Analyses Today's News, with the Prophesies of THE WORLD TOMORROW

Box 111, Pasadena, California

June 10, 1948

Dear Friends and Co-Workers:

   GREETINGS! I have but little space to tell MUCH! Here is the June number of The PLAIN TRUTH! I hope you like it. Conditions and trends in this world are not pleasant to contemplate. But we are commanded to WATCH, and pray always, that we may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man when Jesus appears. It is vital that we understand both prophecy and world developments.

   Definite plans are laid to publish The PLAIN TRUTH regularly every month at last. But how the devil has fought to prevent this!

   He is wroth with this vital work of God. He knows he has but a short time. He does not want the people warned. He does not want the true Gospel Christ brought and preached — the GOOD NEWS of His KINGDOM — proclaimed in all the world as a witness. But Christ says it shall be so proclaimed. He is delivering us from every thrust and attack of Satan! If we understand prophecy, we know we have a few more years, probably eight or ten — to complete the tremendous work to which God has called us. The events against which we must warn the people will take a few brief years to work out. We do have time, but NO TIME TO LOSE! We must be up and about our Father's business with greater zeal than ever!

   Ambassador College has completed successfully its first difficult year. God has opened WONDERFUL opportunities for the second year, beginning September 12. We have now undoubtedly the best course in radio broadcasting in the nation. New housing, to be constructed this summer adjoining the campus and leased by us, is opening to provide adequate dormitory space for students. The 1948-49 college catalog is ready for prospective students.

   We have weathered a terrible ordeal, since last August. In March, just when we were two-thirds out of debt, we were thrown off the air on our two great super-power stations. This proved a more severe blow than the unexpected building reconstruction we were forced into. But now WE ARE BACK ON THE AIR AGAIN — only, at my request, we are to broadcast SUNDAY NIGHTS ONLY on XEG and XERB (and same time as always on other stations) until July 11th, WHEN WE GO BACK ON XEG FULL TIME AGAIN — at 8 every night except Saturday, and 5:30 every week-day morning, Central time. This will allow me an imperative three or four weeks' period of fasting and prayer and rest. I have had to carry such a crushing load, under such terrific strain, losing much sleep, that I am simply TIRED of body and mind. I must be FIT, rejuvenated physically, keen and alert mentally, at the very top of efficiency for the great work that now lies ahead! God is delivering His servants who trusted Him from the efforts of Satan to destroy this work. THE WORK IS GOING FORWARD WITH GREATLY INCREASED POWER. Rejoice with us! Continue, even at great personal sacrifice, to stand with me in your PRAYERS, and in tithes and liberal offerings. Increase the amounts if you possibly can. The need for funds is MOST URGENT! We were set back considerably by being thrown off the track. We must redouble our efforts now, while the work is bounding back with RENEWED LIFE. GOD BLESS YOU for your loyalty, faith, and sacrifice!

Sincerely, in Jesus' name,
Herbert W. Armstrong
