Then the LORD God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.
Dust from the surface of the ground began to do things visible like dust in the wind. All we are are dust in the wind, except for the spirit of God and the consciousness to try. But why?
The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.” (1 John 2:15, 17)
There is no accountability for the life of an animal or that of a tree. In of itself we are all of the same. To live and die common nature. With no accusations, remorse, regret or expectations. While alive we lives and when it dies it is gone without remorse. The work of our hands is devoured by moth and rust in the treasure of this life.
Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
5The 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. 6The Lord regretted that he had made human beings on the earth, and his heart was deeply troubled. 7So the Lord said, “I will wipe from the face of the earth the human race I have created—and with them the animals, the birds and the creatures that move along the ground—for I regret that I have made them.” 8But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord.
Something dreadfully wrong happens between the day we were created to the day we die that caused God to regret the work of His hands. The evil and the good cohabiting together in the life of a man. So God puked at the potters wheel for someone better. God became a man because the spirit of a man belongs to God.
“Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.”
Hi, may God bless the works of our hands as it is the evidence of our souls. Tried by a consuming fire and only what is done for God will last.
‘Obey your spiritual leaders, and do what they say. Their work is to watch over your souls, and they are accountable to God. Give them reason to do this with joy and not with sorrow. That would certainly not be for your benefit.’
‘And this is the message I proclaim—that the day is coming when God, through Christ Jesus, will judge everyone’s secret life.’
