Short Story: Once a Man!

Updated on February 3, 2012

Once a Man!

I wrote the story right here on HP, you can read it by hitting this link on the bottom. The fool have said in his heart there is no God! I read this in the Bible a very long time ago, there in the book of Psalm 14:1 as it says:

For the choir director; according to Mahalath. A Maskil of David. The fool has said in his heart, "There is no God," They are corrupt, and have committed abominable injustice; There is no one who does good.

It is extremely difficult to look at another human who at one time, could not speak, walk of eat for himself, without the aid of someone else. Otherwise he would surely die.

Along with that good deed, from these individuals, normally his parents also came a “Title” one which everyone knows as Parents, to whom these helpless living human specimens owes everything.

The outcome most parents usually desire the most is called Gratitude!

The dictionary describes the word gratitude as: a feeling of being thankful, and grateful. This feelings had been deeply instilled with in mankind, as some sort of mainstay, a token of maintaining loyalty and Love to others who are usually most deserving, and in turn that kid would also learn about God’s love and learn to love himself .

The building of these firm ties to the parents and in turn the Most High God.

From man’s inception at the time of creation, and even after the ungratefulness of Adam and Eve. The powers of darkness have kept his evil hold on mankind, in the form of selfishness and rebelliousness.

God’s word is forever truth, it’s as infinite as a power, He is the only God, and can never fail.

God created man and man created his own failures, especially the man that’s selfish and rebellious, just like he was in the beginning. But he was warned, and given a fail safe route and warned about the wages of sin.

He was, and he even knows that the heavens declare the Glory of the Most High God. I spoke to a fellow hubber lately and his words to me were so weak, void of any substance, I could feel the mixture of his fears and confusion, I could almost see through his words that he was almost asking himself while speaking to me, through the forum. Asking him, why am I this way? I know that I had to have come from something special, and it’s obvious that everything in this life must somehow recycle itself into something else, so why am I sitting here just wanting to be same as the animals?

No one is taking me for food, why are the animals not somehow ganging up and making this collected and desperate charge after such a delicious meal, why wait till we are dead?

It is because, that was not any part in the divine plan, and God gave men dominion over all things. But as it started with one man then his companion, and their rebellion, their greed, and their jealousy. Now many men have lost their faith. So there will be weeping and waling and moaning and gnashing of teeth.

We use to look around and enjoy the beauty of God’s glorious and magnificent works, all along. But now because we allow the wickedness in our hearts, as I can also see the fear we exude. We are now like little kids doing that which our parents have told us not to. So we are inching a little further and a little further away, allowing those evil thoughts of disobedience to take over. Then at the first sign of a bang, whether is be from our parents or from the power of the Most High through life’s natural occurrences, like it’s an earthquake, it’s a tornado, a tsunami. We are then quick to be pretending that we are showing remorse, by falling to our knees.

We are literally expecting God to be standing over our backs, to play some type of cat and mouse, but no, it’s not so, and you cannot say that you did not know!

The reality of all this, is not meant that you should go to church; this is not a call to join a religion. It’s a call to see you in this foolish position. To see you, who was once that dependant and helpless child, only now you have grown, and the very best you can do is to turn your backs on everyone that did all to show you the way. No gratitude, after once being that that always hungry , helpless child, won’t let go of your parents and you don’t care where they are going, learning all their ways, a show of sincerity and truthfulness. So that you could never loose track of the greatness of God because, your parents are God’s direct representative to you. That’s why sometimes it’s the sins of the parents continuing straight through from the way it was with Adam and Eve.

How now with this very same man, he would again prefer to go that same foolish and destructive way, as all those who have traveled that way before. They have never lived to tell the tale, because it was his own individual choice, to witch he will soon or someday answer for , because it was nothing that this could be attributed to, and that’s the powers of darkness, and the work of its evil and rebellious army!

Once a Man!

To God be the Glory!

      Even a chuckle from you on Saturday morning sheds some light on the many things we ought to be thankful for.

      Make any joyful noise.

      Long ago I attended a christian church and it was there I knew it's not necessarily the congregation ,but more opf what inside , and what you truly believe.

      Everyone has , and is possibly supposed to have their own interpretation, I will not make it my duty interpret and tell another their version is correct or not correct because there is a persion deep inside where God interprets there is this huge church if the south where the pastor was recently found dead , there i a lot surrounding his death , he has bought millions to know of God and themselves, what would I get from whether he was sincere or not. That's him and the Most High , but humans they are now sinning by even speculation what they think killed him.

      You do the correct thing and all else would fall in place.

      The conviction is and individual conviction . One of the first major questions that I ask upon learning about the Bible and God. Was whether little children are also going to heaven or hell and I have gotten everyone's version.

      Another was whether or not Adam and Eve are going to Heaven, and I got a more profound answer.

      I have come to the conclusion that the only question that truly matters is: whether or not you and I are going.

      As it comes I speak some things have no plans, there is a natural mystic flowing.

      I am watching the battle as it rages on , and I clearly saw the reason for the breakaway from the first church and for that ongoing breaking away to from their own , and that's where your words and I quote: We are not meant to go to church Sky, because Jesus refer to his people as the church. We the people are the church of the living God and we, our bodies, are temples to be kept sacred and pure.

      And why did he say this ? Because it's truth.

      Thanks Cardisa.
