Dear Brethren,

With all that is going on in the world today, we should keep in mind this one, great spiritual truth: The ultimate cause of all human problems is that mankind as a whole has left God's way of love and truth to go their own way under the sway and deception of Satan the devil. The problems of this world can never be solved by human efforts—not by politics, economics, technology or "religion"—because they are spiritual in nature. John writes that "the whole world lies in the power of the wicked one" (I John 5:19). Only Jesus Christ can destroy Satan's iron grip on humanity—which He will do at His return: "And He [Christ] will destroy … the face of the covering which covers all people, and the veil [of deception] that is woven over all nations" (Isa. 25:7).

During the prophet Jeremiah's time, God called on the people of Israel to repent and return to Him. " 'IFyou will return, O Israel,' says the Lord, 'Return to Me. And IFyou will put away your abominations out of My sight, then you shall not be removed, and will swear, "As the Lord lives," in truth, in judgment, and in righteousness; then the nations shall bless themselves in Him, and in Him they shall glory' " (Jer. 4:1-2).

God repeatedly spoke to Israel and Judah by His prophets, pleading with them to repent and return to Him. But they refused because they could not see that their problems were spiritual—rooted in forsaking God. It is the same today. People want blessings from God, they want things to go well for them—while they continue to live in their sins.

But God cannot, will not, bless people—or nations—under such circumstances!

God warned Israel, just as He does us today: "Woe to them, for they have fled from Me! Destruction unto them—because they have sinned against Me. Though I have redeemed them, yetthey have spoken lies against Me. And they have not cried to Me with their heart, when they howled on their beds; they gather themselves for grain and wine, and they rebel against Me. Though I have bound and strengthened their arms, yetthey think evil against Me. They return, but not to the Most High" (Hosea 7:13-16).

Like those of ancient Jerusalem, we claim we are God's people, expecting His blessings. Yet we run to evil, multiply sin and exalt perversion. God warned them, and He warns us: " 'As a fountain keeps fresh her waters, so she keeps fresh her evil; violence and spoil is heard in her; continually before Me are grief and wounds. O Jerusalem, take warning, lest My soul depart from you; lest I make you desolate, a land without people.' Thus says the Lord of hosts, 'They shall thoroughly glean the remnant of Israel like a vine; pass your hand again as a grape gatherer over the branches. To whom shall I speak, and give warning, that they may hear? Behold, their ears are not circumcised, and they cannot hearken. Behold, the Word of the Lord is to them a reproach; they have no delight in it' " (Jer. 6:7-10).

­In spite of the troubles mankind faces, most today will not listen. Nevertheless, we are commanded by God to warn them:"Cry aloud, do not spare, lift up your voice like a ram's horn, and show My people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins" (Isa. 58:1). This is all a part of preaching the Gospel to the world. We are to warn people of their sins and instruct them to seek God while He may be found—while there is still time to repent, as God always honors repentance. Here is the message we are to preach, whether they will hear and repent or not: "Seek the Lord while He may be found; call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; and let him return to the Lord, and He will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon. 'For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor your ways My ways,' says the Lord. 'For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain comes down, and the snow from the heavens, and does not return there, but waters the earth, and makes it bring forth and bud, and gives seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall My Word be which goes out of My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall certainly do what I sent it to do' " (Isa. 55:6-11).

While most will not listen, there are some who will heed the warning and turn to God.

Just before He ascended into heaven, Jesus gave His disciples this command: "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to the whole creation. The one who believes and is baptized shall be saved, but the one who does not believe shall be condemned" (Mark 16:15-16).

Matthew gives this account, showing that God's people are to continue to preach the Gospel until the end of the age: "And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, 'All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. Therefore, go and make disciples in all nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit; teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you. And lo, I am with you always, even until the completion of the age'" (Matt. 28:18-20)

Luke further defines the preaching of the Gospel to the world: "And He said to them, 'These are the words that I spoke to you when I was yet with you, that all the things which were written concerning Me in the Law of Moses and in the Prophets and in the Psalms must be fulfilled.' Then He opened their minds to understand the Scriptures, and said to them, 'According as it is written, it was necessary for the Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day. And in His name, repentance and remission of sins should be preached to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem…. But you yourselves shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be My witnesses, both in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and unto the ends of the earth' " (Luke 24:44-47; Acts 1:8).

