The bible is about the love of God and God telling man how much He cares for them . A large part of the bible are warnings God sends to Israel which applies to the modern church and our modern society to warn them to not follow this world. But to follow the truth . What is the bible about ? The bible is about God creating human beings, because He wanted to share his love with us. God wanted to make creatures so that they could be loved by Him. And He could be loved by them .
What is the bible about ? God created the universe
God created the universe. Yet this truth is overshadowed today. Since the time of creation 6000 years ago , most human beings have believed in creation . All things to exist need to be planned. Without planning there is no creation. Can natural selection, or mutation plan anything ? No As to make something, it needs to be planned. To be planned it requires intelligence, a brain and a conscience. Those things natural selection or the so called agent in evolution does not have .
We can conclude then that the only way one can believe in evolution is to believe things appear magically, things would appear from nowhere, for no reason, our of nothing . But this cannot be scientific. As for a car to exist, one would need to plan the size, the shape, the colour, the function . A car cannot appear from a piece of metal .
Even given millions of years. A castle cannot appear from a piece of wood laying in a forest. Even given millions of years. What is the bible about ? The bible is about Gods love so great that He chose to create a beautiful world so that his creatures could live in it at peace, happy forever. But sin entered into the world .
What is the bible about ? Sin entered the world
Sin is a mystery . An angel who was perfect for many years, chose to depart from Gods system of love , kindness, humility and honesty . Satan started to be jealous of Jesus . As Satan wanted the first place. When God the Father went in councils with Jesus , this is when Satan became jealous. Satans heart became proud because of his beauty and intelligence. What is the bible about ?
The love of billions of angels started to turn Satans heart to believe He was special and worthy of adoration like God . Satan started to instil in the hearts of the angels that God s government was not fair. That God was a tyrant and that by following Him they would be free and much happier. After many attempts to reform Satan God the Father and Jesus had to finally cast Satan on earth . Here since 6000 years we can see the results of Satans leadership . War, chaos, death and confusion .
What is the bible about ? Israel apostasy
God the chose a men Abraham as the leader and father of a nation and a church that would teach the world the way to save ourselves from this terrible situation . But the nation of Israel who was faithful in the times of Moses had many times of apostasy when they started to worship other gods.
The same thing is happening today . Being proud, selfish is worshipping oneself. It is idolatry. We can only worship God and give him the glory . Idolatry is still everywhere in our society . We might not worship images, but worshipping oneself is idolatry . The regard for human reasoning, and human thoughts are leading away from the truths of the bible .
The last 500 years of Israel existence as the true nation of God did not have any prophetic revelation .Before that the apostasy was so great that God had to send the Assyrians to deport Samaria and Babylon to deport Judah where we find Jerusalem
What is the bible about ? Messiah to come
God then rejected Israel as a nation and all who wanted to receive salvation would have to believe that Jesus died on the cross and this faith in the loving sacrifice of Jesus gives forgiveness of sins and a cleansing of all our past sins . The coming of Jesus is prophesied 300 times in the old testament . Sometimes those prophecies date as far back as 1100 years before the birth of Jesus . Isaiah 53 written 650 years before Jesus was born talks about the death and life of Jesus . This is quite an impressive prophecy .
IS 53 2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.
Jesus did not come with riches , splendour and something to attract the eye . Jesus is meek and lowly, humble, gentle. Those who love God will love Jesus .
IS 53 3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
Many people rejected Jesus because this is not Gods system . Here pride, selfishness, and lying is what is accepted. The Christians who resemble Jesus will also be rejected. Jesus said that we will be hated of all men for his sake . Jesus was despised, Jesus was not esteemed at his right value .
IS 53 4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
Jesus even if He was rejected and hated chose to take our sins upon Him. Unless Jesus did so our destiny would have been eternal separation from God . Because Jesus loves you and me so much.
Jesus preferred to take the suffering and pain so that we would not need to suffer like Him. What is the bible about ? It is about the love of God . Jesus was seen as weak and someone that it seemed God the Father punished. In the old testament times, when someone suffered, people thought that God was punishing them because of their sins .
In the book of Job it says that his friends thought that his suffering was Brough about by his sufferings. This is so legalists. The sufferings of Jesus came so that we could be forgiven our sins and have a chance to go to heaven . All who believe that Jesus died on the cross receive the forgivness sof their sins and have eternal life.
IS 53 5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
650 years before Jesus was born Isaiah 53 tells us that Jesus would die for our sins . Jesus was wounded because of our sins , so that we could live forever with Him where there will be no more tears, no more pain, no more suffering, no more separation, no more anger, no more injustice, no more hate.
What is the bible about ? The life of Jesus
Jesus came on earth. He took on the similitude of men . Jesus was still 100 percent God and 100 percent men . Living on earth we could see who God was, sweet, humble, honest, kind, forgiving, merciful, sincere.. Those are the amazing qualities of God and Jesus said . If you have seen Me you have seen the Father.
Jesus received the evil, the so called bad life people and rejected the church people . In fact this is a great teaching of the gospels . It shows that Gods kingdom is not of this world . Jesus love humility, honesty and love. One can be a church person but the name Christian does not mean this person belongs to God . As the fruits is what makes one be a child of God . What is the bible about ? It is about the love of God .
What is highly accepted in this world is abomination for God . This is a very important concept to understand. One can be rejected in our society, yet God can esteem that person very highly . Someone can be highly esteemed in our society yet be seen as a vile person in Gods eyes. What matters. It is what God sees that matters.
As the bible says we cannot be a friend of God and a friend of the world . We need to chose on which side we will be . The story of Jesus talks a lot about righteousness by faith versus legalism . This goes along with those rejected by society, the outcasts, are often received by God . We cannot save ourselves, righteousness only belongs to God . Only when we understand this concept then we receive conversion . While we try to work ourselves to heaven we are lost.
Another bible principle is that when we want to be seen of men . The bible says that God only proves those who God himself lifts up . Humans spend a lot of time to show themselves to others. God is not like that ? God loves a meek and quiet spirit .
2 CO 10 18 18 For not he that commendeth himself is approved, but whom the Lord commendeth.
1 PE 3 4 But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.
Do you resemble Jesus ? Are you meek and lowly ? Do you give God the glory in all things ? Jesus loves you so have you accepted Jesus in your heart. ? Repeat after me Father God forgive my sins, come into my heart. Heal and bless me . Give me your righteousness . In the name of Jesus amen
