There have always been those who left the Church of God because of numerous reasons. Not everyone who attends Church services is part of the Church of God. Still, membership in the true Church of God is necessary for salvation. This sermon shows what is the Church of God; who leads and directs it; and why one must not forsake the Church of God, if one wants to inherit eternal life.
Paul admonishes us to take the sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God. This is a vital part of the armor of God. Paul does not refer to a physical sword, and when we take the spiritual sword, we must know what God’s Word is; how God’s Spirit motivates us; and why we must speak and do the Word of God. Only then will we be able to conquer Satan and his servants.
Jesus said that all the Law and the Prophets hang on the two great commandments of loving God and neighbor. The first four of the Ten Commandments hang on the injunction to love God, and the last six of the Ten Commandments hang on the injunction to love our neighbor. In addition, certain Old Testament statutes and judgments hang on each of the Ten Commandments, in that they tell us specifically and in detail as to how we are to keep them.
After spending time at the Feast of Tabernacles, fostering our spiritual growth, we need to be reminded of reasons to remain joyful when returning to our worldly dwellings and environment. Keeping our own personal spiritual purpose in focus provides us with a powerful perspective that can help us to rejoice as we work and wait for the Kingdom of God to come.
We have been given the promise of a glorious future as sons and daughters of God. A never-ending Kingdom will be established in new heavens and on a new earth. We must not neglect so great a salvation!
Being chosen to lead God’s people is a great responsibility—we can help!
The weekly and annual Festivals and Holy Days describe God’s plan for mankind, but very few understand. We are going to review the prophetic significance of each Holy Day and Festival season and point out the many human errors which have replaced these days or modified their meaning. We must be very vigilant not to fall for any of these misconceptions, as there is still going to occur a falling away from the truth just prior to Christ’s return.
The work of the Church of the Eternal God in fulfillment of the commission given by God involves efforts of many people. The product is bearing fruit, and will continue to do so as we follow His direction.
A Christians duties are mentioned many time throughout the Bible. But one of the earlier leaders of the New Testament church gave four very clear instructions for Christians - an in depth look into how we can achieve the high standards that Peter gave.
Each of us has been given the chance to become part of the Family of God. We will be priest and rulers in the Kingdom of God, helping Christ transform a society from satanic to Godly. We mustn't squander this calling by letting our own will, not the Will of God, cloud our judgment. It’s His Will that we become first fruits in His Family.
When we are initially called into the family of God, we only understand a small amount of God’s plan. Over time, this understanding grows if we are faithful to work at it. The plans that we make for how we will achieve the goal of eternal life must be designed to apply understanding that we will only have in the future. A Christian life is truly a journey by faith!
Christians are called to be teachers. Can you teach? Are you mastering the fundamentals of God’s government in order to explain to others? Does the Bible show you how and what you should teach?
The Kingdom of God will replace the ways of man with the perfect rule of God. Who will be involved? How will authority be organized? How will the perfect government of God be different than the governments of man? The truth revealed in the Bible is awesome.
As we begin another festival season it’s imperative not to waste the opportunity for personal spiritual growth. We are commanded to appear before God because He knows the importance these holy days have for our future roles in His Kingdom. We are here to prepare for a job and we must be willing to submit to God’s Will and be used by Him.
Jerusalem will be restored and become the center of God’s government for the entire earth. Much is revealed about this future time in the Word of God, and we have been given enough details to envision this remarkable future.
"You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden."-Matthew 5:14
