In this lesson, we will explore God and His work of creation. God made Man (Male and Female) and placed them in the garden with one commandment to follow. Man, however, chose to disobey God when tempted by the devil - resulting in sin entering humanity. Sin came with consequences in the form of judgment, but God in His mercy, gave Man a plan for future salvation.

In this lesson, we will explore life outside of the Garden and the lives of Adam's children, Cain and Abel. We will see how the problem of sin continued in humanity, leading to God's judgment. In the midst of judgment, God introduces a plan of salvation to a man called Noah. Noah's demonstration of faith and obedience to God led to the saving of his household.

After the flood, humanity began to populate the earth only to end up rebelling against God again by building the tower of Babel. It was in the midst of this climate of ungodliness that Abraham was called by God to follow Him. In this lesson, we will see how Abraham and his descendants Isaac, Jacob and Joseph grew and demonstrated their faith in God. This lesson will also illustrate the struggle between God's rule and Man's rule.

Our last lesson ended with Joseph being reunited with his family and his family moving to Egypt. It was great while Joseph and the Pharoah that knew him were living. However, after they died things changed drastically for the children of Israel. Remember that God had given a promise to Abraham! Egypt was not the Promised Land for the Israelites. Exodus tells the story of how God raised up a deliverer to save His people from bondage. It is a testimony of God keeping His promises and moves us one step further along in the story of God's plan of salvation for mankind.

• Israel enters the Promised Land under the leadership of Joshua
• Israel fell into idolatry after the death of Joshua
• Israel was led by judges and eventually kings
• The first 3 kings were Saul, David and Solomon
• Israel was then divided into the North (Israel) and South (Judah)
• Every time Israel/Judah was led by a good king, they would prosper
• However, when a bad king would lead Israel/Judah into idolatry, God would judge them by allowing a foreign army to take them captive
• During this time, prophets would be sent by God to foretell Israel of a future Messiah who would deliver them from captivity and establish the kingdom of God through Israel
• The New Testament begins with Israel being under the Roman Empire’s rule

Jesus gave specific instructions to His disciples before His ascension to the clouds, which was to wait for the Promise of the Father. The disciples obeyed the instructions of Jesus, and when the Spirit of God was poured out for the first time, this started a revival in establishing the first Church of God. This revival continued all throughout the book of Acts and the Epistles, illustrating the outpouring of salvation to all of Asia in the first century. As the first-century world experienced this spiritual awakening, epistles to churches continued to establish the Word of Truth among believers, strengthening the faith.

Before Jesus ascended, He pinpointed a generation who would be living on earth immediately before His return. Several of the signs mentioned will affect every nation on the earth. Some will affect the nation of Israel while others describe the condition of the church. The signs precede two major events in human history called the Rapture and the Great Tribulation.

Just before Jesus and His saints intervene to save Israel at the Battle of Armageddon, we see a prophecy of the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. The Battle of Armageddon will usher in the kingdom of God where Jesus will rule the earth for a millennium (a thousand years). Satan will then be released to deceive the nations and attempt to lead a final rebellion against Jesus and His saints. Afterward, there will be a Great White Throne Judgment where every human being from every age will stand before God, the Righteous Judge, and be allocated their final place for eternity.
