Summary of passages: Various passages for the day.
11) Jesus (duh). Moses wrote about Jesus. In Deuteronomy, Moses says God will provide another to be the mediator since the people asked for one.
12a) Part Personal Question. My answer: Jesus promises that everything that is written in the Word will be fulfilled (Luke), that he will go and prepare a place for us and then come back to bring us with him and dwell with him (John), that Jesus will come with angels and reward each person according to what he has done (Matthew). I have every confidence this will be fulfilled.
b) Personal Question. My answer: The book of Revelation will come true. We will be with God.
Conclusions: Number 12 was weak. I found the comparisons on the blog posts for number 11 quite interesting. God is amazing, isn’t He?
Conclusions on Lesson 1: BSF focused on Lesson 1 on prophecy: what is it, why is it important, and where is it in the Bible. Prophecy is relevant to us today. Although I’m one not to dwell on it, it’s good to know what will happen in the future. It gives hope and meaning to our lives here on Earth. It proves God is omnipotent and the One, True God.
I think most of us take each day as it comes because we never know if it’ll be our last. We’re not doomsday-ers or the like. We strive to follow God. And He gave us the book of Revelation so we can better know Him. As we study, ask yourself, “What does this tell me about Christ, about God, and the real meaning of history?” A healthy perspective will make this study rewarding and life-changing.
