I posted a thread about not wanting to exist forever. Now I am asking what part of us could possibly last forever?
Our memories? After a billion years times a billion, these memories would be gone.
Our personality? My so-called personality has changed in a very few years. How would a billion years times eternity effect my personality?
Our consciousness? Maybe. But what does that even mean?
What part of us makes it possible that we could exist for all eternity?
This is a great question to ponder. Do I want my body forever? I would rather have a new one. Do I want my personality? I try to change this each
day to improve on my actions and thoughts. Do I want to retain ignorance and misunderstanding? No, I would rather have knowledge. What do I want to
keep more than anything? Relationships with those I love. I don't need possessions. They merely have function. I don't want my body. Again, just
a function. I do want to keep memories, but it seems those are lost or taken as well.
I believe that we are born again. Baptism, in my mind, is the process of immersion into the functions of life. We are here to do two things. We
think and move, allowing us to repent of our pride and selfishness. We are also here to develop relationships with those we bring back into the
world. The body is the temple and the temple has a veil. What is that veil? It keeps us from seeing what came before. Why? Each life must be new,
free from the duplicity that would be caused by remembering what came before. What do I want to keep in life? Memories and relationships. What do I
want to gain in the afterlife? All my memories back again. They are mine. I want them back. I earned the suffering and I need to remember the sin.
Apart from knowing what came before, I have no way to guide my future. For now, it's a law and pattern we can know.
AMN in Hebrew is the word true. In English, it is AMEN.
In Greek and Latin, it is Lamb.
AMNi is River of life
AMNio is the bowl that catches the blood of the sacrificed lamb
AMNion is the sac covering the baby in the womb
AMNiotic Fluid is the water of the womb
AMNesia is the part where we are required to forget
AMNesty is when God forgets
dAMNation is when God does not forget. Further, he requires we remember. This is the lamb being taken away.
Mostly, I would like amnesty, but I would like to remember what came before. Damnation causes me to remember, but then God forgets and separates me
from HIS memory. What is the process to allow my own memories to be kept, but God's memories of my sin to be forgotten? Salvation.
Amen. The word Truth is Aleph Mem Tav. Aleph is the first letter (Alpha) and Tav is two crossed sticks and the Omega of Hebrew (Last Letter). Mem
is water. In the middle of the Alpha and Omega, we are baptized in the waters of life.
“Look, he is coming with the clouds,”
and “every eye will see him,
even those who pierced him”;
and all peoples on earth “will mourn because of him.”[c]
So shall it be! Amen.
8 “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.”
Looks like we all remember beginning to end after we exit the water. Every eye will see.
