Ctrl+Z, says God


In computing, most software use the combination of the control (Ctrl) key along with the “Z” key to undo the last operation. In Genesis 6, God repents for having created man because man had willfully chosen to be sinful and totally and solely evil (wicked) perpetually and the LORD said, “I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.” (Genesis 6:5-7) In other words, God states that he will undo his creation that were upon the face of the earth, which included man, the beasts, creeping things, and the birds of the air, because of man’s perpetually and total wickedness.

Points to ponder:
When we believe and abide in the Lord Jesus Christ, we are made a new creature (2 Corinthians 5:17) and if we walk according to the Spirit of God and not according to the flesh, there is no condemnation (Romans 8:1). But after we have the foreknowledge of the Sacrifice and Salvation of Jesus for our sins, if we continue to walk according to the flesh, willfully choosing to be wicked (evil), then there remains no sacrifice by which we can be saved, but only a fearful expectation of God’s impending judgment (Hebrews 10:26-31). Let us not live our lives in such a manner that it would grieve the heart of God, so much so that he will would have to Ctrl+Z (undo) us, his creation. Let our prayer, today, be “Search me O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: and see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” (Psalm 139:23-24).

Genesis 6:5-7 (KJV)
5 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
6 And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
7 And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.

Psalm 139:23-24 (KJV)
23. Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:
24. And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

Fables Rewritten :: The Charcoal-burner and the Fuller


There was once a Charcoal-burner who lived and worked by himself. A Fuller, however, happened to come and settle in the same neighbourhood; and the Charcoal-burner, having made his acquaintance and finding he was an agreeable sort of fellow, asked him if he would come and share his house. “We shall get to know one another better that way,” he said, “and, beside, our household expenses will be diminished.” The Fuller thanked him, but replied, “I couldn’t think of it, sir: why, everything I take such pains to whiten would be blackened in no time by your charcoal.” (Reference: Aesop’s Fables)

The Bible informs us that light can have no communion with darkness (2 Corinthians 6:14). In other words, holiness can have no communion with sin or that Christ Jesus can have no concord with the devil. We cannot be unequally yoked in our lives. Let us learn to recognize that as the sanctified blood-bought saints of God, we can have nothing to do with evil (sin), for in doing so, we darken our washed lives and place ourselves into the judgment of God, for there remains no more sacrifice for our sins, if we continue to willfully sin, after having received the knowledge of Salvation, found in Christ Jesus alone.(Hebrews 10:26)

Ephesians 5:7-11 (KJV)
Be not ye therefore partakers with them.
For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:
(For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)
10 Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.
11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

2 Corinthians 6:14-17 (KJV)
14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.
