John 1.1-18 – Live inside the omnipotent bear hug, you will.

ImageFrom behind and above and before all things was The Force, surrounding us and binding us.  The Force was with Papa, and The Force was God together with Papa and Sarayu (2) from the very beginning. (3) Everything that exists, came into being because The Force called it forth. (4) The Force is the beginning of aliveness, the Life that is the key that unlocks all knowledge. (5)  The  Force has invaded the Dark Side, and the Dark Side has lost.

(6) Papa sent a man named John (7) to tell everybody about the Force. (8) [And for the sake of those confused people out there, John himself was not the Force. Duh].

(9) The True Force, the One who illuminates everything, was entering into the world. (10) He is the origin and destiny of the universe, but the universe didn’t notice him. (11) All belong to him, but not all welcomed him.

(12) But some did welcome and learn from him. They received his true vision of reality and his ability to function in life as Papa’s beloved child—(13) because that is exactly what you are, not by human decision but because Papa has decided it for you.

(14) So REALLY—The Force really did become a guy who hung out with us.  We have looked The Force in the eye, and nothing of him is now hidden from us, because we have him, Papa’s Boy, the One source and destiny of all life and all knowledge.

(15) He is the one John meant when he so clearly and non-confusingly said:

He goes beyond me because he was before me, even though he will come after me.

(16) Yes, Papa has already given us a lot. But now, in giving us the One, Papa has given us EVERYTHING. (17) Through Moses, Papa gave us Torah. Through Jesus, Papa has given us Life and Light.

(18) The only One who really knows Papa is her one and only Son, the One who lives forever inside her omnipotent bear hug.  This One is taking his life of knowing-and-living-forever-with-Papa, and he is giving it to us.

    Was the obvious reference to Star Wars’ use of ‘The Force’ and ‘The Dark Side’ on purpose or accidental? I am serious…
