Looking for Answers

Made in the image of God, we all have been implanted with the gene of looking for God. He, though humankind does not want to know of Him and rebelled/rebels against His Power is till prepared to come closer to those who are willing to find answers to their many questions. God already provided lots of answers to human’s questions. But not many do want to find those answers in the very old books. God’s Voice is still resounding all over the earth and many people are trying to bring others to God, but each individual has to make the own choice to prepare himself to hear and to listen to That Supreme Voice.
Let us find that Voice of God in the Book of books, not as such in the writings of human beings, being it philosophical or so called theologian works. Let us go back to the Word of God He gave us with the Bible and take the words in it for what they are, not twisting them with human dogma‘s.

To remember:

  • “Everybody’s looking for answers!” = mantra in journey.
  • Everybody’s looking for answers
  • we’d like to understand more than we do = part of human nature.
  • son of man = reflection of God’s glory and the exact imprint of God’s very being
  • God spoke in the past & God speaks now
  • Son has delivered ultimate answer of our salvation

  • Sermon on Bible scripture: “Ye are Gods” (prayerupdates.org)
    If God created you in His image this means you have the attributes of God. And the attributes of God includes power of imagination, creativity, innovation, deep thinking, excellence and ingenuity.
  • Listen…. (thelivingmessage.com)
    Many people don’t want to hear someone preaching from the Word because it is God’s Truth. Some don’t think that it is true or that it is God’s Word, they think that the Bible is just a book of stuff, stories made up by some bunch of old guys which tell a little about historical figures and some of them are good stories but that is it, nothing more. Have you ever really listened to it, really sat down and read it? The Bible is about much more than Jewish history and the kings which ruled Israel, it is a condensed history of the world itself, from the viewpoint of God’s chosen people.
  • “It’s a great tragedy when the Bible is interpreted by those who are not in love.” ~~Bill Johnson (quotesthoughtsrandom.wordpress.com)
    God is all about relationships. His goal for us is to love Him.
  • Holy Spirit: The Presence of God (charleefelice.com)
    The Holy Spirit resides in each of us that believe that Jesus died for our sins, that He is our redeemer. It guides us, makes us conscious of our words and actions, convicts us when we sin, and grants us peace when we do right by Him, by others, and by our own selves.
  • The Power of the Spirit (histruthwillsetyoufree.wordpress.com)
    Where the words in the bible will point you to God, and help you know about God and Jesus, the Holy Spirit within you will help you know God and Jesus. The words have no power, only direction. The power to make the words real in your life comes from the Holy Spirit, within you.
  • What Does God Say About Your Spirit (yourgodmoments.wordpress.com)
    Christ Himself revealed both His Father’s true nature and how we must relate to that nature: God is a Spirit (a spiritual being) and those who worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth (reality). Jn. 4:24 AMP
  • Affirmation of God: The Holy Spirit uses what I have. (tomraines.wordpress.com)
    Let us all trust that the Spirit will take what we have and complete God’s purpose through us. He will provide us the words to say and them the ears to hear. He Will fall on those we are to help.
  • There’s Nothing New Under The Son – Not Republican Nor Democrat (gunnyg.wordpress.com)
    There are none so blind as those who refuse to see.  And as most Christians understand, the lost not only refuse to see, but hate those offering sight. It’s always been so.
  • Blog for Week of November 16, 2014 (oldgreenbrierbaptistchurch.typepad.com)
    Would humankind be restored? The question of restoration is left open. What next, we might ask? God must step in to provide a way for sin-tainted human beings to come back to him. He starts his plan of restoration by choosing a man, Abram, and his wife, Sarai, through whom he will build a family and ultimately a nation.
  • In the Beginning… (herose4grace.wordpress.com)
    the Bible is Old.  It is an act of communication, written for us but not “to” us.  It is pre-science, pre Darwin, pre astro physics, pre, pretty much anything in our knowledge and perspective of the world today.  It is written for a culture that is thousands of years away from us in not only time, but culture.  Too often, we correspond the Bible to our way of thinking. Christians and atheists alike tend to their own world view or ego.  In order to truly grasp the words of this work, you have to step outside of our minds, our entire style and influence of thinking; discard science as we know it, culture as we know it, and meld into an ancient civilization that is overrun with beliefs and day to day encounters more foreign to us than stepping off of our planet and into a civilization of aliens on the other side of the universe.  In this time, the world was the product of a violent gnashing of gods; disorder and chaos at its core.  It was a world saturated in violent and destructive means.

One of my favorite movies in recent years is “O Brother, Where Art Thou”, and adaptation of Homer’s Odyssey, set in rural depression era South. In fact, it’s led me to re-read “The Odyssey” and enter once again into this classic tale. The main character in the movie is one of three escaped convicts, who travel back to his home in search of treasure.

As in Homer’s epic, these characters have a host of lively encounters and danger filled adventures throughout their travels. The main character, (taking the role of Odysseus) says repeatedly throughout the quest, “Everybody’s looking for answers!” The phrase becomes quite the mantra in the journey.

Everybody’s looking for answers…in some way or fashion. The zaniness of this movie reminded me of that simple fact; we don’t know everything, and we’d like to understand more than we do. It is part of human nature.

“Long ago God…
