Before “The Rest”
Have you ever wondered how everything in the world began? I know I have. Some of you could be thinking about it right now. Or have already. When you see those beautiful flowers in the summer do you sometimes wonder how they became to be? Well I’m sure most of you would say from seeds. That is true but were did those seeds come from. Well from other flowers of course. But those flowers were a seed at one time too. And so on and so forth. There’s also yourself. But where did you come from. You say from your mothers belly right. But your mother was also a child at one time too. And her mother was a child too at one time. Many great men have tried to figure out how we all got here. But they could not figure it out. The only place they didn’t check was the BIBLE!!!!!! The Bible is the only real source on how the world came to be. And it starts on genesis 1:1. “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.” Now we are going to move on to how it all began

Now let’s hear a story about a boy who picked up a strange little object. It was shaped like a horseshoe and had a mysterious name on it. The boy kept trying to pronounce the name on it. But it never sounded right. Then one day he decided to pronounce the word differently. When he said that word the horseshoe started to grow in to an archway. He stepped through it and found himself in a foreign country, far across the sea. Day by day he went to many different places, using his horseshoe to take him there. Then one day he wondered how people long ago lived. So he whispered the magic word to it and said he would like visit the days of Caesar and presto in Rome he stepped through there and he was there. Of course it is a made up story. But it does give us an idea. Would you like to see what the world looked like in the beginning of time? Oh you would, alright. Let’s imagine if there was an archway that you could pass through and see what it was like back then. Steady now, be careful what you do. But you decide to go through it. As you go through everything starts to fade away. Like chairs, tables, carpet, radios, TV etc. faces are fading away as well. Light are going dim. It is getting darker and darker. We swiftly speed back across the years. We streak over hundreds of thousands of years in less than one second. Past the time when Jesus lived on earth. Past the time of Adam and Eve. Then you finally end up there. You think wow, who turned out the lights. You can’t see a single thing. But you can hear something. Swishing and gurgling. The sound that water makes. The only thing there is WATER AND DARKNESS. As the Bible says “darkness was upon the face of the deep.” All of a sudden we realize that we are not alone. Somebody is here with us, but who. We know it. We can feel it. Amid the darkness, the emptiness and the loneliness, god is here. The spirit of god is moving “upon the face of the waters.” God is looking upon the world he has created, planning what he will do with it. Suddenly, from somewhere, we hear a voice. Musical, strong, unlike any voice we have ever heard before. It commands the darkness to give place to light. Instantly the darkness vanishes and we can see light. We can see again. Not very far though. Because all around us is a thick mist. But the light is so great after all the darkness. There is no sky, no bright sunshine. Only a fog. Under the fog is water, water,...
