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.

Passage: John 1:14
Duration: 43 mins 17 secs
We are sent as Christians and as a church on a mission. At Calvary International Church, we say our mission is to LOVE CHRIST, LEARN TRUTH, and LIVE GRACE. Through the process of understand our mission and the future of the church, we could ask... "Where are we going?" Another important question may be, "How do we get there?" Pr. Nathanael Fawcett lays out where the leadership of Calvary International Church believes God is taking us, and how or what we plan to do to accomplish the task. "The vision of Calvary International Church is to be a _______________ _____________, ______________ ______________ through _____________, ________________, ____________________, _____________________."

God uses Nehemiah and a host of other people from various backgrounds, trades, genders and ages to accomplish the task of rebuilding the wall around Jerusalem. There is a lot to learn, even from a list of geneologies, of how God wants to accomplish His vision. The enemy uses a variety of lies to try and deter people from being involved making them think... "I´m not skilled enough. I´m not the right age. That´s a job for someone else. If I do that, I´ll have a terrible life." Pr. Nathanael finishes this short mini-series on Nehemiah by looking at these lies and to show that all are invited to join God in His vision - no matter the gender or age or qualification or status. Are you ready to play the part God has for you?

When God gives a vision, you can be sure that the enemy will work at opposing those who try and accomplish that vision. The same happened to Nehemiah from two fronts; from outside and from within. What can we learn from this and how to be prepared for opposition? Are we in opposition to that which God wants to accomplish?
