Christians are always supposed to be able to give 'an answer' (KJV) 'a defense' (NKJV) according to the Apostle Peter. There are prophecies concerning witnesses in the end times that will "instruct many." Will you be among them? Are there materials that you can study now which may increase the chance that God will use YOU as one of His witnesses to instruct many in these end times?

US President Joe Biden said on 2/19/21 that the USA may NOT "return to normal" in 2021 because of vaccine and mutation issues. Is there another approach? Would it make sense to improve nutrition to strengthen the immune system and to help people with COVID-19? What about zinc, selenium, vitamin C, and vitamin D? What about avoiding unclean meats? What about eating more fruits and vegetables and items such as pumpkin seeds and Brazil nuts? What about eating bovine glandulars? What about herbs? Could fasting help? What about exercise and sunlight? What about masks, lockdowns, junk food, obesity, and weight gain? Dr. Thiel, who possesses a US regionally accredited PhD. in nutrition science from the Union Institute and University, a Master of Science degree from the University of Southern California, and a natural scientist license from the State of Alabama, explains why people may wish to consider approaches for their immune system. He also goes over scriptures related to worse pandemics coming (associated with the ride of the fourth horseman of the Apocalypse--Revelation 6:7-8), and the fact that the Bible teaches to "eat what is good" (Isaiah 55:2).

The Biden-Harris Administration has issued memorandums in order to provide funding and other support for abortions and the LGBTQI+ agenda in the USA and around the world. This funding will also increase USA debt--this is in addition to something that Kamala Harris also did when she voted for an additional $1.9 trillion in debt. The Biden-Harris Administration wants to punish foreign nations not onboard with its LGBTQI+ policies. Joe Biden said his Administration was doing this to help repair the USA's "moral leadership" internationally. Is this promotion of immoral sins going to lead to destruction of the USA, perhaps by 2028? Can the strongest military in the world be taken over? Is the USA prophesied to repent or be take over if it does not repent? Dr. Thiel covers these topics and reveals biblical answers to these questions.

The theme of the World Economic Forum's 2021 meeting was the "great reset." What is the great reset that Klaus Schwab wrote about in his June 2020 book, 'COVID-19: The Great Reset'? World leaders such as Joe Biden, Justin Trudeau, Angela Merkel, Prince Charles, and Pope Francis have pushed for it. But leaders such as Cardinal Gerhard Ludwig Müller, Vladimir Putin, and Jason Kenny have opposed it? Is it a conspiracy? Could the Freemasons, Vatican, and World Council of Churches be endorsing it? Is a great reset prophesied in the Bible? Should you support the humanitarian reset world leaders and academics are pushing? Could a major reset come after the start of the ride of the four horsemen of the Apocalypse and the sorrows that Jesus spoke of? Is this related to the rise of the Beast and the Antichrist? Will a reset last 3 1/2 years, 42 months? What did Jesus say about the Kingdom of God? Dr. Thiel addresses these issues and more in this video.

The Jerusalem-based Jewish Temple Institute correctly teaches that God (which they refer to as HaShem) will reign forever. They also correctly teach that God has a plan. They claim that God's "ultimate goal is to enter into a covenant with Israel" and is raising His people, fashioning them into what He will soon refer to as “a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.” Are Christians to be priests? If so, when? If so, is this to promote the "beatific vision" or for some other purpose? Is God's goal to reproduce Himself so His sons and daughters will be able to give love in a unique way in order to make eternity better for themselves and everyone else? Dr. Thiel addresses these issues and more in this video.

Do you know who gave the world the Bible? What about the chain of custody of the knowledge of the books of the Bible? Did the Apostle John pass the knowledge of the canon of the Bible to people like Polycarp of Smyrna? If so, did the Church of God have the proper knowledge of the books of the Bible since the first century? Did the Greco-Roman-Protestant churches have trouble knowing which books were inspired? Did they not include certain books as inspired as well as books that were not inspired as inspired? What about Hebrews, James, Jude, and 2 John, and Revelation? Does the Bible prophesy that the disciples would bind up the law and testimony? What about the Greco-Roman churches and Origen of Alexandria? What about Papias, Melito, Polycrates, Serapion, and Lucian of Antioch? What about Jerome, Popes, and the Apocrypha? Where any Waldnesians or proto-Waldensians involved in the preservation? Did Protestant Reformers like Martin Luther and Huldrych Zwingli have problems accepting some inspired books? Are most scholars ignorant of the historical reality that people with Church of God doctrines had a chain of custody since the time of the Apostle John through the present time?

