LCG Weekly Update 07292016

Greetings from Charlotte,

A global affairs columnist recently noted that, in light of terrorist attacks in Europe, the political and economic uncertainty in the EU, the shootings in America, the conflicts in the Middle East and the tensions created by a resurgent Russia and China, “the years to come could be among the most dangerous in recent human history” (Reuters.com, July 26, 2016, “How Much Worse Could 2016 Get?”). Sobering news items like this certainly fit with the prophetic warnings in Matthew 24 and 2 Timothy 3, and point out the need for the good news of the coming Kingdom of God. Here in Charlotte, Dr. Meredith has held meetings with Mr. Weston and various departments. Mr. Ciesielka reports that the positive trend with “Internet TV” is continuing.

Greetings from Charlotte,
It is remarkable how ancient prophecies indicate that as Israelite nations turn away from God, God will remove the supports of their societies and their impulsive leaders will “cause” them to err even as women rule over them (Isaiah 3:1-4, 12). Today, in more and more nations, we see women reaching for power and leaders in religion and government openly ignoring God’s instructions. Recently, the United Methodist Church (USA) elected its first openly gay bishop and the Republican National Convention asked a Muslim to give the benediction at one of its sessions. We will see more of these anti-biblical actions in the days ahead as our nations move further away from God. Here in Charlotte, Dr. Meredith has written a co-worker letter that has been mailed to more than 13,000 people. Mr. Weston began his duties as Chief Operating Officer this week in Charlotte and spoke to the office staff on Thursday.

Greetings from Charlotte,
Jesus foretold that “signs” of the end of the age would be increasing strife between nations, between ethnic groups and widespread natural disasters (Matthew 24:3-7). As these events occupy more of the news, we need to remember Jesus’ admonition to “watch and be ready” so we are not taken by surprise when He returns to this earth (Matthew 24:42-44). Here in Charlotte, Dr. Meredith has written a member letter, a co-worker letter and will record his Last Great Day message for the Feast. Mr. Ames was in Toronto to record new Tomorrow’s World television programs. Mr. Ciesielka and several from the IT staff were in Houston for training in Web site development and to do filming at the Texas Preteen Camp. Mr. Gerald Weston arrived on Wednesday and is looking forward to getting settled in a new home and becoming involved in the day-to-day operations of the Living Church of God in Charlotte.—DSW

LCG Weekly Update 07082016

Greetings from Charlotte,

Severe weather conditions are again making news. While drought-related wildfires continue to burn in California and abnormally dry conditions affect other parts of the world, a super typhoon is smashing into the island of Taiwan and will dump huge amounts of rain on central and southeastern China, where some of the worst flooding in decades has already affected millions of people. Bible prophecies have long warned that natural disasters will increase as we approach the end of this age (Matthew 24:7; Mark 13:8). This week in Charlotte, Dr. Meredith has written a member letter, held meetings and will give the sermon this Sabbath. Mr. Ames will be in Toronto this Sabbath, and will also film new Tomorrow’s World television programs early next week. Mr. Cristian Orrego and Mr. Jake Hall have returned from Peru where they visited our brethren in Cerro de Pasco, took footage and had meetings regarding the relocation project that is underway there. I will be in Atlanta for services and an Area Leadership Conference on Sunday. The Texas Pre-Teen Camp will begin on Monday. Your prayers for these activities and for God’s people are appreciated.—DSW

Dear Brethren,
More than 450 rescue operations have been conducted in Texas as a result of flooding in May, the wettest month in the state’s history. In some parts of the state, the flooding is being described as “unprecedented.” There has also been record flooding in France and Germany this week, with six dead and the Louvre museum closing.

LCG Weekly Update 04222016

Greetings from Charlotte,
As we approach the Holy Days, Satan always seems to become more active in the world and in our personal lives. This week powerful earthquakes struck Japan and Ecuador killing hundreds and injuring thousands of people. Bombs were detonated in Jerusalem and Afghanistan, killing and injuring dozens more. Houston, America’s fourth-largest city, was hit by torrential rains, and governments in other parts of the world are under siege by frustrated and angry citizens. At this time of year Satan also seems intent on stirring up problems and strife among God’s people wherever he can, so we must be on guard and not lose our focus on what these Holy Days mean for us and for all mankind—that there is a path to salvation that will eventually lead all mankind out of this present evil world.
