Before there was separation,
there was One.
Our homegrown perspective defines this separation as “Creation” or “our known Universe”. For the sake of this story, the first cause of all we can perceive is labeled as God. God named himself “I-AM”.
I-AM is our key.
An extravagant work of beauty is found in allowing (moreover creating) choice… not to mention the freedom and self-awareness that can be opened no other way.
Growing out of this, we humans have boundaries we are born into. One of those is that we only gain knowledge by experience – even if some experiences are through our heart’s imagination.
God’s enemy (named “False-Accuser”) used our species as a trap… and his invention of lying (though cleverly masked as figurative language) grew out of his character, and led to a run on God’s throne. From that point forward; we have fed our addiction to the power of self-exaltation (which is a lie). This juggernaut of evil stretches its roots each time we fight to protect that power by silencing truth. But, we are getting ahead of ourselves.
Every society has some explanation for what was in place before all this life on earth – even if it’s a giant plate balancing on the back of infinite tower of turtles… all the way down.
The only truly foolish choice seems to be found in pretending none of it matters.
Our best scientific minds calculate that (traced far enough backwards) everything in our physical universe was so dense that mass and energy was infinite and unified.
God is One.

He called for his twelve… Jesus sent them out in pairs to announce God’s Kingdom, and to heal the sick. He gave them power and authority; He commanded them, “Don’t go where the outsiders are, and don’t enter into any city of the Samaritans. Instead, go to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. […]
He traveled back to Nazareth for a Sabbath Jesus followers being present kept the threats at a murmur, but attenders were astonished – trying to figure out how this nobody (whose family everyone knew) was doing and speaking unbelievable things. They were offended at him. Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor, […]
Evening of that same day he said, “Let’s go over to the other side of the lake”, and they left there by boat. They launched out, and sailed off as Jesus fell asleep on a cushion in the back of the boat. The winds grew heavier until a big storm had come down on the […]
One morning before church… Jesus’ group was picking some grain for breakfast, and a political-religious leader again accused them of “working on the sabbath.” Jesus tossed his accusation away using scripture (dismantling this guy’s foundation), “Haven’t you read what David did? …when he was hungry, and those who were with him? …How he entered into […]
John’s followers told him (in prison) what Jesus was doing. John sent them back, asking if Jesus is The One? In response to, “Should we look for someone else?”, Jesus replied with actions. Diseases, plagues and spirits were healed, and the blind given sight. Speaking to John’s followers, he said, “Go, tell John what you hear […]
Jesus went all over; teaching, healing and announcing the good news of eternity. People trailed behind him from everywhere (to touch him), because power came out of him – and healed them all! As the crowds grew; Jesus looked at them with compassion; They were bullied and scattered. He told his followers, “The harvest indeed […]
Back in his new home town… It felt like the whole town was waiting on the beach for Jesus. Then the unbelievable happened, a community church ruler, named Jairus, fell down at Jesus feet… worshiping him, and begging for his 12 year old daughter’s life. He told Jesus, “Please! Come and lay your hands on […]
Fifty days after that table-flipping Passover… this celebration started on the way from Galilee – and grew in to Jerusalem. Little can compare to the lively thankfulness and satisfaction of a people’s summer wheat harvest celebration! On top of that, being the 10 Commandments holy day, we talked about Moses giving I-AM’s law. The […]
Walking through town, Jesus did the one thing no one expected (again). The teacher and his swarm of followers passed by Matthew sitting at his tax collector’s desk. Then; as if he was asking for a cup of water, Jesus looked at him and said, “Follow me!” Matthew got straight up, left everything sitting […]
One day; Jesus was walking down by the sea. Noticing a crowd around him, he climbed up a mountain side. Finding a level place to teach his followers, he said, Blessed are the spiritually poor, because God’s Kingdom is theirs. Blessed are you who are hungry now, because you will be filled. Blessed are those […]
