The Incredible Mr. Cubit
My blog barely began 1 month ago. Although still a novice, slowly I’m learning. The best bloggers in the business have given me some awesome advice. Host a guest author on your a post. Since their advice so nicely rhymed, I decided to take it the very next time.
Introducing my first guest author–The incredible Mr. Cubit. A man I became acquainted with merely 2 years ago. He has his faults. His logic is flawed. His perception & understanding mediocre. His grammar and composition sub-par. But…he has fascinating, novel, and unique ideas. Concepts that I have never encountered anywhere else.
He has been highly influential on my writing style. Except for his grim grammar & lousy logic, it’s often hard to tell his writing from mine. It was his prodding that finally pushed me to start blogging. In fact, the very title of my blog was his brainchild. Enter Mr. Cubit . . .
Greetings from Cubit Land!!
Through a quirk of fate, my new friend, Sam, & I are very, very close in age. We have known each other for only a short time. In fact, exactly several months shy of 2 years and several months. I don’t have as much influence over him as he leads you to believe. For example, I tried to convince him not to describe my writing skills as sub-par. Although true, why tell anybody embarrassing truths. But, whatcha gonna do. Now you know. I write miserably about my masterful musings. By the way, it was I, who schooled Sam on the allure of alliteration.
Heaven Prep 101: Lesson #1.
In the humblest of my humble opinions, I fully believe that ALL my friends are going to heaven. And Sam’s friends, too. Which, of course, means all of you. You were heaven sent and you are heaven bent.
If you’ve done any foreign travel, you know it’s always wise to prepare. Especially, in the lingua franca of your destination. Soon, we will all journey to that country from which there is no return…..heaven. So, here’s lesson #1 in Heaven Prep: 101– A crash course in the spoken tongue of that celestial sovereignty.
Like Sam, I’m Mormon. As far as I know, we are the only religion in the world who possesses a portion of the heavenly language. It’s not much. Just one complete sentence and one word. Under penalty of death, I cannot tell you the sentence.
But, that one word, I can, and will, reveal. One hundred and eighty-one years ago, Deity deigned to dispense this single, singular, sententious, celestial word to the world. It’s the one and only true word from the heavenly language that to earthlings is known. Wow. How important must this extraordinary small set of letters be? The ONLY utopian utterance we have.
It is found in the most profound of our renowned holy writ.
In the Pearl of Great Price, in the Book of Abraham, in Facsimile #2, Explanation #1 it’s clearly declared: “The measurement according to celestial time, which celestial time signifies ONE DAY TO A CUBIT.”
Just let the profundity of this sentence distill upon your soul like the dew of heaven. ONE DAY TO A CUBIT. That knowledge alone changes lives. Gives purpose. Restores hope.
One day to a cubit.
One day = a cubit.
Day = Cubit.
Today = Tocubit.
The historical preservation of this Kolobian word is also stunning. The Book of Abraham was written by Abraham himself over 2,000 years ago. Hidden in Egyptian hieroglyphics, in an Egyptian papyrus, in an Egyptian mummy in the Egyptian sand. Awaiting, the prophetic calling of the first successful Egyptian translator . . . Joseph Smith.
My friendly friends of Sam, you are now one heavenly WORD closer to fitting-in in heaven. Remember, Oh Remember, Day = Cubit.
Heaven Prep 101: Lesson #2.
You and me, and probably Sam, are destined to become heavenly residents. It might come in handy if we know who the Head Man is. Well, of course, we know who He is. But will we recognize Him? What the heck does He look like? How the heck am I going to catch on to His countenance? I have never seen Him. You’ve never seen him. Even Sam hasn’t seen him. What the heck! Nobody I know has seen him. OK. I just realized I’m talking about heaven and keep using heck. Makes me sound like a redneck, so I’ll put it in check.
God’s appearance? I forthwith share with you my favorite description. It fits perfectly with your, mine and Sam’s life experience. The source is the amazing Apostle Paul of New Testamental fame.
Paul gave his instructive & insightful description of God’s appearance on at least 3 occasions. Let’s put that in perspective. We know that drinking tea prevents us from going to the highest of heavens. Yet, that factoid is only alluded to once in our canon. How about ‘Day = Cubit.’ It, also, is only mentioned in one clear and forthright scripture. And, now, we all know how important that concept is. But, Paul delivers God’s physical description in 3, count ’em, 3 unequivocally biblical verses. This must be important stuff.
Speaking of the almighty, in Colossians 1:15, Paul pronounces Him “The invisible God.”
The Invisible God. That explains everything. Thank…you…Paul! No wonder none of us has ever seen Him. He’s invisible. I love the scriptures!!!
Incidentally, there was only one letter written to the Colossians. It is surmised that they really didn’t like the idea of an invisible god. So, Paul paused his penpalship with Colossian peoples. For your edification, here are the two other references regarding invisibility: 1 Tim 1:17; Hebrews 11:27
Back to the whole point of lesson #2. How to recognize deity? Paul has clearly clued us in. If we see Him, it’s not Him. HE’S INVISIBLE. That’s it.
At this point, you are SUPER prepared to enter heaven.
Titling a Blog
Initially, Sam balked at my suggestion. After all, nobody, except the most studious of scripture scholars, would have a twinkling of an inkling of it’s intent. But, now you know, don’t you.
Tocubit is Invisible’s Cubit = Today is God’s Day.
May we go and make it His.
With Abounding Affection, Mr. Cubit
