World Without Ends
A bright Future
In the Jewish mysticism which is called the Zohar written by Rabbi Shemone. It is written that since man and woman has been thrown out of the Garden of Eden they were disconnected from the light of God and they desire the light except they try to quench their desires through materialism, sex, drugs, alcoholism. These are all only instant gratifications to try to fill the emptiness of the light. We all must strive to keep our faith and belief in God in order to obtain the light even though sometimes we do not understand why we suffer our faith should always remain constant in order to be worthy of the light. If this makes any sense at all.
Through the study of the text of Genesis and Job it appears that God has set boundaries that involve space, time, and life that man can not cross no matter how much he tries.”He hath compassed the waters with bounds, until the day and night come to an end…”(Job 25:10). Fallen man desires to ascend to the stars, yet it has already been appointed for this to happen through God’s word. “…But Israel shall be saved in the Lord with an everlasting salvation; ye shall not be ashamed nor confounded world without end. For thus saith the Lord that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the Lord; and there is none else…” (Isaiah 45:17-18). Notice G_d tells us that he created the heavens and the Earth to be inhabited some time in the future through his power, not mans. Sometime prior to the creation of man, all the angels inhabited the heavens. The heavens were full of light as was the planets. When Satan rebelled against G_d a great darkness fell over the deep. The deep being the waters above the earth and the waters below. “…This is leviathon(Satan):”…he is king over the children of pride…He maketh a path to shine after him..; one would think the deep to be hoary…” (Simon, p. 91-92). Once he was cast out of heaven. Satan thought man losing his personal relationship with God in Eden would be the end, but G_d had other plans.
“… I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of Heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not pass away…” (Daniel 7:13-14). There is a blindness of the spirit that indwells fallen man that needs to be replaced with a new heart. God in his mercy has given the Blind eyes to see, the deaf ears to hear. Suffice it to say, there are men, like those of Job time that believe their wealth is more important than an abundant life with G_d. “….But the eyes of the wicked shall fail, and they shall not escape, and their hope shall be as the giving up of the ghost…” (Simon, p.85).
The hope that was in Job, like it is for those who wish to obtain the light, is spelled out in the text of Job. “…Why do you persecute me as God, and are not satisfied with my flesh? Oh that my words were now written ! Oh that they were printed in a book! That they were graven with an iron pen and lead in the rock forever! For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the Earth: and though after after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh I shall see God: whom I shall see for myself, and my eyes shall behold , and not another…( Job 19:22-27). “…For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be on his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his Kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgement and with justice from henceforth even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this….” (Isaiah 9:6-7).
