A FEW WORDS BY THE AUTHOR
When the Holy Spirit gave birth to the idea for the writing of this book, I was surprised by the immensely wide range of the subject. What happened was something similar to the effect of a flashlight. When it is turned on the light leaves the small circle of the opening and scatters to form a huge circle that illuminates a sufficiently huge space. In other words, through His revelation God allowed me to cast light on a radical spiritual question, connected with His Will for us to abide in Life, away from death. To begin with my eyes started observing the reality of existence.
“See who are the happiest, the most vigorous, the most smiling, the most energetic, the most courageous and the most optimistic!” – God told me. So I started watching…
“It is the Christians, right?” – someone may ask. Yes, of course! But the nature of my observation was different. God wanted me to see things principally and to consider the age categories. It was not hard to notice that only one age answered the criterion of God’s words – the youth…
Youth – this is the climax of the human life!
Youth – this is the zenith of our entire vitality!
Youth – this the time period, in which one is called to leave a mark!
I started contemplating. I myself am young – thirty one years old. Who was I? Who were all the other people of my generation? Undoubtedly – young people with or without direction, with or without purpose. But in all of us I saw one objective law. It is the same law, by which the tree gets rid of its ripe fruits. Youth is ripeness! Youth is the season of the ripe ones! I saw this in such way and got scared. I said to my heart:
“God, what are my eyes seeing? God, what are these fruitless trees in the season of fruits? What happened to all of them?”
Then God spoke in my heart again and said to me:
“Stefan, what you see is trees in the season of fruits that have no fertile soil for their roots. These are trees, whose roots have been killed in advance. That is why, today I am giving you Word for the young ones. Word for all those, who want to remain young forever. Word for all those, who want fruits and not just leafless branches in their life!”
This is how this book came to be in my heart. A book about the eternal youth that God offers and gives to men. My thought will be directed in two ways – the youth and the old age. In the first part of this book I will talk about the old age, and then about the youth. So that all of my readers are well informed I will explain why I have to contemplate no old age, too.
It is very simple!
One cannot remain young, if they are chased by their old days! You cannot delight in youth, if your old days have come in advance! You cannot expect ripeness, if your roots feed on deadly juices, instead of on life-giving ones!
I ask my older readers to understand from the very beginning that the contents of this book are spiritual, must be tested spiritually and in no way represent a collection of yogi prescriptions for long life. This book will speak of the old age of the human spirit, when taken away from the life-giving Spirit of God, as well as of the youth of the spiritual man as the only standard for the believer in Jesus Christ.
I hope you find here Word for spiritual rejuvenation. Word for everyone, who has felt the signs of old age.
Let God Almighty rejuvenate you! Let God’s Boon make you trees of spiritual ripeness that have their own perfect fruits!
