The Truth about God’s Election pt. 3 Understanding what God sees!

To understand God’s choices for us we must get a grasp on how God views creation.
According to Scripture, God is “The high and lofty one who inhabits eternity.” Isa 57.

You will note here that God literally lives as eternity itself, God is wall to wall eternity, no end no beginning.
At some point BEFORE creation was begun the godhead decided what would happen in every “Motion of creation” from the beginning of “time” to the end of “time.” (Gen 1:31 “And God saw everything that He had made and behold, it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning the sixth day.” and in Prov 3:19 “The LORD by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens.”)

Creation is “the act of making, by new combinations of matter, invested with new forms and properties, and of subjecting to different laws; the act of shaping and organizing; as the creation of man and other animals, of plants and minerals.” As Heb 11:3 says: “Faith convinces us that God created the world through his word. This means what can be seen was made by something that could not be seen.” Remember that “Time” is absolute or it’s relative; absolute time is considered without any relation to bodies or their motions. Relative time is the sensible measure of any portion of duration, by means of motion. It was a creation of God and will have an end one day soon (Rev 10:6 “And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:”), it was given to man to give him perspective on eternity and the Duration or continuance of God’s existence without beginning or end.

From our viewpoint of finite time we can see that God is better equiped to lay our lives out before him and tell us what to do and what not to do! God sees our existence as if it were a “time-line layed out on a drawing pad” with each personal decision we have made and will make, every pitfall, bad choice and every good decision. Our whole life is being viewed from heaven in detail, our past, our present and the yet future.

Ecc 3:11 “He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.”

Of this verse Clarke’s Commentary said “God has deeply rooted the idea of eternity in every human heart; and every considerate man sees, that all the operations of God refer to that endless duration. And it is only in eternity that man will be able to discover what God has designed by the various works he has formed.”

It was God the Father and the Will he spoke….

(John 1:1-3 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and without Him not even one thing came into being that has come into being.”) plus the Spirit of life from God

( Gen 1:1-2 “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth; and the earth being without form and empty, and darkness on the face of the deep, and the Spirit of God moving gently on the face of the waters,….”)

that decided together every aspect of what would transpire through out time from the very atom’s to the thought you just had… (2Peter 3:8 “But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.”) in time. We NOT God are limited and controlled by time.

God filled Limited “time” that he designed with his “Unlimited Will” (His will is defined as what his heart says must take place to make his creation run effectively, his will is his word which is his BOND to us, what it says STANDS in eternity NOT what we think it means! He released his Word (Will) through the Spirit of creation to form the world in perfection….in the beginning.

Creation had NO flaws whatsoever UNTIL MAN TOOK THE WRONG PATH AND SINNED. {Note that the bible says that sin is like a “personal entity” in Genesis 4:7 “If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door.” The Hebrew here indicates that sin is something that lies in wait to attack like a person hiding in the shadows or as a crouching slave doing the bidding of his master.

The spirit of Sin is a like a virus that has entered into creation at the core of its D.N.A. structure and like a worm that has burrowed into our existence to take captive and enslave all of God’s perfection. The ‘God’s Word’ translation says it best:

Gen 4:7 “If you do well, won’t you be accepted? But if you don’t do well, sin is lying outside your door ready to attack. It wants to control you, but you must master it.”

From God’s perspective his creation has been marred and destroyed by “Sin” what would you do if something had entered your house and raped and destroyed all of what you loved and provided for all your life? Would you let it continue? Would you intervene? I would!

So why do we think God any different when he attempts to change the course of his own creation through Christ? Does he not have that right just as we have the right to change our circumstances for our family?

God’s choices are always based around how to deliver US from sin, our enemy is sin not God. Sin that is interwoven with our personal souls. This is his highest goal, to deliver us from ourselves! Just to understand that God is thinking of my existence in every action he takes is to put all else in perspective!


21 Truths About The Election of God: Part 2

Here is Truth number 2, a very important thought to consider about God’s Election of man to salvation. It is that God’s purpose for his creation preceded the work of his creation, that in his foreknowledge God knew every movement of the history of every atomic particle through out time and its relationship to your life and the lives of every man, woman, and child. God knew what you would decide to do in his plan before creation was born into existence. With that knowledge in mind let us realize that Satan and ALL of Hell itself CANNOT change a single thing ABOUT your Salvation…ever! No lie from him can alter your peace of mind unless YOU decide otherwise but the change is ONLY COSMETIC in nature not FACTUAL!

Acts 1:18 Plainly states..”Known to God are ALL HIS WORKS from the beginning of the world.”

Who are we to question the God that formed the smallest sub-atomic particle in the palm of his hand, that knew I would one day accept his grace and be saved? We presume to know more than the creator because of the pride we have in our small-minded accomplishments, never taking into consideration just how far from perfect we are! You see, God started perfection and Sin spoiled that perfection; twisting into the exact opposite of its intent in our lives. It is our IMPERFECTION that blinds us to our own ignorance and thus deceives us into believing the opposite of what will bring true peace.

We as human beings stand here judging God’s FINISHED WORKS with our imperfect little minds and actions BUT fail to judge our works the same as those of God….Why is that? Are we just afraid to face our failure as imperfect beings? Is it so hard for us to believe that someone else holds the keys to our success? Are we so filled with pride as to believe that we in our many imperfections could ever make a perfect thought about  our eternal destiny?

Just what is God’s purpose anyway? We define Purpose as “the intent behind an action being done, an object existing or being made or used for something.” God’s purpose then, was synonymous with the goal or the “intended result” of his actions in creation. Nothing that God did in creation ever conflicted with anything else in creation, there was perfect balance until SIN entered at the core of creation and ruined perfection. Each creative act of God accomplished  his intent of heart and it was ‘good”. Now because of “Sin’s mess” God must do an “end-around” the mess using the problem to the advantage of the person. God is perfect wisdom and knows the end from the beginning even though in our pride we think it could be done better…why? Because of demonic knowledge being inserted into our minds, which in some cases has validity not because Satan knows more than God but because HE KNOWS MORE THAN WE DO!

