Two Mysteries of God Revealed

Luke 18:34 But they {Make Believers – those who believe they are “saved” but are NOT, and Unbelievers – those sinners who are NOT saved} understood nothing of these things; His {Jesus’} words {teachings of the Gospel Message of the Kingdom of God} were a mystery and hidden from them, and they did not comprehend what He was telling them. AMP {What IS Jesus trying to tell us?}

PART 1 –

God the Son’s Ability to Add to the Initial Foundation of His Creation As His Father’s Foreknown and Predestined Plans Specify.
Job 38:1-6 Then the Lord answered Job from the whirlwind: 2 “Why are you using your ignorance to deny my providence {This is still happening in the Christian Church “TODAY!”}? 3 Now get ready to fight, for I am going to demand some answers from you, and you must reply. 4 “Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell me, if you know so much. 5 Do you know how its dimensions were determined, and who did the surveying? 6-7 What supports its foundations, and who laid its cornerstone as the morning stars sang together and all the angels shouted for joy {The original stars and angels were created long BEFORE the earth was formed on its foundation.}? TLB

Prolog

In Booklet 2, I will share with you God the Son’s ability to take His Father’s foreknown and predestined plans for His initial creation and insert whatever additions to a particular portion of those plans at any time and place in history that His Father’s plans call for. God can do whatever He wants, whenever He wants, why ever He wants, and to whomever He wants!
Isaiah 43:13 Yes, from the time of the first existence of day and from this day forth I am He; and there is no one who can deliver out of My hand. I will work, and who can hinder or reverse it? AMP
Isaiah 46:10 {God speaking} Declaring the end and the result from the beginning {I have the “whole picture”}, and from ancient times {past events} the things that are not yet done {future events}, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all My pleasure and purpose. AMP
Daniel 4:35 And all the inhabitants of the earth are accounted as nothing. And He does according to His will in the host of heaven {the stars and the angels} and among the inhabitants of the earth {man}, and none can stay His hand or say to Him, What are You doing? AMP

In PART 1, we will see God the Son creating the heavens and the earth BUT the planet earth was NOT part of the initial creation.
Colossians 1:16 For it was in Him {God the Son/Jesus Christ} that all things were created, in heaven and on earth, things seen and things unseen, whether thrones, dominions, rulers, or authorities; all things were created and exist through Him [by His service, intervention] and in and for Him. AMP

Depending on whether your belief is as a “Young Earth Creationist” – God created everything from nothing in six literal 24 hour days some 6,000 – 12,000 years ago, or whether you believe that creation is guesstimated to be 13-14 billion years old, Scripture shares with us that the earth was created AFTER the stars in the heavens and the angels.
Hebrews 11:3 By faith we understand that the worlds {of the universe} were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible. NKJV

In the preceding Scriptures, we learned that God can do whatever He wants, and we must learn to keep asking Him in prayer as to what He is doing and why, when, where, and how He wants us to help Him so that we are NOT fighting/working against Him!
Acts 5:39 but if it is of God, you cannot overthrow it — lest you even be found to fight against God.” NKJV

Chapter I

There are numerous Scriptures that share the characteristics of God, but one really has to search the entirety of their Bible to put them in an order that helps us to “SEE, UNDERSTAND, and WORSHIP and SERVE” this magnificent and awesome living Being/God. One of the first and main characteristics of God is that He is ETERNAL meaning that somehow He is without beginning or without end. In fact He has the Name “Eternal God.” God Himself claims to without beginning nor end while at the SAME time He claims there are no other Gods but Him!
Genesis 21:33 Abraham planted a tamarisk tree in Beersheba and called there {prayed to} on the name of the Lord, the Eternal God. AMP
1 Timothy 1:17 Now to the King of eternity, incorruptible and immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever (to the ages of ages). Amen (so be it). AMP
Isaiah 44:6 Thus says the Lord, the King of Israel and his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts: I am the First and I am the Last; besides Me there is no God. [Rev 1:17; 2:8; 22:13.] AMP

The Bible shares with us that God is a spiritual Being Who is made up of three separate and distinct Persons – the Trinity – God the Father, God the Son/Son of Man/Jesus Christ, and God the Holy Spirit {Three Persons} in one Godhead.
John 4:23 God is a Spirit (a spiritual Being) and those who worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth (reality). AMP
1 Corinthians 8:6 Yet for us there is [only] one God, the Father, Who is the Source{/Origin/Architect/Planner} of all things and for Whom we [have life], and one Lord, Jesus Christ {/God the Son – the Creator/General Contractor/ Builder for His creation}, through and by {from the beginning to the end} Whom are all things and through and by Whom we [ourselves exist]. [Mal 2:10.] AMP
Hebrews 9:14 How much more surely shall the blood of Christ, Who by virtue of [His] eternal Spirit [His own preexistent divine personality] {God the Holy Spirit is the Administrator of His creation} has offered Himself as an unblemished sacrifice to God, purify our consciences from dead works and lifeless observances to serve the [ever] living God? AMP
Colossians 2:10 And you {as a “Born Again” Saint} are in Him, made full and having come to fullness of life [in Christ you too are filled with the Godhead–Father, Son and Holy Spirit–and reach full spiritual stature]. And He is the Head of all rule and authority [of every angelic principality and power]. AMP

The Bible shares with us that God has numerous other characteristics/attributes that set Him above and over any and all perceptions of other so called “manmade gods.” Following is a short list of His characteristics that define Him as God. I will start His list with the three “Omni’s:”

God is omnipotent – He has unlimited power, always able to do His complete will:
Job 42:2 {Job speaking to God} I know that You can do all things, and that no thought or purpose of Yours can be restrained or thwarted. AMP

God is omnipresent – as Spirit, He has the ability to be everywhere at once:
Deuteronomy 4:39 Know, recognize, and understand therefore this day and turn your [mind and] {spiritual} heart to it that the Lord is God {where?} in the heavens above {the three heavens} and upon the earth beneath; there is no other {He IS everywhere at once!}. AMP

God is omniscience – He has an intellect that knows all things past, present, and future:
Psalms 147:5 Great is our Lord and of great power; His understanding is inexhaustible and boundless. AMP

God has Agape/unconditional love – for ALL of His offspring {plus for ALL of His creation}:
1 John 4:9 In this the love of God was made manifest (displayed) where we are concerned: in that God sent His Son, the only begotten or unique [Son], into the world {put your name} so that we might live through Him. AMP
John 3:16 For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the {the peoples of the} world {put your name} that He [even] gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life. AMP
Acts 17:28 For in Him we live and move and have our being; as even some of your [own] poets have said, For we {all of the peoples on the earth conceived by the natural procreation process} are also His offspring. AMP
Genesis 1:31 And God saw everything that He had made, and behold, it was very good (suitable, pleasant) and He approved it completely {God’s Agape is for ALL of His creation!}. And there was evening and there was morning, a sixth day. AMP

God is/has the truth:
Psalms 31:5 Into Your hands I commit my spirit; You have redeemed me, O Lord, the God of truth and faithfulness. [Luke 23:46; Acts 7:59.] AMP
John 17:17 Sanctify them {ALL of His adopted children} [purify, consecrate, separate them for Yourself, make them holy] by the Truth; Your Word is Truth. AMP

God is holy:
1 Peter 1:15-16 But as the one Who called you is holy, you yourselves also be holy in all your conduct and manner of living. 16 For it is written, You shall be holy, for I am holy. [Lev 11:44, 45.] AMP

God is righteous:
Daniel 9:14 Therefore the Lord has kept ready the calamity (evil) and has brought it upon us, for the Lord our God is [uncompromisingly] righteous and rigidly just in all His works which He does [keeping His word]; and we have not obeyed His voice. AMP

