“Bombshell News—Coming…The Third Temple and Animal Sacrifices in Israel” is the title of a new StandingWatch program, presented by Evangelist Norbert Link. Here is a summary:

The mainstream media missed a shocking aspect of Israeli Minister of Foreign Affairs Yisrael Katz’s speech in front of the 74th session of the UN General Assembly, which has been described as an “absolute bombshell.” Was Katz, a direct descendant of Aaron the priest, advocating and announcing the prophesied building of the Third Temple and the commencement of animal sacrifices?

“Hat Gott SIE vor Ihrer Geburt gekannt?” is the title of this Sabbath’s German sermon, presented by Norbert Link. Title in English: “Did God Know You Before Your Birth?”

The German sermonette from last Sabbath by Robert Kintzi has also been posted.

“The Only Thing to Fear,” the sermonette present last Sabbath by Frank Bruno, is now posted. Here is a summary:

Obviously the world has become a much more dangerous place in recent years, and the blessings that we’ve enjoyed from God here in the United States and elsewhere will not endure in the face of outright disobedience of God’s Commands. As we move forward we are admonished to be watchful of the signs, and be spiritually prepared for the return of our savior, Jesus Christ. We are also told clearly not to fear as prophecy unfolds, but to focus on our relationship with God for clarity and comfort. In this Sermonette we will cover some of the scriptural foundation of this guidance so as to have a deeper understanding and appreciation for God’s plan.

“Sustaining our Light in Darkness,” the sermon presented last Sabbath by Robb Harris, is now posted. Here is a summary:

Christianity, as Jesus exemplified, is a path full of adversity.  A world of hatred surrounds and tries to suffocate any light of God’s Truth.  We must be resolute in our onward march in becoming perfect, especially when Satanic deceit is so encompassing in all aspects of life.  In that light, it is critical that we look to God’s Sabbath and Holy Days for the rest and recharge we are afforded by them.

“A Great Sound!” the sermonette presented during the Morning Services on the Feast of Trumpets by Dave Harris, is now posted. Here is a summary:

What does sound have to do with the return of Jesus Christ, and what meaning is there for Christians?

“Special,” the sermon presented during the Morning Services on the Feast of Trumpets by Eric Rank, is now posted. Here is a summary:

The Israelites, including the spiritual Israelites, are a special people to God called by Him for a special purpose. By following God’s commandments, we maintain this special relationship and guarantee for ourselves a fantastic future.

“Goals in This Life,” the Offertory presented during Afternoon Services on the Feast of Trumpets by Kalon Mitchell, is now posted.

“The Warning of the Watchmen,” the sermon presented during Afternoon Services on the Feast of Trumpets by Norbert Link, is now posted. Here is a summary:

The Feast of Trumpets reminds us of the Second Coming of Christ at the sound of the last trumpet and our resurrection, change and gathering with Him. But we also think of the terrible events which will occur prior to Christ’s Return. These events are announced symbolically many times in the Bible through the blowing of trumpets.

It is the responsibility of the Church of God to proclaim the coming Kingdom of God and God’s rule over the Earth. This includes warning mankind of imminent trouble. The prophet Ezekiel received from God a warning message for the House of Israel, but it was not meant for the Ezekiel of old and the ancient House of Israel. Rather, it is a warning for the modern House of Israel and for all peoples, as well as for God’s Church, which must proclaim this message today.