Purpose is a “designed fail-safe” in every particle in the universe that even “sin” cannot change, it may delay the obvious but purpose will prevail no matter what. The cause of the universe is God. And as he is outside of the physical creation he made and as Time itself is not eternal, but a created element, God can work unrestricted. Satan on the other hand is bound within the concept of Time and must act within its limitations. In eternity there is NO CLOCK to track us down. God operates on an eternal framework NOT on a Limited Time framework, that’s why his timing seems off from ours. When God WILLS something done he wills it from eternity where there is no beginning nor end, therefore what he wills HAS ALWAYS BEEN from his perspective of timelessness! When Satan “Wills” something done on the other hand it is bound to the timing of God not Satan, and thus ruled over by God and his church. We through the power of God can change the will of Satan in the lives of men and thus bring into perfection that which was imperfect, but is never as easy as it sounds in this sentence. After-all we are dealing with a being who after God is the most wise and knowledgable creäture in existence though imperfect in that knowledge because of his fall from heaven. Even in heaven before Satan’s fall, God was ALL-KNOWING as he still is! Satan is NO match for God’s knowledge nor his purpose for that matter, but Satan being a master at deception giving him the ability to manipulate his limited knowledge to seem more than he is and that is enough to deceive man.

“Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created” (Revelation 4:11).

Since God’s WILL is Eternal in nature it would be wrong for us to think of anything in the word of God as grounded to this limited existence or its impure science, if it states it in the word of God (which is his written WILL) THEN ALL THAT IS WRITTEN HAS BEEN FULFILLED ALREADY in Gods perspective. It would be totally correct to think of what God states in the Word of God as “SENT PRE-FULFILLED”  as written down 1,000’s of years ago, because when God says something IT IS ACCOMPLISHED AS IT LEAVES HIS LIPS! As the bible says in Hebrews 11:1 “Faith is (NOT JUST CONTAINS) THE EVIDENCE of things NOT NOW SEEN.” The Bible has WORDS that are the containers of FAITH (OR EVIDENCE to our world of God.) God’s promises come to us CONTAINING THE FULFILLMENT OF WHAT IS ASKED FOR within them, it is not “TIME” that’s required to believe BUT “GOD’S TIMING”, for if God sent the answer he knows the moment his purpose must be released to be effective within his creation. God made a plan for all of Eternity that was perfect in every detail….Satan plans his plans to interfere with God’s perfections BUT what even Satan cannot understand that God’s purposes once proclaimed from his essence cannot ever be reverted from. Satan is self-deceived, believing that HE not God can alter creation to his reputation and likeness. This blindness has passed to all men through sin and is not repairable except through repentance. True repentance places us in the position to be realigned with God’s original purpose which is totally in opposition to Satan’s plan for us and puts us on his “Hit list” to attack harder than others who follow his plan! This is why Bad things happen to “Repented” Good people who follow the original creative plan of God.

It is NOT in our power to know ALL there is to know of God’s perfect plans for us but it is in our power to know they are “perfect for us” in this time even as more of his plan is revealed in the next moment of time. It is required of us not to know the “end of plan” but to follow the plan to that end with much patience of soul. We as his body can find comfort in the working out of our lives as ALREADY accomplished before the foundations of creation by God but the man who knows not God’s working in his life finds this appalling to him, that someone else has control over his destiny. It is the NOT knowing that godless men take comfort in, because in not knowing is no guilt and in no guilt is false peace. But for the true believer peace is found in the knowing that God is in control. What makes the difference? Surrender of self-will to God’s will, takes the Christian from “no knowledge of true peace” to an in-depth peace of  soul that is layered every day with new revelations of God’s plan for him or her!

This is from a Lame web-site called http://godisimaginary.com/i6.htm and as can be plainly seen they get this stupid idea from “so-called believers” who have NO grounding in reality whatsoever and use this line of reason to say God’s plan is evil with this reasoning attached: “God’s plan” is the way that Christians traditionally explain things like amputations, cancer, hurricanes and car accidents. For example, if a Christian dies a painful and tragic death because of cancer, she dies as part of God’s plan. Her death has a purpose. God called her home for a reason. Even if something bad happens to a Christian, it is actually good because it is part of God’s plan.” and thus the result is this dumb statement:”If the concept of “God’s plan” is true, you can first of all see that God wants us to be aborting children. Every single abortion is planned by God, so God must be doing it for a reason.”

This line of reasoning has possessed the ungodly mind to discredit God when in fact it reveals just how far from perfect we are. This IN NO WAY is the truth, God’s plan has never been more misrepresented than in this way. They are assuming that all evil is a part of his plan when the bible is clear that evil is the by-product of man’s own desire coming in conflict with God’s purpose for good. That does not mean that God will not use man’s screw-up to get us back to his original perfect plan without the screw-up. Man not God is the creator of evil desire, and God does not DO EVIL , HE USES THE INTENT OF EVIL FOR A GOOD END that would not have happened without His intervention! The intent of Abortion is to do murder to the unborn but God’s intent is to turn this around for good..but how? First of all Abortion is not a single victim sin, it hurts all connected to it including the doctor performing the deed. So it is God’s purpose to save all involved after the fact, but he was not planning the death of the child to do it that is on man’s conscience. God can save by many and by few, from sin or through sin, that choice is ours. Does a doctor make men sick by intention only that he might heal them later? If men do not do this and we are made in God’s image, then God cannot be said to do this either by the same rules of logic!

