This morning I woke up feeling really good. The sun was
shining through the second floor of our bedroom… and it
was cool out… the breeze coming through the open
window. The chickens were making noise out past the
rubber plantation that borders our rented home.
There are birds, but really many more butterflies than
birds around here. Not sure why. Very few birds here…
So I went to shower and as the water hit me and shocked me a little bit I heard God talking to me again like the wind and yet strong, no real emotion… just talking and I was just listening like his child…
“Jerry, there are many religions in the world… those that know me and those that don’t know me. Those that don’t know me are not ‘of’ me. If they not for me they are against me. I am for everyone to drink as the most pure water. I want the world to drink of me. All religions must join together under my name Jerry. See what you can do.”
Wow, see what I can do? God never really asked me to DO something before… I wouldn’t have any idea where to start. I didn’t talk, I just listened… my heart beat strong as I realized god wanted me to DO something. Jesus! How can I do something???
I went downstairs and had my coffee and cigarette. I don’t smoke much but I was still a bit shaken. In fact, I’m shaking now!
When Jimmy Swagart told me “the lord works in mysterious ways Jerry”, he wasn’t lying. Of course. The ways are a mystery to me. How does it expect me to convert the World?
What do we have – 7 billion people by now? Should I email them God? SMS? Blog and send links? I don’t know. I’m at a loss. In fact, I’ve been sitting here for 3 hours and 45 minutes smoking and eating nutter butter cookies while I figure out a starting point.
Aren’t there like a few hundred MILLION muslims? A BILLION Hindus? Hare Krishnas and Maharajas and everything else. Buddhists! How many Buddhists in China, Vietnam, India, Thailand, and Hong Kong? Another BILLION? Don’t the Buddhists’ believe that they ARE GOD? How do I convince them not to believe in themselves or their experience?
God, you gave us this mind… this logic… and we all believe things – that were handed to us and that we grew up believing without question. I believe my mom is a good person. I believe my GOD is you.
I don’t even think we’re in the majority as far as religions or believers go. Again, I might be wrong. How do I change someone’s beliefs that grew up believing something their whole lives??? Believing something that their FATHER or MOTHER told them… those kinds of things are not easily done.
How would someone convince ME to disbelieve in GOD? Impossible! HA! What a joke that would be. But, this was no joke. God said it.
I need to think for a while and no amount of writing is going to resolve this. I hope he doesn’t ask me anything else or remind me anytime soon.
I don’t really feel so well…
