Geneses (Plural), Chapter Six - Subchapter Ten, In His Image (an excerpt)  October 20, 2014  (12.02.12)

Written by Larry M. Jaynes:

(excerpt from pages 67-91)

“. . . I ask you to consider a few questions and thoughts with me about the theory of evolution and God’s truths of creation. When did man first need atonement or did he ever need atonement? When he lived in the perfection of Eden? When he walked in serenity with his Creator? Or did man need atonement before Paradise? When did man sin? When he supposedly was only a single cell and could have fit into a test tube? Or did man need atonement when he fell from a branch as he was jumping from tree to tree, or when he first moved into a cave, bypassing Paradise altogether, or when he broke free from the Stone Age, or the Bronze Age, or the Iron Age, or the Dark Age, or the Age of Enlightenment, or the Agriculture and Mechanical Age, or the Technology Age, or the Space Age, or the Cell Phone Age, or the Tweedledee Age, or the Age of Whatever is Next? Atonement affords a man or a woman justification and life ― eternal (Romans 5:1ff). In the theory of evolution itself, there is no place for Paradise or atonement or redemption and eternal life at any time or in any place or in any Age before or after Paradise.

The theory of the evolutionists has no answers to or concerns about these questions because their theory has no place for a past Paradise, for the theory dictates that man has yet to arrive (or ascend up enough ― yet) to make his own perfect paradise, though he is almost there, as his hopes and dreams promise. Evolution itself has no place for God, no place for Christ, and no place for the true believer. In a man’s dreamworld utopia, armed with the theory of evolution, and without knowing God as his Heavenly Father and the atoning sacrifice and redeeming blood offered by the Savior, Christ Jesus - he is wanting, wanting because truth is missing from his heart’s foundation - this is his missing link into a true reality check of life.

Men say, emboldened by and fed on a constant diet of evolution, “We have arrived enough to devise our thoughts and ability to change not only our world and destiny (and they have been boasting this since recorded history), but also the world and destiny for all humanity. Mother Earth may have a global warming temperature, but modern man believes he can fix her hopefully before she gets any sicker.”
 
God pronounced that the ground is cursed (Genesis 3:17, Romans 8:22), not sick, and man himself is not ascending to a higher life because he is dead in trespasses and in sin (Ephesians 2:1, 5, Colossians 2:13), and he is devolving as is evident by the lesser lifespans since the flood of Noah’s day. Man needs the atonement by a Savior since his fall from the grace of Paradise in order to advance into the greater life, the spiritual ― the eternal. Spiritual life is and has always been antecedent to physical life because “the body without the spirit is dead {in trespasses and sins and is separate from the life of God}” (James 2:26), which in our next subchapter, the knowledge of A Three Part Being becomes important in our study of spiritual death and spiritual life.

Men of theory so often say, “Not so fast, not so true; how dare anyone tell me that I came from the dust of the earth, how foolish they are, how far-fetched when I know I came from something; I began from a single cell through millions of mutations over millions of years.” Yet, where the life in the cell came from he does not know for his theories are silent, it is just one more missing link away from His Origin of life and honestly some men and women could care less about this because it links to God and disconnects man from his theory of evolution.

Human nature is the nature of fallen man, and his fallen career is to evolve back up apart from his Creator as man looks for alternatives for his existence to be somehow and anyhow and in anyway separate from Him ― his Maker; this outward action is not only relatively natural but is expected because his very nature dictates him to be so and to do so.

Proverbs 12:28 enlightens, “In the way of righteousness is life; and in the pathway thereof there is no death {for eternal life is assured},” which is the exact opposite of the ways man devises. Jeremiah 10:23 offers this insight, “O LORD, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps.” Well, if it is not in man to direct his steps, then who or what is directing his steps? If not God and not man himself, then there must be another entity, and there is which we will see in Genesis. If man desires heaven’s help in directing his steps, then what can he do, how can he find the correct way? Well, let us read Proverbs 3:5-6, “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” “Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established” (Proverbs 16:3). Jesus instructed, “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it” (Matthew 7:13-14).

Man, without God in his life, may believe in his heart that through his trials and errors he can find his way through the darkness (which he thinks is light), because he believes he is in an age of enlightenment with technological and scientific advancements. Yet the very moment he discovers God, he becomes flooded with true, pure, heavenly light, and then he can see what is really before him as well as the folly he has been living by and believing that truly was in opposition to God’s Word. And then he can stop bumping into obstacles that were always there and tripping him up. These obstructions were unseen until God turned on His delightful light. Christ is that light - Christ is in you - Christ lives in the hearts of all who will believe! Jesus said to his disciples, those with the light: “Let your light so shine before men” (Matthew 5:16). God says, “I have spread out my hands all the day {opened hands as a friendly gesture, not closed fists} unto a rebellious people, which walketh in a way that was not good, after their own thoughts” (Isaiah 65:2).

Thus, some men devise in their own thoughts, I came out of the oceans; I ascended up into the heights of the forests. I came down from a tree, I came out of a cave, and I went into the inhabitable parts of the world. I came over the mountains; I went out into the valleys and glens. I came over the sea; I am an explorer of new lands, and soon, why I will soon be an explorer of new worlds. I am a conqueror, and I am destined to create a new and better world, and that world will be in my very own image. Yes indeed, a world I am creating without sin, without sickness, and without war, why I am on the verge of conquering death! Who needs your mythical God? I just ask you to believe my hype, my hopes and my dreams, but do not look at my past track record.

Men say (backed up solely by the theories of evolution) me, me, me, I, I, I can do it all without any help from above, just watch me; I will conquer the universe above, and all by myself, as man thinks this is his evolving destiny! However, God says about His beloved man, he already commenced in perfection, he then fell to sin, he fell from Paradise, he fell from grace, he earned a sin nature and his reward has been and still is “death” (Romans 6:23, Hebrews 9:27), and he is in desperate need of a Savior and atonement for his sin in order to advance back up! Men say I already have a best friend; it is my dog (spelled backward from the Creator’s name ― God). God was man’s best friend in the Garden, and He can become ours when God makes the spiritual connection and we answer His call.

