It is essential for mankind to understand the truth about the Creation—the creation of the earth, the universe, of man, and of all forms of life. This understanding is essential to salvation. Unless and until we gain a true view of the creation of all things we cannot hope to gain that fullness of eternal reward which otherwise would be ours. The creation is the first of the three pillars of eternity – the Creation, the Fall, and the Atonement. The creation of all things, the fall of Adam in the Garden of Eden, and the Atonement of Jesus Christ in Gethsemane and on the Cross at Calvary are the three most important events that ever have or ever will occur on Earth. These events intertwine to form the very fiber of our being – who we are; why we’re here, for what purpose we were created, and where we are going, if anywhere, beyond earth life. If the atonement of Jesus Christ, which can alleviate the effects of both sin and death, is the central event to one’s salvation, then is not this event made possible only by the fall, and the fall made possible by the creation? How, why, and by whom were we created are questions that must surely stir in the heart of almost every individual at some point during their lifetime.
In the beginning, God created the heavens and earth. This is one of the most famous statements in the Bible, and it starts the account of God’s creation. Genesis 1:1 through 2:3 involved the first seven days in history:
- The first day, the creation of the heavens and the Earth, and light (Genesis 1:1-5 ).
- The second day, the creation of a “firmament” or expanse, separating the waters (Genesis 1:6-8 ).
- The third day, the creation of dry earth and plant life (Genesis 1:9-13 ).
- The fourth day, the creation of the Sun, the moon, and the stars, to mark the seasons (Genesis 1:14-19 ).
- The fifth day, the creation of the creatures of the sea and the fowl of the air (Genesis 1:20-23 ).
- The sixth day, the creation of the animals of the land, and the creation of Man (Genesis 1:24-31 ).
- The seventh day, on which God rested from his task of creating (Genesis 2:1-3 ).
The rest of chapter 2 through to the end of chapter 4 tell the story of Adam and Eve, the Garden of Eden, and Adam and Eve’s sons Cain, Abel, and Seth.
The fall of mankind into sin began when the serpent questioned one of God’s commands, namely not to eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, and convinced Eve to eat the fruit, followed by Adam. The result of disobeying this command resulted in the driving away of Adam and Eve from the Garden to live a life of subsistence farming, and eventually dying. Eve was additionally cursed with painful childbearing, and to be subservient to Adam.
As descendants of Adam and Eve, all people inherit the effects of the Fall. In our fallen state, we are subject to opposition and temptation. The only way for us to be saved is for someone else to rescue us. We need someone who can satisfy the demands of justice—standing in our place to assume the burden of the Fall and to pay the price for our sins. Jesus Christ has always been the only one capable of making such a sacrifice.
Why were we created? God made man of flesh and blood so that we could learn eternal lessons through a life of trials and troubles on earth. The war in Heaven began the battle for our eternal salvation. We came to earth as a test to see if we would follow God, blessed with an inherent compass to guide us. Thus, the necessity for opposition in all things (hot and cold, rich and poor, good and evil). Satan was cast down from Heaven along with a third of the hosts of Heaven and these demons, though we cannot see them, are continuously tempting us to do evil. this allows them to destroy us unless we repent. However, according to many researchers, portals for these demons to possess our body of flesh and blood (a privilege they forfeited by following Satan in the War in Heaven) may become a reality when we commit certain sins.
We have been deceived about much of history, however the secret societies that have long influenced our world, would prefer nothing more than for us to believe we are not divine creations of a loving father in heaven with a divine purpose, rather that we are creatures of chance, without purpose and without consequences for our actions. They refuse to be governed by the very God that created them and seek, with the very liberties granted also by our kind, wise and loving Father, to follow the adversary and work against the plan of God.
