[It is] better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man. (This verse is the exact center of the bible)

The Beginning of the Creation of God

Posted: 24 October 2015

Categories:

This subject is one which was left out of traditional church theology. That is  until this prophet came and began to expound the full meaning of this verse found in Revelation.

Rev 3:14

(14) And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;

This verse is the  only such verse found in the bible, it speaks of the beginning of the One who is the Amen, the faithful and true witness. This declaration that the Amen, Faithful and True witness is identified as the beginning of the creation of God seems to be a paradox. Because we know God does not have a beginning. If you have been following these articles on this Webstie, Paul speaks of Melchizedek, who served communion to Abraham, of whom Abraham gave a tenth of all his gains. Paul speaking of Melchizedek declared Him as without beginning of days and ending of life.

We know from the scriptures God exists before His creation for He is the Creator. When we look at how Paul described this, we go to the book of Colossians. Where Melchizedek was the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature. These verses are not misnomers but clearly tell us how God prepared for Himself a body to dwell in. Notice how clearly Paul wrote all creation were and stil are by Him, that which became visible. By Him  but not OF Him, because this visible being is of the invisible made visible. The closest example to this revelation would be like the comparison of temple veil. The Veil was the partition of the Holy sanctuary and the Most Holy. We know God was there but we could not see Him unless the Veil is taken off. Only the High Priest was allowed to enter in, but once a year can see this Shekinah glory and the mercy seat. The High Priest was specially chosen, without physical impairment or disability, and had to clean and be sanctified by the sacrifice of animal blood, before entering into the Holy place. A rope was attached to him in case he died in the presence of the Holy God.

And that is how we understand why the prophet told us Melchizedek, the Priest of the Most HIgh, was the firstborn in Theophany form and became the only begotten Son..He became Jesus Christ. Ironically, most part of Christendom are still veiled to this revealed truth.

Col 1:15-19

(15) Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:

(16) For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

(17) And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

(18) And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.

(19) For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;

Here Paul and John speaks in the same language. This Amen, this true and faithful witness is His dear Son, the Lord Jesus Christ as we know Him today. We know Jesus did have a beginning as a Man, the only begotten of the Father, and Jesus was called the last Adam, was made a quickening spirit and the second man. Why? Because Jesus like Adam did not come through by sex, there were no male and female union to produce Adam or Jesus, so we know Jesus was the last Adam, there will be no others after Him. But why was He called the second man by Paul? All other man came via the sexual birth, by which birth brought death. Hence Job said, men that are born of women are of few days. Because all birth by the women results in a short live span with death as the end. So you see why Christ has to be born via a Virgin birth, and was made sin for us, to escape this death through the fall of Eve in the garden of Eden. Hence Paul again spoke of this in 1 Corinthians, 15:55, O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? When will the saints get the victory over the grave and death? In the Rapture of course, when we which are alive, shall meet the risen dead and together we shall meet the Lord in the Air, being changed in a moment, in a twinkling of an eye bypassing the grave and death.

Look at the first man Cain;  brought forth by the woman, he was not like Adam at all. He was a murderer, liar, full of anger and hatred, being envious that God did not accept his sacrifice. He definitely was not a son of Adam.  There is no place in the bible that link Cain to be of Adam. The bible identified Cain as of the wicked one. Certainly Adam was not wicked. Adam was called the son of God (please note that no where in the bible, are angels referred to as sons of God, so the sons of God mentioned in Genesis and in Job do not refer to fallen angels at all, unless one take the word angels as messenger. The bible did use the term angels in place of the word messengers and indeed some of the messengers were men. Consider Rev 1:1, Rev 19 and 22.

So these false premises that angels or aliens occupied human bodies are lies and not scriptural. Further, when Brother Branham was presented with this premise, the Lord showed him otherwise, that the sons of Gods referred to in Genesis 6 were the sons of Adam. And the daughters of men, were the daughters of Cain (which even the Vatican knew before all these talks about Aliens). Hence the bible give us these two distinctions in Genesis. So why did the Vatican spend so much resources, men and money to peep into the sky with their powerful telescopes? It was rumoured that some US pilots saw flying objects and that they were looking into faces of men, and that the Vatican held back this story because they wanted to have actual pictures, as was the apparition of Fatimah, in Portugal. But we will study those things in other articles, as this article is about the Beginning of the Creation of God. See, the bible was not meant to be read as a story book, nor a history book, but the Word of God. Genesis 6:4 tells us there were giants already in the land, (out of Cain of course) before the sons of God took the daughters of men to bear children. These children hence did have the characteristics of the giants but some did not but were called renown, such as Nimrod later after the flood (see how the prophet told us their seed were carried through the flood in the wombs of the wives, of Ham and Japheth because Noah was called perfect because he being the sons of God did not marry the daughters of men. And Shem though he was not the firstborn inherited the rights of the firstborn. Shem lived more than five hundred years and saw the time of Jacob's birth whose name was changed to Israel because he wrestled with God and prevailed.

