What Came First – the Chicken or the Egg?

“God commanded every living thing to develop ‘after its kind,’ but man questions, ‘what came first, the chicken or the egg?’ This is a wrongly framed question because neither came first. God came first, understanding this we then may come to the fountain of truth, to God’s answer of the chicken and the egg. Fallen man begins his quest, not at the beginning, but in midstream as his question excludes God when framing his questions while God includes man when framing His answers. Genesis chapter one, verses 11-12, 20-21 shows us that God made the chicken – then the egg, the herb – then the seed, the tree – then the fruit, the whale – then the calf, The Man – then the Woman – and thereafter their offspring.” ~LMJ~

The Upwards Performance of God Within

Being confident of this very thing, that he {God} which hath begun a good work in you will perform it {perfect it} until the day of Jesus Christ– Philippians 1:6. The good work in you is that God has already placed the spiritual seed of Christ in you. The word perform means that the good work that God began, the work of placing Christ within, will eventually bring the believers into perfection and full maturity which will occur when Christ returns for us.” ~LMJ~

The Perpetual Manuscript of Eternity and Its Fruit

“Folks so very often dispute and refute the words of life, never allowing the words in the perpetual manuscript of eternity to take root and spring to life in the fruitful ground of their hearts, But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit– Matthew 13:23. Oh what a blessing it is to really begin enjoying the fruitful Word of God that will produce eternal fruit that we may share not only with other believers, but with our heavenly Father, divine fruits such as love, joy, and peace. This is the reward that we have, as we are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience– Luke 8:15. To bring forth fruit with patience is to enjoy the benefits of the spiritual fruit for all eternity, because the Word of God liveth and abideth for ever- I Peter 1:23.” ~LMJ~
