God's View of Our Life! The diagram below represents God's view of man's life-cycle. And actually, there is no other way to see life realistically. From God's viewpoint man's life is a full circle comprising both his life on earth and in heaven. A person without faith often views his life as a half-circle, the upper half circle only. That is, he only sees a life that is from his physical birth to his physical death. That is, numbers 2, 3, 5. What he doesn’t see is numbers 1, 4, and 6. He may not believe there is a God, a heaven, an eternity or afterlife (the bottom half of the circle). But the man with a biblical faith, who has been spiritually awakened, understands that he was created by God in His image, has a deep need to seek after the God whose image he bears, and finds himself homesick for God. He knows that one day at the end of this earthly life he will return to his heavenly home with God, where he will be re-united with all those he loves and who love him. The person (man, woman, child) with a biblical faith has the spiritual discernment to understand that there are 6 (SIX) momentous points of change and transition in every person's life. All of them are not of his choosing, except number 4. Only you can open yourself to being spiritually awakened. 1. Spiritual Conception = Each person is spiritually conceived in the heart and mind of God with an immortal soul. Once so conceived by God, he will live forever. God imagines the person in His own Image, which is to say, the Image of the Father's Son, Jesus Christ. 2. Biological Conception = Each person is biologically conceived in a mother's womb by parental fertilization. Some nine months later...... 3. Physical Birth = A child is born into the world. 4. Spiritual Birth or Awakening = If a person hears the Word of God, the gospel of Jesus Christ the Savior; through the action of the Holy Spirit, he is quickened or awakened to new spiritual awareness. He is, as is said, born- again, regenerated or saved. Of the six points of change in a person's life, this 4th one is the only one in which the person must exercise his or her own free will. 5. Physical Death = Each person must come to the end of his earthly life. His body dies and decays, but his spirit and soul live on. Then...... 6. Eternal Birth = Each person, having an immortal soul, enters into eternal life. The spiritually awakened Christian; the person spiritually awakened by the Holy Spirit through faith in Jesus Christ, is united to God in Heaven. The unsaved, spiritually asleep person faces the second death and eternal banishment from God. This separation from God is Hell!
