BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD

Prince William-Manassas Family Alliance

If there is a God, you are, in a sense, alone with Him. You cannot put Him off with speculations about your next door neighbours or memories of what you have read in books. — C. S. Lewis (from here (en.wikiquote.org))

If you have not read it, please read WHY COVID-19? Whereas WHY COVID-19? stated the basic proposition, COVID-19 is a punishment for our sins, this post helps to explain how COVID-19 resulted from our sins.

What is COVID-19? It is a type of pestilence or plague (biblegateway.com). Both these words occur frequently in the Bible, usually in the context of a punishment from God.

Is punishment from God necessarily a bad thing? No.

Hebrews 12:4-11New King James Version (NKJV)

You have not yet resisted to bloodshed, striving against sin. And you have forgotten the exhortation which speaks to you as to sons:

“My son, do not…

  1. Tom,

    If so what, whether or not a person has faith and belief in God, a Maker, or do not have any belief, perhaps this clue presented by King Solomon might help them to decide if their personal belief or non-beliefs about sex behaviors are wise or foolish.

    As for choosing to abort a child, statistics in the USA indicate that the lowest percentage of women who choose to abort are married. Perhaps this statistic is also a clue about whether the choices of sexual behavior is or was wise or foolish? That is assuming they were not raped.

    If Interested

  2. Indian philosophy states, Ahaṁ Brahmāsmi (अहम् ब्रह्मास्मि) “I am the Absolute”. The Paramatma(Supreme Soul) and Atma(individual soul) are one and all. At the time of the world coming to an end, they merge into each other as Shunyata(Singularity), and remain so, until the time the next manifestation takes place.

      There is a Christian preacher who makes a practice of including a question in his sermons, “so what?” That is, he makes a point of explaining the application of each teaching.

      Here is an example. In the Judeo-Christian tradition the Creator and His Creation are distinct. Each of us are creations. God is God. “I” am not. Hence, the Bible calls upon us, creatures, to humble ourselves before our Creator.

      What is the application of this teaching, Ahaṁ Brahmāsmi (अहम् ब्रह्मास्मि) “I am the Absolute”?

      1. This is the teaching of the world’s oldest scriptures called Vedas(3000-1500BC). It says that each one of us is God(If you read two of my latest articles, you would get a glimpse of it.

          You have an interesting blog. Thank you. Sorry for the delay in getting back to you.

          The various schools of Indian philosophy seem to have had an objective shared by the ancient Greek philosophers, trying to define ultimate reality. Of course, that means determining if God exists. God defines reality. Only what God perceives corresponds to reality. If God does not exist, then what?

          I understand Saint Augustine, based upon his reading of Genesis, determined that Creation took place in an instant. Is the Big Bang theory correct? Probably not. We are taking an instant in time, using dubious data, and extrapolating back 15 billion years into the past. That is a recipe for error.

          So, are we Gods? The Bible suggests otherwise, and I sure hope the Bible is right. I would much rather God be someone who knows what He is doing.

          1. The Indian philosophy gives space to your thought, it is called anekantavada(many-sidedness), the idea that truth is recognized differently in different points of view, and that none of the views are entirely true. Historically it has been established by many western scholars also, that almost all the world religions are based on two Indian scriptures Rig Veda and Yogasutras of Patanjali(unfortunately they have become Indian, but they are the oldest scriptures in the world, and the origin of humanity).
            Yes, there is God, but it does not play a major role in an individual’s life. Because as you said that we are part of the same God. That is the reason, at the time of the beginning of the manifestation, we were one and all, a singularity. It is called collective consciousness. It is a very abstruse subject and meant for the evolved souls only. Now don’t start jumping that I am accusing of not being evolved. Maybe you are evolved, and I am not.
