Whoever You Are

Morning Glory...


God so loved the world that He gave His only Begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him, will not perish, but will have and experience everlasting life.  (John 3:16)

God SO loved the world.
This word "world" is from the Hebrew word...KOSMOS
It implies all that was created, i.e., inhabitants, vegetation, animals, and everything that dwells upon the earth, above the earth, and beneath the earth.

When Adam and Eve sinned, death entered the "kosmos", and all living things came under the curse of death through sin.  This was not the plan of God.  Do not let anyone tell you that God allowed this.  What God allowed was the free will of Adam and Eve to function.

In exercising that free will, their choices went against God.  They willingly placed themselves under the influence of a fallen angel, Satan, and gave up their divine destiny to rule.  As the father and mother of all humanity, everyone born after this rebellion inherited their fallen state...sinner by nature.

But...God SO loved...
Ephesians, chapter one, speaks of the Love Plan of God to redeem the world through His Son Jesus Christ.  He sent a Man to undo what a man undid.  God SENT His Son.  The Son carried that Love Plan of God to the world.  He did it IN PERSON.

This plan was formulated before the foundation of the world (Ephesians 1:4).  Where were you?  Not even a thought in anybody's heart but God's.  Should you be born...God had a plan.  You weren't predestinated to be born, but because the Law of Genesis says that every living creature was to bring forth their "kind" (Genesis 1:21), then humankind was to bring forth humans, of which you and I are of that kind.

God planned that WHOEVER was born on this earth after the humongous failure of our early parents...would have another opportunity to be restored to Him.  Why?  Because you and I were stolen by the lies of a fallen angel.  Jesus, God in flesh, came to this earth to get us back....whoever you are!!!

Ephesians 1:5 reveals how God PLANNED IN LOVE to adopt us, reveal us as His children, through Jesus Christ, because it pleased Him and was His kind intent.  He then influenced men by the Holy Spirit to write this plan in a book...The that whatever time of life a person was born, if they could get ahold of this anointed Word...they could know the Love Plan of God.  He left no one out...NO ONE!

Don't believe me?  Well, I found the Plan.  Someone loved God enough to read His Book, get it into their heart, and search for me.  I was found.  You can be found, too.  God is just waiting for you to want to know Him.  He is ready for you.  He has done all that He can do to get  Truth to you.  Somehow, you are just going to have to get more curious than you are now, and He will show YOU...yes, YOU...the great Love that He loves you with.

If you have been born in this kosmos...God's Love Plan is prepared for you!

Loving Him and you,
