21: 1). He continues to say that he saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming out of heaven from God (vs. 2). In the vision, John heard that a loud voice was saying, “Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God” (Rev. 21: 3).
Therefore, God instructs the people of Israel through Moses of his holiness and what is required of them to enjoy his fellowship. In doing so, the terms holy, clean unclean and Day of Atonement are of utmost importance to understand as a follower of Jesus today. First of all, ‘holy’ starts with God, is of God and he alone is the
Apostle John makes it clear that one must be born again (1Joh 5:1). To know God is to know Him as Father as it is written in 1Joh 3:1 and Joh 1:12. We are His children and as His children, we receive special privileges and rights to be called the Sons of God. It is by His power and from His love that we were adopted into His family. It is by God’s love that we were drawn to Him.
Chapter 5 JESUS OUR ONLY SAVIOUR Look at whom we worship and to whom we owe our salvation. This is Jesus or Jesus Christ. He is real, alive and now in heaven, acting as our high priest in a similar way to how the line of Aaron acted as high priests for over a thousand years for the Israelites until AD 70 when Judaism proper was overthrown by the Roman General Titus. Its tagline was ‘past its use by date’. Jerusalem was smashed up and rebuilt but not the Temple.
Nebo before the invasion of the Babylonians where it has been lost ever since. The primary proof to this theory is this excerpt from 2 Maccabees 2:4-8 “It was also in the writing that the prophet [Jeremiah], having received an oracle, ordered that the tent and ark should follow with him, and that he went out to the mountain where Moses had gone up and had seen the inheritance of God. And Jeremiah came and found a cave, and he brought there the tent and the ark and the altar of incense, and he sealed up the entrance. Some of those who followed him came up to mark the way, but could not find it. When Jeremiah learned of it, he rebuked them and declared: "The place shall be unknown until God gathers His people together again and shows His mercy.
Each word shows that the heart of Moses is full of zeal and devotion to his God. He speaks for the good of the nation. Throughout the discourse obedience to the Law is emphasized ... obedience from a loving heart, not obligation. 17 First Moses repeats the Ten Words, the Ten Commandments, and tells Israel to obey them, without turning aside to the right or to the left, so that they may extend their days on earth and so that they become many. "Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Jehovah" (6: 4).
You all are with so much of energy, happiness, and vibrancy today, to hear from the word. As we try to meditate today on the Lord's word, let's turn our Bible to the Book of Habakkuk, chapter 2 verses 1-14. Let's all bow down our heads and pray to the God for his holy presence. The most important struggle, you all face at this time in your generation is to stand righteous in your schools, colleges, communities, among friend’s and in different circles of life. Let’s see, to get a small
As obedience is one of the main factors in God’s definition of righteousness, the fact that God dismisses Moses’s acts of disobedience signifies the major importance God places on the future of his people. As when the Moses but once again questions God’s motives as he says “Since I first came to the Pharaoh to speak in your name, he has mistreated this people, and you have done nothing at all to deliver your people”(Exodus 5.23), God then establishes his covenant with the people just as he had previously done before with Abraham and Jacob. So as Moses continually brings forth these challenges to God, the justification for the allowance of these challenges is due once again
Christianity stands on the idea that Jesus is the Son of God, the second person of the Trinity of God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit; that his life on earth, his crucifixion, resurrection, and ascension into heaven are proof of God 's love for humanity and God 's forgiveness of human sins; and that by faith in Jesus one may attain salvation and eternal life. This teaching is embodied in the Bible, specifically in the New Testament, but Christians accept also the Old Testament as sacred and authoritative Scripture. Christians is a monotheistic religion, meaning they only believe in one god. Christian believe that we are all born sinners due to Adam and Eve, but we can all reach salvation by faith in God and good works. In the
Indeed, a history of life takes its origins in the first chapters and includes covenants of God toward a man or individual, while later it develops to the relationship of God toward all mankind. Through his mediators and their seed, his promises become to be universal and punishment of disobedience turns to the redemption (Noah), not destruction, as it was Cain and Abele. What is more, we see that covenants start to be the silent rules for God’s descendants, even though they were separated from him after the Adamic covenant. This fact pervades the whole book, as God choses Jewish people to serve his witnesses to the rest of the world for the sake of his
