A New Look at Creation

In The Beginning, GOD!

God’s Purpose FOR the Creation



February 1, 2017

Psalm 8:2 From the mouth of infants and nursing babes Thou hast established strength, Because of Thine adversaries, To make the enemy and the revengeful cease. 3 When I consider Thy heavens, the work of Thy fingers, The moon and the stars, which Thou hast ordained; 4 What is man, that Thou dost take thought of him? And the son of man, that Thou dost care for him? 5 Yet Thou hast made him a little lower than God, And dost crown him with glory and majesty! 6 Thou dost make him to rule over the works of Thy hands; Thou hast put all things under his feet, 7 All sheep and oxen, And also the beasts of the field, 8 The birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea, Whatever passes through the paths of the seas. 9 O LORD, our Lord, How majestic is Thy name in all the earth!

Hebrews 2:5 For He did not subject to angels the world to come, concerning which we are speaking. 6 But one has testified somewhere, saying, "WHAT IS MAN, THAT THOU REMEMBEREST HIM? OR THE SON OF MAN, THAT THOU ART CONCERNED ABOUT HIM? 7 "THOU HAST MADE HIM FOR A LITTLE WHILE LOWER THAN THE ANGELS; THOU HAST CROWNED HIM WITH GLORY AND HONOR, AND HAST APPOINTED HIM OVER THE WORKS OF THY HANDS; 8 THOU HAST PUT ALL THINGS IN SUBJECTION UNDER HIS FEET." For in subjecting all things to him, He left nothing that is not subject to him. But now we do not yet see all things subjected to him. {MAN} 9 But we do see Him who has been made for a little while lower than the angels, namely, Jesus, because of the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, that by the grace of God He might taste death for everyone. 10 For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things, and through whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to perfect the author of their salvation through sufferings.

We have heard for some time now ; about it is time to put “a demand upon God” to do “something” that we suggest! It appears that at least “some” are insisting (in prayer) that God should do, what He told us to do. For example; We are “putting a demand upon God” to do something about the corruption in Washington, solve the drug problem, cancel out pornography, save the drug dealers etc, etc.

Psalms 115:16 The heavens are the heavens of the LORD; But the earth He has given to the sons of men.

Psalms 149:4 For the LORD takes pleasure in His people; He will beautify the afflicted ones with salvation. 5 Let the godly ones exult in glory; Let them sing for joy on their beds. 6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, And a two-edged sword in their hand, 7 To execute vengeance on the nations, And punishment on the peoples; 8 To bind their kings with chains, And their nobles with fetters of iron; 9 To execute on them the judgment written; This is an honor for all His godly ones. Praise the LORD!

Salvation is supposed to result in singing, with high praise in our mouth and the

Sword of VENGEANCE in each believer’s hand. Being able to function in power and

execute judgement on the enemy, is the honor God has bestowed upon all His Godly ones.

It seems obvious that we are not accomplishing what God told us to do!

Well, brother Leo, you have been proclaiming this hyperbole for a long time but

this idea that man has been given ability, power AND the responsibility to To bind their kings with chains, And their nobles with fetters of iron; 9 To execute on them the judgment written has just gone too far. Don’t you know that we are just terrible sinners saved by grace and have just become victims of this world system? Brother, we feel it is our responsibility to inform you of all the conspiracies that have been formed against mankind and the church, and the terrible things that are happening now and are about come upon us! Brother, you must wake up and prepare for the terrible days ahead. You just keep writing documents about irrelevant things and are ignoring the real dangerous issues that are confronting us, world wide.

What I am asking is this; What are the root causes of all these rotten things that are happening? Should we just ask God To bind their kings with chains, And their nobles with fetters of iron; 9 To execute on them the judgment written upon all these conspiracies, the corruption, lies and disgraceful acts? Should we “put a demand upon God to act in our behalf?” Why don’t we pray and fast and try to get God to do what He told us to do? We could form teams to assault the gates of heaven, around the clock, until God hears and acts on what we think He should do to deliver us.

Why shouldn’t God take up a two-edged sword in HIS hand, 7 To execute vengeance on the nations, if we ask according to John 14– 15 and 16, in the name of Jesus? Wouldn’t we be praying the word of God? Yes! Except, that is what we ARE SUPPOSED TO DO. If God is Sovereign, why doesn’t HE DO IT for us? This is no longer a mystery. God gave man the dominion and the responsibility for the well being of the earth. But why? That is because God is using this earth and God’s enemies to train and prepare “man” to rule over the world yet to come and to take up their position in the Tabernacle of God and to participate in the Eternal Kingdom and Government of God! This “earth experience” is on the job training for eternity! If we ignore our “on the job training period” we will fall short of God’s eternal destiny for us.

It is “when” man can walk in obedience and do the will of God “within the things already revealed” that man will be equipped and qualified to judge the angels for their disobedience!

1Cor 6:2 Or do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if the world is judged by you, are you not competent to constitute the smallest law courts? 3 Do you not know that we shall judge angels? How much more, matters of this life?

Ignoring these clear scriptures about the “saints” judging the world and judging the angels, which is part of God’s Eternal Purpose, have been disregarded too long. Some are ignorantly sharing that “our judging the angels” is the reward we receive for “accepting salvation.” The result of this error is a “visible church” that is just looking for the free stuff and ignoring her responsibility to be fully equipped for her eternal role as co-ruler with Christ Jesus over all the works of God’s hands!

2Cor 10:4 for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. 5 We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ, 6 and we are ready to punish all disobedience, whenever your obedience is complete.

The foolish concept is this; Why don’t we ask God to use HIS WEAPONS against these problems? We must get God to stand firm against the schemes of the devil and protect us. Why? Because God loves us and wants the best for us! God knows that we are weak and unable to walk in obedience and that HE must do everything for us. We should just run to the Mercy Seat and receive mercy to excuse our apathy and unconcern for God’s Plan and Eternal Purpose!

Over the years we have encountered hundreds of leaders, in many countries, that were not aware of the tremendous things that God has prepared for “man” and the tremendous authority AND responsibility that God has placed upon “MAN” to rule over this earth, but IN COOPRERATION WITH GOD ,TODAY!!! It seems that the magnitude (and unreasonableness) of God’s Purpose for “man” has caused man to become selectively ignorant of his responsibility to fulfill God’s revealed will for man. We may assume that; Since God loves us He will forgive our desire to just live for ourselves and ignore God’s destiny for us.

