In our last post we looked at, What God is. We ended with a question about ‘energy’ – what is it?
This week we are going to begin adding more topics to the posts as we begin to look at God and creation.
Sometimes scientists will argue that the lower species of animal life only exist on instinct, but what is instinct? Could it be memory that is not of the brain, but from the cells or genes? We think of ourselves as the highest form of life and yet we still bring some instincts into the world with us at birth, such as the instinct to suck and grasp, and the ability to swim.
The highest most profound properties of life are Mind, Consciousness, and Soul. These are the essence of heaven and earth, and that is WHO GOD IS.
God is not in a place because God is the place. God is around everything and is everything – no beginning, no ending and no boundary. That is WHERE GOD IS.
One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and you all.
In the Bible, there is frequent testimony from those who claim to have seen God or who spoke to him, and he with them. The Bible is full of God said this and God said that.

The contradiction lies in the ancient people’s expression of their thoughts.
Their perception of their God, and their understanding of nature and the world in which they lived can be very confusing to the modern reader.
For, lo, he that formed the mountains, and created the wind, and declared to man what is his thought…
How Does God Declare His Thought?
The most pronounced Thought of God was the Word that came down through the generations in the physical form of stone, papyrus and scroll. The Word was written in stages and over time by men who were able to hear the Thought of God, but they were human nonetheless. they wrote with human hands and human hearts, and sometimes they had the tendency to make God in their own image.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
Note: we have taken a bit of a detour – but that happens when you discuss more than one important topic at a time – and each ties in to the other.
Next time we’ll look at:
