Long ago, God promised "Abe,"
that in His seed, all men would be saved (Gen. 22:18; 26:4).
This was the gospel, revealed in the Christ (Gal. 3:8),
who took on flesh and paid the price (Eph. 1:7: Col. 1:14).
For it was always understood
that forgiveness came by the shedding of blood (Heb. 9:22).
The cross was a vital part of God's plan (John 12:32; Eph. 2:16; Col. 1:20),
in His heart before the world began (Rev. 13:8).
Time rocked on; Abe's kids sinned (Rom. 3:23),
because they had no power within (Rom. 7:17-20),
until Jesus gave us a second birth; (I Pet. 1:23).
then a New Creation walked the earth (II Cor. 5:17).
The promises of God are "yea" and "Amen," (II Cor. 1:20)
birthed from above, we begin again (John 3:3).
We are sons of God, you and me, (I Jn. 3:1),
forgiven, glorified, sanctified and free (Rom. 3:24,28;8:1).
He'll send us forth to every nation (Rom. 10:14-15)
to speak peace to all creation (Zec. 9:10).
He'll restore His creation to pristine glory (Acts 3:21),
the perfect ending to the "mud creature's" story (Rev. 21:2-6).