If we proclaimed that the purpose of including “man,” in the creation of Genesis 1, was to deal with God’s Enemies, we would immediately be declared to be creating another false doctrine. However, WHY did God give man so much power, authority and dominion over the earth and everything on it, at the creation in Genesis 1?

How do we know that God’s Enemies already existed BEFORE Genesis 1. That is because they were in the Garden of Eden in the very beginning. God’s Enemies were NOT created in Genesis 1 so they were from the world before this one. However, this is the same earth, which was restored in Genesis 1.

It is revealed that first Adam had been given dominion over Satan and had the power and authority to rule over him, over the enemies and over the earth. Nevertheless, Eve and then Adam was deceived and permitted Satan to confuse and then to “rule” over them!

Luke 4:5 And he led Him up and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. 6 And the devil said to Him, "I will give You all this domain and its glory; for it has been handed over to me, and I give it to whomever I wish.

We must consider the total provision of the New Covenant, the aristocracy of the Church He is Building, and all the power, authority and dominion assigned to them by the Last Adam PLUS what God assigned to first Adam. Why? That our confidence! This may be very hard to prove, decisively, by scripture but the outline for the renewed AUTHORITY of the New Covenant person can be pointed out in certain scriptures.

Luke 10:17 And the seventy returned with joy, saying, "Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name." 18 And He said to them, "I was watching Satan fall from heaven like lightning. 19 "Behold, I have given you authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall injure you. 20 "Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are recorded in heaven."

This authority was given to the Church, before Calvary, (those whose names are recorded in heaven.) and was over all the power of the enemy, and included the protection so that nothing shall injure you!

My thesis is this; Neither first Adam nor first Eve used the authority they were given and lost their destiny and position in God! This same disgrace, today, is that neither has the visible church exercised her God given authority, dominion or power! At least not within my 47 years of experience.

I am not, once again, being critical of the Visible Church because neither have I used the authority given to me to rule over God’s Enemies. I am very ashamed to confess that fact! Still, since I have chosen to be ignorant of how this works, I have chosen to ignore my responsibility. My encouragement is this; “The church He is building” will not ignore her responsibility and she will complete this earth phase of her development! Since everything has already been provided for the Overcoming Church, nothing more needs to be done by God. He can rest. Asking God to do MORE for the church, than what was provided by Calvary and the New Covenant, appears to be a big waste of time!

Many of those, with whom I fellowship, agree that this is basically true within the

scriptures, but are questioning how we might begin our “search” for the EXPERIENCE of that power, authority and dominion that has been assigned to the Last Adam AND to the Last Eve, which IS the Church, the Aristocracy, He is Building! The Last Adam, who is now High Priest and Lord of maximum authority, has been given ALL POWER IN HEAVEN AND IN EARTH.

This is what we ought know! Why? “THIS has been revealed and something that belongs to us.” In other words, many of these things should be experientially functioning within the church, today. For example;

Luke 10:17 And the seventy returned with joy, saying, "Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name." 18 And He said to them, "I was watching Satan fall from heaven like lightning. 19 "Behold, I have given you authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall injure you. 20 "Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are recorded in heaven."

“And over all the power of the enemy” appears to be absolute and not at all arbitrary. Remember, that was BEFORE Calvary, before the Kingdom, before the New Covenant, before the Priesthood and was given to regular disciples who were not yet seasoned nor mature believers. If this is not taking place regularly in the church, something is wrong. The question we are asking is this; Is this normal in the church today? Should we pray and ask God why this is not happening? Of course not! Why? We already know! We are NOT using what we were given!

There are those who falsely say that this “authority” was only given to the first disciples in beginning, to get the church started, but now this no longer is needed. However, these things were confirmed just before Jesus, our High Priest and King, was taken up to the Throne of God.

Mark 16:17 "And these signs will accompany those who have believed: in My name they will cast out demons, they will speak with new tongues; 18 they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly poison, it shall not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover." 19 So then, when the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, He was received up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God.

It is clear that this power and authority was either being reaffirmed or was just beginning in a new dimension of function during the Kingdom, the New Covenant and the Priesthood! My opinion is that the New Covenant believer should have much more authority available to him than was given to the first Adam, the first Eve OR the first disciples!

My theory is that God’s Ultimate Purpose IS, for the Church He is Building, (the Aristocracy) to deal with and to overcome ALL these enemy spirits without bodies, including Satan. Why?

That is because at this creation, beginning in Genesis 1, we learn that “man” exists “Because of Thine adversaries, To make the enemy and the revengeful cease.”

Psalm 8 makes this very clear and then tells us this IS the assignment given to man. This is also reported in Hebrews 2 so it applies to the New Covenant Church! Therefore, God’s purpose, for TODAY, is for man to rule over God’s adversaries, His enemies and the revengeful and make them to cease. It seems that man has also been assigned, (at least in some small way) over all the works of God’s Hands. Why? This is part of our training for eternity and our responsibility before God. In eternity future, God’s Plan is for man to rule over the entire creation. God already has the “HEAD” of this corporate group but must now complete the Corporate Group!

Since this is such a radical assignment, that extends into ETERNITY and the next world, our generation must accept this challenge very seriously! This challenge is to learn how this experience of ruling now by this power, authority and dominion works, experientially, during this New Covenant dispensation. Why? “OVERCOMING” is assigned to us! (experientially)

Rev 21:6 And He said to me, "It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to the one who thirsts from the spring of the water of life without cost. 7 "He who overcomes shall inherit these things, and I will be his God and he will be My son. 8 "But for the cowardly and unbelieving and abominable and murderers and immoral persons and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death."

The consequences of not overcoming could be very serious. Therefore, excuses about why we couldn’t overcome will be met by great disappointment! It is better to accept that reality, now, rather that offer excuses about grace, mercy and love later. There IS no good option presented for not OVERCOMING! Why? That is because all the provision that is necessary has already been provided. Therefore, there can be no excuses when we each appear before the judgement seat.

Because my thesis is that God created man to deal with and to overcome God’s Enemies, we will begin in Genesis one to attempt to support my thesis!

