Galatians 1. 3-5, The opening Words of The Bible state: “In the beginning God...” Before God what was there – chaos and disorder. In the beginning there was only God.
Psalm 90. 2: “Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever You had formed the earth and the world, Even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God.”
But is all of this true? The world says NO. What do you say? I believe that it is the absolute truth – every Word. I also believe that it has not changed since it was written – that it is the inspired Word of a living God. It is a unique book in that it was written over a 1500 year span – by 40+ authors who listened to God. Men from different walks of life: kings, statesmen, peasants, philosophers, fishermen, poets, scholars to name a few. Written from many locations: the wilderness, from a dungeon, from a palace, in a prison cell – chained to guards, while in exile. Perhaps the hardest thing to grasp is that it is God’s own words.
Why have I shared this information today, because the world refuses to believe and even seeks to destroy and obliterate The Bible. Listen to Hebrews 1. 1-3 “God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, 2 has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds; 3 who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high..."
God speaks today – but the world is too arrogant to hear. Revelation 3. 6 tells us pointedly that God is speaking to us: “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”
Are we listening or are we caught up in worldliness and pleasure? What will The Lord find when He returns – what was around before God created or will He find His people seeking Him with their hearts? I pray that it is the latter. He will come – Are you ready? If you have questions – please contact me. God is from ‘everlasting to everlasting’ – from before there was time until there is no time. AND He has chosen you to be part of His family.
