TITLE: Recorder Angel’s Dilemma
By Colin Swann


Before Creation

“My Lord, are you sure this creation will glorify you?”

“Yes, I am confident that what I am about to create will give me great pleasure.”

“But my Lord, you are using the soil of the earth and not just your Holy Word alone.”

“I have made planet earth my resting place – ‘heaven is my throne and earth my footstool’. My creation of man, both male and female, is my special work from the soil of the earth.”

“My Lord, will they not err? They are less than heavenly beings and the angel Lucifer fell from his heavenly state?” He also deceived many glorious ones into error. Will he not be able to deceive the earth ones?”

“The fallen ones may want to war against earth and my man creation, but I have confidence that man will triumph.”

After Creation

“My Lord, man looks a wonderful being – the male looks strong surely he will be able to war against his enemy and the female looks beautiful and the male appears to love her.”

“Yes, it is a delightful creation and I am well pleased.”

“Lord, the Eden garden you have placed them in looks like part of the garden of heaven come down. But I have seen the fallen ones lingering and enviously watching your wonderful creation. Will you give man extra protection against the evil ones.”

“I am confident man will be victorious. He has freedom of choice like all my being creation.”

“But Lord, what if the devil deceives him and he errs from your ways? Surely it will again shake heaven as when the holy ones fell. I recorded great sorrow being in our hearts at that time.”

“I am assured that man will continue and fulfil all that is in my heart for him. My covenant with men and women is that I will enjoy them forever. I resolve never to leave them nor forsake them. ”

After the Fall

“Lord, may I speak from my disappointed heart.”

“You may Raphael – ask heaven’s question of me now.”

“Wonderful Lord, I know your loving heart must be broken now that man has rebelled and erred from your kindness. What can we do to bless you - we worship you our Great God.”

“Because man was made from earth and is made a little lower than the angels I will yet have mercy upon him. I will send a victorious one to rescue them and bring them back into my blessing.”

“But Lord, the great council of heaven cannot annul the guilty without a penalty. The penalty for rebellion so far has been separation. Lord, if I may continue, it seems impossible to redeem mankind from this transgression.”

“I have a plan for the redemption of humankind.”

After The Plan

“Wonderful Lord, I worship you because you have saved mankind from a lost eternity and brought him back into relationship with yourself – you are worthy of glory, worship, and praise from all your creation. I praise your wonderful eternal Son, who became the Son of Man to redeem mankind by shedding of his blood on the cross and becoming their Lord Jesus Christ.”

“Record these great events in the recorder book and open a new book. Title it the ‘Lamb’s Book of Life’ and record in it all who receive my Son Jesus as their Saviour, even those who believe in His name. For my Son and His name will be great for all eternity. He was the Second Adam, the man who was my victory over the enemy. I have been confident of victory by my Son from the beginning of time and for all eternity.”

“Lord, thank you.”

This is a creative way to tell this. I like this line, "I will send a victorious one to rescue them and bring them back into my blessing.” Thank you for writing.