The Geneses account of the creation has been attacked by many "inside" the church as well as those “outside” the church. The objection is that Genesis is not a scientific account with every “I” dotted and every “T” crossed. There is no claim in scripture that the Genesis Account is scientific. It is just presented as FACT! The claim is that it is inspired and that it is God's revelation and about His creation, presented from His viewpoint. The scriptures are primarily to unfold God's Plan for man to complete God’s Eternal Purpose. That means our “Overcoming God’s adversaries and then judging God’s enemies (at least the fallen angels) BEFORE the next creation of the Tabernacle of God can be completed.” Why? That is because God’s enemies must be dealt with and stopped or To make the enemy and the revengeful cease. Why? Maybe we can explain from Ezekiel 28 and from Isaiah 14.

God is speaking directly to Satan and reminding him of what transpired when he was the Prince of Tyre on the earth before this. These are directs quotes and confrontations. These words are NOT symbolic.

Ezekiel 28:2 "Son of man, say to the leader of Tyre, 'Thus says the Lord GOD, "Because your heart is lifted up And you have said, 'I am a god, I sit in the seat of gods, In the heart of the seas'; Yet you are a man and not God, Although you make your heart like the heart of God-- 3 Behold, you are wiser than Daniel; There is no secret that is a match for you. 4 "By your wisdom and understanding You have acquired riches for yourself, And have acquired gold and silver for your treasuries. 5 "By your great wisdom, by your trade You have increased your riches, And your heart is lifted up because of your riches--

6 Therefore, thus says the Lord GOD, 'Because you have made your heart Like the heart of God, 7 Therefore, behold, I will bring strangers upon you, The most ruthless of the nations. And they will draw their swords Against the beauty of your wisdom And defile your splendor. 8 'They will bring you down to the pit, And you will die the death of those who are slain In the heart of the seas. 9 'Will you still say, "I am a god," In the presence of your slayer, Although you are a man and not God, In the hands of those who wound you? 10 'You will die the death of the uncircumcised By the hand of strangers, For I have spoken!' declares the Lord GOD!"'"

God is speaking directly to Satan and confronts him about why he fell and what his eternal destiny will be. God also tells him that “In the hands of those who wound you? 10 'You will die the death of the uncircumcised By the hand of strangers.” By today’s knowledge we know these strangers that wound him and cause him to suffer the same death as the uncircumcised is assigned to the Church He is Building! (That means “death” but that their “worm– inner man– never dies.”

Isa 14:13 "But you said in your heart, 'I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God, And I will sit on the mount of assembly In the recesses of the north. 14 'I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.' 15 "Nevertheless you will be thrust down to Sheol, To the recesses of the pit. 16 "Those who see you will gaze at you, They will ponder over you, saying, 'Is this the man who made the earth tremble, Who shook kingdoms, 17 Who made the world like a wilderness And overthrew its cities, Who did not allow his prisoners to go home?' 18 "All the kings of the nations lie in glory, Each in his own tomb. 19 "But you have been cast out of your tomb Like a rejected branch, Clothed with the slain who are pierced with a sword, Who go down to the stones of the pit, Like a trampled corpse. 20 "You will not be united with them in burial, Because you have ruined your country, You have slain your people. May the offspring of evildoers not be mentioned forever.

In the creation before this one, God gave dominion of the earth to the angels, with Satan as its leader. (He was the Prince of Tyre) Obviously there was no law by which God could judge the angels and the persons who inhabited this earth at that time. For that reason these enemies of God were not judged at the time the earth was submerged in water. Even though there were certain consequences to their rebellion recorded in Isaiah 14 and in Ezekiel 28, they were not locked up nor destroyed. That judgement must wait until God can raise up created beings who can walk in obedience! It would be through their obedience that they were qualified to judge God’s Enemies, the angels, the inhabitants of the former earth, and the world, for their collective disobedience! Their judgement is future but the timetable depends upon the Church He is Building! (Not upon Israel)

Therefore, when God restored the earth to dry ground and made it an inhabitable place for man, the enemies of God reemerged from the deep with the earth. Then God created a new man from the dirt of the earth to rule over the earth and the things on it. Most of those enemies of God were from the other creation. These enemies of God’s, the adversaries, enemies and the revengeful that emerged from the deep with the earth, have been left for man to fully deal with. Why? This is all part of the training process for “man” to take his place in the world yet to come!

God has taken on a tremendous task. He started with the lowest material from the earth which is dirt. From that dirt God will raise up a corporate group – the Church He is Building– that will walk in obedience to God’s inner Laws and come to perfection and be fully equipped to Rule Over All the Works of His Hands. That total realm, of the next creation, is called the Tabernacle of God! This makes up the Three Heavens! Everyone will be assigned to the “heaven” that matches their maturity and ability to function! Some will only be qualified for the New Earth. Some will be qualified for New Heaven and others will qualify for the “BRIDE” and inhabit the New Jerusalem to function as a Priesthood and as rulers (kings) within His Kingdom Government!

The present creation or this present restoration of the earth, establishes the church age, during which man is developed and prepared to function within and to fulfill God’s Eternal Purpose. God created man to fulfill God’s Eternal Purpose and to deal with God’s Enemies (and not just go to heaven when he dies)! This Eternal Fact has been distorted by the current ministries to become a man centered message about “say these words and believe our doctrine and go to heaven when you die.” This whole error revolves around a creation that was designed by God just for man’s benefit and man’s happiness.” Even Genesis 3 has been misinterpreted as man fell from grace! Now “grace” restores man so he can go to heaven and ride around on the clouds! Man is saved so he can rest, relax and be on vacation for eternity!

Genesis 3 reveals how man fell from God’s Purpose and died to God’s Plan for man to rule over God’s Enemies. Man did not just fall into sin but he fell from God’s Purpose and the very reason God created man and set him in the Garden– to take dominion and rule over the earth AND over God’s enemies !

Without this basic knowledge, the ignorance of the ministries, and the church, promotes this strange gospel of the half– priced sale, the gospel of the bargains. That means; God's redemption in Jesus Christ, is just to save man from hell so he could go to heaven when he dies and to enjoy heaven for eternity. That is the major error of our evangelistic system and gives the impression that salvation is man centered and for man’s eternal benefit! No, that is silly! Salvation is to return man back to fulfill God’s Original Purpose! For example; In order to bring to light the revelation of man's need of redemption and then full salvation, it is important to show God's purpose in creating man in the first place, in Genesis one! Man was created to take over the dominion of the earth and the things on it– God’s Enemies– and to rule over the earth in cooperation with God. ( to burn Incense)

Man was given dominion over everything Except himself. (The Consecration Offering) Adam and Eve, like the visible church, must have assumed they were created independent and could do as they pleased. This is also the assumption of most of the believers in visible church that we have met! They confess; We are FREE so don’t tell us about the Laws of the Kingdom or the Kingdom requirements. We believe something about Jesus and that is ALL that is required to go to heaven.

