It is in our human nature to have the desire to be wanted and needed. When we have these feelings and they are fulfilled we are happy; when we do not have them fulfilled we become sad. Why do we have this nature? Well it goes back to the day of Creation by the God Almighty.
In The Beginning…
Some people believe in evolution and others, like myself, believe in Creation. I am not going to take evolution into consideration today because everything has happened for a reason. God was lonely a long time ago. Some believe millions of years ago and others thousands of years ago, but He decided to create the Universe. He created the Earth, the water, the animals, and man in six days. He even could tell that Adam, man, was lonely and created woman, Eve. God has feelings and that is why we do as well.
Genesis 1- 2:7
1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was[a] on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.
3 Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. 4 And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness.5 God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day.
6 Then God said, “Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.” 7 Thus God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament; and it was so. 8 And God called the firmament Heaven. So the evening and the morning were the second day.
9 Then God said, “Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear”; and it was so.10 And God called the dry land Earth, and the gathering together of the waters He called Seas. And God saw that it was good.
11 Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed, and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in itself, on the earth”; and it was so. 12 And the earth brought forth grass, the herb that yields seed according to its kind, and the tree that yields fruit, whose seed is in itself according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 13 So the evening and the morning were the third day.
14 Then God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years; 15 and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth”; and it was so. 16 Then God made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. He made the stars also. 17 God set them in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth, 18 and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19 So the evening and the morning were the fourth day.
20 Then God said, “Let the waters abound with an abundance of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the face of the firmament of the heavens.” 21 So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that moves, with which the waters abounded, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 22 And God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.” 23 So the evening and the morning were the fifth day.
24 Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind: cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth, each according to its kind”; and it was so. 25 And God made the beast of the earth according to its kind, cattle according to its kind, and everything that creeps on the earth according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.
26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all[b] the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28 Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
29 And God said, “See, I have given you every herb that yields seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food. 30 Also, to every beast of the earth, to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, in which there is life, I have given every green herb for food”; and it was so. 31 Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
2 Thus the heavens and the earth, and all the host of them, were finished. 2 And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. 3 Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.
4 This is the history[a] of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens,5 before any plant of the field was in the earth and before any herb of the field had grown. For the Lord God had not caused it to rain on the earth, and there was no man to till the ground; 6 but a mist went up from the earth and watered the whole face of the ground.
7 And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.
He gave us all we needed when He created Adam and Eve, what has gone wrong.
A Story In The Holy Bible That Did Not Happen On Earth
When the Earth was created Heaven and Earth were perfect, but with time change happens. Lucifer, “mourning star”, sinned in Heaven and was cast down to Earth. Now this implies that Creation had already happened. So it could have happened on day eight or hundreds, even thousands of years later. We just do not know. What we do know is why Lucifer was cast out of Heaven and what he did on Earth to cause sin.
Lucifer was cast down from Heaven to Earth because he was full of pride because of his beauty, wisdom, and perfection. He was and no longer is known as Lucifer he is now Satan, “adversary”.
Isaiah 14: 12-17
How you are fallen from heaven,
O Lucifer,[a] son of the morning!
How you are cut down to the ground,
You who weakened the nations!
13 For you have said in your heart:
‘I will ascend into heaven,
I will exalt my throne above the stars of God;
I will also sit on the mount of the congregation
On the farthest sides of the north;
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds,
I will be like the Most High.’
15 Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol,
To the lowest depths of the Pit.
16 “Those who see you will gaze at you,
And consider you, saying:
‘Is this the man who made the earth tremble,
Who shook kingdoms,
17 Who made the world as a wilderness
And destroyed its cities,
Who did not open the house of his prisoners?’
Ezekiel 28: 11-19
11 Moreover the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 12 “Son of man, take up a lamentation for the king of Tyre, and say to him, ‘Thus says the Lord God:
“You were the seal of perfection,
Full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.
13 You were in Eden, the garden of God;
Every precious stone was your covering:
The sardius, topaz, and diamond,
Beryl, onyx, and jasper,
Sapphire, turquoise, and emerald with gold.
The workmanship of your timbrels and pipes
Was prepared for you on the day you were created.
14 “You were the anointed cherub who covers;
I established you;
You were on the holy mountain of God;
You walked back and forth in the midst of fiery stones.
15 You were perfect in your ways from the day you were created,
Till iniquity was found in you.
16 “By the abundance of your trading
You became filled with violence within,
And you sinned;
Therefore I cast you as a profane thing
Out of the mountain of God;
And I destroyed you, O covering cherub,
From the midst of the fiery stones.
17 “Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty;
You corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendor;
I cast you to the ground,
I laid you before kings,
That they might gaze at you.
18 “You defiled your sanctuaries
By the multitude of your iniquities,
By the iniquity of your trading;
Therefore I brought fire from your midst;
It devoured you,
And I turned you to ashes upon the earth
In the sight of all who saw you.
19 All who knew you among the peoples are astonished at you;
You have become a horror,
And shall be no more forever.”’”
Ezekiel has a message. The Son of man is Satan. God sends Ezekiel a message telling him that Satan was perfect one day, then he changed. God found violence in Lucifer and cast him down from Heaven. He became evil.
It is like yin and yang. Where there is good there is evil. I have pondered this since I became a Christian when I was 12 years old. Can good exist without evil and can evil exist without good? It took me over a decade to figure this out and accept it. In Chemistry there is up to eight electrons on an element. An electron like Lithium (Li) is unstable and can give up an electron to combine with another element. An element like Argon (Ar) is stable and will not combine with another element. Now elements like Carbon (C) can go either way because they only have 4 electrons. Now you may wonder where I am going. God is like Argon. He is full of good electrons. Lucifer was like Carbon he had a choice, had strong good elements around him, but went the wrong way. We are like Lithium from our first day we are born. The one electron we have is Faith. We need to attract some electrons like us to build stronger and as we get stronger we will become stronger than Satan. The reason being we may build strong enough to have seven electrons and still feel weak, but God can give on of His electrons to get us through the hard times.
Are We All Wanted?
If you ever think you are not wanted then think of God, pray to God, read your Bible. He wants all of us. He does not want anyone not to go to Heaven in the end. If you think He does not want you that is the devil deceiving you. There are many days I feel alone, unwanted, then I think of God and I feel like I am needed again. Everything that God does gives me peace. It does not matter rather it is rain or shine, snow, fire, flowers, birds, or spiders it all touches my soul. I have even accepted death. When I know a person and I know they are saved and going to see God I am sad and happy. I am sad they are no longer with me, but I am happy they are in a perfect place, no longer suffering on Earth. Do you believe in the afterlife? Do you believe in Heaven and Hell? It is true rather you believe it or not. Have you been saved in Christ? If you have not do you wish to give yourself onto Him? if the answer is “Yes” please say this prayer:
“Father, I know that I have broken your laws and my sins have separated me from you. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life toward you. Please forgive me, and help me avoid sinning again. I believe that your son, Jesus Christ died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and to do Your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”