Jesus' command to preach the Gospel is also for the Church of God today. Although we live in the end times, we do not know how much time remains until Christ's return. We may have many more years, because there are numerous prophecies that have yet to be fulfilled. Regardless, all of the churches of God—wherever they are located, in whatever nation—are to continue to preach the Gospel as a warning to the world. Jesus said, "And this gospel of the kingdom shall be proclaimed in all the world for a witness to all nations; and then shall the end come" (Matt. 24:14). Mark writes, "And the gospel must first be published among all nations" (Mark 13:10). The Church is also to feed the flock—to prepare it for the return of Christ and the Kingdom of God.

Today, with advanced technology, God has made it possible to preach the Gospel to the whole world through a variety of avenues. For starters, there are 6.8 billion Bibles in the world, covering every major language; then there is the seemingly endless array of books and booklets available that, to one degree or another, teach the Gospel. Add to that all the digital means of preaching the Gospel—audio, video, digital Bibles, books, booklets. God has literally filled this world with His Word—yet mankind continues in sin and wickedness.

In addition to conventional radio and television, the most effective means of preaching the Gospel today is through the Internet. Because it can potentially reach anywhere in the world 24/7, all of the church of God organizations use it. Moreover, nearly all of modern Christendom uses the Internet to preach and teach their version of "Christianity." Today's situation is somewhat comparable to the circumstances Paul wrote of when he was imprisoned in Rome: "Brethren, I want you to know that the things befalling me have turned out rather unto the advancement of the gospel; so that my bonds in Christ have become manifest in the whole palace, and to all others; and most of the brethren, trusting in the Lord, have been emboldened by my bonds to speak the Word more abundantly without fear.

"Indeed, some are proclaiming Christ out of envy and strife, but some with good intentions. On the one hand, those who are preaching out of a contentious spirit, and not purely, are thinking to add grief to my bonds. But on the other hand, those who are preaching out of love know that I am set for the defense of the gospel. What then shall I say? Nevertheless, in every way, whether in pretext or in truth, Christ is being proclaimed; and I rejoice in this, yes, and will also continueto rejoice" (Phil. 1:12-18).

Today, with all of the Bibles and study tools available—combined with the vast resources of the Internet—anyone searching for the truth of God can find it. Proving the truth, as the Bereans did, is now so much easier: "They received the Word with all readiness of mind andexamined the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so" (Acts 17:11).

In addition to Bibles, books, booklets and articles, the CBCG has four major active Web sites: 1) With topics covering nearly every aspect of the Bible, this site features almost 1500 sermons and Bible Studies, including many in-depth study series. 2) This online video site was started 2½ years ago and contains over 325 half-hour videos designed for new people searching for the truth. 3) CBCG—Spanish Web site. 4) Features nearly 500 sermon videos with a new one posted every week.

Our overseas offices now have their own Web sites—Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and, soon, South Africa.

Our regular mailing list in Hollister has grown to 3,200. The overseas offices have their own mailing lists. Canada and Australia each have approximately 200 on their mailing lists, and the combined total for all five offices is approximately 550.

All of these make up the conventional and digital tools we use to preach the Gospel to the world and to feed the flock of God.

We are currently developing a Web site that will offer TheHoly Bible In Its Original Order as downloadable text and audio files. At this time, I am half way through recording the New Testament and hope to have that project ready for editing by the Feast of Tabernacles. Once edited, each book will be posted online. This past year I recorded Psalms, Proverbs and Job. We will send these to you in next month's mailing.

In this mailing we are sending a special DVD sermon: God, Creation andSand. You will be amazed to see how beautiful even a tiny grain of sand is when magnified 250 times! Indeed, it reveals how great and how awesome our God is! Remember God's promise to Abraham after he had offered up his son, Isaac, as a sacrifice: "And the angel of the Lord called to Abraham out of heaven the second time, and said, 'By Myself have I sworn,' says the Lord, 'because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only son; that in blessing I will bless you, and in multiplying I will multiply your seed like the stars of the heavens, and as the sand which is upon the seashore' " (Gen. 22:15-17). Keep this in mind as you view this DVD—enjoy!

