Have you ever wondered why you were born? Most people have one time or another. A lot of people just say life is a fluke? 1 in a billion chance. Wrong, and you already know part of it. Well, if you are a Christian. Christians know that they were created by God. So the question is not why were you born, but why did God create YOU! Yes you as in an individual. YOU do have purpose. Mark twain said “The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.” That day has come.
You were “wonderfully made”, as David said in psalms 139:14 “I will praise you; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are your works; and that my soul knows right well.” So, again to what end; why did God create you. God is the Father of us all, and Jesus is his son. In Genesis 1:26 “And God said, Let US make man in our image, after our likeness:”. Clearly US and OUR is two beings. In this case it was Father and son. Just in case you think God and Jesus are the same being. Then read my article “Is God and Jesus the same being?”. Just in case you are not convinced that God is real. Then read my article “Is God Real?” In it I prove God is real using science and the bible. God is very real.
Born into the Godhead?
They are the only two beings in the “Godhead” as Paul put it. So a father and a son. How many children are in your family? I know some of the families in the bible had 12 or more children. Keep that in the back of your mind. While we discover why you were born.
Why do human fathers have children? To keep the family name going; reproduce themselves; teach the principles this family lives under etc. So knowing all that. Do you think God is any different? Where do you think we get all those thoughts? Yes, God made you to reproduce himself through you. However, it does go a lot deeper.
Did God start with Angles?
Who came first the Angles or us? Clearly God created the Angles before us. So why did God create the angles in the first place? Was God trying to reproducing himself with Angles? God gave them some immense powers. They can fly, they can can create life! Be invisible or visible. They can even become anyone they want. Kinda like a shapeshifter from all those sci fi shows we watch. There powers are very similar to god’s powers, would you not agree. Oh, and they can kill quickly.
Remember when God sent one single Angel who started killing David’s soldiers, and in less than a lunch break 70,000 men were dead (around 1 hour). That single Angel could have easily killed all 800,000 men in short order. They are very powerful beings. And that was good Angel, I would not want to go up against one of Satan’s troops.
We tend to call them DEMONS. So why would God give them all this power. God was clearly trying to reproducing himself through them. But things went horribly wrong, didn’t it. Especially with the Archangel of light Lucifer. It seems because God gave a lot of his “God powers” to the top three Archangels. Lucifer actually thinks he is as powerful as God the Father. That means he has a lot of power. Oh and he can create life and take it so easily. Satan actually scares me. In fact he should scare you too. So clearly, yes God started with the angels.
However, after over one third of all the angels rebelled, lead by the archangel Lucifer or if you prefer Satan. Remember in Luke 10:18 Jesus said “I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.” Yes, Satan took the God train to earth and quickly. Now because of that single act, Satan is now the god of this world. What, yes and people wonder why things are going so badly? II Corinthians 4:4 “In whom the god of this world has blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.” Notice the lowercase g in god. God the Father is always uppercase.
So after the whole Lucifer fiasco, God changed his mind about the angles and created us. Oh, so that is why you were born. Which really upset Lucifer even more. I want you to think about what I just said for a minute. If God started with the angles and they are some of the most immensely powerful beings that exist. Just think, and think about the the fact that Lucifer, has the ability to create life. He uses the power of the air and on and on. He even challenged God for his throne! The point is they are really powerful. Ephesians 2:2 “Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:”
Lucifer the god?
Lucifer thinks he is as powerful as one true God. So that means the angles are really powerful beings, right? Not more powerful than God, but nonetheless they have immense powers. We have already seen that. So why am I going over this so much.
Just think, why is God being so careful with us, and did not give us powers from the start. He can not give you immense power unless he knows you can handle it? And not like Satan did and the other angles. God will not let the same thing happen again. He can not let what happened with the angles happen to us. God could of course just put us down like a rabid dog. But he did not do that with the bad angles at least yet. He will not let rebellion take place again like the angles period. Does that make sense to you? Are you starting to understand yet, why you were born? Why we are being tested for so long. We get 70 years and some get a little more. Those who honoured their mother and father get extra long life.
