     "There are many precious truths contained in the Word of God, but it is 'PRESENT TRUTH' that the flock needs now." Early Writings, p 63.

     The emotion of love is the most noble of all our emotions!  And why is this?
     “He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.” 1 John 4:8.

     So God is love, and there is nothing more noble than being like our Creator!  But do we really understanding what this passage actually means – “God is love”?  As God is eternal (Deuteronomy 33:27), unchanging (James 1:17), infinite (Psalms 147:5; Job 11:7), pure (Proverbs 30:5), holy (Leviticus 11:44-45; Psalms 99:9), and true (John 3:33; 2 Corinthians 1:18; Revelation 15:3), then since God is love, this means that love is eternal, unchanging, infinite, pure, holy and true!
     Yet it is even more than this:
     “The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.” Jeremiah 31:3.

     So not only is God love, but by God manifesting everlasting love to each of fallen mankind, He is actually manifesting Himself to us!  And it is through His everlasting love that God is drawing us to Him.  But just how does God’s love draw us?
     “And I (Jesus Christ), if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.” John 12:32.

     This then means that Jesus Christ was and is the ultimate expression and manifestation of God and His love to you and me!  Jesus is truly “God with Us” (Matthew 1:23).  And it is through Jesus Christ that God is drawing all fallen and sinful human beings away from Lucifer and back to Him.
     “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.  For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.” John 3:16-17.

     So as God is eternal, unchanging, infinite, pure, holy and true, then God’s love for you dear one is all these things!  God’s love for you is everlasting, and thus it will never end!  God’s love for you is unchanging, and thus it is not here today and then gone tomorrow!  God’s love for you is infinite, and thus it is not limited!  God’s love for you is pure and holy, and thus it is not impure and corrupt!  And God’s love for you dear one is true, and thus it is not phony or false.  And what is even more comforting is the fact that God’s love for you was expressed and manifested before you even loved Him!
     “For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.  For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.  But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:6-8.

     Since God first loved you before you loved Him plainly reveals that God’s love for you is unconditional, meaning it is not based upon the conditions that you must love Him back.  And neither is God trying to trick you, or just playing with your emotions.  But since He expressed and manifested His love for you while you did not love Him proves that His love for you is the real deal!
     “Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God”. 1 John 3:1.

     As all this is true and factual, then with such love as this being freely expressed for you dear one, there is no one, not even the devil himself, that can prevent God or His love from reaching you as His child!
     “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?...Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.  For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8 35, 37-39.

     I hope you can now see why love is the most noble of all emotions, because it is God being expressed and manifested!  But while this emotion of love is the most noble of all emotions, yet it is also one of the most abused of all emotions.

     God is absolutely pure and holy and unfallen in nature, and when Adam and Eve were first created, they were just like God in nature.  But when they both chose to follow Satan and committed sin, they lost their pure and holy unfallen nature, and became impure, evil and fallen in nature.  And ever since that time, all of their offspring, which means all of mankind, are also of an impure, evil and fallen nature.
     “And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” Genesis 6:5.

     “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?”  Jeremiah 17:9.

     Since human beings are not like God in nature, then the love they can express and manifest will naturally be unlike God.  This means that there is a true form of love that shows itself to be of God, while there is a false and a counterfeit form of love that shows itself to be unlike God.
     The true form of Godly love is clearly seen being expressed and manifested in self-denial and self-sacrifice for the benefit of others!
     “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” John 15:13.

     So the true form of love is shown in self-denial and self-sacrifice that works for the good of others.  While the false form of love would be just the opposite of God, and thus would be clearly seen being expressed and manifested in self-pleasing and selfishness that works for the detriment of others.  And who is the author of all selfishness?  It is Lucifer or Satan.  Thus we see that the true form of love is of God, while the false form of love is of Lucifer.
     Now when the emotional form of Godly love is indulged in, it makes our life, as well as the life of others, a great blessing, because it makes us more like God, and thus a heavenly, spiritual and holy feeling is realized.  But when the emotional form of satanic love is indulged in, it makes our life, as well as the life of others, most miserable, because it makes us more unlike God, and thus an earthly, carnal, fleshly and evil feeling is realized.
     As this is true, then depending upon which form of this emotion of love we express and manifest will clearly determine whether we are showing ourselves to be like God, or are showing ourselves to be like Lucifer.  And an even more solemn realization is the fact that depending on which form of this emotion of love we express and manifest will clearly determine whether we are allowing God to live in us, or are allowing Satan to live in us!
     So then let us spend some time exploring into these vastly different types of the emotion of love so that we can clearly see if we are expressing and manifesting the Godly form of self-sacrificing love, or the Satanic form of selfish love, to our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus.

