What is the reason for our existence?

What is the purpose for being here?

Did we really evolve and come into exsistence
from the result of a big bang of
energy some where in space?

Why are there so many different forms of
religions in the world today?

Are they all worshipping the same power, or
the same god?

If I were to pick one to place my trust, would
that religion lead me to The Truth?

How do I choose from so many?

Who....? What....? When...? Where....? ...?

When a person finds himself or herself asking these kinds of questions, he or she has come to the realization that everything has a degree of value as a result of the purpose, which is given to that thing. If however, man has evolved from nothing, to our current status among all that exist, then, who or what among all that exist assigns the value among us? If the sun, moon and stars were to stop giving there light upon the earth as a means of presenting evidence, could man do anything to turn the lights back on by his own power? If the water upon the earth found its way to an open drain deep within the earth, could we do anything to restore things to a normal state of things? And for what purpose would the earth continue to provide all its beauty, if there were no one on earth to enjoy it? With all the things that man is doing to himself and to the earth, what is it that keeps the earth from becoming like one of the barren planets in our galaxy?

If however man did not evolve from nothing, but was created to fit a purpose, then sooner or latter we must recognized and acknowledge that there has got to be a point to this life or for man's existence. With a sense of void, or an empty feeling deep within the soul, many have set out on a pilgrimage to fill that void by receiving and trying all that the world has to offer. Many have given up hope, and have died without achieving this goal. Yet, many around the world have been seeking year after year to fill this void within their hearts with the things that the world says you must have in order to be happy. After gaining some or many of these things, which are offered to appease the cry of the soul, we see that men and women with much in their possession are still destroying themselves, because they cannot seem to satisfy the hunger of the soul or to find The Key to open The Door that will bring Light to their lasting happiness and peace.

After coming face to face with their deep need, many begin the search by searching within themselves to find The Key that will open The Door to the understanding of the questions above. Finding no success within them, some continue their search by meditating on the writings of others, who have shared the same experience in the search for that Key. Realizing that there are many on the same path, it confirms and gives evidence in their minds that there is a Key that will bring enlightenment to the minds of those, who would find it. However, many of the seekers for Truth have become unsatisfied with just meditating on the glimmer of Light that shines through the Key void of the soul. In their ventured to study all the religions of the world on the path in search for the Truth, more questions are raised.

Is there really a GOD, WHO created the
heavens and the earth?

What is HE like? Can we trust HIM?

Why did HE create man?

What is our purpose for being here?

Does HE really care about us?

Why canít we see HIM?

What is the everlasting Gospel?

To understand The True Nature of GOD, we are to see HIS Love and HIS Joy expressed in the praises from those, who have received HIS Word of Life in their hearts. For HE has expressed to us The Good News in The Gift of HIS Son Jesus Christ that all, who receive Him might reflect to all HIS Light to those, who are running away from HIS Gift of Life to their darkness and death. It is by receiving HIS Son that men will have in them HIS Light of Understanding, to reflect HIS Love to the souls of men, who are running into darkness from HIM. To see and receive The Truth, we must raise our questions of our darkness in The Light GOD has given to us in this world, to see by the opening of our eyes in the reading of HIS Living Word. HIS Light in both the physical and The Spiritual world is The Key that would fill this darken world with The Gift of HIS Son. The glimmer of Light reflecting on these questions has helped to shed Grater Light on The Key Who opens to us The Door to our understanding of these questions. By taking hold of a copy of GOD'S Word and reading It for Spiritual Light under HIS physical Light, we begin to open to our hearts the answers to the deep questions deep down in our souls.

Beginning with the opening page, we read The words of GOD, Who said, "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness [was] upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that [it was] good: and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day" (Genesis 1:1-5).

Now, there is much that is packed in just these five verses that we should take time to unpack That, Which has been revealed to us before moving on. To understand what has been revealed, we must reflect on where we have come in our study thus far. If you and I have searched all our lives for That One Key that would open to our hearts the answers to our questions, then, after finding It, did some how The Key come into existence when we found It, or was it there all during the time we were searching for It? Were we not all in darkness to the Truth, meditating and searching within ourselves as to what might fit the void in our hearts to open to us The Door to our understanding?

In just these five verses alone, GOD has revealed that we are not the only ones in darkness to HIS Truth. Before the earth was form and man was created on it, GOD had already created the heaven wherein HE has placed HIS dwelling, but the inhabitants of heaven had come under a cloud of darkness. To bring discernment and understanding to the inhabitants of heaven, The Same Spirit of GOD that shines The Glory of God into our hearts is The Same Spirit hat moved upon their hearts to reveal The Truth of GOD to them. However, in order for the inhabitants of heaven to understand The Light of Truth, they need to see the application of The Truth in order to discern the error of darkness that had come upon them. Although we are the means by which they would see The Truth, We also needed to receive The Word of GOD in us, to reveal and witness The Truth as a Light to them, that through us they might discern between That, Which is True and the error between Light and darkness.

When GOD said, "Let there be light", HE did not create That Which was already there, but set out to reveal The Truth through that which was yet void that all might receive The Key to open to their understanding the things of GOD. For Jesus said, "...I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life" (John 8:12). It was for this purpose that man was created to be a witness for The Light of Life, not only to this world, but also to those dwelling above. " And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die" (Genesis 2:16,17). It was to prevent man from being a witness for The Truth and bring Light to ligten their minds that enemy step in to darknend the mind of man to keep The Truth from being known. And today, many are still working with the enemy in darkness to The Knowledge of The Truth.

