"PLAN B”


We discovered that man didn’t do very well under “Plan A.”

There is an old saying “What you don’t know can't hurt you,” but I suspect that if you said that to Adam he would disagree.

Had he known how disobeying GOD would cause him to lose everything, I feel he wouldn't have chose to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

Lets suppose that we are listening in on a conversation between Adam and Eve shortly after they were sent forth from the garden; Adam; if I knew then what I know now I would never disobeyed what GOD told us. Eve; at the time it didn’t seem to be a big deal, in fact it seemed both logical and reasonable.

So GOD’S plan today is plan “B” where we are given the opportunity once again to receive eternal life just like Adam had in the garden. All he had to do was eat of the tree of life for it was on the list of trees that it was okay to eat from.

There is one big difference between Adam in his day and ours today and the distinction needs to be made. Adam had right standing before the LORD while we don’t.

Just as Adam was made righteous by creation we are made righteous by recreation via the new birth. This being the case we have the same relationship now with GOD as Adam had in the garden. However there is also some other things we have to deal with and that is the knowledge of good and evil plus the evil (the tempter) one with his expanded abilities.

Adam only had to deal with one “Don’t” while we have seemingly have thousands of do not’s. Life is far more complicated under plan “B,” but the answer is the same as then, obey the words of GOD.

It is easy to look at Adam and say how foolish he was, it was so simple just do what he was commanded to do, but the same can be said of us today. All we have to do is obey his commandments.

Ecclesiastes 12:13 Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandment, for this is the whole [duty] of man.

What happens if we fail to follow the rules of plan ”B”, then we move on to plan ”C” this is not an approved plan by GOD, and those who choose it will pay the cost for deciding for it. We will look at it next.