Beginning on the next page, we have included a good number of letters and e-mails with statistics concerning our Web sites for the first six months of the year.

Once again, brethren, we thank you for your love and prayers. My wife, Dolores, is nearly back to normal. Thank you for praying for her. We pray for you daily—for your spiritual growth in love and faith, and for your physical health and healing. We thank you for your continued support through your tithes and offerings. As you will see, God has indeed blessed us so that together we are preaching the Gospel to the world and feeding the flock—all through the power of God's Holy Spirit.

With love in Christ Jesus,

Fred R. Coulter

Recent E-mails and Letters Sent to CBCG and Church at Home

Hello Mr. Coulter: Still reading the "Love Series"—I can't put it down! They did not teach this growing up in WW. Though I was young, I remember Mr. Armstrong talking about the lake of fire all the time and how the brethren just "did not get it." So, finally, I feel that I am getting to know God on His level … love level. It is great and I appreciate you and thank God for you in my prayers.—C. A., Illinois

Hello all. You have been sending me CDs and other materials for the last few months. I wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart. Fred's work is refreshing and needed for the Church, or what's left of it, today. PLEASE keep sending me these CDs and the other [materials] as I soak up the messages. God Bless and keep you.—E. R., Wisconsin

Good afternoon Fred: Thank you for your teaching videos…. The Sabbath is like taking a College Course: "Spiritual Food #110…." Best regards.—H. L., Florida

Dear Fred: I thank God for your teaching of the brethren and all the work CBCG is doing. As you have stated many times, it is by the grace of GOD that any of us are even willing or able to come to Him and ask for forgiveness or anything else that we have or do or have become. I have been learning by listening to all the sermons you have made available online for the past four years while driving to and from work every day (45 minutes each way). Sometimes I am not sure what subject to hear about, so I pray for guidance in choosing. The sermon or series I pick is always relevant to something in my life, or something I had wondered about comes up in the sermon. There is so much I could tell you about how God has been changing me inside that this letter would crash the Internet if I put it all in here. So I just want to thank you and all those who support the CBCG, and most of all I thank our Father. So please keep it coming as long as God allows because we all need inspired teachers like yourself. Sincerely.—T. P., Massachusetts

Dear Fred: Have all the anointed cloths helped me? Get a load of this news: my LDL cholesterol number is 83! Down 35% since November last year. Except for my weight, I have had these life changing occurrences: 1. Elimination of cancer from liver; 2. Shrinking of aortal aneurysm; 3. Blood pressure normal; 4. IBS gone; 5. Condition of heart and lung capacity improved. Thanks be to God and to you, Mr. Coulter. I am very happy today.—S. K., Utah

Dear Sir: I am highly impressed with the work I find on this Web site. I have sent an e-mail to the person in South Africa. I would like to see if I can make it to a Festival site as well. I am, perhaps, a liberal Arian (not Trinitarian at all!). I have kept the Sabbath for 40 years. I was with the WCG and left after 1994 and attended UCG, then (after the split) I went to GCG, met my wife and married, then left when they split and became a pastor for CCG. I then realized their mistakes, tried SDA, but was shocked at the apostasy, then tried COG7—but they are drifting past Binitarianism into Trinity theology. Very disappointing. I feel compelled to develop videos, and have written several books and booklets. However, having now found you, I think, "Why reinvent the wheel?" It seems you have great understanding and insight, and I can agree with you and not feel guilty about my association. I hope I can make contact with the person in South Africa, and we can work towards a common goal, and keep the festivals. What will the future hold for us? Perhaps great things. Yours in Christ.—P. V., South Africa

Dear Pastor Coulter: I would first like to express my great appreciation for all the wonderful knowledge that you have given me in your CDs, DVDs, books, downloads, and sermons. They have helped me so much in finding the true way to salvation and in the worship of God. I am enthusiastically awaiting the delivery of the Bible I ordered. I already own the New Testament version, which I use with the KJV, Bullinger, Moffatt, and Schocken Bibles in my study. I don't believe in "mainstream" religion because they use the Bible as a smorgasbord and doctrine of men as their basis. I would also like to thank you for the books you suggested for background readings. Thank you very much for your time.—E. F., West Virginia

