… a number in the Bible that for many strikes fear.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Revelation and shares with us the irony in that while the being afraid of six-six-six (hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia) is a real thing (as is the word to describe it), its placement in the Bible is not so that we recoil in terror, but rather that we see the POWER of God in all things.
Description: The first four words of the Bible, “In the beginning God…” declare what follows to be antithetical to all worldly philosophies and worldviews. God’s existence is assumed instead of argued for as the Creator of the universe demands all His creatures to take heed in a history that begins when there were no other witnesses than Himself.
Description: It’s such an amazing truth that while we were yet enemies of God, He paid the full price for our redemption. As if that were not enough, He now promises to bless us with all that is needed for life and Godly living.
Description: Matthew begins with a genealogy, Mark with an OT prophecy and Luke, a personal note. But John begins with God speaking Himself into the world in the person of His own Son. The Son, identified here as the Word, is God (1:1). The Word became man (1:14) when Jesus was born of the Virgin Mary. The facts of His birth are described in the other Gospels. John states simply that the Word became flesh; that is, He became man in bodily form and in nature.
Description: The problem of division and disunity in the body of Christ is nothing new. It is a problem which Paul addresses in his letter to the church in Ephesus and which we will examine in this message. Paul clearly lays out the theological basis for the unity of the church by describing the work of the triune God in the lives of His people. Difficulty arises because those whom God has called to be His are made up of people from so many backgrounds that division seems likely. For this reason, Paul instructs his readers to better understand the unity they have in Christ and how that unity is to be lived out in our daily experience.
