How important am I?

How important am I?

A question I think almost every person has asked at least once.

One answer is in the story of a man with a single note in each front pocket of his pants. In the right pocket, the note reads “I am nothing but dust and ashes”
And in the left pocket the note reads “For ME the world was created.” When he is full of his own importance he reads the Right Pocket. When he is down and troubled he reads the Left. In this way he finds balance in his life. –the proof of the truth, is in what follows.

I do not mean to sound condescending or smug about what I will attempt to explain as my answer for each of us, but I pray that I have it right and that you can understand the answer.

Foundation, really needed to build any understanding.

1) I am a speck of dust on a ball 24,667.39 miles circumference at the equator. Traveling on the ball at approximately 1,028 mph, which travels 587,542,595.52 miles a year in its obit of the sun, which is approximately 93,000,000 miles to the surface of our star.

Mass of the earth: Mass: 5,972,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 kg

Average human body mass globally was 62 kg. Just a speck of dust on this planet.

2) As of today, earth’s population is an estimated to be numbered at 7.063 billion by the United States Census Bureau (USCB)(wikipedia).

3) A star is 24,769,513,221,120 miles away, named Proxima Centauri, which is the next closest star to our own.

4) Man has estimated the size of the universe as: The region visible from Earth (the observable Universe) is a sphere with a radius of about 47 billion light years(wikipedia) –The next closest star to us is 4.5 light years away.

I am still a tiny speck on a particle traveling through this estimated vast distance and space, . . . . and yet I know the creator of all of this Knows ME and everyone of US –intimately.

One explanation of a connection we have with GOD is from Genesis 2:4) These are the generations of the heaven and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made earth and heaven. 5) No shrub of the field was yet in the earth, and no herb of the field had yet sprung up; for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground; 6) but there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.7) Then the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. [Translation is JPS 1917]

In this quotation we can see that creation was ready to begin growing and producing, yet it was not started because “there was not a man to till the ground”,a gardener if you will, so the earth waited for US. When we or the first man was created from the dust, there LORD GOD “breathed into his nostrils the breath of life” and the man became a “Living Soul’. It is that Breath of GOD or SOUL that is the most important connection with GOD. Through this connect, I believe that if for no other reason GOD knows everything about each of US. No matter where you on the earth, in it or above it. . . . GOD knows everything about me. I can not lie to GOD because I am truly KNOWN. What ever I have done, am doing or will do, the GOD of Abraham, GOD of Isaac and GOD of Jacob, that GOD sustains me and allows me to return to HIM if I am willing to stop doing that which is against HIS LAW and TEACHING.

Proofs: Ezekiel 18: 4) Behold, all souls are Mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is Mine; the soul that sinneth, it shall die. . . . 20) The soul that sinneth, it shall die; the son shall not bear the iniquity of the father with him, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son with him; the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him. 21) But if the wicked turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all My statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die. 22) None of his transgressions that he hath committed shall be remembered against him; for his righteousness that he hath done he shall live. This is great news for all of US, that we can return to GOD.

Now comes the WARNING!

Ezekiel 18:24) But when the righteous turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and doeth according to all the abominations that the wicked man doeth, shall he live? None of his righteous deeds that he hath done shall be remembered; for his trespass that he trespassed, and for his sin that he hath sinned, for them shall he die. 30) Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways, saith the Lord GOD. Return ye, and turn yourselves from all your transgressions; so shall they not be a stumbling block of iniquity unto you. 32) For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord GOD; wherefore turn yourselves, and live.

I know that I have taken pieces of text to present answers and evidence to support my observations. I have done this to demonstrate evidence to support my conclusions, and yet I truly encourage you to read the complete Chapters, Books and YES the FULL Tanach (a.k.a. OLD Testament) the more you read to seek understanding the More YOU WILL UNDERSTAND and KNOW.

My Intent here is to demonstrate that YOU are important to the Creator of the Heavens and the Earth.. All were created by design and for a definite outcome, of which WE cannot fully understand creation, our purpose or the CREATOR. We still continue to discover layers of wisdom and power, of which we have only scratched the smallest part.

It is great for me to know that while I am so small, I am known, desired and blessed by My Creator. I know that you can and should know this also.

May the GOD of Israel bless you and keep you in HIS care.

Okay, So Really How important am I? The Creator of the Heavens and the Earth did not create anything that was a waste. Even an ANT plays its part in the universe, while the ant seams small and insignificant, a single ant can bite at the exact moment required to change the current thoughts of the one bitten, which would change something else and that something else changes, . . . . Timing in the Tanach makes all of the difference every time. Moses, Cain, Noah, Abram(Abraham), Isaac, Samuel, David son of Jesse. In fact every person and every action is required in the correct sequence, at exactly the right time and with the correct observers.

How important are you? You have a definite purpose and value. One for which you are required to make all of the perfect choices and actions. Your choice to do or not to do is still yours to make and do. Maybe you should make the best choice you can. If all you do is hold space(in the universe) or just breath, you choice and your actions are known, and require you to do them. It’s a Wonderful Life is a movie that make a nice attempt to demonstrate the value of a life, any life.

In terms of human ideas, “the law of conservation of energy, first formulated in the nineteenth century, is a law of physics. It states that the total amount of energy in an isolated system remains constant over time. The total energy is said to be conserved over time. For an isolated system, this law means that energy can change its location within the system, and that it can change form within the system, for instance chemical energy can become kinetic energy, but that energy can be neither created nor destroyed.” —
