“Christ’s New Commandment” is the title of the new StandingWatch program presented by Evangelist Norbert Link. Here is a summary: Did Christ come to replace the Ten Commandments with a “new” commandment? What IS the new commandment, and most importantly, how can we fulfill it?
Another StandingWatch program has been recorded and will be posted next week. It is titled, “One Nation Under What God?”
All our StandingWatch programs are also broadcast on numerous radio stations. For a complete schedule and list of stations, please go to www.standingwatch.org and view “StandingWatch Radio.”

The 2014 Church Conference will begin Friday, March 28th, and continue through Tuesday, April 1st, in San Diego, California. We contemplate discussing various topics, including, but not limited to, doctrinal and administrative differences between our organizations and other Sabbath-keeping COG groups; the future of the Work in the USA, Canada, the UK and German- and French-speaking areas, including Feast of Tabernacles plans for 2014 and 2015; our Internet and radio presence; writing and printing of new booklets, as well as reprints; and the confirmation of our understanding of certain doctrinal matters, including John 7:37-39 and Matthew 5:19. Your prayers for a successful Conference and the revaluation of God’s Will are greatly appreciated.
Brian and Jill Gale will stay following the Conference, and Mr. Gale will conduct Passover services in Ramona, California. Rene and Delia Messier will be in Oregon for Passover and the beginning of Unleavened Bread. Passover Services will be conducted by the ministry in Fort Collins, Colorado, as well.
We are requesting your ongoing URGENT prayers for a German Feast of Tabernacles site for 2014. All arrangements had been made with an hotel in the Black Forest, but we are now being informed that due to financial difficulties and lack of investors, the hotel ceased operation and cancelled all contracts with their guests. We are looking for a new Feast site in Germany, but this search proves very difficult and extremely time-consuming. One possibility has just opened up in Berlin and is being investigated. Another more remote possibility in Eltville is also being looked at (This is the location where the Church kept the Spring Festival many years ago.). Please pray for God’s intervention and His direction in the matter.
“Christi Gleichnisse vom Reich Gottes, Teil 3,” is the title of this week’s new German sermon. In this final installment of the series about the parables of Jesus Christ, Norbert Link addresses several parables in the book of Luke. Title in English: “Christ’s Parables of the Kingdom of God, Part 3.”
A new Global Trailer has been presented by Pastor Brian Gale (United Kingdom) in which he brings out highlights from our booklet, “Do We Have an Immortal Soul?” These programs with Pastors Rene Messier (Canada) and Brian Gale (UK) are being shown with intriguing graphics compiled and included by Johanna Link. Please make an effort to watch these meaningful presentations.
