same life He lived 2,000 years ago (Hebrews 13:8)—we will increasingly reflect the “fruits” of God’s Holy Spirit, “love, joy, peace…” etc. (Galatians 5:22). Thousands of you are increasingly showing the outflowing love, the personal kindness, patience and gentleness of Jesus Christ in all that you do.  Also, we—as a Church—are certainly growing in absolute faith in our God and in Jesus Christ as our Savior and High Priest at His right hand. More and more are being supernaturally healed. For all these things we are most grateful.

For part of our job is not only to reach the world with the Truth, but to live the Truth. Without the genuine mercy, kindness and love of Jesus Christ within us, we are, in God’s sight, like a “clanging cymbal” (1 Corinthians 13:1)—like someone beating on a washtub and just making a lot of noise! So I exhort each and every one of you to try to be more sensitive to God’s will and to His Word, and to yield yourself to let Christ truly live within you and to reflect His love in everything you think, say and do. In this way, you will be more fully preparing yourselves to be part of that cadre of individuals who are now being prepared to be those kings and priests ruling—under Jesus Christ—in Tomorrow’s World and bringing about a depth of love, joy and peace beyond anything the world has ever experienced. But we must first surrender to let God build within us that same love, joy and peace, or we will certainly not be able to impart it to others!

As I begin my 81st year of human life, I want—with Christ in me—to do all I can to help “prepare” a people for God. This involves helping each one of you—certainly myself included—to truly reflect the total personality and approach of Jesus Christ in all that we think, say and do. Then, as I stated before, we will be far better prepared to be those individuals to assist Jesus Christ in His soon-coming Government on this earth. For we are truly called to be “kings and priests” on this earth (Revelation 5:9-10). We must never forget that tremendous goal and the marvelous opportunity we have to serve the world and to bring tears of joy to millions of our fellow human beings who will be hurting, suffering and starving when Christ comes back as King of kings. The approach of tenderness and mercy which Christ is now building within us will certainly enable us to reach out to these people as we should when we are made spirit beings in Christ’s coming Kingdom.

God has called each of us to a great and mighty end-time Work. While each of us individually may have only a seemingly tiny role, Jesus Christ makes up the difference! The Apostle Paul was inspired to write in 1 Corinthians 3:9,“…we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, you are God’s building…. For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ” (vv. 9, 11). For God’s good purpose, as only He knows, He has called you to be an integral part of this Work. There are very few of us involved with doing God’s Work in a world filled with more than 6.8 billion people. So we must be filled with enthusiasm and zeal in reaching out to these billions of fellow human beings with the Truth of God! Yet we must do far more than just “lay the Truth out there”—by teaching them God’s laws and warning them about the coming Tribulation and Day of the Lord. We must inspire them with the very love of God, and we must live this love as an example to these people so that all of us may be fully able to comprehend God’s purpose in making us—in His time—God’s full Sons in the coming Family of God (John 17:20-22). This genuine love—“Christ in us”—will carry right on over into the Work we will be doing in Tomorrow’s World. Without this love, our efforts will be relatively empty for, as I explained earlier, we will be like a “clanging cymbal”—unable to practice the very love and outflowing concern which we preach to the world. So may God help every one of you increasingly yield your life to God, literally “cry out to Him” to help you fulfill His purpose in your life, and so prepare yourself for the coming Kingdom of God on this earth.

Dear brethren, you are truly precious to God and to us! For, together, we are being fashioned and molded into one family, bearing the stamp impress of God on our character and personality, as He fashions and molds each one of us to be truly like Him. Thank you for your help in preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ and sharing this wonderful Truth with the peoples of this world. May God help encourage you, inspire you and abundantly bless you for yielding yourselves to Him and for doing your part in the end-time Work which all of us are carrying on together right now.

