“Designer – Owner – Operator”

Designer

Isaiah 40:28 Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the Lord, The Creator of the ends of the earth, neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable.

It occurred to me this morning that the Creator of all that we can see in the skies and the earth that is under our feet is owned and operated by the Creator of it all. There is a portion that is under the control of the prince of the air, Satan by name or Lucifer which name he is also known by or even ‘devil’ is yet another name of which many follow him by.

When Yeshua stood in the temple and said, admitt.d, that He was “the Light of the world”, He was not lying but telling the truth, since when The Creator God said, “Let there be Light” that was the day, day one, that Yeshua entered this earthly dimension. And at that point, God separated Light from the darkness; Yeshua from Lucifer. Just something to think about, the Creator has given all of us, the ability to choose whether we want to walk in darkness or in the Light. God is Spirit and unless one is born of the Spirit, one will continue to walk in darkness. One must be born of water, a flesh and blood birth, and the Spirit, from above, from God, in order to enter that Spiritual Kingdom of Light where God and Yeshua rule and reign.

“Spiritual Reality”

Graveyard Tombstones

1 John 2:15-17 Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.  For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world.  And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.

 Have you ever noticed that everything in the world that is visible around us is dying? In everything, trees, flowers, animals and even we have a birth, a growing and eventually a death. Everything in this worldly system will eventually die. That fancy car will eventually wear out and be nothing but junk eventually. Junkyards are full of really fancy cars that are deteriorating into nothingness. The word tells us that we came into this world with nothing and we will take nothing with us when we die. Not only is that a reality, but our stay here on this planet is limited to a very brief stay.

 Somewhere along the way from birth to death we must come to the conclusion that there is another reality, a spiritual one. Not only is this spiritual life a reality but it will not die. This Father of Lights, this Father of Yeshua/Jesus is spirit and He is Life. He is the maker of all things visible and invisible. This life that we live is like a second womb experience where we grow to maturity and this womb will not hold us any longer and we must come to birth into that spiritual realm of real life. How have we or are we growing in the knowledge of that one who is waiting for us to become His children where He can show us the real reality of “life” eternal. It will be a bit like going back to the Garden of Eden where life was full of wonder and amazement. It will be a place where we can walk and talk with our Maker in the cool of the evening. This Father of Lights has given us life which He wants to share His dominion with since we are His children. BUT He has also given us the right to walk away from His desire for us, to wander afar and desire the things of this world that we can see and lust after them rather than follow after Him, our choice. One cannot take any of this worlds goods with them and if the choice has been the things of this world rather than that spiritual life, it will end in an everlasting death with no way to change that decision. Death comes to everyone and the choice must be made before that eventuality.

“Called Out”

called-outJohn 15:19  If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.

 The Lord God of Israel, this God of Creation, has called some out of the world to be His own possessions, thus we are no longer bound by the worlds understanding of riches. For we have seen the lavish riches of God’s Kingdom and there is nothing that can equal them in this world. There is a far greater value in walking with the Lord in His Kingdom of the spirit, truth and love than in any of the ways of the flesh. We are talking here of a spiritual Kingdom that is far more real than what we see around us with our eyes. And that is why we are different, we can see something they, those walking according to the lust of the flesh, cannot see. We see a different value on the things around us from that spiritual sense that those who have not been called out of this world’s system cannot see. Yes, we are different; we are in fact aliens since we live in two dimensions of life rather than one. We actually go by a new name, we go by the name Christian, Follower, and Believer and we walk according to the values of the Bible to the best of our ability. We are not better, just different, and Yeshua is our King.
