TO CONCLUDE THIS INTRODUCTION
The Apostles knew the God of the Old Testament and understood His ‑ Love ‑ Anger ‑ Mercy and Grace.
We must also learn of Him to understand this great salvation and increase our faith, as His eyes are always upon us, until we see Him face to face!
The Jewish nation understood and lived for the God of the Old Testament, but didn't understand the Lord Jesus Christ and His saving grace!
The Christian nations understand and love the Lord Jesus Christ but many do not understand God the Father of the Old Testament, who laid the foundations of truth for us to build our faith on!
However, to be complete in this great salvation, we must understand and know the Father and the Son and the blessed power of the Holy Ghost sent down from Heaven as the end draws near.
1 John 3:2 "…but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is."
