Version 2

Introduction: Solving the Mystery of the Ten Lost Tribes

The ultimate promise that God made to Abraham and his descendants was that they would inherit the world and eternal life. This promise was accepted by Abraham in an attitude of complete and total trust that our cynical age finds extremely hard to even begin to understanding, much less emulate it.

The story of Israel is the story of a single family that was chosen for divine service by the One who asserts that He created all humanity from one blood (cf. Acts 17:26). The Israelites were a people born by a series of divine miracles, as well as, circumstances common to the human condition. They were a “chosen” people, but in no way could they ever have been considered a “pet” people either in antiquity or now. After all, God is not a respecter of persons.

Judeo Christian – What do You Mean?

Comments Off on Judeo Christian – What do You Mean?, Videos, by CGP.

 

every word of GodSola Scriptura

Christians are sometimes confused by the term Judeo Christian. Judeo Christian does not mean Jewish Christian or Messianic Jew, so what does it mean?

Let me explain what Judeo Christian means, for those who are without background in the topic; the words Judeo Christian are most often used to describe the biblically based religious, moral, and ethical heritage of certain western societies. But there is a more complete definition of Judeo Christianity:

A belief system and lifestyle founded upon the principle of Sola Scriptura (by bible alone). The Holy Bible, in its entirety, (Hebrew and Greek scriptures) is a complete and divinely inspired compilation of books written for revelation, instruction, and reproof.
2 Timothy 3

God’s Plan for his Children

God has a plan that has been consistent through history as shown by the unified purpose of God’s teachings and by the personal examples of the faithful: from Abel to Christ and his apostles.

The Bible is a comprehensive life-map designed by God the Father and spoken by the Word to provide the path to a good physical life and the only path to eternal life through Christ, the Rock of our Salvation, YHVH, the Lord of Hosts and King of Kings. It contains historical eye witness accounts, memoire, poetry, teaching, and prophecy in one integrated package written over the centuries. It’s themes and purpose are consistent  and for those who read it’s message, believe it, and then act on it the promise is one of an abundant life walking in harmony with the Creator.

A Brief History of the Scripturalists

Judeo Christianity emerged into the English-speaking world during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I of Great Britain in the late 1500s, as part of the non-conformist Reformation movement. More

What is Our Core Identity? Where do We Belong?

    When Society Splinters – Where do We Belong

Is North American society at a major cultural turning point that will define or redefine our core identity? And what is our personal core identity? Where do we belong in a time of political, economic, and cultural upheaval? In the past century the world has experienced the ‘break-up’ of several once powerful nation-states into a multitude of warring civil groups. The core cultural identity of these areas was not sufficient to stop the splintering of society into multiple factions. And the end result for the individual was often catastrophic. Millions died and millions more became fearful and disillusioned. So this presents a question for Christians in times of political and social upheavals. Where do we belong and what is our core identity? More

Spiritual Warfare – Armour of God

Comments Off on Spiritual Warfare – Armour of God, Videos, by CGP.

 


armour of God banner

Paul gives us a detailed description of the armour we need to wage spiritual warfare. He warns us that we have an enemy who will attack at every opportunity, so we need to understand his tactics. We need to make the spiritual preparations to be able to take our stand in battle and be victorious.

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the [a]wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of [b]the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God;
Ephesians 6

Personal Responsibility – God’s Perspective

Dealing with Addictions

With the rising use of fentanyl, the issue of addiction and drug related death has made news headlines. And yet, there is a lot of controversy over the “harm reduction” strategies, and “safe-injection sites” that are touted as solutions to the problem. These methods lack a serious look at the issue of personal responsibility in solving problems of addiction. For the scoffers who are caught up in their destructive lifestyles, and for the “addict enablers” who out of compassion or duty continue to support people in their addictions, counsel from God’s word might fall on deaf ears. However, biblical instruction when given to a wise person will have the effect of helping them assume their personal responsibility in order to effect change – and live productive lives. So what does God have to say about this crisis? More

God’s Promises and Providence – God Will Provide

No Comments, Videos, by CGP.

 

Ruth and Naomi God providesThe question of how God works in the lives of his people is one that looms large. Those without faith in God look at the horrors of society and question whether God is at work at all. But we have biblical examples to help us realize the blessing of God’s promises and providence for those who serve him and love his ways.
The story of Lot and his wife provide an object lesson about God’s deliverance of those who trust him and the consequences of having our hopes and dreams tied up in the material world. The story of Ruth and Naomi gives us the hope that if we set our heart to follow God he will supply all of our needs.

The scripture says ‘all things work together for good, for those who love God and are called according to his purpose’ What does this mean in the context of the suffering in the world and the hope of God’s promises?

Civilization’s Lynchpin — The Fifth Commandment

No Comments, Videos, by CGP.