Now if evolution is a biblical concept as all too many religious and secular people are putting forth then, I must ask, when was man created in the image of God? When man was a one-celled being floating around in the ocean currents? Was God a one-celled being floating aimlessly? Remember, we were created in His image (Genesis 1:27). Could someone have put God in a test tube and could we, who were “made after the similitude of God” (James 3:9), have been put into a test tube? Malachi 3:6 answers and settles the question, “For I am the LORD, I change not.” Did God change? “God is not a man, that he should lie” (Numbers 23:18); this verse depicts two concepts, God does not lie (Hebrews 6:18), but men lie (Psalms 116:11), and men believe lies (II Thessalonians 2:11), and we are to, “Let God be true, but every man a liar” (Romans 3:4). Come on now, I am not implying that men lie every second of the day, but all men do lie because of his fallen, sin nature (and lying is a manifestation of that nature), “If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us” (I John 1:10), which is what happened to the first parents. (Challenge yourself to see how long you can go without lying and you just may be shocked how short of a time you lasted and you might end up saying, “I have met the enemy and I am he”― Romans 7:17-23. Well, after the challenge is over, by God’s grace you have His permission to start over and try again― Romans 8:1, I John 1:8-10.)

Now, when did God evolve and crawl out of the ocean? When man supposedly crawled out of the sea, was this when man was created in the image of God? Was God ever a tree dweller? When did man fall from grace, when he fell out of the trees, when he got up off all fours and began walking erect? Is this when man was created in the image and similitude of God? Did man climb up into Paradise, is this when he was created in the image of God, or did he just pass on by the Garden of God altogether?

God said of man, “I have created him for my glory” (Isaiah 43:7). You will not find mention of God having created man to evolve into something else, and if He really wanted something else, well then, He could have created something else in the first place for His glory. No other animate or inanimate thing was ever created for His glory. He can make stones praise Him if He so desired (Luke 19:40), He could create a zombie race to worship and love Him unconditionally as nothing is impossible to Him, except, it is impossible for Him to lie (Hebrews 6:18), and thus man in the Garden of Eden was created for His glory. Did God’s glory in man ever change or has man “changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things” (Romans 1:23)? By the way, this verse is God’s clarification and the precise definition of evolution, and the very conception and acceptance of this as a reality changes the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image of man’s making and this “dishonors {according to God Who tells the truth} their own bodies” (Romans 1:24), which dishonor opens the road to more and further denigration of that once perfect body (Romans 1:25-32)!

Not realizing God’s esteemed position of man on His creation as His one and only Masterpiece is the disgrace of fallen man in manifestation, as man is His most perfect work and created that way for His glory. “The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD’S: but the earth hath he given to the children of men” (Psalms 115:16). What trust we actually have been given, we are the children of men, but we are not as evolution suggests the children or offspring or dependents of birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

God told us that there is nothing new under heaven (Ecclesiastes 1:9-11), but we all too often imagine that Darwin came up with the ideas of evolution. Well, no, he did not; it has been around since the fall of man as we shall see in Genesis, the concept just keeps on resurfacing in different disguises and formats. Evolution originally came in two main streams (that have now grown into torrents), one in false secular reasoning which started with Adam and Eve’s textile business formed strictly by an educated guess on how to make themselves righteous through works of the flesh (Galatians 5:16ff), and the other came in false religious reasoning which started with Cain formed strictly by an educated guess on how to make himself righteous through works of the flesh (Romans 8:8, Galatians 2:16). We will see these details in Genesis as we pass straight betwixt the two opposing concepts on our way to the Son and our redemption.

“Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men {of the senses and/or earthly mandates in the guise of academia}, after the rudiments of the world, {worldly intuition that can lead to mental bondage, See Galatians 4:3, 9, Colossians 2:18-23} and not after Christ {who brings spiritual liberty, See Galatians 5:1, I Corinthians 1:17-30}. For in him {in Christ} dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily” (Colossians 2:8-9).

There are limited forms of evolution within the separate species as we have seen and endless evolutions in the works, aptitudes, schemes, and inventions of man. Some early signs of the concepts of evolution can be visited in the depictions and carvings of the hundreds and thousands of gods from the Babylonians, Egyptians, and many other ancient cultures who depict their deities with bodies of men and faces of, yes, you guessed it, of birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things, or with faces of men and bodies of, yes, you guessed it, birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things as though man either came from or is evolving into those forms (this was also a deplorable sin “pourtrayed upon the walls” in the temple at Jerusalem,― Ezekiel 8:10). And again, according to God, when man imagines that these types are his ancestors or are to be his next evolving stage, he dishonors the human body and insults the God Who formed, made, and created man for His glory, while man “changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen” (Romans 1:25).

Not only have people worshiped upwards towards heavenly bodies as we saw, but they at times can get so micro-focused in the study of one thing or another from the creation of this earth that they end up offering forms of worship by simply committing their lives completely to them through “inordinate affections {overbearing passions}” (Colossians 3:5) to certain things such as animals, birds, or creeping things. In so doing, they can end up corrupting themselves by the simple process of committing themselves through their admiration and awe of them, and they often lose sight of the whole forest for the trees. “Lest ye corrupt yourselves, and make you a graven image, the similitude of any figure, the likeness of male or female, The likeness of any beast that is on the earth, the likeness of any winged fowl that flieth in the air, The likeness of any thing that creepeth on the ground, the likeness of any fish that is in the waters beneath the earth {or the waters below sea level}” (Deuteronomy 4:16-18).

It is practical to study, research, and learn about the living creation God has provided us with, in fact it is very honorable, but if God is sidelined in the search and study of them, then spiritual corruption could enter, and one symptom or drawback to this is that those things can subtlety begin to take over one’s life proportionately to how much they have sold their souls to it, or as one biologist told me, “I love the species I have committed myself to” (See I John 2:15-17)! These things in nature that are so wonderful to study and research can sometimes draw us in until we become over-committed to them and because of that incipient danger, God mentioned them in His Word; they still are dangerous in today’s world when one begins to extract God out of His creation or never allows Him in, in the first place. Watch a nature show on television or read a nature book on almost any subject and count how many times God’s creation is credited to Him, and if you can find one or two references out of about fifty shows or books you are doing well. At the same time, also count how many times the words evolve or evolution or millions or billions of years ago on this earth are mentioned, you will find two or three hundred references out of every fifty shows or books which can be nothing but a conspiracy to slight the real Creator of nature and replace Him with the fictitious, but semilovable, politically incorrect, yet cuddly phrase of Mother Earth.

