Salvation and faith in Jesus Christ is a necessary first step towards regaining our rightful place in the family of God. We've been endowed with a life giving spirit and the right to fellowship with the Lord God. So it was in the beginning with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. They were blessed with a close relationship to God and given a stewardship in the creation on earth. This was a glorious time as the angels witnessed God's wonderful creation.
Adam and Eve were asked to keep one reverence to the Lord. And the Lord God commanded the man, "You are free to eat of any tree in the garden; but you must not eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat of it you will surely die" (Genesis 2:16-17). Consequently, Adam and Eve were to leave the Garden of Eden in mere humanity as a result of their disobedience.
In the wisdom and grace of God, mankind is given a second opportunity to return to our original estate (the hope of glory). This plan, given in the fullness of time, is the redemption and salvation in Jesus Christ. He's taken upon himself the disobedience and sin of Adam and Eve and has brought new life to us by His sacrifice at Calvary (whereby justice and mercy was served on the cross). This is a true testimony of God's love in that he gave his only begotten son for everyone who'd believe the gospel.
The purpose of providing this blog was to share upbeat news while watching the state of affairs in our communities. As Elisha the prophet said: "Where is the Lord, the God of Elijah?" And yet today, there is hardly any evidence of a victorious church and prayer meetings with people weeping for lost souls. Our modern society has rejected the gospel as a nice story that our grandparents once shared and replaced it with the school of superficial thought. A clever plot unfolding since the Garden of Eden ... on how to decrease the act of repentance by convincing people that nothing is out of the ordinary. So once again, where is the compassion for souls.
Salvation is given freely to everyone who'd believe in Jesus Christ. The statement of faith by your prayer for salvation and confession of sin will open the way in the grace of God. This will give you a joy in the spirit known as the born-again experience.