The Emotion of Love Dealing With Fellow Brothers and Sisters in Christ

     Neighbors, friends and strangers are not related to you as members of your family, and so there is no strong bond of family union attaching you with them and them with you.  But this is not the same with fellow brothers and sisters in Christ.  Even though there is no blood relationship between them, yet through their common connection with Jesus Christ there is in a way a strong and lasting bond of family union attaching them with one another.
     “For we are members of his [Jesus Christ’s] body, of his flesh, and of his bones....For we are members one of another.” Ephesians 5:30, 4:25.

     “So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.” Romans 12:5.

     “For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.  For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.  For the body is not one member, but many....But now are they many members, yet but one body....Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.” 1 Corinthians 12:12-14, 20, 27.

     Since each one of us are part of the body of Christ, and each of us together make up His body, then we are closely inter-related with each other in Jesus Christ.  This means that we are all connected together as members of the same family, because now in Christ we share a strong bond that attaches us one with another.
     This strong family bond and union between all those who have accepted Jesus Christ and are in Him is likened in the Scriptures in two different ways.  The first is likened to the strong bond of attachment in one flesh between a husband and a wife.

     “For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.  Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.  Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish....For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.  This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.” Ephesians 5:23-27, 31-32.
     So we see in these verses that Jesus Christ is the husband of His wife, and His wife represents His church which is composed of all who have joined themselves to Him.  As such, then all church members are closely connected and related with one another in this body of Christ, just as a wife is closely connected and related as one flesh with her husband.  Thus we are all family members of one body in Christ, and therefore are all equal with each other irregardless of race, nationality, color, cast, age or even gender.
     “For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.  There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.” Galatians 3:27-28.

     Now the second way in which the Scriptures likens this strong family bond of union between all those who have accepted Jesus Christ and are in Him, is in the family relationship dealing with children.
     “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16.

     “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.” Ephesians 1:3-6.

     “And [I] will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.” 2 Corinthians 6:18.
     “For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.” Galatians 3:26.

     So by accepting Jesus Christ as our Saviour by faith, God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ then becomes our Father, and we become His children.  As this is true, then since we now have the same Father as Jesus does, then Jesus becomes our Elder Brother and we all become His brothers and sisters.  This then further means that since we are all the children of God, and are all the siblings of our Elder Brother Jesus, then we are all closely connected, inter-related and attached to one another as brothers and sisters in Christ!

     This close brother and sister relationship between all Christians in Christ Jesus because God is our mutual Father, is clearly shown in God’s holy word of truth.
     “For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister”. Matthew 12:50.

     “Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace”. 2 Thessalonians 2:16.

     “Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timotheus our brother, To the saints and faithful brethren in Christ which are at Colosse: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.” Colossians 1:1-2.

     “John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne;...I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ”. Revelation 1:4, 9.
     “I commend unto you Phebe our sister, which is a servant of the church which is at Cenchrea: That ye receive her in the Lord, as becometh saints, and that ye assist her in whatsoever business she hath need of you: for she hath been a succourer of many, and of myself also.” Romans 16:1-2.

     So through Jesus Christ we are all inter-related to each other as brothers and sisters, because we are all the children of the Most High and members of His royal family, and thus fellow heirs of glory and everlasting life.
     “I [God] have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.” Psalms 82:6.

     “[We are all] fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his [God’s] promise in Christ by the gospel...[and in] the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ: To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God, According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord”. Ephesians 3:6, 9-11.

     So through Jesus Christ we are all members of the same family of the Most High, and thus closely inter-related and attached to each other as real brothers and sisters.  But just how soon does this close family relationship begin with us becoming brothers and sisters to one another in Christ Jesus?
     “And there was a certain disciple at Damascus, named Ananias; and to him said the Lord in a vision, Ananias.  And he said, Behold, I am here, Lord.  And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the street which is called Straight, and inquire in the house of Judas for one called Saul, of Tarsus: for, behold, he prayeth,  And hath seen in a vision a man named Ananias coming in, and putting his hand on him, that he might receive his sight.  Then Ananias answered, Lord, I have heard by many of this man, how much evil he hath done to thy saints at Jerusalem: And here he hath authority from the chief priests to bind all that call on thy name.  But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel: For I will show him how great things he must suffer for my name's sake.  And Ananias went his way, and entered into the house; and putting his hands on him said, Brother Saul, the Lord, even Jesus, that appeared unto thee in the way as thou camest, hath sent me, that thou mightest receive thy sight, and be filled with the Holy Ghost.  And immediately there fell from his eyes as it had been scales: and he received sight forthwith, and arose, and was baptized.  And when he had received meat, he was strengthened.  Then was Saul certain days with the disciples which were at Damascus.  And straightway he preached Christ in the synagogues, that he is the Son of God.” Acts 9:10-20.

