Jesus Gives His Final Words to His Apostles: NOT YOURS (Acts 1:6-7)

Sunday, September 22nd, 2019

God has not given us access to all information. He has given us the information we need for life and godliness. In Acts 1:6, the apostles ask if Jesus is going to restore the kingdom to Israel. Jesus replies by saying that information regarding times and seasons is something God has not given to us. Jesus’ response also teaches us about the kingdom that will certainly be restored to Israel.

BIBLICAL WATERSHED ISSUES:  Revelation and Interpretation – 7 Watershed Views Which Determine Our Approach to God and His Word, Part 2
WATERSHED: a crucial dividing point, line, or factor (Merriam‐Webster.com) Where you come to place your belief on any these crucial doctrines as a Christian (one who believes in Jesus as Savior and seeks to follow Him) will impact and affect how you interpret and view truth, life, the home, the Church, the culture, and the future. Each view is a dividing point – a fork in the road that leads away from the opposing views and often impacts many beliefs downstream. These are not opinions, but frameworks of belief. These are embraced by ones regardless of their personal study. It is imperative to understand the reasons and arguments before making up your mind. Base your conclusions on the best Biblical reasoning possible. A key to discerning the truth is not to pursue what you want to be true, but to approach the Word of God with a teachable spirit. The Bible is not a personal smorgasbord from which we pick and choose what we want to believe.
Our first watershed topic focuses on where and how we find the truth. We look at the concepts of revelation and interpretation. These concepts include the following:
Part 1:

1 – Verbal (Every Word), Plenary Inspiration versus No or Limited Inspiration

2 – Transcendence of the Word versus Culturally Discounting the Word

3 – Literal Interpretation versus Allegorical Interpretation

4 – Dispensational Theology versus Covenant Theology

Part 2:

5 – Cessationism versus Continuationism (Charismatic Movement)

6 – Biblical Wisdom versus Mysticism

7 – Sufficiency of the Word versus Psychology
