BREATH-TAKING DEVELOPMENT PLUNGE WORK RAPIDLY AHEAD--INTO
GREATER POWER TOWARD WORLD-WIDE SCOPE!
GREETINGS! Dear Friends and Co-Workers:
This is the most solemn, serious, URGENT message I have ever
written you. Read it carefully. Read every word.
Amazing things are happening! Miracle after miracle has been
performed by the Almighty for His work, in breath-taking rapidity.
I have many really thrilling things to tell you.
And now comes the greatest development of all! It is SO
IMPORTANT it will be difficult for us to realize its great and
far-reaching significance. But NOTHING is impossible with our
But there is a REASON why God is now moving so SWIFTLY in
opening before us unbelievable opportunities, performing miracles
one on top of the other to speed the work ahead. And so first,
before I tell you the astonishing things that have happened,--the
tremendous developments now opening before us--let me try briefly
to MAKE CLEAR to you WHY--why God is now moving so swiftly, placing
such important facilities in our hands miraculously, one after
another with a speed that takes our breath!
TIME IS SHORT!
Repeatedly I've reminded you, TIME IS SHORT! It's later than we
think! This world is about DONE! Everybody's now talking about
World War III--how soon will it strike?--where will it start?--
who will be guilty of starting it?
Just this morning Mrs. Armstrong overheard three people talking
about it--just taking the next war for granted, as everyone now
does. One said he felt like he wanted to run and hide in a thick
woods someplace. Another said, "Well, this sure is a sorry world,
when people are so scared they feel like running in fear!" Yes,
this is a sorry world! It's man's world, operated in defiance of
God's laws, under sway of Satan the invisible god of this world!
It's allotted time has almost run out! The KINGDOM OF GOD is soon
now to appear, to save humanity from itself!
And TIME IS SHORT! There is SO little time left for the
tremendous world-wide commission to which we have been called! But
it's still DAY--we still are privileged to work, tho the night when
NO MAN CAN WORK for God draws swiftly down upon us!
THE TRUE GOSPEL
Over 1900 years ago Jesus Christ came into this world with a
Message direct from GOD. His Message was the GOOD NEWS (Gospel)
of His coming WORLD GOVERNMENT to abolish all present governments,
to rule the whole earth, and bring, at last, PEACE, PROSPERITY,
HAPPINESS, JOY, to sin-cursed suffering humanity.
He proclaimed Himself the future KING of that world-ruling
Kingdom of God. He revealed plainly WHY we have no peace today--no
real happiness or joy! The ways of God are the TRUE values. But
men are living wrong. Jesus taught men how to live--revealed and
taught the LAWS of His coming millennial Kingdom. He called on men
everywhere to REPENT of the ways they live now, to live by the laws
of God, to accept Him as Saviour, High Priest, and coming King,
that we might be converted--CHANGED by the power of God from
sinning mortal flesh into righteous immortal spirits.
Hundreds of years before the prophet Daniel was used of God to
reveal the future course of the governments of this world. After
Nebuchadnezzar's Chaldean Empire of his day, another kingdom was to
arise, stronger in military power, but inferior in character and
value. After this another third world-ruling kingdom--Alexander's
Greco-Macedonian empire. The was to come the strongest of all,
but the most degenerate--the ROMAN EMPIRE. After it lapsed into
apparent death, seven successive efforts at revival were to occur
in Europe--the last, by a union of ten dictators in modern 20th
This last and final outgrowth of the Gentile babylonish system
centering in Europe we see developing over there today! Yes, TIME
IS SHORT! Daniel's prophecy of the 2nd and 7th chapters shows that
in the days of these kings and kingdoms, now struggling toward
revival in Europe, the Second Coming of Christ is to occur--all
these and all other governments on earth are to be destroyed, and
thru Christ the God of Heaven shall set up a world government that
shall rule on earth FOREVER!
Revelation 17 shows this Fascist system now emerging once more
shall fight against Christ at His coming--but they shall be
destroyed, and the Fascist system abolished forever! Then men
shall LEARN the true ways of God! Then God's Law shall go forth
from Zion! Then men shall seek to live by God's rules, and for the
first time in all history a LASTING PEACE SHALL DAWN!
THIS is the TRUE GOSPEL--the Good News of the Kingdom of God, its
Message of the right way to live, it's Message of redemption thru
Christ, and God's gift of eternal life! Yes, THIS is the KINGDOM
OF GOD which Christ revealed over 1900 years ago--THIS is the true
NEW TESTAMENT GOSPEL--the true GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST!
