Our Nature

Millions of people testify to know who God is.
Millions of people testify to know who Christoper Columbus is.

Yet, not a single American alive today has ever:

met him.
held him.
shook his hand.
sailed across the sea with.
shared a cup of coffee with.
heard him laugh.

In the same way, millions today, fail to understand the difference between ‘knowing of’, and ‘knowing’.

The clear difference between the two are first hand experience vs second hand experience.

Those ‘knowing of’ a person:

Will be able to answer many questions about the person, his life, his voyages, his dob/dod, discoveries made, career choices, marriage information, # of kids, school attended, etc..which can ALL be acquired from second hand experience.
Example, a person could describe all the things above that are related to a specific person from reading a book about that person.

But only those who ‘know’ / or have a relationship with a person, could say or describe the following:

when they met him.
how they met him.
could relate a personal experience, or various experiences they shared with, where they went, activities they engaged with.
the way he held a cup while drinking
the posture while walking or sitting
the manner in which he smiled
could describe the sound of his voice.
could describe his vibration, character, personality,
could describe the sound of his laughter
did they have a loving or hateful spirit?
what made them smile from ear to ear?

These details can only be discovered from first hand experience.

So then why are so many people claiming to know God, when they really do not??

Here are some of my theories:

Because none of us want to be left out.
ALL of us desire to be loved by Almighty God. To admit one does not know God, one presumes they cannot be loved by God, and are not loved by God.
Because every single one of us has been formed and given Life by Almighty God, to admit we do not know Him, is to admit our ignorance and even worse our neglect.

To admit we do NOT have a relationship with God is PAINFUL. It means we have turned our back on the ONE who has never done us wrong. It means we are guilty of denying He that has never lied to us, forsook us, or led us astray. Worse of all it means we have neglected the SOLE reason we have this blessed life and all in it.

To verbalize, by admission that we do not have a relationship with God, is to admit our abnormality, our retardation, our grandest failure to date. It is to admit we are wrong. It is to admit we cannot see Truth. It is to profess many things, yet arrive at nothing. It is to have a life filled with innumerable things, yet exist as empty as a vase with no flowers.

The only way to change, is through admission. The only way to admit something is to perceive it’s reality.

Reality Of Humankind

IT IS OUR NATURE, to have a relationship with ALMIGHTY GOD.

My aim is to help others make sense of their own lives, by sharing the failures and misfortunes of mine. Misfortune and failure lead a man to the unmistakable clarity of his deception- That there is no need, nor room for God, because he himself is self sufficient, well educated, rich and capable. The more the man stays his ground, holding fast to his position- the more suffering he shall bring into his life. Suffering is the ground upon which elimination of the false occurs and perception of the Truth begins. After enough time is spent courting Misery, Pain, Humiliation, Slavery, Emptiness, one seeks to stop the bleeding. Some men prefer to bleed their way to death rather than admit their ignorance; that their way will never work. While other men, surrender, which is the beginning of knowledge. By surrendering the man does not fall, he rises and steps foot upon the path of Eternal Wisdom and Truth. It is the path that leads to Eternal Life- the pursuit of knowledge, is the pursuit of Almighty God- Man's Creator. *If you have questions, concerns, need direction, prayer, you may email me.* I do not charge for what Almighty God has given me freely.
