“Visibility”

visibility-01Hebrews 11:3 By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the Word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.

There is a manifold meaning to this scripture in my mind. We know that most everything around us is made up of molecules and atoms in a variety of forms. Water, for example is made up of one part Oxygen and two parts Hydrogen, H2O. We can see neither of these two atoms but once put together, they become visible. Then, there is the vibrational sounds that are also creative, music is a good example. There is music which is relaxing and music which makes you want to get up and dance. In my mind, I am creating the thoughts which I wish to put down on paper (in this document). As with the above scripture, God spoke things into existence and I believe we also have a tendency to be creative with our words. There are soothing words that create in us a sense of warmth and belonging and there are words of hatred which will drive people away. There are people who are continually thankful of all their surroundings in which case, they seem to draw things into existence that will constantly make them thankful. And quite the opposite, there are people who are never satisfied with their surroundings and their surroundings, no matter how much it may change, never is satisfying. Makes me think of a statement by Socrates, “He who is not happy with what he has would not be content with what he would like to have!”

I do believe, we tend to create the world we live in, like it or not.

“Breakfast Thoughts”

Cyclamin on the table

As I sat eating breakfast, there is a flowered plant on the table and as I looked at it, I thought that all the beautiful flowers that God has created here on this earth are just very tiny hints of what the Lord has in store for us as we go to be with Him. Even with my wild imagination, I can envision but a poor thought of what it might look like. As I thought about this, I thought of how even what we have here must be given sunlight and water or it will die. Immediately as the thought crossed my mind, a flower fell off onto the table and died. It felt like God was listening to my thoughts. I know He is real and I am anxious to meet Him face to face.

“Parting Thoughts For 2016”

parting-words

The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is a Creative God of life. He formed Adam from the dust of the ground and breathed into him thus causing him to become a living soul. From him He formed Eve to be a help-mate and the two became one flesh and were instructed to be fruitful and multiply. In a sense, the two became one in their offspring. (Just as I am one from my parents, the two becoming one in me)

As I see it, this man Yeshua (this name being translated from its Hebrew means ‘salvation’) was birthed from a young virgin Israeli girl (Isaiah 7:14) when the God of Creation deposited His DNA in her. Thus this God caused an all God man to come forth which He proved to all by everything He did while on this earth thus Proverbs 30:4 can be answered.

Then we have the willing sacrifice of Isaac by Abraham on Mount Moriah. Abraham did not have to struggle to bind Isaac to the alter of sacrifice, Isaac was willing to obey his father even unto death if need be according to Genesis 22:9.

Then, we have the first Passover as the Hebrews were spared from the death of the firstborn because of the slain Lambs blood on the doorposts of their dwellings (Exodus 12:13)

just as we put that blood of the Lamb (Salvation) on the doorposts of our hearts which gives us eternal life when we finally shed the earth suit.

And finally, we have the description of the Lambs sacrifice in Psalm 22 and Isaiah 53 that takes away the rights of Satan to kill us.

 I am not certain of this but, this may be one of my last posts as I have macular degeneration in both eyes meaning, that there is a black spot in center vision making it quite difficult to type on the computer keyboard. Trouble is, this God of Creation keeps giving me things I think need to be said to fulfill His plan for my life. We shall see what we shall see as to what 2017 brings. Blessings to all and thanks for following me.