WORLD DECEIVED BY ANOTHER GOSPEL
Jesus commissioned all HIS ministers to go into all the world and
preach THIS Gospel. (See Mark 16:15-16; Mat. 10:1,7-8; Luke 9:1-2;
and 10:1,9). THIS is the Gospel Peter and the apostles first
preached to the Jews. (Acts 2:30-36; 3:18-21; 4:19-20; Acts 8:12).
THIS is the same Gospel that was later preached to all the GENTILES
(Acts 10:34-38; 19:8; 20:25; 28:23, 30-31; Gal 1:8-9).
But do you know what was prophesied for the future? Not that the
True Gospel would flourish and become generally accepted by all the
popular churches--NO, NOT AT ALL!--but just the opposite--APOSTASY,
turning AWAY from the Truth, and to FABLES--the people demanding
their salaried preachers and pastors to preach smooth things and
deceits. (II Tim. 4:3-4; Isa. 30:8-10; Rev. 17:2 and 18:3 and
12:9). It was not the few, but the MANY that were to be deceived
(Mat. 24:5,11). Satan was to appear, not as a devil, but as an
angel of LIGHT, deceiving the world with a FALSE GOSPEL, organizing
religion into organized confusion, becoming thru deception the GOD
OF THIS WORLD, until the churches of the world would CALL him
"GOD," though he is an imposter and only the devil! His ministers
were to claim to be the ministers of Jesus Christ, appearing as
ministers of righteousness, preaching ANOTHER Jesus,--yet using the
NAME of Jesus Christ before a deceived world! (Study II Cor.
11:3-4, and 13:15). The true people of God are referred to as the
And today the ministers, and the popular organized churches and
denominations REJECT, and DENY the true Gospel of Jesus Christ--
which is the Message He brought from God--the Gospel He preached--
the GOOD NEWS of the coming KINGDOM OF GOD! They have, thru
deception and without knowing it in most instances, rejected the
true way of salvation and entrance into that Kingdom! The truth
about being "BORN AGAIN" has been perverted until it means today a
reformation of an already-immortal spirit, instead of a second and
spiritual BIRTH of a mortal flesh-and-blood soul. They have tried
to do away with God's LAW, the transgression of which is SIN. And
thus professing Christians are deceived into remaining SINNERS
while they are deluded into thinking they are saved!
EITHER THIS WORLD IS SO DECEIVED TODAY, OR PROPHECY HAS NOT BEEN
FULFILLED, and THE WORD OF GOD IS NOT TRUE! Today the world is
groping in spiritual DARKNESS as surely as when Jesus came bringing
the true LIGHT! Today millions are deceived by an imitation that
is called "the Old Fashioned Gospel,"--but it is not the same
Gospel Christ preached at all, and it was a NEW gospel some three
of four hundred years ago, tho it may be labeled "old-fashioned"
IT'S TIME WE GOT BACK TO THE FAITH ONCE DELIVERED! That true
Message is faithfully preserved IN THE BIBLE! And, looking down
into our day--the 20th Century A.D.--this day when the whole world
is deceived, religious and professing "Christianity," yet groping
in the darkness of paganism under the false cloak and label of
Christianity -- and of our day, Jesus said prophetically:
"This GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM shall be preached in all the world
for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the END come." (Mat.
Friends and Co-Workers, we have now reached that time! Jesus
Christ, the true Head of His Church, has CALLED US to that
tremendous mission! Fourteen years ago He started this work from
NOTHING, except the knowledge of the TRUTH which He had revealed,
and an abiding FAITH borne of a rich experience which He had
directed, and an absolute reliance upon Him, and a fearlessness in
boldly proclaiming HIS TRUTH as He revealed it, regardless of whom
it offended. From that humblest beginning, God has caused His work
to expand constantly in scope and grow continuously in power!
TODAY IT IS A NATION-WIDE INFLUENCE. And now the time has come
when it must GO INTO ALL THE WORLD, for a witness UNTO ALL NATIONS!
