God’s Presence is Essential! — Part 1 of 2

Fellowship Restored

“From one man He has made every nationality to live over the whole earth…  He did this so they might seek God, and perhaps they might reach out and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us.  (Acts17:26, 27 HCSB)

All humanity—every nation, tribe and tongue—descends from a “first couple,” Adam and Eve, the progenitors of all mankind. 

One of the most outlandish, anti-biblical hoaxes foisted on the modern world is the supposedly enlightened, “scientific” proposition that humankind is comprised of several “races.” Most adherents of such a belief system have built their notions on the intellectually bankrupt, long-ago disproven “theory of evolution.” Indeed, that dark deception, which is based on erroneous sense-knowledge, is refuted in the very first pages of God’s Word, the Holy Bible; for we are all “Adamites”—of one blood, descendants of Adam and Eve. 

No, there isn’t a simian ancestor in our “family tree.” And the fantasy that humanity is ascending toward a more perfected state of being through a process of “natural selection”—or divinely-guided spiritual evolution—is simply a foolish, modern-day fairy tale.

To discover the truth of our origins, all one needs to do is crack open a Bible and read the first few chapters of the Book of Genesis, the first book of the Holy Scriptures. In those pages, our Maker, Yahweh, reveals that He himself made our first ancestors—Adam from the dust of the earth and Eve from one of Adam’s ribs.

Furthermore, the first man an woman were exquisitely crafted by Yahweh; made in his “image and likeness.” Indeed, the Most High God breathed his very life, his supernatural presence, into Adam’s nostrils.

And what was Yahweh’s lofty purpose in making them? First and foremost, it was so that they would commune with him—to remain in intimate fellowship with their Maker. And that is what they did—until Adam and Eve fell into sin by disobeying God.

From that day onward, the sweet, intimate fellowship that they and their Creator had enjoyed was broken. Indeed, a dark spiritual pall came over Adam and Eve, as well as the Garden of Eden where they lived, and all creation. 

But the Good News is that Jesus Christ, our risen Savior and Lord, came to this earth to restore the fellowship that was broken by sin in the Garden of Eden. He has redeemed us by his blood through his willing sacrifice on the cross of Calvary. And if we will receive the free grace-gift of salvation—the completed work he accomplished by dying in our place for our sins—we can enter into what the Bible calls “newness of life”—and a restored fellowship with our Maker.

No matter how humble your circumstances or how messed up your life may be, God has made a way for you to fellowship with him.


If you earnestly desire to know the One who made you and be able to hear his voice, which will open up the opportunity to fellowship with him, you need to become part of God’s family. To do so, He has made it quite simple: first, you must begin by wholeheartedly believing and trusting in the Lord and his son, Jesus Christ.

You don’t need to “get your act together” or clean yourself up. He will accept you just as you are. But you must come to him humbly and:

  • repent from your sins (that is, to not only be sorry for them but also turn from your sinful ways)
  • be willing to trust in and rely upon him and be obedient to his Word
  • pray (speak) from your heart to the Lord, telling him that you accept his son, Jesus Christ, as your personal “Good Shepard,” thereby making him Lord of your life

If you are willing to take those steps in faith, the Bible promises that you will be saved—that is,  be “born again” and adopted into God’s family. 

To those who do so, we offer our hearty “Congratulations!”  Welcome into the family!!

After taking those all-important steps of faith, please take the time to contact Dr. Peter at harvest.equippers@protonmail.com. We have a free gift waiting for you.


Also, be sure to “stay tuned” for Part 2 of “God’s Presence is Essential!”

Until the next time, walk in the Spirit… and be a blessing!

Dr. Peter