Paul tells us  that there are natural bodies and spiritual bodies, of Terrestial and of Celestial. Take the Person of Melchizedek. Abraham spoke to Him, and He served Communion, bread and Wine (strong drink, or Yayin in Hebrew). Not only that, Abarham saw Him later coming with two other men, and we know they were Michael, the archangel, and Gabriel, who was instrumental in instructing the prophet Daniel and coming to Mary to announce her conception Of (not By) the Holy Ghost.

1Co 15:44-47

(44) It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.

(45) And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.

(46) Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.

(47) The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven.

In other words, Jesus came in a natural body but when He arose, it was a Spiritual body, we called it the glorified body because it transcends all our mental faculties to contact our physical world, that Jesus could appear to His disciples in a closed room, or that He can come and go as and when He would do, such as His appearance and disappearance from the two disciples on their way to Emaus. The glorified body has much more than just our five senses.

On the shore of Galilee, we found Him preparing cooked fish for His disciples and His visage was not the same as the Jesus who died on the Cross. Initially the disciples could not recognize Him in this new body till He revealed Himself to them. Hence the bible said they knew it was Him but no one asked whether it was really Him...because they knew.

Did Jesus before He was known as a Man called Jesus who walked on the shores of Galilee has a beginning? Was He God or was He not God? We know He was the Word, and John said the Word was God, John 1:1.  In 1 John 5:7, There were three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word and the Holy Ghost and these three are one.

We know Jesus could not have two fathers. Because Gabriel told Mary that which was conceived in her was OF the Holy Ghost, which means the Holy Ghost was or Is Jesus Father. So the Father and the Holy Ghost are one and the same. And we know John 1:1 said the Word is God, so indeed, the Father, the Word and the Holy Ghost are ONE. Not three in One or one in three, but ONE. Just as we are body, spirit and soul. You can't separate the body, spirit and soul as individuals, though each has its own characteristics. Some trinitarians are trying to say this verse proves the trinitarian doctrine is true...but if you follow through with the next verse, Verse 8 says there are three that bear witness in earth the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.

See verse 8 clarifies for us that the Spirit, (comma) and the water, (comma) and the blood: they are not one but agree in one.

Notice 1 John 5:7 did not say the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost that they are One, but rather, the Father, the Word and the Holy Ghost....

So we know Jesus before He was a man, was the Word or Logos....Hence we have the following verses :

Pro 8:22-25

(22) The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old.

(23) I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was.

(24) When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water.

(25) Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth:


(26) While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world.

(27) When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth:

(28) When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep:

(29) When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth:

(30) Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him;

And these verses in Proverbs concurred with the same verses I posted earlier of Colossians 1:15-19. Hence the revelation has to come not by theologians but by a prophet. And the phrase,  the beginning of the Creation of God became clear to us and we need not scratch our heads or try to work out any mathematical formula to explain this, because revelation has to come by prophets. Oh yes, there are people who try to define that revelation comes through Christ and we do not need prophets...and they forgot Paul was called to be for that specific purpose to reveal the truth about the gospel going to the Gentiles. Jesus told His chosen 70 disciples to go to the house of Israel only because He had to bear the Cross before the blessings can come to the Gentiles. And Peter was given that vision at the housetop of unclean food, when God prepared him to minister to the house of Cornelius, all gentiles, and indeed when Peter preached the goepel to that house, the same Holy Ghost fell on the Gentiles, and Peter added, who can forbid water, seeing the Gentiles received the same Holy Ghost as they do at the upper room.

