It’s a process

As with the understanding of the Word of Lord, there is a process, I believe that it is morphing into the identity of God and man, as God intended it to be.

Anyone that has studied the bible and the institution of Church, knows that it has gone thru alot of changing in what we have thought what the bible(God) was telling us. It started right after Jesus’ resurrection and question that everyone was asking “Now what?” or What did all this mean to us or to the world? It wasn’t until Paul came along to put his take on things to say, that It was Jesus’ death on the Cross and His resurrection from the grave that there was a reason for this. But What?

Paul, being singled out by God to chastise him one day while just walking down the road doing what he thought he was supposed to be doing for the Lord, that God points out to him that he wasn’t helping but hurting Him, by way of hurting him, by way hurting his body(the church).

It was when Paul understood this from God, thru the changing of his mind(set) of what really is the ‘Kingdom of God’. We have to stop here and go the verse in Romans 12 verse 2 it says “And be not fashioned according to this world but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” This verse I believe is the key for the christian world to realize that we have not renewed our mind from the fleshly thinking of this world in which we are supposed to be thinking,acting or being of “Christ”.

It is the human ways that we have forever and ever been ‘thinking’,’doing’, ‘believing’ and just ‘being’ in what is supposed to be of the “Kingdom of God’! Our failure of understanding of this has just led us down some bad backroads of christianity that is nowhere near what God has wanted us.

If we were designed to be in the “Kingdom of God”,it is different that the “kingdom of Man”,totally!! Man!! lol There are different rules and regulations for each of these kingdoms, just ask man, he will tell you how you have to act,do, and think on everything! (ha,ha) God’s kingdom is different, you cannot carry over the things of man’s kingdom to God’s Kingdom. Not one thing is transferable. sorry folks. Different all together.

It all starts with Romans 12. 2. The changing of our thinking. We are of God. We cannot think or do the things of this world in God’s world. It will be apparent to us if we renew our minds to the ‘New Man’ of the Kingdom of God that we will not do the things of the old man.

I am ‘seeing’ mankind ‘renewing’ parts of their world here and there around me and even far away from me. Take time to look around you, and see people renewing their minds by doing, thinking, or just ‘being’ different from the world, they are ‘standing out’ from the world in everything they do. They are the ones that are renewing the minds and they are proving what is good and acceptable and perfect will of God!! Amen and Amen.

Identity?

When does something become something?

I was listening to a debate yesterday over a christian theology matter(subject is irrelevant for this topic),when I pondered the identity of when does something become something?( once we knew this we will be able to use this for everything, and I mean everything)

Does something become ‘real’ when I plan to make something in my head? Does it become real when I have started on the project in the early phases of building? What if I make it, then decide to make it differently? What if I just make it wrong that it isn’t what I wanted it to be? Do I have to wait til the project is done, and done right accordingly to me to be what I said it was going to be?

This is confusing! There seems to be more variables after the concept is conceived than just coming from the possibility of the said idea was formed! Do you know what I am saying?

Is it something just because of the possibility of becoming something?

Or is it a possibility just because I have the ability to make the said thing possible?

I have taken this road to weirdness, to come at something from a different angle!

The ‘Trinity’, Father,Son(Jesus), and the Holy Spirit. I believe in it.

I believe that the Trinity was,is,will be forever. period.

So by saying this, We can say that They ‘have been’ forever.

So by saying this, We can say that They ‘are’ now.

So by saying this, We can say that They ‘will be’ forever.

So they by ‘being’ at anytime, could and have been anything they desired.

They could be anything that was within themselves, just by the ‘thought’ of it, without acting on it.

or saying it!

God is unlimited in himself,God is everything in everything!

Jesus also is unlimited in himself, Jesus is everything in everything!

Holy Spirit is unlimited in himself, Holy Spirit is everything in everything!

This could be confusing, for the christian today, let alone for the average joe on the street to understand. But here me out.

God,Jesus,Holy Spirit are within themselves,(they are what they are) But they are also within the other’s identity.

They are three but one.

Now this all by it’s self could be a great study of the word. But it is not where I was laying the foundation.

It is the fact that ‘ALL’ things come from this ‘Paradigm’ of God. It is the reality that from these three identities of God that we have gotten alot of things. (We know this because we have seen history)

We have seen a Universe,planets, stars, earth,moons, man, animals, vegetation, women, son of man, ekklesia, Life,death,Love,suffering, healing, joy, hatred, Heaven, Kingdom of God, creations from God to us. (The list could go on for about a thousand years, so I will stop here)

The picture that I am trying to paint is the one that within God’s essence comes the first of everything, He is the Almighty. It is thru Him that comes everything.

So by this I will say that something becomes something just because God is God.

God’s timing is perfect

We hear it from everyone, right.

Why can’t you get this thing done,now? You don’t have all day? Time is money. You know the deadline is tomorrow.

We are a people in a hurry, a, to do what next? oh yeah, the next thing on our list, and the list goes on, and on,and on, and on. But why?

What is Life? For us humans, it seems that we can’t seem to be still for anything, unless we are in ‘timeout'(so stupid). We can’t just sit still and smell the roses, drink a cup of coffee, talk to a neighbor, talk to our friends, talk to our family.

Mankind doesn’t know how. It has it’s priorities of its own, that is more important to be concerned about. It’s never to be about our family or close friends and their ‘needs’ that we are aware of but it is of our own ‘needs’ that we must fulfill first. It is as if we are the only ones on the planet.

And now their is this other creature that has risen upon us that taken over our lives, the pity card that we are somehow mistreated,un-cared for, and for all intensive purposes just trash, and we want everybody to look at us and do something about it.

What I want to point out to everyone, is that we are the cause of ‘all’ the problems in the world. It is because we have chosen ourselves to be ‘in charge’ of this world because we felt that we could do it better, than the God who actually created us. Mankind is fighting itself over which ‘group’, religious sect, race, people, nation, can ‘do it’ better. It’s like watching some kids on the playground trying to prove themselves to be the ‘one and only’ “Savior’ of the school! This scenario is not just happening in the United States but all over the world. Mankind is fighting amongst itself to try and prove ‘who’ is the one to lead the world. According to history, it has never happened yet, and the odds are that it will never happen.

To the ‘Ekklesia’, I say, because we the ekklesia are only the ‘Ekklesia’ in Name only, we will see this continue as a reoccurring theme in our world. The Ekklesia is not ‘being’ the church. We are playing the ‘church’. We are playing the ‘those people in that building on the corner’, that we never see what they always talk about that they say that they ‘do’ and represent as ‘Christ’.

We, as bodies of Christ, are to be the ‘action’ of Christ in the world, in our neighborhood, on a daily basis,day after day,consistent with our message to the world. It is not the model of ‘Church’ building that is getting the message across to the world, it has failed in it’s message, it is when we as an example of who Christ is and does that will make the difference in the world. It will be that one raindrop in the water that makes that first ripple that spreads the ‘good news’, it will continue with the next raindrop, and the next raindrop, and the next raindrop and next the whole world will be filled with the Glory of the Lord in his Holy and everlasting water.

But as I started with, it is in God’s own timing as to how,when,where, and with who it starts with.

This is why God’s timing is perfect!

Stay vigilant o Ekklesia!
