Prelude to Light
Where does Infinity ∞ begin and end ?
There is no beginning or ending to Eternity. Infinity will forever leave the finite mind of man stumbling over the unfathomable: For the Almighty with His Everlasting Word of Truth, created all things, visible and invisible. Therefore the incomprehensible Infinite God Almighty reveals through His Eternal Word of Truth that; The secret things (that is the unknowable of the Infinite) belong to the Lord our God, but those things which are revealed, belong to us and our children forever. (See Deuteronomy 29 verse 29.) I AM God, and there is none like Me, Declaring the end (of time) 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: (See Isaiah 46 verse 9 thru 11.) From Eternity's vantage, that which is to be in future time, has already happened. Within His Eternal Wisdom and Foreknowledge of His creation of time, Yahweh God, by His Spirit of Truth, would intervene in time and make known of His Covenant WORD of Salvation, given for corrupted man kind, through the prophetic scripture writings of selected Hebrew and Jewish men of the Almighty's own choosing. (See Psalm 25 verse 14 thru 15,Hebrews 1 verse 1 thru 2.) But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: Which none of the (satanic) princes of this world knew: For had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of Glory. (1st Corinthians 2 verse 7 thru 8.) All things, hidden in scripture, are made manifest in the Wisdom of the Eternal Creator, and His TRUTH is witnessed in His intervention within His creation of free flowing time: For whom God foresaw in the stream of time, He predestined to become sons of God, bearing the Likeness of His Only Begotten and risen Son Christ Jesus. (See Romans 8 verse 28 thru 32.)
God Almighty's WORD of Infinite Power is the foundational Constant that maintains the continuance of His created universe, and without the Excellency of His Eternal WORD nothing, absolutely nothing would exist of this universe created within the Almighty's creation of time. (See Hebrews 1 verse 1 thru 3.) The only Holy Lord God Almighty, the Infinite Creator of all things, including universal time that is outside of Eternity, does not change in the Holiness of His Constant WORD of Power that would set His creation into free flowing motion. From Eternities vantage, the Infinite God Almighty could see within His creation of the free flowing fabric of time, the destructive course of infiltrated sin with its corruption of death that eventuated through His original creation of free thinking beings. God's Personal WORD for the Salvation of man kind had already been determined in the streaming flow of time, even before the foundation of the world, and certainly before the Infinite spoke of the defeat of the crafty serpent of corruption, and before the Almighty's creation of Adam/Man. (See Genesis 3 verse 15.)
Within the fabric of time, Satan, the rebellious deceiver, would corrupt Adam's beginning faith in God through his insidious lie that our first parents would believe, thereby disrupting their faith in the Truth of Elohim's Word. (See Genesis 2 verse 1 thru 6.) With Adam following the lead of his wife, the two of them ignored God's definitive warning about the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, and then Adam, with his own choice, ate of the Tree and thereby sentenced the whole of his being to death. The wisdom of death came into the body and soul of the unbelieving Man and his Woman, and so in God's Wisdom, God's Spirit of Life was removed from Adam, and left Adam/Man to his own choices in his body of death. With death ruling in Adam's body, then the issues of human life from Adam's loins would also be instilled with death that would propagate all of Adam's future generations.
However, the Righteous Lord our God said to the devilish serpent in the garden: The (genetic) seed of Woman/Ishshah shall crush your head, even though your seed (of evil) shall bruise His Heel. (Perhaps His Heel, is referencing the Faith upon which the suffering Messiah stands). In His unfailing faithfulness to His Infinite Word of Truth, the Almighty would protect the genetic seed of Man/Adam through the genetics of Adam's wife that God derived from His creation of the first Man, male and female: (See Genesis 2 verse 21 thru 23.) You would know Adam's wife as Eve; but before the grievious fall of Man/Adam, her name in Hebrew was initially Ishshah, meaning in English Woman, even as the name Adam in English means Man. After Man's fall, and their forced removal from Eden, it was then that Adam changed Ishshah's name to Eve (Chavvah), because she was the mother of (human) life.
God (Elohim) gave His unfailing Word in the Garden of Eden, then Satan, upon hearing God's Word, sought to destroy the integrity of Elohim's Word of Truth through Satan's own wicked angels cohabitating with the daughters of men. (See Genesis 6 verse 1 thru 2.) Satanic wisdom reasoned that if the genetic purity of the generational seed of Woman/Ishshah was corrupted by beings, such as himself, then faith in the Word of God would have failed in Truth to become One with the pure genetic seed of Ishshah/Woman and be birthed as the Son of the first Man, Adam. The future Redeeming Son of Adam would come in God's timing in his creation of time, to crush Satan's head and his power of evil. (See The Further Seduction of Man.)
