The History of Redemption in Scripture

That I May Save Some

1 Corinthians 9:19-22 We have a message that will save men from hell – the Gospel of Christ, the power of God to salvation. Why, then, don’t we use it? Why don’t we reach out to more people than we do?

Heaven and Hell, Part 2

Revelation 20:11-15 The doctrine of hell is not popular in this day and age, even in the church. Nevertheless it is clearly taught in the Scriptures and is an important truth for us to come to terms with.

Heaven and Hell, Part 1

Revelation 21:1-8 Are you living a life that is worthy of heaven? We consider exactly what heaven is and the encouragement and blessing that is present there. Not everyone will be saved – only those who trust in Christ and turn from their sins will be.

The Apostasy

Revelation 20:7-10 Before Christ comes again, the kingdom of heaven will grow, its influence will be powerful, and Christ’s enemies will be subdued.

The Influence of the Kingdom

Matthew 13:33 We examine the parable of the leaven, through which our Lord indicates that the application of His redemption will not only be world-wide but it will also permeate everything.

The Growth of the Kingdom

Matthew 13:31-32 When we see what is going on in the world today, are we encouraged, or are we discouraged by all the sin and corruption we see? Should we be discouraged?

The Rule Completed

1 Thessalonians 2:1-13 We consider the closing of the New Testament canon and the Canonical Curse. In light of this, we see one thing: that the New Testament is complete – that the Bible as a whole is finished.

Paul: Apostle to the Gentiles

1 Corinthians 15:1-11 As we continue to examine the history of redemption in Scripture, we consider the life of the Apostle Paul and all he did to advance God’s kingdom.

The Diaconate Established

Acts 6:1-7 As the Lord continues to unfold the third stage in His plan of redemption, the church grows to the point where a specific appointment becomes necessary to take care of certain needs within the congregation.

The Mystery Revealed

Romans 16:25-27 We consider a further step in redemptive history: how the Lord unveiled and further explained several mysteries that had been hidden for long ages with the completion of Christ’s work and the outpouring of the Spirit.

The Outpouring of the Spirit

Acts 2:1-21 We see that after Jesus ascended into heaven, the next thing He did was to send His Spirit to empower His church to carry out the Great Commission.
