Heavenly Messages from The Bible — Part One: “The Living Bible”

“The SPIRIT-FILLED, SUPERNATURAL BIBLE is the most precious book ever written, the most important knowledge ever given, and the most important record this world will ever possess. There in not anything more important than the Word of God!” — C. S. Craig

 Truly, there is nothing truer in all the world than the Word of God.

All the original Words of Scripture are true and faithful.” — Signed: Jesus Christ (Revelation 21:1-5).

Dr. H. L. Willmington in his book: “Willmington’s Guide to the Bible,” Tyndale Publishers, Wheaton, Illinois, has written one of the most informational guides to the Bible ever written. I will be sharing several of his primary topics with you in this study series entitled: HEAVENLY MESSAGES IN THE BIBLE.

In Part Eight; Page 810; copyright 1981; “Proofs That the Bible is the Word of God,  Dr. Willmington gives us some very interesting information as follows:
—In Genesis we read: “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth”  (1:1). In Revelation we read: “I saw a new heaven and a new earth” (21:1).
—In Genesis we see described the first Adam and his wife Eve in the Garden of Eden, reigning over the earth (1:27, 28). In Revelation we see described the last Adam and his wife, the Church, in the City of God, reigning over all the universe (21:9).
—In Genesis, we are told: “and the gathering of the waters called the seas” (1:10). In Revelation we are told: “and there was no more sea” (21:1).
—In Genesis God created the day and the night, the sun and the moon (1:5, 16). In Revelation “there shall be no night there” (22:5). “And the city had no need of the sun, neither the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof” (21:23).
—In Genesis the tree of life is denied to sinful man (3:22). In Revelation the tree of life “yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations” (22:2).
—In Genesis man hears God say: “Cursed is the ground for thy sake” (3:17).
In revelation man will hear God say: “and there shall be no more curse” (22:3).
—In Genesis Satan appears to torment man (3:1).
In Revelation Satan disappears, himself to be tormented forever (20:10).
—In Genesis the old earth was punished through a flood (7:12).
In Revelation the new earth shall be purified through a fire (2 Peter 3:6-12; Rev. 21:1).
—In Genesis, man’s early home was beside a river (2:10). In Revelation man’s eternal home will be beside a river — “and he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and the Lamb” (22:1).
—In Genesis the patriarch Abraham weeps for Sarah (23:2). In Revelation the children of Abraham will have God himself wipe away all tears from their eyes (21:4).
—In Genesis, God destroys an earthly city, wicked Sodom, from the sands (ch. 19).  In Revelation God presents a heavenly city, new Jerusalem, from the skies (21:1).
—Genesis ends with a believer in Egypt, lying in a coffin (50:1-3). Revelation ends with all believers in eternity, reigning with Christ the Lord forever (21:4).
Happy Studying in Fields of Grace.
