Jesus Christ, acting as the great High Priest of Jehovah and with full authority, says to
the anointed members, "This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached
all the 'vorld for a
witness; and then shall the end come." This is a part of God's Word, and shall not return
unto him void, but shall accomplish his. will. The commandment is so positive and emphatic
that no one of God's anointed can mistake its meaning. This kingdom gospel must be preached.
The only question is,
will have the privilege of doing
The anointed will do the preaching. God has commissioned them so to do, and they could
not be faithful by taking any other course. If you are one of the anointed you have the
spirit of the Lord and it is a delight for you to obey his commandments. Preaching this gospel
means proclaiming the good :-.1ews of the Kingdom in whatsoever manner the Lord has ar-
ranged. He has provided the radio as an entree. He has caused millions of books to be manu-
factured containing the message of the Kingdom, and he has put his spirit upon
witnesses that they may confidently do the work of putting this message in the hands of the
people. When the preaching of this gospel is done, then the end of Satan's organization will
come, and that will be the time of great rejoicing for the oppressed peoples of earth.
be a time of greater rejoicing on the part of the anointed, because they will witness the name
of Jehovah completely vindicated.
The preaching of this gospel brought reproach upon Jesus. A servant is not greater than
his master; therefore expect to be persecuted. Those who gain the victory must overcome the
world. Those who love God and are faithful will overcome. 'Vhen you find opposition, rejoice
and go right on telling the truth to others. Such is the privilege of each one of the anointed.
You are serving the people with that which is of far greater importance to them than all the
material wealth of the world. The groaning creation needs the message of the Kingdom. Know-
ing that you are doing right and that good will result, and that Jehovah's name will be vin-
dicated, never for one moment slack your hand. Faithfulness to the end will bring boundless joy.
Read this BULLETIN and then thank God that together we may work in his cause. Go and
preach this gospel of the Kingdom to the praise of J ehoYah, and according to his promise rich-
est blessings shall be your portion.
'Vith much love and best wishes,

The only reason for the existence of the So·

The church, the anointed of the Lord, are in·

will bring about the complete vindication of
God's name. Do we not have a wonderful priv.

Just think of it.
Here, at the end of the age, when "the wise shall
understand", the anointed may plan and en-
deavor to bring about a greater witness
name of Jehovah. This must thrill everyone
who is really in the truth.
"\Ve are the Lord's witnesses. We are not en.
gaged in a bookselling campaign; our purpose
in going from door
door is to leave a witness
that Jehovah is God. Needless to say, there are
very few who know that. But in going from
place to place, leaving here a little and there a
little of God's truth, we give the witness God
wants given. We are not booksellers; we are
preachers of this gospel; we place the literature
with the people who desire to know more about
this gospel, and they are glad to give in ex-
change an amount of money to cover the cost
of production and distribution. Some courts of
the land have charged the Lord's anointed with
engaging in commercial business on Sunday.
That is because they do not know that we are
engaged in the biggest, the greatest, the most
important work under the sun, the defense of
God's word and name! The Lord's people have
the right to preach the gospel o£ the Kingdon1
when, where and how he directs. The noticeable
thing about Peter, John and all the disciples
was their unceasing efforts to tell out the truth
in spite of all opposition. The rulers of that
time perceived that these were unlearned and
ungifted men, yet they did recognize that these
had walked with Jesus and, like him, were bold
in their stand for their rights to preach the

is one of the best days of the seven in the
week for that purpose, that's the day on which
we will make a special effort to tell someone,
somewhere, about the l(ingdom, regardless of
man-made ordinances.
We look forward to this coming year with
joy, because we know that the Lord is pleased
with our desire and efforts to give a greater
witness than last year. To keep us reminded of
the Lord's special commandn1ent at this par-
ticular time, Brother Rutherford has chosen as
our slogan, "This l(ingdom Gospel l\Iust Be

ford will be offered to the people for $2.40, in-
stead of the present offer of only six for $2.43.
The second thing is that four of our ten-cent
booklets will be offered for a quarter, and nine
of them for fifty cents, instead of the present
three for a quarter. Just one more thing, and
that is, a ten-percent discount will be taken off
the retail amount of any cmnbination totaling
more than $1.50. This means that if you make
up a combination which would amount to
discount, or
would be subtracted, so
that the party would receive it for only $1.80.

favors with the light at the present time.

should rejoice our hearts to have the priv-
ilege ,of offering these people some literature
that will bring them comfort and peace of mind .
. Some of the friends think that they should not
accept the last few pennies or dollars from the
people in exchange for the books. Remember
what the Bible says, "Man shall not live by
bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth
out of the mouth of God." In the 6th chapter of
Matthew the Lord says, "Is not the life more
than meat, and the body than raiment
matter how much anyone eats or how much he
has to wear, it will not bring him life. The only
way to get life, peace, and happiness is through
God's Word. Jesus said, "This is life eternal,
that they might know thee, the only true God,
and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent." We
have this message and should take it to the peo-
ple now. Undoubtedly the conditions are had in
this country, but that always proves to be the
best time to give the message of comfort to the
people. When they have plenty of money and
are prosperous they are self-satisfied; they do
not think of the Lord. When adversity comes,
then they are more inclined to turn their
thoughts and attention to the only true God
and we have something for them.
