-The Constitution of All Reality (Module 1)
1. The Spacekind/Placekind
2. The Timekind/Periodkind/Seasonkind
3. The Elementalkind
4. The Plantkind
5. The Animalkind
6. The Humankind
7. The Angelkind
For the purpose of recall, we may use the acrostics/acronym/mnemonic/contraction STEP- AHA ( S– for Spacekind; T– for Timekind; E– for Elementalkind; P– for Plantkind; A– for Animalkind; H– for Humankind; & A– for Angelkind ). The 1st 2, being the Spacekind/Placekind and the Timekind/Periodkind/Seasonkind, are somewhat vague
/inconspicuous/not clear, in their order of complexity, relative to each other, but the remaining 5, being the Elementalkind, then the Plantkind, then the Animalkind, then the Humankind and lastly, the Angelkind, are respectively ordered/arranged, in their increasing degree, of complexity. Meaning, the Elementalkind is simpler than the Plantkind, which is simpler than the Animalkind, which is simpler than the Humankind, which is simpler than the Angelkind. To express it another way, what we are saying is, that the Angelkind, is a more complex form of being, than the Humankind, which is, a more complex form of being, than the Animalkind, which is, a more complex form of being, than the Plantkind, which is, a more complex form of being, than the Elementalkind. Clearly, all of the createdkinds, were so created, and perfectly ordered/ arranged, by a very perfect/absolute/supreme/faultless Power/Force & Intelligence ( I Corinthians 1:24; Psalm 121:2; 124:8; John 1:3; Colossians 1:16 ), who upholds/ carries and holds together, all things, by the word of His power ( Hebrews 1:3; Colossians 1:17 ).
II. The Realm of the Infinite Order– is the realm/dominion/domain/territory of God or the Godkind. When we speak of God or the Godkind, we are venturing in the domain/area/realm/sphere of Infinitude, meaning, the realm/domain of the Pre- existent Beings. Prior to the creation of all creation ( or creatures ), These Pre- existent Beings/ Persons/Individuals/Selves, belonging to the Godkind, were already, in existence. They, being all Members of the Godkind, have no beginning/commencement and have no terminal point/end. They were & are, just there, in infinity. God has never been, is never, and will never ever be, a single/singular Person God or Godkind ( Genesis 1:26; 11:6-7, 9; Psalm 45:6-7; Hebrews 1:8-9; John 5:17-18; Philippians 2:5-6; I John 5:7-8; Matthew 22:41-45; Mark 12:35-37 ). There are only 3 distinct/different/varied Persons /Individuals/Selves, belonging to the Godkind:
1. The Godkind Father ( God the Father )
2. The Godkind Son ( God the Son )
3. The Godkind Holy Spirit ( God the H.S. )
Let us now have a thorough/detailed discussion, of the Constitution/Contents of All Reality:
I. The Realm of the Finite Created Order– this involves all of the createdkinds:
1. The Spacekind/Placekind– this constitutes/comprises/makes up, and refers to, any &/or all, locations/regions/sites/places, that were ever created, exs. the Heavens ( more particularly/specifically, the 1st, 2nd and 3rd ) & the Earth, Hell & the Lake of fire ( Mark 9:43-48; Revelation 20:14-15 ), Europe, Asia, Philippines, Garden of Eden, Black holes, Outer space, etc..
2. The Timekind/Periodkind/Seasonkind– this constitutes/comprises/makes up, and refers to, any &/or all, of the time reckonings/calculations, that were ever created, exs. ( durations, like ) heart/cardiac/pulse rate, respiratory rate , 24 hours, one year, 3 hours, past, present, future, seedtime, harvest time, today, eternity, infinity, ( occasions, like ) birthday, deathday, etc..
3. The Elementalkind– this constitutes/comprises/makes up, and refers to, any &/or all, of the 112 elements, of the Periodic Table, exs. hydrogen, oxygen, etc., or an interplay/mingling/mixing of any 2 or more of these elements ( For example, if you combine 2 molecules of hydrogen with 1 molecule of oxygen, you’ll produce H2O or water ). The elementalkind also includes the natural forces, or atmospheric conditions, like the wind, rain, fire, etc…Sands, soils & rocks are also examples of created things ( or createdkinds ), belonging to the elementalkind.
