BSF Study Questions Revelation Lesson 28, Day 3: Various Passages for the Day

Summary of passages:  Various passages for the day.

Questions:

5)  Part-personal Questions.  My answers:  Fallen.  Bible describes it as cursed and sin made it so.  Paul adds in Romans a world of suffering, decaying, and groaning.

6a)  Personal Question.  My answer:  I’m assuming “this contrast” refers to the state of earth versus the state of heaven.  I look forward to the next life, but I don’t long for it.  I have work here yet to do and until that’s done I focus on God’s will for me here on earth.  It’s such a short time.  Eternity is not going anywhere.  But my earthly life is and I will be sad for all of eternity if I don’t accomplish God’s purpose for me here.

b)  Personal Question.  My answer:  Like I said above, I focus on God’s will for my life here to bring me contentment (Ephesians 2:10).  Serve others.  Teach others.  My kids first about God’s love.  And whoever else God brings to my path.  If I live consciously for God, He’ll take care of the rest.

Conclusions:  Anyone want to explain to me how this all relates to the book of Revelation?  This lesson was bad and repetitive (how many times have we been asked about bringing others to Christ?)  This has definitely been the most evangelical of BSF’s studies so far that I’ve done.

    I agree with your conclusion and also have found the questions to be sophomoric. Come on we’re supposed to be adults and have some if not more Biblical knowledge than those who are still on baby food.

    I think you hit the nail on the head with this statement: “This has definitely been the most evangelical of BSF’s studies so far that I’ve done.” I joined BSF for fellowship–not to become an evangelist. I need to get my own house in order before I go out and preach to others. If I am at the point where Christ is the Light of my life, then the friends and strangers who cross my path will want what I have. Attraction makes more converts than promotion. And when these people do come to me, I want to give them more than pious platitudes and quotes from a book they may have never read and I still do not fully understand.

  3. Ken Skoczlas says:

    I have learned throughout this study that God’s heaven is where I wan to be and to get there I accept Jesus as my Savior and will always ask for forgiveness of sin and repent freely.

    It hurts me to read more and more negativity in your comments these last few years. 😦
