Located in the first chapter of Romans is a not so well understood verse (twenty) that pretty much tells "Us" that science and religion do not necessarily disagree; and that in pure science "We" are more likely to learn greater truth than we ever would at a street corner church. So be prepared to learn about what really happened "In The Beginning".

The following message is based on Spiritually Revealed Truth, Science, and substantiating Scripture.

This message is only meant to be
"Spiritual Food For Thought". However, I personally believe it is "The Truth".

Isaiah 14:12-14
12 How you are fallen from heaven, day-star (Lucifer or Satan or Human Nature), son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, who laid the nations low!
13 You
(Satan or humanity; you) said in your heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of Yahweh; and I will sit on the mountain of congregation, in the uttermost parts of the north;
14 I will
ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High (but only as a shadow of His power and authority, not Like Him in Righteousness).

Revelation 12:9,13
9 The great dragon was thrown down, the old serpent, it that is called the Devil and Satan
(human nature), the deceiver of the whole world. It was thrown down to the Earth, and its angels (demons: unrighteous thoughts) were thrown down with it.

13 When the dragon
(Satan or human nature or humanity) perceived that it was thrown down (from Heaven) to the Earth, it (ultimately) persecuted the woman (the seed of Abraham or the nation of Israel/Jacob, Rev. 12:1) who gave birth to the male child (Messiah Yahshua).


Note: The physical and Spiritual (Faithful and Righteous) lineage of Messiah Yahshua began with Adam & Eve, and ended with Joseph & Miryam (Mary). But the Nation of Israel (Jacob) and specifically the tribe of Judah is "The Woman" as this prophecy is one of national importance.
Obviously Mary was never persecuted, and her memory is now identified with idolatry by the Roman christopagan churches of this world.

It should be obvious that Satan
(metaphor for the source of human nature) was and is, as represented or existing in natural man, is far from total stupidity. It is a mindset (human nature) that is far more experienced than that of any single man and it has had millions of years to perfect its perverted logic and unrighteous propaganda, but the energy of its intellect has been focused on "Self". One might say that Satan (mentality of humanity) must be stupid to rebel against Yahweh, but this is actually a lack of wisdom and understanding. Wisdom is knowing how to use ones intellect, and Satan (source of human nature) is too "Self" absorbed to be truly wise. However, it would be very unwise for anyone to think that he or she is too clever to be deceived by Satan (human nature). Do not try to match wits with Satan (source of human nature) without Yahweh's Holy Spirit to guide you. Anyway, the point is, Satan (a metaphor for human nature) did not say (allegorically speaking) that it would make itself "The Most High". It (the nature or mankind) said "like the Most High". Satan (nature or mankind) wasn't so stupid as to believe that it could actually be "The Most High"; but, once it was discovered that Yahweh had a Righteous "Plan" for human beings that did not include "Human Nature"; A "Plan" that would ultimately defeat and remove forever the "Human Nature" residing inside of humanity, and replace it with "YHVH's Nature" or the "Holy Spirit". That is when the Spiritual Wars began.
So, what is that plan, and does it have a title? Yes, "The Plan of Salvation".

Job 28:28 (see Proverbs 4:7, Proverbs 9:10 and Psalms 111:10)
28 To man he said, "Behold, the fear of the LORD, 'that' is wisdom. To depart from evil is understanding."

James 3:13-18
Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show his deeds done in gentleness of wisdom by his good life.
14 But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your heart, don't boast and don't lie against the truth.
15 This (false) wisdom is not that which comes down from above, but is earthly, sensual, and demonic.
16 For where jealousy and selfish ambition are, there is confusion and every evil deed.
17 But the (true) wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceful, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.
18 Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.

Now let us consider what physical evidence there is that has been discovered from the original creation of the universe and Earth until now. Physical evidence that scientifically suggests that animals, man like creatures, and early man killed in order to survive, just as they do now. In other words, prior to the flood there was a previous world and prior to that world there was another world in which "Survival of the Physically Fittest" was the "Law of the Land". Since the dinosaurs, and since the flood of Noah's days "Survival of the Fittest" has continued to be the "Law of the Land." And yet Yahweh, and His "Proxy" Magistrate, "Messiah Yahshua", never taught
"Survival of the Physically Fittest." The "Instinctive Will to Survive" is human nature or Satan's Nature. It is the greatest form of "Self" (sin) and is, also, known as "Self Preservation". We, also, know that Satan (HUMAN NATURE) is and has been the (metaphorical) "Prince of this World", and as such is the spirit of discord among the physically living, and the fallen angels.
However, Yahweh and Yahshua have always taught survival of the Spiritually Righteous (YAHWEH's NATURE) even if physical death was a necessary part of that lesson.

Matthew 5: 38-44 (Does this sound like survival of the physically fittest OR of the Spiritually fittest?)

