Sitting in Sunday School this morning, I had a thought; pastor was teaching on Eternal Security and its application throughout the Bible and to whom it applies and to whom it doesn't. All of a sudden I thought of something: The Bible has three dimensions!
Of course, the first is "What" or "Where." What part of the Bible, what books, what doctrines, etc.
Secondly is "Whom." To whom was it written, to whom is it applicable.
Lastly is "When." When is What applicable to Whom?
Most "Independent, Fundamental, Hellfire and Damnation" Baptists haven't a clue that different parts of the Bible are applicable to different people at different times. God told Adam not to eat of the tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil; He didn't tell him to bring a lamb for sacrifice or accept Jesus Christ as his Saviour!! Noah was told to build a boat, not to be baptized for remission of sins or to refuse the Mark of the Beast. We, as Christians in the Church Age, are part of the Body of Christ: we haven't been commanded to keep the Law, build a boat, or follow the command of the Everlasting Gospel (Rev. 14:7).
Keep it in perspective and remember the Bible is a Three Dimensional Book.
