Providence: God continuously preserves and governs all creatures. He directs all events, yet not in such a way as to be the author of sin (or even to approve of sin) or to destroy the free will and responsibility of people. God makes some things to happen, others He allows to happen, but nothing just happens.
Rapture: This is not a word used in the Bible, but is used to describe an event described in the Bible; that is, when believers are “caught up to be with the Lord” at Christ’s return (see 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18).
Redemption: To buy out of slavery. People were in slavery to sin and Jesus’ death on the cross was the ransom that bought us out.
Regeneration: New life. Another term for being born again. This is when God gives us new spiritual life.
Revelation: Revelation is God revealing himself. There is General Revelation in that God reveals Himself through creation and conscience (Romans 1:18-2:16). There is Special Revelation in which God reveals Himself through the Bible.
Sabbath: The seventh day of the week. A day of rest and worship.
