INTRODUCTION

To believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God is the first step toward a personal relationship with God (Acts 8:26-38).  Many things are said about our redemption in the Holy Scriptures.  However, there is a far greater volume that is written about “the plan of God,” from the beginning to the end.

All of it is important, but it is the first six thousand years from the creation of Adam which should be our greatest concern at this time.  God created mankind, male and female, and they fell from His will and His favor.  The Son of God has come and died on the cross to provide for the redemption of mankind, and restore us to immortality.

In the creation of Eve, God revealed much of what mankind is really all about.  The narrative of her creation prophesies of the coming of the “Son of God,” and of His death, and the piercing of His side to “Purchase the Church of God [The Bride] with His own blood” (Gen. 2:18-24; Acts 20:28).

From about two thousand B.C., until Jesus died on the cross, God used the descendants of Abraham to prophesy of the coming events of the Grace Age.  He finished that era with a wonderful manifestation of His power.  He gave eternal life to the believers, and chose a special group of them to be His Church: the Bride, and blessed them with “Glory, Honor, and Peace” (Acts 4:33-Acts 5:14; Rom. 2:5-10).

The Bride of Christ is prophesied of many times in the Old Testament.  Those prophecies even tell us how many leaders would be anointed of God to lead the Jewish Church, in that first century, and the Gentile Church in this last century of the Grace Age.

Understanding the Prophetic Intent
of the Scriptural Account of the Creation

Chapter 1: Introduction

Since the beginning of time, man has wondered, theorized, and imagined as to the creation of himself and the universe. There are many points of view and a number of largely accepted hypotheses.

All in all, most people believe in one of two theories: the Creation, and Evolution. The more "scientific" class would have you believe that, at some point in time, all the matter currently found in the universe occupied a space no larger than a period on a printed page. That speck exploded, and the scattered matter developed into clouds, stars, galaxies, planets and, eventually, life.

The religious circles tend to accept the idea of the creation. This is the idea that God (some refer only to a "greater power") created all things, from the universe to the inhabitants of the Earth.

Still others meld these two theories and claim that some "higher power" created some form of life, and that life evolved into what we now see.

The Key of Knowledge PDF Print E-mail

"Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ . . . to the saints and faithful brethren in Christ which are at Colosse." "I would that ye knew what great conflict I have for you, and for them at Laodicea, and for as many as have not seen my face in the flesh; That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgment of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ; In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge." (Col. 1:1,2; Col. 2:1-3)

The Key

The third chapter of Ecclesiastes gives a running account of how God planned for there to be seasons of good and bad events in the history of His creation, its fall, and the process of our redemption. He said, "There is a time for every purpose (of God) under heaven." The good and bad are both "beautiful in His time," for they are germane to his overall plan for mankind, and our redemption. The subject continues through verse seventeen, at least.

Before God left the subject, He defined for us how it all related to His work, and how He had hidden His work from even His own children. In so doing, with incredible clarity and brevity, He gave us the definition of The Key of Knowledge. Solomon faithfully recorded these words, as he was moved upon by the Spirit of the Lord. "Whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him. That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God requireth that which is past.

Introduction to Doctrine PDF Print E-mail

"God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you." (Rom 6:17)

That form of doctrine to which Paul refers in Romans chapter six is the doctrine which calls sinners to forsake their sins and yield their lives as servants unto righteousness. It is the doctrine which directs mankind to the door of entry into a place of favor with The Almighty God, who created all things for His own pleasure and glory. All of mankind has drifted far away from that place because of the fall of Adam, and God has provided a means of reconciliation through the sacrifice of His only begotten son, Jesus Christ, for our sins.

Once a person has been saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, by repentance and forgiveness of sins, the need for doctrine does not go away. Paul told Timothy that a continued faithfulness to doctrine plays a very important role in our ultimate salvation. We are able to "endure to the end" by adherence to the doctrine of Jesus Christ as well as the "Apostles’ doctrine." (Acts 2:41,42) In writing to the young Timothy, Paul said,

"Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation (manner of life), in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity. Till I come, give attendance to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine. Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery. Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all. Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee." (1 Tim. 4:12-16)

The Truth About God's Elect PDF Print E-mail
Written by C. Elden McNabb   
Tuesday, 23 June 2009 16:17


From the book "The Doctrine of Christ"

We, as Christians have inherited from our spiritual forefathers a common misunderstanding of God's use of such terms as "The Church," "God's Elect," "The Bride The Lamb's Wife," and others. Insomuch as we have misunderstood these terms, we have also failed to comprehend the true intent of much of the writings in our most precious treasure: The Holy Scriptures.

Many of us have concentrated on the New Testament, because we think it is more relevant or more easily understood. However, the common and widely varied differences in doctrines among believers shows that to be a false assumption. The writings of the Apostle Paul make up much of the New Testament, and Peter testified that some of those writings were hard to be understood. It would seem that some of Peter's words, or John's and Matthew's, are not so obvious either. Therefore, it is necessary that we rightly divide the Word of Truth, and become able ministers of the New Testament. We must learn to use meat and not milk only. (Heb. 5:13)

God promised us by the words of Jeremiah that he would give us pastors after His own heart who would "feed (us) with knowledge and understanding." Therefore, I have labored to rightly divide for us this great truth and set it forth for your edification.
