Obey the Authorities?

Comments Off on Obey the Authorities?, Videos, by CGP.

 

Does the bible offer conflicting advice as to whether we should obey civil or state authorities or not? Consider the advice of the Paul who lived in Rome and offered wisdom to the brethren in Rome about living quiet and peaceful lives under the rule of a pagan regime. Consider the wisdom of Peter and the other apostles who challenged the authority of the ruling elite in Judea. How do we reconcile these stories and draw conclusions about our relationship as Christians to the state authorities in our locale at this time in history. The bible provides us with the answers we need to make wise choices as to whether we obey the authorities. More

DAY 1 October 10, 2022

rejoice in the feastRejoice at the Feast:
Whether we have the blessing of fellowshipping on God’s Holy Days in a place he has chosen or whether we are home alone, God gives us all a command. During these special times of year that God sets apart as Holy, we have been given a command to rejoice. But sometimes this is not easy! And as we celebrate we need to consider God’s admonition that “everyone” should rejoice. There is a responsibility to care for the needs not only of our family, but of our servants, the foreigners, the orphans and the widows. God’s festivals are a blessing as we rejoice in God’s goodness. But they are also a duty.

Why is Deuteronomy Vital for Christians?

Comments Off on Why is Deuteronomy Vital for Christians?, Videos, by CGP.

 

Traditionally, the book of Deuteronomy was read orally to the people of Israel during the Feast of Tabernacles. There was a command to read it every seven years so each generation would be versed in the laws of the land. But what is the significance for Christians? You may be surprised to learn that while being tempted by Satan, Jesus countered Satan’s insinuations with the phrase, “It is written.” Then Jesus proceeded to quote from the book of Deuteronomy as his authoritative source for setting priorities and determining what was true.

Atonement — Forgive Us Our Debts as…

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

Atonement: War in Heaven and Peace on Earth

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

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
