God commands us to go up to His Feasts three times a year, to present an offering that we may remember Him and all that he has done for us:

Three times a year all your males shall appear before the LORD your God at the place that he will choose: at the Feast of Unleavened Bread, at the Feast of Weeks, and at the Feast of Booths. They shall not appear before the LORD empty-handed. Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the LORD your God that he has given you. – Deuteronomy 16:16-17 (ESV)

This spring, we will be hosting a variety of services and festivities in beautiful Penticton, British Columbia to celebrate the New Testament Passover, the Hebrew Passover and the first day of Unleavened Bread. We invite you to join us for Celebrate! Passover 2014 on April 11-16.

Starting with a Welcome and Hymn Sing-a-long on April 11, Celebrate! Passover will offer many opportunities to fellowship and worship. Activities include video workshop and filming for our Truth Bytes series, an unleavened bread bake-off, a group lunch and wine tasting (TBC), a buffet dinner for The Night to be Much Observed, a family dance and a potluck dinner. In addition to regular Sabbath services, there will be special services on the Holy Day and a New Testament Passover service.

Services will be held at the Penticton Lakeside Resort. Special rates for accommodation are available at the Golden Sands Resort.

The Sabbath before the spring festival season, Passover and Unleavened Bread, is a “Great” Sabbath. Traditionally, the scriptures read at this time of year included the book of Malachi. What important messages did God give to the priests through Malachi, that have great value for Christians today? Who are God’s priests in training today and what does He expect of those who serve Him?

Are You Prepared for Passover?

Passover Season: unleavened bread

Passover Season: unleavened bread

“Dokimazo” – Do you know what this means? As we prepare to rededicate ourselves to God’s service at the Passover, are we considering whether our worship of God is genuine. Have we examined ourselves so that we are proved to be real and authentic. God wants to know where our heart is, and whether we will obey Him. Are we prepared for Passover, and ready to take the symbols of this most meaningful ritual in a worthy manner.

Sacrifice and Passover

No Comments, Videos, by CGP.

 


sacrifice and passover
In ancient religions sacrifices were often made with the idea of “buying off the gods” and this has translated into a more modern notion that offering a sacrifice, somehow, makes it “right to do wrong.” But is that the scriptural reality, or are there some profound insights that Christians can discern from the lessons of Sacrifice and Passover? And does sacrifice really atone for intentional sins? The bible provides the answers.

Encouragement: Haggai Rebuilding the Temple

Comments Off, Videos, by CGP.

 


rebuilding the templeDo we “despise the day of small things” and are we discouraged because times have changed and the influence of the Church of God has waned? Haggai in writing to the people who had been called to rebuild the temple after its destruction, encourages them to do the work in spite of changing  circumstances, few labourers, and limited resources. What does this historic period teach us today? Haggai rebuilding the temple.

Balaam and the Church

Balaam and the Church

Balaam and the Church

Balaam and the church, what are the lessons for us today? The world is full of irony, like the former KGB head, Vladimir Putin, championing moral conservatism, or the Catholic church espousing religious freedom. Jeff recounts this very old story of double-mindedness, as seen in the biblical account of Balaam.

Goodness of God

Goodness of God

Goodness of God

When we look at our society are we seeing “good,” morally virtuous behaviour?  Is our world “good,” a thing of beauty and quality? Knowing that God is the source of all things that are good, both morally and qualitatively, how can we reflect God’s goodness when we walk with Him, though we live in a world that may seem unfamiliar with the goodness of God.  What we do is a result of who we are in our hearts and minds, whether good or bad. Will we choose to be good on the inside, as God is good, so we may produce good fruit?
