INTRODUCTION (Part 1)

The study we are about to undertake regarding the Heavenly Father, should be of great importance to all mankind!

 

John 3:16        To understand this God, that so loved us, He gave His only Son on Calvary, to bring us back to Himself!

 

                        To understand this God, that Jesus told us to pray to, calling Him “Our Father” (Relationship).

 

                        To understand this God, that Jesus prayed to in the garden of Gethsemane.  If it be possible let this cup pass from Me, nevertheless not my will, but Thine be done.

 

                        To understand this God, who watched while His son was dying on the cross, calling out to Him!

 

Comment        By this picture alone we can understand:

 

1)      His love for mankind.

2)      His hate for sin.

3)      His judgment that is coming for all those that do not accept this sacrifice of His Son.

 

Galatians 1:1   To understand this God, that openly before the world raised Jesus from the grave, and gave Him all the power in Heaven and in Earth.  Jesus now sitting at the right hand of God the Father on his throne in the Heavens, waiting as He did in the days of Noah.
