The New Desire of Ages

           Along with many of you, I began my journey through the New Desire of Ages with New King James Version quotations. I am already being incredibly blessed by inspired insights such as—

o        “By coming to dwell with us, Jesus was to reveal God both to men and to angels. He was the Word of God- God’s thoughts made audible.” P. 11

o        “Our little world is the lesson book of the universe.” P. 11

o        “[Jesus] chose to give back the scepter into the Father’s hands, and to step down from the throne of the universe, that He might bring light to the benighted, and life to the perishing.” P. 14

o        “Christ was treated as we deserve, that we might be treated as He deserves. He was condemned for our sins, in which He had no share, that we might be justified by His righteousness, in which we had no share. He suffered the death that was ours, that we might receive the life which was His: ‘By His stripes we are healed.’” P. 16-17

o        “The earth itself, the very field Satan claims as his, is to be not only ransomed but exalted. Our little world, under the curse of sin the one dark blot in His glorious creation, will be honored above all other worlds in the universe of God….And through endless ages as the redeemed walk in the light of the Lord, they will praise Him for His unspeakable gift- Immanuel, “God with us.” P. 18
