1 Timothy 2:5; “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;”
Man has been transforming spiritually and physically which includes advancements in science, math, philosophy…ect for over 100,000 years when humans began to have emotions of love for one another, and had begun funeral rituals which was evidence of the beginning of man’s concept of the after-life. Rational thinking naturally began to increase, and since each concept fell short of the underlining realities or the cosmic universal the man needed to improve upon each concept which became a precept upon discovering the next concept. This brings one to the need of finding the higher concept which usually meant future survival for a Band of humans.
When man’s rational thinking developed to the level of one God who created All things and all knowing, humans toyed with the idea of where did everything come from; what is the purpose of life? As an answer inspired from God a Savior was born into the world.
The world became inundated with the belief that Jesus was our spiritual guide from the world unto the Kingdom of God. This gave credence to the existence of the Kingdom of God and paved the way to journey on a path to the Kingdom of Heaven in the name and authority of our Savior, Jesus. The journey, meaning also to go from precept after precept, has a campsite of the concept for the time until a new, higher concept has been discovered or a revelation is received than man moves to that campsite. This brings us to the question of “what is the next concept?” Where is the next campsite? The journeying because of a desire to be in the Kingdom of God is fine, but one need a guide, a knowledge of the path unto the Kingdom of God. I can furtherly state that this is also the path to happiness.
This brings us to the concept of a Mediator. The word itself implies that there is a compromise between two parties. Jesus, being the Son of God, knows His Father and the Kingdom. Matthew 6:33; “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you” lets us know that if one make a choice to follow Christ Jesus than God shall supply guidance on the journey and your material needs. The Son, Jesus, is the glory and the riches of the Father. We need only to turn to the Son for directions and all needs. If and when a question arises Jesus shall listen and hear the Father for our practical answers. The practical answer is not the complete answer; it is not the end to the journey, but can be viewed as the next campsite and food to eat alone with any other immediate need to allow the journey to continue unto the Kingdom of God and gain more happiness.
Einstein once stated that “any problem created at a certain level must be solved using a higher concept. It can not be solved at the same level of thinking in which the problem was created.” This acknowledges a need for a mediator in the affairs of men, and this is very practical to all men. God has been accused of being only in the distance heavens and have left man to struggle alone. This is not true. God has always been closer than a brother; you just haven’t turned to Him and stood still alone enough with expectations of seeing God. Jesus is that manifestation of God and is very relevant today as for always. Jesus is our Mediator Who receives and gives practical answers for our successful daily lives. JESUS IS THE RELEVANT ONE FOR ALL TIMES; JESUS IS GOD’S MEDIATOR FOR ALL MANKIND.
2 Corinthians 3:6 King James Version (KJV)
6 Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.
God is a Spirit. The spirit is first to exist followed by manifestations from the spirit which is in the physical realms for all men to see. Jesus possesses God’s Holy Spirit and hears every word from the mouth of God while giving the practical answers as needed for our daily life. Pray in the name of Jesus; God answers prayers.