God’s 10 Commandments
It has to do with that 5th commandment. Have you read my article on “10 Commandments or 11?” Do you get that God wants children? Yes little god beings that are his children. God is reproducing himself through YOU! All that stupid talk about hangin around in the clouds of heaven is just nonsense. What kind of life would that be anyways. God wants you to be a god, just like Jesus. So what does that make Jesus to you? Your future brother? Think about that for just a minute. Really. is this starting to make sense to you? The reason you were born.
Do you think I am wrong? Let’s look at Psalms 8:5 “For you have made him (man) a little lower than the angels, and have crowned him with glory and honour.” Wrong “Angels” should say god! Yes the word there is “Elohiym” which means god not angels. The New American Standard version of the bible says god, not angles. So maybe the translators of the King James version could not believe they could become Gods so they put in angels instead. Who knows? To check this for yourself you can go to BibleHub.com
Psalms 82:6 “I have said, All of you are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.” Hebrews 10:36 “For all of you have need of patience, that, after all of you have done the will of God, all of you might receive the promise.” See, this is why you were born, to be a god, son or daughter to the most high God! Totally Amazing Right!
I Samuel 2:8 “He raises up the poor out of the dust, and lifts up the beggar from the dunghill, to set them among princes, and to make them inherit the throne of glory: for the pillars of the earth are the LORD’s, and he has set the world upon them.” Just remember Psalms 82:6 “I have said, All of you are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.” Sorry I just had to repeat it.
Someone will bring this up, so let me set this straight. Let’s look at Paul said in Hebrews 2:7-9 “You made him a little lower than the angels; you crowned him with glory and honour, and did set him over the works of your hands: 8 You have put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he put all in subjection under him, he left nothing that is not put under him. But now we see not yet all things put under him. 9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.”
I want to you notice Paul really did use the word “angles”. However, he also said Jesus was a little lower than the “angels”. And as we all know he is now a god. So why would Paul quote Psalms 8:5 and use the word Angles. Because today we are clearly not gods, we are just below the Angles right now. But later if we make it, we will be true god children. Not with full power like God our Father, but a lot of it. In fact the amount of power you will receive depends completely on YOU, as you will see! So keep reading…
God like Powers?
Will you play a role in how much power you will receive? Yes, and this has to do with why you were born in the first place. If you are an evil person you will probably not make it at all. Also if you can not control your temper you will get very little power. God can not have uncontrollable little gods, like Lucifer. Also you must be in full control of your emotions. Another thing, you do, do everything God tells you to do,right? I mean to the best of your God given talents. Then you may get a lot of power from God. Obviously it all depends on God. But you will play a huge roll in what you will receive. Again that is why you were born as a human being. This whole life is a test.
Now, I realize some of you think I am crazy. I don’t care, but just think for a minute. God started with angles gave them incredible powers and they failed him badly. So God decided to create us. However, this time God changed all of it and created rules. God wants to be sure he is giving this much power to the right Saints. As in people that will not fail him this time.
That is why he tests you and tests you over and over again. Sometimes even I get tired of being tested, seriously. Sometimes the pain is crazy hard to deal with. But it is why we were born, to be tested and tested. However, I know why I get tested so much. Satan loves to mess with you especially if he knows God is really watching you. Because you are getting close to God. Satan hates all of us, because we will get what he can not have. Satan will end up being destroyed in the lake of fire. And he knows it, so there is that.
Ephesians 1:18 “The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that all of you may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,” See what I mean, Paul knew exactly what is going on. He knew why he was born. That is why he worked so hard, died so many times. Paul knew the truth. Paul even saw himself in glory (yes as a God being), which would tend to motivate anybody! No one in their right mind would not want to be a god which is what God offers us.
So that’s the reason we are born here on earth? Is to test each of us? Yes, and sometimes daily. So what exactly will it mean later on after this life here on earth. Why do you think God and his son made us and in their image. Oh yes, we look like they do.
I need to point out that right now we still see through a glass darkly as Paul put it 1 Corinthians 13:12 “For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.”. Do did you catch the end of that. Once on the other side we will know everything, just like God and Jesus does. And I mean everything. Cool, right?
