1 Not merely reasonable... Note Ps 92:6 DocTrinsograce Wed 07/23/14, 6:50pm 240915
  "I hold that belief in God is not merely as reasonable as other belief, or even a little or infinitely more probably true than other belief; I hold rather that unless you believe in God you can logically believe in nothing else." --Cornelius Van Til (1895-1987)
2 The Treasure of Fearing the Lord Note Ps 22:23 DocTrinsograce Tue 07/22/14, 5:33pm 240913
  "Christian, let God's distinguishing love to you be a motive to you to fear Him greatly. He has put His fear in your heart, and may not have given that blessing to your neighbor, perhaps not to your husband, your wife, your child, or your parent. Oh, what an obligation should this thought lay upon your heart to greatly fear the Lord! Remember also that this fear of the Lord is His treasure, a choice jewel, given only to favorites, and to those who are greatly beloved." --John Bunyan (1628-1688)

4 God's Grace Preceding a Man's Need Note 2 Cor 9:8 DocTrinsograce Mon 07/21/14, 12:24pm 240904
  "When I heard those parts of the Scriptures read in the Church which extol the grace of God, and lower the free-will of man, for example, 'It is not of him that willeth, or of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy,' and many similar passages, -- this doctrine of grace was very disagreeable to my ungrateful mind. But afterwards I began to perceive some few distant rays of light respecting this matter. I seemed to see, but by no means clearly, that the grace of God is prior, both in nature and in time, to any good actions that men can possibly perform; and I return thanks to God, from whom proceeds every good thing, for thus freely enlightening my understanding." --Thomas Bradwardine (1290-1349)
5 Blessing Arising from Penitent Petition Note Luke 1:68 DocTrinsograce Sun 07/20/14, 7:46am 240903
  "You dare not lift your hands to place God's name in blessing on His people until you have first clasped them in penitent petition for His grace." --Edmund P. Clowney
6 Only One Way of Salvation Note Ps 62:6 DocTrinsograce Sat 07/19/14, 10:41am 240898
  "Does God have a separate purpose and redemptive program for Israel and the church? Or, does the gospel of Jesus Christ fulfill God’s purpose to gather a people from every tribe, tongue, and nation, Jews and Gentiles alike, into one worldwide family? When the Apostle Paul declares in Romans 1 that the gospel is the 'power of God unto salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Gentile' (Rom. 1:16), he declares that there is one way of salvation for all who believe in Jesus Christ. Yet he simultaneously affirms that this salvation does not displace or supersede God’s redemptive purpose for the Jews but, rather, fulfills it. The ongoing debate about Israel and the church needs to maintain the Apostle’s balance, neither separating Israel and the church nor displacing Israel with the church." --Cornelis Venema
7 The Precious Ends of Affliction Note Job 36:15 DocTrinsograce Sat 07/19/14, 6:48am 240890
  "As the wicked are hurt by the best things, so the godly are bettered by the worst." --William Jenkyn (1618-1635)
8 They all are the work of His hands Note Job 34:19 DocTrinsograce Thu 07/17/14, 7:03pm 240886
  "Moreover, as God respects no persons, so He respects no conditions upon which He gives salvation to us." --Thomas Goodwin (1600-1680)
9 A Sure Foundation in our Triune God Note 2 Cor 5:5 DocTrinsograce Wed 07/16/14, 5:06pm 240885
  "Our spiritual estate [condition] standeth upon a sure [certain] bottom [foundation]: the beginning is from God the Father, the dispensation from the Son, and the application from the Holy Ghost.... It is free in the Father, sure in the Son, ours in the Spirit." --Thomas Manton (1620-1677)
10 I believe that part of the answer as to Note Gen 1:1 Trin Tue 07/15/14, 6:20pm 240883
  I believe that part of the answer as to why God created man is that he wanted to establish a Kingdom here on earth. He made man in order to give him dominion over the earth and to give him an inheritance. You also talked about suffering. Sometimes this is due to our own actions. Your question is two parts. I will address the question about man's existence.

26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all[a] the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”

Jesus mentions kingdom a number of times during his life on earth. He also taught us to pray in this manner.

Matthew 6:9-13In this manner, therefore, pray:

Our Father in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name.
Thou kingdom come..Thou will be done On earth as it is in heaven...

Daniel 7:27

And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.

I hope this helps...


Matthew 5:5

5 Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.
11 Judgment of God Note Lam 3:65 DocTrinsograce Tue 07/15/14, 4:46pm 240882
  "The most tremendous judgment of God in this world is the hardening of the hearts of men." --John Owen (1616-1683)
12 will there be animals in heaven Note Bible general DocTrinsograce Tue 07/15/14, 4:40pm 240881
  Hi, Bear...

In theology the condition of man after death and prior to the resurrection is called the interim state. It is an abnormal condition, which will be corrected in the New Earth (see Revelation 21). Isaiah is speaking of this full restoration of creation in Isaiah 65. There is nothing explicit in Scripture that would indicate that animals continue to exist after death and certainly nothing at all about their being part of the resurrection. In your example relative to the white horse mentioned twice in Revelation -- even assuming we take all the animal references in that apocalypic work as literal beasts -- we certainly have nothing whatsoever to suggest that it was a horse that was once alive on the earth only to have gone to heaven after death. I sympathize with your love of animals. I hope that your love of the truth will be even greater. The things that God reveals to us in His Word are what we build our understanding upon (Deuteronomy 29:29), but we do not want to add things that are not there (Revelation 22:18-19).

I rather suspect that what the future holds in Christ will be so utterly delightful, incredible, and wonderous that the things we hold as treasures in this temporal world will fade into utter unimportance (1 Corinthians 2:9).

In Him, Doc
13 All man's own merits... Note Ps 12:4 DocTrinsograce Mon 07/14/14, 7:19pm 240879
  "The self-righteous man thinks that God will give him rewards for fasting and labor. He thinks that without these God will give him nothing. He thinks precisely that God is someone who will save him through his works, not for the sake of free grace. To this fiction, 'God will save me through my works,' he attributes salvation. This is the most persistent struggle and battle of the world against God. No one wants to rely on God's glory alone and repudiate all his own merits." --J. J. Pelikan (1999)
