    It is one thing to say that God created mankind because he is a God of love (1 Jn. ), and it is quite another to suggest that he created angels and people because of a need to love. Jehovah’s love is simply intrinsic to his nature; “loving” was not a need that would not have been unfulfilled but for the creation of either angels or humans.   He calls Genesis a “mystery” because God did not reveal clearly all his purposes for the marriage of male and female in Genesis. There were hints and pointers in the Old Testament that marriage was like the relation of God and his people. But only when Christ came did the mystery of marriage get spelled out in detail.

    Why the Creation of MAN? But why did God create man on the earth (Gen. )? Look at this situation as God does. God has given us humans minds, like the mind of God, only inferior and limited.

The riddles of God are more satisfying than the solutions of man.” This is the remarkable fact of the book of Job—God doesn’t answer a single one of His servant’s burning questions. He does not solve the mystery or make sense of it.

    The significance of God revealing his name to Moses meant that he was more than a force, he is a God who wants a relationship with man. What were the 10 plagues of Egypt? The 10 plagues of Egypt was the Nile to blood,frogs,lice,flies,sickness of animals,boils,hail,locusts,darkness and death of every . Did God create evil? Some people say no. They argue that man's free will is the source of evil. But didn't God create free will? And doesn't that make Him the ultimate source of evil? Doesn't that make Him responsible for our sins? Is that why the Lord says in Isaiah (KJV), "I make peace and create evil"? If God isn't the source of evil, what can the Bible possibly mean when it tells us.