When people get hooked or prodded to only observe the minutia of nature, the big picture so easily fades away, and a large section of the academic world so often nudges and rewards its student bodies and establishments into doing just that, as they basically have someone on every minute aspect of God’s creation (of course ― except for the truths in His Word ― of course), and many of them watch over aspects of nature as though it was their personal stock or resource. All too often they only want people to see what they have worked out as facts or truths about nature, the heavens, and the living creation. They may have awesome understanding and knowledge to teach, but often they display utter contempt and indignation and look down on those so-called amateurs and novices who study the things in creation (especially in their own field of “expertise”), even though God asks us, His children, to observe and study His creation for our own blessing and benefit and for our personal enjoyment which helps us acknowledge His creativity: “Moreover the profit of the earth is for all {FOR ALL}” (Ecclesiastes 5:9), which would include academia.

There are those out in the world who just love the out of doors, so much so that they end up worshiping and serving the creation and never acknowledge the power source behind all they behold, the God of creation Who is sustaining all they see, as only God should be worshipped. “Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God” (I Corinthians 2:9-10). And as Jesus explained that, “flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven” (Matthew 16:17); this is because when we search for truth we are shown by God Himself, “For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened” (Matthew 7:8). Then God shows you His true grace in and through everything which God originally created for and with you in mind. You see, the true knowledge of God is received by living life and taking Him with you in your daily life, not so much by simply studying in your Bible or by simply studying nature, but by acknowledging Him in the life He has given to you in every corner and sphere of this earth.

We read, “ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee; and the fowls of the air, and they shall tell thee: Or speak to the earth {the inanimate parts}, and it shall teach thee: and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee. Who knoweth not in all these that the hand of the LORD hath wrought this? In whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind” (Job 12:7-10). The creation itself, animate and inanimate creation is connected to man in some way or another, and God alone is the one Who connects them all and reveals the essences of the life we have been set in by God. Yet all too often the mind of man will try and bypass God, via ignoring His Word while attempting to understand and explain the world and universe he finds himself in by supposed accident of millions of years of mutations; “If he {a man} will contend with him {God}, he {God} cannot answer him {a man} one of a thousand {of his questions}” (Job 9:3). This is why so many discoveries have been discovered by accident and stumbled over. This is why “they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us” (Acts 17:27), for in His hand is the soul of every living thing!

If one smells the flowers and does not recognize the physical sensations of the love of God for him, he or she has not asked. If one sees a rainbow and does not fathom the promise of God to him, he or she has not asked. If one looks upward to a night sky and only sees the flickers of light and does not notice the living amphitheaters teaching of signs and seasons relating to his or her Redeemer and their redemption, he or she has not asked. If one looks over the panoramic views of this earth and notices the pretty colors and shapes and does not perceive the staying power and majesty of its Creator, he or she has not asked. If one holds to evolution and utters out “to corruption, Thou art my father: to the worm, Thou art my mother” (Job 17:14) and cannot notice that he or she is wonderfully made, he or she has not asked. And if one looks at themselves and comprehends anything less than the Masterpiece God appreciates, he or she has not asked and has not seen Him Who holds all in His hand. “Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear” (Hebrews 11:3). “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead” (Romans 1:20); the living God “made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all things that are therein” (Acts 14:15). Have we asked, have we heard, have we received? “For every one that asketh receiveth” (Matthew 7:8), and “all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive” (Matthew 21:22). “For thou shalt be in league with the stones of the field {inanimate parts}: and the beasts of the field shall be at peace with thee” (Job 5:23).

“Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD” (Genesis 6:8). Noah found grace; God did not just come over to Noah’s house one day and spread some grace around on a whim, and simply choose Noah out from all the people in the world to be the one who would save the world and survive beyond the coming flood. Noah found, Noah looked, Noah searched for grace until he found grace in the eyes of the LORD and this is what saved him and his family. When we look out at the world or into nature, what do we see? Is it only the trees, the sun, the moon, the stars, all the colorful flowers, all the little critters, the birds, fish, bugs, mountains, valleys, forests, fields, and water, streams, lakes, seas, all the elements, and people all hurriedly going to and fro? What if everything we observe out there in nature had one single Maker and was made for just one solitary purpose and what if we looked for this Maker, found the purpose, and the one power source behind everything, what would we find? We would find the grace of God because we would be looking directly into His, the Maker’s very eyes!

You see, the spiritually-minded man has avenues in which to “look over” what God reveals and provides, while the physical eyes so often “overlook” what is to be seen in our mind’s eye from a spiritual perspective. The spiritless man of the senses has, “changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature {the creation is the Text} more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever” (Romans 1:25).

We can discover that our God is behind this life and its bountiful blessings which we are looking into, live in, move through, and enjoy as He is “upholding all things by the word of his power” (Hebrews 1:3). We read in Psalms 145:9 that, “The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works,” and as we behold all His works, we certainly will be viewing His tender mercies. When (and if) we realize this, then we will be looking straight into the eyes of the LORD, and we would find the grace of the LORD that He has been daily revealing! In the stillness of the day we can notice our God, “Be still, and know that I am God” (Psalms 46:10); in the stillness of our hearts we can recognize His continuous presence, as Isaiah wrote, “Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else” (Isaiah 45:22).

John 3:16:
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
 
John 3:16 contains the most preeminent love story ever told: For God - the supreme Creator and our heavenly Father, so loved the world - the loveliest act of a commitment ever made, that He gave - the ultimate present, His only begotten Son - the most perfect being, that whosoever believeth in him - the greatest offering from the heart, should not perish - the endless promise, but have everlasting life - this is YOUR eternal reward for looking for and finding grace in the eyes of the LORD!

The inspired believer may not be able to define all the properties and Latin names in the separate parts of a rose, for instance, but only the godly-inspired have a connection with the rose’s Creator, so that they have a better edge as they can see and appreciate His creative works behind the rose. God can give the believer personal inspiration and revelations about their own personal lives and walks with Him via nature without the use of a microscope or an encyclopedia on roses or getting pricked by the thorns and bugs on a rose stem.