     These verses reveal that as soon as Saul accepted Jesus Christ as His Lord and Saviour, he immediately became a child of God, a brother to Christ, and thus a brother to all other Christians.  And you will also notice that Saul became a true brother before he had boldly preached Christ to others!  This clearly shows us that it is through our individual connection with Jesus Christ as our Saviour and Elder Brother, that we immediately become a brother or sister to all others who have accepted Christ by faith, and it is not by our witnessing of Christ to others that makes us brothers and sisters.  Direct connection with Christ is the key to this family relationship, as well as our salvation, and not by our words alone!  So as this is true, then through Christ we are all related in a very close fellowship with one another, being united and attached together in one single huge family with God as our Father and Christ as our Elder Brother.  But this close attachment to God our Father and fellowship with one another only remains legitimate as long as we remain in Christ Jesus.
     “That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.  And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.  This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.  If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.” 1 John 1:3-7.

     Now since all who have accepted Jesus as their Saviour and are in Christ are our real brothers and sisters because we all have the same heavenly Father, then this fact of truth plainly reveals that there is to exist a greater bond of loving union with those of our faith than with the general group of those making up our neighbors, friends and strangers.  As this is true, then there is a great need for all fellow brothers and sisters of the faith to clearly recognize this close family attachment existing between them in Christ, and to then learn to live as true family members inter-related with one another.
     Our Elder Brother Jesus Christ clearly recognized this great need among His followers and siblings to truly live as real brothers and sisters to each other, and thus He then commanded each of us to show unselfish love to one another.
     “A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.  By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.” John 13:34-35.

     “As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.  If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love....This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.  Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends....These things I command you, that ye love one another.” John 15:9-10, 12-13, 17.

     So our Elder Brother Jesus Christ, who is also our King and Lord, has commanded all of His followers and fellow siblings to love each other as He has loved us!  This means that we are not to love one another as little as we may feel like, but are to love one another in the same full and complete unselfish way as Christ loves us!  And may God fully forgive us all for failing to truly love one another as He has loved us!
     Now since we all together make up the body of Christ, then if we indeed show true unselfish Christ-like love for each other member of Christ’s body, then by doing so we are actually showing our love for Christ.  And in addition to this, we are also showing our love for God as our mutual Father who gives us the ability to “live, and move, and have our being” and thus to show love in the first place (Acts 17:28)!
     “And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.” Matthew 25:40.

     But if we do not show true Christ-like love for each of our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ and members of His body, then we are actually not showing our love for Christ, and in addition are not showing our love for God as our mutual Father!
     “Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.” Matthew 25:45.

     So Jesus commands us to love our fellow brothers and sisters in the faith, and in doing so, we are loving the body of Christ, and thus loving Christ Himself.  And if we refuse to love one or more of our fellow brothers and sisters in the faith as Christ loves us, then by not loving one another we are directly breaking the explicit command of Jesus, and are also revealing that we really do not love our Lord!  And if we do not love our Lord by not loving one or more of our fellow brothers and sisters, then we are actually showing that we hate them!  And if we choose not to repent of this hatred, but instead continue on in this unloving pathway, then what will our growing and festering hatred for our Lord and one another lead us to do?
     “And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.  And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.  And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.  But he that shall endure unto the end [in keeping God and Christ’s commandments in loving Them and each other], the same shall be saved.” Matthew 24:10-13.

     So dear ones, what will your lack of expressing and manifesting true unselfish Christ-like love for all of your fellow brothers and sisters in the faith lead you to do?  Your lack of love will lead you to express and manifest hatred towards one or more of your brothers and sisters, and then you will betray them!  And in betraying one or more of your own brothers and sisters, you are also betraying your Elder brother Jesus Christ whose flesh and body you all are a part of, as well as God your Father whose children you all are!  And what is another name for one who betrays his own family members?
     “And Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve, went unto the chief priests, to betray him [Jesus] unto them.  And when they heard it, they were glad, and promised to give him money.  And he sought how he might conveniently betray him....and Judas Iscariot, which also was the traitor.” Mark 14:10-11, Luke 6:16.

