Our Pillar of Salt


Our Pillar of Salt

From the time of the Garden of Eden, mankind has continued to inherit a sinful nature. Scripture shows us in Genesis 1:26 that ADAM was created in the ‘image and likeness’ of God. Genesis 5:3 goes on to show us that Adam had a son in his (Adam’s) image and likeness. We descend from the lineage of Adam.

The sinful nature passed down from Adam to us today (and the one which we continue to procreate), can be likened to a car engine which drives a car in a certain way. Despite modifications being made to the engine, the car still moves the same way. The only way to drive that car differently would be to replace the engine completely.

It is little wonder then that mankind has survived for centuries but the world is no better morally than it was from the time of fallen Adam. Irrespective of culture, race or government, the nature of mankind continues to seek its own desires, not caring what others think or feel. Human (Adam) nature drives mankind in its quest for success.

[1]

These creatures were given to the priest in the temple and he duly slaughtered them and sprinkled their blood on the altar. This ceremony then absolved the people who brought the lambs/pigeons, from their disobedience to God.

 Moses and the Red Sea

 

And the Lord said unto Moses, Wherefore criest thou unto me? Speak unto the children of Israel that they go forward:

 But lift thou up thy rod, and stretch out thine hand over the sea, and divide it: and the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea.

How often do we see ourselves on what seems like a roller coaster ride in our walk with God in this life?

One moment, we are singing the praises of our God and next we are in a state of depression over our circumstances.

Our prayers seem to consist of always crying out to Our Father to release us from one situation or another. We are always petioning Him for money to extricate us from our financial plight, extrication from our family problems, our employment, social and political issues; the list is endless.
