Comments Off on What Do We Presume? Sins of Pride 2.0T, Filed in 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 Duty and the Royal Ruler, Filed in 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

Ezra and Nehemiah
Ezra the scribe had returned to Jerusalem with a valuable cargo of precious vessels to restore the temple worship. But he was greatly dismayed by the moral and spiritual state of the people. It would seem that they had fallen back into many of the harmful practices that had led to their captivity in the first place. Eventually, as a result of dealing with dangers without, and betrayal within the community, Ezra knew he would need help. He understood the importance of rebuilding the walls, both literally and metaphorically. They were needed to protect a pure relationship with God and defend against corrupting outside influences. More
