Feast Of Tabernacles Messages

Below is a Special Message for all of God's people (about 5 minutes):

This page is for all those who were ever a part of, or associated with the Worldwide Church of God, and for all who are currently associated with any of the hundreds of offshoots or splinters of that church.

From the very beginning of this website ten years ago (as is mentioned on the home page) the emphasis has been to REMEMBER what we (God's people or church) were taught from the beginning. Everything that is written or spoken on this website points back to what God's people were given here in the end time under the leadership and direction of God's only chosen apostle for the end time, Mr. Herbert W Armstrong.

Below is a sermon which covers the importance that God puts on us remembering what we were taught from the beginning. It is entitled:  "A Call To REMEMBRANCE".  I hope it will be helpful for those still looking for the TRUTH of God.

The Sermon title on the below player is: "A Call To REMEMBRANCE" (1 hour, 33 minutes)


Mal 3:16  ThenH227 they that fearedH3373 the LORDH3068 spakeH1696 often oneH376 toH854 another:H7453 and the LORDH3068 hearkened,H7181 and heardH8085 it, and a bookH5612 of remembranceH2146 was writtenH3789 beforeH6440 him for them that fearedH3372 the LORD,H3068 and that thoughtH2803 upon his name.H8034

Mal 3:17  And they shall beH1961 mine, saithH559 the LORDH3068 of hosts,H6635 in that dayH3117 whenH834 IH589 make upH6213 my jewels;H5459 and I will spareH2550 H5921 them, asH834 a manH376 sparethH2550 H5921 his own sonH1121 that servethH5647 him.

Mal 3:18  Then shall ye return,H7725 and discernH7200 betweenH996 the righteousH6662 and the wicked,H7563 betweenH996 him that servethH5647 GodH430 and himH834 that servethH5647 him not.H3808

Church of God Website:

This website serves, and has from its beginning, as a testimony and a written memorial, as well as documented evidence of the publishing and preaching of the True Gospel of Jesus Christ to all nations of the earth by His end-time apostle, Mr. Herbert W Armstrong. This website also serves as a witness and written record that the writings and teachings contained herein are a memorial (call to remembrance) of the teachings of God’s end-time apostle, as given to Him by Jesus Christ, and are hereby certified as valid and true in accordance with the Word of God, The Holy Bible.  

It is in this context that the Church of God website serves as a warning to all of God’s people, that judgment on the “House of God” is almost over and that time is running out for God’s people to return (repent) to that foundation of truth (the “all things” of Matt. 17:11) which was revealed and restored by Jesus Christ through His end-time chosen servant, and to again live by that truth. It all begins with a call to remembrance, to remember what we were taught from the beginning. (Mal. 3:16-1)

For years we have referred back to Mal. 3:16, as it refers to those of us in the Body of Christ as “speaking often one to another”.

However, what about the rest of that verse, and the two verses that follow it?

In verse 16 it says (about this group) that a “book of remembrance” was written before Him (Christ). It does NOT say that He wrote (or is writing) it, it simply does not say who wrote it. But the implication is that it is done by someone who “fears the Eternal” and it is written BEFORE Him, in other words in His sight or presence. This clearly shows it has to be where Christ is or where He is working. What is the book about? He tells us! … It’s about REMEMBRANCE!

And WHO is this book for? Is it for God? NO! It is FOR THEM who fear the Eternal and think (meditate) on His name! So here is something being written FOR this group of people who speak often one to another. Has something been written or recorded or documented for us here at the end, and does it have to do with remembering?

And notice WHEN this happens! It happens just before verse 17, when this very group is taken or “spared” from something (great tribulation). There are at least two things to consider here. One, this group is spared or protected from something, and two, this book of remembrance (for them) is written apparently just before they are spared or protected.

With the overwhelming evidence presented on this Church of God website, and the documentation and message contained therein, THIS WEBSITE itself may very well be that book (writing) of REMEMBRANCE!  If so, we have all the more proof and promise from Christ specifically “who” exactly will be spared from the great tribulation. In other words, those “accounted worthy to escape”. This stands as a stark warning for the vast majority of God’s people, and for a few it’s great encouragement!