By now there should be a universal understanding of how man was deceived and fell into sin and death. If man had never sinned there would be no need of redemption. However, since man did sin and died to God’s Plan and Purpose, full redemption must restore us to a FULL ability to overcome and to be equipped to fulfill God’s Plan and Purpose. The immediate purpose for today’s church is to recognize that man exists “Because of Thine adversaries, To make the enemy and the revengeful cease.”

This redemption must also continue to prepare the redeemed believers to rule as a Kingdom of Priests over the works of God’s Hands, which is the Tabernacle of God. Why? God’s original plan was for man to rule over this earth and everything on it! The restoration of this earth out of the water, to which it had descended, signaled the beginning of the time for God’s Ultimate Purpose to be fulfilled. This historically began about 6000 years ago, but God’s Purpose still continues today and has not changed!

The discouraging thing today is that God’s Purpose is seldom preached and the Genesis account is used as a cliche. Why? It is not scientifically provable. Why? Science has proved this earth is several thousands of years old and may have been created when different planets smashed together in the big bang.

God just gives several one sentence accounts to unfold His revelation of the “beginning” and why man was created to participate in God’s Plan. These short accounts are not meant to answer every conceivable question that might arise about creation. If every possible answer was written out, the bible would be several feet thick and still not satisfy everyone. Since God was there when it all began, He is the only one who can accurately define how and why it happened. If He told us everything concerning His reasons, we still couldn't understand it.

It is by faith that we understand that the worlds were formed by the Word of God, so that what is seen is not made out of things which are visible. Neither Science nor Geology can explain such invisible things. Science and Geology reads the first two chapters of Geneses and says "We do not agree". Of course we know you can't read the scriptures the same way you read a geology book. Why? That is because the scriptures are looking at the eternal realms of creation and geology is looking at the temporal and earthly realms of creation. Of course these two viewpoints clash!

Therefore, the scriptures are the revelation of the “beginning” from God’s Viewpoint and science and geology determines the details of creation that are determined by natural research. The conflict between the Bible account of creation and the viewpoint of science continues even though the scriptures are revelation, and the Geological interpretation is from an earth bound investigation!


Still, the Bible account will still stand up to reason by those who have a restored inner life. However, we must search more than one chapter of the Bible to find the answer and knowledge of why it all began.

Nevertheless, when people find the creation account amusing and reject Geneses one, they don't bother searching any farther for Truth. Most Geologists wouldn't take time to examine the Hebrew words to see what they mean or to even search the Scriptures. Why? Many fundamentalists still foolishly insist upon a 6000 year history of the earth. No geologist, who can trace the earth history back several thousand years, could accept a 6000 year history as being anything but ignorance. This 6000 year history of earth has been a contentious theory among Bible scholars for several hundred years. No one seems to have solved the problem nor come up with a very clear conclusion to share from the pulpit.

According to Josephus, even the early church had much discussion about these things. It is my opinion that there is no reason for the modern church to be in darkness concerning these things. Even though volumes have been written on the subject, few are entirely satisfied with the conclusions. It is my opinion that we don't have to be scholars or theologians to understand the logical answer! Most of what we need to understand is just to evaluate what the scripture says and what others have discovered. The book of Geneses is not a history of all that God has done but an unfolding of what man needs to know in order to exercise his measure of faith in God's account.

The Bible never says that the history of the earth is 6000 years but that the history of Adam and his offspring is 6000 years. Now geology rejects the 6000 years history of Adam as the total history of the earth! Why? That is because they have found fossils much older than even one million years. Both sides think the other side is stupid.

However, there is no reason why we need to reconcile the Bible history of Adam’s race to the Geological History of the Earth. Why? That is because the earth already existed in Genesis 1, but was submerged in water! In Genesis one the earth was raised out of the water to become dry land. That is not even controversial and is clearly revealed! Christians need to really know what the scriptures reveal in Genesis so their faith is not so easily shaken by geology. Still, all scientific truth will agree with all other truth when viewed from the eternal perspective and from the correct viewpoint.

Then, brother, what is the answer to all these bones and things that have been dug up and dated back for millions of years? We certainly have no quarrel with those ancient things. The Bible is primarily a history of the race of Adam, created from dirt, and then the history of the natural man and its fallen existence until the birth of a new and entirely different species, called Christian!

In my Bible, Genesis 1:1 is just made up of just 10 words. It is very important for every Christian to be firm in their faith and especially about the CREATION and God’s Eternal Purpose! Why? Even simply geology has destroyed many believer’s faith in the Genesis Creation !

As the enemy of mankind increases his attack upon man’s faith – as the enemy sees the time drawing near– and the words of the Prophets are being fulfilled– we must have clear answers, that really make sense to the average believer. The creation need not be another mystery.

GEN 1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. This is just a stated fact but within these 10 words is the unfolding of the first challenged truth. In the beginning refers to the “eon of ages past.” The number of years are not important but no specific time or years were given. This happened long before He formed Adam from the dirt. Let us explain why!

“God created” means that God made something out of nothing or at least not out of any thing that is visible. Since God is the ultimate Creator, whatever He creates is perfect. He doesn't create any thing slipshod nor does He just throw something together for the time being. What He created was "the heavens" and "the earth". Both the Heavens and the Earth existed before Genesis one! So let us be very clear! The earth already existed but was submerged in water. This is important because what God restored from the waters in the next verses was just the earth and not the heavens.

This fact hinges of on divinely given facts and very specific words. The word used in Geneses 1:1 for created is "bara" in the original. This word is used 3 more times in Geneses 1 and Geneses 2. The other times are GEN 1:21 And God created ( bara) the great sea monsters, and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarmed after their kind, and every winged bird after its kind; and God saw that it was good. GEN 1:27 And God created ( bara) man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. GEN 2:3 Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created

(bara) and made. ( asah).

GEN 2:7 Then the Lord God formed ( yatsar) man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being. These three words represents three kinds of work that God did in Geneses 1 & 2 .

We can see these three words again in ISA 43:7. Everyone who is called by My name, And whom I have created for My glory, Whom I have formed, even whom I have made. " Created, formed and made are all connected but are not the same thing. Neither are they variations of one word but three distinct words!

(1) Created (bara) means calling into existence without the aid of any thing that pre-existed, starting new!

