Money in the Bank (by Olubusola Oladeinde)

People go through life not knowing what to get. Men walk the face of the earth thinking “Where would my resources come from?” But there is money in the bank waiting for the men of the earth. This money in the bank is sitting gathering dust. In order to get, one must draw near, but before one draws near, he must heed the call of another.

Men of the earth, O men of the earth!
The first man doesn’t know if there is money or not. He can’t hear people calling out. So, he never discovers that the money is gathering dust.

The second man knows. He has heard whispers but he doesn’t know where to look. He’s not covering the distance; he’s not drawing near.

The third man, the ignorant third man. He knows where the bank is but chooses to be uninterested, thinking, “Why should I draw near? Why should I receive?”

Look within (by Hohenheim)

There was once a king in a distant land, his city was excellent yet he desired more. In that region, his kingdom was one of many Kingdoms; all more splendid than his, so glorious and wonderful than any thought could fathom. This king, day after day stood at the wall of his kingdom gazing over the vast land into these other kingdoms admiring their beauty, their splendour and their unimaginable greatness. With each day that passed, with each gaze, his heart grew sour, full of sadness and despair and he desired more than anything for his kingdom to be like these kingdoms in their statures as he thought nothing could be more than these. So he set out to fulfill his desire and employed every art and science to achieve this goal. Still unable to fulfill his desire, he grew more and more frustrated and so, he sought the help of magic.

So, I watch Game of Thrones…

game-of-thrones-cast.jpg

Beyond the exhilarating tussle amongst the various nobles and exiled heiress (aka. Daenarys Stormborn of the House Targaryen, the First of Her Name, The Unburnt, Queen of the Andals, the Rhoynar and the First Men, Queen of Meereen, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Protector of the Realm, Lady Regnant of the Seven kingdoms, Breaker of Chains and Mother of Dragons) for the illustrious Iron throne, the show has caught the attention of many for reasons other than its remarkable plot. It is quite difficult to miss the gratuitous bouts of sexual raunchiness, extreme bloody violence and the ubiquitous depictions of cultural and religious taboos that shadow the HBO chef d’oeuvre.

In a bid to protect another similarly vulnerable ‘Iron throne’ housed within the confines of my skull’s red keep, I have wrestled with the decision on whether or not to watch the blockbuster a myriad of times. The series has in fact cycled between the recycle bin and video folder of my computer a couple of times. My surmise was that, one can only see so many gory decapitations and rapes before thoughts related to the aforementioned become implanted in the maze of his mind, seeking an escape route to a less ephemeral and more tangible aspect of his humanity, expression.

Life Song (by Ohis)

Ever listened to a song and felt it was talking to you or about you? It is said that music is an expression of the soul. Every song we hear is an expression, a view of someone’s consciousness. By extrapolation of this concept, the world we live in, has its own song, an expression of a consciousness, the divine’s consciousness.

Created to Create

Elohim, the Hebrew word for God that appears in the very first sentence of the Bible, gives an insight into God’s creative power. He, Elohim, was able to create out of nothing, everything; not with his hands, but with words that helped materialize the creativity that was already resident in His mind. In essence, God, before the actual creation commenced, had already imagined/conceived creation. Some may argue against God having a mind. Consider the following verses and the capitalized words therein:

For I know the THOUGHTS that I THINK toward you, saith the Lord, THOUGHTS of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Jeremiah 29:11 KJV.

For who hath known the MIND of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ. 1 Cor. 2:16 KJV.

To most it is old news that we were created in the image and likeness of Elohim (Gen 1:26). Since this is the case, it is therefore not bizarre to conclude that we were created to create (because our Creator created creators).

Timeless God

One of the greatest mindboggling concepts that I have never been able to completely wrap my head around is that of time. Several physicists, philosophers and theologians even, have since forever, tried very desperately, to untangle the threads of this enigma, one that didn’t exist until Genesis 1:1.

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

We live in a physical world governed by four known space-time dimensions: length, width, depth and time. God is not limited by the physical laws (including time) that govern our world.
The above verse reveals that God existed/had been existing before the beginning of time. As you (reader of this article) can tell, I’m encountered with a conundrum on what the proper tense for such a verb (exist), describing an action that has already been going on, since before time, should be. Truth be told, it is an open secret that language is flawed: making provision for a tense that describes actions that are past, present and future; but reserving none for actions that have been going on before time (i.e. before the past) and that are yet still continuous (Rev 1:8). This would explain His reply to Moses in Exodus 3:14.
