You feel that you should follow God. Have you proven that God exists? Should you? Can you prove that Jesus was the prophesied Messiah as opposed to being one of many religious leaders throughout history? What is truth? What about the Bible? Can you have religious certainty? If the Bible is true, what books should be in it? If God is calling you, will you respond to that call? How are you supposed to live as a Christian? Can you get assistance on the ten commandments, holy day, prayer, and faith? What about the gospel of the Kingdom of God? What about life's biggest questions? Why did God create anything? Why did God make you? Should you support the work of the true church? Can history and scriptures help you identify the true Christian church? What about the truest Philadelphian Church of God at this time? Is reading enough or should you obey and be a doer of the word? Dr. Thiel addresses these issues and suggests free online scripture-filled books and booklets to aid those who are in a quest for the truth. As Jesus said, "you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."

The Apostle Paul prophesied that there would be brutal men in the last days. Is the Christian solution to carry handguns to "blow away" those who may try to harm them? Do real Christians need to fear like those in the world do? What should a Christian do if actually attacked? Is there a place for noise, light, or other deterrents? What about prayer? What did Jesus teach? What about the swords in the New Testament? What should Christians seek first and focus on? What did Ezra do when faced with the possibility of criminal gangs? What did the old Worldwide Church of God teach on the subject of self-defense? Dr. Thiel addresses these issues and more.

Should you pay attention to prophecy? Some wonder about that. Some people, called preterists, consider that most prophecy is already fulfilled, which is a wrong and dangerous position to take. Most world leaders look upon preaching the prophecies of WHAT GOD SAYS IS GOING TO HAPPEN as mere fanaticism or religious extremism. As Peter predicted (2 Peter 3:1-12), many tend to spurn, scorn, ridicule, and scoff at the applicability of Bible prophecy. Does God reveal secrets and mysteries to prophets? What about the plan of God? What about Jesus and prophecy? Is the testimony of Jesus the spirit of prophecy? Does the rejection of proper church governance lead to prophetic and other doctrinal misunderstandings? Should we watch world events to motivate us and to better appreciate the word of God? Is prophecy intended to give Christians hope and comfort? Should prophecy help Christians repent and change? Dr. Thiel addresses these and other matters in this scripture-filled message.

From the 'Godzilla dust cloud' to earthquakes to locusts in Africa, Asia (India), & South America (Argentina, Brazil) to increased cases of COVID-19 to Middle East rumors of war related to Israeli Prime Minister's intent to annex Judea/Samaria against the wishes of the Palestinians, Arabs, & Europeans to economic risks to high unemployment to risk of famine and riots, demonstrations, & looting, many difficult events have been happening around the world. Are these consistent with the troubles Jesus said were associated with the 'beginning of sorrows"? Are they, as well as the increasingly effective ecumenical movement, also consistent with the opening of the four seals and the riding of the 'four horsemen of the Apocalyse'? Will these matters result in the rise of the pompous 'King of the North'? Will he be a deceiver and cause persecutions associated with the fifth seal of Revelation 6:9-11? Did United Nations' Secretary-General Antonio Guterres warn of historic levels of hunger and famine with at least 1.6 billion people possibly affected? Is there any protection from this? Will most Christians be protected? Are you heeding what Jesus and the prophets like Daniel and Zephaniah warned about? Are you willing to lose your life for the sake of the gospel? Are you supporting the proclamation of the gospel of the Kingdom of God (Matthew 24:14)? Are you praying to be "counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man"? Most Christians (like the Laodiceans) will not be.

Jude said to "contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints" (Jude 3). When it comes to church leaders, who did so? Did Polycarp of Smyrna, who the Continuing Church of God traces its history through, do so? Did Martin Luther, who Protestants trace their history through, do so? When and by whom were they baptized? Who ordained them? What did they teach regarding scripture, baptism, unclean meat, Passover/Easter, Holy Days/Christmas, icons/crosses, the kingdom or heaven as reward, whether most would be saved or lost, the millennium, Jews, and military involvement? Which of them was faithful?

