Pamphlet #6206 Genesis KC 3-1
The creation, then, which begins in Genesis 1 vs. 3, is the creation of the earth age which is now, the former having passed away.
In the previous lessons we spent
a great deal of time documenting
and establishing the fact that the beautiful heaven and earth age "that then was",
that which was created in the beginning (Gen 1:1), perished (Gen 1:2).
Our Father destroyed it when He
overthrew Satan at his rebellion
and reduced it to the state of "tohu va bohu", utterly void and desolate.
The physical (Scientific) evidence
of this destruction is overwhelming,
the spiritual (Biblical) evidence is conclusive.
There is no conflict between true science and God's Word.
There never was and there never will be!
This foundational knowledge is essential to the true understanding of the entirety of God's Word.
It is one of the main reasons that
many who claim to be instructors and teachers of the Bible
struggle to explain what should be simple verses and simple passages.
For if you don't understand what
happened in the beginning,
if you start out with a "mental declination" and are off track just 80 km before you begin,
by the time you should have reached your destination of understanding,
you will have passed by the major benchmarks of truth
and be totally "lost" in the land of confusion, which is the state of Babylon.
The creation, then, which begins
in Genesis 1 vs. 3,
is the creation of the earth age which is now, the former having passed away.
Our Father will once again prepare an habitable place for His children, only this time each child will "pass through" this earth age, in a flesh body, entering in from the womb of woman, and born innocent (which means they will have no prior knowledge of what happened in the "world that was", i.e. their "hard disk" or "hard head", whichever you prefer, will be newly formatted and contain no data.)
They can then have an opportunity to make up their own minds as to who they will follow, the "light" or the "darkness".
It is documented in the New Testament, by the apostle Paul, that we should all die, and therefore live, in the flesh (only one time, of course) :
And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
What a fascinating story that is, for their actions caused the flood of Noah.
To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits;
to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
