We have to think as deeply as we possibly can about certain things… one of them is that God literally spoke this world, this universe, into existence. In fact we have to go beyond our natural minds and get on our knees and ask God to illuminate our minds and help us to see (as best we can) things from His perspective, and in a spiritual sense. Otherwise the effort will be futile.
Ex nihilo: The fashioning of life out of nothing… take a few deep breaths, relax, and calm your mind… imagine a God that could speak the Sun that lights our world into existence… when he spoke did it happen instantly?…. or did it happen over a measured time span… I’ve always wondered about this.
After you get your mind wrapped around the business with the Sun…. venture out considering the Moon, our Solar System and eventually beyond… the vastness of the universe… scientists say that we could travel at the speed of light for billions of years and not come to the end of the universe… that’s totally mind-boggling for our finite comprehension.
People that have had Near-Death experiences…NDE’s…. recall very comparatively similar experiences… that after dying…coming out of their body.. and looking back on their body.. and then meeting loved ones… they experience a blinding presence of light… and then many, if not all of them realize that the light is the presence and form of a man… that they come to learn was Jesus.
I don’t know about you friends, but I have a burning desire to bow my head before this wonderful God… let’s look at a couple of scriptures…
ISAIAH:55 8-11… For “My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways” sayeth the Lord…. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are MY ways higher than your ways”, and MY thoughts than your thoughts….For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and return not thither, but watereth the earth and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:
So shall “My Word that goeth forth out of My mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please and it shall prosper in the thing whereunto I sent it.”… if God says it or thinks it… it is as good as done… that’s real power…
There is also a Hebrew saying…. to paraphrase, it goes something like this…” every Jot and Tittle… every scripture will come true and be fulfilled”…. for a better understanding of how important jots and tittles are… in the English language they would be commas periods,exclamation points and the like… that’s pretty heavy duty don’t you think?
Let’s look at one more Scripture…John 1 vs 1— recommend reading at least the whole chapter for the full effect… In the beginning was the Word…and the Word was with God and the Word was God… the same was in the beginning with God… All things were made by Him, and without Him was not anything made that was made, in Him was life; And the life was the light of men, And the light shineth in darkness and the darkness comprehended it not… well I hope this study starts you on a journey of your own… you can check out my blog at littleraventhepoet.blog… thank you to the Holy Spirit for guidance in preparing this message…Frank Payton.
