The Ministry of Damnation...Is it the Gospel?
God paid the price for every act of disobedience and transgression of man so that He could reconcile man to Himself. "God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation" (2 Cor. 5:19).
God has not committed unto us the word of DAMNATION in hell fire as is preached and taught by many...He has committed unto us the word of RECONCILIATION reconciling people unto Himself...which is practiced by few!
Man must understand, that he is not responsible for the condition he was born in. Men's fallen condition is a result of Adam’s fall and they can take no responsibility for their fleshly carnal nature. God showing His love for fallen man, was why Jesus went the way of the cross, and would understand that God knows that man, in his fallen condition, can't do anything in and of themselves to be reconciled to Him, so Jesus came to do what we could not do. He came to be the reconciler to reconcile mankind back to God. When Adam and Eve fell, God didn't throw a tantrum and condemn them nor did He abandon them; He had already made provision for their redemption before they fell, He reconciled them unto himself..
Here is a profound truth...Adam and Eve's redemption was based on God’s choice, not on their choice...Did you GET that!
WOW, does that not mean that...OUR REDEMPTION IS ALSO BASED ON GOD'S CHOICE NOT OUR CHOICE!
