92 THE INCREDIBLE HUMAN POTENTIAL
ning. That's why we have started this revelation of TRUTH at its
farthermost prehistoric beginning.
We have covered the actual beginning of all things, before
the material universe was, with only the two SUPREME SPIRIT PER–
SONAGES - one called "the Word," who was with God. The Per–
sonage called "The Word" created all things, under direction of
Goo!
Their first feat of creation was the angels - individually cre–

these were existing in physically empty space.
Then carne the creation of our planet Earth and the entire

On the throne of God's government God had placed the
su~

This Lucifer, even as his angels, was endowed with an indepen–
dent MINO - to think, reason, make choices and decisions. God's
intention was to create within Lucifer and the angels,