When the man of science comes to study nature and he is nudged into focusing on only one aspect or one species, he may, for instance, come to recognize how one living thing in his sphere of study/research has a symbiotic relationship with another species or plant for the benefit of each other, and they refer to this as a form of evolution, imaging that over millions of years they somehow became help meets. They never looked to see if there were 3 or 15 or more relationships because of the limited focus syndrome that has saturated and shackled academia. However, this microfocusing does not permit him to see an even greater, worldwide aspect, which has nothing to do with evolution or time. You see, all of the living creations are not just busy doing what they do (after its kind) for the sake of being busy and finding a help meet of another species or kind. Nevertheless, everything they do they do universally for the sake of man, as this is their worldwide created purpose to cultivate and manicure and decompose and invigorate and clean the air, the water, and the land exclusively for man. And this is why the world’s systems attempt to limit or narrow one’s research so they cannot see this divine reality because that implies a Higher Intelligence behind the creation itself and by its very nature must lead to the Creator if followed all the way through to its end conclusions.

Note: God has set Spiritual Agencies to watch over laws and principles that ultimately aid mankind (see the above, subchapter Seven, Universal, Spiritual, and Physical Laws), and He has provided the visible, living creation to be under His man to ultimately help support this life and man’s livelihood. Above we have God Himself reaching down to us through all of these, but all too often man does not comprehend even a fraction of this, not recognizing these gestures that God in love has given to man who has been so busy explaining it all away.

We can see that through God’s creation He is actually reaching out to all humanity as far as He can possibly reach to sustain His creation that has fallen to sin and its consequences. “For the earth which drinketh in the rain that cometh oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for them {people} by whom it is dressed {by God through His living creation, and thus we} receiveth blessing from God” (Hebrews 6:7). God, “Who in times past {commencing at man’s fall from grace up until the present} suffered {or allowed} all nations to walk in their own ways {without God, and See Isaiah 55:8-9}. Nevertheless he left not himself without witness {or without a testimony}, in that he did good {as much as He could do}, and gave us rain from heaven, and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food and gladness” (Acts 14:16-17, and See Ecclesiastes 3:13), and if not there would be no life or people left on earth to enjoy His goodness with gladness.

Did you know that God is the provider of all the food that we eat; this is a living part of His witness and testimony to us, “For every beast of the forest is mine {God’s}, and the cattle upon a thousand hills. I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field are mine. If I {God} were hungry, I would not tell thee {so that you could eat}: for the world is mine {God’s}, and the fulness thereof” (Psalms 50:10-12). The world is given to preserve man, and God is saying that even IF (which is literally impossible) God was hungry and He needed your food, He would not tell thee, so that you could eat without the thought that you are taking anything out of the mouth of God (except for His Word,― Matthew 4:4). All the fathers and mothers around the world would do this so that their children could eat. This is a demonstration of just how much God really loves - you, and is concerned about - you - individually!

The living creation is doing everything it can possibly do to keep themselves alive (although in this present eleventh hour, they collectively are losing ground because the sin nature effects everything in a negative manner), but they work with one all-inclusive unity of purpose amid every other living thing, and that is so they can take care of this earth. The earth is in support of man, and the living creation is working for God for this very reason, serving as earth’s caretakers even in the water worlds and in the air. This work project began after the fall of man as his support network, and all the species are in God’s personal stead Who was the only caretaker of man’s home and world including caring for all the species on day six of Genesis, and this lasted up until the fall.

As God was over man as his personal provider in the Garden, the creation is now under man as his impersonal provider, as nothing man uses for his survival comes from any other source (whereas God was man’s only source in Paradise). Adam and Eve were to dress and keep the Garden in the sense that they were the Garden’s glory; Adam and Eve were the dress (the exquisite glory), and the adornment of perfection in the Garden, this was their lot as God’s Masterpieces of all creation. Life in all its aspects and for every living thing was perfectly fulfilling: God said “thou mayest freely eat” because the Garden was kept perfectly functioning and groomed by God Himself; He was the food bank and complete provider and caretaker of every living thing on earth.

Since the fall, “In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread,” as Adam and Eve went to work in toil to harvest, but it only yielded what the living creation would be able to provide in God’s personal absence.

The living creation had to alter their original habits over and again to accommodate their commissions and continually adapt to the world we are making and leaving to them, but all is for man directly or indirectly and surely and steadily they all have a part to play (or better, they have a part to work on this earth) in one way or another for man’s survival. The living creation is not developing up (or evolving) to anything more than to fulfill its created purpose, they are not trying to overtake and surpass one another by mutating into higher species, and absolutely they are not trying to surpass man, for man is their very reason for their being.

Take man out of God’s design and the remaining of the living creation has no purpose for their being.

Man is preeminent in all of God’s Divine Design as His Masterpiece, and the sanctified believers can come to the realization of God’s purposes of love for them, and this relationship is introduced to man by coming to understand Jesus Christ who gave his life to redeem and sanctify us in order to bring us back into God’s family. The Book of Hebrews gives us a marvelous presentation relating to our heavenly relationship with Jesus with his unique perspectives of us, “For both he {Jesus} that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified {you and me} are all of one {ONE, “for ye are all one in Christ Jesus”― Galatians 3:28}: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren, Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee. {Have you heard, have you realized, Jesus sings praise to you (you are Jesus’ song)?}” (Hebrews 2:11-12). Wow, it is true! Not only does Christ Jesus sing praise to us, in heaven, God Himself sings with joy in harmonious melodies of love for us as He displays that all of life really was formed, made, and created for man.

Zephaniah 3:17:
The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love {His everlasting love for you, see next verse from Jeremiah 31}, he {GOD} will joy over thee with singing. {Have you heard, have you realized, God sings of joy over you (you are God’s song)?}

What response can we offer other than to recognize them, to learn of them, and to respect that our standing is the pinnacle of love’s design, and perhaps sing back with thankfulness (Ephesians 6:5, Colossians 3:15), “Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing” (Psalms 100:2). God’s opinion, and of Christ Jesus who sits at the right hand of the throne of heaven (Hebrews 1:3) is certainly greater than the fallen man can fathom, that is until He inspires the sanctified (I Thessalonians 5:23) with a “new heart” (Ezekiel 36:26). Then the windows of heaven open up to us as we begin experiencing loving sounds with a new heart that is tuned into the sounds and melodies of heavenly words that draw us ever closer to their delight in and love for us.

