Atheism: A Wasted Life of futility and meaninglessness…an existence of the Walking Dead…
Atheism is a life lived in futility, hopelessness, meaninglessness. Consider the following…
Causation for creation,
As the result of a cosmic coup d’état having manifest in the Spiritual World before the creation of Time, our Creator supernaturally fashioned elements from the Spiritual World in such a manner as to make them visible to the creatures created in His spiritual image yet constrained by the elements of Time i.e. Mankind.
“By faith we understand that the worlds were prepared by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things which are visible.” Hebrews 11:3 (NASB)
The creation of visible matter and constrained by Time e.g. the Universe – Earth – Mankind were necessitated due to the destructive nature of SIN that had been introduced into the Heavenly Kingdom by a rebellious cherub angel (Ezekiel 28:12-15). It was necessary that this sin be removed and dealt with apart from the perfection and sinlessness of the Kingdom of God; therefore, the cosmic struggle between “SIN and RIGHTEOUSNESS” was placed within the constraints of Time and is currently being dealt-with by God the Father in our midst (Revelation 21:27).
The testimony of God’s validity,
1) Our Creator has placed before our eyes irrefutable evidence of His power and dominion and providence over Time and matter by placing the Sun, Moon, Stars, Earth, in our presence and He has displayed His supernatural abilities in the most minuet of details by creating the unfathomable and unexplained complex human genome. The Holy Spirit has clearly told us that anyone who denies these supernatural forms of empirical evidence validating our Creator’s reality in Time will be “without excuse” (Romans 1:18-32)
2) Then our Creator, out of love and compassion for human kind, left the splendor of His Kingdom in the Spiritual World some 2019-years ago and entered Time to rescue us from certain destruction and death in sin. He did this not only to defeat the works of evil and the Evil One but because He loves us and His perfect Holiness-Justice-Righteousness will not permit our destructive sin to enter His Kingdom (Revelation 21:27). Our loving and compassionate Creator did not ask us to die for Him but He suffered horrifically and died for us at a specific time in history where the most barbaric form of death had been instituted i.e. Crucifixion; thereby, assuring the shedding of His innocent blood for the remission of the sins of the World (Hebrews 9:22).
“The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil.” 1 John 3:8b (NASB)
The display of love and sacrifice exhibited by our Creator and His battle against the works of the Evil One within the Realm of Time is being observed by the Heavenly hosts, the angles, who faithfully serve God the Father and remained with Him subsequent to the rebellion in the Kingdom. At the culmination of the Millennial Reign of Messiah-Yeshua, these faithful angels will agree emphatically with God the Father that Lucifer-Satan does indeed mandate the penalty of Hell forever (Revelation 20:10). In fact, Hell was NOT created for mankind but for Lucifer-Satan; unfortunately, mankind will enter Hell subsequent to the Judgment for having rejected the only pardon from death in sin and Hell i.e. faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Mediator for sin (Revelation 20:11-15).
3) Then our Creator carefully chose specific holy men of old to meticulously pen His Covenants with mankind on parchment. Spanning some 1400-years and 40-writers, the Holy Spirit of God took-on the responsibility of moving these men’s heart and mind to articulate God’s Covenant of Grace to everyone who would believe in the Son, Jesus Christ-Yeshua, as God, Creator, Messiah, Lord, Judge.
God the Father ensured that this Covenant of Grace was bound and published and distributed among the masses so that His Plan and purposes for Time, Eternity, mankind, could be known in every generation having been born under the Covenant of Law and the Covenant of Grace. God the Father did this so that mankind could commune with, love and serve Him in the Spiritual World forever; in fact, the ONLY purpose for our life constrained by Time is to prepare for Eternity.
Every man, woman, child, born into this temporary existence in Time has been specifically chosen to play an intricate role in a cosmic struggle that is manifesting daily before our eyes. This cosmic struggle does have tangible evidence that is visible to mankind as seen in the struggle manifesting between Islam-Allah (Satan) v. Israel-Yeshua (Creator). God the Father has placed the Jewish people and the Nation of Israel as an observable entity in Time (Leviticus 20:26) displaying His work in Time and in Eternity as He brings all things into subjection to His will in the coming Tribulation period followed by the Millennial Reign of Messiah-Yeshua that will be initiated in Jerusalem, Israel.
The Futility of Atheism i.e. the Walking Dead,
It is tragic, unfortunate, horrific, that many men and women existing in the deception and death that is Atheism e.g. Naturalism, Secularism, Nihilism, Moral Relativism, are literally throwing their life in Time and in Eternity away as they will die in meaninglessness and futility because they have chosen to live a life warring against God’s love and God’s Plan as they actively choose to serve God’s prolific enemy, Satan, on a daily bases, even if unaware. Atheism is the epitome of foolishness and is completely void wisdom, discernment, knowledge. A wasted life in self-degradation obsessed with aberrant sensuality and debauchery and narcissism i.e. the Walking Dead!
…but just as it is written, “THINGS WHICH EYE HAS NOT SEEN AND EAR HAS NOT HEARD, AND which HAVE NOT ENTERED THE HEART OF MAN, ALL THAT GOD HAS PREPARED FOR THOSE WHO LOVE HIM.” 1 Corinthians 2:9 (NASB)
