'BEFORE THE MOUNTAINS WERE BROUGHT FORTH, OR EVER THOU HADST FORMED THE EARTH AND THE WORLD, FROM EVERLASTING TO EVERLASTING THOU ART GOD.' [KJV PSALM 90:2]

Welcome My Friends.
We now begin a new 'Fall into Winter' 2018 Series of posts during our Saturday and Sunday times together for the purpose of answering three  very specific and forthright questions, to wit:
Does God Have a Plan for My Life?
What is God's Plan for My Life?
Must I Accept God's Plan for My Life, or, May I Refuse God's Plan and 'go my own way'?
Please, keep these three areas in mind, as we go forth in all the posts. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html

Post 2 of 2, 'First Things First', October 13, 2018;
Post 3, October 14, 2018.
Today, more than ever, the above three questions must be personally asked, and the answer must be ascertained. This is true, for as it is written in Romans 13:12-14, to wit:
'12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.
13 Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying.
14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.' [KJV}
God's desire and 'will', first and foremost, is for us to accept Him as Lord and Savior. You, have a 'choice'.
He will not 'force' you to do this, but, offer each and every person - 'the opportunity'.
Today, we learn the importance of 'the death of God the Son'. And yet, you still have a 'choice'. God, will never force His Grace on you, yes, 'you can go your own way'. I pray that you have not, or, will not. Amen. Amen.
It is totally by grace that He saved us, as it is written at Ephesians 2:4-10, to wit:
'4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, 5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved; 6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: 7 That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. 8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast. 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.' [KJV]
Further, we find at Philippians 2:12-13, to wit:'12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. 13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.'
And we have further assurance when we come to Christ, as written in Philippians 1:6, that: 'Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ..' [KJV}
Grace is God's unmerited favor toward us. That means we did not deserve it. It means that we can't ever do anything to earn it.
God has blessed us with a will. He will never violate our free will. It is one thing that is strictly our own. No one can force us to believe or not to believe. A person can be totally paralyzed and not be able to move a muscle and still be in charge of the way he or she feel and think. While others may be able to coerce us into doing things that we may not want to do, no one can tell us truly how to feel inside.
Why is this important? 'First things first'. God wants you to come to Him, by His Grace, through the Faith of Jesus Christ, who died at Calvary for you, and that you too, may have faith to come. Is this the day that you will come to the end of yourself, recognize that you are a sinner by nature and cannot do anything about that; but, that you believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God, who died for you so that you can be forgiven of sins, reconciled to God? Then, turn from your evil way, ask God to come into your life, forgive you of your sins, and give you a new heart, and make you His and what He wants you to be - Just Like Jesus. Will you, accept and receive Jesus Christ, to be now, your Savior, but more! Yes, will you accept and receive Jesus Christ as Your Master and Lord for the rest of your life??!!
My Friends, until and unless you take the 'first things first', the remainder of this series will be but 'reading' to you. You will not have the indwelling Holy Spirit who is given the moment you first believe to teach you the Scriptures, which are 'spirit and truth'. Your studies will simply be like a 'soundless gong'.
But, for those who have come to 'the faith', please stay tuned for more on the second and more 'specific will of God', for His Children. Amen. Amen. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
