BEFORE THE WORLD BEGAN

Heaven and earth will disappear,
but my words will never disappear.
A lot has been written about the origin of the world. But, in the end, we confess they are all just theories, and nothing is definite, or 100% correct.
In the meantime, we go on asking the same questions: What is up there in the sky, and beyond? Did the Big Bang ever happened? Where were we before?
We fail, however, to ask a major question: what form, or forms, were we in?
In spite of having acquired a physical form, we’ve always wondered about a communication that is going on constantly, within us, reminding us that we are more than what meets the eye.
Unfortunately, we’ve a hard time listening. Why we give ourselves such a hard time used to be a major question for me, but no more.
It is clear from reading the Bible that everything existed “a priori.” As the dictionary explains, a priori means, “made before or without examination not supported by factual study.”
We are a consequence of what happened before the world began. Everything on this planet, represents an idea of what existed “before”and will continue to exist after the world ends.
“I tell you the truth, before Abraham was even born, I AM.”
LIFE, ON EARTH, IS BEAUTIFULLY PROGRAMMED TOWARDS THE CONTINUATION OF THE “A PRIORI.” It is like a feedback. We came from eternity. We are eternal. A priori cannot be fully experienced by humans while in the body form; but it can be imagined, and talked about.
Who, then, communicated this great experience to mankind? Jesus Christ. He prayed just before he was arrested:
I brought glory to you here on earth by completing the work
you gave me to do. Now, Father, bring me into the glory we shared
before the world began.
His experiences in this world did nothing to undo his eternal life of being one with God: a different form of being which ultimately can only be formless. In other words, he always knew that he was never separate from his Father: a Higher Intelligence and Energy which is beyond words.
This Higher Intelligence helped to write, compile, and coordinate the books of the Bible. The prophesies which were written for centuries, culminated with the birth of Christ, 2000 years ago.
Did Jesus pray just for himself? Absolutely not. Towards the end of his life, he prayed for future believers in this way; I pray that they will all be one just as you and I are one–as you are in me, Father, and I am in you. John 17:21
He was calling our attention to the state of unity that exists within all of us, and which can be completely experienced in the formless state.
We are walking on a very well structured road that began before the world began.
In this world, the devil rules. In the end, God wins.
