Let me guess, you clicked this post thinking of Genesis, the creation of the world, the very beginning of the history of God’s work. Was that a right guess? Haha. It IS the beginning, but this beginning means different.
The beginning here means the beginning of the work of God.
I don’t know if I can say this to Jesus, God’s tactic to send Jesus to the world was GAME-CHANGING. It successfully trapped Satan in God’s plan, because Satan killed the innocent person, Jesus. What’s the meaning of that?
According to Rom 6:23, the wages of sin is death. Satan can kill sinners, but he should’ve left the innocent alone because he didn’t have the right to kill him, but he did because Jesus was his great threat. It means he owed God the blood of the innocent and he must pay God by setting the rest of the humanity free from their sins: “Jesus sacrificed himself for the salvation of all people”. You might hear it over and over again if you were a Christian, now you see how it worked.
This game-changing move is called in a holy, biblical way like this: creating a new thing. It’s the beginning of God’s plan to capture Satan and to rule the world that was created by God, but taken by Satan a long ago (finally!). Since this is the important beginning, we’ll take a look at the word of this beginning.

The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” Whoever is thirsty, let him come; and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of life. (Rev 22:17)
Come, don’t hesitate to hear more about it.