4. The Plantkind/Vegetationkind– this was called to life on the 3rd original creation day, in preparation for the bringing up, of a much higher kind of being ( Genesis 1:11-13 ).
5. The Animalkind– All living creatures in the waters, and all fowls of the air ( that thrive on land ), were created on the 5th day of creation ( Genesis 1:20-23 ). All land animals ( or all land creatures, belonging to the animalkind ), were created on the 6th day of creation ( Genesis 1:24-25, 31 ).
6. The Humankind– He was created the last, among God’s original creation, but also came into being, on the 6th day of creation ( Genesis 1:26-27, 31 ). He was created in God’s own image/character ( v. 27 ). Note: There were plurality of the Persons/ Individuals/Selves, belonging to the Godkind, who have agreed/purposed/decreed the act of creation, but only a single Person executed, the very act of creation ( Genesis 1:26-27; John 1:3, 10; Hebrews 1:10; Colossians 1:16 ). The humankind was given stewardship of God’s creation ( v. 28 ), and /or given dominion over the works of God’s hands ( Psalm 8:6 ). Also, God blessed him with the fruits of the ground ( v. 28-29 ). He was made a little lower than the angels, but crowned with glory and honor ( Psalm 8:4-5 ). Presently ( year 2009 ), there are about 6-7 billion persons/individuals/selves, distinct/ different/varied, from each other, belonging to the humankind.
7. The Angelkind– Hebrews 1:14 calls them ministering/attending/serving spirits, sent forth to minister to/attend to/serve, them who are heirs, of Salvation. They don’t have physical/biological bodies ( bodies with flesh, that are tangible/touchable/palpable ), although, they may take on physical bodies, when God appoints them to special tasks ( ex. Genesis 18:1 to 19:16 ). God has not given them the ability to procreate/reproduce /have children, and they neither marry, nor are given in marriage ( Mark 12:25 ). Examples of persons or individuals or selves belonging to the Angelkind are cherubim ( singular is cherub ), Archangels/Chief Angels like Michael, Gabriel & formerly Lucifer ( later, turned “Satan”, which means opponent/enemy, and is also presently called the “Devil”, which means traducer/slanderer/destroyer ).
II. The Realm of the Infinite Order– this involves the realm/territory/dominion of God/the Godkind. Since the Persons/Individuals/Selves belonging to the Godkind, can never be a single/singular Being/Entity, we have to repeatedly point out, that there are only 3 Persons/Individuals/Selves, belonging to this kind ( i.e., God/Godkind ). One of the Persons belonging to the Godkind is infinitely invisible to all of the createdkinds ( John 1:18; I Timothy 6:16; I John 4:12; John 6:46 ), and therefore, cannot be directly accessed or encountered or seen, by all of the createdkinds ( John 14:6; Matthew 18:10; John 14:7-9; Colossians 1:14-15 ), back in the past, now in the present, in the future, forever, and for all eternity, and we know Him as the Godkind Father ( God the Father ). Another Person belonging to the Godkind ( Acts 5:1-4 ) is infinitely symbolic to all of the createdkinds ( Matthew 3:16; Acts 2:1-4; Revelation 1:4; 4:5 ), and therefore, cannot be directly, and personally communicated to, or conversed with, by all of the createdkinds, back in the past, now in the present, in the future, forever, and for all eternity, and we know Him, as the Godkind Holy Spirit ( God the Holy Spirit ). Only the Godkind Son ( God the Son- Psalm 45:6; Hebrews 1:8; Psalm 2:11-12 ), none but the Lord