Free Flow…

Comments… questions… observations… life experiences.

This is all going somewhere, but I just don’t know where right now… let’s push off from the shore.

As far as I know, none of us made a decision to come into this life… none of us picked earth as our home… not that there might have been other homes… and not that we might have lived in another earth age, in a form quite different from this flesh and blood form we now live in… but it’s possible… Reference Jeremiah 1: 5….( “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.)…. so the question must immediately be asked does this apply to Jeremiah only…or to every human being that has ever lived?…[and if it does apply to Jeremiah only, we must ask why] I don’t know and can’t say for sure, but it is interesting…. we see through a glass darkly….Note: A possible answer to God saying that before He formed Jeremiah in the womb He knew him.. is that, it is possible that righteousness and justification was accounted to Jeremiah because he was not part of the 1/3 that rebelled against God in the Revelation 12 rebellion… making him eligible to be a prophet in this age ( compare that to righteousness and justification being given to us humans through belief in Christ in this earth age)… also continuing this line of thought many of us may have been part of the rebellion (remember this rebellion occurred in the first earth age..refer to 2nd Peter chapter 3, where all three earth ages are discussed…. we are currently in the second earth age, the third earth age will be the Millenium, at the second coming of Christ…. so many of us may be living in this flesh blood and bone existence to find out who we will truly worship[God or Satan]… having possibly been part of the 1/3 that rebelled against God in the first earth age, and now in this second earth age we are given another chance…. a last chance…. because God is not willing that any should perish.

So considering all this…. which I must admit is a real head trip… however I can remember being a very young man 17 or 18 years old… hanging out with my friends walking the streets, and we found ourselves asking ourselves….WHY ARE WE HERE?… why on this rock spinning through space… billions of people coming and going through the ages and for what purpose?

And why is this life sometimes such a heavy load? so many things to consider, so many choices to make… we find ourselves, smack dab in the middle of an ongoing struggle between Good and Evil… again we had no choice in this matter, but here we are with no choice but to deal with it…

Then we have the Bible, the Koran.. Judeo-Christianity…. Messianic Jews, Orthodox Jews, Born-again believers, Hindus, Muslims, and the rest, all claiming to know the way to heaven and God… why is what we believe so important? why can’t life be simpler… we live we die… if there is an eternity we think in our natural minds we should automatically be in heaven…. after all we are trying our best… and we are pretty good… then we learned that ‘that’s’ not the criteria to get into heaven… and it’s not based on some scales where the good and the bad we have done are weighed out… it’s more complicated yet simpler than that…. simpler in the sense that it’s about receiving a free gift according to God… the gift of his sons sacrificial death on the cross to make everything right, and reconcile us to God the Father, because of what happened in the Garden of Eden and our fallen state, which brought our main enemy which is death upon us…

So for me, after dealing with all this throughout my life… I have come to the conclusion that I have to make a decision… do I trust God and his plan?…. and to be honest with you I haven’t found a better explanation…. I also have found only one that overcame the grave, paid the sin penalty… (making God the Father happy) & allowing me to live vicariously through His life.. THE WAY….Jesus Christ…. you might have to read this several times…. Sincerely, Frank Payton… visit my other works at my blog…littleraventhepoet.blog…copyright Frank Payton…
