 08A.   Is There A Divine Plan Of Creation?


Throughout history, questions constantly move man. Man has always sought the answers to the fundamental questions of life: "Who are we and why are we here?" Why do we exist? What is our destiny? Why were we created? Do we just exist for a short time and then disappear forever? What sets us apart from the animal world? What makes us different from any of the other living creatures?

Knowing about his origin and about the reason for his existence are important things that everyman must know, be he rich or poor, learned or illiterate, wise or fool.  This is the knowledge that frees man from thoughts of power, fame, riches or wisdom and that leads him to striving for a worthy existence dedicated to the Almighty. 

08A.1   Is there a divine plan of creation conceived by the almighty?

In Genesis 1:24-27, this is how the Bible account for the creation of man and animals:

24. Then God said, "Let the earth bring forth living creatures after their kind: cattle and creeping things and beasts of the earth after their kind"; and it was so.
25. God made the beasts of the earth after their kind, and the cattle after their kind, and everything that creeps on the ground after its kind; and God saw that it was good.
26. Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth."
 27. God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. (NAS)

Man must ponder and realize:

  • That man and animals were created separately by God, so we are very sure that man did not evolve from apes as what many people would like to believe. 
  • That man was created by God as superior to animals. In fact God purposely made man to rule over all animals on earth.   
  • That man was created by God in His own image, point to the fact that God created man for a certain purpose. 
  • That man did not just came about to live here on earth without any reason at all. 

Yes, there is a divine plan conceived by the Almighty God, for the creation of man.

Let us study the words of God written in the bible that we may be able to comprehend the purpose of God in creating us. Let us come to know His plan while we still have a chance to change the course of our life and live in accordance with His will and become worthy before His sight.
