All or nothing, or nothing at all..

I was thinking about existence. Something coming out of nothing. Carnal coming out spiritual, perhaps. To even distinguish us and them, we have to divide. But how can you divide all, or rather nothing? If God is Spirit, which is immaterial, or 'nothing', how can you take away ,divide, multiply, subtract from 'zero'- not possible (but maybe with God all things are possilbe, or as the older English translations put it, 'unimpossible')My mother has told me at times that I'm a 'all or nothing' type personality. Which got me interested in the subject of universalism and the scope of Christ's atonement, and for who(m) it was for.. if all were(are) in Adam, then were all dead..so it's all or nothing. Jesus calls those who lie, children of the devil, Satan, the father of all lies. His power or joy, is to go about deceiving, because if we are sons of God, we are already more powerful than him. But really, Satan is God's devil..I kill and I make alive, I the Lord do all these things..which is the Law. But I don't really think that the OT and NT is a division at all..because how can He who is all Grace or Peace do evil? It only appears evil to us who live in time and do not see the end of the show (shew) ..but i think 'show' is the better translation as done by the newer KJV Paragraph Bible edited by Norton, because in the end of the story, it was God all along who did all, because He is all and our life is hid with Christ in God..and once the story is understood, all the divisions, confusions disapper...like at the end of a good(ha) murder mystery. I have tried to find satisfaction in this life, so I realized that nothing satisfied me-and that Nothing, the one whom cannot be divided, multiplied, subtracted, etc.. has become Everything to me.

Sorry for my ramblings, it's all just too wonderful for me, like Psalmist said in joy or Job in misery. I enjoy reading the Eastern Fathers because of their 'fascination' with Reconcilation of all- even ol' Satan himself. All has become my favourite word in the Scripture.

Anyway, Have a good day all :)