     Now to wilfully betray and turn traitor against your own family members, or even the nation you are a part of, would make you into one of the greatest enemies of your family or nation.  So then if you betray and turn traitor against your fellow Christians in the same faith, you would become one of the greatest enemies of your own brothers and sisters in Christ, as well as your own Lord God Jesus Christ, and your own Father - the Almighty God!  This great sin would also make you in direct sympathy and league with Lucifer, who was the first great betrayer and traitor of his heavenly family!  And with you then being in union and of one mind with that apostate master and architect of the greatest rebellion against God and Christ and the angelic family that this universe has ever seen, then there will be no limit as to how deep into apostasy you will go!  You will even find yourself being willing to work in unity with those whom you know are servants of Lucifer in order to more fully manifest your hatred of your one time fellow brothers and sisters, and thus the holy and infinite Godhead as well, and all in your desperate efforts to exalt yourself as supreme over them!  And thus by doing so, your destiny will be fixed for time and for eternity in the lake of fire!
     “For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.  For the earth which drinketh in the rain that cometh oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receiveth blessing from God: But that which beareth thorns and briers is rejected, and is nigh unto cursing; whose end is to be burned.” Hebrews 6:4-8.

     “For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.  He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?  For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord.  And again, The Lord shall judge his people.  It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.” Hebrews 10:26-31.

     So there will be nothing you can do to avoid being eternally destroyed if you determine to wilfully betray and turn traitor against one or more of your fellow brothers and sisters in the faith and remain unrepentant, no matter how many clever lies or carefully hidden agreements you might make with Lucifer himself or with any other fallen agents of his!
     “Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves: Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD...Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place.  And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it.  From the time that it goeth forth it shall take you: for morning by morning shall it pass over, by day and by night: and it shall be a vexation only to understand the report.  For the bed is shorter than that a man can stretch himself on it: and the covering narrower than that he can wrap himself in it [or in other words, there is nowhere to hide].  For the LORD shall rise up as in mount Perazim, he shall be wroth as in the valley of Gibeon, that he may do his work, his strange work; and bring to pass his act, his strange act [of a God of love actually destroying the majority of His own creation that turned traitor against Him and His Son].” Isaiah 28:15-21.

     “...the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming...because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.  And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” 2 Thessalonians 2:8, 10-12.

     Oh dear ones, to think that all this sad traitorous and destructive pathway ending in your everlasting death began because you willfully chose not to express and manifest true unselfish Christ-like love for all of your fellow brothers and sisters in Christ!  Oh, I pray that this will not become the destiny of any one of you!

     Now I hope you can also plainly see that if you choose to obey your Lord Jesus Christ’s command to love all of your fellow brothers and sisters in the faith as He loves you, then by continuing to do so you are indeed showing your love for Jesus and your Father, and you will indeed be saved!
     “Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand [who had done His will], Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world”. Matthew 25:34.  

     But if you should instead choose to disobey your Lord’s command by not loving one or more of your fellow brothers and sisters in the faith as Christ loves you, then by continuing to do so you are indeed showing your hatred for your Saviour and God your Father, and you will indeed be lost!
     “And these [who refused to do His will] shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.” Matthew 25:46.

     So dear ones, I believe you can now plainly see that eternal life, or everlasting destruction, are each closely connected with this very serious issue of whether we really love all our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ or not!  And as this is truly a salvational issue, then exactly how are we to manifest and express this true unselfish Christ-like love towards all our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus?  This is what we will be investigating into in our next Newsletter.


     We consider it a privilege to help precious souls understand more of God’s word through the Bible Study Course that we offer.  There have been many who have so far successfully completed this Course, and who also desired to be baptized into Jesus Christ.  So after some months of planning, 9 of the baptismal candidates, were able to all meet together with me in Ohio in September of this year.  And after verifying that each one knew the truth, I had the distinct honor of baptizing all 9 of these precious souls in the waters of Lake Erie!   Praise the Lord!
     Even though it was a cloudy, cool and windy Sabbath afternoon, yet it was still a solemn as well as a joyous occasion as all 9 publically confessed their acceptance of the Lord Jesus Christ and His present truth.  And just before we entered into the water, the Lord parted the cloudy sky and allowed the sun to shine down its warming rays of light on us all, as each were baptized under the water into Jesus Christ.
     I ask that our readers will please pray for each of these precious souls.  All 9 are continuing to stand firm for their Lord and His truth!  But the Devil often singles out and targets newly baptized souls with his fierce temptations in order to try and cause them to doubt and then give up their faith.  So please remember them, and thank you for keeping these in your prayers.

