If there's no Creator:
There is no transcending meaning, values, purpose, or eternal life.
If there's a Creator:
WHERE DID WE COME FROM: ALL intelligence, all life, all things seen or unseen, all that is known or unknown, all that may exists in any dimension, universe, form or place, originated from and is sustained by GOD. God created man from the elements, breathed into him The Breath Of Life and man became a Living Soul. We are not here by chance or accident dear reader it was planned from the beginning. "In the beginning God" Genesis 1:1
"Before I formed you in the belly I knew you and before you came forth out of the womb, I sanctified you." Jeremiah 1:5
"O Lord you have searched me and know me. You compassed (understand fully and completely) my path and my lying down and are acquainted with all my ways...Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it...Where shall I go from thy spirit or presence?...For you have possessed my reins: you have covered me in my mother's womb...for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are your works; and that my soul knows right well...My substance was not hid from you when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought...Your eyes did see my substance, yet being not perfected (physically or spiritually) and in the book (DNA Code) all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned when as yet there was none of them. Psalm 139: 1-17 It is written " I will put my law in their inward parts and write it in their hearts; and I will be their God and they shall be my people."....Jerimiah 31:33 and again it is also written: "I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts and will be their God, and They shall be my people...." Hebrews 8:10
"Our Creator gave each a book with ink and pen, in which our life to write.
Then at the appointed time He will read what we have written upon its pages.
Word by word, line by line, chapter by chapter we chart our destiny for the ages.
Our life on earth etched within our souls recorded in The Book of Life, copied from each life's pages" Daniel R.L.
"And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea,
and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that moves upon the earth.
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. Genesis 1:26-27 KJV
"....The Soul that rises with us, our Life’s Star, hath had elsewhere its setting and comes from afar; not in entire forgetfulness,
and not in utter nakedness, but trailing clouds of glory do we come from God, who is our home..."
William Wordsworth, Intimations of Immortality from Recollections of Early Childhood.
WHY ARE WE HERE? There is no need to travel the world seeking enlightenment atop mountains, in caves, in temples, in churches lit by dim candle light, or men dressed in priestly garments. The meaning of life is written within men's hearts by our Creator and is witnessed throughout the heavens, if we would but open our eyes. We begin our life on Earth given the gift of life, our physical body, and our individual consciousness. We are nurtured within an earthly family, and in turn have our own family with it's responsibilities. We interact with others, experience life and death, sickness and health, happiness and sorrow, truth and lies, pain and pleasure, the just and unjust, and all the trials of earthly life. To grow in knowledge, understanding, and wisdom. We are here to experience those things common to mankind and to be good stewards of the earth. We are given the ability to choose the spiritual not the temporal, good not evil, morality not immorality, wisdom not ignorance, peace not war, kindness not cruelty, and love not hate. We are accountable for our choices which effect ourselves, others, and define our eternal destiny. Dear Reader we must govern ourselves from within (through God's Spirit) or others will do it from without.
He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names. Psalm 147:4 (KJV)
To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One.
Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number:
he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one faileth.
Isaiah 40:25-26 (KJV)
It is Gods purpose that we become aware of our individual consciousness, our relationship with Him, our interrelationships and responsibilities with others. All of which is the reason for our existence and the source of eternal happiness. It is through experiencing mortal life and death we obtain the ability to truly comprehend the gift of eternal life. It is Gods desire and plan that we learn how to sustain ourselves, grow in knowledge, understanding, and wisdom. But we find ourselves unable to live the basic spiritual principles we have thus far been given. Are we to expect greater enlightenment? Yes. However might it be more correct to ask? If we receive further enlightenment would we not do more harm to ourselves and others physically and spiritually? Let us each strive to live the truths we now have knowing Gods Holy Spirit will reveal to us what we are ready to receive.
WHERE ARE WE GOING? Like little children we are pilgrims on a spiritual journey. GOD has always been involved in the lives of individuals, families, communities, towns, nations and the world. This will continue throughout eternity. God has written upon our minds and hearts a consciousness of right and wrong with a spiritual desire toward Him which only He can fulfill. God loves us. He has given us the ability to choose to be His adopted Sons and Daughters destined to inherit the coming new glorified Earth and His many other creations, throughout eternity.
"When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have ordained; what is man, that you are mindful of him?...." and "Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, all the things which God has prepared for those that love Him."
We are on a spiritual journey in a fallen world.
We are on a journey called destiny. The path we are on has two rails to guide us. One is truth the others is love. Remain on the path guided by the rails and continue until you come to a very steep hill. Do not look back. Steadfastly continue up the hill no matter how difficult or dark the journey.
Know this Pilgrim; it may be that about the time you grow tired and are about to give up the quest you will apprehend dimly at first, a light shining from the other side of the hill down through the darkness to help you complete your journey. And you shall know for yourself God is love, light, and truth. Those who truly seek Him shall find Him and know Him for themselves.
No-matter who you are,
No-matter where you are,
No-matter what your condition,
God is there. for all who truly seek to know Him.
God provided four points of reference to guide us on our journey.
His Holy Spirit * His Written Word * His Answered Prayers * His Witness Within Creation
It is necessary in today's society that we develop communications awareness.
WHEN READING: Read what is written, read what is not written, and read what is between the lines.
WHEN HEARING Hear what is said, hear what is not said, and hear the message between what is said.
WHEN SEEING: See what is, see what is not, and see what is hidden within the shadows and darkness.
We live in a world of lies, delusions and deceptions inspired by the Prince of this world. Stay strong; fight the good fight.
THOSE who choose to live immoral lives view Christ as judgmental.
THOSE who choose a life of lies and treachery view Christ as their competition.
THOSE who choose to live by the law view Christ as a stumbling block.
THOSE who choose to trust in man's wisdom view Christ as foolishness.
THOSE who choose to acquire money, power, and rule over others view Christ as weak.
THOSE who choose to live as unbelievers view Christ as their enemy.
We now endure suffering by faith which we shall come to know is for our understanding and benefit!
Where once there was deception and darkness there will be light!
What is now beyond our comprehension will be revealed!
What seems impossible with men is possible with God!
What appears unjust will be justified!
What is unclear will become clear.
Truly we are not without hope
Remember Gods ways are above mans ways.
Life's adversities and our redemption are reconciled within God's
Eternal Love, Holiness, Righteousness, Wisdom, Justice, Mercy, Grace, Redemption, Power, and Glory
It's not about buildings or denominations.
It's about Jesus Christ and being Born Again.
It's a personal relationship and Knowing For Yourself.
Those who truly choose and accept Jesus Christ are Born Again as adopted sons and daughters of God.