God is good:
Psalms 34:8 O taste and see that the Lord [our God] is good! Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the man who trusts and takes refuge in Him. [1 Peter 2:2, 3.] AMP

God is peace:
1 Peter 1:2 Who {us Saints} were chosen and foreknown by God the Father and consecrated (sanctified, made holy) by the Spirit to be obedient to Jesus Christ {before time began} (the Messiah{/God the Son}) and to be sprinkled with [His] blood: May grace (spiritual blessing) and peace be given you in increasing abundance [that spiritual peace to be realized in and through Christ, freedom from fears, agitating passions, and moral conflicts]. AMP
John 14:27 {Jesus speaking} Peace I leave with you; My [own] peace I now give and bequeath to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. [Stop allowing yourselves to be agitated and disturbed; and do not permit yourselves to be fearful and intimidated and cowardly and unsettled.] AMP
John 16:33 {Jesus speaking} I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace and confidence. In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]! For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.] AMP

Chapter II

I believe that God is “a showoff God!” If you want to find out MORE about Him, pray to Him for the sound mind of Christ, and as you continue to read your Bible through the leading of God the Holy Spirit, He will reveal to you mighty spiritual things you did not know.
Jeremiah 33:3 Call to Me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things, fenced in and hidden, which you do not know (do not distinguish and recognize, have knowledge of and understand). AMP

Let me arrange some Scriptures that will “Paint a Spiritual Picture” that will help us to better understand Him. God is SO intricate that it is nearly impossible for us finite creatures using our natural intellect to wrap our minds around an infinite God.
Isaiah 55:8-9 {God speaking} For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, says the Lord. 9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts. AMP
Colossians 2:3 In Him {Jesus Christ} all the treasures of [divine] wisdom (comprehensive insight into the ways and purposes of God) and [all the riches of spiritual] knowledge and enlightenment are stored up and lie hidden. AMP

So how do we overcome this deficit between our limited intellect and God’s unlimited knowledge and wisdom? How is God going to “level the playing field” so you can understand and implement Him and His Word into our lives? I am going to ask you to start praying for the “sound mind of Christ” which gives you, “The Spirit of wisdom and understanding, The Spirit of counsel and might, The Spirit of knowledge and of the reverential fear of the Lord” to help you not “short change” yourself to better understand God and His Word!
2 Timothy 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but {rather He has given us a Spirit} of power and of love and of a sound mind. NKJV
1 Corinthians 2:16 For “who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him?” But we have the mind of Christ. NKJV
Isaiah 11:2 The Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him {Jesus Christ}, The Spirit of wisdom and understanding, The Spirit of counsel and might, The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord. NKJV

You may believe that it is NOT necessary nor beneficial for you to pray for the “sound mind of Christ,” and God does gift you with a “free will” to make your own choices. But I can share with you that you are greatly “short changing your overall intellect” if you do not continuously pray for the sound mind of Christ!!!

Throughout this study, I will the use the words “successive ages” in my studies thus providing a timeline throughout the ages of time showing what God the Son has/is doing in time and place to this day in history to bring ALL of the pieces of His creation to unity in getting ready for Christ’s Second Coming.
Hebrews 11:3 By faith we understand that the worlds [during the successive ages] were framed (fashioned, put in order, and equipped for their intended purpose) by the word of God, so that what we see was not made out of things which are visible. AMP
Psalms 33:11 The counsel {guidance/advise} of the Lord stands forever, the thoughts of His heart through all generations {this is why you need the “sound mind of Christ” to decipher His spiritual thoughts.}. AMP
Isaiah 43:13 Yes, from the time of the first existence of day and from this day forth I am He; and there is no one who can deliver out of My hand. I will work, and who can hinder or reverse it? AMP
Daniel 4:35 And all the inhabitants of the earth are accounted as nothing. And He does according to His will in the host of heaven {the stars and the angels} and among the inhabitants of the earth {man}, and none can stay His hand or say to Him, What are You doing? AMP

I use the word “principle” in my studies as a particular basic and fundamental Scriptural truth that reveals to us True Believers a Scriptural foundation for the mystery that God is revealing. Without these Biblical principles, we cannot truly and fully understand our work with God, His Word, and what He is doing in His creation. I believe the following Scriptures are extremely important to us!
1 John 3:9-10 No one born (begotten) of God [deliberately, knowingly, and habitually] practices sin, for God’s nature {DNA – the Divine Nature of the Almighty – 2 Peter 1:4} abides in him [His principle of life, the divine sperm {of God the Holy Spirit. Who created Adam and all men with sperm? Who and how was Mary impregnated with sperm to produce Jesus Christ? Who caused your father’s one sperm out of trillions to impregnate your mother’s one egg to form you? Who was involved in your being spiritually “Born Again? [John 3:8]”}, remains permanently within him]; and he cannot practice sinning because he is born (begotten) of God. 10 By this it is made clear who take their nature from God and are His children and who take their nature from the devil and are his children: no one who does not practice righteousness [who does not conform to God’s will in purpose, thought, and action] is of God; neither is anyone who does not love his brother (his fellow believer in Christ). AMP
2 Peter 1:4 By means of these He {God} has bestowed on us {His adopted children} His precious and exceedingly great promises {some 37,000}, so that through them you may escape [by flight] from the moral decay (rottenness and corruption) that is in the world because of covetousness (lust and greed), and become sharers (partakers) of the divine nature. AMP

I use the word “mysteries” in all of my studies which I define as, “The secret spiritual supernatural things about God, His Word, and His Kingdom that are hidden in the Scriptures and revealed to us by God the Holy Spirit.” We MUST pray for, have, and use the spiritual supernatural sound mind of Christ to receive the fullness of these principles and mysteries as found in Scripture. Please read the following text very very carefully to understand what the True Believer in Christ can comprehend from the Bible versus how you are short changing yourself by NOT praying daily for the sound mind of Christ. Using the sound mind of Christ, you can comprehend and use God’s Word to edify your daily life beyond your own natural ability – BOTH in the spiritual AND physical realms! I cannot REPEAT this enough!!!

