The Beginning of…

the Bible

In the beginning…

The very first three words in the Holy Bible, “In the beginning”. That short phrase has so much power within it.

I looked at the words over and over. I say them over and over to myself, “In the beginning”. The words of God, goes on to say, “God created the heaven and the earth”. But it’s the words “in the beginning, they have me in awe. In the beginning of time, after everything….  then, God created Adam and Eve.

“In the beginning”. It means something; matter of fact it means a lot. God could have said, “first or before, or even I created it all. He could have even said, I created man last or the heaven and earth was the first thing, but instead He said, “in the beginning”. We all have a beginning. What is a beginning? Lots of things have a beginning, all things have a beginning. All things have an origin.

Beginning is life.

The beginning of a life.

The beginning of you.

The beginning of self.

The beginning of growth.

The beginning of understanding.

The beginning of – No.

The beginning of – Yes.

The Beginning of your life, the Bible is the beginning of your life. It has your story; it has my story and everybody else’s story. But the story of your life is just the beginning, because it will continue, long after the fact… The Bible has you covered. There has to be a beginning for everything that ever existed on earth and in the earth. There is only one of us, but we have several beginnings. When I say several beginnings, I mean several beginnings which fit into your one life. We only have but, one life but many beginnings. Many beginnings to self. Self is you and all of you. No one else can be you, or live your life for you, as you. It has to be you and only you. Because of the things and circumstances; we may often wish we could live another life or become someone else, but we can’t. Our beginning is ours, and so is our end. Say for instance when we mess up, or something happens we wish we could change, or could have changed. We can’t. Say for instance you caused a serious car wreck and someone was killed, don’t you wish you could have changed the situation? You Can’t. You may have said something hurtful, accidentally did something wrong or made a terrible mistake, and could you take it back? No. You may say if only I had…

If I, just could have…

That all goes back to the beginning.

“In the beginning”.

Just think. For example, when Eve ate of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. For her, that was her beginning of a sad and fearful life. The beginning of emotions, the beginning of confusion, the beginning of sadness, the beginning of problems and so on. If she had only obeyed the instructions of God.  I can imagine how she must have felt; I can even imagine how Adam must have felt. The regret, the pain, heartache, the grief, the isolation, the loss of their best friend, their Daddy’s trust.

But in this life, beginnings can good for some and bad for others. The beginnings of mistakes. The beginnings of triumphs. The beginnings of victories, and failings. When God created Adam and Eve, I am sure He knew the possibilities of failures on the part of Adam and Eve. He created them to be prefect. When the beginning of something awful creeps in, then there is a possibility that everything can become spoiled or rotten. It can be considered messed up or sinful. There can be a beginning to sin in our lives. Something sinful happened. That’s the beginning of sin for each of us. There’s always a beginning to something, and for something,in this life we live.

Was that sin when Eve did the thing she was not supposed to do? Yes. When we do things we are not supposed to do, is it sin or just bad judgment? Both.

Can sin be both bad and good? No. Sin is sin and God hates sin!

But that brings into the subject another question; what is your story?  As you begin to read the Bible and share in the stories of all the people in the Bible, you will begin to find yourself. If you read long enough you will find yourself, and your beginning.  You will identify with the person in the Bible that has your attitude, your thought process, and your willingness to obey or not obey. You will find reminders of your life. Reminders of the life of someone you know. But no matter what you are there.

God created one of all. But we all have sinned in one form or another. The only difference is that, some of us may know how to control it better than the other person. Like King Solomon said,  “That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God require that which is past”.  That means nothing is new to begin with. God will require an answer from you for whatever reason, concerning your sins.

Let us understand that the beginning of sin is the beginning of our demise. We accept life as it is, never to correct our sinful self. We go on each day living in sin, never to repent, but it will stop one day. That will be the beginning of our end.  We must make a new beginning to please God. Why wouldn’t you want too? There is always someone whom we seek to please; husband, wife, children, boss, whomever we love the most or whoever we believe to be in authority. We seek to please. But God is the universes’ Authority. He is the Ultimate Authority, some choose to believe that, and some choose not to believer that.

