God’s ‘scattered’ information

In the last blog we discussed how God introduced Himself,

 ‘In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.’  Genesis 1:1

  • In the rest of the Bible we learn more about this wonderful Creator God.  For example,

‘By wisdom the Lord laid the earth’s foundations, by understanding He set the heavens in place; by His knowledge the deeps were divided and the clouds let drop the dew.’  Proverbs 3:19-20 

  • As we continue and investigate Genesis 1-11:9, we will notice that these eleven short chapters introduce various truths that are expanded later in the Bible.  For instance, Genesis 1 is the account of God’s creation in the Old Testament.  In the New Testament we read, 

Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea.’ Revelation 21:1

  • Who is the Creator of that new heaven and earth? 

‘Behold, I [God] will create new heavens and a new earth.’  Isaiah 65:17a 

Wow!  The same Creator God of the first creation has the power, knowledge, understanding and wisdom to create the new heaven and earth.  At the beginning of this temporary age He created.  At the beginning of the eternal age He creates again.    

Why do we need to study God’s Word?  The Holy Spirit scatters Kingdom information over the 66 books of the Bible.  That means we should not only study the New Testament.  The Old Testament is part of God’s revelation.

As you can see in the photo, there are two of us. We live and work together 24/7, studying and enjoying our grandchildren. Our passion is to know and understand what will happen after death. Is there a way to provide for and invest in that?