Right now what we do know should be more than enough to motivate you. And rid you of that annoying question: Why you were born? Unfortunately, there are some serious contingencies. Just like a contract between two people here on earth. God has stipulations as well and they important. You mean like the 10 commandments. And many other items like the holy days. No I do not mean Easter, which is not in the bible. That is called Passover. I will clear these items up in another article.
I really should point out everyone all 107 billion (approximately) people who have lived or are living is born for the exact same reason (for the most part, I will touch on this later). So here is the billion dollar question.
Why should God pick you?
You mean God does not pick everyone? No he does not. But first I want you to think about something. God wants (God needs nothing) people to help the others when he comes. God wants people that will live the right way, even when they do not know about God’s laws. In fact God “calls” people like this. Then God teaches his laws to them, through the church usually. So when he does come back he can use those people to lead and teach others.
Those people are called Saints. Have you read my article on “What is a Saint?” These self starters will help God create new Saints. Then they will become Saints and help others and on and on. Through all 3 of the resurrections. Sorry not all will make it, which is truly sad. Everyone was born to be a god, so when they fail it hurts all of us.
But the first batch of Saints will only be 144,000. That is according to the bible, see revelations 7. God wants 12,000 per each of the 12 Tribes of Israel. Were you born a Jew? Do you know your heritage? Example: I am 1/16th Cherokee Indian. My Great Grandmother was a full blooded Cherokee Indian. I am proud of that fact. But I truly believe I am a spiritual Jew. I have no idea what tribe I am from. Since there are 12 Tribes of Israel.
But God did promise Abraham that all of us would be his seeds. To me that is enough. Well for me to believe I am a descendant of one of those Tribes. You can read it in Genesis 17:7 “And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto you, and to your seed after you.” Also Genesis 26:4 “And I will make your seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto your seed all these countries; and in your seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed;”
This is including the United States of America! Aren’t you glad you were born here. I realize some of you may not have been born here, but you became an american citizen the right way, right? Why do you think the USA is so blessed? All of our ancestors worshiped God daily, and as more and more were born here they learned Gods way to live. The colonists even made a covenant with God. Little did they realize God already had one with them. I will talk in detail about that in another article.
Do you obey God?
I hear this a lot “The commandments have gone away. Jesus died for those sins and the old testament is just old nonsense.” Wow, Really!
I would think that would be blasphemy, but I am not really sure? I am not a legal expert. However, I can not believe people even say that. Yes, Jesus did die on a tree and all our sins can now be forgiven. Those who believe that the law is gone, have “been lied to”. In Matthew 5:17 Jesus himself told you “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets (think old Testament): I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.”
So those commandments are still in effect. If you keep sinning you are in risk of losing your eternal life! Anyone who tells you different either hates you or is ignorant. Yes I know there are a lot of so called “preachers” out there that will tell you “Oh, you are fine just keep sinning you have nothing to worry about, that is why Jesus came” What absolute hurtful nonsense.
Who does he pick
Even though God will not pick everyone, we were all born for the exact same reason and have the same chance. God does want everyone to make it, but some will not. The simple truth is if you do not get “picked” for lack of a better term, it will be your own fault, and yours alone. Everyone has to do their own work, no one can do it for you.
Think of it this way. It is like exercising, no one can do it for you. You have to do your own physical workout. Sure you can have a coach that can show you how to exercise but you still have to do it yourself. Those coaches are suppose to be the ministers. But unfortunately not very many of them even know what they are doing. It is a case of the blind leading the blind and I believe most of the time. Yes you read that right. Jesus told you Matthew 15:9 “But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.”
Jesus told us in Matthew 7:13-14 Enter all of you in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leads to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: (14) Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leads unto life, and FEW there be that find it. Do you see FEW, yes as in not many! Sorry to bring that up, but you have to know the truth. Otherwise you can not fix it, right? So, make sure you are on the narrow pathway. Make sure the church you are in teaches the bible, not some lame man made laws, but God’s laws.