No so-called Proof on the above site is unexplainable with simple spiritual logic. The problem is not what they say but with the direction of their question, it is always presupposed that God is imaginary, that he does not exist and in this state of mind no evidence is good enough to convince the mind otherwise. Even if God himself stood before an Atheist proving his power, the Atheist would never believe and blame the “God who isn’t there” for the whole mess he’s in. This is the mixed up state of the mind in the darkness of deception, because to believe in anything the Atheist says begs the question of God’s existence. If what the Atheist says of God is true then he MUST EXIST albeit in an evil twisted state but if God is NOT THERE then every word they use to insult him is pointless drivel ment to make them feel better in their denial!

Remember, the plan of God is not the same plan that Satan has for our lives and the two will always conflict with each other. The Atheist denies Satan’s existence so they cannot grasp the idea of a second plan in conflict with God’s plan, and the Church stepped in much conflict of its own in its belief of both so how can the unbeliever ever know the difference if we don’t? The world looks to false religion to see a God that’s repelled by religion’s hypocrisy and hates mans evil mental attempts to understand him that come short of his greatness. God can ONLY be understood through spiritual purity of heart, a repentant heart free from the sin of blindness. False human Religion is anything but pure, it is the blind leading the blind over a cliff. If anyone looks for God within this realm they find a mixed-up version of who God is, filtered through man’s ideas of what God should be like mixed with what the bible says he is like. Religion of men is “Conflict in motion” churning out daily more and more confusion and misdirection at every turn. ALL man made faith of any kind is guilty of this, it cannot be helped for true faith is born out of the true God and cannot be birthed out of “good intents”. This is the worlds play ground not God’s so we cannot find him there, mixed with mortal ideas. We insult the purpose of God by trying to understand him in mortal terms when he is bigger than the universe itself.

What is “The Election of God?” series:

21 Truths about the Election of God Part 1


Before I begin with this teaching about this very important subject I would first like to discuss the issue of “TRUTH” vs. “DOGMATIC IDEAS” as the concept of one man’s ideas against another do not join to form a Truth, necessarily. Many “truthful ideas” put together end to end by men do not make a doctrine of godly origin. It is very important to any biblical doctrine plainly taught in scripture that we not consume its obvious teaching and then turn around and ADD our ideas or TAKE AWAY God’s intent from it and thus be equally consumed by the wrath of God or our stupidity.
Too often we look at each churches “DOGMAS” or statements of faith  and assume that the truth of God lies there in every churches belief. But upon closer review it is not possible for this to be true. TRUTH, Biblical based exact Truth is EXCLUSIVE TO GOD ALONE, as he dictated it through the prophets!
Man on the other hand is INCAPABLE without the Holy Spirit’s help of finding or telling the truth as God sees truth. Why is this? Because man’s heart the bible says is “wholly wicked and perverse”! And without God’s cleansing power working 24\7, 365 days a year that perverseness blinds us to what the truth really is. Remember that God requires “100% truth” not partial watered down truth in any form. The Holy Spirit MUST o.k. what the Church teaches and believes or of what value is it? Many things have been stated over the years about the Election of God, who’s saved and why but the Truth of God remains after all the talk has faded into eternity.


The first truth from scripture that we must learn and learn well is that God HAS ALWAYS BEEN AND WILL ALWAYS BE . “Eternity” is one of the most misunderstood and untaught biblical ideas of all time. When I say God has always been I DO NOT MEAN that God was at some point BORN out of nothingness in the distant past. GOD WAS before everything else WAS including time itself, he is the source of all physical matter the beginning of all forms of life ( Organic matter) and non-life ( Inorganic matter ) ! God is NOT “the Big Bang” he is the origin of the spark that began the Universe.
Eternity describes a state of being that has no beginning and no end outside of normal space-time. God is the source of Eternity and normal space-time!
There are many questions that man has about the nature of “time” and thus eternity itself like:

Time unfolds as a scroll before God who exists outside of Time!

1. We live in an expanding universe.

2. Mass radiates gravitons which interact with space.

3. Mass produces negative curvature in space.(General Relativity)

4 Time slows in negatively curved space. (General Relativity)

5. Time also slows in moving objects. (Special Relativity)

6. Forces cut in strength as part of slowing of time. (From the thought experiment)

The above concepts when combined with the following definition of time gives new insight into the laws of the universe:

Time is the presence of motion and forces and  caused by the expansion of space

1. Gravitons radiating from matter (under influence of expanding space) interact with space to slow its expansion.

2. Slower expansion produces negative curvature in space.

3. Motion is slower and forces are weaker where expansion of space is slower and this is perceived as slower time in gravity.

4. Total amount of motion and forces (i.e. Energy) imparted by expanding space to a mass is a constant (MC^2).
Therefore when the
velocity of an object is increased the motion at the atomic level reduces and forces weaken in proportion, which is the observed
slowing of time in moving bodies.
Is time an emergent concept?
Why does time slow down in gravity? “when an object is accelerated. To increase the velocity of an object we have to apply force. The force changes the way space acts on that object. The object interacts with space and the expansion of space slows in front of object
and becomes faster behind the object. As time is related to expansion of space this sets up a time differential with slower time in front of
the object and faster time behind perpetuating the motion. The objects moves in time differential from faster to slower time.”
Why does time slow down in motion ?
Because TIME around us IS PERCEIVED THROUGH our actions. We perceive when there is no motion time seems slows down in our perceptions.  The more preoccupied with life the faster time seems to go in our perception! God, being the origin of time cannot be limited by perceptions of time thus he can travel through time at will because he exists outside of time!
Why is this important to biblical teachings?
Because if we perceive God improperly from wrong beliefs then any biblical doctrine we attempt to teach will be perceived wrongly as well. Perception means “the act of perceiving or the ability to perceive; mental grasp of objects, qualities, etc. by means of the senses; awareness; comprehension, insight or intuition, or the faculty for these. It is the understanding, knowledge, etc. gotten by perceiving, or a specific idea, concept, impression, etc.
What we know about God directly affects how we believe everything in life and what direction our lives take, in relation to TRUTH. There is ONLY one Truth, and that is God; but once the concept of God is twisted by Satan into another form then any real Truth is altered from being an immovable anchor to being a mere concept in our minds. We then spend our lives finding ideas that match our versions of truth rather than being anchored to REAL TRUTH.
If it is not obvious by now where I’m going with this…here goes! Our problems start when we try to do with God what we do with Time…percieve him as “WE WILL him to be” instead of holding to what the bible says in black & white as a truthful perception of God himself. “Isn’t the concept of god a matter of individual perception?” No God cannot be looked at nor perceived as “what we want him to be in our limited finite minds as we do with our perceptions of time , he exists totally outside the concept of time.

