Many of you have noticed a lack of blog activity since the end of last year/beginning of this year, and I am glad to report that the drought is over!
The beginning of this year has been extremely busy as we plan and prepare for a remarkable year in ministry (I am looking forward to several speaking engagements lined up throughout the year. If you are interested in having me come speak to your church, business, civic group, conference, or any other group, please email my team at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can get you on the calendar as soon as possible). But I have also been very busy writing something that the Holy Spirit God has laid upon my heart.
It is an introduction of sorts to the Kingdom System Series — a look into the heart cry of every person who has ever lived, and answers to the questions that humanity longs to know. God has been waking me up in the night, prompting me to write down what He has been speaking to me. This material I have been writing will most likely be further developed and edited into a book, and perhaps an accompanying e-course. But for now I want to share it with you all in a more raw, immediate form.
I have a fair amount written already, so I plan on releasing it in small segments over the next few weeks. I hope you will stay tuned here and follow along. And, as always, please feel free to send me feedback if this material impacts your life (you can leave comments below, or reach me at my Facebook page).
I will begin by sharing a summary of this new material:
All of humanity is searching for the purpose of their lives. We want to know why we are here. Are we just matter, physical substance that is occupying time and space at rest mass, without influence and without consequence? Or, is there meaning to our life and purpose to our being here? There is a longing for hope, the knowledge and the assurance that there are good outcomes that are planned for our lives. Are there plans for us? If there are plans, we want to know what those plans are, how we engage them, and how we go after them with all that we are and all that we are capable of mustering. We want to know clearly and without doubt, how we are to live our lives so that we are successful in achieving our purpose and in fulfilling our destiny.
These questions and the desire for correct answers are universally held by all of humanity. To obtain accurate results for our search, we must know where to begin our search, what questions we are to ask, and where to find correct, verifiable answers to our questions.
For good and correct answers, we must begin at our origin, the place where our life in-time began for us. Are we merely the result of someone’s egg being fertilized by someone else’s seed and that is all there is to us? We have no plan and we have no purpose. Is it up to us to make the best of this life we have been given and hope everything turns out okay? Or, are we creatively designed by an amazing Creator and Designer who has provided a written plan of purpose for our in-time journey and for our eternity? Recorded history for thousands of years provides indisputable proof and absolute, verifiable evidence of the transcendent relationship that exists between humanity and their Creator. For humanity to live a meaningful life of successful purpose, there must be an open, continuous, and free flowing relationship of fellowship and communication between the eternal spirit of man and the eternal Spirit of their Creator and their God. Life is completely about eternity and not the temporary “things” of time.
For us to live successful and meaningful lives, we must know who we are. Not the trappings of our earthly lineage, but who we are forever before we became who we are in-time. There is a nexus where who we are in-time and who we are eternally and forever meet. Our consideration for living in time consists of the temporary and the horizontal plane where our body is now, and the forever and eternal plane, the vertical, transcendent relationship between our spirit and the Spirit of our Creator. This is where we came from and this is where we will be forever. All of our choices and all of our decisions in-time must be viewed from this vantage point. Our priority and the deciding factor for actions that we choose in the living of our lives must always be based on the forever, the eternal.
