The Lord Jesus Will Return Quickly
Jesus made this statement as recorded in Revelation 22:12 "And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be."
Jesus is coming back soon. But what will be the signs of His coming? What shall His coming look like? What will we hear? When will that great day come to pass? Are you ready to meet Him? What will you say? What will He say to you?
Take a look at our latest Bible Quiz, The Coming of Christ.
What are the elementary principles of Christianity? What comes to your mind? Does the Bible actually say what these are? Let's take a look at Hebrews 5:12-6:2:
"For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil. Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment."
In this passage of scripture, we can see that the "first principles" (or elementary principles), or the "foundation" consists of these:
- Repentance from dead works and faith toward God
- The doctrine (teaching) of baptisms
- Laying on of hands
- Resurrection of the dead
- Eternal Judgement
Were these the foundation of Christianity that you have learned? If not, let's take a deeper look at what the basics of our faith should be.
