Dear Tomorrow’s World Subscriber,
A warm welcome to thousands of new subscribers to Tomorrow’s World since my last personal letter to all of you! Our mailing list is heading towards half a million copies per issue, and we are grateful for the increased power and impact of this Work of faith. Truly, our impact is growing in many other nations around the world now more than ever before! More about that later. And keep reading, for I will have a special free gift to tell you about later in this letter!
But now, we all need to realize how quickly world conditions are changing. Most of you are aware of the tremendous financial upheaval which has been taking place in the United States Congress. At the very last minute, the U.S. Congress was able to pass some continuing resolutions to somehow keep the government going for now—in spite of the fact that America is still running up its debt at an unsustainable level. Many economists around the world realize this, and governments around the world are beginning to consider whether to slow down or completely stop purchasing U.S. Treasury Bonds. All this is going to have a tremendous impact on our economy within the next several months. God Almighty truly is humbling our peoples as He prophesied that He would do in Leviticus 26:19.
As world news worsens, people by the many thousands are turning to Tomorrow’s World to genuinely understand the real meaning behind these fast moving events. For these events are bringing us swiftly to the end of this present society and the dawn of Tomorrow’s World—a time of glorious peace, happiness and abundance! Frankly, no other publication gives you the real meaning of these mounting and world shaking events as we do. More and more prophetic events are happening as the Middle East comes apart, as the Roman Catholic Church is thrilled by this new and more charismatic pope. Millions will soon be lured back to the “mother church” within the next several years. Whether you now believe it or not, most of you will live to see this!
Right now, in the U.S., television and newspaper commentators and politicians are arguing back and forth—accusing each other of “who’s to blame” in bringing about the financial crises we seem to be having on a regular basis. The latest “settlement” is simply “kicking the can down the road.” As the news pundits acknowledge, it is not really solving anything—it is simply delaying the hard work of somehow bringing our spiraling national debt under control, and of causing Congressional leaders to work together in a way they are simply not doing at this time. Yet these politicians—and other leaders around the world—do not remotely know the real cause of all the troubles that beset our societies. The Tomorrow’s World magazine brings you the real causes of all the bad news that is beginning to occur. And we show you the glorious solution which will come as God intervenes in human affairs.
But why do we know?
Why don’t the world’s politicians, educators and scientists understand the reason behind these events? Let me tell you. Modern mankind—basically cut off from God and the understanding of His Word—is simply groping about for various human-devised solutions and ways of governing themselves. They are also groping about trying to understand the meaning behind these terrible events which are becoming worse and worse with each decade. Yet they leave out the one source of genuine understanding. Strangely, at least to them, it is the world’s bestselling book of all time—the Holy Bible. It is the least read—and certainly the least understood book for most people. Why? Why don’t the world’s writers, philosophers and even ministers grasp the clear message of the Bible? There is one “key” to which God has seemingly blinded their minds—though it is made very clear and plain throughout the Bible itself. For God’s Word clearly says: “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; a good understanding have all those who do His commandments” (Psalm 111:10).
Though we are human, and certainly have normal human foibles and mistakes, we in this Work of the living God base our entire way of life upon keeping the Ten Commandments, and actually doing what Jesus Christ clearly commanded over and over. A young man came to Jesus asking: “Good Teacher, what good thing shall I do that I may have eternal life?” (Matthew 19:16). What was Jesus’ answer? Did He say, “Just give your heart to Me? Just believe on My name?”
No! Jesus clearly told the young man the inspired answer from the very Son of God: “If you want to enter into life, keep the commandments” (v. 17). Then Jesus began to name some of the Ten Commandments to make it totally clearly what He was talking about!
In His wonderful foundational explanation of true Christianity, which we call the “Sermon on the Mount,” Jesus warned: “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’” (Matthew 7:21-23). Notice that though these would-be ministers claimed to speak in Christ’s name and cast out the demons of despair or ignorance and do many wonders in Christ’s name, He condemned them because, as He said to them, “You… practice lawlessness.”
Clearly, if you at all understand the Bible the way it interprets itself, He was letting them know that those who disobey God’s great spiritual laws—the Ten Commandments—are cut off from the true God and certainly from understanding His Word and from understanding the inspired prophecies which take up about one-fourth of the entire Bible! That, my friends, is why most “mainstream” ministers very rarely talk about prophecies in any specific way. Preachers may indicate that “Christ is coming back someday, somehow, somewhere.” But, in fact, they don’t know and they are certainly not sure. God has not opened their minds to understand His full Truth because they will not obey His commandments. It is just that clear!
The eternal God makes this basic anti-God attitude very clear when He states in Romans 8:7: “Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be.”
As you Tomorrow’s World readers no doubt understand, the vast majority of human beings—including most ministers—simply do not want to believe in a kind of God who tells them what to do. Our entire society is now beginning to say to God, in effect, “Keep Your nose out of my sex life! Keep Your nose out of my business! Don’t interfere with what we are doing and the ways we are following which have evolved through our own human reasoning and human imagination!”
So the Eternal God of creation replies, in effect, “Okay, I will keep out of your affairs and I will leave you to your own devices—cut off from Me until such time as I intervene and literally shake the nations by sending My Son Jesus Christ as King of kings to rule all nations with a rod of iron!” For Christ is not coming to rule with an ostrich feather! He is coming to rule with a rod of iron! For the people who want to argue and reason around everything God says will have to be shaken and dealt with powerfully before they will be humble enough to be willing to wake up and do what God actually says!
