02/15/2018: ANATOMY 101

In the beginning God:
            Decided that His Creation would need to have TWO EYES so that they could see in all directions. Along with the two eyes we have what is called PERIPHREAL VIEWING, which means we can see to our sides even while we are looking forward. We can see above, below and side ways all at once. To prevent sameness in all God in His infinite wisdom decided to give color to those eyes, various colors. The eyes are direct connection with the brain. We also can read and what we read makes notes in our brains. GOD wrote a Love Letter to His Creation and He wants that we READ IT with all our fervor that we might come to KNOW HIM INTIMATELY! With our eyes we can also see the wonders of God all around us. Use those eyes to see GOD.
            Spiritual eyes see things that the normal eyes can’t, they also (I think) have no color to them, but are all one tint. GOD was so thoughtful in all things needed, up to and including spiritual matters.
            God thought, “ Man needs to enjoy the aroma of the various flowers in My garden,” so He invented NOSES. With them we also can identify SIN because it has a nasty odor in the NOSTRILS OF GOD. Someone once said: “we often make food decisions by how something smells.” Have you ever smelt chitlins cooking?????? I did, and I aint interested in eating them. If each time a sinful thought were to enter in the minds of Christians and they blew their noses, sin would leave. Would that not be great?
            God SPOKE the world into existence and so with that in mind He figured that in order for His creation to hear Him Speak they would have to have EARS so God placed TWO EARS, one on each side of the head. This way we can hear around us in each direction. NO EXCUSE!!!! GOD thought that if we listened twice as much as we speak we would gain knowledge and wisdom, so He gave us two ears and one mouth. If we listen closely we would be able to hear GOD speak to us of His plans, but we have to hush and pay close attention, focusing on Him and His Kingdom.
            GOD gave us a MOUTH to eat, drink and speak by. It was His plan that we speak of His Love and Compassion for His Creation. We can communicate with the Lord through our mouth, our heart, and our thoughts. What we say can make or break people, can crush dreams, can disrupt programs, can condemn futures, and speak of sins past. What we say can destroy lives. Scripture says that [DEATH AND LIFE ARE IN THE POWER OF THE TONGUE]. (Prov. 18:21). (James 3:6) And the tongue is a fire, the very world of iniquity; the tongue is set among our members as that which defiles the entire body, and sets on fire the course of our life, and is set on fire by hell.  
            We were given TWO ARMS to use in giving HUGS to those who need comfort, to pull one another up when they are down, to carry burdens; whether our own or another’s.
            1 Corinthians 6:15 Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ?
            1 Corinthians 6:19 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from GOD, and that you are not your own? 20 For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify GOD IN YOUR BODY.
            FINALY: GOD gave each of His creation a BRAIN to use for daily living and encouraging others. To think, to meditate, to ponder, to make decisions and so on.
            1 Corinthians 2:13 which things we also speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining spiritual thoughts with spiritual words.
            Philippians 4:8 Finally, Brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, let your mind dwell on these things.
            You have read and now you know that You are not your own and that you have been bought with a Price. Live your life as a Sanctuary for the Lord.
Heavenly Father, I ask that You my Lord
Reveal unto me Your thoughts and Your
Plans for my life. Grant me strength to
Endure and move forward for You.
I ask this in the Name of Jesus Christ.