The real Key to understanding all of Life is to Understand God first!

However, it is not God who is the “ever changing” concept here, he NEVER has and NEVER will change. It is our weak human perceptions of who God really is that keep changing with our lifestyle changes. In order to excuse our sins before a holy God we must “change who he is in our minds” so as not to feel guilty of our sin! To know the true and living God as the bible states is to be “Settled and Anchored” in our lives JUST AS GOD IS with himself! There is no way EVER to think wrong about anything in life if we become ONE with the creator of life. Instead we believe our “own press” about ourselves being the be all, end all in the universe of ideas…..FAR FROM IT!
“….many worship their consciences formed by their own earthly experiences. Their consciences are nothing more than an inner voice, a sort of a moral policeman that has taken up residence within. Can it be trusted? Do we trust ours? This is better than nothing, but conscience is easily perverted and often abnormally developed because it is almost entirely dependent upon upbringing and propaganda from this world’s media. Since this is Satan’s world, there is little chance that a person’s conscience will be entirely aligned with God’s standards…… Others superimpose on God their conceptions of a human father, but this, too, is woefully inadequate. What if one has no father as part of his life? What if his father was stupid, foolish, tyrannical, or over-indulgent? What kind of positive impression will that leave? Is God merely a grand old man, a head-patting, gray-headed, somewhat doddering person whose mind wanders back to better times, forgetful of what is occurring on the earth and in our lives?”

There will be much more in understanding Election as I go on in this teaching, and I am attempting to dispel common myths about salvation as I go so it may take some time to complete this series.

What are your Works worth? Are they going to hold water in the Judgement?

If you can't DO what you SAY, don't SAY what you'll DO!

When we turn on our T.V.’s and Radios or even read a Book, are we really beholding the unalterable truth? Are the facts we hear true facts or purposefully placed propaganda? Do we hear from Washington or the Churches the truth or are they stating a negative concept that cannot ever be proved to exist with the few facts revealed! Whenever the big picture is purposefully ignored then by extension we make the few facts put out there SEEM reasonable because they stand-alone without a firm foundation of truth!

Washington D.C and the Organized Churches answer to everything is the same old

Nothing from here comes from God: Politically or Spiritually!

“Circle the wagons” and put out the “usual suspects” as culprits! But the big question is this….when are we going to see these people as they really are, hypocrites of the worst kind!

The SAME is true of the religious church, they are ON PURPOSE doing things that God hates because they don’t care and really do hate everything that God loves in exchange for those simple earthly pleasures in this life…POWER and CONTROL! What they have not realized is that earthly power and control is so small in comparison to the riches of a heavenly eternal power base controlled by God.

When it comes to religion, are the scriptures we hear belted out over the airwaves in complete context or are we being duped into a false sense of spiritual protection? Are our leaders words really accepted by God or are they simply ordained fools tied to men? It is of the utmost importance that we all reevaluate where we stand both in our Politics and in our Faith, its high time that we use the freedom we have politically to VOTE out the lame brains and old useless men and women in Washington D.C. and in EVERY STATE that continues to propagandize our constitutional rights away! It is PAST time that the true Church use its freedom IN CHRIST to pray out the Chaff that has rooted within our ranks!

It is a tragedy of American politics and the Churches that so many of the officials are proven to be “hand in glove with the underworld of law-breakers” that they were voted in to deal with evil but instead make laws that make it easier for Evil to exist.

Are we as the people of God really according to Jude 1:20-21 “building up ourselves on our most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, Keeping ourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.” This and ONLY this is true biblical Christianity, anything less is false Religion.

Is your God a LIVING GOD or a stone hearted Idol?

Religion, in the simplest form includes a belief in the being and perfections of God, in the revelation of his will to man, and in man’s obligation to obey his commandments, in a state of reward and punishment, and in man’s accountableness to God; and also true godliness or piety of life, with the practice of all moral duties. If your life therefore does not include and comprehend Christian theology, as a system of moral doctrine or principles.

True Christianity MUST be lived outwardly and INTERNALLY as a personal practical piety done for the love of God ALONE and never as a fake outer show of religion. The practice of moral duties without a biblically based belief in a divine lawgiver, and without reference to his will or commands, is not Christianity at all. Every false religion including false Christianity has this same pattern of ANTI-BIBLICAL PRACTICE….to worship the creature rather than the Creator which they have changed into a more allowable god that lets them think and act as they feel fit rather than a God that requires a payment for their disobedience which means: Neglect or refusal to obey; a violation of a command or prohibition; the omission of that which is commanded to be done, or the doing of that which is forbid; breach of duty prescribed by authority. Anytime false Religion has an inroad into Christianity the same thing results, the taking away, the covering up, the twisting of the Truth of God to be replaced at key places with the same old ideas that have always failed. No matter if its politics and the socialist movement or Religion and the world of false beliefs masked in Christian words, the same result is forthcoming…..DEATH!

Rom 1:25  “Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.”

True Christian ideals are conformable to the facts of both science and to nature; being in accordance with the actual state of things and thus must be distinct from the theology that is only mental assent invented by and propagated by man. Real faith is godliness or real piety in practice not only words of intent. Consisting in the performance of all known duties to God and our fellow-men, in obedience to divine command, or from love to God and his law.