Jeremiah 31:3:
The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee {to Myself, “No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him”― John 6:44, this is your personal heavenly embrace}.

As stated above, “Take man out of God’s design and the remaining of the living creation has no purpose for their being.” We learn from Genesis that life followed man around this world all throughout the inhabitable places of this earth. Let us peer into this truth a little, commencing in Genesis 2:5 “every plant of the field before {BEFORE} it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before {BEFORE} it grew . . . there was not a man {NOT A MAN} to till the ground.” You see, the field was not a part of the Garden of Eden, rather the field was what lay outside of and beyond Eden. The field is a reference to all of the land on earth. What lay out there were only barren fields in the landscape of earth’s scenery with all its hills, mountains, valleys, etcetera (simply because there was no man living outside of Eden ― subsequently, neither was any life thriving out of Eden, even the animals could not have survived without the produce of life growing in the fields), and when man first left their home and God’s personal care of them and over all of life, then, in toil (for all of life) did the fields begin growing ― man’s fall from grace and his departure started a chain reaction that began springing up into flourishing fields, followed by all the rest ― flourishing forests, wildernesses, mountains, jungles, swamps, wetlands, etcetera, as they spread out filling up the earth with their own kind, with their own bulk or abundance, etcetera, etcetera.

The living creation moved out of Eden carrying the seeds that contained life in itself - and in themselves - after their kinds - this all began developing when man moved into the fields or there would have been nothing for man to till and survive on and for the living creation itself to toil and survive on, whereas before man was out there in the world every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew was the stationary norm of this early earth during the Paradise age. The earth’s soil was prepared for all the abundance that was to come, but until the fall of man nothing grew in the field, as we shall further examine in Part Two.

This flourishing of the earth also happened after the flood when the Noah family and cargo came out of the ark. Even though life has followed man from his migration from both the garden and the ark, and even though it has been written in the Bible for thousands of years, we have been reading right over these inspirational truths almost since they were first seen and experienced by the two early families.

I Corinthians 2:9-12:
-9: But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
-10: But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep {deep as in our water example, below} things of God.
-11: For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? {As only you know and keep things in your heart that no other person on earth knows} even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.
-12: Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things {that are in God’s heart, and} that are freely given to us of God.

So often when we read through the Book of Genesis it is like a stone skipping across a river and landing on the other side, never penetrating down into its depths to notice what lies beneath and all the details of its pristine life, inspiration, and guidance. You see, “the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them {even if they were to plunge into the stream, its life-giving essence cannot penetrate into their stony hearts and inspire them with truths}, because they {the things of the Spirit of God} are spiritually discerned” (I Corinthians 2:14).

Isaiah 58:11:
And the LORD shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.

Thank God that we do not have to be like that stone; He promises, “I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them an heart of flesh” (Ezekiel 11:19); with this heart we are enabled to spiritually discern and then the fountain of living water begins flowing. “Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation” (Isaiah 12:3), “For we are fellow workman (joint promoters, laborers together) with and for God; you are God’s garden and vineyard and field under {God’s} cultivation, [you are] God’s building” (I Corinthians 3:9, The Amplified Bible**). This is why our spiritual lives can begin flourishing just as Paradise did, we have a new creation within being God’s field and garden, enjoying His cultivation (John 15:1-5). “Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up” (Matthew 15:13), and therein He enjoys the “fruit of righteousness” (James 3:8) with His children, and wherein we “yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness” (Hebrews 12:11). When partaking of the LORD’s banquet, “Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over” (Psalms 23:5), we also enjoy “the fruits of the spirit” (Galatians 5:22-23, Ephesians 5:9), and therein God walks with man as He did in Eden (II Corinthians 5:7, Romans 6:4), “God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in {walk in} them; and I will be their God” (II Corinthians 6:16)!

“He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water” (John 7:38). The source of this spiritual river does not emanate from out of your belly as is often thought, rather it springs from out of Christ’s belly, he is our entrance into spiritual life and blessings which are given to those of us who will, as he said “believe on him,” and become tapped in, so to speak. He further said, “I am the door by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out {no confinements: in and out represents complete freedom}, and find pasture” (John 10:9), “I am the bread of life” (John 6:33), “I am the light of the world” (John 8:12), “I am the good shepherd” (John 10:11), “I am the resurrection, and the life” (John 11:25) “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6), “I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman” (John 15:1), “I am the first and the last” (Revelation 1:17), and “I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star” (Revelation 22:16), as he guides us just as a star guided the wise men to him who is the Savior and Redeemer.

Genesis 7:23, 9:1, 9-10:
-23: And every living substance {EVERY LIVING SUBSTANCE! Hebrew yĕquwm that which exists or is alive} was destroyed {Hebrew machah to wipe out, to blot out, to obliterate completely} which was upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and the creeping things, and the fowl of the heaven; and they were destroyed {machah} from the earth: and Noah only remained alive, and they that were with him in the ark {just as originally Paradise contained all the life on this earth; at that time there was no life outside of the Garden}.
-1: And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.
-9: And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your seed after you;
-10: And with every living creature that is with you, of the fowl, of the cattle, and of every beast of the earth with you; from all that go out of the ark, to every beast of the earth.

When Noah first came out of the ark there was nothing living, nothing growing, nothing to eat, nothing green on the earth except for that which the “raven” (Genesis 8:7) seeded from his digestive system because every living substance was destroyed because of the flood, therefore, we know that at least an olive seed was dispensed by the raven since the dove returned with an “olive leaf {Hebrew `aleh a new (olive) sprout}” (Genesis 8:11). The raven lived off the carcasses of the lifeless animals (etcetera) that were strewn all around, which perished in the flood. The sight of a barren world was the same basic landscape on this earth in early Genesis, as both Adam and Noah could actually watch green-life sprouting everywhere, thriving before their very eyes, every day greener - every day more fruitful - ever day growing in and up - every day multiplying - followed by the entire world of species replenishing the earth - including man’s offspring.

For Adam - sadly and amazingly - he had everything in his home, now Paradise lost to him; man’s toil begins, and a new sin nature went out and passed through all, commencing from our first parent’s disobedience, “Thy first father hath sinned” (Isaiah 43:27), “by one man {Adam} sin entered into the world, and death by sin” (Romans 5:12), “in Adam all die” (I Corinthians 15:22).

