My finite mind can’t begin to imagine the beauty and splendor of the Garden of Eden.

God said it was good!

The definition for good is: bountiful, fertile, free from injury or disease, pleasant, full. That was the Garden. Then was added the good couple, good occupation, good life, and personal relationship with the Creator. Once

God called Abram from his family and his nativity. He was promising to make Abram a great nation. Abram renamed Abraham, followed God, and became the great Nation. Time after time, God provided everything they ever needed through His divine power. He even parted the Red Sea, bringing them to the promised land. He was their God, and they were His people. Once.

In July 1620, some religious group, called Puritans, left for a brave new world. They desired to serve God without human-made rules and restrictions. That world evolved into who we are today—One Nation, (not) under God. Once.

But GOD…”For the grace of God, that bringeth salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lust, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in this present world.” With all its woes, this world, diseases, heartaches, and even deaths threat has been conquered in Jesus Christ and Him crucified.

The Holy Spirit was sent for our comfort, to seal us and give us wisdom and revelation of the knowledge of God. He’s given all for the perfection of His people. Once

So why are you where you are now? God, His love, and His plan have not changed. Every good and every perfect gift comes from the Father of lights, with Whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. Once given to you, that great gift is priceless. You can call upon the Great “I AM” to repair what is lacking to bring you back to that personal relationship, the parting of your Red Sea, being His returned child, and the needed revelation of the knowledge of God. You can have your ONCE, again.
