A story that is His-story
We read and are struck by the sheer magnificence of His Glory, of His Love.
To him who alone doeth great wonders: for his mercy endureth for ever. To him that by wisdom made the heavens: for his mercy endureth for To him that stretched out the earth above the waters: for his mercy endureth for ever. To him that made great lights: for his mercy endureth for ever: The sun to rule by day: for his mercy endureth for ever: The moon and stars to rule by night: for his mercy endureth for ever. To him that smote Egypt in their firstborn: for his mercy endureth for ever: And brought out Israel from among them: for his mercy endureth for ever: With a strong hand, and with a stretched out arm: for his mercy endureth for ever. To him which divided the Red sea into parts: for his mercy endureth for ever: And made Israel to pass through the midst of it: for his mercy endureth for ever: But overthrew Pharaoh and his host in the Red sea: for his mercy endureth for ever. To him which led his people through the wilderness: for his mercy endureth for ever. To him which smote great kings: for his mercy endureth for ever: And slew famous kings: for his mercy endureth for ever: Sihon king of the Amorites: for his mercy endureth for ever: And Og the king of Bashan: for his mercy endureth for ever: And gave their land for an heritage: for his mercy endureth for ever: Even an heritage unto Israel his servant: for his mercy endureth for ever. Who remembered us in our low estate: for his mercy endureth for ever: And hath redeemed us from our enemies: for his mercy endureth for ever. Who giveth food to all flesh: for his mercy endureth for ever. O give thanks unto the God of heaven: for his mercy endureth for ever.
Psalm 136: 4-26
If you are offered droves of money and an existence with leisure in this life, just how could it be described? ‘Loot’ rolling in, note though- I did not say you were blessed. To be specific, blessings are from God. Loot is just that, it is ‘goods without definition’, We have to ask “From where???” It could mean so much If… But why do we use the word if? We are smitten by a fever that is want- we have to have, and then? I ask this question to make you think. Hopefully it touches a nerve. We have all we ever need, then? Point is, we are happy/content here, one again I ask, and then?
It sounded like I might have been a bit testy. I just stated that if here you have all you want and need, how about the next ‘life’, we discussed the ‘possibility’ of ‘recycling’. How then do you prepare for what is next? I have to state that this is THE question. Can anyone tell you what comes next? There is world history and people have existed for eons. I will state half jokingly “Have you met a cave person yet? Or at least an ancestor?” Let me be more serious. We are aware that this ‘Dude’ Jesus was. In His time, there were people, no? I do not think we can deny that He was. Agreed, as Christians, He changed The World!
We can look over history and there never has been any one that has literally changed the world like Him. Even if we admit we are not followers, there was this historical figure that existed and changed the course of His-story (and I refer to the ‘creating power’ that caused the world to be.
Let me point out another fact here’s the order of the planets, starting nearest the sun and working outward through the solar system: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune — and Planet Nine. If being believers God created all, we can look deeper into this. We are such a distance that reasonable exposure to the son causes no problems. Seasons change, yet we have developed waus to ‘cope’. The closest object is the moon. Not enough sun, not big enough. Mars? Too far, no life? I can go on, but it gives a clear concept. Life is as it was created to be. In this realm, far enough away from the sun which provides warmth, heat, light.
Let me make a point that has possibly crossed our minds. Is there ‘life’ on other planets? We have sent out various technologies to explore our realm. Just was we have discussed, it would take years to go from planet to planet. We would arrive and have to figure out how to live. Where would you get the oxygen? The more I delve into this, the more it becomes clear that Earth was created for life! We are life! No other planet has what is needed for ‘life’. Not even the moon! So, we can assume that Earth was placed just so for humans and living life.
Mind you, we were created last! As caretakers of what was created. Furthermore, we – male and female were created in His image. As pointed out not that God in any way appears as us, but we are like Him. Yes, we are ‘little’ gods. Do we act like it? Or are we so caught up by what we are ‘missing’.
