What every individual needs is to come to the realization that we are a part of comprehensive relationship that begins with our being a part of a humanity that has tried so many different ways to achieve some spiritual plane, from a zero level to a level that reaches the heights of the top of the tower of Babel, all having failed. Then comes the Creator to reveal His part in all of this and His plan for every life, only to be turn away from the very people He chose from all the streams of humanity, and eventually from all humanity except those who have chosen to believe in Him through His written WORD and through the influence of His Holy Spirit. I have chosen to believe Him at His WORD since I have found from my youth all other courses of trying to find out what this life is about have come to a dead end. His WORD says we are to love Almighty God through Jesus Christ. I can do nothing else except to obey. His WORD says from His first entrance into humanity He will return to complete the fulfillment of the WORD already spoken. I can do nothing else except to believe. And yes, we all should be living as if He were already here, for He has already been here, and in our broken lives we need Him for every aspect of it, or we fail. Life in these mortal bodies is frustrating at minimum with little to really be joyful about except in the glimpses of the after-life that may befall us in this life. But it is in the after-life we are promised the completion of the fulfillment of His WORD and it is that hope that we continue in our struggles until we are called to His throne, either in His glory for our belief, or in shame for not having believed. It is in that choice that the differences lies about believing Him at His WORD, or not.
