You’ll notice in all our recorded lessons there is a white board behind me. Some things are better communicated by drawing them out.
Recently, someone made this comment about one of our white board lessons:
“…if someone just walked in at the end of the message, it would be hard to decipher the chaos.”
Indeed! What makes drawing some charts and visuals helpful is not always the end product, but seeing them in process of being revealed. If all you see is the finished product it can be overwhelming, confusing, and even undecipherable.
So it is with your Bible.
It is a book spanning centuries through dozens of writers writing to many different audiences.
The Bible can be overwhelming, confusing, and undecipherable.
What’s the key? You must learn to see the Bible revealed progressively. It is not all speaking to you or talking about you today.
People jump into John 6, Acts 2, or Revelation 13 without knowing anything that went on before and their understanding becomes a doctrinal mess.
The reason we draw charts of the Bible is for that very reason. The end product is complex. We need to walk through the process by drawing it out bit by bit.
As you see the Bible prophecy unfold and mystery revealed, then it is much easier to know what God is doing and why.
Want to make it clear? Draw it out, step by step.
We who are alive today are at the end of God’s lesson to mankind. We need to rewind the tape and sometimes go through it step by step to know how we got here.
For His glory and grace,
