I Appreciate the Sacrifices You Have Made – Thomas Everling
Apr 29, 2014 1801
Dear Dr. Ford.
My name is Thomas (Reid) Everling. 1 am 64 years old.
As of about a year ago the Lord began to impress on me the need to honor the true Sabbath (Sun down Friday to Sundown Saturday) I began to keep it alone as I did not know of anyone else who kept it. I’d clean my place and fix all foods needed for the duration and finished before sundown Friday. I then spent my time reading scriptures, praying and meditating on the goodness of God. In time I felt lonely in the process and felt I needed fellowship.
I thought that I remembered that there is a group which does keep the Sabbath and hence found them on the internet. I attended from July of 2013. Then I began to consider deeply the doctrine of Investigative Judgement erroneously derived from [tippy title=”Daniel 8:14″ class=”myclass” showheader=”true” href=”http://www.biblestudytools.com/tniv/daniel/8-14.html” width=”auto” height=”auto”]14 He said to me, “It will take %”2,300 evenings and mornings; then the sanctuary will be reconsecrated.”[/tippy]. I realized that this could not be correct given all of which Paul had preached about the total forgiveness of the repentant sinner who puts his faith in Christs’ sacrifice.
I began to try to reason with the brethren on this issue and was met with total resistance. I explained how that verse had been misinterpreted badly and must be corrected so that the whole denomination is not discredited due to this foul doctrine.
I then came across your video on Youtube with John Ankleburg which then led me to download your lectures (audio) online on the book of Daniel.
I want to tell you how I appreciate the sacrifices you have made to serve our Lord and for the wonderful contribution you have made to me and will also result in the blessing of this church.
I have been given the opportunity (by the leadership of this church- Laurel Heights, San Antonio, Texas USA) to work up a presentation for any and all who will listen. I am diligently working on it right now.
I have your old BLACK Daniel book but wonder if you have an AUDIO version of your NEW Daniel book with your present beliefs on the interpretation and correction about the investigative Judgement doctrine? I find it easier to cover more material via audio than reading although I’d like your new text book also. I thank God for you and would love to meet you someday.
