11 September: The Unknown God

With so many gods created in the minds of humans for millenniums, it’s hard to pick through the maze to find one worth following…

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY:

Interestingly, the longest continuing faith system known to any race in history, is embedded in the oldest continuing culture on earth. Incredibly, it shows fading imprints that seem to be dotted about all over the planet. Since an unknown point in history, indigenous Australians have lived in an unspoilt utopian haven, with a faith system that hasn’t been diluted, remixed, or influence by natural migration or global wars. Known simply as The Dreamtime, their faith is in something that was clearly there in the beginning, but has since been lost. They know it to be true because a sort of “thermal imprint” of it has been left behind as a vague memory. And the hope of it’s return, has been held onto and kept alive, by successive generations for millenniums.

Paul, a Jewish religious academic, found that the city of Athens in the first century AD, was awash with every god imaginable, but one stood out unique in the crowd. The “imprint” in ancient Athens, was found in a statue dedicated to the “Unknown God”. But the message he gave about the One who created FAITH in us, is a message that relates to us all – regardless of the timeframe we’re in, culture, lifestyle, or mind-set that we’ve adopted. The simple plea: to return to our Maker…

“In the past God overlooked our ignorance, but now He commands all people everywhere to repent. For He has set a day when He will judge the world with justice by the man He has appointed. And He has provided us all with proof of this by raising Him (Jesus) from the dead.” [v30-31]

Wanting to speak directly with the Creator of FAITH on Earth? The rest of this webpage uses Jesus’ own prayer to help…[a]

THE LORD’S PRAYER:

   1.   Praise: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your Name. Your Kingdom come! Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven …”

You put a new song in my mouth, Lord. It was a hymn of praise to our God. So I pray that many will see and fear the Lord. May they put their trust in You. [Psalm 40:3]

   2.   Ask: “…Give us today our daily bread…”

Just as the soil makes the green shoots come up, and a garden causes seeds to grow, so You Lord will make righteousness and praise spring up before all nations. [Isaiah 61:11]

   3.   Admit: “…Forgive us our sin as we forgive those who sin against us…”

Father God, help me to fix my thoughts on Jesus, whom I acknowledge as my Great High Priest so that I’ll share in His heavenly calling. [Hebrew 3:1]

   4.   Protect: “…Lead us not into temptation but delivers us from evil.”

Holy Spirit, strengthen me within so that I’ll not turn to the right or the left but will keep my feet from walking into evil. [Proverbs 4:27]

“For Yours Lord is the Kingdom, the Power and the Glory now and forever. Amen!”

When questioned, tested, tricked or in His hour of great need, Jesus spoke what was previously written in God’s Word.[d] So, the final section on this page is about memorizing the script through 10 topics.