For Noah - sadly and amazingly - he had a home, now the old world lost to him; man’s toil still continues, and the sin nature went out and passed through all. God instructed Noah to, “Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth” (Genesis 9:1). Every living thing on the land died from the water that caused a global flood of the entire earth. This is just as our first parents were instructed to do, “Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth” (Genesis 1:28), because every living thing on the first earth died from water that caused a cosmic flood of the entire universe (Genesis 1:2, 6-10, and see subchapter Three, Size, Sphere, and Scope, above). Life began anew in the valley regions below Eden just as life began anew outside of the ark in the valley regions below Ararat.

(How do we know that there were valley regions below Eden? Well, because the Garden of God was watered by a river (Genesis 2:10), and rivers flow downward into valleys. If you really want to know where Eden was you must first look up, and every person who has ever guessed its location has always pointed to supposed valleys at the lower regions, and they have been wrong “unless rivers really do flow uphill.” The Bible actually gives us clear directions to its precise location, but the research to uncover all of the details is lengthy and belongs to another day and another book (which book I would probably title: Sion, The City of the Living God and The Great King). For now, consider this brief hint as to Eden’s whereabouts; your redemption was purchased by the shedding of the precious blood of Christ, and that price of redemption was based not only upon the legal grounds of the Law, but procured upon legal ground, which was precisely at the very site where Adam sinned and fell from grace and where the second Adam, by grace offered himself for the sin of the world, and that was at the very threshold and location of man’s nativity.)

This world was REplenished, twice, after two separate floods; replenish is the Hebrew word male' and means to fill up (something) AGAIN, its first usage is in Genesis 1:22, “Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill {fill is the word male' to fill up (the water) AGAIN, which means the life had to have been present in the past} the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth,” meaning to fill both the water and air with an abundance of life again, multiplying more and more of the living creatures after their own kinds (Genesis 1:22). This points us to the first earth wherein life had to have flourished.

When God said to Noah, replenish the earth a question arises; replenish the earth with what? Replenish the earth with newer living things and people. What newer living things and people could there be? The only logical answer is the life contained in the ark and the offspring of Noah’s family because the beings that were living on the earth before the flood were no more! Where did they go? They drowned and were washed up into the earth which caused the old world that was to perish. Thus, God said, multiply and replenish the earth.

God commanded every living thing to develop “after its kind,” but man questions, “what came first, the chicken or the egg”? This is a wrongly framed question because neither came first. God came first, understanding this we then may come to the fountain of truth, to God’s answer of the chicken and the egg. Fallen man begins his quest, not at the beginning, but in midstream as his question excludes God when framing his questions while God includes man when framing His answers. Genesis chapter one, verses 11-12, 20-21 shows us that God made the chicken - then the egg, the herb - then the seed, the tree - then the fruit, the whale - then the calf, The Man - then the Woman - and thereafter their offspring. When God asked the living creation and man back in Genesis chapter one to replenish the earth the same question arises; replenish the earth with what? Replenish the earth with newer living things and people. What newer living things and people could there be? The life forms that God had originally made in Genesis day three, five, and six including the offspring of Adam and Eve, because the beings that were here living on the first earth before Adam and Eve were no more (See Chapter Seven, The Truth About the Origin of All Species). Where did they go? They drowned and were washed up into the earth because of the cosmic flooding of the entire universe and this caused the world that then was to perish. Thus, God said, multiply and replenish the earth.

Note the importance of God making the point about replenishing the earth “twice” as it lends itself to flow into the stream of truth that there was a former life that existed on the first earth just as life now exists on this second earth.

Now (on this earth) if we take just one thing away from the living creation that they consume, recompose, or need to survive and to do their jobs for mankind, well then, they will be compelled to find a substitute; it may not be as good, but it is survival ― survival for man. The living creation are no longer perfect as they were originally made and they cannot provide as God had, but collectively they are the best He had left after the fall, and I can only imagine how commissioning those to work, mostly working quietly behind the scenes for man must have hurt His heart as this sealed His further removal from His beloved man, He sacrificed them for man (Genesis 9:3), and worse, man, for the most part, could care less or give a darn or give Him thanks, gratitude, or praise. If we disturb the living creation’s environment, they will get along with what is left to them or move somewhere else or go extinct, but they will go down trying to fulfill their purpose with all their God-given might and individual precise God-given talents and skills and imprinted codes and so forth for as long as they possibly can, for God, for man ― for his survival! The living creation was also infected with the sin nature and some of them have gone haywire, rogue, and off-kilter as is all too obvious, but for the most part they collectively try to fulfill their purpose.

True, the living creation does not always know what to do as they are so far removed from Paradise (fallen as far as fallen man has― Romans 8:20-23, Jeremiah 12:4), and some have completely lost their way and have gone astray in some manner as most people today do not know how to serve God in a positive, biblical manner either ― without first coming to His inspirational instructions (II Timothy 3:16), and learning from Him. Most of the creation is still at work in many positive manners, just as man has survived in many positive behaviors, and just as true some have gone haywire, rogue, astray, villainous, and off-kilter as is evident by the daily news and the world’s prison systems, but, by and large man has maintained the kindlier status quo’s of his original God-fearing, innate nature.

The birds are still out there making their nests just as they did in the Garden of Eden. Even though these days the birds may be using yarns, strings, plastics, twigs, pieces of wire, or an assortment of other trash to construct their homes, they are still working exclusively for the benefit of man, but with a continuously heavier workload as this earth continues to deteriorate. This work has nothing to do with evolution; rather it is survival and not simply the survival of the fittest, but survival of man.

This is all being done by them to give (provide) man the best possible chance to make their way back up to God’s grace, “That they {you and me} should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us” (Acts 17:27). You do not find grace by knowing or looking up its meaning, and cannot find grace just because you can read about it in your Bible, as anyone, even sinners of the highest magnitude can read the Bible (and often do), but you find grace when you feel its presence, begin enjoying its uplifting delights in your heart, and follow its path that leads you into its source at the harbor of your heavenly Father’s love for you, and discovers His refuge in Christ and God’s safe passages through the storms of this life (Isaiah 25:4), then grace, true heavenly grace appears in abundance and uplifts the human heart to His Majesty’s loving embrace and guidance through this life and into the next!

