Moving Towards Marxist Morality

Is the world moving more towards Marxist morality? What is Marxist morality? How does it differ from Biblical morality? Dennis Prager wrote about how what he calls “the left” have adopted aspects of Marxist morality. Marxist morality is based on certain interpretations of writings of Karl Marx and Vladimir Lenin. Has the USA seen a shift towards socialism in the past 70 years according to Michael Snyder? Is the USA becoming more accepting of socialism according to Harvard? Does the Bible give reasons why? What did the Apostle Paul warn about the last days? Was there a generation prophesied by Jesus and the Book of Proverbs to have a morality similar to those of the Marxists? Will this end up with totalitarian control? Will most people go along with the ‘morality’ of the Beast? What does the Bible say will happen with those that worship the image of the Beast or take the mark of the Beast? Dr. Thiel addresses these topics.

Here is a link to the sermonette video: Moving Towards Marxist Morality.

Sermon: The Books of the Old Testament

Saturday, September 26th, 2020


COGwriter

The Continuing Church of God is pleased to announce this sermon from its ContinuingCOG channel:

1:11:34

The Books of the Old Testament

What are the Books of the Old Testament? Were they prophesied to be preserved? Approximately when were they written? What language(s) was the Old Testament written in ? Could Moses have written the five books (called the Pentateuch or Torah) ascribed to him? Was there any relationship between ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics and proto-Hebrew? What about proto-Phoencian or proto-Canaanite alphabet? Was any part of the Old Testament written in Aramaic or Greek? Has Dr. Doug Petrovich claimed that Hebrew was the oldest alphabetical/proto-consonantal writing, reaching back to c. 1842 B.C.E. according to the Sinai 377 rock inscription? Could the Renfrsheri Stele known, as Sinai 115, place the Hebrews in Egypt then? Or 1840 B.C.E. ? What are the books of the Hebrew Bible according to the Jewish Encyclopedia of 1906 and the first century historian Josephus? Did Church of God leader Melito of Sardis go to Judea/Palestine, refer to the Hebrews scriptures as the Old Testament, and write what the books were? Did Melito or Jesus include any of the so-called deuterocanonical books as scripture? Do the Dead Sea Scrolls provide support for the Masoretic Text for Isaiah and Leviticus? Does the Continuing Church of God use the same Old Testament books as the early Christians? Dr. Thiel addresses these issues and more.

Here is a link to the sermon: The Books of the Old Testament.

PCG: Democrats Quietly Preparing for Post-Election Violence; Rabobank: Is The Era Of American Global Hegemony Coming To An End

Monday, September 21st, 2020


‘George Floyd’ Riot aftermath (Lorie Shaull)

COGwriter

Will we see more protests, arrests, and riots across the USA after the November election?

Yes.

Some claim that Donald Trump may claim victory on election night and/or the next day, then after mailed ballots are counted which claim he lost, that this will get Republican supporters to riot. Some say a Donald Trump victory will get Democratic supporters to riot.

PCG put out the following:

Democrats Quietly Preparing for Post-Election Violence

September 21, 2020

It is almost a foregone conclusion that there will be riots if Donald Trump is reelected as president of the United States. A coalition of progressives has been meeting to “game out” what happens if Joe Biden doesn’t win by a landslide. On September 8, the Daily Beast reported that a coalition dubbed the Democracy Defense Nerve Center met earlier this month to pore over a report titled “Preventing a Disrupted Presidential Election and Transition.” But this report was not truly about making sure that elections are free and fair.

The Democracy Defense Nerve Center held “war games,” with John Podesta, former chairman of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, playing Biden. Three of the four scenarios enacted during these political war games ended in violence. The only scenario that ended peacefully was a landslide victory for Biden—ironic for a report alleging that Mr. Trump is the one who wants to steal the election. But the fact that politicians like Podesta are putting these scenarios forward as realistic possibilities show that the nation may be on the verge of a constitutional crisis and full-scale civil war.

