The Everlasting Covenant (Genesis 17)
What does it take to have a spiritual relationship with God the Father and the Son? What is the yoke that Christ asks us to be willing to bear in order to be in step with Him? How is it possible for physical people to have a relationship with the Eternal – an Everlasting Covenant? The scriptures make this understanding clear for those who have been called by God to have their hearts and minds open to see the truth. Follow Jeff Patton and open your Bible as he examines the Everlasting Covenant through a series of sermons on the nature of our covenantal relationship with the Creator of the universe.
The Nature of God (Romans 1:20)
Can we know God? The apostle Paul makes it clear that through a knowledge of the scriptures and the revelation of God’s spirit we can know those things about God that have been revealed for our learning.
Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,
Nor have entered into the heart of man
the things which God has prepared for those who love him
But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit 1Corinthians 2:9-10
Vision and Mission (Matthew 28:17-20)
What is the work, the mission of a Judeo Christian? What is the vision that keeps us going from day to day and empowers us with a clear view of the future? These sermons explore the scriptures and provide insight into the work and witness God has called us to perform.
The Gospel (Luke 21:31)
The gospel was central to the message preserved for us by the gospel writers; it was the good news of the Kingdom of God, that Christ and the disciples preached. What was that gospel and what were the false gospels that were extant in the time of Paul that he warned believers to avoid? And how important is the gospel in the life of Judeo Christians?
Salvation – The Path to Eternal Life (Revelation 22:12-14)
Our walk with Christ as our guide is like a mountain hike from trailhead to summit. There are many steps along the way and challenges to be overcome, yet we are assured of success if we stay on the path and follow our guide, our elder brother who sets the pace for us. Salvation is not an event but a process, that begins when we commit to walking in covenant with our Creator and our heavenly Father. These sermons explore the many facets of this exciting spiritual journey.
The Ten Commandments (Exodus 20:2-17)
The Ten Commandments are central to Judeo Christian beliefs. This page briefly examines Jesus’ Teaching on the subject and provides links to a series of video sermons by Jeff Patton examining the commandments and the wide reaching implications in a Christian’s life.
God’s Holy Days – His Annual Sabbaths (Leviticus 23)
The annual Sabbaths provide the Judeo Christian believer with yearly reminders of God’s plan for humankind and the hope that we have of spiritual rest in the Kingdom of God. Each Holy Day is like a signpost along the journey to the Kingdom, teaching us about our relationship with the Father and the Son and encouraging us to worship God with thankfulness for His enduring faithfulness and loving kindness.
God’s Sabbath Day (Genesis 2:2-3)
The Sabbath was made for man. It is a weekly reminder, initiated at Creation, of God’s work through history in all places and across all time. He has preserved a holy time for all people who worship Him as the Creator and Life-giver. His people willingly put their personal pursuits aside in order to focus their whole being on their relationship with the Lord of the Sabbath, on His holy day.
Fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-25)
But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!
Those who belong to Christ Jesus have nailed the passions and desires of their sinful nature to his cross and crucified them there. Since we are living by the Spirit, let us follow the Spirit’s leading in every part of our lives.
Prophecy and History (2 Peter 1:19-21)
“And we have the word of prophecy made more sure; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day-star arise in your hearts: knowing this first, that no prophecy of scripture is of private interpretation.For no prophecy ever came by the will of man: but men spake from God, being moved by the Holy Spirit.”
Christian Growth (Ephesians 4:12-16)
Scriptures use the analogy of human growth from child to adult to explain spiritual growth. As Christian’s we must grow into the spiritual likeness of our Father, and become spiritually mature in heart and mind. This is a process that takes a lifetime, but begins at baptism when our past life is buried and we begin life anew. These sermons focus on different aspects of Christian growth.
Avoiding the Pitfalls (Galatians 6:1-9)
Living life in covenant with God and according to Christian ideals can be difficult in a world that rejects the Creator and His teachings. We need to be aware of the spiritual dangers or pitfalls that we face each day, so we can avoid them. The sermons in this section help us to be prepared to face these challenges.
