IT’S YOUR CHOICE

When God created Adam and put him in the Garden of Eden, God gave Adam dominion over all the earth. Let’s have a look at Genesis 1:26-31,
26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.
31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

THE LAST SHALL BE FIRST

The Lord Jesus spoke a lot in parables, speaking plain truths that were hidden from the foundation of the world, yet only those who had “ears to hear” understood their meanings. Many times the things He said were directly opposite to our natural understanding, like in Matthew 16:25,
For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.

IS IT WORTH IT?

When you go shopping to buy something, it’s only normal to look at the price tag to see what it costs, that is, unless you are rich and don’t care what it costs, but few of us are rich. We try to get the best value for the price. Now if you don’t happen to be satisfied with what you bought, sometimes you can get a refund. But there’s something we all spend, and that is time. And if you don’t like what you got for your time spent, sorry, there is no refund, ever. You can never replace that time, it’s GONE! Well, what does that have to do with you? Everything!

SIGNS FOLLOWING

On the day of Pentecost, when the Holy Spirit was poured out on those gathered in the upper room worshipping God, the power of God began manifesting mightily in signs and wonders through the believers. Some people think that only the original disciples did signs and wonders, but that isn’t the case at all. What good would it have been if the Holy Spirit only did miracles for the original disciples, then quit after they died? Well, it would have given the body of Christ a jump start, alright, but it would have soon fizzled out. And “fizzling out” isn’t what God had in mind at all on Pentecost. It was only the BEGINNING!

FOR THE JOY SET BEFORE US

It is natural to get discouraged from time to time as the devil hurls his arrows at us, and he uses that to distract us from our main purpose in life, and that is to daily grow closer to the LORD.  It is written in Hebrews 12:1-2,
1  Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
2  Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. Continue Reading »
