This idea or thought has been on my mind for a long time and even many other children of God too.
Sometimes we get so involved with the deeper side of the Word and the Spirit of God, that we tend to forget about the basic stuff. And when I speak about the “basic stuff” it does not mean it is of lessor value, meaning or power. For me, I think it is exactly the opposite because when we go back to basics – right to the “starting level” – then we tend to find even more deeper meaning and value in our faith in God. It is like going back to your “roots of faith” and to find an even broader scope of the awesome and miraculous God we serve and love.
In the secular world, people often go back to find their “roots”, by digging up and searching through the old family histories in order to trace their lineage as far back as possible. Sometimes they find information about their ancestors that they rather would not have known, or to be known by anybody else. On the other hand it could also be liberating and quite interesting to search and find the background of your ancestors. Who they were and what contribution they have made to society of their times, etc.
Going back to basics in the spiritual sense, is also just as liberating and interesting to see and hear with new eyes and ears about the Creator of all. Utimately He is also part of my lineage, and I am part of His, as He is my Father! Trying to search even further back than that, is futile because He is the Creator of all and the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end! The Good News is, He can also become your Father when you accept Jesus Christ as Savior. This promise in scripture is also for you if you have not yet accepted Jesus Christ in your life:
“But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. ( Joh 1:12 – 13 – KJV). He gives you the power to become a son /daughter – to be part of His royal lineage!
And I want to tell you, that my Father has done some great and awesome stuff back in history! He created this world and the whole universe – just by speaking the word! It happend as He spoke it into existence. “Let there be light and there was light”, the Bible confirms. Our small minds cannot grasp the awesome and almighty power of God! In every part of creation, we see the hand and wisdom of God. Even in the intricate design of a snow flake. Each one is different than the other in the same sense as our fingerprints. And man cannot clone or copy even the simplest of things such as a snowflake, because when examined under a microscope, the man-made snowflake has no structure or design at all.
And He is not done yet! There is more to come when He finally returns to this earth to fetch His children.
