Many people pick up a Bible and are intimidated by the number of pages and never begin to read the Greatest Story Ever Told. Instead they listen to bits and pieces presented by Priests and Rabbi’s. The Priests tell you that the book needs interpretation. The Rabbis proclaim the words of other Rabbis while ignoring the Simple and Plain Words of GOD.
GOD, the TRUE GOD, wrote the Bible as a Love Letter to you personally. HE wrote it so a Child could understand it. The entire Book from Start (Book of Genesis) to its End (Book of Revelation) proclaims the GOSPEL of the SON of GOD. It is Hidden in the Old Testament and Revealed in the New Testament.
I am but dust, yet I felt the need to simplify for you the essence of the THE STORY into 4 points. My prayer is that you will begin to hunger for Scripture; because the Book at its foundation is about YOU.
JESUS didn’t come for Himself….HE CAME BECAUSE OF YOU!
These four points contain depths of knowledge beyond our comprehension. For who among those He has created can say they understand Him or even begin to know HIM.
Point One: God had a vision to create an ultimate Holy and Eternal World where God and man would co-exist. This vision became reality when God said, “Let there be Light….” And so there was a place where God and man could walk together in a garden, in the cool of the day.
Point Two: Sin entered into this pristine world, twisting the relationship between God and man. This disease born on the dark wings of a fallen angel named lucifer spread to every man and woman made in the image of God for all time.
Point Three: Two worlds now exist side by side; two dimensions occupying the same space but not the same time. God in one and man in the other. But God promised to send His Son to redeem mankind and the world he lived in and re-unite both planes of existence…into ONE.
And so the God / Man was born into the world to die for the world and make it ONE again.
Point Four: In the beginning everything was made new. Then for a time everything new became old and life became a cycle of continuing birth and death. But God who spoke forth the physical creation, known as the Earth and the Universe will in the same way speak forth and Un-create this physical universe that He made.
With its Un-creation everything evil will be destroyed by fire.
Then God will speak forth and create a new earth and heavens where God and His Image Bearers again will walk together as family, forever.
The anchor of this Plan, it’s pre-written Story, its History wrought in time and its Glorious Future all stand immovable on the Cornerstone whose architect is God HIMSELF, the God/Man, Gods Only SON JESUS.
