Murky Clarity

(This must be an important blog. I lost everything
with the last word written!)

Todays blog is on a difficult and under preached
subject and, thus, is not understood by many
Christians resulting in unbelief and insecurity.
The topic is 'God's Sovereignty.'

Ephesians 1:3,4 KJV
"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus
Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual 
blessings in heavenly places in Christ, according
as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation
of the world..."

Paul says we were chosen in Him before the
foundation of the world. Don't move on too quickly.
This speaks of a sovereign God who purposed you
in Christ before creating the world. Notice the words,

Revelation 13:8
"...the lamb slain from the foundation of the world." 
These few words are so extreme, that I went to other
translations, two of which, say:
"...everyone whose name has not been written 
before the foundation of the world in the Lamb's 
book of life."

So which is it? They do not say the same thing. I
then went to the Greek and found that the Lamb,
our Jesus was slain from, or before, the foundation
of the world.

Every Believer was chosen in Christ and then slain
in Christ before the foundation of the world. I believe
it was before the angels were created because the
enemy "would not have killed the Prince of Glory,"
had he known. Talk about security!!!!

Reader, think out of the box; think out of time.
Realize that God finished everything before He
created anything. You can cry, "It's all rigged and
I have no choice at all," or you can fall down
before Him in awe and wonder.

I am in Him; He is in me--for time and eternity!

If you want to explore this subject in greater depth,
I recommend you spend time in "Daily Crow" by
MP. It is not an easy read but well worth the time!
