THE GOSPEL IN A NUTSHELL
I always believed that the gospel could be told from one verse in the Bible- John 3:16:
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
After listening to a LONG Bible study this ‘gospel in a nutshell’ came to my mind:
Jesus came to preach the kingdom of God/heaven message;
The Holy Spirit came to teach us and prepare us for the kingdom of God.
Both Jesus and the Holy Spirit came to complete God’s plan and purpose for man which Satan tried to thwart in the Garden of Eden;
God is going to restore the earth to pre-Adamic conditions and establish a Kingdom of peace with a just government;
The whole Bible is about God’s plan for man to live in a future millennial kingdom where we will inherit His riches in glory,
Riches that were prepared for the sons and daughters of God, called and chosen from the foundation of the earth,
To live in a peaceful new government where all will have dignity and respect and all will have the knowledge of God.
