Who has authority over the wind and the sea?
Mark 4 (v. 36) Now when they had left the multitude, they took Him along in the boat.... (v. 37) And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was already filling. (v. 38) But He was in the stern, asleep on a pillow. And they awoke Him and said to Him, “Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?”
(Verse 39) Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm. (v. 40) But He said to them, “Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?” (v. 41) And they feared exceedingly, and said to one another, “Who can this be, that even the wind and the sea obey Him!”
Who has authority over death and the grave?
John 11 (v. 38) Then Jesus, again groaning in Himself, came to the tomb. It was a cave, and a stone lay against it. (v. 39) Jesus said, “Take away the stone.” Martha, the sister of him who was dead, said to Him, “Lord, by this time there is a stench, for he has been dead four days.”
(Verse 40) Jesus said to her, “Did I not say to you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?” (v. 41) Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead man was lying. And Jesus lifted up His eyses and said, “Father, I thank You that You have heard Me. (v. 42) And I know that You always hear Me, but becasue of the people who are standing by, I said this, that they may believe that You sent Me.”
(Verse 43) Now when He had said these things, He cried with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come forth!” (v. 44) And he who had died came out bound hand and foot with graveclothes, and his face was wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them, “Loose him, and let him go.” (v. 45) Then many of the Jews who had come to Mary, and had seen the things Jesus did, believed in Him.
1) Why you are here and why does God allow us to suffer.
In this series of studies, you will also learn the truth about what is really bothering people's minds: "Why does God allow us to suffer?" from two perspectives. The future world-wide application, where suffering affects the whole world; and the literal-local application, which concerns you personally, on an individual level. In another study we will discover why you are here, that God does have a plan for your life! The answers to these questions will certainly provide you with an anchor to hang your faith on.
2) How Christ actually redeemed you and why, the root reason that you can be saved.
No lesson series that I know of, explains to you "Why" you are saved (Lesson 2) and then to show you "How" Christ actually redeemed you (Lesson 3) the mechanics behind the event; something that you can surely ground your faith in.
3) Even though this salvation has been given to every believer through faith in Christ, it is not experienced all at once. That's right, salvation is so awesome, that it comes to us in three stages (Lesson 12); be educated about how to answer the question "Are you saved?" and to have confidence in your response.
Also discussed, "What must I do to be saved" (Lesson 6); what it means to "Walk in the Spirit" (Lesson 9), and how to reconcile "The Law & Grace" in light of the gospel (Lesson 11).
When you get to (Lesson 17) you will discover the mystery of "What happens to you when you die" and who are the 144,000 (Lesson 23).
In these last days of strife on this planet, if we do not obtain a rooted "Assurance of Salvation," we will not be able to stand during persecution!!
|Discover the reason why you can be saved!||
Was the Law really nailed to the cross?
What exactly makes your salvation valid before the courts of heaven!
In order to ask God the answers to these questions, we have to believe that He cares for us.
I Pet 5 (v. 6) Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, (v. 7) casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. Watch the short video below: “God Cares for You”
God cares! He cares for you as if you were the only one on Earth....You are not alone! You are loved more than you will ever know by One who knows you better than you know yourself. And that love is the exact measure of your worth!
|Find out why you are here, God has a plan for your life!||We would never want Jesus to return, if there was no suffering!||Was He a real person or just a character in folklore myths?|
Watch the following short video segment which starts out describing how the “world” views God’s attitude towards us....and then see the truth revealed from His word about how God really does care for you. video ref. 
(Verse 21) They shall build houses and inhabit them; They shall plant vineyards and eat their fruit. (v. 22) They shall not build and another inhabit; They shall not plant and another eat; For as the days of a tree, so shall be the days of My people, and My elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands.
(Verse 24) It shall come to pass that before they call, I will answer; And while they are still speaking, I will hear.
(v. 25) The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, the lion shall eat straw like the ox....They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain, Says the Lord.
