“He’s been making things for the last five days and we’ve watched every one. He will speak what He wants the new creature to be and ta-da, exactly like He said, with more intrinsic details than we ever imagined. It’s amazing, but it won’t hurt if we miss one created creature.” Kedvenc had enjoyed watching the Creation but grew tired of it more readily than his friend.
“This time He is doing it different! He is going to use part of His creation to make something with His Hands!” Noticing Kedvenc’s puzzled look, Malaika continued. “You know the creature He created earlier today? The one He created in His Image? The one He called Adam? Well, the Creator has put Adam to sleep and is going to use part of him to make His next creation. I don’t want to miss it! Hurry!”
“Okay, Okay, I’m coming. I don’t know why He would do one creature different than the others. Are you sure?” Kedvenc hesitantly followed his friend to the gathering of heavenly beings waiting to watch what the Creator of All Things would do with the sleeping creature.
“What’s He doing? I can’t see.”
“Will Adam accept the new creature as his helper?”
“What will this new creation be called?”
All the angels were talking at once. It was impossible to tell who asked what. When the Creator reached down and opened Adam, a hush fell over the crowd. All eyes were on the Creator’s Hands as he gently took a rib from the sleeping man and crafted it into a beautiful new creature.
“It’s so much like Adam, yet so different.”
“Wow, the Image of the Creator in another creature!”
“Will Adam get to name her?”
“It is a female of the creature Adam!”
The buzz of the angels’ conversation resumed when the Creator stepped back to admire His handiwork. He had indeed crafted a beautiful creature. Like Adam, He created her in His Image, yet with different attributes of His character. The angels watched with anticipation as The Creator presented her to Adam.
“This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called ‘woman’, for she was taken out of man.” (Genesis 2:23 NIV) Adam had accepted the new creature as his helper. Her name would be Eve.
As they flew away from the crowd, Kedvenc ruffled Malaika’s hair. “Thank-you, my friend. I am glad I didn’t miss this part of the creation.”
Note: The names used for the angels in this story are Swahili and Hungarian words for “angel”.
