Where Were You When…
Is it possible for us to know what God knows? Is there capacity in our tiny brains to have all knowledge, all wisdom and all patience? Without patience is it possible to have all knowledge, all wisdom? We think not.
Is the earth round or flat? According to the Holy Bible it sounds like it is flat. Not only in Genesis 1 but again in Job 38 it sounds like the earth has a border, an edge. Does a pond continually overflow it’s banks or does the land and water work in harmony that the waters may be contained? What about a river, a stream or any other body of water? Doesn’t the land and water work together that both may have their place?
Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth?
Tell Me, if you have understanding. ~ Job 38:4 NKJB
Do we have the capacity to know where Light originates? Do we have the Mind of Christ to know where love originates? What about water or flowers or joy? From where do these come?
“Where is the way to the dwelling of light?
And darkness, where is its place,
That you may take it to its territory,
That you may know the paths to its home?
Do you know it, because you were born then,
Or because the number of your days is great? ~ job 38:19-21 NKJB
We know so little but puff ourselves up believing we know so much. When we find the humility to accept that we know not the origin of Light, flowers or the earth itself we have the ability to accept God as our Lord, as our Father and accept the thought that Jesus Christ is His Son. When we reach the point of absolute humility that it frightens us we may have reached the point called the fear of God.
As we humble ourselves in the fear of the Lord we have the ability to find the point of departure. We should find ourselves seeking the Mind of Christ, first, and once we do, Jesus Christ speaks to the secrets of Truth and Wisdom so that we may ask, first, His guidance for our endeavors. Is this not the way we find the path of discovery? The path that leads to God of all, the Great, I Am, whose door upon we knock, first, for the answer to be revealed.
Either the Scripture is the divine Word of God teaching us how to live and how to be a reflection of God, or it’s nothing more than a historical account of events.