Are there prophetic reasons to believe that the USA will not last two complete presidential terms? Yes. There is a tradition attributed to the Hebrew prophet Elijah that humanity had 6,000 years to live before being replaced by God's Kingdom. There are scriptures, writings in the Talmud, early Christian teachings that support this. Also, even certain Hindu writings support it. Here is a summary of ten items to consider:
1. If as the School of Elijah taught, that God inspired Elijah to state that the world as we have known it would last 6,000 years, to be followed by a thousand year sabbatical time, which Jewish tradition (Talmud, Tractate Sanhedrin [97a]) and early Christian traditions records (e.g. Irenaeus, a hearer of Polycarp. Adversus haereses, Book V, Chapter 30:4), then we are getting close to the end of that time.
2. And if, consistent with scriptures in both the Old and New Testaments, we can apply the concept that a thousand years is as a day to God (Psalm 90:4; 2 Peter 3:8).
3. And if, as generally understood in the Church of God that Jesus was killed and resurrected no later than the Spring of 31 A.D. on Passover.
4. And if we can presume that the "last days" of a 7,000 year prophetic week began AFTER the middle day (day 4), then the last days prior to the "sabbatical" time, which some would refer to as the millennial Kingdom of God would last two thousand years.
5. And if when Peter referred to being in the last days (Acts 2:17-18) and since Hebrews 1:1-12 teaches that “God ... has in these last days spoken to us by His Son.”
6. Then adding 2,000 years to a period of time leads to the end of the 6,000 years no later than 2031 (and it could be earlier than that).
7. Since the Great Tribulation is expected to start 3 1/2 years prior to that (cf. Revelation 12:14; 13:5) subtracting 3 1/2 years from the Spring of 2031 would be late in 2027.
8. Understand that the U.S.A. is prophesied to be taken over near the rise of the Beast and start of the Great Tribulation (cf. Daniel 11:39; Jeremiah 30:7; Matthew 24:21-22).
9. Therefore, since the end of two full U.S.A. presidential terms would end in January of 2029, these prophetic understandings point to the end of the U.S.A. prior to two full presidential terms.
10. This is also consistent with certain Hindu and Roman Catholic prophetic writings as well.

The 117th US Congress had an opening prayer by Protestant pastor and Missouri Democratic representative Emanuel Cleaver in which he prayed to the Hindu deity Brahma and ended with the words amen and a-woman. Does "amen" have to do with gender? The next day the US House of Representatives adopted a proposal forbidding the use of gendered terms in rules documents. The changes mean that the rules document will use language such as “parent,” “child,” and “sibling” instead of “mother,” “father,” “son,” daughter,” “brother,” and “sister.” It will also replace “chairman” with “chair,” “seamen” with “seafarers,” and “himself” and “herself” with “themself.” Some Democrats, such as Tulsi Gabbard have objected to this as hypocritical, against science, and against truth. The Bible itself uses a lot of "gendered language." It also teaches woes to "those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness" (Isaiah 5:20). The direction that the USA is going is consistent with the view that the USA will not last two full presidential terms. Dr. Thiel goes over several scriptures to point out the errors of some of the word positions of the 117th US Congress.

Is the 'traditional order' of books of the Bible found in most Bibles the original one? If not, where did it come from? Was the Roman Catholic saint Jerome involved? What was the order according to the Jews? Are the 22 books according to the Jews the same as the 39 books of the Old Testament according to Christians? What is the Torah, Nevi'im, Ketuvim, and the Tanakh? Did Dr. Ernest Martin do scholarly research into the original order of the books of the Bible? What was the original order of the Bible and the 27 books of the New Testament? Did the old Ambassador College teach that there was a seven-fold division of the books of the Bible? If so, what were the seven divisions? Which books were in each? Were there any issues related to the Book of Daniel? Do we need the scriptures to be complete according to the Apostle Paul? Do we need to be doers and not hearers only according to the Apostle James? Did Jesus say we are to live by every word of God?

Deutsche Welle reported "LGBT conversion therapy: Religious leaders call for ban to 'abhorrent' practice." 370 religious leaders around the world have declared their support for the LGBTQ+ agenda. They declare their support of the view of the World Health Organization that it is normal to not be cisgender heterosexual. They bemoan "that certain religious teachings have often, throughout the ages" (like those of the Bible) have "caused ... offense to those who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and intersex." The Global Interfaith Commission on LGBT+ Lives wants people to tell their religious leaders to sign a supportive "Global Declaration.' Yet, this is in conflict with scripture. In this video, Dr. Thiel quotes scriptures from the Holy Bible that clearly oppose and condemn homosexuality, lesbianism, transgenderism, and male effeminacy. God is not the author of confusion. Dr. Thiel also quotes passages in the Bible where God warns what will happen to those who despise His statutes, abhors God's judgments, so that you do not perform all His commandments. Dr. Thiel also points to the totalitarian system the interfaith agenda is moving towards.

