In the beginning, as the Holy Spirit has lead me to believe it all happened: by john Rhine
God first created us, all our souls, as spirit beings living in celestial bodies millions, maybe even billions of years ago.
Job 38:1 Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said, 2 Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge? 3 Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me. 4 Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding. 5 Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it? 6 Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof; 7 When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy? (Job must have been there, or God wouldn't have said in verse 4 "Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding. ") You and I were there also; We were all created before God created the earth for us to live on.
Then, as described in Genesis 1:1, He created heaven and earth which we celestial beings, at that time,(the age of the dinosaurs) lived on and shared with those terrestrial beings (animals), dinosaurs and such.
Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
The Bible doesn't tell us how long ago that happened; Fossil records indicate it may have been billions of years ago.
Then as described in Genesis 1:2, God had destroyed that first earth and it became ruin,
because of Lucifer's sin, (Lucifer rebelled against God and lured 1/3
of all us celestial sons of God to join him in that rebellion).
Genesis 1:2 And the earth was(became) without
form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And
the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
as described in Genesis 1:3 to 1:25, God restructured the ruined earth
to again be livable, and restocking it with wild animals
Genesis 1:3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. 4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. 5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day. 6 And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. 7
And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were
under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and
it was so. 8 And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day. 9 And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so. 10 And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good. 11
And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding
seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is
in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. 12 And
the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind,
and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind:
and God saw that it was good. 13 And the evening and the morning were the third day. 14
And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven
to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for
seasons, and for days, and years: 15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. 16
And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day,
and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. 17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, 18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.
19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day. 20 And
God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature
that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open
firmament of heaven. 21 And
God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which
the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged
fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. 22
And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill
the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. 23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day Genesis 1:24 And
God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind,
cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and
it was so. 25
And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle
after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after
his kind: and God saw that it was good.
(Please note: These animals were made before human terrestrial bodies were created for mankind.)
Then as described in Genesis 1:26 to 2:2, God created terrestrial bodies for mankind ('Adam), both male and female He created, the races, to live in and reproduce and fill the earth with like kind.
Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man(plural, mankind) in our image, after our likeness: and let them(plural)
have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air,
and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping
thing that creepeth upon the earth. 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.(plural, mankind, both created)
Genesis 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. 28
And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and
multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion
over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every
living thing that moveth upon the earth. 29 And
God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is
upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the
fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. 30
And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air,
and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life,
I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so. 31 And
God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good.
And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
Then God took a break for about 1000 years while sixth day man went out to replenish the earth as directed.
Genesis 2:1 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. 2
And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and
he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. 3 And
God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he
had rested from all his work which God created and made. 4
These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when
they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the
heavens, 5 And
every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of
the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain
upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground. 6 But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.
'Adam, without the article, denotes man or mankind in general (Genesis 1:26; 2:5; 5:1, followed by plural pronoun). With the article, it denotes the man, Adam, though rendered "man" in Genesis 1:27; 2:7 (twice) 8,15,16,19 (margin), 22 (twice); 3:12,22,24; 5:1; 6:1 (rendered "men"), 2,3,4. After this, the Hebrew 'Adam = man or men, is used of the descendants of Adam. Hence, Christ is called "the son of Adam", not a son of Enosh.
With the particle ('eth) in addition to the article it is very emphatic, and means self, very, this same, this very individual. See Genesis 2:7 (first occurrence)
Then God decided that He wanted to provide a way for mankind, who
had rebelled with Lucifer in the first earth age, to salvage their
souls. To do that He would come to earth Himself as His own only begotten son,
living with mankind for a short time in a terrestrial body, proving He
could live with out sinning; Then sacrificing His human life, allowing His
blood to be a covering for all of mankind's, who will accept His offer to
change their hearts from being sinful to what He would have children of
His be. He would therefore; through this act redeem their souls, offering them eternal life as their reward!
then chose to place a special couple of humans on earth, who were to
remain of perfect pedigree for a designed period of time, when His son
would be born to a virgin descendant of such couple.
As described in Genesis 2:7 to 25, God then formed a individual man ('eth 'Adam),
placing him in in a terrestrial body, like other humans
have, and from his body God made a wife (Eve) for this individual
man ('eth 'Adam), and God also formed domestic (farm animals) and planted a garden for them('eth 'Adam and his wife Eve) to stay and live in. He did not tell this couple to go forth and replenish the earth.(Please note: These animals were made after 'eth 'Adam was formed and placed in his terrestrial body.) Genesis 2:7 And the LORD God formed man (this one individual man) of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. 8 And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed
(this one man)Genesis 2:18 And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man('eth 'Adam,
this one man) should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him. 21 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, ('eth 'Adam, this one man}, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; 22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, (this one man) made he a woman, (this one woman) and brought her unto the man. (this one man) 23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my (this one man's) flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. 24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. 25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.Of course they were not ashamed; Satan had not seduced Eve as yet. But, that is another study.

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.
