Who are You? Why were you born? Do You really know? PART ONE

A new year has begun!  I find it rather interesting that todays date is 01/02/2010  which is called a  Palindrome. It can be read forward or back ward.  

As this new year begins, the biggest question you should be asking yourself is not wether to diet or not, or what job you should be in, or what to eat today.  You should be asking, “Who am I?, Why was I born? Do I have a purpose?

Would it surprise you to know, that a Earth Shaking Plan was made for you?  That it is so awesome, so HUGE that just knowing this plan would change your life 100 percent?
Would you not want to KNOW why were born, and what is your purpose now and after death?

Let me tell you what it is NOT:
*It is not to  live a short span of days then die and turn into dust.
*It is not to be changed into a angel and waft around playing a harp in heaven.
              It is not anything you have imagined.

So why haven’t we heard of the real plan for our lives? 

 Because there are adversaries against us.  There is a spiritual world unseen by human eyes.  These dark spirits also known as Satan and his followers do exist!  They do not want you to know the truth, or the truth would change your focus, your drive and hope.  Their purpose is to deceive you, and keep you in the darkness!......
More on these beings and how they came to be in a new post.

Just as there are dark spiritual beings, there are also Perfect Spiritual beings.  God!  He is our creator.  And He is without flaw, without a beginning or end.  He has always been, and will always be.  He being all perfect in His Creations, and love, left us a “instructional manual”  it is called the bible.  But even people who read the bible cannot understand it unless they Believe!

2 Corinthians 4:
we do not use deception, nor do we distort the word of God. On the contrary, by setting forth the truth plainly we commend ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God. 3And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. 4The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.

Here we see that not just anyone can understand. Only those who BELIEVE!  The veiled is to mean they do not understand and thus are perishing!  We all perish if we do not understand our purpose!  The god of this age, is Satan!  Who does what?
He has blinded their minds so they will not understand the most awesome purpose of our lives!!

#1 Step one to knowing who you are  is to believe the bible is the inspired word of God.

Now why would we want to believe, that the words of the bible came from God?  Did not humans write the words?  Are not humans fallible and make errors?
Ahh, but you do not KNOW this God I worship, do you then?  For to KNOW God is to understand perfection and power and yes, LOVE like no other.

Perfect Love that our human minds do not comprehend.  So, this is exactly WHY God , our Creator, gave us a instruction manual to know Him, His purpose, and what is the Way!

The beginning of knowledge starts not in Genius, but in John 1.

 1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2He was with God in the beginning.
 3Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4In him was life, and that life was the light of men. 5The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood[a] it."

Here we find that there are two personages (for lack of a better word to call them)  The word, and God.  The word is the one who later became Jesus, and God is the one Jesus came to reveal to us, as the Father.  They are one, like a family is all called the same last name but they are different people in the one family.
This also shows us, that everything made on earth, was created by Jesus, the Word.  He spoke and it was so!  In Jesus is life, he begets life, and He is the Light, or the truth of word to all mankind.  He is the truth in a world of lies or darkness.  Satan, (or darkness) and his angels understand not this light of truth.  

#2  God is made up of two distinct personages at this point. This is another vital step to understanding who you are!

I must imagine that before man was made, a vast amount of time and planning was executed.  The Father and the word, who later became the first begotten son, Jesus.  Carefully planned all of creation.  This is what they do, God creates things!  They design, and give life.  They have a massive Plan.  They live and are, a life of giving, NOT as we do.  Humans live a life of "GET".  

We may try to give, but all of our giving is usually for some sort of reward.  We mostly think of ourselves first. 
 Ever see the commercial of two little boys at the kitchen counter. They both want a peanut butter sandwich, but only one slice of bread is left.  So the mother lets the older boy put the peanut butter on and says he can cut the bread in two.  So the brother does this with a big grin, as he cuts one slice slightly bigger than the other.
BUT, the wise mother, then says, the little brother gets to choose first!
;-)  Now don't tell me, you have never chosen the bigger or better looking piece for yourself.
This is humanity.

So, we know we must Believe first of all.

and we must believe the Bible is the inspired word of God given as a instructional manual to mankind.
And that God is a family of two at this  time.

So, the next question is,  What is the Holy Spirit?

Most christians believe it is a third person.  I have found nothing in the bible to say the God head is a trinity!  The word Trinity is not found anywhere.  

Back to John 1:1
“the Word” is translated  from Greek to “logos”  which means, “spokesman”, “word”.  Who is the Word, I mentioned already it is Jesus.  Look at verse 14, 

 14The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only,[a] who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

So we see that the word, “Jesus Christ” was spirit (John 4:24) and became flesh and blood.  God is Spirit!  At first was the Word, as the Word had not yet divested Himself of being a spirit to flesh.  And God who had not yet became the Father until Jesus had become His Son!  Two beings not three.  The Holy Spirit is the POWER of the God Head to do all things.  It is a part of God the Father and Jesus Christ, it is the life giving power, and knowledge that can be IN you IF you Believe and Trust God!
Let me note here, that wether you believe the Holy Spirit is a personage or the power of God is not relevant to believing in God.  You miss the whole point if you let this become a stumbling block to your spiritual growth in understanding the purpose of your life.  The Plan of God and the Awesome potential you can have.

So think about what I have just said.  We have two spiritual beings, ruling the whole universe, and then one of them gives up his spiritual state to actually be a flesh and blood human on earth.  WHY?  And WHY does then the GOD then be called The Father, and the Word Become Jesus Christ, The SON???
and why does He become known as Jesus the Son, the fist of many to come?   stayed tuned.  .........  

I plan on covering a lot of new things this year.  From Why we were born, to our partaking in the most tremendous life in God’s Plan of the universe. More about how evil spirits came to be, more on the Holy Spirit, and why does evil things happen to good people, and that God is in control every day.
