LESSON 10 ADDITIONAL NOTES
1 John 2:15 What are you told not to love?
1 John 2:16 Why are you not to love the world?
1 John 2:17 What will happen to all the things of this world?
Carefully understand what The Bible says is above.
1 John 5:7
The Person of God is above.
God is seeking a love-relationship with you. God is saying to you now, “Will you seek me . . . will you love me with all of your heart, soul, mind and strength?” See Isaiah 55:6.
The Word of God is in Heaven above.
His Name is above every name.
There is no other Name whereby we may be saved. His Name is certainly exalted.
But His Word is exalted above His Name.
There is a difference in knowing someone’s name, knowing about someone and knowing them personally. God is saying, “Will you seek to really know Me?”
1 John 2:12-14
Those in the spiritual father stage have grown to know God. You are not to just know the Bible; you are to know your Father.
The Throne of God is above.
Three times in the Bible, God brings someone up to Heaven to see His Throne.
Revelation 4:1-6, 9-11
God is always worshipped at His Throne.
John 4:23 God seeks worshippers.
The Family of God is above
The Bible speaks of the family of God in heaven above and the family of God on the earth.
When you lead people on the earth to Christ and disciple them - you are growing the family of God. God is saying to us, “Will you seek to make disciples?”
