“And I stood upon the sand of the sea.
And I saw, coming up out of the sea,
a Beast with ten horns and seven heads,
and upon his horns were ten crowns,
and on his heads were names of blasphemy. . . .
And all the inhabitants of the earth shall worship him,
whose name is not written, from the beginning of the world,
in the Book of Life of the Lamb who was slain.”
Revelation 13:1, 8
Moses said that God determined the boundaries of the nations of earth according to the number of His people, Israel (Dt. 32:8). This means that God determined the boundaries of the nations in the way that was in the best interest of His people. And as with all other things God determined, He made that determination concerning the nations’ boundaries long before He even raised Israel up as a nation. Likewise, our names were written in God’s Book of Life before the foundation of the world. This means that our names came first, and then God created everything else in preparation of bringing us here to live.
In God’s heart, we who belong to His Son came before the stars and the planets. Now, do you think God love us, or what?