TO OUR SUPPORTERS: Please know that "Let There Be Light" Ministries is not using your support to build itself up into a kingdom, nor are we trying to acquire expensive video, TV or shortwave facilities.  But we are trying to spread the truth as quickly and economically as possible.  Please also know that you have played an important part in helping spread the Present Truth into various parts of this world, including through the printed page, through the living full-time workers and ministers we sponsor, and also through our Web Sites, Radio Station and Home Church on the internet.  This is how the Loud Cry of the third angel will be spread, and is now being spread!  If the Lord impresses you to help in these endeavors, your donations and prayers will be greatly appreciated.  MAY GOD RICHLY BLESS YOU!


     "Let There Be Light" Ministries is committed to the spreading of the full present truth gospel message worldwide, and has been doing so since 1986.  This Ministry has operating expenses covering the areas of: printing, publishing, and writing of present truth books, booklets, tracts, and other literature; DVD, video and audio taping, production, and distribution; supporting several ministers and workers in foreign Countries; mail order – both domestic and foreign; traveling to hold meetings – both locally, nationally, and internationally; answering correspondence and questions regarding the message of truth; offering National and International Bible studies; sending free present truth literature to contacts in many poor Countries; etc.
     Your gracious prayers and support is greatly appreciated and needed.  Without the Lord's guidance, blessings, and your support, this Ministry could not continue to reach out worldwide with the precious message of Revelation 14:6-12 & 18:1-5.

     May our God and Saviour continue to lead and guide all those who have helped us reach souls who sit in darkness with the precious light of gospel truth.  May our supporters remember that they share in each and every soul who has been reached by this Ministry and converted to the Lord and His present truth!


     We are currently supporting several workers in many different Countries on a monthly basis.  We check into the economy of each area and supply a base support which is adequate depending on their situation, but not extravagant.  This base support is to ensure that the monthly needs of each worker and family is met for that month so that the worker may devote full time to the ministry work.  In addition to this, we are sending extra materials for evangelism, and money for printing, publishing, holding meetings, traveling, and other necessary areas in spreading the Present Truth in their Country.  And as the work extends, especially will the expenses for evangelism expand.  Whatever you can send to help in this necessary and vital area is greatly appreciated.
     The work of spreading God's present truth is not to be limited, but must extend world-wide to every nation, kindred, tongue, and people before our Saviour can come (Matthew 24:14).  What better way of spreading the Present Truth Gospel than by having workers who speak the native language, who reside in that particular Country, who can live and preach the truth, visit the interests in their homes, and spread the printed truth translated into their native language!
     "Our publications should be printed in other languages, that foreign nations may be reached.  Much can be done through the medium of the press, but still more can be accomplished if the influence of the living preacher goes with our publications....The Lord has moved upon men of other tongues and has brought them under the influence of the truth, that they might be qualified to labor in His cause." Testimonies, vol 3, p 204-205.

     Please financially help us to continue supporting our current ministers and workers on a consistent basis, so that the spreading of the truth will not be interrupted but can quickly lighten this dark world with the glory of God.

     "Every opportunity should be improved to extend the truth to other nations.  This will be attended with considerable expense, but expense should in no case hinder the performance of this work.  Means are of value only as they are used to advance the interest of the kingdom of God.  The Lord has lent men means for this very purpose, to use in sending the truth to their fellow men."  Testimonies, vol 3, p 208.

Dear brother bob,
     Sabbath’s lesson of the sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ for humanity was so beautiful that it touch me so much that I cried.  For the first time I understood it completely.  It was on my mind the rest of the Sabbath day.  I have never saw it like that before, so today I decided to read more about the sanctuary and its furniture.  Sure, when it got to the altar of sacrifice, it took me to Calvary.  As I was reading, it took me to the Spirit of Prophesy, p 168.  When I started to read, it said this:
     "When the Christian fully comprehends the magnitude of the great sacrifice made by the Majesty of Heaven, then will the plan of salvation be magnified before him, and to meditate upon Calvary will awaken the deepest and most sacred emotions of his heart.  Contemplation of the Saviour’s matchless love should absorb the mind, touch and melt the heart, refine and elevate the affections, and completely transform the whole character.  The language of the apostle is, "I determined not to know anything among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified."  And we may look toward Calvary and exclaim, "God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world."...
     Thank you Jesus, and thank you brother bob [for sharing this truth]!
Sincerely your little sister in Christ, S.C., Ohio.

