To us humans, sometimes the character of God, some of His attributes, seems to be full of paradoxes. For example: love and wrath, justice and mercy, truth and grace. But only in God alone are these in perfect balance. Our human tendency is to over emphasize one over the other. As Pr. Nathanael continues to look at the book of Exodus, we need to evaluate both sides of each equation in order to truly understand God and how He wants us to live so that we do not live in either extreme.

Iguaçu Falls, the Grand Canyon - these are nature´s beauties that can leave you breathless upon sight. They are so incredible. How do we respond when seeing something truly awesome? How do we react when being in the presence of God, the Almighty Creator? There are two basic ways that people react when experiencing God´s presence. Either we are afraid of God, or we have a fear of God. Pr. Nathanael continues to look at how God reveals Himself to us.

The jury is ready to pass judgement on a convicted felon. In Bible times, the word of an eye witness was of highest respect. Today we give more value to scientific or even of recorded evidence. What has happened to human character? What is our nature? God wanted His people to be of a higher standard - His own standard. He is a God of truth, and in His essence He cannot be contrary to that. Pr. Nathanael looks at the commandment in Exodus 20 many say is "Do Not Lie" to help understand more about God and how He wants Believers to live.

Maybe one of the most accepted commandments people remember, along #6 "Do Not Murder," is #8 - that of "Do Not Steal." Everyone enjoys having and understands protection of their own property. But God doesn´t want us to just have control of our actions. He wants us to have control of our thoughts and attitudes. That is why He includes #10 - "No Coveting" and describes it in greater depth (Exodus 20:17). There are sideeffects of stealing and coveting: they lead to issolation, disunity, distrust, suspicion - not to mention the disciplinary side of being caught. Stealing and coveting share a root cause which show our relationship with God, our surrender to Him and our faith in God Himself. What is that root, and what is the remedy to avoid stealing and coveting? By going deeper into understanding these commandments, Pr. Nathanael Fawcett helps us know more about God and what He wants for us.

If we do not dig deeper to understand the attributes and character of God that underly this command, one might perceive a bit of flexibility with the definition of adultery in the historical context of the Ten Commandments. But this and other commandments that are expressed in a negative tense are actually meant to affirm the positive side and thus teach us more about God and how we should live. Pr. Nathanael Fawcett looks at Exodus 20:14 to show us how God is faithful.

Passage: Exodus 20:13
Duration: 37 mins 26 secs
Commandment number six is the one most everyone defaults to as a measure of how good they are. It is also used by those who find conflict between the goodness of a loving God and the wiping out of nations and cultures through war. After looking more deeply at the law many have known as... "Thou Shall Not Murder", we can understand better a more about God´s character and how His authority should guide our every day activities.

God´s vision for the world, looked at through advent, is one of healing and redemption with salvation through faith for the purpose of having a personal relationship with Him. If we don´t understand these specific details of the vision, we may make mistakes in our understanding of God and/or in our daily living. Continuing in the Christmas story on the topic of vision, Pr. Nathanael Fawcett finishes this series describing how God´s vision requires our response in worship.

Is it possible that we are or have become "Christian" because we love the things God has and the stuff God gives and promises? Although He does give and have those things, that should not be our highest goal or focus. The story of advent brings into clarity that God wants to bring salvation through faith, but for a purpose: for relationship with all humankind. The biggest blessing is that of knowing God - having a relationship with Him, and being known by Him. Pr. Nathanael Fawcett continues his look at the Christmas story and the angel´s message to Joseph to help us better understand God´s vision for the world.

God has a purpose for the world. God has a purpose for Christians. The birth of Jesus at advent is a wonderful time to remember the plan of the creator of the universe. In His plan, He sent His Son and let humans participate in order to accomplish His vision and have a relationship with Himself through the redemption and healing we can have through the cross. Pr. Nathanael Fawcett takes a look through the geneology of Jesus in Matthew 1.
