Life is not always fair but
God is always Good!!!

Salvation, God's Idea, a Spiritual Experience!!

God created Adam from the earth, breathed life into his dead body and he became a living person!! God then put Adam to sleep, took a rib from him and created Woman!! God brought the Woman to the Man and they became one!! God gave them the power of choice and when faced with a life or death choice, they chose death. It was a Spiritual Death that plunged them into spiritual darkness because they were still very much alive physically and emotionally when God came calling in the cool of the day! God came daily to fellowship and the day after the plunge into spiritual death was no different for God!! God did as He had always done but on this day Adam hid from God!! Please pay close attention that God's behavior had not been altered in any way!! God's Grace changes us, we do not change it nor can we have any negative effect on His Grace!!
Did Adam go looking for God or did he hide from God? He hid!!
Did God hide or did He go looking for Adam to visit with, as always?? God's Grace set a precedent in the Garden of Eden!! God is still calling out to fallen man that is in spiritual darkness and spiritual death!! How did Adam get out of the spiritual death and darkness?? God called him out of it because Adam's futile attempts with something natural to fix something spiritual was a waste of time!! At the time of this writing I have been preaching for 35 years and I ,with a broken heart, have watched people do all manner of things in the natural trying to fix a spiritual problem. God's Grace works from within, effecting change in the heart and mind of mankind!! When you try to change yourself within by "doing" something in the natural in the name of religion to change your eternal future you are wasting your time. When you do that, you are attempting to reverse God's Divine Order which cannot be done!! You can wash a pig, spray it with religious perfume, put a church outfit on it but it will still be a pig!! May I introduce you to The Savior of the World, His Name is Jesus Christ!!!

"And the Lord God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?"(‭‭Genesis‬ ‭3:9‬ ‭KJV‬‬)

"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."

Daily Perspective

Our future is in the Hands of The Almighty God so we must put our Faith in Him then Trust Him in "all things"!! We cannot not allow our present trying circumstances to define who we are, nor can we allow the weariness of the moment to dictate our future!! If you are alive on planet earth then your circumstances will change like Mississippi weather, 80 degrees one morning and 40 that night. Some of the things we get hit with we might could have looked a little closer at life and stopped them from causing chaos. However there are circumstances beyond our control that we just have to deal with as they come into play. We may not see them coming but Jesus sees and knows all things!! Our God not only knows about them before we do but If we love Him, He will work them out for our good. (Romans 8:28) We must keep our perspective clear and balanced by looking at things from God's point of view, not ours!! The scriptures give us God's perspective on all things either by direct statement or in principle. Read the Bible often, talk to God with your heart and everything will be ok....

"BE NOT AFRAID of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh. For the Lord shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken." (‭Proverbs‬ ‭3‬:‭25-26‬ KJV)

He cometh.......

"For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now."
‭(‭Romans‬ ‭8:22‬ ‭KJV‬‬)

The Creation is groaning because the "Son of God" is about to come to the clouds and call His Bride to Himself!!

"For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord."
‭‭(1 Thessalonians‬ ‭4:16-17‬ ‭KJV‬‬)

The scriptures teach us the Jesus may come at any moment so prepare your hearts to meet our Lord "in the air!"

"The Snare is Broken"

"Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: THE SNARE IS BROKEN, and we are escaped. "(Psalm 124:7)

"The Snare is Broken". The Hope given in this verse is beyond human comprehension! Please read this powerful verse of scripture several times so that you can speak it from memory. Please focus your Faith on the phrase, "the SNARE is BROKEN"! Just walk around all day repeating that phrase and your Faith will begin to rise up out of your Spirit. The Holy Spirit inside you will respond to the Word of God as you confess it's powerful truth. How did God create all that you see, by speaking..... Take charge of your fear today, speak to the chains that bind you and tell them that they are BROKEN!! This is TRUTH and TRUTH makes you FREE!! "And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."(John 8:32). The last three words of PS 124:7 are, "WE ARE ESCAPED"!!! Today I thank my God for freedom
in Christ, I am FREE, the snare is broken and I am escaped!!
I am a Child of the Most High God!!!!

(Proverbs 13:20)

May The Lord Bless Thee......
