Prelude - And On The Eight Day...
Before there was water under the sky, before there was light separated from darkness, before there was a Heaven and an Earth, and even before there were angels and demons, there was one thing and one thing alone – the Almighty. He was the is, the was, and the will always be, all of this before there was a way to tell one from another. For you see, He is time and He is timeless. So when the moment was right (for only He knew) He created– time – that which He lived within and without, where He lived in the past, the present, and the future, all at once and none at all.
During this age, which could have been a second or a billion, trillion years, He created His first joy: Lucifer the Light. He then created others like Lucifer, who praised and loved the Almighty, who sang and danced and cherished Him. And for a countless and immeasurable time, all was good. Or so it seemed. For the one He created first, the one who brought Him the first joy slowly began to bring Him the first pain. Not pain in the sense you and I feel, but pain in the form of willfulness, deceit, and worst of all hate. A pain that spread to others who blindly followed Lucifer the Light as though he were a god.
Then came the day when His first joy declared himself equal to the Father, as he boldly tried to sit upon the throne of the Almighty. That was the day of the first, terrible war in Heaven, the day in which black and white were created, good and evil, angels and demons.
With the aid of His newly named angels, Michael the Archangel, Gabriel the Messenger, and others, the Almighty tossed the Deceiver and his followers out of Heaven. And with a saddened heart, the Almighty transformed the fallen angels – the newly named demons – by taking away their original beauty and letting their true ugliness show from within.
As a result of this deception the Almighty with His supreme intelligence then decided upon the Grand Plan. A plan that needed many wonderful things – so quickly He went to work on what He called the First Day. Beginning with that day, the Almighty created the water under the sky, the light separated from darkness, and a Heaven and an Earth. He created varied and beautiful creatures to roam the ground, fly the sky, and swim the waters. He then created two new joys, Adam and Eve, and gave them dominion over all the beautiful creatures. And then after the Almighty blessed and warned Adam and Eve, and after He rested, it was on the eight day He decided to reward his cherished angels. For the Almighty so loved them He created a beautiful home for them as well: Par Amor. Situated before Heaven as though it were a holy foyer, Par Amor was the angel’s home to live, play, and work the miracles of the Almighty.
Meanwhile, Lucifer the Deceiver, the newly named Devil, watched with rage and envy from his new home in Hell.
“How could He give them that palatial home? That should’ve been mine! And He thinks He can replace me with those two pitiful beings? How dare Him?”
After more ranting and cursing, Lucifer finally calmed and reflected. The Deceiver thought of how he, or rather his demon followers, would destroy Par Amor, burn it and then burn Heaven. How he would walk into Heaven and finally sit upon the throne of the Almighty, becoming the ruler of the universe. But before any of this could happen he realized the pitiful creatures were not created without a reason. There had to be a plan. A plan he could and would and will derail.
Transforming into a snake, Lucifer slunk to the Earth to ruin His plan. It was so simple, he laughed to himself, The Almighty was truly stupid.
“Yesss, with the knowledge of good and evil, thessse pitiful creaturesss will be easssy to missslead. I will dessstroy them and I will dessstroy Par Amor.”
