It was a perfect day, an ending to a busy
week, when the elder made a replica of
All was given to him -- control and power --
the very attributes someone else strongly
He communed with the elder in the cool of
They journeyed in the garden filled with
succulent, juicy, luscious fruits, along the
green scenery interlocked between the
At the turn of another cardinal point, they
could perceive the fragrance of the
heavily-scented yellow flower abloom the
crystal-looking grounds creating a sharp
contrast to its background. It's full of
kaleidoscope of butterflies reflecting the
elder's glory in that form.
Always eventful time they spent together.
The replica of the elder named all the animals.
He functioned in a scope in similitude to the elder.
Another replica of him was made for him,
fashioned from his bone.
Their souls cleaved to each other.
One became two in one day.
From some where came the fellow who
coveted control and worship.
Although, his core has been eternally
corrupted, he still emits a certain beauty
and dazzling brilliance. His tongue was
sweet, and eloquent.
He deceived the second, and control
passed to him.
Two became nothing, and fell into the
shadows where death lurked.
Death bit and held on to them, transferring
a mortal venom to their core.
The fellowship with the elder ended.
Two in the shadows became alone
The power monger was happy, and he
ruled with an iron hand.
He gave the scarb-filled death passage
from the underworld to the real world.
Life began to evaporate. Surely, he was
far too stronger than life.
All forms of life were corrupted with
the sting of death
The plants started to misbehave, the seas
started to pass their boundaries, creatures
felt the pangs of death!
They screamed in agony and pain, while
the fallen controller laughed.
Their pain was his pleasure!
The two toiled.
Two became four, four became eight,
eight became hundred.
Geometric progression set in, and the
earth became populated.
The elder gazed on to his replica
who has lost his glory.
And to his descendants.
The fallen was bold, and he went to
the presence of the elder whenever
the elder called for party or a solemn
assembly of his sons.
Such audacity! He rode on the authority t
hat was passed to him.
Only if he knew.
That the elder had a plan.
He created time, he already knew what
he would do before the events played out.
He waited for the right moment to restore
He wanted to walk with them again in
Men found different ways to commune with
the elder: they'd talk to stones, trees, water,
carved images etc.
They longed for fellowship.
They were created to fellowship with the elder,
that is who they are!
Still, they got it wrong.
The curse of death had to be broken by
a man like them, and by one with pure
The elder loved man so much,
he decided to find a legitimate way to
He came to the midst of men in the form
of a man.
His pure blood had to be shed.
Without the shed of blood, there's no
remission of sin.
The elder died, came face-to-face with
the man called death.
What a glorious day.
The earth stood still, as its tilt where it
revolves upon froze!
The physical earth became empty of the
sons of the fallen, as they all ran to the
underworld to witness a great victory
from their fallen master.
On the other side of the coin, the sons of
the elder watched from above.
He wrestled him, and broke him forever
He moved on to fallen power monger.
The fallen cowered before the beaming
light of the elder.
He was defeated and perpetually disarmed.
The sons of the fallen stood in awe and
amazement, yet hatred oozed out of them.
That's who they are, and they can't help it.
The elder is back and alive forevermore.
He restored men to himself, and he did
much more than the beginning: he gave
them his own type of life-- zoe.
These God-kind of men now walk in
dominion over all, and fellowship has been
restored for ever more.
Yet we wait longingly to go back home.
In due season we shall, yes we shall.
Romans 5:18-19 NIV
18 Consequently, just as one trespass resulted
in condemnation for all people, so also one
righteous act resulted in justification and
life for all people.
 19 For just as through the disobedience
of the one man the many were made sinners,
so also through the obedience of the one
man the many will be made righteous.
The elder -- Jesus -- wants a fellowship
Just come as you are.
