17 The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let the one who hears say, “Come!” Let the one who is thirsty come; and let the one who wishes take the free gift of the water of life.
~ Revelation 22:17
"I will make a covenant of peace with them; it will be an everlasting covenant. I will establish them and increase their numbers, and I will put my sanctuary among them forever. My dwelling place will be with them; I will be their God, and they will be my people"
~ Ezek 37:26-27
See Revelation 21 - IVP New Testament Commentaries
"Life is a Mighty Joke. He who knows this can hardly be understood by others. He who does not know it finds himself in a state of delusion. He may ponder over this problem day and night, but will find himself incapable of knowing it. Why? People take life seriously, and God lightly; whereas we must take God seriously, and take life lightly. Then, we know that we always were the same and will ever remain the same.......the Originator of this joke. This knowledge is not acheived by reasoning.
But it is the knowledge of experience."

So that's the purpose of the OP really, is to help you see that a total paradigm shift and new way of life is possible
If a Paradigm Shift were to occur with the current group think invading today's cultures, god would disappear...
Careful what you ask for zealot.

It's like a discontinuous, instantaneous switch between what was inauthentic relative to what is real and true and more freely self expressed - without opposition.
Nothing opposes me any more.