True Christianity is distinct from mere human virtue, or the natural inclination to morality that even Atheists portray daily. It exists as a fact only in the performance of the duties we owe directly to God, from a principle of obedience to his will from scripture. We must with great caution never indulge in the idea, that biblical morality can be maintained without real faith, for it would die on the vine of mans failed ideas. “Religion” in the simple definition is any system of faith and worship, so it does not in itself define TRUTH as many forms of “So-called Truth” exist but ONLY ONE is real truth that exists outside the realm of mans ideas.

Rom 1:28-32
“And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;  Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, spiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.”

Luke 16:15 says rightly “What is HIGHLY VALUED among men is DETESTABLE in God’s sight.” Remember that when the term “God’s Sight” is used it can just as easily be replaced by “God’s Vision within us”. When we are in obedience to his “Vision” for our lives, we are at the same time seeing the unsuitableness and extremely hateful; abominable things deserving our abhorrence, that God views everyday.

It is from this pile of garbage that the world deems valuable that most of “religion” derives its dogma not because it has to but because it chooses to of its own accord! No bad thing and not every good thing we have is usable in the work of God, this is why God bestows personal wisdom and spiritual discernment to better reveal his plans in our lives. In all this the Church has to realize that God does not look for powerful instruments but for instruments willing to be wielded by HIS POWER alone! Being busy working for the kingdom is not a Christian virtue because no matter how much “we” accomplish by being busy at work it only counts if that work is God’s work and not OURS!

WHAT IS THE WORK OF GOD?

The simple answer is found in John 6:28-29 (Amplified Bible)

“They then said, What are we to do, that we may [habitually] be working the works of God? [What are we to do to carry out what God requires?] Jesus replied, This is the work (The service) that God asks of you: that you believe in the One Whom He has sent [that you cleave to, trust, rely on, and have faith in His Messenger].”

Truth is very simple, believe and then receive..in no other way can God reveal or be revealed, so for the Atheist to say if I see it I’ll believe it is dishonest to the way God is revealed. Proof comes as belief comes and never before. This in no way says that the Proof is not in plain sight but rather it is seen as it really is by belief in the God who made it. When we view “The Creation” through the eyes of doubt and unbelief (Note: Skepticism is a healthy idea in the world otherwise we would fall for everything and gain nothing in life BUT doubt and disbelief go far beyond “natural skepticism” to the realm of “blind obedience” to self-made rules from personal experience rather than clear facts that lead to faith in God.

Where does your house stand…on the Rock or in the Sand?

Did you get that Mr. and Mrs. religious person? It’s NOT about how much we accomplish, it’s NOT about how many people we convince into believing our dogma, it’s never been about “The Us vs. THEM mentality of denominational-ism” BUT it is completely about “that which you cleave to, trust, rely on, and have faith in, like His Messenger” This and ONLY this is the Work of God, because no matter what else we waste our time pursuing it all comes back to TRUST not political or religious bluster! Once we all do this simple thing then every other thing we do is blessed. WHY? Because if God is in it, it automatically succeeds! If God is not in it, then it automatically fails!

We quote “Not by might nor by sight but by my Spirit says the Lord” like we mean it and all the while we do the opposite by relying upon every fleshly practice that we ask God to bless in prayer. We say bless my finances while we do all in our power to get money the wrong way to answer our problems instead of trusting God to give the increase. God throughout history has used “Little numbers ( Gideon’s 300 men), and little money ( Elijah’s widow and her one jar of oil ), and the little stones against David’s Giant trouble, all so-called insurmountable odds! What is to stop God from doing the same thing today for our needs?

A FALSE WORK WILL ALWAYS BRING DEATH TO BOTH THE AMERICAN DREAM AND THE CHURCHES VISION!

Proverbs 12:15
“The way of a fool is right IN HIS OWN SIGHT (Vision), but he who listens to council is wise.”

Proverbs 14:12
“There is a way which seems right to a man and appears straight to him, but at the end of it are the ways of death.”

We as the body of Christ must be very careful to work the works of God within the confines of the principles set forth in the bible not in our churches playbook written by men!Our understanding must grow beyond our pitiful political and religious playpen so that we can see that hypocrisy is deeper than celebrating a certain holiday or not celebrating it, it is doing anything that we do without the faith of God…..that’s the true hypocrisy in the church! Is it really too much to ask that Common sense be common to everyone who bears the name of Christ? The vision that God gave to his body is FAR MORE important than our small differences we expound on daily as if they were saving our souls.

The ten Commandments were not suggestions to follow but requirements for human survival. We do not have the right to pick and choose the ones we follow and certainly we cannot add more to God’s law than is required.

The Jews have a great saying:

“that no man is suspected of a thing but he has done it; and if he has not done the whole of it, he has done part of it, and if he has not done part of it, he has thought in his heart to do it, and if he has not thought in his heart to do it, “he has seen others do it, and has rejoiced”.”

Hypocrisy is the act of pretending to have beliefs, opinions, virtues, feelings, qualities, or standards that one does not actually have. Hypocrisy is thus the worst kind of lie and  comes from a desire to hide from others our actual motives or feelings.

The word hypocrisy comes from the Greek  (hypokrisis), which means “play-acting”, “acting out”, “coward” or “dissembling”. The word hypocrite is from the Greek word (hypokrites), the agentive noun associated with  (hypokrinomai), i.e. “I play a part.” Both derive from the verb  “judge” (“judgement”  (kritiki), “critics”) presumably because the performance of a dramatic text by an actor was to involve a degree of interpretation, or assessment, of that text.

The word is an amalgam of the Greek prefix hypo-, meaning “under”, and the verb “krinein”, meaning “to sift or decide”. Thus the original meaning implied a deficiency in the ability to sift or decide. This deficiency, as it pertains to one’s own beliefs and feelings, informs the word’s contemporary meaning.

