We examine many scriptures showing God regards sins of knowledge (knowing what we're doing is wrong) far more seriously than sins of ignorance, or unintentional sins. A good Pre-Passover examination. We discuss: how often in fact we sin with full knowledge of what we're doing; how to put the real leaven of sin out of our lives. Really overcoming sin, really changing. "Casual sin", sins done in defiance. We hope Passover means more after this message.

You may realize that the Holy Spirit is called a "parakletos" four times in scripture. Plus, Jesus is called our "Advocate" in 1 John 2:1, which is also from the word "parakletos." But how about you and me? Be motivated, inspired and moved as you hear how we are also called to be a parakletos, if we are part of the body of Christ.

It seems with everything going on that a lot of people - once again - are saying we must be in the last 7-8 years before the Messiah lands on the Mt. of Olives. This sermon analyzes that sentiment, reviews the ancient history of the animosity between Israel and the Arab community, what our priorities should be, and what a good watchman is doing, and more.

"My beloved son/daughter- in whom I am well pleased". Do you think that would ever be said of you or me? Can we ever really please perfect Yahweh? Or is He a hard-to-please Father? We hope you'll feel encouraged as you hear how God's children make it their aim to please Him, and how they accomplish that goal.

Last time I discussed - the forgotten gift - God's righteousness imputed to His children by faith. How do we live in that righteousness? How do we evidence the fruit of His life in us? I discuss the implications of being part of His perfect body; how you and I must witness to His resurrection, even almost 2,000 years after the fact.

This is one of the most important messages I've ever given. We all know about God's grace and receiving His forgiveness for our sins. But then what? Going forward, even WITH God's Spirit, will we be judged by our righteousness? Even with the Holy Spirit, Paul said HE kept failing (Romans7). What's the answer? We must be righteous, for the unrighteous won't be in the kingdom of God. But whose righteousness alone is good enough for the kingdom? God offers a gift many believers have not fully received. Experience the joy of His salvation that comes when we truly understand this great gift - while avoiding the two ditches: the ditch of legalism or the ditch of license to disobey Yahweh's ways.

We see environmental extremes: corporations exploiting God's creation-and then others practically worshiping the earth and its creatures. As a child of the Eternal God, what are our responsibilities to God's earth, the environment and to His creation? What does Yahweh have to say about animals, land, seas and rivers, and His earth? We pray this message will make the rounds among children of God and help us all be better stewards over His creation without going to the extremes of some environmental activists. We end with tips on what we can be doing now.

Most people set their hearts on something or someone. Have you thought about what, or who, your life is set on? Have you ever "reset" what which you've set your life on? Are our hearts set on the right One and the right end result? Why is this important? What does scripture say about setting ourselves, and setting our hearts? Individually and as children of the Highest, it's time to set or reset ourselves to do and to be what we've been called to do and to be.

Why pray? This summer, how much have we been praying? This message is tailor made for anyone who has been letting solid prayer slide lately. If you need some motivation to pray more diligently, listen to this heart-felt message as Philip discusses seven reasons to pray. One or two of the reasons may be new concepts for many. Understanding why we pray helps one be more motivated to be praying regularly, effectively and frequently.

What was the first thing said about those assembled on Pentecost in Acts 2:1? They were together, in one accord. That is the theme of this message today: the body of Christ is to be one, together, working to the Eternal God's glory in one accord. We are not one today. The Holy Spirit wants us together, working together in love and harmony. It is God's stated will, and it will happen. Be a part of the One Body in truth, in fact, in deed and in heart. We discuss HOW and WHO in this message.
