Parable of the Education System

Parable of the Education System

Jesus Christ used parables to describe what the Kingdom of Heaven was like. This article represents a modern-day parable of the education system. As such systems of education are found in many countries, they are used to illustrate the Biblical truth about Salvation and how God expects His people to progress and mature from beginning (Initial Salvation) to the end (Final Salvation). 

The scripture verse that underscores the message in this post is this:

It is written in the prophets, And THEY [ALL truly 'born-again' Christians] shall be ALL TAUGHT [PERSONALLY] of God [the Father].  Every [truly 'born-again'] man [or woman] therefore that hath HEARD, and hath LEARNED of [God] THE FATHER, COMETH UNTO ME [Jesus—at the Rapture].”  (John 6:45)

Every Christian commences their faith-journey when he or she first accepts Christ as their personal Savior. This symbolizes in the parable a young child commencing their education years in kindergarten.

Presenting — Jesus Christ’s TEN Commandments

Christ’s Commandments written on the tables of the human heart

Jesus Christ presented His Ten Commandments in the form of warnings that Christians should take notice, that their Salvation is at risk. If they ignore these warnings, they will NOT inherit eternal life with Him.

In this, Jesus said:

If ye love me, keep my commandments.”  (John 14:15)

The above verse could also be interpreted as saying:

If ye [really and sincerely] love me [as you claim you do, then], keep [or OBEY each of] my commandments.”  (John 14:15)

Recently I discovered the following Ten Commandments of Jesus that are expressed in the form of ‘negative commandments’. In this, they are presented as warnings from Jesus for every Christian to take notice.  As an example, one warning in John 3:5 says they “…CANNOT ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD”.

Are you one of God’s “Elect”?

God's Plumbline

This article helps Christians determine if they are one of God’s “Elect”.

The word “elect” (referring to God’s people) is written in the King James Bible 27 times. As this term closely associates with Salvation, therefore Christians should understand what it means.

‘The Elect’ is written 23 times in the New Testament, and is spoken by Jesus in the following verses:

And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but FOR THE ELECT’S SAKE those days shall be shortened.” (Matthew 24:22)

"...they [Antichrist's people] shall deceive THE VERY ELECT." (Matthew 24:24)
"...and they [God's angels] shall GATHER TOGETHER HIS ELECT..." (Matthew 24:31)

God’s judgment and this world

Our God is a consuming fire
Home » My Gospel Blog » Biblical Theology

God’s judgment upon the inhabitants of this world has happened throughout the history of mankind.

God’s judgment in ancient times

The Prophet Jeremiah identified society’s corruption in his day some 2,600-years ago. The Bible goes on to reveal how today’s corrupt world will parallel Jeremiah’s world back then. In Jeremiah’s day, the Bible reveals how God’s judgment came upon the world back then, as stated below:

An article (linked below) describes events that occurred in the days of Jeremiah the Prophet (circa 600 B.C.). Jeremiah foretold to the Jews and to foreign kings that God’s judgment was imminent.

The New Birth

Home » My Gospel Blog » Biblical Theology

Many preachers claim that if an unsaved person accepts Christ as their Savior, they have experienced the New Birth, or “born again”. However, can such a claim be justified in scripture?

I question this because of my own ‘New Birth’ experience (John 3:8). What happened at this time was that God placed a “new heart” within me (Ezek 36:26). This experience allowed me to “see” the state of God’s kingdom inside the churches, which to me was horrific.

Let me explain.

Revelation’s Seven Churches

Upon reading Christ’s assessment of Revelation’s seven churches, it is obvious that Christ’s analysis of these ancient churches is not a good report about them or of their leaders.

The analysis that follows is Christ’s assessment of each church.

It is provided to assist the reader to help determine where their own church might appear, using Christ’s “plumbline” as guidance (Amos 7:7-9).