Game #1: The first war game described in “Preventing a Disrupted Presidential Election and Transition” predicts no clear winner on election night. That means a 269:269 electoral college tie, or a Trump victory so slim that Biden refuses to concede until every mail-in ballot is counted. Analysts have called this a “red mirage” scenario, where Republicans appear to win on November 3, but Democrats “win” after mail-in ballots are harvested. …

Game #2: The second war game predicts a clear Biden victory on election night. In this scenario, President Trump leaves office and there are no protests.

Game #3: The third war game predicts a repeat of the 2016 presidential election, where Donald Trump wins the electoral college but loses the popular vote.

The Transition Integrity Project predicts widespread rioting in this scenario. …

Game #4: The fourth war game predicts a Biden victory, but one where he narrowly wins with less than 51 percent of the popular vote. The Transition Integrity Project predicts that the Trump campaign may challenge the validity of mail-in ballots in this scenario. But Biden will organize protests across the country that will result in Republicans backing down and allowing him to take charge. …

The clash between the two ideologies is leading to a violent revolution. https://www.thetrumpet.com/22906-democrats-quietly-preparing-for-post-election-violence

The above article did not cover protests that are expected because of the Supreme Court opening–and those are expected before the November election. The ‘George Floyd’ protests and riots may pale in comparison to what may unfold in the USA later in 2020 and beyond. I expect unrest in the UK as well related to Brexit and other matters.

As far as Donald Trump goes, here is something I warned about here in September 2016:

For years I have warned that more civil unrest was coming to the USA. We have already seen a re-emergence of civil unrest already in 2015 and 2016.

That does not mean that I agree that globalists will necessarily trigger it etc. But the media certainly has fanned the flames in the past and I expect them to do more such fanning in the future if Donald Trump were to win. (Thiel B. ‘Chaos will erupt across America in less than 100 days… no matter who wins the election’. COGwriter, September 5, 2016)

Plus, here is something related to that in my book Donald Trump and America’s Apocalypse:

For one prophetic example, on September 5, 2016, I warned that the media would fan the flames for civil unrest if Donald Trump were elected. The morning after his election I warned that we would see civil unrest. Less than 24 hours later, tens of thousands, of various backgrounds, were protesting (Blau M, et al. Protesters target Trump buildings in massive street rallies. CNN, November 10, 2016 ) and certain ones in the media helped fan those flames of those protests. Expect more protests against Donald Trump. (Thiel B. Donald Trump and America’s Apocalypse. Nazarene Books, 2017, pp. 15-16)

Donald Trump has been a polarizing figure and has offended many including minorities and Muslims. Expect civil unrest and rioting. The Bible prophesies “There shall be terror within” (Deuteronomy 32:25). (Thiel B. Donald Trump and America’s Apocalypse. Nazarene Books, 2017, p. 86)

That has happened.

Now consider that Jesus said:

4 “Take heed that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. 6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. (Matthew 24:4-8)

We are in the ‘beginning of sorrows.’ The first horseman of the Apocalypse spreading a false interfaith and ecumenical gospel has been becoming more and more prominent on the world scene the past several years. They claim Jesus is Christ, but do not truly act like it, and they are deceiving many.

Jesus said this would be followed by wars and rumors of war.

We could be at or near the time of the ride of the red horseman of the apocalypse.


Red Horseman of War

Notice what Jesus had the Apostle John record:

3 When He opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, “Come and see.” 4 Another horse, fiery red, went out. And it was granted to the one who sat on it to take peace from the earth, and that people should kill one another; and there was given to him a great sword. (Revelation 6:3-4)

The specter of war is haunting the world right now. And though we expect, after conflict, to see temporary peace in places like the Middle East (cf. Daniel 9:27; see also The ‘Peace Deal’ of Daniel 9:27), many are preparing for war.

