Bible Study Lesson on God’s Library
After Jesus’ ascension to heaven, He has continued to work through His disciples by the guidance and power of the Holy Spirit. A record may be being kept of all their accomplishments in His Name down through the years. A book written of all that Jesus does and teaches through each of us – a book about every believer. Could the world itself contain all the books that should be written?Between the Testaments – About 400 Years
Persian Rule – 430-332 B.C. When the Old Testament closes (about 430 B.C.), Judea was a Persian province. Persia had been the world power for about 100 years, and remains so for another 100 years. Very little is known about this period of Jewish history.Christ – Seeker and Savior
Glory be to God Who from before the foundation of the world had a plan to seek and to save that which was lost. That Jesus came to earth to do. There may be some that are seeking Him, but He was seeking them first. He is the author and finisher of our faith. He is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and end of the work of grace, mercy, and forgiveness. This from the boundless love of the Father Who sent the Son for this purpose.God’s Plan – Time and Eternity
Only recently do we begin to understand the complexity of the human brain. Evolution cannot account for its development. The human brain generates consciousness, complex thought processes, and the ability to communicate with others. Human language is unique with no evolutionary explanation. It is a special gift of God to the first man and woman, so they could communicate with each other and God. The original language families were also supernaturally given by God, to stop the rebellion against Him at the Tower of Babel. They all had the basic mental skills to learn to write in their new languages. Most likely the earliest began in Sumeria, Assyria, all the fertile crescent.Bible Study Lesson on God and the Nations
The new nation – ‘God has raised up a holy nation, a peculiar people…now the people of God’ (I Peter 2:9,10). They are citizens of heaven, Christ their king, now serving as Christ’s ambassadors, trying to convince others to be reconciled to God (II Corinthians 5:20). This is a message of eternal salvation (Matthew 28:19). God is evaluating the nations according to their response to this Gospel. On the disciples’ first missionary journey, Jesus described the fate of the cities that did not welcome them as ‘It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment, than for that city’ (Matthew 10:14-15). Any nations that persecute Christians will be judged severely (see Acts 13:51).The Miracle – Jesus Christ
To make a living means to provide daily bread, growing the grain, making the bread. Hard work, a difficult environment, the only way to sustain life. The only instance of an exception was the people of Israel, who did not believe God after the Exodus. They were to live in the wilderness for 40 years, neither planting grain nor making bread. God provided for them with the manna from heaven. ‘The people asked, and he brought quails, and satisfied them with the bread of heaven.’ (Psalms 105:40.) ‘Then said the LORD unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a certain rate every day, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in my law, or no.’ (Exodus 16:4.)The Logic of Biblical Creation
One thing is certain in the world. Even after all that modern scientists have done to prove otherwise, there is no evidence whatsoever, historic or scientific, that evolution (from simpler to more complex) is occurring today. Evolution is not observable nor has any scientific experiment proved it. It must be accepted by faith. No recorded history mentions any observation of mutation into more complex form. On the contrary, a great number of species have become extinct.Christ in Every Section of the Bible
Parallels – In the Law, God laid the foundation for Christ. In History, the nation of Israel becomes active in the promised land, and the lineage through David, from which Christ will come, is established. The Poets aspire and express that longing and looking for Christ. The Prophets look forward in expectation of Christ.Prophecies About Christ in the Old Testament
Jesus came as Mediator. Also as fulfillment of the Priesthood of Aaron. Aaron entered the earthly tabernacle. Christ entered the Heavenly Temple. The high priest entered the Holy of Holies once a year. Christ entered the heavenly one Once for All. The high priest entered through the veil. At Christ’s death, the veil was rent. The High Priest offered sacrifice each year. Christ offered Himself once for all. He offered for the sins of the people and not his own sin. The high priest offered the blood of bulls. Christ offered His own blood.Gospel Of Jesus Christ For Sale?

God is a kind god; God is a loving god; God loves you; God cares about you; God is a compassionate god; God is a forgiving god; and God is a merciful god. You see it on church billboards – “God loves you anyway”. We’ve nearly all had that drivel rammed down our throats since we were kids in Sunday School and some of us actually believe it. Does the hype match the Biblical reality? Can pigs fly?
