This study focuses on Creation and our part in it. The first word of advice here is not to get caught up in semantics. It is not our beliefs, one way or the other, that makes history, history. This applies to the Creation of the world, universe, galaxies and beyond. We do not need to prove our existence by debate of Creation versus Big Bang Theory, nor religion versus science. It is enough that we are here. The planets and other creation are “out there.” The matter of fact is, in a word, matter. Our Grand Creator can animate it, motivate it, synthesize it, orchestrate it, re-create it and abolish it at Will, however it technically first came to be, however long that reality is.
- God is bigger than his creation.
- God is not at the mercy of his creation.
- All Creation is a reflection of God.
- We are made in the image and likeness of God.
- We are animated by God.
In the first Creation account in the Book of Genesis, written by Moses in the wilderness in the year 1513 BCE (which covers “In the beginning” 1657-1513 BCE), Genesis 1:1,2 it says, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep, and the Spirit of God was moving over the face of the waters.”
Notice this is when we started marking time, not when human beings first appeared on the planet. This also does not mean there was no time, space or Creation prior to 1657 BCE. Creation took billions of years to get to that point, maybe more, void of human eyes to see, ears to hear, or brains to comprehend. We have an amazing Generator of Life, who can create from nothing, making something out of nothing. We are magnificent creatures made by God, but even with all our brilliance, inspiration and crutch of technology, we cannot even come close to creating something from nothing, try though we might.
Psalm 33:6 echoes this, “By the word of the Lord the heavens were made and all their host by the breath of his mouth.“ The host of angels, spirit creatures, became animated by the breath of God. This is their God particle; without it, their spirits are lifeless. The original Creator creates by the active and creative force of his Spirit, and by his breath.
John 4:24 says, “God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.” It is God, Spirit, which is breathed life into the angels. This is no mindless happenstance, a fluke of the perfection of order of the universe, the tides of the oceans, nor the miracle of our very next breath. This is a spiritual thing, not a reasoning of the mind, nor a physical reality. It is a spiritual one.
Genesis 2:7 says, ” – then the Lord God formed man out of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and man became a living being.” Did you get that last part? We become animated, brought to life, by the very breath of God. Yes, that was to our first parent, but follow the DNA, and you get to us. We were created from the dust of the earth. Picture this, there we were, a lump of dust on a planet of dust. How are we made in the image and likeness of God? The next thing we know, God himself breathes his own breath/spirit/life into us, our very own God particle. Does the Bible say this? Yes it does, in Genesis 2:7.
All living things on the earth, and the sun, moon, stars, waters, plants, trees, animals, birds, fish, reptiles, insects, everything in nature large and small, is created by the Author and Spirit of Love, our God, in a process termed to be six days. From that day forward, all Creation has been living in the seventh day. It is God’s Creation, with an Alpha and an Omega. To put us back on track after the Fall of Man in Paradise Garden, dealing with the fallen angels transgressing with humans, as our Bible Study next Wednesday will address in Genesis 6, Our loving Father sent us his only begotten, not made, Son, Jesus, the Christ, to be our Savior. There was no other way, left to our own devises, after the angels messed with our DNA. We needed spiritual help for a spiritual problem. We still do.
Do we live forever by our own power, ego or desire? In this present system of things, no we do not. Our very breath returns to the one who loaned it to us in the first place. Our God particle, is just that, God’s. What we choose to do with our breath, how we choose to life in thoughts, words and actions, is up to us, by means of God’s gift of free will. How are we choosing to use our very own God particle?

Heavenly Father, I pray with an earnest heart, full of Love for you, that your Holy Spirit continue to move the hearts, minds and voices of all who visit Enlightenment Ministry, to make us all more compassionate and empathetic to the needs of others, and increase the awareness of our own God particle, your breath which inspired our very life. I pray all this through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