Today, TIME IS SHORT! Soon there will be an END of true Gospel
preaching. The past eight months GOD has revealed to us that HIS
TIME HAS COME -- the time is so short there must now BE NO MORE
DELAY! A year ago God revealed to me the necessity of establishing
a college in connection with this work. But by last fall all
circumstances seemed to make it necessary to postpone the opening
of the college for two more years. Then, suddenly, unexpectedly,
God literally THRUST UPON US the splendid buildings and
magnificently-landscaped grounds for the beginning of Ambassador
College in Pasadena, ALREADY BUILT AND PREPARED, so it could get
under way a year sooner -- THIS COMING SEPTEMBER! In every way,
it's coming into our hands was a MIRACLE!
Then came the conception of sending students abroad for their
fourth year of study in Switzerland--to be trained in speaking the
LANGUAGES of other nations WHERE those languages are spoken--to be
trained in the experience that comes only with travel -- to be
trained in understanding the customs and ways of foreign people in
other parts of the world, BEFORE they are sent out to preach the
true GOSPEL to those nations! And suddenly, out of a clear sky,
came the astounding offer of an ideal home for the European unit of
the college--a five-story villa in the finest location in all
Europe, almost new (built in 1934), an exact replica of the Petit
Trianon of Versailles palace! Yes, and at a fraction of its cost,
without a down payment, and on terms we can handle with a mere 8
percent increase in present income of this work! In late February,
as you know, Mrs. Armstrong and I went to Europe to inspect this
very unusual place. We found it finer than we expected, even
better adapted to the purpose of the college than we supposed.
Because of the drop in tithes and offerings from our co-workers
which seemed temporarily to set in at the time, we have had to
delay negotiations for this most splendid property. However, I
feel God opened this place to us--led us to it--that it is His will
that it be turned into the European unit of Ambassador College, and
the Continental headquarters for God's work. A tentative offer has
just been air-mailed to the owner in Lugano, Switzerland. I feel
it will be accepted. If so, title to this marvelous property will
come into our hands on the first monthly payment. There will be no
interest, no taxes to pay for three years--and we get possession in
time for our first class of seniors to occupy it!
RAPID DEVELOPMENTS OF PAST SIXTY DAYS
Now quickly let me tell you of the thrilling, rapid developments
of these past few weeks. May 1st, Walter E. Dillon assumed active
full-time duties as president of Ambassador College. He is in
Pasadena now, with his office set up in the smaller of the two
We are to have possession of the entire property July 1st. Mr.
Dillon expects soon to complete his work at Columbia University for
the degree of Doctor of Education. I have known him for more than
30 years and consider him potentially the ablest man that could be
obtained to head AMBASSADOR COLLEGE. He is a life-long educator--a
natural-born teacher and administrator, with a most unusual record
behind him. He is one of the finest men, morally, I ever knew--a
fine, clean, upright man of highest ideals who has started many
hundreds of young people out on their life-course imbued with the
higher ideals of fine character. He is a man who commands the
respect and co-operation of teachers and students alike--one who is
universally liked,--has that faculty of inspiring others to WANT to
do their best work. He believes heart and soul in our program, and
is devoting his talents and his life to its accomplishment.
The faculty of AMBASSADOR COLLEGE is already well along toward
completion. Mr. Dillon and I have been amazed at developments. We
are hardly being permitted to go out and select our own faculty--
GOD IS SELECTING IT AND IS SENDING ITS MEMBERS TO US!
Tentatively engaged already are the following:
Head of the department of Science, Dr. H. O. Taylor, who comes to
AMBASSADOR after 19 years as chairman of the Physics Department at
Wheaton College, Ill.--a thoroughly Fundamentalist college. He
holds a Doctor of Philosophy degree from Cornell, was on its
faculty some years. He comes with the impressive background of
several years each on the faculties of Harvard University,
Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Consulting Physicist at the
National Bureau of Standards, Washington, D.C. Dr. Taylor is
coming to establish at AMBASSADOR a course comprising a survey of
astronomy, geology, physics and chemistry, adapted for students
looking toward the ministry and evangelism, as well as teaching,
and business. Dr. Taylor is a fine Christian gentleman, and ardent
believer in the truth of our national identity as ISRAEL.
Head of the English department, and possibly dean of women: Dr.
Enid Smith, a Christian lady who holds a Doctor of Philosophy
degree from Columbia, has a world-wide experience, has taught in
India and Hawaii, has been head of the English departments in high
schools, and several colleges and universities, and has been a dean
of women. Her background and experience is impressive.
