The BIG BANG
by Fred Pruitt
what Paul said about to one we are a savour of life, and to others the stench
By mercy and
grace we see death swallowed up in the midst of life so that there is only
life. Life and death and heaven and hell are only life and heaven in the end,
and one moment's touch of eternity opens everything as it really is, which is
that heaven is filling everything. Everything is filled with golden light.
Not some great mystical vision of being taken into the seventh heaven, just
inexplicable inward confirmation of the truly Real coupled with, every so
often, here & there, visual or emotional or intellectual or physical glimpses
of the eternal diffused into every moment ....
Basically what I'm struggling to say is that eternity is begetting time, and
the kingdom of God is the eternity Who is begetting our Time, and our lives in
that Time are His begetting, therefore they are His Joy, His Power, His Life,
His Love, and that He fills the Whole of it, the "it" being the Life He has
begotten in us.
The life He has begotten in us is what Norman said, "You ARE HE!"
To embrace this is to go past everything. It is the most dangerous thing in
the universe -- because it can be heard so wrongly. You are He? It's an atomic
bomb in the hands of a terrorist.
Yet this is the way to go. It's the heart of the matter. You are HE! It's
built into humanity to discover self.
Who can measure up? To being Him? If you think you do, you're doomed. Come
"I live yet not I but Christ" and "To me to live is Christ" and "Christ is all
and in all" are tall statements or tall tales. Tall tales to some to debate
about, but tall statements of a truth so vast and so cataclysmic and so
mind-wrenching as to go against every thought and belief and experience and
knowledge you ever thought you had in your whole life. It is blasphemous
blasphemous blasphemous in almost any circle to say "I am Christ living -- and
so are you."
Now that's is either a lie or the most volcanic BIG BANG totally mind-orgasming
riddle-anwering-mystery revealed out of the most secret depths of eternity,
that is when you look into it, as mind-boggling and brain-hurting as looking
out into to the stars on a clear night and trying to imagine how far infinity
is .... it is mystery revealed ....
Ye are the light of the world, ye are the salt of the earth ....
I live yet not I but Christ ....
This is really indeed the salvation of the human race ....
