What happened in The Heart of God The Father before the Times of the World? (2T 1:9; Titus 1:2). God The Father said to Jesus Christ, God the Son: “Sit Thou at My right hand until I make Thy enemies Thy footstool…from the womb before the day star I begot Thee” (Ps 109:1,3).
There are two words which I wish to clarify before we begin:
Womb: Let us leave aside the human understanding of the organ in the lower body of a woman where offspring are conceived and in which they develop before birth.
Let us take another definition as a space or place where something is generated.
Heart: Yes it is the organ that pumps blood through the circulatory system. But, let us understand it as the central or innermost, most vital part of something. One’s innermost character, feelings, and inclinations. One’s capacity for love, compassion, courage or enthusiasm.
Let us examine the verse: “Let Us make man to Our image and likeness, and let him have dominion over the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the air, and the beasts, and the whole earth, and every creeping creature that moves upon the earth” (Gn 1:26).
1. First of all ‘man’ was made by God. Is it not written?: “I have said: You are gods and all of you the sons of the most High” (Ps 81:6). See also how Jesus treated this subject when He said to the Jews: “Is it not written in your law: I said, you are gods? If he called them gods to whom the word of God was spoken and the scripture cannot be broken, do you say of Him whom the Father has sanctified and sent into the world: Thou blaspheme because I said: I am the Son of God?” (Jn 10:34-36).
2. ‘Man’ had to be in existence before God said ‘Let us make man…’ I had said in a previous article that man was created in the womb of Mary in the heart of God the Father in eternity, before the creation of the heavens and the earth. The name ‘man’ was the name given to the ‘begotten soul’ which God created and then after the creation of all things on the earth, God brought this begotten soul into existence as ‘man’ as we now know him in human form.
3. In saying ‘let Us’ God here includes God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost. Therefore it is the Holy Trinity which makes ‘man.’
4. When Holy Trinity says: ‘to Our image and likeness’ then ‘man’ is the fulness of the Holy Trinity at the beginning of his creation on earth. The words ‘Us’ and ‘Our’ of Almighty God, Holy Trinity, is given to the singular entity of man!
5. Man, in the image and likeness of The Holy Trinity, by God’s Imperial gift and authority is given total dominion over His creation: “And God said: Behold I have given you every herb bearing seed upon the earth, and all trees that have in themselves seed of their own kind, to be your meat, and to all beasts of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to all that move upon the earth, and wherein there is life, that they may have to feed upon. And it was so done” (Gn 1:29,30).
6. Man is originally ‘innocent’ like a little child, and Jesus confirmed this when He said: “Suffer the little children, and forbid them not to come to Me for the Kingdom of Heaven is for such” (Mt 19:14). By innocent here I mean that at this moment he is free from all moral wrong and is not corrupted with disobedience or pride, which are the first of the seven deadly sins, because as yet ‘sin’ was not in the world. This innocence implies that he is full of all the virtues, in other words he is totally in the mind of Holy Trinity (1Co 2:16), reasoning as in Him, with his body totally in the Spirit of the Living God.
7. Man is placed in Paradise and has the power to live forever in this bliss, all he has to do is to follow God’s law: “Of every tree of Paradise thou shalt eat, but of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat. For in what day soever thou shalt eat of it, thou shalt die the death” (Gn 2:16,17).
8. As we said above, God gave man the mind of Christ, Holy Trinity, and the authority of Christ as is confirmed in the verse: “And the Lord God having formed out of the ground all the beasts of the earth, and all the fowls of the air, brought them to Adam to see what he would call them: for whatsoever Adam called any living creature the same is its name” (Gn 2:19). How did Adam know what names to call them? Because he was taught them in the heart if the Father in the womb of Mary before the creation of the world.
9. God gave man the gift of prophecy, which is the inspired declaration of Divine Will and purpose. This prophetic gift is first confirmed in Holy Scriptures when it is written: “Then the Lord God cast a deep sleep upon Adam and when he was fast asleep, He took one of his ribs and filled up flesh for it, and the Lord God built the rib which He took from Adam into a woman and brought her to Adam, and Adam said: This now is bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called woman, because she was taken out of man” (Gn 2:21-23). How did he know but by the Divine inspiration and gift of prophecy, which he had in his immaculate state in the heart of the Father in the womb of Mary in eternity.
10. Man walked with God and talked with God face to face in complete confidence and holy familiarity as in the following few examples from Genesis: ‘And God blessed them, saying: Increase and multiply’ (1:28). ‘And God said: Behold I have given you…’ (1:29). ‘And He commanded him, saying…’ (2:16). ‘And the Lord God called Adam, and said to him: Where art thou?’ (3:9). ‘And the Lord God said to the woman…’ (3:13). This confidence and relationship was developed in the heart of the Father in the womb of Mary in eternity.
Now comes my summary of what I believe happened in eternity in the heart of God the Father in the womb of Mary. All of the begotten souls, including you and I, were instructed in earthly living in the vocation to which God assigned us, before we came into our earthly mother’s womb, as it is written: “Before I formed thee in the womb of thy mother, I knew thee: and before thou came forth out of the womb, I sanctified thee, and made thee a prophet unto the nations” (Jr 1:5).
Each and every one of us receive a ‘prophecy’ or perhaps many more ‘prophecies’ as a ‘de-ja vu’. Did you ever wonder why it is written: “But Mary kept all these words, pondering them in her heart…and His Mother kept all these words in her heart” (Lk 2:19,51). I say, that while Mary is the ‘mother of creation’ as I stated in a previous article, and bore in her heavenly womb Eve ‘the mother of the living’, she humbled herself to come to earth after Eve, so that she could give birth to the Messiah Jesus Christ in sinlessness. Notice her words in the Magnificat: ‘Because He has regarded the humility of His handmaid…Because He that is mighty, has done great things in me, and Holy is His Name.’ (Lk 1:48,49). A handmaid is someone whose essential function is to assist. Mary assisted in bringing ‘Salvation’ to the world, and Holy God certainly has done great things in her.
Jesus Himself taught us of this sublime gift in creation when He asked teaching in the temple: “How do the scribes say that Christ is the son of David? For David himself saith by the Holy Ghost: The Lord said to my Lord: Sit on My right hand, until I make Thy enemies Thy footstool. David therefore himself calls Him Lord. And whence is he then His son? (Mk 12:35-37). It is simple, because he (David) was created in the heart of the Father in the womb of Mary before the creation of the world. Therefore David calls God the Son by the Name of Lord, therefore he is the son of God the Son. But in human terms, in the genealogy of man on eqarth, Jesus is the Son of David in the lineage of the Patriarchs. This is true because we were all taught in the womb of Mary, in the Heart of God the Father before the daystar, and before we came to earth through Eve, the mother of the living, who in turn, came from the womb of Mary, the Mother of creation! Amen.
“What is it that has been? the same thing that shall be. What is it that has been done? the same that shall be done. Nothing under the sun is new, neither is any man able to say: Behold this is new: for it has already gone before in the ages that were before us” (Ec 1:9,10).
Jesus said: “Behold thy Mother” (Jn 19:26).
Amen. So be it. Amen!
