Beyond Adam I

Genesis 1-2, Tyndale Living Bible. **. When God began creating the heavens and the earth, the earth was at first a shapeless, chaotic mass, with the Spirit of God brooding over the dark vapors.

In the Middle Ages, Hugo St. Victor (1097-1141) wrote about the first 2 verses of the bible saying, “How long did the world remain in this disorder before the regular re-ordering…….(The six days by His Word to establish His work and a seventh day of rest (Genesis 2.1). Other medieval scholars, such as Pererius and Peavius, also considered there was a time lapse between verses one and two in Genesis.

Since the Spirit of God was brooding (moving, hovering, pondering) over the chaos and dark vapors, something apparently happened to cause the earth to be in such a chaotic mess. The answer is quite simple, Satan and his demons as they rapidly deployed their sinful and destructive nature which was later passed to man to create another chaotic mess of the earth. Since the timetable of God is unlike the timetable of man (a thousand years is like one day) even millions of years of disorder may have taken place before our God decided to begin re-ordering the earth in Genesis, verse three.

The Messiah Christ Jesus tells us there was war in heaven (Revelation 12:7-9 – NKJV), but the devil (Satan, great dragon, Lucifer) and his angels lost the battle and thrown out of heaven ** verse 9 ** So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world,  he was cast to the earth, and the angels were cast out with him.** In their rage of defeat and imprisonment on earth, the wicked ones are the likely cause of the earth becoming a shapeless, chaotic mass of disorder and destruction. Eons later the Spirit of God hovered and pondered over what to do. His decision to make all things new in six days, giving man the seventh day to rest from his labors gave great pleasure to our Heavenly Father and Creator. Each day of labor and just as man, who is the image of God receives pleasure from accomplishment, God said, “it is good!”  (Genesis, 7 times in Chapter one, including verse 31 when He saw all that he made and said, “Indeed, it was very good”. And the evening and morning was the sixth day.

Job 38:4-10 **. (God answered Job in a whirlwind). “Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell ME, if you have understanding. Who determined its measurements? Surely you know! Or who stretched the line upon it? To what were its foundations fastened? Or who laid its cornerstone, when the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God (angels) shouted for joy?  Or who shut in the sea with doors, when it burst forth and issued from the womb; when I made the cloud its garment, and thick darkness its swaddling band (blanket). When I fixed my limit for it, and set bars and doors;” ** In Ezekiel, God calls Satan the King of Tyre. Ezekiel 28:11-15… “Thus says the Lord God; you were the seal of perfection full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. You were in Eden, the Garden of God. Every precious stone was your covering; the sardius, topaz, and diamond, beryl, onyx, and jasper, sapphire, turquoise, and emerald with gold, the workmanship you your timbrels (drums & tambourines) and pipes was prepared for you on the day you were created. You were the anointed cherub who covers (Exodus 25:18, two cherubs of gold cover the earthly Ark of the Covenant, one at each end of the mercy seat). I established you: You walked back and forth in the mist of fiery stones. You were perfect in you ways until iniquity (sin, disobedience) was found in you. ** Hebrews 11:3, **. By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.

Gravity is not visible but our God has made this invisible force which in theory is manifested by acceleration toward each other of two free material particles or bodies or of radiant energy quanta. In plain English that means that everything that goes up must come down. However, gravity is not theory; it was designed perfectly for a purpose by our super intelligent creator. Astronomers know the earth was perfectly made for a purpose which will sustain life. The true purpose was life eternally for those that love our Lord by being obedient in keeping His commandments.  Our Lord positioned the earth perfectly! A distance of 2 percent nearer or further from the sun would result in all life giving water being evaporated or frozen. The theory of Darwin tried to prove that God was not creator of the heavens and earth. Evolution by the theory of Darwin has crumbled with discovery of DNA. Our wonderful creator has designed a magnificently precise method of tracking his earthly children beginning with Adam. According to molecular biologist Michael Denton, a teaspoon of DNA could contain enough information to build the proteins for all species that ever lived on earth with enough information left over to record every book ever written.  The immense extraordinary means of assembling diverse elements with DNA has changed former Atheist Richard Ostling; who now believes in God as documented by the Associated Press report, December 9, 2004.

As technology progresses, the evidence continues to mount against unbelievers. Pitiful theories instigated by Satan become more rampant in deceiving man to deny the existence of our Creator. The law of Adolf Hitler took precedence over the Ten Commandments, the higher law of our Creator. His posted words of rejection of God still reverberate at Auschwitz which state, “I freed Germany from the stupid and degrading fallacies of conscience and morality…. We will train young people before whom the world will tremble. I want young people capable of violence, imperious (arrogant, domineering), relentless and cruel. Adolf Hitler wrote these satanic words more than 60 years ago. Yet, Satan, the adversary of God, has risen to new dimensions with people that have become more violent, arrogant, domineering relentless and cruel with wholesale killings extending far beyond the jealously, hate and greed of Cain.

Unless the Messiah Christ Jesus returns quickly, as promised, to rescue the faithful who keep God’s commandments, no flesh will remain. However, as many as believe and receive Christ Jesus, Heir and son of God, He will give the right to become children of God forever! Repent now, be baptized as death to sin and raised alive, keep the faith and live forever!
