God is One and God is a Family

Shema Yisrael Yahweh Elohim Echad Yahweh Hear O Israel, the Lord is God, One is the Lord [Jews call it the SHEMA] I’d rather not wrangle about the Hebrew grammar and syntax… the gist of it is “there is one God, YHWH [the LORD]”. That much most people agree upon. Deuteronomy 6:4 the SHEMA trips people up. Misunderstanding this verse and this concept can take you right out of the Church of God! So, who needs to know about this stuff? You do [1 John...

Keeping the Sabbath Holy

1/15/2018
More
The purpose of this message is not to prove the Sabbath should be kept but rather to focus on what to do on the Sabbath… and how do we approach it as a day that is holy. The Sabbath is one of the ten commandments of God our creator. The placement of the Sabbath in the middle of God’s essential instructions for humanity indicates to us that it is very significant. Deuteronomy 5:12-15keep it holy, do no work… reason: a remembrance of God’s deliverance AND a remembrance of what they were...

God's Command and Instructions For Church Services

1/10/2018
More
Many people think they can make it on their own... just them and God... "I'm spiritual but not religious", "I love God but I don't like organized religion". Yet God clearly intends His people to gather together. What do the scriptures say? We can start with a direct instruction on the matter from Hebrews 10: 24-25 And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as...

Be Reconciled To One Another

1/10/2018
More
Even though we have all rebelled against our Father creator, disregarded His commands… to the point where we all were considered His enemies… God is graciously willing to offer everyone forgiveness and reconciliation. He makes peace with us so we are no longer to be considered enemies, and He grants us access to the divine nature and eternal life. This happens because of God’s forgiving nature and His loving desire to see us develop our full potential: To grow into the fully mature mind...

The Enemies of God... Who Are They?

1/7/2018
More
If I ask you, “does God have enemies” you might think first of Satan, who popular imagination presents as God’s arch enemy, but what about people? Are there human beings who are God’s ENEMIES! That might conjure up an image of some fiendish villain like Adolph Hitler, or perhaps an angry atheist media celebrity sputtering forth with accusations, demeaning jokes, or sarcasm. The painful reality is that there are far more enemies of God than you could have ever imagined. Romans 8:7 the...

The Kingdom of God Vs. The Kingdom of Heaven

1/5/2018
More
There is no real difference between the kingdom of God and the kingdom of heaven. The two phrases are simply two different ways to indicate the same thing… a kingdom or system of government that is ruled by God. Examine the scriptures about the coming kingdom of God... as told by Jesus, the apostles and the Church. He said to them, “I must preach the good news of the kingdom of God... for I was sent for this purpose”. You owe it to yourself to learn more about what Jesus Himself said...

Dating Marriage and Friendship

1/5/2018
More
The subject of dating and attitudes toward human sexuality must be discussed in the context of marriage. Marriage is the foundational relationship of human life. Marriage affects our biological viability, defines a positive social culture, and is the stabilizing factor for all forms of human government. Key Features of Godly Marriage: Genesis 2:24 marriage is designed by the Creator of Humanity as a separate and distinct organizational unit. Ecclesiastes 9:9 marriage is designed to...

Tithing is an Act of Worship

12/31/2017
More
Our world has some serious problems. Humanity seek to solve them through better technology, better distribution of material goods… and lots of wishful thinking. The real answers to humanity’s quest for meaningful and joyful living are spiritual not material. Those answers are available within the message of the kingdom of God and Jesus Christ. The creator makes that knowledge available in a written document [bible]. Understanding of what that document is actually there to teach us is...

Financial Security and Peace of Mind

12/28/2017
More
Concerns about money and wealth dominate relationships among nations, national politics, our businesses and jobs, our families, and our own internal dialog. We highly esteem the acquisition of wealth yet it ends up weighing us down like an unbearable burden… either obsession with how much we have or worries about what we lack. Without the wisdom and perspective we get from God and His word the place and position of wealth in life gets out of balance. Your Creator knows that money,...

Guidelines For Understanding Biblical Prophecy

12/27/2017
More
What is the point of prophecy? On one hand people don’t like uncertainty… where will I get the money for rent next month?... will the stock market crash and wipe out my retirement savings? … will my son get home safely tonight? On the other hand many of us dislike the idea of a future where everything is already decided. Statements like: “I have no choice in the matter”… “its inevitable”… “I can’t change anything”, are statements of despair not confidence. God’s word gives us a way of...

