    Jesus chose His disciples and He knew what had to happen for the prophecy to be fulfilled; and that was the coming of the Messiah and what He was sent to do. So therefore, Jesus intended to create that company of followers, we call “the church”. Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John reveal Jesus’ plan. Jesus taught them about life in what he called “the kingdom of God”; and he introduced them to the “new covenant” that bound them together in forgiveness and love (Shelley). Slowly, but surely His disciples came to the knowledge of what it meant to follow Jesus.…

    Abraham was put to the test because God wanted to see if he still loved him. Sometimes the things of the world can take our attention away from the love that we have for God, but he wants us to stay obedient and follow the path of righteousness so we don’t get distracted. The covenant that was made was between God and Abraham, and this verse repeats the words you (God) and Me. I felt that the spirit of God led me to choose this verse to emphasise that our relationship with God is between just him and me. His plans to prosper me are because he loves me.…

As many think he bring them liberation and be a mediator between them and God. As restated again that even Jesus said he sits at the right hand of the father. As a guy that served most of his adult life.…

    The Nature of God and Missions The Nature of God and Missions can be seen throughout the Old and New Testament scriptures. God’s mission is directly related to His own nature. According to 1 John 4:8, God is love and he works through his people to fulfil his purpose. “The central idea here is that God is the one who initiates and sustains mission. This term refutes the traditional idea that mission is the centered on the church and to express that mission actually is centered on God.” Individuals that have been sent into the world to proclaim the gospel, must take specific action by sharing the gospel and persuading all the people of the world to become Jesus’s disciples.…

    They had faith in the salvation they knew was coming we have faith in the salvation we know has already come and we have the privilege to “make disciples of all nations” (ESV. Matthew 28.19). This privilege to share the hope of God’s kingdom is not to be taken lightly as something to do only when we feel like it but we must be diligent as “the Spirit’s great concern is to lead people to Christ” (Roberts 136). The final stage of the kingdom is the culmination of all of God’s promises throughout human history and the ultimate fulfillment of his prophesies.
