1. God’s Ultimate Plan
God’s mind is revealed to us in Genesis 1:26-28. This verse is a capsulized version of what his plan is for humanity and their relationship with him. The entire bible starting from genesis 2 to revelations is the expanded version of his plan and purpose for man.
2. LUCIFER, WHO HE WAS, IS, AND HIS KINGDOM
In Ezekiel and Isaiah we read in depth about Lucifer when he was created. We also read that he was expelled from the presence of God onto planet earth where he has established his kingdom once sin and wickedness was found in him. Genesis 1:1-2 portraits the condition of earth before satan fell and what happened after his fall. Starting from Genesis 1:3 God starts his restoration work of planet earth in preparation for the creation of man – Adam and Eve.
3. THE TRIPARTITE MAN
The order in which man was created according to Genesis 1:26-28. By the mere fact of the fall if man, the composition in which man was created changed into disorder.
4. THE TRIPARTITE MAN, PART II
How God in his love and mercy wants to change (John 3:16) disorder into order so we can be put back on track of being in the ultimate plan of God – Genesis 1:26-28.
5. DISORDER AND HUMANITY
We discussed the current condition of humanity which is disorder and God’s plan to reverse disorder into order. The process is lifetime long where the holy spirit has to work on our flesh/soul. This is the process of salvation of the soul or also called the sanctification process. The goal is Genesis 1:26-28.
6. HUMANITY IN CHAINS
What chains is the bible referring to? What are these chains? How can we get rid of them so we can run the race towards the finish line and obtain the reward that Genesis 1:26 talks about.
7. WHAT IS THE BIBLE?
In this class we discuss what the main message of the Bible is – The relationship between God and humanity. The Bible is the Word of God and we discuss that the “Word” is the means that God creates and therefore transmits life and light by His Word. References are in Gen. 1, John 1 and Hebrew 1.
8. GOD SPEAKING, AND WHY JESUS CAME
In this class we continued to discuss that God’s nature is to speak continuously and as we read in the book of Hebrews “if you hears His voice, do not harden your heart” Also, Why did Jesus have to come to earth? what was his message? It was in God’s love that Jesus came to planet earth (John 3:16) to reveal God’s mind and plan for humanity
9. TYPES OF PROPHETS IN THE BIBLE
What are the differences between the Minor and Major Prophets? What was the role of a prophet in the Old Testament. How does did God speak in the Old Testament vs the New Testament?
