Stepping Stones to the New Jerusalem
The Bible indicates that God created man to live forever in a close personal fellowship with Him. When man disobeyed God, he chose to bring an end to that relationship. It was God's desire to have that relationship restored, if man would choose to respond. God demonstrated His desire in His rebuke of Satan in Genesis 3:15. The catalyst for that restoration in this verse is shown to be Jesus, God's Son. Events in the life of Jesus will be symbolized by the seven major feasts of Israel and presented as five Stepping Stones to the New Jerusalem. Stepping stones provide a safe place to put one's foot where the ground is dangerous. These five stepping stones can lead man safely back to the restored relationship with God both in this life and in the New Jerusalem. Man, though, must choose to step out in faith on those stepping stones. Karl and his wife Peggy reside in Manchester, TN. Karl is a retired U.S. Marine who has himself stepped out in faith on the first two stepping stones. Shortly after his retirement, he was introduced to Jesus and accepted Him as Savior and Lord of his life. He is a teacher of the Word of God in Sunday School. When given the opportunity, he leads in other Bible studies and serves as a lay preacher. He has served as Chairman of Deacons in his church. Like others who have put their faith in Jesus, Karl awaits the process toward the fully restored fellowship with God that is depicted in the last three feasts of Israel.
