Heaven is an eternal abode promised to those who are faithful to God. It is a place for which many of God’s people have longed for as they lived in this life. Throughout the scriptures we can read of how desperately God’s faithful have longed for and desired to go to Heaven. When we carefully consider the scriptures it becomes clear why they wanted to go to Heaven, but what about you? Why do you want to go to Heaven?
The Bible refers to the time of Christ as the fullness of time. This was the designated time in which God would bring His marvelous plan of redemption to fruition. It was the time that had been appointed before the very foundation of the world was laid.
Some may think that sorrow is sorrow, but the Bible makes a distinction. “For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.” (2 Corinthians 7:10) You see there is a Godly sorrow and there is a worldly sorrow.
These verses contain a beautiful description of the most important event in human history. That event is the incarnation of Jesus. When Jesus left the glories of heaven and came into this world as a man, He was a visible manifestation of the grace of God. Through Him, the grace of God burst forth into the history of man like the rising sun piercing the darkness of night until it vanishes away. The appearance of Jesus has given man an understanding of the grace of God.
Prayer is not without its limits. God, in His infinite wisdom, designed prayer to accomplish certain things – not all things. As we study the Bible we find that there are some things that prayer will and will not do. It is our goal to see what the scriptures say on this matter so we can have a deeper understanding of prayer.
Prayer is one of the greatest privileges, and most powerful means available to a child of God. In fact, prayer is the closest that a Christian can get to God while on this side of eternity. In this study, we will examine what the Bible teaches about prayer.
Questions about death are often on our mind. Death is something that each person will face one day, and the death of loved ones and friends is something that we will deal with throughout our life. The subject caused many questions among the church in the first century and God, through the inspiration of the Spirit, answered those questions in His word.
The idea of forgiveness can be very perplexing to us at times. The very fact that regardless of what a person has done he can be forgiven when he seeks God, is taught throughout the Bible. The problem is that some people fail to believe this truth. There are some individuals who find it hard to believe that they can be forgiven because they can't forgive themselves. They see their sins as being too numerous and too great for God to forgive. Well, there is a man whom we are going to read about in the Bible who had committed great sins, yet he found forgiveness from God when he sought it.
As Christians, we must constantly seek to answer the question, "Who is Jesus to me?" Does he have the pre-imminence in my life? These are not questions that can be taken lightly. These are questions with eternal implications. The destiny of our souls depends upon the place that we give Jesus in our life. As our Savior and Lord He is to be our all in all.
The events that occurred at the death of Christ were unlike any other before or after. At the very moment that our Lord's lips were silent and He breathed His last breath, God began to speak in the unmistakable language of supernatural signs and wonders. The veil in the Temple was torn from top to bottom, there was an earthquake, rocks were split, graves were opened, and Luke records that the Sun was dark for three hours. While these miracles are indeed awe inspiring, we must not forget their purpose.
