The two primary questions that we are asking when we do our ancestry and DNA research are, “Who Am I?” and “Where Did I Come From?” Researching those questions has created a more than one hundred-million-dollar industry. We are interested and we want to know. This information is interesting and can be very exciting. I enjoy watching the programs where someone digs deep into a person’s earthly lineage and provides their findings to the person whose ancestry is being investigated. The findings always surprise those being researched. It appears King Solomon was correct when he said that we in the present, the here and now, do not know much about those who came before us, and those who come after us will not know much about us. It appears this generation is more keenly interested and more passionate than other generations to find out all they can about their ancestry.
Occasionally, in these shows, the investigators locate Family that the person did not know existed. Sometimes they facilitate connection and new relationships are begun, based on the common lineage. While there are exceptions, my research has shown that there is not much change in the life and in the outcomes of those whose connections are uncovered. It is good knowledge, but their life patterns are pretty much set, and not much changes; this is interesting and can even be fun, but there is not a great deal of impact on either party that discovers their relationship.
While each of the five questions we are considering is important and does have significant impact on our life experience, and on the process of the living and on successful outcomes of our lives, the third question stands out in its importance and in its significance. My research and my personal life experience have shown that there is more actual impact on the living of our lives and on our outcomes than all the other four questions combined. Knowing and understanding the answer to the question “Why Am I Here?” is extremely important to Humanity and is very pivotal in our outcomes. For the successful and meaningful life, we are designed to desire and to live, we must know the answer to this question personally, for ourselves.
While I was doing research and preparing the manuscript for the book Kingdom Deployment – Operating in Your Created Design for Your Eternal Purpose, I uncovered an overwhelming and devastating statistic about Humanity that has continued to bother me since my learning the information. Each year on our planet more than one million people choose to end their own life. This is not acceptable. This is not okay. A recent study stated that in the United States in the the last ten years the number has increased more than seventeen per cent. The problem is not getting better. We are going the wrong way. There has to be something that we can do.
The number one and the primary reason given by those who choose to take their life is that they have no hope. They see no way out of their situations, their circumstances and their challenged relationships. Our minds – our thoughts, our feelings, our emotions, our personality and our will play an amazing movie that we view in the theatre of our imagination and of our reason. This is where the battle is fought. The battlefield of our mind is where the Kingdom of Darkness and the Kingdom of Light go to do battle for our souls, our eternal spirit. Our spirit is the prize! Our eternal spirit is what the battle is for and what the challenge is completely about. The absence of hope is a pandemic reality of our world today. Why?
In our Constitution and our Governing Agreement, our Creator and our Designer says that His people are being destroyed because they do not know Him. When someone chooses to end their own life, they have lost the battle in and with their mind. The reason and the passion/motivation/unction for writing this series is predicated upon my strong and overwhelming desire to assist you on your journey so that you will discover, without question, the foundational and the fundamental answers to these breakthrough questions that forms the correct platform and the accurate understanding for how you can and how we are to live the successful and the meaningful life that you are designed to live and to enjoy by your Creator and your Designer God. Our Creator declares that He has prepared paths for us ahead of time (before we personally entered time) and that He has prearranged our lives so that there is a Good Life ready and waiting for us to live. Did you know that? He clearly states that He has plans for us that are good and that are full of hope, and they do not include disaster for us. We have learned that for us to achieve and for us to understand and then to accomplish our “created design”, there must be a paradigm shift in our worldview – How we view life, how we think, what we believe, and in the way that we choose and the process that we engage to decide upon all of our thoughts, our actions, and our desires. We must always begin everything that we do from the Kingdom perspective where our vantage point is our eternity and our individual eternalness. This is a huge shift and makes an enormous difference in the living and the outcomes of our lives. This requires that we reprogram our minds (the way that we think, what we believe, and how we choose to act) to become agreeable with and in alignment with His Word, our Constitution (the body of fundamental principles and established precedents which define our agreement for our governance). This is exciting! This is revolutionary! This will change our lives to be the experiences of victory and overcoming power, where we live and where we exercise the authority and the dominion over all the forces of the Kingdom of Darkness that desires to destroy us and wants us to destroy ourselves. This is how we are designed to live. We are designed to experience a powerful, living and breathing relationship with our Creator and our Designer, the true and the living God our Father and our Friend who loves us. We have discovered that this is who we are. We are the product of His design for relationship through fellowship with Him and with Humanity. He has given us gifts and benefits that we bring into time to enhance everyone’s life experience on the earth. We enter time and this planet with abilities, with gifts, with talents and with qualifications to perform amazing benefits for ourselves and for all of humanity. Our inclination and our propensity are to go after this divine charge with all that we are. We have an unction and a drive that is implanted in our spirit and in our mind by our eternal Father, to pursue the performance and the delivery of these gift for ourselves and for humanity. This desire comes directly from the throne of our God. Humanity cannot impair nor deter our ability to achieve our purpose and our calling. This is who we are forever, and this is the most powerful anointing we are given for our lives.
