So … you’ve always felt that you were part of a larger existence … and a major part of that existence was God …? That’s because God says that he created you even before He thought about the fundamentals of making the world itself – THAT’S how much he loves you! But your ancestors lost all the closeness they had with Our Father God because they disobeyed Him. They lost their divine-ness and became like everything else on this world … they lived … they got old … they died …and everything they were, and everything they did, and everybody they knew became a memory … or history … Since we are the offspring of these fallen ancestors, we have lost our divine-ness also … we have become sin-full. God had created a collection of Souls that are His People … you are one of them …but sin caused all of us to start dying … God decided to change all that … Someone one “Godly” had to come here, live here, just like the humans … and die here … BUT in doing so – overcome/defeat DEATH ITSELF. That Godly One was God’s Only Son, Jesus of Nazareth, The Christ (the saver of God’s People). He lived quite a life. In just three years, he did thousands of miracles, healed thousands of people, controlled nature, made food out of nothing (He was God, remember), and taught such a simple way on how to return to closeness to God, … that few people believe Him… In fact, the people who lived on earth at that time killed Him – they hung Him on a cross and bled and suffocated Him to death … (it wasn’t a nice way to go). BUT THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT GOD WANTED … because once Jesus was dead He really went to work on the whole death problem, found a way to COME BACK FROM THE DEAD, and did so! We call that The Resurrection and we celebrate it every Easter Sunday – because it’s the best news anyone has ever heard … God’s People Live Forever – We Are Back With God – All The Time!! This is what he taught when He was here, In Order To Return To Being Close To God, Do This:
Recognize that you are a self-centered creature only interested in yourself, and turn away from that purpose and turn towards God The Father and Others (God’s People here with you)
Pray– ask God for The Gift Of Faith
When He gives it to you, BELIEVE, that Jesus Is The Son Of God and He Is The King Of You, and This World.
When you do that, God will send His Spirit to Live Inside Of You Forever (you’re going to LOVE that part!!)
Go out among other people and tell them all about what God does for you everyday
Encourage them to seek out and discover God too – like you did
Especially, look out for God’s People struggling with being hungry, going without things, lonely, sick, or held captive by something
Help Them (Jesus said that when we do, we are actually helping Him gather in all of God’s People)
When we have gathered in the last one, Jesus said He Would Come Back To Earth For Us, resurrect all of God’s People from all-time and all of us would live with God Forever
JUST THE WAY GOD MADE IT in the beginning!
You’ve probably got a bunch of questions about all this … we can help answer them… write them down or just ask to meet with one of us – whatever you prefer …we’ll promise we will reply …
