Idols

They have been around ever since man has been alive.

In fact, we made ourselves one.

Man has needed to give glory to something to which it never was meant to be given. If I was to give a full list of things that we have given Idol status we would need a full day to write them down. But let’s just list a few to understand where we are going.

There is always the big three that is always mentioned in conversations: Money,Power and Sex. Now let first set the stage with some context for this, the paramaters for this is for our context, this is for the United States. The stage will be different for other places, or other area’s of the world for various reasons.

Now I think that we could if we wanted to really delve into the very deep perspective on how and why we got to these things, but we will keep it shallow for now. If we use just the three that have been mentioned, We must understand that where we are coming from using these three.

All these are coming from the perspective of humanness, where do these things to survive in our human world, without them we would be irrelevant. So we would believe. These are the things that we believe that without them there is no existence. For this is all we can see to do to survive.

Mankind is looking within it’s self to solve the paradigm of man in charge. It was when adam and eve decided to go out on their own to be the King and Queen of their own realm, that we set the stage for all these issues. Our failure to see that mankind is still considered ‘good’ in God’s eyes we are still flawed. God made us this way, for a reason. We were to realize that we needed Him, to be whole. To be relevant to be in his Kingdom, we have to be a citizen of the Kingdom itself, one of the realm, the paradigm.

The story of the Garden of Eden in the scriptures was the storyline of all the issues that we are talking about today. It seems that for the most part, what is always talked about in this storyline is the last part of the story, until recently that some people have been bringing up the first part of the story. In fact, my blog’s title “Eternal Purpose”, points to this very thing. It’s the story that never really gets talked about.

It’s the story of God’s design for us. It’s the story of God’s design for us. Let this sink in. God had/has a plan. It was/is for us. To be with God. For God to prepare a place for us. To plan the way of life for God and his creation’s. The world, the environment, the way of life, the Kingdom.

It was the paradigm.

But mankind had other idea’s.(we know where this goes)

God is in control, and now beginning to re-take shape into the one that God originally designed. God’s Kingdom is now being re-made with man and Himself being the way that He had in the Garden of Eden.

God will be worshipped, no more idols will be worshipped. Only God.

Heaven and Earth will be joined together again! It’s coming!

LIFE

Do we not understand what LIFE is?

A very simple explanation of life is it is the opposite of death! Now what is death? Are automatic response is the physical death of our body. We need to understand that this is also in relationship to our spiritualness in our Spirit.

When we chose the tree of the “knowledge of Good and Evil”  this was the choice of the opposite of “the tree of Life”, so by default the tree of “knowledge of Good and Evil” is death. God’s tree of Life is one that is designed for God’s creation, man and his creator.

Man’s desire to control his ‘life’ was never intended. The creation is never greater than the creator. God’s design was to ‘live’,commune,with his creation. Mankind is ‘King’. We are in charge of our realm, we are all knowing, we can fix it, make it better and or great, we can salvage what ever comes up when something goes wrong.

Are we missing something? What does ‘life’ mean? Is it temporary, is it forever, eternal? What is it? Does it depend on us, or does it come from outside us? The word ‘Life’ is used in our society as a measuring stick to differentiate between ‘being’ or ‘death’. Could this be the issue? Has our notion that our ‘life’ is just ‘being’ that is what it is all about? Or is it that we are not ‘dead’ that what we are?

Generations have struggled to define or ‘know’ what life was in their religious or secular world. It’s that uncertainty or that just aloofness of mankind that we can figure it out one day that we just don’t worry about it.

It could be that mankind has substituted that ‘life’ with idols of our realm that we have made for ourselves that we strive for everyday in every way. We have made them our ‘life’. It is what we are always striving for, every day for all our lives, until our death is in sight, then we ‘see’ what we thought was ‘life’ was not ‘life’ but ‘death’, in that it had captured us and had us in  it’s grip. We weren’t experiencing ‘life’, we are a slave to our creation of idols,death, something that is opposite that we were striving for.

So, where do you we go from here? Maybe we need to realize what the meaning of ‘Death’ is?

Idol-ling along…….

Old testament tells us what an idol is,what it is, who it is,where it is, and Why it is. Do we know the answers to these questions now?

Does the world know them? Do the ‘christians’ know the answers? Do we care to know them? Are they still relevant questions for today,or were they just for that time?

Ask yourself these questions to see what you answer. Are these questions relevant to you, a christian, and outsider?

Ponder these things and we will look into what IDOLS are all about and what they have to do with us in today’s world!
