Any of God's humans might benefit from a interpreting of the 1st volumes of this set. i discovered myself highlighting web page after web page and telling family and friends approximately each perception I encountered at each chance. What distinguishes this remedy of theology from others i've got tried to learn is the truth that the writer provides his fabric as a pastor to a congregation instead of as a textbook to a seminary classification. 5 stars for the 1st volumes.
I am completely confident quantity 3 is every piece nearly as good because the first , except you're a dispensationalist. now not that he does not make a few telling issues. i used to be struck demanding by means of the truth that the doctrine of the rapture of the church had no longer existed sooner than 1830 and got here into being now not because the results of cautious religious study and exegesis yet because the results of a 'revelation' at a prophecy convention. i used to be considering there rather could be whatever to his college of eschatology until eventually he all started a presentation of the booklet of Revelation. it is not that i feel Dr. Lloyd-Jones is useless fallacious; i used to be so burdened by way of the spiritualizing of totally every thing that I simply gave up all desire of realizing any prophecy below his system.
Having acknowledged that, i'm completely happy i purchased the books; i'm going to preserve them and check with them frequently and suggest them to others each likelihood i am getting.

Could it be that most of our particular problems arise from the fact that we do not start with this desire to know God and put this before everything else? And here I have to introduce a term, a big and yet vital word. God in His eternal and absolute being is incomprehensible. God, of course, is known most easily in His dealings with men and women, but, as we have seen, the Bible does teach that God can be known, even in His essential being. Here we find the revelation that God [p 52] has given of Himself in the light of various statements He has made; surely these are meant to teach us about the being of God as well as His dealings with mankind.
Let us be content with the revelation that is given. This is final; this is absolute. Let us admit our inability to prove, and let us together enjoy the great salvation in which we 38 all participate, and look forward to the day when the hidden things shall be made plain, and we shall know even as we are already known. A great deal more could be said by way of introduction, but we must move on, and the first doctrine to which we must pay attention, a doctrine that is placed first in the Bible itself, is the doctrine of God.
And Paul preaching to the people of Athens used exactly the same words: ‘God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands’ (Acts 17:24). You find this in the first two of the Ten Commandments and it is repeated elsewhere. But perhaps the most striking proof of the spirituality 43 of God is another truth concerning Him which we shall be considering later, namely His omnipresence, the truth that God is everywhere, and that He is everywhere at one and the same time.
