“Why Trump Will Stay in Office!” is the title of a new StandingWatch program, presented by Evangelist Norbert Link. Here is a summary:
The Democratic Convention has ended. This program will cover a few highlights and contentions and discusses whether the Democratic criticism of Donald Trump, especially regarding the coronavirus, is justified. It also addresses the unconvincing speeches of Kamala Harris and Bill Clinton, as well as Joe Biden’s well-received acceptance speech; the success story of South Dakota; and suggestions and actions of Donald Trump which might hurt him. Still, we explain as to why we are convinced that Donald Trump will stay in office.

“Lockdowns and Governmental Restrictions—Comments on News and Prophecy August 22, 2020,” is the title of last Sabbath’s first message, presented by Norbert Link. Here is a summary:
While governmental restrictions are being imposed on American citizens, thereby causing economic hardship and ruin for many businesses and people, medical experts and governors kept enjoying their monthly paychecks. But how dangerous is the pandemic? One professional magician claims that it is all an illusion. How is that “new reality” affecting your life and your personal choices? And how does it affect the Church of God and important decisions as they relate to Church services?
“Faith that Saves,” the sermon presented last Sabbath by Michael Link, is now posted. Here is a summary:
Faith all by itself without any action isn’t enough to be saved. What do we need to do in order for us to be truly saved from death? How can we learn from the examples in the Bible what it means to put our complete trust in God?
