Aiming For Eternity

What is our purpose? An interesting question to start off this post/article. I spent years before trying to come up with an answer. Apart from my studies in the occult, in the world, no self help book allowed me to properly attain that peace of mind with an answer. 

I remember reading somewhere how we are told to love ourselves and that we are of worth and then I asked, but for what? We store the treasures and attain a level of richness we seem worthy and still desire more. We push ourselves to be known and have a legacy but as time continues, records are broken and our limits overcome by another. Yet, this never stopled me and I continued to push forward but the question remained. 

As of late, I’ve picked up and challeneged myself to properly read a Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren. I read this book when I was in high school but just to say I’ve read it. I tend to read like a speeding bullet, only having a book in my hand for 2-6 hours and going on to the next. Yet, I just finished my third day and I’ve been contemplating what I read and my life as a whole. In the book, he discusses that our purpose is never truly filled our known until we focus on the eternal, God. 

Looking back at this blog even, my reason for writing, and reason for school. I genuinely want to help people and be a voice to the voiceless but as well, ultimately be a light and example that reveals God. Never to force my beliefs but properly demonstrate that Christians are not the stereotype people say we are. As Well, Gee ology is the study of my life as well and how I see the world. All of this branches out to my short stories, poems, and thoughts.

Now, what I’m trying to relay is as follows, life is but a passing vapor. We spend our lives doing grand things and in honesty it isn’t bad, just when our focus is shifted from our purpose of who we are and can do, is it in peril. We need to stop and seriously think, why am I doing this? A life focused on what truly lasts or of purpose will not only motivate us but ultimately have us love the life meant for us. We struggle as a generation with doubt, self inflated egos but let us see that as the Sun rises it sets and what you accomplish here may not even be known across the world. Doesn’t mean to stop loving as if all is vain but know that as temporary as our life is, life is much more when centered to that which is eternal, love, truth, and etc.

Be bold.

My faith does not summarize or determine my level of intelligence. My faith determines my perception of reality based on my experiences and truth revealed. Just as a piece of paper or years in a school doesn’t reveal my understanding of a certain subject. 

I’ve met and debated countless of people in various fields and my own education has been the books in libraries or ebooks downloaded. Tbought I jave been mocked because I am a Christian, I’ve shown myself as one who is capable to defend his stance. Even now as I continue in my education, I hope to one day confidently stand amidst a collection of people and present the truth without any doubt of myself. This is one of the reasons why I hardly speak anymore, I wonder if I am capable or worthy of such a calling.

Don’t let your youth or convictions be judged by another, if you speak in truth, with love, continue to speak. These are words that God and others recite to me. Now I leave the charge as well to others. In an age where opinions are being treated as truth, speak against injustice, lies and corrupt ideologies. 

I am Christian but this does not mean that I claim myself higher than others. In contrast, I know my faults and come humbly to God. But I must declare, my faith is no excuse for others to disregard my word’s.

Coming Together

Streets flooded and I see people posting it sharing pictures of the current events in Texas. People coming from across the country to help out or mostly from the state. I see some who claim to be Christian just recite or talk about sending prayers. It made me think about the condition of the church.

The Church

Many people consider the church to just be a building but the church is much more than that. In scripture, the church is said to be the bride of Christ, or interpreted as such. (Ephesians 5:25-27). It is comprised of many parts, which can be seen as believers. Born again Christians who are followers and servants of Christ.


Now, with this clarification of what is the church the questions can then be answered, where is it, What has happened? I’ve been asked before, what denomination am I, which my response tends to be something along the lines of, I’m a born again, bible believing Christian. Some attest to a certain set of beliefs and separate themselves, while I believe these divisions are secondary, though I’ve been told I am rooted in reformed theology, though I say I am biblically rooted. 

The verses I posted of Acts shows a United body, a community of believers that apart all differences, shared a common one, Christ. Love thy neighbor. To truly love another as we love ourselves apart from any condition. The church, shared all that they had. And as I matured in the faith, I didn’t truly see that unification, honestly, amongst believers. Many complained about their status, level, position, or gossiped. The “church” I would go to seemed to be just what is seen now, a building. As soon as service ended, people went separate ways instead of growing with eachother. They seem to be brothers and sisters only under the watchful eyes of one another. Now, there may be, and are, some true bible believing/following churches, that reveal the characteristics of the bride, don’t get me wrong. But as well with recent events, why does the church only seen to spring in a major crisis?

I see it in social media a lot, many speak and say that, “My prayers go out” or “Lord will provide”, but as believers we are also called to action. Our lives are filled with faith but God also directs us to work for his kingdom. The call to go out, follow Christ, be an example, and to love. I’m not saying we “have” to drop all duties and head to Texas, due to recent events. In saying that, in any way we can help those in need and love. There may be some churches that gather supplies and donations, which you could contribute or even events. A little goes a long way. I usually always tell people about, site where you can learn subjects and grow academically, while helping those in need. For every question you answer that is right, you gain ten grains of rice, 10 questions right, 100 grains and etc. A good hour and you help spread food to a country in need. 

We need to seriously get off our highhorses and help others. Be united and like minded. When I considered denominational concerns as secondary is as Paul describes with believers saying they were of “Steven” or even with Christ and followers of John. We must all come together under one banner, Christ, and love, truly love for God is love. 

Just wanted to give some food for thought as I see the things the world claims we are. We need to truly rise and correct. Teach true biblical truths, rebuke and reproach. Be the church of Christ and prepare for the wedding, as the bride, awaiting her Husband’s return. This is Gee_ology. Let’s go, boom! Be blessed all.

I AM…Jesus

Title could seem like I am proposing so me sort of hypocrisy. What happened to Gee_ology? Did he finally lose it and think of himself as divine? No, on the contrary, I love presenting people with who Jesus is. 