You need to pray for the sound mind to have the Holy Spirit reveal to you the full implication of the following text in and for your life. It is extremely important in revealing and understanding who and what you are about as a “True Believer,” and how and what God the Holy Spirit can bring about our “ONENESS” with God!
1 Corinthians 2:7-16 {Paul speaking} But rather what we are setting forth is {a mystery – } a wisdom of God once hidden [from the human understanding {of the Make Believer and the Unbeliever}] and now revealed to us {True Believers} by God {the Holy Spirit}–[that wisdom] which God devised and decreed before the ages {before time began} for our glorification [to lift us into the glory of His presence] {as we are spiritually seated next to Christ and His Father in the Third Heaven – Ephesians 2:6}. 8 None of the rulers of this age or world perceived and recognized and understood this {they were spiritually blinded, made deaf, and ignorant by Satan – 2 Corinthians 4:4}, for if they had, they would never have crucified the Lord of glory. 9 But, on the contrary, as the Scripture says {about the True Believer}, What {spiritual} eye has not seen and {spiritual} ear has not heard and has not entered into the {spiritual} heart of man, [all that] God has prepared (made and keeps ready) {in His spiritual Kingdom} for those who love Him [who hold Him in affectionate reverence, promptly obeying Him and gratefully recognizing the benefits He has bestowed]. [Isa 64:4; 65:17.]
10 Yet to us {True Believers using the sound mind of Christ} God has unveiled and revealed them {His principles and His mysteries} by and through His Spirit, for the [Holy] Spirit searches diligently, exploring and examining everything {Godly principles and mysteries}, even sounding the profound and bottomless things of God [the divine counsels and things hidden and beyond {sinful} man’s scrutiny]. 11 For what person perceives (knows and understands) what passes through a man’s thoughts except the man’s own spirit within him? Just so no one discerns (comes to know and comprehend) the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.
12 Now we {True Believers} have not received the {earthy, natural, demonic – James 3:15} spirit [that belongs to] the world, but the [Holy] Spirit Who is from God, [given to us] that we might realize and comprehend and appreciate the gifts [of divine favor and blessing so freely and lavishly] bestowed on us by God. 13 And we {True Believers} are setting these truths forth in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the [Holy] Spirit, combining and interpreting spiritual truths with spiritual language [This is Kingdom Teaching to those {True Believers} who possess the Holy Spirit].
14 But the natural, nonspiritual {Make Believer and Unbeliever woman/} man does not accept or welcome or admit into his heart the gifts and teachings and revelations {of the mysteries and principles} of the Spirit of God, for they are folly (meaningless nonsense) to him; and he is incapable of knowing them [of progressively recognizing, understanding, and becoming better acquainted with them] {God’s principles because his/her mindset cannot comprehend them – Romans 8:7-8} because they are spiritually discerned and estimated and appreciated {They are completely overwhelmed and baffled by them to the extent they cannot even seek them!}.
15 But the spiritual man {True Believer} tries all things [he examines, investigates, inquires into, questions, and discerns all things], yet is himself to be put on trial and judged by no one [he can read the meaning of everything, but no one {Make Believer or Unbeliever} can properly discern or appraise or get an insight into him] {truly understands where he/she is coming from}. 16 For who has known or understood the mind (the counsels and purposes) of the Lord so as to guide and instruct Him and give Him knowledge? But we have the {spiritual supernatural sound} mind of Christ (the Messiah) and do hold the thoughts (feelings and purposes) of His heart. AMP

Please start and continue to pray asking God for the “sound mind of Christ” for the rest of this study.

Chapter III

In the Prolog of PART 1, I stated that God the Son made a “place” for the planet – earth. When God the Son finished speaking creation into being, He said that it was “very good” meaning among other things that it was complete {Genesis 1:31}. Creation was complete in the sense that ALL of the foundations to the various pieces of creation were in place for them to come to fulfillment at their designated time and place in history according to God’s foreknown and predestined plans for the “successive ages” of time and place in history. This study will show this principle in action in two ways. In PART 1, we will see Jesus MARKING the spot for the earth in the initial act of creation and then His forming it and putting it on its foundation on this spot presumably billions of years AFTER the initial morning stars and angels were created. I must note there are stars still being formed and/or dying at this very time and place in history in the universe according to God’s foreknown and predestined plans. Some have called the second heaven – the expanse between the blue color of the ceiling of the first heaven and the outer limits of the second heaven an “incubator for birthing new stars.” We know that “Black Holes” in the second heaven swallow up glowing stars and squeeze the light/life out of them causing their death. There is continuous life and death in BOTH the “seemingly” inanimate/nonliving and animate/living portions of God’s creation. This is of great significance because it reveals the power of God the Son in His perpetuating of His creation!
Romans 8:21-22 For the creation {its animate and inanimate parts} was subjected to frustration {death}, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it {God}, in hope 21 that the creation itself {animate and inanimate parts} will be liberated from its bondage to decay {death} and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of God {everlasting life}. 22 We know that the whole creation {its animate and inanimate parts} has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth {life} right up to the present time. NIV
Hebrews 1:3 He {God the Son} is the sole expression of the glory of God [the Light-being, the out-raying or radiance of the divine], and He is the perfect imprint and very image of [God’s] nature, upholding and maintaining and guiding and propelling the universe by His mighty word of power. When He had by offering Himself accomplished our cleansing of sins and riddance of guilt, He sat down at the right hand of the divine Majesty on high, AMP

God is real and His Word is true, but in PART 1 and PART 2 of this study, I am also going to use a little of man’s scientific data to support the Bible’s claims and help to reveal and substantiate two of Its principles and mysteries.
Romans 1:19-20 For that which is known about God is evident to them and made plain in their inner consciousness, because God [Himself] has shown it to them. 20 For ever since the creation of the world His invisible nature and attributes, that is, His eternal power and divinity, have been made intelligible and clearly discernible in and through the things that have been made (His handiworks). So [men] are without excuse [altogether without any defense or justification {of NOT knowing there is a God!}], [Ps 19:1-4.] AMP
John 17:17 Sanctify them {True Believers} [purify, consecrate, separate them for Yourself, make them holy] by the Truth; Your Word is Truth. AMP

By definition, God is that entity through which everything was created from nothing, but He Himself has always existed – without beginning or end. Somehow, He is a living loving eternal spiritual supernatural being! Again, in order for you to fully comprehend the following study, please pray daily for and diligently seek the spiritual supernatural sound mind of Christ to correctly identify the following revelations of two of the principles involved in the many mysteries of God.
Psalms 90:2 Before the mountains were brought forth or ever You had formed and given birth to the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting You are God {the eternal God}. AMP
Isaiah 44:6 Thus says the Lord, the King of Israel and his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts: I am the First and I am the Last; besides Me there is no God. [Rev 1:17; 2:8; 22:13.] AMP
Colossians 2:2d-3 in order that they {we} may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, 3 in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. NIV

Chapter IV

In this chapter, I will prove there is a God and that He has plans for His Creation. What principles does God use to reveal the mysteries of His plans to come to fruition down through the Successive Ages?

God’s “principles” revealing His “mysteries” are not discovered by the general reading of God’s Word i.e. reading the Books of the Bible in much the same manner as you would read any novel from beginning to end. Do NOT let this confuse you! I find that in order for God the Holy Spirit to allow anyone/me to find His spiritual supernatural principles and reveal their mysteries I must search the entire Bible seeking the Scriptures pertaining to each principle. Each principle is like having a big jigsaw puzzle with many pieces for each particular and different mystery that He is revealing. I have to allow God the Holy Spirit to reveal the different thoughts and meanings of the SAME Scripture putting the emphasis on a different part of It for each principle. In turn, this principle has a particular fundamental truth that reveals to us True Believers the Scriptural principles for the mystery that God is revealing. This is why it can be said, “God’s Word is the ‘Living Word’ and the SAME Scripture can hold and reveal numerous truths!”
1 Peter 1:23 You have been regenerated (born again), not from a mortal {human} origin (seed, sperm), but from one that is immortal {spiritual} by the ever living and lasting Word of God. AMP

I believe that God’s foreknown and predestined plans found in His Book of Life are for ALL of the universe! This includes His plans for the “seemingly” unanimated/nonliving part of the created universe with all of its guesstimated one billion trillions stars and an incalculable number of planets in the universe. His foreknown and predestined plans are also for all of the animated/living part of His creation with its created angels, for the created vegetation for all the creatures including mankind on earth, and for the Gospel Message of the Kingdom of God found in the names of the stars which applies to the angels and to man plus His power to continue these plans for as long as He desires.
Hebrews 1:3 God’s Son shines out with God’s glory, and all that God’s Son is and does marks him as God. He regulates the universe by the mighty power of his command {word of His power – NKJV}. He is the one who died to cleanse us and clear our record of all sin, and then sat down in highest honor beside the great God of heaven. TLB

Let’s look into Principle I on how God in His foreknown and predestined plans brings about in the successive ages of creation for the heavens and the earth and His implementation of them in His time and place in history.Principle I – DURING the SUCCESSIVE AGES of TIME and HISTORY, the UNIVERSE WAS CREATED and EQUIPPED for ITS INTENDED USE BY the WORD of GOD.
Hebrews 11:3 By faith we understand that the worlds {universe} [during the successive ages] were framed (fashioned, put in order, and equipped for their intended purpose) by the word of God {God the Son/Jesus Christ – John 1:1-2, 3, 14}, so that what we see was not made out of things which are visible. AMP

