100 Steps To Eternity

There is a chronology of events from creation to the eternal kingdom of God, which is distinctively presented to us within the scriptures. Like a three-dimensional picture, the more intently we focus on God's word, the more clearly we begin to see the complete picture emerge.

The literal Word of God is the pure milk fed to us as newborns in faith, immature in understanding. The simple to understand Bible stories we learned as children and the principles and precepts we derived from them, furnishing us with a solid base of human compassion and integrity, provide this milk. Digesting the milk is accepting the literal Word of God.

Those who accept and believe the literal Word of God also accept the literal ministry of Christ. Understanding His fundamental teachings ? that He is the Son of God, His ministry of repentance, baptism and His future kingdom ? is digesting the bread dimension of God's word. Those too weak to receive the milk of God's word, whose systems reject its literal teachings, are not capable of digesting the bread. Christ is the Bread of Life.

The third dimension of this three-dimensional view allows us to see that every literal event relayed through the scriptures is also prophetic of events that will yet take place during the final days prior to the return of Christ. This prophetic application is the meat dimension of God's word.

The most graphic illustrations of this third dimensional view are the circumstances by which Christ was accused and killed. They are direct, prophetic allegories to the events Israel is and will yet endure as a nation during this, her third and final era as a nation.

Those who cannot accept and digest the literal ministry of Christ, the bread, are most assuredly unable to digest the meat, the third dimension of God's word. Only those matured in understanding the fundamentals of basic truth can comprehend the end-time prophecies that are revealed in the underlying message of the scriptures.

On the first level of understanding, the milk dimension, the bloodshed described as the Children of Israel entered the Promised Land, is the literal description of the physical conflict between men resulting from man's wickedness and evil intentions on the earth. These are the literal events of history. They constitute the past.

In a deeper level of understanding, the bread dimension, we perceive the concept of baptism as being buried with Christ, raised with Him to newness of life, and obtaining eternal life in the kingdom, which Christ taught. Those who are "buried" in baptism must first "die" to their former ways of life. Being slain with the sword, the Word of God, causes this "death." This application represents the present.

All enemies will ultimately be put under the soles of Christ's feet. The last enemy to be destroyed will be death itself. These yet unseen events prophesied in God's word constitute the meat dimension of understanding. They are our future.

The Bible is a book of God's love and the ultimate victory of truth and justice prevailing over all evil. It has a very happy ending for those who believe and there is a great irony described within its pages that is yet to be revealed to those who do not. Judaism will conquer the entire earth with the Sword, the Word of God, proudly proclaiming Christ as their Messiah as they prepare to enter the yet future Promised Land of the Kingdom of God.

The Word of God primarily focuses on one hundred major events from this earth's creation to the presentation of a new heaven and new earth:

All things are to be done decently and in order. This is the way God likes his business to be conducted and he has given us his word in this very manner.

God's word is truth. We are welcomed to hop, skip, jump and do cartwheels down the straight path of God's word, but we are warned not to venture off its path by open-mindedness to any distortion of the facts contained within it. The Bible contains neither discrepancies, nor contradictions, allowing its readers to see the spectacular three-dimensional picture, which emerges from within its pages - a picture framed in love and hung on the wall of truth.
