The Creator of the Universe deserves your attention... unlike the attention hogs in this world God doesn't want anything from you... He wants to give to you... the way of love and peace, eternal life, an everlasting inheritance. But none of those good outcomes are going to come your way if you do not give Him your concentrated attention.

When David was bringing the Ark of the Covenant back to Jerusalem after many years of absence he and those who where with him were not paying careful attention to God's instructions! God struck down Uzzah when he reached out his hand to touch the ark.

It got David's attention!

3 Principles of Paying Attention
1. 2 Peter 1:19 listen to God's servants
2. Pray to Understand God's Direction
3. Pay Attention Long Term

Don’t Be Too Proud To Pay Attention. The Creator of the Universe would like you attention.

Through the holy spirit we can become begotten and born again as children of the Creator of the Universe. While we are still children we are being trained for important roles in the coming kingdom of God where we are to be seated with Christ share the glory of God.

That training involves putting on the mind of Christ until we mature into the fullness of Christ. When He returns we will enjoy the redemption of our bodies unto spirit and the gift of eternal life.

When we reach full maturity we shall be given the full rights of sonship in God's family and designated as heirs along with Christ. In this way the meek shall inherit the earth and all things.

Ephesians 2:8 tells us that it is by "grace we are saved". So, it is worth our time to grow in our understanding of what God's grace is and how it works.

Is grace simply God's unmerited pardon for sin?
What does the word charis mean?
Why is the word sometimes translated "favor"?

1 Peter 5:12 We are also told there is a true grace and therefore a false grace. We want to make sure we are growing in the true grace of God.

Every human being who has ever lived will be judged. You, me, the man down the street, Europeans, Asians, Africans, Christians, Muslims, and Buddhists. People who died last week and people who died 3,000 years ago.

Various non-biblical cultures have their own ideas about life after death. Christians, Jews, Muslims have their ideas about death. Without recounting all the variations the basic concept is that a person will be judged after they die and receive some sort of reward, or punishment based on what they did in this life.

Most of what is taught about the afterlife and in particular about judgment is foolish non-sense.

The only reliable source of information regarding the afterlife and in particular about judgment is the bible. Many people think they know what the bible says about judgment but really don't. The average person's belief about what they think the scriptures say has more in common with human folk-tales that the actual recorded word of God.

Today we are going to review the biblical teaching on judgment.

The wanderings of Israel in the wilderness for 40 years are recorded for us as a lesson and a warning. God does not want us to make the same mistakes they made.

His desire is that we learn to live not by bread alone but by every word of God. To this end we are given the bread from heaven through Jesus Christ. The manna given to Israel in the wilderness did not lead them to everlasting life.

Specifically we are to be on guard against: idolatry, sexual immorality, testing God, and murmuring against God. These warnings are illustrated in the record of the golden calf, the seduction of the Moabite women, Israel's cries for water, and the rebellion of Korah.

The Day of Covering is the 5th annual holy observance of God's festival sequence is a day we have given the name "day of atonement".

That name is a somewhat figurative English rendering invented in the 1,500s to try and describe a biblical concept alien to our own culture. A literal interpretation of the Hebrew Yom Kippur is "day of covering".

As a word picture it summons up covering something over with bitumen, pitch or asphalt. The idea being that whatever is underneath is completely and irrevocable covered, forgotten, out of sight.

Today we are going to discuss what is covered over and why. We start with the old testament instructions for this day:

✅ For the high priest - a covering and cleansing ritual he was to perform on behalf of the people for sins they might have committed unknowingly, in ignorance Hebrews 9:7 [Leviticus 4]. This ceremony includes a goat called the azazel.

✅ For the average person - a day of fasting and humbling ourselves before God.

Watch the video to find out more about the atonement ceremony found in Leviticus 16 and its relationship to Revelation 20.

Leviticus 23:23-25 the feast of trumpets marks the beginning of the 7th month. It is the beginning of the year which is why it is often called Rosh Hashanah meaning "head [of the] year'. The biblical name for this holiday is Yom Teruah, literally "day of shouting or blasting".

