A simple question with a complex answer. It was revealed that the Creation Period challenge was placed at the onset. There was no ‘Time’ in this period:
The angels were witnesses to the Creation of the seen Universe, which indicates they were created long before that great event. In the spiritual there is no “Time”. For Time is measured by the rotation of the Earth on its axis and movement about the Sun. We gather this when God ‘asked’ Job, “Where were you when I laid the Earth’s foundation … and all the angels shouted for joy?” Job 38:4,7. Reason? The seen was Created from the unseen.
Wow! The POWER of God’s Word! God’s Word is infallible, Amen. God’s Word established ALL! Amen.
We have discussed The Challenge to God’s Word with Eve in the Garden.
“Wherefore, as by one Man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:”
Romans 5:12 KJV
“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (The Word)
Romans 6:23 KJV
The important thing, however, isn’t when God created the angels—but why He created them. The Bible tells us that the angels were created for one reason: to do God’s will. To put it another way, they were created to be God’s instruments or agents to carry out His work. (In fact, the word “angel” actually means “messenger” or “agent”.) The Bible says, “Praise the Lord, you his angels, you mighty ones who do his bidding, who obey his word” (Psalm 103:20).
Just as the angels are largely unseen by us, so also is their work. I am convinced that when we get to heaven we will be amazed when we discover all the things God did through His angels—including their protection over us in times of danger. (This includes not only physical danger, but moral and spiritual danger, as well.) The Bible says, “For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways” (Psalm 91:11).
Lucifer, another name for Satan, was originally an angel whose purpose was to be involved in the worship of God. We do not know for sure, but the case can be made from Ezekiel.
- 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 (timbrels) and sockets (flutes), was in you. On the day that you were created they were prepared.
This is why some people suspect that Lucifer (name means ‘light bearer’) was involved with music and therefore worship before God. But because of Lucifer’s exceeding beauty and greatness, some suspect he became prideful and rebelled against God.
Isaiah 14:12-15, “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. 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.”
I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. John 13:15
The Word became flesh to prove that in the flesh it is possible to obey the Thoughts and Purpose of God. God’s Word as Man, came on the Earth to demonstrate The example, to answer an age old question – Can The Word face all that God’s Creation – Man, faces?
The Word was made flesh: The Bible said, “The Word was made flesh…” The embryo in Mary’s womb was The Word of God – and it took flesh upon itself. The Word of God was conceived by an act of the God-kind of faith and was born on the Earth. Jesus was the Living Word of God – The Word in flesh form!
As was not possible to undo The Word – killing all youth in Bethlehem
In the New Testament, the Massacre of the Innocents is the incident in the nativity narrative of the Gospel of Matthew in which Herod the Great, king of Judea, orders the execution of all male children two years old and under in the vicinity of Bethlehem.
We may have our questions and we search history text. Is The Bible not The Greatest text of His-Story? Yet, we want to see it in a “text book” – Understood. We should ask “who wrote Genesis?” Tradition credits Moses as the author of Genesis, as well as the books of Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and most of Deuteronomy, but modern scholars increasingly see them as a product of the 6th and 5th centuries BC.
The Story of The beginning was placed in and on the spirit of Man. I initially found it unbelievable until it was shared what we discuss above “The Word becomes flesh.”
The Word as huMan spoke with God constantly and taught us to do the same.