To acknowledge the working of nature for man is to accept that there is a God, thus, the fallen man refuses to go that far and consequently he must remain in the weeds of the minutia of limited focus.

Oh, something imperfect is at work on every level and in every field and it is a part of the same diabolical system implanted through “the motions of sins” (Romans 7:5) that was implanted with the fall of man, and even though man cannot see what is really wrong, its effects are evidenced through the manifestation of sickness, decay, and death woven into every facet of life that did not exist in Paradise. We blame it on man of today and/or on his recent careless wastefulness, and we claim that we can fix it, oh do we love to be deceived and enjoy being deceived, and the reason for this is that it is a natural trait imbedded into the fabric of fallen man. When we can believe in our hearts that we shall make a better world (that will never add up to a day in Paradise), then we can comprehend the reality of our inner desires for deception that soothes the senses. The deception comes from within, from that fallen nature, from that “sin which doth so easily beset us” (Hebrews 12:1). Why, we have become so bold in our self-deception that we say with utter confidence that we are destined to colonize and govern ourselves out in the universe. We believe and say this because we feel that we have evolved enough to scheme that big, and because we think we can do, so we should do so, as another tower of Babel concept reemerges while mankind is in the throes of “deceiving, and being deceived” (II Timothy 3:13). We present to ourselves the same old fashioned hopes in different costumes, but it is the same shrouded story of advancements without God, just printed on newer paper and cloaked with different terminologies and offered in the name of progress and the development of us in the ever flux of evolving advancement. “Thine habitation is in the midst of deceit; through deceit they refuse to know me, saith the LORD” (Jeremiah 9:6).

And what’s more, people who advocate these theories are now suggesting that we (as a race) should start planning to move to a dead planet (like Mars) and seed and cultivate and repopulate it for the salvation of our posterity. Is not this the same old story of history repeating itself? It is the story of Nimrod and Babel all over again, and reminds me of the conquerors and barbarians of old after they had plundered and laid waste an area, they moved on to the next conquest where the grass was hoped to be greener, only these days the goals are much loftier as man hopes to take over a dead planet and make it anew in his own image, “and ye shall be as gods.”

I would suggest that we first try and rejuvenate our own earth before they blast off, because if we cannot fix a living planet which is temporal according to God’s Word (II Corinthians 4:18) and in decline, then why would we suppose that anyone even with all the money in the world could actually kick-start a dead planet to life? Could it be that man is just trying to play god and save the world by man’s wisdom (I Corinthians 1:18-31)? Well, all I can say is “happy trails,” but for me, I would rather follow God’s instructions to “wait” here on earth for Christ’s return for me (I Thessalonians 1:10, 4:14-17, and II Thessalonians 3:5). As he left earth, he shall return to earth “this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven” (Acts 1:11), and I can find no Scriptures stating that he will be stopping off ― off-planet to pick up stragglers or that we should meet him halfway before the entire universe melts away to make room for the new (II Peter 3:8-14), for those who patiently waited for him.

How ridiculous (and pretentious) it is to imagine that man can save himself, “None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him” (Psalms 49:7, this is an awesome Psalm to read), but Jesus did; he paid the ransom (price) for all men and women (I Timothy 2:6, I Corinthians 6:19-20), and soon, much sooner than we might ruminate he will inaugurate the final gathering at the end of the world (Matthew 13:24-30, 36-43)!

Our escape and salvation from the bonds of this world are in our accepting and knowing our Savior, Jesus Christ, and by daily walking with our God; and further, we may fellowship with Him by taking care of what He has given us on this earth to enjoy in this present life. I Corinthians 7:31 reads, “they {that is us} that use this world, as not abusing it {not overusing it}: for the fashion of this world passeth away,” but there is no reason why we cannot use the earth for its purposes of sustaining man and use our resources in helping this planet last until kingdom come rather than until people blast off. You see, God “hath made of one blood {not one blood type but one source, from Adam and Eve until the present} all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth {note: nothing about living in outer space}, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation {which just happens to be this earth}” (Acts 17:26).

Psalms 115:16:
The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD’S: but the earth hath he given to the children of men.

And fallen man doesn’t even acknowledge His gift (earth) that sustains us all, oh no ― good grief, he wants what is God’s. Fallen man pines for the space above, he wishes that the grass will be greener up there, he craves after Mars, he desires the heavens for his posterity, he wishes he could be up there right now, he just can’t away with or abide with the idea of ever sharing the heavens with its and his Creator!

God inspires His children throughout the sights and sounds and smells and touches and flavors discovered in every corner of nature for “the earth is full of the goodness of the LORD” (Psalms 33:5). The creation itself does not just display breathtaking views as the natural man would say, but life-inspiring perspectives to a heart tuned into God’s

All of the life within the Garden of Eden were below and subject to man and were not working for God in the sense of caretaking as nowadays, rather they were for Adam and Eve a wonderful spice, as in “variety is the spice of life.” Adam and Eve could have had an eternity of incredible study from them because their functions were not only multifaceted, but were inspirational to life itself.
 
You see, originally, man, beast, and fowl; and beast, fowl, and insect; and fowl, insect, and man enjoyed a sense of communication between each other that encompassed a predisposition and a propensity for understanding and feeling for each other’s affections and needs; such delightful spices of life have become totally lost since that wonderland age of Paradise gone.

Yes, there really is something to be said about talking or singing to your plants as they do somewhat respond in kind, but what is missing is hearing them singing right back at you, and smiling up at you, and as Adam and Eve would approach them they would freely offer their purest fragrances or their extraordinary abundant produce or the unpretentious devotions and affections from all of God’s creatures. However, this has not been seen or experienced since Eden. Just as thorns and thistles, etcetera, sprang up amongst the perfect Garden, now stingers and venoms, etcetera, sprang up throughout the living creation. Some of the living creation has passed into either passive or aggressive natures, all passed from perfection to imperfection, not by evolution, but by the sin nature and through the corruption and fear that infiltrated into the original Garden.

Those past communication skills of Eden were a heightened spiritual sense that has subsided into dormancy. The relationships between man and nature became unconnected, disturbed, or lowered. In eternity, our fellowship with the creation will again be much more than an inaudible whisper (that very few can barely grasp) because we will have a clear, uninterrupted confluence of dialogues with all of God’s creation. These days, humanity is not in the process of evolving upwards by any stretch of the imagination, but perhaps we could call it, “reversed evolutionary engineering,” as man has been in a descent since his fall from grace down into the sin nature.

