All the animation - click here !

Since I get such a kick out of blathering on about this stuff, I'm continuing the discussion of the animation HESUS JOY CHRIST / Matthew's One Too!

This is the last verse of Matthew's One Too ! so give me a week or so to set up to discuss Matthew's Two .

Verse 25

from the Gospel of Matthew, Chapter One, New International Version

25 But he had no union with her until she gave birth to a son. And he gave him the name Jesus.

Verse 16

from the text of the animation HESUS JOY CHRIST / Matthew's One Too !

written by R David Foster

16 He had no union with her until separated, and animated Marriage, which he called “Emmanuel“, meaning “ God with us “ .

Verse 16 Discussion

NIV Bible text verse 25

If the parents of Jesus were suppose to be legitimate when he was born they may be considered to have to have had marital relations so as to consummate their marriage ! As the story goes, they did not consummate their marriage until after Jesus was born, if they ever did, Mary being ever virgin ! The whole situation is ripe with bending the rules ! This is the point ! A living God is not bound by His own rules, and frequently transcends them.

This is what many people take as an indication of the powers at be being at work – the transcending of natural rules and laws; so much so that they chase “miracles” and supernatural occurrences. The point, though, is that we are not to worship the laws of God, but rather we are to worship the living God Himself, who is beyond His laws. God wants not only a personal relationship with each of us, He wants a loving personal relationship with each of us. He sets us up to encounter Him, yet we dismiss His presence as a coincidence, or luck, or the scheme of another.

In my life, I try to be self reliant, responsible, attentive and dependable. This leads me to be apart from God as the personal source of my entire life, ever present and ever patient, wanting me to know and love Him. I did everything by the rules in getting married, and this marriage failed. God wanted me to know Him, not just His rules. I now may not rely on my obedience to rules, as my salvation, as the rules have become impotent, and fail to offer a solution to my salvation. It is God alone who saves, rather than humanity's religious institutions and understandings of God's law. So much so that Jesus Himself was a criminal.

Where Joseph named Jesus, which means “the one who saves”, I named the animation Immanuel, which means “God with us”. I try to present God to the audience in personally meaningful ways, with koan statements and presentations of the first book of Matthew in my life.

The Matrigeneosophy of the Created, is a list of the “generations” preceding the coming of the animation of HESUS JOY CHRIST, as the genealogy of Jesus is a list of the generations preceding the coming of Immanuel. The Birth of the Created, is the story of how the animation came about to being made. As a balance of whole and part, which is what I strive for, the animation is Christ like, as far as Christ is a balance of whole and part.

Matthew's Two Four is the story of the end of my previous “life” and the beginning end of this “life”, as foretold by Jesus in the twenty-fourth chapter of the Gospel of Matthew.

God is with us, even if we are unaware of Him. He does want us to be aware of Him, and not only aware of Him, but to thoroughly know him and even more, love Him. I often wonder if this is the meaning of life, to know and love God. But once one has gained this height, God sends them back with a task to serve His people, which is everyone, in a specific way under specific circumstances. This is what they mean when they say “take up your cross and follow Jesus”. This is very specific. One need just look around and see what is possible. If it is possible, it may be what God is calling one to do. But careful deliberation is necessary to determine if this is of God or else. I'll never know in this life if this animation is truly what God wants, but I pray regularly and earnestly, and day by day, more animation is getting done. Day by day . .. ..
