Our heavenly Fader and his children.
Imagine a man gets a wife and she gives birth to their child. Maybe it cries, but she understands what it means and takes care of it the way a good mother should do. Later it tries to say some words and they are just glad to hear that and tries to talk with it a little.
They wouldn’t say that what you say is wrong, so you’d better shut up. Neither would God. Jesus said that when you, who are evil, knows how to give your children good gifts, how much more shall our heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him for it. He gives us his Word from heaven and the Holy Spirit reveals it for us. In this way he raises us, teaches us and takes care of us as his children.
Jesus is the last Adam.
The first Adam lived in fellowship with God, but fall out of it and was condemned to death. There is talk of a man and his wife, but sin and death penetrate to every human being. But Jesus lived a sacred and sin free life here on Earth. Yet he was condemned to death, but he died for us all, he sacrificed his body to take away our sin and pay for our debts. But he was without sin, so death could not hold him, he rose from the death on the third day, assembled his disciple and gave them the Mission Commandment, but they should stay in Jerusalem, until they got what was promised from heaven.
Then he was taken up to heaven and sat by the Father’s right hand and then he sent the Holy Spirit to his disciples. And they went out and preached the gospel to anyone they met.
This is how God reconciled the world to himself. On that basis we get into such a relationship with God as the people were in before the fall of sin, but now Christ is the last Adam, who is from heaven and that for us has become a life-giving spirit. God creates us in Christ and then he creates us in accordance with the second creation story, in 1. Mos. 2.
The gospel of Jesus is the right solution to our fundamental problems.
In our daily life we face problems, this is quite natural and it is crucial to manage to solve problems, both in practical work and in social relations between humans, in education, science and technology. So it is crucial to be able to solve problems and create something that is valuable to us.
But when it comes to fundamental thinking, the world has problems with itself. The solution is the gospel of Jesus Christ, he is the word of God and the Holy Spirit revelations that makes us know him and that makes us know God. He is a good Father that will take care of us as his children and in that way he cares about what he has created.
“Faith and entropy”, theology – philosophy – science.
I already have two other sites on WordPress, on tsivert.com I have reported from Christian meetings where there have come messages from heaven as translations of “speak in tongues”, all the way back to 1990. On the web-hotel blehost944 I have written longer cronicles about Christianity, theology, philosophy, science, prophesies and history in the Bible and church-history.
In the middle age there was a dispute about universalis, like dog, man, was this the real thing or was it only partikularia like Snoopy and John that existed. When the new natural science was developed, another dispute replaced it, was the method empiric (a view-point more like the partikularia view-point) or was it rationalistic (more like the universalis view-point). The conclusion is that it is both, it is hypothetically deductive.
In our time we can also think of quantum mechanics and compare particularia and empiri to an elementary particle and compare universalis and rationality to the wave-function. And compare a single person to an elementary particle. It is free to choose, but the wave-function is not changed. More generally we can think and believe that there are ideas behind it all that are not altered but determines what shall happen and what can happen.
In the Old testament a tribe or a people is called by the name of their forefather, like Israel, Juda, Efraim, Manasse, Edom and so on. So the name of a particular man (particularia) man is used for a whole people, more like a universalis, then. This suits with modern genetics and the text has obviously an understanding of the struggle for life. So what evolution theory is not as strange to this as it often is presented. But the conclusion is that God is creating the evolution anyway.
My point now is that as we are reconciled with God, we can think of agriculture, fishery, economy, science and technology as cultivating and protecting the garden of Eden and eat from the fruits on the trees. Then it is not a good idea to choose to eat form the tree that gave knowledge of good and bad (morality), the result was that they could no longer choose from the trees in the garden, the end of the story was death. So it is much better to choose to eat from the other trees. Nowadays we have many subjects at schools and universities, with many ideas that are like universalis. I think of this as the trees in the Garden of Eden. As long as you don’t eat from the tree that gives knowledge of good and bad (moral philosophy) you are free to choose fruit from the different trees. Similarly you can pick a topic from a subject and use it for your good. And likewise you can choose to pick a fruit from the tree that gives eternal life. Jesus is the Word of God, when we choose to believe in him, we find we find that he gives us spirit and life.
Bluehost944.com is called “Faith and Entropy”, entropy is a measure of disorder, in any energy-process the total entropy is increased, so it will be more and more disorder. Locally the entropy may decrease, if only it increases more outside. Anything that is of value to us has a certain kind of order and we work to make such values. When we try to learn something, we establish a kind of order in our minds, our brains and our hearts, but we know very little about how this information is represented and stored. Then the ideas in our minds may become quite different form what we see around us, but with such good ideas we can make something that is of value for us in our surroundings.
We can very well believe that God originally created there is, that he originally made that high order. And when we reconcile with him, he will do his work inside us with his Word and his Spirit. Jesus is the Word of God and when we believe in him, we get an order in our mind, in our hearts and in our brains, in our thinking. This is of great value to us, both for this life and for eternity, because in Jesus we get eternal life.