With Christian love,
Roderick C. Meredith

Co-Worker Letter – May 2010

May 14, 2010

Dear Tomorrow’s World Subscriber,

Greetings from Charlotte, NC! Once again, I am delighted to write all of you subscribers a personal letter informing you about “key” events and prophetic happenings around the world and about the real meaning of this Work. Very few ministers or churchgoers even begin to understand the details of prophetic events. They often do know, that, “Christ is coming back someday.” Or, “America is being punished for our terrible sins.” But they do not know the specific events—many now underway—that are going to shake the British and American peoples, and others, as they have never been shaken before! There is literally no other Work on the earth that can give you the details of this information, and which will give you genuine understanding and instruction about how to prepare for your part in the soon-coming Kingdom of God! Later in this letter, I’ll offer a special DVD gift for you, which will give you “inside information” about what is really behind this Work, and will help you understand even more what it is all about!

Countless millions of Americans are deeply concerned about our nation’s future. They are beginning to realize that—after the last year or two of horrifying financial crisis and the increasing mistrust of government—America will never be the same again. They instinctively know that “something” is going on! Many leaders in the right-wing media also fear what is happening and are giving you part of the picture. Glenn Beck recently revealed that his worst fear is that a “Reichstag moment”—a catastrophic event bringing an end to our beloved Republic—may soon take place because of ongoing events in our nation. Many in Britain are concerned about the direction of things there.

But these media leaders—often called “fear-mongers”—do not and cannot understand what is truly ahead. For God has not called them to the understanding of who the British and American people really are. They do not understand the reality of the soon-coming government of God to be set up on this earth under Jesus Christ. They do not understand the laws of that government which will soon be set up—and how each of us ought to be preparing to take part in that government under Jesus Christ. They cannot understand—not through their own fault, but because God has not “called” them yet. Jesus Christ Himself stated, “No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day” (John 6:44).

My friends, somewhere on this earth the Eternal God has true servants who do understand exactly what is happening, where it is leading and what to do about it. God’s Word tells us, “If a trumpet is blown in a city, will not the people be afraid? If there is calamity in a city, will not the Lord have done it? Surely the Lord God does nothing, unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets” (Amos 3:6-7).

So the God of the Bible here clearly states that He will “reveal His secret” to His true servants. There are untold thousands of sincere ministers, priests and rabbis out there. They mean well. Many of them know part of the Truth. But, unless God has genuinely called them, they do not know or remotely understand the Big Picture. Our ancestors, Adam and Eve, partook of the “tree of the knowledge of good and evil” (Genesis 2:9). Ever since then, humanity has had this “mixture” in its thinking and in the way all of humanity approaches life. So the world is not—as some might say—“all evil.” But if you mix just a little cyanide with an otherwise wholesome cup of soup, it will kill you! So it is with the underlying philosophical/theological approach of humanity.

Under the sway of the invisible Satan—who is definitely the “god of this age” (2 Corinthians 4:4)—many religious leaders, politicians and people are constantly “mixing in” much evil with a little bit of good. And the result will be cosmocide—the destruction of all life off this planet—if it continues, just as Jesus Christ stated. For Jesus warned, “For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened” (Matthew 24:21-22). So “no flesh” will be saved alive except for God’s intervention by sending Jesus Christ back as King of kings.

Truly, my friends, this world does not know how to govern itself. The idea of a “one world government” is not crazy—it is just that man cannot and will not be in charge of such a government. For he is incapable of doing this. Rather, as we have told you so many times and as God’s Word reveals, the time will soon come when a mighty angel will sound a trumpet announcing that, “The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!” (Revelation 11:15). It is clear that Christ’s Kingdom will be set up on this earth (Revelation 5:9-10). Again, Revelation 11:15 states that “the  kingdoms of this world” are to be taken over by Jesus Christ—not some ethereal kingdom up in heaven somewhere with its inhabitants having virtually nothing to do except play harps! That, as most of you know, is a false and pagan concept which completely obscures the direct words of the Bible, denies God’s plan, and negates the entire purpose for which God may be calling you now. For God’s true saints are called to prepare for a literal government to be set up on this earth—probably within the lifetimes of most of you! As the Apostle Paul stated, “Do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if the world will be judged by you, are you unworthy to judge the smallest matters? Do you not know that we shall judge angels? How much more, things that pertain to this life?” (1 Corinthians 6:2-3).

