…But for Adam there was not found a helper fit for him. So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and while he slept took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh. And the rib that the Lord God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man. Then the man said, “This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.” (Genesis 2:20b- 23 ESV)
I began reading my Bible- fall of ’91. Genesis seemed a great place to start, since first book in the Bible. Attending church, becoming a member of church, even active roles in church…do not count as studying God’s Word. We can function in church all our lives, and never move beyond point of salvation. I’m grateful to have been raised in church. Several years my parents did not attend, my brothers or friends’ mothers would pick up and take me home. I remember riding a church bus to a Vacation Bible School one summer. Every childhood step deepened my desire to be in church. Active in youth groups…yet, not until I began reading the Bible for myself, did Scripture become meaningful on a personal level.
Many are not raised in church, start line for maturity is same for all. Maturity begins when we study The Bible. As I began reading Genesis…amazed how action packed and how many childhood Bible lessons came from this book. I chose today’s scripture, because as we study and ask The Lord to help us understand, it’s like a light illuminated in darkness, awakened. God did not create confusion. Confusion is the devil’s tactic to deceive as many as he can. God created man, He created female. He created female to be the man’s helper.
I’ve never wanted to be done with social media more than the past week. Having to see post after post, such an abomination toward God…I know many share as need to bring awareness. Why is The Bible, not the only book to swear Congress into office? Why are false documents allowed? This is not the standards set in our country. Let’s get funding for this wall and people back to work. As one of my friends and I discussed this past weekend- still imperative to educate individuals in order not to fall victim to welfare mentality. Welfare was designed only as a help agent, not a career path of free money. It’s not free- tax payers pay. Then there’s the woman identifying as a man, attracted to a man, having a baby. Now does this make sense? Of course the woman is attracted to the man. This is God’s design. And…the X gender factor @ childbirth…really? All a product of societal confusion vs. Christ’s freedom.
There is so much spiraling out of control, it’s almost hard to watch. Thankful God informed…He never changes. He’s the same yesterday, today, and forever more. His Word is True. Nothing is to be left out. Our Pastor was so right stating, “All the hard parts of The Bible, they want to say is OT.” Jesus said there would be days like this…yes will mean no, and no will be yes. False prophets, false teachers…beware, test spirits by seeing what God’s Words say. Let’ be motivated to study God’s Word, Be alert, and avoid being deceived. We have good news to share! News that leads to eternal life with Jesus Christ. In this…we overcome this world!
