What more could He have done....

Hello Brothers and Sisters

I've been thinking about all the things the LORD has provided for us.  So many many things in so many ways.  All because He loves us so dearly.  He doesn't want to lose a one of us.  We are His children.  If you've ever had a child you know how much you love them and would do and give anything for that child to live and breathe in health and happiness for eternity.  I know this is how much our Heavenly Father feels for us. 

The Holy Bible, GOD's very word  (the LORD) to us as a record and a witness to show how much He loves us.  From His creation of our home and the path of His plans to guide us and show us Good and Truth so that we might see and hear.  That we might ingest the Good and Truth and live it and understand that it is that very thing that is life and life eternal.

The earth itself, the perfect orbit around the sun.  The moon and its perfect orbit around the earth.  All the planets in just our solar system and their orbits in perfect distance from each other and the sun with their moons in perfect orbit around them.  Not to mention the universe and the perfect order it abides in.  All planned and executed in perfection.
The earth, our home away from home is amazing all by itself.  From a chunk of rock floating in space GOD's power (the LORD) molded and formed this perfect home for us.  Over time He established all the right elements in just the right amounts to hold and sustain life. 
Then He created life to live in this beautiful world and provided all the means to sustain this life He had created.

Gen 1:1-2
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
Gen 1:29-31
And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.
And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
At this point GOD had created man, male and female created He them. And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:
And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
This man is known as Neanderthal man.
Gen 2:4-5
These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens,
And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.
Now why would the LORD say that there was not a man to till the ground???
The LORD had not a man to till HIS knowledge into the earth so it could be filled with Good and Truth and live.
Then the LORD formed out the dust of the ground a very special man.
Gen 2:6-8
But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.
A mist went up from the earth and watered the whole earth,  this mist is the power of the LORD!  He watered the whole earth with His knowledge so every plant of the field, every herb of the field could grow.  Who told all these plants and herbs how to grow and what to eat to survive and thrive.  How to multiply and spread their seeds.  The power of the LORD did!!! 
And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
A living soul..........The very breath of the LORD filled this special man and he became a human being.  With the soul this man, this human being had the vehicle to know the LORD intimately and till the ground of the earth.  To learn from the LORD His goodness and truth and to share this with all of mankind that existed on the earth.  To cultivate the whole of earth with GOD's goodness and truth so all the earth would grow and live in beauty and peace.
And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.

Gen 6:5-6
And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
Gen 6:8
But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.
Gen 6:12-13
And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.
And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.
Because we chose and continued to allow and practice wickedness (sin),  like a systemic infection it grew and spread thru out all the earth.  One man and his family began again to multiply and replenish the earth with GOD's goodness and truth. 
GOD then began to bring forth a special people, a people from which He would use to bring forth His tables of stone with His covenant of Goodness and Truth.  The Ten Commandments of which gave all mankind an example of how to live in goodness and righteousness.
Gen 12:1-3
Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee:
And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:
And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
Gen 18:19
For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him.
Gen 26:5
Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.
Abraham did these things in Gen 26:5 before the Ten Commandments were created by the very finger of the LORD God.
From Abraham to Isaac, to Jacob (Israel) and his twelve sons which are the twelve tribes of Israel the generations came and endured many trials and received many blessings from the LORD God.  This special people loved the LORD God and knew Him and followed Him.  As with all mankind they have had their times of falling away from the Good of God and following the practices of the heathen surrounding them.  The Old Testament of the Holy Bible is a history of these struggles.  The LORD God in his longsuffering and patience continued to guide and teach this special people so they could be a witness to all the world.

The land had a great famine and thru the hand of LORD God Joseph (11th son of Jacob) was placed as second in command of all Egypt.  Knowing and following GOD, Joseph had the wisdom to store food for this famine.  Jacob and all the tribes came to Egypt and lived in the land of Goshen.  There they grew many generations until the Egyptians felt threatened and put them under severe bondage.  The cries of the people came before GOD and He heard them.  The LORD God (Power of GOD) sent Moses to free His people

Exo 3:2-10
And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.
And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt.
And when the LORD saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I.
And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground.
Moreover he said, I am the God of thy father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. And Moses hid his face; for he was afraid to look upon God.
And the LORD said, I have surely seen the affliction of my people which are in Egypt, and have heard their cry by reason of their taskmasters; for I know their sorrows;
And I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land unto a good land and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey; unto the place of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites.
Now therefore, behold, the cry of the children of Israel is come unto me: and I have also seen the oppression wherewith the Egyptians oppress them.
Come now therefore, and I will send thee unto Pharaoh, that thou mayest bring forth my people the children of Israel out of Egypt.
Exo 7:3-7
And I will harden Pharaoh's heart, and multiply my signs and my wonders in the land of Egypt.
But Pharaoh shall not hearken unto you, that I may lay my hand upon Egypt, and bring forth mine armies, and my people the children of Israel, out of the land of Egypt by great judgments.
And the Egyptians shall know that I am the LORD, when I stretch forth mine hand upon Egypt, and bring out the children of Israel from among them.
The Glory of the LORD God came forth for all the world to see in the deliverance of His people by a mighty hand.  The LORD brought forth His armies which were the plagues of Egypt for a witness to all the world. Parting the Red Sea and destroying the army of Pharaoh. 
During their 40 years in the wilderness the Hand of God fed them with manna from heaven.  Literal food and the meat of His word to bring them back into the Goodness which is GOD.  A generation had to pass to purge the influence of Egypt from their hearts.
 Moses had a face to face with our LORD God on Mt Sinai during this time when the LORD God came down and wrote with His very finger the Ten Commandments ( a covenant with us) to give us a way to live in His Goodness.

GOD has always and will always provide a way for His children.  Is it so very hard to accept His love for us and follow His ways???  Is it so very hard to understand that His Goodness and Love and enduring Mercy are all for us???  How can anyone being truly honest with themselves turn away from these things.  Turn from the things of the flesh and never look back.  I promise you will never be sorry.

What more could He have done???

Love and Blessings in the name of our LORD JESUS CHRIST!!!
