When I was a kid and would read Gen 1:1, In the beginning, that is as far as I got. I would ponder what was before “the beginning”. Of course, I did not understand that “beginning” was “time”. God was not in “time”, He was not bound by time, and the clock is not running for God. He made “time” for humankind. Therefore, God has always been even before angels and He exists as an invisible Spirit, always has and always will. Eternal. I personally do not believe anything existed, but God. Then came angels, and the top three angels of which Lucifer was one of the three, was in charge of worship to God. Lucifer rebelled and persuaded one third of the angels to go with him to overthrow God. In Luke 10:18 an account of God throwing satan out of Heaven “I beheld satan fall as lightening from heaven. Well, where did he go? I think, just me, he came to “Atlantis” and set up shop. (Could explain some supernatural happenings in that area?) Gen 1:2 says the earth was “void”. I think just a crusty existence. Then God began to set up His system. A system to gain a true friend. A very workable and very real system. God first made man from the dust, then formed woman from man’s rib. Thus, He had the first male and female on earth. Adam and Eve. This was in the Garden of Eden, remember, lurking in the void darkness was satan. You know the story, man fell transferring dominion that God had given Adam to satan making him the “step father” so to speak. The Bible refers to it as “god of this world” (2 cor: 4:4). Now, we are in a supernatural battle with satan temporarily in charge until God will ultimately take him out and destroy all disobedience in the process., thereby, having Himself friends that chose to be a friend to God. That is what this is all about. God (Spirit) intervened when He impregnated Mary and the man Christ Jesus was born. 1 Tim 2:5 For there is one God (Holy Invisible Spirit which is God), and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; So, when Jesus was born it was God in the flesh 1Tim 3:16, it is a great controversy because it really cannot be understood by man’s natural 2 + 2 way of thinking, it goes beyond that and has to be revealed by God or else we really cannot get the full understanding of One God. Eph 4:5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism, and in the Old Testament, Isa 44:6 Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God. So, if one does not understand the difference in the spirit and the flesh one cannot understand the fullness of the Godhead, the only visibility we’ll see is the glorified Jesus Christ.2 Cor 2:9, For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead Bodily. Col 1:15-19 - 15 Who is the image (Jesus) of the invisible God (Spirit), the firstborn of every creature: 16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: `17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. 19 For it pleased the Father (Spirit) that in him should all fullness dwell; So, God came in the flesh to accomplish His plan.

Jn 4:24 God is a (one) Spirit; and they that worship Him MUST worship Him in Spirit and in Truth. Lord Bless You! The plan of God is very simple. It’s not hard; something He made so simple that it can be revealed to whosoever will receive it. However, don’t let man’s tradition get in your way! Acts 2:38 is the plan of salvation, the plan Jesus and the apostles carried out..
