. Today’s preaching has comes to us through several developments. Preaching is one of the commandments which are given by Jesus Christ, who is the Saviour of the world (Matt.10:7). The scripture declares that the Jesus came to preaching (Mattt.4:23). “From the beginning, the church of Jesus Christ was a preaching church” Apostle Paul also suggested his young disciple
Wilkinson says that Isaiah 40 is written to people who felt God betrayed them and question if they can trust God again (195). Wilkinson goes on to say that God has power over the cosmos, the nations, our imagination and that His creation can trust Him (199). The Latter Prophets also reveal the theme of new creation. In Isaiah 65, the Sovereign Lord says that He will create the new heavens and a new earth (vs. 17a) and that the former things will
Psalm 89:26 says, “He shall cry to Me, ‘You are my Father, My God, and the rock of my salvation’” (NKJV). Many other religions acknowledge that Jesus was a good teacher, but they strip Him of His Deity. With the Word of God as our source, we can see that Jesus is just as much God as the Father and Spirit. In Phil. 2:5-11 Paul gives us a very clear picture of Jesus’ deity “Make your own attitude that of Christ Jesus, who, existing in the form of God, did not consider equality with God as something to be used for His own advantage…” (NLT).
Covenants in the Hebrew Bible In the Hebrew Bible, the relationship between God and men expressed differently and it gradually transforms with different descendants. In the end, it leads to an increase of power of God not only toward an individual, but also toward all human beings through codifications called “covenants”. The Evangelical Dictionary of Theology defines Covenant as “A compact or agreement between two parties binding them mutually to undertakings on each other’s behalf” (). To understand the whole principle of covenants’ development, we need to begin with a story of creation in Genesis. God made the world as a pattern for Adam and Eve and guided them how to live and what to do: “Be fruitful and multiply;
Edwards really lets the message of “Gods wrath” sink into our minds to show how mighty, powerful, and capable the Lord is. The Lord gives us many opportunities to rely on Him and when we need his love and mercy the most. People ignore that and believe they can be their own gods. This is not right because Jesus says in John 14:6 “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the father except through me.” Meaning that the only way to not end up in Hell is to except Jesus Christ into your heart.
Graham (2009), reiterates Popes requirements of knowledge of the bible and establishes a framework for a biblical worldview that should be built around the doctrines of creation, fall, and redemption. The doctrine of creation understands that God is the master creator of everything and is the ruler of his creations. God purposefully created man to live in this world and worship his glory. The fall is the belief that through an act of disobedience, humanity was forever tainted with sin. This forces us to continually seek him with our own accord to strengthen our relationship with God, because our purpose for creation is to worship him, and sin is a reminder for which Graham articulated, “that we cannot live without a god, even if it is a god of our own making” (Graham, 2009, 29).
We all deserve God's judgment but God sent His only son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. It is important to differentiate between the character of Christ and lifestyle issues. God's character is Love and He is patient and long-suffering with every sinner who is saying "Yes" to the plan of Salvation. However, the subject of God's Law is controversial among Christian Churches. The purpose for the Law that is far greater than many can realize.
If He does not have such power, He is not worthy of our faith and worship. Only He who created life can resurrect it after death, only He can reverse the horrible that is death itself, and only He can remove the sting and gain the victory over the grave (1 Corinthians 15:54–55). In resurrecting Jesus from the grave, God reminds us of His absolute sovereignty over life and death. The resurrection of Jesus Christ is also important because it validates who Jesus claimed to be, namely, the Son of God and Messiah. According to Jesus, His resurrection was the “sign from heaven” that authenticated His ministry (Matthew 16:1–4) and the proof that He had authority over even the temple in Jerusalem (John 2:18–22).
God DOES love you! More than you can ever imagine! And there's nothing you can do to make Him stop! Yes, our sins demand punishment - the punishment of death and separation from God. But, because of His great love, God sent His only Son Jesus to die for our sins.
I am a follower of Jesus Christ and I have faith in God the father, Jesus the son and the holy spirit. This paper will discuss the requirements of the Christian worldview which involve God, human nature, Jesus Christ, restoration of humanity, benefits of a Christian worldview, and finally a reflection of my personal beliefs about Christian worldview. God God 's loving personality is seen throughout the Bible, including everything from the creation until Jesus 's got crucified. In Genesis 1:1 it states that God is the creator of all living creatures and this universe (KJV). The tale of God 's creation is in the book of Genesis.
