John 3

Bk Sec Outline Sec Bk   Manifestation of the Son of God to meet Man’s Need John 3 – 12   Two main Divisions. This great section of John 3 – 12 can be further divided into two smaller divisions.

Philippians 2 presents Christ as a humble man on the earth, and Philippians 3 presents Christ in glory as […]

Satan

Satan’s Fall. It would appear that the original creation (Gen. 1:1) was committed to the hands of angels, over which Satan was the chief. It was an earthly paradise, called “Eden, the garden of God”.

But when unrighteousness was found in Satan, his heart lifted up because of his beauty, he was ejected from the angelic company (Ezek. 28:17), taking […]
