The Character-of-God has been
questioned by many, especially when bad things happen to good people. Who is to blame for the wickedness in the world? Does God really care about the well being of mankind? Is God's will always for our wellness in spirit, soul, and body?
Before man was created, God was in Heaven there with His Angels. Angels are beings that God created eons before He created man. The Angels all worshiped God and there was peace in Heaven until sin was found in one of the Archangels who's name was Lucifer.
This Archangel was the most beautiful of all the Angels, but, his heart was lifted up because of his beauty; This Angel thought himself to be a "god" and desired worship for himself. He began to cause some of the other Angels to doubt the Character-of-God. Deceitful lies and accusations turned one third of the Angels against the Most High God.
The situation got very ugly. Rebellion was found in Heaven. Lucifer became a devil which means accuser and his name was changed to Satan meaning adversary or enemy.
Full blown war broke out in
Heaven. Satan was kick out of heaven and with him one third of the
rebelled against God. Satan was cast down
to earth and the conflict continues to this day
Truth is found in "HIS-STORY," the history of who God is.
The Lord, who is Creator God, continued to do His work. God created a new race different from the Angels. He began with Adam creating his body out of the dust of the ground. Then breathed life into Adam from the very breath of God Himself.
Father God wanted more than servant Angels, He wanted a family. So He created mankind after His own
likeness, in the image of God He created him. He placed Adam and Eve in a beautiful garden on the planet called
earth.There are many facets of the character-of-God. One of the facets can be seen in the beauty of nature that He surrounded man with in the Garden and all over the earth.
God had given Adam dominion
over the earth, and Satan wanted that dominion.
Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. Satan deceived Eve to doubt the character-of-God even while they were still living in the beautiful Garden of Paradise.
The devil, is that old serpent. He deceived Eve using the same old lie that he still uses today. He spoke to Eve and questioned the commands God told Adam sowing doubt in both God's Word and His motives. He questioned whether God really wanted her best?. He attacked the Character-of-God.
Satan's deception lead mankind into sin..As a results of disobedience by one man, Adam, sin entered into the world, and death by sin; So death spread to everyone, for everyone sinned.
Satan became the god of this world system. Death and sin ruled and.wickedness was rampant on this planet. Devils continued to steal, kill and destroy and they continually
blame God for every kind of evil that they are guilty of .
Adam, the Father of the human race, willfully disobeyed God and ate of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. At that moment Adam sinned and fell short of the Glory of God. He allowed guilt and shame to come between him and his Father God.
God search for Adam in the garden but Adam hid himself from God.
God placed the Tree of Life in the midst of the garden so Adam and Eve could eat of it and live forever. Free will had to be given to mankind so we could choose whether to obey God or Sin. The destruction that sin causes can not be allowed to flourish in the Universe forever.
Adam and Eve had to be expelled from the Garden. Love in the character-of-God had to prevent access to the Tree of Life, least sin would reign and evil would destroy for eternity. That broke God's heart, but God had a plan.
The Future for Mankind Looked Hopeless
Justice dictates the wages of sin is death.
Death is the legal penalty for sin and mankind was now lost in sin. The eternal future of God's
children looked hopeless. The character-of-god is pure love and God had planned eternal life in Paradise for His children. But now, it looked as if Satan had succeeded in stealing all of God's
children through sin condemning them to suffer the same fate as Satan himself.
BUT GOD had a plan before the foundations of the earth, nothing takes God by surprise. God made a promise to Eve in the Garden that there would come a man-child, a seed, that would crush the head of Satan.
Absolute Love is God, is the character-of-God:
God sent His Word, our Lord Jesus, His only begotten son, to die, paying the penalty for sin for all mankind so that whosoever believes receiving Him as their savior, Could Live with Him for Eternity.
Jesus said, "I and the Father are one." John 10: 25 to 30
There is no Greater Love than to lay down one's life for one's friends. John15:13
Absolute Love is the
Character-of-God revealed in this promised seed. The enemy did not win, the promised seed was born in the city of Bethlehem.
God gave His only begotten son that whosoever believed in Him would be saved!!! Joy to the world! The Lord is come. Let earth receive her King. Let every heart prepare Him room, And heaven and nature sing!
When the promised seed was born, He began the history of Christianity.
The enemy of God continues even until today to lie to all mankind about the Character of God.
