God’s Purpose By Art Mokarow

Was The Gospel preached before The Bible was written?  Mankind existed for about 2,500 years before Moses was told by God at Mt. Sinai to write The Letter of The Law, The Torah.  Didn’t humanity know about God and His purpose before the written Word?

Why did God wait 2,500 years before mankind had a written account about The Purpose of Life and who made it all come to pass?  In fact, before God told Moses to write The Law, he only intended to give The Ten Commandments for Moses and The Israelites (II Corinthians 3:1).  Initially, The Ten Commandments were not written at all, only spoken directly to Israel through one of His messengers.  After God’s messenger spoke The Ten Commandments, God said, He added no more (Deuteronomy 5:22).  At that point, God didn’t intend to do anything else.  When Moses and The Elders went up to Mt. Sinai, only then did God tell Moses to write The Ten Commandments on two tablets of stone.  Why did God speak The Ten Commandments and then have Moses write them in stone?  You need to understand God’s reason for His decision to have a book written when for 2,500 years there was no book.  Eventually, this book became the entire Bible or God’s words (II Timothy 3:16). 

Why did God want His words in writing?  Before answering these questions, you need to know why God, initially, wanted to create the universe and human life itself.  It is really important for you to know what God’s purpose is.  Once you find out that purpose, you need to know why He wanted to create mankind and the universe.  To help you study The Bible and to understand it, you must begin with God’s purpose.  When you read a book and do not know what the author’s motive for writing it is, this can cause confusion. 

About The Author

Most books introduce the background of the author and the preface usually tells of the author’s intentions for writing the book.  In The Bible, God only states, “In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth(Genesis 1:1).  There was no introduction about God and His Book.  As written in God’s Puzzle Solved, God intended for His Book to be a mystery (Isaiah 28:10).  The Bible answers these questions so you know these writings are inspired by God (II Timothy 3:16).  So, to find the answers to these questions you must discover them from God, Himself, in The Bible. 

In God’s Puzzle Solved, God is an all powerful, spiritually handsome, glowing beauty with flaming fire and unlimited ability.  That is what God looks like and all His titles explain His capabilities.  What about God’s nature?  God is Love (I John 4:8).  The word “love” in Greek means “agape” or “completely charitable or giving.”  I Corinthians 13 defined agape love definitively.  In nature, one who has agape love must give to others.  That is why God told Adam “it is not good for a man to be alone.”  God was manifesting His heart and nature (Genesis 2:18).  You now have a partial understanding of the very nature and character of the author of The Bible.  Now, to answer some questions mankind has asked for thousands of years.

God’s Pleasures

Happiness is predicted upon pleasure.  Pleasure can be good or bad.  Mankind’s nature can be good or bad.  It was proven early on when Adam and Eve ate from the wrong tree (Genesis 3:5).  In fact, Jesus said, the greatest love a human can have is to give his life for a friend (John 15:13).  God, by His very nature, obtains His greatest pleasure by giving all that He is.  God expresses His very nature by giving totally.  When God gives of Himself it must be like “kind after kind.”  For example, birds do not get pleasure from what a human may want.  Birds do not receive pleasure from lions or any other animal.  They would rather get the early worm and survive.  So, it is “kind after kind” and not evolution.  In order for God to receive pleasure, He needs to share with His kind.  Paul revealed that God had pre-destined to adopt children by Jesus Christ (Ephesians 1:5). 

God is beautiful and couldn’t be more loving.  It is an adoption however, since God first, being God, had to create humans to have free choice or they wouldn’t be like Him.  This human existence is a life of free choice or liberty.  Once you choose God, in faith, you will have eternal Life.

Paul now answers the question of what gives God pleasure. Because of his loving nature to share all he is, Paul said this mystery was revealed to God’s saints, only.  According to God’s pleasure, which God has purpose in Himself (God’s desire), that through Christ, all things (created) will be one which is in heaven and on earth (Ephesians 1:9).  This is a glorious and wonderful plan.  What gives Him pleasure is to have a family exactly like Him, so He can give all that He is.  There aren’t enough words to praise Him.  In God there is no darkness, only light or truth, so you can see and understand if you choose God (Matthew 13).  As usual, there is a scripture which clearly reveals what you have just read.

I Corinthians 15 is known as the resurrection chapter.  Jesus must rule until He puts down all of God’s enemies (I Corinthians 15:25).  Certainly God wouldn’t put people to death if death is God’s enemy.  This wouldn’t make sense and would be a contradiction of God’s very nature to give.  Death and giving is in direct conflict. God can only give life!  The last enemy God destroys is death.  Jesus at this time frame, when death is ended gives the rulership of the universe to God (I Corinthians 15:28).  What is the result?  That God may be All and in All!”  Paul said this in Ephesians.  God’s final purpose is for the entire universe including all mankind to be holy as He is (I Corinthians 15:3).  Now you know God’s real purpose for mankind and why we were all born.  To make Bible Study Easy, you must read every spec and word from paradigm or view points.  The Bible is God’s very purpose to save everyone.  He makes them Holy as He is.  God is creating sons and daughters by adoption (human form) to be just like Him through His Holy Spirit.  This is the first principle as to why God has His Word, The Bible, written in order to give us the path to become, like Him.  Every time you study The Bible don’t use your human imagination in place of what God is telling you.  If you do, you will find a multitude of reasons or logical sense, but, then you are only using man’s words and not God’s words.  It is your free choice.
