The big picture looks at the reasons behind the scriptures and the plan of God.
In this section we will look at why???
Why did God make the position called the Christ?
Why did God make man?
Why did God make it that we must have faith?
Why did God make it that we must pray?
Why did God make it this way?
Why Why Why….
Creation teaches us about Spiritual truths
If you look closely God has made everything in His creation a picture to teach us of a spiritual reality… the more common the picture the more important the message from God in it.
19 because that which is known of God is revealed in them, for God revealed it to them. 20 For the invisible things of him since the creation of the world are clearly seen, being perceived through the things that are made, even his everlasting power and divinity; that they may be without excuse. (Rom 1:19-20)
God didn’t have to make the world the way He did, He didn’t have to put the rules in place that He chose, He wasn’t limited to what we see here and now, it was a completely blank piece of paper when He started and as the master architect He planned every detail of creation and showed spiritual truth in it.
Here’s just a few…
There is one sun and a one moon in our world…..
Why did God make it this way? He could have had the world flat, with three suns and no moon…
If you notice the moon doesn’t have any light in itself, its a reflector of light only, and only when it is facing (or looking) at the sun (son) will it shine and give light… we are the light of the world, if you want to shine keep your eyes on Jesus!
We eat food, drink and breathe, why…?
We have two ways to get nourished in this world, one through our lungs the other through our stomach… why did God make it this way? we didn’t have to be carbon based life forms… He didn’t have to make us so we eat and drink…
Breath and Spirit are the same word in the bible, which is a picture of the Holy Spirit (Spirit of Christ), and water and bread (food) is a picture of God’s word (Jesus), it also shows the frequency we need Him, you can live for a month or two without food but only three days with out water and only four minutes with out oxygen.
The interesting thing is without the blood, food, water and oxygen are of no value to you, its the blood that takes these things and gives life to your body… the same can be said about the blood of Jesus.
The world is full of violence and suffering and pain… why?
If everything in the natural is a picture of what is in the spiritual.. then the same is also true with this, there is war in the spirit, war in heaven, there is suffering, pain and death.
For something to live something has to die… why?
The same is also true here, every animal that you see alive something had to die to sustain it, this is easily seen in carnivores more than herbivores but both are true. We call it the food chain… we call it survival of the fittest, however it is simply the innocent dies for the other to live… the same is true in the spiritual… Jesus died that we may live.
Gravity is one of the biggest forces in the world…
It pulls everything from heaven to the earth… the same is true in God. Ask and it will be given, seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened. Earnestly desire the best gifts the bible says, put gravity on the things that God has for you and you will pull them to earth.
Everywhere you go your shadow goes with you, the only time its not seen is when there is not enough light or when the light is directly above you. This is where God is to be with us, in the highest place, with us fully (under) surrendered to Him
I believe a shadow is God way of saying sin crouches at the door and wants to rule over you, how many times have you thought, I love it when I get into the presence of God, why don’t I do it more? because evil is always present trying to mess things up! If your shadow is behind you, you are facing the sun (God), if it is in front of you, you have turned your back on the sun (God). Don’t let your old evil nature lead you!
Planet Earth is mainly water
Planet earth is mainly water 70%?, We are made from the soil but our bodies are also made up a mainly water 70%, this is a major point I believe God is trying to teach us the balance between natural and spiritual living, of how to walk in the Spirit, how much anointing we need to walk with Him correctly.
To live in His living water, clothed in His manifest presence, full of the Holy Spirit so when we pray for someone out of our bellies will flow rivers of living water.
Opposite and equal reaction
When you look at some of the major rules God has built in to the construct of this world one of the big ones is you get a result equal to the action you do, another way of putting it is you will reap what you sow.
Every action good or bad has repercussions, be wary of your actions, God is not mocked…not even the least bit mocked. Caution needed! God puts before you life and death, blessing and curses, free will, with consequences. Walk wisely.
Why does our body produce waste?
God didn’t have to make it that we ate and then had to defecate, we didn’t have to be carbon based beings, what was He telling us by this?
This teaches us that a lot of what we take in we have to dump, e.g… God says in a multitude of words there is sin. We need to learn to dump the lies and the mis-beliefs, as a culture we take in incredible amounts of rubbish, with TV and Radio and all the other things that bombard us daily.
The interesting picture here is water. We drink water and it washes the toxins and waste out of our blood, the water is a picture of the anointing, it will keep us washed on the inside.
You could even take that a bit further and say the blood (of Jesus) needs the living water (anointing) to work or keep it potent and effective in someone’s life?
