The Great Reveal: Our Epic Journey Through Time, Space and Eternity – Part 5

In our last study we looked at God’s Grand Plan designed in eternity. Each member of the Godhead played a vital role in the execution of the plan.

Here’s how we described it –

  • God the Father sends God the Son
  • God the Son sends God the Spirit
  • God the Spirit speaks of God the Son
  • God the Son glorifies God the Father

It is an exquisite completed circle where every member of the Godhead is demonstrating love to each other and to human beings they created.

So, how did God execute the plan? That’s where it gets a bit more complicated.

Romans – The Gospel of God (Part 72)

But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, even the righteousness of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, to all and on all who believe. For there is no difference; for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed, to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.” Romans 3:21-26

These are some of the greatest words ever written! The Apostle Paul painted an extremely dark picture leading up to these words.

The Great Reveal: Our Epic Journey Through Time, Space and Eternity – Part 4

In our last study we looked at how Jesus Christ revealed God’s great eternal plan on a dark evening as a ruler of the Jews approached Him secretly.

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16

I promised last time that we would look at an important negative word in God’s eternal plan, so here we go.

Romans – The Gospel of God (Part 71)

But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, even the righteousness of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, to all and on all who believe. For there is no difference; for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed, to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.” Romans 3:21-26

These have to be some of the most hopeful verses in all of Scripture, especially in light of what Paul had written previously –

“Therefore by the deeds of the law no flesh will be justified in His sight, for by the law is the knowledge of sin.” Romans 3:20

Paul wrote that Jews and Gentiles were both condemned and faced the awesome justice of an Almighty God. Then Paul wrote – “But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed.”
