In the beginning God made all things and they were beautiful, in His orderly way the Almighty made first out of the darkness, light and he called the light day and the darkness; He called night, DAY ONE.
Next He called forth a firmament and declared that it should divide the waters above from the waters below and this firmament was called Heaven, DAY TWO.
God said let the waters under the Heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear. The Earth and the seas were called forth, also were the grass and fruit trees, DAY THREE.
Next He made the moon, the sun, the stars, He made the lights to be as a sign for the seasons, for days and years, DAY FOUR
The waters were commanded to bring forth Fish of all sizes, whales, sea creatures, winged fowls of the air and they were told to multiply in the Earth, this was DAY FIVE.
Next made He all sorts of land animals that creep upon the face of the Earth, cattle, beast and all, God said Let us make man in our image, after our likeness and LET THEM HAVE DOMINION OVER THE FISH OF THE SEA OVER THE FOWL OF THE AIR AND ALL CATTLE AND OVER ALL THE EARTH-----
Chapter two of the book of Genesis tells us that God ended all His work of creation and finally rested from creating; He then blessed the day of rest.
It is amazing to know that the almighty went to such order and detail to call the earth into being for His very own purpose to make the Earth comfortable, and an example to us that we can do as he did and can truly be like Him if only we live according to His purpose and will
Jesus said (John 14:12-15, 15:7) we shall do works like him and are even capable of doing greater works.
Why then is man always erring and acting as if God is not capable of handling his affairs or that he even knows far more than the creator of heaven and earth!
The scientist, evolutionists and other intellectuals who feel nothing or no one can be wiser or more intelligent than them.
Why is it that from the time of Adam, man, has always grieved the Almighty in his actions and sometimes inactions?
Genesis 2:16-17, And the Lord 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 thou eatest thereof, thou shall surely die.
Adam was given a specific instruction that he did not think twice about disregarding when the opportunity arose and it seems through the ages, man has continued to be so in nature and character.
When Moses went up the mountain to get the ten commandments from God before he returned, his people who had SEEN and EXPERIENCED raw manifestation of God’s power and might FROM THE DELIVERANCE FROM Egypt to the parting of the red sea as a passageway of escape for them, through the wilderness experience still sorth another to fulfil their desires and low moments
In Noah’s time it grieved God to see such and he decided to wipe out all life except of course Noah, his wife, His three sons (Shem, Ham and Japheth), and their wives.
Despite the fact that Abraham knew God and had a promise, he and Sarah decided to help God by having a child (before it was too late?) through Hagar, Sarah’s handmaid who later bore Ishmael and that household never remained the same till this day.
Today the story has not changed we still, grumble, complain and always ask for more and more and more
We never remember to give thanks for so many things that God is always doing in our lives or through us in others´ lives.
There is the story of the man who always complained at every given opportunity of not having shoes to wear but the day he saw the man whose feet were totally eaten up by leprosy, he stopped complaining and started giving thanks!
Adam even put the blame on God for the way Eve made him go against God’s command by insinuating that he did not ask for a woman, it was as if he was saying the Almighty did not ask his opinion before giving Eve to him!!!!
When are we going to start standing up for what we believe in?
When are we going to start obeying Him without compromise and fear of the opinions of men?
Stephen was stoned to death but he did not renounce Jesus
When are we going to start appreciating Him for who He is?
When are we going to go full length like Apostle Paul and others who disregarded the world and embraced Him totally despite the flesh warring with their spirit man, they refused to succumb but always asked for help from the lord till the end.
ARE YOU WILLING?
LET US PRAY NOW FOR STRENGTH IN RIGTHEOUSNESS, HOLINESS AND SPREADING THE GOOD NEWS LIKE WILD FIRE
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
