Isaiah 46:10 Declaring the end from the beginning. And from ancient times things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all My pleasure,
This verse, along with six other times Isaiah uses this same type of statement, has been misunderstood to mean that God knows the difference between the beginning and the end or that He has designed the beginning and the end with their own characteristics.
Rather, from the Hebrew the verse more acurately should read like the following:
Declaring, out of the beginning, the end, and out of the ancient times, the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all My pleasure. In other words, the end is designed through the signs of the beginning or the end has its roots in the beginning. Could we even say that the end is found in the beginning?
Now when you read this verse it declares that we can better understand the present and the things not yet happened by better understanding the beginning. The next time you determine to read the book of Genesis, keep this in mind and dig deeper to discover what God is saying right now.
Could it be that the reason that evolution was introduced to begin with was because creation has so much to say about who God is, what He has done and what He is about to do? Get rid of the beginning and you keep people blinded of the present and the future. This is all the more reason to know and understand the book of Genesis. The more you understand, the better you will understand the New Testament and better you will understand the end times.
