Today, ideas about death, divinity, and existence are in view.  The human condition is that of having finite definition and limit within the frameworks of time and space generated by the GODhead manifest as a Creator who appears through features of existence that may be diffuse, immeasurable, immutable, and invisible.  A writer using the ID “Anonymous” at “Yahoo! Answers (India)” posted the following:


At death man doesn’t exist anymore, therefore will atheists be happy to be in nonexistence Forever?!?

Psalms 146:3,4;Eccl 9:5,6,10. They may say that YHWH doesn’t exist but in the end they won’t be in existence!!!!


THE GOLDEN ARROW:   Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them;  While the sun, or the light, or the moon, or the stars, be not darkened, nor the clouds return after the rain:  In the day when the keepers of the house shall tremble, and the strong men shall bow themselves, and the grinders cease because they are few, and those that look out of the windows be darkened,  And the doors shall be shut in the streets, when the sound of the grinding is low, and he shall rise up at the voice of the bird, and all the daughters of musick shall be brought low;  Also when they shall be afraid of that which is high, and fears shall be in the way, and the almond tree shall flourish, and the grasshopper shall be a burden, and desire shall fail:  because man goeth to his long home, and the mourners go about the streets:  Or ever the silver cord be loosed, or the golden bowl be broken, or the pitcher be broken at the fountain, or the wheel broken at the cistern.  Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was:  and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.  (Ecclesiastes 12:  1-7, King James Version, KJV)


THE DOUBLE DAGGER:  Eternal Life From GOD (10/24/2016); Eternal Mysteries and Revelation (08/31/2016); Sin Also Made Incarnate? (04/25/2016); Life Is In Blood (12/08/2015);  Meanings That Support Eternal Existence? (06/02/2015); That Mortal Children Die? (12/15/2013); Going It Alone? (12/16/2013)


“Anonymous”, here are some points on existence that many mature Christian believers continue to reflect on:

(1)  Existence is put forth by divinity and is different from having such attributes in Creation as awareness (we say, consciousness, intellect or mental abilities, mind), having measurable and visible carnal or material form, having life, having sensibility (e.g., hearing, seeing, tasting, touching), and having mortality (a predetermined end to “duration”).

(2)  The existence of GOD is correctly known through the active presence of divine substance within created beings and living creatures as well as within the diverse and multiple objects that make up their spheres of existence.  Thus, GOD is described as the origin for all form, order, process, enduring quality, and value.

(3)  The existence of mankind as a “living soul” is through the joining of material form (soil from the earth that was put forth by the Holy Spirit) and sacred content from the makeup of GOD (we also say, breath, life essence, word).  The endowment of spirit content from Deity included such inseparable aspects for human existence as faith, holiness, joy, longsuffering, lovingkindness, trust, wisdom, and wrath against sin.

(4.)  When a person completes their mortal existence (i.e., at a person’s death), there is a separation of the carnal and physical elements from those that are divine.  The divine material continues to exist, yet, may not be “collected”, “coherent” or “connected” as before.  The dead continue to exist pertaining to multiple divine purposes, including the fulfillment of sacred proclamations, promises, and prophecy.  The total annihilation and removal of existence is called the second death, and involves the absolute and permanent separation from divinity and from all that will be permitted to exist.

There is far more to be said, understood, and spiritually apprehended.  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.
