Dear Brethren,

AT LAST! The Supreme Court of the United States—after 50 years of the slaughtering of 62 to 65 million unborn in the womb—has finally struck down Roe vs. Wade. While this is a great decision by the Court, abortion has not been eliminated in America. Rather, the ruling has sent the decision on abortion back to the states—where the voters will decide. So now, instead of a single national fight to eliminate abortion, the battle will be multiplied to each of the 50 states! Upon hearing of the Court’s decision, the reaction of the forces of evil was immediate and predictable. They had their battle plans in high gear—to riot and destroy everything in their path in an attempt to intimidate lawmakers into making abortion legal across the country. Many conservative pro-life states moved quickly to fully outlaw all abortions—only to be hampered by a barrage of lawsuits. So battle lines are being drawn and the fight rages on. Only time will reveal how it turns out state by state. Even liberal big tech and mega corporations (such as Amazon) are voicing their disapproval—announcing that they will accommodate any female employee who desires an abortion, providing transportation to the nearest state that legally offers such services.

But why should abortion even exist? Ultimately, abortion is the result of a licentious lifestyle. When traditional forms of birth control fail or are otherwise neglected, abortion becomes the “solution of last resort.” Women who use abortion as birth control—and that covers 99 percent of cases—are only interested in maintaining their immoral way of life. They couldn’t care less about protecting the life of their unborn baby. Thus, breaking the Seventh Commandment—“you shall not commit adultery” (which includes all premarital sex)—is the root cause of abortion!

How did our nation ever get to this point? Over the past 100 years, the forces of evil have gradually removed the knowledge of God and His laws from our colleges and schools, our government, our entertainment and music, our businesses, and our public discourse—at every level. Indeed, God has been removed from nearly every facet of American life.

Worst of all, mainstream “Christian” churches have succeeded in replacing the knowledge of the true Jesus Christ with a false Jesus—while virtually eliminating God the Father! This has led to a watering-down of God’s teachings—to the outright dismissal of God’s laws and commandments. Thus the licentiousness that plagues not only the nation, but even our churches!

Today, in states controlled by the satanic “progressive” Democratic Party, on-demand abortion can be performed at any stage of pregnancy up to birth—and some are openly advocating infanticide after birth. In California, the legislature is ready to pass just such a law. Without a doubt, they are fully deceived and are willingly doing Satan’s bidding (Rev. 12:9).

Indeed, the six woes of God brought out by the prophet Isaiah are actively coming to pass before our eyes! They reveal our nation’s step-by-step slide into lawlessness as we reject God—and the subsequent penalties. Notice: “Woe to those who join house to house, that lay field to field, until there is no place left, and you are made to dwell alone in the midst of the land! The Lord of hosts swore in my ears, ‘Truly, many houses shall be deserted, even great and fair, without inhabitant.’…

Woe to those who rise up early in the morning to go after strong drink [or drugs]; who continue late into the night while wine inflames them! And the lyre, and the harp, the drum, and pipe, and wine, are at their feasts; but they do not regard the work of the Lord. Yea, they do not see the work of His hands. Therefore My people are gone [will go] into exile because they have no [true] knowledge [of God], and their honorable men are famished, and their multitude is dried up with thirst. Therefore the grave has enlarged its appetite, and opened its mouth without limit; and down goes her glory and multitude and brawlers, and he who rejoices in her, shall go down into it. And man is bowed down [with oppression], and men are brought low, and the eyes of the lofty are humbled. But the Lord of hosts is exalted in judgment, and God, the Holy One, is sanctified in righteousness….

Woe to those who draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin with cart ropes; who say, ‘Let Him hurry and hasten His work, so that we may see it; and let the purpose of the Holy One of Israel draw near and come, so that we may know!’

Woe to those who call evil good and good evil; who put darkness for light and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!

Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!

Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink [and drugs]; who justify the wicked for a bribe, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!

