A new StandingWatch program was posted on the Web, titled, “Could Jesus Return Tonight?” A strong minority of Americans believes that we are living in the End Times, while 52 percent disagree. Some believe and teach that Jesus could come back tonight, while others say that He won’t return at all. What does the Bible tell us?
A new German sermon was posted on the Web, titled, “Das Opfer Jesu Christi” (“The Sacrifice of Jesus Christ”).
Our new German booklet, “Jesus Christus—Ein Grosses Geheimnis” (“Jesus Christ—A Great Mystery”), was posted on the Web.

The following sets forth a selection of recipes for the Days of Unleavened Bread:
SOFT UNLEAVENED BREAD
1-1/2 c. unbleached white flour
1-1/2 c. whole wheat or rye flour
1/4 c. flaxseed meal (optional)
1/2 t. salt
1/3 c. oil
Mix oil and eggs together then add to flour and salt. Add enough water to make it easy to pour.
Pour into well-greased large cookie sheet with edges. Bake in preheated 450 F oven for 15 to 20 min
or until slightly golden brown.
Cut into rectangles when cooled. Good for sandwiches and toast because it is somewhat soft.
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup butter/oil
3 cups flour
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. almond extract
1 small bag almonds, sliced
Mix sugar, eggs and 1 cup flour and butter. Mix well. Add remaining ingredients. Pour (mash) into 2 bread pans (greased and floured). Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Reminds one of a solid brick. Can be cut and toasted.
2 1/8 cups flour
1 1/4 cups ground almonds
3/4 cup butter
pinch of salt
3 tsp. granulated sugar
1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
Confectioners’ sugar for rolling Kipferls in.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the salt and the flour. Cut in the butter, and mix in with your hands. Add the confectioners’ sugar, the egg, the granulated sugar, and the ground almonds to the flour mixture. Place the dough in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Remove dough from refrigerator, pinch off about an inch and form into a crescent shape. Place the kipferl on a baking tray, leave them in the refrigerator for 15 minutes. Bake at 400 degrees F for 10 to 15 minutes. When done (slightly brown), remove carefully from the tray. While still warm, roll the kipferl in the confectioners’ sugar.
The vanilla kipferls originated in Austria, and they are also very popular in Switzerland and Germany. The kipferl becomes even yummier after 2 to 3 days….but only for those who can resist long enough. If desired, the two ends of the kipferl can be dipped in warm chocolate and then left to cool.
