WHAT ARE THE SIGNS? (Mark 12:41 to 13:13)

WHAT ARE THE SIGNS? (Mark 12:41 to 13:13)

August 19, 2013

Our lives are full of signs.  Good signs, and bad signs.  Signs that are clear, and signs that are hard to see.  Signs that mean a promise will be kept, and signs of betrayal.  Signs that we look for with hope, and signs of things that we dread. 

Biblical prophecy is about God telling us of things to come.  Things that are good, and things that are bad.  Things that we look forward to with hope, and things that we dread.  Most of all, Biblical prophecy is about the promises that God keeps.

Listen to this podcast to learn what it means to give everything thing that you have to God, and then look for the signs that God has provided so that you know, that you know, that you know, that your Redeemer cometh. 

God has promised that Jesus will come again to establish His Kingdom on earth.  This lesson is the first part of a two part series on the signs that tell us that God keeps His promises.

What is it that drives you to give a tithe or offering to God?

 

What is it that causes you to pull out your wallet and place cash in the offering plate each week?

 

Is it a sense of duty to God?

 

Do you give so you can get more in return from God?  How many times have you heard that you cannot out give God? 

 

Listen to this podcast and learn the believer’s motivation for giving to God.  Rejoice as we learn that our giving is always for our benefit.

What does the Bible say about giving to God? 

Not what some TV evangelist says, whose only motive is to make himself rich, but what does God say in His Word about giving? 

God does not want you to be ignorant about what He desires from you and for you.  

Listen to this podcast and rejoice as we learn that our giving is always from our increase and for our increase.  God truly wants to use our giving as a door to pour out blessings upon us.

GIVING AS CHRIST GAVE (2 Cor. 8:6-15)

When you hear a preacher talking about giving, what is your reaction? 

As a believer do you regard giving as an obligation or an opportunity? 

What would you say if I told that God does not want your giving if it is out of compulsion or obligation? 

Contrary to what you might think, God does not need our giving, rather it is us that need to give to God.  God has promised blessings to those that give willingly.  If you don't want God's blessing, then God says in His Word that you should not give.

 Listen to this podcast and learn what it means to give willingly as Paul uses Jesus Christ as the supreme example of grace giving.

What do you know about God's grace? 

Theologians define grace as the unmerited favor of God, but if that is our only definition then we will miss the rich flavor of this word.  The grace of God is the passion of God to share all His goodness with others. 

Listen to this podcast as Paul uses this principle to describe the spirit of a believer towards giving to God.  Paul calls giving a grace.  It is a grace of God.
