This Week In The News

Current Events

by Norbert Link

We begin with alarming plans in the USA to automatically register young men (and perhaps women) for the draft and the fear that America and NATO are preparing for global war, perhaps even to be fought with nuclear weapons. In this context, please view our new StandingWatch program, titled, “America Prepares for the Draft and Global War.”

We speak on the transfer of NATO headquarters to Germany and report on further developments pertaining to the Russia-Ukraine war and a new war pact between Russia and North Korea, and we speak on events regarding Israel and Gibraltar. We also address ISIS threats against the UEFA soccer tournament (“the European Cup”) in Germany.

We discuss Joe Biden’s condition which seems to make him “unfit for office” and the desperate attempts of the White House and the media to downplay or flatly deny Biden’s embarrassing problems; and we address an appalling letter by the left-wing Connecticut Bar Association warning lawyers about criticizing proceedings against Trump; and conclude with the expected decision by the weaponized Justice Department not to prosecute indicted AG Garland.

Throughout this section, we have underlined pertinent statements in the quoted articles, for the convenience and quick overview of the reader.

Our Near Horizon

We might think of things being on the near horizon—that is, that something will almost certainly happen or be done quite soon. The word horizon is defined by most dictionaries as the place in the distance where the earth and sky seem to meet.

Metaphorically, new horizons may refer to fresh starts, greater understanding or different goals. Being drawn into the truth of God and having our minds opened to understand the Bible has given us vision from God’s perspective and certainly, vastly new horizons!

How are we handling the horizon of future events? Jesus revealed signs which would take place leading to His return and the end of this age, and He specifically said, “‘See I have told you beforehand’” (Matthew 24:25).

Jesus went on to say that we should “watch” and “be ready” as the prophetic horizon of end time events becomes the near horizon of our lives!

This world is on the edge of a precipice—the brink of a dangerous and disastrous situation, and it will fall! This is the time of the end of the age! Have we become comfortable and complacent with the way things are? Do we truly understand the gravity of our time. We are admonished:

Q&A

Why do you keep stressing the need for endurance? (Part 1)

This is a good question, and it is an important issue that needs attention as it can have eternal consequences when it is not rightly understood.   It can be misleading for those who believe the concept that “once saved, always saved” is biblical.

One commentator, promulgating this erroneous concept states that, “If salvation can be lost, this requires a reversal of regeneration. This means the born again must become unborn again. And if they subsequently repent, then they must become born again again. Can a man also be born again again again? Where does it end? Is regeneration really so transient?”

The simple basic flaw in this argument is that its supporters believe that they are born again now.   It is also often the case that such a belief goes hand in hand with going to heaven at death.

The true Church of God has consistently taught that we are begotten in this life and will be born again at the resurrection.