Jesus' disciples asked when He would return, and Jesus said a great trumpet would accompany His second coming. World Net Daily had an article titled "Second Coming? The '1000-year day- timetable says soon" on June 8, 2020. The article by Scott Lively cited the Apostle Peter's words in Acts 2 and 2 Peter 3. Plus, Hosea 6. Jewish Talmudic writings, based on a tradition from the school of Elijah, pointed to humans living for 6,000 years to be followed by a 1,000 year Messianic period. That sounds consistent with the six days of work followed by a seventh day Sabbath (Exodus 20), the six years of working the land followed by a one year land Sabbath (Leviticus 25), aspects of the biblical holy days (Leviticus 23), and millennial passages in the New Testament (Revelation 20:1-6). When might the last days have started? Could Jesus return within months as Scott Lively speculates in his article or at least seven years from now? Why might 2031 be a possible date for the end of the 6,000 years and the return of Jesus? Dr. Thiel goes over these issues and more.
Could Satan or any of his demons be impacting the economy of the world and Europe through having both the coronavirus outbreak and the British Exit (Brexit) from the European Union? Did governments tend to react in a way causing 'self-inflicted' damage to the economy? What about actions from the European Central Bank? Has demonic involvement been asked by the German press? Does the Bible teach that Satan is the god of this age and that the world is under his sway? Will involvement from Satan and his demons lead to the rise of the Beast, False Prophet (Antichrist), and the gathering at Armageddon according to scriptures in the Book of Revelation? What event did the late Worldwide Church of God Pastor General Herbert W. Armstrong feel would trigger the prophesied unification of Europe under the Beast? What about 'miracles,' signs, and lying wonders? What did Jesus say that Christians should do? What about prayer and the kingdom of God? Will you fall for Satan's lies and deception? Dr. Thiel discusses each of these matters and more.
We are seeing riots and protests across the USA, protests and skirmishes in Hong Kong, and another potential intifada with the Palestinians over Israel's annexation plans. Could any of this be related to the beginning of sorrows Jesus mentioned in Matthew 24? What about rider of the red horse of war of the apocalypse? Is ethic group prophesied to be against ethnic group according to the Orthodox Jewish Bible? Did the red horse begin the ride in the 20th century? What is the relationship of the seals of Revelation 6 and the start of the Great Tribulation? Will a warring 'Beast' leader arise in Europe? Might he quell civil unrest? Might he militarily destroy the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada? What about the Islamic nations of the Middle East and North Africa? Will Jesus have the King of the North Beast defeated? After Jesus returns will this be the time when people will not learn war? What about the other seals in the Book of Revelation? Dr. Thiel address these and more in this video.
Is the one we call Jesus the Christ the archangel called Michael? Both the Jehovah's Witnesses (JWs) and the Seventh-day Adventists (SDAs) teach this is so. Do the scriptures that Jws and SDAs point to prove that? Or does the Bible teach something else? Did Ellen G. White really teach Jesus was Michael in her book 'The Great Controversy'? Have 21st century SDAs also taught Jesus is the archangel Michael? Does the New Testament book of Hebrews prove or disprove the Jesus was Michael claim? What do scriptures in the Bible reveal?

According to the University of Chicago NORC poll in its 'COVID Impact Survey,' many in the USA are now worried that they may not have enough to eat. The USA is also experiencing food price inflation and could be facing meat shortages. At the same time, Chinese purchases of American pork have soared. Are famines coming to North Americans and the British-descended peoples of the USA, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand? The USA owes over $1 trillion dollars to China. Did Dr. Thiel warn back on May 21, 2010 that the USA may export food to China while Americans starve? Has the ride of the third horseman of the Apocalypse begun his ride? Will famines get so bad that people in wealthy countries will spend what they have and even resort to eating their children? What do the Books of Ezekiel and Lamentations reveal? What did Jesus say? What did Jesus say you should do about these matters? Dr. Thiel addresses these issues and more.

