In the sacred mystery of the Incarnate Word, man can understand himself. Christ "reveals man to himself and makes clear his supreme calling, which is to share in the divine mystery of the life of the Trinity" (n. 13). Faith is man's obedient response to God's revelation (n. 13). By faith man accepts the truth of Christ's revelation which is guaranteed by God. Because an act of faith involves freely entrusting oneself to God and freely accepting His revelation.
Introduction The Sovereignty of God is the biblical teaching that all things are under God 's rule and control and that nothing happens without His direction or permission. God works not just some things but all things according to the counsel of His own will (Eph. 1:11). His purposes are all-inclusive and never thwarted; nothing takes Him by surprise. This paper will prove that if the Bible clearly describes God as absolutely sovereign over all things and the Universe, that mankind has the free will to choose Him or reject Him and live a life of sin by their own choosing.
Isaiah 14:26 states, “I have a plan for the whole earth, a hand of judgment upon all the nations” (NLT). God’s plan has unity, and is consistent with His nature and actions. God will not do something that goes against His nature. His plan emphasizes the superior intelligence of God. His decisions are carefully thought out.
A Throne for All Ages The biblical covenants that God makes displayed in Piper’s Article, all of which fulfilled by Jesus, invite mankind to the Kingdom of the Father. Throughout the Bible, these covenants are made between God and people like Abraham, Moses, and Noah. They serve as a spectacular source of faith and help people on earth to realize the Father’s wisdom, power, and love he has to share. His covenants with man can be referred to as His own “self-written job description,” how He works to keep people on a good path in life.
Its roots in the Old Testament can show us versatility and complete meanings. Furthermore, this title elevates mortal humans to a glorious promise to be with the Father. Therefore, who is the 'Son of man? There is no doubt that it is Jesus Christ who conquered evil and who is now in Heaven exercising his power over all the nations of his universal kingdom: 'With this, the Lord Jesus, after speaking to them, was elevated to Heaven and He sat at the right hand of God '(Mark 16:19). Therefore, when Jesus returned to heaven, he did not discard his humanity.
The Holy Spirit came to testify of Jesus and live and dwell within His believers. It is thus through the Holy Spirit that the power, love and authority of God is manifested within the believer and their life’s. (Muehlenberg, 2013) In the Word of God or in other words the Bible or Scriptures the One and only God in Christian terms has shown Himself in three different ways (Muehlenberg, 2013): “as the Father, as the Son, and as Holy Spirit.” (Muehlenberg, 2013)

Psychology today can tell us that the environment in which we grow up in can have an important impact on a youth’s identity and future. Growing up in not only a state of poverty, but with additional social and economic disadvantages can have an overwhelming negative influence on student’s performance. In major cities across the United States schools that poverty stricken African American students attend are segregated, not in a legal sense, but because of location. Neighborhoods with soaring levels of poverty are limited to the oftentimes overpopulated, underfunded, and understaffed local schools. Creating a culture of multigenerational families isolated in their own poverty.