The LTBM Online Church.
     Heb. 6:10-11.
     I so much appreciate your faithful support and prayers that through such commitment that God provides abundant means for successful warfare on this universe!  Rom. 8:37. The Bible and SOP is to be the armory where we may equip ourselves for the struggles while still on earth.
     The experience in true ministry will find opportunities to speak upon the many things pertaining to the future immortal life. This experience thus gained will be of greatest value to those whom God is fitting for the work in the ministry....
     On several occasions I traveled across to those places to present my lessons on Unity and Gospel Order.  Until in 2012, when we devised a method that each country within the region should send in a speaker for the camp meeting to present the different lessons.  This gave us great encouragement to think and share about the wide rage of ministries which God has rest upon the church, and therefore a Constitution was necessary to put clear certain positions!...
     On 15th June 2013, I requested Elder Bob while at the online service to offer a special prayer for that particular meeting, and the next day was the appointed date of the meeting.  TM pg 24.  When I rang bro. ____ of ____ – Kenya immediately after the meeting; told me that the brethren had accepted a local church Constitution and those who were in this meeting at ____ on the interim oversight committee just came to formalize and adopt the document.  Praise God.
     We are now ready to establish and have roots planted in different places as in SOP MH pg 194-5.
God bless you all.  B.J., Uganda.

Dear Robert Sessler,
     Many Christian greetings from Tanzania.  I hope that you are fine doing well in the Lord’s vineyard.  I am fine doing well.  Yesterday, I finished the evangelistic meeting for more than two weeks – June 11-29, 2013.  I am feeling very tired because of speaking for three hours every day.  Besides, I baptized one soul this morning as the result of preaching.  The Lord is adding more precious souls every time we have meetings or visit the people in their homes.
     Dear Sessler, although I am tired, I shall rest for two weeks.  I have another big meeting in July. This time I am going to work in the ____ city for almost 3 months and I believe that more people will embrace the present truth or become aware that this is PRESENT TRUTH.  I am attacked from all sides, but in the name of the Lord still continue to press forward.  Sustenance is through prayers and fasting to my Lord.
     Dear Sessler, just imagine, bringing this new light to the people who have been spoilt by the Devil from one generation to another.  It is not easy as one may think.  I acknowledge your tireless efforts in making these messages available in English.  I have reduced a lot of them in Kiswahili and Tanzanians, Kenyans and other people around East Africa are getting them in the language they can read.  In my preachings, some news reporters write of this new movement even without my knowledge because it is an unusual movement which many observers perceive to threaten the survival of all other religious denominations....
     Dear Sessler, I thought of asking for financial assistance from the beginning.  However, I have learnt that God is not man. “God’s work done in God’s way shall never lack supply.”  I do not budget for financial assistance.  There are many rich people in Tanzania.  However, Present Truth does not have many supporters.  Those whom I thought could support this job after being baptized, have become the bitter enemies of the truth to the extent of hating me because I am making the way to heaven too narrow.  They desire to water down the messages that they may harvest many souls who will sit comfortably in the current movement paying the tithe and offerings.  To this idea, I have declined and anyone who wants to preach smooth messages I have told him/her to go back to the SDA Church....
     All our enemies fear to face us.  The government authorities always comment that our words are strong and frightening.  Because of the hardship we have encountered, we set aside Tuesday and Thursday for fasting and praying weekly.  We have seen the hand of the Lord working.  Sometimes, even without budgeting, the Lord’s business has been carried out.  Permission to preach the Present Truth has been granted us from the Police Authorities and the Government without any reservation.  Let us work when it is still daylight....
     May the gracious Lord continue to sustain you in His vineyard.
T.K., Tanzania.

     Thank you elder robert sessler for the ministry.  May the Lord come through for you & the ministry as we strive to be amongst the 144000, living for Jesus day by day.
C.H., Internet.

     Thank you very much for your website Light Ministries. I have just started reading through the site and I look forward to reading through it!
     The article I have started with is The True Church.  I agree that the people are the church...I sure appreciate you all and what you do. Thanks so much for your time :-).
S.L., Internet.

     I am thrilled with your robust presentation of the humanity of our Lord.  As you may know, this has been the theme of many of my books in the last 50 years!  Without this understanding, we can see why there is so much play-acting in the church today....
Cheers, H.D., Internet.

