    To answer you Jo's,Please read Isaiah 55:8,9 and Romans 11:33,34. You cannot fanthom the nature and work of God.And God didnt put man on earth with Satan.Satan was overthrown from heaven due to his pride onto the earth.Read Isaiah 14:12-14,Ezekial 28:15-17,Rev.12:7-9.On earth he deceived Adam and Eve and sin originated which result in death and which means the separation between God and Man.In creation,God spoke and His Word brought those spoken things into existence.So everything,seen and unseen things were brought into existence by the Word of God.This word is Jesus Christ whom Paul said everything was created by Him and for Him.Hence we humans,been His inheritance,He became one of us to redeem us from sin and bring immortality to light.He accomplisd this upon his death and resurection when he defeated Satan who had the power over death-Heb.2:14-15,Rev.1:18.Now upon His return,he will punish Satan and those who refuse to obey him by sending them to eternal destruection.He will however glorify His Saint and we will assume His nature and be like him.He wl take us to heaven and there we will be with him forever.2Th1:8,9,1Jn.3:2,3,1Th.4:16-19,1Cor.15:51-54.Pls read all versus.
