Liberty and Destiny by Pam Clark

The main thing, it's been said, is to keep the Main Thing the main thing. I can agree with that. We are each one taking a journey in this life, and our individual journey is important. But we are also taking that journey with billions of other people, therefore a lot is going on at the same time!

How do we find OUR course? We look for the Main Thing, which is Jesus. Jesus was a Man, but He was more than a Man, He was and is also a Revelation of God to man. It's through Him that we find our place in the Universe. Jesus overcame the inward and the outward problems of man. God did not leave you alone, He sent His Son!
This certainly is not a full theology course but it is something, that if you want to understand it, can help you.
Many people focus on sin more than they focus on God. "For all have sinned and come short of the Glory of God," they preach, but the SIN - even in that verse - is coming short of the Glory, and wallowing in guilt or rejecting Him by neglect! Therefore there is "a ministry of condemnation" that some men try to take control of, declaring themselves as "God" to other men. This is a great sin!

God has appointed ministry assignments and elders in the Body to help us, but salvation is MUCH MORE than just a repentance from your sins. It provides for that, and much, much more!

There is only one God and He is very real, though often misunderstood through false teaching and selfish ambitions. The power from this good God is accessible through prayer and proper understanding of His goodness and glory which is revealed in the Scriptures.

Remember when He passed by Moses, when Moses asked to see His Glory?

Exodus 34:
5 Now the Lord descended in the cloud and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the Lord. 6 And the Lord passed before him and proclaimed, “The Lord, the Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in goodness and truth, 7 keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and the children’s children to the third and the fourth generation.”

Do we know this God???

Jesus came to redeem this fallen world. He paid the FULL price. When our sight or vision is limited to the fallen, we have little hope but just to endure and HOPE that we get saved.

But when we ENGAGE Him, His real Life begins to manifest and we find a place in Him, a life in Him, a calling and assignment in Him, a work to do in Him, and it brings GLORY to God the Father!  And, many holy blessings to us!
We FIND the Jesus who saves, forgives, heals and delivers!

Then we are free to pursue our destiny, free indeed!  We find that fulfilling life that is everlasting in revelation and experience.  We have an awesome God.