Why, oh why, don’t the “mainstream” ministers take these verses seriously? Why do they persist in their completely unbiblical concepts of “going off to heaven” with nothing to do? Why do they persist in trying to pretend that Christ “did away” with the very law of His Father—which will be the very basis of Christ’s coming government? Why do most of them completely avoid the subject of prophecy? Or, if they do touch upon it, they usually fail miserably to understand what is already beginning to happen and where it is leading?

Hopefully, having read Tomorrow’s World magazine for many months, most of you realize that this very Work—the Tomorrow’s World telecast and Tomorrow’s World magazine—are truly “different.” You know that we tell you about the very “real” God who is now beginning to intervene to bring down the British-descended and American peoples because of our national sins! Many of you remember how God’s true servants and the Work of which we are a continuation prophesied directly that the great “sea gates” of the Suez Canal, the Strait of Hormuz, the Strait of Malacca and others would be “taken away” from our peoples! Remember how Herbert W. Armstrong specifically predicted, three decades in advance, that the nations of eastern Europe would “break away” from the Soviet Union, and that the Berlin Wall would come down? These things and many other specific things have happened! In my almost 58 years in Christ’s ministry, I have been part of this Work proclaiming these very things all over the world. I have seen it happen with my own eyes. I know that God is real! That He is powerful! And that He is beginning to intervene now in a way He has not done since the parting of the Red Sea!

Before going on, let me tell you what this Work is now accomplishing—what your prayers and support are producing. And where it is all leading.

The first four months of 2010 have been exciting for Tomorrow’s World television coverage and our Tomorrow’s World publications. Amazing because of the times we are in. Due to 2008’s and 2009’s economic downturn, which seriously affected most of our subscribers around the world, and affected us, we had to make some serious budget adjustments. This enabled us not only to continue our free services and publications for spiritually starving people around the world, but to expand them! As all our long-time subscribers know, we never ask the public for money, and we never will. This is no gimmick. There is no catch. You do not have to worry about me asking you for money. Other religious organizations are constantly and incessantly appealing to and begging the public for donations or asking them to buy excessively over-priced products, which are often couched as “donations.” You be the judge. We do not do that. We truly believe that we have freely received, and that we should freely give as Jesus Christ instructed His disciples in Matthew 10:8.

Yet, the past four months have been exciting because we are seeing significant increases in the number of people we are reaching and the literal tons of publications we are mailing totally free of charge around the world. And this is occurring in spite of the significant budget cuts we made last year. We are serious about giving, and we believe our Lord and Master, Jesus Christ, is greatly blessing our efforts. In February and March, two of our telecasts generated more than 7,000 responses each—our largest TV responses so far.

The Tomorrow’s World television program is now reaching into every TV market in the United States and most of Canada. We are slowly but surely expanding TV in Australia from coast to coast, and across the United Kingdom, Ireland, Scandinavia and Western Europe, New Zealand, South Africa, Barbados, Trinidad and Tobago, and Jamaica. We thank God for making it possible for us to air Tomorrow’s World television programs on more than 300 TV stations, broadcast networks, cable systems and satellite networks. We are presently working on adding local television coverage in China and the Middle East. We are airing on 12 Spanish-speaking radio stations, three French-speaking stations, and five English-speaking radio stations. Is there more to do?  Absolutely, and we are determined to keep pressing forward with the resources God provides for this end-time Work.

