21 Truths about the Election of God Part 1
Before I begin with this teaching about this very important subject I would first like to discuss the issue of “TRUTH” vs. “DOGMATIC IDEAS” as the concept of one man’s ideas against another do not join to form a Truth, necessarily. Many “truthful ideas” put together end to end by men do not make a doctrine of godly origin. It is very important to any biblical doctrine plainly taught in scripture that we not consume its obvious teaching and then turn around and ADD our ideas or TAKE AWAY God’s intent from it and thus be equally consumed by the wrath of God or our stupidity.
Too often we look at each churches “DOGMAS” or statements of faith and assume that the truth of God lies there in every churches belief. But upon closer review it is not possible for this to be true. TRUTH, Biblical based exact Truth is EXCLUSIVE TO GOD ALONE, as he dictated it through the prophets!
Man on the other hand is INCAPABLE without the Holy Spirit’s help of finding or telling the truth as God sees truth. Why is this? Because man’s heart the bible says is “wholly wicked and perverse”! And without God’s cleansing power working 24\7, 365 days a year that perverseness blinds us to what the truth really is. Remember that God requires “100% truth” not partial watered down truth in any form. The Holy Spirit MUST o.k. what the Church teaches and believes or of what value is it? Many things have been stated over the years about the Election of God, who’s saved and why but the Truth of God remains after all the talk has faded into eternity.
The first truth from scripture that we must learn and learn well is that God HAS ALWAYS BEEN AND WILL ALWAYS BE . “Eternity” is one of the most misunderstood and untaught biblical ideas of all time. When I say God has always been I DO NOT MEAN that God was at some point BORN out of nothingness in the distant past. GOD WAS before everything else WAS including time itself, he is the source of all physical matter the beginning of all forms of life ( Organic matter) and non-life ( Inorganic matter ) ! God is NOT “the Big Bang” he is the origin of the spark that began the Universe.
Eternity describes a state of being that has no beginning and no end outside of normal space-time. God is the source of Eternity and normal space-time!
There are many questions that man has about the nature of “time” and thus eternity itself like:
1. We live in an expanding universe.
2. Mass radiates gravitons which interact with space.
3. Mass produces negative curvature in space.(General Relativity)
4 Time slows in negatively curved space. (General Relativity)
5. Time also slows in moving objects. (Special Relativity)
6. Forces cut in strength as part of slowing of time. (From the thought experiment)
The above concepts when combined with the following definition of time gives new insight into the laws of the universe:
Time is the presence of motion and forces and caused by the expansion of space
1. Gravitons radiating from matter (under influence of expanding space) interact with space to slow its expansion.
2. Slower expansion produces negative curvature in space.
3. Motion is slower and forces are weaker where expansion of space is slower and this is perceived as slower time in gravity.
4. Total amount of motion and forces (i.e. Energy) imparted by expanding space to a mass is a constant (MC^2).
Therefore when the
velocity of an object is increased the motion at the atomic level reduces and forces weaken in proportion, which is the observed
slowing of time in moving bodies.
Is time an emergent concept?
Why does time slow down in gravity? “when an object is accelerated. To increase the velocity of an object we have to apply force. The force changes the way space acts on that object. The object interacts with space and the expansion of space slows in front of object
and becomes faster behind the object. As time is related to expansion of space this sets up a time differential with slower time in front of
the object and faster time behind perpetuating the motion. The objects moves in time differential from faster to slower time.”
Why does time slow down in motion ?
Because TIME around us IS PERCEIVED THROUGH our actions. We perceive when there is no motion time seems slows down in our perceptions. The more preoccupied with life the faster time seems to go in our perception! God, being the origin of time cannot be limited by perceptions of time thus he can travel through time at will because he exists outside of time!
Why is this important to biblical teachings?
Because if we perceive God improperly from wrong beliefs then any biblical doctrine we attempt to teach will be perceived wrongly as well. Perception means “the act of perceiving or the ability to perceive; mental grasp of objects, qualities, etc. by means of the senses; awareness; comprehension, insight or intuition, or the faculty for these. It is the understanding, knowledge, etc. gotten by perceiving, or a specific idea, concept, impression, etc.
What we know about God directly affects how we believe everything in life and what direction our lives take, in relation to TRUTH. There is ONLY one Truth, and that is God; but once the concept of God is twisted by Satan into another form then any real Truth is altered from being an immovable anchor to being a mere concept in our minds. We then spend our lives finding ideas that match our versions of truth rather than being anchored to REAL TRUTH.
If it is not obvious by now where I’m going with this…here goes! Our problems start when we try to do with God what we do with Time…percieve him as “WE WILL him to be” instead of holding to what the bible says in black & white as a truthful perception of God himself. “Isn’t the concept of god a matter of individual perception?” No God cannot be looked at nor perceived as “what we want him to be in our limited finite minds as we do with our perceptions of time , he exists totally outside the concept of time.
However, it is not God who is the “ever changing” concept here, he NEVER has and NEVER will change. It is our weak human perceptions of who God really is that keep changing with our lifestyle changes. In order to excuse our sins before a holy God we must “change who he is in our minds” so as not to feel guilty of our sin! To know the true and living God as the bible states is to be “Settled and Anchored” in our lives JUST AS GOD IS with himself! There is no way EVER to think wrong about anything in life if we become ONE with the creator of life. Instead we believe our “own press” about ourselves being the be all, end all in the universe of ideas…..FAR FROM IT!
“….many worship their consciences formed by their own earthly experiences. Their consciences are nothing more than an inner voice, a sort of a moral policeman that has taken up residence within. Can it be trusted? Do we trust ours? This is better than nothing, but conscience is easily perverted and often abnormally developed because it is almost entirely dependent upon upbringing and propaganda from this world’s media. Since this is Satan’s world, there is little chance that a person’s conscience will be entirely aligned with God’s standards…… Others superimpose on God their conceptions of a human father, but this, too, is woefully inadequate. What if one has no father as part of his life? What if his father was stupid, foolish, tyrannical, or over-indulgent? What kind of positive impression will that leave? Is God merely a grand old man, a head-patting, gray-headed, somewhat doddering person whose mind wanders back to better times, forgetful of what is occurring on the earth and in our lives?”
