WHY GOD CREATED MANKIND
After Satan’s rebellion, God planned out another creation, that of man! And He planned to develop His godly, holy and righteous character in him, found so utterly lacking in Satan and his demons. In effect, God planned to reproduce Himself. Man would learn all the vital lessons so that there would never ever be rebellion against His authority and government. Mankind would learn these crucial lessons through trial and error, sin, and the resulting pain and suffering, and these experiences would be recorded as history to be kept in remembrance for all eternity. God’s Word, the Holy Bible is that history book.
Not only did God plan to reproduce Himself through man, He also planned to restore His government on earth, which was taken away by Satan’s rebellion. Presently, Satan and his demons rule the earth, and that is why we experience so much pain and suffering. Though Satan can do only what God allows, God gives him enough freedom to rule the earth so that it is not the way government would function in God’s kingdom. That kingdom will soon be established on earth when Jesus Christ returns as King of kings and Lord of lords with the saints made immortal kings and lords under Jesus, and deposes Satan and his demons.
God wants each and every human being to receive eternal life. He has put eternity (living forever) in the hearts of each and every one of us. [Ecclesiastes 3:11 (NKJV), “He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end.”] God reveals in the Bible that this is not a mere fantasy. It has always been His plan from the very beginning to give eternal life to man. But man must first demonstrate that he really wants to live forever and will enjoy life for eternity.
God has given humans physical life as a testing and proving ground to prepare us to live for eternity and to provide a means for God to determine who qualifies and who does not qualify to receive eternal life.
God’s Kingdom will rule for 1,000 years, ushering in worldwide peace, prosperity, abundance, justice, happiness and joy. Satan and the demons will not be around to influence mankind anymore. Then after the 1,000 years, all of humanity that has died without knowing the real God will be resurrected back to physical life and will be allotted 100 years to decide whether they want to live God’s way or continue to live their old ways. It will still be God’s Kingdom. All humans will experience the peace, prosperity, justice, happiness and joy that they yearned for in their previous lives. Almost all the tens of billions who have ever lived will accept God’s way of life and qualify to receive eternal life as the offspring of the marriage of Jesus Christ with His loyal Church. This is God’s plan of salvation for all of mankind.
To understand more about God’s plan of salvation for all mankind, pictured in God’s seven annual holy days, please read the United Church of God (UCG) booklet titled “God’s Holy Day Plan: The Promise of Hope for All Mankind”, available free at the Church’s web site www.ucg.org/bible-study-tools/booklets.
By creating mankind flesh and blood beings, male and female, God is preparing mankind to rule the universe with Him. That is man’s ultimate destiny, which was the destiny of angels till Satan and the demons rebelled against God. After God’s plan of salvation for all mankind is complete, there will be a new beginning. In fact God has divided the universe among the nations already as revealed to Moses in Deuteronomy 4:19 [“19 And lest you lift up your eyes unto heaven, and when you see the sun, and the moon, and the stars, even all the host of heaven, should be driven to worship them, and serve them, which the Lord your God has divided unto all nations under the whole heaven.”]
Mankind goes through enormous expense to explore space. But God has already planned for man to do that. All each of us has to do is learn to love and obey God, and qualify to become His immortal sons and daughters. He will then allot you and your nation your own planet to work with, and rule, as Lucifer and the angels were originally sent to earth to do. After that, as you gain more experience, you will be given your own planet to work with and rule your own creation.
