I really don’t get it.
It makes little sense to me…
If Jesus’s Message was SO important to the entire world (and frankly i feel it was about as Important as it ever gets) WHY did HE NEVER write one word that is recorded as under His own Human Hand??
I mean if EVER someone on Earth was ‘qualified’ to write about His Dad and what we were put on this earth for it was Him! Right?
And if His message was not to be sullied by His earthly brain and body – even as it was, directly under Divine Guidance (who could ever claim Divinity such as His?) – and this menial task was left to some, but not all, of His Twelve Disciples.
Just Why then, in God’s Name, did they all wait until SO long after events had transpired to put it down on paper so that we today might know of Him through reading the Bible (and other sources most seem content to ignore even after 50 or more years after their discovery).
Was this an important message for all posterity ? or Not??
If Kevin Rudd coming to power (In Australia! – GW reckons we are one of your best friends – could you at least learn somethings about my country’s politics – i am forced to know a mass about yours in the US – it is NOT through ‘choice’ – believe me) were the Second Coming, in 4 000 AD would people only be reading about it because Julia Gillard wrote about it in 2050??
So why do we do something as strange as this now?
Sure most were illiterate back then, but Christ knew the World and everything that was and was to come. He KNEW we would need to read about Him today and tomorrow until He came back as He Promised (keep looking folks! Just remember how many have died in the ‘sure’ knowledge that He was coming back ‘soon’ – hopefully in their lifetimes. He actually told ‘us’ it would be in the present lifetime – read Matthew!).
He IS here – He always was – it is what WE do that determines when He ‘returns’ on Earth. I wonder how many of you understand that at all?
How many of you will be as He foretold in His parable and sit and wait and ‘bury’ the Gold Pieces? Until His Master returns and pays what is due?
Which Church has ever made their converts aware of the Truth He passed on to His Flock?
They never deny it for then they might be caught out – but they never encourage you to discover for yourselves the Truth either – it is very possible they don’t even know it themselves, or more sinisterly, they know and choose to keep such power unto themselves alone, afraid of losing their hold over His Children…
or maybe there is another ‘explanation’?
To me, His Message was one of Love – Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind- we should Love God/Father. Love one another, as fallible as we all are. Love our Soul because it is from, and of, God – within us all, and love our self so as to be able to forgive ourselves in our own minds, for unless we can do this we will never have Peace internally and while we are in conflict within we can never be totally true to Jesus and His Promise to us.
We should also Love our Mother – the Earth from which we are all made and receive our physical form and sustenance. Man does not live by bread alone – even manna. Neither can we live without it, only through spirit. The body we live in needs Both – Bread and God’s Spirit, renewed in us ‘daily’, if we are to achieve the potential He Promised.
If we are to follow truly His Example.
Dare we? Or would that be asking too much?
The longer we procrastinate through some misunderstanding or mis-Direction the longer and further ‘away’ from Him we become.
So I Truly believe in my Heart, and Soul, and mind.
The Time comes quickly!
