Comments Off on Truth or Tradition: Do We have Eyes to See?, Videos, by CGP.
The spring of the year brings to mind a host of spiritual realities, but do we have eyes to see them? We must discern between truth or tradition. There are those in the world who have “tuned” God out and are blind to spiritual realities. And some willfully so! They hold God and his ways in contempt. Having donned spiritual blinders, they are walking in darkness. Many in our cultural elite embrace their aggressively atheistic worldview with its twisted perception of reality. They refuse to acknowledge natural laws and human freedoms, while extolling the “virtues” of death — abortion, and euthanasia. They have chosen darkness instead of light. The have rejected truth and refused to countenance the evidence for intelligent design. Paul had experience with the “educated” of his day who also thought they were wise, yet could not see their own blindness. More
Comments Off on Why We Need Christ Our High Priest, Videos, by CGP.
The Role of High Priest
In the 21st century the concept of “High Priest” is lost to most people. Even among Christians, few know the function of Christ our high priest. In Jesus’ time the office of high priest had been corrupted, and was little more than a political/religious appointment by the Romans. In fact, there was such a great turnover in the high priest’s office that there were 27 high priests in the first hundred years CE. But as much as this role has been usurped, misappropriated, and maligned over the centuries it still has vital significance in God’s plan. There have been faithful high priests. And, the people of ancient Israel would have had a basic understanding of this important responsibility when it was established. Do you? More

The One and Only Way to Stop Mass Murders at School
All this past week most of the mainstream press has been pushing the idea that what is needed to stop today’s school shootings and other mass murders is to inaugurate effective, total gun control—which is to say, to confiscate all firearms from the American public. The idea is “no guns equals no murders.” President Trump, however, has called for arming teachers at schools, and to more tightly control the vetting process for buying guns. He would eliminate some types of firearms that facilitate a mass murder spree, and do a better job with handling the mentally ill. Will any of this work to really change the situation on the ground? Frankly, at this stage of the game, I have my doubts, because all those suggestions don’t get at the heart of the problem… Read more

Why the Messiah and Jerusalem are Stumbling Blocks to the World’s Leaders
O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, how is it that after so many thousands of years you can still command the attention of a Postmodernist, unbelieving global elite in the 21st Century? Could it be because the Biblical narrative that prophesies of something beyond the present world order scares the heck out of them? Read more…

Prophets — Truth or Lies
In our age of fake news, researchers at MIT admit that lies travel farther, faster, and deeper than the truth. But this is nothing new. In the time of Saul and Barnabus, Elymas Bar Jesus was a local purveyor of deceit, lies, and evil schemes. He held sway in the court of Sergius Paulus, the proconsul in Paphos, Cyprus. But Saul recognized him for what he was and ousted the false prophet, so the truth could be preached. Paul dealt with others in Rome and elsewhere who willingly exchanged the truth of God for lies. But, Paul’s advice to the Gentile believers was to reject the empty, foolishness of lies in order to embrace the truth. The truth would renew their minds and overcome spiritual blindness and apathy.
That Prophet is Prophesied by Moses
Paul hearkened back to Moses instructions when writing about false prophets and teachers. Moses warned the people to avoid the diviners, sorcerers, and mediums who dealt in lies and deception. Rather, the people of God were to follow the truth and be blameless. And, God promised that he would raise up a prophet who would teach them the truth. They were commanded to listen, for that prophet speaks for God.
That Prophet Speaks for God
Who was that prophet that would come and fulfill Moses’ prophecy? It was no mystery to the disciples of Christ. In his gospel account, John, made it clear that Jesus was the one who was sent to speak on the Father’s behalf. Unlike the religious leaders of the day, Jesus did not listen to the “Father of Lies.” Rather, Christ came from the Father of Light, to bring the truth that would set people free. The religious and civil elite wanted to kill him, because they could not bear the truth he was teaching. On trial for his life, Jesus made it abundantly clear to the Jewish authorities that he was “that prophet.” And he prophesied of his coming again in power to establish the Kingdom of God. This gives believers hope and confidence as they speak the truth in love to a world that is caught up in deception.

Who is Worthy?
What do the authors of the Narnia tales, and the Lord of the Rings have in common? C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien created powerful ‘biblical’ personalities and themes to drive their works of fiction. These men had a basic faith in the God of the bible and the purpose and plan that he would accomplish. God’s plan is a matter of public record in the scriptures. However, it has been ‘sealed’ and it’s message hidden. In vision the apostle John saw the sealed scroll that God the Father was holding. He cried when he realized no man was worthy to open the scroll and reveal its meaning. But there is someone who can open it. Do you know who is worthy? More
