The Living Soul
"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth..."
...and so begins the saga of humanity in this present world. God's objective in creating this particular universe was (and still is) to create a place where He and mankind (male and female) can dwell together in harmony and peace. A great deal has happened since "the big inning; our First Estate is long-gone; the early days of our existence are now commonly referred to as legend and myth; paradise lost.
After the heavens and the earth were created, mankind was created. According to Hebrew/Christian Scripture, God breathed into the flesh of mankind a.k.a. אדם a.k.a. ahdahm, and that body of flesh became a living Soul. The Soul of mankind is a supernatural life-form. If you don't believe it now, do you think you could ever believe that you are a living Soul? It's a fair question, isn't it? Moreover, given the current state of man-made religion, should an atheist be blamed so much for choosing to believe that God and the living Soul do not exist? If God exists and God is supposed to be all about love, peace, omnipotence and harmony, why does God allow so much evil and death? Why does God watch us suffer as we do?
TheSupernaturalist.com addresses these questions in a non-religious atmosphere. If you have become impatient with all kinds of man-made religion, here's hoping your visit in these pages helps calm your spiritual nerves. Our premise here is simple: God is not religious, God is God. Believing it or not is your choice. Each of us are driven by the power of choice.
"In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth..."
Despite our scientific achievements and technological progress, this oldest of all legends still calls to us. Did God really create all that? Does the living Soul really exist? Yes. And, yes. The Soul is what makes you different from brute animals. God gave the animals their lives. But God did not give animals the same kind of Soul that He gave to womankind and mankind. Believing so, or not, is a matter of personal choice. Choosing to ignore and deny the existence of God and the Soul is comparable to physical starvation. If you do not eat, your body dies. If you do not choose to connect the Soul to God who is the Father of your life, the Soul will die. In our present state-of-being we cannot comprehend the true character of our essential identity; the I AM that the living Soul is. The Soul is who-and-what you are. In its present dying-state the flesh is carcass. Choosing to believe these things (or not) is the most important choice anyone ever makes.
Small or great, every choice we make comes with a particular consequence and there is no escape from those consequences. The act of choosing and the inevitable consequence of choice are absolutely inseparable. Look around at the modern world we've chosen to build for ourselves. Isn't it obvious by now that no matter how hard we try we can't get it perfect? Something always goes wrong; there is always room for improvement. We strive for perfection and forget that until the corruption of Death no longer exists, the perfection we seek is impossible. In the beginning we chose to believe that knowledge of good and evil would make us like God. It didn't; KOGAE killed us. By choosing as we did, we brought death upon ourselves. (Genesis 3)
To put it plainly, Death & Time are kissin' cousins. For as long as the deadly anomaly of time exists, the spiritual power and material decay of death will continue to chew through the existence of everything in our cosmos. The fearsome portal of Death opens into another dimension of being and no one from this side of the grave has ever conquered the finality of Death and returned from the grave to speak with authority about the temporary character of death; no one that is, except Jesus of Nazareth.
The man from Nazareth is the most revolutionary and controversial character ever to stride across the stage of human history. The Christ of God did not enter into the agonies of human existence to start a new religion called "christianity." Jesus entered the stream of time to straighten out our spiritual confusion and remove the Curse of death from our lives: not by might, not by power, but by my Spirit says the LORD of hosts. (Zechariah 4:6)
Jesus of Nazareth is God Incarnate/God Incarnate is Jesus of Nazareth. The Christ of God is the Creator and Savior of all living Souls. Jesus of Nazareth Himself is the bright line of demarcation between Life and Death. All the man-made religion in the world (including much of so-called "christianity") cannot alter this profoundly simple supernatural fact. Your choice is whether to believe it or not. For those who choose to believe it, the words of the LORD himself are most comforting: "Fear not little flock. It is your Father's good pleasure to give you the Kingdom: the night is far spent; the day is at hand."
