Welcome to Church of God
 Research Center

 

     This website has been designed to assist you in learning and better understanding the gospel of Jesus Christ.  He taught the one true gospel – the gospel of the coming Kingdom of God. This gospel, taught by Jesus Christ, is a message about God’s exhilarating purpose for creating the human race in the first place - that of expanding His family and making it possible for mankind to inherit eternal life as a member of that family. Salvation is a personal issue, between a man or woman and God (Philippians 2:12).

     Through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, we can understand the Scriptures (1Corinthians 2:10-16). And as the Bible is the Word of God in print, as we read, we hear what He has to say about His Church.  Jesus continues to this day to build His Church (Matthew 16:18), as the Temple of the Lord is not yet complete. In the New Testament, His church is named, "Church of God" for it is a spiritual organism and not an organization of men.  It is the Body of Christ, of which Jesus Christ is the Head. Therefore, we are all instructed to grow into the grace and knowledge of our Savior – Jesus Christ (2Peter3:18). 

   
   






























 
 
 
 
WHO IS THE SECOND BEAST OF REVELATION 13
 Trending and Significant by Guest Commentator: Stephen LeBlanc of COG-eim - Mar 16, 2018

Revelation 13: 11 Then I saw a second beast, coming out of the earth. It had two horns like a lamb, but it spoke like a dragon. 12 It exercised all the authority of the first beast on its behalf, and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose fatal wound had been healed.13 And it performed great signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to the earth in full view of the people.

A deceitful false Christian leader—A “Catholic” despot will soon emerge; this man will sway millions with his stunning miracles.

The Bible reveals that this end-time revival of the Roman Empire will combine the power of a dominant church with the political machinery of the state—the “woman” (symbol of a religious leader) will ride the beast (symbol of the state—see Daniel 7:8, 20-21; Revelation 17: 1-6).

European history makes it clear that the Catholic Church, allied with European kings down through the years, made it possible for ambitious kings to unify large areas under the banner of what could then be termed the Holy Roman Empire. Revelation 17:1-2 says the great harlot (false church) involved herself with secular politics: “Come, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits on many waters, with whom the kings of the earth committed fornication…”. God describes this “unholy” alliance between church and state as an act of spiritual fornication. God hates the “harlot” with her poisonous doctrines and destructive politicking.

The Apostle John, in the Book of Revelation, revealed just how influential the Catholic Church would become down through the centuries. An angel had explained to John that “the waters which you saw, where the harlot sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues (languages)” (17:15). No other Church in history has exercised so much power! This fallen woman who “sits on seven hills” (17:9) is the great false church whose headquarters is in Rome, Italy today. For over 2000 years Rome has been known as the “city on seven hills”. The Catholic Encyclopedia states: “It is within the city of Rome, called the city of seven hills, that the entire area of Vatican State proper is now connected” (The Catholic Encyclopedia “Rome” Thomas Nelson, 1976).....

God's Love of Covenant
- Sermon Series

      Guest Speaker: Steven LeBlanc of COG-eim
    
"A covenant is a sacred agreement between God and a person or group of people. God sets specific conditions, and He promises to bless us as we obey those conditions. When we choose not to keep covenants, we cannot receive the blessings, and in some instances we suffer a penalty as a consequence of our disobedience."
