An Open letter: To the United & Living Churches of God
Dearly beloved children of the Most High.
The definition of sin is not an arbitrary decision on God’s part. God
did not sit down one day and decide that he would allow certain things and forbid other things, just so that he could be in
control and dominate his creation.
God has existed for countless millennia; and during that time he has acquired a wisdom and experience beyond the wildest
dreams and most vivid imaginations of humanity. His knowledge is beyond the knowledge of ALL humanity together;
it is greater than ALL of the knowledge of ALL humans who have ever lived: multiplied upon itself.
God was before the physical universe began; he
made the universe and set its physical laws in motion. He set the stars and the galaxies in the heavens. He
made the earth and all that on it is. God is the most wondrous and magnificent family in existence.
Inhabiting eternity and sustaining ALL things.
God knows the behaviour that leads to eternal life. He has proved that by HIS ETERNAL LIFE.
He knows the kind of conduct that leads to decay and death and he knows the actions that will bring destruction and
This awesome God has
chosen to create mankind in his own image and to offer them the opportunity to become the sons of God. To
be changed into spirit and live for eternity as he does. God loves his children, he does not want to suffer
the agony of watching his children die. Therefore he has shared with them the ways that will lead to life,
peace, harmony and true happiness. He has given us: HIS LAW!
There is nothing arbitrary about the commandments
of God. They are the way to all that men desire, the path to an eternal life of happiness, fulfillment,
satisfaction and peace.
Satan wants to take over from God. He wants to demonstrate that he is greater than God by destroying
what God is trying to accomplish. If he can defeat God; then he will become the new: King of the Universe. He
has the ambition to replace Almighty God. To do so he must stop God from producing vast armies of children.
If Satan cannot defeat God now, how can he do so when God expands his family by billions of persons; united in love
and harmony within one big family?
My friends, mankind is full of sin. Sin is that conduct that leads to death. Jesus Christ came to save
us from the burden of sin. He came to save us from the penalty of death by dying in our place as our sacrifice.
He also came to qualify and become our High Priest; to intercede for us with the Father, so that the power to OVERCOME
sin itself; would be given to us by the gift of God’s spirit. Christ came to be sacrificed for his
creation; and he came to empower us to turn away from the path of death! PLEASE study our Hebrews series
on the priesthood and mission of Jesus Christ. This first of five articles is here, the remainder including James are indented form the first article on the
Jesus said; Mat 11: 28: Come unto me,
all ye that labour and are heavy laden and I will give you rest. 29: Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for
I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30: For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
Burdened by what: By the suffering and
trials that sin brings. The way of Christ, the way of God; is the way to life eternal. It relieves all
suffering, it banishes death and sorrows; and brings peace. Christ came to overcome sin to show
us that IT CAN BE DONE THROUGH THE POWER OF JESUS CHRIST LIVING WITHIN US.
We are not to make excuses for sin, we are not to continue in sin, we are not to compromise with sin; WE
ARE TO STOP SINNING!
When we commit ourselves
to live God’s way, the way to life; Satan rushes to attack us by burdening us with all manner of opposition.
These are NOT burdens from God! They are burdens from Satan, piled upon you in his hope that he
can discourage you. That he can get you to believe that God’s way is too difficult and give up.
Brethren: To compromise with
God’s way is to turn away from Almighty God!
This world is full of evils and abominations; the pressure on God’s people is tremendous.
It is written Mat 24: 12: And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall
wax cold. Iniquity does abound and the love of many has grown cold.
People still love their families, their
pets, hobbies, cars, ect; so what does this mean? It means that their love of the ways of God shall
grow cold. That they shall begin to compromise with the Word and the law of God. That
they shall slowly water down their commitment as they compromise with one thing and then another and then another, due to
the pressures of this life placed upon them by a satanic society.
Dearly beloved: Did you know that before
1969; it was unthinkable to go out to restaurants on a Sabbath or a Holy Day, to buy and sell, or to compromise about quitting
times, or to do any work [including cooking], or travel on Sabbath and Holy Days? Did you know; that it was
not until Herbert Armstrong adopted the Primacy of Peter heresy, and claimed the right to bind and loose God’s Word,
that a watering down of the Sabbath doctrine came in? The truth about the Christian Sabbath. And the Great falling Away.
Your Doctrinal Committees allow compromise after compromise with the Word of God. They do
this out of a misguided desire to relieve the burden of the people; not realizing that they are leading people to their destruction
by leading them AWAY FROM GOD's Law; which is THE WAY TO ETERNAL LIFE.
By being more afraid
of offending the people then you are afraid of offending God; you compromise on Sabbath, Holy Day and Marriage Doctrine.
Allowing divorce at will, and endorsing pollution of the Sabbath and Holy Days. Repent quickly; for God will not hold
you guiltless for this hardness of heart toward HIM.
Brethren: We ought not compromise with
the Word of God, just because Satan persecutes us! Instead we need to seek out our God all the more,
asking his help to remain committed to him and to avoid the temptation to compromise and turn away. For ONLY those
who OVERCOME sin shall be saved! Those who compromise with God's Word; will NOT be among the chosen at the resurrection!
Beloved: you are tired, weak and
divided, because you do not rely upon the strength of our Mighty God. Instead you think that you have a better way than Almighty
God, so you compromise and turn away from his IMMUTABLE UNCHANGABLE LAW. And in doing so you teach the people
to sin, you teach situation ethics [which is hypocrisy] and you have grown lukewarm for the things of God. You have LOST YOUR
ZEAL. You are trying to do things your own way; instead of God's way. That
is righteousmess from the self and not Godly righteousness! Turn back to HIM while he may be found.
Oh my friends; repent quickly: lest
you be ejected from the body of Christ and thrown into the fire of affliction, Rev 3: 15:
I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. 16: So then because thou art
lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. In the fire of tribulation,
you shall repent of watering down the Word of God, of compromising with God’s law, or you shall NOT have any part in
the resurrection of the first fruits.
You are the much beloved children of the Most High. The Eternal loves you with an abiding
and passionate zeal. Therefore; repent quickly and turn unto him with a WHOLE HEART. For he will correct
you rather than see you spiritually destroyed, Rev 3: 19: As many as I love, I rebuke
and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent
Seek out your God with ALL YOUR HEARTS. Turn away from COMPROMISING
with his law. Embrace your God: with love and enthusiasm and zeal; and you shall find him, Rev 3: 20: Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will
come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. 21: To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in
my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.