Could COVID-19 be a prelude to a better society, a better new world order? Some think so. Will the novel coronavirus kill the 'New World Order' that people like Pat Buchanon dread? Should we 'beware of plans to build back better'? Are more in Europe looking for an authoritarian leader now? Will Europe get one? What does the Bible teach? What about the coming, 'time of Jacob's trouble,' the Great Tribulation, and final 'time of the Gentiles'? What did German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas say happened to European unity during this crisis? Does he want a multilaterial new world order that is not dominated by the United States and United Kingdom? Is Europe working towards implementing an end time Babylonian system that the Bible warns against, but that certain Catholic prophecies look forward to? Is the 'great prince of the north' the dreaded 'king of the north'? Will he work with the final Antichrist? Will the coming European 'empire of the north' destroy the strongest fortresses? Will the fortresses, the military strength, of the UK, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand cease in accordance with the prophecy in Isaiah 17:3? Is Europe prophesied to reorganize and eliminate all republics? Dr. Thiel addresses these issues and more in this scripture filled analysis and commentary.
Could government actions related to COVID-19 be showing the end of American exceptionalism? The USA used to at least give lip service to its the Bill of Rights in its Constitution. But now, not so much. What do the first, fourth, and fourteenth amendments to the US Constitution supposedly guarantee? Tucker Carlson stated, "For 250 years, Americans have enjoyed the unfettered right to practice their faith as they choose. Now they don’t. ... Now that we’ve ceded all authority in the country to our political leaders, what can’t they do? What are the limits to their power?" What about John Winthrop's “A Model of Christian Charity” sermon delivered on March 21, 1630 where he quoted Jesus' statement in Matthew 5:14 in the Sermon on the Mount about being the City upon a Hill? About being an example? This has been referred to by at least three who became President of the United States, including John F. Kennedy, Ronald Reagan, and Barack Obama. Why, instead, did the World Health Organization's Dr. Mike Ryan (the WHO’s top emergencies expert) point to Sweden as being an example for the world? Will a coming man of sin, son of perdition want himself and his government worshiped above all others? Will this pandemic shatter the perception of American exceptionalism? Will this end in 666? Dr. Thiel covers these matters and more.

Groundhog Day is a popular American tradition observed in the United States and Canada on February 2nd, that science shows is essentially based on a myth. In 1993, there was a movie starring Bill Murray as Phil Connors titled 'Groundhog Day.' It has become a cultural icon in a sense in the USA. In the movie, Phil ends up in a time loop where everyday is February 2nd. This goes on for at least ten years. At first, Phil pursues various lusts of the flesh. But eventually, he tires of the vanity of it all. Instead of being a selfish taker, he becomes a giver. Once he has learned whatever he is supposed to learn, he finally awakes to a new day and a new life. Are there lessons here for Christians? What are some of them? Can we learn anything from Jonah and his being swallowed by a great fish? What should Christians do each day? What shouldn't Christians do? What about the mystery of God's plan and the Kingdom of God? Dr. Thiel goes over these topics and more in this scripture filled video he relates to comments about the movie 'Groundhog Day.'

Following statements from various political leaders, Luxembourg Cardinal Jean-Claude Hollerich voiced concerns that COVID-19 could lead to the end of the European Union as nationalism is pushing out European solidarity. Could the EU break apart? Could the Euro collapse? Does the Bible tell of unity problems for Europe in Daniel 2? Does the Bible teach that Europe will reorganize and give its power to a totalitarian dictator called the Beast from the sea? How will the prophesied European unity come about? What did Austrian researcher Tamara Ehs warn related to European democracy and authoritarianism? Was the late Herbert W. Armstrong correct about his apocalyptic 20th century warnings related to fear and religion uniting Europe? Will the 'beast from the earth' be the final Antichrist and a type of antipope? Does the Book of Revelation support the view he will betray the Vatican and/or the Church of Rome? Could European ideals include differences with the USA on the World Health Organization, differences on climate change, and fears about the the USA's military be factors in the prophesied unity under the Beast? Could economic problems and fear from pestilences be a factor in dictatorial change coming to Europe?

