Genesis 1-2:3 – The Creation

We examine the creation as detailed in Genesis 1 and the implementation of the principle of the sabbath rest implemented by God’s own example in Genesis 2:1-3

Genesis 1:1-2 – God in the Beginning

In our first study in Genesis, we’ll examine only the first two verses, discussing what they tell us about the eternal nature of God and about His triune character.

Genesis Outline

Before launching our verse-by-verse study of Genesis we need to examine the general structure and history of the book.

Joel

Joel is an end-times prophecy which closely interlocks with other prophecies about the coming Day of the Lord in which the old creation will be destroyed and a new world free from sin, death, and evil will be created.

Joel 2:1-24

Part 2 of our examination of the prophecy of Joel. The prophet foretells an invasion of God’s land by a multitude which Joel likens to a swarm of locusts that completely devastates the land as never before seen.

Joel 1

The prophecy of Joel is clearly (in my opinion) an “end-times” prophecy – the fulfillment of which is yet in the future. It interlocks completely with other end-times prophecies found in Daniel, Ezekiel, Zechariah, Matthew 24, Revelation. The overarching theme of these prophecies is the coming “Day of the Lord” which will bring the utter destruction of the current universe and God’s creation of an entirely new world in which sin and all the curses sin brought into the first creation – death, disease, famine, war, pain, sorrow, and everything else we collectively call “evil” – are purged completely and eternally.

Ezekiel 38-39

Much misinformation has been promulgated concerning current events in the Middle East in relation to the prophecy of Ezekiel 38-39 – the so-called Gog-Magog invasion. We attempt to set the record straight about what the Bible actually says instead of conjecture.

1 Timothy 6:11-21

Paul concludes this first pastoral letter to Timothy with more encouragements and warnings – encouragement to remain faithful to his calling, and warning about earthly wealth and false teachings.

1 Timothy 6:3-10

Paul begins summing up his letter to Timothy with admonition to remain true to the Gospel teaching he has recieved. He continues with a warning about the dangers of the love of money.