Jesus Christ, who took Manhood/Humanity/Flesh upon Himself ( Philippians 2:7; I John 4:2-3; I Timothy 3:16; John 1:1, 14 ), that He may be able to shed blood ( Hebrews 9:22; Acts 20:28; Revelation 13:8 [ Romans 4:17 ]; Isaiah 53:5; I Peter 2:24 ), to cover or nullify the sins of His people ( Titus 2:13-14; Colossians 1:14; Ephesians 1:7 ), is the Personally & directly encounterable ( Revelation 3:20; Jeremiah 33:3; Isaiah 65:24; Jeremiah 29:12-13 ) and/or accessible ( John 14:6 ) and/or knowable (II Timothy 1:12 ) and/or seeable ( Revelation 1:7-8, 17-18; 22:12-13; Matthew 5:8 ) God or Godkind. Thus, all Theophanies ( Personal appearances of God ), in the entire Holy Scriptures or the Bible, are definitely neither Personal appearances of God the Father, nor Personal appearances of God the Holy Spirit, but rather, all Christophanies ( Personal appearances of Christ- Exodus 3:13-14; John 8:54-58; John 5:46-47; Hebrews 11:24-26; I Corinthians 10:1-10; Luke 24:44; Job 19:25-27 ), for it is the very will/desire/purpose /enthrallment/fascination/absorption/interest of God the Father ( Ephesians 3:11; Philippians 2:9-11; Matthew 3:17; 17:5; Mark 1:11; II Peter 1:17 ), and it is the very witness/confirmation/leading/guidance/direction/directive/dictate/instruction/coaxing/ cajoling/prodding/prompting/urging/provocation/goading/incitement/instigation/ stimulation/encouragement/inspiration of God the Holy Spirit ( John 16:7-15; 14:26; 15:26 ) that Jesus be the direct core/middle/nuclear/central/main/most important figure, of all creatures’ worship, submission and adoration, as well as obedience ( II Corinthians 10:5; Colossians 2:8 ), and service (Matthew 4:10; Colossians 3:23-24; Psalm 2:11-12 ) ,for only “in” Him ( Colossians 2:10 ) and not apart from Him ( John 15:4-7 ), can we do things, and be rendered complete ( Romans 11:36; Psalm 23:1; John 10:11; Colossians 3:11B ). Therefore, the other 2 Members of the Trinity, as well as the entirety of the Christendom or Christianity, are definitely Christocentric ( Christ- centered ).Yes, even Satan and all His cohorts/associates/partners/buddies/followers, would have to agree ( Philippians 2:9-11 ). How about you?
It is going to be more informative, if we are going to reckon/account/consider the very act of creation, as told in the whole chapter of Genesis 1.
Day 1– God created the light, by saying “Let there be light”. Then, He separated light from darkness. The light, He called day, and the darkness, He called night.
Day 2– God created the firmament/expanse/heaven/sky, to partition the waters above and below the firmament.
Day 3– God gathered the waters, below the firmament, and called it seas, and commanded dry land to appear, which He called Earth . God commanded the earth to bring forth grass, herb yielding seed, and fruit tree yielding fruit, after its kind, and whose seed, is in itself.
Day 4– God created the lights in the firmament, to divide the day and the night ( that they may be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years ). Thus, He created the stars, the sun & the moon.
Day 5– God created every living creature in the waters, and fowls in the air, to bring forth abundantly, after their kind.
Day 6– God created all the land animals, after their kind. God also created Man, on the earth.
Day 7– God rested/stopped/ceased creating.
Summarizing therefore, the 6 creation days ( or 6 days of creation ), and making a few correlations, we have the following:
Day 1– God created Light. Light belongs to the Elementalkind.