Nevertheless, within His creation of time, Yahweh the Almighty God of Eternity, by His Righteous Judgment and Mercy, would protect the integrity of His Word of Truth and send to the earth His Covenant Word of Life to be born the very Last Adam/Man. The Last Adam, Jesus Christ as the Bread of Life, would be conceived by the Spirit of His Father Yahweh God into the original genetic seed from the Almighty's creation of Adam, male and female, by way of the generational seed from one of the XX chromosomes of Woman/Ishshah. So then, even before the world was created, Elohim predetermined that His Word of Salvation for man kind, would come forth within universal time, and be conceived by God's Spirit of Holiness into the ovum seed of a Hebrew virgin woman.
God's First Born Son, of absolute necessity, would be born into this world in the unflawed genetic body derived from the first Adam/Man, and in His Incarnate birth, His Name would be called Yeshua/Jesus/God's Salvation. Then Jesus the Son of Adam/Man, being the First Born Righteous Son of God, would, as Man, bring about the conquest of the will of evil that imprisons all of man kind in death. (See Genesis 1 verse 26 and 3 verse 15 and 9 verse 8 thru 9, and Isaiah 7 verse 14.) The innocent Man, Jesus Christ, would suffer death on the cross for the sin's of the world, but in the Power of His resurrection from the dead, the Son of Man would crush the evil head of rebellion, that enslaves all of man kind.
Death, through rebellious unbelief, came by the first Man/Adam: But Faith and Life came by the obedient Last Adam/Man through His death to sin and His resurrection into the Eternal Life of the Spirit of His Father God. From the beginning, the last Man is Yeshua/Jesus, the Word of God conceived in the genetics from the first Man/Adam, therefore, from the Everlasting God, the Holy One of God is Emanuel, God with us. (See Acts 2 verse 23 thru 25.) (See 1st Peter 1 verse 19 thru 21.) Jesus Christ, as the undefiled Word of God, was conceived by the Spirit of His Holy Father God by impregnating the generational ovum seed from Ishshah/Woman of the genetics of the first Adam, and the Eternal Word was born of Man's genetic flesh. In stark contrast to the rebellion of the first Adam, the Last Adam, Jesus/Yeshua had a Son's Perfect Love and Obedience to His Father Yahweh God, the Almighty. Through His trusting Love and Obedience to His Father, Jesus Christ would defeat the violent will of sin and death with His own death on the cross. The proof of Jesus/Yeshua's victory over man's sin and death was seen in the Last Adam's resurrection into the Life of His Eternal Father. Now, with that same Eternal Life of His Holy Father Yahweh God, the Last Man, Jesus Christ, Yeshua haMashiach, secured the right to Life for the sinful soul of man kind through His restoration of a saving Faith in the Almighty's Word of Life that the Eternal God offers to all those believing souls, who in that faith would follow the Christ of God. (See Colossians 2 verse 11 thru 12.) Death came by the first Man, but Life came by the Last Man, for the innocent last Man, Christ Jesus, was delivered for our offenses, but was raised from the dead for our justification. (See Romans 5 verse 17.) To live in Life, the soul essence of man must be born again of God's Spirit of Life.
The Almighty God of creation, would oversee the time when His Own Salvation Word of Life would impregnate the ovum of a true Hebrew woman, who was born in the genealogy of the first Man/Adam; for indeed, God's Eternal Word of Life was birthed as the Second and Last Adam. Jesus Christ, the Son of Man/Adam and the Last Adam would not return to God void of Truth, but would perform all that God's Word of Truth was sent to accomplish. God's Eden Covenant with His Word of Truth would come to fruition in the earth: For in the beginning of time Christ/Messiah was crucified before the foundation of the World: (See Revelation 13 verse 7 thru 8.) For in the end of time itself, God's Eternal Will is to bring forth sons and daughters that would appear in the 'Likeness' of the Glory in His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, the Son of Man/Adam.
Yes! The revealed logic of the Infinite God Almighty is simple, but who will believe the report of His mercy towards us sinners? (See Isaiah 53.) Those who have become wise in heart will continually look to the 'Light of the Infinite God' that enables them to see in the darkness, but the foolish in their heart of darkness will continue to stumble into further darkness. Where does that leave the reader; in the Light of Life or in the darkness of death?
With all that is evident to the seeing eye, the most brilliant of man kind, are all fools without a beginning belief in the Creator of the universe.
