"In The Beginning"
by D. J. Love, Minister, TSN, SBC
The entire purpose for this message is to show that some aspects of science and religion do not necessarily disagree.
The following message is based on Spiritually Revealed Truth and should not be confused with Scripture. However, Scripture will be used to substantiate much of this message.
This message is only meant to be "Spiritual Food For Thought."
12 How you are fallen from heaven, day-star (Lucifer), son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, who laid the nations low!
13 You (Satan) said in your heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of Yahweh; and I will sit on the mountain of congregation, in the uttermost parts of the north;
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High (but only in power and authority, not Like Him in Righteousness).
9 The great dragon was thrown down, the old serpent, it that is called the Devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world. It was thrown down to the earth, and its angels (demons) were thrown down with it.
13 When the dragon (Satan or Lucifer, Rev. 20:2) saw that it was thrown down (from Heaven) to the Earth, it (ultimately) persecuted the woman (the seed of Abraham or the nation of Israel/Jacob, Rev. 12:1) who gave birth to the male child (Messiah or Satan's replacement).
Note: The physical and Spiritual (Faithful and Righteous) lineage of Messiah Yahshua began with Adam & Eve, and ended with Joseph & Miryam (Mary). But the Nation of Israel (Jacob) and specifically the tribe of Judah is "The Woman" as this prophecy is one of national importance.
Obviously Mary was never persecuted, and her memory is now one of idolatry by the Christo-pagan churches of this world. See the pagan photos.
It should be obvious that Satan (source of human nature) was and is, as represented or existing in natural man, is far from total stupidity. It has a mindset (human nature) that is far more experienced than that of any single man and it has had millions of years to perfect its perverted logic and unrighteous propaganda, but the energy of its intellect has been focused on "Self." One might say that Satan must be stupid to rebel against Yahweh, but this is actually a lack of wisdom and understanding. Wisdom is knowing how to use ones intellect, and Satan (source of human nature) is too "Self" absorbed to be truly wise. However, it would be very unwise for anyone to think that he or she is too clever to be deceived by Satan (source of human nature). Do not try to match wits with Satan (source of human nature) without Yahweh's Holy Spirit to guide you. Anyway, the point is, Satan did not say (allegorically speaking) that it would make itself "The Most High." It (human nature or mankind) said "like the Most High." (See "Doctrine.") Satan (human nature or mankind) wasn't so stupid as to believe that it could actually be "The Most High," but when it was known as "Lucifer" (Angel or Messenger of Righteousness) it did believe or even thought it deserved to be the "Most Trusted" or "Highest Ranked" in the Kingdom under Yahweh. And it was for awhile, but vanity set in, and it fell from Yahweh's "Grace" (favor). Lucifer or Satan (source of human nature) was actually expecting Yahweh to continue to keep it in the manner to which it had grown accustomed, and when it was overlooked for another (Yahshua, as yet unborn or created), its vanity caused it (human nature or mankind) to sin against Yahweh and Yahweh's "Plan of Salvation." Lucifer (messenger of deceptive righteousness) had grown so halty in its position as Yahweh's number one Angel (messenger) that it was completely unable to humble itself when it discovered that Yahweh had a "Plan" for human beings that did not include it. A "Plan" that would ultimately make Messiah Yahshua and "The Chosen Few" of mankind of higher importance than any angel. I am convinced that this same vanity is why one-third of the angels chose to follow a false leader (a type of false messiah), and this is just exactly what mankind has been doing for thousands of years.
A Must Read: Hebrews 1:All (a corrected version)
Job 28:28 (see Proverbs 4:7, Proverbs 9:10 and Psalms 111:10)
28 To man he said, "Behold, the fear of the LORD, 'that' is wisdom. To depart from evil is understanding."
13 Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show his deeds done in gentleness of wisdom by his good life.
14 But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your heart, don't boast and don't lie against the truth.
15 This (false) wisdom is not that which comes down from above, but is earthly, sensual, and demonic.
16 For where jealousy and selfish ambition are, there is confusion and every evil deed.
17 But the (true) wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceful, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.
18 Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.
Now let us consider what physical evidence there is that has been discovered from the original creation of the universe and Earth until now. Physical evidence suggests that animals, man like creatures, and early man killed in order to survive, just as they do now. In other words, prior to the flood there was a previous world and prior to that world there was another world in which "Survival of the Physically Fittest" was the "Law of the Land." Since the dinosaurs, and since the flood of Noah's days "Survival of the Fittest" has been the "Law of the Land." And yet Yahweh, and His "Proxy" Magistrate, "Messiah Yahshua", never taught "Survival of the Physically Fittest." The "Instinctive Will to Survive" is human nature and Satan's Nature. It is the greatest form of "Self" (sin) and is, also, known as "Self Preservation." We, also, know that Satan (HUMAN NATURE) is and has been the (allegorical) "Prince of this World," and as such is the spirit of discord among the physically living, and the fallen angels.
