Jesus can be thought of as an illustrative artist. Who uses objects to teach lessons to the global community. Yes, visual substances to teach substantive lessons. With the scriptures announcing, “For the bread of God, is He , who comes down from heaven, and gives life to the world.” Text: John 6:33. This time using bread as the source of life. A food harvested from this earth for physical nourishment, as well, as spiritual nutrition for life here, and beyond this sphere of existence. Ultimately climaxing with this glorious conclusion, “They sang a new song,” singing, ‘You are worthy to take the scroll, and to open the seals; for you were slain, and have redeemed us to God by your blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; and have made us a kingdom of priest, and we shall reign on earth.'” Texts: Revelation 5:9-10.
It’s note worthy that God sees the world as a universal whole. One of equality and without divisiveness. For inequality and divisiveness are like a fungus that kills everything in its path. Also in Revelation five, the redeemed are seen as a global governing body with Jesus. With no boundaries of separation just a perfect whole. With everyone being invited to share in the best of times.
God sees the world as a whole, so also do His redeemed. While people outside of God’s umbrella, by choice, and as a majority have compartmentalized His land masses into nation states. They did, and do that, for self preservation purposes. Creating inequality and divisiveness and its that fungus that is plaguing the world community today. Plaguing nation states also from within their carved out borders.
Common sense suggest that the better way is the God way. But for now, it’ll have to be a mental exercise. Because the great devils of this world won’t allow it because they govern under Satan the God of compartmentalization of inequality and divisiveness. See 2 Corinthians 11:14-15.
How great is this division between God and the nation states that inhabit His creation? Note the following, “The world can not hate you; but it hates Me, because I testify of it that its works are evil.” Text: John 7:7.
The answer, God have mercy upon us! Come quickly in the name of the triune personage of Jesus Christ. See 1 John 5:7.
Pastors get sick, vacation, retire or move on. Leaving a temporary vacancy that needs to be filled. This Padre, duly ordained, is available to fill that vacancy. Or perhaps a Sunday school class on a biblical excursion on various topics seldom explored. Done perhaps in the comfort of ones living room. All, and more, just for the scheduling.
