After Adam and Eve ate from the forbidden tree, they realized they were naked, literally and spiritually. So they attempted to make clothes from leaves, but failed. So they hid from God. God knew where they were, but he allowed them to hide from him and searched for them. Why? The answer says something profound about God.
Two points: God is calling you. Just you. And he probably is not asking you to do something big and dramatic. He’s probably asking you to do something relatively small. But that small thing, when we obey, has spectacular results.
Genesis 3 tells the story of what went wrong in the world at the very beginning. When Eve chose to talk with the serpent in the Garden of Eden, she didn’t stand a chance against his subtlety. She was outmatched by many leagues.
Just before Pentecost, the 11 apostles of Jesus decided that they needed to replace the position that Judas left with another apostle. They chose Matthias by casting lots (similar to rolling dice). Should they have done that? Is it possible that they moved ahead of the Holy Spirit on that one? How does a person discover God’s will?
In the book of Acts, the Holy Spirit was poured out on the apostles and 3,000 people were added to their number in a single day. What happened next? Did they return to life as usual? Nope. They devoted their lives to four things.
Revelation is a book that can be understood, but not easily. It requires deep study not only of Revelation itself but of the entire Bible. That means that most of the time we are concentrating our efforts on specific passages. But there is also value in taking a bird’s-eye view to understand the overall plot of the book.
A new book has been added to Pastor Jeff’s Simple Guide series. This one studies the book of Revelation not only verse by verse but phrase by phrase. Below you will find descriptions of each book in the series. These and more are available at the cheapest prices at www.Skapto.org.