(Two e-mails) Elder Robert Sessler,
     Hello and God bless.  I used to attend the POGM Sabbath services and fellowshipped with its members.  But an incident had led me to see that there is a bad spirit in this church.  A spirit of pride and self-righteousness.  A spirit of Laodicea....
     I used to think that you were an evil man...The POGM church painted you as such.  But...I've realized there is more to the story, and that you are being unfairly judged by many....
     I just read your 4 part study on the nature of Christ.  I cried while reading it, praising God for the truth about what Christ truly had to go thru and risk for the sake of humanity.  Knowing this truly glorifies the Saviour ever more, and we cannot rob Him of His glory.  Thank you for providing the study.  Your study is scripturally sound and backed up by inspiration.  Which leads me to this conclusion: The SDR leadership (Nicholas and Craig) has misrepresented you on this issue, and have a lot to answer for....I am trusting the Spirit and see you as a man falsely accused by the same men that has shown me the same condemning spirit.  I do hope to attend your Sabbath services....
God bless, B.J., Internet.

Dear Robert Sessler,
     You don't know me, but I know you and your story.  I'm with the POGM, but I'm not an official member...I've read your testimony...I just want you to know that I believe you, and I have presented your testimony to the church....
For now, take care and God bless.  B.B., Internet.

Dearest elder Robert,
     1 John 3:1.
     Thank you for your email....
     Sorry, it was not my intention to make you feel uncomfortable about myself mentioning Nicholas.  I can only imagine what it must be like for you with him and his unchristian endeavors to publically destroy your ministry under the cover of trying to "save" you.  From the little I can see, this experience is making you stronger. The last reply email Nic sent me seems to possibly be his last, but I responded nevertheless even though he said there was no need to respond....
     May God continue to bless and honour the few true ministers that exist in this world (is my prayer).
1 Samuel 2:30.  B.D., Internet.

Greetings in the grace of our Lord!
     I just want to say thank you for your heart of love for truth!  And the time you've given to the topics.
     This shows a pure love to God in spreading His truth to those who will not hear it from their pastors.  God is using this ministry in a huge way, and I am so grateful to people like you!  And I know your humility in giving God the glory – and I already have given it to Him, too.
     May our Lord bless you and your family abundantly!
P.G., Internet.

Greetings from California!!...
     We must be doing something right as Satan has sure been putting up the road blocks....It seems more and more the world around us is falling apart, and meeting people who really want to follow the Lord all the way are getting to be fewer and fewer.  I pray everyday that we all remain faithful.
Love, E. & D.



(Combination of 2 letters) Dear Brother Bob,
     Glory be to the God of Jacob, the Defender of Israel. I have received your message with pleasure....
     As times change, sometimes it requires us to adjust ourselves accordingly.  With advancing technology, I have found it necessary to think of having a portable computer that can enable me [to] access the internet from anywhere other than the house.  In this regard I request for a good fast laptop to assist access materials away from home as when we are out for outreach or in camp meetings.  I surely wouldn't mind a used one if in good working condition.  I will surely appreciate....
     Greater love than this can we not find, that God sent His begotten Son to die for sinners of whom I am chief!
     I have received your message without a hitch.  I praise God for that.  One more thing though, we have had registration problems for quite some time now, we hope God will help us this time round.  We shall have a meeting at ____ this coming Sunday to finalize the Constitution part.
     Secondly, I think I won't be out of order to inform you that with God's blessings we finally moved into our new residence on 8th April, our new home, though the house is not complete yet in many ways.  However we are comfortable that we no longer have the monster rent after us.  Only we are not yet connected to the power grid due to a hike in installation charges.  But I'm hopefully looking forward for God's blessings that I may [be] able to access the internet from my house.  Then it will be more convenient to do more than through cybers or someone's house like it is now.
Thank you and may God bless you all.  B.I., Kenya.

Dear Bro Bob,
     3 John 2.
     Hi!  Bro Bob how are you?  I am sorry that I wasn't able to write you as often as I want.  We were just so busy in our work and for the activities that we did here from the month of March till April.
     Since March, there are several youths who arrived and stayed here in our house and who helped me in our work here.  We did a house to house visitation, helping the sick, giving Bible studies, encouraging those that are weak through singing, giving out tracts and visiting other churches.
     Last March 24-29, we held a week youth camp here.  We gather all our youth here in ____ and for one week, trained them.  We gave them message that will help them [be] strong in faith and will bring them nearer and closer to the Lord.  After the camp, there are some youth who stayed and did not go home yet.  They joined also in our work.
     On April 7-12, we held vacation Bible school for unbelieving children.  But a week before that, on April 1-5, we did house to house, inviting children and asking permission to parents to let their children participate in the vacation Bible school that we are going to hold and we did some preparation.  We held two vacation Bibles school session in the same date but in different area, one in the morning and on the other is on the afternoon.  Though very hard for us, but through the grace of God we did it well.  In one area, there are less than 40 children who enrolled, and on the other place are less than 20 only, since children would come and go.  We are very happy for the result of all of this.
     We are hoping and praying that it will help the youth and children to know what is God's will and purpose for them and that they will choose to serve and glorify Him.  Please continue to pray for our work here, you too are always included in our prayer.
     Till here for now bro bob.  May God continue to bless and protect you and your family.
In Christ, s.b., Philippines.