I have been visiting your Web site since October, 2012, and I am very impressed with the Holy Day sermons. I see where you have a proper translation of the Holy Bible. Please continue the good work of proclaiming the Gospel of the Kingdom of God.—E. R., Jamaica

Thank you kindly for the information on baptism. It answered one burning question I had…. The literature specifically addressed that to my satisfaction. I perceive that you are a very learned person—from your teachings and interpretation of the Scriptures. Thank you again for your service.—L. M., South Dakota

Thank you for the sermon you sent to me. We are interested in theology and we want to learn. Your materials are really nice and acceptable to us. We believe that you are honest and want to serve God. We ask God to show us how to serve Him.—D. V., Croatia

Hi Fred: I wanted to let you know how much I have appreciated receiving the "Covenants of God" [studies]. WOW! I have learned so much from them. I know that as I read and study God's Word I will be understanding so much more. In listening to you as you teach us, I will have more understanding. Thanks!—D. M., Oregon

May I request the free materials that can help me in my personal improvement and in my Bible study in my local church. Your materials are a great help and I am happy you are going to include me on your mailing list. Thank so much!—R. B., Philippines

I appreciate so much the sermons that keep us informed on everything going on. I had read about Trans-humanism on the Internet and when I received your sermons on this topic I was completely flabbergasted. Thank you, and may God bless you always.—G. A., Florida

My friend, Fred Coulter: I just listened to your sermon on repentance. I did enjoy it greatly. You are still turning people to God, giving us hope, and teaching us the greatness of our calling. Many thanks to God for showing us the sin we were living in by being a part of our old beliefs. Thanks to you for all the tapes that taught us how wrong we were. Thanks to God for you, that I can open my Bible and understand and know that God has put his Holy Spirit in me…. My hope for you is that God will keep you around to help all those who don't have any hope. Keep up the Work. Your friend.—L. L., Canada

Hi Fred: We wish to express our sincere thanks for the continuing supply of invaluable information you have made available, particularly at this time when this world seems on the brink complete chaos. Thank you again and best regards.—C. M., New Zealand

Hello Mr. Coulter: God bless you for the work you are doing. I am interested in receiving A Harmony of the Gospels in Modern English and The Appointed Times of Jesus the Messiah. Thank you.—D. F., Georgia

Dear Fred: What a wonderful book—A Harmony of the Gospels. I didn't want to stop reading it. It showed me a lot about Jesus that I did not know. This is an awesome book and I thank you for it. The crucifixion of Jesus always makes me want to cry. What would it have been like to live back then, when Jesus walked the earth, to hear Him teach all that He knew? I can't thank you enough for this wonderful book.

Mr. Coulter: I have read your book Lord, What Should I Do? and found it to be utterly amazing! My wife and I are the ones described in the book as being "disenchanted" by the church. We were members of a main-line denomination, but could no longer stand for their liberalism, politics, and bureaucratic hierarchy. I was trying to become a minister and became frustrated with the system. My family and I no longer attend church; we teach our children at home. Some people criticize us for this, but we can no longer put up with denominationalism. We would rather worship God at home than deal with the garbage. Furthermore, I refuse to support a denomination physically, spiritually, or financially that does not adhere to God's Word. I hope to [serve as a] Pastor one day soon, but I desire to have an independent church where we can adhere to the Bible only. Thank you for your book and please keep us in your prayers that God will lead us where He wants us.—B. F., Pennsylvania

I have recently joined one of the churches of God, but when I ask certain questions I get a lot of different answers—then I'm left confused. However, I do enjoy your sermons and feel you make the most sense of all.—S. S., Canada

I have heard so much about you and this Web site and I would love to know more about God … and learn more about the Bible to understand it better. Thanks.—L. A., Kentucky

Thank you for all the Bible-teaching materials you have sent. I will be glad when I am able to download more of the DVD materials. Watching them at home on the Sabbath makes me feel more like I am in church.—V. P., Michigan

