The Eternal Blueprint

Class Overview

What is God’s ultimate intention? Ask most Christians this question, and you’ll likely hear something like this: To save us, to glorify Himself, or to make disciples of Jesus in the nations. But what if there is something deeper? What if God has a master plan, a blueprint from which He operates, that has been hidden from many believers for centuries? The apostle Paul unveiled this mysterious plan almost 2,000 years ago in the book of Ephesians, but unfortunately, it has become a mystery once again in the church. If you’ve ever felt a sense of unrest over the often-shallow, man-centered modern approach to Christianity, you know there must be more. And there is. God has an ultimate intention, an original plan and purpose from which we’ve strayed . . . and we need to find our way back. As you will see in The Eternal Blueprint, the way back begins with rediscovering God’s eternal purpose, which has driven the ages of history and will drive the eternal ages to come. Before creation, before the garden, and before the fall, the triune God had a vision for the world—a vision that includes you. What’s the purpose of life? Where do you fit into God’s plans for the world? For eternity? When you discover God’s original intention, you will find your true purpose and meaning in life. When you understand the magnificent plan that God established before the foundation of the world, you will know the reason why you were created. As The Eternal Blueprint explains, God has issued you the invitation of a lifetime . . . literally. You were created to be the Father’s, the Son’s, and the Spirit’s eternal inheritance. Once you understand this life-transforming truth, which is at the center of God’s eternal purpose, you will never be the same.
