Creation in six days?
Moses must be joking.
The last week of May featured a much commented event. In the US state of Kentucky a special "Creation Museum" was to open its doors. The initiator, Ken Ham, felt it had to be done to counter the continuing teaching of the theory of evolution.
It is true, one has the impression evolution is a proven fact. Scientists present this theory in this way and in many countries it is told in schools as such. And as the way evolution is presented often leads to the conclusion that God does not exist - everything was/is "evolving" automatically anyway - believers started to react, especially in America.
As believers we do not doubt that God created all things.
But the special group we would call "Six days creationists" (and we don't know whether Ken Ham is part of that group), takes the Bible literally. It believes that God created the world in six days (times 24 hours) as one could possibly read into Moses' Genesis 1, the first book of the Old Testament. We all know this contrasts with the findings of Science, which says that the visible universe is billions and earth millions of years old.
So is the Bible, is Moses wrong?
Not at all. But it's interesting to see what the Lord says in the "New Revelation", His New Word. As far as creation is concerned the Lord of course confirms that He created. On the other hand He confirms strongly the findings of science as to the time question. Not only that, the Lord tells us that the universe and the Earth as well as the sun and all the stars are much, much older than science thinks.
At the same time He tells us that Moses is
Because one must know that what Moses wrote is to be understood spiritually. The Lord says that Moses did not at all describe the creation of the material world in Genesis chapter 1. Moses was highly knowledgeable in the sciences of the time, of the ancient scriptures of Egypt and of course filled with God's wisdom.
Most of all, Moses knew the ancient art of the language of correspondence. Everybody who has read the Bible knows that Jesus often talked in parables, in picture language to make people understand a point.
And Moses did the same. Extensive parts of Moses' scriptures are in the symbolic language of correspondence.
The Lord tells us in the New Revelation in several chapters the significance of Moses' Genesis.
A. Genesis 1 does not describe the creation. It is an allegoric rendering of the principle of development in 6 stages ("days") of a human being, but also applicable to a people or the first Church.
B. Creation of the material universe, the earth and all the stars etc. took billions of years. The "days" of creation stand for long phases, the ones science has discovered over the last centuries.
Jesus is in discussion with several Pharisees. Jesus had explained to them the phased emergence of the universe and its hierarchical structure. Now the Pharisees ask if that was not diametrically opposed to the six day creation of Moses. To this the Lord answers:
[GGJ.01/156.8] Say I: They should be understood and interpreted in their true sense and message.
 In his description of creation Moses is just using pictures that announced mans initial recognition of God, and does not portray the physical creation of Earth and all the other worlds.
He then goes on saying that if one takes Genesis literally it makes no sense.
- Why is the time from evening to morning a "day". That's rather the night.
- The "light" cannot be the sun. Because the sun was before earth.
- As far as the earth is concerned God does not need to "divide" light from darkness. The earth revolves and is automatically illuminated, the sun facing part being lit.
- And then on the fourth day God placed two more lights, one for the day, one for the night. Not only does the sun shine on the Earth continuously, but what happened to the first light? What was that?
And many more illogic points if one
thinks of the solar system.
A second explanation is given by Jesus on another occasion to Cyrenius, governor of Palestine. (GGJ.02/214 on)
And a third explanation - and the most concise one - is found in Great Gospel of John vol. 03.
Mathael, a Jew having previously been thoroughly instructed by Jesus explains Genesis 1 to a Roman:
Moses report of creation has nothing to do with the creation of the world. It refers exclusively to the education of man starting with the cradle until his perfection. But there is also an indication pertaining to the foundation of the Church of God on earth until the present times and on, until the end of the world.
By heaven and earth one has to understand the new human being of the earth right from birth. 'Heaven' stands for the innermost, hidden, spiritual abilities, and the formless and void 'earth' stands for the newborn natural human being, who is hardly conscious of its existence the first phase of man.
Over the years the child reaches self-consciousness, starts to dream and to think. This is the Let there be light in the human being, so that he/she knows that he/she is. - Second phase.
And like that it goes on with all the other days of creation until mans resting phase of perfection. Tell me whether you begin to understand!
Editors note: The text always uses man in the sense of human being.
The detailed text of the abovementioned explanations of Genesis One is available on the download page here.
In the meantime: Please ask your pastor, priest, rabbi or anybody graduated from studies of theology what Moses wanted to communicate in Genesis 1,1-26. And let us have a copy of it (email@example.com).
But please ask before you relate what you just read. What we heard so far is disappointing.
2. todays focus: Judas
Has Judas been framed?
Why did he sell Jesus to the Temple?
You might be surprised!
The story of Judas is rather fascinating. During centuries Judas stood for the everything Christians loved to hate, because had Judas not betrayed Jesus, He would not have been crucified.
Was it Judas's plan to have Jesus killed? What for? A handful of silver coins?
Some 1900 years after these events Christ Himself revealed to us in His New Revelation the truth. And, as the Bible says, the truth sets free.
To make a long story (which you can download) short:
The "Great Gospel of John" is retracing in detail (11 volumes) the three teaching years of Jesus until His resurrection. We have assembled episodes from this huge work, which deal with Judas. Here the person and character of Judas come to life like on a stage. Download it and you will have a totally different picture of Judas.
The Judas Story is available as download from our website here.
3. excerpt - Jesus warns re the ecology
Studying the New Revelation one will find several chapters referring to our time. Either Jesus talking to His disciples about the time "in 2000 years" or in directly talk to us like in the "Sermons of the Lord".

7. overview: The New Revelation
The form of communication differs. God came in the form of angels, priests (e.g. Melchisedek), He used prophets whom He instructed (e.g. Isaiah, Jeremiah, Amos etc.). He gave people visions (e.g. Swedenborg) or revealed His messages in dreams (e.g. Joseph) and He had people write by direct dictation (e.g. Moses).
Communications, instructions and messages did not stop with Jesus. Some churches, unfortunately, claim that Jesus said it all. With Him revelation stopped. Despite the contrary written in scripture.
The New Revelation, God's New Word, was received by dictation. Word by word. Every word of those 25 volumes was dictated to Lorber, Engel and Mayerhofer by the Lord. It took 37 years to finish. Some say it's the Eternal Gospel promised by the angel. It sure contains wisdom for generations of researchers.
The two new commandments Jesus introduced complementing the 10 of the Old Testament are "Love your God with all you power and all your heart" and "Love your neighbour like yourself". And He added, that your enemy also is your neighbour (e.g. Luke 10:27).
Out of the seven Spirits of God
three stand out: Love, Wisdom and Power.
