"If I shut up the heavens and there is no rain; if I command the locusts to ravage the land; or if I let loose pestilence against My people, when My people, who bear My name, humble themselves, pray, and seek My favor and turn from their evil ways, then I will hear in My heavenly abode and forgive their sins and heal their land." II Chronicles 7:13-14
Introduction to the Quest For the ANCIENT OF DAYS
by Charles J. Voss
Welcome to the Quest for the ETERNAL CREATOR of the universe. The stars in the sky are proof of an overall power in the universe that somehow put them all in place and controls all that there is. The Designer of the universe must have an overall plan for ALL of the inhabitants of the earth. This is a search for that plan. The knowledge we learn as we travel on our own Quest for the Ancient of Days is invaluable. Much of the information we have learned can be found on this web site and we invite your comments.
To Quest for the Ancient of Days is very simple. Read the Hebrew Scriptures (Old Testament, Tanakh) and simply believe and do what they state as they are perfect (Psalms 18:30). No other book is needed; no personal advisor is needed. What it states is what it means. The Hebrew Scriptures states that ONE Being (Deuteronomy 4:35) created this entire cosmos (Genesis 1:1) and created human life (Genesis 1:27) on planet earth. This Mighty One gave us a righteous standard to live by (Psalms 119:172). Since all sinâ€”breaking His righteous Standard as explained by His Laws (Amos 2:4)â€”is against Him (Psalms 51:4), thus only He can forgive sin (Isaiah 43:25-26). Therefore, He alone is our Savior (Hosea 13:4).
He gives us His Commandments because He loves us and the Commandments are for our well being. ETERNAL is the most loving Father there could ever be. See our article "The Love of the SOVEREIGN."
These Commandments constitute a high and righteous standard for us humans to live by. Many say the Commandments cannot be understood and many say that the standard is too high and we cannot live by it. Did you know these alibis are not modern new age thoughts? The Children of Israel, while yet in the desert, complained to Moses about these thoughts. This is the reply Moses gave them...
Deuteronomy 30:11-16 (NLB). ...Obeying these Commandments is not something beyond your strength and reach; for these laws are not in the far heavens, so distant that you canâ€™t hear and obey them, and with no one to bring down to you; nor are they beyond the ocean, so far that no one can bring you their message; but they are very close at hand--in your hearts and on your lips--so obey them.
We have access to much knowledge in these latter days (Daniel 12:4). We can read His words that He has given us and learn directly from Him.
Is it hard to do the CREATOR's Will? No, not at all. We just have to make up our minds that what He says is what we are going to do and follow through with it. Where it becomes hard to follow the Commandments is when we look to man, government, society, family, etc. to get their approval instead of looking to our SOVEREIGN for His backing and approval.
Nevertheless, let us consider Adam and Eveâ€”they were sent out into the world unpreparedâ€”they had no clue as to what to expect. WHY? Why would a loving CREATOR send them out into the world so unprepared? The greatest blessing and the first command to them both was to make babies. Nothing more, nothing lessâ€”just make babies and not eat the fruit of one tree.
So why? Didn't the SOVEREIGN know that the adversary would tempt humankind into all sorts of wrong religious practices that would bring unhappiness? Yes, He knew. So why did He set the world up this way? Because He is seeking a staff of people who have learned from not barging through the red flags that most people overlook in life. He wants to find people that will heed His ancient writings and seek Him out. People who are tired of the pain in the â€œschool of hard knocks.â€ People who cry out to Him for forgiveness and for the gift of His Spirit and His love. People who will use the gift of His love to teach othersâ€”if not in this world then they are preparing to use the gift in The Wonderful World of Tomorrow.
Some might say we are commanded to love ETERNAL (Deuteronomy 6:5; 30:16) and there is no love given in return, but that is not correct. There is a streaming torrent of love that flows from Him. Human kind, made in His Own Image, has rejected that love beginning with Adam and Eve. They did not care about pleasing their Maker, they cared more for satisfying their own feelings.
All humans let feelings get in the way of doing what is right as defined by the Ancient Writings we call Scripture. We forget to remember that the inspiration behind those Ancient Words was inspired by the Ancient of Days who started with only Himself and His energy and created and formed the cosmos and all that is in it. He did that for one reason.
What is that reason? He CREATED all of this to produce millions upon millions of human beings in a learning and testing situation. Why is that? He is looking for a staff to teach the rest of humanity in The Wonderful World of Tomorrow. Why? So that He will have a family of millions, nay billions that want to dwell with Him as He is desirous to dwell with us His children.
The goal of our Quest for the Ancient of Days is to share what we have learned on our quest for a closer walk and a better life. We are not perfect and we are not asking you to believe what we say just because we said it. We are asking you to find out for yourselves if these words are true or not. To follow that Quest you will need to care what our CREATOR thinks and you need to seek His Spirit and His love
The effort of your Questing for our ETERNAL CREATOR will be richly rewarded; you may not receive wealth and fame now, but you will have peace of mind and a rich understanding of our SOVEREIGN's Mind. In the Wonderful World of Tomorrow you can be part of the ETERNAL's staff to train the billions of humans who have been awakeded from the sleep of death and instruct them on how to have a happy fulfilled life.
