Hello World….One Rule

“Beloved, Jesus came a long way from heaven for you. You certainly matter to Him. He came to give you life and life more abundantly. (John 10:10) You are not just a face in a crowd or a number. No, He knows you by name and has a personal love for you. And in spite of the mess which you might be in, He wants to meet your every need and make your life beautiful!”  said  Joseph Prince.

And I agree.   Jesus came a long way just to tell you the mystery of the kingdom of heaven.  So many people want to get into a debate about  that, but you know what?  IT DOES NOT MATTER what you say, He did it and is about to do it again.   I mean, He is coming back and when He does, He won’t be a baby lying in a manger, He will be the King of kings and Lord of lords.  He will set up His kingdom here on earth and rule with a rod of iron.  

When God made man and woman on this earth, He had communion with them every day until the day they hid from Him and He had to ask, “Where are you?”  He knew where they were and He asked to see if they knew where they were.  Before they hid from Him, He walked every day with them. He talked to them, He communed with them in an intimate way.  Personal love for the two He created to be His family.  I am sure that this was His greatest delight to walk and talk with His family in the garden He had made perfect for them.

He only set down one rule.  ONE RULE.  They had to obey only one rule.  Does this not prove His love for them?  They had choice just like we have choice today.  They were walking in a perfect garden, with perfect water, with perfect harmony, with a perfect Father who loved them without condition.  Even when they broke the ONE RULE, He still loved them. He made provision for them and He called out to them   to come out of hiding back to the light.  He brought them back into His presence so He could correct them from the error they had just made.  He taught them that because of their error in judgment they would now have to toil to make a living for themselves.  He would no longer provide at will for them.  Their disobedience brought judgment and they would have to pay for that along with the rest of us until the Son came and died for the sin they committed to make a Way back home.  Faith, believing, opens the door to blood that cleansing from sin.  When you fail at doing what is right, you always want to run and hide.  But God wants you to be free from sin. He provided the blood covering for Adam and Eve and He provides the blood covering for us.

Animals were killed and their skin used for clothes then.  Jesus death, burial and resurrection provides the blood covering for us today.  

And there is still ONE RULE>    OBEY.
