What if the Bible ended in Genesis 3? In Genesis 3 we witness the fall of man. And in the punishment of Adam, God reveal the ultimate punishment of death. Adam’s heart must’ve just broke. You are telling me, this all is going to come to an end? Shades of Ecclesiastes 12:7 come to mind. As does Romans 6:23, where it tells us the wages of sin is death. Adam’s, Eve’s, and our choice of sin = the end result is death.
What if the Bible ended there? What if that was the end of our story? Returning to dust. Because there are many in this world that believe that. That this life is all there is, and when it is over, it is over.
But it’s not the end. Because of our Redeemer, we can have victory over death.
Let’s take a journey to the story of the Lost Son, returning to his Father. Maybe you missed the subtle phrases at the end of the reunion, because I did. Look at the final verse we read in that story…Luke 15:24.
How does the Father describe the son? DEAD. But when he came back, he was ALIVE AGAIN. From death to life.
Please don’t let this be the end of your story. Because, let me just share with you, that if you have not allowed the Redeemer Jesus to save you, you are dead in your sins…and that is where you will remain for eternity…
BUT…if you trust in Jesus Christ and His finished work on the cross, death is not the end! It is just like in Luke 15 with the Father and his lost son…it will be a celebration in heaven…because you have come home.