Is the end coming in 2021? Jesus’ disciples specifically asked Him how to know when this would happen (Matthew 24:3)–and He responded with details (Matthew 24:4-22). Sadly, many overlook what Jesus taught, but instead try to point to other things. Is it possible for the Great Tribulation to start in 2021 or before 2024? What about the so-called Big Reset and the so-called Great Reset. The World Economic Forum has posted, "The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development sets out a 17 Global Goals (SDGs) to facilitate equal, sustainable and inclusive growth across the world, while promoting peace. ... The platform seeks to form 4IR technology partnership … There is an urgent need for global stakeholders to cooperate in simultaneously managing the direct consequences of the COVID-19 crisis. To improve the state of the world, the World Economic Forum is starting The Great Reset initiative." What are the main points of that according to Klaus Schwab? Will that happen in 2021?

On December 4, 2020, the Vatican published handbook with instructions for Catholic bishops to promote unity with other professing Christian communities. The document is called an “ecumenical vademecum.” It was approved by Pope Francis and issued Dec. 4 by the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity. It asserts that "Christ willed" the type of unity that the Church of Rome is now promoting. Pope Francis says that such unity is not optional, and has support from many government and religious leaders around the world including the World Council of Churches and the United Nations. The Vademecum pushes trinitarian unity as important--when did that become important? What did Emperor Theodosius decree about those who did not agree with his trinitarian declaration that was adopted by the Council of Constantinople that he had convened in 381 A.D.? Does the Bible teach about the type of worldly unity many promote? Is true "unity of faith" expected before the return of Jesus and the establishment of the Kingdom of God? Is teaching the opposite a false gospel? Are Christians to flee the coming end time daughter of Babylon according to the New Jerusalem Bible (a Roman Catholic translation into English)? Did the 18th century nun Jane le Royer warn against a group that sounds like the Continuing Church of God? What should those holding to the original faith do?

Researchers believe that Chinese horseshoe bats and probably pangolins were involved in the creation of the novel coronavirus. Pigs, chimps, monkeys, and other unclean animals have been connected to pandemics over the course of human history. Does the Bible prohibit the consumption of these animals as well as the consumption of animal blood?

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?

The USA presidential campaign is in full swing. Though Democratic party candidate Joe Biden and Republican party candidate Donald Trump have differing economic and climate policies as well as different views on abortion and racial matters, there are many similarities both share. Do they have policies that they share that are leading to the destruction of the USA? What do Bible prophecies reveal about sexual immorality, debt, and hypocrisy? What are some of the national sins of the USA? Does the Bible endorse voting? What did Jesus teach related to what to seek and pray for? What does the New Testament teach that Christians are to do related to leaders? Is the lesser of two evils still evil? Dr. Thiel goes over these matters, including going over eleven similarities the two major party candidates share and some of what the Bible teaches about evil.
On August 13, 2020, US President Donald Trump sent out a tweet over Twitter of something called the "Joint Statement of the United States, the State of Israel, and the United Arab Emirates;" it is also called the Abraham Accord(s). Many are excited about it as it is the first such deal between Israel and an Arab nation in 25 years. Others have denounced it as counter-productive. The United Arab Emirates has agreed essentially to recognize Israel if it does not proceed now with the annexations of Samaria, etc. it had planned. Although it is being hailed as a "historic peace deal," a senior Palestinian official and negotiator named Saeb Erekat, said on August 14, 2020, “You are rewarding aggression. … You have destroyed, with this move, any possibility of peace between Palestinians and Israelis.” On the other hand, Breaking Israel News has suggested that this deal fulfills prophecies in Psalm 133:1 and Genesis 16:12 related to Ishmael and Jacob--is that true? Will peace come to the Middle East? Does Daniel 9:26-27 talk about a seven-year temporal peace deal coming to the Middle East? Will the prince, who becomes the King of the North, confirm this deal and break it after 3 1/2 years? How do we know that it is a European (a descendant from the peoples of the ancient Roman Empire) confirm it? Will most be deceived by false claims of a humanistic, Satanic, peace? Will many Christians not understand? Is the confirmation of a coming deal a countdown to the start of the Great Tribulation, the destruction of the USA (Daniel 11:39) and its Anglo-Saxon descended allies, as well as the destruction of a confederation of Middle Eastern and North African peoples led by one the Bible calls the King of the South (Daniel 11:40-43)? Will humans bring real peace or do we need the return of Jesus and the establishment of the millennial portion of the Kingdom of God to do that? Dr. Thiel addresses these issues and more.
