We are just about one month into the “New Year,” and so much has occurred in a short period. There was an insurrection at the Capitol, the 47th President of the United States’ Inauguration, and a change in administration. Many are rejoicing at the shift in the administration and are hoping for a better tomorrow. I’ll admit it’s encouraging to see a woman of color as Vice President of the United States. While all of this is seemingly good, we cannot lose sight of what is vital.
I’m not here to rain on the proverbial parade, nor am I a Trump proponent. The only person I’m endorsing is God. I’m not overly concerned with who’s in the White House but rather who’s on the throne. As many are screaming that they want things to return to normal, I think that ship has sailed. Stop spreading doom and gloom, you say. I promise you this is no doom and gloom message-there is hope!!
It’s time to ensure that you have an authentic organic relationship with the Father. If you’re distracted, it’s time to get focused! Time is of the essence. More importantly, if you don’t know Christ, this is the optimal time to change that. You don’t want to die in your sins and live eternally separated from Christ. Every person born on this earth is born in sin-yes, even the cutest, cuddliest baby. Many people are familiar with the account of Adam and Eve. God created man in His image and likeness and had given man ONE commandment which was not to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. They had permission to eat from the other trees, just not that one! The enemy (in the form of a serpent) approached Eve and began to speak to her things contrary to what God commanded, thus causing her to question God. The enemy’s tricks and tactics are still the same today. He causes us to doubt what God has told us! After Adam and Eve ate from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, their eyes were open to both good and evil. God previously warned them that if they ate from the tree, they would die. Adam and Eve didn’t immediately drop dead once they ate the fruit. I’m sure they were surprised, they died spiritually (separation from God), which ultimately led to their physical death. God did not prohibit them from eating from the tree because He was holding anything back from them. It was a form of protection. The Father protects us in the same fashion today! But back to the narrative. Adam and Eve’s eyes were opened, and they realized that they were naked before God. This act of disobedience got them booted from the garden, and each day they were one step closer to death.
In God’s original plan, man was to live forever; however, when Adam and Eve sinned, they could no longer live forever in that state. While the Father was disappointed, He still covered Adam and Eve with animal skins, and until the day that Jesus died on the cross, He required the blood of an animal to cover our sins temporarily. Every person born after would be subject to corruption and in need of a savior. The Good news is that God, in His infinite wisdom, had a plan of redemption. He sent His only begotten Son to be the sacrifice for humanity. Romans 5:17 (AMP) “For if by the trespass of the one (Adam), death reigned through the one (Adam), much more surely will those who receive the abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness reign in [eternal] life through the One, Jesus Christ. Jesus died on the cross for both you and me to reconcile us back to the Father, which was the original plan. I get so excited to share this news with you! God has a plan for every person on this earth! He offers the gift of salvation to both you and me. If you’re anything like me- I love gifts. Accept this gift today, don’t put it off another day. If we learned anything in 2020, it’s the adage “life is short’. Since we aren’t privy to the day or the time, we’re going to leave this earth, I implore you to get right with God. How can I get right with God?? I’m glad you asked. First, you must believe that Jesus came to this earth (there’s evidence of this truth) that He was ridiculed, beat, and ultimately hung on a cross for you and me, died, and rose from the dead in ALL POWER. Confess with your mouth that you believe that He died for your sins, and you’ll be saved from the wrath to come. Yes, it’s that simple- So what are you waiting for. He’s calling you today. He wants to relate to you. It’s the most crucial decision that you’ll ever make in your life.

Father, it’s in the name of Jesus that we come to you. Father, thank you for the words that you’ve placed in my heart. Thank you to every person that’ll read this blog let you touch them. I pray that those who may not know you come into the knowledge of the truth. I pray that the blindness is removed from their mind so that they could receive the light of the gospel and be saved. I thank you that you came for the lost, and I thank you for finding me. I pray for those believers who are distracted. I pray that every distraction is removed and that they return to their first love. Father, we thank you for salvation, protection, healing, and for the opportunity to have a relationship with you. Thank you for being alive and not a statue or some inanimate object. Thank you for being the Alpha and Omega, beginning and the end, the one who is (existing forever) and who was (continually existing in the past) and who is to come, the Almighty [the Omnipotent, the Ruler of all] in Jesus name, Amen
