How can we define or acknowledge God. I believe that God may choose to reach us rather than us being successful to find him just by looking for him. From the word of the bible and love from within, he explains to us what can be perfection for mankind. We are full of faults yet we can be perfected by his grace. Sometimes I believe that we chose to run away from God, otherwise we would know him much better because he is constantly talking to us; by looking at the greatness of the universe is in a way listening to God if we open our hearth to him.
God is magnificent and beyond our understanding, yet he has given us a way to understand where we come from and where we may end; all we have to do is to study the bible. We may recognize a good part of him simply by paying attention to our surroundings and listening to our hearth.
Today science will explain evolution where a long process was at hand. Eventually we arrive to man as we know him today. Historically man gave a name to what he could recognize, like did Adam in the bible, the first man from creation, the humanity that God wants us to recognise as our beginning and our ancestor for the start of our spiritual evolution reaching justice with Abraham and true redemption with Jesus Christ. Adam is the example of our present physiognomy and weakness, we are sinners saved by the grace of Jesus Christ.
Man identifies with what he knows, and everything man knows has a name, so recalls the bible.
Nowadays everything seems to be accelerated, commodities and distractions are making us very presumptuous, believing like always that we can be self sufficient by having earthly forces, and forgetting all concept of being under a greater power and will.
We must admit that intelligence, man’s intelligence, had its beginning and if it really was spontaneous in the creation, man still had to go through apprenticeship. Intelligence, consciousness, state of mind, love, and other attributes, are all in togetherness with our soul. God wants us to be healthy so that we may have eternal life. So our soul is what we must be more concerned about.
The way to eternal life is given in the bible. Jesus-Christ is the saviour of mankind; now we must do our best to better ourselves and be grateful to have our saviour and lord Jesus Christ. The bible contains the word of God which explains everything trough the experience of the Jews.
Mankind will cry for help when all is lost and all powerful God is merciful to reach and strengthen his people. Thousands of years have passed by and mankind is still the same. The strong are not questioning themselves, the weak are suffering, and those in the middle are usually contempt and do not want to make waves, so crime, wars and love stories remain the same. But the history of the Jews recalls how God disapproved abused over his people.
Man came to identify that blood is what is the most valuable, that blood gives life and blood purifies. A blood sacrifice would be what appeases God the most and cleans someone of his sins so was the belief, but God never asked for sacrifices. God for man’s sake had to put an end to foolishness by sharing man’s hurt and implementing true meanings in suffering hearths.
After the old covenant where10 written laws were given by God to Moses, and multiple other laws were added, we now live under the New Testament which is the grace of God.
Jeremiah 31:33 (New International Version) “This is the covenant I will make with the people of Israel after that time,” declares the Lord. “I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people.34 No longer will they teach their neighbor, or say to one another, ‘Know the lord,’because they will all know me, from the least of them to the greatest,”declares the Lord.“For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more.”
Matthew 12,7 If you had known what these words mean, ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice,’ you would not have condemned the innocent.8 For the Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath.”
God answers prayers:
The Old Testament is full of interventions where God or “I am” favours justice. I believe that I am is the most appropriate name for our creator, recalling our faith; many other names are meaningful, the most common being God. The Old Testament recalls today’s man full of interior constraints between God and social requirement, what was then approved by the elders. There are the Ten Commandments and different Jewish laws that we can find in the bible. Some laws are often what we would conceder as being mostly sanitary rather than purification, others relate to the Sabbath. If the law was a cause of committing faults the New Testament brings redemption to all men.
Today some people like to believe that they can save themselves, at least to what tends to their life on earth. That by thinking positively and believing to be in contact with the universe is all that is needed to realise their enterprise. But there are missing a link to this union of force, which is love and the manifestation of love. (1 cor.13) Why would someone want to invent what already exists or go around the blessed requirements and renouncing believing in the history with the recollection of miraculous happenings?
Realising that good has been universalised is a great plus for mankind, and God’s blessing, where education and charity improves. Jesus uses the term truth surely for the better universal sense. Thousands of years of love past and where is humanity today?
Hebrews 10:5 Therefore, when Christ came into the world, he said:“Sacrifice and offering you did not desire, but a body you prepared for me; 6 with burnt offerings and sin offerings you were not pleased.7 Then I said, ‘Here I am—it is written about me in the scroll— I have come to do your will, my God.’” 8 First he said, “Sacrifices and offerings, burnt offerings and sin offerings you did not desire, nor were you pleased with them”—though they were offered in accordance with the law. 9 Then he said, “Here I am, I have come to do your will.” He sets aside the first to establish the second. 10 And by that will, we have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
1 John 4:19 We love because he first loved us. 20 Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen. 21 And he has given us this command: Anyone who loves God must also love their brother and sister.
The grace of the Lord Jesus be with you all!
