How proud you are O’Man, until humbled. How invincible you are O’Man until the first indicators of frailty are known and felt to the flesh. How bold and assertive your words O’Man until until rendered to none effect and silenced. And where is life eternal found O’Man in your quest for immortality? Can you change the course of the Sun or even of the lesser Light by night? You declare and legislate and take great liberties in charting the course of mankind. What is the the ending of all things living and where is the place of Restoration? Can you raise up mountains and create borders for the many waters? Speak to us this day of your great and unlimited power. Show the world the beginning of the substances rendered into invention that is called “of your own making”. Can you reveal to the world of things to come and when those things shall be? Where was mankind when the beginning which was not the beginning ignited? Speak of your wisdom and speak of your knowledge show all of the things that must be. You measure time when there is no time, you build great edifices that will not remain built but do ultimately teeter and fall into ashes and you call it progress, yet the Sun rises and sets without fail lo the many years it has remained in the sky and you call it day. Should it be removed you call it night and should night be removed what then remains to be named? Could you of power even then yet live, could a tree grow or a song be sung? What now O’Man can be seen or said?
It was but a Word. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. He came as a witness, to bear witness about the light, that all might believe through him. He was not the light, but came to bear witness about the light. The true light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him. He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him. But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, the gave the right to become children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.
And the world was made through him. So Christ Jesus did say: And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. And God saw that the light was good. And God separated the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day. And God said, “Let there be an expanse in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters.” And God made the expanse and separated the waters that were under the expanse from the waters that were above the expanse. And it was so. And God called the expanse Heaven. And there was evening and there was morning, the second day. And God said, “Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear.” And it was so. God called the dry land Earth, and the waters that were gathered together he called Seas. And God saw that it was good. And God said, “Let the earth sprout vegetation, plants yielding seed, and fruit trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind, on the earth.” And it was so. The earth brought forth vegetation, plants yielding seed according to their own kinds, and trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. And there was evening and there was morning, the third day. And God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night. And let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years, and let them be lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light upon the earth.” And it was so. And God made the two great lights—the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night—and the stars. And God set them in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth, to rule over the day and over the night, and to separate the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good. And there was evening and there was morning, the fourth day. And God said, “Let the waters swarm with swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the heavens.” So God created the great sea creatures and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarm, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. And God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.” And there was evening and there was morning, the fifth day. And God said, “Let the earth bring forth living creatures according to their kinds—livestock and creeping things and beasts of the earth according to their kinds.” And it was so. And God made the beasts of the earth according to their kinds and the livestock according to their kinds, and everything that creeps on the ground according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” So God created man in his own image,in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
So we find then, there is no you even to be considered had not God decided to create a man and a woman in His likeness. So the origin of your perceived power of flesh is moot and rendered to none effect. This then O’Man is your cause for boasting, immortality, and your power for it has been given unto you by the Grace of God through His Son Jesus and apart from Him you can do nothing. For his Sun does shine on both the Redeemed and the Sinner alike until that day when He shall separate the Wheat from the chaff. And our God said it…