The trumpets we associated with first of the fall holy days… are war trumpets, calling troops to battle. However, the trumpets are also a proclamation of rejoicing, and victory.

The trumpets of this day look forward to the trumpets that will sound when Christ returns to resurrect those who are His and usher them into life everlasting. This victory is for the person who overcomes... who masters and controls his or her own spirit. Who regulates what they do by God's command. Who submits to God.

The feast of trumpets is a day of war and turmoil. For those who are in Christ it is also a day of rejoicing, a day of reminder, a day of victory, and a day of new beginnings.

The pouring out of the holy spirit of God on all peoples and nations signaled a dramatic change in the way God's work would be accomplished in this world.

The date was Pentecost 31 A.D. and after that the world would never be the same. It was the beginning of the final age of human history which could be called the age to the Church.

The people of God called from all nations, races, and tongues would now serve as the chosen people of God taking the place of Israel.

But how long will the age of the church last?
Are we approaching the end of this age?
Is a new age about to begin?

There is no prayer our Creator is unable to hear… He is all knowing and all seeing. God also has all power over all things so He is not limited in what He can do in response.

God has the ability to hear all prayers but obviously does not grant all requests made in prayer.

Three key factors will be discussed:
1️⃣ Submission to god's will and His authority in your life
2️⃣ Make salvation, resurrection and eternal life you top priority
3️⃣ Remove anything that might hinder your prayer

Jesus gave us His command to love one another. Its a foundational instruction that is also known as the royal law of love: to love God with all our heats and all our minds, and to love our neighbor as ourselves.

This the answer He gave when asked "what is the greatest commandment in the law"?

Without a doubt LOVE is the very heart of the Christian belief system. But what is love? What does it look like? How can I know it when I see it? Is there anything I can do to walk in loving mindset?

The 10 Commandments Define Love

For love to be a helpful guide to life it must be defined and given actionable features. The 10 commandments of God are the beginning of creating such a definition. We must build on that foundation... but the 10 commandments is where we start.

https://www.ucg.org/bible-study-tools/booklets/is-there-really-a-devil

The Church of God is at war with Satan... because Satan has declared war against us. We are his number one enemy because we carry on the work of Jesus Christ in exposing Satan's presence, his devices of deception, and his agenda.

He is indeed the prince of this world, the "god" of this age, and our adversary along with the other demonic spirits. In this message we explore 3 tactics used by Satan:

1. to divide and conquer
2. to confuse with false teaching masquerading as an angel of light
3. direct temptation

The weapons of our spiritual warfare are the word of truth, and the holy spirit of God. Through these we no longer need to live in fear of the power of death.

Your attitude towards the bible can help or hinder your level of biblical understanding. To truly understand and receive the fullness of God's revelation of knowledge and truth we must approach the scriptures with an attitude of humility and respect.

1. Pray for understanding and act on what you learn, be a doer of the word

2. Keep and open mind - be wiling to change your opinions and behaviors, have the mindset of a little child who is eager to learn.

3. Seek instruction and correction

4. Accept the inspiration of the entire bible - see it as the inspired word of God, God breathed

5. Accept the evidence of inspiration - its internal consistency, the proofs of archaeology and prophecy

6. Conform your beliefs to scripture not human traditions

The bible is more than a book, more than a historic document, more than a cultural icon. The bible is God's communication to you, to all mankind. As such it demands you approach it with a proper attitude.

Humbly seek understanding [in both study and prayer]. Humbly be willing to admit error. Humbly seek instruction and course correction. Respectfully accept the bible as the word of God. In respect and fear let it change the way you see reality, and how you behave.

The bible is still a very popular book. It is generally revered and respected. Most households own a copy. But it remains unread.... sort of like a family, or cultural heirloom. That might even be the case with you.

7 Steps To Remember:
1. Plan Time For Regular Study
2. Let The Bible Interpret Itself
3. Study Topics - Dig Deeper
4. Use Study Aids: Concordance, Lexicons etc
5. Read the Whole Bible: Use a bible Reading Plan
6. Compare Different Bible Translations KJV, NIV, ESV
7. Seek Guidance From God's Church & Ministry

Once we have established the importance of actually reading the bible on a daily basis we also need to have some guidelines for how to interpret the bible and discover what God is saying to us.

