Greatest Creator

God and the Universe were having a discussion - who is the greatest creator.  
God said to the Universe, finally after much debate, “You win.”
The Universe replied, “Really?  So easily?  Why is that?”
God said, “Because you follow instructions so well!"

Hebrews 11:3 KJV
[3] Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God,
 so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

2 Corinthians 4:6 KJV
[6] For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, 
to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

The Castaways

Father does not cast humans ruefully away
Every soul, every soul that dies returns to God who gave them life.
He looks at them through the lens of Psalm 139 (vs 16)
Your eyes have seen my unformed substance;
And in Your book were all written
The days that were ordained for me,
When as yet there was not one of them.
He does not cast them away into hell with a grumble and a curse
They are led out of His presence by angels as He weeps over the loss of what the world and universe could have gained and been would these individuals had chosen to follow the design He "wrote in his book".

As Lightning from the East

Who is the real Messiah?
Will it be known when He arrives?
Will he be recognized?

It will be obvious!
To those who are watching!

Matthew 24:23-27 NASB
[23] Then if anyone says to you, 'Behold, here is the Christ,' or 'There He is,' do not believe him. [24] For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect. [25] Behold, I have told you in advance. [26] So if they say to you, 'Behold, He is in the wilderness,' do not go out, or, 'Behold, He is in the inner rooms,' do not believe them. [27] For just as the lightning comes from the east and flashes even to the west, so will the coming of the Son of Man be.