You are always given the chance to begin to live for Christ, the Master behind the Beginning! God, Jehovah in the beginning, also gave us birth of a righteous mind to understand all that is good and pleasing to Him. It is time we use our minds and bodies to serve Him in all His glory. He gave it all to us first, so why not give it all back to Him. The best thing in this life He gave to us. So now give it back. Show God we appreciate His mercy and grace.

One thing God gave Adam and Eve was credit for cursing us all. He let us know the reason for all the troubles we have. God even warned us about satan , and how he convinced Eve to sin. God has no secrets and tricks to cause us to sin. We do it all by ourselves as Eve did. We like it because as Eve did, she saw…

“She saw that the tree was good for food and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit, thereof and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.”

This is what that passage tells me; in the beginning her eyes “saw” that the tree was food, food is something we need to live. But we don’t need sin to live. Plus the food looked good to her eyes, something she desired to have such as a fine piece of jewelry. Have you ever eaten something that just melted in your mouth, a good piece of chocolate? A tree to be desired, something to be desired, such as a million dollars. Did she know the meaning of the word wise or did satan plant the thought in her mind when he told her, then your eyes shall be opened, and you shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. Did that make her want it more? So after he told her that; she ate!!! Did satan make her eat or was it something she wanted to do all along?

I’ll tell you what; satan can’t make you do something you do not want to really do! So she wanted to eat it and she did, even causing Adam to eat of the tree too.

In your mind’s eye what do you see? A woman ready to sin. A woman ready to cause someone else to sin.  A woman who did not want to do what was good and right. That was a new beginning for the both of them. For us too. One they wish they could have taken back a trillion times. God sent them both away from Him. One day we will stand before God, and some will be turned away from Him also. Don’t play around with satan in the garden you will pay! Adam and Eve were given the opportunity to obey His law and His command, not to eat of the tree.

So I ask you now – Get your beginning right. Right now! Try by beginning to understand Christ God Our King.  Your beginning started a very long time ago, In Christ Our Lord and Creator.

What’s Going On? What’s Not Going On?

Too much going on, but not enough, of what’s not going on.

That statement may seem somewhat odd, but I assure you it is not. I can show you a million things, that’s, going on today. Let’s see, here’s some examples:

1. The trial of Major Nidal Hasan, the Army psychiatrist accused of killing 13 people and wounding dozens more in a Fort Hood shooting rampage, was temporarily halted today when a lawyer objected that Hasan was putting up no defense in an effort to get himself executed.

2.   Python That Killed 2 Boys Was Kept in House, Not in Pet Store  – The python that strangled two young boys this week did not escape from the pet store below the apartment where the boys slept, as previously believed, but was a house pet kept inside the apartment where they were visiting friends, authorities in Canada said.

3.  US Consumer Borrowing Rose $13.8 Billion in June  –  Americans borrowed more in June to buy cars and attend schools. But they were frugal again with their credit cards, indicating many are still wary of taking on high-interest debt.

4.  Cash-strapped Greek Animal Shelter Lets Online Users Kill Animals  -The current financial crisis in Greece has wide-ranging consequences for everyone, including their animal population.

5. Vandals Mark Racial Slurs, Images On Jackie Robinson Statue  — Vandals defaced a statue of Jackie Robinson outside the Brooklyn Cyclones baseball stadium, marking racial slurs and symbols on it, park and police officials said Wednesday.

6.  Ex-madam, seeking New York City office, faces prescription drug charges – A self-described “ex-madam” who claims she supplied fellow city comptroller candidate Eliot Spitzer with escorts several years ago is facing charges of illegally distributing prescription drugs, authorities said.

7.  What do pope’s remarks on gays mean? – Pope Francis ignited a firestorm on the Internet with a few words about gay and lesbian people that seemed to suggest a new church position on homosexuality. I say “seemed to” because it would only appear new to someone who was unfamiliar with the old position.

8. Over 48 years, GOP Strays Far From Voting Rights –  “Our country has changed,” wrote Chief Justice John Roberts on June 25, 2013, when five of the nine Supreme Court Justices dismantled the historic Voting Rights Act.

9. Castro a psychopath who will never feel remorse – “There are so many ways of being despicable it quite makes one’s head spin. But the way to be really despicable is to be contemptuous of other people’s pain.” — James Baldwin

10. Yemen foils a plot to attack ports, oil and gas facilities, official says –  Why is Yemen a focus of terror threat?

11.  Sun’s magnetic field about to flip, causing “ripple effect” – You won’t be able to see it, but it might affect the Earth’s climate — the sun’s magnetic field is going through a big change.

