Just as the tabernacles, or tents, represented temporary dwelling places, the Messiah was made manifest in a temporary dwelling (body) as He came to tabernacle among us (John 1:14). Jesus spoke “ I am the light of the world; he that follow me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of
This man credit God with Abraham victory battle and he also declares God’s sovereignty over heaven and earth. Heb. 7:3 approaches with an uncertainty about the identity of Melchizedek it reads: he is “without father, without mother, without genealogy, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but made like the Son of God, remains a priest continually. Since there was no beginning or ending for him many may have taken on to identify him as God, this text was probably considered as a problem text. The general purpose may be that Melchizedek may have been a human being sent by God to deliver (messenger) and test the faith of those who considered themselves as Christians.
2.1 Career You can't adequately sum up Abraham's career in a single paragraph, but for the sake of perspective, here's an attempt: Abraham was a semi-nomadic shepherd to whom God revealed himself, made promises, and entered into covenant concerning Abraham's offspring and the land that they would inherit in the future. Abraham's belief in these promises was counted by God as righteousness and his faith shaped his life. Ultimately these promises find their fulfillment in Jesus the Messiah and all those who trust in Yahweh, the true God, Abraham's spiritual children. Abraham was called both a Hebrew (14:13) and an Aramean (Deuteronomy 26:5; cf. 25:20; 28:5; 31:20, 24).
Joshua was one of the 12 that was sent out to spy out the land of cannon. In the book of Joshua we see that he was leader material and he chose to follow God, not just him but his entire household Joshua 1:8. Joshua has shown time and time again that he could be trusted by the Lord God. Before the death of Joshua he told the children of Israel to be strong and to remember that God had done great things for them and that they should love the Lord Joshua
God promised that Abraham will be the father of great nations and an everlasting covenant will establish with his descendant and Kings will come from him. For this very reason the Lord changed Abram’s name to Abraham which means father of many. The Mission was also considered outside Abraham’s offspring to include all human beings. God’s plan was not only to separate Abram from his family and blesses him lonely; but he wants Abraham to be a worldwide blessing through his descendants and his faith. The purpose God’s mission, therefore, was to start a plan by which to share his blessing with whole the world as an alternative of dealing every single nation individually.
Ordo Salutis “For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the first-born among many brethren; 30 and whom He predestined, these He also called; and whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified” (Romans 8: 29-30). Our lord knew us before we ever even existed as a human. Our lord has a plan for each and every one of us, but its up to us to follow through on his plan and then we shall see the kingdom of heaven. This journey the lord takes us along has many steps and our lord is a graceful lord as he gives us room for our failures. “Our body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, which is in us because we are bought with a price.
Isaiah’s book communicates that God will bring forth Judgment and eternally save a small portion of those who have remained faithful to him. Isaiah was a messianic prophet forecasting the coming of the messiah. God illustrates this where a “shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse” and “he will not judge by what he sees with his eyes, or decide by what he hears with his ears” (Isaiah 11), generating a new messianic age of peace and safety. Isaiah prophesied the message of the messiah with versatility, demonstrating that he would come with peace and fulfil the covenant God made with
Jesus addressed many issues during his sermon on the mount. The book of Matthew’s gives us a view through Jewish eyes. His version was written toward the Jewish people. Matthew 7: 21-23 looks at the false prophets and hypocrites and the concerns for their salvation should they not change their course toward sincerity. INTRODUCTION Matthew is the first book of the four Gospels.
Christians believe that we are living and moving because of God, if it was not for him we would not be here. An example given by Fr. Abraam D. Sleman is, “Adam is also called ‘the Son of God’ (Luke 3:38). ‘Adam’s father was God’ (Luke 3:38 TLB), as it is paraphrased in The Living Bible. Also, ‘the angels are sons of God’, (Job 1:6 NIV, TLB), in a sense that they are His creation.” (Sleman 12).
In the beginning, in the book of Joshua was the preparation of the invasion of Jericho under the Lord’s request and spiritual guidance. One of the most powerful messages of this book about faith and obedience is the Lord’s covenant with His people. As it proven in considerable detail and throughout the 24 chapters of the book of Joshua that only through the grace of the Lord were battles won, in each victory, it edified God’s role in the Promised Land. God is exalted by the many illustrations of the marvelous way he led the people to the patriarchs Promised Land. We see this clearly with the inspiring story of Rahab, the Canaanite prostitute, who had absolute
