______...."This book of the law [the Word of God] shall not depart from [always be in] your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful [take heed] to do according to all that is written in it; for THEN you will make your way prosperous, and THEN you will have success".... Joshua 1:8 NASB





[part 1 of 8]



*____Way back yonder in the Garden the first man lived in the Presence of the Creator, Jehovah God.


____He had no sense of unfitness or need of fitness.


____He was like a child who climbs up into his father's arms. The child has no sense of fear, no sense of need, for he belongs; and because he belongs, he takes his place, he takes liberties.


____But when the great blunder was made, and Adam in a foolish moment sold out his vast privileges and rights to an enemy, he was driven away from the Presence; and a flaming sword was at the gateway to keep him out.


____That Garden of Desire with its tree of Life was known to all the people; and for thousands of years, until the flood came, and yet no one could get into the Presence of God.


____Then Jehovah separated Abraham and cut the Covenant with him, giving a promise of the Messiah to come through him; his descendants were also given a Law and a Priesthood, and they cut the Covenant with Jehovah through the priest.


____God dwelt in their midst in the Holy of Holies.


____No one could approach Him unless he was covered by a cloud of incense and had in his hand a basin of blood to sprinkle on the Mercy Seat; and that was only to be done once a year by the appointed priest.

this is so beautiful and such a testimony to the Lord's healing power and sanctification through our suffering. Much of my walk with Christ is similar to yours.
