The Happy Beginning!

--Compiled from the writings of David Brandt Berg, GP #2302
The Garden of Eden

WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD IT WAS IN THE VERY BEGINNING!--In the beautiful Paradise of the lovely Garden of Eden where Adam and Eve enjoyed the most ideal living conditions ever known to mortal man! They lived in absolute beauty, peace and plenty, the way that God originally intended for all of us to live!

IN THE PERFECT CLIMATE OF THAT LOVELY PARADISE, THEY NEVER NEEDED SHELTER OR A ROOF OVER THEIR HEADS! In fact, they didn't even need clothes! They were perfectly happy being beautifully nude, fully enjoying life and love and sex and each other just the way that God had planned! It wasn't until after they disobeyed the Lord and fell into sin that they began covering up! (Gen.2:25; 3:6-13)

IN THOSE BEAUTIFUL DAYS THERE WAS NO DANGER FROM ANY POISONOUS CREATURES OR WILD BEASTS. In fact, all of God's Creation was at perfect peace and beautiful harmony with itself. All the various creatures and amazing animals that God made were vegetarian then, and were the friends of man and each other! (Gen.1:30)

ADAM and EVE SIMPLY PICKED THEIR MEALS OF DELICIOUS FRESH FRUIT RIGHT OFF OF THE TREES! (Gen.1:29; 2:16) There was no building, plowing, sowing, reaping, or toilsome labour for the man, and there was no cooking, meal preparation, table setting, dish washing, kitchen cleaning, laundry, clothes mending, or other household drudgery for the woman!--Nothing but loving and playing and tending the Garden and the children, enjoying the beauties and wonders of God's gorgeous Creation all day long, and His personal, intimate fellowship and inspiration day after day, and night after night!

THEY COULD LIE and PLAY NAKED IN THE GRASS WITHOUT EVER HAVING TO WORRY ABOUT MOSQUITOES, ANTS, FLIES, SPIDERS, SCORPIONS, POISONOUS SNAKES or any of the pests that bother us today! Imagine being able to walk barefooted through the fields and forests and swim freely in the ponds and lakes, rivers and streams, without any worry or fear of danger or troubles! There were no stickers, thorns, thistles, itchy grass, weeds, or poisonous plants.--All of these came upon the Earth as part of the Curse after man fell! (Gen.3:17,18)

BUT EVEN TODAY, LONG AFTER THE FALL OF MAN, GOD'S CREATION IS STILL BEAUTIFUL!--And the peaceful and pastoral life out in the country is almost Heaven on Earth, compared to the Hell on Earth of the completely false and superficial environment of modern man's dangerous, polluted and over-crowded cities!

OFTEN WHEN PEOPLE ASK, "HOW CAN I KNOW THAT GOD IS REAL?--Why should I believe that God loves me?", I reply, "Just look at the World that He has made, and you can see that God loves you! Look at the beautiful trees and the flowers!--Look at the sea and the mountains and the sky, all that God has made for you to enjoy! Of course God loves you! Look at the beautiful World He made for you to live in! He didn't have to make it all so beautiful, but He did, just for you!"

LOOK AT GOD'S CREATION!--YOU CAN SEE HIS LOVE! You can feel His Love in the beautiful World that He has given you to live in! Look how marvellous it all is! Look at the endless variety He has made!--Animals, birds, trees, flowers, even people! Unlike man's inventions and his cold and lifeless cities of concrete, steel and glass, where everything is dead and decaying, God's Creation is alive and living, growing and changing constantly!--Absolutely fascinating!

YOU CAN SEE THE HAND OF GOD, HEAR THE VOICE OF GOD and LEARN SO MUCH FROM GOD THROUGH HIS WONDERFUL CREATION! The Bible even says that "He which is invisible can be seen in the things which He has made!" (Rom.1:20) His Creation is His greatest credential, that constantly testifies to the existence of a Divine Designer and Creator!

THIS IS WHY THE DEVIL and IDIOTIC REBELLIOUS MAN COOKED UP THE THEORY, THE FAIRY TALE, OF EVOLUTION!--Because everything about Creation, its perfection, its balance, its synchronisation, its harmony, proves the existence of God! But if you believe the false doctrine of devils, the lie, that Creation somehow evoluted and created itself, then you don't believe in God and His Word and you're calling God a liar and missing the blessing of His Love!

DR. ROBERT A. MILLIKAN, THE FAMOUS ATOMIC SCIENTIST WHOSE EXPERIMENTS and STUDIES EARNED HIM THE NOBEL PRIZE FOR PHYSICS, SAID, "Just as behind the intricate precision of a fine watch there had to be a master watchmaker, so behind the far-greater intricacy of this vast Universe, there had to be a Divine Designer and Creator!" Anyone who uses the least bit of common sense that God has given them can look at Creation and see clearly that it couldn't have happened by accident!--There's obviously a plan and design behind it all!