The first principle is found beginning in Genesis 1:1-2 where we have God the Son creating the heavens and earth, but as with many of God’s doings there are extemporaneous CONDITIONS that need certain requirements to be met in the successive ages of the future for them to come to fruition.
Genesis 1:1-2 IN THE beginning God (prepared, formed, fashioned, and) created the heavens {the first and second heaven} and the earth. [Heb 11:3.] 2 {Listen carefully!} The earth was without form and an empty waste {The physical earth was NOT formed in the initial creation but had its “spot” marked in space in what we know as our Milky Way Galaxy in the utter vastness of the universe.}, and darkness was upon the face of the very great deep {The entire universe was without light!}. The Spirit of God was moving (hovering, brooding) over the face of the waters {found in the universe. What did the Holy Spirit have with Him to bring creation into being? God’s foreknown and predestined plans found in His Book of Life!}. AMP

As God the Son was following the foreknown and predestined plans of His Father in forming creation, He did NOT form the earth at the SAME time as He created the universe with its initial stars and angels. How do I know this? Scripture states that the original morning stars and the angels shouted for joy when God the Son formed the earth in its predesignated spot as part of His ongoing creation during successive ages. Listen to the text from Job as God the Son created and placed the earth on its foreknown and predestined spot eons AFTER He created the universe.
John 1:3 All things were made and came into existence through Him {God the Son/Jesus Christ}; and without Him was not even one thing made that has come into being. AMP
Job 38:1-7 THEN THE Lord {God the Son} answered Job out of the whirlwind and said, 2 Who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge? [Job 35:16.] 3 Gird up now your loins like a man, and I will demand of you, and you declare to Me. 4 Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Declare to Me, if you have and know understanding. 5 Who determined the measures of the earth, if you know? Or who stretched the measuring line upon it? 6 Upon what were the foundations of it fastened, or who laid its cornerstone, 7 When the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God {angels} shouted for joy? {The stars and the angels watched God the Son lay the foundation for the earth on its originally designated X marks the spot in the universe.} AMP
Isaiah 40:22 It is God who sits {high in the third heaven on His Throne} above the circle of the earth. (The people below must seem to him like grasshoppers!) He is the one who stretches out the heavens like a curtain and makes his tent from them. TLB

With what the Bible says about successive ages, I believe the initial stars of the universe and the angels were created at about the same time eons before the earth. All that God the Son did when He created the universe was put an X on that space in the universe where the earth would eventually be formed. The morning stars and the angels were present to witness God the Son placing the earth on its foundation in its space in the universe. The astronomers believe the earth was formed some 9 billion years AFTER the initial stars were formed.

I believe Genesis 1:2 shares with us that darkness was upon the face of the very great deep which means that at the beginning of time darkness – complete black emptiness – enveloped the whole space of the universe. The Scriptures in Genesis 1:3-5 share with us that God the Son spoke, created, and introduced the light. We now have to try to determine just what or who this “light” represents. There are three possibilities as to what or who this “light” is.

Number one I believe God the Son/Jesus Christ was introduced as the “true light of the world.”
2 Corinthians 4:6 For God Who said, Let light shine out of darkness, has shone in our hearts so as [to beam forth] the Light for the illumination of the knowledge of the majesty and glory of God [as it is manifest in the Person and is revealed] in the face of Jesus Christ (the Messiah). [Gen 1:3.] AMP
John 1:9 There it was–the true Light {Jesus Christ} [was then] coming into the world [the genuine, perfect, steadfast Light] that illumines every person {and includes the angels}. [Isa 49:6.] AMP

Number two deals with the creation of the stars that provide light in the universe and to its planets which rotate around them on their axis.
Genesis 1:3-5 And God {the Son/} said, Let there be light; and there was light. 4 And God saw that the light was good (suitable, pleasant) and He approved it; and God separated the light from the darkness. [2 Cor 4:6.] 5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, one day. AMP

Number three deals with the creation of the angels at about the same time God created the stars. I discussed this at length in Booklet 1 PART 1.

Please note the following of the succession of ages of creation. I believe Genesis 1:3 states that God the Son/Jesus Christ spoke the light into being which represents the stars of the universe. Our sun is a star which astronomers believe was formed AFTER the initial stars, and is the star which gives our planet of the earth its heat and light/day and darkness/night as it rotates on its axis around our Sun.

What does the scientific community believe about the age of the universe and the age of the earth? Scientists can only guesstimate the ages of the universe and the earth. They guesstimate the age of the universe at about 13.8 billion years old and the guesstimated age of the earth at about 4.5 billion years. This gives the angels about 9.3 billion years of existence in the presence of God in “Eden the Garden of God” which is in God’s Kingdom in the Third Heaven. I believe they were able to roam throughout the universe/all of God’s creation at will from the beginning.
Revelation 12:12 Therefore be glad (exult), O heavens and you that dwell in them {the stars and the angels}! But woe to you, O earth and sea {and those who dwell there}, for the devil has come down to you in fierce anger (fury), because he knows that he has [only] a short time [left]! [Isa 44:23; 49:13.] AMP
Job 1:7 And the Lord said to Satan, From where did you come? Then Satan answered the Lord, From going to and fro on the earth and from walking up and down on it. (Job 2:2) AMP {If Satan could roam the earth during the succession of ages of Job’s time and place in history, I believe he and all of the other angels could roam, observe, and study the names of the stars wherever whenever they wanted.}

SUMMARY

I pray that I have given you some “food for thought” about the existence of a true, living, loving, eternal God and the coming to fruition of His foreknown and predestined plans down through the successive ages for forming the universe, the stars, the angels, the earth with its vegetation, and the living inhabitants of the earth.
Isaiah 44:8 Do not fear, nor be afraid; Have I not told you from that time, and declared it? You are My witnesses. Is there a God besides Me? Indeed there is no other Rock; I know not one.'” NKJV
Isaiah 55:8-9 For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, says the Lord. 9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts. AMP
So how do we to overcome this intellectual deficit between God and us? How are you going to “level the playing field” so you can understand and implement God’s thoughts and ways from the Bible into your life? God has revealed and taught me His principles and promises for numerous Bible mysteries. I have tried to take the principles of His foreknown and predestined plans for the creation of the universe to show you how these plans provided a foundation for successive ages of continued creation throughout time and place in history. This principle will be more easily seen in the process of human procreation in PART II.

When God the Father formed His foreknown and predestined plans for the universe, He left a period of time between the creating of the heavens, their stars, and the angels and the forming of the earth possibly billions of years later. God the Father named the stars with the names of the Gospel Message of His Kingdom. The angels whom God the Son created about the same time as the stars had a high intellect and figured out the meaning of the Gospel Message of the Kingdom of God with its God and Savior – God the Son/Jesus Christ. For more information on the “Gospel Message in the Stars,” click on the following link:
http://www.mysteryworld.com/mystery/?p=489

The planet earth was important because there would be some form of living physical creatures having a spirit, emotions, free will, and great intellect who could come to know God and His SAME Gospel Message of His Kingdom with its God and Savior – Jesus Christ. These plans were all formed by God from BEFORE time began and continue to be implemented by Him through this present time and place in history – through “successive ages.”

The principle that I want you to see is that God can bring to fruition events in His plans for His creation anytime He wants and at any place in history in the succession ages. We also now must watch and prepare for the exciting successive ages taking place in time and in history as to how they pertain to Christ’s Second Coming.