Dearest Elder Sessler,
     Greetings from the letter of 3rd John verse2.  ”Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”  Health has been one of greatest challenge, [and] the enemy of souls is working to see that we lose out in this very vital area of our lives.  I’m now better and do thank our heavenly Father and your earnest prayers that have helped us to be what we are and saved us many a dangers.
     We have been kept at hold, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Eph 6:12.  I feel I love to move [travel], but I find my self held [back].  All this are indicative that it is not in man that his foot steps are guided, but with careful war plan we are more than conquerors [as] it takes God to have us the victory.
     All has not been thorny [though].  I have seen some rare moments [when] the Lord brought some fella/person so brilliant in analyzing things and very quick at reading [and he understood the truth]....: e.g. he got something from To Be God of One World page 45 last paragraph “In 1892, American illuminists sponsored a series of lectures in New York by English illuminist FRANCES “Fanny” Wright.  She advocated the entire Weishauptian program…including Communism made more palatable by the label of “equal opportunity and equal rights”, Atheism, Emancipation of Women and free love.”  He says the new Pope being [a] Jesuit...seeming [to have the same] mission – ecumenism, equal opportunity and equal rights, Emancipation of women and free love.  Which he has displayed, as it was [promoted] by the English lady.  Jesuits are ready to do anything as long their mission is done.
     “Throughout Christendom, Protestantism was menaced by formidable foes.  The first triumphs of the Reformation past, Rome summoned new forces, hoping to accomplish its destruction.  At this time, the order of the Jesuits was created, the most cruel, unscrupulous, and powerful of all the champions of popery.  Cut off from every earthly tie and human interest, dead to the claims of natural affection, reason and conscience wholly silenced, they knew no rule, no tie, but that of their order, and no duty but to extend its power.  The gospel of Christ had enabled its adherents to meet danger and endure suffering, undismayed by cold, hunger, toil, and poverty, to uphold the banner of truth in face of the rack, the dungeon, and the stake.  To combat these forces, Jesuitism inspired its followers with a fanaticism that enabled them to endure like dangers, and to oppose to the power of truth all the weapons of deception.  There was no crime too great for them to commit, no deception too base for them to practice, no disguise too difficult for them to assume.  Vowed to perpetual poverty and humility, it was their studied aim to secure wealth and power, to be devoted to the overthrow of Protestantism, and the re-establishment of the papal supremacy.” GC 88, p 234.2....
     When he was given Great Controversy he said this is the most timely book which speaks of what is happening [in] Roman Catholic: and Ministry of Healing talks about our freedom from satanic controlled health system.  He really appreciated the messages and kept saying many do not know what is happening behind the scenes.  He is army man and also teaching in one their schools.  He is by the names ____ ____.  Another person, was a pastor, took a News Letter from me.  He has not returned [it] but as the scriptures say in Philippians 1:6 “Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:”...

(Combination of 2 letters) Dear Elder Bob and Sr Michele,
     I'm glad to express my heartfelt gratitude for receiving the support that you sent me.  I will always remember the greatest efforts that you are doing in helping to spread this most precious truth for this time.  I am really humbled, my brethren.  However I am still at the receiving end in regard to the use of the computer since the house I am currently lodging has no electricity yet.  It’s my prayer that the Lord would also continue to bless you with enough means to enable me to manage to lodge where there is power to continue translation work.  Otherwise I am doing all I can in this field of work.  Thank you very much for this support and also your prayers on my behalf....
     I wish to thank you for the Newsletter, I was really blessed....
     The Namibian church called me to attend their AGM on the 30th of March....I began my journey 4 days before the scheduled date.  When I arrived I visited br ____'s home in an attempt to resolve their problems with the church.  We managed to discuss during the night and they were however open enough to chat our way through.  Although I did not manage to bring them back to the fold, at least it was a stepping stone.  I had done this work also in my previous trip with the ____ family, and it was quite fruitful.
     The AGM however made very important decisions for the growth of the church, and Lord blessed their work....
May God richly bless you my brother.  B.N., Zimbabwe.