God bless you on your great work. I am requesting your sermon CDs, as I cannot listen online. Thank you very much.—D. D., Jamaica

I live in a poverty-stricken town plagued with drugs and alcohol. I am married and we have three great children…. The book The Day Jesus the Christ Died was a tremendous account that I was able to read and then explain to my family—how Christ was treated, betrayed and loved at that time. These books give me information that I can present to my younger family members…. Thank you for everything and for all of the wonderful books you provide my family.—R. W., Pennsylvania

Greetings Fred: I had contact with your church a few years ago. Our group in Ukraine asks that you send some calendars with the dates of the Feasts for 2013, and some brochures on the doctrines of the Church of God. Shalom.—Y. A., Ukraine

I have received the materials you promised! You are so very kind! I do not know how to thank you enough. I appreciate your kindness and generosity…. It is nice to know that there are Pastors who still care about people and not just their denominations. You are the kind of Pastor this world needs more of—someone who genuinely cares about people, not power or paychecks. Once again, thank you and God bless you!—B. F., Pennsylvania

Thank you for all the materials. I'm truly grateful, as now I'm a more mature Christian than before. I thank Jesus Christ for you and your team for making it possible for a lot of us. May God continue to bless you all on the tremendous work you're doing.—K. W., Jamaica

There are literally thousands of Christian churches in the world today. Almost all of them interpret the Bible based on the false doctrines, dogmas and deceptions of the papal beast! They do not study the Bible to let it interpret itself! I believe you are the closest to the true foundation of any church I have found.—C. W., New York

Thank you for sending me the baptism booklet…. I started coming to the truth through my mother-in-law about two and a half years ago. She belonged to another church of God, and after I started studying with them I started to see some things that weren't right. So I started looking into other churches and that's when I found you. You are the only one that I have found to be teaching the truth and nothing but the truth…. I do believe that God has called me and that He has been trying to get my attention for a long time—and now He has it, and I am focused on Him right now and forever. Thank You.—J. M., Texas

All this time we have neglected to say a big thank you for the converting of the sermons and other verbal teachings into text. This is a fantastic way to follow along and learn. Please thank the person or persons for the text and the layout. Thank you.—R. M. F., Ohio

Thanks for these precious Bible teachings—we need more, especially in this day and time. I am thirsty to know more of the Word of God.—M. W., North Carolina

Thank you so much for the Monthly Letter and the wonderful sermons and literature. Thank you so much.—D. W., Washington

Please send me your book The Appointed Times of Jesus the Messiah. Thank you very much. I recently discovered the [CBCG] Web siteand find it so beneficial. The Church at Home site is wonderful too! I have casually mentioned [them] to friends in e-mails…. Thank you again. These Web sites have come at a very complicated time in my life. I am so anxious to hear Mr. Coulter that I tune in many times when I am just doing mundane things at home. But I hear myself saying, "I better listen to this again when I am not doing anything," in order to concentrate.—S. F., California

Thank you for speaking up on current events, prophecy, and the sins in the land. Why are so many churches of God afraid to speak up? In the large corporate groups we hear very little on prophecy and current events any more…. I am very much trying to prepare mentally, spiritually and physically for the pending collapse of this nation. Your ministry is aiding me in this and I am seeking fellowship with other brethren that are informed. Thank You.—D. M., Arizona

Greetings Pastor Fred: I want to pass along the warmest blessings to you and your fine staff. I just concluded your monumental book Occult Holidays or God's Holy DaysWhich? Simply put: a life-changing, life-enhancing book. Finally, someone who is led by the Holy Spirit put it all together and made it simple and interesting to read. Well laid out. Excellent scholarship. It will be one of my primary reference books, next to the likes of Josephus. Also love your Bible in the "original order." Thank you! With much brotherly love.—R. T., California

Dear CBCG: My parents began sharing CDs of yours with me a while back and gifted me with a copy of TheHoly Bible In Its Original Order. Thank you so much for what you do and for being faithful in the Word of God…. I'm also interested in the Baptism Series (I was baptized in Worldwide at Ambassador in '95—a very strange time). Thank you again for obeying God and feeding the flock.—J. C., Texas

