Have you ever contemplated whether God can be separated from Himself?
Really do you believe that would be possible? I will take that question and say with a resounding NO! He can’t be separated from himself. Why is that so important? That is what we will explore in this post. First, what do we know about God? We know the 3 big O’s. He is omniscient meaning all knowing. He is omnipotent meaning all powerful. He is omnipresent meaning present everywhere at the same time regardless of time or space. And it is that 3rd O, omnipresent that I base my answer of no God can’t be separated from Himself. He is present always and everywhere so how could He ever be separated from Himself? He cannot! However He can be fragmented.
Can God be fragmented?
Yes, He can. But what do I mean God fragmented? Separated parts but not separated. We are one with God and Christ. You are one with God and I am one with God. You and I are separate but we are also connected together through Him to the point of us being one also. The ancient script says, “Greater is He who is in you that he who is in the world.” He truly is “in you”. Not just in part but He in His fullness is in you. His fullness being the 3 O’s. Or in other places, the ancient script says, “To them, God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.” And in other places, “ My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, 21 that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. 22 I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— 23 I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.” The original Greek word used in this scripture is “Heis” and pronounced like “hice”. Which if you look at the spelling which is pretty cool is He is. And guess what? He is that, He is. Taken from when He said of Himself, “I am that, I am. He is you and He is me. You and I are one with Father God, not two or three. One! But we should ask, what does one or oneness mean? Singular not plural, one.
Are we God?
Yes and no. Here are some ancient scripts to contemplate. “I said, ‘You are “gods”; you are all sons of the Most High.” Or this one, “Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your Law, ‘I have said you are “gods”’? We are gods, but we are not God, for He is far greater than us. However, God is 100% us. We are part of God in the flesh. Even to the point like Christ said: “If you have seen me you have seen the Father.” You and I can truly say the exact same thing as Christ. If someone has seen you or if someone has seen me they have seen the Father! Remember one with Him not two or three with Him, one.
The part has the same properties as the whole…
You being an eternal spirit are part of God in the flesh. But the part of God has the same exact properties as the whole of God. For example, if you took a bucket of ocean water and examined its properties the small bucket of water would have the exact same properties as the whole ocean. Meaning the part is the same as the whole. Or if I baked an apple pie and I gave you a slice of pie and I asked, how does it taste? You would respond by saying it tastes like an apple pie. But I would say how does it taste like an apple pie when it is only a piece of apple pie? In the same manner, the piece of apple pie has the same properties as the whole apple pie. Therefore you are created like Him and in His image. You have been given all dominion and power. You are a creative being, so create!
But why do I feel separate?
Take a look at this ancient script for the clue why. “So I tell you this, and insist on it in the Lord, that you must no longer live as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their thinking. 18 They are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardening of their hearts.” You may be living as the Gentiles! In the futility (useless) of your thinking and darkened in your understanding and separated from God by your ignorance. You may just not know you are not separated from God. However now you know you are not separated from Him. And cannot be separated from Him. For you are one with Him and He can not be separated from Himself. You now have understanding and are no longer ignorant of this fact. You are one with Him. At the sub-atomic level, you are mostly space. But I have great news! God is omnipresent, not only is He in the part but He is also in the space in between the parts. So His presence consumes every part and space of you!
Be your authentic true self because you are part of Him. Be yourself and not act like someone else. Be the best version of you, you can be. Become what you desire to be. You have all dominion and power so go create the life you desire and are worthy of! Remember who you are. You are love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things, there is no law. This ancient scripts should have a lot more meaning now. “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”
