“WHAT HAVE WE NOT GIVEN YOU AND SHARED WITH YOU …
OUR SONS AND DAUGHTERS?”
All you Vibrant Sons and Daughters of God – 7 Sept 2011
We creatures? Share with God in His Eternal Decisions? Decisions made before we were born on the earth? Yes, I believe so. But how could this possibly be? Yes, that’s a big question.
A number of matters are involved and attention must be paid to them. In this opening posting I will offer a list of some of these important matters. In following posts, interacting with all you, I intend to examine each of these matters.
God’s Divine Nature does not and absolutely cannot change.
God Knows with absolute certainty, in His Divine decision to create, all the future free choice actions of human beings, good and bad.
“And whatever you ask in my Name, I will do …” John 14:13. / “If you ask anything of me in my Name, I will do it.” John 14:14 / “If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask for whatever you want and it will be done for you.” John 15:7 / And so on > John 15:16 and John 16:23 and John 16:24 and miore. Do we understand what is meant here? Why doesn’t every little boy get his new red bicycle for Christmas? especially when he prayed in Jesus’ Name … with no doubt in his heart … and even prayed to Jesus’ Holy Mother Mary?
When we speak of “before” and “after,” we almost always mean a time relationship. It will be important that we speak in terms of “prior” and “consequent,” which do not necessarily involve time at all … but rather an order of things.
God is Infinite Love … Infinite Sharing. To what extent will God Share with us? What is the metaphysical limit – if there IS such a limit – to God’s Sharing with us?
The matter of predestination is a fact – however it may be understood – and is involved in this whole matter.
God Wills some things to happen infallibly and they will most certainly happen. God permits, allows, some other thing to happen or not happen, and we are involved here. How?
God Knew before I was born that 15 July 2013 I would steal $100. This is a free choice act I should not do. God does not want me to do it. I freely did wrong. How did God Know before I was born? … and yet in no way cause me to do wrong?
And, I’m sure, more new questions will arise as we share posting here. All of these things are related somehow to any sharing we might have in making God’s Eternal Decisions.
Personally, it all sounds very exciting. Let us all ask together in our hearts each time we post that the Holy Spirit will Bless us and Guide us and prompt us and block us – whatever we need.
Blessing in Jesus and Mary to us all! John (JohnJFarren)
