To understand God’s choices for us we must get a grasp on how God views creation.
According to Scripture, God is “The high and lofty one who inhabits eternity.” Isa 57.

You will note here that God literally lives as eternity itself, God is wall to wall eternity, no end no beginning.
At some point BEFORE creation was begun the godhead decided what would happen in every “Motion of creation” from the beginning of “time” to the end of “time.” (Gen 1:31 “And God saw everything that He had made and behold, it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning the sixth day.” and in Prov 3:19 “The LORD by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens.”)

Creation is “the act of making, by new combinations of matter, invested with new forms and properties, and of subjecting to different laws; the act of shaping and organizing; as the creation of man and other animals, of plants and minerals.” As Heb 11:3 says: “Faith convinces us that God created the world through his word. This means what can be seen was made by something that could not be seen.” Remember that “Time” is absolute or it’s relative; absolute time is considered without any relation to bodies or their motions. Relative time is the sensible measure of any portion of duration, by means of motion. It was a creation of God and will have an end one day soon (Rev 10:6 “And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:”), it was given to man to give him perspective on eternity and the Duration or continuance of God’s existence without beginning or end.

From our viewpoint of finite time we can see that God is better equiped to lay our lives out before him and tell us what to do and what not to do! God sees our existence as if it were a “time-line layed out on a drawing pad” with each personal decision we have made and will make, every pitfall, bad choice and every good decision. Our whole life is being viewed from heaven in detail, our past, our present and the yet future.

Ecc 3:11 “He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.”

Of this verse Clarke’s Commentary said “God has deeply rooted the idea of eternity in every human heart; and every considerate man sees, that all the operations of God refer to that endless duration. And it is only in eternity that man will be able to discover what God has designed by the various works he has formed.”

It was God the Father and the Will he spoke….

(John 1:1-3 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and without Him not even one thing came into being that has come into being.”) plus the Spirit of life from God

( Gen 1:1-2 “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth; and the earth being without form and empty, and darkness on the face of the deep, and the Spirit of God moving gently on the face of the waters,….”)

that decided together every aspect of what would transpire through out time from the very atom’s to the thought you just had… (2Peter 3:8 “But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.”) in time. We NOT God are limited and controlled by time.

God filled Limited “time” that he designed with his “Unlimited Will” (His will is defined as what his heart says must take place to make his creation run effectively, his will is his word which is his BOND to us, what it says STANDS in eternity NOT what we think it means! He released his Word (Will) through the Spirit of creation to form the world in perfection….in the beginning.

Creation had NO flaws whatsoever UNTIL MAN TOOK THE WRONG PATH AND SINNED. {Note that the bible says that sin is like a “personal entity” in Genesis 4:7 “If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door.” The Hebrew here indicates that sin is something that lies in wait to attack like a person hiding in the shadows or as a crouching slave doing the bidding of his master.

The spirit of Sin is a like a virus that has entered into creation at the core of its D.N.A. structure and like a worm that has burrowed into our existence to take captive and enslave all of God’s perfection. The ‘God’s Word’ translation says it best:

Gen 4:7 “If you do well, won’t you be accepted? But if you don’t do well, sin is lying outside your door ready to attack. It wants to control you, but you must master it.”

From God’s perspective his creation has been marred and destroyed by “Sin” what would you do if something had entered your house and raped and destroyed all of what you loved and provided for all your life? Would you let it continue? Would you intervene? I would!

So why do we think God any different when he attempts to change the course of his own creation through Christ? Does he not have that right just as we have the right to change our circumstances for our family?

God’s choices are always based around how to deliver US from sin, our enemy is sin not God. Sin that is interwoven with our personal souls. This is his highest goal, to deliver us from ourselves! Just to understand that God is thinking of my existence in every action he takes is to put all else in perspective!
