EVERY WONDERED WHAT GOD WANTS?
God is a rather very private person to be the creator sustainer of the universe. What is it that he is really after? Is there something that he has decided is the best of all things?
“If I were hungry, I would not tell thee: for the world is mine, and the fullness thereof.” (Psalms 50:12) “It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honor of kings is to search out a matter.” (Proverbs 25:2) “Verily thou art a God that hides thyself, O God of Israel, the Savior.” (Isaiah 45:15)
Well, let’s be kings and see if we can search out the question above. I mean, it would be an answer coming from the greatest being in the universe. Yeshua (Jesus) put it this way, “This is eternal life; that they might know you the only true God and Yeshua the Messiah whom you have sent.” So God has decided that getting to know him, is all it takes for eternal life. What about Satan? Well according to Yeshua (Jesus) Statement, Satan who has met God personally does not know him, really!
There is another statement in Scripture that says, “That which may be known of God is clearly seen.” It goes on to explain this is understood by the things that are made. Since God said that he made man to be a glory to him and man was made to image and imitate God; we have an excellent place to look for information. In fact many of you may know that the whole life cycle of man, birth, growth, marriage, children and all of life’s troubles and triumphs speaks about God. Man was alone. A companion came from his chest, like himself to help rule over earth and they together makes copies of mankind. This seems nothing more than an imaging of God of whose bosom Jesus came and who together, bringing man in the fold will make copies of themselves, spiritually. Ok, try to keep up. This is different from what you might have heard. It is taken directly from the Bible.
To make him self a copy of YHVH’s family, a person has to learn not by FIAT but at least partially of themselves the very things God knows. It therefore must be a search by the ones whom YHVH, has appointed opportunities to remake themselves consciously and spiritually into what God is. Even Angels has desires to look more deeply into this, scripture says. It is also called the mystery of being like God (Godliness).
God determined that the best way for this to come about is for real Free will to exist. Time and chance must happen to all. What is going to happen today, do to the decisions of individuals could change at any moment. We must experience really bad things as well and good and inspiring things? We must develop the Character that the greatest being in the universe has, just like a fleshly child might be the spitting image of his father or mother. Children make us happy but not just because they imitate us because they make do things that we don’t like about ourselves.
The fact that God did not make robots to do every thing as he would like them to is very telling. Watch man, he is trying to make robots, as much like himself as possible. I guess you know he would never stop there. The next thing man would do as soon as possible is to make the robots so that they could have something resembling free will. Trust me!
Therefore, dos and don’ts as necessary as they are to those learning could not have been the main motivating desire of God to do all that we should as humans. What was? This is our original question. It could not be so that we can prophesy, speak in tongues and cast out demons or display other spiritual gifts. The Apostle Paul spoke about this. He said that the three things that will last is Faith Hope and Love. The Greatest of these he said is love (Called charity in KJV). In fact Paul explains that without love these things would not be a profit. Now we are getting somewhere.
Men and women, this is a great instruction for both this age and particularly for the next. It pleased God not to be alone. To just do right and have right things goings through our mind was not the best God would be please with. He wanted it to be freely done and out of love. Everything in the universe shows that when the laws of physics are broken, whatever operates by those laws ceases to function. If it is alive, it dies. Man broke the laws and deserved to die. To show his love, the creator Yeshua (Jesus) came and died in the place of humans. He then said that there is no greater love than for one person to give his life for another. No one worries about being mistreated by you, when they know that you would rather die for them than hurt them. Men, remember this is your calling in this life for your relationship with your wife. Women, it is not a putdown but rather an honor to live within the order God chose for you to act out his plan. Don’t be deceived by the world. God has determined what love is. Love towards God is his 1st four commandments and love towards your fellow human being is embodied in the last 6 commandments. God has determined that there is nothing Greater than love except YHVH himself. Love is of God and that is exactly what he desires and will receive eternally from his finally finished and newly created children. Love; there is no other inner attribute like it!