Whereas hypokrisis applied to any sort of public performance (including the art of rhetoric), hypokrites was a technical term for a stage actor and was not considered an appropriate role for a public figure. In Athens in the 4th Century BC, for example, the great orator Demosthenes ridiculed his rival Aeschines, who had been a successful actor before taking up politics, as a hypokrites whose skill at impersonating characters on stage made him an untrustworthy politician. This negative view of the hypokrites, perhaps combined with the Roman disdain for actors, later shaded into the originally neutral hypokrisis. It is this later sense of hypokrisis as “play-acting,” i.e. the assumption of a counterfeit persona, that gives the modern word hypocrisy its negative connotation.

It is unfortunate that this “play acting” tends to define our lives from birth to the grave. We are duped into false beliefs early on and continue to fall prey to them throughout our lives from politics to religion. There is a measure of truth revealed to all men but so many refuse to profit by the light they have, and love the darkness they were born in rather than the light of the truth given to them. All who do not live up to the knowledge they possess, who do worse than they know, hold the truth in unrighteousness. They obstruct the truth, rather than let it have free scope.

Rom 1:32
“Not only do the same, but have pleasure in those that practise them” John Wesley comments on this verse: – “This is the highest degree of wickedness. A man may be hurried by his passions to do the thing he hates; but he that has pleasure in those that do evil, loves wickedness for wickedness’ sake. And hereby he encourages them in sin, and heaps the guilt of others upon his own head.”

These people become the “Enablers” for those who are sinning against nature and God by making the excuses and reasonings that prolong and blind us to our wrong doing. They are Jobs false friends who sound good to the fleshly ear, they give false peace and sooth the flesh until it feels better about the state its in INSTEAD OF COMING TO THE REALIZATION OF REPENTANCE!

THE TWO TREES in the garden THEIR BLESSING & CURSING

tree-of-life-s

Two Trees

Why we can’t solve our problems?

Eden means delightful, restful or idylillic. In this garden are two trees one is the “Tree of Life”, the other is the “Tree of Knowledge of good and evil”. Genesis 2:9 “And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.” Genesis 2:16-17 “And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.”

For man to make this choice, man had to have the ability to think andTheTreeofKnowledge-Website have free choice BUT THIS “FREE CHOICE” WAS ONLY TRULY FREE BEFORE THE FALL,AFTER THE FALL THERE WAS NO MORE “FREE” ONLY A CHOICE BECAUSE NOW CHOICES WERE DECIDED BETWEEN TWO SPIRITUAL FORCES: GOOD & EVIL. This is why God did not want man to “freely choose”sin because that was his last “FREE CHOICE” ALL CHOICES AFTER THAT ONE HAVE BEEN “ENSLAVED CHOICES” BOUND TO FLESHLY DESIRES & IMPURE THOUGHTS! It is the “TEMPTATION TO DO AS WE FEEL”THAT RULES US NOT THE “FREEDOM OF GOD’S RULE” WHICH ADAM & EVE HAD BEFORE THE FALL. Turn to Deuteronomy 30:19-20 “I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, [that] I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live: That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, [and] that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he [is] thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the LORD swore unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.” Receive “full abundant and rewarding LIFE”.

We live with choices we make, just look at Galatians 6:7 “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” In Genesis 3:1-5 Satan enters the scene, turn if you will and read: “Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which [is] in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.”

reliogionThe most “subtle” aspect of Satan’s argument eating the “fruit” would make one wise. Satan offered another way to gain knowledge. He knew this would cutoff man from God,(Just as his LAST “FREE CHOICE” CUT HIM OFF FROM FELLOWSHIP FROM HIS GOD.) he knew the end result would be no happiness and wisdom but “shame”. Turn to Genesis 3:7 “And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they [were] naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons( WORKS TO COVER FOR BAD CHOICES). 11 And he said, Who told thee that thou [wast] naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat ? And the LORD God said unto the woman, What [is] this [that] thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat ,and So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.” God revealed truth with The Tree of Life,THIS TREE embodied God’s Way. Instruction given – gift of eternal life; with this there will be peace, love, no sin, no death, no pain.WHAT GOD INTENDED TO HAPPEN WAS FOR ADAM & EVE TO EAT OF ETERNAL LIFE AND NEVER TOUCH THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD & EVIL FOR IN DOING THIS MAN & WOMAN WOULD HAVE LIVED FOREVER IN A PERFECT STATE OF PURE KNOWLEDGE OF THE THINGS OF GOD JUST AS GOD ENJOYS BEING HIS SONS & DAUGHTERS! This is the state that the New Heavens and Earth will be in,in the future state after the renovation of all things.YOU SEE GOD WANTED US TO KNOW GOOD FROM EVIL BUT NOT THE WAY IN WHICH ADAM CHOOSE IT,GOD WANTED US TO KNOW ABOUT IT FROM A “REVELATION” STANDPOINT NOT FROM AN EXPERIMENTAL EXPERIENCE! WE DO NOT NEED TO BECOME A PIG TO KNOW WHAT A PIG IS!

pd-tree-of-life-28x38-copper-365In Jude 1:7 it says “Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over (BAD CHOICES LEAD) to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.”THE Way of Cain IS greed, oppression, exploitation, rejection of God and His teachings, BUT the end result is eternal separation from “FREEDOM OF REAL CHOICE! before the fall IT was painless WITH NO difficulty,BUT THE Outcome of generations of “bad” decisions and deception trigger MORE BAD CHOICES TO BE MADE,THE LONGER WE LANGUISH IN SIN THE DEEPER WE SINK IN OUR BAD “CHOICES”.

Jesus prophesied His coming would be “as the Day of Noah”. Matthewm_b3994024fb5f8116a4f2bc864dc0e028 24:37-39 “But as the days of Noah [were], so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” Proverbs 16:25 “There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof [are] the ways of death.” There is a better way- God’s Way, Christ is that “Way”. Look up Revelation 22:14 “Blessed [are] they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.” Revelation 22:1-2 “And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, [was there] the tree of life, which bare twelve [manner of] fruits, [and] yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree [were] for the healing of the nations.” Christ will “restore”, H is our “free access” for all mankind.

