“IN THE BEGINNING GOD, CREATED THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH”
This is the very first statement in the Autobiography of GOD called the Bible.
In the Book of Beginnings called Genesis, Almighty GOD stated in the opening sentence of HIS message to mankind that “In the Beginning GOD created the heavens and the earth”. Mankind after thousands of years became aware of his surroundings and then developed their own process called Science.
This process enabled mankind to explore the land, sea and atmosphere above him. And ultimately Outer Space. Mankind has achieved great things as a specie. Yet our downfall as a specie or a Kind as GOD describes us, is in another realm called INNER space.
Science can tell us what we are by breaking us down into matter. But to know WHO we are, means to answer questions we cannot answer for ourselves because the answers must come from outside of us. In reality the TRUE answer’s come from the Holy Spirit who takes up residence in us when we accept Jesus as our Savior and Lord.
Who am I ? How did I get here? What am I doing here? Where do I go after I die? These are the Questions that keep us up at night.
In Genesis 1:31 we have GOD’s statement of FACT that the Earth, everything on the earth, the atmosphere surrounding the earth and the Universe that surrounds the earth were made by GOD ALONE.
GOD ALONE is Perfection. ” Then God saw everything that HE had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day.”
Yes In the Beginning, GOD CREATED the Heavens and the Earth and us in 6 days. And He said everything was very good including mankind UNTIL Adam and Eve believed the LIE.
If you cannot accept the TRUTH stated in the opening 10 words of the Bible, which is GOD’s word to us then you have a HUGE problem in understanding the rest of Scripture. You were born and only equipped to accept The LIE. Only the TRUTH guarantees you Eternal Life. The LIE will guarantee you Eternal Death.
“I will make myself like the Most High.” That statement came out of the mouth of satan, the god of this world back in eternity past…Isaiah 14:14. How do you think he spoke those words of betrayal? Was it spoken quietly in hushed tones in the surrounding shadows? Or was it spoken with excitement of one who is confident in his prideful boasting that this was now a foregone conclusion?
I think it was spoken with malice and forethought in arrogance and pride. It was the statement that reverberated throughout Heaven. It was the statement that banded together a group of rogue angels who rallied around Lucifer the Deceiver, the Archangel who had gone astray.
Lucifer the worship director of Heaven had now been given enough lead on his leash by God so he could create a rebellion against the very God who created him along with the fallen angels who would now blindly follow their Deceiver into the darkness, away from the light.
Together they were allowed by God to wreak havoc first in heaven and then on the earth among a second race of beings that God would create…the race of mankind.
War erupted in heaven and then war covered the face of the earth. The battle was spiritual but its casualties were counted in untold billions of people made of flesh. The battle lines were clear because they were drawn as a line in the sand between two opposing forces.
The opposing statements between Good and Evil, drew the line in the Judean sand. These are the words of satan (a creature made by God)… ”I will make myself like the most high”.
These are the Words of the Living God as recorded in the book of Isaiah 45:22…
“Turn to Me and be saved, all the ends of the earth; For I am God, and there is no other.”
There are also two sides to the Greatest Story Ever Told. One is a fairy tale woven by Lucifer / Satan, that is veiled in deception and has been swallowed completely by the fallen angels along with fallen mankind.
This lie is like a bedtime story told to a child; filled with adventure made up of fairy tales, legends and myths. A clever story with bits and pieces of Biblical truth wrapped up in lies so it can be believed. Yet this story is told at night in the darkness so your senses are dulled as you are rocked to sleep by this lullaby of deception as the words “I will make myself like the most high” penetrate your heart and your soul until you believe it in your mind.
God Himself tells the other side to this story in the Old & New Testaments . It is a story of His Truth. HE tells it like it is. It is a story filled with prophecy about someone coming to save you from certain death. That Someone is Jesus who would die in your place, so that you would have eternal life rather than eternal death.
The story is unlike any other story you have ever heard. For this story was pre-written in eternity past and now is coming to life daily before your eyes. It is a story of actual events in history played out through time…and you have a role to play in it. No its not set in stone, your choices in life will dictate your story as it unfolds on the pages of your individual book of Life.
This Greatest Story Ever Told, the story of the Triune God, begins in the deepest blackness of night, but ends with the Statement that would bring forth the Dawn of Eternal Light and a new race of spiritual beings and later a new creation of the heavens and a new cleansed and purified Earth. That statement “IT IS FINISHED ! ! !” roared forth from the mouth of JESUS on HIS CROSS. Jesus the ONE BORN to be THE CRUCIFIED, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, The Messiah of Israel and the Christ of HIS Church.
Jesus is coming back to fill Heaven with the Redeemed and Hell with the Damned, and to bring an end to Anti-Semitism Forever. Israel is God’s prophetic time clock. Time is about to end.
Matthew 10:28 “And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”
