Discovering God's Ways
There is no other book of the Bible filled with more mystery and majesty than the Book of Revelation. It begins with a vision of Jesus Christ and ends with a vision of the new heavens and the new earth. In this subject, we will look at Revelation in a fresh and living way. Our emphasis will be on what this book reveals about who God is and how he wants us to live. Our goal is not to figure out all the mysteries, but to know God's heart more––that's actually the greatest mystery: the Lord himself. Be prepared for your life to be forever changed as we journey through this apocalyptic vision. In the final chapter Jesus says, "Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done. I am the Alpha and Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End" (Rev. 22:12-13, NIV).
The Mystery of God's House
What is the tabernacle and how does it relate to you today? In Exodus, we read that the Lord spoke to Moses to make a tabernacle. It had to be made exactly as God instructed. This tabernacle was so important that it was at the centre of Israel's life as they journeyed through the wilderness. What secrets does God's tabernacle hold? How can you become a dwelling place that God delights in? These questions and more will be answered as we explore the tabernacle, as well as experience God's manifest presence in the process. The Lord said to Moses, "Let them construct a sanctuary for me, that I may dwell among them" (Exodus 25:8). Our goal: to know God's ways so that he may dwell among us in the here and now.
Walking God's Way
In Pilgrim's Progress, Christian goes on a journey from the City of Destruction to the Celestial City. On his journey he encounters many different obstacles that he must overcome. Your life as a Christian is also a journey. The only way to make it is to walk God's way. In this subject, we will learn from Israel's journey from Egypt through the wilderness to the Promised Land. We will also be inspired by John Bunyan's classic, the Pilgrim's progress. You will grow strong roots in Christ so that you are not tossed back and forth by the winds of the world. Don't be a tumbleweed driven by the latest trends. Instead, know where you are going and how to get there. Paul writes, "Therefore as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, having been firmly rooted and now being built up in him and established in your faith..." (Colossians 2:6-7a).