(2) Formed ( yatsar) means to shape or fashion out of some existing material. This word is used of a potter forming a pot out of clay.

(3) "Made" (asah) means to prepare out of something that already was there. We could say, the chair was made out of pieces of wood.

In the beginning God created (bara) the heavens and the earth. In the beginning He created them out of nothing. This is confirmed in the New Testament!

Col 1:16 For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth,

visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities--all things have been created by Him and for Him.

John 1:3 All things came into being by Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being.

The earth that already exited in Genesis 1:2, could only have been made by God. Therefore, There was a creation before this one that was destroyed when it was submerged in water. In the original creation, Or “In the Beginning” there was nothing there but space but God called the earth into existence by the power of His word.

After the original creation, (Bara) the heavens and the earth were already there. This was before Genesis 1. However, the original earth was submerged in water. "The heavens" here refers to the area where the stars are, not the area surrounding the earth which is referred to as "air" or atmosphere. The heavens where the stars are have not been altered since the original creation before Genesis 1. The earth and the atmosphere have changed and are not the same as God originally created them.

The earth mentioned in Gen 1:1 is the same earth but not in the same condition as the earth in Gen 1:2. When the earth was first created by God it was perfect. God is a perfect Creator. He does not create things "formless" and "void" and "in darkness". The margin says "a waste and emptiness". Waste and void was not the original creation but the result of something that happened after it was created perfect.

ISA 45:18 For thus says the Lord, who created the heavens (He is the God who formed the earth and made it, He established it and did not create it a waste place, {But} formed it to be inhabited), "I am the Lord, and there is none else.

The earth was not created a waste or desolate place! Therefore, it must have gotten that way between Genesis 1; 1 and Genesis 1:2.

From verse 3 onward it does not speak about the original creation but the restoration of the earth that had become desolate. This was Not a new recreation but a restoration of the former earth. The first time God “created” everything out of nothing but the in restoration, God took what was there and repaired it. The earth was created and made "inhabitable" but it became "uninhabitable". God used six days to accomplish the restoration to make the earth inhabitable again. Gen 1:3 onward is the earth as we know it today but before the fall of man. It is the same earth but it is not in the same uninhabitable condition as it was in Genesis 1:1

In verse 2 there is a connecting word "and" which in several places is translated "but". The earth was created perfect "BUT" it became formless and void. The word "was" (formless) is other places translated " BECAME" (formless). Many of the Hebrew words have different usage and it is up to the translator to choose one. "BECAME" is more definitive here than "but". Many Hebrew scholars agree on this. They point out that the same word is used in GEN 19:26 But his wife, from behind him, looked {back;} and she became a pillar of salt. If we put this in the context of Gen 1:2 we could say " And his wife looked back and was a pillar of salt". It says the same thing but in Gen 1:2 BECAME would be much clearer.

Also in GEN 2:7 Then the Lord God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being is translated from the same word again. He was a living being but the translators used " He became a living being".

Exodus 20:11 "For in six days the Lord made (yatsar) the heavens and the earth, the sea and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day; therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy. God "created" (bara) the heavens and the earth. Then in six days "He made" (yatsar) them. It is not possible to measure the time span between “create" and "made". The first (bara) is creating out of nothing and the second is (yatsar) remaking out of something that was already there.

Sometimes it is mistakenly said that man is a creator. That is not possible. Man can form and make but only God can create.

2Peter 3:5 For when they maintain this, it escapes their notice that by the word of God {the} heavens existed long ago and {the} earth was formed out of water and by water, 6 through which the world at that time was destroyed, being flooded with water. 7 But the present heavens and earth by His word are being reserved for fire, kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men. The heavens existed "LONG AGO", the earth was "FORMED OUT OF WATER". Many commentators believe that verse 5 refers to the time of Genesis 1:1 and verse 6 was the time the earth "became" formless and void. The heavens and earth spoken of in verse 7 refer to the restored heaven and earth on which we live.

Therefore, we must not confuse the 2 Peter account with Noah when the earth was covered by water but not destroyed by water. Why? The present heavens and earth, which by His word are being reserved for fire is the exact same heaven and earth we have today. ,

The first thing that God did in the restoration was to speak light into existence because darkness was over everything. God is light. He didn't have to create it. We see that the earth or "firmament" already existed but it was flooded over with water and was in the deep. Therefore, it was waste, formless and empty and void. The earth was already there. What God did was command it to come out of the water. God didn't create the heavens of the stars on the second day but He spoke and separated the waters below from the waters above and the heavens appeared. That is the heavens that is our present atmosphere.

For six days God continued to restore until all was restored to make an inhabitable place for man but also to make a place for man to fulfil God’s Eternal Purpose. The total wisdom and brevity shown in Gen 1:1 and Gen 1:2 identifies the mark of the Word of God. In 10 words God covers all of the original creation. In verse 2 He states the condition that had come upon the earth. In 29 verses He covers all of the restoration of the Earth to become an inhabitable place. The Earth was inhabitable and it became uninhabitable and then it became inhabitable once again. We live on that last inhabitable place.

No man could write such an account without adding all kinds of explanations and details. This brevity is the mark of God. Nothing here satisfies the curiosity of man with fine details and explanations. Therefore, it must just be received by faith.

If you want to know more about creation, you must get in touch with the God of the scriptures and not with geology nor science . When He reveals Himself, then everything else is acceptable and believable, even if we don’t understand it! The Bible maybe not be intellectually satisfying because it exists in a realm of faith. It is the mystery of Genesis 1 & Genesis 2 that reveals the character and glory of God, the “Creator” who “creates things”, “He makes” things and “He forms” things.

Genesis 3 reveals the character and nature of man. God creates perfect and innocent in God's own image and likeness but man fell from God’s Purpose! Now “man” must be born again and man's character, motives and nature must be rebuilt – made and formed by various trials and decisions and through his own cross he must be qualified to participate in God’s Eternal Purpose.

This need of man for a total rebuilding and restructuring, reveals that in the process we call salvation, God must completely rebuild and restore each of us from what we were to what we must become. This is not a restoration to just to what Adam was but to what God predestined us to become. Christianity is NOT just forgiving the Adam man of his sin and rebellion. Each of us must become Christians, New Creations. That means that everything about our character, attitudes, ambitions and nature are “rebuilt– remade– to be in harmony with God's character and eternal purpose!

In Genesis 3 we see the temptation of man and the corruption of man and the collapse of his idyllic state. There is no mention of angels or demons or Satan. Just this serpent.

