The eternal purpose of God was formulated in the heart of God before time began and will ultimately be fulfilled at the completion of the ages. God created the heavens, earth and man to accomplish this purpose. Man was created part earth (dust) and part heaven (the breath of God bringing the life from heaven into man). The eternal purpose of God was to join heaven and earth together in oneness through man (Ephesians 1:9,10; 3:11). Man was created to function in God’s spiritual dimension in order to fellowship and communicate with Him, to understand His mind and heart in everything. The very breath of God-in His image-formed the moral and spiritual composition of man. Dust has no virtue or moral traits of it’s own. It was the breath of God breathed into man that formed these capacities.
The six days of creation unfolds the environment for the addition and advancement of life and is the chronology of the development of the eternal purpose of God. The unfolding circumstances of God’s working in the first creation reveal an elaborate word picture of His parallel working in the new creation. Man’s fall into sin did not catch God off guard, His plan included redemption to restore man to fellowship with Himself and introduce man into His new creation. The Lamb slain before lambs were created. Sin put away before it entered the human circumstance, and your name written in the book of life before you were born; all planned and completed in the heart of God from the foundation of the world.
What a marvelous author the Bible has: His plan stated in the first chapter, even the first verse of the Bible and completely fulfilled in the very last chapter with details interspersed throughout its pages hidden in a mystery.

The author lives with his wife in Georgia. They have been married for fifty-two years and are the parents of twelve children, twenty-six grand children and one great grandson. All of their children were home schooled over a period of twenty-six years. Both parents were active early in the home school movement and were strong advocates of home education.
