…God And The Angels In Heaven Before The World Was Created

SOME MAJOR EVENTS SHOWING THE RESULTS OF THE HUMAN MORAL LIFE IN THE WORLD UP TO THE CORONAVIRUS, COVID – 19 PANDEMIC WAR EVENT BETWEEN SATAN THE DEVIL, AND JESUS IN 2019 – 2020 ….
THE TRUE FIRST WORLD WAR : THE PANDEMIC WAR IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN BETWEEN SATAN THE DEVIL, AND ADAM AND EVE
Satan began this war against humanity when he invaded the Garden of Eden where he deceived Adamant Eve and led them to look downward away from God, and face him and the forbidden tree, and take his word and eat the forbidden fruit. They obeyed Satan. This was a very grave sin which condemned Adam with all mankind to death which is the absence of Gods life in man. The effect of this sin reaches all mankind because of the time of its commitment when no other person except Adam the original progenitor and representative of all mankind. This sin was infinitely enormous because of the Supremacy of the One it offended and the extent of its effects in the whole world. It was the result of the First World War.
Adam and Eve, representing the whole generations of mankind got expelled from the wholesome world of men in the Garden of Eden. They went into the wide, wild world to cultivate and develop it, but in pain and suffering awaiting ultimate death. Soon after their expulsion, their son, Cain, killed his brother, Abel, thereby multiplying sin on earth. Cain consequently exiled himself from the family to begin to roam about in pains and sorrow; but he must not be killed by anybody.
THE PANDEMIC FLOOD CALAMITY OF NOAH’S ERA – THE SECOND WORLD WAR, CF. GEN. 6: 1, – GEN. 9: 1 – 7.
Sin and wickedness continued to multiply in the whole world in the human communities; and conniption got so much that God decided to destroy all life on earth because of men’s deeds. However, Noah was a good and just man who was keeping Gods word in his behaviour. Therefore, for his sake God planned to save him with his family of seven others – his wife, three sons and their wives; together with a male and female of every animal on earth. All these were to enter a large ship built by Noah and his family. Then, God sent a torrent of rainfall and flood for some days on earth to drown every life except those in the ship. This calamity befell the whole world and only Noah and his family survived it among mankind. This was the second worldwide calamity of massive death that occurred in the world because of the massive wickedness and Godless iniquity of men’s behaviour on earth.
The Subsequent Situation
After the survival of Noah’s family from the third, men continued to live sinfully terming more towards material creatures and the pleasures they provide than towards God who provided them in love for them. Subsequently men gradually continued to spread all over the earth from the regions of the Middle East, and Egypt, Assyria, Babylon.
Nimrod the First Emperor
At a stage of men’s development of the earth, they planned to build a city with a high tower in order to become great men, cf. Gen. 11:4. They were overemphasizing the place of material things in their lives. Subsequently, Nimrod the first Emperor, a grandson of Ham the son of Noah, made himself an Emperor. He was a great builder and scientist, the first of such in the world. He challenged God by attempting to build a great city with a tower to be so high that no future flood could drown it, in defiance of God. But God caused a quarrel among his people and the multiplicity of languages developed, so that the workers could no longer understand or communicate with one another. The project failed and the people scattered into various other regions. The place of this incident got named Babylon, meaning ‘confusion’, hence the term, “The tower of Babel”, meaning ‘the tower of confusion’ in the Hebrew language; cf. ‘The Antiquities of the Jews’, by Flavius Josephus, ch. 4: 1- 119. Thus, the evil of worldwide confusion and ultimate discrimination among mankind was caused by men’s sins of overemphasis and attachment to material things and pleasures.
THE FIRST AND SECOND WORLD WARS
The First and Second World Wars did not reach the whole earth, or humanity and all mankind, like the cases mentioned earlier in this work; or like the Coronavirus Pandemic attack on the whole of mankind, to be discussed later. These are called World Wars only in a relative sense. But all these calamities arose from men’s approach to their regard and use of the material things which God gave over to mankind to develop, manage and enjoy, as a gift to show his love for men.
Mankind spread and developed in the world beginning from the Middle East Region and Egypt and the Mediterranean Region. . Subsequently men spread into Europe, Asia, Africa, North and South America and Australia. They developed Agriculture and settled home-lands or village, towns and cities, and civilization prospered. Education and the industrial and scientific approaches to world development prospered with the expansion of Commerce and Industry.
Soon men mastered the earth as God had told them to do. They exploit the material creatures and cherished the fruits from them. But the pleasures they provided led men further and further away from God until many became atheists or worshipers of various demonic idols and creatures. Many of these human communities engaged in wars fighting for possession of the earth’s riches and material resources.