REV 12:9 And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.

There is no record of the creation of Satan so we can assume that he existed before the restoration of Genesis 1:3. The same is true of angels and demons. The scripture is very detailed about what God created or formed or made in those six days. If these spiritual beings were not created then, when were they created? There must have been a former creation of beings in the original world. That is our theory!

Archaeologists have found evidence of disease, death, war and violence in their research of these ancient times, that belonged to another kind of man. What they refer to as "prehistoric man" or that existed before our history began. Sin and rebellion, death and destruction and the ruin of the earth was prehistoric. They found that some cataclysmic event destroyed these civilization, the birds and the animals.

The bible is not a record of those civilizations but it gives some reference to that time.

Jeremiah 4:23 I looked on the earth, and behold, {it was} formless and void; And to the heavens, and they had no light. 24 I looked on the mountains, and behold, they were quaking, And all the hills moved to and fro. 25 I looked, and behold, there was no man, And all the birds of the heavens had fled. 26 I looked, and behold, the fruitful land was a wilderness, And all its cities were pulled down Before the Lord, before His fierce anger. 27 For thus says the Lord, "The whole land shall be a desolation, Yet I will not execute a complete destruction. 28 "For this the earth shall mourn, And the heavens above be dark, Because I have spoken, I have purposed, And I will not change My mind, nor will I turn from it."

This obviously took place between Genesis 1:1 and Genesis 1:2. Something obviously happened in the former world that caused God to submerge it in water.

When we search the scriptures we only find one explanation.

Ezekiel 28:11 Again the word of the Lord came to me saying, 12 "Son of man, take up a lamentation over the king of Tyre, and say to him, 'Thus says the Lord God, "You had the seal of perfection, Full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. 13 "You were in Eden, the garden of God; Every precious stone was your covering: The ruby, the topaz, and the diamond; The beryl, the onyx, and the jasper; The lapis lazuli, the turquoise, and the emerald; And the gold, the workmanship of your settings and sockets, Was in you. On the day that you were created They were prepared. 14 "You were the anointed cherub who covers, And I placed you {there.} You were on the holy mountain of God; You walked in the midst of the stones of fire. 15 "You were blameless in your ways From the day you were created, Until unrighteousness was found in you. 16 "By the abundance of your trade You were internally filled with violence, And you sinned; Therefore I have cast you as profane From the mountain of God. And I have destroyed you, O covering cherub, From the midst of the stones of fire. 17 "Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty; You corrupted your wisdom by reason of your splendor. I cast you to the ground; I put you before kings, That they may see you. 18 "By the multitude of your iniquities, In the unrighteousness of your trade, You profaned your sanctuaries. Therefore I have brought fire from the midst of you; It has consumed you, And I have turned you to ashes on the earth In the eyes of all who see you. 19 "All who know you among the peoples Are appalled at you; You have become terrified, And you will be no more."

Most all of these statements cannot be applied to an earthly King of Tyre. Still, Satan was the Prince of Tyre or in charge of Tyre! This is most likely speaking of the real power behind an earthly king and is prophetic of the anti-christ. However, since verses 11 to 15 cannot be explained by any earthly person, it must be speaking of Satan. Of course, this is speaking of Satan before he was cast out of the mountain of God when he was still in his original created state. This Eden, from which he fell, is obviously NOT the Garden of Eden in which Adam and Eve lived. There was also a garden east of Eden.

Isaiah 14:12 "How you have fallen from heaven, O star of the morning, son of the dawn! You have been cut down to the earth, You who have weakened the nations!

Satan was originally called by another name before he became God's adversary by attempting to take over God's throne. Originally Satan was in Eden, the garden of God.

Ezekiel 28:13 "You were in Eden, the garden of God; Every precious stone was your covering: The ruby, the topaz, and the diamond; The beryl, the onyx, and the jasper; The lapis lazuli, the turquoise, and the emerald; And the gold, the workmanship of your settings and sockets, Was in you. On the day that you were created They were prepared.

In the Eden of Genesis 3, Satan had already lost all this and was crawling around in the form of a snake. Then this must be speaking of a former "EDEN" of that former world. This Lucifer had a very high position (arch angel) in the realms of God and was a very beautiful creature. He had access to the very presence of God and the fire that surrounds the throne. Lucifer was created perfect because that is how God creates all things. God is the perfect Creator. The transition from Lucifer to Satan is also reflected in what took place in man when he fell into the Devil's temptation.

Isaiah 14:12 "How you have fallen from heaven, O star of the morning, son of the dawn! You have been cut down to the earth, You who have weakened the nations! 13 "But you said in your heart, 'I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God, And I will sit on the mount of assembly In the recesses of the north. 14I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.' 15 "Nevertheless you will be thrust down to Sheol, To the recesses of the pit. 17 Who made the world like a wilderness And overthrew its cities, Who did not allow his prisoners to {go} home? ' 18 "All the kings of the nations lie in glory, Each in his own tomb. 19 "But you have been cast out of your tomb Like a rejected branch, Clothed with the slain who are pierced with a sword, Who go down to the stones of the pit, Like a trampled corpse. 20 "You will not be united with them in burial, Because you have ruined your country, You have slain your people. May the offspring of evildoers not be mentioned forever. 21 "Prepare for his sons a place of slaughter Because of the iniquity of their fathers. They must not arise and take possession of the earth And fill the face of the world with cities."

Here, again, are facts that cannot be assigned to an human, earthly king. This is obviously speaking about Lucifer when he became Satan, God's adversary and a “leader” of God’s enemies. It was he who made the former world a wilderness and destroyed it's cities. He was the one who was responsible for all the slain of the former world. No one who is of Satan or like Satan will be permitted to rise and take possession of the earth or inhabit it's cities in the eternal Kingdom. At one time they (the adversaries) did hold that possession but lost it. All will be cast into the pit. This will include fallen angels, demons and all those who stay in their fallen nature. The fallen angels are most likely the principalities and powers in;

Ephesians 6:12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual {forces} of wickedness in the heavenly {places.}

Throughout scripture we find references to evil spirits or demons. They were identified and cast out by Jesus and the disciples in the New Testament. No one knows who they are or where they came from but Derek Prince says he believes they are from the former world that Satan ruined. That world was not created a waste place but became a waste place when Satan caused its surface to be destroyed by water.

