HAS THE GOSPEL MESSAGE LOST SOME OF ITS GLORY SINCE FIRST DELIVERED?

"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.. And all was very good" [Gen 1:1, 27 and 31].

...God's rescue from the outcome of "missing the mark" sin "was finished from the foundation/creation of the world" [Heb 4:3]. "My word that goes out from my mouth will accomplish all I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it" [Is 55:11]. Perfect, makes no mistakes. Can lose nothing. Ultimately all will repent.. there may even "be weeping and gnashing of teeth" in "outer darkness" but - "In Christ all will be made alive! Each in his own order - those who are Christ’s at His coming, then the end when Christ hands the kingdom over to God the Father.. that He may be all in all" [1 Cor 15:22-28].

Once Upon A Time

Once upon a time and long ago, in a day when the people languished, there came a Prince, from another place and from another time. He came to save his people, and to save the world.
   
"Savior of the World" was one of the many things which was written about him.
   
But the world knew him not! And executed him on a tree called a cross.
   
"Pick up your cross and follow me" he said, "I make you fishers of men, throughout all the world, until I come again. The lion will eat straw like the ox, the bear will graze with the cow. The Father who sent me is greater than I."
   
"If I be lifted up from the Earth (on that tree) I will draw all to me. But each one in their own time, like three measures of meal. I being the Firstfruits, the first one of my Father, then those who rise and are vivified at my return.. Then the end, when I hand all things into the hands of my Father, and He shall be all, and in all." (see 1 Corinthians 15:22-28!)
   
"Yet once more shall the Earth be shaken and what will fall will fall. It's then to look up, for Earth's redemption draws nigh."
   
"Until then, come apart from the crowd, regularly, and through Me, enter the magic and miracle of My Father's Presence for strength, guidance and renewal. And always, for the light of love to guide you through each day."
   
"Until love be the ruling force, each one convinced.. and every little thing, forever, on its right course. A happily ever after that surpasses any fondest dream.
   
It will be a brand new day.
   
For one day soon, we will come to you, and with you we will stay".

  1. This is absolutely beautiful!! Are you paraphrasing or is this a translation?

  2. ..thank you.. Some are Bible verses quoted.. others are paraphrased.. Jesus did say "if I be lifted up from the earth I will draw all to me" John 12:32 - some translations add words - like "peoples" - "will draw all peoples" - words added by translators are usually in italics.

    Isaiah 11:7 says "the lion will eat straw like the ox.. the bear will graze with the cow"

    And the Bible calls Jesus "savior of the world".. Rev chapter 21 tells how ALL things will be made new and the Father and Son will dwell with man upon the earth made new..

    God bless!
