О About the Law of God, miracles… and demoniac laughter
About the Law of God
Do you know the key difference between God and devil? God makes the Law. The Law of relations between everything in Universe. Any two substances randomly taken from Universe are connected (or released), i.e. interact under the Law. The Law is solid, because even God observes it. You may wonder why He needs to observe the Law made by Him. He is God! And He may do whatever He wants… Then why? There are three reasons.
Reason one. God is not a Deputy of State Duma writing Laws for ordinary people, but not observing them.They prefer to feel free and do what they want. One can hardly notice the image of God in such behavior.
Reason two. If it is uncomfortable to observe some law, why make it? Let’s take Deputies again. They make silly laws to get advantage over those who would observe them. This scheme is not applicable to God again. God is almighty and has no need to prove it.
Reason three. An artist draws a rectangle… If he does not apply the law of golden section, he will draw something ugly. A beautiful well-proportional world may be built only on the basis of a solid Law. It is also kind of Law. Maybe even initial Law, with which it all started.
Let’s sum up. God gives people a well-proportional beautiful world based on the Law. The Law is a sequence, predictability, confidence in the future. The law may not be deceitful. If there is Law, it is always the truth. The Law is everywhere. In soulless nature, in the relations between God and the human being. Commandments. And Moses’s Tablets. And Christ’s Sermon on the Mount about love. The law is logical. It means it is a kind of language. I mean God talks to people through the law. Communicates with them. We just need to understand it. It is God’s greatest gift to people – fire of reasoning power. Unfortunately one day ancient Satan’s intrigues blew it out for a moment…
Different idiots mock at God saying: «Show me a miracle, and I will believe!». These people commit two crimes at the same time.
First. Do you imagine God’s torture? He must break this system softly pulsating in its perfect beauty, insert a steel bar stinking with motor oil between two fragrant turquoise petals, in order to stop it all for a second and please this narrow-souled unbeliever. What about sunrise and dawn. Aren’t they miracles? It is a miracle, but based of the Law of God! Harmony! Without hammers of earthly trivial miracles. What about thunderstorm over the sea in the middle of the day? That’s Revelation! That’s where God is! In the common beautiful harmony of Law! When Devil comes, he will show you miracles – you won’t find them funny. That is why I hate miracles. Even crying icons are alien to me. Who knows what abyss is weeping there…
Someone may say: “What if a miracle is a hidden element of the law?”. I answer: “Then it is not a miracle!”. So we shouldn’t ask God for miracles, but we should say: “God, show me the unknown consistency!”. I mean we’d better be the Newtons, but not hysterical idiots. And again we see that the appeal is made to the logic and mind. But what about the thirsty for miracles? They do not want logic and mind vice versa, they like to be knocked out. With an endorphin and adrenaline wave… They call it «altered consciousness». They will always find the way out, if they get tired of waiting for a miracle – they will eat mushrooms or smoke marijuana…
Second. «Show me a miracle (they mean evidence of God existence), and I will believe…». One request contains two mutually exclusive messages. What Faith are they talking about, if there is evidence? Faith does not require evidence. It’s just FAITH.
Miracles weaken Faith. Not just weaken. No! They kill it! They make it mere knowledge. «If you raise somebody from the dead, I will believe». Lie! From the first to the last word. If you give an answer, I will solve the task and will call myself a mathematician. Bullshit! Evidence gives rise to knowledge. But knowledge is not faith. Knowledge is quite the opposite. It is its death.
Miracles tempt. They attract. Foolish people say that it is dull to live without miracles. Yes! Like without drugs. The world is grey without them. The world is empty. «I was searching for a miracle. In the needle inserted along the vein, along the pain, from inside… For a day, for an hour… I found a miracle. I could jump up without landing. I could drum my finger on rainy glass in front of silly people’s noses and bathe in the silver creek of own laughter… I got rid of it. I got through it…». But what about them? They melt before the crying icon. But when it stops crying, they shoot out lips and stamp their feet like offended children. They are deprived of bliss of sacrament. Withdrawal syndrome… Great!
I acknowledge the only miracle. And it is the only miracle in our world. It is Repentance. It is the only miracle and the only way of communication between the human being and God. Neither meditation, nor mystical wave of hands and crazy shaking. ONLY REPENTANCE! What about prayer? Yes, and prayer too. BUT WITH REPENTANCE!!! Only such prayer is really addressed to GOD. It’s no coincidence that orthodox Christians consider Repentance as Sacrament. One of the seven! And this sacrament is complicated. I would say it is the most complicated sacrament. Even more complicated than the Sacrament of the Eucharist. It is not a patch on miracles! Any prediction or mystery is nonsense! If compared with Repentance! And do not think it is just “Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, Be Merciful”! Technique of this phrase pronunciation comprises advanced maths! Not everybody can clear it out even after million years of learning. Not in vein hermits called it a tacit prayer!
About demoniac laughter
Devil is subjective and unpredictable like a pregnant woman.
Example: an extrasensory perception expert (or how do they call them?), his bloodshot eyes wide open, sits in the kitchen alone and moves a box on the table without touching it with his sweaty hands. Foolish people applaud when listen to his stories. And they dream to learn to do the same. They wait for public manifestation of the gift. In public the poor expert opens his eyes even wider, but the box does not move. Nothing happens. People laugh. The poor man hangs himself. Demons are bursting with laughter. Because it is not talent or gift – just Satan’s intrigues. To mock at idiots.
As for God, everything is quite different The apple still falls from the tree according to the law of gravitation. Newton noticed it, described and was awarded. Everything according to the Law of God, everything is steady. But it is GOD! While demon will cheat you. Everything is lawless. Remember the Deputies.
Or another example. «Prophets»-foretellers with half-decayed brain (they have a characteristic mark on their faces) speak something about future through their noses. But what do they say? When and where somebody will die or something will crash down… I beg your pardon, but even cats know it. Animals always go to a safe place before some accident. So four-footed prophets are awesomer. While foretellers are just… Cat-like foretellers. God, let them predict when and where somebody will come into world or will do something good. Build a school, for example. Or a road. Or a house for lonely old people. Then I would respect them. No way… Satan whispers to them: “You predict, and I will do it later”. What can Satan do? Only break something. Or drop something. Only God creates. One day those foolish people considering themselves foretellers will be cheated by Satan for sure. Satan has done everything for it and will mock at them so that… I don’t envy them.
CONCLUSION: everything like Law, consistence, mind and logic is from God. Everything unpredictable and fey is from Satan.
