What happened 2000 years ago had brought heaven and earth together! The coming of the Son of God into this world, brought all of God’s prior revelation to fruition. Jesus the son of God, revealed to us what Moses, the Law and the Prophets were trying to tell us about God (Heb 1:1-2). This decisive event is the incarnation of the Son of God (John 1:14, 18), the Words and Deeds of the Son of God (John 5), the cross and resurrection of the Son of God and His imminent second return. These are summarized by one word namely, the gospel. Because we are living in the period between His first appearing and His second return, we live in tension between what we are already in Christ and what we will be when he appears (1 John 3:1-3)
The teachings on the blogsite attempts to be historic Christianity. They are not personal revelations or private interpretations. One may not agree with everything. However there is no novelty.
The teaching on the blog site attempts to be Christ centered. Jesus is the point of every Bible story. He’s present in all its pages. The Scripture is His word before it is ours. It is all about Him. The two common pitfalls of allegory and mere-moralizing are eschewed and avoided. All of God’s promises are fulfilled in Christ (2 Cor 1:20).
EXEGETICAL AND EXPOSITIONAL
The teaching on the blog site attempts to follow closely to scripture and hear its meaning. Expositional teaching is paying closer attention to the massage of the text at hand. It is trying to discover the meaning of the bible than to be clever at inventing meanings from scripture (finding things that is not there.)
PUTS THE WHOLE BIBLE TOGETHER
The teachings on the blogsite attempts to put the whole bible together from Genesis to Revelation using the bible’s own preferred way of putting it all together, as they climax on the person of Christ (a point made #2). This way of summarizing the bible’s teaching comes to us in the form of a grand storyline: the story of creation, the Fall, Redemption and consummation around the event of the gospel.
TRANSFORMATION AND MISSION
The teachings on the blogsite attempts to accomplish these two-fold goals. The first goal is to rekindle our hearts with passion of the mission of the Son and the Spirit. Second, and simultaneously, to be transformed to the image of the son of God as we look into his glorious revelation in Christ. This is not merely to fill our minds and hearts with the knowledge of God’s self-revelation, but knowledge leading to transformation and mission