Languages and History, Genevieve Paine, who holds a Masters'
degree from Colorado, has had several years experience as a foreign
language teacher, is taking further study in the East at the
present time in preparation for her work at AMBASSADOR beginning
September 22nd. She, too, is a fine Christian and ardent believer
in the Israel truth.
It will be our policy to start with a faculty of EXPERIENCE, and
then develop a faculty as we go along from young men just out of
college, to be trained as the KIND of professors that meet the high
standards at AMBASSADOR.
Every effort is being made to secure adequate housing
accommodations for students. We are now negotiating for the large
and lovely estate adjoining the college campus. This estate
compromises about one and three-quarters acres of beautiful
grounds, and a fine 22-room house which will make a most splendid
men's dormitory. We have another very splendid property in mind
which we hope to be able to lease for the girl's dormitory. We are
in touch with the owners of the property adjoining the campus, who
desire to sell it and wish us to have it. Only complication is a
5-year lease to another party, but we are negotiating also with
this party and hope, with God's help, to work out an arrangement
whereby we may have possession of this large and splendid property
before college opens this fall.
AND NOW COMES GREATEST DEVELOPMENT OF ALL
On the heels of all these amazing occurrences, miracle after
miracle, comes to us now the probable offer to sell to us two great
super-powered radio stations, located just across the border in
Mexico. I must say first, that a prior option has been given to
another party, expiring June 15th. We will not know definitely
until that date, but the indication is that on that date we shall
have the opportunity to purchase and own the MOST POWERFUL RADIO
STATION IN THE WESTERN HEMISPHERE--perhaps in all the world!--in
addition to another very fine 50,000-watt station!
Now some three or four years ago we had an opportunity to buy a
Mexican radio station, but never one as good, as valuable, so
powerful as this. In fact, these stations will cost a lot more
money than the one then offered to us. Apparently God's time had
not then come. But somehow I have a conviction that it has come,
now, and that it is God's will that we now acquire this
tremendously powerful facilities for carrying the true GOSPEL to
If so, Friends and Co-Workers, GOD WILL HAVE TO PERFORM ANOTHER
MIRACLE, one that would appear, to our eyes, far greater than any
He has performed for us so far--but OUR GOD IS NOT LIMITED--
NOTHING IS TOO HARD OR DIFFICULT FOR OUR GOD, and if it is His
will, and His time has come, then nothing can prevent. If not,
then of course we don't want it.
This is a most solemn, serious matter. These radio stations can
be purchased only for CASH. They are now producing a very large
profit for their owners--running well into six figures a year.
They cannot, of course, be bought cheaply. There are, as I
understand, two owners. One must sell on advice of his physician
because of health--he must dispense with this responsibility and
activity or not live many months. The other is a wealthy Mexican
who has many other interests and finds his interest in the radio
station is embarrassing his other interests and his personal
political prestige, and he feels disposed to sell. If these super-
powered properties are to come into our hands, the action must be
quick and decisive, for time is at a premium. If we are unable to
take advantage of the opportunity within a very short time, it will
be offered to interests with ample capital to purchase, and who
know the profit-making possibilities of these stations.
Breath-taking though it is, it will take ONE MILLION DOLLARS CASH
to take full advantage of the present amazing opportunities. On
that amount, we could purchase both radio stations, developing one
to the full honest maximum of power for which it is both licensed
and equipped, ON A CLEAR CHANNEL (some of these Mexican stations
are not using all the power they are supposed to, in actual fact),
--we could pay off HALF the purchase-price on Ambassador College
property in Pasadena, pay a full HALF on the Switzerland property
and thus obtain a very large cut in the principal price, and retain
an ample cash surplus in the bank to fortify this work against the
occasional crisis we have had to weather thru ever since the work
The amount needed is so large that for MOST of you, I can only
ask you. JOIN ME IN BELIEVING PRAYER! Ask God to REVEAL His will,
and to ACT for us ACCORDING TO HIS WILL! If this is, as I frankly
feel, opened by the Eternal then He is able to lay this heavily on
the heart of some one or a few people of means who are able to
supply this great and immediate need. Yes, GOD IS ABLE!
