Paradise awaits!

Death did not become our destined end until sin entered life and we became disobedient to The One who created all of life.

The Creator God gives and takes away. He has the True Right.

But sin permeated our being, first with Adam and Eve, and then with Cain, and it continues down through history to today.

"And the Lord God commanded the man, saying,Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it, you shall surely die." (Genesis 2:16-17)

The Lord God rules.

The serpent, representing Satan and all that is evil, suggested God was not All Knowing, All Powerful.

The woman, Eve, questioned and considered. And then she determined to check it out for herself.

"So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate." (Genesis 3:6)

And she gave to her husband, who freely ate.

And then their eyes were opened and they knew they had sinned.


It all came down around them.

Life in Paradise, where sin did not lurk and conquer, where death was not the distasteful end, was no more.

The promise God declared, "you shall surely die,"  became the curse for every man, woman and child, for every creature that was created by The Lord God.

The curse of pain and sorrow, of exhausting labor, of thorns and thistles, rocks and sandy soil.

The Lord God rules,

This Will Be Your Life

"till you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for dust you are, and to dust you shall return." (Genesis 3:19)

The Lord God pronounced sentence. Judgment was made as Adam and Eve were driven from God's glorious world of Paradise to the world of selfishness.

It was not until God came to mankind in the form of a human - Jesus Christ, that a way to return to Paradise was made.

Paradise came at a heavy price. Jesus came to save our souls from the damnation of sin we carry and live under each and every day.

He bore the weight of every sin we possessed - past, present and future. He who knew no sin, went to the cross to redeem you (and me), to set us free to live a life of Love and Peace and Everlasting Life.

His death came and He was buried, but three days later, His body was resurrected.

He Arose! He Lives! He Reigns! Paradise is His.

Paradise can be yours too.

Come to the Father.
Come to the Lord Jesus.
Seek His forgiveness.
A New Beginning.

Accept His Love for you.
Believe He died for you.
Confess your sins to Him
and live

Paradise awaits!
