On this New Year’s Eve, 31 December 2023, Pastor Kevin reviews current events and their significance in light of Bible prophecy, with focus on the Jewish people and the land of Israel.  Why do we believe the Bible literally?  What prophecies have already been fulfilled, and what must still occur before Jesus returns, according to…

So the People Bowed Their Heads and Worshiped – Exodus 12:14-12:42

In the tenth and final plague, the Lord slew all the firstborn of in the land of Egypt, people and animals, with the exception of the  Israelites and others who obeyed God’s instructions to apply the blood of a blemish-free lamb to the lintel and doorposts of their homes.  Pharaoh, bereft of his own firstborn son, finally humbles himself and gives Moses…

When I See the Blood, I Will Pass Over You – Exodus 10:21-12:13

After eight plagues, Egypt’s flocks, herds, and crops have been decimated, yet Pharaoh refuses to allow the Israelites to leave.  The ninth plague, three days of total darkness, then descends without warning.  Yet again, Pharaoh refuses, and the Lord tells Moses that Pharaoh will finally relent after the next and final judgment, the death of the firstborn.  For those who obey God’s…

How Long Will You Refuse to Humble Yourself? Exodus 9:18-10:20

Pharaoh continues to fight against God through two more plagues of increasing severity, hail and locusts.  Though he demonstrates remorse and pleads for mercy, Pharoah still refuses to humble himself and repent before the Almighty God of the universe.  As the Scriptures reveal, God raised up this hard-hearted man to the powerful position of Pharoah over the mighty Egyptian kingdom in order…

For This Very Purpose I Have Raised You Up – Exodus 9:1-17

In today’s passage, we see Pharaoh continue to fight against God through two more plagues that God designed to humble Pharaoh before the all-powerful God of the Israelites.  Like many people today, Pharoah tries to ignore God’s discipline, then tries to bargain with Him, and then ultimately defies Him outright, all to his own and his peoples’ harm.  Using supporting Scriptures, Pastor…

So He Said, “Tomorrow” – Exodus 7:14-8:32

Pharaoh has refused God’s command to let the Israelites worship Him in the wilderness, so God turns the Nile River to blood and then sends successive plagues of frogs, lice, and flies.  Each plague reminded the Egyptians of one of their many gods and revealed the God of the Israelites as more powerful than the false gods they worshipped.  With each plague, Pharaoh initially…

Hebrews 11:1-7 – Without Faith it is Impossible to Please God

April 23, 2023 – Today, we begin our study in Hebrews 11, often called God’s “Faith Hall of Fame.”  Building upon the previous (Chapter 10) exhortations to endure in our faith, Chapter 11 goes on to describe the faith that endures.  It is faith in Jesus’ sacrifice for sin, personally appropriated, which comes by hearing and humbly responding to God’s gospel of peace.  Our faith is…

New Year’s Day 2023 Prophecy Update – But You Brethren are Not in Darkness,1 Thessalonians 5:1-11

January 1, 2023 On this New Year’s Day 2023, Pastor Kevin takes a break from our study in Deuteronomy to deliver his annual prophecy update, which focuses this year on how rapidly technological developments and geo-political initiatives are converging to “build” a centralized, universal, surveillance and economic tracking and control system that must be in place to fulfill the Revelation 13 “Mark…

The Love of Jesus – John 13

Today’s topical message by CCPO Elder Dan Prespa focuses on the love of the glorified Jesus as revealed in the Gospel of John, Chapter 13.  Dan also emphasized the truth that Jesus is coming soon to take us to be with Him in the rapture of the church.  Until then, we are to obey Jesus’ words in John 13:34: “A new commandment…
