Are You Awake to God’s Promises?

Comments Off on Are You Awake to God’s Promises?, Videos, by CGP.


Are you awake to what God will be doing in the coming year? There are those who espouse ‘Christianity’ who do not believe that God will keep his promises. Or perhaps they think that the prophecies were already completed in some historical past. Do you know what God says and do you trust him to be the same yesterday, today and forever?
In a time of asymmetrical warfare our Western Democracies are under great strain. We need to ask ourselves whether our current dilemmas are the result of having forgotten God’s ways so that instead of walking fearlessly on his straight path we are stumbling in the darkness. Jesus warned about the false prophets caught up in their faulty predictions of the future, while also reminding us of the need to be prepared for his return – a return that will surely come.
So do we believe that God will yet fulfill the prophecies that he delivered to his people over the centuries – More

Still Faithful after All these Years

Comments Off on Still Faithful after All these Years, Sermons and Media, Videos, by CGP.


In our lifetime we have experienced conditions that were prophesied by Paul, Jude and Peter. We have lived through the rise and collapse of church organizations often the result of infighting, divisions and discontent among elders and brethren. It is at such times, when the church institutions and the world around us is crumbling into chaos, that we need to reflect on those foundational concepts that help us to continue to walk in faith with God.
Here are some questions to ponder:
Are we thoroughly grounded in the scripture with a sure knowledge of the conditions in the ‘latter days’ so we will not be overthrown in times of apostasy?
Are we standing firm in the truth so we will not be deceived by the ungodly, no matter what ‘miracles’ they claim to perform?
Are we committed to God and acting sincerely and without hypocrisy so that we are living our faith and patiently growing in love?
Are we convicted of the assurances that God gives us that blessings will come if we are walking with our Shepherd as he leads us in the good way?
Is our hope in God’s promised gift of eternal life unshakeable, and does it motivate us to do the good works that the Father has called us to perform?
Take a few minutes to join us and consider the words of exhortation from the scriptures that will help us in our walk of faith. More

Coming to God Against His Will?

Comments Off on Coming to God Against His Will?, Videos, by CGP.


Paul in writing to Timothy warned against becoming one of those people who had once believed but had turned away from the faith because they had been misled by hypocritical religious leaders. Recently, a major ‘Christian’ denomination has moved from the doctrinal position of ‘God does not bless sin’ to a more politically acceptable stance of ‘God does not turn away anyone.” These are irreconcilable concepts. In fact, this antinomian reasoning seems to fall into the category of the ‘way of Balaam’ that Peter and John told believers to avoid. So what was Balaam’s way and why is it still so destructive? What did that ancient soothsayer do and how is his example instructive to Christians who desire to walk with God?
This story has a lot to say about understanding God’s will, who is able to have a relationship with him and what must motivate our thought and action. Many Christians do not know what the scriptures say about what it means to love God or accomplish his will? They want to come to God, but they do not acknowledge the scriptures that reveal how we must love God, what it means to obey him, and under what conditions we are given the Holy Spirit that we might know God?
Consider the witness of the apostles Matthew, John. Paul and Peter in these matters and the implications for your personal walk with God.

Seasons for Everything

Comments Off on Seasons for Everything, Videos, by CGP.


It is challenging to navigate in our present world of extremes. But scriptures tell us there is a time and place for all things — a season for everything. The question is how do we discern the best course of action at the right time and place.
Consider the lessons that we can derive from God’s perspectives on the lives of Naboth and Ahab, or Gedaliah and Johanan. God counsels us to achieve an artful balance in all we do so we can have emotional and spiritual stability.
Paul gives us godly advice about how to set our priorities so that we might live a temperate life that honours God and encourages others. Listen to his words of wisdom about self-mastery and moderation and be inspired in your walk with God.

In the Image and Likeness of God

Comments Off on In the Image and Likeness of God, Videos, by CGP.


Why does God care about humanity? The answer to this question is found in part in the book of Genesis. But this is only the beginning of the story. Here God declared, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness and let him have dominion over the earth.” The Psalmist adds to our understanding of God’s purpose in that he created human beings with a glory that was a little lower than ‘elohim’ (God). Jesus in answering the religious leaders of his day, proclaimed that he was a son of God, and yet this should not have astounded them as it did. For Jesus made the same kind of bold declaration as the Psalmist in calling men ‘elohim’ or sons of God. John, James and Paul all added insights regarding Christ’s being the image of the Father and the firstborn son of God. But the Father has a plan to bring many more sons and daughters – made in his image – into his family. Knowing this basic truth these biblical writers offer us wisdom as to how we should live our lives now in preparation for this glorious future. View the message to learn more about our transformation into God’s image and likeness as his children. More

Comments Off on Chanukah — Feast of Dedication? What should Christians Know, Videos, by CGP.



Understanding the history of the people of God through the ages gives us perspective and helps us to discern the signs of the times. God wants us to remember the lessons of history and consider the lives of those individuals who remained faithful to God in perilous times.
History and prophecy inform us of God’s plan and give us vision so we can make those daily choices that will produce good fruit in our lives. Let us consider the history behind the Feast of Dedication that was celebrated by God’s people during the time of Jesus Christ’s ministry.

Chanukah’s Message: Present, Past and Future — Resist Evil

Comments Off on Chanukah’s Message: Present, Past and Future — Resist Evil, Videos, by CGP.


The world is trying to grapple with the events of the past few months in the Middle East, but this is nothing new. Our present situation has a powerful connection to events of the past and the prophecy of Daniel about the Seleucid Empire’s attempts to dominate Judea. And the question of good and evil is still the one that should be foremost in our minds. God warns us of the consequences of falling prey to the idea that good and evil are relative, or that good is evil and evil is good. More
