The day after

I don’t know if I have ever hear any discussion about ‘the day after’ Adam and Eve chose the ‘tree of Knowledge of good and evil’.

What I would like to discuss is the ‘state of mind’ that God was in when this happened to his kingdom and to his people. Yes I know,we don’t or won’t ever know what that is, but we are going to just discuss the possibilities of it.

I believe we must start from the beginning of said story, even tho the event only happened in the third chapter of the story, we must go back to the first and second chapter to ‘see’ what God’s intention was and to ‘how’ he was trying to accomplish it.

God was a creator, a creator of beautiful and majestic things for the universe to shine in the eyes of the Lord. He created a world called earth, a earth that was designed for an image, an image of himself to represent the Holy one. Man was that image. Man was to be the crown jewel of his total creation. It was to be a narrative that was going to go on and on thru fruitfulness of man and creation. This was the blueprint.

Now, if this was the plan, and their was a hiccup in it, what was God’s thought when there was a speed bump in it? Just quit it? Try to get the plan back on track? Alter the storyline, take another tack? Or doesn’t even care anymore?

How we perceive ‘our’ God, is the answer to these questions.

IF you perceive your God as a Loving and caring God of his Creation in all forms. Then you must believe that your God is a Loving God. He is one that cares for His Creation and His intent. He is one that is not wavering or influenced in change. He is firm and stout in his creation and man. It was to be so, no matter what.

Is it just me, or…..

I’m a reader,I study, I research, I explore possibilities, I never leave a stone untouched.

I ask questions, I always ask “Why”, I will look at your side, I will look at mine too.

But I never quit for the knowledge of God.

This will be a rambling of things that have gone on in the world of Christianity and it’s process that is led us to today.

Let’s start with, way back in the olden’ days, I mean When it was Just God,Son, and the Holy Spirit. Now this ring of three circle we cannot enter into, for a variety of reasons, but we can just guess. Just by the outcome of their decisions. God,Jesus, Holy Spirit were a very tight and unique unit of Holiness. It was after all, The three of eternity and beyond.

God wanted to expand his influence and purpose by creating a Universe with an representative in it. It was to become an Temple to itself. It would have a paradise of a world with all the things to sustain it with a circle of life. It would have administrator for a continued success for eternity and beyond. It would be perfect.

This world would be different than the paradigm of God tho, it would have the tainted influence of Man in a human form with the flesh to struggle with. It was the paradigm of God that was different in that it was a realm of Holiness and Love. It is this realm that we must be mindful of in the story of mankind. Holiness is a strange reality when we are looking from the outside in. But God will soon show us a way into this reality.

Where I want to go now, from this foundation of the storyline is that the thing that we are confused on in the journey to get to this Holiness, is we are trying to achieve it thru human or fleshly actions. It doesn’t work, won’t work,never will,can’t be done. Did I say that there is no hope in fleshly ways?

God, in his Son, while walking on this earth was giving us a blueprint, tips, subtle hints, out of this world picture words, or even things that we would have to imagine in our minds to perceive his ways. But one thing should(but doesn’t) all these things are not of this world! They are all from the World of God. They are Holy. They are righteous. They are of Him.

God works thru His Heavenly Realm.

God lays it out there for us to ‘See’ in His Realm.

God thru all ‘time’ has used this method of transparency for ‘US’ to ‘See’ Him.

I am a firm believer that we must ‘see’ him starting with before time started. How can we do that you say? God has worked thru mysterious ways thru time.

If God is working thru mankind, he will use man to reach itself thru the outstretched hands of God.

This will be my initial point, God uses everything that He has touched or is going to touch to let us see Him. This is where I say that mankind or even just Christianity has failed in the obvious reality that God has laid things out for us to see and to understand God even better.

God has used history of man to be used in his quest for man to know Him, but also to live it, to be the example to the world. Man has written down the stories and visions of God thru his special people throughout time. It is for this reason we have not used everything to our advantage. I believe that we are on the cusp of really being able to ‘SEE’ God for who He really is, and especially who He is to US.