Day 2– God created the firmament/expanse/sky/heaven. Heaven here, by definition ( “shamayim” or “shameh”, in Hebrew, where the Old Testament was originally written ), is purely confined to the 1st heaven ( or the visible arch where the clouds move ), as well as to the 2nd heaven ( or the higher ether/level/portion/realm, where the celestial/heavenly bodies, like the other planets, revolve/rotate/gyrate/turn/spin/circle ). The 3rd heaven/Paradise ( II Corinthians 12:1-4 )/God’s dwelling place ( I Kings 8:30, 39, 43, 49; II Chronicles 6:21, 30, 33, 39 )/the Father’s house/residence/abode ( John 14:1-6 ), is highly likely/probable/possible to have been created, by the Lord Jesus Christ, prior to the 6 days, of His, original creation. Same thing goes with Hell, and the Lake of Fire. I personally believe, that among all the living creatures/createdkinds, the persons/ individuals/selves, belonging to the Angelkind, were probably also created by the Lord Jesus Christ, prior to the 6 days, of His, original creation. Also, the Manhood/Humanity /Flesh, of the Lord Jesus Christ, must have been created by His Godhood/Deity/Divinity, after the creation of the 3rd heaven or Paradise ( I Corinthians 15:47; John 6:62; 3:13, 31; 6:51, 50 ). The firmament/heaven ( i.e., 1st & 2nd ) belongs to the Elementalkind, as well as to the Spacekind/Placekind.
Day 3– God called the gathering of the waters, below the firmament, seas. He commanded land to appear, and called it earth. Then, He created plants/vegetations on earth. Seas and earth, belong to the Elementalkind. They could also be classified, as Spacekind/Placekind. Plants/Vegetations, belong to the Plantkind.
Day 4– God created the lights, in the heaven ( specifically, in the 2nd heaven ). The stars, are part of them. Also included, are the sun ( being the greater light, to rule the day ), and the moon ( being the lesser light, to rule the night ). Note: For those faiths or beliefs who uphold/support/endorse/advocate the teaching, that the 6 days of creation ( or 6 creation days ), accounted for, in Genesis Chapter 1, are individually 24 hour day(s) ( including the 7th day ), and therefore, based on a mean/average Solar/Sun- dependent day, time- reckoning, it is important to point out, that such consistent 24- hour time reckoning, throughout the year, is purely mathematical/theoretical, and cannot be, physically proven or observed, for it is purely based, on an artificial clock ( that is adjusted, to fit/suit, our artificial, time- reckoning ). How then, can the 7th day of Genesis 2:2, be accurately synchronized/matched, with our 7th day today, or now a days? What is existent in reality, is an apparent/true solar day, where the daily time- reckoning, varies throughout the year. And besides, in the accounting/reckoning, of the 6 days of creation ( or 6 creation days ), in Genesis Chapter 1, days 1-3 cannot be, 24- hour solar/sun days each, for the sun, was created only, come the 4th day of creation ( being the greater light, to rule the day ). So, how can there be a solar day on days 1-3, without the sun? That would be quite absurd/ridiculous/illogical/out of tune!!! The light that was created by the Lord Jesus Christ ( John 1:3; Colossians 1:16; Hebrews 1:10 ) in day 1, is totally different/distinct/dissimilar, from the lights, that He created, come day 4. Thus, although sunlight, came into existence by day 4, the plants/vegetations ( on earth ), which came into being by day 3, were already capable of photosynthesis ( independent of the sun ), because of the light, that Jesus made/created, in day 1. When the LORD Jesus Christ, would have commanded Moses, & the Israelites ( Hebrews 11:24-26; I Corinthians 10:1-10; John 5:46-47 ) to have the Sabbath day strictly observed ( Exodus 20:8-11; 31:16; 35:3; Leviticus 23:3; Deuteronomy 5:12-15 ), and the violators thereof, put to death and/or