a proper beginning
A Proper Beginning
  • Can a building be built “from the top down?”
  • In Bible study, we start from the top and work backward, if we ever do.
  • Like we read a “mystery” novel, skip to the end to see “who done it”.
  • No foundation – To the Jew first and then… Why?
  • The foundation is the Old Testament.
  • 2 Timothy 3:15
the problem with religion
The Problem With “Religion”
  • With no foundation, we have no stability. We are “tossed to and fro with every wind of doctrine.”
  • What is the mission and purpose of God for man?
  • Recreation, education, social affairs?
  • A mean nothing, do nothing church.
  • Read with me – Micah 4:1-8. We’ll consider 10 points from this passage (quickly).
importance of god s new place
Importance of God’s New Place
  • “Will be established as the chief…”
  • Daniel 2:35-44
  • Mt Zion – God’s dwelling, but 3:12 says it will be “plowed”.
  • How important is the “church”, God’s new dwelling? I Cor. 6:19
  • But, “the church isn’t important” in modern thinking. We need this foundation point.
the when of the establishment
The “When” of the Establishment
  • “In the last days…”
  • Peter in Acts 2 quotes Joel, “This is that which was spoken of…”
  • “When the Bible says “This is That”, That’s That!
  • In the first century, around 30 AD. Not before, and not 1900 years later.
the where of the establishment
The “Where” of the Establishment
  • “Even the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.”
  • Luke 24:47; Acts 1:4-8
  • Not Elmyra, N. Y. or England, or Switzerland, or any other place.
the inhabitants of god s dwelling place
The Inhabitants of God’s Dwelling Place
  • “Many nations”.
  • The old dwelling place of God was nationalistic – Jerusalem of the Jews.
  • But Daniel said it would fill the earth.
  • Look at the “great commission” – Matt. 28:18-20; Mark 16:15-16
the function of god s dwelling place
The Function of God’s Dwelling Place
  • Evangelism – “From Zion will go forth the law…”
  • I Timothy 3:15
  • A tremendous invitation – rooted in this Old Testament passage.
  • “Come let us go up to the mountain of God’s House…”
  • This isn’t an O. T. concept.
god s intent for his people
God’s Intent For His People
  • Peace – “Swords into plow shares.”
  • Isaiah 11:9; Eph. 2:15-18
  • By the blood of Jesus we have (1) Peace with God – by his stripes we are healed. (2) Peace of mind – that which passes understanding. (3) Peace with each other.
  • A church at war within is not this Zion. Where pride, stubbornness and ego rule are not God’s dwelling place – James 3:13ff.
the promise of god s dwelling place
The Promise of God’s Dwelling Place
  • Prosperity – “Sit under his vine and fig tree.”
  • Israel was a land “flowing with milk and honey.” What a promise to people who had wondered in wilderness for 40 years.
  • For us – “every spiritual blessing” ( Eph. 1:3).
  • God gives us physical things, but that’s not our true wealth.
the foundation of god s dwelling place
The Foundation of God’s Dwelling Place
  • “Walk in the name of the Lord our God” – authority!
  • The world will always follow it’s gods.
  • We follow Jehovah by listening to his commands.
the duration
The Duration
  • “Forever”
  • This isn’t a word that applies to human kingdoms.
  • Luke 1:32-33!
  • Not 1000 years.
the reign of christ
The Reign of Christ
  • “The Lord will reign forever”
  • Over all who respond to His Will.
  • Anyone – the lame, the outcasts – Jew and Gentile.
  • All have received the invitation – but we must respond. Heb. 2:9; 5:9,
