Ready for the Restoration!

And when our Lord comes with all his people, I pray he will make your hearts pure and innocent in the sight of God the Father.

1 Thessalonians 3:13

By eating the forbidden fruit in the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve came to know "Good and Evil."  The problem with knowing Good and Evil is that you become acquainted with an option to God!  You see you can only identify something as "Good" if you know that it might not be Good and would then be Evil.  God knew that there was Good and Evil, but Adam and Eve did not.  Adam and Eve knew only God and God was and is Good.

After the FALL Adam and Eve were destined to die both physically and spiritually.  Such has been the case for every man and woman born since.  Jesus came to fix that problem.  Our new bodies will live forever as Adam and Eve would have done, had they not sinned.  And our "hearts become blameless in holiness before our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus." 

You know the frailty of your own human body, and you know the wickedness of your own heart.  The mission of Jesus was to restore you to the perfect condition of Adam and Eve before he FALL of man.  In that RESTORED REALITY OF HEAVEN you will have a blameless heart and a new body that will live forever!

My son-in-law supports his family by restoring old trucks.  He takes a truck that is old, worn, and "past it's prime" and turns it into a thing of beauty far better than even when it was new.  Kerry can't make a truck last forever, but Jesus does that with your life.  He makes you even better than you were the day you were  born and gives you a new life that will last forever!

"Lord Jesus, thank You for making me ready for Eternity.  I know that I need a blameless heart and a body that will last forever, and those are just the things that You have promised.  May You be praised forever.  Amen."