According to a secular source, related to COVID-19, Matt Smith wrote, "We could have been better prepared." He also went over many issues, including lockdowns, illness, and deaths that should be anticipated related to COVID-19. But he then said, "Get ready. The world is about to need you." Are you willing to step up spiritually and support the Philadelphian work? Most end time Christians are prophesied not to do so. Do the words the Mordecai passed on to Queen Esther have meaning for you today? Could you have been called into the Kingdom of God for a time such as this? What are the plans that God might have for you? Are you one who may have been prophesied to "instruct many" in the end time? Are you watching and praying? Are you cold or lukewarm when it comes to God's work? Are you mainly a hearer of the word of a doer? Dr. Thiel goes over these subjects.
The novel coronavirus called COVID-19 is wreaking havoc around the world. Many states of the USA as well as countries in Europe are on lockdown with shelter in place /shelter in residence requirements. In France, a form is required when you are not at your house. In Spain, drones are being used to warn people who are outside to got back to their homes--does that bring up feelings of 'Big Brother'? Italy, France, and other areas are using police and/or military force to encourage people to stay inside. According to the Bible could this be the end? If not, what has to happen first? Have the second and third of the four horsemen of the Apocalypse started their ride? Could COVID-19 be the fourth horseman? Why or why not? Could we be seeing The End of the World as We Know It (TEOTWAKI) like the R.E.M.'s 1987 single song discussed? Do Christians need to fear? What did Jesus teach? What did the Psalmist teach?
El Nuevo coronavirus de Wuhan, famoso en China, ahora se llama COVID-19. También se le ha llamado “Coronapocalipsis” ¿Tiene el Covid-19 alguna ramificación profética? ¿Qué enseñó Jesús sobre las pestes y aflicción en la profecía del monte de los Olivos en Mateo 24? ¿Podría el Covid-19 ser el galopar del cuarto jinete del apocalipsis? ¿Por qué se esperaba este tipo de enfermedad según las profecías del Antiguo Testamento en Deuteronomio y Levítico? ¿Sobre que han advertido el Centro de Control de Enfermedades de Estados Unidos? ¿Qué ha informado el CDC sobre la gripe? ¿Hubo lecciones sobre el miedo y las infecciones en la pelicula de 2011 :Contagio”? Debido al Covid-19, la Organización Mundial de la salud (OMS) la nación de Irán y ciertos lugares culturales y los Franceses están pidiendo a las personas que no usen dinero en efectivo, sino formas de pagos electrónicos, La Reserva Federal de los Estados Unidos ahora está poniendo en cuarentena el dinero repatriado de Asia para reducir la posible propagación del coronavirus en los billetes en moneda estadounidense. El Covid-19 es peor de 1o que se nos ha dicho o ¿podría ser todo un evento de “falsa bandera” para alentar a las personas a avanzar hacia una sociedad sin dinero en efectivo? Si las miles de muertes asociadas con el Covid-19 están empujando a partes del mundo hacia la falta de dinero en efectivo, ¿Cuánto más probable será el galopar del cuarto jinete y mas de mil millones de muertes humanas motive a las personas a realizar pagos electrónicos que pueden ser monitoreados? La biblia habla de una sociedad que vendrá pronto y que control a las compras y las ventas para forzar la lealtad al poder de una bestia Europea, conocido como 666 (Apocalipsis 13: 16-18) ¿Comienza la “Gran Tribulación antes del galopar del cuarto jinete o con la aperture del quinto sello de Apocalipsis 6? ¿Las palabras de Jesús nos ayudan a comprender major la secuencia de los cuatro jinetes del Apocalipsis y el comienzo de la Gran Tribulación? ¿El galopar del cuarto jinete ayudará al ascenso del 666? ¿Está esa cabalgata muy cerca?

The novel coronavirus of Wuhan, China fame, is now called COVID-19. It has also been called the 'Coronapocalypse.' Does COVID-19 have any prophetic ramifications? What did Jesus teach about pestilences and sorrows in the Olivet prophecy in Matthew 24? Could COVID-19 be the ride of the fourth horseman of the Apocalypse? Why was this type of disease expected according to the Old Testament prophecies in Deuteronomy and Leviticus? What has the US Centers for Disease Control warned about? What has the CDC reported about the flu? Were there lessons about fear and infections in the 2011 movie 'Contagion'? Because of COVID-19, the World Health Organization (WHO), nation of Iran, and certain French locations are telling people not to use cash, but instead electronic forms of payment. The US Federal Reserve is now quarantining money repatriated from Asia to reduce the potential spread of the coronavirus on US currency bills. Is COVID-19 worse than we have been told or could this all be a 'false flag' event to encourage people to move towards a cashless society? If the thousands of deaths associated with COVID-19 are pushing parts of the world towards cashlessness, how much more likely will the ride of the fourth horseman and over a billion human deaths motivate people to move to making electronic payments that can be monitored? The Bible tells of a soon coming society that controls buying and selling to force allegiance to a coming European Beast power, known as 666 (Revelation 13:16-18). Does the 'great tribulation' begin before ride of the fourth horseman or with the opening of the fifth seal of Revelation 6? Do the words of Jesus helps us better understand the sequence of the four horsemen of the Apocalypse and the start of the Great Tribulation? Will the ride of the fourth horseman help lead to the rise of 666? Is that ride very close? Dr. Thiel addresses these issues and more.

