We Are Too Focused on the “Physical Things” in This World…in Our SPIRITUAL Paths (Part 1)
Have we, as Mankind, focused too much on OBTAINING….POSSESSING….GETTING things; rather than focusing on just EXISTING….BEING…HARMONIZING with the world we were put in? This is something to seriously consider, when it comes to evaluating Mankind….in evaluating ourselves, as individuals.
The Creator…God (Devum, Jehovah, Yahweh) gave Mankind the gift of freewill. With this freewill, He allowed for us to have the ability to make choices. Many want to blame God for the existence of terrible things in this world. But the bottomline is, He does not force us to believe in Him. He loved us so much, as to trusting us to make the right choices. And it is not like once we make one bad choice, that He does not gives us another chance. We have this opportunity everyday to make this choice. A Creator does not conform to the ways of His Creation, does He? No. He is beyond the boundaries and parameters of His Creation.
The truth of the matter is that evil wanted Mankind to be confined to the boundaries to which it can control. And we as Mankind, HAD/HAVE THE CHOICE of confining ourselves to them; in ways of violence, conditional love, anger, wrath, pride, and unforgiveness. In the Garden of Eden, how did evil tempt Adam and Eve to sin or rebel against God, the Creator? By telling them that they can OBTAIN KNOWLEDGE TO THAT OF GOD, HIMSELF; so that they can know as much as God knows. To live in accordance to God’s Divine Laws of Love, Mankind has to recognize, and make the choice that they are spiritually bound to God, first and foremost. And that He will provide, sufficiently for our existence, to fulfill His Will of the life He gave us to live. So what did Adam & Eve do? They CHOSE to pursue evil’s way; of denying their spiritual connection to what God instructs all of Mankind to pursue for their wellbeing; and confine Mankind, themselves….to the earthly realm, to which it controls and manipulates. God makes it very clear, that His Ways are not of the world’s ways, but beyond.
When we examine the world, what do we see? We see poverty, extremes of wealth, slavery in all forms, killing, stealing, cheating, etc. Do you think God, the Creator (Devum, Jehovah, Yahweh) wanted this for Mankind and all of His Creations? He created all out of such great love! And Mankind was given dominion over it all. With the souls given to each Man, since the time they were conceived in their mothers’ wombs, God laid His Thumbprint on each person. With the way the world exists today, we have shown that we CHOSE to have those things exist, through the choices we made, with the influence of evil, in steering us away from our Spiritual Connection with the Creator; and chose to confine ourselves to its realm, which are within this PHYSICAL realm.
Look at what we decided to focus on. Instead of strengthening our connection with the Creator, we decided to chase after SUCCESS on this earth through OBTAINING wealth ; power; pleasure in the physical forms . Though we were created to exist…to be in harmony with the world around us; not one any more superior than the other creation (as seen in the initial days of Adam & Eve)…we chose to fall to the same sin that Lucifer did, pride. We chose we wanted to be greater than our neighbor. We chose to want to be “equal in stature” to the God, who created all that we see (in the natural sense), into existence. We chose to purse our lusts and gluttony, at all costs. That rebelled against The Creator….God’s (Devum, Yahweh, Jehovah) Divine Laws of Love. We chose to follow Satan’s ways of Violence, Conditional Love, and Unforgiveness…to obtain…to possess the physical things in this world. Instead of chosing to follow our spiritual existence, and listening to what God guides, to His Will and Purpose of our lives. The difference between Lucifer and Mankind is that Mankind is still given the choice to choose otherwise, until the last breath in their human bodies. Jesus Christ, (Yeshuay, Yeshu Christu), as His Son, came to live to show us a ways of life that is worthy to enter Eternal Paradise; and died to conquer evil’s unchallenged rule over Mankind, to permanently unshackle it from evil. The choice was given back to us, to have that direct connection back with the Father of Creation (God, Yahweh, Jehovah, Devum).