However, Yahweh and Yahshua have always taught survival of the Spiritually Righteous (YAHWEH's NATURE) even if physical death was a necessary part of that lesson.
Matthew 5: 38-44 (Does this sound like survival of the physically fittest OR Spiritually fittest?)
38 You have heard that it was said, 'An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.'
39 But I tell you, don't resist him who is evil; but whoever strikes you on your right cheek, turn to him the other also.
40 If any man would go to law with you and take away your coat, let him have your cloak also.
41 Whoever compels you to go one mile, go with him two.
42 Give to him who asks you, and don't turn away him who desires to borrow from you.
43 "You have heard that it was said, 'You shall love your neighbor, and hate your enemy.'
44 But I tell you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you,
Yahweh created an inhabitable ("Kuwn" or orderly") and perfect (not vain or "tohuw") universe and Earth from emptiness ("Bohuw"), and then it became ("Hayah") void, formless, and chaotic, because of The Nature of Unrighteousness (human nature). One might ask, "Why would Yahweh allow this?" Because it is for righteousness sake that Yahweh allows us all (angels and man) to expose our true nature. For this reason we were all created free agents!
1 In the beginning G-d created the heavens and the Earth (from "Bohuw" or nothing, and the creation was "kuwn" or orderly).
2 The Earth was or became ("Hayah") without form, and void ("Tohuw" or uninhabitable); and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit (Strong's #7308 & #7307 "Ruwach" or "Mind of Yahweh") of G-d was hovering (Strong's #7363 "Rachaph," "to brood." The implication being to "meditate over" or "hover with protective wings in order to recreate or create") over the face of the waters.
Note: The 2nd word "was" (above) after "G-d", had no original Hebrew and was added for clarity.
18 For thus says the L-RD Yahweh, Who created the heavens, Who is G-d, Who formed the earth and made it, Who has established it, Who did not create it in vain ("Tohuw"), Who formed it to be inhabited ("Kuwn" or orderly): "I am the LORD Yahweh, and there is no other (Again Yahweh states that He is One, and not a trinity).
So here we can plainly see that G-d created the heavens and The Earth, not formless and in chaos, but set them up with stability, structure and in order. We can now be so bold at this point to say that G-d created the heavens and the Earth in "perfection", as he created the first (morally aware) humans we have come to know as Adam and Eve. Here it seems necessary to point out that throughout the Bible, we are taught that G-d doesn't create things in a state of imperfection - when things become "imperfect", there is always another force at work, making this happen (ie: man, satan, human nature, fallen angels, etc...).
So, in going back to Genesis with this precept, we can now better understand the first two verses of the Bible. In verse 2, the original Hebrew for "without form" is the same word, "tohuw" found in Isaiah 45:18. the original Hebrew for "void" is "bohuw", meaning "empty waste" or "emptiness". If the original creation was being described in verse 2 (and it was), the statements in Genesis and Isaiah would be contradictory (can't be both orderly and chaotic at the same time), which is not an applicable possibility for the word of G-d.
Now having the knowledge that the word "was" OR "hayah" in verse 2 means "to become", the seeming contradiction becomes harmonious. so, a better explanatory translation would have been:
Genesis 1:1-2 (Corrected)
1 In the beginning G-d created the heavens and The Earth in perfection.
2 The Earth then became without form, chaotic, and void; and darkness (unrighteousness) was on the face of the deep. And the Righteousness Seeking Spirit of G-d hovered over the face of the waters.
We can now consider the contrast of the Earth today and the Earth past to what will become another recreation of the Earth Future after Yahweh and His Son Yahshua establish their "Coming Kingdom" on Earth without Satan (the influence of human nature).
Isaiah 65:17-25 (Prophecy of the Future Kingdom of Yahweh "On Earth")
17 For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth; and the former things shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.
18 But be you glad and rejoice forever in that which I (Yahweh) create; for, behold, I (Yahweh) create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy.
19 I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my people; and there shall be heard in her no more the voice of weeping and the voice of crying.
20 There shall be no more there an infant of days, nor an old man who has not filled his days; for the child shall die one hundred years old, and the sinner being one hundred years old shall be accursed.
21 They shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them.
22 They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree shall be the days of my people, and my chosen shall long enjoy the work of their hands.
23 They shall not labor in vain, nor bring forth for calamity; for they are the seed of the blessed of Yahweh, and their offspring with them.
24 It shall happen that, before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.
25 The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the ox; and dust shall be the serpent's food. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, says Yahweh.
Again it is plain to see that Yahweh is re-creating The Earth into a Righteous dwelling place, wherein no one or any animal "Kills to Survive;" even so, "How are we to choose Righteousness if we are not placed into a world wherein we can receive the knowledge of Good and Evil, and then be given the opportunity to choose good over evil? True Love for Yahweh can only exist when Good is chosen over evil!
