Thoughts For Good Friday

Gen 1:2 “And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.”

What if this world was a reality television show for other planets? 
Look at it this way, it IS a reality tv show to God and He is watching us and what we do with His world. 

God’s nature, in essence, is Love, Life, and Spirit

Everyone who knows me knows that I am indebted to God and am eternally bound to Him but as I blog, I try to see God from a non-believers perspective and try to relay the message for the reasons behind so many believers in the Word. 

I personally can’t fathom a ‘no such thing as God’ theory. To think that millions of molecules just formed into existence that we call human, and the same infrastructure formed into the animal species lower than man. If you believe in evolution then why have the human species stopped evolving?

If you believe dinosaurs were on the ark that Noah built, in the form of alligator’s and crocodiles then you believe in evolution, not a supreme Creator who made everything ‘in the beginning’ who was happy with what He created. You might find a group of scientists who believe that theory and try to sell you THEIR version of creation but if we are to believe that God himself is the creator, please don’t spin an evolution tale on the dinosaurs and confuse people.

1 Cor. 14: 33 “For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.”

I’m not indebted to God and trying to dissect the words of the bible at the same time. I live for God because through Him the bible taught me to live, love and be filled with the Spirit that has been indwelled in me since conception.

I don’t put a spin on the Word, I don’t judge people for being different than me and demand that they live by the word I live by and that is just what has caused so much dissension in the different beliefs of the world.

I know atheists who don’t believe in God but believe in a spiritual force. Sorry guys, that spiritual force that is driving you is the same spiritual force driving me but my Spiritual force is Sacred to me and you don’t feel that your spiritual force is sacred and that is why you feel uneasy with the world and all their ‘hokey pokey’ beliefs.

Just like the Apocrypha, the books that were TAKEN from the original text of the bible, maybe unbelievers feel like we’re leaving something out and not sharing the entire story with them. It’s as if us religious nuts are holding a secret away from them. 

Maybe when THEY [unbelievers] read the bible they saw incest, rape, murderers, a mean and angry God who people followed out of fear. They never saw any truth because they were blinded, backhanded by the truth. Does that make sense?

They see miracles as coincidence, technology as a part of evolution, and good and evil as masks people wear. I see miracles as a thread of hope and as a promise kept. I see technology as evolution since the beginning of time when the first fire was lit to now when we light our stoves with the turn of a button. 

I believe Jesus is the Son of God, just as I believe the Immaculate Conception took place. Why do I believe in the Immaculate Conception? It is no different than the Earth being conceived from nothing (time and space) and made into something (breathed into life). Just as the Earth suffered through growing pains, with the dinosaurs, the ice age, Jesus had to experience the same suffering so that the entire earth, not just the animal and human kingdom, could be saved from extinction. Through Resurrection Sunday, the Spirit saves us. 

The (loose term for non-believer) Atheist of the world seeks out simplicity. In a nutshell, I’ll give it to them. The Bible can be surmised in three words: life, love, Spirit. Life [God], love [Jesus], Spirit [the trinity, three in one]. You’re right atheists’, the rest is just stories that man has told only from the life [God] in them. We spread the Word because it is the life [God] and love [Jesus] in us and it permeates the soul through the Spirit. 

Atheist and Christians are not going to like what I say next. If you have life in you, you have God in you. If you have love in you, then you have a piece of Jesus in you. If you have life and love in you, the Spirit LIVES in YOU!

1 John 4: “And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love, and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.”

On this day, Good Friday, the day that man has set aside for us to celebrate the journey toward Resurrection Sunday, I am not here to give believers the Words and beliefs they already know, understand and embrace, I’m here to do just what Jesus did and that is to give hope to the lost, confused and the weary. 

Your grace is enough!