Let me say that, if I could have my preference, I should prefer
to operate these Mexican stations, if we are permitted to acquire
them, on a sustaining basis, non-commercial--simply owned by the
RADIO CHURCH OF GOD, Inc., as NON-profit educational enterprises of
our non-profit corporation. I have ideas in mind which I feel
would attract to these stations a tremendous listening audience,
and I feel certain their entire operating cost could be met as the
expenses of our present work are met--thru the tithes and offerings
of God's people who wish to see His work carried on unshackled and
FREE to proclaim His Truth. However, there is a possibility of a
net profit as high as a quarter million a year from these
properties, and if those who might make their purchase possible for
us demand a return out of profits for what they thus make possible
with their money, then perhaps we would find it necessary to
organize a separate corporation for that purpose.
Let me make it plain and clear to our Co-Workers just here, too,
that this work of God, for the protection of all its Co-Workers, is
INCORPORATED under the laws of the state of California, as The
Radio Church of God, Inc.--a non-profit association and CHURCH, for
the spreading of the GOSPEL. No person is permitted by law to ever
make a penny of profit in any manner from this work. Very strict
records are kept in our accounting department, and our books are
audited regularly by a certified public accountant. This work is
financially responsible, and above reproach.
ONE WAY YOU MAY BE ABLE TO HELP GREATLY:
Now with the starting of AMBASSADOR COLLEGE, we shall need
endowments and special gifts for that purpose, as well as for the
other rapidly-growing phases of this work.
Beside outright GIFTS, and generous OFFERINGS, and tithes, there
is now another way open for many to help very materially in God's
work. Since the work is incorporated, it is now possible for
persons having life-savings of some sizeable sum to live off those
savings, or partly so, as the case may be, while at the same time
they put the money to work in GOD'S SERVICE. About two years ago
one of our co-workers offered to send in for the work such a sum of
money--I don't remember now the exact amount, perhaps a couple
thousand or five thousand dollars -- with the arrangement that we
in turn send them a monthly check of a certain small percent, for
them to live on, as long as they lived. At the time we were not
incorporated, and our attorney advised against accepting it. Now,
however, the work is in position to receive such sums, both for the
Gospel work, and for the College.
Also the work now is in position to receive deeds to property, or
to be bequeathed property of money in wills. Many would rather
have their money go into God's work in the event of their death, or
a portion of it.
Then, also, we need SCHOLARSHIP FUNDS, and LOAN FUNDS for the
college, to be used in assisting worthy and qualified students
unable fully to pay their own way. As the work develops and
expands, the NEED grows. Every Co-Worker has a SERIOUS
RESPONSIBILITY--and supplying YOUR PART of this great and growing
need is YOUR PART in this work. That's the part I cannot do.
Remember, NONE of it goes to me personally. And remember, too,
EVERY DOLLAR placed in this work carries the true GOSPEL out to TWO
THOUSAND PRECIOUS SOULS! Already we are reaching millions every
week with the TRUTH -- but now the work must expand till it's WORLD
FINALLY! AND MOST URGENT!
Finally, Brethren, Friends, Co-Workers, LISTEN! Two months ago
we found this work in a life-and-death crisis. Suddenly it had
gone thousands of dollars behind, because some of our Co-Workers
had grown lax and careless. I sent out a very special emergency
letter. The response was splendid, and in three weeks two thirds
of that indebtedness was paid. But then tithes and offerings began
to fall off again. The last BULLETIN helped a little, but we have
been just barely holding our own with week-to-week expenses.
And now, the past week, it has begun to drop off again. That
portion of the indebtedness into which the work was plunged two
months ago still hangs heavily over our heads--AND IT IS GETTING
SERIOUS AND DESPERATE!
It CAN'T BE PUT OFF LONGER! We have had to delay publishing The
PLAIN TRUTH that should have been out in March or April, and people
are writing in by the thousands asking for it! It's mostly written
--a dynamic article giving you the BIBLE TRUTH on our greatest
national evil -- DIVORCE AND RE-MARRIAGE; a thrilling article on
the PALESTINE QUESTION, for which I have gone to San Francisco, New
York, London, to interview personally the men in whose hands the
fate of Palestine rests; a most revealing article on European and
world conditions--as I found them, as they are, and in the light of
PROPHECY. Many other vital and interesting things--hundreds of
thousands of people HUNGRY for these truths, waiting impatiently
for that PLAIN TRUTH. My part is almost ready. Co-Workers, won't
you strain to EXTRA sacrifice to hurry along YOUR PART? We are
still way behind with one of the great super-powered radio
stations, and the broadcast may be shut off unless there is an
IMMEDIATE and a MOST GENEROUS RESPONSE.
