God’s first word to man

  1. God is eternal. He is the I-AM. Jesus is God. He came in the flesh to redeem us from sin. We then can have from him “eternal redemption” Hebrews 9.12.

  2. Man-made religions grow easily, because they appeal to man’s lower nature. But the true gospel grows powerfully because it is God’s power to save, Romans 1.16-17.

  3. God’s first word to man was a blessing, Genesis 1.28. From the first, God intended good for man.

  4. The Jewish religion at the time of Jesus was a far cry from the law given by God through Moses. Man had changed it. All such change is for the worse, as today.

  5. An denominationalist wrote there are many “Christianities” and gloried in that fact. What a shame!

  6. An original verse: To God belong the first and best, / A sign that’s his, as well, the rest.

  7. A Bible verse: “Through faith they conquered kingdoms, administered justice, gained what was promised, shut the mouths of lions” Hebrews 11.33 NET.