I recently received a copy of The Day Jesus the Christ Died. As I surveyed its contents, it became clear to me that this is a powerful and informative book…. Now, I am officially requesting TheAppointed Times of Jesus the Messiah. I am working towards the establishment of an assembly of faith, along with others, and we will be emphasizing the keeping of God's commandments and holding to the testimony of Jesus Christ. I respect the credentials of Fred Coulter, and what he is communicating is biblically sound.—G. P., Florida

Please continue to send your teaching videos; I was really blessed by what you already sent me. THANK YOU.—N. O., Pennsylvania

Hi Mr. Coulter: I sure appreciate your weekly messages and your staying with the Scriptures. If more of us would do this, we'd open up new doors that we'd never dreamed of (especially under the old fallen administrations). Right now I see just a few groups preaching the truth in a pure form, and I thank the Eternal for this. God does have His true ministers on the earth at this time.—J. H., New Mexico

Mr. Coulter: I must say that I am very impressed with the information you have so painstakingly compiled. I have been a member of the body of Christ since 1980, but have not attended for the past five years due to what I see as the immaturity of the leadership…. We would like very much to get your CDs so we can better understand what lies ahead for the scattered brethren.—L. W., Oregon

I look forward to your correspondence every week and enjoy listening to Brother Coulter's messages. Thank you for all you do in proclaiming God's truth.—C. E., Alabama

Hello to all at CBCG: I've found no one, even within the churches of God, who can teach the truth at such an in-depth level as Fred…. Thanks again for your tireless work in preaching, printing, and publishing the truth of God with all your heart. In Christ.—D. D., Indiana

I grew up in Worldwide and started attending the Church of God again after 20 years of being away. I am writing to request that I be added to your mailing list. It would save me the work of looking to your Web site daily to see if there is anything new to read up on…. I already own and greatly appreciate The Holy Bible In Its Original Order (2nd Edition). I have the Baptism booklet and TheAppointed Times of Jesus the Messiah, and I regularly tithe to the CBCG here in Canada. I take in the Church at Home broadcasts quite often…. You ARE making a difference out here. Peace be to you all and may God richly bless the work which He has entrusted to you. Sincerely.—J. K., Canada

Fred: I wanted to thank you for your online material and your printed material. I have antagonistic family members who gave up on church because of the 1995 debacle in the WCG. They painted the ministry as all-evil with a wide brush. Love to you and your family always!—C. R., Indiana

Dear Fred: I just wanted to thank you and all of those helping you for providing all of the scriptural information. It is certainly a blessing when I am unable to make it to services…. I also listen to the MP3s and watch Church at Home DVDs, especially when I can't make it to services. All of these are a true blessing. May our heavenly Father bless and keep you, your family, and all of the brethren helping with this enormous task healthy and strong, spiritually and physically.—L. H., Indiana

Dear Fred: WOW!!! I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your generous and thoughtful GIFTS!... I will continue to listen to your shows and I will tell others about them too. Please pray for me, and thank you again, Fred. I so much appreciate your kind heart and thoughtful deeds.—G. W., New Jersey

I want to say "thank you" for proclaiming the truth of God and his Holy Word—because it needs to be preached. May God bless you and keep you. Keep on doing what you're doing and let the truth be known.—S. B., North Carolina

Mr. Coulter: I really thank God for you…. I have learned so much since my calling in 1985. Thank you and please keep on teaching us. WE LOVE YOU!—R. H., Texas

Thank you so much for opening my eyes to a lot of things. I want to let people (even other pastors) know what I have learned. What is really sad is that pastors read the Word of God but they teach Christmas and other things that are not in the Bible! That's really scary because so many people are being taught a "different Bible." God bless you all for the awesome blessing you have been in getting the truth out.—M. G., California

Mr. Coulter: I am writing with thanks-giving to God for you and your ministry. Thank you for the books, CDs, DVDs, letters, and the Baptism Series…. I just finished listening to your study on the "Mark of the Beast" and it was awesome in it's clarity.—O. N., Pennsylvania

