The Bible not only chronicles God’s interpretation of history but docu­ments God’s ability to foretell the future. The most critical historical event of all is the Cross, which transformed history, bridging the gap that sin cre­ated between God and humanity.

The Holy Bible portrays history with a beginning and an end — a linear pattern. The Scriptures at very outset declares, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” (Gen 1:1). The end of the present world is inextricably tied to the glorious appearing of Jesus Christ — the Second Coming. Between these two points of history, the Great Controversy between God and Satan moves from one event to another.

Scriptural Pursuit for this week examines God’s working in history as seen through the lens of His Word, the Holy Bible.
