Noah’s ARK

God has called upon me to spread this word.
I follow the word of god and preach the word of man, in order for man to attain the opportunity laid out by our creator and realize how perfect everything was made for us, after all.

>The Christian attitude toward death should be complete trust in God’s promises to us for salvation and restoration. And yet, many of us still harbor doubts and worries and fears. How do I know if I’m really saved? How can I be certain there’s really a heaven? We can pray and read our Bibles and talk to our pastors all we’d like, but some of us will still be troubled in the face of death. So what if there was another way?
Walter Rauschenbusch, Jürgen Moltmann, and, perhaps most famous for us, Martin Luther King, Jr all envisioned Christian work as being “builders” of the kingdom of God, working with God to realize the eschatological vision.
The key here, though, is that what God calls us to do is not resurrecting the dead, but rather caring for the living, as outlined in the Bible
Feeding the hungry, welcoming the stranger, clothing the naked, healing the sick and visiting the prisoner [Matthew 25]
This is what God Incarnate tells us we will be judged on. Our hope lies in the resurrection of the dead, but our faith in Christ calls us to act on behalf of the living.
In today’s society I believe we have become disconnected from gods love, words, and the vision he had for us on this earth. Let this piece of writing act as a piece of light towards bringing us closer to God, and bringing our actions towards developing a deep relationship again with him.
To my father:
You are literally a saint as a person, and it's taught me a lot about character and being a real man. I think you act on behalf of the living to a great extent. It's now become my mission. I understand that this type of philosophical drive that I have has previously been taken as not taking the time to “enjoy time together”.
Its certainly not natural for Christian families to view the games they play as a “waste of time”, but I do not believe we are a normal family which evidences God not having a normal plan for us.
To my family:
For us to take the time to not play the low hanging fruit games, and to define new strategy games we can enjoy playing in order to spread love into the world is a beauty that I forsee in our future.
We all use a lot of really top tier brain power when we compete against each other. This same brain power that was gifted to us in order to birth a better world for our fellow humans, and to even make a game out of it. Who can do X better. Thinking of and creating the game mechanics is part of the fun in it of itself. The world is a sandbox full of opportunity.
Since this may be hard to envision I feel it necessary to come up with a game myself now. Theres two different options in terms of our game style to impact others.
Instead of playing the direct board games,
Gamifying the action is a way we can bring more enjoyment to the activity. I have subjectively brought more enjoyment to all the small actions and attempts by really contemplating and becoming self aware at how the smallest action completely changes my life, and spawns an expanding effect on the timeline we live in.
This all falls in line with my vision for Flic, as many people SEEING the action increases the butterfly effect by an insane amount. Turning a ripple into a wave.

that, “When Adam and Eve eat (of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil) they interiorize that potential and make it real. … Suddenly, all of the things that were ‘good’ in the beginning have potential for evil.”
Unlike the first days of creation, not all things are good. We quickly learned about evil from that first tree.
So what to do? Before you say it, Selmys notes that the tree of life was not the immediate answer.
“The second tree is the antidote to this problem,” she wrote, “but it is also dangerous. When God banishes Adam and Eve from the garden and the tree of life, bodily immortality is no longer possible.” Instead, Selmys noted, God was merciful to kick us out. Imagine having eternal life, but living it in forever in an imperfect world. Imagine living eternally with evil.
In other words, the tree of life doesn’t offer an easy way out of the mess of good and evil unleashed. Things had to be set right first — good and evil had to be dealt with in this imperfect world before we could return to Eden’s perfection.

“Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” He said to me: “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I will give water without cost from the spring of the water of life. Those who are victorious will inherit all this, and I will be their God and they will be my children. But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”” ‭‭Revelation‬ ‭21:1-8‬ ‭NIV‬‬ https://bible.com/bible/111/rev.21.1-8.NIV
We can create this city.
“The angel who talked with me had a measuring rod of gold to measure the city, its gates and its walls. The city was laid out like a square, as long as it was wide. He measured the city with the rod and found it to be 12,000 stadia in length, and as wide and high as it is long. The angel measured the wall using human measurement, and it was 144 cubits thick. The wall was made of jasper, and the city of pure gold, as pure as glass. The foundations of the city walls were decorated with every kind of precious stone. The first foundation was jasper, the second sapphire, the third agate, the fourth emerald, the fifth onyx, the sixth ruby, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth turquoise, the eleventh jacinth, and the twelfth amethyst. The twelve gates were twelve pearls, each gate made of a single pearl. The great street of the city was of gold, as pure as transparent glass. I did not see a temple in the city, because the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and the Lamb is its lamp. The nations will walk by its light, and the kings of the earth will bring their splendor into it. On no day will its gates ever be shut, for there will be no night there. The glory and honor of the nations will be brought into it. Nothing impure will ever enter it, nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life.” ‭‭Revelation‬ ‭21:15-27‬ ‭NIV‬‬ https://bible.com/bible/111/rev.21.15-27.NIV

““Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.” ‭‭Revelation‬ ‭22:12-13‬ ‭NIV‬‬ https://bible.com/bible/111/rev.22.12-13.NIV
 
““Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood. “I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star.” The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let the one who hears say, “Come!” Let the one who is thirsty come; and let the one who wishes take the free gift of the water of life. I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this scroll: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to that person the plagues described in this scroll. And if anyone takes words away from this scroll of prophecy, God will take away from that person any share in the tree of life and in the Holy City, which are described in this scroll. He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus. The grace of the Lord Jesus be with God’s people. Amen.” ‭‭Revelation‬ ‭22:14-21‬ ‭NIV‬‬ https://bible.com/bible/111/rev.22.14-21.NIV
 
God will give us grace for showing mercy for those who sinned. For they did not have the same opportunity we had. This is the final test for us, to break what the scroll says, what would Jesus do. We take the risk of losing our share in the tree of life and the holy city. It’s a great sacrifice just like the one Jesus showed us how to make.

Genesis 6:3 And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
Written so long ago it predicted our limit so well.

This will never satisfy the longing in your heart.
This was meant to point your heart to where it would be satisfied.
They’re meant to point you to the place where your heart will ultimately be satisfied.
The sign is not the thing.
Lasting satisfying happiness will never happen.
These things are not intended to satisfy our heart. Our heart yearns for a reason, it’s intended to point us.
Only the glory of god can deliver that.
If one can believe in the evolution of man leading up to this part, paired with Christianity, one can also intertwine the end state of this world with the teachings of the Bible.
How do Christian’s really see evolution and genesis in pairing?
The end pairs far better in terms of not going off script or stretching the Bible’s word too much.
It actually ALLUDES to this future.

Self glory only in the alignment of helping to build the kingdom of god
Additionally, both Stoicism and Christianity serve the will of the Logos/God. They teach we can liberate ourselves from fear and anxiety by submitting to the will of the Divine.

We have been given the most glorious gift that can ever be given. This gift has the power to change you and everything about you. It has the power to finally satisfy the cravings of the heart, to liberate you from you. The gift of gifts, the gift that continues to give, an inexhaustible. The gift of the lord Jesus Christ.
You ask the box what it was never intended to do. The box is not the thing, the box delivers the thing to you.
The methods have changed over time the message has stayed the same.
I had to become all things to all people so that I may win some to Christ.