I am a Preachers Kid. I have been in this Paradigm for most of my life. I have been in the circle of multiple preachers thru the years of my fathers ministry, I have been in contact with alot of the preachers kids also to continue the story. It is when I was on the other side of ‘Ministry’ that it dawned on me that this ‘ministry’ didn’t have the whole story, it was telling a story that was not complete. If you know the background of Religion you know that it has had multiple divisions along the way for the sake of the ‘right one’ being pushed. But as you can tell, these are of the human interest way of telling things, not of God. They are all like this, no exceptions.

But where did it go wrong?

In my opinion, we didn’t look at the whole picture, the whole story!

It’s like we started our story of God, in the middle of God’s story.

alas, confusing!

God has given us some new and exciting things to see and read in the last 100 years with new and old things being found in the biblical world thru archaeology. By not using these things as apart of the blueprint of God’s road map to him, would make us go down the wrong path, as I fear it already has.

I am currently reading Josephus,Apocrypha, and the Pseudepigrapha, which I fear that our predecessors have not used in their material of the blueprint to God. I am amazed at the insight it could and will give us in our journey to ‘Know’ God. I pray that you will join me in ‘Knowing’ God by knowing His life in the History of mankind.

Happy Reading!

Until we realize, we are in a ‘mankind made world’!

Genesis 1-2 was for a ‘lack of a better phrase’, just Heaven!(which there is none)

God had created a universe that was just out of this world for mankind to be in. It was just a site to be seen. It’s majesty, its beauty, its fullness, its glory was for mankind.

The creator was distinct in everything that he made; the universe, stars,suns,planets, and mankind. It was all for his glory.

God although the creator of all this, put himself in this picture of creation. Now, you just don’t see this when someone creates something, they are in it also. God did. He put himself in the most ironic places in all the world, with his creation of mankind to be with him in the most intimate way. God communed with his creation in a garden.

This is what fellowship or communion is all about. Our designer,creator,gardener of Eden is there with us in a very intimate way. We are totally unaware of anything else around us as being different. We are complete in Life as we know it.

But what changed? I am not sure, but I believe that mankind wanted to be ‘his own creator’, which in this instance, was not what he was designed for, which meant he was going against the grain of his creator.

So pushing the story down the road thru the centuries, we haven’t done a very good job of ‘creating’ our world as we would of liked it. you think? I wonder what ‘in the world’ that mankind was thinking that thought they could perfect perfection that was all around them,for then or for the future? What mentality did we have that would show us that we would be an great leader in all things of this world that someone else designed?

My question is to mankind after 8,000 plus years(one timetable of the world), is this what we were going for? I don’t have enough computer memory for me to put in all the things of the world that have gone ‘bad’ for mankind, do we see it getting better or worse, does mankind get ‘good’ as God describes him, or do we continue to get worse, because of what mankind has shun the creator of himself.

Does mankind revisit the time when mankind had the makings of being in a garden and communing with its maker and enjoying the daily walks with him? Do we see God’s design and temple analogy of his image being in the temple representing him?

What will it take? a cataclysmic event? a world that has totally forsaken him? or will it be when the whole of mankind realizes that ‘we'(mankind,his children) come back to him, in the garden!

The Whole Creation

With our understanding of the saving grace of God for us, what we need to realize that ‘all’ creation will be saved by God,not just the human creations. God’s creation of the universe, earth, the land,the animals, and the people will ‘all be saved’, so why is the focus on the just the people?

If we are to be ‘saved’, should we not just act like we are saved and to Love our neighbor, ourselves and the Lord, so as to bring about the saving grace to all of ‘God’s creations’?!

This should re-evaluate what our, I mean, what we think our intention is in being God’s creation as His sole need for His Eternal Purpose. God needs his Kingdom,People, and his Land. Garden of Eden -the sequel.
