Summary: So God CREATED Human in His own IMAGE. In other words, we HUMAN, have the ABILITY to KNOW THINGS, to make DESCISIONS, and to DISCERN the PURPOSE and PLAN of God. So we can learn to UNDERSTAND His COUNSEL, His PLAN. As we GROW in the KNOWLEDGE of God, He
WISDOM of God
1. What Caused God to CREATE HUMAN?
"What is man that You should think of him, and the Son of man that You should care for him?
For a little while you made him lower than the angels, and YOU CROWNED HIM with GLORY and HONOR. YOU GAVE HIM AUTHORITY OVER ALL THINGS [Subjection Under His Feet, KJV].” (Hebrews 2:6-8, NLT)
Long ago, millions even billions of years since God CREATED the Entire UNIVERSE, it was PERFECT and AWESOME. The UNIVERSE was inhabited by Angels. God set an Archangel on a THRONE, the Great Cherub Lucifer, to GOVERN them and ADMINISTER the KINGDOM of God. This Lucifer was positioned at the very THRONE of God. He was TRAINED and experienced in the KINGDOM of God to ADMINISTER a perfect LAW and ORDER. There was joy, PEACE, harmony and PERFECT LOVE. It could’ve been millions times millions that the entire LIMITLESS UNIVERSE was in PERFECT ORDER. It could’ve been a “Happy Ever After” story. It was a SAD story, it was a TRAGEDY!
Since, God created Angels with MINDS capable of THINKING, REASONING, making CHOICES and DECISIONS with FREE-WILL. Lucifer allowed thoughts of JEALOUSY, envy, GREED, resentment and REBELLION. These NEGATIVE THOUGHTS occupied his heart and MIND! His MIND became PERVERTED and TWISTED. Lucifer made a DECISION to REBEL! Lucifer decided to REVOLT!
Since Angels were CREATED with FREE-WILL DECISION, he persuaded up to one-thirds of Angels in the entire LIMITLESS UNIVERSE. He tried to INVADE and take over the KINGDOM of God. This was the reason why Lucifer was DISQUALIFIED to ADMINISTER God’s LAW. Read Ezekiel 14:15-19 in your own Bible, please. It was in him that INIQUITY was found! It was him who caused man to sin, in the first place! Man doesn’t deserve a PUNISHMENT of an “ENDLESS SUFFERING”. The PUNISHMENT was RESERVED ONLY for Satan and his demons, not man at all!
God casted him out of his POSITION and changed his name to what he became, Satan, the devil, which means COMPETITOR, adversary or ENEMY. Satan became an author of ERROR, EVIL, darkness, DISEASE, decrease, discrimination, DEPRESSION, WAR, defeat, DESTRUCTION and DEATH. This shall answer the “Gap Theory” for Theologians. “And the earth was WITHOUT FORM, and VOID; & DARKNESS was upon the face of the deep.” (Genesis 1:2). Lucifer was also transformed into a dragon (Revelations 12:9, 20:2). Satan, the dragon. caused the UNIVERSE to become DESOLATE and CHAOTIC. Out of millions of Gigantic planets in the UNIVERSE, God CHOSE this TINY, USELESS and WASTED planet called earth. God RESTORED and DESIGNED the planet earth to establish His KINGDOM as the “HEADQUARTER” to GOVERN the entire LIMITLESS UNIVERSE.
On the other hand, the “Absalom REBELLION” pictures the rebellion of Lucifer. Absalom tried to ENVADE the KINGDOM of God through the ADMINISTRATION of King David. In 2nd Book of Samuel, chapter 15, using NLT,
When people brought a case to the king for judgment, Absalom would ask where they were from, & they would tell him their tribe. Then Absalom would say, “You've really got a strong case here! It's too bad the king doesn't have anyone to hear it. I wish I were the judge… and I would give them justice!” And when people tried to bow before him, Absalom wouldn't let them. Instead, he took them by the hand & embraced them. So in this way, ABSALOM STOLE the HEARTS of ALL the PEOPLE of Israel. After 4 yrs., he sent SECRET MESSENGER to every part of Israel to STIR UP A REBELLION against the king. “As soon as you hear the trumpets,” his message read, “you will know that Absalom has been crowned king in Hebron.” He took 200 men from Jerusalem w/ him as guests, but they knew nothing of his INTENTIONS. While he was offering the sacrifices, he sent for Ahithophel, one of David's counselors who lived in Giloh. soon, MANY OTHERS also JOINED Absalom and the CONSPIRACY GAINED MOMENTUM.
Notice how Absalom DECEIVED the people of Israel and gained their hearts. Imagine, the CONSPIRACY took 4 years! Until, the REBELLION exploded! Then after, Absalom thought he won the VICTORY! If we continue to read the story of Absalom’s rebellion, he died in DISGRACE! A SHAMEFUL death!
This method of conspiracy was, probably, used by Lucifer! It could have taken millions of millions of years before Lucifer gained the favor of one-third of Angels in the entire LIMITLESS UNIVERSE! Lucifer, who is now called Satan, the devil, uses this method until NOW! The devil plants NEGATIVE thoughts, NEGATIVE feelings, NEGATIVE emotions, NEGATIVE attitudes and NEGATIVE words, LUSTFUL desires and SELFISH ambition that causes GREED, PRIDE, FEAR, JEALOUSY, RESENTMENT, ANGER, UNFORGIVENESS, etc… It will create, misunderstanding, disunity, COMPETITION, COMPARISON and DIVISION! Satan is the “Father of Lies and CONFUSION”! You should UNDERSTAND that we are FIGHTING against HUMAN, we are FIGHTING against the devil and his demons.
