"This is the Lord's doing; it is marvelous in our eyes". Psalm 118:23

  God has a plan! It can't be thwarted by the enemy! It can't be frustrated by human error! It can't be obstructed by passing along mis-information!

  The garden of eden was the scene of its unfolding when God said to Satan that he would be utterly crushed. (Gen.3:15) Generations elapsed with the devil playing havoc with the human race.Messianic predictions were repeatedly made concerning the Christ and His coming!

  Finally in the little community of Bethelhem the plan began to unfold. A baby was born in a stable because there was no room in the inn,The child grew to manhood exemplifying what God was all about! As He moved about preaching the message of redemption a host of enemies conspired against Him! Ultimately they convinced the Romans to crucify Him. As they laid Him in the tomb Satan was convinced that he had won the battle.

  For three days hell had a jubilee but God's plan was not thwarted! On that glorious third day death was conquered and Jesus came forth from the grave! God's plan was completed for Jesus made a way of escape. He carries the keys of death, hell and the grave! He declared, "Because I live, ye too shall live also"!

It is the Lord's doing; it is marvelous in our eyes.

In Jesus',