Hello: I am a former member of the Worldwide Church of God, baptized on Pentecost, 1974. I remember Mr. Coulter's Harmony of the Gospels, which I bought at the Feast in Mt. Pocono. I left the WCG in the early 90s. I couldn't take the changes being implemented…. I had to leave. Thank you.—R. Y., New York

Dear CBCG: I would like to be on your mailing list. My mother has been sharing your video sermons with me. I can't wait to get my own. I believe you are the true church I have been longing for! THANK YOU with all my heart.—D. S., Pennsylvania

Dear Fred: I would like to thank you for all that you do for all of us. The greatest blessing that God could have done was to let me find your Web site. You have the art of making the Bible alive. I pray every day for God to inspire you and that He might bless you and your family. Thank you once again for everything.—G. H., Belgium

Dear Mr. Fred Coulter: Your Web sites are good places to learn the Bible. I have been with you for two years now through your Web site, and we are growing spiritually daily. Thank you. God bless you.—S. J., Nigeria

Hello Fred: I am writing to let you know that I really appreciate the booklets you have been sending for some time. This is the only "church" I can get to because it's right in my own home. I am a disabled veteran and wheelchair bound. I struggle financially from month to month, barely making it with the little pay I am receiving…. You and your ministry are in my thoughts and prayers daily. Thanks and may God bless.—T. S., Ohio

I am only 17 years old and from Myanmar (formerly Burma). I really love to read. My goal was to be an evangelist. I'm in high school now, my senior year. If you can, send me a book [on how to be a] Christian; I want to read it. Thank you.—J. R. L., Myanmar

I have been in God's Church for 57 years. I guess that's proof it's never too late to learn. Thank you for your continuing service. I pray for you and yours always.—P. W., Nevada

Dear Mr. Coulter: I was really shocked about The Holy Bible In Its Original Order—I did not know it was a gift! Thank you for everything! Sincerely.—R. F., New York

Hi Fred: Your new CBCG Youth Page is amazing!... I am 16 and have always wanted to talk with people my age about the Bible and your sermons. Thank you so much for thinking of us kids; I know this will be a great tool to help us learn and connect!—O. M., Indiana

To the CBCG: Recently some brethren visited our locality and shared a Church at Home DVD. We found the teaching to be informative and encouraging for our Sabbath meeting and are therefore requesting these DVDs…. We also have been listening to your sermons online and reading/listening to the Word to mature in the Lord. Thank you again.—D. W., Texas

Hello: I have been listening to your sermons for a while now and can't wait to get to each one. I have a lot to get to, but want to ultimately hear each one. I am currently a member of one of the churches of God, but [realize] that something has not been right for a very long time…. Thank you.—L. D., Ohio

Dear Fred: I just wanted to tell you that I am so thankful to God Almighty for your being there. I have just finished viewing your sermon Where We Are Today, and I must say that it was very moving and truthful. Praise to God Almighty for His truth! It is such a perilous time, and I too have been doing a lot of groaning these last few days and weeks. We all need to take on the cloak of the Servant of God and proclaim His glory and shout out the hope for us all. God bless you greatly Fred Coulter.—M. C., Alabama

Hi Fred: I am preparing another sermon and use a lot of your material. Good solid stuff, much appreciated.—B. B., Canada

I read your writing on the Sabbath and I really appreciate it. That's a great job; God has richly blessed you. I truly believe in the Sabbath, and I pray to God that we stand boldly and preach His words to all mankind. GOD BLESS YOU.—D. A., Ohio

Hi: I found your Web site last week on the Sabbath. I downloaded some of your sermons (trans-humanism, the two witnesses and Elijah, and the erroneous lunar-Sabbath calendar scheme)…. I was very fascinated with your presentations and I am going to watch and read more from your site. Jesus said, "My sheep hear My voice and they follow Me." Well, after listening to you, it seems clear to me that you speak the truth. I have been studying the Word of God for the past 13 years and have sifted through an awful lot of material. God's Spirit always leads me into truth and reveals error. That's how I knew when I first read the claim that the Sabbath was based solely on the new moon that it was total error. I keep the Sabbath and Holy Days at home. I am disabled and can drive but have no vehicle, so I am very limited in my goings. Thank you for such enlightening material. I am eager to hear more.—R. U., Iowa

I will take this opportunity to give you my, and my wife's, most sincere thanks for the work you do in helping us. What a marvelous work you are doing in the name of God for His people. Your Church at Home videos are recorded perfectly and the transition to disk is perfect. God has truly blessed you in your overall knowledge of getting things done. I pray the end comes soon and that Christ Jesus makes His glorious entry into this sin-filled world. With brotherly and sisterly love.—G. H., Kentucky

I would like to request a copy of your book on Judaism. Also, thank you for the teachings you sent me in the mail. I thank God for you. You are such a blessing to me and my husband. He thinks you favor Rick Flair; so when I play one of your teachings in the car, he will say, "Oh, that's Rick Flair." Of course, I remind him of your real name. Thought you might get a laugh out of that. Love, in Jesus.—M. W., North Carolina

Dear Fred: I purchased The Holy Bible In Its Original Order a few weeks ago. It is the best Bible. I was once a member of the 7th-Day Adventist Church. I left for many reasons. I wanted to find another church that honored the Sabbath, but I couldn't find one. My son and his family go to a Sunday-keeping church. I attended that church on Sunday, but always felt that Saturday was the proper day. I came across your Web site while visiting the Restored Church of God site. I was looking for more information on the Feast Days. I have never celebrated them and I wanted to know more about them. So, [using Google] I found the Christian Biblical Church of God. While looking through the site I also noticed Church at Home. What a blessing this has been for me! I want to spend all day learning! Thank you!—S. M., Michigan

Hello Mr. Coulter: I hope you and your family are well. Thank you so much for the beautiful Bible you sent—and the message you wrote in the front. I am very grateful and touched by your words…. Again, many thanks. Sincerely.—K. R., Nevada

I am requesting the Baptism Series and a copy of the baptism booklet, God, or No God?, TheAppointed Times of Jesus the Messiah, and God's Plan for Mankind. Thank you. I have recently read Occult Holidays or God's Holy DaysWhich? I have always felt that there was something wrong with the way Christians celebrate and worship. Thank you for bringing the truth to light—it's just what I needed.—A. N., Ohio

Greetings: My husband and I are requesting 50-100 Church at Home [promotional] cards. I feel this will help us spread the truth in our community…. I plan on passing out some of these cards during [social] interactions. May God continue to bless us and help us all to grow in grace and knowledge.—P. R., Ohio

I have been following your sermons and videos for some time. I do not attend any church and have been doing my Bible studies at home. I was born Catholic. I changed to Pentecostal, but was never at ease in those places. I am thankful for your Web site and Church at Home. I am now really happy I have found the truth. In Christ.—K. P., India

Thank you for the biblical teaching on "Sunset" and "Between the Two Evenings." Very insightful! Do you think Jesus was referring to Jewish "tradition" in Matthew 23? I saw where they dug up a "Moses Seat" in Jerusalem. Could Jesus have been referring to [the scribes and Pharisees] literally sitting in this physical seat, yet not obeying God's Torah while they taught their "traditions" which [centered on their] oral laws? Thank you so much for your devotion to the truth.—J. B., Tennessee

Brethren: I have Spanish friends from the Church who are interested in hearing and reading CBCG materials—including sermons in Spanish. However, they do not have a computer. Can you send, by mail, Spanish sermon tapes or CDs and articles? I greatly appreciate getting this information. I truly appreciate everything that this church of God puts out for us to learn and study of God's Holy Word. We are overjoyed with everything, and this is why I shared this with them. Thank you.—G. A., Florida

Dear Fred: The past year has been extremely long and full of ups and downs. Finally, I am starting to regain my strength and endurance. If it wasn't for watching Church at Home [videos] and [getting materials from] CBCG—along with 4 to 5 hours of daily in-depth Bible study—I don't think I would have made it. Thank you!!! [We] thank God daily for putting you in our lives. Since the February meeting … I have downloaded most of your PDFs and have been studying them…. We feel so blessed that we are finally beginning to understand the truth of who we are in Christ Jesus. What a change since coming out of Protestantism into the TRUTH of God's Word…. Thank you, Fred, for coming into our lives.—J. M., Arkansas
