Mankind

Singular or plural?

This choice of usage for anything is key to how you understand the story when you use a singular storyline verses a plural storyline.

Maybe, just maybe, we have used the wrong pronoun of the story of Adam and Eve, it is as always, changes any story.

If we could use the plural pronoun, Mankind as the storyline of the world, that needs to be the focus on all things pertaining to the downfall of itself, and the picking itself up and making itself right in God’s design. It is ‘all of mankind’ that is in need to be fixed.

If our focus is that of pinpointing of ‘singleness’ of the world, then this will expand on just the singleness exponential with everyone, which will get its work over of everyone. This could go on forever for everyone. This is shed light on this very issue, in some ministries, which has succumbed alot of people scared and led a stray of the real issue at hand.

It is when we change this outlook of where the issue is that it becomes a  piece of the puzzle that then changes the storyline that we can see the middle and end of the story all fit together.

It is all of mankind that is being focus on, for it is the story of itself that needs to be rescued. It has created a kingdom without their God, It is reiterated many times thru the new testament that God thru the ‘Messiah’ is saving itself from itself, by doing away with the human ‘nature’ , and replacing it with God’s nature and ‘His Kingdom’.

This use of singleness, is absent in the telling of the story of the God’s people. But yet, the plural use of God’s people  are over and over used, it is this that we haven’t notice in the story of His Kingdom.

Go back and look at the various storylines in the old testament that it is a single person that is represented of his people(God’s), it was never the person’s following, but it was God’s people, thru this journey of whatever mess that the people  got into, without realizing that if God’s plan was followed that they would reach their goal.

God’s desire is to work and use ‘people’ in away with making a statement using just a select group to uphold them as God’s people, as the greatest example of Him to the world.

It is here that we are. To be His people being in His Kingdom, being different that our kingdom, to shine and be the light to all.

It is here that we have problems understanding, We have understood this as to shine in our world to influence the others, but No, it is shining in God’s Kingdom, that it will have it’s greatest effect of ‘seeing’ God and His government and rule of mankind and His Kingdom.

Matthew 6. 9-10

Just thinking

This is just some out-loud thinking on my part. Some of this is either just a statement, or could be a Question.

Is there a difference in ‘Rest’ and ‘Sabbath’, if there is what is it?

God Rested.

Sabbath is Holy.(7th day,Symbolic of Holiness)

Exodus 23.11 Every 7th year of your field was to be laid baron.(rest)

Original rest-Garden of Eden! Everything mentioned in the bible has to use this as foundation of the meaning of REST!

God rested, man had nothing to rest from, yet!

Understanding what this picture of God resting from His Work, which was by the way, creating US, His Kingdom, and Himself as the King of this said Kingdom.

If we use this picture of this ‘Eden’, God, us, his creation in communion with His world, living in God’s Kingdom with God.

We then Know what true Rest is.

So we should know that after this picture, it changed.

but this is the model of “REST”.

So if God being God that He is, wants to get this picture back.

How does He go about doing this?

Think about it.

He starts by just having  a specific place, in a specific building, with a specific people.

This specific place is the Holy of Holies, only one person, can be with God,in this spot, a HIGH Priest.

sounds kinda very minimalist to me, but whatever. God knows what he is doing.

Now this one spot, is in this one building, in this one town. Now the world wasn’t that big yet, but man I have to travel all across region to come be with my God? on one certain day!

and oh yeah, and I have to be apart of the selected ‘people’ that God designated that had this God!

Wow, this is really specific,God.

Why are you going to the whole world as your domain to just one little spot, one little building, and just one people?

Think about it.

Now the issue is not that the ‘people’,place,and building didn’t work out, it was that they failed in ‘seeing’ what God was trying to go back to His first Rest Picture. in a way that started slow but spread to the whole people!

Their failure is their ‘worshiping’ other gods, none of whom were the one that created and designed their ‘rest’!

Now our official terminology of the word Sabbath is a day of religious observance and abstinence from work, kept by Jews from Friday evening to Saturday evening, and by most Christians on Sunday. 

Now it seems maybe,just maybe we are short changing ourselves as believers, and God that we do not observe ‘Rest’ as ALL the time!

The relishing and living in God’s presence in the world,as our King, and His Kingdom would be the ‘same’ picture that we started with.

The Garden of Eden.

Think about it.
