Pre-Genesis: A Prelude to Creation. Part Two

G-d looked up from the three archangels and spoke,

"Shamayim! Erets! Begin your journey."

Outward from the fingertip of G-d, sprung forth the entire universe. In its wake, it left what appeared to be rolls of a scroll.

It was time.

After what appeared to be billions of years but only a moment in time, Erets, Earth formed from amongst the debris.

G-d turned to the three archangels who was watching the beginning of creation and said,

"B'nai Elohim, do my will."

And so the three archangels, with the help of thousands upon thousands of angels, reigned over all creation doing the will of G-d. They served faithfully until iniquity was found in Ba'el.

Ba'el was full of wisdom and beauty, but pride swelled up inside of him. He was able to persuade a third of the angels to rebel with him against G-d.

As they prepared themselves for war, Ba'el stood in their midst and assured them of victory. Using the power given to him by G-d, he rose up and hovered just above them. He held his arms in front of him as he emulated the stance of the Most High G-d and spoke,

"I will ascend into heaven."

A roar of cheers cried out from the angels in support.

"I will exalt my throne above the stars of God"

Again, the exaltation of Ba'el rose up, louder than before.

"I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north"

"I will ascend above the heights of the clouds"

Ba'el basked in the glory of this moment which seem to go on forever. And as the cheers died down to simmering excitement. Then Ba'el cried out at the top of his voice,

"I will be like the most High."

Which sent the crowd into a frenzy. At this, Ba'el lept upward toward the heavens with his cohorts following, leaving the earth behind.

They were met by the faithful Angels led by Mich'el. Each wave of the rebellion was turned back by the righteous fighters until G-d cried out with a loud thunderous voice,


All stopped and bowed before the Almighty Elohim. All except Ba'el.

"O How art thou fallen from heaven, O Heyl'el, son of the morning! How art thou cut down to the ground"

With G-ds final word, light engulfed the rebellion and Lucifer and his followers were thrown down to the earth. When they hit, the earth became a brilliant ball of fire. The earth, which was the crown of G-ds creation, was judged because of the rebellion and became formless and void and the darkness of the rebellion was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

And G-d said, "Light.....come forth."

And God saw light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.

And the new creation began.

I hope you enjoy this. Of course this is not biblical. However, it is biblically based. I would have loved to have embellish a lot more but that would have gone outside the parameters of the bible.

I hope you will continue to study the rest of Genesis with me as we pick up where we left off a few weeks ago, at the beginning of chapter three.

Please feel free to express what your vision of what might have happen just prior to Genesis 1:1.

Thanks again and may G-d Bless You.

Note: Heyl'el, Lucifer, are the biblical names of Satan.

Pre-Genesis: A Prelude to Creation. Part One

Before time began, before the here and now, there was G-d.

Without a word spoken, showing the awesome power of the creator, the universe, including the earth, sprung into existence. This was a pre-man universe. If the legends are true, G-d created the angels during this time. This included the three main archangels, Lucifer, the most beautiful and wise, Mich-el, the military leader of the angelic armies of G-d and Gabri-el, the messenger of G-ds Word. Their creation could have been something like this.

A Prelude to the Beginning.

Before this begins, we know that some of you will rebel against us and eventually we will have to banish you from our presence. However, whether you are Ang-el or Adam, you must play out your destiny in order for us to reach the goal. For we desire not to have mindless servants but dedicated and loving companions who desire to be with us and serve all through a committed and brotherly love.

We could create beings that would do our beck and call but they would not be what we desire because they would not have reached the goal through your own free will. Such companionship can only be obtained by taking a journey along the path of your own choosing. On this journey, you will always be in our presence or have the evidence of our existence. However, you have to choose your way based on faith, not by sight. We will now embark on that journey.

Are we committed?

We are committed.

Let it happen.

The Word of Elohim spoke out, “Hey-El, come forth.”

There before God, a light appeared. The light began to shimmer due to the presence of the power of the one who created it, Ruach-Elohim, God’s Spirit. The light, for the first time in its existence, bowed before his creator and spoke.

“Abba, my God”

“Hey-El. You are our son and we love you. You are our model of perfection, perfect in beauty and full of wisdom. You will be known as the cherub that covers. All of our creation, except Adam, will be at your beck and call, to do our will. Are you willing to perform the duties of your position?”

“Yes, my Father”

“To perform your duties, you will have others to help you.”

Upon saying this, The Word of Elohim spoke out again.

“Mich-El, Gabri-El, come forth.”

Once again, two lights came into existence, fluttering as the Spirit of God swirled around them.

“Adonai” they uttered as they fell on their faces.

Elohim responded, “Arise, you are B’nai Elohim, sons of God.”

Genesis 2:21-25 Eve, A Model of the Body of Christ.

“And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, This [is] now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.”

Pretty straight forward. However, the observant reader must ask, “If G-d created everything else from scratch, then why did he create Eve from the side of Adam?” There must be something else here. We see that from the very beginning, G-d instituted the relationship between the man and the woman as “echad”. Echad is the Hebrew word for one. It is used in the “sh'ma”.

Sh'ma Yis'ra'eil Adonai Eloheinu Adonai echad.

Hear, Israel, the Lord is our God, the Lord is One.

This same oneness is modeled by a husband and wife relationship. Haven’t you ever wondered why a monogamous relationship is so important to G-d after Y’shua, when in the Tanakh, it appears that he kind of turned a blind eye to polygamy? Because, it’s not so much about a man and his mate but more about how it represents G-d’s relationship with his people, the Messiah with his bride, the church. Our marriage should represent Agape, a dedicated and totally committed love. No matter what happens within the marriage, you are to be committed to one another. This is the same way that G-d feels about us.

The reason why G-d hates divorce so much is the fact that it makes a mockery of the model.

"Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh"

One of the greatest bonds you have going into the marriage is the one between the man or woman and their parents. G-d tells us here in these verses that we are to make the bond between ourselves and to G-d greater than the one between you and your parents. So great, that we must break our parental bonds if it gets in the way between you and your spouse and G-d. Yeshua drives this point home in Luke 14:26.

“ If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.”

“And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed”

They were innocent as children. That’s all this verse means. It models what Y’shua said in Matthew 18:4.

“Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.”

Genesis 2:18-20 Help for Adam?

"And the LORD God said, [It is] not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him. And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought [them] unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that [was] the name thereof. And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him. "

Most of us were taught that G-d made Adam and then he created Eve. However, here we find that the animal on land and the animals of the air were created before Eve. Also, we have a timeline to help us determine when this happened. Chapter one tells us that these animals were created on the sixth day.

I have heard from friends that they’re not sure if they agree with my assertion that Adam and mankind were two different creations as I have stated in previous entries of this blog. However, here we have another entry that just doesn’t jive if we believe that the account of the creation of Adam and mankind as one in the same.

Here in chapter two, we have G-d creating Adam then the animals. However, in chapter one, we read that the animals were created then mankind. If you believe in the inerrancy of the Word of G-d and that Adam and mankind were one in the same, then this should bother you. The only way out of this would be that Adam was created, then the animals and then mankind, male and female. What are you thoughts?

Also, we find that Adam gave the names to all the animals of the field and the air. How about the sea animals. Were they included in with these animals or did G-d name them himself? That will be one of the questions I'll ask when I get there. Is there a reason that the naming of the sea animals were left out of this creation account? I think it's super important....just curious.

G-d knew that the animals were not enough to keep Adam from getting lonely, so he create another. G-d, in his foreknowledge, knew there had to be another person, like Adam, in order to be representative of a model for us. We explore that in the next entry. Thanks again for joining me in studying the precious Word of G-d.