As of today, Tomorrow’s World television program has been viewed by more than 21 million households around the world, effectively reaching more than 50 million people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our magazine circulation this month is up to 329,000, and we will keep doing all we can to build the circulation. In the last four months we have mailed more than 1.2 million publications, including more than 977,000 magazines and over 230,000 booklets, reprint articles, Bible lessons, CDs, DVDs and other publications—all totally free of charge.

In 2009, ministers of the Living Church of God conducted 52 Bible Lectures (Tomorrow’s World Special Presentations) in the USA, Canada, UK and South Africa that were attended by nearly 2,000 Tomorrow’s World subscribers. These presentations focused on the prophetic significance of world events making news today, and on what actually happened to the Church that Jesus Christ founded. Just last week, we held a General Ministerial Conference here in Charlotte that was attended by more than 230 of our ministers and wives from 18 countries. The sense of unity and shared sense of mission were truly inspiring. We are truly thankful to God for what is being done and needs to be done. The time is short.

Before closing, let me tell you about the inspiring and revealing “special offer” we have for you. If you wish to learn more about what is involved in this Work, we now offer you—absolutely free of charge—an exciting DVD which will give you the “inside story” of Tomorrow’s World telecast and of this Work more than I can do in this letter. You will see the leading personalities involved in producing the telecast and you will hear—straight from their hearts—why our presenters and leaders are involved in preaching this challenging message to the world even though it may bring severe persecution. You will “get to know” many of us through this DVD. So we hope that you will send for it, that you will “check us out,” and that God will move you to act on the awesome truths which you have been learning through the telecast, our magazines and our powerful booklets. As you will see, this Work is not a “one man show.” We have four truly inspired television presenters, dozens of other deeply converted leaders, and several thousand dedicated donors and co-workers who voluntarily back this Work with their prayers and their tithes and offerings. They realize where Christ is working. They want to do their part in the end-time Work which the Eternal God is now doing through His human servants.

And, while I am at it, what is holding you back? It is easy to just “go along” in your normal routine even though massive events are now beginning to occur all over the world in fulfillment of biblical prophecy. Truly the end of this present age is near. Now is the time to “lay up treasure in heaven” by your service to God and to your fellow man (Matthew 6:19-21). All of us who are “called” have a responsibility. We have a powerful Work to do! May God give you the faith and the courage to truly “prove all things” and act on the message He is giving you right now through this letter.

Meanwhile, my friends, thank you for your interest in this Work of the living Jesus Christ. Thank you for your prayers and your support. We pray that all of our listeners may be blessed by the understanding of world events and of the whole purpose of life which God has revealed to us and which we want to share with all of you. So be sure to write us today to request your absolutely free copy of this exciting DVD entitled, “Tomorrow’s World:  Behind the Scenes.” It will give you an unusual insight into this Work which Christ is doing at the end of this age. Be sure to return the enclosed card in the envelope provided and we will send you this vital DVD, absolutely free, upon your request. May God grant each of you the faith and the courage to act on the Truth God has been revealing to you.

With Christian love,

Roderick C. Meredith

Co-Worker Letter – March 2010

March 16, 2010

Dear Brethren and Co-Workers with Christ,

Greetings from Charlotte, NC! The Eternal God is indeed beginning to intervene and “shake” the nations. Just in the last several weeks, we have had a virtual wave of magnitude 6.0-plus earthquakes. Have you noticed? These powerful quakes have struck in Japan, Taiwan, Indonesia, Chile, Turkey and—just this weekend—another strong earthquake measuring 6.6 on the Richter Scale struck Japan.

What is going on?

Most news commentators scoff at the idea that the Creator may be starting to intervene in a special way to “shake” people to their senses. But the inspired Word of God tells us that the Creator—whose voice and actions shook His people at Mount Sinai—has promised, “Yet once more I shake not only the earth, but also heaven” (Hebrews 12:26). And Jesus Christ Himself directly predicted that at this time of the end, “There will be great earthquakes in various places, and famines and pestilences; and there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven” (Luke 21:11).

