To mankind GOD has given His image. He has made us a little higher than the angels. However at this time in our imperfect state before Him, God refers to us as “but dust”. Let’s go back in time for a moment to when God made Adam the first man. God reached down into the earth and gathered a handful of dust from which He would create the first man. God is omniscient meaning He knows the future. He knew that there would be a day coming when He would have to sacrifice His only begotten Son on a Cross to bring salvation to the race of man.
So when God gathered the dust to form the first man, it was His tears that wet the dust to turn it into clay as God molded Adam into His Image. These were the first of the many tears of God because He knew what the cost was going to be to His beloved Son on the Cross. He knew that He would have to turn away from the cries of His Son on the Cross-when Jesus roared “My God, My God…Why have you forsaken me?”
Yet God made Adam anyway from the dust mixed with His Tears. Then as Adam awoke a new creation…the first man…Adam stood and stretched his arms out as all of us do when we awake.
And the light that reflected from God upon the first man created the shadow of the CROSS behind the man. God’s eyes looked upon the dust that Adam was made of …and tears filled the eyes of God again.
The Shadow of Mans Cross would be there every morning in this land filled with both light and shadows till the end of mankind’s days. If only every person made in the image of God could come to know JESUS during their journey in life so the weight and burden of the beam could be lifted and carried by their Savior.
But every person cannot come to Christ, because God has chosen and elected the few and not the many. And God did that to bring Glory to HIS Name. But what of free will you say…God said He gave you free will, and He did. He gave you, in your fallen state the ability to choose your sins. But you do not have the ability to choose God as your savior. That choice resides alone with God through the Power of the HOLY SPIRIT.
The question you face is whether or not you are one of the Chosen. The Bible speaks always of a Remnant (the few) whom God chose from eternity past from among the nations of the earth to ultimately be a love gift to His Son.
Are you one of the Chosen? Do you have Royal blood running through your veins? It’s been said that running throughout time is a Crimson Thread representing the Bloodline of the Messiah. Throughout history this bloodline and its attempted corruption has been the main focus of the angel of light who has become the King of Darkness, the god of this world, satan.
Satan is a believer in Jesus. So much so that he has spent all his energy throughout time to stop the plan of Salvation as described in the Bible, the Word of God. And so the battlefield continues to be filled with blood and the war rages on both in the realm of humans and the realm of angels. When God formed us from the dust using HIS tears to make the clay, it did not complete us.
Each of us was born alive physically but our Spirit within us was born dead. We each need to find a personal relationship with JESUS. Only in this way can we gain the assurance of our Salvation and become Born Again by having our Heart Circumcised and our Spirit Quickened and brought to life within us.
The only place this journey to Salvation can begin is within the pages of the book that God Himself wrote for you to read about Himself. His Words, the Words of God will grow within your heart and mind and kindle the flame within your Spirit.
This flame ultimately will consume you so that every thought you have about every circumstance in your life, and the world around you will be measured against the Word of God.
Then you will gain a new perspective about life here. You will realize you don’t belong here at all. Heaven will become precious to you like never before. And most of all you will become more like Christ every day and your heart will become burdened for the lost. Your compassion will give you new eyes to see through every day as you continue to meet those I call the real walking dead…because they have no spiritual life.
You need wisdom and discernment to rely on the words of men who write books about the word of God. But if you read God’s Word out of His Holy Bible you will receive wisdom and discernment from the author of everything, including an understanding of the future.
