Roderick C. Meredith, Presiding Evangelist of the Living Church of God
The world has certainly entered a very dynamic period with the election of a new President in the United States, financial shockwaves surging around the world and now the major automakers in the USA facing bankruptcy, which could affect more than a million jobs. The “time of Jacob’s trouble” appears to be on the horizon. However, in the midst of this widespread turmoil, God has opened a “major door” for the Tomorrow’s World program to go on CNBC, a cable network in Europe that will carry the Gospel and a warning message to 113 million subscribers from the UK to Russia, including one million subscribers in the nation of Israel and 3.5 million subscribers in the Gulf States. This is a very important opportunity. Please pray that God will guide us in going through this door.
Here in Charlotte, we have had a busy and eventful week. In addition to going on the new station in Europe, Mr. Wayne Pyle reports that Mr. Meredith’s program last weekend, “When Will Christ Return?” broke the 6,000-mark for the first time—with 6,256 responses! Mr. Ames’ program two weeks ago has now received 6,129 responses. Also this week, Mr. Rod King and Mr. Wallace Smith taped several programs for the new television season.
It is interesting to note that LCG is receiving more responses in a week than it has adult baptized members in the entire church.
LCG continues to go through the open doors and is working hard to proclaim the whole truth, the Christ’s complete gospel of the kingdom to this world as a witness.
