If You Miss It The Loss Is Immeasurable

June 26

“Show me your ways, O Lord,
teach me your paths.
Lead me in your truth and teach me,
for you are the God of my salvation..."
Psalm 25:4-5

The right way is not something the wisdom of a man can determine. Man seeks to enlarge himself, he sets his path according to the way he thinks will bring him the most wealth, success, recognition. But this can be deadly because what seems right to a man may actually be the way that will bring him to ruin.

“There is a way that seems right to a man,
but its end is the way of death.”
Proverbs 12:12

The Lord has a plan for each life, and it may be DIFFERENT from the plan the person has envisioned for himself.

I knew a man, a coworker who was in an adulterous relationship. We were working at a large conference. One of the speakers at the conference was a powerful, world-known preacher of the Gospel. While we were working, the man of God sent for my friend. We looked at each other, wondering what this man of God, who did not know my friend, was going to say. Trembling, he went to hear what he would say to him. When he returned I asked what the man of God said. And my friend said, “he told me that if I continue the way I’m going, I’m going to MISS what God planned for my life.”

What a lesson! He had feared that the man of God was going to castigate him, but no, his message was far more effective. “You’ll MISS what God had planned for your life.” These words reached my friend to the core, and he ended the affair immediately.

Sin brings destruction. But the greater consequence is missing the plan God had for one’s life. If you miss that, the loss is incalculable.

He Has Created All -Each After Its Particular Kind

June 25

“You are worthy, O Lord,
to receive glory and honor and power;
for you created all things,
and by your will they exist and were created.”
Revelation 4:11

God didn’t start a process of evolution. His Word says he CREATED. And he created every species “after its own kind.”

When the Lord repeats something in his Word, the importance of that repetition is to be noted. Note how many times he states that every species is “according to its kind.”

“Then God said,
‘Let the earth bring forth the living creature
cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth,
And God made the beast of the earth
and everything that creeps on the earth
And God saw that it was good.”
Genesis 1:24-25

Only in this generation since the discovery of DNA, can it be proved that nothing “evolves.” Each KIND of creature has a unique number and type of DNA, “ACCORDING TO ITS KIND.” So a fish will never bring forth a turtle, because the DNA of each is different – unique to its kind.

DNA mutations cause changes in the organism, but they are not beneficial changes. At the sin of Adam the DEATH PRINCIPLE took over the creation. Genes began to mutate generation after generation. But take note that a mutated gene never produces a benefit to the organism, only a DEgeneration, and they always cause a degrading because this is the death principle at work in the world, the result of the sin that came into God’s creation.

Most people do not realize how all-pervasive is the death principle over all life, even over animals; it even reigns over plant life.

It’s not evolution – it’s DEvolution – the death principle that all life is subject to.