Here is number 7 from my article 20 items to prophetically watch in 2020:

7. Strife and the Red Horse of War

Notice the following:

3 When He opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, “Come and see.” 4 Another horse, fiery red, went out. And it was granted to the one who sat on it to take peace from the earth, and that people should kill one another; and there was given to him a great sword. (Revelation 6:3-4)

Somewhat paralleling the ride of the second horseman of Revelation 6:3-4, Jesus warned about wars and disturbances:

6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. (Matthew 24:6-7a)

“Nation … against nation” is literally “ethnos … against ethnos” in the original Greek. Notice how the Orthodox Jewish Bible translates the first half of Matthew 24:7:

For there will be an intifada of ethnic group against ethnic group, …

We expect to see more wars, rumors of war, and civil unrest.

When I heard a black woman scream out “Shoot all the white folks” on the news several months ago, her statement ended up bringing the “intifada of ethnic group against ethnic group” translation of Matthew 24:7 to mind. “Intifada” means rebellion or uprising, or more properly, it comes from the Arabic intifāḍah meaning “shaking off.” We have seen rebellion and a desire to shake off various governmental practices in these recent protests and riots.

Internal dissension is leading more and more in the world to conclude that the USA is on its way out as the global leader.

Notice the following:

Rabobank: Is The Era Of American Global Hegemony Coming To An End

September 21, 2020

Friday saw the death of US Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg at 87. She was a true titan of the law, and leaves a critical (until now very liberal) Supreme Court seat vacant at a time when the US is bitterly divided on all issues. President Trump insists on pressing ahead with a hearing on a new appointment before the election – just as President Obama did before him when the (very conservative) justice Scalia died; Senate Republicans are saying they will proceed, which they wouldn’t in 2016; and the Democrats insist on not proceeding until after the election, which they didn’t in 2016. So business as usual.

However, this makes the US election even more important and heated than it already was – and harder to call. … the era of American global hegemony is close to a humiliating end, akin to the British at Suez. …

As all this unfolds, Europe keeps on Europe-ing. …

It’s hard work being a hegemon. Imagine if Europe were one again. https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/rabobank-era-american-global-hegemony-coming-end

Well, as regular readers of this page are aware, it is not necessary to imagine if Europe were a hegemon again, because the Bible shows that it will be.

The Book of Revelation is quite clear that a European Beast power, with the aid of a religious figure called the ‘false prophet’ (called the Antichrist elsewhere in scripture) will arise and dominate the world both economically and militarily for a time (cf. Revelation 13 and 18).

Notice that theBible tells of a warring leader that will arise in Europe:

1 Then I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name. 2 Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority. 3 And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast. 4 So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?” (Revelation 13:1-4)

That sea, according to Daniel, is the “Great Sea” (Daniel 7:2-8), further identified by other scriptures to be what we now call the Mediterranean Sea (Numbers 34:6-7; Joshua 1:4; 9:1; 23:4; Ezekiel 47:13-16). We also have a BNP video Can You Prove that the Beast to Come is European?

Once this Beast decides to make massive war, at first he will be successful.

First, he will likely quell unrest in Europe–yes it is not just the USA and UK that will have unrest.

Then, he will eventually turn against the USA and its Anglo-Saxon descended allies:

24 His power shall be mighty, but not by his own power;
He shall destroy fearfully,
And shall prosper and thrive;
He shall destroy the mighty, and also the holy people.

25 “Through his cunning
He shall cause deceit to prosper under his rule;
And he shall exalt himself in his heart.
He shall destroy many in their prosperity. (Daniel 8:24-25)

39 Thus he shall act against the strongest fortresses with a foreign god, which he shall acknowledge, and advance its glory; and he shall cause them to rule over many, and divide the land for gain. (Daniel 11:39)

This Beast leader, also called the King of the North, will then eliminate lands now dominated by Islam:

40 “At the time of the end the king of the South shall attack him; and the king of the North shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter the countries, overwhelm them, and pass through. 41 He shall also enter the Glorious Land, and many countries shall be overthrown; but these shall escape from his hand: Edom, Moab, and the prominent people of Ammon. 42 He shall stretch out his hand against the countries, and the land of Egypt shall not escape. 43 He shall have power over the treasures of gold and silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt; also the Libyans and Ethiopians shall follow at his heels. (Daniel 11:40-43)

He will be successful militarily for a time. This is some of what to expect with a European hegemon.

