THE HOLY BIBLE, GENESIS TO REVELATION, COVER TO COVER, Pt, 2

Psalms 119: 18

Open thou mine eyes,
that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.

One of the “Wondrous Things” of the first blog was the comparison of this heaven an earth and the new one God will create when eternity starts and God will dwell with us. Another one of the “Wondrous Things” was finding who was there when God created this heaven and earth, particularity the Sons of God of Job 38:7. When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy? A third Wondrous Thing is what was God beginning to do with this literal, visible, and physical, creation of heaven and earth, is doing in six literal 24 hour days. Creating all our five senses that we can enjoy , including man as well. Giving that man, Adam, dominion over everything making him a King, over what Matthew calls “The Kingdom of Heaven”.

THE KINGDOM OF GOD

The KOG is a Spiritual kingdom unseen by the naked eye or through the Hubble Telescope, which is above the current universe, known in the Bible as the firmament, Gen. 1:6-8. The KOG, the dwelling place of God, is home too many other types of creatures. Whose attributes are very unique compared to our own! Their make up is a bit more superior to ours, in the fact that they can change their appearance from their own to that of us. The men that appeared with the pre-incarnate Christ to Abraham when Sodom and Gomorrah were in for destruction.

GENESIS 18:1-4. And the Lord appeared unto him in the plains of Mamre: and he sat in the tent door in the heat of the day; And he lift up his eyes and looked, and, lo, three men stood by him: and when he saw them, he ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed himself toward the ground, And said, My Lord, if now I have found favour in thy sight, pass not away, I pray thee, from thy servant:

GEN. 18:16, 22. And the men rose up from thence, and looked toward Sodom: and Abraham went with them to bring them on the way. And the men turned their faces from thence, and went toward Sodom: but Abraham stood yet before the Lord.

Notice in the above passages that these are called men who came with the Lord. Later in the story we shall learn that these men were much more than men. They were angels who changed themselves to appear as men, just as the Lord had done.

GEN. 19:1, 5, And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom: and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground; And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them.

The men of Sodom saw them as men, but Lot knew that they were more than just men and knew what the men of Sodom wanted to do with them, to the point that Lot offered his daughters unto them.

GEN. 19:7-8, And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly. Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as is good in your eyes: only unto these men do nothing; for therefore came they under the shadow of my roof.

These Angels were righteous, appearing as men doing the will of God. There are, of course Fallen Angels, who do things not of the will of the Lord. Both types of Angels, are referred to as “Sons of God” in Job 1:6, 2:1, and 38:7.

GENESIS 6:1-4, And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. There were giants (the Nephilim) in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.

These sons of God were not doing the will of God when taking the daughters of men for their wives and having children that became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. The apostle Jude in his book says Jude 1:6, And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. Notice that Moses calls them “sons of God” while Jude refers to them as “Angels”.

Question? Were these “Sons of God”, in Jude, the same as the ones that shouted for joy when at the creation of the heaven and earth, Job 38:7? Or, the ones that came to present themselves before the Lord, Job 1:6, 2:1? I guess it depends on the time line of events, which came first, Job 1:6, 38:7, or Genesis 6:1-4! Obviously the Job passages came first! The passages in Job were speaking of the group called “sons of God” who were present at the creation of the heaven and earth, job 38:7. The other Job passages, Job 1:6, 2:1, came after the heaven and earth were already created.

The Apostle John

The Apostle John in the gospel he wrote introduces another group as the “sons of God”, John 1:11-12. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: This means that the person, who receives Jesus, believes on his name, according to apostle Paul is made a new creature, 2 Cor. 5:17, Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. AS John would put it John 1:13, Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. John would crouch it with a new term of being “Born Again”, John 3:3, quoting Jesus, “Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” Jesus further explains to Nicodemus John 3:5-7, “Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a sh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. Therefore, there it is from the Almighty Lord Jesus himself,

“Ye must be born again.”

When anyone makes the decision to be “Born Again” things change for sure! Once a citizen of The Kingdom of Heaven, a citizen of earth, your citizenship is no longer here on earth. You live here now! However, Paul writes to the Philippians and says, Phil. 3:20-21. For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself. Like the theme song from The Jeffersons, “Well we’re movin on up,  To the east side.  To a deluxe apartment in the sky.” 

Those who are “Born Again”, although. living here in the “Kingdom of Heaven”, are actually a citizen of the “Kingdom of God”! One day this will be a realized fact when we are caught up to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord, 1 Th. 4:17. What a very “Wondrous Thing”, the catching away of the saints, the Body of Christ, the Church, the Bride of Christ, and yes, the Sons of God!!!

That’s right, “Sons of God”. Those who are Born Again by the Spirit of God become “Sons of God”, John 1:12. Now think about it, the Scripture says, When Satan fell and was cast to the earth that His angels fell with him, REV. 12:9, And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. Angels we have learned are in fact “Sons of God”, and it makes you wonder, if the creation of saints made by believing the Gospel now days, in the Age of Grace, in fact are to replace “sons of God” who fell with Satan, when he fell??? Just a thought. While your thinking, read the blog about the Rapture of the Church. This event may happen on the day of Pentecost next year, May 31, 2020!

