Thoughts on the decline of our Lifespan.

We see a continuing decline in the Lifespan of Humanity as we move from the initial span of eternity with a direct walk with the Almighty to the declining span of Adam, Seth, Noah down to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob down to the present day where we are to live for about 120 years and are living a little over half of that amount of time.

Why is this?

When the sinful element of disobedience entered the first created, it ushered in an incompatible element within the dynamic animating spirit (the Holy Spirit) that must be removed as it cannot co-exist with a sin-stained nature. The two are separated through death. It must die as the Holy Spirit is Separate and Distinct from the animating Vital Force. When we consume or take in bad food or incompatible elements into the holy sanctum of our being, we immediately remove it through vomiting and or diarrhea. It must be removed from within our inner sanctum.

Now, this element, commonly called sin, created an environmental distinction between the Holy Spirit and the animating vital force that enlivens all living creatures. By the time we get to the time of Noah, the Lifespan of Humanity is significantly reduced, as sin is pervasive throughout all. Humanity is behaving and doing what it pleases, causing the Almighty to the point of deciding to wipe out all of Humanity.

As the incompatible element of sin continued to have a more significant influence on Humanity, the influence of the Holy Spirit was increasingly compromised to the point of there being no way of redemption. The only thing left to do was to Wipe the Whole thing Out. Fortunately, there have always been elements within Humanity that had enough of the Holy Spirit to be found worthy of being spared. While all of Humanity was wiped out, Noah and his family were spared, and through that one person who had enough spirit to communicate with the Almighty, Noah and his family paved the way for Humanity to continue. Historically, there have been individuals who were found to have enough of the Holy Spirit to find favor in the eyes of the Almighty, who showed enough of a remnant of the Holy Spirit to have communication with the Almighty, which the Almighty could use.

The prophets are a great example. We will call them those who have been called to receive and obey the Almighty through which Humanity may be spared.

As we move through the rest of the Bible, there are those who demonstrate that they have enough of a Holy Spirit to communicate and be used as a living vessel for the Almighty.

Now, who today has enough of a remnant of the Holy Spirit to find favor with the Almighty on their own? No One! Enter the Messiah! A living being, made up of Humanity, filled with the Holy Spirit to resonate with the Almighty. This is our unique relationship with the Messiah, who can resonate with Humanity and the Almighty!

The resonating element that binds the two is FAITH!!

Daily Bible Verse & Prayer

Today's Verse - Ephesians 4:16

From [Christ] the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.

Ephesians 4:16

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Ephesians and Colossians emphasize that no human being, or even a group of human beings, is the head of the Church. Jesus alone is the head of the Church. He sets our direction. He is our example. Christ is our goal for ministry and maturity (Colossians 1:28-29). Jesus also gifts people in his Church and arranges us in his Body as he chooses, giving us gifts he wants us to use to bless each other and honor God. Christ holds us together, enabling us to serve effectively as his presence in the world as each of us uses our gifts. So, let's set our hearts on Jesus. Let's use his life and love to inspire us. Let's look back on Jesus' earthly ministry to remind us how and whom we should serve. Let's give Jesus our allegiance and loyalty as the Christ, who alone is the head of his Body, the Church. Let's let him lead!

My Prayer...

Righteous Father, thank you for Jesus. Thank you for his example, service, obedience, love, and sacrifice. Thank you for his resurrection, exaltation, power, and presence today in your Church and in my life. Father, please use me and my brothers and sisters in Christ with me to do his work in our world and share your grace with all who are lost. In the name of the LORD Jesus, I pray. Amen.

Today's Verse - 1 Timothy 4:15-16

Be diligent in these matters; give yourself wholly to them, so that everyone may see your progress. Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.

1 Timothy 4:15-16

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

"Be diligent!" That's not a phrase, a command you hear much about these days. We want things to come easily. Sweat in the world of pseudo-faith is frowned upon. But Paul wanted Timothy (and us) to know that maturity in Christ requires genuine effort — as Paul said, "give yourself wholly to them" and "persevere in them." Having a redemptive influence on others is hard work. While it is God's power that transforms, our efforts are also required if others are going to see our progress and follow our examples. God assures us that our efforts will bear fruit in our lives and lead others to salvation.

My Prayer...

Abba Father, please stir my confidence, courage, diligence, and determination so that I can share the salvation you have lavished on me can be shared with others through my teaching and my example. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.

Today's Verse - 1 Thessalonians 4:14

We believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.

1 Thessalonians 4:14

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

As horrible as the Cross was, it wasn't the final chapter of the Jesus' story. Jesus died and then rose again. We can believe two things because of Jesus' resurrection:

  1. That Jesus will return in glorious victory for those who have believed in him.
  2. That we will be with those we love who have fallen asleep in Christ when Jesus comes again and brings resurrection and reunion.
These two truths allow us, dear friends in Jesus, to have confident hope for our future no matter where we find ourselves or what our present circumstances may be.

My Prayer...

Holy and Almighty Father, thank you for raising Jesus from the dead and assuring us of eternal life with you and with those we love who have already passed from this life into the presence of Jesus. We look forward to the day Jesus returns in glory with the angels of heaven, bringing us complete victory over death and reunion with Jesus and all who have believed in him. Thank you, dear Father, for the victory we have in Jesus. Amen.
