Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you [ 1 Peter 1:20]
I believe in the purposes of God for the world of man. I believe in His foreknowledge and insight…and in the goodness of His heart towards the world of man. I trust in His purposes. I trust in God! I wonder at His Love for us. I am moved to awe and allegiance at the steadfastness of His Love towards us. We see this love most poignantly displayed in the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ! The lamb that was slain…foreordained before the foundation of the world…God’s grand eternal agenda! Even before Adam sinned, God’s idea was to gather all of man into Jesus Christ.
Christ was not the afterthought following Adam’s transgression…He was and has always been God’s original intent!
It is the Book of Ephesians that paints this portrait most suggestingly…
Ephesians 1:4-5: According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:
5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will.
Glory to God!
He chose us IN HIM before the foundation of the world…that today we should be called children of God! Today, we live in the dispensation that has made manifest this original intent of God. O dear reader! Will you fully embrace today what the light has made manifest of Him?
