Who is Your Rock from cogwebcast on Vimeo.
In Japan, siesmologists and engineers were astounded by the amount of destruction caused by “liquefaction” in areas where buildings were built on fill or sandy soils. In the gospels Christ reiterates this spiritual message that building on sand leads to destruction. Jeff Patton asks you to consider, “What is the rock that you, as a Christian should build your life on, so you have a sure foundation?” The answer will present some surprises to those who adhere to traditional teaching, rather than sola scriptura.

Christ the Wave Sheaf
If we celebrate Passover and the spring festival season and delve into their roots in scripture we gain a great deal of understanding that most Christians miss concerning Christ, the wave sheaf. Jeff Patton relates this special ceremony to the events surrounding Christ’s resurrection and it’s meaning for all Christian’s who go to the mercy seat of God for help in time of need.

So what is real success? Christ turned the notions of his day upside-down by declaring that the disciples’ view of “leadership,” patterned after the Roman model, was erroneous. Jeff talks about a Christian perspective on “servants” and the significance of Christ’s example of footwashing to Christians who are observing the Passover season.

The story of scripture is a “good news” “bad news” story. That is why the apostle Paul admonishes us to examine ourselves. This self-reflection is of special importance prior to our renewing of our covenant at Passover and our partaking of the symbols of Christ’s sacrifice that ratifies our covenant with the Father. Jeff Patton takes a closer look at Christ’s role of mediator and our hope that is confirmed through the covenant promises.

God has great expectations of those who serve Him and desire to draw near to him. Jeff Patton takes you on a journey through the scriptures describing a time during the Persian Empire not unlike our own, when the people of God were divided but a work needed to be done. It is amazing what God will do through those who draw near to him in obedience to his divine instructions.
