    The Power of Choice

    Re-Defining the Church
    When Eve was deceived by the serpent (the devil) and Adam willfully transgressed the commandment of God, everything changed for the worst. If it had not been for the omniscience and intervention of our loving Father, we would have been lost forever. But God, who is rich in mercy (see Eph 2:4-5)…in all of His infinite wisdom not only came to our rescue, but also intervened so that we would not PERMANENTLY cut ourselves off from Him by eating of the tree of life. Listen to this, “you can’t eat of the tree of life and the tree of knowledge.” It’s right there. What’s right there?

    We each have two major choices in life; each one has consequence concerning our future. To serve God or to serve the devil, those are the choices. We can’t serve two masters. We can’t fellowship with God and the devil. We can’t do two wills. We can’t, we can’t, we can’t... Now let me define can’t. It’s not that you cannot do these things because you can, really. But…if you want a certain outcome, future, or destiny, doing both will abort everything and doing one will cancel out the other. If you want God choose the things of God; if you want the devil choose worldly demonic things. So can’t is defined as don’t, for your own sake.

    Paul said it this way in I Cor 10:21-22, “And you can’t have it both ways, banqueting with the Master one day and slumming with demons the next. Besides, the Master won’t put up with it. He wants us—all or nothing. Do you think you can get off with anything less (The Message)?” In II Cor 6:14-15 he also says, “Don’t become partners with those who reject God. How can you make a partnership out of right and wrong? That’s not partnership; that’s war. Is light best friends with dark? Does Christ go strolling with the Devil? Do trust and mistrust hold hands (The Message)?”

    And why is this so important? Because God our Father is still trying to save a dying corrupt world (you, I, and others) from destroying ourselves by the wrong choices we make in life. Bon Appétit
