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.

The Great Reveal: Our Epic Journey Through Time, Space and Eternity – Part 2

How do we ask questions about eternity? We looked at eternity and infinity in the first part of our series and saw that it has no boundaries, no limitations. Time and space are not part of eternity and infinity. So, how do we form good questions about eternity and infinity?

We’ve all heard the phrase “eternity past,” but how can eternity have a past if it has no boundaries? Can we talk about eternity as past or future? Is it better to describe eternity as “always present” as in now? But how do we understand eternity as now when now doesn’t remain now because now becomes past as soon as we think of now?

Teaching Notes: On Why We Love The Bible

Teaching Notes are Bible studies we taught before GraceLife Ministries began publishing articles online in 1995. Some were presented as sermons, others as group studies.

Our hope is that these older studies will be a blessing to you in your life and ministry. Please use them in any way God leads you.

This study is about the importance of the Bible in a Christian’s life.

[These notes are from a Bible study taught more than 40 years ago. The notes are in outline form.]

Teaching Notes: On Steps To Disciplined Obedience

Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” Matthew 28:19-20

As we saw in the Discipleship series, obedience to Christ is central to the theme of being a Christian. We recently found this study from the 1970’s that shared “steps” to disciplined obedience as a follower of Jesus Christ.

Teaching Notes: On A Portrait Of Jesus

Then He said to them, ‘These are the words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things must be fulfilled which were written in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms concerning Me.’ And He opened their understanding, that they might comprehend the Scriptures.” Luke 24:44-45

Following His resurrection, Jesus opened the understanding of His disciples so they would comprehend the Scriptures (Law of Moses, Prophets, Psalms) and see that the words in them were about Jesus. The Old Testament predicted a Messiah. The New Testament revealed that Jesus is the Messiah.

The entire Bible paints a beautiful “Portrait of Jesus.”