Plus totalitarianism that the Beast’s false prophet associate will be involved in as well:

12 And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. 13 He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. 14 And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. 15 He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. 16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666. (Revelation 13:12-18)

But this will not last:

14 These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful. (Revelation 17:14)

44 And in the days of these kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed; and the kingdom shall not be left to other people; it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever. (Daniel 2:44)

8 The nations were angry, and Your wrath has come,
And the time of the dead, that they should be judged,
And that You should reward Your servants the prophets and the saints,
And those who fear Your name, small and great,
And should destroy those who destroy the earth. (Revelation 11:18)

15 Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. 16 And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written:

KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.

17 Then I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in the midst of heaven, “Come and gather together for the supper of the great God, 18 that you may eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, both small and great.”

19 And I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army. 20 Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone. 21 And the rest were killed with the sword which proceeded from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse. And all the birds were filled with their flesh. (Revelation 19:15-21)

That being said, yes, we are in the process of seeing riots and the end of USA hegemony.

And yes, it will be replaced by a European hegemon.

But finally, yes, Jesus will return and put an end to the errors of humanity and establish the Kingdom of God.

Pray for God’s kingdom to come (Matthew 6:10).

The Feast of Trumpets 2020: Christian vs. Jewish Views on the Feast of Trumpets (in English and Spanish)

Blowing of a Shofar

COGwriter

The Feast of Trumpets runs from sunset September 18th until sunset September 19th of 2020. Here is an offertory sermonette:

14:03

On the first day of the seventh month of the biblical calendar, it is a day of blowing the trumpets. Also a special offering was taken up then. What did Jesus say about your treasure, your needs, and worry? What will happen to currencies like the British pound and US dollar? Why might people throw their gold and silver into the streets? Dr. Thiel goes over many scriptures and more in this offertory for the Feast of Trumpets. Offerings can be mailed to the Continuing Church of God, 1036 W. Grand Avenue, Grover Beach, CA 93433. Offerings can also be given online via PayPal–check out: https://www.ccog.org/donations/

Here is a link to the offertory: Trumpets Offertory: Your treasure and the Day of the Lord.

Here is a Spanish language version:

11:13 

Ofertorio de Trompeta: su papel en la llegada del Reino de Dios

Jesús regresará con la séptima y última trompeta. Enseñó que los cristianos deben orar para que venga el reino de Dios. ¿Cuándo vendrá ese Reino? ¿No es necesario que se cumplan mejor Mateo 24:14 y Romanos 11:25? ¿Qué hay de tu parte en la preparación de la novia? ¿Encontrará Jesús fe en la tierra? ¿No apoyarán la mayoría de los cristianos la obra de Filadelfia que Dios quiere que se apoye? El Dr. Thiel aborda estos temas y más en este mensaje del ofertorio.

Here is a link to the offertory translated into Spanish: Ofertorio de Trompeta: su papel en la llegada del Reino de Dios.

Christian vs. Jewish Views on the Feast of Trumpets

What are Christian views of the Feast of Trumpets? Should it be called Rosh Hashana like the Jews began to do centuries after God had His Holy Days listed in Leviticus 23? Jews claim this day was also the 6th day of creation when Adam was made–does the Bible support or confirm this? When is the seventh month of the biblical calendar? What is Tishri/Tishrei/Ethanim? Should the Jewish year that runs from 19 September 2020 through September 7, 2021 be more like 5990 or 5781 as the Jews claim? Is there any connection to the Book of Life like the Jews claim? The Jews also claim that this Holy Day has to do with repentance and judgment–does the New Testament agree? Does the Feast of Trumpets have any connection to the seven trumpets of Revelation? What about a possible connection between the last trumpet and the return of Jesus? Should Christians draw comfort from observing this festival? What have different Church of God writers (like George Kackos and Herbert W. Armstrong) written is the meaning of the Feast of Trumpets? What about Ambrose of Milan? Dr. Thiel addresses these matters and more (plus also attempts to blow a ram’s horn known as a shofar as well as a silver trumpet known as a chatsotserah).

