A Clue Runs Throughout the Bible
It is necessary for everyto read the every day for their spiritual devotionals. But do you know that there is a clue which covers the entire Bible? It is God’s management plan.
At the beginning, God created the heavens and earth and all things. Then he created Adam and Eve in the image of Him. But they succumbed to the snake’s temptation later and ate the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Finally, they were driven from the Garden of Eden by God….
After mankind was corrupted by Satan, God started His management plan of saving man. At first, God used Moses to decree laws to lead man in their lives on earth. He made man know what sin is and learn how to worship Him, how to give sacrifice and how to abide by laws and commandments. However, as man became increasingly corrupt, they were unable to keep the laws and committed more and more sins. There were not enough sacrifices for their sins, so they would face being put to death by the laws. God would not like to see that result because He loves man. In order to save man, He became flesh personally and came among people to do His work. He is the Lordwhom we are familiar with. Jesus did a lot of work in His thirty-three and a half years. He preached the of and made man confess sins and repent. Finally, He was nailed to the cross as the sin offering for mankind. So, as long as we confess our sins and repent before Him, not only will our sins be forgiven, but we can gain the abundance of grace bestowed by Him. So we are lambs that God spent much money to buy back.
Maybe someone would ask: Has God’s plan of saving man ended? No, it has not. For God just redeemed mankind by crucifixion. That is to say, God does not remember our sins for He forgave our sins. But that does not mean we have no sins within. As our sinful nature was not cast away, we can still sin and resist God. It was recorded in the Bible that: “Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord” (Hebrews 12:14). Man cannot enter God’s kingdom unless he is holy and only holy one can enter the kingdom of heaven. It is prophesied in the Bible that God will come back again and will do the work of judgement in the last days: “For the Father judges no man, but has committed all judgment to the Son” (John 5:22). When we mention the Son, that refers to God’s flesh. So in the last days, God will become flesh for the second time to do the work of judgement and chastisment, through which He will purify and save us thoroughly, casting away our sinful nature. When we no longer sin and resist God, God’s management plan of saving man will be accomplished. From this clue which covers the entire Bible, we can see God’s love to us, God’s hope on us and the greatest painstaking price God has paid for us.
After reading this post, I thought a passage of Man Can Only Be Saved Amidst the Management of God”）, “The love and compassion of God permeates each and every detail of His management work, and regardless of whether people are able to understand God’s good intentions, He is still tirelessly doing the work that He intends to accomplish. Irrespective of how much people understand of the management of God, the benefits and assistance of the work done by God can be appreciated by everyone. Perhaps, today, you have not felt any of the love or life provided by God, but as long as you do not abandon God, and do not give up on your determination to seek the truth, then there will always be a day when God’s smile will be revealed to you. For the aim of the work of God’s management is to recover the mankind who is under the domain of Satan, not to abandon the mankind who has been corrupted by Satan and opposes God.” （“