Initially Paul tried to preach to the Jews, but they rejected his message and he declared from then on, he would go to the Gentiles. Peter did not visit Rome at all, nor did Peter died in Rome but was the pastor over the church in Babylon. Paul was beheaded in Rome by the Emperor Nero who himself suffered a terrible death. And we know death is the separation from God. Paul went to the arms of Jesus and Nero ended up in hell.

See how a prophet has to come to give out the revelation to the Gentiles, and that revelation indeed comes from Christ. We have the exact verse in the book of Revelation on that.

Rev 1:1-2

(1) The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:

(2) Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.

Clearly John spoke about the Revelation of Jesus Christ which God gave unto him, to show unto his servants (messengers) things which must shortly come to pass, and He (Jesus) sent and signified it by His angel (messenger, a prophet, see who this prophet was in Rev 19 and 22).

And we end this article with the revelation from this same messenger :-


58-0928M THE.BAPTISM.OF.THE.HOLY.SPIRIT_ JEFFERSONVILLE.IN V-5 N-2 SUNDAY_

« 97 † "Then what's the Holy Ghost?" The Holy Ghost is that same Spirit of God dwelling in the people whom He has died for and put their name on the Lamb's Book of Life, which they were one with Him in the beginning. The Scripture said so. Did not Jesus tell them that they were with Him before the foundation of the world? Your minds are blackened and darkened; we all are to those things. But we're just not some little coincident happening here; we are sons and daughters of God in the beginning of the creation of God, and been dropped down here for a witness to witness the grace of God that's shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost. We have an eternal Spirit. And no one--no one... And there's no way to stop it. God's church will be there just as sure as it can be sure.

60-1211E THE.LAODICEAN.CHURCH.AGE_ JEFFERSONVILLE.IN ROJC 493-550 SUNDAY_

« 106 † Now, let's turn now to Laodicea and we'll see what our Lord has to say to us tonight about Laodicea, a Laodicea. All right, the salute to the church:

... unto the angel of the Lord...

The 14th verse to the 3rd chapter of Revelation:

... unto the angel of the Lord... of... Laodiceans write; These things which saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, and the beginning of the creation of God;

Oh, my! We got all... If we had all night on that right there, how the Lord would reveal that to us! Watch!

The "Amen" is the "Last." He's appeared all the way down through, and different things, but here's the last church age where it says, "I am... This is the finish, I am the Last."

« 110 † Now, to show that He was the "First" also, as He was, He's "the beginning of the creation of God." Oh! Do you catch It? See? How could God be created if He's a Spirit? How could He be? He's--He's Eternal! He never was created, He never will be created, because He was God at the beginning. But He that is "the beginning of the creation of God" was Jesus Christ when He was made manifest, when God lived in Him. He is God's creation! Oh, my! See, "The First and the Last; the Amen, the beginning of the creation of God." When God created Himself a body, He come down and lived in it, that's the beginning of the creation of God. See? Oh, isn't He wonderful?

« 111 † Now, we find at the first, He showed His Deity right here, "I am the Almighty! I am He that Was, Which Is, and Shall Come. The Almighty!" To the church of Ephesus, said it three times. Is that right? Comes right on over to the Laodicean and said, "I'm the Amen. I was the First back here, I'm the Last over here. And I am the beginning of the creation of God. Through the church ages that we're to have, you'll learn that I am God, God created in a man form. I'm the beginning of the creation of God!" Amen.

That would make a Presbyterian shout. Just think of it! "Beginning of the creation of God." Now, I... Oh, how I like that, "the creation of God," when God was created, when God was made flesh in Jesus Christ and dwelt among us.

61-0108 REVELATION.CHAPTER.FOUR.3_ JEFFERSONVILLE.IN ROJC 645-716 SUNDAY_

« 128 † Remember a couple Sundays ago we got to it, the big diamond? But it's cut in many different ways to reflect the fire and lights from it. That's the way, "Jesus Christ is the beginning of the creation of God," Revelation 1. Is that right? Then when was God created? He is the beginning of the creation of God. And God is Eternal. Is that right? But when God was created... when a little baby that was conceived in the womb of a mother, a virgin. And she begin to develop these cells within her to bring forth this little baby, that was the beginning of God's creation, "For God was made flesh and dwelt among us, and become Emmanuel, 'God with us,' the beginning of the creation of God."

