FATHER’S Love Plan Part 10

In the garden, FATHER established boundaries with Adam and Eve for their protection.  In Genesis chapter 2 it is written by THE SPIRIT:

15 Then the LORD God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it.

16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat;

17 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.”

The boundary HE established was for their own benefit and protection for this is the motivation of Love.  All they had to do was to stay within the boundary of HIS command and trust HIS integrity.  When we question FATHER’S Word and Love’s motives, we allow the poison of unbelief to enter in and cause death and destruction to take us down another path contrary to The Way.

When man chooses to cross the boundaries that Love establishes there are consequences.  Within those boundaries are peace and safety but outside those boundaries are anxiety and scarcity.  Why venture outside the boundary FATHER has established?  All it does is confirm the unbelief in your heart.

Paul started out with unbelief in his heart concerning Jesus being the Messiah.  He was extremely intelligent and well educated but that did not translate into revelation and understanding.  In 1 Timothy chapter 1, HE wrote by THE SPIRIT:

12 And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord who has enabled me, because He counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry,

13 although I was formerly a blasphemer, a persecutor, and an insolent man; but I obtained mercy because I did it ignorantly in unbelief.

14 And the grace of our Lord was exceedingly abundant, with faith and love which are in Christ Jesus.

15 This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief.

16 However, for this reason I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might show all longsuffering, as a pattern to those who are going to believe on Him for everlasting life.

17 Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, to God who alone is wise, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.

This well-educated man came to the realization of his condition of unbelief and even realized that he was a “chief sinner” but by FATHER’S mercy and grace, Love prevailed.  Once his eyes were opened, Paul changed and became obedient to Love’s plan.  He had a new set of boundaries to live by and was willing to endure any manmade adversity to fulfill his part of the Love plan.

Proverbs directs us to live in certain boundaries.  If we choose to leave those boundaries Wisdom has established, we will surely experience hardship.  We must not allow the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, or pride of life to draw us away from the boundaries established by FATHER.

In Hebrew chapter 3, it is written by THE SPIRIT:

12 Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God;

13 but exhort one another daily, while it is called “Today,” lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.

14 For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end,

15 while it is said:

​“Today, if you will hear His voice,

​​Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.”

Once you depart from the boundary of Love, your heart is subject to becoming an “evil heart of unbelief”.  These writings are to encourage you to remain within the boundaries of Love and pursue the fruit thereof.  There are acts of Love we are encouraged to pursue so let us not resist what FATHER is urging us to do.  Those acts result in seeds being planted allowing us to produce a greater harvest.  If we sow sparingly, we reap sparingly.  If we sow within the boundaries FATHER has established, we will maximize our harvest.