Revelation 5:10 “And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.”

Isaiah 11:9 “They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.”

Other scripture to study on this are listed:

Acts 2:38, Proverbs 3:8, 11:30, 13:12, Revelation 2:7, Matthew 3:10, 17-19, Romans 8:11, Ezekiel 152, Proverbs 154

Jesus hung on a tree REPRESENTING THE “KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD & EVIL” OUR BAD CHOICES so HE COULD reclaim OUR LIVES,HIS BLOOD PURIFIED THAT TREES FRUIT AND RECLAIMED IT AS THE “Tree of Life” AND GAVE it back to us as a NEW CHOICE through His death. For us to partake of. Galatians 3:13 “Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed [is] every one that hangeth on a tree” It was the “knowledge of good & evil” that got us into trouble, NOW GOD HAS SOLVED THE PROBLEM IN HIS DEATH FOR BY STEPPING INTO HIS DEATH WE INHERIT HIS RESURRECTION LIFE INTO OUR FRAIL BODIES AND BEGIN THE PROCESS OF MENTAL RECONSTRUCTION (MIND RENEWAL).

Please note that the Bible says "Tree" NOT Crossbeams!

More than thirty different kinds of trees are named in the Bible: In addition to the majestic Cedars of Lebanon extolled in the Old Testament as building material for Solomon’s Temple, there are also the Olive Tree and Fig Tree emphasized in the New Testament.

Now it’s the Saints, the born-again believers (‘trees of righteousness’) who are building the spiritual temple!

Had Adam eaten of the Tree of Life, he would have lived forever (Gen. 3:22-24). It symbolized the Lord Jesus Christ who is our life, from whom we have eternal life. Christ is to all who believe a Tree of Life planted in the midst of the paradise of God (Prov. 3:18; Rev. 2:7; 22:102). To trust the Lord Jesus Christ, to live by faith upon the merits of his blood atonement and his perfect righteousness, is to eat of the Tree of Life. The fruit of this Tree, the results of Christ’s obedience to God as the sinner’s Substitute, is eternal life. All who eat of the fruit of this Tree shall live forever.

However, the Lord also placed another tree in the midst of the garden. It was “The Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.” The moment that Adam ate of the fruit of that tree, he died. He died spiritually,and was condemned to die eternally, and began to die physically. These things are recorded in the Book of God by the Holy Spirit for our learning and for our edification. There are several important, spiritual lessons to be learned by contrasting and comparing “The Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil” to the cursed tree upon which the Son of God was crucified. Read Acts 5:30 and 1 Peter 2:24.

SOME POINTS OF CONTRAST.

There are six obvious points of contrast between The Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil and the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ. There is as much to be learned from the disparity between the type and its fulfillment as there is from the comparison of the type and the anti-type.

1. The Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil was planted by God (Gen. 2:9); but the tree upon which Christ was crucified was made and set in its place by man (Matt. 27:33-35).

It is true – Christ was delivered to death by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God (Acts 2:23). God almighty fixed the time of his death, the means of his death, the place of his death, the object of his death, and the results of his death. But human hands devised and erected the cruel tree on Golgotha’s hill, stretched out the Lord of glory upon it, and crucified him. It is written, “And they crucified him!” The death of Christ was by the will, decree, purpose, and hand of God the Father; but the guilt of it lies entirely upon us. It was by the will, the hands, and the work of men that the incarnate God was nailed to the cursed tree.

2. The Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil was pleasant to the eyes (Gen. 3:6); but everything connected with the tree of the crucifixion was hideous, repugnant, and ignominious.

Though it would be idolatrous to do so, were it possible for an artist to capture the scene of our Lord’s crucifixion on canvas, no one would want the picture hanging in his home. The scene was horrible Our suffering Savior looked more like a violently slaughtered beast than a man (Isa. 52:14; Psa. 22:11-22). Drunks and priests, thieves and scribes, harlots and Pharisees, Roman soldiers and Jewish rabbis joined in a hellish party, taunting, and jeering, and laughing as they slaughtered the incarnate God. For three hours, darkness covered the face of the earth. The Son of God, when he was made to be sin for us, he was forsaken by his Father. Quivering in pain, burning with fever, covered with blood, with the reproach of being made sin for us breaking his heart, the Son of God died upon the cursed tree, being made a curse for us. Thus he redeemed his elect from the curse of the law.

3. God forbade man to eat of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil (Gen. 2:17); but every man is freely bidden, and even commanded, to eat of the fruit of that tree upon which the Savior died WHY? Because his blood was the pure blood of God which ETERNALLY PURIFIED THE VESSELS OF GOD.

True Christians CANNOT Worship the Cross It's ONLY a symbol!
True Christians CANNOT Worship the Cross It's ONLY a symbol!

Do not mistake my meaning….. There is no value, or merit, in that wooden cross upon which Christ died. We do not value the physical cross or Tree, at all. If I knew I had it in my possession, I would burn it and scatter the ashes to the wind for it would be nothing more than an IDOL. But there is infinite merit in the sacrifice him who died upon the cross. The fruits of our Savior’s death upon the tree are priceless. God himself calls sinners to eat of the fruit of this tree. He tells us, “All things are ready, Come.” “O taste and see that the Lord is good.” The leaves of this tree are for the healing of the nations, the healing of God’s elect scattered throughout all the nations of the world. It will be alright to use your imagination a little. Can you see the leaves on the tree? I see in the cross, in the sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ all that is needed for the healing of our souls from all the consequences of sin. In the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, we find atonement made, justice satisfied, righteousness brought in, forgiveness obtained, and eternal life secured for chosen sinners.

