A Greater Reality
“For God intended that your faith not be established on man’s wisdom but by trusting in HIS almighty power…
However, there is a wisdom that we continually speak of when we are among the spiritually mature. It’s wisdom that didn’t originate in this present age, nor did it come from the rulers of this age who are in the process of being dethroned. Instead, we continually speak of this wonderful wisdom that comes from God, hidden before now in a mystery. It is his secret plan, destined before the ages, to bring us into glory.”
1 Corinthians 2:6-7
We were imagined, formed and delivered before any human could interject and impose their own independent perspectives, plans, or worldview.
Before any culture or nation could collect and permeate ways to do life or contemplate what would be the “best” kind of life, God already was filled with the counsel of Himself. From the fullness of wisdom He freely determined according to His own good ideas to bring about our good and to join us with Himself in His glory, to abide with Him in His kind of Life.
No soon to be dethroned governance will disrupt this plan, as it needed no input or intervention to create or fulfill it. Nor does it have any level of dependence on which it has to rely on. His plan does not hang in the balance, teetering back and forth precariously on the whims of human cunning or planning.
For what human planning and imagining could suffice when this plan comes from a greater Reality that the totality of human imagination can’t access itself because it’s of another kind completely.
Not just another dimension, or another mode, or multiverse of variations but of Something and Someone entirely different than any created order. Not a copy or imitation of Another, but is The Original Itself. God has no need for Patents because He can’t be copied or duplicated. There is no real threat. No trade secrets that are interceptable or vulnerable. No artificial intelligence. No reliance on electrical circuits and aggregated, mindless data that is a result of copying something else greater than itself. All human striving and effort will always be a response, not the originator.
But this is not a bad thing. It’s a beautiful thing, because The Originator, whom we get to know and imitate, plans things from the goodness of Himself to share with us the best kind of Life. His Son is the wisdom and power of God to fulfill His plan he formed from the Place where there is no disease, struggle, strife, or confusion. Only Wholeness, Righteousness, Peace, and Love in His Spirit. His Kingdom will never end. Nothing will derail it, not even death by crucifixion.
