Walking, Talking Christ

Life is hard.

It is hard fighting it.

We seem to be fighting life from the negative side or from the bad side of the equation. We believe that if we fight for a bad cause to make it better, life will get better. But fighting from this angle it can wear us down after time. In fact, our crusade could take us our whole life to conquer it. If even then it would be conquered then. This is just coming from a personal conviction, what about everyone else?

This way of fighting the negative could be considered a social fight to rid the world of the all the ‘so-called’ evil in the world. The effort that ‘our’ mission seems to be to rid the ‘evil’ is misguided in that God has vowed that this is ‘His’ job to fill. Man’s ability to make the ‘social ills’ of society, could be a disaster to all involved by the turmoil of what someone deems to be ‘evil’. We may be seeing this now in our world now.

But more importantly, who is to say ‘What is Evil or bad in one’s society’?

The other side of the coin, could be, no, It ‘is’ the way to attack the world. It is the standing up as a follower of Christ and the ‘identity’ that it upholds as the body of Christ. As was in the old testament the identity of God’s people was their identity of their law, and their own God. God’s change to the new covenant was to write the ‘law’ on the hearts of his people.

Our concept of what our ‘identity’ as a Christ follower has got to coincide with what the foreshadow of the old covenant. We must stand as representative of Christ in our world, such as a High Priest would do in Israel.

I saw an illustration of a small group of people singing carols in a circle, holding candle’s, with one being lit. The key to this illustration is the way that it is the right way to do it. You see, When one has the lit candle in a crowd, showing light in a dark place, all others are wanting to be ‘in’ the light. So there instinct is to ‘go’ to the one that has the light and be ‘like’ or just ‘be’ light.

You started with one candle lit(Christ’s light), with darkness all around him. You then are approached by someone from the darkness asking for to be in the ‘light’ with the touching of candles, to produce a brighter light. Those two lights are approached with another candle wanting to be lit as a light for himself, and for others. It is then seen by someone farther away in the darkness, that sees a light for direction, and goes there to have their candle(life) represented as a light in the world.

It is this model of God’s people coming together as one that will become God’s Kingdom.

Revisiting Garden of Eden & Revelation

I have touched on this subject probably on a few occasions with some different proclamations, but today I am using the two statements in a different way.

I have started another long and winding road towards the matters of studying the early church fathers, not knowing where it will lead me. But it is the way I like it. New and Different, outside the box kinda thing, I say! It is here, that I found out studying another subject, that all the answers that we are searching for in between these two statements of ‘Garden of Eden’ and ‘Revelation’ are in these two statements!

I have like I said pointed out in my blogs that it is in these two statements, ‘Beginning & ‘Eternal’ that we can find our storyline to follow in between the two statements. But it is the two statements that will drive our storyline to fruition.

So let’s re look at the beginning, the garden of Eden, What was it,and Why? God’s desires an image, an image in his likeness in his world(Temple), with fellowship together with them. It is in this fellowship that His desire is to commune with them. It is the unity of the Trinity of God that is the basis of Life. This Life is the sole instrument of what God is. Life is the Alpha and the Omega.(This statement should be written into our minds and our hearts to guide us to God’s desire for Man)

God’s beginning was not conditional on whether it worked on man or not, it would work! There’s no plan b. God’s fellowship was his goal with his creation, to create a land, a people, and a King/Priest to enjoy eternity, worshiping the creator by the creation.

God created a masterpiece in the universe that man can only see a very minute piece of it at this time, which it stills boggles my mind on our magnificent it is. I can’t even imagine what we will exclaim when we can see the whole thing,(I am assuming that the only way that we will be able to see the whole thing is when Heaven and Earth are re-united together soon.) It is this backdrop in the image of God’s desire to set up the most desirous thing possible for us by Him. There has not been anything spared in the luxury’s of God’s world for us. It was us and God,mingling,walking,talking,living together!

This is the life.

No, This is Life.

Now let’s fast forward in time and the story. God is describing the New Jerusalem(this context is pointing to that of ‘it’ is the temple that God was always wanting(Garden of Eden), Man inside his temple and all his Glory). New Jerusalem will be flowing with the river of life, stones of beauty to show God’s utmost of himself, It’s symbolism of the the twelve tribes of Israel, the Glory is all in all.

God’s reality of His Kingdom is now come to it’s fruition. It is the accumulation of all things together in God’s name that the ‘Eternal Purpose’ has come to God and Man.

Now it is just the journey in the middle of the story that will continue the story from A to B, this is the journey, to lead us into the Glory of the Lord in his ‘New Kingdom’.

I see Dead people!

I look around me and I see dead people walking. It is so sad.
Dead people that are just walking around in their own world of selfishness, prestige, and denial. They are dead in the world that can never give them life.
Christ came to Us to give us Life. We chose death that fateful day in the Garden of Eden, and we have been living in it ever since. If we chose Life through Christ to God. We will be Alive and well!!
I pray that you will “see dead people” and realize that you yourself are dead or someone you know is dead and to pray for them and Live the Life of Christ as the “walking Alive”.!!
