Before time began - what a mind blowing concept, can you ever imagine what it was like before time in a place where time does not exist, but a continual. It appears time is an element of progression for our material world, to gauge what we do on this earth. Like a time line drawn on a program that runs until complete, we go through this lifetime as a brief, but crucial set of behaviors and responses that establish our eternal destination and placement in the life to come.

2 Tim 1:9 -
9 who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began,
We find that it is according to His grace (ability) freely given to us in Christ Jesus
that the calling and giftings were put into effect - when - before time began.

So we have already in place, before we were born on this earth, the provision to be all that He intended for us to be. Now, at this time, it has been revealed to us in the time zone of our journey on earth, at a specific point on the time line in our history, Jesus entered this world into the time-frame, from eternity to redeem mankind and place us into the intention that was put into effect in the mind of God from eternity, before this time began.

And He has abolished death which in time will effect us all on earth and now He has brought life and immortality to light through the Gospel.
The Gospel means good news for us who make the connection to the new life, through the process of the new birth which is for here and now, in our time on earth. This is our redemption, when we believed in what Jesus had done for us. Our life can be turned around from a death existence, without His true ability and the true identity, into the perfect plan. We find that there is more to life than just running through this time line of opportunities searching for the ultimate experience, we can find a true expression of our identity in our pursuit for meaning and happiness.

Ephesians 2:10 10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.
Good works flow out of a connection to eternity, in the plan that is a perfect fit for our individuality, we can step into the new lifestyle of good works that originate from the grace that we receive.

The Master Blueprint was made and it is a perfect plan coming from the mind of God.
Ephesians 4:22-24 -
22 that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts,
23 and be renewed in the spirit of your mind,
24 and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.
Our mind is a brilliant instrument, capable of processing new insights of the truth and by the spirit we can connect to the divine purposes of God, where eternal secrets are kept for those who search for the higher life of true righteousness and holiness.
With the ability to read and see the perfect design from above, we can renew our minds to this understanding and replace anything that does not line up with the blueprint from heaven. Our former backward life of habit is programmed into our thinking by the background of inheritance and then formed into our mind-set from the environment, which are influences of dark imaginations of deceitful lusts that rob us from the perfect plan.
The deceitfulness is, when set behaviors are triggered under certain conditions, they give us a response that is subconscious and becomes a deformed part of our personalities in these habits.

Now the new birth is required to give us an opportunity to rewrite who we were meant to be in Him
- then the enlightenment of truth and the promises in His Word will ignite the desires from God, which will direct us towards the workmanship of the good works that are created in Christ Jesus from within.

The enemy to our true destiny will try to take advantage of our fallen weaknesses to twist us in the old habits of thinking, like a stealth weapon at work against the best made plan.
When you really see and receive the light and knowledge of the truth, you will not be satisfied with any other plan that leads us into the entrapment of wrong thinking and desires.
1 John 3:8,9 -
8 He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.
9 Whoever has been born of God does not sin, for His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God.
We see that wrong thinking and behaviour is from the evil one and that behaviour is deceitful as lust can never satisfy us, so Jesus had to come to destroy those works.
We now need to allow the rewriting of our minds, where our thinking and behaviour is born from above.

NOW is the time to receive the good works for your life - that originated from the perfect design - before time began.
