on the move…
ready to go?
on a “spiritual” ride..:)
here’s an appetizer…aka “brief” readings (till i find/have time to share more; okay? 🙂 )
just a “friend” ly reminder: Hebrew “Yahweh” English “Jehovah”…
There is much more going on in support of Jehovah’s purposes than what we can see. For example, Ezekiel saw the invisible part of Jehovah’s organization depicted by a colossal celestial chariot. This chariot could move swiftly and change direction in an instant. (Ezek. 1:15-21) With each revolution of its wheels, the chariot could cover great distances. In vision, Ezekiel was also able to get a glimpse of the Rider of the chariot. He said: “I got to see something like the glow of electrum, like the appearance of fire all around . . . It was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of Jehovah.” (Ezek. 1:25-28) How awe-inspiring it must have been for Ezekiel to see this vision! He saw Jehovah in full control of his organization, directing its movement through his holy spirit. What an amazing representation of the heavenly part of Jehovah’s organization on the move!
“Ezekiel (Hebrew, Yechez·qeʼlʹ) means “God Strengthens.”
That Ezekiel actually wrote the book that bears his name and that it has a rightful place in the canon of Scripture is not in dispute. It was included in the canon in Ezra’s day and appears in the catalogs of early Christian times, notably in the canon of Origen. Its authenticity is also testified to by the striking similarity between its symbolisms and those of Jeremiah and the Revelation.—Ezek. 24:2-12—Jer. 1:13-15; Ezek. 23:1-49—Jer. 3:6-11; Ezek. 18:2-4—Jer. 31:29, 30; Ezek. 1:5, 10—Rev. 4:6, 7; Ezek. 5:17—Rev. 6:8; Ezek. 9:4—Rev. 7:3; Ezek. 2:9; 3:1—Rev. 10:2, 8-10; Ezek. 23:22, 25, 26—Rev. 17:16; 18:8; Ezek. 27:30, 36—Rev. 18:9, 17-19; Ezek. 37:27—Rev. 21:3; Ezek. 48:30-34—Rev. 21:12, 13; Ezek. 47:1, 7, 12—Rev. 22:1, 2. [excerpted: Bible Book Number 26–Ezekiel, “All Scripture Is Inspired of God and Beneficial”]
Including and excluded…
5 There are many things that Jehovah chose not to include in his written Word. For example, he did not provide details about how the brain works or how the universe functions, even though such information would have been very fascinating! Rather, Jehovah provided information that we need in order to understand his purposes and to live our lives in harmony with them. (2 Tim. 3:16, 17) How interesting, then, that the Bible does provide glimpses of the invisible part of Jehovah’s organization! We thrill at reading the descriptions of Jehovah’s heavenly arrangement written by Isaiah, Ezekiel, and Daniel and in John’s Revelation account. (Isa. 6:1-4; Ezek. 1:4-14, 22-24; Dan. 7:9-14; Rev. 4:1-11) It is as if Jehovah pulled back a curtain and allowed us to peer into the heavens. Why did he provide this information?Jehovah wanted us never to forget that we are part of a universal organization.[excerpted: “Make Sure of The More Important Things” w 4/15/13]
Visibility = scientific?! = Evidence??
Invisibility = unscientific?! = No evidence??
(What!? am i talking about? Some context.)
Description of this post: (a/my goofy writing of) sarcastic/snarky view of : visibility v. invisibility (flawed logic/reasoning “apparent” therein).
I cannot see gravity (per se) so it doesn’t exist –I skydive without a parachute, oh, how i love to walk without broken bones!
I cannot see electricity (per se) so it doesn’t exist–I hand wash all my clothes, and never eat toast and my communication limited?…most of all hate talking face to person.
What’s a microwave?? I don’t worry about radiation: I eat cold food and drink lukewarm tea most days.
Air? what’s that?…am turning blue and purple?? well, my lungs cannot be breathing oxygen, correct?
‘Are there some things that we cannot see with our eyes but that we believe exist because there are sound reasons to do so? What about the air we breathe? We may feel it when there is a breeze. We can tell that it fills our lungs, even though we do not see it. Because we see the effects, there is good reason to believe in it, isn’t that so?’ (2) ‘And we cannot see gravity. But when we drop something we see evidence that gravity is at work. Nor do we see odors, but our nose picks them up. We cannot see sound waves, but our ears detect them. So we believe in things we cannot see—provided there is good reason to do so, isn’t that right?’ [excerpted reading: Reasoning from the Scriptures: God]
Illustration: When we see a camera, a radio, or a computer, we readily acknowledge that it must have been produced by an intelligent designer. Would it be reasonable, then, to say that far more complex things—the eye, the ear, and the human brain—did not originate with an intelligent Designer? [rs p. 147: God]
0h, i’m being unscientific?!..cause I BELIEVE IN A GOD I CANNOT SEE!🙂
i’ve read (visible) books by (invisible) authors i’ve never met…yet…
Planet Earth: When crossing a barren desert, if you came to a beautiful house, well equipped in every way and stocked with food, would you believe that it got there by some chance explosion? No; you would realize that someone with considerable wisdom built it. Well, scientists have not yet found life on any of the planets of our solar system except the earth; available evidence indicates that the others are barren. This planet is, as the book The Earth says, “the wonder of the universe, a unique sphere.” (New York, 1963, Arthur Beiser, p. 10) It is at just the right distance from the sun for human life, and it moves at just the right speed to be held in orbit. The atmosphere, of a kind found only around the earth, is made up of just the right proportion of gases to sustain life. Marvelously, light from the sun, carbon dioxide from the air, and water and minerals from fertile soil combine to produce food for earth’s inhabitants. Did it all come about as a result of some uncontrolled explosion in space? Science News admits: “It seems as if such particular and precise conditions could hardly have arisen at random.” (August 24 and 31, 1974, p. 124) The Bible’s conclusion is reasonable when it states: “Of course, every house is constructed by someone, but he that constructed all things is God.”—Heb. 3:4.
men and women (myself included) write all these books, blogs, etc. to argue/prove/elevate our limited-imperfect-perspective-points (of view)… fictions? about trivialities.
May be? we need to take a break from reading fiction, and thoroughly examine/
Look at the living literature!…the “Book of Nature” …our planet, our universe, our bodies…speaking perfect, limitless volumes of Truth/evidence…albeit difficult to translate/analyze by arrogance.
Need some fresh air?