You have heard that it was said, 'An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.'
39 But I tell you, don't resist him who is evil; but whoever strikes you on your right cheek, turn to him the other also.
40 If any man would go to law with you and take away your coat, let him have your cloak also.
41 Whoever compels you to go one mile, go with him two.
42 Give to him who asks you, and don't turn away him who desires to borrow from you.
43 "You have heard that it was said, 'You shall love your neighbor, and hate your enemy.'
44 But I tell you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you,

Yahweh created an inhabitable ("Kuwn" or orderly") and perfect (not vain or "tohuw") universe and Earth from emptiness ("Bohuw"), and then it became ("Hayah") void, formless, and chaotic, because of The Nature of Unrighteousness (human nature). One might ask, "Why would Yahweh allow this?" Because it is for righteousness sake that Yahweh allows us all (angels and man) to expose our true nature. For this reason we were all created free agents!

"In The Beginning"


Genesis 1:1-2

1 In the beginning GOD created the heavens
(H-8064: Shamayim; visible atmosphere, solar system, universe) and the Earth (H-776: erets; Earth, dirt, elements).
2 The Earth 
(H-776)  became (H-1961: hayah; to become) without uniformity (H-8414: tohuw; chaotic or without purpose), and empty (H922: bohuw; emptiness or devoid of LIFE); and darkness (H-2822: choshek; darkness, adversity or evil) was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit (H-7308 & H-7307: Ruwach; Mind or "Spirit of Yahweh") of GOD was hovering (Strong's #7363: Rachaph; brooded or meditated) over the face  (H-7440: paniym ; surface) of the waters (H-4325; waters of LIFE).

Isaiah 45:18

18 For thus says Yahweh, Who created the heavens, Who is GOD, Who formed the earth and made it, Who has established it, Who did not create it in vain
  (H-8414: tohuw; chaotic or without purpose), Who formed it to be inhabited: "I am Yahweh, and there is no other (Again Yahweh states that He is One, and not a trinity).

So here we can plainly see that GOD created the heavens and The Earth, not formless and in chaos, but set them up with stability, structure, orderly, and with purpose. We can now be so bold at this point to say that GOD created the heavens and the Earth in "perfection", as he created the first (morally aware) humans we have come to know as Adam and Eve. Here it seems necessary to point out that throughout the Bible, we are taught that GOD doesn't create things in a state of imperfection - when things become "imperfect", there is always another force at work, making this happen (ie: man, satan, human nature, fallen angels, etc...).

So, in going back to Genesis with this precept, we can now better understand the first two verses of the Bible. In verse 2, the original Hebrew for the English, "without form" , in the King James Bibles is the same word, "tohuw" found in Isaiah 45:18. and the original Hebrew for "void" is "bohuw", meaning "empty waste" or "emptiness".
If the original creation was being described in verse 2 (and it was), the statements in Genesis and Isaiah would be contradictory (can't be both orderly and chaotic at the same time), which is not an applicable possibility for the word of GOD.

Now having the knowledge that the word "was" OR "hayah" in verse 2 means "to become" or "became", the seeming contradiction becomes harmonious. so, a better explanatory translation would have been:

Genesis 1:1-2 (Corrected)
1 In the beginning GOD created the heavens and The Earth in perfection.
2 The Earth then became without uniformity, chaotic, and devoid of LIFE; and darkness
(unrighteousness) was on the face of the deep. And the Righteousness Seeking Spirit of GOD deliberated over the surface of the waters of LIFE.

We can now consider the contrast of the Earth today and the Earth past to what will become another re-creation of a Future Earth; after Yahweh and His Future Children establish their "Coming Kingdom" on Earth without Satan (the influence of human nature).

Isaiah 65:17-25 (Prophecy of the Future Kingdom of Yahweh "On Earth")

17 For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth; and the former things shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.
18 But be you glad and rejoice forever in that which I
(Yahweh) create; for, behold, I (Yahweh) create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy.
19 I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my people; and there shall be heard in her no more the voice of weeping and the voice of crying.
20 There shall be no more there an infant of days, nor an old man who has not filled his days; for the child shall die
one hundred years old, and the sinner being one hundred years old shall be accursed.
21 They shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them.
22 They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree shall be the days of my people, and my chosen shall long enjoy the work of their hands.
23 They shall not labor in vain, nor bring forth for calamity; for they are the seed of the blessed of Yahweh, and their offspring with them.
24 It shall happen that, before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.
25 The
wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the ox; and dust shall be the serpent's food. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, says Yahweh.

Again it is plain to see that Yahweh is re-creating The Earth into a Righteous dwelling place, wherein no one or any animal "Kills to Survive;" even so, "How are we to choose Righteousness if we are not placed into a world wherein we can receive the knowledge of Good and Evil, and then be given the opportunity to choose good over evil?
True Love for Yahweh can only exist when Good is chosen over evil!

Obviously no small amount of time went by between Genesis verse 1 and verse 2, and that the earth in verse 1 is not described the same in verse 2.
Understanding this, we might as well call what happens onward from verse 3, "The Re-creation", instead of lumping this into what most Bible students call the "Creation".

By the way, hasn't science always told "Us" that "Life" originated in the WATERS
(of LIFE), AND that "We" were made of the "Dust" (elements; ie. carbon, calcium, hydrogen, oxygen, etc. . .) of the Earth.

Just something to ponder.

Galatians 4:16

So then, have I become your enemy by telling you the truth?
