A Wild Thought About Hope

Just had a wild thought. I remembered in Genesis when God said, "but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat from it you will surely die." Our Ancestors BOTH ate from that tree. Even being in denial of ones own ancestral relation to Adam and Eve does nothing to change the clear historical record of the death of all of the descendants of men on Earth, so we've all come from a history of DEAD ancestors.

Can a dead seed ever produce life?

If a dead race were to have any hope of one day becoming alive, there'd be no other hope than the hope of someday somehow being resurrected! Our only hope in life is to triumph over death; any genuine good news would have to at least first BEGIN with resurrection, because having all inherited life on Earth through human ancestors who die, true and all-consuming joy would require that we, at the very least, live out of reach of ever being defined by any of our ancestor's failures.

If we were assured that we were indeed set apart from any generations past, and that not any of the lives of the ones who came before us serve to speak of our fate, then we'd truly live in hope knowing that not even an entire genealogical record of dead-ancestors can defeat God's own personal faith in the eternal life that Jesus' death crushing work of salvation today affords us!

Our confidence in God's own defiance against our death is what living a truly empowered life-style demands and supplies!

So there's plenty of "good news" in the discovery of our having been "reborn" through our inclusion in the Life of Jesus, who was resurrected from death by the power of God. He was resurrected in revelation of God's OFFICIAL decree concerning EVERY dead human! All Death Obliterated.

His resurrection announced our personal inclusion in the exact same Life that the dead body of Jesus inherited from His Father, was revived by, and was returned to God's Throne in heaven as a result of.

Indeed, Jesus' death was God's personal entry into the same dead-condition we OURSELVES occupied, and in Life's Source entering that dead condition we occupied from birth, His resurrection from that death likewise resurrected US, freeing us from death and fate, revealing OUR inclusion as the SAME Life He lived together with The Father from The Beginning!

Good news, but of course, nothing new as it turns out someone already said this in 785 BC, a Hebrew man named "Hoshea" (Hebrew for "Salvation") wrote, "He will revive us after two days, and on the third day He will raise us up so we can live in His presence."

A wild thought indeed!

Failing to Change & Confirming Our Perfection

We've all tried to change ourselves for the better and failed. Before any of us did it, our parents did it, and in us, their children, the seeds of their failures produced after their own kind. Whether them or us, whatever benefit we thought we'd gain by succeeding [in our efforts to improve upon ourselves] bit us in the ass when failing to execute those steps excluded us from a right to participate in the experience of having whatever perfection was offered by it. That we never had to earn our perfection to begin with was made apparent by Jesus' revelation of God as our parent. Failing to qualify for Heavenly citizenship in the standing of Sonship meant that outside of the revelation of the grace of God, men would then have to "make peace" with not having a blessing (or settling for an inferior blessing from an inferior source for some inferior experience) which is the place of mind where glory is lost, where God's seal of approval over us seems absent, and …

The Custodian

Believing that he was "out of his mind," enabled his family to make mental calculations about him that justified their excuses as to why it'd be okay to take hold of him, subject him to their authority, enslave him to their own bondage to the law and exercise control over his life on his behalf. Not believing in his own ability to adequately exercise control on his own behalf, they sought to bind him to themselves and to be a law over him. It was, in their minds, for his own good.

When His family heard about this, they went out to take custody of Him, saying, "He is out of His mind." - Mark 3:21

Seems a bit severe of a response for a mother to have to a mature, adult, 30 year old, miraculously born, immaculately conceived son! But you have to understand, she believed there was precedence in defense of her responding this way. Mary was not one to soon forget the fateful occurrence of a young Jesus, not a day over 11, up and left herself and his father to travel …