Here is a link to the sermon: Christian vs. Jewish Views on the Feast of Trumpets.

Here is that sermon in Spanish:

1:15:53

Trompetas y el Regreso de Jesús

El Antiguo Testamento menciona un festival para el toque de trompetas. El Libro de Apocalipsis menciona el toque de siete trompetas. ¿Podría haber algún tipo de conexión? ¿Qué representa el toque de trompetas? ¿Qué pasa con el papel de vigilante? ¿Cuándo regresará Jesús? ¿Regresará Jesús en la Fiesta de las Trompetas? ¿Tienen los raptores antes de la tribulación su orden fuera de la secuencia bíblica? ¿Qué significa el nombre Rosh Hashaná? ¿Deben los cristianos guardar la fiesta de las trompetas? ¿Cuándo es el primer mes? ¿Cuándo es el séptimo mes? ¿Qué sucede en la apertura del quinto, sexto y séptimo sellos? ¿Qué pasa con las siete últimas plagas? El Dr. Thiel aborda estos problemas y también hace algunas especulaciones que espera afinar en el futuro.

Here is a link to the sermon translated into Spanish: Trompetas y el Regreso de Jesús.

For those who would like two services, here is a link to a sermonette and another sermon:


25:03

Jewish Year 5779 or 5990?

According to the Jewish ‘Seder Olam Rabbah’ the period from sunset 9 September 2018 to 29 September 2019 is the year 5779 Anno Mundi (age of the world). However, the Jewish Encyclopedia, secular scholars, and modern Jewish experts have all claimed that the count is off between 164 to 200 plus years. Are we closer to the year 5990 than 5779 since Adam and Eve left the Garden of Eden? Why would the Seder Olam be off by so much? Does any of this have anything to do with deceit and pointing to the false ‘messiah’ Simon Bar Kochba? Was the Messiah supposed to come after 4000 or 6000 years? Does Daniel 9:26 clearly point to Jesus? Dr. Thiel refers to Jewish accepted and other sources to answer these questions? An article of related interest it available titled Does God Have a 6,000 Year Plan? What Year Does the 6,000 Years End?

Here is a link to the sermonette video: Jewish Year 5779 or 5990?

1:15:59

Trumpets and Jesus’ Return

The Old Testament mentions a festival for the blowing of trumpets. The Book of Revelation mentions the blowing of seven trumpets. Could there be some type of connection? What does the blowing of trumpets represent? What about the watchman role? When will Jesus return? Will Jesus return on the Feast of Trumpets? Do pretribulation rapturists have their order out-of-biblical sequence? What does the name Rosh Hashana mean? Should Christians keep the Feast of Trumpet? When is the first month? When is the seventh month? What happens at the opening of the fifth, sixth, and seventh seals? What about the seven last plagues. Dr. Thiel addresses these issues and also makes some speculations that he expects to fine tune in the future.

Here is a link to the sermon: Trumpets and Jesus’ Return.

The Feast of Trumpets is one God’s Feasts per Leviticus 23.

COG-UK: Where is Elijah?

Friday, September 18th, 2020


Elijah in the wilderness

COGwriter

A past edition of Outreach, put out by the Churches of God, UK, had the following:

Where Is Elijah?

If Jesus is to return any time soon, then ‘Elijah’, according to some teachers, should be alive and kicking somewhere on earth…

John the Baptist reflected the life-style of the first Elijah—rough-hewn, godly, dwelling in the desert. He had the same message, to confront ungodliness, ‘…to turn many of the sons of Israel to the Lord their God’ (v.16)—a mission he surely accomplished Matthew 3:5-6). A people prepared for the message of Jesus.

