God intends that we learn spiritual lessons from his commanded festivals. What does keeping the Feast of Unleavened Bread with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth (I Corinthians 5:8) teach us about how our corrupt fleshly nature may be replaced by a new and different nature — the Divine nature of God?
Is it true, as has often been taught within professing Christianity, that the question of eternal salvation is sealed at the time of one’s death?

The Bible teaches that God has a plan of salvation for mankind. What does that mean, and why is a plan of salvation necessary? What is it that human beings need to be saved from? If there is a “plan of salvation,” what is it? Are there specific steps to be followed on the path to salvation?
