We live in a dynamic world that metamorphosed from being void, formless and darkness was upon it, in which the unchangeable changer brought it into being by His spoken words and with His artistic nature caused life to exist. This is the mighty work of God that no one can digress from or dispute on.
From the beginning of things, the Bible said everything that was made by God was good, what then brought about this changes to the extent that the creator himself has called His Creation a wicked generation? See Gen.6:5-6 which says: Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And the Lord was sorry that He made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart.
Can you imagine something that will make God to be sorry as well as grieved over such situation, it is a serious situation that should cause us to retract our steps and stand as to return to Him.
The energy, the evil one, our jealousies, pride, lust of our bodies and eyes and so many other vices war against the nature of God in us – because we are created in His own image and the breath in us is His. And this flies away and return to Him whenever our lives are over in this dynamic world.
Now how did the enemy brought about these changes into this creation of God that was so good?
After creation God planted a garden at Eden and instructed man to be in charge of everything that was created but instructed that the tree of knowledge of good and bad should not be touched for the day man touches it he shall surely die.
The man and his partner had been in that garden enjoying the goodness of their father knowing no pain, no sorrow until the jealous angel who wants to assume God’s position came into their lives and turn the once sweet communion with their father into sorrow, suffering, languish and pain, hence man was driven out of the sweetness of life into a bitter experience which we all came to experience.
A life of deceit, murder and all manner of things took center stage of the creation. Men no longer listen or hear the voice of our maker even when He speaks to us, we no longer obey His voice because the evil one is also at that point giving his own instructions and because the love for the Creator is no longer available in man, he is always doing those which comes from his master the devil and not that from God our maker.
God was wrought with his own but found a man who followed his way Noah and he confided in him and asked him to build an ark because He regretted that He made man and so He wanted to bring the rein of man to an end.
God through Noah brought back life and promised never to take such action against His Creation again. Let there be seed time and harvest… Winter and summer, and day and night shall not cease (Gen.8:21-22). God remembered how much He loved man whom He made in his own image through a little sacrifice made by Noah and his family that survived the flood. And with that He took that oath that have continued to create the different forms of lives on earth. See Gen.6-8.
I thank God that not all completely abandoned His ways because the patriarch’s too came into the scene and the nation Israel was born- a special people highly held by God no matter what they do, say or think. At any point of their lives God proves Himself that He remained their God and those who believed on Him have become co-heirs like the Israelites-his chosen people.
Does it mean all people are not creation of God or His children?
This doesn’t mean that all others are not His creation or children. The Bible stated in Matt 5:45:; “That you may be sons of your Father in heaven for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.” There’s no time God has abandoned his creation completely although in most or in some cases he rejects and punishes when we sin against Him. Sin is something God does not tolerate but He Himself saw the stiff crookedness of man hence decided that all should live together until the day of judgement. Sin also became the nature of every one born by a woman as a result of the one man sins at the garden of Eden.
Brethren know that there is going to be judgment. You believe it or not there’s judgement when every-man will appear before our Maker to give account of our stewardship. So do not say such day will not come it is even nearer to us now than before. The signs are so visible that everyone of us should prepare our lives for even Christ does not know the day the Father has kept for that, hence His admonitions to us all who are hearing the word and to those who might be going through this write up to watch and pray for no one knows the hour or time our Lord is coming (Matt. 24: 36-44).
Also, the Bible said in Matt.24: 35 that Heaven and earth will pass away, but His words will by no means pass away. And this is stressed in different areas.
Let’s see what Luke 21:34 -36 says and I quote; “But take heed to yourselves lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness and cares of this life and that Day come on you unexpectedly. For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch therefore and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man”.
Quite a passage that is admonishing us to draw more closer to God and the things of God rather than being engulfed in the pleasures of this passing world.
Love God more than any riches and all its attributes and don’t forget to love God’s image you see every day because if you cannot love your fellow human being created in God’s image how can you say you love God? Yes, there’s increase in wickedness for sure; hence the love for our fellow human beings diminishes but that’s God’s commandments that we love and hate not.
This does not mean that you cannot get angry or annoyed when you are offended but the Big Book of Wisdom stated in Eph.4:26-27 “Be angry and do not sin: do not let the sun go down on your wrath nor give place to the devil.”
I like the way MSG puts it. It says” Go ahead and be angry. You do well to be angry but don’t use your anger as fuel for revenge. And don’t stay angry. Don’t go to bed angry. Don’t give the devil that kind of foothold in your life.
Once you notice an anger in your life, communicate that situation with anyone most especially if you do not have a trusted friend, there’s always one you can rely on no matter the situation run to Jesus our Savior or God our Father in heaven. He knows how to take control of that heavy burden or situation from you or us. Note:. He is a burden Carrier and the lifter of our heads.
David said in Psalms 3:3-4 ” But You O Lord are a shield for me, My glory and the One who lifts up my head. I cried to the Lord with my voice and He heard me from His Holy hill.”. His arms are always open to welcome us no matter our conditions or situations. He is always faithful even in our faithlessness, He is an unchangeable Father, unshakable in His steadfast love and kindness to His Children no matter our situations in life, no matter who we are and He is always waiting to receive us just as we are.
Don’t fail to come to Him or call upon Him. Don’t say God cannot forgive my sins. Remember, Jesus came because of us sinners and was hanged on that cross for our sake. Get connected to this website here for more refreshing moments in the presence of God.
This world can change as many times as possible God knows it right from the day evil came into the scene and the choice of drawing closer to Him was given to everyone of us.
Do you have passion in doing what you like and which will bring joy and gladness to your life, then join me to experience this life fulfilling journey using the pen.

Because He has taken an oath to remain faithful to the ends of time and because He is not a man that can lie
