I have been finding and seeing a little 3 letter word in English that is suddenly becoming very important to me.
It’s the word “the“.
Do you ever think about that tiny yet ever so important word?
Is there a difference between “a car” and “the car”? Or between “a doctor” and “the doctor”?
How about “a store” and “the store”?
I think you get the point. One could be any but if the word “the” is there, it is a specific one that all of us know.
It is “the” one and there is no other like it.
With that thought in mind, look at the following verse:
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth Gen 1:1
The original Hebrew word for “God” is this one which is translated as “Elohim”.
Sometimes we are even told this word is plural meaning “Gods” as in a joint creation. This could make sense because are we not co-creators of the new and true Earth coming in Revelation?
This is the point where I start asking “how this is possible?” (you may want to skip this part!)
Maybe Gen 1:1 is actually referring to that and we are still “in the beginning” now? You can also see what is being created. “The Heavens” and “The Earth”.
Also, God is not inside time at all, is he? I suspect what he calls “beginning” may be vastly different from what we do. Maybe there are multiple “beginnings” but only one “The beginning” (like the one word used one time in 1 Chronicles 16:7)? Is it possible there are more than one “generation” or version of “The Heavens” and “The Earth” as well? Genesis 2:4 KJV
Imagine if in our current world, we are only a very small spec of dust of God’s entire spiritual family?
However, that isn’t what I wanted to share today.
Sorry, my mind runs all over like a wild stallion when it gets excited. It even jumps the fences and I have to run after it at times.
Ok, he is back now. Let’s continue.
In my in-depth studies of God’s original and precise words he gave us, I stumbled upon another word that is very similar to the one used for “Elohim” or “God” in Genesis 1:1.
I found it very shocking once I really saw it. It is this word.
This word first appears in Genesis 5:22 when referring to Enoch. It also appears in parts of 6 during the time of Earth’s judgment and then again with Noah in Genesis 6 and 7.
Do you see the difference between these two words?
Can they be the same thing?
If they were, wouldn’t God be lying? Unless something can be two different things at once which I don’t believe is possible in the highest realms of the Spirit.
I believe these two words can’t be referring to the same thing or “God” would have used (and has to use) the same word. He can not lie about anything and this is very good. We can trust in his very specific Word he gives us.
So, what could this mean? Why does one say “God” created and one says “The God”? What is this revealing to us?
You may want to ask yourself those questions. Is it possible we are uncovering how this current world was actually created? Maybe exactly who it was made through?
Ponder this verse:
in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God 2 Cor 4:4
Who is the “god of this world” according to Paul? Could he be the very one who offered the “kingdoms of this world” to Jesus? After all, they would have to belong to him first before he can give them away, wouldn’t they? Let’s look at Luke 4:5-6 where they are offered to Jesus.
And he led Him up and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. 6 And the devil said to Him, “I will give You all this domain and its glory; for it has been handed over to me, and I give it to whomever I wish Luke 4:5-6
Did Jesus dispute that with the devil that they were his kingdoms to give away?
Could “the devil” have been the one that the most high God used to create this world and then turned it over to him to manage and run? This could disturb us or even cause us to fear until we see these verses in Matthew 4:10, Col 1:15-17, and Col 2:10 Please pay very close attention to the specific words Jesus uses.
Then Jesus *said to him, “Go, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and serve Him only.’” Matt 4:10
Who does it say that Satan’s God is? Is it possible that Satan himself was placed into darkness under law?
He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. 16 For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him. 17 He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together Col 1:15-17
and in Him you have been made complete, and He is the head over all rule and authority Col 2:10
Looks like Satan definitely reports to someone and does exactly what they want. Maybe there are HIGHER purposes here that we simply can not see from the view of a brain and body of darkness?
We have nothing to fear, do we? We are in great hands.
I just have to ask… “So, who is Satan then?”
This may be a real stretch, but is it possible that the spiritual being we call “Satan” is merely how Jesus himself appears to us from the point of view being trapped in a body and mind of darkness under law?
Some things to ponder and ask the Lord about.
