To all our Wonderful Fellow Covenant Holders,
We are the fellowship who compiled the Statement of Principles – Anonymous 1.
We have discussed together the Guide and Standard document completed by the seven individuals chosen by lot and we as a united fellowship support the document created by the seven.
We love these words of Christ and we have found through our own experience that these words He has so mercifully given have provided us with kind and wise direction.
We are excited about this document being taken to the Lord for His correction and instruction.
We have every confidence that if we as a body of covenant holders approach the Lord in meekness and humility that Christ our King will, in His mercy, correct and instruct us all to our great benefit because He has done so already. Surely, He will do this because of His infinite love for everyone involved in this process. He knows the price He paid for every one of us and He desires our success.
This is such an exciting opportunity for us all as covenant holders to rise up together and receive the will of the Lord in this assignment that we may be approved of Him and receive more commandments and more revelations in their time.
We do not see any problem in all the differences of understanding of what should be written because we know that Christ knows what is right and what He wants. He knows what must be presented to the world so that His sheep will hear His voice.
He comprehends our lack of understanding and our blindness, all of us, and He has declared that He desires to heal us. We believe Him and desire to take Him at His word because we have seen enough to trust Him.
There is nothing to fear in approaching Him together and presenting our weak pitiful offering in meekness and humility trusting wholly upon Him to mend what we all have broken and to give us more light by correcting us.
If we honestly approach Him with this document in the same way the Brother of Jared did with the stones, acknowledging our weakness and our folly and our unworthiness before Him continually, He will respond with grace. The scriptures clearly testify of this. We believe what the scriptures say. He is an unchanging God and He is no respecter of persons.
What an exciting option to in unity ask Him to condescend in His mercy to correct us every one. There are no losers with this option because all in this option will receive the blessing of His greater light in equal portion by Him correcting us. There is no special or elite group in His eyes.
Everything He has given to this point He has freely given to all equally. His word in the scriptures, His word in the ten talks, His word in the Testimony of St John, His word in the conferences, His word in the answer and covenant, His covenant, and so forth; all has been given freely and equally to all for the benefit of all. Likewise, correction and instruction (more light) from His word concerning this document will be given freely to all for the benefit of all. No one loses. Everyone wins.
We heartily encourage everyone to approach the Lord together with this. Here is a marvelous opportunity for us all together to draw near unto Him now and He has promised that He will draw near unto us. If we are truly meek and humble He will correct and instruct us.
Let’s trust Him. We will not go away empty handed. We will go away rejoicing together and all glory and honor will rightly still belong to and be given to only our Lord for this will be another example of how He is doing His own work.
Again, we love all of you and always pray that God will bless every one of you with His best blessings and gifts.