Then in that great Jewel that come from the dust... because He was made of dust. Is that right? He eat food like I do, He eat food like you do. Which, dust of the body, He become calcium, potash, petroleum, cosmic light, but in Him dwelt Eternal Light. No wonder the wise men said to the Star, "Guide us to thy perfect Light."

They were just reflecting the Light of One perfect Light. And there He was, the perfect Light of God, beginning of the creation of God. Now, in there was He...

« 131 † How did He be able to reflect Hisself back to His stars of the earth, after the wise men saw Him in Heaven, and they become ministering spirits here on the earth? "He was wounded (the big Diamond, cut off) for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquity, the chastisement of our peace upon Him, with His stripes we were healed." What was It doing? Reflecting!

Any man that claims to be a servant of God, that denies Divine healing and His power, is not getting his light from that Diamond, not getting his light from that Throne. Because It's reflecting Him the same yesterday, today, and forever in through the seven stars and the Seven Church Ages.

64-0802 THE.FUTURE.HOME.OF.THE.HEAVENLY.BRIDEGROOM.AND.THE.EARTHLY.BRIDE_ JEFFERSONVILLE.IN V-3 N-5 SUNDAY_

« 316 † Think of it, the Holy Ghost descending upon earth, Jesus, and that holy Blood! Now watch, and I hope I don't go too deep for you, see. The holy Blood that was created by God; the Blood, the Life, the creation of God. "Jesus was the beginning of the creation of God." Oh! You see it? God, made in creation. He was Spirit. The Bible said, "He is the beginning of the creation of God." How did He begin? In the wombs of a woman. Which is what? The woman is not...

317 Like how them blind people can't see the serpent's "seed" right here. See? Eve was put here on the earth, and, before Satan ever touched her, or anything else, God said to them, "Multiply and replenish the earth." That's right, but Satan comes in here. And, if that was Adam's son, then where...

318 Adam was a direct descent from God. And you only take the nature of your parent.

319 And when you're born again, you take the Nature of your Parent, of Heaven. And your Parent of Heaven is the attribute of the Word... Or, the Word is the attribute of your Parent. Then, how can you deny It, for a denomination? My!

I hope you don't miss this. I know it's from God.

« 320 † Jesus. Here He comes, descending; and there was Jesus, the attribute of God.

321 Now, "the woman," she. Watch. God said, "Because they did this," said, "I'll put enmity between your Seed and the serpent's seed." Is that right? And the woman don't have any seed. Did you ever think of that? She has a field, not a seed. See, the serpent had already placed his "seed" there.

322 Then, if the woman doesn't have a seed, she has to remain to have a Seed.

« 323 † You see, through the sexual intercourse here, had brought from Satan, the serpent, which was not a reptile; had legs, 'cause his legs went off of him. He was the most subtle, the only beast that would--would co-ordinate with the woman.

324 A beast's seed won't do it now, and nothing else. They've tried. It won't work. See, the seed life out of a male won't go into a female woman. It won't do it.

« 325 † But that was the closest thing. See, they can't find that specie between a chimpanzee and a man. See, each one, as it's evoluted up, from the birds, and on up to monkeys, and so forth, up to chimpanzee, then there's a "lost." That was the serpent, not a snake; every form is lost from him, because he was cursed.

326 Now, God didn't curse Adam; he might have done the same thing, but He cursed the earth, "thorns and thistles."

327 He didn't curse Eve, but said Adam would be her "ruler." From now on, she ain't trying any preaching or anything, Adam is her ruler. "And all the days of your life, and in sorrow, and you'll bring your life into the earth." But He said, "I'll put enmity between your Seed..."

328 Now, she didn't have any seed, she never did have, so, she had to receive a Seed from some way. God gave her a Seed, not by sexual intercourse, but by creation.

329 Can't you blind people see that's the "seed" of the serpent? Oh, my! Satan got there before Adam; that was the "seed."

330 But she received a Seed. What was it? God Himself. "He was the beginning of the creation of God."

« 331 † Now look when Seth was born, or Abel, he was a just man, from his father. Seth is the same way.

332 Where did that evil fellow come from; murderer, liar? See, see where it come from? It had to be a "seed," because he was a seed; Cain was a man.

333 Oh, where is them blind people at? "God of this world has blinded them." Well, no wonder, Jesus said no man can see it. You see?

You say, "Why don't they see it?"

334 Jesus said one time, to His disciple, "It's given to you to know the Kingdom of God, but not to them."