But ‘Elijah’ will also return ’…before the coming of the great and dreadful day of Jehovah’ (Malachi: 4:5). That day—the great ‘Day of the Lord’—is ushered in by the returning Jesus who said ‘…I will come again’. Elijah’s message will be a call to repentance, a return by mankind to the true God—a call heard worldwide. John, in Revelation, speaks of ‘…my two witnesses’ (ch 11:3ff), and their mission does indeed ‘prepare the way of the Lord’. They reflect both the work of both Elijah [eg drought] and Moses [eg plagues].

It will be an awesome time of tribulation upon those who continue unrepentant, unheeding of the call to turn to God. Their mission will end at the return of Jesus, when they will be glorified with Him, together with the rest of the ’firstfruits harvest’ (Revelation 11:3-12).

The above group has tended to maintain an affiliation with COGOM. COGOM has tended to take more of a hands off view on prophecy (and, in my view, misworded some of the above–Jesus ushers in the Day of the Lord, but He does this about a year before He returns).

Although people like the discredited Ron Weinland (see Concerns About Ronald Weinland’s Church of God-Preparing for the Kingdom of God) and David Pack (see Why Not the Restored Church of God?) have claimed to be ‘Elijah,’ neither of them are.

Yet, the Bible does show that there will be an ‘Elijah’ who is alive before Jesus returns and that it is likely that he will be one of the two witnesses. And as Jesus is likely to return within the next couple of decades, it is reasonable to consider that he must be alive today.

Could he be one who has restored information on church history, doctrine, prophecy, and the reason that God created anything? Could he be one reaching people around the world with the Gospel of the Kingdom of God in nearly 100 different languages? Or has God not chosen to have him do much at this stage?

Those with a WCG background might find the following quote from Herbert W. Armstrong of some assistance here as he wrote:

Those called into the Church were called not merely for salvation and eternal life, but to learn the way of God’s government and develop the divine character during this mortal life in the Church age …

Also Malachi 4:5-6 pictures the Elijah to come at the very end of the Church age (Mystery of the Ages. 1985, pp. 201, 349).

And when was the “Church age” supposed to end according to Herbert Armstrong’s old church? Notice:

God has set before us an open door and no MAN can shut it. God can shut it, and He will when the work is finished and the Philadelphia Church goes to a place of safety. …The Laodicean Church is not going to be worthy to escape to a place of safety. When it is too late, they will find that the Church of Philadelphia has gone to safety (What Is the “LAODICEAN CHURCH”? Good News August 1959 Vol. VIII, Number 8).

Now since the Church age has not ended, and the Day of the Lord has not yet come, then it follows that Elijah was to come on the scene publicly after this was written. His restoring of “all things” means that he is to be restoring information that the true Church of God once understood, but later must have lost or misunderstood

The problem is that just as many would not hear Elijah’s or John the Baptist’s messages, relatively few will pay much attention to the end time Elijah as well.

BibleNewsProphecy: Does Pope Francis misunderstand the purpose of creation? Do you?

Sunday, September 13th, 2020

COGwriter

The Continuing Church of God (CCOG) is pleased to announce the following video on our Bible News Prophecy YouTube channel:

11:34

Does Pope Francis misunderstand the purpose for creation? Do you?

Why did God create anything? At the 6th World Day of Prayer for Creation, Pope Francis stated, “The world was made to communicate the glory of God.” Is that correct? Is God an egotist that made humans and the rest of the creation to extol His glory? Is, as Thomas Aquinas explained and the Lutherans teach, the Beatific Vision the ultimate goal of human existence after physical death? Did a version of the Beatific Vision come from the pagan Greek philosopher Plato? Do the Muslims, Hindus, and Buddhists teach a version of it? Were all things created for Jesus? If so, were humans created to simply look at Jesus for all eternity? Why did God made you? Did God make humans so that they could develop their own unique talents in this age so that they would be able to give love in such a way as to make eternity better for themselves and others? Does the Bible reveal the mysteries of why God created anything and why He made people? Dr. Thiel address these issues and more.

