BIBLE STUDIES

Bible Studies should be an essential element of your church website.
In conjunction with a letterboxing/advertising campaign you can turn your site into an opportunity for seed sowing and soul winning.

Something I would recommend you avoid at all costs is simply presenting visitors with is just a link to another site.
If people come to your site expecting a bible study, give them at the very least a solid taste of our message. They are actively seeking… let them find.

Amazing Facts is often the go to site for study links. They are actually happy for local church websites to post the first couple of questions with full answers for each lesson. There is a far greater chance of a visitor taking up studies is they can see right there the biblical standard on which our faith stands. If they need to click on another link they may well just shut your page down.

In addition to this sample question/answer, a list of the rest of the questions can only enhance the desire to learn more.

If you are using WordPress, add Reftagger so that people can see the bible verses referred to. It’s inclusion will only enhance the ease of study for your visitor.

Between the Amazing Facts Study Guides & Storacles of Prophecy there are about 18 languages covered. Let visitors know about these too.

1. Is There Anything Left You Can Trust?

In these morally challenged times – when billions are embezzled through corporate fraud when trusted, spiritual leaders prove false when lying in politics seems to be the norm when those you depend on the most often hurt you the deepest – is there anything left you can trust? Yes! You can fully trust the Bible! Why? Just take a look at the evidence…

The Bible says, “All scripture is given by inspiration of God.” 2 Timothy 3:16. “Prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.” 2 Peter 1:21. “The scripture cannot be broken.” John 10:35.

Answer:   It claims to be inspired. It was written by men who were guided by the Holy Ghost. It cannot be broken or proved untrue.

Jesus said, “It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone.” “It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.” “It is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.” Matthew 4:4, 7, 10. “Thy word is truth.” John 17:17.

Answer:   Jesus quoted Scripture when meeting the temptations of Satan. He also stated that the Bible is truth John 17:17. Jesus often quoted Scripture as authority for the truth He was teaching.

The Bible says, “I am the Lord . . . new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.” Isaiah 42:8, 9. “I am God . . . Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done.” Isaiah 46:9, 10.
Answer:   Bible predictions of things to happen in the future confirm the inspiration of Scripture as they come to pass. Notice the following examples of fulfilled Bible prophecies:
1. Four world empires to arise: Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, and Rome Daniel chapters 2, 7, 8.

2. Cyrus to be the warrior to capture Babylon Isaiah 45:1-3.

3. After Babylon’s destruction, it would never be inhabited again Isaiah 13:19, 20 Jeremiah 51:37.

4. Egypt would never again have a commanding position among the nations Ezekiel 29:14, 15 30:12, 13.

5. Earth-shaking calamities and fear toward the end of time Luke 21:25, 26.

6. Moral degeneracy and decline of spirituality in the last days 2 Timothy 3:1-5.

4. Can we expect scientific statements made in the Bible to be accurate?
5. Are biblical health principles tuned to the twenty-first century mind?
6. Are the historical statements of the Bible accurate?
7. One of the greatest miracles of the Bible is its unity. Please ponder the following amazing facts …
8. What evidence of Bible inspiration is found in the lives of people?
9. What evidence for Bible inspiration emerges when we compare Old Testament prophecies of the coming Messiah with New Testament happenings in the life of Jesus?
10. What great advantage does a person have who accepts the Bible as God’s inspired word?
11. What crucial world happenings have brought the power and appeal of the Bible into sharp focus?
12. Why does the Bible have such universal appeal?

2. Did God Create the Devil?

Most people in the world are being deceived by an evil genius bent on destroying their lives – a brilliant mastermind called the devil, or Satan. But this dark prince is much more than what you might think… many say he’s just a devious mythical figure, but the Bible says he’s very real, and he’s deceiving families, churches, and even nations to increase sorrow and pain. Here are the Bible’s amazing facts about this prince of darkness and how you can overcome him!

“The devil sinneth from the beginning.” 1 John 3:8. “That old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan.” Revelation 12:9.

Answer:   Satan, also called the devil, is the originator of sin. Without the Scriptures, the origin of evil would remain unexplained.

“How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning!” Isaiah 14:12. Jesus said, “I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.” Luke 10:18. “Thou wast upon the holy mountain of God.” Ezekiel 28:14.

Answer:   His name was Lucifer, and he was living in heaven. Lucifer is symbolized by the king of Babylon in Isaiah 14 and as the king of Tyrus in Ezekiel 28.

“Thou wast created.” Ezekiel 28:13, 15. “Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth.” Ezekiel 28:14. “Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty … every precious stone was thy covering … the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. … Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.” Ezekiel 28:12-15.

Answer:   Lucifer was created by God, as were all other angels (Ephesians 3:9). Lucifer was a “covering” cherub, or angel. One great angel stands on the left side of God’s throne and another on the right (Psalms 99:1). Lucifer was one of those highly exalted angel leaders. Lucifer’s beauty was flawless and breathtaking. His wisdom was perfect. His brightness was awe-inspiring. Ezekiel 28:13 seems to indicate that his throat was specially prepared to make him an outstanding musician. Some think he led the angelic choir.

