We're All Sinners
Friend, even when we think in our own hearts that we are not sinful, God sees to the utmost into our heart, mind, and every action we have taken. He says we are "all sinners; not one of us is Good."
God is Holy and He measures our goodness by His Goodness.
He is Pure and He is Good. Everything He does is for his Good Purposes.
Our good falls short of Goodness.
To us, it may not seem that way, but ultimately, it is God Who decides and we must have faith in Him and His Decisions.
He is the Creator of the Whole of Everything that is.
He is Awesomely Creative to the minutest of details.
Do you ever think about our bodies and how He has created us; the things in nature; the animals, the plants and trees how they grow, each one different even within it's own species; Gems, rocks, minerals, seasons, gestation and birth. It's all so wonderful and magnificient. The worlds beyond our solar system that we are just at the beginning of discovering are so vast, intricately formed, unique and unending.
God recognizes every thing He has created because it is minutely different in some way; identifiable to Him. The Bible says He has numbered the hair on our heads!
Matthew 10:29-31 (Jesus speaking)
He sees every leaf that falls! He has set the rivers under the earth to spring forth where we see them and do not wonder why.
But, with God, everything has a Purpose.
He is a Purposeful God!
We cannot see as He sees. He doesn't want us to. He just wants us to know Him and trust Him.
Will we ever catch up with Him Who Is continually creating?
Yet, we who He has given Free Will, a Gift from His Holy Hand, have taken that Gift and abused it.
We deny Him for starters.
We deny He is the Creator!
We say we want to believe in evolution and go out of our way to prove that evolution is how things have been started and are evolving.
How could God even laugh at that!
It must be extremely sad for Him to see us wallow around in disbelief when He has His hand stretched out to us; asking us to open our minds and hearts to His Existence and Excellence; showing how much He loves us by giving His Son as a Sacrifice for our sin of not loving Him!
But what we see as evolution is a small part of the whole process of God's Creative Plans for His Existence. Everything is moving forward in God's Timeplan, yet on earth there is decay because of sin entering and causing a rent in the tapestry God has woven, for mankind and this earth.
We make a lot of suppositions but God knows the Truth.
According to His Law, He dealt with satan and the fallen angels; and we are living today in a timeframe of banishment from Heaven, the first part of the punishment and probation of satan and his followers.
We play a small part in that, and think we are at the center of it all!
But the one who has deluded us, and continues to deceive us daily is the nemesis of God; satan the covering cherub who was placed in a high position in God's inner circle; only to fall from Grace by using his power to persuade other's in God's army of angels to be disobedient.
Satan works day and night to keep things covered up from us and exposes only that which will prove his point to us.
God judged them and removed them from Heaven, but the Punishment is still to come.
All Creation shall be at the Judgement. We will see that God has done no wrong even though millions and millions will line up to accuse Him.
His Plan is Perfect and no fault will be His.
When we think about how, why, where from, all the things of earth, including ourselves, with a truly open and questioning (for Truth) mind; we will hear from our Saviour.
He delights in revealing Truths to us. He wants to show how much He loves us.
This earth was made by God, and God put "His little toy soldier" on the earth that He had creatively designed; an earth that would sustain him in every way.
All thought was given to the well being of Adam the first man, the "little toy soldier" that lived and breathed and had his own Free Will Gift to make his way on earth amongst the animals, seasons, rivers, oceans, mountains and sky with the Spirit of God filling his soul.
Adam and God had beautiful one on one communication in the Garden of Eden and his every need was met. Eventually God made a full time companion for Adam and he a companion for her; Eve.
God saw that this was good.
But evil enticed and won over the original inhabitants of earth and now we, the descendants, have inherited evil; but it can be removed from us, if we make the choice to repent.
Friend, we must acknowledge to God that we fall short of His Goodness.
Let's not lie to ourselves, or God. We are just trying to avoid Him; we want to go our own way. But God sees that our way; the roads we have chosen are leading us to eternal destruction and He does not want us to perish.
We must repent.
God asks us to put our faith in Him and not the things of the world.
It's not as difficult as we first imagine, and it is very healing to the soul to do so; to acquiese to God's Goodness; to say "Yes" to God.
The heart must have a desire to ask for Forgiveness from God and the brain will surrender.
He will forgive a repentant heart.
A Forgiven sinner He loves, heals, helps, provides for, guides.
He is The Good Shepherd.
