Essay #1 (3 sessions: Morning, Afternoon, Evening)
The Eternal Purpose
Hello folks, I'm Hoshea Love your spokesperson and it is my special pleasure this
morning to bring to you this presentation. It has been prepared as a three part orientation for what is taught here
at this university.
In your program you will notice that
the three parts are noted in the outline as a
- Morning Session
- Afternoon Session
- Evening Session
so that your program serves as a brief overview
of what will be taught in great depth in our learning sessions at this Virtual University.
Now I would like for you to sit back, relax and listen carefully to what will be expressed.
Our intention is for these three sessions to be a free flow of information; therefore at this time only the necessary scriptures
will be quoted to provide clues as to how they support what is being said.
greater re-examination of the bible and more extensive proof will be dealt with in the classes I mentioned. That is
when tedious investigation and many bible references will be presented and scrutinized. In those classes there will
be a demonstration of HOW the sacred scriptures are infallible, accurate and unerring, because we are using the divine pattern
of the universe, the one that is detailed in the books of Moses. And we will explain that exceptionally unique phenomenon
more fully as we continue our presentation.
Whether you are a non-believer or believer, it makes
no difference, because whatever is said here today is of no real value unless it can be validated and proven. And I am here
to tell you that anything concerning the true Creator can be proven. And our intention is to show you that it is a matter
of scientific fact, especially when the creation itself, your mind and body and the scriptures in the bible are the source
of information. Therefore, it would be fair to say, we are assembled here in preparation to know the thoughts and ways of
I imagine that most of you probably might have said, the ways of "the LORD" or of
"God;" so we will have some scripture presented during this talk in order to identify more correctly who we are
talking about. This is important because we know that Lord and God are titles and not personal names. If we actually
know and remember what is written in the bible, that will help us learn how to correctly examine and re-investigate the scriptures
according to the One who actually caused them to be written, the Holy Spirit.
I said at the beginning, these things can be " Proven." The apostle Saul told his students to "Prove
all things. Hold fast that which is good, and abstain from all appearance of evil" (1 Thessalonians 5:21-22,
KJV). And he also wrote, "What may be know of God was shown to them, God's power and heavenly nature, so they are
without any excuse (Romans 1:19-20).
I highly recommend that
we keep these words in mind: what, where, when, who, why, and how; because they will be of great
value as we entertain questions concerning what is written.
Now the Spirit of Wisdom operating in
King Solomon, as recorded in the scriptures, prompted him to express these questions:
Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended?
who has gathered the wind in his fists?
who has bound the waters in a garment?
who has established all the ends of the earth?
what is his name, and what is his son's name,
if you can tell it?
I am the Lord; that is my name;
my glory I give to no other,
nor my praise to carved idols.
Isaiah 42:8 (ESV)
we will be talking about an Eternal Spirit, who calls Himself by the name, Yahweh, we must first clarify
we are talking about and
we are talking about and
we are talking about Him.
To do this, let's re-examine
the knowledge preserved and contained in the Holy Bible. We shall stay within that holy environment; because that is
where all necessary information is recorded, divine principles are demonstrated and evidence is present that will help
us to accurately know about our Creator and His purpose. It is good for us to realize that those ancient writings
were recorded by holy men who were chosen by God and given this knowledge through visions and dreams.
That brings to mind this question: Why
must we look to the Holy Bible?
Do you know the meaning of the
following expression ?
Then said I, Lo, I come
(in the volume of the book it is written of me,)
to do thy will, O Yahweh.