The great tribulation is also known as the time of Jacob's trouble. It is referred to in the book of Daniel, the book of Revelation, and the olivet prophecy of Matthew 24.

It is a distinct period of time lasting 1260 days, or 42 months, or 3.5 years (also phrased as a time, times and half a time).

In Revelation it is also known as the 5th seal of the 7 seals. During the tribulation the church of God will be persecuted, the beast power will rise, and the two witnesses will deliver the final warning from God.

Scripture is full of examples of praise and worship toward our Father and creator. We also have explicit instruction that we should offer praise and worship toward God. Praise and worship is an important feature of our walk with God.

Have you ever wondered why that is so?

How Can You Fight Anxiety?

An anxious mind is concerned that they are simply not up to the task… that they will let everyone down, they will be weighed in the balances and found wanting etc.

To that, scripture says “nope, don’t be so focused on yourself… don’t be so sure that success or failure is all in your hands”.

Humility before God recognizes this truth and uses it to fight anxiety.

God's spirit adds something to your life called Prautes. English words you could use to try to convey the meaning of Prautes might include: gentleness, acceptance, submission, humility, calm. However, none of these words conveys the full sense of the word.

Vine's Expository Dictionary defines of prautes as: an attitude toward God [state of mind], submitting one's self to God, not resisting God, confident in God's presence, authority, and power. Prautes gives calmness of spirit from mental focus which is not on self, or prioritizing personal desires.... Prautes seeks and wants what the Creator of life desires. Prautes is is confidence that God is in charge, and acceptance that God is in charge.

English words you could use to try to convey the meaning of Prautes might include: gentleness, acceptance, submission, humility, calm

The more I looked into prautes… the more I wanted it as part of my thinking. I hope you will too.

The “kindness” referred to in Galatians 5:22 can be understood as: help, service, generosity, assistance, even words, rendered to another person not in accordance with what they deserve or have earned but as an active expression of mercy & grace...

A.showing outgoing concern for their well-being
B.Showing our own putting on of Godly character

For an explanation of how I arrived at this extended definition please watch the message.

Goodness is not understood [perceived] by what we don’t do. We cannot become more like God, or Christ, simply by eradicating sin.

Developing Godliness involves growing the traits and habits of GOODNESS. To have good things flowing out from you. The active spirit of the Father and Christ is there to help you!

Goodness is the understanding of what things are good and conversely... what things are evil. This understanding begins with the commandments of God.

Finding joy in your life's journey is not the same as finding happiness, although the words are used in the same way.

Happiness depends on external events that are happening all around you. Joy is not dependent on anything except you.

Joy is a gift your creator wants to give you. Its a fruit or product of the holy spirit He is willing to put within you.

What can you do to find more joy?

Jesus Christ is our Passover and His death saves us from the penalty of death. But, that is not the end of the story! Its actually the beginning of an amazing and astounding sequence of transformation:

➤Salvation from death
➤Growth into the fullness of Christ
➤Resurrection to life everlasting spirit born life

These are the steps of God's plan for humanity. A plan that begins with the Passover... but then followed up with the holy days that come afterwards and picture what comes next.

There are some basic errors that keep us from fully appreciating each of the holy days as a separate and distinct event. In this video we will look at how the distinction between the Passover and the Days of Unleavened Bread has been blurred AND why it is important to keep them separate and distinct.

We are instructed in the book of Corinthians to examine ourselves before we take the Passover. When we undertake this spiritual inventory of ourselves we learn many lessons about ourself.

Jesus prepared himself for the Passover in a manner that provides us with a good template to apply to ourselves. The message offers 7 lessons to consider while examining and spiritually preparing yourself for the Passover.

Some people grow up knowing the truth, knowing God's plan, knowing our potential to have a place in it... and yet treat it as no big deal, they never really commit or buy in. I have watched many such people end up rejecting the truth, or resenting it because it interferes with the cares of life they become attached to.

This video takes a look at the passing of the covenant blessings and promises to Jacob. Of Isaac's two sons Jacob was the one who cared enough to hold on to what could be his and never let go.
