As I began to study the Word of God, more in depth; The typical questions came to mind, like… Why are we here? Why am I here? Who am I? Who is God? Who are you? Where is the Kingdom of God and why did Christ die for our sins? For those who do not believe that sin exists; In this matter… And forever more; Sin is referred to as unhealthy behavour, so please do continue reading on: Perhaps you may learn something…
The more I study, the more I want to know. The more I want to know, the more I understand. The more I understand, the more I began to realize… the less, I truly know. And it is here in my “not knowing” that God began to reveal Himself to me: “For less of me, means more of Him.”
I have, humbly, come to the place where I can, earnestly, hear a word from God; and in doing so… I have learned that the Holy Spirit knows the accurate answers and being that His Word is the final authority, this began my studies. For the Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. 1Corin 2:10
In this place of stillness, it is completely natural to have questions—especially when you’ve just begun a relationship with the Father, having accepted Jesus as your Lord & Savior. But to know God, is something “super natural” as one must recognize His voice, you are more opt to want to listen. Not just to seek His face, but to learn of his ways… So, as I begin to meditate upon His precepts, the Holy Spirit began to answer my concerns. For the bible clearly states, “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” Mat 7:7
To understand, that which is being said; the knowledge therein the questions that I had asked, can only be attained by having a personal relationship with the Father. I now understand that there is no other creator than God and it is He that made all that there is. So, why were we created? And what is man that God would concern himself with thee? For are we not just a mist and then we are gone?!
I am certain that many have asked these very same questions, but before I share with you what the Lord has impressed upon my heart, may I also explain that the Kingdom of Heaven is attained; First, by one’s establishing in one’s mind the consciousness of the Truth; Second, by one’s adjusting one’s outer life to the Truth. And what is the Truth, you may ask? [Keep reading]
It is a wonder why Jesus spoke in parables, as so to discern the Holy Spirit, amongst non-believers. But for the sake of you being here, I am going to relay to you, in modern terms, as much as possible… but truly these things can only be greater understood, by walking in the spirit of God. For those of you who are already there and discerning of these things, please bare with me; as so to educate those who are not. For in Christ, is hidden all of the treasures of wisdom and knowledge (Colossians 2:3) and the secrets of our heart (Psalms 44:21).
Furthermore, The Kingdom of Heaven is the orderly adjustment of divine ideas in man’s body and in order to find this Kingdom; man must become conscious of divinity and its realm of divine ideas. One must be willing to adjust his thoughts to the divine standard; For Heaven is not confined to man’s consciousness. It is everywhere present, but how would you know this to be, if you don’t know who you are and/or whose you are?
To be more specific, creation presupposes a creator. The creator is God… God creates by the power of His word, and the word contains character. (For in the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:1) So, man’s part in the creative process, is to express the divine ideas, of God. Therefore, man is made out of God’s expression…
So, how did we get here? [Through God's expression.] And why are where? [To manifest God's expression.] As if to say, “God is the owner of all things created, He elected man to be the CEO.” Just as a father would elect his son to run his company; God has elected you to be the master of this earth! But one thing I know for sure… “If man were to stop seeking to find why they are here and they genuinely begin to seek the Father, who created them; God will not only reveal “Himself” to you, but His promise to you would also be made manifest.”
For every man accomplishes his great work of bringing things into manifestation by using the power of the word; he speaks the word audibly, or to himself, or in thought. This is why we must be careful what we say, and may we also learn how to bring our thoughts under subjection; Because words manifest.
Every man forms his own world, yet it is a privilege “to cease” using all untrue words and to use only the Word of God. By this He will bring into manifestation the Kingdom of God upon earth. Why? So that we may live forever. Upon creation, man was never intended to die. Therefore, the universe and man are potentially perfect.
