As I thought about writing, art, creativity, it seemed too little, wasted with little to show for it. I had spent thirty years pouring out my creativity in the search for truth, only to see it cast away in the final analysis. It was considered as nothing and often treated as a joke, an absurdity. But now that I have time to spend in true creative pursuit, is still seems too little, a candle light in the darkness blown out in a gentle breeze.
Yeshua, (Jesus’ Hebrew name) came into this world perfect and filled with the Spirit of Almighty God. He was tempted in everyway and perhaps to a degree and extent as no man ever. (Heb. 4:15) As God’s Son He was endowed with divine wisdom, prophetic and miraculous power, but none for himself. He emptied himself and took upon himself the form of a servant.(Phil. 2:7) Scripture says about Him, “He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.” (John 1:2-4) “The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.” (Colossians 1:15-20)
Modern man views Yeshua as a pauper, who owned nothing, but the clothes on his back; an ancient uneducated carpenter, and eloquent speaker from the lower classes who fell victim to a messiah delusion. In worldly thinking He was poor and accumulated nothing prized such as fame, power, or wealth. However, He rose from the dead and ascended to the right hand of God Almighty. (Mark 16:19) Moreover, He will return to earth as King of Kings and Ruler of the nations. (Rev. 1:4-5)
Nothing given to us in this life is lost if we surrender it in service to God and others. Yeshua said, “And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or fields for my sake will receive a hundred times as much and will inherit eternal life.” (Matthew 19:29) He spoke of a deeper truth that applies to our complete life. “Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it.” (Matthew 10:39) The gifts given to us by God in this natural life, will be fully realized in Heaven, like a treasure kept in heaven secure and safe.
