This week on MelVee Sabbath School Elder Melusi Ndhlalambi is joined by Shaun Ryan and Nixon Kadiramwando to discuss the first of the new series on the theme Rebellion and Redemption. The study is entitled “Crisis in Heaven” and is underpinned by Revelation 7:10, which says “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!”
In the lesson discussion you shall discover that while God was accused to be unjust, and untrustworthy, in fact “THE LAW OF LOVE IS THE FOUNDATION OF THE GOVERNMENT OF GOD.” If all people obeyed His principles [important rules] of righteousness [right living], they would be happy always. God wants all His people to serve Him lovingly out of an appreciation of His character [thoughts; feelings; actions]. God takes no pleasure in a forced obedience. To all people He gives freedom of will. In that way they may give Him willing and voluntary service.” If all people would accept the truth that they owed God their loyalty and love, there would be perfect peace throughĺout the universe.
But it took only one (gifted Lucifer, the anointed Cherub) to spoil everything. Lucifer thought that he could do a better job than God did. He wanted God’s position and the glory (praise) and honor that went with it. Satan’s desire for power led to a “war in heaven” (Revelation 12:7). He tricked Adam and Eve at the tree of the knowledge of good and evil in Eden. And we have been living with the results of that war ever since. The plan of salvation is God’s way of dealing with the rebellion (war against God) and bringing back the order and peace that Satan has taken away.
