There is a Golden Thread that runs through the Bible. It starts in the first chapter of Genesis and runs through the entire Bible, culminating in the last chapter of Revelation.
Along the route the Golden Thread travels, there are hundreds of mileposts that Christ and his apostles verified in their teaching and writings as being key building blocks of what constitutes the Gospel of The Kingdom of God.
Why is this of any importance? With hundreds of different churches claiming to be Christian, and many promoting widely varying beliefs on key scripture subjects, how is one to know who to believe?
That is why the Bible is our only safe guide.
Like with any subject, when you start from the beginning it becomes a lot easier to comprehend what the Bible teaches.
Jesus and the apostles verify the mileposts of this Golden Thread. Starting from the time of creation, they specifically support the real, bodily existence of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, and later the events surrounding Noah, Abraham, Moses, King David, and God’s establishment of the nation of Israel as recorded in the Old Testament. Each mile post represents one small piece of a large puzzle that, when put together, reveals the plan of God’s with man on earth.
With all the confusion amongst varying churches and their widely disparate teachings, our only safe course is to examine what the Bible teaches for ourselves. God has put the basics of his plan in place in the form of this Golden Thread running through the Bible, and made it sufficiently easy to understand if we just trust and listen. For example, Jesus confirmed the Bible account of creation in the first chapter of Genesis in Mark 10: 6 “But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.” and then again in Mark 13: 19.For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be. In this way, Jesus confirmed the starting point of this Golden Thread of instruction as being at the time of creation.
The apostle Paul in Romans 5: 14, affirms Adam’s position as the ancestor of all living human beings.
Romans 5:14 “Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinnedafter the similitude of Adam’s transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.”
The seeds of what we today call the Gospel of the Kingdom of God were alluded to in the early chapters of Genesis and so that time becomes the birthplace of the Golden Thread of Gods plan with man on earth. Hopefully, in a future article, to be published soon, we can examine what these seeds were and what they pointed too.