stoned ( back in the Old Testament times- Exodus 31:14-15; 35:2; Numbers 15:32-36 ), the Pharisees & Scribes, and the ruler of the synagogue, and the Jews, come the New Testament times, got terribly exasperated and infuriated/enraged, by the many works that Jesus did, during the Sabbath days ( Matthew 12:1-8, 10-15; Mark 2:23 to 3:6; Luke 6:1-11; 13:10-17; 14:1-6; John 5:1-18; 7:15-25; 9:1-38 ). When they could not reconcile the issue that a Sabbath- breaker ( John 5:18 ) like Jesus, can be doing the works of God ( John 9:16A, 24B ), like healing a withered/shrunken hand, healing a deformed/bent body that is bowed down for 18 years, healing an edematous man ( or one with a dropsy, which could be suffering from kidney failure ), healing an impotent man who cannot afford to rise up and walk, for 38 years & making to see a congenitally ( from birth ) blind man, Jesus had to plainly tell them, that doing good on the Sabbath days ( like all the healings He performed ), is just alright or okey, and appropriate. And besides, He also had to tell them, that He is Lord, even of the Sabbath/Sabbath day ( Luke 6:5; Mark 2:28; Matthew 12:8 ). Therefore, the “Good” Lord Jesus, is definitely over, and above all ( That goes true for all createdkinds, including the days, the times and the seasons ). Otherwise, there is no point in calling, or addressing Him, as Lord, of all ( Philippians 2:9-11; Acts 10:36 ). True enough, everyone and everything, would have to submit or yield, to the Lordship of Jesus. Moreover, the Sabbath day/Seventh day/Day of rest/Sabbath ( Matthew 11:28 ), as well as the entire law ( for that matter ), can only be fulfilled and realized, “in” the Lord Jesus Christ ( Romans 10:3-4 ). Apart from Jesus ( John 15:4-7 ), no man shall be justified/rendered guiltless, by the works of the law, for not only is Christ, the end/fulfillment of the law, for righteousness, to everyone that believeth, but that also, if righteousness come by the law ( or through, fulfilling the law ), then, Christ is dead ( or has died ), in vain ( Galatians 2:21 ), and we are not saved, by grace ( Ephesians 2:8-9 ). Those who make the day(s), or the seasons, their Master/Lord, can never be, servants of Christ ( Ephesians 5:23 ). The lights which were created in the 2nd heaven ( or the realm, where the celestial/heavenly bodies revolve ), come day 4, belong to the Elementalkind. Since we can access the moon, and stay there, as well, it can also be classified as Spacekind/ Placekind.
Day 5– God ( Jesus, to be specific & certain ) commanded the waters, to bring forth living creatures, after their kind. Waters here, are not just confined to the seas, but to all bodies of water ( like the ponds, lakes, falls, rivers, springs, etc… ). Living creatures in the waters, could be those, belonging to the Animalkind, as well as those, belonging to the Plantkind ( like seaweeds and/or algae, etc… ). Bodies of water could be classified as Elementalkind, as well as Spacekind/Placekind. Jesus ( John 1:3, 10; Colossians 1:16; Psalm 121:2; 124:8; Hebrews 1:10; Acts 17:25 ), also created, the fowls of the air, which belong, to the Animalkind.
Day 6– The LORD ( Yahweh/Yehowah/Jehovah ) Jesus, created the living creatures on earth, after their kind. Since most ( or almost all ) of the creatures or createdkinds, belonging to the Plantkind/Vegetationkind, were created by the “Good” Lord ( Adonay/ Kurios ) Jesus, on day 3, all the living creatures which He created on earth, come day 6, are purely those, belonging to the Animalkind ( except, for Adam & Eve– who belong to the Humankind ). Please, take a good look on day 6. It is on this day, that all the land animals ( or all land creatures, belonging to the Animalkind ), were created, by the “Good” LORD Jesus. Afterwards, still on the same day, He then created, Adam & Eve. This couple, belongs to the Humankind.
