Fasten your seatbelts as we are about to enter a bumpy ride through scripture, a ride that takes us back to the days when we were Created Equal.
Observing so many of God’s children being born into a world of sickness and poverty is cause for concern as we ask ourselves: Is Created Equal an optical illusion? Does God allowing this to happen show Him treating His children equal? Ezekiel 18:25 KJV addresses whom the unequal ones are:
Yet ye say, The way of the Lord is not equal. Hear now, O house of Israel; Is not my way equal? are not your ways unequal?
How can it be that our unequal ways contribute to and affect the situations we face at birth? This question will be answered later but first we allow Rev. 4:11 KJV to address the created part of being Created Equal; it tells why we were created:
Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.
God was lonely! Creating us pleasured Him by filling an emptiness that He felt in His Heart. It gave Him someone to love and potentially, someone that would return His love.
Created Equal puts us on equal footing and gives us equal opportunity to show God our love but the question is: When is it that we were Created Equal?
The answer is that we were Created Equal before we were placed in flesh bodies. This explains why our being born into what appears to be an unequal or unfair situation is simply a continuation of being Created Equal. Jacob and Esau is a good example of this taking place.
Romans 9:13 KJV shows God loving one of these twins and hating the other and this took place while they were still in their mother’s womb:
As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.
Had Jacob and Esau not lived and performed before being placed in their mother’s womb, hating one and loving the other could easily be considered unequal treatment from God.
But life for them was continuing and not beginning. How they performed in their spiritual bodies before they entered Rebekah’s womb is what caused God to love one and hate the other.
Comprehending this takes us to 1 Peter 1:20 KJV where God calls our remembrance to a time that existed before this earth age, a time when Jacob, Esau and we were with God in spiritual bodies:
Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world,
