My journey of digging deep into the scriptures has led me to two ironic observations of my christian life, and the christian life in general.
The two ironic things that have come across as glaring absence of real study or learning of the bible is the opposite of each other.
The beginning of the story of the bible thru the eyes of the jewish people and the end of the bible as told to john in revelation.
God’s purpose,the blueprint of his desire, the beginning of his story should be the most understood aspect of the story. To go further into any story without knowing the purpose or the direction of the story is so wrong. But on the other end of the spectrum we seem to totally even look at the end of the story? Really? I mean, Really? The christian has been misled into the end of the story, as the end of the story.period. Really? I mean,Really? It is the most amazing and most intriguing part of the story that should blow you away, that should make you see how far or how close we are to the end of the story!
Unless we understand the first and last of the story, the scriptures in the middle really have no meaning to the story.
