I am frustrated.
I am frustrated in that ‘christians’ have not disciplined themselves to ‘search’ the scriptures for they point towards God.
I am a very inquisitive in alot of things pertaining to Theology, The Study of God. With that criteria in my belt, I watch alot of debates across alot of subjects of God,church, and theology. I have recently watched and listened to two debaters and their expertise knowledge of the bible and its words. The knowledge of the scriptures is there in the commentary of the debaters, This speaks admirably for the knowledge of the word. But it is the Wisdom of the Knowledge of the Word that is most important.
I am going to reiterate ‘my message‘ concerning this subject of wisdom of God in the scriptures. So please bear with me. Unlike an ‘Oreo’ cookie the best ‘stuff’ is not in the middle of the bible! It is on the outside(the cookie, itself) that actually is where the Best is, or where the meat is!
I, For to long have heard the ‘messages’ from the pulpit, tv, on the corner, and internet all about the issues in the middle of the cookie, this has not gotten us very far in knowing God and His Purpose. Lord knows the speakers have had alot of weekly admonishments to hand out to everyone week after week. It seems that also that they have used alot of those weekly speeches hundreds of times on the same topic over and over and always spoken to the ‘choir’ to hear. Why?
It seems that the middle is all about the ‘bad’ of mankind, over and over again. Telling us, showing us, and giving us examples of where either ten generations back or just last week we failed to live up to our ‘ideal’ self according to the ‘word’. It’s like reliving a bad dream over and over again, every week.
It’s like ‘they’ or ‘us’ or both are in a rut! I wonder why? “The definition of insanity is repeating the same mistakes over and over again and expecting different results,” Its no wonder ‘Christianity’ is at a standstill with no end in sight!
What ‘Christianity’ should do, is “EAT” the cookie on the outside!!
The ‘cookie’ which in this instance is Genesis 1-2, and Revelation 21-22 and ‘see’ and ‘hear’ what God design for Man was, and just ‘BE’ it!! after all this is what He is wanting for Man. Genesis, was and is the ‘beginning’ of His Eternal Purpose for Us! Well, I wonder what it would look like if it was to continue on from Genesis 2 had, you know what happened?
Revelation 21-22 is the Last scene in the story of God, that ends with the greatest crescendo of a story you have ever read or heard! It is the culmination of everything working together as a Great orchestra of all time put together and performed for all the world to hear.
It is when God is Totally,Absolutely,Irreconcilable, King of Kings, Lord of All, God of All, and We are in Him!
If we only could ‘See’ and ‘Hear’ that in the scriptures?
Oh, Yeah, We can. Take out the bible, dust it off and read Genesis 1-2, The Start of God’s Garden.
Now, Read Revelation 21-22, The Garden in all it’s Glory, God and Man, together again!
Can I get an AMEN!!
