GOD and MAN: (THE CREATOR AND THE CREATURE.) by Senator Victor Kassim Isa Oyofo

It is difficult to find the appropriate words to convey the designation, to covey the difference between the creature man and his Creator because they are; so to say, Oceans apart. Especially when thinking of the Earthman who is ranked with the ants in this connection or purpose, that is, in defining levels. Yet, it is in defining and understanding our level that we have failed the most. We do not understand the correct relationship between us and our Creator. Even though the word Creator conveys a picture of the distance between man and the Creator; we, Earthmen persists in not wanting to understand because we rely on our intellect. It is when one steps out of the physical body and the vastness of the active firmament begins to make its impression on the Soul that a new understanding dawns. This active loom is confounding and compelling. In this state of being there is no intellect any more to beguile one. The Laws of God come in strongly to dispel any lingering doubt about who one is and one's dependence creeps in on one overwhelmingly. We are considering the good person who feared God while on Earth. We must leave all others alone because they are too varied to be discussed. But it is about the Soul in the physical body called the Earthman that I am talking about in this piece. His inability to properly define and absorb the difference between him and the Creator constitutes the burden we bear. Carefully considered, it partly lies in one's Origin as Spirit Germ exacerbated by the Fall of Man. On account of the latter, pictures conveyed to us to describe the difference were misunderstood and misconstrued. Take for example, "Let us create man after our own image." Gen. 1 : 26 KJV Bible. Without any hesitation, Earthman quickly appropriated this to himself. From here he began to define his relationship with God. He does not even understand the sentence therefore he does not know that he is not the one created After the Image. The sentence denotes Worlds and World distances which human imagination cannot conjecture. The Image of God is in the Divine Realm. There He first showed Himself. Keep in mind that this is a sentence that He pronounced at the very beginning, at the inception of Creation just as He said "Let there be Light." Those created After His Image, are the Primordial Spirits and we may include the Created Ones. The Primordial Spirits are next to the Divine figuratively but not in reality. This is because indescribable transformations had to preceed the coming into being of the Primordial Spirits as also the Created Ones. With them existence is reverence. We, Earthmen do not even come into the picture at all, at this stage. We are permitted to develop and at full development, become like those created After His Image. The lack of knowledge of Creation and about ourselves created entangling maze of confusion which is evident in everything we have done including and more importantly the worship of God. Probably, this is where we have sinned the most by personalising God in our worship. We do not maintain the appropriate distance which is due reverence or which reverence demands. It is only in reverence that compulsion to obedience issues. This is humility or humbleness. Purity which is key to receiving also issues from reverence. Purity arises for the man who obeys the Laws of God. Recently, I watched a BBC documentary about Hindus in India. They had become convinced that they are the "chosen " ones of God. They carried out drills on the use of fire arms, various defence and attack physical drills to be able to kill Christians and Moslems. They say it is in defence of their religion and ways of life! The Hindus of India are not alone in this type of hate syndrome which will surely lead to karmic burdens. Somewhere in Pakistan or Bangladesh or in Afghanistan and in many other places there are those standing on the grounds of self righteousness who are taking the lives of others in the Name of God. Some even believe that Heaven awaits them for killing others.!! Am sure there are Christian extremists who contemplate revenge in the Name of God or in the name of Jesus Christ somewhere. Common to these diverse groups is the personalising of God or Jesus. Even it goes down to personalising the Messenger of God. You hear them speak of our God. Some go so far to speak of My God. Whenever I hear this I cringe inwardly. Even though the Lord's Prayer begins with "Our Father," we are immediately reminded of the distance by the definition of His location: "Who art in Heaven." Then followed by the pledge of reverence, "hallowed be Thy Name." One pledges by this not to mention His name in vain or to misuse it. Those who say my God, debase the Name because they cannot possess Him! He is not their idol. Abd-ru-shin says , "If the Light were as men, It would have dropped Creation out of weariness..." From a purely human point of view, and from what one has gained from the knowledge of Creation; one can say, that it is truly exasperating to guide the Earthman towards the right development. Now let us examine some of the practices in Islam. Keep in mind that the Prophet Mohammed ( SAW ) peace be unto him, directed human beings to submit to the Will of God. He laid down how God must be approached beginning from the preparation for prayers. He focused on the Purity of the Soul is intending to approach in worship. He enjoined ABLUTION. ABLUTION is not meant to be just external. Yes it is good to wash externals such as hands, feet, face, mouth etc; especially when one has to be in groups but the focus is the Purity of the heart. The Light sees only the Purity of the Soul. All else is eclipsed. Ablution is inner purity. BOWING and touching the Earth with the forehead is intended to denote surrender to the Supreme God in a final act of reverence and humility. That is, one remembering that he is nothing before his Creator. The recitals are the various admissions and pledges of loyalty. The NUMBER of prayers ie the