In a fiery pit, in the depths of the earth, creation had begun. The Demons, Corruption and Deceit, vomited their spirit onto a growing mass of evil. Two other hellish fiends, Hate and Destruction, voided their bowels, adding to the mixture. Demon after demon provided its own special talents until finally they had all contributed.
Their dark lord entered the cavern. With a thunderous laugh he passed his hand over the vile mess, uttered ancient words, and stood back as his creation came to life.
One of a kind, the creature hissed at the demons, causing them to take a step back. Even they reeled from the sight, felt faint hearted.
Leaping up, the newborn raked its razor sharp claws into the cavern’s ceiling, digging into the hard rock. Within seconds it had disappeared as it ripped its way to the surface above where it would, with finality, turn existence there into a living nightmare.
As it climbed it grew stronger. At last it sensed it was within seconds of bursting from the earth.
The farmer plowing his field never saw the horrifying head that emerged from the ground just as the blade of his disc sliced through sinews and cleaved the body in half.
Below, Satan screamed in rage. His plans foiled before they were hatched. The child of his creation had achieved only one deed before its demise. Nothing would ever grow in that particular spot again.
Nestled in a warm crevice, in the depths of the earth, creation had begun. Beings of light, Peace and Truth, had sown a precious seed millennia ago. Cherubs, Joy and Healing, bathed it in compassion. Other angels provided their own special blessings until finally all had contributed.
The Holy Spirit entered the cavern. With a thunderous command he passed his hand over the tender kernel, uttered ancient words, and stood back as the creation came to life.
One of a kind, the creature shone from within like a beacon, causing the beholders to take a step back. Even they were overwhelmed by the sight, felt glad of heart.
Rising up, the newborn spread its opalescent wings, soared to the cavern’s ceiling, and drilled like a blinding laser into the hard rock. Within seconds it had disappeared as it tunneled its way to the surface above where it would, with authority, share its gifts with all humanity.
As it ascended it grew stronger. At last it sensed it was within seconds of bursting from the earth.
The farmer plowing his field never saw the glorious body that emerged from the ground as the blade of his disc passed harmlessly through it perfect form.Spirits everywhere sang joyous praise. The long-awaited relief was at hand. The child of His creation had already achieved one deed before its journey had truly begun. Everything would flourish in that particular spot from that time forward.
