Biblical Concept: The Bible Plan

The Bible Plan is utterly inventive.

The Triune God of the Bible decided to create volitional beings--angels.Some rebelled and God created other volitional beings--humans to deal with the rebellion.After various but fairly limited contacts with the humans, a Bible Plan has emerged.God requires humans to believe the squiggly shapes written on flat surfaces for eternal life and resolution of the angelic rebellion. Only God could have conceived such a plan.

John 1:45 Philip *found Nathanael and *said to him, "We have found Him of whom Moses in the Law and also the Prophets wrote, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph." (Jesus Christ, the Messiah, the King, the Savior is the center of the Bible Plan.)

2 Peter 1:20-21 20 But know this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture is a matter of one's own interpretation, 21 for no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God. (God has inspired the writings in the Bible Plan.)

Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. (The Bible Plan has words of power.)

2 Peter 1:2-5 ††2 Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord; 3 seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence.4 For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, in order that by them you might become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust.(The Bible Plan has words of power.)

1 Corinthians 1:18-25 18 For the word of the cross is to those who are perishing foolishness, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.19 For it is written, "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, And the cleverness of the clever I will set aside."20 Where is the wise man? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?21 For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not come to know God, God was well-pleased through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe.22 For indeed Jews ask for signs, and Greeks search for wisdom; 23 but we preach Christ crucified, to Jews a stumbling block, and to Gentiles foolishness, 24 but to those who are the called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men. (The Bible Plan has words of power.) (The Bible Plan is foolish, but smarter than you.)

(God is serious about the Bible Plan.)