Let us now have a head on collision, with the theory ( or should I say, fable/tale, more appropriately ) of evolution. This concept/idea, explains, that cumulative/summational changes, in the characteristics of living organisms, or populations of organisms, from generation to generation, result in the development of new types of organism, over long periods of time. For example, an organism belonging to the Animalkind can evolve/develop/transform/change/convert into an organism/being, belonging to the Humankind, or, that both Animalkind & Humankind, descended/ originated, from a common/the same, ancestor. Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace, proposed to explain their fable/tale, by their theory of natural selection, where they elucidate/expound /explain, that only those specie/class/type/kind of organisms, best adapted to a particular environment, will survive and reproduce. If we are going to play along, with Wallace’s & Darwin’s theory, of natural selection ( or the so- called, survival of the fittest ), we are going to see, many real- life, experiences and scenarios, inconsistent/opposed/ incompatible/mismatched/irreconcilable, with such, theoretical claims. You don’t have to be an expert, to have that proven. We get to see lots of polio patients, coping better with life, than many healthy ones. We get to see on the streets, many blind men and women, and those with other physical defects, struggling hard, and coping, with the rigors/hardships/adversities/difficulties of life, when many would have no physical defects at all, yet we’ll get to hear, committing suicide. We get to see some limbless ( phocomelia and amelia ) people, reaching up to old age, when many young ones, with complete limbs/extremities, would get to die young. We get to see lots of insane people, in mental institutions, dying of old age, when sane/rational/lucid ones, would get on to die young. I got to hear, and watch on cable television, a Pastor, whom, as a child, was suffering, from cerebral palsy ( a form of psycho-motor [ mind & movement ] disability, caused by brain damage ). As a child, he tried several times to commit suicide. When he later committed his life to Jesus, everything changed. His outlook in life, changed as well. Though he was having speech impediments, he became a Pastor. When others said, that no woman would get to like him, somebody fell in love with him, and married him, and they had several children, all healthy ones. The scene/milieu/spectacle, goes on and on, and may be, inexhaustible. Darwin and Russel, are absurdly, mistaken. True enough, the “Good” Lord Jesus determines, who survives, and who does not, not situations, in life. Even the unfit, He can make, fit well. The whole concept/idea and fable/tale of evolution, advocated by Darwin, denies the existence of an omnipotent/all- powerful/all- forceful/all- dynamic and omniscient/all- wise/pansophical, Being/Person/Individual/Self ( I Corinthians 1:24 ). When Genesis 1:1, would have summarized it all, the mind/ psyche/intellect of Darwin, and all his mental prowess/expertise/proficiency, had to evolve, one kind of being, lower than the Humankind. So sad to consider, many modern people of today, would have to think, the primitive, and obsolete/archaic way. All the 7 items belonging to the createdkinds, I previously mentioned, had to be remembered well. Again, the acrostics/acronym/mnemonic/contraction is, STEP- AHA. If you remembered well, what the 7 letters, stand for, you will never take part, with Darwin’s errors. Except for the 1st 3, the remaining 3 items ( excluding the 4th one ), have their own/respective genes ( being the structural &/or functional unit, of a living organisms inheritance/ hereditary traits ). Since the Plantkind have a different genetic material and/or make up, than the Animalkind, and the Animalkind have a different genetic material and/or make up, than the Humankind, the Plantkind can & will, neither ever be Animalkind nor transform to such, and the Animalkind can & will, neither ever be Humankind nor transform to such. Darwin has to explain, his fable/tale of evolution, by taking slow and gradual change, of specie transformation/evolution, over thousands to millions of years, so as to make sure, no Humankind, will get to ever observe, for our life span today, is just over, a century. So much for Darwin! His own fable/tale, have led to his own, undoing!!! For most of his adherents, this is what we say, “Have those hurts/aches and resentments/bitternes removed, and surrender your all, to Jesus!!! And, He will enter into your life, and make you, whole!” Going back to Adam & Eve, whom the “Good” Lord Jesus Christ, created last (in His original creation), relative/comparative to all other createdkinds, we can now deduce/construe/see, clearly manifest/apparent/evident/visible/ obvious/marked/noticeable, reality. We can logically/rationally/sensibly declare, that the 1st couple, is man & woman. That’s how they were designed/intended, by the Lord, Jesus Christ. They were and are, just like, a lock and key configuration, that fits each other well. Tampering/altering, how they were designed, distorts/disfigures/deforms, the lock and key configuration. A man, should neither be paired to another man, nor should a woman, be paired to another woman. Homosexuality and/or lesbianism, are authentic/genuine/real, confusion/disorder. Such practices/behaviors, should neither be justified/vindicated /validated/excused, by genetic predisposition, nor, environmental exposure. Both factors are nullified, or brought to naught ( nought ), when a life, is totally surrendered/yielded, to the Lord Jesus ( Jeremiah 33:3; Romans 8:28; Philippians 1:6; 2:13; Isaiah 41:10; II Corinthians 5:14-15, 17; Galatians 2:20; II Timothy 1:12; Ephesians 3:20; I Peter 5:7; II Corinthians 10:5; Philippians 3:21; Isaiah 65:24; Numbers 14:28; Philippians 4:13, etc… ).
