Where was Gabriel and Michael?

Where was Gabriel and Michael?
What were they doing?
Did they come and counsel Adam and Eve about their relationship with Lucifer?
The Divine Principle explained clearly what the act of the Fall of Man was, but that is only the last chapter of a very important story. What lead Adam and Eve to have a sexual relationship prematurely, when they were not ready and not capable of handling the responsibility of it? They were living in a world that was supposed to be very good with no evil. However, by the time they consummated the relationship evil was already very much there. It was too late.
What happened? I think it is important to truly understand this. It will help us explain the Fall of Man in greater details and will help us avoid repeating this most horrible mistake when we finally have a world centered on God once again.

The story behind the picture
Cosmic Background Radiation

NASA/WMAP Science Team
Date: 1964
Discovered by accident in 1963, the Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation is essentially noise left over from the creation of the universe. Dating back to just 380,000 years after the big bang, the CMB is a baby picture of our universe, and finding it was a triumph of cosmology.

The Donald Trump phenomena

A self-centered man, not very kind to most people, intelligent, educated, bold, and not afraid. No one in our past American history would have chosen him as the leader of our country, but the times we live now are different. There is truly a spiritual war going on, a final show down between the forces of good and the forces of evil.

During the election process I did not know who our president should be, I did not feel a lot of qualifications for either of them – but I do not know everything. On the other hand, I trust that God does. Therefore, I simply pray that whomever God could work with the best, would be the person elected.

Since, Mr. Trump became president, I do not gloat, and I do not despair, I simply wait. Wait and see what will happen. No one can possibly predict, his next tweet, his next move, or his next words…
One thing I know for sure is our country, as is, today, needs a serious wake up call. We do not love ourselves, we do not respect ourselves as citizens of America. We behave childishly in many cases and do not respect the freedom that is ours. We mi-use it, we drag it in the mud, we do not even understand its value. Some of us think it will be there forever. It might be possible that God is using Mr. Trump as a wake-up call for us.

On the other hand, I also see many good people in our country. People who want to take responsibilities and are trying to do what they can in a non-reactionary way and in a non-violent way. So, as I said in my first paragraph we are in the final show down between the forces of good and the forces of evil, not just in this country but in the world, not just in this physical world but also in the spiritual world, and inch by inch – We are making progress towards heaven in both worlds.

Do you believe in God?

Which one? There are many Gods in this world. I cannot say for sure that I believe in the God of the person who is asking the question, unless, this person, first, tells me who God is, for him or her.

Yes, I believe that I am a created being and therefore there is a creator, someone who gave life to humanity on the onset. I also believe that the earth and the whole universe was created by a being who was capable of planning and executing a very complex creation.

Why do I believe?

I was born that way. I believe before I was conceived. I have the feeling that my ancestry, for many generations, were strong believers in a Christian God, therefore the whole spiritual atmosphere surrounding me from the start.

I never wavered in my belief in God, but I did modify it as I grew. My own thoughts, reflections, spiritual life gave me a different understanding of who God is, his motivation for creating, and his way of thinking and loving. So, the God that I believe in today is not the God that I was born to know. So, if I was asked by someone from my Parents generation who believed the way they did if I believed in God, I will have to say, no, I do not.

So far, the best definition of God that I have come across is this one:

God, the Creator of all things under the sun, is the true parent of all humanity. He is not a parent in the parochial sense, existing only for a certain religion, a certain race, or the residents of a certain region. You may call Him by any name, be it Jehovah, Allah, or any other. What is important is that He certainly exists, lives as the true parent of all people, and is carrying on the great work of Creation. He governs everything in the universe, and He carries out His providence through history in accordance with the principles and laws of nature that He set up at the beginning of time.
