A SERIES ON LIFE, SIN, DEATH, AND BEYOND, TILL REDEMPTION OF CREATION


For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now. And not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies. For in this hope we were saved.  
(Rom 8:19-24)

CREATED IN THE IMAGE OF GOD

This study started as an investigation into the Judeo-Christian concept of the creation of cosmos and the final apex creation of man as the image of God.
 Creation itself was the process of the Word becoming flesh and formed part of the existence within God.  Where else can they exist since there is nothing outside of God.  However I was soon side tracked by the description of similar cosmic structures in several cultures.  Hence it turned out more of a comparative religious study. 
This book deals with the various dimensions of cosmos in the context of human existence in body, mind and spirit.  Does God have a material dimension?  what is life?  What is man? 

SIN, DEATH AND BEYOND
What are the tree of Life and the tree of the Knowledge  of good and evil?  Why did God refuse the tree of Good and Evil to Adam and Eve?  What was the Original Sin?  Was there death before the fall?  How do you explain the presence of the Serpent in the Garden of Eden.  Was the fall part of God’s plan for humanity?  Are we all born with the sin within us? What is death? How do we explain the presence of death long before the arrival of man on earth?  What happens to us after death?  Are heaven and hell eternal places of pleasures and torment?  What are the religious thoughts on resurrection and reincarnation in various religions?   
WAITING FOR THE REDEMPTION OF OUR BODIES

Sin and disobedience required Adam to be shrunk from the divine realm to the lower worlds which involved pain and suffering. As a result the Father blessed his Sons of Adam with death, with hope that one day He could redeem mankind without violating the freedom of will given to them, with full status of Sonship, Hence death itself was given in love till the time of redemption. What happens to this intermediate period? Will there be a seperation of the righteous and unrighteous during the interim period before the judgement, a pre-judgement based on cause and effect? What are these places and where are they. Is there any scriptural revelation on these waiting sheds?
RESURRECTIONS AND JUDGMENTS
1 Corinthians 15: 21- 26  For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive.  But each in his own order: Thus there are series of resurrections and judgments.   For the fallen mankind, driven out of the Garden of Eden and from the infinities of the Divine Realms to the finite realms of creation space and consequent death the only way back to the family of God as Sons of God is through the body of Jesus Christ - the process of theosis. In this series we look at the series of resurrections and the judgment which is revealed to us.

A PEEP INTO THE SECRETS OF THE ANGEL REZIEL

THE MYSTERIES OF THE MEZUZAH

 Placing a small box containing a small parchment on the door post of every Jew is a simple obedience to the word of God "Write them on your door steps". But as I entered into the details, it turned out to be a lot more complicated. Going through the process of producing a Kosher Mezuzah was simply mind-boggling. The meticulous details of the choice of the skin, the preparation of the parchment, the choice of scripts, the meticulous details in writing every letter without a single error in dots and lines with suitable crowns for the right letters are all to be understood before we realize how much of effort is put into the making of each mezuzah.
