The true God is most interested in what his hands have done. Genisis 1:1,2,3 says "1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth 2 Now the earth was formless and desolate, and there was darkness upon the surface of the watery deep, and God’s active force was moving about over the surface of the waters 3 And God said: “Let there be light.” Then there was light " Ask yourself, who was God talking to ? The answer to that question is simple actually, after some research. Proverbs the 8th chapter has the answer; verse 22" New World Translation" says " Jehovah produced me as the beginning of his way, The earliest of his achievements of long ago. 23 From ancient times I was installed, From the start, from times earlier than the earth. 24 When there were no deep waters, I was brought forth, When there were no springs overflowing with water. 25 Before the mountains were set in place, Before the hills, I was brought forth, 26 When he had not yet made the earth and its fields Or the first clods of earth’s soil. 27 When he prepared the heavens, I was there; When he marked out the horizon* on the surface of the waters, 28 When he established* the clouds above, When he founded the fountains of the deep, 29 When he set a decree for the sea That its waters should not pass beyond his order, When he established* the foundations of the earth, 30 Then I was beside him as a master worker. I was the one he was especially fond of day by day; I rejoiced before him all the time; 31 I rejoiced over his habitable earth, And I was especially fond of the sons of men. 32 And now, my sons, listen to me; Yes, happy are those who keep my ways.33 Listen to discipline and become wise, And never neglect it. 34 Happy is the man who listens to me by coming early to my doors day by day, by waiting next to my doorposts; 35 For the one finding me will find life, And he receives approval from Jehovah. 36 But the one who ignores me harms himself,* And those who hate me love death.”"

There exist those who will say that those words belong to "wisdom" and they are correct; however is wisdom inanimate and does it need someone to act on it, in order for it to show its power? Notice verse 22 says " Jehovah produced me as the beginning of His way" At Colossians 1, 14-20 we read " 14 by means of whom we have our release by ransom, the forgiveness of our sins. 15 He(Jesus Christ) is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation; 16 because by means of him all other things were created in the heavens and on the earth, the things visible and the things invisible, whether they are thrones or lordships or governments or authorities. All other things have been created through him and for him. 17 Also, he is before all other things, and by means of him all other things were made to exist, 18 and he is the head of the body, the congregation. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that he might become the one who is first in all things; 19 because God was pleased to have all fullness to dwell in him, 20 and through him to reconcile to himself all other things by making peace through the blood he shed on the torture stake, whether the things on the earth or the things in the heavens."

Seems as though both Proverbs and Colossians agree that we are talking about Jesus Christ. Notice how it helps us to understand more about the creation of our universe as well; even though there are many millions of years that have gone by since the beginning of creation; We find ourselves living at the most unique time in history now where anyone who wants to humble themselves and learn more are promised from the originator of life, The one who never had a beginning wants his creation not only to live, but to live forever on this earth in a paradise that is promised.

Understandably there are a lot of unanswered questions that honest hearted people have and there is also a faithful remnant that is helping those, whom love God, to understand the truth about Him and His son.
Jesus said at Mathew 24:45 “Who really is the faithful and discreet slave whom his master appointed over his domestics, to give them their food at the proper time?"

Each one will decide for themselves what they want out of life and there is one important factor that we all will be accountable for, and that is, "am I doing what God wants me to do" no matter how one may feel.

In the beginning was God,
Today is God,
Tomorrow will be God.
Who can make an image of God?
He has no body.
He is the word which comes out of your mouth.
That word! It is no more,
It is past, and still it lives!
So is God.

A Pygmy Hymn.

Understanding spirits and how they are superior to flesh would help everyone that wants to understand , or gain knowledge of The one true God would do well to ask," What does God want me to do ?"

Rev 19:17 "I saw also an angel standing in the sun," - only an angel could do that; and that helps us to understand their superiority over humans. They don't eat food to keep them alive nor do they sleep. Other than that, they are quite like humans, in that they exercise the fruitages of the spirit which are found at Gal 5:22

"On the other hand, the fruitage of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, 23 mildness, self-control. Against such things there is no law."

As people think they are something when in actuality we are just dirt and yet God loves us and wants what is best for us. That is why it is so important to find out what His will is for us, which is why Jesus said at John 17:3

"This means everlasting life, their coming to know you, the only true God, and the one whom you sent, Jesus Christ ".

James 2:19 You believe that there is one God, do you? You are doing quite well. And yet the demons believe and shudder.

2:23 and the scripture was fulfilled that says: “Abraham put faith in Jehovah, and it was counted to him as righteousness,” and he came to be called Jehovah’s friend.

One might want to think twice before they think that God is far away from each one of us. Acts 17:26 says

"And he made out of one man every nation of men to dwell on the entire surface of the earth, and he decreed the appointed times and the set limits of where men would dwell, 27 so that they would seek God, if they might grope for him and really find him, although, in fact, he is not far off from each one of us. 28 For by him we have life and move and exist, even as some of your own poets have said, ‘For we are also his children.’"
