Reversal of Fortune
For if by the one manís [Adamís] offense many died, much more the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abounded to many. (Romans 5:15)
In the 1990 movie Reversal of Fortune starring Glenn Close and Jeremy Irons, socialite Claus von Bulow reversed his fortune and bought his way out of jail when he hire famed Harvard professor Alan Dershowitz to successfully appeal the murder conviction of his wealthy wife. If we ever need to learn how to reverse our fortune, to turn things around, just go to God who is a master on the subject because He has suffered more losses than any of us can bear. God lost Lucifer, His number one, most anointed angel and leader of His praise and worship team. God then lost a third of His angels (Revelation 12:4) when Lucifer fell from heaven (Isaiah 14:12) and took them with him as the newly minted devil.
At the garden of Eden, God lost
Adam and Eve, the man and woman He had created when Adam committed high
treason by eating the forbidden fruit. And because God had given them
dominion over the earth (Genesis 1:26, 28), when He lost them, He lost
control of the earth after the fall of Adam to the devil for 6000 years.
Then when Jesus was crucified, God temporarily lost His only begotten
Son who was willing to die so we all can receive the free gift of salvation.
Yet, in spite of all that, God is no loser because He is the greatest
winner of all.
