Between Alpha and Omega – The plan of creation

In Gods vergeten Woord 9 Schepping 1 Scheppingsplan en Schepper we start to look at the Supreme Divine Creator. As on the new website “Messiah for all” is told we cannot avoid looking at the total beginning of the world to understand how everything goes today and to understand who and what for Jesus Christ is in this world.

Between Alpha and Omega

The plan of creation

Today lots of people talk about Allah or god pointing at Him as being the “Bad Guy” being the cause of all evil in this world. Those people probably have no idea what happened long long ago in the Garden of Eden.

They should know that lots of people do misuse the titles of God/Allah and think that what lots of terrorists do is righteously that what such a god would want. Both the accusers and those who use the title or the name of God to bring horror and terror to people should know that The True God, Allah, the Elohim Hashem Jehovah, knows each individual his or her heart, and shall judge accordingly to what that person has felt, done and wants to behave in the creation of God, handling with other creatures of God.

All people in the world should come to know that The God of the Bible is not such a god who loves to see his creatures to suffer. The God of gods Who is the Maker of the universe and allows all living creatures to walk over the earth or to fly in the air,  is not just great and far away. The Bible presents Him as the Creator, Who created the universe, light out of darkness, many things from nothingness.

He Created out of love and wants to have a proper and good working relationship between His creation. His heart is with it. Many think there are lots of people looking for God, but God is more looking for man that they for Him.

He therefore Lets Himself be found easily. He should not to be sought with difficulty. What is true in other religions: “man seeks God,” the Biblical approach reveals himself as “God is looking for men.” God created man as part of his creation and he made him a lofty goal. But man fails to achieve this goal. As a “solution” introduces the Bible, as the key to God’s plan, the figure of the Saviour, the Messiah, or Christ.

God The Creator

The God of the Bible

The God of the Bible distinguishes himself from the gods of all religions in the fact that He Himself is Creator rather than creation. He has a plan for His creation and therefore interferes with that creation. Unlike in many other religions for Him the fate of man is a  serious matter. He takes the destiny of man at heart.

The beginning of everything.

GOD we are immediately told in the first sentence of the Bible created the heavens and the earth “In the beginning” …

At the beginning of everything there was nothingness, void, no form and darkness. A Voice sounded from the void. It was Jehovah God Who spoke and there came to be. There was darkness and there was light.

“1  in the beginning god created the heaven and the earth. 2 and the earth was without form, and void; and darkness [was] upon the face of the deep: and the spirit of god moved upon the face of the waters. 3  and god said, let there be light: and there was light. 4 and god saw the light, that [it was] good: and god divided the light from the darkness.” (Genesis 1:1-4 Webster)

“6  and god said, let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. 7 and god made the firmament; and divided the waters which [were] under the firmament from the waters which [were] above the firmament: and it was so.” (Genesis 1:6-7 Webster)

“14  and god said, let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven, to divide the day from the night: and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years. 15 and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven, to give light upon the earth: and it was so. 16 and god made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: [he made] the stars also. 17 and god set them in the firmament of the heaven, to give light upon the earth. 18 and to rule over the day, and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and god saw that it [was] good.” (Genesis 1:14-18 Webster)

God is the beginning and He is, figuratively speaking, also the end. In the last book of the Bible, He says:

“I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending”

and He continued that He is the One Who is, was and always shall be:

“who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.” (Revelation 1:8 Webster)

All people should come to know the Spirit Who is behind the Beginning of beginnings and what happened which brought us in our situation today. But they should see that This “I am Who is”, the Alpha and the Omega [the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet] has spoken and brought into being but has also given His Word to bring into being and into ending.

People may think they are very mighty. That was already in the early moments of existence the problem with man. Because of that pride and that will to have all power, man was given power but had to recognise that there always would be the Most High Power, The Almighty God.

In reality, there is obviously no beginning and no end to that Almighty Supreme Being, because he is timeless. If we ask what is so special about the God of the Bible there is to give a clear and unique answer. That we will see in the next chapters.

    There is not, and cannot be, a higher thought or concept than God. Since it is axiomatically true that from nothing comes nothing, and since something is, then something always has been. What is that “something” mind (intelligence) or non-living matter

    God is eternal. He had no beginning and He has no end. When the beginning began, God was already there! “Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever You had formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God” (Psalms 90:2). To Moses God declared Himself to be the eternal “I AM” (Exodus 3:14). (Significantly, Christ affirmed the same thing of Himself [John 8:58]). From His throne in heaven God said to the apostle John on the island of Patmos: “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End” (Revelation 21:6). (Again, of great significance is the fact that Christ made the same claim [Revelation 1:8, 11; 22:13], thereby declaring His absolute deity). “Alpha” is the first letter of the Greek alphabet, “omega” is the last letter. The phrase is therefore a figure of speech employed to describe the eternality of God.

    God is omnipotent (all powerful). To the Hebrew patriarch Abraham God said, “I am Almighty God; walk before Me and be blameless” (Genesis 17:1). Rhetorically, God asked Abraham, “Is anything too hard for the Lord” (Genesis 18:14)? To the virgin Mary the angel Gabriel affirmed, “For with God nothing will be impossible” (Luke 1:37).
  • Why Power Almost Always Corrupts (christopherjmoorewriter.wordpress.com)
    Power has almost always resulted in corruption by those who hold it. From the moment Adam and Eve were tempted in the Garden of Eden when Satan told them they would become like gods right until now when we see politicians, leaders in industry and many others at best avoiding answers and at worst telling absolute lies.
  • Who Wants the Apocalypse? (supertradmum-etheldredasplace.blogspot.com)
    One of the things which was clear was that the Muslims await the coming of the Mahdi, revealed in the hadith, as the messiah who will bring many centuries of peace before the end of the world.The Sunnis and the Shias (Shiites) disagree as to the nature and timing of this Mahdi, but they are in agreement that he will come.

    Some texts state that he will fight against the anti-Christ. One can see the lifting of Christian ideas in these prophecies, which came centuries after Christ and the writing of the book of Revelation, about 100 A.D. The Koran is a mixture of the Torah, the Catholic Bible, and Arabic customs.
