Thus says the LORD, the King of Israel, And his Redeemer, the LORD of hosts: 'I am the First and I am the Last; Besides Me, there is no God.' Isaiah 44:6 (NKJV)
Welcome to Cosmic Reflections, a journey that explores the intricate interplay between science and The Truth. Here we will endeavor to explore God's timeless cosmological framework, we will attempt to reveal The Truth of His intentional and intelligent design along with the perfect precision of his making that we might see.
The transcendental image of Him throughout creation and in all things, at all times and throughout every vaulted space. Everything has been and is imbued with and only through and because of His authorship. Who is He that is, was and always will be?
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. 3 Then God said, "Let there be light"; and there was light. 4 And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. Genesis 1: 1-4 (NKJV)
He is the Father of The Truth. He is our Father in Heaven, the First Being, the Alpha, the Omega. He is Yahweh Elohim. He is that being that is beyond the mind, he governs the council of elders. He is the first tone, The God of Abraham, Isaac, David, Noah, Moses and he is the father of Jesus Christ.
1 God has taken his place in the divine council; in the midst of the gods he holds judgment: 2 “How long will you judge unjustly and show partiality to the wicked? Selah3 Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute.4 Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.” 5 They have neither knowledge nor understanding, they walk about in darkness;all the foundations of the earth are shaken. 6 I said, “You are gods, sons of the Most High, all of you; 7 nevertheless, like men you shall die, and fall like any prince.” 8 Arise, O God, judge the earth; for you shall inherit all the nations. Psalm 82 English Standard Version (ESV)
We have been told that there are none before Him and none like Him.
For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation, having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace, and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity. And He came and preached peace to you who were afar off and to those who were near. For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father. Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone, in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit. Ephesians 2:14-22 (NKJV)
God sent us his one of a kind son - The Truth - which was, is and always will be the unearned gift of our Father of The Truth - the gift of profound grace and eternal life found only through The Truth.
16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. 18 He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. John 3:16-18 (NKJV)
There is no other Father of The Truth that sent us The Truth that we might be saved by the hope of His salvation.
For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation, having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace, and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity. Ephesians 2: 14-16 (NKJV)
There are no other entities or beings that freely give Humanity The Truth - an opportunity, option and choice. All other entities are in rebellion to the will of Yahweh Elohim - there has been and is a spiritual insurgency underway the intent is to usurp that which mankind has been given, to gain control and obfuscate and hide that the Truth - that the other side is doomed to fail regardless of their efforts and alliances and "signs and wonders".
Is our species really so arrogant to think that The Author, Creator, God himself would not know to defeat any insurgency? Would He be so naive as to recognize to counter an insurgency requires another insurgency - a broad spectrum long war strategy with capacities beyond the mind and will of the rebellious followers of the evil one.
Would He not hide keys, gates and other elements for His claim and use? Would He not collect and gather irrefutable dispositive evidence once and for all for the administration and adjudication of final judgements?
Would He not be expert at hiding in plain sight in highly sophisticated, embedded and integrated ways that are outside of human understanding - and outside of humanity's access to time and space?
The good news for the faithful is that we don't just have the word's of God, we have his signature written within each one of us, we have His will, His love, His strength, His brilliance and His plan - whether we realize it, accept it or know it. That's The Truth.
26 Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth." 27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28 Then God blessed them, and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth." Genesis 1: 26-28 (NKJV)
We are invited to seek and find The Truth by accepting that The Truth is that The Author of His story joined the story He authored. Think about writing a story yourself - think about the life you lived that brought you to the point of authoring a story. Think about how you crafted the story before you actually created the story. Think about the story before it begins, when it begins, as the narrative forms, the crisis that starts the action, the characters, the protagonists, the antagonists, the betrayals, the joys, the successes, the difficulties the momentum of the story itself, the arc's of the characters the plots the complexity of the story in well written stories is hidden isn't it? And the beautiful resolutions and revelations that great stories provide us. The author is even sometimes surprised by how the story ends up - especially in the great stories. And once the story is written the author puts it away and occasionally reads the story - knowing how it will turn out. The words on the pages? Do the the assemblage of letters and characters and numbers no the meaning of the story they are the constituent parts of? Well do they? Of course not.
