The beginning of the fall festival season and the final harvest of ingathering is heralded by the blowing of trumpets. This Holy Day has multiple historic and prophetic meanings. This holy time is the beginning of the ten days of national repentance and reconciliation called the Days of Awe that are completed on the Day of Atonement. It begins the 15 day ascent to Jerusalem, memorialized in the Psalms of Ascent, as the people journeyed up to Jerusalem to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles (Succoth). And it looks forward to the coming of the Messiah, to destroy those who destroy the earth and to bring peace and justice to all who look longingly for His return.
Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 24 “Speak to the children of Israel, saying: ‘In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a sabbath-rest, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation. 25 You shall do no customary work on it; and you shall offer an offering made by fire to the Lord.’” Leviticus 23
Jesus often spoke in parables. These stories had obvious meaning to all who listened. They were “agricultural” lessons that were part of their daily lives. But, there was a hidden message, too. The parables revealed the mystery of the Kingdom. Yet, it was only discerned by the few who “had ears to hear.” And who had “ears to hear,” but those people God was calling into a relationship with Him. Those who were willing to change their lives. Those who would turn from lawlessness to embrace God’s teachings. They were the wheat. So, who were the weeds? More

Judge or Judge Not?
One Scripture Is Insufficient
Many people today say, “Don’t judge me!” Others quote Jesus, saying, “Judge not that you be not judged.” But is that all that Jesus had to say about the matter? Is that a blanket statement prohibiting judgment? Or, is there more to the story? The leaders of Isaiah’s day, who were caught up in lies and deception, were quick to attack the prophet. He responded to their mocks with the adage, “Here a little, there a little.” For, they had totally missed the point of God’s message. More

The Future of Family – What the Stats Show
Family is considered a “public good.” Why? Because of the many societal benefits of stable marriages and strong families. But the future of family may look bleak as many begin to embrace “family diversity,” a euphemism for family “breakdown.” Recent surveys seem to reinforce what has long been believed about the positive impact of strong families on health, education, and culture. Many still believe that the future of family is a key element in building ideal societies.
Where Did Family Begin
According to the account in Genesis, the human family was the product of the mind and genius of God — the Father. But it was the one who became Jesus, who like a potter, worked the clay to form the first humans. Thus the scriptures make it evident that they worked together. They create man “in our likeness.” They were created male and female to become one — to create a family. They were created in the “image” of their Maker – to fulfil a purpose. We were created to look like God. But we also were to become like God — having his heart and mind. Our families were to be patterned after this divine model. God made this clear when he called Abraham to walk with Him.
Abraham, Moses, and The Family Plan
God made promises to Abraham and Moses, but these promises were rooted in the future of family.
Abraham was chosen because God knew that he would teach his family. And as a result, all of the families of the earth would be benefitted. Moses, taught the people that the role of family was to teach children the way of God…every day, at every teachable moment. These teachings are as valid today for Christians, the spiritual descendants of Abraham, as they were when they were originally inspired. The future of family is bright, for God has an eternal purpose for His family.

Labouring in the Gospel
Sorting Truth from Error
In a world of false messaging, and secular “gospels” that can’t help but produce dystopian outcomes, what does “labouring in the gospel” mean? Christians are called to “labour” in order to fight for godly values — Judeo-Christian values. Daniel prophesied of a world where the godless would rule. False teaching would predominate. Yet, at the same time, the spiritually attuned would need to be strong. They would need to take action to continue to teach the truth. In a time of moral relativism, half-truths, and outright deceptions, it requires persistence to continue to teach those who are still willing to listen to the gospel of truth. More

Is the Bible Fake News or Good News.
Skeptics and Fake News
We live in an age of skepticism and the target of many skeptics is God, and the veracity of his Word. The Bible has come under attack as “lacking historicity” or not being true to the “record of archaeology.” But is this fact, or just more fake news. Recently, researchers have published their findings regarding the presence of Canaanite genetics in modern nations in the Middle East. They boldly asserted that these findings contradict direct statements from scripture. But did they get their facts straight? And does the archaeological and genetic evidence confirm or refute the biblical accounts? More
Comments Off on Is Biblical Faith Rational?, Filed in Videos, by CGP.
Faith is the Foundation
Faith is the foundation of our spiritual life, but is biblical faith rational? We are physical beings limited to knowing our universe through our five senses and the machines we have created to extend those senses. Our perception of reality is limited to the material. The bible on the other hand views what we can “see” with our senses as “temporary.” According to the scripture, the eternal reality is something we cannot see except through faith. This spiritual dimension is the true reality. Our “reality” physical life as we experience it, is like a mere two dimensional representation of the greater reality. So is this rational? More
