The God Of The Second Chance
The Bible says that we were all born in sin and shaped in iniquity, this is our inheritance from the original parents Adam and Eve.
Psa 51:5 Indeed, in iniquity I was brought forth;
in sin my mother conceived me.
People have not got a problem understanding about inheritance when it come to wealth, so for instance a millionaire has a child, that child has done nothing towards developing that wealth. However the moment that child is born, it is in a privileged position. If that child’s parents died, they would inherit the wealth. Any offspring that child has would also inherit the wealth.
People have not got a problem understanding inheritance in that context, however when you talk about inheritance in the context of sin, all of a sudden people have got an issue with it. So you have people that say “that a baby is innocent and has no sin”, in one sense they are right, but they are also wrong at the same time. That baby is innocent with regards to its individual actions, but it is still born in sin through inheritance.
This is why if you leave that baby to grow up, it will be nature gravitate to the things that are wrong. You don’t have to show a child how to do wrong things but you do have to show them have to do the right things.
Sin is missing the mark or not meeting God’s standard, however after man fell in the garden, God had to re-establish his standard, which would usher in his Kingdom environment once again and this is why he used the nation of Israel as a means of doing that.
So he called Abraham (or Abram at the time) out, gave him the promise that through his seed the world would be blessed (Genesis 12:3)
Then he establish Isaac as the son of promised (Genesis 17:15-19)
Finally God institutes the Nation and Israel through Jacob (Genesis 32:28)
Now that God had done this, there was now a means of separating a people that followed him and his standard, from the rest of mankind. He did this by giving them his law and the 613 precepts included. However this was just to point out the fact they God’s ways are much higher than our ways, and only God would be able to allow us to meet his standard, by his grace. So the Law was only there to point to Christ, the King of the Kingdom:
Gal 3:24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.
Gal 3:25 But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.
Once Christ came, he fulfilled the Law and the prophets and now he ushered in his kingdom:
Luk 16:16 The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it
God himself was going to show us how to live and he himself was going to redeem us and put us back into right relationship with him.
God himself was going to remove that inheritance of sin and give us a new citizenship
God himself was going to give us a second chance!
Joh 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Joh 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God.
Joh 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
Joh 1:10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
Joh 1:11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
Joh 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
Joh 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
Parallel Business Principles
Many people join business opportunities because they are not happy with their financial situation and they want to change it. They see opportunities as a second chance to turn things around for themselves.
This is a very real opportunity to do that, however there is work to be done in order for that to happen. There are things that need to be put in place and development that needs to be established along the way.
In Reliv the system is in place to show people how to build, but people still have to commit to it or else nothing will happen. It is going to take obedience and work to build a Reliv business, but in building it, people are giving their finances a second chance and the beauty is, in building their Reliv people are also providing a second chance to people in their health also.