12. North Korea expanding Yongbyon nuclear complex, U.S. Institute says– A U.S.institute tracking North Korea’s nuclear weapons program says recent satellite photos show Pyongyang is doubling the size of its uranium enrichment plant, jibing with the country’s announced plans to expand technology that can be used both to create energy and the core of nuclear weapons.

13. Cyclospora outbreak may have multiple sources – The number of cyclospora cases has risen to over 400, as the FDA says it believes at least some of the cases may have been caused by a salad mix from a Mexican processing plant. What caused the widespread outbreak remains a mystery. Carter Evans reports.

14. How did low-level employees access national secrets?  – Whatever the motives of whistleblowers Edward Snowden and Bradley Manning, the obvious question that both these cases raise is how is it that an Army private and one of the guys on the National Security Agency’s IT help desk could wind up with access to some of the nation’s most closely guarded secrets?

15. Study finds modern word choices reflect a more self-centered culture Does anyone ever use the word “oblige” anymore?  The way in which the English language and word use changes over time says a lot about how Americans and Britons have become more self-centered, according to a new UCLA study released Wednesday.

I think you might have gotten  the idea about  all the things  going on around us daily…                                                          

But, we need to know some very important things about what’s not going on! When I say “what’s not going on, I mean: The things that should be important to us, that we give the least attention! We often neglect the things that should have a major hold on us. Rather it’s seen today or unseen today. Things in the natural realm or things in the spiritual realm. Things that have a major effect on our lives, right now today or in the distant future. Let me help you with that..

Say for instance a great storm came today, tomorrow or this week. Some of us will be prepared, but most of us won’t. Just say you have an underground tunnel built somewhere hoping to be saved. But let’s say the storm was so major that it destroyed everything, and I mean everything! What can you do? What can you say? After all the preparation, you still didn’t survive. Then What?

So may I ask, how are you with Jehovah Elohim? How are you with God our Creator and Saviour? How have you stood up for Him? How have you served Him? How have you lived for Him? How have you honored Him? How did you worship Him? How ? How? Did you try to lead other to Him as their Saviour?  Did you consider Our Lord being someone of interest and importance? Did you make time for Him, daily? How did you honor Him? Well you kinda get the idea.  Well the simplest way to honor God Yeshua is by, getting you a Holy Bible, studying it and living it on a daily basis. That’s the basic step. Next find you a serious church, that teaches the principles and concepts of God and Jesus Christ. If the church is the real church, and not one of the false churches, then you will grow in Christ. Now if the church asks for money all the time, for unnecessary reasons, and tells  you gonna get rich, then I’d think twice. Before the riches, money and fame, there has to be Christ Jesus. If it is teaching, that wealth comes before Christ, then run!
 FirstIsaiah 55:6-7  “Seek the Lord while He may be found, Call upon Him while He is near. v.7 Let the wicked forsake his way, And the unrighteous man his thoughts;  Let him return to the Lord, and He will have mercy on him; And to our God, For He will abundantly pardon.
Second, Matthew 7:7 Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. v.8 For everyone who asks receives, and he who knocks it will be opened. v.9 Or what man is there among you who, if his son or daughter asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent?
 Third, Luke 19: 10 for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.
 Fourth, John 7:34 “You will seek Me, and not find Me,  and where I go you cannot come.”
Fifth, Philippians 2:21 For all seek their own, not the things which are of CHRIST JESUS.

Biopsychologist Says Religion Could Disappear by 2041 Because People Will Have Replaced God with Possessions –

  • Dr Nigel Barber’s book debunks the popular belief that religious groups will dominate atheistic ones because they collectively have more children
  • He said the market for formal religion is being squeezed by modern substitutes such as sport and entertainment in more developed countries
  • Added that atheists are heavily concentrated in richer countries and religion will decrease as individuals’ personal wealth increases
    Religious people in many developed countries will be a minority by 2041, according to one Irish biopsychologist.
    A study into the beliefs of people living in 137 countries, which forms the basis for a new book, found atheism increases in more developed places as people become increasingly materially rich.
