English: Feast of trumpets, as in Numbers 10:10, from Henry Davenport Northrop, Treasures of the Bible,’ published by International Publishing Company 1894 (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

In scripture it is written, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” Genesis 1:1.

Do you believe in God, or do you not believe there is a God; and if your answer is no to this question, this adventure will be one you may not wish to take. For you, it will be a trip filled with foolish arguments, an excursion to learn more about what I have to say, rather than being open to the truth. However, to those who believe in God and to those willing to open their hearts, that they may give it a true chance to speak, it is a ride to experience the wonderful truth, concerning what has taken place in our distant past. For me it is an adventure of what was, and what is to be, because for me, it has laid to rest the fears of death filling my soul with joy.

Nevertheless, I understand if the world is unable to grasp its message, or understand my language, as is it is written, “What relation has the dead with the living, for them to understand each other” It is something I must always keep in the forefront of my mind. The world cannot understand, and will not understand, unless they surrender to the lordship of Christ abandoning their human intellect.

1 Corinthians 2:14 But the natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

Faith in God is where the human drama begins. In addition, according to the Bible, whether we chose believe or not, what the entire Bible has so far reported, seem to fit well with our distant past. Moreover, if any man possesses any intelligence at all, he would consider that if it fits so well, there is a great chance it will fulfill the future of our lives. And if what the Bible said is true, there is a lot to fear among those who do not believe, for it speaks of a time in the future when God will one day judge the world.

According to the Bible, it was God who created the known world, and not without purpose. The world created by the hand of God is a world revealing His personality and nature; and from what we have seen, according to the story, God is indeed a good and caring God, and a quality revealed to us after the fall of man.

After the fall of man, a later adventure for us in this story, God had not abandon His creation, but out of His loving nature, made provision to redeem the earth, sending His son to be the redeeming lamb, and the one through whom we may recover from death.

Each day created was to the pleasure of God, He spoke the command; and His angels went forth and out came the fruits of His hand. God saw the works of His hand, and filled with joy, He rejoiced over the day, and blessing the works of His hands, He declared, “It was good.”

How can we deny this reality, indeed the world in which we live is good, but some may disagree, often exclaiming, ‘this life is hell on earth’? The troubles we face today, according to the Bible are just; they are issues we will have to endure because of Adam.

But there are days when we are at rest, although surrounded by evil, enjoying the fruits of the land, those period with friends at party events, or even being among family. In those moments the days are as heaven, there is no doubt in our minds, if life could remain in such a state, it would be good enough for us to call this planet heaven. However, the reality is before us; each day has its ending, and tomorrow is what we fear. ‘What will become of tomorrow, will we ever have days as these again?’ These are but some of the questions we ask, as we go through life. Yet though we are troubled, there is hope, as a still voice beckoned us toward His mercies.