As everyone knows today there are some people that are not quit living up to their potential. In fact I would go so far as to say those people are closer to II Tim 3:13 “But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.” It is this kind of information in the bible that sends chills up and down my spin. But it is that last part that gets me the most “being deceived“. I want to explore this with you. You were born for greatness, make sure you win.
Do you remember when Jesus removed 7 evil spirits from Mary Magdalene, Luke 8:2 “And certain women, which had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities, Mary called Magdalene, out of whom went seven devils,” Listen up, she was a good person and by all account, yes she was. And she was taken over by not just 1 evil spirit but 7 evil spirits. So do you think those evil spirits are on vacation? So why not people today? Here is my point. Do not judge anyone because we do not know what is “under the hood” to use an analogy. I Corn 4:5 “Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.” Got it?
My point is this. We have no idea who is good and who is being manipulated by evil spirits, or an illness or even brain damage for that matter. Would you not agree? So when someone does not agree with your opinion on today as in the much heated politics. Please take a deep breath and step back, and just let it go. None of this nonsense is worth it. Just simply move on and forgive them. You will feel better, and God will be happy with you to and you will sleep like a baby. Let the other person get all upset, blow their stack and look like, well you know. Remember why you were born. Then pray for that person, you just do not know what is under the hood.
God can not create one thing?
Here is something, you may find interesting. There is actually one thing God can not create. What? Yes, and that one thing is the main reason you were born. All of us have to add this special missing ingredient that God can not create. So you may ask, how can we do something that God can not do? You simply need to add this one thing to your repertoire = skills or type of behavior that a person habitually uses.
This is why we were all born; we must create this one thing in ourselves, and by ourselves. The fact is that God can not create it. Personally I am glad, otherwise I would not be here to tell you about it. Some might call it character. We are all “free moral agents”. We can choose to be good or choose to be evil. But that choice is entirely up to you as an individual. Now do you understand. So why did Lucifer go to the dark side and become evil. The choice was his, and his alone. Lucifer craves power, just like so many today.
Some say that money is the root to all evil. Is it, I do not know, I never seem to have any to find out. 🙂 I really do not care about money or power for that matter. As long as I am in charge I am fine LOL. But seriously, I almost died once. The doctors actually told my wife and children and even my Dad, “He is not going to make it”
What little do they know about the power of God! I will admit, that was to close for me. I do not want to go through that again. In fact I hope God comes very soon, so I do not have to die at all! In the normal way, we all have to die in order to be changed, in the blink of an eye. As Saint Paul said. I am sure you feel the same way. I know why I was born, and I am so glad I do.
So what is a Soul?
You have heard the expression “Soul Brother” well as it turns out that is actually closer to the truth than the “Immortal Soul” some are pedaling. It really is simple, just read it in Genesis 2:7 “And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.” So man became a living soul, you mean he does not have an “Immortal Soul”? That’s right, and you just read it for yourself.
You always have to do your own research, but let me just tell you NO where in the bible is the term “Immortal Soul”. Yes lots of people will tell you sure it’s there, but they never bothered to actually check. God knows the future. So he put in place what I like to call proof of concepts. Those little pieces of knowledge so we can debunk things like “Immortal Soul”. Having an Immortal Soul implies that you can go out and rape, pillage, and riot and burn police cars. If your soul was immortal it can not die! Which is utter nonsense. As you are about to read…
Soul that sins, it shall die!
Do you really think God wants people who riot and act like idiots? Read Romans 13:13 “Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness,” And then there is that narrow gate Jesus was talking about. Oh and Luke 10:18 And Jesus said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. Here is some more proof In Ezekiel 18:4 “Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sins, it shall die.”
So if a soul can die it is not an “immortal soul” period! Immortal means can not die! Yes, we were all born to get the same incredible gift from God. Well, technically you can not earn a gift. But you have to work for it or you will never receive it. Just remember it is a GIFT from God, meaning he does not have to give it to you.
Born Soul & Sin
All souls are God’s, but the soul that sins, it shall die” Remember what a sin is? 1 John 3:4 “Sin” is the transgression of the law.” So if you have not read it already you should read my article on the commandments “10 Commandments or 11?” to glean even more information.
