Begin study:

 

 

Worthy means to be deserving, qualified, suitable,
due reward.

 

And who is worthy?
God.  And
more specifically the one who occupies the throne in heaven, namely Jesus
Christ, of whom this entire Bible, is all about.

 

And why is Christ worthy?  Because of all that He is, His essence, His
attributes, His power, His plan, His ability, His trustworthyness,
His creation, His destiny that He has prepared for every person, His
righteousness, His justice, His grace, and on and on and on.  The entire content of chapter four, which we
have just finished studying, is a testimony for all who have the ability to see
the truth.

 

We have been able to peer into heaven, through John’s
vision, and to see the perfect life of peace offered by God, to see the awesome
power and ability and stability and provision of God, in accomplishing that
perfect life, and the total absence of conflict, strife, deceit, lies, and
burdens of all types.

 

Jesus Christ is qualified to receive glory, honor
and authority, not because someone has given it to Him, but because He alone
has done all of the work of creation and history, for the end purpose of good
for all.

 

Jesus Christ created all things.  The word for create, ‘ktizo,’
means to manufacture by means of proprietary right.

 

It is God who created the angels. It is God who
created the universe. It is God who
created life of all types. And God
created them all, with perfection, Isa. 45:18.

 

It is Satan who caused deterioration, flaws,
defects, and chaos in the universe and in life, Isa. 14:16-17, Rom 8:19-22.

 

The universe was created out of nothing, and it was
created in an instant. The universe was created because of the will of God, and
not from its own circumstances, and not from the source of its own components.  The universe is not self-existent, not a
recurring phenomena, does not possess authority over itself.

 

Proprietary, means the sole ownership of God, in
design, invention, application and function.
God caused the universe to come into existence,
and God sustains the universe through the various laws that He alone
invented. The laws of nature are neither
natural nor accidental.

 

One would presume that the next universe (a better
one), will have an entirely different set of rules which will govern it.  That thought alone should get your
imaginative juices flowing!

 

And therefore, since God is worthy, because of all
that He is and who He is, and what He is, He alone holds the documents of
history (the divine decrees), in which is written the entire content of human
history, and more specifically the documents upon which is recorded the final
years of mans rule on planet earth – the Tribulation.

 

And those details are about to be revealed in the
next chapter

 

 

 

End of study

 

 

 




 

Study [by instruction],

to show thyself approved [spiritually mature]

unto God,

a workman [student]

that need not be ashamed [ignorant],

rightly dividing [learning, understanding, discerning]

the word of truth [Bible doctrine].

If you can dream and not make dreams your master,

If you can think and not let thoughts narrow your views,

If you can meet triumph with disaster equally,

If you can learn and see your full meaning and purpose in life,

Then you can believe in Christ, learn Bible doctrine, and grow far beyond the potential that God has prepared for you.

These studies are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.

And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever.

To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.

The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.

But each person has to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.

Keep in the Word, Isa. 41:10.