What about the so-called filioque clause? What is the creed at the website of the Vatican? Which 'creed' is considered to be the oldest? What does the creed known as the "old Roman form" actually state?

Some of the irreligious consider that human beings are parasites and the universe would be better of with less of them. Professor Patrician MacCormack wrote a book titled 'The Ahuman Manifesto' where she blames nearly all problems on white heterosexual males and advocates phasing out human reproduction to save the planet. Are humans capable of destroying the planet? What did Jesus say and do? Why did God destroy Sodom and Gomorrah? Are human beings really parasites that are not helpful? If God is calling you can you be working to make eternity better now? What is God's plan for humans? Are humans supposed to rule the universe and make it better?

On January 28, 2020, the Trump Administration revealed its Mideast peace plan, which Donald Trump has referred to as the 'deal of the century.' Could it have prophetic ramifications? Could it be the 'peace deal' of Daniel 9:26-27? While many Israeli politicians (such as Benjamin Netanyahu, Benny Gatz, Rafael Minnes) like the deal, various Jewish religious leaders (including the Temple Institute) have raised objections. What have Protestants and the World Council of Churches said about it? Will Jerusalem be divided? Is the USA at risk of troubles (Mark 13:8) and disasters related to this deal? While the architect of the deal, Donald Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner thought he had significant Arab support for the plan, the Arab League and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation rejected it. So, too, has Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas as well as Hamas. Turkey's President Recep Erdogan claimed that he received economic and other threats from the United States for his public objection of the plan. Could Turkey take actions against the USA? What does Psalm 83 reveal? Is it possible that that the Trump 'vision for peace' could be the deal of Daniel 9:27? Dr. Thiel addresses these issues and more in this video.
At 11:00 pm January 31, 2020, the United Kingdom formally left the European Union. Many celebrated, while many mourned. Nigel Farage stated, "This is the greatest moment in modern British history." What will happen to the United Kingdom? Will the UK be involved in trade deals with the United States of America and the Europeans? Will the UK regret the BRitish Exit (Brexit) from the EU?What will happen with the European Union? Is Europe prophesied to have a great army and many ships? Does the Bible prophesy a reorganization of Europe? Does it prophesy that the Europeans will become a conquering military power? Is the United Kingdom prophesied to be conquered? How does the Bible name the British-descended peoples? Was the British Empire the largest in world history? Was Brexit predicted by Church of God leaders in 1970 and the early 1990s? Will the European Union be negatively affected financially by the departure of the UK? Will this turn out well for the UK or the Europeans? Dr. Thiel addresses these issues and more in this video.
Is biological warfare possible? Was it prophesied? Scientists have long warned that pathogenic organisms like the coronavirus could be weaponized. Furthermore, back in 2017, there were concerns that the biological research facility being constructed in Wuhan, China was risky and that a coronavirus from it could be released. On January 25, 2020, China's President Xi Jinping publicly stated that the situation with the Wuhan-related strain of the coronavirus was grave. Did Church of God writers like the late evangelist Raymond McNair warn that engineered viruses (the "Doomsday bug") were consistent with prophecies from Jesus? Did a warning from CCOG leader Bob Thiel warn about risks of genetically-modified (GMO) mosquitoes come to pass? Could human research and/or the consumption of biblically-unclean animals such as bats and snakes be a factor in current outbreaks or coming future pestilences? What about famines? How devastating have pestilences been? How devastating are the prophesied ones going to be? Dr. Thiel addresses these issues and more.
