My name is Mark Heaney and I have been a bother of the Lord for about forty years. Right from the beginning of my relationship with God I have been intensely curious about any and every revealed aspect of him. Immediately after gaining my belief in Jesus Christ, and in the Father that sent him, I have worked very hard to learn what I could. I have spent many thousands of hours reading and rereading and many times re-rereading the Holy Scriptures in the hope of understanding my God as well as I might be able to. (The knowledge of God is by far the most important thing that you can ever gain in this world.)

Most of what I have come to know I received directly from the Lord, that is, for the most part I did not receive instruction from people, but rather I have immersed myself in the Scriptures, and relied on the Lord to open my heart and mind to understanding. I believe that in most respects my understanding came to me in the way that it came to our bother Paul as he stated in Galatians 1:12, “I did not receive it [his understanding of the Gospel message] from any man, nor was I taught it; rather, I received it by revelation from Jesus Christ.” (NIV84) If you would like to understand better what I am saying you can read my article titled Immigrating to Bibleonia here at SeekersTrove.com.

God, and his Son Jesus Christ, is the most important thing in the world. Nothing next to knowing God has any true value. God is the Creator, and he is the Sustainer, he, himself, is the reality in which we exist. That can be a difficult concept to grasp, but is critical if we wish to be able to have true understanding of God’s relative importance.

Revelation 22:13

I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. (NIV84)

God is all in all. The energy that powers our reality came directly out of God’s mouth, and is actively sustained by him. To be separated from God is to exist in the “phantom zone” to borrow a phrase from Superman. God is Eternal Life, and each and every one of the living exist in him. True death is an existence outside of God.

Think on these things.
