Dear Brethren,

Recently, I was reading one of the Brethren Letters that I wrote in 2010, and thought I would send it to you once again. We should always love the TRUTH of God and NEVER let go! The example we set is important!

Please have a wonderful Sabbath!

Your Brother in Christ,

Greetings Brethren,

A couple of days ago my wife received a note from a fine lady we have known for several years. It was good to hear from her again. We attended another Church of God group together, about 9-10 years ago. She and her husband are no longer with that organization. We were pleased to learn that they have remained loyal to Christ and have NEVER surrendered the TRUTH of God. Sadly, many thousands of former Church of God members have let men take their crowns, but this couple has neither given up nor given in. (Revelation 3:12, I Timothy 6:12, Hebrews 3:6)

Most of you probably would not know these members, but God the Father and Jesus Christ know exactly who they are. They have not been overlooked by God or Christ!

We are shown in Revelation 3:12-13 the following… “Him that overcomes will I make a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of My God, and the name of the city of My God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from My God: and I will write upon him My new name. He that has an ear let him hear what the Spirit says unto the churches.”

There are scattered members (only God truly knows what that number is), who have remained loyal, and who have NOT surrendered the TRUTH. We can read in III John 4, these important words… “I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.”

Brethren, we must continue to pray for God’s people. So many of them have been brutalized and abused spiritually and emotionally by pastors, elders, deacons (even other lay-members), within various COG corporations. We must show by our fruit that we are different from other groups; that we apply right standards and display the good FRUIT of God’s Holy Spirit. WE WILL show by our actions, that we will NEVER SURRENDER (or alter) GOD’S TRUTH WHAT-SO-EVER!!! This is our DUTY before God!!!

Your Brother in Christ,
