GOOD NEWS: Paradise so close...under the nose!

I suppose many of you who have been in the academe are familiar with the scholarly work of the 17th century English poet & scholar, John Milton, who wrote the famous literary work entitled, “PARADISE LOST”.


At first, my naive mind thought that Paradise really got lost. But thank Good Grace, a new realization came clearing off the scales that blurred my vision - that it wasn't Paradise that got lost. For, Paradise never got lost and never will it get lost. As it was in the beginning, so IT IS and WILL EVER BE forever.


What got lost though was my “old & baser” self who once yielded to the tricky tempter - the archenemy of Truth, the prince of the power of darkness in the air that sowed the “seeds” of worldly “pride of life, lust of the eyes, and lust of the flesh”.


Today, the GOOD NEWS is: The enlightened contemporary mind knows better that more than a millennium and a half long before John Milton's 17th century PARADISE LOST, the veil of the temple in Jerusalem was already torn signifying the breaking down of the barrier that separated the earthly from the Heavenly, or for that matter, the fallen man from the Holy, Righteous & Glorious God!…All because of the ONCE AND FOR ALL Supreme Sacrifice of the Lamb of God – Christ Jesus, The WORD INCARNATE - whose precious blood cleansed the iniquities of the BELIEVING humankind.


Contemporary Believers, ARISE!...look and see in the “inside out” through the eyes of Faith, PARADISE SO CLOSE RIGHT UNDER THE NOSE!