4. Satan used every cunning device to get man to eat of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil (Gen. 3:1-6); but he uses every cunning device imaginable to keep sinners from eating of the fruits of Christ’s death upon the tree of crucifixion.THROUGH VAIN DECEIT AND FALSE WORSHIP OF IDOL GODS,BY DENYING THE VERY DEATH OF CHRIST UPON THE CROSS ITSELF (ISLAM) AND BY MAKING CHRIST A MERE MORTAL WITH NO SAVING POWER AT ALL,BUT REALIZE THAT NO MAN CAN CHANGE WHAT GOD HAS DONE BY “DENIAL” HELL WILL HOTTER FOR THOSE WHO DENY WHAT THEY PLAINLY SEE!

The liar from hell deceives sinners, who are all willing to be deceived, by flattering their flesh. He persuades men and women universally that they do not need a substitute, that they are really good enough to meet with God’s approval, that God would not really send them to hell.(OH! BUT HE WILL) With cunning craftiness, he makes men and women think they are smart, too smart to believe God, so smart that they imagine all of what God says to be superstition and hypocrisy, because they are superstitious hypocrites themselves-RELIGION IS ALL THESE THINGS AND MORE BUT WE WOULD RATHER BELIEVE IT THAN GOD’S WORD!

5. The eating of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil brought death to Adam and Eve (Gen. 2:17); but life comes to all who eat the flesh and drink the blood of him who died upon the cursed tree (John 6:53-56). Now don’t get your “FLESH UP” THIS IS NOT CANNIBALISM, BUT IT IS LITERAL SPIRITUAL TRUTH!

Christ’s flesh, his obedience to God in the body of human flesh, is righteousness. His blood, the pouring out of his life’s blood unto death, is atonement (AT-ONE-MENT ). To eat his flesh and drink his blood is to receive him by faith, thus receiving his righteousness and his atonement.

6. Adam, as a thief ( BECAUSE HE STOLE THIS KNOWLEDGE WITHOUT EARNING THE RIGHT TO IT BY GOING THOUGH GOD’S WILL OF ETERNAL LIFE), by eating of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, was cast out of Paradise (Gen. 3:24); but the penitent thief, by eating of the fruit of the tree of crucifixion, entered Paradise (Lk. 23:39-43).

The only time recorded in the Scriptures our Savior used the word “Paradise” during his earthly ministry was in his promise to the penitent thief. It was not accidental. Like the penitent thief, all believers are reconciled to God and shall be brought into eternal Paradise, by believing on the Lord Jesus Christ. As he confessed his sin and just condemnation, so do we. As he acknowledged Christ as his Lord, so do we. As he trusted the mercy and grace of Christ the Lord, so do we. As he obtained the favor of the Lord by faith in him, so do we. As he is with Christ in Paradise, so we soon shall be.

SOME MARKS OF SIMILARITY.

I have shown you the points of contrast between the tree in the garden and the cross of Christ. Now, let me show you some of the marks of similarity between these two trees.

1. Both trees were planted in a garden (John 19:41). The first Adam died in a garden; and the last Adam died in a garden.

2. Both trees were planted in the midst of the garden (Gen. 2:9; John 19:18).

Our Lord Jesus Christ died as our Substitute in the midst of the world, and in the midst of two thieves, dividing the one from the other. So it is the TREE of Christ, his blood atonement, that divides all men. The blood of Christ alone is that which distinguishes God’s elect from the reprobate. And our Lord Jesus was crucified in the midst of time. His death was the crisis of the world. When the fullness of the Jews was finished, as the fullness of the Gentiles began, the Son of God died at Calvary to ransom the Israel of God. This day and forever, it is the cross of Christ, which is the Tree of Life planted in the midst of the heavenly paradise (Rev. 22:2), as the center and glory of all things.

3. Both trees were trees of the knowledge of good and evil.

There is only one place in all the world where sinners, such as we can learn the knowledge of good and evil. These things are learned by divine revelation at the cross. There, as we look to Christ in faith, we see the goodness of God and the holiness of God, the love of God and the wrath of God, the grace of God and the justice of God, the mercy of God and the truth of God. And it is only as we look to Christ in faith, trusting him as our crucified Savior, that we begin to see the evil of sin, the wickedness of man, and the utter depravity of our own hearts. It is looking on him whom we have pierced that melts our hearts to repentance (Zech. 12:10). And it is only in the light of Christ crucified that we discern good from evil in providence. For God’s elect all things are good. For the unbeliever, all things are evil (Pro. 12:21; Isa. 3:10-11).

4. Both trees are good for food (Gen. 3:6).

The cross of Christ – I mean the doctrine of the cross, the Gospel, is the very meat and marrow of the believer’s life. It is good for food for our souls! How pleasant it is to the eyes of faith! In the crucified Christ, in the doctrine of the cross, we see our sins blotted out. We see how that God is, indeed, both perfectly just and the Justifier of every believer. Truly, this is “a tree to be desired to make one wise!” The preaching of the cross is the power of God and the wisdom of God. It makes the believing sinner wise unto salvation.

The cross of Christ was to our dear Savior a cursed tree (Gal. 3:13), but to us a tree of blessing, a curse removed. As Abraham’s guest was urged to take water and refreshment and find rest “under the tree” (Gen. 18:4), so in the gospel weary sinners are bidden of God to take water and refreshment and find rest for their souls under the cross. As Abraham and his guest stood together “under the tree” (Gen. 18:8), so the triune God and believing sinners stand together in the cross of Christ. As the tree cast into Marah’s bitter waters made the waters sweet (Ex. 15:23-25), so the cross of Christ cast into our bitter lives makes them sweet. With the inspired apostle, every believer ought to make this firm resolve – “God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ!” BUT REMEMBER WITHOUT THE “EMPTY TOMB” THE CROSS WOULD MEAN NOTHING,THEREFORE THE EMPTY TOMB IS THE TRUE SYMBOL OF THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH FOR THE CROSSES WORK IS REALIZED IN THE EMPTY TOMB!
