We are truly living in the most exciting time. Our Lord Jesus Christ told us that we will see the signs of the time before His second coming. In Luke 21 Jesus said there would be great upheavals and perplexities happening around the world. Nation shall rise against nation; there will be famine, pestilence and earthquakes. We are now seeing that prophecy taking place. There are stronger earthquakes, continuing famine, and great unrest across the whole Middle East and around the world. The world is becoming a more dangerous place with economies collapsing and moral depravity rising. Today, we are faced with many uncertainties and great difficulties. With these many events that are shaking the world, we need to draw ever closer to the ‘Rock of Ages’, Jesus Christ, and His Word. We need to fortify our spirit through the Word of God, if we wish to remain strong and unshaken. If there is a day that the Word of God needs to be taught daily, it is now. We must prepare for the evil one in these last days that lie ahead.
The goal of this course is to help equip believers with the awesome Word of God. It is necessary to grow in the Word of God in order to be strong in the Lord. If we say we love the Lord, then we should also love His awesome Word. Many believers go through life at a great loss without clear understanding of the Bible. It tells us in 2 Tim. 2:15, “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that need not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth.” We need to labor like a good workman to be proficient in our knowledge of the Bible. Many believers are deprived of many opportunities in life because of their lack of Biblical knowledge. They lack consistency and are not diligent in the study of the Bible. Though God promised us in John 14 and 15, that if we study, the Holy Spirit will guide us through the Word of God and make Him known to us. Moreover, 2 Timothy 3:16 tells us that “all Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.” If we expect to prevail in life and be a strong overcomer in this wicked world, we need to study and meditate on the Word of God. This is not just a suggestion, but a command. God expects us to study and meditate on His Word.