“Therefore as the fire devours the stubble, and the flame burns up the chaff, their root shall be like rottenness, and their blossoms shall go up like dust because they have cast away the law of the Lord of hosts, and despised the Word of the Holy One of Israel.

“Therefore, the anger of the Lord is kindled against His people, and He has stretched out His hand [in judgment] against them, and has stricken them; and the hills trembled, and their dead bodies were as filth in the midst of the streets. In all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still [because there is no true, godly repentance]. And He will lift up a banner to distant nations, and will whistle for them from the ends of the earth; and behold, they shall come with swift speed [invasion by foreign nations]” (Isa. 5:8-26). In fact, China already controls or owns many major businesses and banks—and owns vast amounts of farmland in America. And millions of immigrants are flooding across the nation’s borders—God’s punishment for killing 62-65 million of the unborn!

Only True, Godly Repentance Can Turn Back God’s Correction: Here is the kind of repentance necessary for this nation in order for God to lift His heavy hand of punishment: “Seek the Lord while He may be found; call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; and let him return to the Lord, and He will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon. For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor your ways My ways,’ says the Lord. ‘For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain comes down, and the snow from the heavens, and does not return there, but waters the earth, and makes it bring forth and bud, and gives seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall My Word be which goes out of My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall certainly do what I sent it to do.’… Thus says the Lord, ‘Keep justice and do righteousness; for My salvation is near to come, and My righteousness to be revealed. Blessed is the man who does this, and the son of man who lays hold on it; who keeps the Sabbath from profaning it; and keeps his hand from doing any evil” (Isa. 55:6-11; 56:1-2).

It must be complete, true repentance from the heart: “ ‘Therefore even now,’ says the Lord, ‘turn to Me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning. Yes, rend your heart and not your garments, and return to the Lord your God: for He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and He repents of the evil’ ” (Joel 2:12-13).


Brethren, we thank God the Father and Jesus Christ, and you personally, for your continued faithfulness in your love for God and each other—as well as for your personal prayers for us and all the brethren. Thank you for your generosity in your tithes and offerings. We know that God will continue to bless you and keep watch over you in everything and in every circumstance. We continue to pray for you daily—for your health, your healing, and that you stay close to God so that His love and grace may be upon you at all times, regardless of your situation or trials.


With love in Christ Jesus,


Fred R. Coulter

Hi Fred: Just a note of thanks for all the faithful work you have done to help the saints become stronger in the knowledge of God.

I have been in the Church going on 50 years. Was baptized at age 23, and of course there have been periods of “being on fire” for God and lukewarm periods as well. Many lessons are learned throughout life. When the Church went liberal in the early 90s—coupled with me in my early 40s going to nursing school and with my husband going through a midlife crisis—I got sidetracked. There was no longer a church of God near me, so I fizzled out for about five years. It was very scary in the world without God!

When the UCG started up in my area, I went back and was excited. But, unfortunately, over time I became lukewarm. I did not find spiritual fellowship at church, just social. And the sermons on how to live a Christian life were, I felt, lacking depth. After services, no one talked about God or the sermons—just about life in general.

I was so glad when I started listening to your tapes—and once again my first love was rekindled! Which was around 2007. I have kept that fire going, with God’s Holy Spirit of course—and thanks to your sermons and teaching methods. I am so excited and thankful for my original calling. What an insult to God to not appreciate what He has offered us.

As you approach the end of your physical journey, I just wanted you to know how much I value and appreciate you as one of God’s servants.

See you in the Kingdom! A sister in Christ.—DW, Florida


Hello Fred: I received the “Get Well Soon” card that you sent. It made me so happy I cried. So, thank you very much for your prayers. My husband and I are feeling stronger every day.

