Are favorites played? YES! The Creator of ALL things seen and unseen DOES have favorites!
Before you roll your eyes or click off this share…if/when you really care for something/someone, what do you do to safeguard it? Pretty much everything you can!
There was Creation, Man stepped away from a somewhat simple (arguments/discussion will ensue.) And everything was altered! Stepping back in time, if truly we are aware of good and evil, why do we choose evil? 🤔. More discussion…
Re-do. The flood – Noah and family to Abraham – the father of faith. A Family was born!
Israel had become a den of iniquity, a land of hypocrisy, a place where the poor were trodden down and the name of the Lord was not honored. But even in this sad state, if Israel would have truly repented, seeking to do good and not evil, God would have foregone the judgment that was coming upon them.
A predestined re-do for ALL Mankind!
But when the fullness of the time came, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the Law, so that He might redeem those who were under the Law, that we might receive the adoption as sons. Galatians 4:4-5
But as many as received Jesus, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name. John 1:12
God predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of God’s will. Ephesians 1:5
For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things, and through whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to perfect the author of their salvation through sufferings. And again,
“I will put My trust in Him.”And again,“Behold, I and the children whom God has given Me.” Hebrews 2:10,13
You, Lord, are The just judge of all the nations. You judged Your people Israel for their sins, and You will not do less with the Gentiles. Blessed is that nation whose God is The Lord! But if Men forget God and persist down the path to destruction, we know there is a just God in Heaven to Whom they must answer. Let us not think that our nation is exempt from Your judgments, O Lord, but let us seek real revival that You may bless us and not curse us, as a nation. Amen.