Isaiah 45:18 For thus says the Lord, who created the heavens (He is the God who formed the earth and made it, He established it and did not create it a waste place, {But} formed it to be inhabited), "I am the Lord, and there is none else.

We have established that this former world was not the same as identified in Genesis 1:2. Therefore, God created the former world (before Genesis 1) to be inhabited. In other words, the former earth was inhabited by some form of life with cities and inhabitable places. This is the evidence of the inhabitants, animals and the generations that the archaeologists are still finding. These demon spirits are probably from those generations that predated first Adam. From the New Testament we learn that they are always trying to get back into a human body so they can have a manifestation and practice some perversion. Those spirits without bodies can only wander and find no rest until they find a body to inhabit. Mat 12:43.

Satan may have been the "governor" under God to govern the former world and it's inhabitants. Why? He is still controlling those spirits but they obviously know what their fate will be when this age ends.

Luke 8:30 And Jesus asked him, "What is your name?" And he said, "Legion"; for many demons had entered him. 31 And they were entreating Him not to command them to depart into the abyss. 32 Now there was a herd of many swine feeding there on the mountain; and {the demons} entreated Him to permit them to enter the swine. And He gave them permission.

They surely knew who Jesus is and they knew He had authority over them.

In Scofield's notes he also believes that Jeremiah 4:23-28 is speaking about the former world and it was Satan's rebellion that caused the former world to become formless and waste.

Jeremiah 4:23 I looked on the earth, and behold, it was formless and void; And to the heavens, and they had no light. 24 I looked on the mountains, and behold, they were quaking, And all the hills moved to and fro. 25 I looked, and behold, there was no man, And all the birds of the heavens had fled. 26 I looked, and behold, the fruitful land was a wilderness, And all its cities were pulled down Before the LORD, before His fierce anger. 27 For thus says the LORD, "The whole land shall be a desolation, Yet I will not execute a complete destruction. 28 "For this the earth shall mourn, And the heavens above be dark, Because I have spoken, I have purposed, And I will not change My mind, nor will I turn from it."

Hell was actually prepared for the Devil and for all those who participated in his rebellion. It seems obvious that 2/3 of the angels did NOT participate.

Matthew 25:41 "Then He will also say to those on His left, 'Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels;

Now the second man and the Last Adam has arisen upon the earth. He is the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God. He has become the first (fruit) of a different new species of men. He brings the redeemed back to a new Genesis and with our salvation experience, we start NEW again. In the same way that Satan was loosed in the Garden of Eden, he is still loosed today.

We, as a corporate group called “the church” are here to deal with him and God’s enemies as part of our training process for eternity. In the same way that he tempted Adam and Eve, he is tempting the all those who are birthed into this new creation, called Christianity. Jesus Christ has completely defeated Satan and has recovered all that the first Adam lost. Christ Jesus has been given all first Adam’s authority plus now He has been given all authority over heaven and earth. He has assigned that to us, IN HIS NAME. Now, WE must be careful not to squander and waste our “inheritance” (this power, authority and dominion in His name) on perverted living and some sense of false security that we can't fall like the first Adam.

Jesus Christ has restored creation to it's original design and for God’s Original Purpose! However, now we also all have to be tested to see how we will walk in obedience and who we will serve during our time on earth. The reason for all this testing, suffering and trials is because God is preparing a corporate group to fulfill His Eternal Purpose. Participating in a new beginning is not the goal! This has become a Sunday message but is NOT the goal! However, the forgiveness of sins is just the beginning but God's predestined end is the Christian Goal.

The world of God's restoration has been lost by first Adam and therefore had to be recovered by Last Adam That recovery began at Calvary and brings us back to Genesis 2. The question now to be answered is: Will we also be deceived by Satan and forfeit God's desired end and Predestined Eternal Destiny for us?

2Corinthians 11:2 For I am jealous for you with a godly jealousy; for I betrothed you to one husband, that to Christ I might present you {as} a pure virgin. 3 But I am afraid, lest as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds should be led astray from the simplicity and purity {of devotion} to Christ.

YES! It can happen to us the same as it happened to Eve. Our Last "Adam" was not deceived but now, Paul asks, will the last Eve (the church) be deceived? In my opinion it already has been deceived!

Job 9:4 "Wise in heart and mighty in strength, Who has defied Him without harm? 5 "{It is God} who removes the mountains, they know not {how,} When He overturns them in His anger; 6 Who shakes the earth out of its place, And its pillars tremble; 7 Who commands the sun not to shine, And sets a seal upon the stars;

We need to ask, “When did this take place in the history of the earth since Gen 1:3?” It seems obvious that this “Job experience” has to be assigned to a former world before this one.

If God destroyed the former world with water and has promised to destroy this one with fire, what manner of lives should we be living?

2Peter 3:11 Since all these things are to be destroyed in this way, what sort of people ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, 12 looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, on account of which the heavens will be destroyed by burning, and the elements will melt with intense heat! 13 But according to His promise we are looking for new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness dwells. 14 Therefore, beloved, since you look for these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, spotless and blameless.

To summarize what we have deduced from the scriptures we could say that in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. According to Jer. 4:23-26 there were cities and fruitful lands and inhabitants in that world. The earth was a beautiful place. Then, suddenly, the earth became a waste place. The earth was submerged in water for an undetermined time. Possible thousands of years or more. Then the Spirit of God began to move upon the face of the waters. Suddenly, God's word spoke and the restoration process began. On the sixth day God created man, male and female, and gave them dominion over the earth. The bible says that man was created in God's own image and likeness. This aspect of man had to be "created" because there was nothing on the earth that could make this kind of man. Created means that he didn't exist before. Then the bible says that God formed man (body) out of the dust from the ground. One part of man was created and another part was made or formed. Man's body was formed like a potter forms clay. The spirit and soul of man were created. There was nothing on the earth from which to make spirit or soul but his body was made from dirt.

In six literal days, each with an evening and morning, God restored the earth, it's vegetation, animals, fish and birds and man. Before this time Satan was cast out of the mountain of God and his angels with him. They probably ascended with the former earth and later dwelt in the mid heavens and Satan became the prince of the power of the air. Satan was free to tempt Eve and she disobeyed God, and also Adam disobeyed God. Why? They did not overcome or even resist Satan and nether did they cause the enemy to cease.

Therefore, Man fell into trespasses and sin and because of that, this death came upon on all men, because all men have existed in the condition of sin. Man now had no way to redeem himself. There was no way he could stand righteous before God.

