Knowing the End From the Beginning


Isaiah 46;9b-10a I am God, and there is none like Me, declaring the end from the beginning,

Isaiah 46:11 Indeed I have spoken it; I will also bring it to pass. I have purposed it; I will also do it.

The Creator God of Heaven and earth knows the end of everything before it starts. He knows the end of each life as of these birds that have not hatched yet. He knows what their life will be like and how different from one another they will be. He knows the day and hour and minute that each one will fall to the ground never to fly again.

This omnipotent God formed man from the elements in the earth and gave him eternal life, never to grow old or be sick or have any trouble. He was formed in the likeness of his Creator, and placed in a utopian garden where he could thrive. I have wondered so many times just how long he may have lived before that fateful day when he reached out for the forbidden fruit. And, a second question, why did the Creator plant such a tree in the garden at all? They were in a paradise that was beyond our comprehension where everything was provided and all their needs were met as the need arose.

Ah, the worship leader who had a desire to be worshipped for his abilities and beauty. He became a deceiver since he had deceived himself thinking he should be worshipped.

We are still in the Plan “A” of the Creator since He knew from the beginning what was in the heart of all that He was to create. He saw the deception in the Garden, He saw the fallen angels and the depravity of mankind and He saw Noah. He saw Abraham, David and the likes of Ezekiel, Jeremiah, Isaiah, Daniel, Joel and Zechariah. He saw the birth of Yeshua and all that would ensue after that and yes, He saw you and me and He knows whose names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life when all is said and done. He has given all of us the right to choose our own eternal destiny and calls upon us daily to “choose life”. I am noticing that in the book of Revelation, it says in chapter 21, the Lamb’s book of life and who is the Lamb but Yeshua, it is His book of life. All those who are written in His book will eternally be with Him in His Kingdom.
