Creation plan of God

Creation plan of God

The limited period before death is meant to be a test for man, while the eternal period after his death will be the period for his reward or punishment, based on his performance in the test in this life.

When we think about the purpose of man’s life, we realise that man is born with unlimited potential, yet in the present world, he finds only very limited use for it. According to his nature, man wants to live eternally, but very soon, without his leave, death arrives and puts an end to his life.

He harbours an ocean of desires in his heart, but these desires are never fulfilled. He houses a life of dreams in his mind, but these dreams are never realised. In this case, there is no difference between a poor man and a rich man. The question is why are man and the present world so mismatched? We can find our answer if we understand God’s creation plan.

The Creator of man has created this world, as one half of a pair—the present limited world in which we pass our lives after birth, is the first half; and the next eternal world where we live after death, is the other half. The Creator of man has thus created him as an eternal creature and has divided his life into two stages—the pre-death period or the limited life in this world and the post-death period or the eternal life after death.

The limited period before death is meant to be a test for man, while the eternal period after his death will be the period for his reward or punishment, based on his performance in the test in this life. This is the scheme of existence for this world as devised by its Creator.

His intention is that man must spend a period of trial in this present, imperfect world and subsequent to this, according to his deeds, he will earn the right to inhabit the perfect and eternal world, another name for which is Paradise.
