Genesis 1:1a – “In the beginning God…” NKJV
Revelation 21:22-22:5 – “But I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. 23 The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light. 24 And the nations of those who are saved shall walk in its light, and the kings of the earth bring their glory and honor into it. 25 Its gates shall not be shut at all by day(there shall be no night there). 26 And they shall bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it. 27 But there shall by no means enter it anything that defiles, or causes an abomination or a lie, but only those who are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.
22:1- “And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb. 2 In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. 3 And there shall be no more curse, but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall serve Him. 4 They shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads. 5 There shall be no night there: They need no lamp nor light of the sun, for the Lord God gives them light. And they shall reign forever and ever.” NKJV
Man has been trying throughout the ages to understand, physically find, and fully explain or explain away God. Multitudes of religions, cults, and sects have arisen for that purpose. False religions are more numerous today than in any age known to man and more accepted as being valid than ever.
This all began with God – Jehovah God, The One True God the Creator of Heaven and Earth. It will end with God – Jehovah God, The One True God the Creator of Heaven and Earth. You can try all the explanations and theories you desire but the biblical account is true, I’m satisfied with that because I’ve experienced God in my life and that transformation cannot be explained through natural means or even science it was “supernatural”! God took a reprobate and completely transformed my mind-set, character, and nature. God took a person who was filled with bitterness and replaced it with His bountiful Grace and Mercy allowing me to “love again” and “cry again.” The miraculous things He has done in my life are too numerous to try to mention here but suffice it to say – I HAVE NO QUESTIONS ABOUT THE REALITY OF GOD!
I know, as the patriarchs of old, that “I’m a stranger and pilgrim here. I’m just passing through.” I’m a citizen of the United States of America, a Texan and proud of it but more importantly my true citizenship is The Kingdom of God. I have been transferred from the kingdom of darkness into the Kingdom of God’s Marvelous Light. I’ve been transformed from one “Lost” to one “Redeemed.” Like Paul, I have not arrived but I’m pressing toward the mark of the high calling of Jesus Christ.
The one thing I know is that it all began with God and it will all end with God and those of us that are His will come through whatever the devil hurls at us directly or through the agency of man or government! The end of the Book says – WE WIN! That’s good enough for me and therefore I fear not what man can do to me for I know in whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I have committed to Him against that day!
May God give you peace and bless you as you go through your day!
