Who is Peter Salemi?
Peter Salemi is the President of the organization called the British-Israel Church of God (BICOG). He is host of the Watchman Program on You Tube, and editor in Chief of Commonwealth Magazine.
Peter Salemi is a Canadian Born citizen, son of Italian immigrants that came to Canada in the 1960's. Born April 18th, 1969. Raised in a typical Italian home with two other siblings and practicing Roman Catholics.
Peter Salemi was exposed to the truth of God when he was a young teen. His earliest recollection of the seed (the word of God) being planted in his mind was through the World Tomorrow broadcast in 1982. Many other seeds were planted throughout his teen life that directly influenced his decision to begin to follow Jesus Christ.
Then in the late 80’s early 90’s he began to watch Garner Ted Armstrong’s program, and God really began to reveal the truth to Mr. Salemi. God was certainly calling him into his church. He began to understand through Ted Armstrong’s broadcast the truth of God. This went on for at least 3 to 4 years of watching the program. During that time Peter Salemi immersed himself in the study of the Bible, history, philosophy and Politics till this day.
Then the day came when Mr. Salemi made the decision to start attending the Church of God International in 1992. He was then Baptized in 1993. He attended the Toronto congregation till around 1997 then the church split due to internal problems at head office which of course affected the entire church. Mr. Salemi started worshipping at home on the Sabbath. A long 3 years passed. God seemed silent, and not working in his life the way he did when he attended the Church of God International. Then something stirred inside of Mr. Salemi. He realized that he had to find a way to serve God the best way he could. He decided to do a work on the then emerging internet.
So Mr. Salemi decided to build a website. Under the influence of the Holy Spirit, he began to write booklets, and broadcast videos preaching the Gospel and the truths of God. At one point he did a live radio broadcast on internet radio. The then internet radio program was given up for the now Watchman Program on You Tube.
The Watchman Program is the vehicle Peter Salemi uses to preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God. A witness and warning message to the nations of Israel following the instructions God gave to Ezekiel of the Watchman work to the House of Israel. Also, the message of the Gospel of the Kingdom- the good news that Jesus Christ will set up his kingdom on earth; the program is an advanced announcement of that coming kingdom.
