Confusion abounds concerning Elohim’s reasoning for the Creation Narrative; with much brevity, this is what the Holy Spirit proclaims in His word…
The Father ordained the Gospel before Time began in response to the rebellion that manifest in His Kingdom initiated by an anointed cherub angel; this, as the Father commissioned the Son (John 3:35) to procure elements from the unseen Spiritual Realm and fashion same into matter that can be apprehended by life constrained by Time and physics (Hebrews 11:3; Genesis 1; John 1; Hebrews 1; Colossians 1); hence, the creation of our physical Universe, this Earth, our complex genome, for cause with rapidity as a repository for a rebellion having manifest in the Kingdom of God where nothing impure is permitted to exist (Revelation 21:27); therefore, Elohim (Genesis 1:1) removed that rebellion and placed same within this temporary Realm of Time to be dealt with apart from the Kingdom and lessen the destruction therein; this, while dealing with the Evil One who initiated said rebellion as this EVIL is partially constrained by Time and physics.
The previous 6000-years of horror is demonstrative of the work of the Evil One as our Elohim demonstrates to His faithful angelic creation the ramifications of disobedience/sin/defilement and this experientially relevant demonstration will act as a bulwark against future rebellion in the Kingdom (for both angels and redeemed resurrected human kind) subsequent the destruction of this Universe by fire (2 Peter 3:10) as free will remains extant in the Kingdom by necessity, the New Jerusalem.
Our Creator is currently using the New Covenant’s Gospel of Grace to destroy the works of the Devil (1 John 3:8b) and redeem back to Himself a rebellious and stiff-necked people i.e. human kind through self-less love first pictured in Genesis 3:21 and fulfilled 4000-years later at Golgotha outside of Jerusalem with the words “It is finished” (John 19:30).
As the Holy Spirit has said, the Gospel was ordained “before Time began” as the methodology of destroying the works of the Devil (1 John 3:8b) NOT through arbitrary force but through selfless love that only Elohim Himself truly possesses and demonstrates through the Son, Jesus Christ; an agape love that the angels struggle to fully comprehend.
“The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the Devil.” 1 John 3:8b
