There is NO microwaved Plan of Salvation

Deuteronomy 32:46-47
Moses said ……Set your hearts unto all the words which I testify among you this day, which ye shall command your children to observe to do, all the words of this law.  For it is not a vain thing for you; because it is your life: and through this thing ye shall prolong your days in the land, whither ye go over Jordan to possess it.

After Moses got all fueled up in the Mount, he came down to teach God’s people who so desperately needed direction.  But instead of finding them as anxious students preparing for his return, unfortunately he found impatient do-it-yourselfers.  A temporary fix won’t take long to get and it won’t last long once you have it, but a message from the Mount is worth the wait!  It takes perseverance to build a house on a rock, but it will outlast the blowing of troublesome winds of life and it will stand strong against the thunderous lightening of the enemy’s punches.  There is no microwaved Plan of Salvation.  It wasn’t thought of last minute– there was no improvising!  It cost the Lord everything and he didn’t fall short on paying the full price for the redemption of our sins. Shouldn’t we be willing to do everything that he said that it would take to receive it and apply it to our lives?  God died for me to have it, I want it!  I don’t want to try to alter it now when it’s worked all of this time the way that it was given to the church of the book of Acts in the New Testament.  Marvel not that I said unto thee, ye must be born again!  Matthew 7:26 / John 3:7