 

The fifth commandment unites the two key concepts of love for God and love for neighbour that provide the executive summary of God’s will for humanity. The fifth commandment is one of family loyalty, that is owed to God as our spiritual Father and Creator, and our parents as those who were our first caregivers. And it is the family that has provided the foundation for all civilized society.

Trapped at a Dead End? God Delivers

No Comments, Videos, by CGP.

 

 

There is Always Hope

We may feel trapped or enslaved due to circumstances beyond our control.But like our ancient spiritual ancestors we need to consider that God is able to deliver us. Even if we are stuck in a box canyon or dead end, we are not without hope. Paul admonishes us to consider the examples of Israel during their wilderness journey. They had been slaves, but the Lord God had freed them from Egypt and led them into the wilderness. And yet, when they faced challenges, they felt ‘boxed-in’ and fear overwhelmed them, they quickly reverted to their old ways of thinking and acting that had disastrous results. More

Passover - Faith and ObedienceForgiveness, Faith and Obedience – A Tale of Four Passovers

There are major differences between the Good Friday – Easter tradition and the biblical Passover- Unleavened Bread festival that relate to the issue of faith and obedience. Are we following the biblical instructions and ‘hitting the target’ or are we ‘missing the mark’ and continuing in sin. Are we disobedient like Adam who heard God’s instructions but did not do them? Or, are we following in Jesus’ footsteps who both listened to and performed all the the Father had asked him to do?

Forgiveness, Faith and Obedience — A Tale of Four Passovers

There are major differences between the Good Friday – Easter tradition and the biblical Passover- Unleavened Bread festival that relate to the issue of faith and obedience. Are we following the biblical instructions and ‘hitting the target’ or are we ‘missing the mark’ and continuing in sin. Are we disobedient like Adam who heard God’s instructions but did not do them? Or, are we following in Jesus’ footsteps who both listened to and performed all the the Father had asked him to do?

We demonstrate our obedience to God, in that having been forgiven, we step out in faith to do and to teach others to do God’s will in all matters. The stories relating to the Passover give us a powerful testimony of the need for faithful obedience. Moses had rehearsed all of God’s instructions to the Israelites. They were to kill a perfect lamb, put its blood around their doors, and be prepared to leave at a moment’s notice. This they did exactly as they had been instructed by God, and he protected them from the death angel that killed the Egyptian firstborn. But now that they were leaving Egypt — whether Israelite or Gentile — they were required to eat unleavened bread for the week. And there was a powerful spiritual lesson in this physical action. More

Boundaries to Respect — Teach ‘All’ Things

Comments Off on Boundaries to Respect — Teach ‘All’ Things, Videos, by CGP.

 

God’s Boundaries

The mission of the disciples of Christ was to go into the world and teach by word and example ‘all things’ that Jesus had taught. Today, we live in a society that is embracing values that stand in stark opposition to the truth of scripture, and those values that conform to reality as Jesus instructed.
As a result, we face a challenge similar to that of our ancestors in the faith who lived 2,000 years ago. Through the power of God’s spirit we must understand the boundaries that we must respect. We must determine those ideas and actions that we must resist at all costs — what is ‘unclean’  according to the Word of God. We must know what is acceptable to God — what is ‘clean.’ More

Preparing for Passover – Time for Self-Reflection

Christ's love for us

Preparing for Passover:

As we approach the Passover season the scriptures encourage us to consider God’s plans for us and our response. Are we preparing for Passover?

 


  • Do we understand our calling?
  • Have we made a commitment to forsake our sins and embrace God’s ways?
  • Have we gained a deeper appreciation for Christ’s sacrifice and forgiveness?
  • Do we look to Christ’s example as our guide to daily living?
  • Are we walking faithfully in covenant with the Father?

Are we doing the good works of loving our neighbour as Christ loves us?

23 For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you: that the Lord Jesus on the same night in which He was betrayed took bread; 24 and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” 25 In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.”

26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes.

27 Therefore whoever eats this bread or drinks this cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. 28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread and drink of the cup. 29 For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. 30 For this reason many are weak and sick among you, and many sleep. 31 For if we would judge ourselves, we would not be judged. 32 But when we are judged, we are chastened by the Lord, that we may not be condemned with the world. 1 Cor. 11

 


preparing for PassoverPaul and Passover — A Reliable Witness

Paul’s Testimony about preparing for Passover is something that even atheist and agnostic scholars acknowledge as solid historical evidence of Jesus’ life and ministry. At this time of year it is important to consider the foundation of our faith as Christians. So it may come as a surprise that even secular historians give credence to the veracity and trustworthiness of the gospels and Paul’s writings. Scholars support the eye-witness reports of scripture as authentic accounts of historic events. So let’s consider Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection as recounted by these faithful witnesses.