I know that, while MOST of our Co-Workers are in poor economic
circumstances and can send only the "widow's MITES"--notice it was
"MITES," not just one "mite,"--and while it is these many small
amounts of a couple dollars, or a five or ten, that are the very
BACKBONE OF THIS WORK--(and every single dollar takes the TRUTH to
two thousand people, so don't think a single dollar is too little
to send in)--yet I know that out of all our Co-Worker family all
over the United States are actually SEVERAL who could, if they
would let God have His way in their hearts and lives and pocket-
books, send in generous offerings of more than a thousand dollars
each--some for SEVERAL thousand!
And yet, dear friends, the largest single contribution to this
work so far STILL remains, aside from the one Mrs. Armstrong and I
put in ourselves when we sold our home, an offering of $1,000. My
wife and I gave more than that when we sold our home--we gave our
ALL--and for the past year and a half we have been living part time
in two rented upstairs bedrooms in another family's home, and part
time in auto cabins, unable to have a real family life with our two
high school sons, and forced to eat out all the time at
restaurants. Now don't think for a moment I mention that to
grumble at the hardship, or take credit for the gift--but rather to
encourage you and as an example to you of how God works. We knew
it wasn't God's will for us to have our home broken up, and be
unable to live as a family in a home, and that in due time He would
give us another home. Well, now, I think before closing I'll
reveal to you one more of the miracles God has recently performed--
this time for us personally! Suddenly, unexpectedly, not of our
own seeking at all, a home came to us just the other day. It's not
pretentious, but modest and plain and neat---but it is a home of
refinement and character--just a CHARMING place, and ample in size
and of most substantial construction. It came to us with no down-
payment except just three monthly payments in advance, and on
monthly payments which just equal what we have had to spend in
restaurants for food--with NO INTEREST--and the title and deed to
the property have been signed over to us. We are to move in July
1st. You may know Mrs. Armstrong, the boys and I are happy over
it, not for the home alone, but for this one more evidence of how
God takes care of His own. We gave the home we had to Him. Now
He has given us the nicest home we ever had, and without any
capital outlay whatever! I have found by experience that one
never LOSES by being generous with GOD! "GIVE, and it shall be
GIVEN UNTO YOU," said Jesus. Yes, and God loves a CHEERFUL giver
--and a GENEROUS giver. It's more blessed to GIVE than to receive.
Now dear Co-Workers, THE FATE OF GOD'S WORK IS IN YOUR HANDS! We
must have an IMMEDIATE response from thousands of you, and of the
most generous amounts you can send. I don't ask any to OVER-give,
and God doesn't expect it--but most of you UNDER-give, and God's
work suffers. Give liberally, generously--AND GREAT SHALL BE YOUR
REWARD! God never lets His own go unrewarded! He PROSPERS His
servants that serve Him with their whole heart! Use the enclosed
reply-envelope,--SEND THE LARGEST POSSIBLE CHECK, MONEY ORDER OR
BILL YOU CAN SEND, IMMEDIATELY FOR THE WORK--AND KEEP SENDING AS
OFTEN AS IS POSSIBLE.
Then, if you can arrange some larger gift, or endowment, or fund
for the college, be sure to write me IMMEDIATELY. I have letters
from many students wanting to attend AMBASSADOR COLLEGE who lack
funds, and want to earn their way, but need help. Don't let some
fine deserving young man or woman be deprived of this wonderful
education because you might be negligent.
And, in addition, if you are in position to place at our disposal
some really large sum toward the purchase of these great radio
stations, and some of this vitally-needed property--whether a half
million dollars, a hundred thousand, a few thousand, or only fifty
or a hundred, in addition to your liberal and generous offerings
for the regular work, then write me at once, and I will correspond
privately giving all details, or even, if necessary, make it
possible for a personal interview. And if you are NOT in position
to make such a large contribution, then, PLEASE, go to some private
place alone with God, and go to your knees, and PRAY EARNESTLY, AND
IN FAITH, agreeing with me that God will supply every need, and
continue to guide and direct His Work! I need your prayers as much
as your money.
PLEASE RUSH THIS! We are not yet out of the life-and-death
crisis--the need is still MOST URGENT! We MUST NOT be thrown off
the air--The PLAIN TRUTH must be put on the presses without further
Send it AIR-MAIL! and God bless you!
Sincerely, in Jesus' name,
HERBERT W. ARMSTRONG
