GOD STEPPED INTO NOTHING AND…

Let’s put our thinking caps on… let’s loose our imaginations…find a new gear concerning some of the mysteries all around us…. the evidence of a creator that is all around us…open up to Gods voice…it is everywhere…

Does God really exist?…. how many millions of times do you think this question has been asked?…. how many people do you think have come up with an answer that they have total confidence in…even up to the point of betting their life on it?

How much evidence do we need as humans?… I mean really…. throw your head back and look up at the stars… try and look at the Sun, it will blind you in about 3 or 4 seconds… Behold the wonder of the sky…the ever-changing sky… think about the rain and snow…. the changing seasons… the trees that take in carbon dioxide and give us oxygen, without which there would be no life… think of the width and breadth of the ocean … The majestic mountain ranges…. lakes, ponds, rivers, streams… the animal kingdom… each animal so distinguished… each with their own beautiful sounds, such as the whale… the way that birds can maneuver.. how they are driven by instinct…. what a treasure, what gifts they all are…

And the above-referenced, just scratches the surface of creation…….. but we have to move on to the human body….brain, heart, bones, organs, eyes, ears… the reproductive systems, all for a specific purpose…. then we come to the big one, it is estimated there are 37.2 trillion cells in the body… all interacting at sublevels to create the body whole… even a watch has a creator…. how much evidence do we need friends?… Could it be that we’ve been deceived beyond imagination? because of our fallen state…. because of powers that pre existed… that were waiting for us as we came into this life… powers of Good and Evil, of God and the Devil, that are so powerful & important; that our decisions concerning them, have eternal consequences for each of us?… even if we don’t acknowledge the effect of our decisions?

Sometimes I hear a lot of people say…that they live their lives by ‘their’ standards….. and that my friends is a great big problem in the grand scheme of things…. we can’t all live by ‘our’ standards, that is evident by what is going on in our culture this very day…. we have to do something about the hate that we have in our hearts for each other, we have to ask questions, why do I feel this hatred, ask if this is all there is to life?… is getting ‘my way’ through violence really the answer that will that bring me everlasting happiness?…. what are we, Neanderthals?…. do some of us even care about eternal things, about everlasting happiness, about having peace, about being peaceful, about feeling the presence of God…. my God people, look at the gift you’ve been given…. if you can’t realize that your life is a gift how can you be of god?…. I promise you that if you could get over yourself, and sit and be quiet and feel the calm and the still…it will be the greatest sound that you ever heard…

Ok…. time that I laid my proverbial cards on the table about the way I feel about certain things…. let’s see if I can enlighten you about some insights into the creation of this whole world, and the knowledge that God has of every person that has ever lived or will live…

Here is the God, the creator that my spirit longs for: The God that SAID “let there be light”… and there was light… the God that said, let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters and let it divide the waters from the waters, and God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament, from the waters which were above the firmament, and it was so, and God called the firmament heaven, and the evening and the morning were the second day….

The God that gathered the waters under heaven into one place, and let the dry land appear… the wonderful God that said, ‘let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself.

The God that made the two great lights…. the greater light for the day, the lesser light for the night…He made the stars also.

The god that said,’let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life… and fowl that they may fly above the earth, in the open firmament of heaven’…

In short…. I long for this powerful wonderful beautiful God that is beyond our wildest dreams and comprehension…

I want this God that is the giver of life and love.. and then skipping ahead… I want the God that said, ‘let us make man in our image after our likeness’ and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth’….

Note: There is much more to the six days of creation, ( then the 7th day when God rested) I didn’t want to bore anyone to death with the whole thing, ( not that the account is in any way boring) you can read it for yourself later…

So friends let’s go back to the title of this post: God Stepped into Nothing And Created Everything…. can you get your mind around that friend?…. let’s see if you can fathom this…. in order to have a natural world, you have to have a supernatural ‘ability’ to create it, a supernatural ‘being’ to create it… ( a being that lives and exists outside of His creation, and is not dependent upon it in any way whatsoever)… in order to have a watch or a car, or clothes, or food, these have to come from somewhere… and someone usually has to create them…. so what might I ask is wrong with your cognitive abilities?…. you don’t have to answer, I know what it is, your eyes have scales, your heart is dark…. your mouth is foul…. and you are offended by the very thought of God…. of course I’m not speaking to everyone, I’m speaking in general terms…if the shoe fits, wear it…. because God will make you wear it….. He will insist you wear it…. if you don’t have a change of heart….

I can only speak for myself and call me whatever you will….I really don’t care…. if possible I want to look in my creators eyes, and say “Thank you”…. thank you for giving me life, and believing in me…. thank you for dealing with the failures of my life, thank you for dealing with the sin issue, and the hope that I can live with you forever in eternity… and be with all the people and things that will make my heaven…. a real tangible heaven…. but the most important thing I understand is…that heaven is wherever you are, Lord… visit my blog….littleraventhepoet.blog……

..Sincerely, Frank Payton…

The Latin word EX NIHILO… out of nothing…. not even pre-existing material or a divine substance…. Let There Be flowers and there were flowers…. show me a greater power… a power more worthy… considering everything else that God the father has done through His Son, and through the Holy Spirit… we have life only because of God….