Since by man came death, by man also had to come the resurrection from the dead. No angel could redeem man. Therefore, God, Himself had to stretch out His hand to bring salvation to mankind. God, by His semen, the Word of God, birthed a new creation, a New Species, the Lord Jesus Christ! Because He was born innocent and without sin He could die as the Lamb of God on Calvary. Jesus Christ, at His birth as a new Species, became the second man and the last Adam. Through faith in Him, men can now receive forgiveness of sins and be reconciled to God.

Once man is redeemed he still must fulfil God's original purpose because we have been predestined unto His purpose. God redeemed us, not just to save us from hell but to REMAKE US so we could fulfil God's Eternal Purpose.

Jesus Christ has now been given power, dominion and authority over heaven and earth. He is also HEAD over a Corporate body, called the Church He is Building! The first Adam only had authority and dominion over the earth. Now Jesus has given this greater dominion to His body, the church. As New Creations we are to be fruitful ( John 15) and multiply and fill the earth and subdue and guard it and take it back from the devil and his crowd and cause all God’s Enemies to cease. Satan was defeated at Calvary but now we must enforce that defeat and then establish Christ Jesus’ victory over God’s Enemies. Man, created in God's own image and likeness, reveals that God's intention was for man to represent God and to cooperate with God in all things to manage (rule) the Earth with Christ Jesus !

It is interesting to note that on each of the six days of restoration of the earth there was evening and morning for each day but on God's Sabbath day there was no evening and morning. This is one eternal day. That is the Sabbath Rest that can only be assigned to the New Species Creation.

We saw that there was an original creation that became ruined and fell into darkness. It that same way each one of us of the first Adam have become ruined and fell into darkness. God's purpose was interrupted because the man in His purpose was in darkness. He was dead in trespasses and sins. Man had come under God's judgement of death. Man's natural condition before God is waste and void and empty. Man cannot make light so how will he ever come out of darkness? The Spirit must hover over us and give us light. No man can come unless the Father draw him. Without God there is no way for fallen man to lift himself up or recover. He is forever lost.

But one day God says let there be light and light shines out of darkness like the day star arising in our hearts. As we respond to the light and divine drawing, the work of restoration begins. This is called "regeneration" or it means "a new Genesis". Most people think that now it is all light (day) and no evening but God's work is evening and then morning. Darkness still exists but our goal is to walk in His light. Eventually, if we continue to develop as a New Creation, we will enter into God's Sabbath Rest, which is one eternal day.

Then to participate in God’s new process, God focuses upon the waters and brings us to water baptism to separate us from the former creation. Here there is a great separation of that which is above from that which is below. Then there is an emergence up out of the water in resurrection on the third day. Jesus' resurrection was on the third day.

1Corinthians 15:4 and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures.

God spoke twice on the third day. The first time the earth emerged up out of the water and the second time the earth produced grass, herbs and fruit trees. This speaks of resurrection life again from the dead. Man's spirit comes alive and he is born again. Fruit bearing is the goal of resurrection.

Romans 7:4 Therefore, my brethren, you also were made to die to the Law through the body of Christ, that you might be joined to another, to Him who was raised from the dead, that we might bear fruit for God.

Through each of the six days, God's purpose, during the church age, is to restore every aspect of our life. His work continues until we enter His seventh day Sabbath Rest. God was satisfied with each days work but the next days work still had to be done. Each days work accomplished something different and necessary. God must bring us through several spiritual stages of restoration and He must work until He is satisfied.

If we stop or call a halt to God’s dealing in our lives we will suffer eternal loss because the full restoration to God’s Purpose has not yet taken place. The complete restoration ( or perfection) is required to be an overcomer and inherit all things and to sit with Him on His throne.

Each days work was accomplished by God's word. If we neglect God's word or ignore it, (The Sperma and the New Creation) we suffer eternal loss. God releases His power with His word. Our confidence is that God didn't stop half through in His restoration of the earth and He will not stop until he is satisfied with our restoration. That is why the bible say that we are a new creation. God is taking nothing and making something out of it. His goal is to restore us to His own image and likeness so He can give us dominion over all the works of His hands.

Everything was created for Jesus Christ originally and our restoration is also completely through Jesus Christ. There is nothing created that He didn't create. Why? That s because He alone is Creator! That means in the physical as well as the spiritual realms.

God created man as a perfect creation. But like the original world was ruined by the work of the Devil and by God’s Enemies, so also was man. The earth was restored in the renewal and the light again shone and fruit grew. It that same way fallen man exists on the earth today but he also has been ruined. Even though man looks normal outwardly, inwardly man is ruined, wasted, submerged and in darkness. The earth had no way to restore itself and we have no way to recover by ourselves. God must work in us or nothing will change. Man has already been created and made so now he must be restored, rebuilt, reformed and repaired.

Man must not just be forgiven of sin but he must be completely restored to the ability to complete God’s Purpose. This total restoration is also the work of God. He begins this work in us and He must complete it for the day of Jesus Christ. The Spirit of God must move over us and light must shine in us and we must continue to grow and develop. Why? That is because God still is looking to us for fruit. There must be a separation between that which is above from that which is below. We must emerge in resurrection and fulfil the purpose for which God created us in the first place. That alone is eternal fruit. The fulfillment of “the feast of firstfruits harvest” begins through the resurrection of Life and the New Creation Species! These are those who have been JOINED to Jesus Christ, in one New Man, and have borne fruit for God. Even as Earth was without form, wasted, void and in darkness and God was able to totally restore it to acceptable function, so also, the fallen, failed, destroyed and without Life, or light, MAN, when God begins His “evening and morning recovery process” this helpless and hopeless ‘man” can be recreated to take his place in the Tabernacle of God and returned to function as a corporate Kingdom of Priests who are perfected and prepared to Cooperate with God in ruling, with Christ Jesus, over all the works of God’s hands!

This “Word picture” that God has prepared for us should give all of us the revelation, the courage, the desire, the determination and encouragement to conquer every obstacle and to press into God’s Eternal Purpose, at any cost! God’s Enemies are strong and desperate, because they know their destiny, but we have more power, authority and dominion than is necessary to cause them to cease. We just have to USE IT and to STOP being deceived! We must become the conquerors and stop being the victims. We must become the BODY OF OUR GREAT HIGH PRIEST WHO IS SITTING AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD! HE IS NOT THE VICTIM of the enemies conspiracies!

Are ALL THINGS under our feet or NOT?
