Rene Messier is preparing to fly to Kenya late next week to visit with our brethren and prospective members. Your prayers for his safety and success will be greatly appreciated.
“Are Your Loved Ones in Hell?,” is the title of a new StandingWatch program presented by Evangelist Norbert Link. Here is a summary:
In a recent TV program, Pat Robertson said that the wicked are suffering in hell fire, and that even Samuel was in the darkness of hell at the time of King Saul. But is this true? Where does the concept of an ever-burning hell come from? What does the Bible mean when it speaks of the lake of fire where the wicked would be cast into? And what is the outer darkness where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth?
“No More Justice in the Land?,” is the title of another new StandingWatch program presented by Evangelist Norbert Link, which will be posted shortly. Here is a summary
Have we reached the prophesied time when we are searching for justice, without finding any? Why this terrible increase of criminal prosecutions of noncriminal acts and innocent people, and why the great erosion of the principle that one must have criminal intent in order to commit a crime? Do Scriptures in Isaiah, Jeremiah and Micah, especially challenging the religious and political leadership of ancient Israel and Judah, have any relevance for us today?
“Das Hohelied Salomos,” is the title of this week’s new German sermon. This sermon discusses the Song of Solomon.
“Verstehen Sie das Evangelium?,” is the title of the new German AufPostenStehen program which also includes Michael Link’s newly added German introduction and conclusion (as also is being done in the English StandingWatch programs). It’s title in English: “Do You Understand the Gospel?” This presentation promotes our new printed German booklet on the Gospel of the Kingdom of God.
Our new German booklet on the Book of Revelation, “DIE MYSTERIEN IM BUCH DER OFFENBARUNG!,” has been posted on our German Website, “AufPostenStehen.”
A new German letter was sent to all German speaking members and co-workers and those who are interested in CEG. In the letter an update was given on activities in the German Work–included raising the potential of conducting Sabbath services in a hotel each week (so far, we are meeting there twice a month); information about further printings and postings of German booklets and the activity schedule for the Feast were presented (the purchase of additional translation equipment, due to anticipated climbing attendance at the Feast has become a necessity); and activities in the English-speaking Work reported. We also posted information on our Feast site in the Black Forest on our German Website.
The July Member/Co-Worker Letter, written by Mr. Brian Gale, is now posted.
The final text of our new English booklet, “The Ten Revivals of the Roman Empire,” has been forwarded to our graphics designer, Shelly Bruno, for completion.
