The Eternal Gift
Advent Pt. 1

Revelation 5:6
I saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, standing in the center of the throne, encircled by the four living creatures & the elders…

God IS THE ONLY Eternally Existing Being
Isaiah 57:15  Thus saith the High & Lofty One Who inhabiteth Eternity, Whose Name is Holy; I dwell in the High & Holy Place… 

Psalm 90:1  Lord, You have been our dwelling place throughout all generations. Before the mountains were born or You brought forth the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting You are God!

  • Isaiah 41:4
  • Revelation 1:8
  • Isaiah 44:6
  • Revelation 4:8
  • Revelation 10:6
  • Revelation 22:12-13
  • Revelation 1:17-18

Salvation Was Anticipated From Eternity
1st Peter 1:18-20  …it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, (manmade religions) but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake.

The Sacrifice Of Christ Is Eternal Therefore Unequivocal
Revelation 13:8  …all inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast–all whose names have not been written in the Lamb’s book of life, the Lamb WHO was slain from the creation of the world.

  • Hebrews 7:27
  • Hebrews 9:12
  • Hebrews 9:26
  • Hebrews 10:10

God Identifies Those Who Believe As Eternally Saved (Alive With Him!)
Matthew 22:31-32  …concerning the resurrection of the dead, have ye not read that which was spoken unto you by God, saying, “I AM the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, & the God of Jacob”?  God is not the God of the dead, but of the living!

In God Our Redemption Is Finished
Romans 4:17b  …the God Who gives life to the dead and calls things that are not as though they were.

Ephesians 2:4-6  …because of His great love for us, God, Who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions it is by grace you have been saved. God raised us up with Christ & seated us with Him in heavenly realms in Christ Jesus…

God’s Eternal Purpose Is Redemption Through Christ
Ephesians 3:8-11  To me, the least of all saints, grace was given to preach to the Gentiles the unfathomable riches of Christ, to bring to light what is the administration of the mystery which for ages has been hidden in God Who created all things; so that the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known through the church to the rulers and the authorities in the heavenly places. This was in accordance with the Eternal Purpose which He carried out in Christ Jesus our Lord

Christ Came Into The World To Accomplish God’s Eternal Will
Hebrews 10:5-7  Therefore, when He comes into the world, He says, “SACRIFICE & OFFERING YOU HAVE NOT DESIRED, BUT A BODY YOU HAVE PREPARED FOR ME;  IN WHOLE BURNT OFFERINGS & sacrifices FOR SIN YOU HAVE TAKEN NO PLEASURE.  “THEN I SAID, ‘BEHOLD, I HAVE COME (IN THE SCROLL OF THE BOOK IT IS WRITTEN OF ME) TO DO YOUR WILL, O GOD!'”

Christ’s Sacrifice Is The Eternal Covenant
Hebrews 13:20-21  Now may the God of Peace, Who brought up from the dead The Great Shepherd of the sheep through the blood of The Eternal Covenant even Jesus our Lord… equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