In PART 1, I shared with you God’s foreknown and predestined plans for His creation of the universe and His bringing to fruition His plans for the inhabited earth into His time and place in history. In PART 2, I will share with you God’s involvement in the human procreation process which also shares His foreknown and predestined plans from before time began for populating the inhabited earth with each person coming on the scene at their specific time and place in human history on earth.

God the Son’s Ability to Add to His Father’s Foreknown and Predestined Plans for the Human Race Throughout the Successive Ages of Human History.
Isaiah 41:4 Who has prepared and done this, calling forth and guiding the destinies of the generations [of the {peoples of “Eve the mother of all the living” – Genesis 3:20} nations] from the beginning? I, the Lord–the first [existing before history began] and with the last [an ever-present, unchanging God]–I am He. AMP

Prolog

In PART 2, I will use the same principle of PART 1 now applied to the involvement of God in the “PROCESS of the PROCREATION of MAN” from before time began down through the successive ages to your/my being here at this specific time and place in history.

I believe that God’s plans that He conceived from BEFORE time and history began not only included man but also included the WHOLE of creation about which we do not have much information.
John 20:30-31 There are also many other signs and miracles which Jesus performed in the presence of the disciples which are not written in this book. 31 But these are written (recorded) in order that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ (the Anointed One), the Son of God, and that through believing and cleaving to and trusting and relying upon Him you may have life through (in) His name [through Who He is]. [Ps 2:7, 12.] AMP
John 21:25 And there are also many other things which Jesus did. If they should be all recorded one by one [in detail], I suppose that even the world itself could not contain (have room for) the books that would be written. AMP

Many people including many Make Believers cannot believe that God is involved in their or anyone else’s life BOTH physically and spiritually. They do not want to believe such frivolous inconsequential nonsense. It all is so ludicrous – a folly, a big waste of everyone’s time and energy. They cannot allow Christians using their Bible to “brainwash” them – taking away from them their secular education about the world and the things of the world that they obtained from secular schools and institutions at a high cost in time and money. They believe this worldly mindset will provide for them the tools they need to make a living in the world, but these namby-pamby Christians are trying to replace the world’s mindset with gibberish from some Book about its “God,” Who He is, His Kingdom, and what He supposedly did/is doing. Where does the world get its mindset? Satan is its source!
James 3:14-16 And by all means don’t brag about being wise and good if you are bitter and jealous and selfish; that is the worst sort of lie. 15 For jealousy and selfishness are not God’s kind of wisdom. Such things {common sense/human reasoning} are earthly, unspiritual, inspired by the devil. 16 For wherever there is jealousy or selfish ambition, there will be disorder and every other kind of evil. TLB

The Make Believer and the Unbeliever cannot spiritually know someone like God! And in reality, most people are not interested in some spiritual mumbo jumbo they have to seek to find and learn about. The things that I can see and touch – these are the things that are REAL!!! This is where it is at!!! But what does the Bible have to say about this? Must we get “plugged into God” to really know Him and what He is doing and what is happening around us?
1 Corinthians 7:31 Those {of the world who are} in frequent contact with the exciting things the world offers should make good use of their opportunities without stopping to enjoy them {should not be wasting their time lolly-gagging but become hooked and indulge on them}; for the world in its present form will soon be gone. TLB
Ecclesiastes 11:9-10 Rejoice, O young man, in your adolescence, and let your heart cheer you in the days of your [full-grown] youth. And walk in the ways of your heart and in the sight of your eyes, but know that for all these things God will bring you into judgment {God will allow you to live your life like you want, but understand, at your death, there will be judgment by God of what you did versus what His foreknown and predestined plans for you called for – John 5:22.}. 10 Therefore remove [the lusts that end in] sorrow and vexation {are annoying} from your heart and mind and put away evil from your body, for youth and the dawn of life are vanity [transitory, idle, empty, and devoid of truth] {As a True Believer Christian, you MUST be striving for spiritual maturity}. [2 Cor 7:1; 2 Tim 2:22.] AMP
Jeremiah 29:12-14a Then you will call upon Me {when I bring trials and tribulations upon you}, and you will come and pray to Me, and I will hear and heed you. 13 Then you will seek Me, inquire for, and require Me [as a vital necessity] and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. [Deut 4:29-30.] 14 I will be found by you, says the Lord,….. AMP

For many Make Believers and Unbelievers, it does not make any difference whether God is alive or whether He even exists regardless as to what the Christian Bible – that book of mysteries, unsubstantiated stories and fables says about this invisible “God.” To top it all off, those “loony Christians” use their God as an imaginary crutch to pray to, to solve their problems, to give them emotional strength and comfort. They even claim He gives them encouragement and peace, even daily VICTORY and triumph in their lives. This nonsense is just ridiculous!!! These people are insane wimps!!! I can take care of myself – thank you! But what does God’s Word say about His intimate relationship with His adopted children?
Romans 8:35-39 Who shall ever separate us from Christ’s love? Shall suffering and affliction and tribulation? Or calamity and distress? Or persecution or hunger or destitution or peril or sword? 36 Even as it is written, For Thy sake we are put to death all the day long; we are regarded and counted as sheep for the slaughter. [Ps 44:22.] 37 Yet amid all these things we are more than conquerors and gain a surpassing victory through Him Who loved us. 38 For I am persuaded beyond doubt (am sure) that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor things impending and threatening nor things to come, nor powers, 39 Nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. AMP
1 Corinthians 15:57 But thanks be to God, Who gives us the victory [making us conquerors] through our Lord Jesus Christ. AMP
1 John 5:4 For whatever is born of God is victorious over the world; and this is the victory that conquers the world, even our faith {in Christ as our Lord God, Master, and Savior}. AMP

So what does God and His Word have to say to counter man’s intellectual vacuum about God and His Word?
1 Corinthians 1:19-21 For it is written, I {God} will baffle{/confuse} and render useless and destroy the learning of the {secular/worldly} learned {those with advanced secular/worldly degrees} and the philosophy of the philosophers {self-styled thinkers} and the cleverness of the clever {inventors of schemes} and the discernment of the discerning {this gives them their “demonic common sense” – James 3:15}; I will frustrate and nullify [them] and bring [them] to nothing. [Isa 29:14.] 20 Where is the wise man (the philosopher {the wise worldly thinker})? Where is the scribe (the scholar {the well-educated worldly person})? Where is the investigator (the logician {truth seeker}, the debater) of this present time and age? Has not God shown up the nonsense and the folly of this world’s wisdom? 21 For when the world with all its earthly wisdom failed to perceive and recognize and know God by means of its own philosophy{/thinking/belief system}, God in His wisdom was pleased through the foolishness of preaching [salvation, procured by Christ and to be had through Him], to save those who believed {True Believer Christians} (who clung to and trusted in and relied on Him). AMP

We MUST learn to distinguish between the mindset of the physical secular realm with its kingdoms/nations of the world and the mindset focused on the spiritual supernatural Kingdom of God!
Colossians 2:8 See to it that no one carries you off as spoil or makes you yourselves captive by his so-called philosophy and intellectualism and vain deceit (idle fancies and plain nonsense), following human tradition (men’s ideas of the material rather than the spiritual world), just crude notions following the rudimentary and elemental teachings of the universe and disregarding [the teachings of] Christ (the Messiah). AMP
Rom 8:5-8 For those who are according to the flesh {Make Believers and Unbelievers} set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit {True Believers}, the things of the Spirit. 6 For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace, 7 because the mind set on the flesh is hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so, 8 and those who are in the flesh {BOTH Make Believes and Unbelievers} cannot please God. NASU