4. What happened in Lucifer’s life that led him to sin? What blasphemous sin did he then commit?
5. What happened in heaven as a consequence of Lucifer’s rebellion?
6. Where is Satan’s present headquarters? How does he feel about people?
7. When God created Adam and Eve, what one thing did He forbid them to do? What was to be the penalty for disobedience?
8. What medium did Satan use to deceive Eve? What lies did Satan tell her?
9. Was eating a piece of fruit such a bad thing? Why were Adam and Eve removed from the garden?
10. What amazing facts does the Bible reveal regarding Satan’s methods to hurt, deceive, discourage, and destroy people?
11. How powerful and effective are Satan’s temptations and strategies?
12. When and where will the devil receive his punishment? What will that punishment be?

7. 被历史遗忘的日子

你可知道有一个非常重要的日子,差不多被众人遗忘了?奇怪的是,对这样一个人类历史上最重要的日子,却只有少数人注意到。这不仅仅是一个过去的日子,也是现在和将来的日子。况且,在这个被遗忘的日子上所发生的事,会对你的人生有深刻的影响。想了解一些有关这被历史遗忘的日子的真情吗?请详细阅读本课内容。

“耶稣来到拿撒勒,就是他长大的地方。在安息日,照他平常的规矩进了会堂,站起来要念圣经。”(路加福音4:16)

答案:   在安息日,祂照平常的规矩进会堂敬拜。

“第七日是向耶和华你上帝当守的安息日。”(出埃及记20:10)“过了安息日,……七日的第一日清早,出太阳的时候,她们来到坟墓那里。”(马可福音16:1,2)

答案:   中国使用罗马历是近现代的事。由于我们已习惯于把星期日当作休假日,所以误以为星期日是一个星期的最后一天,而不知道星期日其实是一周的头一天。犹太历法中称这一天为七日的头一日。而一周的最后一天,即第七日,在圣经中称为安息日,与我们常说的星期六相对应。注意从以上的经文表明,安息日比星期日(七日的第一日)早一天。

“起初上帝创造天地。”“到第七日,上帝造物的工已经完毕,就在第七日歇了他一切的工,安息了。上帝赐福给第七日,定为圣日,因为在这日上帝歇了他一切创造的工,就安息了。”(创世记1:1;2:2,3)

答案:   上帝在创造之初制定了安息日。在安息日祂歇了一切创造之工,赐福给第七日,定为圣日——分别出来作为神圣之日子。

1. The Millennial Man

The vast kingdom of Babylon was opulent and prosperous, yet Nebuchadnezzar the king stirred in his royal bed. How long would this golden era last, he wondered, and what would become of his powerful empire when he was gone?

With these disturbing questions in mind, the mighty monarch drifted off to sleep. That night, a vivid image of a towering multi-mineral man flashed into his mind with a panorama of color unlike anything he had ever experienced. Throwing aside his embroidered covers, the king jumped out of bed and shouted to his bodyguards: “Call all the magicians and astrologers to come at once. I must know the meaning of this dream!”

The king’s wise men were roused and herded into the presence of the bewildered sovereign. “And the king said unto them, I have dreamed a dream, and my spirit was troubled to know the dream.” Daniel 2:3. One of the phony prophets smugly responded, “Tell your servants the dream, and we will give the interpretation.” But as often happens with dreams, the details had already grown cloudy in Nebuchadnezzar’s mind.

These men had claimed divine insight, but the king was beginning to doubt their abilities. This would be the perfect test. “Tell me the dream and the interpretation, and you will be rewarded,” the king told his counselors, “otherwise I will cut you in pieces and turn your homes into dumps!”

The magicians and astrologers had no choice but to admit that they were powerless to explain the king’s dream without first hearing it. Furious with these imposters, the king commanded that all the wise men of Babylon be gathered for execution. However, the Lord still had one person in Babylon who could explain the dream of the colossal Millennial Man.

Daniel 2:28 But there is a God in heaven that revealeth __________, and maketh known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days.

Answer: ____________________

Note: In this dream of the multi-mineral image, God outlined for all future millenniums the rise and fall of the empires that would have a direct influence on His people.

Daniel 2:12 . The king … commanded to __________ all the wise men of Babylon.

Answer: ____________________

Note: The astrologers and magicians of Babylon claimed to have supernatural power, but when they could not reveal the dream to the king, they were shown to be impotent imposters. If the king had recalled the dream, they would have simply manufactured a bogus interpretation. In his rage, Nebuchadnezzar commanded all the wise men to be slain-even those who were not present. Among those absent from the first meeting with the king was a God-fearing captive named Daniel, who had just been trained for the king’s service.

Daniel 2:16 . Daniel went in, and desired of the king that he would give him __________, and that he would shew the king the interpretation.

Daniel 2:17, 18 Then Daniel went to his house, and made the thing known to Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, his companions: That they would desire mercies of the God of heaven concerning this secret.

Answer: ____________________

Note: Daniel requested a little time from Nebuchadnezzar and promised that he would reveal the dream and its meaning. The king, who was still desperate to know the significance of his vision, granted Daniel’s request. Then he and his friends appealed to the only Source who could reveal the king’s dream. They prayed to the God of heaven.

12. Who will set up the final kingdom?

14. After hearing Daniel’s clear interpretation of the dream, what did Nebuchadnezzar say about the Lord?