Now I have touched upon these topics before. My blog doesn’t just consist of stories or articles about my life, but as those of you who have been reading since the beginning know, I’m an apologist. I also am a biblical studies/theology student, a Christian. These topics would arrive and flow from my heart to help understand.

Now, I have had people discuss or preach to me a false Christ. They have learned to pick and choose verses to try to disprove the divinity of Christ, yet let us allow scripture to speak for itself. Let the sword speak and the word manifest.

But about the Son, he says: “God is your throne forever and ever, and the scepter of your Kingdom is the scepter of uprightness. And: “At the beginning, O Lord, you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the works of your hands. (Hebrews 1:8-10, ref. Psalm 102:25-27 speaking of Jehovah, Yahweh. Father speaking and declaring the Son as the creator) Now they may say to me, ‘What is His name?’ What shall I say to them?” (Exodus 3:13) “God said to Moses, ‘I AM WHO I AM’; and He said, ‘Thus you shall say to the sons of Israel, “I AM has sent me to you” (Exodus 3:14) ‘I tell you the truth,’ Jesus answered, ‘before Abraham was born, I am…’ (John 8:56–59) I AM the Bread of Life (John 6:35, 41, 48, 51); I AM the Light of the World (John 8:12); I AM the Door of the Sheep (John 10:7, 9); I AM the Good Shepherd (John 10:11,14); I AM the Resurrection and the Life (John 11:25); I AM the Way, the Truth and the Life (John 14:6); and I AM the True Vine (John 15:1, 5) and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. (Isaiah 9:6)

Now I could keep going on. I could even associate how the spirit, yet I felt compelled to write this more so to help those in the faith come to clear understanding. I’m Christianity we don’t simply just say Jesus is God, no, we believe and know him to be. Just as scholars can reveal that the early church proclaimed him as Lord and saviour. 

Followers and Servants of Christ

Christians, In name only?

​I’ve heard and seen it many times before; “Christian” is a title so loosely used. Given to identify many, though few can reveal its meaning. One where hypocrisy follows suit while it is not so and many other Gospels are promoted or taught but is not of God. The reality is the man who claims to be Christian, proud in himself as to forget others, is but a man who professes but is not of Christ. It is more than attending churches or having the title. Sitting in a garage does not make you a car. Biblically speaking, if we were to compare Christianity as it is labeled and seen, many would fall short to its standard. But what can be said of a Christian, is he not one who believes and follows Christ? To solely say one believes in him, God, is not enough. On the contrary, belief in God does not mean one is saved or born again.

Under Laws?

So then many ask what should be done and I shall say as scripture reveals, we ultimately do nothing for in and by Christ we have been saved. Yet, the commandments are seen, to love God and love thy neighbor. In loving God we are known by God, to love God means we obey him. One can try to dissuade and claim we must abide to the requirements of the old law but in Christ the law has passed but it does not mean that it has lost its values. The laws were made to help his people at the time but because of Christ we now abide under him. Just because we are not bond by the laws does not give us excuse to sin. 

Loving Others

In loving our neighbor, it comes with the heart of God bestowed unto us. The true Christian loves without condition or for gain but is willing to sacrifice and give to his brother or sister. We are able to bear one another and rebuke, bringing others back from their sin as members of the body and bride of Christ. Not inflated by our egos because we are his chosen people nor to allow the things of this world to separate us from He who is enough. 

New Creation

The Christian has denied himself and carries his cross. Tossing away his old notions and repenting, he begins to allow the Spirit to work within him and change him to the image of Christ; Being a light bearer and witness to the glory of God. He is able to defend his beliefs with love and humility, though tested. He has become a new creation and given a heart of flesh not of stone. 

Strengthened in Christ

The Christian acts not religious but knows traditions followed to give worship to the Father. He is not weak but is given strength by the Spirit. As he as well knows, he does not require the happiness sought in this world but finds joy in Christ. Though he knows as well that tribulations may arise and his nature may cause moments of brokenness, the Lord calls and restores. He boasts not in himself but in the Lord who he gives all praise. As one who can say or call himself, Christian, I speak as to not have people think I am the standing marker. I am but a man and speak or write with the same words directed and taught in scripture. To live is Christ and die is gain. Thus, we are born again.

God Restored

​It wasn’t in seeing the historicity of the church, the prophetic working coming to fruition, nor in being raised in a Christian household. My revelation derived from seeing the darkness and Satan, evil in its purest form, embodied within and those I surrounded myself with. 

The light found me in the darkest of places and love in those moments I hated the world and myself. In my brokenness, I was restored. I did nothing, I did not “find” God, instead, he came for me and that in itself is a testament as to why I lay down my life daily.

Evil Intent

I remember reading or being addressed what is evil. The question in itself perplexing. Coming from it, embracing the darkness before, I know it all too well. The problem of evil is we believe it to be a thing. Yet evil is the absence of good. You can have good without evil but not evil without good. There’s two types: moral and natural. Moral being one of intention and choice to do bad, be malevolent, but this requires a moral standard,what then is good? Natural, not a result of intentional but a by product of the fall, introduction to life outside of paradise, Eden. Where laws and biology of nature have adjusted to accept and assume our wicked state. If an all good God created a world, with no freedom, no morals, would it be considered good? Is not lack of choice seen as evil intent, a tyrant? Yet choice was embedded, evil was a possibility but does not mean he is the author of evil, evil is not a thing. Evil will forever be our choice. The elites and governments creating wars, famine, sickness all with an agenda. And just by this interpretation, without God, good, we are evil, no matter the standard of the world’s because it has been founded within evil, the world has made its choice.
