Vision

Our vision is the Kingdom of God. In order for it to be a reality and not just a dream, we must do something. Repentance and change are necessary. Our vision also gives us hope to meet the obstacles and trials of our life.

Why Temporary Dwellings?
Justin Adkins

Is the aspect of living in temporary dwellings really that important to the Feast? We’re instructed in Leviticus 23 to keep the Feast in a temporary dwelling. Is there a symbolism here that is important, other than God said so? We will explore the links between these temporary dwellings and the future Millennium.

Planet Earth: Restoration of a Tired, Abused Planet
Mike Blackwell

At the beginning of the Millennium, the earth will be virtually in ruin due to 6,000 years of man’s abuse and the events culminating in the return of Christ. Yet we find that the earth will become like the Garden of Eden. Several colossal changes will take place to restore the earth to its former glory.

God’s Protection Now and in the Millennium
Caleb Froedge

The protection that God provides His people in this life is inspiring to focus on.  There are many examples that exude God’s protection and make it easy to see that we are sheep in God’s pasture and care. What will it look like when all of mankind will dwell in God’s loving and protective care?

Our Future Abode
Bernard Hongerloot

God’s reality is replete with billions of powerful spirits ministering to those to receive salvation. We are destined to rub shoulders with angels and a host of fantastic and magnificent creatures. Let’s reflect on our future powers and get better acquainted with … the rest of the family!
