Title: "What Will I See In Heaven "
This passage teaches that heaven is a very real place, for all redeemed people to live for eternity. After all, everything in our spiritual life and destiny is in heaven , therefore, we ought to know a little bit about this wonderful place. John begins to describe heaven in this chapter and finishes it out in the next chapter.
The Reformations of the 16th century was no less than the rebirth and resurrection of the church of Jesus Christ from false doctrine that laid an impossible burden on people and robbed christ of his glory as the all sufficent Savior of sinners through personal faith in him. The recovery of key doctrine is expressed in later adopted mottos of the five solas- Scripture alone, Grace aloe, faith alone, Christ alone for the glory of God alone.
God graciously provided peace, security, and wealth for Solomon and the people of Isarel so that they could refelect His glory and establish His worship in Jerusalem through the building of the Temple. He often does the same for His Chruch.
Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.  Therefore by the deeds of the law no flesh will be justified in His sight, for by the law is the knowledge of sin.
 But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets,  even the righteousness of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, to all and on all who believe. For there is no difference;  for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,  being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus,  whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed,  to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.
 Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? Of works? No, but by the law of faith.  Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith apart from the deeds of the law.  Or is He the God of the Jews only? Is He not also the God of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also,  since there is one God who will justify the circumcised by faith and the uncircumcised through faith.  Do we then make void the law through faith? Certainly not! On the contrary, we establish the law.
Jesus was walking into a trap. Several traps, actually.
When Jesus entered the Temple in Matthew 21, the Pharisees, Sadducees and others planned to ask Him questions that might trap or make our Lord look bad before others. They wanted to destroy or hurt His credibility. In today's study, we'll see how Jesus responded.
Questions That We'll Answer:
A) What was the irony about the questions that Jesus was facing?
B) What was the point of Christ's parable about the wedding feast?
C) What happened to the improperly dressed 'wedding guest?'
Solomon received wisdom from God and promptly put it to use when he had to judge between two women and a living baby. We can learn perspective from this story as well as see evidence of God's Spirit on Solomon.
Not giving SELF what SELF wants requires love to Christ coupled with devotion to Christ and a strength and desire that none of us possesses naturally! God must give us everything to walk with Him, or else we fail!
If you're "IN CHRIST" you know the danger of allowing SELF to have his or her way! If you would deny YOURSELF, you must walk CONTRARY to YOURSELF! If you would DO THIS, you must be led and made strong in this opposition against self by the Holy Spirit!
