Comments Off on Atonement — Forgive Us Our Debts as…, Videos, by CGP.
The Lord’s Prayer has interesting parallels to the themes of the day of Atonement. This is especially true when it comes to ‘forgive us our debts.’ Often we think of these debts as ‘sins’ — missing the mark or sins of commission. But it also has the sense of not having fulfilled a duty — sins of omission. We owe God for those times when we failed to do our duty, and yet, he is faithful to forgive these debts. But there is a caveat. He says he will forgive our debts to the degree that we are willing to forgive the debts of others. As his children, God is asking us to let go of the wrongs we have suffered, the debts that have not been paid to us, and the resentments we might be harbouring due to unfulfilled duties that we are owed.
This ties in directly with Atonement and the message of the Jubilee. More

Comments Off on Atonement: War in Heaven and Peace on Earth, Videos, by CGP.
The Day of Atonement has many meaningful messages that resonate over the millennia. The nature of man and society has not changed substantially though his physical circumstances and the challenges may have varied considerably. Atonement helps us to understand the spiritual battles that have been fought and to consider the prophecies of future warfare and their consequences. This day brings to our mind the darkness that the great spiritual deceiver has brought into the world, and the light that will repel the darkness at the Messiah’s return.
Join us in a journey through scripture to understand the epic battles, the faithful footsoldiers, and the final outcomes of this great spiritual warfare. More

What is old is new, Some questions do not change, and some answers remain the same. If you are concerned with keeping your life in tune with the biblical narrative, then it is time to thoughtfully reconsider this issue of holy time.
Does It Really Matter Which Days You Keep?
by Jeffrey H. Patton
In our worship of God the Father and Jesus Christ, should Christians keep traditionally popular, accepted days like Lent, Ash Wednesday, Good Friday, Easter, Whitsunday and Christmas? Or should we keep the days that the Bible talks about like Passover, Pentecost, and other strange sounding Old Testament festivals like the Feast of Trumpets, Day of Atonement, and Feast of Tabernacles?
Does it really matter which days we keep or choose NOT to keep? Why would anyone suggest that Christians should get their religious Holy Days out of the Old Testament? Hasn’t there been a total theological divorce between Old Testament and New Testament, law and grace, Judaism and Christianity? What is the Truth? More

Comments Off on What Do We Presume? Sins of Pride 2.0T, Videos, by CGP.
The Psalmist wrote extolling the virtues of God’s ways, while warning about the danger of presumptuous sins. The proud, the willful, and the presumptuous were those who ‘stepped out of bounds.’ They did not value God’s virtues, his laws, statutes and testimonies. On the other hand, God’s people both Jew and Gentile were to be known for their humility and service to God. So which category describes us? More

Comments Off on Suppressing the Truth of God’s Plan, Videos, by CGP.
The apostle Paul warned the believers about a great deception, that would have the effect of suppressing the truth.
He knew that many would be seduced or hoodwinked into turning their back on God and his word. There would be lawless people motivated by guile who would use counterfeit signs and miracles to deceive and destroy. So what is the antidote? More

Comments Off on Duty and the Royal Ruler, Videos, by CGP.
In rehearsing 70 years of the reign of Queen Elizabeth II many commentators wrote of her sense of duty and devotion to her people. Though monarchy is not the norm in our world, yet it is of vital concern in the scriptures. For the message of the gospel is one of a great King of Kings and his coming Kingdom.
Daniel envisioned the time in which the Messiah would return to earth and take up the throne of David. This theme of the return of the King to claim his Kingdom is reinforced by all the New Testament writers. So it is no wonder that God should provide guidance in his Word as to the duty of a King or Queen. More
