Reproclaiming the Everlasting Gospel

Three Questions and The Great Commission

Jesus told his disciples, "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations..."

Why make disciples of all nations? Because they have all abandoned the life mankind was created to live. They have abandoned the image of God and instead of living beings, they are lifeless.

So, I am brought back to the Garden and I hear the Voice of the Lord walking in the Garden calling, "Ha-a-dam where are you? Ha-a-dam, where are you?"

Mankind, finding they are naked, have hidden themselves. Then the Voice of the Lord asks, "Why are you here?" Ha-a-dam explains they have hidden because they found they were naked.

This nakedness is not a lack of clothing. Eventhough they covered themselves with "fig leaves" (and later animal skins) nakedness remained. This nakedness is the absence of life, the absence of the breath (spirit) that made them living beings. And only the covering of life does away with the nakedness. So how are we to be reclothed in life?

Joel stated,"And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my breath upon all flesh..."

"The breath? Yes, the breath provides the life I so want," cries lifeless Adam.

How are we to obtain this life that does away with our nakedness?

John stated in his prologue how the breath that breathed life into man is an intelligible Word, who was in the beginning and is the creator of all things. In the Word is life and the life is the light of mankind. “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us…” Jesus, this Word made flesh, stated: “The flesh profits nothing, it is the breath that gives life. THE WORDS I SPEAK TO YOU, these are breath, these are life.”

So we come to the third question: “Are you listening to the words I speak to you?”

These three questions give us a glimpse of the essence of the Creator:
• Adam, where are you?
• Adam, why are you here?
• Adam, are you listening to me?

Now, returning to our task of “Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations…” we see that we are to search, calling out to lifeless humanity, “Where are you?” “Why are you here?” “Will you listen to the Word made flesh who has the words of life?” Those who hunger after life will respond. Those who are proud of their fig leaves will spurn your efforts. And so we are to immerse those who seek life into the essence, the character, the authority (the name) of the Father who seeks for his lost sheep; into the essence, the character, the authority (the name) of the Son who speaks the words of life into the hearts of all who will hear; and into the essence, the character, the authority (the name) of the Holy Spirit who brings to the Son all who set their heart on finding life.