With this Understanding manifested in our hearts, The Word of GOD said, "...the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed [it] unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, [even] his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified [him] not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened" (Romans 1:18-21).

When Jesus said that He is The Light of the world, He is saying that the things that The Father has made known to the world through Him, cannot reveal the invisible things of GOD, except they are seen by faith in The Light of HIS Glory. It is only by Him that The Things of GOD are made known and are understood, not only to the inhabitants of heaven, but also to all that dwell on the earth. Only by seeing these things by faith in HIS Light can we see and proclaim The Knowledge of The Father's Eternal Power and Godhead, as revealed through HIS Son. The question then is this, "Are we being wise unto salvation in receiving The Knowledge of The Truth? Or being foolish in our imagination and receiving the wrong image to darken our hearts?

By Saying, "Let there be light", GOD was revealing that there was some kind of resistance to the revealing of The Light of Truth, Which is Life to all. And because of this resistance working against Christ, Who is Light and Life upon the face of the deep, and then again upon the hearts of men in this world to prevented man from reflecting The Light of GOD in Godliness and Righteousness, Paul, along with the other disciples testified of this point and said, "...seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not; But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftines, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God.

"But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake. For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to [give] the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us" (2 Corinthians 4:1-7).

If the god of this world is resisting and preventing The True Light, Which is The Image of GOD from shining to the minds of those, who believe not The Truth, then, if we are not receiving GOD'S Image through Christ to our minds, who's image are we receiving and giving the glory?

Notice what has been revealed to us in these words. If The Father's glory did not shine to us from HIS Son, would we be seeing HIS Glory today? And if HIS Son did not reveal The Glory of The Father through His servants of flesh in this world of darkness, could He through them have reflected to us The Treasures of God today? If we never walked in The Light of GOD'S Word, could we align ourselves to walk in HIS Will? Yet, each person in darkness to the Truth of GOD must examine himself or herself in The Light of Truth that comes into our hearts through HIS cleansing Light, that out of our hearts, He The Truth might shine to glorify The Father in a world full of darkness that all might shine as diamonds for Him.

Yet, John has testified and said, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

"He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God" (John 3:16-21).

After reading these verses in The Light of GOD'S Word, what would be the point that He is seeking to manifest in our hearts?

Is it HIS Will that the temple of our heart
should remain in darkness to HIS Truth, to
walk in error to HIS Will?

"Is it HIS Will that we should remain
lost in darkness by not keeping our Lamp Lit?"

Did He save us by His Sacrifice that we
might continue in darkness to
The Father's Will?

No, it is not HIS Will that we should keep His temple in darkness and death to HIS Light and Life. However, if we have not allowed The Father by HIS Word to transformed our hearts from darkness to Light, and from death to Life, then, when That Door of Everlasting Light and Life is opened to reveal The Fullness of The Glory of GOD, anyone remaining in darkness and death to HIS Light and Life, he or she will have no place to stand in HIS Presents. The result would be to not exist.

By Paul, The Light of GOD has revealed to our darken hearts, that the wrath of GOD against all, who are un-like GOD, and walk in error to HIS Will, Which HE has revealed. For That, Which has been revealed to men, HE has revealed to all by those, who have received Him, that all might be in fellowship with HIM. For That, Which men say is hard to be seen, HE has revealed to all through the things He has made, that by faith, all might know The Truth, even The Truth about the Godhead, which men have altered by their vain imaginations, which has darken their hearts.

But by following The Light as revealed by The Word, we as believes in The Word are transformed out of darkness into HIS marvelous Light. For He is the only One, Who can reveal to us the Truth and The Glory of The Father. For He stands at the door of our hearts, and says, "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches" (Revelation 3:20-22).

Notice that, if we invite Him into our hearts, then He will have supper with us, and we also with Him that we might overcome this world of darkness as He also overcame. The question many are asking is this, How did He overcome? And how did His disciples overcome to be in fellowship with Him? His answer is given above. He said, "He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches."

Through David, The Light of GOD has shined to revealed The Father's Will, saying, "The fool hath said in his heart, [There is] no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, [there is] none that doeth good. The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, [and] seek God. They are all gone aside, they are [all] together become filthy: [there is] none that doeth good, no, not one. Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people [as] they eat bread, and call not upon the LORD.

"There were they in great fear: for God [is] in the generation of the righteous. Ye have shamed the counsel of the poor, because the LORD [is] his refuge. Oh that the salvation of Israel [were come] out of Zion! when the LORD bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, [and] Israel shall be glad" (Psalms 14:1-7).

With questions of his own to GOD for guidance in HIS Will, David ask and recorded HIS Word to him saying,

"LORD, who shall abide in
thy tabernacle?

"Who shall dwell in thy holy hill?

"He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart. [He that] backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour. In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; but he honoureth them that fear the LORD. [He that] sweareth to [his own] hurt, and changeth not. [He that] putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the innocent. He that doeth these [things] shall never be moved" (Psalms 15:1-5).

By having an ear to hear The Spirit, David, who was a man, who walked uprightly in this world of darkness, testified of The Word to confirm this point and said, "Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path" (Psalm 119:105). David recognized The Word of GOD, to be the means by Which we are invited and guided into fellowship with The Light and Life of Christ to sit with Him on His throne. If we are to be in fellowship with them, then we must also take the step of faith to walk in The Light of HIS Word.