Chapter I

Very few Christians are inspired enough to diligently search the Bible for Its principles that reveal the solution to the mysteries contained in the Scriptures. You MUST read your Bible! If you are NOT reading It asking God the Holy Spirit to help you with the spiritual supernatural sound mind of Christ to discern Its principles and apply them to God’s mysteries of the Bible, you will NOT realize the full potential of God’s Word in your life! You are SHORT CHANGING yourself of some of God’s revelations, blessings, and anointing! As we approach Christ’s Second Coming, we MUST have and use all of the divine spiritual supernatural weapons and anointing that God has for us! As I begin to understand my need and work to separate myself from the world, there is one Scripture that helps me to define my struggles with my mindset, but it is extremely difficult to bring to fruition in my life!!! This will be revealed more in Booklet 3 – “The Saint’s Oneness with God and Each Other.”
2 Corinthians 10:2-5 I entreat you when I do come [to you] that I may not [be driven to such] boldness as I intend to show toward those few who suspect us of acting according to the flesh [on the low level of worldly motives and as if invested with only human powers]. 3 For though we walk (live) in the flesh, we are not carrying on our warfare according to the flesh and using mere human weapons. 4 For the weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood {fists, guns, knives, bullying, the tongue, etc.}], but they are mighty {spiritual weapons}before God for the overthrow and destruction of {spiritual} strongholds, 5 [Inasmuch as we] {using God’s knowledge and wisdom – sound mind of Christ} refute arguments and theories and reasonings and every proud and lofty {worldly} thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God; and we lead every thought and purpose away captive into the obedience of Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed one), AMP

I do not know what you used to believe as an “Unbeliever?” Or what you now believe as a supposedly “True Believer?” I used to believe a lot of the above. Or even worse, I did NOT care period! I was too busy living my life in the world and chasing after the things of the world – which meant I was striving to live the capitalistic/kingdom of the world lifestyle – the making lots of money and NOT caring whom I hurt or run over in the process! I had to learn the meaning of the following Scripture the HARD way – I lost it ALL including wife and family!!!
1 John 2:15-16 Stop loving this evil world and all that it offers you, for when you love these things you show that you do not really love God; 16 for all these worldly things, these evil desires-the craze for sex, the ambition to buy everything that appeals to you, and the pride that comes from wealth and importance-these are not from God. They are from this evil world itself. TLB
To tell you a very exciting truth, during my time of “seeking the world,” it did NOT REALLY satisfy me!!! PTL!!! When I accepted Christ as my Savior, my life drastically changed!!! As I read the Bible, I could see that God loved to reveal His Word to me/anyone! The more I read the more I changed!!! I not only know Jesus Christ as my personal Savior, but now I have come to know Him as my Lord God, and Master! I am now seeking His way and will in all the ways of my life!
Romans 12:2 Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you]. AMP

How did all of this happen? It was NOT easy nor did it happen overnight! It took a lot of time in prayer and listening to God the Holy Spirit showing me the various Biblical principles that reveal the mysteries from His Word. Everything that God the Holy Spirit has revealed to me has come from His Word – the Protestant Christian Bible and using the spiritual supernatural sound mind of Christ {1 Corinthians 2:16}. I pray daily for BOTH my wife and myself that we be on the right lines on our pages in His Book of Life bringing to fruition His foreknown and predestined plans for our lives. Please click on the following link for my testimony

Jeremiah 10:23 O Lord [pleads Jeremiah in the name of the people], I know that [the determination of] the way of a man is not in himself; it is not in man [even in a strong man or in a man at his best] to direct his [own] steps. [Ps 37:23; Prov 20:24.] AMP
Psalms 37:23-24 The steps of a [good] man are directed and established by the Lord when He delights in his way [and He busies Himself with his every step]. 24 Though he falls, he shall not be utterly cast down, for the Lord grasps his hand in support and upholds him. AMP

Chapter II

But the real truth is that God is and has been present in our lives every nanosecond of time for an incalculable period of time BEFORE time and history began desiring for us to become His offspring through the natural procreation process and then ultimately for us to become His spiritually adopted children by being “Born Again” through our true faith in Jesus Christ as our personal Savior!
Acts 17:28 For in Him {God} we live and move and have our being; as even some of your [own] poets have said, For we are also His {physical} offspring {through His involvement in the human procreation process}. AMP
Ephesians 1:5 For He {God} foreordained us (destined us, planned in love for us) to be adopted (revealed) as His own {spiritual} children through Jesus Christ, in accordance with the purpose of His will [because it pleased Him and was His kind intent] — AMP
Acts 4:12 And there is salvation in and through no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by and in which we must be saved {Jesus Christ}. AMP
John 1:12-13 But to as many as did receive and welcome Him, He gave the authority (power, privilege, right) to become the {adopted} children of God, that is, to those who believe in (adhere to, trust in, and rely on) His name — [Isa 56:5.] 13 Who owe their birth neither to bloods nor to the will of the flesh [that of physical impulse] nor to the will of man [that of a natural father], but to God. [They are born of God!] AMP

God started making His plans in His Book of Life for us eons BEFORE anything was! Can you accept this as being true? What picture does the Bible give us about our having a predestined preplanned living and loving relationship with the Godhead in our lives?
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome. AMP {What is our “hope?”}

Ephesians 1:3-4 May blessing (praise, laudation, and eulogy) be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah) Who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual (given by the Holy Spirit) blessing in the heavenly realm! 4 Even as [in His love] He chose us [actually picked us out for Himself as His own] in Christ before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy (consecrated and set apart for Him) and blameless in His sight, even above reproach, before Him in love {God truly desires that everyone be “Born Again”}. AMP
Romans 8:29-30 For those whom He foreknew [of whom He was aware and loved beforehand], He also destined from the beginning [foreordaining them] to be molded into the {spiritual} image of His Son [and share inwardly His {spiritual} likeness], that He might become the firstborn among many brethren. 30 And those whom He thus foreordained, He also called; and those whom He called, He also justified (acquitted, made righteous, putting them into right standing with Himself). And those whom He justified, He also glorified [raising them to a heavenly dignity and condition or state of being]. AMP
Isaiah 41:10 Fear not [there is nothing to fear], for I am with you; do not look around you in terror and be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen and harden you to difficulties, yes, I will help you; yes, I will hold you up and retain you with My [victorious] right hand of rightness and justice. [Acts 18:10.] AMP
Hebrews 13:5 Let your character or moral disposition be free from love of money [including greed, avarice, lust, and craving for earthly possessions] and be satisfied with your present [circumstances and with what you have]; for He [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (relax My hold on you)! [Assuredly not!] [Josh 1:5.] AMP
Genesis 2:7 Then the Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath or spirit of life, and man became a living being. [1 Cor 15:45-49.] AMP
Job 27:3 As long as my life is still whole within me, and the breath of God is [yet] in my nostrils, {God lives in our physical lives as the “breath of life” even though we know that it is the plants that produce the oxygen that we breathe. What we do NOT think about is Who and how the plants were designed by to do this, and Who makes them and us continue on. Stop for a few minutes and pray and think about what the Scriptures are saying. Can you see God’s “hand” in your life?} AMP

God’s original plans desire for ALL peoples to be “saved!”
Romans 2:4 Or are you [so blind as to] trifle with and presume upon and despise and underestimate the wealth of His kindness and forbearance and long-suffering patience? Are you unmindful or actually ignorant [of the fact] that God’s kindness is intended to lead you to repent (to change your mind and inner man to accept God’s will)? AMP
1 Timothy 2:4 {God} Who wishes all men to be saved and [increasingly] to perceive and recognize and discern and know precisely and correctly the [divine] Truth. AMP