So, along with many “fearful sights”—which may be translated “terrors,” or terrorism!—and with increasing “famine” leading to mass starvation, and with a huge upsurge of “pestilence” or disease epidemics—we in these prophesied last days will experience Almighty God intervening to shake, to humble and to chasten the rebellious peoples of this deceived world. He will begin to let them know by these actions that He is God!

Dear friends and brethren, after describing many of the coming events, Christ instructed His servants, “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). We, who truly wish to honor and obey our Creator, should not be upset or dismayed. For Jesus also told His disciples, “Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near” (v. 28).

As many of you know, I have been directly involved in this Work of God for more than 60  years and I have never before seen “all the pieces of the prophetic puzzle” begin to come together in the way that is now occurring! It is truly exciting. And yet it is also sobering as we see our beloved nations going downand down and realize more than ever how real these things are!

As Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong would say from time to time: “This Work moves forward on its knees!” Our personal relationship with Jesus Christ is critical to the overall effectiveness of this Work! As all of us strive to grow closer to our Lord and Master, as we grow in grace and knowledge, God pours His blessings on all of us and His Work.

Just in the past two weeks, two of our TV programs generated more than 7,400 responses each from our TV coverage in countries around the world. These were the highest weekly responses we have seen since we launched the Tomorrow’s World television program 11 years ago. In just the past two months alone, more than 56,000 TV responses poured into our call centers and international offices. The TV response is presently up 16 percent over a year ago. And on top of this, 28,000 (49 percent) of the responses came from brand-new, first-time callers. Our brand-new-caller counts are up 27 percent over a year ago! For a telecast that has been airing for more than 11 years, this is amazing, and a great blessing. God has made it possible for us to spend less but accomplish so much more! We thank Him for these great blessings.

Christ’s Gospel is going out powerfully, by the Internet, television, radio, the Tomorrow’s World magazine, booklets, CDs, DVDs and Bible lessons. Already, just since the beginning of 2010, we have shipped nearly a half-million pieces of literature to people on our mailing list in countries around the world. As small as we are, a great Work is being done—greatly amplified by our Lord and Master, Jesus Christ.

As thousands of you know, we are fast approaching the Passover season! This is the time which pictures the death of Jesus Christ for our sins, for He was the ultimate “Passover Lamb” of God (John 1:29). May God help all of us to draw truly close to Him and have a profound realization of our need for Christ’s death to pay for our sins, and for Him to live within us so that we may overcome and truly fulfill the purpose for which God created us, and for which He gives us life and breath. For only through Christ living in us can we overcome and bear spiritual “fruit” (John 15:5).

We in this Work are truly going “all out” to try to prepare for Christ’s Second Coming. We are preaching the “Gospel of the Kingdom” as a “witness” to all the world (Matthew 24:14). And we are also preaching and publishing—in every way we can—the true “name” of Jesus Christ—the very meaning of everything He lived for and died for (Acts 8:12). But, at this time, we really do need your help and prayers more than ever! So I ask all of you, in Jesus’ name, to dig down deep and be as generous as you possibly can in helping support this Work of the living Christ!

The inspired Word of God tells us of “God’s mind”—how He looks at things. He inspired the Apostle Paul to write, “But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work” (2 Corinthians 9:6-8).

Dear brethren and co-workers, God has promised to bless each of you as you respond generously to Him! He will always take care of you, watch over you and give you “all sufficiency in all things”—as the Apostle Paul was inspired to write. We deeply need your help right now! May God help you to understand and to respond as you know Christ would want you to do.

May God inspire and bless all of you as you walk with Him, and as you give your lives into the hands of the One who loved you and died for you.

