The very first words God wanted recorded were “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” It is a really wonderful to look into His spiritual world and try to imagine what His side was like before all the physical things we know came into being.
I have read this quickly focusing on “… God created the heavens and the earth.” In my imagination I would continue going forward in His word seeing the sun suddenly with no other signs of light appear in the blackness of space. I would get caught up with the separation process of light from darkness, the forming of the earth, and the physical life forms coming forth. Also, God creating a physical form in His image and likeness if He were to have a physical form.
There is a key element in the first words God wanted recorded to us. “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” As with all things with God His desire for us to awaken to the invisible things is His choice of us discovering true life. Seeing it for ourselves is the most important thing to Him. The invisible that lives with us and us with it only appears in brief flashing moments. As your eyes drink in these words that crucial invisible thing is with you right where you are sitting, standing, or lying down.
God wanted us to see the “…Beginning…“, but it is not the beginning you might be thinking of. All of mankind, including myself, have read these words drinking them into our eyes from the pages or hearing them spoken into our ears, but not perceiving or understanding the invisible vehicle they have traveled upon.
A train traveling down the railroad tracks has an engine in the front pulling behind it several other box cars with the last box car at the end called a caboose. Can you see this train in your mind? Now, imagine this train carrying in each box car every single word of God into your eyes traveling down into your soul. “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” Those words are traveling into your mind on the train of time from this screen to your eyes.
“In the beginning…” is a start of time invisible to us all. God wanted us to see the start of time. Our eternal God, Father of all things wanted us to see, hear, and feel through the vehicle of time. No other creature before us could experience anything through time. Time does not tick downward on the spirit side. Angels are not under the clock of time. We are given time and chance.
We are all born with time, a beginning of living, moving, and having our being. God creating the heavens and the earth is fantastic, but we have missed it all. We are born with a grace of time. This sentence always invokes the thoughts in my mind about some of the short lives of others, but is quickly covered by those before the age of accountability went straight back to heaven accepted inside immediately and those after the age of accountability their destiny is not mine to judge, but to accept the mystery of their time had certain meaningful effects.
Our eternal spirit is born into the “…beginning…” of time. Our spirit is completely submerged inside a body of time ticking downward to an end. Our spirit is born with a completely blank slate with no knowledge, but with a body with needs to be met in time. Our eyes, ears, nose, mouth, and skin operate totally within time for our eternal spirit to gather information for the purpose of making choices and decisions to be lived with throughout the timeless side of eternity.
What we may have missed in the first words God wanted recorded is not necessarily the creation of all things, but the “…beginning…” of the vehicle of time. We can see the sun, moon, stars, bodies of water, trees, animals, and people. They are all as plain as day in our physical eye sight, but we are missing the grace of time allotted to us and the train of box cars full of knowledge traveling into our soul.
Right now these words are climbing aboard the engine of your sight, filling each box car with each of these words behind it, leaving this page onto the railroad tracks of your sight, traveling into your eyes, connecting with your soul, and you are absorbing them as knowledge to be decided upon.
Here is the crucial point that my words are not important that have traveled into your system, but it is the words of God that have traveled into your system. We are no longer blank slates like in the beginning. Our minds are full of the knowledge of good and the knowledge of evil. We have experienced and absorbed them through the vehicles of time.
I don’t know about you, but my mind is sitting back in reverence of fear of the grace of time I have been shown and what my decisions have done with them. Angels did not get the luxury of experience things through a vehicle of time. Their decisions were eternal the very moment they made them with no turning back. No wonder angels want to look into our lives.
The first words God wanted us to know were “…the beginning…” of the vehicles of time. His spirit substance created physical forms wrapped in time. When we brought sin into our vehicles of time God put Himself, His Word, into a vehicle body wrapped in time to give us a passage back to Him through Jesus Christ born like as us.
When Jesus said, “…The words I have spoken to you—they are full of the Spirit and life.” (NIV, John 6:63) he was sending those words from his spirit on the train engine of their hearing pulling in each box car traveling inside their bodies connecting God’s Spirit and God’s life for them to have the knowledge to make their free will choice and decisions. This is why Jesus told Peter that flesh and blood did not reveal this to him, but God did (Mtt. 16:17). Peter’s spirit and God’s spirit made the connection of oneness understanding.
Every second our eyes, ears, nose, mouth, and skin are drinking in things on the vehicle of time traveling from things of this world to our eternal spirit making choices about those things that will impact where we will live after the grace of our time runs out (our body dies). This is why I do not allow any religion to dictate to me their man made ideas or traditions of God’s word. If God says something that is contrary to the way things are being done. I simply swallow my vehicle of time’s pride, change, and follow what His eternal word says.
This changes everything for me. Everything I take inside is logged with a time stamp and my decision categorizes what it means to me and how it will affect my eternity. Wow, I can see the train of my eye sight pulling up to the words of God, allowing them on board in each box car, the train pulling out on the tracks of my eye sight, headed towards my eyes, going into the tunnels, reaching the city of my soul, and all those passengers representing God’s words of spirit and life getting out inside either becoming one with me like seeds in good soil, here to stay, and grow or passing through like visitors going on their way (Mtt. 13:16-23).
What will you do and what will I do from now on with God’s words being alive and full of His Spirit? This is why I absolutely love God. He took me from my evil ways full of hate, revenge, and never satisfied to being born again with a second chance to receive a new life.
I do not try to control God and His word. I want Him to be free as He has allowed me to be free in my choices. When I first started with the Lord I was under a certain religious persuasion. It was not wrong, but it was not completely fulfilled. I walk with the Lord every day not afraid to ask questions because I know He will guide me into all truth. When someone told me there is no record of anyone being baptized in the name of Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit I was not afraid to search God and His word. I want God’s word to live, move, and have it’s being inside of me.
I read this in God’s word, “Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off—for all whom the Lord our God will call.” (NIV, Acts 2:38, 39) and it gave me truly a new life because all of my sins would be washed away in water baptism by the name of Jesus Christ applying his blood of forgiveness (the blood is in Jesus name) and receiving the Holy Spirit is a promise to all who are far off.
This has added a whole new meaning to the childhood song of:
O be careful little eyes what you see…O be careful little ears what you hear…O be careful little hands what you do…O be careful little feet where you go…O be careful little mouth what you say…There’s a Father up above And He’s looking down in love
So, be careful little eyes, ears, hands, feet, and mouth what you do
Everything comes to us on the grace of time traveling on the railroad tracks powered by our eyes, ears, nose, mouth, and skin feeding our eternal soul of this world’s information, but hidden are messages of God for us to see with our spirit the truth of eternal life. May you see the spiritual meanings God has specifically for you and the past the surface of religions in this world to His eternal way of life.
