God, His Children and the Holy Spirit.

Updated on December 22, 2017

God is not a name but a title meaning 'that which is invoked' and simply refers to our creator or source of spiritual strength. His mystery is such that He can relate to the majority of people in the majority of ways, taking the form not only of an invisible being in the Kingdom of Heaven but also in the form of animals and even plants. I personally believe that there is only one God and He is just seen in many different ways. That God is Nature.

Nature, Our God

'He Who form mountains, and creates the wind, Who declares to man what His thought is, and makes the morning darkness, Who treads the high places of the earth - the Lord God of Hosts is His Name' (Amos 4:13).

Some of us don't acknowledge it but it is impossible to look anywhere without seeing God in all His glory. He is our Ultimate Ancestor and spiritual Father, a Supreme Being powerful enough to create all things and by Whose Will we were risen up out of the dust of the earth. Every day we see His love, compassion and impartiality as He provides without charge or complaint all the resources we need to survive and 'makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and send rain on the just and on the unjust' (Matt. 5:45). Being prone to severe outbursts of destructive power He is by no means perfect, but His imperfection is often overlooked in favour of His strength, fortitude, immortality and His ability to inspire us. He is both the Master and the Servant of the human race just as we are both the Masters and Servants of Him, being responsible for determining our destinies and ensuring we have everything we need to live in relative comfort. In Him we have a true friend, someone we can turn to when times are tough and Who will never betray our secrets, and Who provides spiritual hope and relief in our darkest hours.

God's Children

We ought to be thankful to God for all He has done, is doing and will do, for He does most of it for the human race. Not only has He taken us as His favourite children and placed us further along the evolutionary scale than any other creature on Earth, but before our births He has granted us as an inheritance His Power. There is hardly a thing God can do that we can't also do; we have the power to create and destroy lives and worlds, the power to perform miracles, the power to bring about peace and chaos.

No matter how powerless we feel this Power is always within us, sitting in the depths of our hearts and souls, and it is this Power that allows us to competently rule Earth in partnership with God Himself, to use our God-given Power responsibly, and to fight our demons no matter how devilish they may seem. All power that God grants us is symbolic of His working miracles through us as well as of our own abilities, and to abuse the Power is to abuse God and to abuse ourselves.

The Holy Spirit

When we are young, we are instructed to be the poeple God intended us to be. We are told always to be truthful and obedient, to be good and kind to others and never to commit a crime no matter how minor, and to take responsibility for our actions. We understand that the things we're instructed to do are not just for our own sakes but for the sakes of everyone around us. Sometimes our actions are unideal, but we strive to do the right thing. We live at one with God in the way we were created: in His image; His spiritual image. We cherish and love Him and our hearts and souls are awash with the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of God.

Unfortunately, as we grow older we are almost conditioned to sin. We are tempted into crime with the promise of respect, inclusion, money and fame. Our spirits, once holy, become corrupted. There is, however, a chance for redemption and salvation. A promise to the self and the strength to follow through on that promise is all it takes, and that promise is nothing more than the promise to be good and to be the person we once were. When we are good, our spirits are cleansed, we realise truths we never realised before, we rule with the Spirit of God and the Power of God will truly work in our favour. The Holy Spirit is the light through the darkness, a light that can elevate even the lowliest of us to the highest position and will see them remembered positively forevermore.

Our world is on the brink of annihilation. God allowed us to take charge of the world, and we have plunged it into a state of constant war and confusion. We are ungrateful and inconsiderate, and this has led to the abuse of God and ourselves. Corruption runs rampant in a world where it is literally possible to get away with murder and victims are shamed.

It doesn't have to be that way, however; we can step away from the brink and begin our journey on the road to peace. All that is required of us is that we refuse the demons that tempts us into wrongdoing and follow the good example of God, that we be loving, giving and law-abiding. Then and only then can we start about the mission that is, has been and always will be the meaning of life: to make the world a better place.

      Thankyou. Your positive comments mean a great deal to me. Perhaps you're thinking too much about God etc and that's why you have trouble wrapping your arms and mind around the topics. Just accept what's in your heart.

      Your article has beautiful thoughts. I was inspired to re-read and re-think wikipedia articles on RELIGIOUS NATURALISM, G(g)OD, and the HOLY SPIRIT. I am in my mid-80's and still try to wrap my arms and mind around those topics.
