The Great Reveal: Our Epic Journey Through Time, Space and Eternity – Part 8

The great eternal plan of God is established. God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – determined in eternity – “before time began, before the foundation of the world” – that the Father would send the Son and the Son would send the Spirit into the world they would create together.

The Father would love the world so much that He would give “His only begotten Son” so that “whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:15).

The Son would “glorify” the Father on the earth by finishing “the work” which the Father had given Him to do (John 17:1-5), which was to die on the Cross and rise from the dead.

The Holy Spirit would convict the world “of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment” and would guide the Son’s disciples “into all truth.” The Spirit would not “speak on His own authority,” but would speak “whatever He hears” and would tell the followers of the Son “things to come.” The Spirit of God would “glorify” the Son by declaring to the followers what belonged to the Son and the Father (John 16:5-15).

Romans – The Gospel of God (Part 73)

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

In the last part of our study, we looked at verse 25 where Paul wrote – “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.” We saw that there is a “righteousness of God apart from the law” and that is connected to the death of Jesus Christ on a Roman cross almost two-thousand years ago.

Why did God do that? What was His purpose?

The Great Reveal: Our Epic Journey Through Time, Space and Eternity – Part 7

We are looking at what God did in eternity, “before time began, before the foundation of the world,” that impacted what has happened and will happen in time and space. We’re calling it the Grand Plan that led to the Great Reveal!

Each member of the Godhead played a vital role in the execution of the plan. Here’s how we’ve described it in previous studies –

  • 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’s a beautiful and powerful completed circle where every member of the Godhead is demonstrating love to each other and to the world they created.
