Dennis Pilkington, 42, lives in Kansas City, Missouri with his 15-year old son. Dennis’ deep passion for history (especially ancient history), geography, philosophy, and developmental processes finds rich fulfillment in the pages of Scripture, where he delights in discovering something new every day.
Dennis visited multiple Pentecostal, Assemblies of God, and other Charismatic churches while growing up in Central Texas, and attended several Baptist and Methodist churches after moving to Missouri during his early high school years. However, it wasn’t until 2001 that he turned his heart over to God with sincerity. He discovered the Sabbath in the pages of Scripture shortly thereafter.
Dennis’ other interests include hanging out with family, coaching youth sports, reading good books, and recalling 80s pop culture. Feel free to engage him in friendly in-depth arguments over Scripture, current and historical events, movies, football, or anything else that involves a strong opinion.
Sabbath Message (10/12) – Biblical Discernment – The theme of our Feast is 1 John 4:19, “We love, because He loved us first.” How has He loved us? YHWH gave us His only begotten Son in order to bring us back to Him; what greater gift could there be? The 2nd greatest gift is like it – His Word. It is the standard, the point of reference, the plumb line by which we can test the spirits. In fact, it is the only means by which we know that Yeshua is the Messiah and the Son of God. Who are we to love? Our neighbor, as we love ourselves. If we are to fulfill that Commandment, then we who are teachers, we who are leaders, and we who are disciples need to have His Word properly discerned. How are we doing on that front?
Seminar Message (10/20) – The Golden Calf – The episode of the Golden Calf at the foot of Mt Sinai is a shocking and ominous moment in the history of God’s called out ones. However, the story of the Golden Calf is not limited to a few sentences in Exodus 32 – it stretches across Scripture and continues to affect His people to this very day.
