How can nations, peoples, individuals be reconciled and learn to live together in peace? How can a corrupt and evil world be reconciled to God? These things can be done, and they will be done. The Bible tells us how.
Moreover, the Feast of Atonement, one of the seven annual festivals of God commanded in Scripture, focuses on the theme of reconciliation, and Scripture reveals a great deal of information concerning how God is going to bring reconciliation and peace to the earth, worldwide.
In this message Rod Reynolds discusses how Mankind will be reconciled to God.
Almost any worthwhile endeavor will involve failures, obstacles, setbacks, and problems of various kinds. Endurance doesn’t mean we’ll never stumble; doesn’t mean we’ll never fail or never sin. It does mean that despite our failures and setbacks, obstacles and problems we’ll keep striving to fulfill God’s will in our lives. We won’t give up – we won’t quit – we won’t turn away from God’s path.
Learn what the Bible says about enduring in the true faith, and how God provides encouragement and the help necessary to succeed to those who diligently seek him.
Scripture instructs us to love the truth (Zechariah 8:19). We are warned that we are subject to being deceived if we do not “receive the love of the truth” (2 Thessalonians 2:10). Further, we’re told that God hates lying, and hates lies (Proverbs 6:17, 19). The punishment of eternal death awaits those who persist in lying and will not repent (Revelation 21:8). In this message are discussed additional points related to the subject, “love the truth.”
Can one become a party to the New Covenant merely by “confessing the name of Christ?” Does one have to be a member of this or that particular church organization or body to be party to the New Covenant? Is the Covenant individual or collective? How long is the Covenant to remain effective? Once entered into, can it be broken? These questions must be answered if we are to know where we stand before God and with relation to His Covenant.
A covenant was at the heart of the relationship of Abraham with God. Likewise, a covenant was at the heart of the relationship of the people of Israel of old, descendants of Abraham, with God. And, a covenant is at the heart of the relationship of God’s spiritual nation, the Church of God, with him.
