Our newest booklet, “Obeying God Rather Than Man,” has been sent to graphic artist, Shelly Bruno, in preparation for printing. We expect to have this new booklet, written by Norbert Link, sent to the printer next week and published and posted to our website very soon. Translations of the booklet into German, Spanish and French have already begun.
“Will We Lose our Freedoms Forever?” is the title of a new StandingWatch program, presented by Evangelist Norbert Link. Here is a summary:
The Roman Catholic Church did not stand up to the Nazis during World War II, which has now been admitted by Germany’s Council of Catholic bishops in a “confession of guilt.” Today, our freedoms are once again threatened, including in the USA. Have we learned from history, or are we repeating the same mistakes by being silent in the face of adversity and danger? This program cites many troublesome examples and includes a frightening warning. It ends with an important announcement which you should not miss.
“Gott warnt uns und gibt uns zugleich Hoffnung!” is the title of this Sabbath’s new German sermon, presented by Norbert Link. Title in English: “God Warns Us and at the Same Time Gives Us Hope!”
“Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin” https://www.ewigengottes.de/2020/05/02/mene-mene-tekel-upharsin/ is the title of the German sermonette given last week by Johann Schell.
“Who to Trust?” the sermonette presented last Sabbath by Michael Link, is now posted. Here is a summary:
We have to be careful where we put our trust. The Bible gives us many examples where we should not put our complete trust and confidence. In contrast, we should always put our complete trust in our creator – God the Father, no matter what situation we find ourselves in.
“The Precious Blood of Jesus Christ” the sermon presented last Sabbath by Norbert Link, is now posted. Here is a summary:
Why did Jesus Christ die and shed His blood for us? Was there no other way to carry out God’s Plan? What did His death accomplish for us? Since when was it established that Christ would give His life for us? Are we truly thankful for His priceless Sacrifice, and do we show our thankfulness in our daily lives?
