Encountering Absolute Rest

by Burk Parsons

All human beings are made in the image of God, and all human beings know God created them, whether or not they want to admit it. We know that God created us with an insatiable desire for goodness, truth, and beauty. By nature we know we need these three things and that we need them absolutely. We do not yearn for partial goodness, truth, and beauty but for complete and absolute goodness, truth, and beauty. We strive after these three essential qualities because we can’t help but strive after them. Just as God has put eternity in our hearts (Eccl. 3:11), He has put goodness, truth, and beauty in the very fabric of our souls. And as we eternally desire infinite goodness, truth, and beauty, so the God who embodies these has created us to know Him, the only infinite one, who is the beginning and the end of all goodness, truth, and beauty. As such, by God’s design, we will never grow tired or bored in our pursuit, knowledge, and love of these transcendentals that find their fulfillment in God Himself.

In his Confessions, Augustine prayed, “Great art Thou, O Lord, and greatly to be praised; great is Thy power, and of Thy wisdom there is no end. And man, being a part of Thy creation, desires to praise Thee… . Thou movest us to delight in praising Thee; for Thou hast formed us for Thyself, and our hearts are restless till they find rest in Thee.”

Our hearts are restless without God, and they won’t fully cease to be restless until we see Him face to face, coram Deo, and find our final rest and fullest expression of worship in the One who created us to worship Him and be fully satisfied in Him. As believers, just as the Author of our faith made us dependent to find rest in Him at our conversion, so the same Finisher of our faith is about the unrelenting business of making us dependent everyday of our lives to find daily rest in Him alone.

However, as self-made men with idols that look just like us, we are constantly chasing after mere shadows of goodness, truth, and beauty. We catch a glimpse of what tickles the ear, fancies the eye, and amuses the mind, and we chase after it with all our might. Both the enemy within and the enemy without have become successful partners in manufacturing appealing idols that have the appearance of goodness, truth, and beauty, attempting to draw our eyes from the Creator to the created. But as it is, all creation sings God’s glory, and wherever we find goodness, truth, and beauty, may we draw our eyes from the created to the Creator.
---
Byron notes: Your mission, Jim, should you decide to accept it,
is to discover this wonderful Creator, Who Loves You, today,
while there is still breath in your lungs.
You keep saying: When I SEE, I will believe; God declares:
When you Believe, you Will See.
Repent. Stop arguing with God. Cease running FROM Him. He wants
you to turn TO Him. To Run with all your might Towards Him.
When you do that you will Find Him!
God Created Physics, Chemistry and Biology. When you SEE God,
your heart will Honor, and Worship Him for His Creation!
To SEE Him, you must be Born Anew. A New Creation!
Your sins, disobedience and rebellion have separated you from
Seeing Him. (From the Fall of Mankind into sin @ Eve's denial
of The Truth. Which Adam agreed with and did also disobey.)
But even though unconverted and unregenerated, your sin today
keeps you in a state of Spiritual Death, God has made a way,
one way, in which your sins can be forgiven and forgotten.
This is accomplished by God in your heart and soul when you
merely LOOK to His Blessed Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, on His
Cross - dying for YOU!

If you continue to refuse to do this ONE THING, you will not
See God.

What do you think is the better decision?

You do not need a Church. Nor a Priest. Not a Pope, nor
anything to understand God's Love for you.

You don't need to compare God's Christianity to the people
who claim to be Christians. You don't need to find fault in
the Leaders, the Priests of the so called catholic faith to
locate our Loving God. (His final judgment will prevail for
their sins should they fail to fully repent.)

God wants YOU to fully repent and live uprightly.

Take your eyes off of MAN.

Turn your eyes, and your heart and soul to God.

He is Revealed to us in His Word, the Bible.

Even though you have read it (Have You?) if you're not
Born Anew, you CANNOT understand it.

But WHEN you are converted, made NEW and given of God a New
Life, you WILL be enabled to Understand These Most precious Words!

Augustine said, "Our hearts have a God shaped HOLE and will only
discover complete fullfillment when HE Fills that space."

God's Blessed gift to you is FREE MORAL AGENCY. (Free Will)

In mercy and grace - He allows each of us to Choose...

Peace. May you find that Rest you seek.

I offer this in love to my fellow Radio Control Flyers with
the hope of bringing you to the Knowledge of the Truth!

Take God at His WORD or continue to Argue with HIM....

{Feel completely free to argue with God here if you like.}

You Are Free to Choose.

What is the Goal here?

Perhaps I failed to mention this one really important fact:

The GOAL of our personal understanding of our Creator
and the encompassing contrition and repentance that
will accompany the converted and regenerated born again
human soul is:

Our personal Resurrection from Death.

Fris and Out: With your attitude, you're most likely
NOT going to make it. So party your fool heads off while
there is still time to do so...

This incredible wish of man's heart is a reality to
those who will come to God His Way.

He proved it when His Blessed Son Arose from His Grave.

Allah is a false god, created by MAN, not God.

Under this man's system (A bad copy of the REAL GOD)
one must WORK their way to a 'heaven'. And there is
never any assurance of salvation.

Under the REAL God's commitment to us, we CANNOT work
our way to His Heaven - it is a GIFT...

And having received His Most Precious Gift, one has
personal assurance.

Faith in the Resurrection of Jesus Christ is the Key.

Don't argue with me. This is what the Bible says to
ANYONE who will read it and believe it and receive it!

Can you do that?

If NOT - you will perish in your sins.

I want to live forever. I have received His Gift.

I love Jesus Christ.

He Loves you too...

I was on my way, till I saw they used two different designers for the left, and the right side of the bike.
Man If I could only get a Double-left version...

Back to the topic, yes, I agree 100%.
God is not the issue here, Jesus Christ is. If you've accepted him as your personal saviour, you're sorted.

Concentrate on your weaknesses and your strengths will reward you!

If he knew so much then why would he be so ignorant to let so many people die and murder in his name. Apparently common sense wasn't created by him!

The largest percentage of people die at man's hand. Obviously, the murders are again at man's hand. Not God's.

Not God's.

Jesus was a great MAN who is dead he will never return, to bad the christian church hid the fact he was married to the once whore and had children together. [who was also his leed opostle]

Dennis that is a outrigt lie, old age, disease and natural disasters kill far more then any man could ever kill. Please do your homework before you spout off missinformation.

the christian religeon has butchered million in the name of the cross in the last 2010 years, its on of the more barbaric religeons with muslim trash not far behind. The christian religeon continues to kill millions even today with there stance on conterceptives in africa where the people breed like rats and 1 in 4 have aids. the church still tells them NOT to use conterceptives despite aids running rampant.

My family on my wifes side has died at the hands of filthy christians when those scumbags invaded Peru in the name of the cross to rape the country's gold.

Raised in a private christian church school and extensive historical research into the facts behind the real authors and translation of the bible I know I have my facts down.

Well, thats your opinion and your are entitled to it if thats what you choose. Thats fine. Especially based on your background.

Others are entitled to differing opinions based on their background. There are many out there. In fact, I am sure you will find that there are those who have experienced far worse backgrounds than yours, mine or anyone else here and still have deeper faith than either you or I could ever have. Its a choice. Very simple.

Old age is just what it is. Old age. We cannot live forever. God only promises you that you can live forever in the ever lasting. If you have no faith, its obvious that you cannot swallow that. Thats fine. Its your own choice. Deal with it.

Natural disasters are also just natural disasters. If people do not prepare for them, they can die because of them. I don't recall that God said he would save all from natural disasters.

Where is the lie here? No biggee. You don't have to answer that. Others can decide for themselves.