Chapter III

This SAME principle is found in God’s plans to bring forth at the right time and place in history every foreknown and predestined naturally conceived human being whose name is found written in His Book of Life from BEFORE time began. But again, what are the extemporaneous CONDITIONS and the certain requirements that MUST be met so that we can see this happening?
Psalms 139:16 Your eyes saw my {yet – NKJV} unformed substance, and in Your book all the days [of my life] were written before ever they took shape, when as yet there was none of them {before time began}. AMP
Ephesians 1:3-4 May blessing (praise, laudation, and eulogy) be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah) Who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual (given by the Holy Spirit) blessing in the heavenly realm! 4 Even as [in His love] He chose us [actually picked us out for Himself as His own] in Christ before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy (consecrated and set apart for Him) and blameless in His sight, even above reproach, before Him in love {God had plans to “save” YOU – for you to be “Born Again” BEFORE time began! The choice is yours!!!}. AMP
Revelation 3:5 Thus shall he who conquers (is victorious) {remains a True Believer throughout their life} be clad in white garments, and I will not erase or blot out his name from the Book of Life; I will acknowledge him [as Mine] and I will confess his name openly before My Father and before His angels. [Ps 69:28; Dan 12:1.] AMP

When do you think that God first began to think about you? In what did He write down His plans for you? Was there a “specific human male” and a “specific human female” necessary for YOU to be conceived at a certain time and place in history? Was God the Holy Spirit present at your conception to make this happen? Does He know you by your name? Does His foreknown and predestined plans include Jesus Christ as your personal Savior? Did His plans include a ministry for you? The answer to ALL of the above questions is YES!!! How did ALL of these genealogies coincide in time to have YOU here at this time and place in history?
Genesis 3:20 The man called his wife’s name Eve [life spring], because she was the mother of all the living. AMP
Isaiah 41:4 Who has prepared and done this, calling forth and guiding the destinies of the generations [{of the peoples} of the nations] from the beginning? I, the Lord–the first [existing before history began] and with the last [an ever-present, unchanging God]–I am He. AMP

God’s plans for ALL of His creation including the human race began eons before anything was. Your being present on this day/time and place in history is according to His foreknown and predestined plans as recorded in His Book of Life for you.
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome {What is our “hope?”}. AMP
Titus 1:2 [Resting] in the hope of eternal life, [life] which the ever truthful God Who cannot deceive promised before the world or the ages of time began. AMP
Psalms 139:16 Your eyes saw my {yet – NKJV} unformed substance, and in Your book all the days [of my life] were written before ever they took shape, when as yet there was none of them. AMP

This is the SAME principle that God used in His delayed forming of the earth. He has your life preplanned from BEFORE time began and is now through successive ages bringing those plans to fruition at any time and at any place in history at His discretion and according to His plans.
Isaiah 46:10 Declaring the end and the result from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all My pleasure and purpose, AMP

Chapter IV

How did you come into being at this time and place in history? Scientist guesstimate that about 100 billion people have lived from the time man was first created on the earth. How many men in all of the 50 billion men that have lived since man was created could be your father? How many women in all of the 50 billion women that have lived since humans were created could be your mother? The answer is exceedingly simple! ONLY ONE MAN AND ONLY ONE WOMAN IN ALL OF HISTORY – PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE – CAN EVER BE YOUR DAD AND MOM – YOUR PARENTS!!! NO ONE ELSE!!! How does God do this? Again….
Isaiah 41:4 Who has prepared and done this, calling forth and guiding the destinies of the generations [of the {peoples of the} nations] from the beginning? I, the Lord–the first [existing before history began] and with the last [an ever-present, unchanging God]–I am He. AMP
Study carefully the following material. Not everyone wants YOU to know these truths! Human Reproduction Specialists guesstimate that each human male is capable of producing up to twelve trillion (12,000,000,000,000) sperm in his reproductive lifetime. The Encyclopedia Britannica gives us some insights as to the number of sperm in each man’s one ejaculate, “Only one sperm fertilizes each egg, even though 300,000,000 to 400,000,000 sperm are contained in an average ejaculation. Each human egg {which is the largest cell in the female human body} and human sperm {which is the smallest cell in the male human body} produced has slightly different genetic information carried in the chromosomes; this accounts for the differences and similarities between children of the same parents.”
The Encyclopedia Britannica further states that each human female contains “Hollow balls of cells—follicles—containing immature egg cells are present in the ovaries at birth; there are usually 150,000 to 500,000 follicles or more at this time. When the female reaches adolescence and young adulthood, the number has been reduced to only about 34,000. During the active child-bearing years, normally between the ages 13 and 50, only 300 to 400 of the follicles undergo maturation.” 
{****I researched the above stats several years ago when you could go online and Google “Encyclopedia Britannica – human sperm and human ovary,” and it would give you the above information. Britannica ceased printing their Encyclopedia in 2012 and now you have to go online, register, have a “password,” and pay to get this information.}
THINK ABOUT THIS!!! To put this into perspective – the male and female human reproductive systems are diametrically opposed in their physiological make up and operation. Your father continuously produces up to12 trillion sperm during his 60 plus reproductive years. His sperm can be stored in his body for quite some time and then reabsorbed unless ejaculated. Each ejaculate contains some 300-400 million sperm. Your father’s sperm and only your father’s sperm contains the DNA that produced you and continues in your genealogy. He also determines the sex of each of his offspring.

Your mother was born with all of her eggs stored in her ovaries. THIS IS IMPORTANT! WHY? Scientists have been desperately trying to prove that the human female produces additional eggs after her birth but has been unsuccessful. As it stands, this means these 300-400 eggs that will reach maturation and were stored in her ovaries at birth were actually formed in her at her conception. This begs some really interesting questions!!! Was God the Holy Spirit actually present at her conception? Did He place in her eggs the continued DNA for her family genealogy? Did God foreknow and predestine the joined together DNA from your mother’s one egg and your father’s one sperm that produced you with your DNA to continue your family tree/genealogy and the human race? Does God participate in the natural procreation process? YES, YES, YES, and YES!!!
Psalms 139:13 You {God the Holy Spirit} made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit them together in my mother’s womb. TLB
Ecclesiastes 11:5 God’s ways are as mysterious as the pathway of the wind {God the Holy Spirit – John 3:8} and as the manner in which a human spirit is infused into the little body of a baby while it is yet in its mother’s womb. TLB
Now comes the tricky part – how does one randomly produced but specific sperm from your father’s 60 years of trillions of continuously produced sperm join up with one monthly randomly released but specific mature egg from your mother’s 300-400 eggs that will reach maturation stored in her ovaries from birth to produce YOU at the right time and place in history? Any other sperm from your father with the same egg from your mother or the same sperm from your father with any other egg from your mother would have resulted in another offspring – one of your siblings BUT NOT YOU! The fact is – your two parents are the ONLY parents in the whole history of the human race past, present, and future who could have produced you! How is God involved in this process of procreation? Let’s use the sound mind of Christ to think this through.
You are a unique, one of a kind individual. Through the God ordained process of natural human procreation and only through His involvement in this natural coitus process, no other person in the entire world was, is, or ever will be an exact replica or duplicate of you. This is easily proven through physical identification. No other person in the world has identical mitochondrial DNA, an identical set of palm and fingerprints, an identical set of footprints, or an identical retina pattern as yours. YOU are YOU and ONLY YOU are YOU!!!
Psalms 139:13-14 You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit them together in my mother’s womb. 14 Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! It is amazing to think about. Your workmanship is marvelous-and how well I know it. TLB

