“Rebellion and Redemption” is the title of our Sabbath School Lesson for the first quarter of 2016. The title itself creates excitement. It reveals the reality of what happened in heaven when angels lead by Lucifer rebel against God. It showed how the power of darkness marred the beautiful creation by tempting the first parents. It manifested how sin damages even the relationship of men. On the other hand it is also a revelation of God’s plan of salvation. His plan to redeem the fallen men and women through His love and by His love we can be save by grace.
Our Sabbath School Lesson for the first quarter of 2016 delves into the origin of the great controversy that has involved all of us and the world that we are living. The lessons are divided into thirteen (13) very interesting topic which was carefully presented for us to understand clearly how God manifests his love amidst the chaos world that we are living and designs a plan that would restore his beautiful and perfect creation and that includes you and me.
These are the topics of our lessons.
- Crisis in Heaven
