Pamphlet #6209 Genesis KC 3-4

The choice is between light and darkness.

Let us begin, therefore, as the manuscripts declare the perfect work of our Father.

He had just decreed the "Light" to divide the darkness,
to divide "truth" from "judgment".

Genesis 1:4
And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.

[5] And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

The plan of salvation is simple.

He loves His children dearly.

Will they love Him?

The choice is between light and darkness, it is black and white,
and for every negative there is a positive.

[6] And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.
God spoke and it happened, supernaturally, unlike the receding waters in Noah's time.
[7] And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.
[8] And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.
[9] And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.
[10] And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.
We see in this earth age both dry land and sea.

In the earth age to come (Rev 21:1)
He dries up the seas and the earth is restored to its former glory, and then some.

[11] And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
[12] And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
The law of biogenesis states that life can only come from life and that each species reproduces after its own kind. Is it an absolute law?

They tried to teach me in college that all things are "relative"
and they started the process by quoting some fellow named Einstein.

But "momma didn't raise no fool".

I said, "You take all the corn seeds in the world and plant them.

I know some won't grow, and some will grow deformed,
and some will be taller than others, and some will bear more fruit than others.

But I will guarantee you that you won't grow a watermelon from a corn seed.

So much for your relativity. Good day."

[13] And the evening and the morning were the third day.

Genesis 1:14
And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:

Never forget to look up at night, when the sky is clear, and behold the heavenly bodies, for they declare His glory.

Why did God place the stars in the heavens?

To divide the day from the night, yes,
but also to be for signs and for seasons and for navigation and for reckoning time.

Did you know that the plan of salvation is "written" in the stars
and contained within the constellations of the pure Zodiac, including the virgin birth?

Too bad man has to pervert and to pollute every work (and word) of God
to the point where it becomes unrecognizable as His handiwork.

For those who are blessed to own Companion Bibles, appendix 12, entitled "The Stars Also",

will give you a good start on understanding the significance of the heavenly bodies.

There are also other resources available by such authors as E. Raymond Capt, E. W. Bullinger,
etc. The Bible in the stars... it is truly amazing.

[15] And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.

[16] And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.