AND THE ONE WHO PLANNED and CREATED IT IS NOT THE TRADITIONALLY MANUFACTURED GOD THAT SO MANY OF THE RELIGIONS OF MAN TEACH and PREACH!--But He is the genuine Basic Power and Guiding Light of the entire Universe, Who has created and brought all men into being. He is a loving, Fatherly Creator, Who has a kind and good plan and purpose for all of us, and longs to fulfil all of our human needs and aspirations for love, life, liberty, usefulness and happiness!

HE LOVES YOU, and MADE THIS BEAUTIFUL WORLD AS YOUR HOME FOR YOU TO LIVE IN and ENJOY!--And He has given you a wonderful body, mind and heart with which to enjoy it! But you'll never be able to enjoy it to the full without knowing Him, for He has created a special spot in the very heart and core of your life, which will never be fully satisfied or content until it is filled with Him and His Love. In your heart there is a vacancy, a hollowness, an emptiness, that only He can fill.

YOU WILL FIND, JUST AS ADAM and EVE FOUND IN THE BEGINNING, that life's greatest satisfaction and most lasting happiness can never be found by merely enjoying the things which God has made, the wonders and beauty of Creation.--For the true happiness and love that every human heart longs for can only come from knowing and being brought into loving fellowship with the One Who created you, God Himself!

GOD, THE GREAT CREATOR, "IS A SPIRIT" (Jn.4:24), Who is everywhere, all-powerful and all-knowing, and is far beyond our limited human comprehension. In fact, He's too great a concept for us to even dream of! He says "As high as the Heavens are above the Earth, so high are My ways above your ways, and My thoughts above your thoughts" (Isa.55:9), and that "even the Heaven of heavens cannot contain Him!" (1Kg.8:27) None of us can possibly grasp how great God is, how marvellous and wonderful He is, far beyond the mind of man and our wildest imaginations, for He surpasses the entire Universe!

SO TO SHOW US HIMSELF, SO THAT WE MIGHT KNOW HIS LOVE and COME INTO FELLOWSHIP WITH HIM, HE SENT US HIS SON, JESUS CHRIST. Jesus was like a picture of God to show us what God Himself is like.--And that picture is a picture of Love, because all Jesus did was talk about Love and show Love and live Love. Then finally, in love, He gave His life for you and me so that we could have God's Love, forgiveness and free gift of Eternal Life if we will simply receive Him into our hearts. (Rev.3:20)

BUT JUST AS ADAM and EVE WERE GIVEN THE MAJESTY OF CHOICE, THE ABILITY TO CHOOSE TO DO GOOD OR EVIL, so you also have been given free will, and you don't have to obey the Lord, or receive His Love into your life! If the Lord had wanted robots, He could have made everybody love and obey Him, but He has given us the majesty of choice!

WILL YOU CHOOSE TO RECEIVE GOD'S LOVE?--If so, you can have all of the beauty, peace, fulfilment and joy that God originally planned for man in the Garden of Eden! In fact, He'll bring the Garden of Eden right into your own heart, a Paradise that no one can ever take away from you! The only way you will ever get back to the original freedom, sinlessness, perfection, beauty, liberty and openness of the Garden, is to get back to perfect fellowship with God through knowing His Son, Who is "the Way, the Truth and the Life!" (Jn.14:6)

JESUS WILL FORGIVE and CLEANSE YOU OF ALL OF YOUR SINS and make you pure and perfect in God's sight, just like Adam and Eve were before they fell! All you need to do is sincerely pray this little prayer: "Lord Jesus, please forgive me for all my sins. I believe that You are the Son of God and that You died for me. I now open the door of my heart and I ask You, Jesus, to please come in and give me Your free Gift of Eternal Life! In Jesus' name I pray. Amen."

Tess and James Arendt
James & Tess Arendt

My name is James Arendt. I was raised in the Hegewisch neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois, served in the USAF from 1970 to 1974, and became a full-time missionary for Christ living 40 years in Japan, 3.5 years in Russia, and a few months in other countries such as Finland, Poland, Estonia, Latvia, South Korea, Taiwan and mainland China where I also served the King of Kings, Jesus, as an Ambassador for His Kingdom. My full bio.

If you like this website, you can show your appreciation by sending me a gift toward my support. My wife Tess and I moved from the island of Guam USA in June 2023 to the city of Allen in the province of Northern Samar, one of the poorer provinces in the Philippines. My only work is maintaining my websites, Deep Truths, and James Japan which costs me $300 per year now. And Tess is ministering to the local people giving them regular Bible Studies in three groups, children, teenagers and adults.

You may like my James Japan site as well because it covers subjects that are not covered in Deep Truths such as things like the Climate Change Hoax and the COVID-19 death-jabs.
