“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” Genesis 1:1
Several weeks ago, Jan and I were blessed to host 70 of our America’s Keswick friends on a bus trip that included a visit to the Creation Museum and the Ark Encounter.
If you have never been there, it needs to be on your bucket list. Ken Ham and his ministry did an awesome job.
At the Creation Museum, I saw this chart posted and couldn’t resist buying it and then I thought, “I need to share this with my Freedom Fighter family.”
The Seven C’s in God’s Eternal Plan – Seven pivotal events from the beginning to the end of time …
Creation – In the beginning – God made a perfect creation.
Corruption – The first man, Adam, disobeyed the Creator. His sin brought death and corruption into the creation.
Catastrophe – Adam’s race became so wicked that God judged the earth with a great catastrophe – a global flood – saving only those on the Ark built by Noah.
Confusion – When Noah’s descendants disobeyed God’s command to fill the earth, God brought confusion on their language, forcing them to spread over the earth.
Christ – The Creator became a man, Jesus Christ, who obeyed God in everything, unlike the first man, Adam.
Cross – Jesus, the Messiah, died on a cross to pay the penalty for mankind’s sin against God. He rose from the dead, providing life for all who trust in Him.
Consummation – One day, at the consummation, the Creator will remake His creation. He will cast out death and the disobedient and dwell eternally with those who trust in Him. Creationmuseum.org
This is a great tool to understand God’s plan of redemption. As Pastor John Hibbard used to say, “Work this plan into your head and you will have it all in a nut shell!”
Last week we celebrated Easter! Today we live in the power of His resurrection poised to be His ambassadors to a lost and dying world that need to hear HIS story! Think about who you might share Jesus with today.
The Son is out! He is risen!!!
Rejoice! Pray! Give thanks!

Think About This: God’s story has a beginning and an end that never ends, and if you’re a child of God, His story is now your biography! Wow! Paul David Tripp
This Week’s Verse to Memorize:
