AS OUR WORLD CAME INTO EXISTENCE


“Now the earth proved to be formless and waste and there was darkness upon the surface of the watery deep.” — Gênesis 1:2.

W
HILE THUNDER, exploding on to your home, can haunt those who are caught sleeping, tau wonder lasts no more than a few seconds and never hurt anyone. We can not say the same for another type of explosion that occurred some time ago and that, similarly, took all by surprise that lived then. We're not talking about a simple thunder - for more amazing that this could be — we're talking about a catastrophe rare and only seen this happen on the planet Jupiter, our cosmic neighbor in 1995. The explosion happened we're talking more than 60 million years ago, here on this planet and wiped out the dinosaurs and other species of life existing in that era.
   All they were living their lives quietly, when suddenly and instantly, his world began to tremble, seconds after a terrifying explosion affect your world. Although not knowing about it — were irrational — his world had just been 'chosen' by the cosmos to be the target of some "shot of annihilation." This explosion, unlike a simple thunder brought the total annihilation of virtually all life then. The planet burned and boiled by the effect of the impact. How terrible it was! Even today, more than 60 million years later, we just froze in fear and imagine being affected in this way.
A dead world forever
   Most likely, the huge asteroid that wiped out this world, has hit the place we now call the Yucatán Peninsula, in the Gulf of Mexico. There, surely, lies the "grave" that huge asteroid that destroyed a world forever (forever is the same as 'times indefinite'). But what happened to this planet in years — or millennia - ahead? It is very likely that, as many experts try to explain, 'the impact caused the separation and displacement of continents, disturbing the whole globe, causing volcanic eruptions, blocking sunlight and defiling the atmosphere' for hundreds of thousands of years ahead.
   A further purpose of all this, we can visualize, would be that the water, before solid state — ice blocks poles — has been melted and thereby the entire planet was covered by water covering the entire ground habitable and thus annihilating any possibility of life remain in dry soil. Although flood, the waters have caused something beneficial — cooling the planet for future new phase of its existence and sustaining of life.
‘Land ho’!
   The impact was of such size that even in distant worlds among the stars not so close to us, if you would see the result of the massive explosion. They would not have discovered a planet so tiny that were not as devastating as this explosion devastation caused by something comparable to the explosion of millions of nuclear bombs simultaneously.
   Indeed, that's exactly what happened. Intelligences in the vicinity of our galaxy, about 5 million years after that incident, and noted that blast through it could 'discover' that there was a small planet orbiting that star. This served as evidence of the discovery of a planet.
   'Thanks to that explosion,' they said, 'we discovered a planet as small as ours and thus with enormous possibilities of harboring life there.' Hence, in the millennia ahead, began to take soundings. In their research, as the data arrived, they were astonished to find that there was only one planet, but several of them orbiting the tiny star slightly yellow. Eventually it was time for them to pass through that whole cosmic distance, personally, to colonization missions. They used to that, of course, its most modern apparatuses teleportation. Reaching the vicinity of the star, instantly made ​​careful probing in each of the planets and finally reached that they had observed being charred by fire. Realized that he would be the most ideal for their purposes - were perfect location, size and inclination with respect to the star.
Lunar base of the Gods - a reality very easy to be seen
   The initial findings of the planet that did Brown was one that seemed inhospitable world with an atmosphere totally thick volcanic ash and other offensive elements to life. Violent as could be that atmosphere, however, have found what they had discovered in earlier polls: that was right below it - in abundance - one of the key elements to sustain life - liquid water. Mounted both base orbiting the planet as the satellite that orbited about 350.000 kilometers away.
   With time, it was selected and sent three observers who crossed that violent atmosphere. They did it. As they drove, they saw a world steeped in blackness of darkness. It was a world almost totally water only. There was little dry land and yet, somehow, were very close to the water level, yes, very 'compact the watery deep',* which made them be flooded, rocky and volcanic activities listed, there is no possibility some roots of vegetation. On returning to the orbiter, reported: "the dry land is without form and void and there is a thick darkness over the surface of the waters, which are very deep."
Give up early the 'creation of the heavens and the earth'
   Rejoiced greatly with the story (compare Job 38:7), and as time passed, drew all the plans work. Then down to the millions of them in a grand-boat and aircraft landed smoothly on the surface of the watery deep. When looking for that unusual vessel for some distance on the surface of the water — it was the only thing lit up in the darkness — and sometimes, that's what seemed an "appearance", a "spirit" on the surface of the water depth. It started calling that huge naval base "spirit" (“God’s active force”, NWT) — "the spirit of the Gods" that ‘moved upon the face of the waters.’ — Genesis 1:2.
and God’s spírit was moving to 
and fro over
the surface of the waters
   One of the Gods (that's what those were called intelligences) asks his superior: "My Lord, where do we start?" To which he replied: "Well, the order is to 'create the heavens and the earth in six great steps'." And, again, made ​​the first new question: "Yes, sir, we know that, but we will work as a right such darkness?" The answer is simple, dear brother. The first order from above is that 'light will be' the first of six stages. Then the great early work here will be to make the starlight to penetrate the layers of the atmosphere and pass to illuminate the surface of this world, ie we have to fine tune this atmosphere. For this and other grandiose work, however, we have at our disposal, as you well know, something that is older than even these 'deep waters', namely all the wisdom necessary for execution of the work. This, wisdom, is that will guide us as our 'master-builder'." — Compare Proverbs 8:22-31.
   Work has started and, after millions of years, gradually, the planet became a world habitable again. "Thank God" ("God." Hebr.: אלהים ['Elo · him'] Gods), we can say today, "since then, no asteroid has threatened the existence of life that God created." And the planet came to be re-looking blue - as it was imagined before — and full of life again. The 'six days', or 'six steps' they 'created the heavens and the earth', became known much later, to settle the whole story written, as the "beginning" or, the "in the time of their being created, in the day that Jehovah God made earth and heaven" — Genesis 1:1, 2:1 and 4, NWT.
This is the real truth. What we are taught in religions are myths
Dear reader and Bible student. This is the story more real to explain the process before the "created all things" (Ephesians 3:9) here on this planet, as written in the two opening chapters of the biblical book of Genesis. Until proven otherwise, that's exactly how it all happened. Read Genesis, using their “perceptive powers trained” (Hebrews 5:11-6:2), asking to be guided by God's holy spirit and password to believe what God's Word teaches and not what she would like to teach, inflicting the biblical rule of 'going beyond what is written' in it. — 1 Corinthians 4:6.

  * Compare with 2 Peter 3:5: "For, according to the desire of them [the wicked from the days of Peter], this fact escapes them, that since antiquity [yes, from the "beginning"] was heaven, and a compactly land jutting out to the water and in the water, by the word of God"

GOOD NEWS FOR ANGELS SINNERS

In a recent personal Bible study, I was interested in examining what the Bible teach me about the origin of angels, the "sons of God" (Job 38:7) I typed a word in my digital library and the program showed me several entries for Bible literature and the Bible itself, where this word appears. I chose one of the publications to start my search by clicking on the book What the Bible Really Teach? in Chapter 10.

   Once there, read the first two paragraphs of the chapter, whose theme is "Spirit Creatures - how they affect us?" (see cut). Ali says that "getting to know a person usually involves learning something about his family." This has a lot of sense. So it would be great for me to know about the 'family of Jehovah' the angels. 

What is the origin of angels?
   After reading the two questions asked there, I went to two paragraph, which says that the Bible mentions many times these children of God. Hence, very interested by the question "Where did angels come from?" In response, cite here the text of Colossians 1:16, which says: "by means of him all [other] things were created in the heavens and upon the earth."

   Although this text seems to say everything, I stopped to examine it more closely to see, among other things, whether he is actually answering the question. For some moments I thought of two different possibilities, and so I questioned myself, thinking, 'and here is saying that these "other things" that were created by Jesus, "in the heavens", has been anything but angels?' And, 'Is that an example of what I learned from my personal study on Genesis 1:1, this text could you talk of things "created" the heavens from the earth, ie, the "expanse"?' Anyway, the paragraph of the book teaches the Bible Teach exactly what he said 'things in the heavens' are the angels that Jehovah God created through his firstborn Son.
  
Curing any Questions
   To prove if it was really so, I decided to read the entire context and thus address any questions that arose in my mind now. Thus the text of Colossians 1:16 concludes: "the things visible and the things invisible, no matter whether they are thrones or lordships or governments or authorities. All [other] things have been created through him and for him."

   It is mentioned here "the things invisible" and thought, 'It could be angels, but I'm still not convinced, after all, the "expanse" has also "things invisibles" the atmospheric gases, for example!' It mentions "thrones" and other things visible, but then also pondered: 'Here you are focusing "the things of the earth".' I continued reading more, in verse 17 and 18: "Also, he is before all [other] things and by means of him all [other] things were made to exist, and he is the head of the body, the congregation. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that he might become the one who is first in all things;" Here, we can see, nothing can take to complete the information you want.

   We go further, to verses 19 to 22 (see clipping). Here was the answer to my question. The report says that God, through Jesus' sacrificial death, was 'him to reconcile again to himself all [other] things by making' yes, 'the things on earth and the things in heavens'. It says that things were being 'reconciled on earth' were we, human beings. So I thought 'Now everything makes sense, if we humans are the ones that need to be reconciled with God because we are separated from him by the question of sin, then "things in heavens" which also needed reconciliation could not be "expanse" and rather intelligent beings, animated, in the "heavens" of God Himself the angels who sinned'.

Pay close attention to studying!
   So I see that the book Bible Teach is correct in stating that 'the things in heavens' that Jehovah God created by His beloved Son, and to Him are the other thousands of angelic children. Actually, we Jehovah's Witnesses are being properly taught about the origin of angels. As we have seen, this biblical text actually shows us the origin of angels. We now understand that this act of 'creating the angels' was a literal or in other ways. Perhaps a future study Bible I can see that. For now I'm satisfied with what I found here. But. . . hey! Wait a minute! Do not even finish our personal study! I just saw something there that deserves our attention before we finish! Let us read again the text of Colossians 1:19 and 20!:

"Because [God] saw good for all fullness to dwell in him [in jesus], and through him to reconcile again to himself all [other] things by making [with God] peace through the blood [he shed] on the torture stake, no matter whether they are the things upon the earth or the things in the heavens." emphasis mine.

What happened to truth?
   Note that the text clearly says that through the 'blood that Jesus Christ shed', God would be 'making peace' with two groups of creatures, "they are the things upon the earth [we sinful humans] or the things in the heavens.[the angelic sinner]" Then the angels who sinned in there and burners antediluvian Enoch approached them also have the same opportunity that we humans  the possibility of also being reconciled to God through faith in the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ! Does the Association has been preaching this very important information? I do not remember. So let's see? 
   
   I found an explanation of this text in the Watchtower magazine of January 15, 1997, (p. 11, para. 8) which says: Who is this divine peace offering? To all those who exercise genuine faith in Jesus Christ. The apostlePaul wrote that 'God saw good through Christ, to reconcile all things to himself, by making peace through theblood that Jesus shed on the torture stake.' The apostle said that this reconciliation would involve "the things in heavens"  that is, those who would be co-heirs withJesus in heaven. Would also involve "things on earth"  that is, those who would be favoredwith the opportunity to live forever on this earth , when it is brought to afull condition of Paradise. (Colossians 1:19, 20) For the benefit worth the sacrifice of Jesus and his obedienceto God with all your heart, all these could enjoy the warm friendship of God. Note James 2:22, 23  emphasis added.

   I'm shocked, and you? We see clearly that in explanation given by the magazine is no more room for angels in the text of Colossians. 'The things in heaven', now, are the 144.000 anointed and not the angels that 'God created through him [Jesus] and to him'. The text and context of Colossians 1:16-22, however, are quite explicit, there is about the angels and not "joint heirs with Jesus in heaven". So why loads of water "understanding" given to us by the Association is completely different from the biblical text itself and the explanation of the book Bible Teach?

   Do not know about you, dear reader, because in my opinion. . . how much do my personal Bible study, I see strange things in our beliefs as an organization. This is more a case of mistaken teaching that we were taught. Are there others? Most important now is that we believe? As the Bible really teaches, or what we as an organization that they teach? One thing I now know much more clearly: for why Jesus was' preaching to those sinful children. "And what Jesus preached? - 1 Peter 4: 18-20.

What "preached Jesus to the angels who sinned?
      Research Insight on the Scriptures "explains" that Jesus preached objective "to the spirits in prison": 
   In 1 Peter 3:19, 20, after describing the resurrection of Jesus for the spiritual life, the apostle says: "In this [state] also he went his way and preached to the spirits in prison, who had once been disobedient when the patience of God was waiting in Noah’s days, while the ark was being constructed" Commenting on this text, the Vine's Expository Dictionary of Old and New Testament Words, says: "I Ped. 3:19, a likely reference is not good news (no real evidence that Noah had preached to, nor with evidence that the spirits of antediluvian people are actually 'in prison'), but the act of Christ, after His resurrection in proclaiming His victory to fallen angelic spirits." (1981, Vol 3, p. 201) As already mentioned, ke · Rys · OS refers to a proclamation, which can either be good, as also bad, as when Jonah proclaimed the coming destruction of Nineveh. The only spirits trapped in the Scriptures refer to are those angels, the days of Noah, who were 'delivered them to pits of dense darkness" (2 Peter 2:4, 5), which were 'has reserved with eternal bonds under dense darkness for the judgment of the great day'. (Ju 6) Therefore, the preaching of the risen Jesus made such wicked angels could only have been preaching a trial. It may be mentioned that the book of Revelation, broadcast vision to John by Christ Jesus near the end of the first century CE, contains much about Satan the Devil and his demons, and the ultimate destruction of them, and therefore preaching of a trial. (Re 12-20) have used the past tense Peter ("preached") indicates that such preaching was made before writing his first letter Vol 3 pg. 308.

   It is curious that Insight in the Scriptures prefer to believe the explanation of an Expository Dictionary, changing the meaning of the word "preach" to escape the real reason and the message that Christ took to his brothers ceslestiais, namely: a message of 'peace' yes, 'reconciliation'. Will many of them repented and accepted the invitation to be 'reconciled'? Let us not be selfish  Twist and believe that yes!
