“What is God’s greatest created miracle?” Anna asked Fynn. I am afraid I was just as much at loss as Fynn when Anna posed that question. In order to answer Anna’s question we have to return to what transpired in Genesis 1. God is taking a great muddle, as Anna called it, and created order out of it. For each day more order is manifested in the universe and what is created is more complex than what was created the day before. At day six the pinnacle of the creation is created; man. Thus, I concurred with Fynn when he answered man. When Anna said no I admittedly was just as confused as Fynn. Well, wasn’t it so that the woman was created after the man? Then it has to be the woman. No again from Anna!
What both Flynn and I overlooked in our quest for the answer is that there is a seventh day when God rested. But for Him to rest He had to create rest as Anna so brilliantly pointed out to Fynn. Rest is God’s greatest created miracle. The author of the epistle to the Hebrews says that we have to struggle to enter that rest. Anna has even sorted out why that is the case. You see, all that muddle was put into us so we have to go through the six days before we enter that rest.
We will now leave behind “Mister God, this is Anna” by Fynn and attempt to solve this riddle concerning rest without Anna’s spiritual genius.
The Bible quite plainly states that Jesus Christ is life, power and love (1 John 4:8, John 14:6, 1 Cor 1:24). All those features which we all yearn to be ours are attributed to a person. All those things aren’t something He has, but is. Nothing much left to us then, is it? Col 3:11 says that Christ is all. He thus is eternal life and rest as well. We all walked the path quite a while before the revelation hit us that Christ lives in us. We went through the six days in our consciousnesses before we came to the seventh day and there painted before our eyes was Christ in us.
Of course, He was there all along. We just didn’t know. But, now, when we have come to this seventh day in our consciousness we have entered His rest. That verse in Col 3:11 doesn’t merely say that Christ is all, but He is in all. Well, we have nothing, but isn’t it so that if He lives in us then we have become everything He is? Is it not what John means when he says that we are as He is in this world? So we have gone from having nothing to be everything. We are love, power and eternal life. We even thought we had eternal life through Jesus Christ, but it turns out that we are eternal life. Do you dare believe this? One day I meditated on that I am eternal life something else came to me, but I think I will save that for later.
