No one, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the Kingdom of God.

says, “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing!

Let us all dwell on these 10 Bible verses that encourage us to finally let go of the past.

1. Philippians 3:12; “but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead. I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”

2. Luke 9:62; “But Jesus said to him, “No one, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.”

3. 1 John 1:9; “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from ALL unrighteousness.”

4. Matthew 6:15; “But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.”

5. Ephesians 4:31-32; “Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.”

6. Proverbs 4:25; “Let your eyes look straight ahead; fix your gaze directly before you.”

7. 2 Corinthians 12:8-9: “Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses so that Christ’s power may rest on me.”

8. Isaiah 12:2; “Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and will not be afraid; for the Lord God is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation.”

In Genesis 41:51, Joseph names his firstborn, Manasseh, saying, “For God, said he, hath made me forget all my toil and all my father’s house.”

There are a lot of Bible translations that refer to toil as troubles, and we all know how much Joseph suffered in his father’s house before God blessed him.

In spite of this, Joseph still chose to let go of the past, even giving the glory to God, showing that the past can be overcome with the grace of God, which is all we really need.

Look back at time…. How? Is it possible to look back in time?

Although huMans can’t ‘hop’ into a time machine and go back in time, we do know that clocks on airplanes and satellites travel at a different speed than those on Earth. What is ‘time’? NASA’s space telescopes also give us a way to look back in time. Telescopes help us see stars and galaxies that are very far away. Earth with ‘beings’ is a mere drop in existence. Mankind is a ‘story’ in the unfolding occurence of a manuscript that has already been penned. ‘Time’ is a consistent entity in life; but for The Creator of ALL things, both seen and unseen; it is a relativity.

If we were to lookup the greatest ‘minds’ of our ‘time one individual that would come up would be Albert Einstein –

What gave him the ‘ability’ to ‘see’ things at such a profound depth? But, still he is huMan. I present a question: “What/who/when are you?” I truly desire you to think on this question peppered with the follow-up of “After this, then what next?”

Truly, I bore with suppositions. Is there a text that is as old as time? We as huMan have been able since development to communicate. This can be deep! But rather than assess our conmunicaticative abilities; we look at cells the basic modicum of our existence. Cells communicate by sending and receiving signals. Signals may come from the environment, or they may come from other cells. … Sometimes the signal itself can cross the membrane. Other times the signal works by interacting with receptor proteins that contact both the outside and inside of the cell.

This is interesting; in the supernatural (which obviously came first) and the natural; communication is essential! This takes us a step backward

The scriptures make it clear that it was … to provide a place for the sons and daughters of God to dwell in mortality and prove themselves worthy, through keeping the commandments, to return to the presence of God from whence they came.

To create is to make things out of nothing, with no material at all being used. We cannot ask: why did God wait so long before creating the world, because before creation, there is no time. Time is a measure of change on a scale of before and after (Aristotle, Physics 4:11). Therefore when–if we may use that word at all in speaking of eternity–there was no change, there was no time. Time began to be when changing creatures came into being. Time is a restless continuous set of changes. Ahead is a moment we call future–it quickly changes into present–then quickly changes into past.

God could have created an everlasting world, without beginning or end. But he chose to create a world with a beginning–a time “before” which there was nothing. Genesis 1:1 tells us, “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” And Christ told His Father :”You loved me before the foundation of the world” (John 17:24).

Why did God create? The purpose of the created world is tied up with the purpose of man. St. Irenaeus wrote: “In the beginning God formed Adam, not because He was in need of humans, but so He might have someone to receive His benefits” (Against Heresies 4. 14. 1). So we can say He always loved us, since He always willed us the most basic good, existence. Beyond that, He wills that, “all be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth” (1 Timothy 2:4). If to will good to another is to love, then this is really Love. But when we love, we need a starter, we need to see something good or fine in another. But God Loved us when we did not exist.

Father LORD, my Creator; Your Essence has brought me to this point for a reason. But I chosen, a royal priesthood, a member a holy nation, by Your awesome grace I am Your Essence’ special possession, that I declare the praises of Your Essence Who called me out of darkness into Your holiness’ wonderful light, Amen.
