02. A New Creation

In our last conversation we spoke regarding the most important message you could ever receive. Lets open it!

It begins in eternity past! It was conceived at the same time that mysterious book with your design and mine was written and our names were declared! Listen to what it says:

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”

“He was in the beginning with God.”

“All things came into being through Him, and without Him not even one thing came into being that has come into being.” (John 1:1-3 litv)

This is the introduction! It is very direct and amazingly revealing:

First: The message is the Word and the Word is a person: GOD. Do you see the great importance this message contains? It comes directly from God and it is God!

Then there is the date of origin for the message: In the beginning. When is that? It is before anything was! It establishes that this message has priority over all else that came into existence. You will soon understand why..

Third it establishes what the Word – God has done and the nature of the message:

“All things came into being through Him, and without Him not even one thing came into being that has come into being.”

God uses his Word to create. In this part of the message he claims absolute ownership of all that is and points out that this message is about CREATING. He is in effect saying: “I invite you to look around you, look at nature, look at yourself, look at the universe; at the very small and at the biggest things you know off: I created them. I know what I am doing when I speak of creating and that is what I want to talk to you about”

Listen to the next phrase of the message:

“In Him was life, and the life was the light of men” (John 1:4 litv)

What an amazing declaration! He creates and has created all that is because Life is what he IS. So lets piece this much of the message together: The message is the messenger because the Word is God. It dates from eternity past because it was conceived before anything was created. God uses his Word to Create and this message is for you and me and it is about CREATING; and next, He, God, the Word IS LIFE; that is why he can create, give and sustain life in his creation.

But wait, there is another phrase here:

“and the life was the light of men”

This statement shifts the focus from the whole of creation to the specific creature: Men! The message is directed to each and all of mankind! An it is a GOOD MESSAGE. It IS NOT ABOUT JUDGMENT AND CONDEMNATION IT IS ABOUT LIFE AND LIGHT! I am liking this message! What else does it say?

“and the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overtake it.” (John 1:5 litv)

It says there is HOPE for the human race! It says the Creator knows about the darkness that has enveloped our existence; the injustice; the lies; the sin; the addictions; the pain; the guilt; the anger and bitterness that we harbor; the sickness and death that surrounds us; violence, crime and abuse; the corruption and the way in which all of us are tempted, provoked and caught in an ever growing web of wrongdoing. He, of all who are, understands darkness and he speaks with absolute authority stating: The LIGHT WINS OVER ANY AND ALL DARKNESS! It Shines in the darkness AND THE DARKNESS DID NOT OVERTAKE IT! The message is about HOPE, REDEMPTION, LIFE AND VICTORY FOR YOU AND FOR ME!

I am absolutely captivated by this message. It is beginning to sound like a very important message! What else does it say?

“There was a man sent from God; his name was John.”

“He came for a witness, that he might witness concerning the Light, that all might believe through Him.”

“He was not that Light, but that he might witness concerning the Light.” (John 1:6-8 litv)

This is interesting. A witness was sent ahead of the Light (The Word – The Message – which is God and is Life) so that he would announce the Light and that ALL might BELIEVE through his witness. Why? Because:

“He who was the true Light; He who enlightens every man was coming into the world.” (John 1:9)

Did you hear! The Creator, the LIFE, the WORD was coming into the World! The time to personally deliver the message had arrived! and John was sent to introduce the Messenger.

What an amazing event: LIFE itself coming into our world in person! But for what purpose? Lets read on..

“He was in the world, and the world came into being through Him, yet the world did not know Him.”

“He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him.” (John 1:10-11 litv)

It figures! Sounds very much like what we humans would do: Missed it! He came into our world of darkness and we are so foreign to light and life that we did not know him at all. He also came to those that should have known about him and should have recognized him because they had been told he would come, but not only did they not know him, they rejected him outright! What a miserable situation we find ourselves in: Needy, blind, dying but too proud to accept true help! Oh! This message has turned extremely sad and depressing. But wait! This is not the heart of the message. There is more:

“But as many as received Him, to them He gave authority to become children of God, to the ones who continue believing in His name” (John 1:12 litv)

Did you hear that? Rejection did not stop the Message – Messenger! He came and delivered it!

Here is the heart of the message: To each and every one who RECEIVED HIM, TO THEM HE GAVE THE AUTHORITY TO BECOME CHILDREN OF GOD, TO THE ONES WHO CONTINUE BELIEVING IN HIS NAME!

There it is. IT IS IN YOUR SPIRIT NOW! This Eternal message, crafted in eternity past has reached you! It is ALIVE and it is speaking from eternity to eternity INVITING YOU TO RECEIVE HIM for HE IS A LIVING INVITATION TO BECOME A CHILD, A SON OR DAUGHTER OF THE LIVING GOD!

Do you see now? This is not about what you have done right or wrong, it is not about race, creed or status; IT IS ABOUT YOUR DESTINY AND IDENTITY!

To the Creator it was worth the wait and the investment (of which we will speak at a later time) so that once you were born and at the proper time, irregardless of your current situation or circumstances you would hear him in your spirit and have your very private, personal and important decision to make regarding his invitation!

Of course there is a lot that goes into what it means and how, and when and where and why and many other issues that may pop up in your head about this invitation. But this is not the time to let your head get in the way of the most important message you will ever receive! This is a time for your spirit to answer. There will be time for all the rest to make sense, but for now just listen to the voice of the Message in your spirit saying: “Please accept a personal invitation from the Creator of all that is and will be. I, the Creator, will and have given everything to make it possible that you will be my child. Will you accept me as your Father?”

Notice that the only requirement is that you receive HIM. That is IT. Nothing else stands in the way of your true destiny. Please answer HIM in your spirit and with your mind and mouth tell him that you receive HIM as you receive his invitation in your very own words.

See you in our next episode!
