Meredith's Words of Wisdom III

Roderick C. Meredith writes a 'semi-annual letter' to subscribers of Tomorrow's World who have not given any money to them. As far as I am aware those letters are not posted online. Once one does start to give money to them they start to send monthly 'Co-Worker letters' to that one.

This comes the Semi-Annual Letter of November 2, 2005 (emphasis in original):
many of you write asking about this Work, who is behind it, and what we believe. So in this letter I want to answer some of your questions....We are a continuation of the Work which the living Jesus Christ did through Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong. (p. 1).
He is here responding to questions about what this 'work' is. Notice what Meredith says in his response to such questions:
Looking back, it is now obvious that God gave Mr. Armstrong the "gift" of really understanding biblical prophecy more than any other person in modern times. (p. 1).
How on earth does he expect a false prophet who made numerous false prophecies to have any genuine understanding of biblical prophecy is beyond me. This statement hides these false prophecies from the unsuspecting reader. HWA said Christ would return in 1936, then at the end of WWII, then 1975, then within two decades of the publication of Mystery of the Ages (2005, the very year Meredith is writing this). He made over 200 false prophecies as can be clearly seen online. How much understanding do these errors show?

The Bible is very clear about what such errors mean: 'When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him." (Deuteronomy 18:22)

But Meredith, to his peril, ignores these important facts, and furthermore, seeks to hide it from those he is trying to recruit into his organization. He continues to assure the unsuspecting reader that they have understanding of what is happening:
we at Tomorrow's World can be specific in our explanation of end-time events because...God has given us genuine understanding of these things. (p. 2).
The record says otherwise. Meredith is merely another false prophet. We are commanded by God not to fear such people. Let us be free of them!
