"PLAN C”


We started out with “Plan A,” and found that due to the fact that man had been endowed with “free choice” that he failed in obedience to GOD when tempted by Satan’s agent.

Having moved on to “Plan B,” where man has been given the opportunity to return to a state of right standing before GOD.

Due to the fact that many are carte blanche rejecting GOD’S offer under “Plan B,” there has been a new plan created as a result of that action. This plan is called “Plan C,” which is the result of rejecting “Plan B.”

So where are we now?

There are a vast throng of people who are determined to live according to “Plan B,” reaping the benefits therein while even a larger group have chosen to live according to “Plan C.”

Those living according to “Plan C” can find their counterparts just prior to the flood where people were unrestrained in their conduct.

Genesis 6:5-6 The LORD saw how great the wickedness of the human race had become on the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of the human heart was only evil all the time. The LORD regretted that he had made human beings on the earth, and his heart was deeply troubled.

One can only surmise how near “Plan C,” that people are today compared to those in the Genesis narrative.

Whatever the many motives are for being a “Plan C” individual, GOD’S attitude toward them is the same, for when they reject GOD he has no choice but to reject them.

Logic and reasoning and argument have no effect on the outcome for there is only one way and that is GOD’S way.

Proverbs 21:2 People may be right in their own eyes, but the LORD examines their heart. What is in the heart is what will condemn one.

You might ask, “Why does GOD get so uptight and reject people because of a little sinning, for most of it doesn’t hurt anyone?”

One of the many answers to that is, Sin separates GOD from man and breaks the fellowship he desires to have with His creatures. Sin blocks GOD from showing HIS love to man and that is an attack upon the very nature of GOD for it doesn’t allow HIM to be GOD.

God is the prime actor and man at best is a responder to GOD’S overtures and when the response is a rebuff then GOD, in order to be GOD, has no alternative but to respond in like kind.

Joshua said it this way; Joshua 24:15 But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your forefathers served beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD."

That was another way of saying chose between “Plan B,” and “Plan C” and let the chips fall where they may.