Coming into this “great” understanding; where God founded the earth and established the heavens, formed
man and breathed into him the breath of life; redeemed man from the curse of the law, by giving His only begotten son to die for our sins, so that we may live and have life more abundantly… Is this so hard for you to fathom? Even I wonder, “what is there in man that entitles him to so much adoration?” Why has God confirmed him with such honor? Why has God placed man over the works of his hands? Why has He made so many arrangements for man’s comfort? Why has he done so much to save him? Yet He gave His only begotten son?! And all we do is question?! Why, all of these, why’s?? And then, Christ dies?! So that “I” may live?!
I began to pray; “Dear Lord, your ways are not our ways, please help us to understand your will, not my will… but your will be done; on earth, as it is in heaven…” And this is the revelation that fell upon me:
When I think of my brothers and sisters; their children, which are my nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great nephews; my mother and father, who gave birth to us all; My aunts and uncles, and their kids, who now have children; my cousins and their children, who also have kids; and my great-grandmother, my grandmother and grandfather(s); and their children’s children… I have lived to see 6 generations alive and I can justifiably attest, for the ones who have passed on; how much they would love to see that ALL of their children’s lives, be lived with such of an abundance that they want for, absolutely, nothing.
The mother’s in my family have prayed for one thing and that is that their children be made well, within their soul, and pleasing before God’s sight. I can imagine them being stupendously happy for those of us who also came thereafter; we love each other. Every single last one of us, ” We love our family!”
And then as my mind visits every face that I have met, in the world, and even those that I have not; I can truly say that I pray for all of their hearts to be filled with joy and may no hurt, harm, or danger come upon them… For I truly have an abundant love for the whole of humanity. Both friend, foe and onlookers alike: I pray that ALL will arise, to live, to their higher good.
Then I began to encounter the sun that arises every morning, along with the moon that brightens the sky at night; and to the tree that is planted to give me shade, and to the fruit of the earth; so that I may never go hungry. It is a wonder, that God has created these things for me. And especially, you… I am so VERY grateful, yet some are still stupefied?! For isn’t it quite obvious who God is? Who I am? Who you are? Why we are here? And why Christ died, for our sins? Well… let me let you in on a little secret, in the event that you still haven’t figured it out.
I am here, so that you may live. You are here, so that I may live. Christ died so that we may ALL live. Now isn’t it only natural that you would want to see your son’s sons and their sons and their daughter’s live? If your answer is yes, then please join me in sharing the goodness of Jesus Christ, with the world, for this is the reason why you are here. “So, that you may LIVE!” And have life more abundantly.
Most parents work very hard so that there kids will have a sense of security, “Is it so hard to see that Christ, lived such a life of divinity, so that when He died; We may also be secure in our statutes?” We are sons and daughters of the God Almighty!!
When you begin to see yourself, for who you are; As the perfect offspring of God and divinity, proclaims whose you are, then you will begin to express perfection. If you begin to hold thoughts of your self, which is sinful; then you begin to view the universe as imperfect, expressing untrue ideas that bring into manifestation that of discord, things that are not like Christ, and you become more of who you are not.
May you always remember why Christ died for you; For you and those that come after you. It doesn’t take much spiritual understanding to know that all of this was done based on God’s expression of Love, for you. From a Father, to His children… It’s not to far-fetched, unless you don’t consider yourself as God’s creation. And even then, just like a father would mold his child until that child comes into the full maturation of understanding… God is waiting for you to take your rightful place beside Him. He has given you the power of a sound mind and His Word is so powerful, that the bible describes it as a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path. “We must study to show thine self approved!”
For man is the epitome of all that exists, even to the Spirit of God, which is inspired in him. But man is a free agent. He can open his mind to the divine intelligence, that I speak of here, and know the creative law, or he can declare his independence and work out his character through blind experimentation.
It may be hard for you to comprehend, depending on your level of integrity; But considering that we were all made in the likeness of God… We will all [at one time or another] thirst and hunger after His righteousness and glory. Like a child, who has lost his way, searching for the return of his Father; “Oh, just to be held in his arms once again…” All the ends of the earth will remember and turn to the LORD, and all the families of the nations will bow down before him. Psalm 22:27 This is the Truth: “Now live!”
NOTE TO SELF: “Until you find something to die for you have not lived.”