With Christian love,
Roderick C. Meredith

Co-Worker Letter – February 2010

February 10, 2010

Dear Brethren and Co-Workers with Christ,

Greetings from Charlotte, NC! Thank you very much for your help and support during these very hard financial times. The Work of Christ continues to grow, and our impact is increasing on a monthly basis. Now, we are having increasing numbers of responses to the Tomorrow’s World telecast, sometimes reaching the “more than six thousand a week” level here in America and Canada—plus many responses in Britain, Australia and elsewhere. The number of people acting on the Truth is constantly increasing as well, and we are thankful that God is calling additional hundreds of people to understand where His full Truth is being preached.

However, as many of you already recognize, America’s days as the“leading world power” are numbered! As the latest Kiplinger Letter reports, “If the federal deficit is a runaway train racing, with no brakes, toward the steep precipice… most states have already gone over the cliff” (January 29, 2010). If America is “heading” toward a steep precipice, financially, it is also heading for a similar precipice morally. For increasing numbers of television programs, Internet offerings and other media are definitely going right down into the drain—morally speaking! Sorry, but I can’t put it any better. Many of you recognize this—as even God’s people occasionally have images of vile sex practices, hedonistic violence and the gratuitous taking of God’s name in vain pushed at them as they are “surfing the channels” on television. Frankly, our American and British-descended peoples are morally “sick.” And the Eternal God is not pleased!

Dear friends and brethren, we really are approaching the end of an age. We in this Work really are called to proclaim the Good News of a coming World Government—the “Kingdom of God” under Jesus Christ as King of kings (Revelation 11:15). We all need to catch this vision!

Truly—if we really understand where we are headed—our hearts and our minds, our time and our financial resources ought to be heavily involved in supporting and facilitating the very Work which Christ is doing through His servants at this time! There has never been a time when it is more important to get involved in the Work of Christ than right now! For time truly is short—as I know many of you fully realize. So, I hope and pray that many of you will “dig down deep” to help us financially as best as you are able, plus pouring out your hearts to God in fervent prayer that God will see us through the trying financial times that our nations are experiencing, and that God’s Work is experiencing as well. We do need your help, and ask all who understand to respond generously at this time.

Also in this letter I want to discuss another major undertaking of the Work of God which all of us should pray about and be involved in. This involves the fact that—as we prepare for an entire new society—we need to realize that in the present society our educational system is going down the drain almost as much as our morals are. In fact, our educational system has had a terrible corrupting effect, as a whole, on the many millions of young people coming along in Britain, Canada, America, Australia, New Zealand, etc. In fact, the obvious failure of our college system has resulted in the highest dropout rates ever in this nation. A recent Newser headline proclaims, “Dropout rates turning US colleges into ‘failure factories’” (September 9, 2009). Sadly, many drop out because they have no real purpose in life.

However, dropping out of school can have devastating consequences. Research shows that only one in four college students will actually earn a college degree. Yet, half of all jobs in the next ten years will require education beyond secondary school. At the same time, the cost of attending an American college or university has alarmingly skyrocketed in recent years. The dream of providing a college education for their children is now beyond the reach of many families. Moreover, the downturn in the world economy makes 2010 a poor time for new college graduates to launch viable and successful careers.

Nevertheless, these are not the only issues, nor are they the most important! Students and their families face the reality of a higher education establishment preoccupied with political correctness, training for careers, and progressive secularism—as well as the uncertainties of a debt-burdened international economy. If this is not shocking enough, consider that the failure of colleges and universities to teach God’s way of life will result in devastating, catastrophic personal and societal consequences.

Even though most of the nation’s first and most prominent universities were founded in the name of Christianity, most of today’s educators are ignoring the foundation of truth—God’s Word. Students are taught that there are no absolutes, and that there is no ultimate authority except the self. Students rarely learn about God’s eternal law. Rather, they learn about secular humanism and materialism. The basis of much of today’s higher education is atheistic, anti-Christian, and God-rejecting concepts.

The consequences are clear. The Apostle Paul was inspired by God to write: “And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting” (Romans 1:28). What is the basic result? Verses 24-25 read: “Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever.”

