2017 Pigeon Forge, Tennessee Festival Messages
From Feast Memories to Millennial Realities
Someday soon, we’ll no longer be previewing the Wonderful World Tomorrow, but that incredible new world will finally be a reality. This sermon is a review of the Millennial prophecies. It will be better than we can imagine – even though we’ve previewed it today.
The Hardest Lesson: From Lust to Love
The hardest lesson mankind has to learn is to change from the way of lust to the way of love. It has been a hard lesson for all of us. It will be a hard lesson for mankind yet in the future. The Bible Study shows Millennial examples and the eventual result.
The Most Significant Change In Government Ever!
Many people were shocked when they woke up Tuesday morning November 8th, 2016. Some say this was the biggest change in government we have ever witnessed. If we think the style of our current president is different, just wait until Jesus Christ replaces Satan the devil as ruler of this world.
Have the Holy Days Changed You?
Thomas A. Riner
Specifically, has this Feast of Tabernacles changed you in any way? As in Hebrews 6, we must go on to perfection which means changing from what we were and are to a more perfect Christian. As in Proverbs 6:7, our thoughts bias our behaviors, thus change comes from thinking on Godly behavior. Gal 5:22 -25 and 2 Tim 6:16-17 are good references for positive, Christian change.
Tethered to the Kingdom
By a short tether a blind Paralympic sprinter, David Brown, is connected to his guide. Together they build a relationship to accomplish great things. Within this relationship there are several parallels to our relationship with God, reaching the Millennium and ultimately the Kingdom.
O Say Can You See?
The theme for our 2017 camp program, "Vision: Seeing Clearly in a Clouded World", has a strong message for ALL of God's elect. Let's take a look a some of the aspects of vision and take a good look at whether or not we're seeing clearly.
The God of Love and Peace
Ezekiel 46:9 we are told "But when the people of the land come before the LORD on the appointed feast days, whoever enters by way of the north gate to worship shall go out by way of the south gate; and whoever enters by way of the south gate shall go out by way of the north gate. He shall not return by way of the gate through which he came, but shall go out through the opposite gate. We come to the Feast sometimes stressed for various reasons, coming through the doors beaten, sore, and bruised from the hard knocks of this world, but we go through different doors when we leave. We don't go out the same doors. We go out with determination, and zeal to live God's way of life and refreshed to continue the battle with strength that only the God of love and peace can give (II Cor. 11:13)
But You Must
When the 1000 years are finished, Satan will be released and will deceive a number of individuals despite the 1000 years of education, peace, and personal experience of living God's way. This message explores a scriptural directive which can help Christians avoid this danger as we return home from the Feast.
Walk Worthy of Our Calling
As the Feast and Last Great Day come to a close we are faced with returning to our homes and "back into the world." This sermon focuses the listener on the critically important task that the apostle Paul shared with the Ephesian Church and is just as relevant today - Walking worthy of the calling with which we were called.
