The Border is a defined as a common boundary, the place where two things touch each other. The point of connection between two things.
We read of an incredible account in Genesis chapter 28. Jacob had a dream and in that dream, he saw a ladder which reached from earth to heaven, the angels going up and coming down and God spoke to him from the top. He awoke from his sleep and said "... how awesome is this place, this is none other than the house of God, this is the gate of heaven". This is the Border!!!
The Border is where:
The things of God touch the human heart
The activity of God touches human understanding
The power of God's wisdom touches the weakness of man's reason and man's mind hears the voice of God
Eternity (eternal reality) touches Time (temporal reality)
The place where we learn to see correctly
Where Life Occurs:
Genesis 2:7 "And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being". (NKJV)
Life occurs at the point at which man touches God
- Material touches immaterial
- Rational human thought interfaces with divine wisdom
- Reason interfaces with discernment