five daily prayers were intended to keep the fear and the awesomeness of God in the human mind so he can resist all evils. The spacing between the prayers are approximately three hours. This is a close marking for the human being so that everything about God will always be fresh in his mind. He was given the TESBIU or the stringed bead which contain 99 beads each representing or reminding the user of the 99 attributes of God. This was designed to keep the longing for the Kingdom of God alive and well in each spirit and to partly remove his focus from the Earth which is a temporary sojourn and from where he returns to Paradise if he qualifies. The FASTING MONTH is a period of renewal and re dedication to the Supreme God. A month of appreciation of the gifts which sustain life on Earth by practising denials; a month of inner communion and a month of sharing which culminates at a joyful avowal of the Love of God leading on to the symbolic test of faith by recalling the faith demonstrated by Abraham when he was asked to sacrifice Isaac. This is why Abraham is called the first Moslem to this day. He submitted unquestionably to the command of God. ZAKAT or giving to the needy is meant to remind man on the need for balance. The Law of Necessary Balance is hinged on Love of God and at the same time on the Justice of God. Thus it is of a higher status than giving out of pity which has been made of the noble concept. Everything which came from the Light or which was inspired by the Light through His Messengers was aimed at the upliftment of the Earthman. But Lucifer working through the intellect was always able to make man on Earth work against himself by introducing contrary ideas not in consonance with the Will of God. Thus, today, you find men holding meetings in sacred places planing evil against their fellow men in the Name of God! They kill in the Name of God. He who made the Law that "Thou shall not kill." But they kill while shouting God is great! They use the name as a rally cry to collective sin because they say "Our God". They have personalised God. They have lost all that the tenets of their religion hold. Thus like the Hindus of India where our story began who are training to kill other people of other faiths; some Moslems have decided that their ways must be God's way. Afterall is He not their God? They forget that they have asserted that there is only one God. By their actions they prove that Monotheism which is their proclaimed foundation of faith has never really been understood in its implication and meaning. There is only One God. He cannot give different messages to different people or races on Earth. Every peoples on Earth were uniformly guided. The 10 commandments given through Moses are for all mankind. Jesus the Son of God authenticated these Commandments. They were never meant for the Jews alone. The Jews only made the grounding possible for mankind. The Jews too show a peculiar personalising of God and remain stuck in a distant Time Capsule while the World to which they were used to bring Spiritual Enlightenment moved on. When I watch them at the Wailing Wall, a certain cold shiver runs through my spine. How did they lose it? History provides enough records of wars and conflicts arising from men personalising God in their religious concepts. Christianity fought against Christianity as in Roman Catholics fighting against Protestants and they against the Puritans or against the Quakers. Every one fighting the other. There were of course, the Crusades where Christian armies with their Knights fought Moslem armies; each side justified its barbarity with the name of God. It is recorded that in a particularly vicious battle at Acres in the desert of Palestine a Knight of the Crusades while piercing hapless women he already buried to their waists in the hot sands, would exclaim as he raised his lance at full charge of his Arabian horse "I am the right hand of God!" This was the height of evil possession in the name of religion masquerading as a servant of God. Who will know how many painful reincarnations he thereby brought upon himself? God does not need anyone to fight for Him. This is clearly stated: " Vengeance is mine and I will repay." As a matter of fact we are not to revenge for ourselves. Even here on Earth we are not to take the laws into our own hands! So we are taught in the Justice System. The relics and monuments left behind by conflicts arising from men personalising God are all over the Earth. Today, all kinds of brutalities committed against others, are carried out by men who shout their belief in God. Wealthy Arabs are enslaving black peoples while pruning their thick black beards. With heads in festooned headgears, they are confident that God is on their side! These Arabs cannot imagine the great harms they have done to themselves and are doing. The fate is not different for those who practise racial discrimination of any type. Whether it is against blacks, Maoris or Aborigines of Australia, the Red Indians of Americas, or the Pygmies of the Congo and many another; the Laws of God will exert their revenge. The Supreme Law of God is Love thy neighbour as thyself. It cannot be negotiated. Every other person is a neighbour period. With all these confusions and conflicts arising from God's uniform guidance to the Earthman we can see why the Grace of God inclined to mankind and allowed the Holy Message from the Grail to be brought to mankind by Abd-ru-shin. It corrects all previous misconceptions which led to conflicts. With It came also the Judgment and the banning of Lucifer to the Bottomless pit. This permits those who passed through the Judgment a uniform growth under the splendour of the Goodness of God. We are given the full knowledge of Creation so we can navigate Creation successfully. There will be one uniform mode of worship in the Will of God. Then Worship of God will be Reverence. There will be no religions but one uniform swinging in the Will of God. Glory be to God. Amen Senator Victor Kassim Isa Oyofo 06/06/16. The month of Ramadan 2016.