God’s foreknown and predestined plans for your life also includes your salvation and your ministry.
1 Timothy 2:3-4 For such [praying] is good and right, and [it is] pleasing and acceptable to God our Savior, 4 Who wishes all men to be saved and [increasingly] to perceive and recognize and discern and know precisely and correctly the [divine] Truth. AMP
Ephesians 1:4 Even as [in His love] He {God the Father} chose us [actually picked us out for Himself as His own] in Christ before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy (consecrated and set apart for Him) and blameless in His sight, even above reproach, before Him in love {“Born Again”}. AMP
Jeremiah 1:5 Before I formed you {Jeremiah} in the womb I knew [and] approved of you [as My chosen instrument], and before you were born I separated and set you apart, consecrating you; [and] I appointed you as a prophet to the nations. [Ex 33:12; Isa 49:1, 5; Rom 8:29.] AMP

Chapter V

In closing, I am going to use a Scripture that no one even looks at let alone understands. God shares with us that it is He who not only created Adam and Eve but also called forth and guided the successive generations of the peoples from the beginning of human history through the successive ages to this present time and place in history.
Isaiah 41:4 Who has prepared and done this, calling forth and guiding the destinies of the generations [{the peoples} of the nations] from the beginning? I, the Lord–the first [existing before history began] and with the last [an ever-present, unchanging God]–I am He. AMP

As you read the Bible, there is no more BORING reading than the Books and their chapters that contain the genealogy of numerous Old Testament people. WHO CARES ABOUT WHO BEGAT SO AND SO, AND SO AND SO BEGAT SO AND SO, etc., etc., etc. Then we come to the New Testament Books of Matthew and Luke which contain the genealogy of the Son of Man – Jesus Christ. What is God revealing to us? The beginning of all of these genealogies reveal the principles of God’s mysterious intricate workings in the process of human procreation from the beginning of man to the time of Christ in history. God is using these genealogies to reveal to us His involvement in the history of the people – starting with His offspring in the Old Testament culminating in the virgin birth of Jesus Christ in the New Testament. If you go on the internet, you will find numerous websites that will trace your genealogy as far back as they can. Using the Scripture from Isaiah 41, we should be able to reverse this process to the beginning which should reveal to us that God is also involved in your and my genealogy as far back as from Eve – the mother of all of the living.
Genesis 3:20 The man called his wife’s name Eve [life spring], because she was the mother of all the living. AMP

The “Theory of Evolution” CANNOT possibly work in the process of human procreation because the odds against natural selection become overwhelmingly insurmountable – in the trillions to one range! It is not easy to provide Scripture that reveals that God works in the procreation process of ALL the living species of creatures and plant varieties, but as you read through the Bible, God treats all of His creation similarly from the beginning of creation!
Malachi 3:6 For I am the Lord, I do not change; that is why you, O sons of Jacob, are not consumed. AMP
Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ (the Messiah) is [always] the same, yesterday, today, [yes] and forever (to the ages). AMP
Isaiah 46:10 Declaring the end and the result from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all My pleasure and purpose, AMP
Genesis 1:31 And God saw everything that He had made, and behold, it was very good (suitable, pleasant) and He approved it completely. And there was evening and there was morning, a sixth day. AMP

SUMMARY

I pray that I have again given you some “food for thought” about the existence of a true, living, loving, eternal God and His plans for you and all of mankind and His creation.
Job 23:13-14 But He is unchangeable, and who can turn Him? And what He wants to do, that He does. 14 For He performs [that which He has] planned for me, and of many such matters He is mindful. AMP

In the summary of PART 1, I shared the thought that God carried out successive ages of creation in the universe. The principle that I want you to see is that God can augment events in His plans for His universe anytime He wants and at any place in history from the beginning of time to the end. We also must be aware of God’s plans that could include us are taking place now in time and place in history preparing for Christ’s Second Coming.

We now come to the summary for PART 2 of God’s involvement in the procreation process of each human being. God had foreknown and predestined plans for each one of His naturally conceived offspring written in His book of Life from BEFORE time began. His plans included your complete genealogy from the beginning, your place in time and appearance in history, your name, sex, physical appearance/characteristics, His plans for you to become an adopted “Child of God,” and have a foreordained ministry.
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome. AMP
Acts 17:28 For in Him we live and move and have our being; as even some of your [own] poets have said, For we are also His offspring. AMP
Ephesians 1:5 For He foreordained us (destined us, planned in love for us) to be adopted (revealed) as His own children through Jesus Christ, in accordance with the purpose of His will [because it pleased Him and was His kind intent]—AMP
Exodus 33:17 And the Lord said to Moses, I will do this thing also that you have asked, for you have found favor, loving-kindness, and mercy in My sight and I know you personally and by name. [Rev 2:17.] AMP
Jeremiah 1:5 Before I formed you in the womb I knew [and] approved of you [as My chosen instrument], and before you were born I separated and set you apart, consecrating you; [and] I appointed you as a prophet to the nations. [Ex 33:12; Isa 49:1, 5; Rom 8:29.] AMP

In the next study on our “ONENESS” relationship as “Born Again” believers with God, we will look into an area of our faith in God that is not taught nor peached upon nearly enough in the Church. An eternal relationship that ONLY “Born Again” adopted children of God can have with their spiritual supernatural Father[s.] {This Name “Father” is plural for a reason. Follow this along.}.
Matthew 6:9 Pray, therefore, like this: Our Father Who is in heaven, hallowed (kept holy) be Your name. AMP {God the Father as our “Heavenly Father.”}
John 1:12-13 But to as many as did receive and welcome Him {Jesus Christ}, He gave the authority (power, privilege, right) to become the {adopted} children of God, that is, to those who believe in (adhere to, trust in, and rely on) His name– [Isa 56:5.] 13 Who owe their birth neither to bloods nor to the will of the flesh [that of physical impulse] nor to the will of man [that of a natural father], but to God {the Son – our spiritual Father Who created us as adopted children into a spiritual relationship with God the Father}. [They are born of God!] AMP
Isaiah 9:6 For a child will be born to us {Jesus Christ Who is God the Son.}, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father {This title belongs to God the Son/Jesus Christ because He created us and as such MUST be looked at as our Father, but we do not look at Him nor is He the same as God the Heavenly Father.}, Prince of Peace. NASU
Ephesians 1:5 For He foreordained us (destined us, planned in love for us) to be adopted (revealed) as His own children through Jesus Christ, in accordance with the purpose of His will [because it pleased Him and was His kind intent]– AMP
Galatians 4:5-6 To purchase the freedom of (to ransom, to redeem, to atone for) those who were subject to the Law, that we might be adopted and have sonship conferred upon us [and be recognized as God’s sons]. 6 And because you [really] are [His] sons, God {the Father} has sent the [Holy] Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying, Abba (Father)! Father {Our heavenly Father BUT He did not create us}! AMP
Romans 8:15-17 For [the Spirit which] you have now received [is] not a spirit of slavery to put you once more in bondage to fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption [the Spirit producing sonship] in [the bliss of] which we cry, Abba (Father)! Father! 16 The Spirit Himself [thus] testifies together with our own spirit, [assuring us] that we are children of God. 17 And if we are [His] children, then we are [His] heirs also: heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ [sharing His inheritance with Him]; only we must share His suffering if we are to share His glory. AMP

To me, our “ONENESS” with God reminds me of caterpillar/worm/me as a sinner being inside of a cocoon with God the Holy Spirit reproducing me as a “new spiritual creation” by being “Born Again” spiritually in Christ as a beautiful butterfly/new creature/adopted child of God. Something magnificent and awesome has happened to me/us in this process!!!
2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any person is [ingrafted] in Christ (the Messiah) he is a new creation (a new creature altogether); the old [previous moral and spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new {moral and spiritual condition} has come! AMP

AMEN and AMEN!
