John 1:1-3(NIV)—In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning.
Genesis 1:1 (NIV)–In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
Genesis 1:26(NIV)—Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over the creatures that move along the ground.
The verses above show that Jesus was with God from the very beginning and He is God. He is the I Am. He was, He is, and He always will be. There was no beginning to measure, He just was. God created the heavens and the earth and that is how we began. Man can be measured with a beginning, but we don’t know how long God existed, forever before and forever after. He is infinite and He always was. The “us”, “in our image”, and “in our likeness” God is referring to Himself, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit—otherwise known as the Holy Trinity.
God’s existence was dark and empty, there was nothing in existence until God decided to make the universe, then he chose to create a place for people to live and He called it earth. Scientists don’t believe in this, they have a theory that the universe “just happened” (Big Bang Theory) or “evolved.” I’m sorry, but that sounds more absurd than having faith that the Word of God is true and believing in God. God created the heavens and the earth, universe and sea. We would never have been in existence if God didn’t create us.
Everything in the sea, on the earth, in the sky, universe, and heavens is His masterpiece. He loved the thought of having man, and then woman, to fellowship with. This really shows how important we are to Him. He created us for His pleasure.
Just think, if Adam and Eve never sinned, we would not be here. It would have just been them and God communing forever and ever. God gave them the gift of ‘free will’. When they chose to eat from the Tree of Knowledge that God forbade them not to because the serpent, Satan, and his only means of existence—the liar of all and the tempter– convinced Eve that it was all right. That is the sin that brought the human race into existence because in Genesis 3:16, God told the woman that she would bear children. Adam and Eve were banished from the Garden of Eden in Genesis 3:23.
After God created the heavens and the earth, angels were created and good and evil existed from the beginning. Satan wanted to be God and was thrown out of heaven. So he existed on earth to tempt Eve and after she bit of the fruit she gave Adam the opportunity to take a bite of it and he chose to, knowing it was wrong and in rebellion to God and His only rule.
That is how we were created. Not from being evolved from a monkey as man tried to confuse non-believers. God is the only Creator here. He created monkeys and He created people. Monkeys are smart, but not as smart as people. God created people to be above the animal kingdom, not the same. He can do that because He is our Creator, God. Everything is possible with God.