I also wanted to thank you for all the things you do for all of us. Truly God has blessed you in all the works of your hands. You have always inspired me from day one. I knew for over 25 years that there was a gray headed man who would help me study the Bible. And God sent you to me and many others, for you to teach us. If there was something I didn’t understand, I would just put it on my imaginary shelf and wait until God told me what it meant. In His time.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart! There is not enough room on this paper to express my love and gratitude for you. May God the Father and Jesus Christ bless you to be on the Sea of Glass. I hope we see each other there some day. It’s going to be crowded, so look for me. Okay? Thank you. In Christian love.—BR, Oklahoma



Dear Fred: Thank you for all you have done and continue to do to expound the Word of God correctly. Thank you for being careful with the truth of God’s word and not trying to put your own interpretation on any part of it. With all the convenience of modern communication, it is remarkable that so many people seem content to wallow in lies and deceptions—and be comfortable with that. Thank you for being careful and diligent in providing help to those looking for and appreciating the truth! Sincerely.—RM


Dear CBCG: Thank you for the live Sabbath services. Thank you for the cloth. Thank you for the Bible. Thank you for all you do. Prayers for all! Sincerely.—JL, Oregon


Dear Fred: Thank you for your dedication to teaching the truth of God, especially today. I have been in the Church for quite some time, having been baptized in 1976 in the WCG. Although I have studied and heard many sermons over the years, I am especially thankful for the CBCG’s thorough studies and literature—which has expanded my knowledge more than ever. This proves to me that “yes, you can teach an old dog new tricks”! Thank you again and may God bless the preaching and teaching of the CBCG ministry.—KH, Georgia


Hi Pastor Fred: I wanted to thank you for my new Bible. Also, thank you for all your help with my family; you have always been there for us. Sincerely.—RR, California


Dear Fred: Just wanted to say hello and thank you for your Spring holy day messages! I enjoyed the 7th day of UB with the Psalm 73 message and how you described that passage as pertaining to our society today! So true! As I have mentioned to a few of the elders, the sermon messages—be it from the Go-to-Meetings or from your websites—are all getting more in depth, and we can plainly see that God’s Holy Spirit is guiding, directing, and opening up more and more of His truths and prophecies for all of us in this most incredible church of God! We feel very blessed with all the knowledge we have gained, from everything that is being offered to us from all of you! And we are grateful to be a part of it! May God continue to bless you, our elders, and the brethren! Our love.—R&T


Dear Fred: Thank you for all the inspiring sermons you sent us. Have a meaningful Passover and Spring holy days with the brethren! In Christian love.—G&O, Florida


Dear Fred and CBCG: Your detailed lessons on the Passover are such a blessing—like “when is between the two evenings” and “the explanation for 400 and 430 years for the sojourn in Egypt”—and the “maledictory oath with Abraham.” May you have a blessed and peaceful Passover season. I keep you and the CBCG in my prayers. God bless.—LT, Colorado


Dear Fred: I’m reading your wonderful book on the holy days of God. God’s plan is so amazing, and you teach it so beautifully. I’ve already had some “aha” moments that just thrill me! I long so much for my husband to understand, but he doesn’t. Thankfully he will some day! Sending love and much gratitude.—LJ, Alabama


Hi Fred: Hope all is well with you. I’m okay, just wanted to give you a short update concerning the contacts you have been forwarding to me. Some of these contacts from Kenya are individuals I have known for some time (all in pursuit of the same thing—self gain.) And the majority of the new ones I’ve been contacting (and becoming acquainted with) are not really looking for truth or spiritual growth, but are focused on the same thing—financial self gain.

But, we need to continue to check them—because some are sincere. They’re the minority, of course, but we will stay in touch with the ones who are sincere. They already have access to all your teachings and booklets, etc., and they like conversing with me by e-mail. Especially the man from West Africa who is alone; we converse often, which is good, since we all need encouragement.

Yes, we all need encouragement. Especially now! Everyone in God’s Church should be so excited now, seeing all these end time events and knowing that soon our Lord will be headed back to meet His Church in the air, up on that Sea of Glass. Soon the suffering of so many (and many suffering horrendously) from around this world will end.

I’m now back from Kenya. Had to cut my stay short, but the trip was successful; some issues that needed to be addressed have been nicely resolved—and things are good with the brethren, although we continue to struggle to feed everyone.

