It is time that we let the mystery of God be finished on earth.
God is a creator. That which God creates is called creation. God is basic cause. God is “being,” while creation is in a constant state of becoming.
Man was created in the image and likeness of God. Therefore, man, like God, is a creator. Everything else on earth is a part of the creation.
This is the point where man has stumbled and failed to realize the significance of his own being, for he has continued—in spite of everything that God has been able to convey to man, everything contained in the bible — man has contained to imagine in the evil imaginations of his heart that he is simply a part of the creation.
Yet, according to the word that is written right in the beginning of the book, man was created in the image and likeness of God the creator, to be identified with the creator and not as a part of the creation, not to be a part of the effect, but to be the channel, the manifestation of the cause.
Billions of people have labored under the misunderstanding that they had to make something of themselves. Children are asked, “what are you going to be when you grow up” and “self-made men” are revered for their ingenuity and resolve. In such a mindset, being is overlooked, while becoming is worshipped.
You need not become anything, for you are a being in human form. You already are, you always have been, and you always shall be. The being you are is eternal, an aspect of eternal cause.
God is love. You are loved and you are love. You were created in the image and likeness of God, therefore the core of your identity is love.
God never asked man to maintain a separate identity. Neither was any man ever asked by God to devise his own purpose, yet how enthusiastically (and stubbornly) man has been in the establishment and pursuance of secondary purpose to the will of God!
To end the mystery of God in your life you must relinquish once and for all the vain attempt to reveal yourself to God, so that you can be in position to let God reveal himself to you.
You are not here to become something. You are here to create.
