THE CREATION is described in the oldest and most reliably copied text of the ages, the Scriptures; starting with the Torah (the Five Books of Moses), it is also referenced in the Prophets, the Psalms, the Writings, and in the Renewed Covenant (New Testament). In Genesis (Bereshit), which means “in the beginning,” the text first describes the Creation within 7 one-day segments. It is that precise recording of each day’s creation that is the focus of The Creation Gospel. The spirit God, who is first recorded by the name Elohim in Genesis, directed His Spirit in a plan calculated to bring the physical vessels of creation into unity with His Holy Spirit. The 7 spirits of God that were prophesied to rest upon the Shoot of Jesse in Isaiah 11 are the same spirits of the Creation, yet they are one creative and Holy Spirit.
The 7 spirits upon the Messiah are placed within a specific day of creation. One activated within that boundary, that spirit will continue to work, not in isolation from, but in unity with the other spirits. From this unity, Israel derives the statement of faith and greatest commandment, “Hear O Israel, the Lord your God, the Lord is One.” The second commandment is like unto it, which is to love one’s neighbor as himself. As the 7 spirits of Messiah Yeshua (Jesus) work together in the life of the believer, not losing a specific identity as the Spirit of Wisdom or the Spirit of Power, yet finding greater effectiveness and peace in unity, so we do not lose our identity as individuals in the Body of Messiah, yet we find greater creativity, effectiveness, and peace in unity.
The Israelites received feast days (moedim) and a holy Sabbath when they received the everlasting covenant of the Torah. The Creation, however, transmitted the knowledge of the feast days and holy days that preceded the making of the covenant with Israel. Even Cain and Abel knew the festival seasons, days, and Sabbaths of Elohim because they were established from Creation. It is evident that the creative spirit of Elohim is still renewing the earth through these moedim. Satan’s sin, as described by the Prophet Isaiah, was to exalt himself above these times and seasons, a trait that identifies the Spirit of Antichrist. Since Yeshua is the Word of Creation made flesh, the festival times and seasons are His Spirit working in physical vessels to effect individual, family, congregational, and planetary growth in the Word and gospel.