Please remember we are physical matter made of dirt. So we are all a “dirt clods“, does make you feel better. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Our soul is part of “YOU”. But you and I today are matter not spirit. So Again, Genesis 2:7 “…man became a living soul.”
God has a plan
God does have a plan, and right now you and I are part of it. It depends if you and I are written in the book of life. Revelations 20:12-15 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. 13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell (GRAVE) delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. 14 And death and hell (Grave) were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
SEE, that lake of fire is BAD! REALLY BAD!
Who ever goes into the lake of fire will be dead forever, no coming back ever, it is done for good. There is NO ever burning hell. The word hell just means grave. Read my article on “What happens when you die” you will have a clear understanding.
Yes in fact it is a brilliant system created by God. No surprise really, Gods has infinite understanding or knowledge, so you could say God’s IQ is infinite and he never gets tired either. Read Isaiah 40:28 – Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding. Wow, how cool is God.
Saint Paul Born to rule
I think it is really important to tell you about some of the things Saint Paul had to go through. Paul was having problems with the Corinthians and so this is part of the letter he sent to them. Letting them know that what they were going through was nothing really. II Corinthians 11:23 Are they ministers of Christ? (I speak as a fool) I am more; in labors more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequent, in deaths often. Yes Paul died many times and God had to revive him, so he could keep doing his work. 11:24 Of the Jews five times received I forty stripes save one.
They were afraid to make a mistake and accidentally give someone to many stripes or lashes with the whip so they would only give them 39 instead of 40. Because of the law in Deuteronomy 25:3 (you can read it later) 11:25 Three times was I beaten with rods, once was I stoned (that means dead), three times I suffered shipwreck, a night and a day I have been in the deep; Could you imagine laying on the ocean floor for a day and a half before God revived him.
Can you believe it
Apparently he was alive somehow under water? Talk about wrinkly skin 🙂 11:26 In journeys often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils by mine own countrymen, in perils by the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren; (Lots of peril, right?) 11:27 In weariness and painfulness, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness.
Paul suffered unimaginable things and yet he kept going. Just how totally amazing a man. I really can’t wait to meet him.
God Given Power, why you were born
“With great power comes great responsibility” or better known as “Peter Parker” principle. Yes I know, this does not come from the bible, but I like the sentiment and I like superheros too, like the amazing Spider Man, Iron Man, Captain America etc. just as much as you guys do.
Spider Man, Iron Man, Captain America, all came from the mind of Mr. Stan Lee. He took his God given talents to great heights, he added to his God given talents. As should all of us.
See even men know that power can corrupt and absolute power absolutely corrupts, right? We have to earn this most precious gift. You already know many of the rules. You are to obey the 11 commandments and the other things listed in the bible. So go win this game. Seriously why do you think Jesus said in Matthew 7:14 “Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leads unto life, and few there be that find it.” We are talking about being a gods, and some will also be kinds, yes that kind of power. But you have to pass all the tests to win this kind of prize.
So the first group is only going to be 144,000, is it possible you will be in that group? To be perfectly honest, that group may already be full. You and I may not even have a chance to be in it. But do not let that stop you from trying. I am trying, and I never give up ever! As Timothy Allen said in the movie Galaxy Quest “Never Give Up, Never Surrender“
It’s all in the numbers
I know 144k is not a lot next to 107 billion. So what are you going to do? Are you going to quit? Not me, I am working my tail end off. I want to win this gift from God. No I am not perfect, I mess up every single day. But I also try every single day to be better than the day before. You have to do the same. Who knows, if there are enough people. Maybe God will even change his mind. I doubt it, but maybe.
Do not forget God lives outside of time the way we understand it. He has already seen the end result. That is why he had all those prophets write what is going on today into the bible. Yes, what is happening today is in the bible it is totally amazing how much it actually says. Later on, in another article we will talk about it.
“Delight yourself also in the LORD: and he shall give you the desires of your heart.”
Psalms 37:4 KJV
