In the beginning... God, indeed, created wondrous things, had He not? ... Colossians 1:16a "For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, VISIBLE and INVISIBLE..." Yes, the invisible side of the creation, of what natural man and even science cannot see ... The invisible side of creation was made along with, and at the same time, as the natural creation − and even today is still being used to convert new Christian souls over to God! Also, as we will see, there can be both harmony and perfect balancing in completely naturalizing and completely spiritualizing Genesis Chapter 1 ... 'In the Beginning: It was Spiritual from the Very Start' will explore how that can even be possible ... The main purpose of this book is to not only point out that there are indeed metaphoric teachings within the Christian Bible, but to also show how we can actually trace these said metaphors right to the very beginning of time! Since the topic of metaphoric understandings will also be covered in two other books (in this three part topic within the Seeking the Everlasting Gospel teaching series − see page 4), the ‘beginning' will only be spoken on here, to show folks that this extraordinary idea can certainly be traced back a long, long way; especially since some people feel that metaphors, idioms, parables, and all such like similitude's, may have only come briefly into existence during the early church period − if at all! Or, if some folks have already figured that those things were in there to begin with, their thoughts will simply be strengthened. Finally, it’ll be pointed out, along with other ideas, the differences of both the natural and the spiritual camps of understanding of the Written Word of God. And, again, that will be accomplished by talking about the Beginning...
