This quarter -- July to September, 2012 -- PlugIn2God put the focus on prophecy. "History Revealed" covers that end which has been revealed by God before it has even taken place. When John writes it, hardly any of the events of Revelation had taken place. Sure, five emperors of Rome had reigned (Revelation 17:9-11); but that is only one of the few key aspects of the book that had already occurred. Now, to us readers in the twenty-first century, many of the events have taken place; and we await very little of the conclusion of the fulfillment of the prophecy.
I would, however, like to apologize. Unlike the first two quarters, the third quarter did not provide a study booklet. It did not provide supplementary material. The web page was not even updated.
There were many factors that caused this. But ultimately, Satan stepped to ensure that the correct material was given.
But God is faithful. "For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations" (Psalms 100:5).
I was able to publish (online) an in-depth Bible study in the form of note cards. each note card covers a different topic, going through the book of Revelation in chapter order. I pray that this will be a means to spread light.
Each card has a suggested number of devotional periods needed to cover the card.Each card also features the topic title in a blank design. This is so that you can design it yourself! Use whatever reminds you of the topic the most.
These cards present you with approximately one hundred (100) devotional periods (the maximum being one hundred and five ). They can be used for personal devotions, family worship, Sabbath School, Bible study classes, or small groups. They are versatile and should be used to the utmost capacity.
Please: before studying the Word of God in any context -- whether for school assignments, devotions, or church -- please pray. The Bible is self-explanatory, yes; but we still have a duty to ask God to enlighten us. God is ever willing to give us what we ask for, so long as it is in His will. And believe me: He wants to give us light. The seven-headed candlestick in the tabernacle was never to go out. It was to burn continually, ever shining its light over the shewbread (representing the Word of God).
"Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life" (John 8:12).
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God" (John 1:1).
"And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst" (John 6:35).
The light from the candlestick represents the Holy Spirit, who guides us into all truth (Leviticus 24:1-4; John 16:13). Pray for enlightenment and guidance before you begin to study the Word of God. "Never should the Bible be studied without prayer. Before opening its pages we should ask for the enlightenment of the Holy Spirit, and it will be given" (Steps to Christ, p. 90).
