Jesus question was not do you believe in me, but do you believe what God has promised, well, time's up!

"From the Beginning has been the Promise that All shall be Well, and All shall be well, and that All Manner of Thing shall be well." This is my translation of John 1:1. Apparently, even in the Anglo-Saxon translations of John, Worde was used here in John to mean theologically "promise." Thus, when we get to the line "And the Word was made flesh [and blood], it could easily be read [out-loud] And the Promise of God was made visible in flesh and blood..." like, here is what I have always promised, what it looks like in [human] flesh and blood. The life giving question is Do you believe God's Promise that All Shall Be Well ?

If I say yes, I believe, then there is nothing that can separate us from the Love of God, from that Promise being kept. In Jesus, we see that: he died, dead, three days dead. It is in that Jesus that we may choose or not choose to see the very here, now, present-eternally, all at once manifestitation of the glory of all that is, and all that is can be seen "finally," in that Jesus, and we awaken into a new creation, the old has passed away, or better yet. passed-over into the very Glory of God in Himself.

The only two possible alternatives are that all life and existence is pure Fortuna or "Chance," or that all things end in futility-- "not with a bang, but a whimper," and all including good, bad, love, hate, joy, wonder, is indeed nothing but vanity, no thing.
