A Contract With Creation
“Leaders of all Descriptions have a Sacred Contract with Creation”

“And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth…and God saw that it was good…. And God remembered Noah, and every living thing.… I establish my covenant with you, and with your seed after you; And with every living creature that is with you.… Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee and answer thou me.

From Genesis to Revelation we encounter those many reluctant and imperfect characters that God chose to become leaders for holy tasks. God worked His providence and purpose through each of them and bids you also as a leader in this time to become a partner in building the Kingdom of God. read more »