The Author must take great joy in the process of The Truth being revealed within, to and beyond the story itself. He knows what will happen and gives every letter, number, sentence, paragraph and character the chance to learn how the story will turn out. We all have a choice today - and with that choice we are given the chance to experience life beyond the pages within His story - we are invited to join Him!
That is a beautiful story and we are that story - and He is The Author of that story - that story which is "beyond the mind". Every story is beyond the mind of the characters within the story. This story is beautifully constructed in such a way that we are invited to participate with the Author within the story and to join the Author beyond the story. That is astonishing.
In this story composed in its entirety by The Author, The Truth was sent to earth, lived among us, testified and was murdered and rose from the dead. The lesson for each of us is that The Truth lives and is beyond the reach of lies and will return. The Truth will return to man and man will return to The Truth.
God has given us The Truth in writing through a highly integrated and sophisticated message system from he that is beyond the mind, beyond time, beyond space - an extraterrestrial source outside of time. The Holy Bible.
The bible is the story of us, authored by God himself. What we have with the holy scriptures is a highly advanced messaging system within the story itself!
Then He sent himself in character form into the story of us He created and His character lived among us, witnessed to us and became dispositive evidence of The Truth in a character named Yeshua,
As characters within His story we have had great difficulty in recognizing that we are written words on his pages. We have great difficulty in comprehending the sophisticated integrated messaging system he provides us - the choice and chance we are given, the chance we have to become more than characters in His story - to join with Him for all time. Our choice and chance has been hidden by the evil one - the rebellion has been underway for quite sometime. The spiritual insurgency rages on.
Perhaps that would be too much for letters and words and information to comprehend - and yet we are invited to seek and see The Truth through the acceptance of what is beyond the mind - that His son is Jesus Christ. That God's son is The Truth. That we are characters within God's story and even we - words on his pages - have been given the opportunity to be more than simply text on paper and to have life which is beyond what we experience in this life. The Truth is the word of God brought to life - and The Author does not make mistakes in and with his craftsmanship.
Here I invite you to join me as I piece together my myriad personal lived experiences of traversing human and cosmic terrain through the lens cosmic reflections of our Author, God, his divine grace, as an exploration of the infinitely profound nature of His story.
Today I owe all that I am and ever will be to our Creator for the breath of life and the truth which is in my heart which I am thankful to have been freely given by accepting The Truth into my life having been baptized and saved by the blood of Yeshua M'shiha, which is Aramaic for Jesus Christ.
It is for this reason I am sharing the insights I have been given. I am simply one follower of Jesus Christ. I am thankful that I have had the vital spiritual experiences that I have received. These experiences have and continue to guide me. Like many among us my journey was one of rote belief, non-belief and then a transitory process of belief, repentance, knowing, reconciliation and refinement.
God absolutely exists and we are not accidents and blobs easily replicated in a lab by human beings. The Holy Bible, the word of God, is not just a bunch of made up stories. Yes, The Father of Truth sent is son, Jesus Christ - The Truth to earth, where he was born, lived, walked The Truth and taught The Truth among us, was crucified - Told us The Truth about ourselves, and rose from the dead - telling us The Truth about himself and will return once again.
The purpose of this blog is to serve as a source of inspiration for me as I enjoy artistic expressions while marveling at the miracle of being a being that God created in his image and loves. That is profoundly amazing to me. I share in service to others in that perhaps something I write might be helpful to others who may be lost or are simply seeking the truth. I share the good news with others that they might experience the affirmation of the will of God in their own hearts and lives and repent and receive God's abundant grace and love freely offered to each of us through his son, Jesus Christ.
This journey serves as a call to action for non-believers, believers and seekers alike, encouraging them to embrace the profound reality that we are not accidents, that we are purposeful creations of God.
Whether grounded in faith, on a quest for truth, or harboring skepticism, remember that every exploration, whether scientific or spiritual, holds the promise of transformation and revelation of The Truth rooted in the loving intentionality of the One, God of Abraham, the Alpha and the Omega, the Creator of all beings, all things, all time and all space.