You may recall the time in the Gospels when Jesus was in the wilderness for forty days at the outset of his ministry, and he was “tempted of Satan” (Mark 1:13). Jesus also “was with {meta} the wild beasts” (Mark 1:12). Many people assume that these wild beasts were chasing Jesus around in the wilderness for those forty days as part of those temptations, but the Scriptures do not support such assumptions or theatrics. The Greek word used for with is the preposition meta and it denotes association and companionship with the wild beasts. Jesus uses this preposition meta in Matthew 12:30, “He that is not with {meta} me is against me,” this certainly demonstrates that Jesus was with the wild beasts rather than them being against him in any way.

Jesus Christ is referred to in the Bible as “the last {or second} Adam” (I Corinthians 15:45), and being in many ways as Adam was, Jesus was also born sinless, he was “the innocent blood” (Matthew 27:4), and his mind was as functional as Adam’s was before he fell. Thus, the wild beasts were with Jesus to provide him with comfort and companionship through his torments, and therefore, there must have been some forms of real, heartfelt communications between Jesus and those wild beasts, and are why God tells us that Jesus was with them throughout his trials.

God provided Jesus with aid and comfort from His original creation of animals until the angels arrived and ministered to him some forty days later (Matthew 4:11). How fitting, and how profound this had to have been for Jesus to be visited by the wild kingdom at the beginning of his life’s ministry just as Adam was at the commencement of his life with the presentation of the animals (Genesis 2:19). We cannot fully grasp this companionship and communication that Jesus had to have had with those wild beasts, except perhaps if we have experienced the way our domestic pets and animals cuddle up and caress us in times of great distress. When we are saddened or under duress or terrified of something, our pets do seem to “sense” our “feelings” of hurt, or pains of loss, or fears, or when we are emotionally distraught, they seem to understand by providing us with comfort and solace at times. This is a semblance of what Jesus had experienced with those wild beasts.

In today’s research institutions one can, for instance, become a master in the study of one of the animals or creeping things or plants on God’s creation and acquire an intellectual dialect regarding species or plant terminology (which is good to know if it is one’s profession); however, one can become so absorbed that he or she loses all relative perspective of everything else going on around them. One can also become a servant of the Creator and know Him Who is above all, and then one can come to great understanding because they will have the support of heavenly inspiration. Of course, if one loves and walks with God and is in science fields, then their faith can reveal an extended reach, a further touch, and an inside insight from heaven’s Holiest that will actually bless and benefit their field for the betterment of society as should be the purpose of the science professions.

The main point is, do we know, fellowship, and walk with Him Who feeds the living creation (Job 36:31, Psalms 104:21-28, Matthew 6:26, and Luke 12:6)? Do we know Him Who is ever present with the living creation (Acts 17:28)? Do we fellowship with Him Who watches the living creation even when they fall (Matthew 10:29)? Are we with Him Who lifts us back up when we fall (Psalms 40:2, Micah 7:8, and Hebrews 13:5)? He said, “I bare you on eagles’ wings, and brought you unto myself” (Exodus 19:4).

Psalms 24:1:
The earth is the LORD’S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.

Man was, is, and will always be His treasured Masterpieces from the beginning; it is man that He gave “dominion over the works of thy hands.” You see, if we imagine that we started off in a pool of pond scum and evolved into modern man, then we insult the Maker and rob Him of His rightful due of receiving our love, acknowledgment, and gratitude for being our source of creation and life. We have seen that God provided spiritual Beings and Agencies to oversee the heavens and earth, the living creation under man, and man is in the middle and can bask in the truth that he is in the hollow of God’s hand.

Psalms 8:6:
Thou madest him {man} to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet. . .”

“. . . Straight Betwixt Two:

This work presents a journey that takes the reader through and then way beyond two leading concepts, one is the theory of evolution and the other is the belief of creation. True, these subjects are vastly separate; however, between them is a perfectly balanced platform for enlightenment where science and the Bible actually mesh together in the support of both physical and spiritual evidence.

In brief, this manuscript airs a refreshing approach into the origin of all species, recaptures lost periods of time, and returns many missing links to their proper foundation giving researchers in such fields of theology, evolutionary biology, paleontology, geology, etcetera, a fresh premise on which to forge ahead to understand the origins of all life’s creations which will be revealed throughout the chapters in this text.

Normally seen is either a half full or half empty glass and rarely considered is that there could be something else betwixt the two which is the perfect amount, and that is where this book will uniquely come into its own to fill in the full story of creation and the Creator’s universe and world-making process.

There is a vast reservoir of untapped information usually not approached because if scientific theory strays too close to religion there is scorn for being unscientific and if the religious stray too close to evolution it seems unbiblical. These concepts leave both parties barred from discovering the missing links of a full-on panoramic view of life and creation.

There are no known theories that can be applied to prove this manuscript to be incorrect, although all true science may be applied to prove this research to be totally spot-on, and there are no known dogmas of religion that can be applied to prove this research to be incorrect, although the Bible itself may be applied to prove this research to be completely true. Within these pages that reader will treasure a schematic that promotes a realistic view into creation’s purposeful design.

The subject within is controversial and to compensate it is tenderly written with respectful attendance that caters to each reader, knowing full well that most will approach this subject from one of the two opposing sides. The manuscript originates from neither side, affording the author freedom to delve into untouched areas and to retrieve hidden gems, and when viewed in the light of day makes sense, feels right, and fits comfortably with sensible reason. . .”

You are welcome to help us spread God’s Healing Word and Will through your donations to Bible Byte Communications, based in Wiscasset, Maine. Your aid greatly helps our internet presence around the world. Our organization works to spread His Word to people, and your financial help is gratefully appreciated.


We firmly believe that you should NOT give what you need to live on, only if you are blessed and willing to give. Please take care of you and yours before you would consider offering us a donation. May you truly be inspired and blessed by the LORD before you help, as we read in Deuteronomy 16:17 “Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the LORD thy God which he hath given thee.”


I have held many things in my hands and have lost them all . . . But whatsoever I have placed in God's hands - that I still possess.” Martin Luther