In one of our bible studies ( every week ), where we get to minister to about a hundred children or so ( ages 3 yrs old to roughly about their youth ), we are glad, we can impress/ emphasize, at the very least, the Name of the Lord Jesus, in the thoughts and mouths of them all. If we get to say, “Let’s all shout, Jesus, I love You!”, our little crowd, would shout, “Jesus, I love You!!!”; If we get to say, “Let’s all say, thank You Jesus!”, our little crowd, would say in unison/one accord, “Thank You, Jesus!!!”. Whatever we teach them to say or shout, they would do. When we started with the story of creation, as told in the whole chapter of Genesis 1, we taught the kids, that it was Jesus, who created all things. They would not question at all! They would just accept, what we teach, as fact(s). When we would ask, “Who created all things?”, they would all just answer back, “Jesus!!!”. There were no struggles at all, with what we teach, or tell them. In fact, impressing things in their minds, are quite effortless. They would simply accept bible lessons, as true informations. Absolutely, no struggles at all! That’s how kids are!! They just have to be taught, what is right. Adults, are not that way! Even if you get to teach them what is right, many would not outrightly accept. Struggles or more efforts, are needed and required, just to drive home, certain points or lessons. How about you? Do you accept information, when they are true ? Or, do you outrightly refuse to accept or object, when you’re given facts/informations, contrary to what you know? Since the Bible is our manual or guide- book for life, that’s where we should base, what is right and wrong, in all things pertaining to life. For our purpose for this Module, before I close, I think, I would be able to sit back, and relax ( for the time being ), if I can drive home the whole point or lesson ( for me ) of discussing the entire Chapter 1 of Genesis. Which is: That the LORD Jesus Christ is the Creator of all things. – Genesis 1:26; John 1:3, 10; Colossians 1:16; Hebrews 1:10; The children in our little crowd, don’t have problems with that! How about you? Are you familiar with the so- called, “The Apostles’ Creed”? There’s a part there that says, “I believe in God the Father, Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth.”
There’s a Christian song that was derived from Revelation 4:11. Quoting the verse, it says, “Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for Thou hast created all things, and for Thy pleasure, they are and were, created.” Singing the song now, “Thou art worthy, Thou art worthy, Thou art worthy, oh Lord. Thou art worthy, to receive glory, and honor and power. For Thou hast created, hast all things created. For Thou hast, created all things. And for Thy pleasure, they are created. Thou art worthy, oh Lord.”
We have just finished, roughly, about half, of Module I, today. Next time, we are going to continue, with this Module again, entitled, The Constitution/Contents of All Reality.
The inexhaustible grace/favor and blessings, of the Almighty, “Good” Lord God the Son, Jesus the Christ, Incarnate, Perfect Man and All in all, be upon us all, as we get to commit/devote, and subject/submit, as well as surrender/totally yield, our all, to Him.
Closing Prayer: Dear Lord Jesus, we acknowledge today, that You are, our Creator. It is You, who have made us, and we are the sheep, of Your pasture. Indeed, You deserve to receive, all glory and honor and power, for You have created, all things. And for Your pleasure, You have created all things. That’s what Revelation 4:11 and Colossians 1:16 declare. True enough, we are rightly, and appropriately, all for Jesus. We are rightly and appropriately, all for You. All of creation, whether they get to agree or not, are rightly and appropriately, all for You. Thank You, very much, for having made/created us. We are going to serve You, and lovingly obey You, all the days of our lives. So, help us, Lord Jesus. All this we ask, in Your most majestic, powerful, holy Name! Amen
