The Pre-Creation Conference, Part 4, Light will replace darkness.

Many theologians and other people regard the ‘fall’ of man in Genesis 3 as the most tragic event in history.  It is there that man moved from the light of God’s presence to the darkness of Satan’s kingdom.  

History revolves around Genesis 3

We believe that the whole of the Bible and the whole of human history revolves around Genesis 3.  Why? 

  • The Godhead decided before creation that Jesus would be the Lamb of God.  Why would He be the Sacrificial Lamb if nothing happened?  They foresaw the event that would impact humanity greatly.  
  • The fact that the Godhead made those decisions before creation is a demonstration of their omniscience.  They are never surprised by anything.  Nothing ever happens unexpectedly to them.  Even the events of our time are no surprise to them.  
  • As mentioned, nowhere does the Bible give a hint that the creation of the physical universe was discussed  before creation.  God’s ‘problem’ was with man.  Everything the Godhead discussed had to do with man.  
  • In the Garden of Eden, Satan deceived Adam to disobey God.  This had some effects, which the Godhead provided for in Scripture.  Man, bound to darkness, under the rulership of Satan, will be redeemed by the Son of God.  
  • Therefore, God’s major promise in Genesis 3:15, 

‘…I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; He will crush your head, and you will strike His heel.’ 

  • It is a precious, amazing promise: somebody, born of a woman, will crush the head of

 ‘that ancient serpent, the devil or Satan.’  Revelation 12:9   

  • Scripture unveils how the promise of Genesis 3:15 has been fulfilled and is being fulfilled as more people come to Christ.  Finally, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah will finish off the kingdom of darkness, and the Kingdom of Light will be established permanently on the new earth.  (Revealed in Revelation)  

Genesis 3:15 makes sense

  • The ‘fall’ of man, as it is called, makes perfect sense.  No man, with a free will, can choose if there is only one choice available.  So God gave man the opportunity to choose between two candidates (not three choices, because that would just complicate matters).  It was only between the King of light and the ruler of darkness. 
  • God knew man’s choice to obey the ‘serpent’ would plunge them into spiritual darkness and that would call for a Redeemer/Saviour.  It would be Jesus.  
  • That makes sense in the light of the Kingdom.  All people are born in darkness in the devil’s kingdom.  Since the Light, Jesus, arrived, all people can decide whether they want to take hold of that ‘lifeline’ or not.  There is no force from God’s side.  The choice is voluntary.  
  • What does God achieve with this ‘arrangement?’  He makes sure that nobody who is not interested in Him, is forced to be part of His Kingdom.  It has to be by free will.  Nothing else will suffice – no domination.  God will never force His will on people.  
  • With this strategy God accomplished something very important.  Because salvation (to be saved out of the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of light) by the blood of the Lamb would be by grace and mercy, nobody is excluded.  Nobody!  People can rant and rave against God about hell.  It is a waste of time, because all can come to God through Jesus.  Nobody is excluded.  People who refuse to enter the Kingdom are themselves responsible for their final eternal destination, hell.    

Conclusion

Although God did not pre-programme Adam to disobey, it happened.  The Godhead prepared for it.  Genesis 3:15 is the verse that ties the Bible message into one coherent practical unit.

As you can see in the photo, there are two of us. We live and work together 24/7, studying and enjoying our grandchildren. Our passion is to know and understand what will happen after death. Is there a way to provide for and invest in that?

    For most of my Christian life I struggled with the meaning of certain words used in scripture. Especially when used metaphoricaly to describe an invisible/spiritual concept. Where a literal phenomena ‘acts’ as a doorway to reveal a spiritual concept behind the literal concept that leads to understanding.
    Such words leave much to the imagination, which leaves the interpretation of that word wide open.
    Especially when connotations of an ’emotional’ response to the word is required to fully illuminate the meaning of the specific word in question.
    That is to say, the emotional response to a ‘word’ is what opens up its true meaning.
    Two such words are used to compete with each other and used in your article are “Light and Darkness”
    This play on words becomes a magnetic force that draws the intellect into a deep conversation with other spirit beings residing within, to extrapolate the full meaning and consequential principals and interplay between the two poles proposed by the words in question.
    For many years I could not wrap my mind around what exactly is the spiritual meaning of ‘light’ , yes we see beter with light in the natural and we feel the warmth it brings to our skin, but spiritually, exactly, what is light?
    The intention of this writing is not to discuss what is ‘light’, but to highlight the confusion and misunderstanding that mirrors and types present if not clearly addressed, especially when attending to the minds of young imature initiates, with respect to the scriptures presented to us through the Bible.

    1. Thank you very much for your comment, Patrick. We appreciate your opinion. You say you don’t necessarily want to discuss the meaning of light and we respect it and will refrain. If you are interested please see the blog, Light before the Sun. Regards and blessings

      1. With reguards to light, yes I love the concept of light, I meant to say “I’m using opposites such as light and darkness to discuss the principals of a concept by pitting two opposites against each other, like, good and evil, truth and lie, hot and cold, life and death etc.

      2. Gerhard I am discerning an intellectual breakthrough in your writing style. Your word choice and continuity are expanding the barriers of your readers imaginatation.
        Light before the Sun? Absolutely 🙂

        Now, speaking literally, of light. I love the science that Quantum Phisics has brought the table. The thought of the existance of Photons and their relationship to Man’s will.. has my head spinning with possibilities. Oh and it is an integral part of EMF waves, spoken of as “the field”. That just blows me away. Makes me so exited to be a Son of God. What’s next Gerhard?
