Getting to Know your Friend: God
Eternity Past, Age of Gentiles, Age of Israel, Hypostatic Union, Church Age, Tribulation, Millennium, Eternal Future
Before you begin this Bible study, if you have never believed in Jesus Christ as your Savior, John
3:16 tells us: “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him, shall not perish, but have eternal life.” Simply have faith that Jesus Christ died on the cross for your sins and you will have eternal life and be saved. If you have believed in Jesus Christ as your Savior, then 1 John 1:9 tells us: “If you confess your sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” Simply privately tell God the Father your sins to be filled with God the Holy Spirit and He will teach you Bible truth.

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,
that whoever believes in him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” John 3:16
|God is Eternal Life-Always Existed-Will Never Die|
God is eternal life, and has always existed. So, does that make Him a vampire who goes around sinking his teeth into people’s necks? I don’t think so! The legend of the vampire is just a made up story.
God is alive, and it’s impossible to murder him. Nuclear power can’t blast Him into a millions pieces. Bombs will never make Him explode. God can’t die of starvation because He doesn’t need food, or water to stay alive.
The older people get, the more they sleep. You might think that since God has been around forever, that He must be awful tired. But guess what, He never takes naps, or dozes. He’s always wide awake, and alert at all times.
God never has aches, and pains or gets sick. In fact, He will never have Covid-19, cancer, a heart attack, or memory problems. He will always be around.
You were in His thoughts in eternity past long before you were born. He wants to share His eternal life with every one of us, and makes it as easy as possible.
You only need to do one thing to live forever in Heaven when you die. Simply tell God the Father that you believe that His Son, Jesus Christ died on the cross for your sins which are the bad things you think, do and say. Then you will instantly receive eternal life that can never be lost or stolen from you.
Memory Verse Promise
“Can a person hide himself in hiding places so that I do not see him?” declares the Lord.
‘Do I not fill the heavens, and the earth?’ declares the Lord.” Jeremiah 23:24
God is with every person day, and night, but He’s hidden in plain sight. You can’t see Him even if you used binoculars or a telescope. How do you know God’s is available if He’s invisible?
God writes His presence in the sky and His Words in the Bible. He makes the rain showers, and hides them when it’s sunny outside. He blasts powerful lightning through the sky, and sends loud thunder. As they fade away, a rainbow may appear. Every day, He paints the most breathtaking sunsets, and sunrises. They are visible for a time, and then they float away.
A Humming bird flutters to gets some sweet treats, and with a snap of a finger is gone. Squirrels come out to play, and love to steal bites of tomatoes from the garden. When they tire, they disappear into the trees. Just because something is hidden, doesn’t mean that it doesn’t exist.
God shows His presence in the trees. One day the leaves are all green, and then they are not. God has a special touch that makes them change colors, get crunchy, and then fall to the ground.
Wind can’t be seen, but it blows through your hair and it’s impossible to fly a kite without it. Air is invisible, but we need it so that we can breathe. We know that gravity is all around because God keeps you from floating away into outer space. We can’t see music, but we can hear it. A balloon can float in the air because it’s filled with an invisible substance called helium.
Omnipresent: God can’t be confined to one place. He isn’t like animals that you would visit in the zoo. He is everywhere at all times, day and night. He will never leave your side. You can’t hide from God, or run away from Him. You are never alone; He is always right beside you. God doesn’t have to go on Facebook to find out what you are doing.
He never gets tired being God. He never takes a vacation. In fact, when you believe in Jesus Christ as your Savior, He even lives inside of you.