That is the world in which we live—including the world of religion. For all of the empty platitudes, the rituals, the songs, the music and the “happy faces” that people often put on in their religious services will have no effect in pleasing the Creator unless they will do what He says! Jesus Christ is God. Jesus said, “I and My Father are one” (John 10:30). And this same Jesus Christ also said, “But why do you call Me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do the things which I say?” (Luke 6:46).
However, my friends, God is obviously calling thousands of you to genuinely understand the purpose of life and the need to “seek first” the Kingdom of God. For the true God is going to send His Son Jesus Christ back to this earth as King of kings (Revelation 11:15). And we need to pray for this and prepare for Christ’s coming, not only for ourselves but to try to help others in every way we can to “wake up” and begin to honestly seek God and be willing to obey His will before the darkness falls. For, as all of you regular readers know, Jesus said that this coming Great Tribulation—which definitely will happen soon—will be a “tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the creation which God created until this time, nor ever shall be” (Mark 13:19). We cannot fully imagine the horrors that will fall upon our people as we continue to defy God and “despise” His commandments, His statutes, and His judgments. Even now, He is continuing to “break the pride” of America’s power and bring down the British-descended and American peoples in a very significant way.
Our Father in heaven wants all of us, who understand, to reach out and “warn” our fellow human beings of this coming time of trouble and be God’s “watchman” to warn others—before it is too late. God tells us: “If the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, and the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand” (Ezekiel 33:6). God has opened the minds of many thousands of you to be on the “team” of the watchman and help give this warning. You understand. You are increasingly growing in understanding as you watch the Tomorrow’s World program and read the Tomorrow’s World magazine and the powerful informative booklets we send out all over the world by the hundreds of thousands. May God help all of you begin to act. May He help you to become fully involved in serving your fellow man and giving the warning from God before it is too late.
In this Work of faith we certainly are doing all that we can to get Christ’s message to the world as a whole—and especially our own peoples. We just printed 446,000 copies of the November-December issue of the Tomorrow’s World magazine, which is currently the largest-circulation magazine of its kind, with subscribers in 175 nations around the world as of this latest issue. We are also so very thankful for the growth that God continues to give us in Internet, Social Media and television. In addition to the other telecast-related items mentioned in this letter, we are happy to report that inquiries continue to come in from our worldwide Russian-network and we are currently adding additional Russian information to our dedicated Russian Web sites to better serve those people. Additionally, our new Spanish-language satellite and cable network expansion with accompanying custom Spanish-language Web sites launched successfully in October with the first telecast—“¿Quién controla el tiempo?”—being aired to potentially hundreds of millions of Spanish-language viewers! Our Roku channel continues to grow. And, our Tomorrow’s World YouTube channel continues to see massive growth, with multiple videos now receiving well over 100,000 or 200,000 views!
Although the present TomorrowsWorld.org Web site continues to produce a double-digit increase in new visitors over 2012, we are very excited that efforts are nearing completion on a powerful new TomorrowsWorld.org Web site which will not only offer the very latest in technical functionality, but which we also believe you will find to be very modern, easy to navigate and elegant. This new Web site will initially deploy in the English-language, but will soon thereafter deploy in Spanish, French and then German. Of course, as some of you know, we also maintain dozens of smaller Web sites, including in many other languages such as Hebrew, Russian, Swahili, Hindi and more. We are very thankful to God for all of these wonderful new Internet and television developments, as well as for the continued massive Social Media growth, which I have detailed before (for example, our TW Facebook page now has well over 60,000 fans!). Thank you for your continued prayers as with God’s blessing we continue to preach the message of the coming Kingdom of God powerfully to all the world!
As you can see from the above, all of your prayers, tithes and offerings are certainly having a wonderful effect as this Work of God keeps growing in power and effectiveness. Again, we deeply appreciate the help many of you have already been giving. Multiple thousands of you are already co-workers—giving regularly and even generously to help this Work grow and help prepare the way for Christ’s Second Coming. Some have generously put charitable bequests in their wills for God’s Work, which we greatly appreciate. God will bless you richly as you continue. And all of you who support this Work in any way—including your fervent prayers—will be blessed by God as you “seek first” His Kingdom and help prepare the way for the return of the King of kings. Remember, to the extent that we give to God we ourselves are blessed. As the Apostle Paul was inspired to write, “But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver” (2 Corinthians 9:6-7).
In addition to “giving” our lives, our time and energy in doing this Work, we also want God’s blessings as we try to be “givers” instead of “getters.” So—as I indicated at the beginning of this letter—I have a special offer for you at this time. A few weeks ago, we presented my second online Internet telecast, entitled: “Prophecy and the Decline of the Western Nations.” In this exciting presentation, I went far beyond many of the prophecies we are able to give you on television and in the Tomorrow’s World magazine. You will be excited and benefited by being able to watch carefully the DVD of this presentation which we will send you, absolutely free. You will be able to watch it and check up in your Bible carefully to prove to yourself many of the key items which are given in this presentation and are available nowhere else. Please return the response card enclosed with this letter, and we will send you, absolutely free and with no obligation, your own copy of this exciting and informative DVD.
Again, as Almighty God begins to intervene and shake the nations through the coming financial crises, upset weather, earthquakes and disease epidemics, may God help all of us cry out to our Creator for the faith and the courage to get involved in His Work now—before it is too late. May God help all of us give our lives to Him and surrender to let Jesus Christ live within us through the power of the Holy Spirit and truly “walk with God” as we approach the end of this present society. So, my friends, do not be afraid to “get involved” with your Creator and with His Work. Do your part in “seeking first” God’s coming Kingdom in every way and giving your lives to the One who has given you your life in the first place!
With Christian love,
Roderick C. Meredith
