Prayer Meditation #73


 July 22, 2017. 7:00-7:15 A.M. USA. NIGERIA 1:00-1:15 P.M. #73 PRAYER MEDITATION Behold, The Awesomeness Of His Grace (It Is Done) Part 2.

“You must know (recognize) that you were redeemed (ransomed) from the useless (fruitless) way of living inherited by tradition from {your} forefathers, not with corruptible things {such as} silver and gold, But {you were purchased} with the precious blood of Christ (the Messiah), like that of a {sacrificial} lamb without blemish or spot. It is true that He was chosen and foreordained (destined and foreknown for it) before the foundation of the world, but He was brought out to public view (made manifest) in these last days (at the end of the times) for the sake of you.” (1Peter.1:18-20)

“And all the inhabitants of the earth will fall down in adoration and pay him homage, everyone whose name has not been recorded in the Book of Life of the Lamb that was slain {in sacrifice} from the foundation of the world.” (Revelation.13:8)

It is interesting to discover from the aforementioned scripture passages, that man was forgiven and saved, before he came into natural existence, sinned and fell into ruins as God’s Temple in Adam. The omniscient and wonderful God, who knows what needs to be done, that his loving, forgiving, merciful and gracious heavenly nature or life, may be expressed through man on earth, forgave and saved man before He created the world, and gave man a natural body from the dust of the earth, for the expression of his heavenly image, likeness and dominion on earth.

The aforesaid great sacrifice of God Himself, for man’s forgiveness and total salvation before the foundation of the world, is a clear demonstration of the awesomeness of his grace, which is intended to make the sin of man and its consequences not to militate against the accomplishment of God’s pre-eminent and irrevocable purpose for man, to be the Bride, for the birthing of God’s image, likeness, dominion, glory and fullness on earth. It is evident therefore, that man’s sin and the subsequent fall, was not accidental; the omniscient wise God, initiated and allowed it, because of his purpose that He intends to accomplish through it which is the expression of his Name, i.e. nature and works, which is what man is also to express on earth, as the Lord Jesus did.

God’s pre-eminent purpose, which is his plan to reveal his loving, forgiving, merciful and sacrificial lamb nature to all creatures through man, made Him to make man liable to sin; God’s intention in this regard is to use the occasion of man’s sin, to reveal his forgiving and merciful nature to man, so that man, whose major work on earth is the expression of God’s image and likeness, may find it easy to forgive and be merciful, since he has been privileged to see through God, what forgiveness and mercy is. The occasion of man’s sin as a result of  the inherent sinful nature with which he was formed from the dust of the earth, was what God the great Teacher, used to teach man what forgiveness and mercy is all about.

The sinful nature inherent in man, was the avenue God, the Author and Finisher of what He created man for, used to teach man what forgiveness and mercy, which are very important attributes of his life or nature of love are. In the absence of sin, man would not have been privileged to learn from God, what the loving, forgiving and merciful nature of God that he was created to manifest on earth is. The need for man to have an experience of God’s loving, forgiving, merciful and sacrificial lamb-nature of God, so that he may be able to express same, as God’s Son (God’s Revealer) on earth, made it necessary for God to make and allow man function as a sinful, natural, earthly minded being for sometime, with the intention of making a spiritual, heavenly minded being out of the same man – thus demonstrating the awesomeness of his grace, and wonderfulness of his glorious Name. The aforesaid is why man must be born again. Glory to God.
