Day 76 Choosing Nothingness

So the creator made us temporal creatures in his own begotten eternal son so that we could let his own uncreated spirit develop us and the universe, into the infinite expression of his being that he had already re-created in eternity, outside time.

At present we see the temporary broken planet that our independent spirits produced when we choose the nothingness that exists outside him. But his love is so real that he lets us destroy his own son’s temporal life, so that his own tears will express his respect for our freedom to reject his steadfast love that never ceases and his mercies that do not come to an end.

This is why he wills our ability, as it were, with his left hand to do things that oppose things that he is faithfully doing with his right hand. The one shows us repeatedly what he is not, while the other expresses through us what he is.

Life without the creator is so impossible that his son always portrays it as unbearably and repulsively destructive of the expansive, infinitely fulfilling, experience of his huge universe, which we will develop by his power and life.

However long it takes to bring us into the his glorious life, his words through Peter in the Bible, “Do not ignore this one fact that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slow about his promise as some count slowness but is forbearing toward you, not wishing that any should perish but that all should reach repentance. But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, then the heavens will pass away with a loud noise and the elements will be dissolved with fire and the earth and the works upon it will be burned up. But we wait for new heavens and a new earth.”
