MYSTERY OF THE AGES
before ALL ELSE-the CREATOR of all. Angels were
created prior to the earth. What God reveals strongly
implies that matter had never existed before the original
creation of the earth-that the entire
physical
universe
was brought into being at that time.
God's Purpose for Angels
So the angel potential was to take over the entire
universe-to improve and finish the billions of physical
planets surrounding the uncountable stars, many of
which are SUNS. The sun in our solar system is merely an
average-size sun. Some that we see as stars are actually
many, many times larger than our sun. Our solar system,
vast beyond the imagination of most minds, is only a
part
of our galaxy, and there are many galaxies! In other
words, the physical UNIVERSE that the mighty God
created is
vast beyond imagination!
How GREAT is the
GREAT Goo!
He intended angels to have a vital part in the final
creation of the endless universe!
(But God may not have then fully revealed this
awesome potential to the angels, for one third of them
set out to take it from him by force, without first
qualifying.)
For this far-reaching purpose, God established his
GOVERNMENT on earth over them. The administration of
the GOVERNMENT OF Goo over this globe was delegated to
the super archangel-the great cherub Lucifer.
Bear in mind that even the holy angels and
archangels-including this super cherub Lucifer-of
necessity were endowed with ability to think, to reason,
to form attitudes, and to make choices and decisions.
As explained previously, God started this Lucifer
out with everything going for him. He sealed up the sum
of wisdom, beauty and perfection. He was PERFECT in all