How To Honor Your Parents & Why

12/24/2017
More
God our Father has placed the principle of honoring our parents within His 10 commandments Exodus 20:12, Deuteronomy 5:15. So we know it’s a highly important matter to Him. Yet its sometimes hard to be certain of exactly what is expected in fulfilling God’s 5 commandment. We’re going to look at what is expected under ideal circumstances... and why. Also, we’ll look at what might be expected under less than ideal circumstances, even rotten circumstances… and why. If one’s parents are...

Prophecy Is For All Nations And Peoples

12/17/2017
More
The prophetic portions of God’s word give the nation of Israel a lot of attention. Is He playing favorites? Is He ignoring all the other nations and people on earth? 3,500 years back people believed gods were local. Such gods had jurisdiction only over a particular territory or a particular race. When you went to a different place you had better make an effort to appease the god of that section of country to gain their favor. A mindset that even Israel struggled with. The God of Abraham,...

The Role of Promises in Biblical Prophecy

12/13/2017
More
A promise from God is a prophecy from God. If God says He is going to do something you can be sure He will do it. Not only is your Creator faithful and reliable… He wants you to enjoy the feeling of security in His faithfulness… and He wants to enjoy your confidence in Him. Trust & Confidence: the foundation of a healthy relationship. God’s word speaks His promises to you [and to all humanity]… from beginning to end. Genesis 3:15 God’s first promise to humanity is a prophecy directed at...

How to Love Fellow Members in God’s Church

12/6/2017
More
Can one person make a difference in our congregation? Can one family make a difference in our congregation… setting an example that inspires others? The answer is yes. When a person begins really trying, and making an effort there may be some snags long the way: Also, a person’s enthusiasm might outweigh their wisdom [their efforts may be clumsy]… but if they are trying to please God He looks at their attitude more than on their accomplishments. We are pleasing to god when we are...

Marriage Is A Spiritual Relationship

12/3/2017
More
Human marriage reflects the spiritual relationship between Christ and the Church. Even though we live out our marriages in the flesh, marriage is a spiritual relationship as much as it is a physical relationship… and it’s a relationship that is desirable and purposeful. Has God Given Us Instructions to Follow For Marriage? Or, are we left on our own to figure the rest of it out? Are we left wondering what God really intended? The answer is: God our creator has indeed given us sound...

Jesus' Example of Prayer

11/27/2017
More
I like biographies. I learn about history through the lens of a person’s life. Scripture does not give us much information about people. A few personalities have a fair bit of coverage… Abraham, David, Daniel, Paul. But what we have is bare bones… facts, snippets of dialogue, what was said, record of key actions taken. The scriptures don’t often delve into the motives, emotions of persons and personalities... ex. Why is this incident recorded and many others not? But we can often look at...

Grief is Part of the Human Experience

11/24/2017
More
1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 does this mean we should not allow ourselves to be sad when faced with the loss of a friend, comrade and brother? We know they have a future. We know they will be resurrected. We know we will see them again. Why are we still sad? Is our sadness a weakness of faith… a pull of doubt against our confidence? What is Grief? Grief can be hard to explain. It’s a powerful emotion – often it’s a set of emotions which can be simultaneous and conflicting. We may experience...

The Rise of Lawlessness

Over a billion people consider themselves christian. Most often they are born into it. The family may be church goers… they may live in a society where bible and church are cultural norms... perhaps christianity is the state religion. Current data tells us christianity is still the largest religious group on earth. Somewhere between 1-2 billion are loosely categorized, christian. This vast group of people have a wide variety of divergent teachings, but have some core teachings in common....

Falling Away From the Truth Begins

11/21/2017
More
It has been foretold that a mighty deception will settle like a veil over human history. The veil will cover and hide the truth of God… the whole world would be led astray, the truth will be hidden, the way will be narrow and few will find it, many would hear the call of the message but few would be chosen. Doesn’t this seems contradictory to the accepted world history of a church, a religion, aggressively spreading and progressively growing over the centuries. Spreading and growing until...
