The Day of Atonement is an annual holy day that focuses on our reconciliation with God. It reminds us of how important it is to draw close to God, becoming more closely aligned with His will. How can we use the Day of Atonement as God intended it?
The Bible recounts the stories of men and women who have chosen to follow the way of God and of those who didn’t. My focus will be on those who chose life.

But when we have a positive frame of mind, even the most difficult circumstances are powerless in their attempts to drag us down. What can we learn from the Bible that will help us to foster a positive attitude to see us through the events of our lives?
The Feast of Trumpets points to the return of Jesus Christ and our resurrection to eternal life in the Kingdom of God. But will Christ return at a Feast of Trumpets? How will He come back?

And do we already have eternal life?
There will be a warning sound the whole world will hear, unlike that has ever been heard before, a sound that will warn of terrible disasters that will occur on this earth. How can we be prepared and also spared from having to go through what is prophesied to happen?

Many claim to “know the Lord,” but never study His life and how He dealt with life’s challenging situations; nor do they know what He was really like. This sermon looks at His attributes and characteristics.
Jesus Christ answered a lawyer about which is the great commandment of the law. He quoted a passage in Deuteronomy chapter six which described this commandment and the physical benefits from obeying it. It is also very beneficial spiritually for us to obey it, remembering that only the Eternal God can give us eternal life. No other so-called gods are able to.
