    Mr. Sexton, At the beginning of part 2 you mention a web site where the folks in attendance could get your sermon notes...is that web site still active? I sure would like to get those notes. There is so much information to absorb...I think I'm going to have to watch both videos again. Thank you!

    I've been unable to view the interviews. Are they posted somewhere? Please provide a link. Thank you.

    I would like to hear from people who are relatively new Sabbath keepers, whom God called out of the world and out of other churches. What were their challenges in transitioning to this new way of life. I'm 52 and have just recently become a Sabbath keeper.

    Steven - thank you for your thoughtful response. Yes, I have located the nearest UCG congregation (Raleigh and Greensboro, NC) and did actually meet up with the pastor last summer. I made my first Sabbath service last month on the first day of Unleavened Bread. I am planning to attend more regularly.
  • brian.numerick
    Skip - thank you for the quick response. I will do as you (and Gary Petty) advise. I won't be able to attend every Sabbath but I think 1-2 times a month is feasible. I appreciate your wisdom and advice on this topic.

    Thank you for replying Gary. I appreciate your advice and wisdom on this subject.

    This is a great lesson and I appreciate the UCG organization for teaching truth and nothing but truth - you have been a great blessing to me. What advice can you provide to those of us who do not have a Sabbath-keeping congregation within a reasonable distance from home? Is it permissible or advisable to congregate with Sunday church-goers while also honoring and keeping the Sabbath at home? I make use of all of the available internet tools like UCG webcasts, video, audio, and written documents as well as those of other Sabbath-keeping organizations (mainly, Churches of God) along with Bible study and earnest prayer; but I definitely see the value in fellowship and congregational worship. Unfortunately, there is no "local" (to me) community of Sabbath-keepers. Making an hour plus trip every Saturday to get to the nearest congregation does not seem practical. Or is that the norm for most Sabbath-keepers (a long drive to Sabbath services)? Should I re-evaluate my expectations?

    Well done! Thank you.

    Please provide scriptural references for your statement, "Pentecost (6 Sivan - 50th day after Passover) - the kingdom of God falls on the church consisting of Jews and Gentiles as "one new man" in Christ with no possibility of some future division of Jews and Gentiles as all are now identified as the Israel of God". I want to study this further.

    Very well written Kevin! Thank you.

    On a radio program today a Christian apologist actually said that Jesus died on Friday and the proof is that it was the preparation day so obviously it was a Friday. How can a so-called Christian apologist be so clueless about the two Sabbaths that week? The more I hear from all of these purported experts with their Doctorates in Theology and decades of studying the Bible, the more I realize the sad state of mainline Sunday keeping Christianity.

    I am simultaneously baffled, disappointed, and annoyed that mainstream Christian teachers don't teach the plain truth of scripture. Just today on Christian radio I heard a well-known Baptist minister making the same old erroneous claims about Jesus being in the tomb for "3 days and 2 nights". On another radio show a well known pastor completely botched the true meaning of the Passover, calling it an Old Testament "law" only for the Jews. Then to top it off, yet another famous pastor made a reference to the "12 Jewish tribes" and how the "lost tribes" cannot possibly be in existence in the end times because, "They are lost! They are no more!" Are you kidding me? Is this willful ignorance or has God completely blinded them to the truth?

    Thanks Steven. I will continue to study. The first link you gave me doesn't work (http://bible.ucg.org/bible-commentary/Daniel/Daniel’s-vision-of-four-beasts-and-the-Ancient-of-Days/).

    Mr. Myers, this was very informative and helpful but you leave me wondering about the 6th kingdom (the "one that is"). If it's the Rome-Berlin axis as you say, then the time period in history that the angel was showing John at that point in the revelation would be around 1939-42 correct? The "is" would have to be the yet-future WWII.

    Steven can you elaborate on the 10 resurrection of the Roman empire? If the one to come is the tenth, and Nazi Germany was one of them, who are the other eight?
