ALL THINGS ARE OF GOD.
Man was actually made for God. But another seed stole man from God. The devil did. You’ll say how was man stolen from God. It is when a fruit give up itself for another by yielding to the offer of that seed that it comes under the seed. To do this, a rebellion must be ministered to the heart. Man actually rebelled against God.
All things are linked to Christ Jesus.
1 Corinthians 8:6 But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.
All things are linked to Christ Jesus. As everything is of Him, they are also of God. Remember,
John 17:10 And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.
ALL that is of God is of Christ. When a man is of Christ, he is also of God. Any man that comes to Christ as come to God. They are One.
1 John 5:7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three ARE ONE.
John 17:11 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, THAT THEY MAY BE ONE, AS WE ARE.
Even those that have not given their lives to Christ Jesus today, their reconciliation to the Father has been paid for, Jesus has paid for their coming into the Father with His blood. What is left for man is to accept this. Man is of God that’s why Jesus died for man in other to bring man back to God after the lost. Reconciliation occur after a lost.
2 Corinthians 5:18 And all things are of God, WHO HATH RECONCILED US TO HIMSELF BY JESUS CHRIST, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;
So that such a man that accept this payment and this reconciliation to the Father will have a new life.
2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
God has reconciled all to God. Man just need to acknowledge this to have it. He’s not imputing sin on man. He has paid for it.
2 Corinthians 5:19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.
Colossians 1:14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:
Man was created for God.
Colossians 1:15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:
1:16 For by him were ALL THINGS CREATED, that are in HEAVEN, and that are in EARTH, VISIBLE and INVISIBLE, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: ALL THINGS WERE CREATED BY HIM, AND FOR HIM:
1:17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.
Man consist in Christ. Man is for Christ. The devil may be taken over their souls but they are of God. They will come to us. For the belong to Him. That’s why we must be involved in the harvest of the earth for to win men to Christ. Man was made for God. He was meant to serve God. But God gave him a choice. All are for Him.
Romans 11:36 For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.
Man must identify with the Lord. Man is for God. God has interest in man. There is so much value God placed on man. For man to become like God, God has to die for man and be like a man. That’s why He came in the flesh.
John 1:14 And THE Word was made flesh, and DWELT AMONG US, (and we beheld HIS glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
Man is an open field of harvest, very open to all but as labourers we must harvest man to God. We must come into the business of heaven by getting man for God.
In the world today, a lot has forgotten about God. It tells in our legalism for abortion, gay right, etc. Yet we don’t want crime. These are crimes in itself. We have invited and allowed crime. That’s why there is must crime in the world today almost every nation. Peace can be known when all go back to the beginning. Jesus is the beginning for man and He is the ending of man. We must go back to the beginning in other to have a safe ending. When we don’t begin with Him, we can’t end in Him. When we lost the beginning, we have lost the ending, we must go back to the beginning, so to have an ending in Him. The beginning is given for the direction for the end. Jesus is that beginning and the end.
Revelation 1:8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.
Colossians 1:18 And he is the head of the body, the church: WHO IS THE BEGINNING, the firstborn from the dead; THAT in all things HE MIGHT HAVE the preeminence.
The purpose is that we must allow Him have preeminence in our lives and in our nation. He’s God. The essence of the beginning is for preeminence. Nations may think they have arrived and we may even call them developed nations, we make it sound like they have arrived, that’s not arrival. The arrival of man must be in Christ. Until man arrive in Christ he has not arrived.
