The worship of the golden calf of old has found a new and heartless image in the cult of money and the dictatorship of an economy which is faceless and lacking any truly human goal.
The Known God
Life is marked by the perception of worth. The more you place value on a thing the more important it is to you, but have you ever considered why Moses wore a veil on his face when he came back from spending time with God and why the veil of the temple was torn in two when Jesus died upon the cross? And more importantly have you ever wondered why the most sacred name of God is lost to humanity though it is the one that should hold the greatest worth to us all?
Read these verses for the answer and you too will begin to see beyond the veil.
Matthew 1:23 … and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with (Within) US.
34 Jesus answered them… Ye are gods
35 …and the scripture cannot be broken
1 Corinthians 13:12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I AM known.
2 Corinthians 3:18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image…
11 And Moses said unto God, Who AM I…?
14 And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.
Hebrews 10:20 By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh
Matthew 26:26 And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body.
John 2:21 But he spake of the temple of his body.
2 Corinthians 6:16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
Though only a dim reflection it takes time for a child to grow to resemble their Father.