Sermon: Fall Holy Days for Christians

Saturday, September 12th, 2020


COGwriter

The Continuing Church of God is pleased to announce this sermon on its ContinuingCOG channel:

1:11:17

Fall Holy Days for Christians

Are there holy days or festivals that occur in or near the Fall, autumn of the year, that Christians should observe? Which days did Jesus and the Apostle Paul keep? Does the New Testament show that any of the Fall holy days were kept? Did early Christians keep the Feast of Trumpets, Day of Atonement, Feast of Tabernacles, and the Last Great Day? What about Polycarp, Melito, and Polycrates? What about Methodius of Olympus? What happened with the sun-god worshiping Emperor Constantine? Did early Christians keep Christmas, Halloween, All Saints Day, or All Souls Day? Is it wrong to mix pagan ceremonial practices with biblical ones? Did John Chrysostom denounce those keeping the Fall holy days in the late 4th century? What about Jerome and the Nazarene? Were the holy days kept during the Middle Ages? What do the holy days listed in Leviticus 23 have to do with Jesus and God’s plan of salvation? What about tradition? What did Ellen White and Samuel Bacchiochi teach about the holy days? What about Church of God leaders? What do the biblical holy days help teach Christians?

BibleNewsProphecy: Serapion of Antioch: A COG Christian?

Sunday, September 6th, 2020

COGwriter

The Continuing Church of God (CCOG) is pleased to announce the following video on our Bible News Prophecy YouTube channel:

19:06

The Greco-Roman-Protestants tend to teach that Serapion, Bishop/Pastor of Antioch (c. 190-211) was a true and faithful Christian. Serapion warned against Montanism, the rise of a lying confederacy, and the falsely named ‘Gospel of Peter.’ He was in fellowship with Quartodeciman Church of God leaders, such as Apolinarius of Hierapolis of Asia Minor. Did he denounce those who held a doctrine of Antichrist? Did he denounce the anti-Sabbatarian Marcion of Pontus, Marcianus, and the Doetae? Would he have kept Passover on the 14th of Nisan/Abib and NOT ‘Easter Sunday’ like Alexander of Aelia Capitolina and Clement of Alexandria promoted? Did he teach that the books of the Bible had been “handed down to us”? Could Serapion have had true apostolic succession? Although he is on the succession list of the Syriac and Eastern Orthodox of Antioch lists, did he hold Church of God (COG) or Greco-Roman doctrines? Dr. Thiel addresses these issues and more.

Sermon: Let’s Talk About the Bible

Saturday, September 5th, 2020


COGwriter

The Continuing Church of God is pleased to announce this sermon from its ContinuingCOG channel:

1:11:31

Where did we get the Bible? What is the canon? When was the Bible written? How many Bibles have been produced? Did one or more of the Apostles, like John, pass on the knowledge of the books of the Bible? Or did it take until a 382 A.D. proposal by Bishop of Rome Damasus? Or did it take until the Councils of Hippo and Carthage? Or until the Council of Trent in 1546? What about the views of Catholic 101, Priest Echert, and Protestant FF Bruce? Is the Bible the word of truth? Should we believe the Bible? Is the Bible inerrant in all that it affirms? Are secular scholars correct that it contains contradictions? Is the Bible the word of truth? Did biblical prophecies on Tyre, Sidon, and the Messiah come to pass? What about predictions from Jesus? How many books are in the inspired Bible? Should the Old Testament have 39, 46, or more books? Should the New Testament have 27 or more books? Where do Greek Orthodox, Coptic, Roman Catholic, Protestant, and Church of God scholars agree on the number? Are chapter and verse breaks inspired? Dr. Thiel addresses these issues and more.
