The creation of Calvary.
The Father spoke into the very air and space which He created, forming a great ball out of absolutely nothing. Wrapping His Fingers around it, He scooted it several thousands of miles over to the left and placed it in direct proportion to the sun He had created just moments before.
“This is my favorite out of all of the other planets I created… this is the one I want to use.” He stared at it with a sense of satisfaction, knowing that all He had made was good and perfect. Scanning it over He was trying to decide what to make first – deciding on light and darkness, then the skies, seas, and lands. Next He spoke all different forms of plantlife into existance – trees, grass, flowers, bushes – everything was beautiful… even the roses were very perfection, marred not by even the slightest hint of a thorn or blemish.
Looking back towards the endless space He had created just days before, God began to speckle the darkness with stars – all different shapes and sizes, but all with the same purpose: to light up the space in which they were placed. The moon was tossed among the stars, perfectly placed in direct proportion to God’s special handiwork – the world.
“That just about does it. Now I want to create something to enjoy this beautiful place that I’ve made…” And with that, every animal imaginable began scampering through the meadows and the woods, the oceans were filled with creatures big and small. A lion and a small lamb made their introductions to one another beside a small grassy patch not far from a bed of lilies.
“This is good!” The Creator stared at all that He had made, scratching His head – something was missing. “Ah, there must be someone to have dominion over all this… someone like Me… but not Me.” And with that, He reached down near a willow tree and grabbed a handful of loose dirt. Shaping it in His Hands, He formed what He named “man” – for it was made in His very Own Image; and with one small breath into man’s nostrils, he lived.
God watched with pleasure as man opened his eyes and blinked vigorously as his eyes adjusted to the bright sun. Slowly sitting upright, he turned his head from side to side to take in all that was surrounding him. Animals had gathered around this new creation as he struggled to stand to his feet.
“Your name is Adam… and all this is yours.”
Looking over all tha He had made, He folded His arms with a puzzled look on His face. “Something is missing…something… but what…” He scanned the whole world over again and again, pausing for a moment to study the man and the woman He had formed not so very long ago. “Oh yes…” His countenance fell slightly. “I need one more mountain – not too tall, but tall enough to be seen from a distance…” He looked over the Middle Eastern area of land, “There… that is the place it should be.” He scooped up two handfuls of dirt and formed the small mountain. “Calvary. that’s what it shall be called.”
He glanced sadly at the small mountain before him, “All it needs now is a tree – a thick, sturdy tree – for it will have much to bear when the time comes.”
Adam watched as a tiny sprout began to grow up from the ground.
“Take good care of that, my child… it will one day serve a great purpose. It will help bridge a great gap that will one day be between heaven and earth.”