Our brethren living in Third World countries really suffer. Even now, many Kenyans are going hungry and there are occasional deaths from starvation. Also sad to see that so many young boys have been committing suicide to escape their suffering, usually by hanging themselves. Not sure if I previously told you about a recent incident—a 14-year-old from the village drank poison (pesticide) thinking it would be a quick and easy death. But he suffered three days in the hospital before dying.

Life is rough for our African brethren. But you have been helping them, and they send you their heartfelt thanks!... Thanks again for all your help. Many widows and many church orphans are being assisted in their affliction.—BG


Dear Fred: The Days of Unleavened Bread are now ending, and I feel inspired to send you a greeting and a “thank you” for all you do for the brethren, the work, and our great God. We had a wonderful Passover service in our home with several brethren and a very rewarding Feast of Unleavened Bread. We now look forward to the day of Pentecost.

I want to thank you for the Shipshewana Feast site. We were able to attend there and found it so meaningful and enjoyable. I remember those awesome festivals that we enjoyed in Goshen, Indiana, so many years ago. The memories always bring a big smile to my face. A number of those brethren lie sleeping in their graves. How quickly the time has passed. I could write more, but perhaps I should just write more often. Take care of yourself and may God bless you. With much love.—J&TW, Indiana


Hi Fred: Thank you so much for your example before the brethren. We learn a lot from you sharing your knowledge of God’s word, especially with your understanding of Greek. Thank you for your prayers, and know that we regularly pray for you. May Passover and the Days of Unleavened Bread be a blessing in your life.—B&JT


Dear Fred: Hello from Sengera House in Kenya. We hope all of you are having an uplifting and spiritual Feast. The brethren here send you their highest greeting. I am happy to report that we had five baptisms. Baptizing in this area can be a challenge, as it is difficult to find enough water. Deep in the bush we dammed a small stream and dug for the water to be deep enough.

We had 25 members who took the Passover here in Sengera, and there were about 60 in attendance for the Night to Be Remembered. Thanks to your donors we were also able to assist 14 remote groups. I hope to send an update with more pictures as reports come in. Thank you all for the help you have given our impoverished brethren.—BG


Hi Fred: I really enjoyed your live message on the Two Mikes show. How refreshing it was to hear you speak God’s word to people who have never known anything about the OT. How delightful it was to hear you say that Jesus Christ was the Lord God of the OT and was the one who spoke the Ten Commandments and is the Lord of the Sabbath! You delivered the message beautifully. How alive God’s words truly are. Thank you Fred for all the long hours of study you put into every message! We love you and pray for your good health and for you to have the strength to fulfill God’s will.

I did want to mention that I was getting a little concerned about some of the messages being somewhat not biblical but based on personal ideas or quotes from books. Having several people make mention of that to me set off an alarm in my mind. I remembered that Worldwide started doing that, and I have to say it grieved me. So I have been asking God to reveal this to you and the elders. 

In the following week or two, the elder at our service made mention that we will be teaching from the Word of God: the Law, the Prophets, holy days, beliefs, and doctrines—and not ideas. And then this past week you let us know that at the Elders’ Conference you reminded them to teach the Word of God and to feed the brethren! Thank you so much. I know God has heard and answered my prayers and the prayers of others. May God bless this wonderful work as we follow Him. Thank you, Fred.—VM, Ohio


Hi Fred: Recently we sat down with a transcript of your sermon “To Seek and Thirst After God” (Sabbath after Unleavened Bread), April 23. We read and watched, as we do with all your sermons. My husband and I were so moved by your message that we were both in tears. It was profound! So much suddenly clicked for us. We have been hoping that we would be able to stand approved before our Father. Now it feels that this is more than a hope. It has sunk in that He personally calls us, and that our response is critical to being chosen. And you have explained that He and Christ work with us individually and personally. And that He is delighted in calling us, delighted in opening our minds, delighted in helping us understand about Jesus Christ. He wants us in His Kingdom!

