Cepher Blog

Welcome to the Journey

Sojourn

Each Sabbath we hope to publish a page for your enjoyment with the Word of God. As with everything we do here at Cepher we pray that the Blessed Holy Spirit will enlighten you as you read and only what the Messiah has intended for you to see will be given to you. This week’s reading is from the Book of Saint John.

John 21:25 – “And there are also many other things which the Messiah did, which if they were written in detail, I suppose that even the world itself would not contain the books which were written.” NASB

To us this verse dovetails so nicely with last week’s verse in Revelations 10 because it reminds us that the Bible is just the beginning and that there is so much more to learn, understand and apply into our lives that did not get into the Bible. Just because is not written in the Bible does not relegate it to an obscure place in life. Without a doubt, as far as we believe here at Cepher, the Bible is written for humankind through divine intervention and should be used as a learning tool to help believers get closer to God.

Having said that, and at the risk of redundancy, at Cepher the Bible is our book of confirmation whenever possible. Case in point: We used to believe in a six day creation until the Blessed Holy Spirit opened our eyes to two different considerations, one being that the age of the earth is not as important as our complete surrender to God; and secondly there was no way of measuring the first two so-called days of creation due to the fact that there was no moon or sun or identifiable star formation.

The point the Blessed Holy Spirit was trying to get into my very thick skull was to not be so opinionated about things that just cannot be proven. I will not be surprised when science makes great advances into understanding evolution and calculating the age of our planet; and when they do I do not want my children to feel as if I sold them another “Santa story”. I want to know the truth where ever that takes me.

If something cannot be proven at this time, I can still believe it with all of my heart without trying to sell it to others as fact. I can share, as my belief, and allow the Blessed Holy Spirit to touch another heart as was mine.

Did we come from some other life form? If that is the way the Creator wished to accomplish this miracle we call life then so be it. The Bible is written in such a way that if information were to come out to confirm the evolutionary track it will not change my belief in my Messiah one little bit. However, what ever information science could come up with would have to be so convincing that ninety percent of the world accepted it; and even then I would have to research it on my own to confirm every piece of detail before I could square with an ape as my cousin.

Although, some of my cousins…..