Creatures of the Kingdom of God

The Creatures that God created that dwell in his kingdom, the Kingdom of God, are these, Cherubim, Seraphim, and Angels. The greatest of the Cherubim is Lucifer, known as son of the Morning, Isa. 14:12, the anointed Cherub the covereth the Throne, Ezek. 28:14-15, “Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.”


The Holy Bible, Genesis to Revelation, Cover to Cover,

Psalms 119:18.

Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.

INTRODUCTION

Genesis 1:1 “In the beginning”, beginning of What? It certainly isn’t the beginning of God, God has no beginning nor ending, he is Eternal, Unchangeable, Omnipotent, Omnipresent, Omniscient, Ps. 90:2, Mal.3:6, Jere. 32:27, Ps. 139:7-10, 2 Chronicles 16:9, Respectively.

Revelation 1:8

“I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.” These are the Holy Attributes of the Almighty God! Therefore, what is this the Beginning of?

THE GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD!!!

Now we get to behold a few of those “Wondrous Things” as we start to look into the creation of God.

Genensis 1:1-2

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was 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

Before we get started with God’s creation let us consider what was present before God started his creation process. We have already established God was already present when talking about his attributes.

There are many beginnings of things in the scriptures, 17 verses of different beginnings of things to be exact. (Gen. 1:1, Judges 7:19, Ruth 1:22, 2 Sam.21:9. Ezra 4:6, Prov. 8:22, Jere. 26:1, 27:1, 28:1, 49:34, Lam. 2:19, Ezek. 40:1, Amos 7:1, John 1:1,2, Phil. 4:15, Heb. 1:10.) What is needed to make things clear is to clarify which beginning is being discussed. In our case the beginning is the beginning of the creation of Heaven and Earth, Gen. 1:1, not the throne room of God, nor the Seraphim, Cherubs, and Angels, they were all there when the God created the heaven and earth.

John 1:1-3,

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.”

Job 38:4-10

Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth?
declare, if thou hast understanding.
Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest?
or who hath stretched the line upon it?
Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened?
or who laid the corner stone thereof;
When the morning stars sang together,
and all the sons of God shouted for joy?
Or who shut up the sea with doors,
when it brake forth, as if it had issued out of the womb?
When I made the cloud the garment thereof,
and thick darkness a swaddlingband for it,
And brake up for it my decreed place,
and set bars and doors,

God was speaking to Job asking questions about the creation of the earth, but notice who was also there, When the morning stars sang together,
and all the sons of God shouted for joy?
The Word does not say who or what the Morning Stars are, the scriptures do not say 0r even hint to who they are, but it is interesting who the Sons of God are. (Gen. 6:2, 4, Job 1:6, 2:1, 38:7, John 1:12, Romans 8:14, 19, Phil. 2:15, 1 John 3:1, 2). All of the underlined verses in bold show that the Sons of God are spirit beings and the other verses reveal who become the spirit beings after being born of God.

John 1:11-13

He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

That’s right, We become “Sons of God” and we will watch God, after watching him destroy the univserse including the earth, make a new heaven and earth, where there will be no more sea over the universe as there is now and God will dwell with us in the new Jerusalem,

Rev. 21:1-2

And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

Interesting start about the Creation. This Beginning of heaven and earth is preceded by the Throne Room with a crystal sea, Morning Stars, Sons of God, and other types of creatures in what the apostle Paul called a third heaven 2 Cor. 12:2 existing before God said, “Let there be light” Gen. 1:3. To reveal the merits of this thought is to compare statements from both passages Gen. 1;1-2 and Rev. 21: 1-2. upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters and there was no more sea. We will get back “And the earth was without form, and void”, later. The Sea in Rev 21:1-2 is the same Crystal Sea of Rev. 4:6 and 15:2

Revelation 4:6

And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind.

The Face of the Deep, the Face of the Waters in Gen. 1:1-2 is the same as the Crystal Sea in Revelation by comparing scripture with scripture. Therefore, Job 38:30 will give the light we need to understand is wondrous thing.

Job 38:30

The waters are hid as with a stone,
and the face of the deep is frozen.

The Scripture compared with Scripture makes it easy to understand how these three passages about the “Deep” and “Crystal Sea” are speaking of the same thing. This is important when we continue about the creation of the heaven and earth and the destruction of this heaven and earth and having no more sea. Another verse in Genesis will show what the sea is,

Gen. 1:6-8

And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. 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. And God called the firmament Heaven.

We have already established that God’s Throne Room was in existence with the different creatures, Morning Stars, and Sons of God. Gen.1:1-2 mentions the waters, the frozen deep, where the firmament, our universe was immersed into. An inverted fish bowl would best describe what this would look like. The Firmament/universe would be the fish bowl where the waters, instead of being on the inside were on the outside, surrounding the universe, thus having the sea, the deep, below the throne room and above the Firmament/Universe.. Therefore, when God destroys the heaven/universe, and earth, and there is no more sea, then what is left is the Throne Room of God, with all who was there before including all those born-again of the Church Age, those saints of the Old Testament, and Tribulation! There is one of those wondrous sights to behold close to the end of