We are in our 70s and have been in various churches of God. We know we are looking straight into the face of the end times—and it is scary to think of all that lies ahead for our families. It is wonderful to have the comforting tools that you point out in the Psalms; the way you string them together they become words of comfort and encouragement, giving us the determination to aim for the highest possible goal. To hear our Father tell us, “Well done!”

You’re right, Psalm 20 is loaded! We find ourselves doing more and more Bible study, reading our Bibles, and praying more than ever before. It is truly “seeking and thirsting after God”—and not because we feel we need to, but now because we want to! We so appreciate your teachings and all that you put into it for our benefit! We now meet with a small fellowship group in southern Alberta. What a wonderful gift that has turned out to be after being by ourselves for so many years. God has brought everything together for us and we praise His glorious name!

By the way, we loved your recent appearance with the “Two Mikes.” You hit it out of the park! Praying for your continued good health. Most sincerely.—JAF, Alberta


Dear Fred and Staff: Thank you so much for all you do to shepherd God’s people: the abundance of sermons, transcripts, books, MP3s, etc.—all rooted firmly in the Bible, the Word of God. Especially helpful this year was the “Passover Preparation” series on the CBCG website. Also, The Christian Passover is the most helpful book on the Passover I have ever read and studied, and will be a resource I can use each year along with the Bible. Thank you! Sincerely.—BW, Pennsylvania


Dear Fred: Thankful for all you do for the holy days and the Sabbath and for all you do to help us by providing access to the true word of God on a daily basis. Thank you for your perseverance in protecting and providing the Faithful Version of the words of God. Sincerely.—R&M


Dear Fred: Help! I need to order another copy of God’s Plan for Mankind—I love it! I’ve been playing God’s Plan and the Christian Passover since February—until I couldn’t find the God’s Plan CDs. I wanted to order another one anyway, so now is a good time to order it. I am going to listen to those CDs every month.

Our weather here is not so nice; so because I can’t do anything outside yet, I can listen to them all day. I cannot stand TV or radio. All they are to me is noise and I can’t stand noise. I can listen to these CDs—actually all the sermon CDs.

Enclosed is my monthly offering and a special offering for the God’s Plan For Mankind book. It covers all of the holy days. Thank you for all you all are doing. It’s awesome. I’m very grateful for all the wonderful study aids you have made available. I had a wonderful Passover and Night to Be Much Observed, and the first day of Unleavened Bread. Our weather wasn’t good, so I didn’t have to drive 30 miles round-trip and drive home so late at night. I don’t like night driving and never have. So, for me this year was perfect. I’m planning to do it again next Passover, God willing.

Thank you again, you all are great! Sincerely.—JW, Minnesota


Dear Fred: People around the U.S., and indeed around the world, are lamenting and crying for the 21 killed at the Texas school. Sad it is, indeed; but who’s crying and lamenting for the millions murdered through abortion and the thousands killed just this past day? There’s an outcry against the guns and how they should all be banned and destroyed, but nothing is said about the instruments used in these heinous crimes against the most innocent who are murdered—literally torn apart or poisoned. And what are the populations of both the U.S. and Canada angry about? That the numbers of abortions might be cut back, angry because they can’t murder more babies.CG, Canada


Dear Fred: I saw your message on Rumble yesterday and was excited that it was received so well! People are looking for a savior, but it’s sad that only a few will recognize the right one. We are so blessed to have you for a truth-telling minister. I am hearing that some in my UCG group are recognizing the Pentecost resurrection but don’t know if our minister will teach it this year, because he knows it’s circulating around our congregation. I’ve actually given some of them your info!

It’s like a secret going around, but UCG ministers don’t preach it for fear of losing their paycheck. Like you said in one of your sermons! I feel so blessed that one of my friends “secretly” turned me on to your channel! It was many years ago now! One person came to me saying, “Did you know Pentecost pictures the harvest of the fruit fruits, separate from Trumpets?” I’m like, “Yeah, duh!” Funny, but not funny. Love.—LJ, Alabama
