Abracadabra & Abba Father

Because things human really can be messy here on earth & God is all powerful it is often argued that God should overlook the injustice & like a magician, wave the wand & make everything reappear again. If He doesn’t do it that way then He must not be there anyway, a bit like a ransom note.

The moment we begin to bring God down to our understanding & level is the moment we become fooled by our own awesomeness & begin to worship the human experience or the created things such as the natural world instead of God the Spirit who is maker of all.

God has not forsaken the world & the human experience in the midst of its tragedy as it appears broken or cut in two. He came & dwelt among us, took on our human frame, hopped into the box of death & felt the blade that we might not be lost in the illusion of sin & the false freedom that lies hidden in its contraption.

It was not Abracadabra that Jesus cried out…

It was now about noon, and darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon, for the sun stopped shining. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two. Jesus called out with a loud voice, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.”  When he had said this, he breathed his last. The centurion, seeing what had happened, praised God and said, “Surely this was a righteous man.”  When all the people who had gathered to witness this sight saw what took place, they beat their breasts and went away. But all those who knew him, including the women who had followed him from Galilee, stood at a distance, watching these things. Luke 23:44-49

  1. Amen,
    Flee what is evil and cling to what is good.
    Seekers of truth, life and love who hunger for righteousness will be blessed and Jesus said, shall be filled.

    Telling God to remake paradise is infact already His agenda.

    Those whom have no hunger for it now, will not taste its goodness and fruit now or later on. We labour now for the Kingdom, labouring with Christ as co-heirs (big upgrade) and praying Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. This is no passive arm-chair critic of God, god role playing.