True education, as Scripture presents it, goes far beyond knowledge production; it must teach the spiritual values without which all the other pursuits will lead to ruin! True education must be based on the Truth of God (Proverbs 1:7). All other foundations are but vanity. Only a Christian with a desire to learn from the Great Teacher, and to follow His example, will build a proper foundation to receive true knowledge. The world is filled with false values, so there is an obvious need to recapture true biblical values. Reliable knowledge of these true values comes from only one source—God’s Word. True education is training in Truth—and the Bible is the starting point for Truth! It reveals how to love God and how to love our neighbors. It teaches the true way of life. As Jesus Christ said in John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.”

As you know, all of us involved in this Work labor earnestly to live by and teach God’s way of life and proclaim the Gospel of the Kingdom of God to the entire world as a witness. And you have a vital and important part in this Work, through your earnest, heartfelt prayers and continued financial support.

An important part of this Work is its higher educational arm, Living University. Our LU students are taught to apply biblical values to every facet of life—including art, literature, science, music and human relations. All courses are based on the foundational principles of a godly education. Our mission is to bring instruction in God’s Way beyond geographical boundaries to all peoples, for “All the World is Our Campus.” We have already served hundreds of students from many different nations who have taken our Living University courses “online!”

Our primary focus is on adult learning through distance education provided over the Internet. This is a highly effective means of teaching God’s Truth. A new U.S. Department of Education study reported that “on average, students in online learning conditions performed better than those receiving face-to-face instruction.” No wonder that adult learners will represent 51% of students in higher education by the end of 2010.

I would especially encourage all of our young people to get involved with Living University. Our courses will not only help you lay a solid foundation for your future life, your family and your career. They may also help quite a number of you prepare for full-time service in the Work of God! As prophetic events continue to impact our entire society, millions are beginning to realize that this world’s society is not going to last in its present form. So, the Work of the living Jesus Christ will grow. We will need not only more ministers, but more educated, dedicated workers helping us in the many departments in God’s Work. So, we are hoping to have an increasing number of young students here at our Charlotte Headquarters as “on-campus” students. A few may be employed here in our offices as the need arises. Others will be assisted in acquiring off-campus employment. But our dedicated ministry and staff will help you and watch over you as best we can. And this will give increasing numbers of our Christian youth the opportunity to enjoy wholesome college activities together, build solid friendships, “date” Christian young people and so build their social skills and their circle of friends in a genuinely wholesome atmosphere.

As a special way to introduce many of you to our Living University classes, I am pleased to announce that beginning with the autumn semester in August 2010, anyone who has successfully completed our 24-lesson Tomorrow’s World Bible Study Course (which is available online, or by writing to us) may audit or complete for credit the Living University course Theology 135—Life and Teachings of Jesus—for free! We want to do this to introduce you to a more in-depth study of God’s Word. I hope you will take advantage of this exciting opportunity to be ready to “give an answer” for the hope that lies within us (1 Peter 3:15) and to prepare to teach God’s way to all human beings in the coming Kingdom of God (Isaiah 30:20-21).

Guys and gals, let us hear from you! As God makes possible, we want to have more of you here and build a real “college atmosphere” for you in addition to the hundreds of others taking our online courses. So come to Charlotte and be a “pioneer” in these early years of Living University. For those of you who are interested, please write or email Dr. Scott Winnail at: swinnail@livinguniv.com, or call him at: 704-844-1966 option 7. For more information on Living University, please visit our website at www.livinguniv.com.

Dear brethren and co-workers, please remember that the financial needs of the Work of the gospel are great, as there are millions yet to learn of God and His ways—and we need to increase our television coverage, print publications, and Internet initiatives. This world is literally “crying out” for the true message of Jesus Christ and His magnificent world government to be set up on this earth. May God inspire all of you to join us in doing all we can to prepare for the soon-coming Kingdom!

With Christian love,

Roderick C. Meredith
