Genesis 1

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Wednesday, November 18, 2015 Under: Teaching and prayer
Hey all!

Today I get to share with you something I was working on last year. I finished around December and can you believe it, it's almost December again, hahaha. Anyway, it is a short film on Genesis 1, the creation of everything, so I really hope and pray that it is a blessing to you!!

Check it out:

When GOD asked me to do this, I was not sure how it would come out, because I needed people characters and I was not experienced in modelling people... I of course knew about Make Human, and GOD gave me release to use it, so yey, I did not have to model Adam and Eve from scratch. Another issue was how to show them, because they were naked and, because of sin, you don't just go plastering naked people all over the internet, hahaha. Without going for the "hide in the bushes" kind of scenery, which does work, I went for showing only what I felt could be shown without causing anyone to stumble, with them being out in the open, which they were. 

Other spects that were extremely difficult, were things like the trees and grass and the animals. Not to mention the sound! Oh dear the sound was hard! haha. I had never made anything like this - mostly tests and those didn't have any sound. Now, I needed sound effects and no experience. Thankfully, GOD helped me make what was needed for the project. What I couldn't record, HE helped me fabricate. Like the splash. I can't safely record a large splash without my phone getting wet, so for those I had to use various MIDI instruments to stick something together from memory and I'm happy with that.
For the bubbles sound, I blew bubbles in a measuring jug or cup (I'd rather say jug, because it is a good size) using a paper towel roll. It gave big bubbles and the jug was deep enough to give a nice full sound. It just required mixing to make it stereo and sound like more than just one time's bubble blowing, haha.

The list is almost endless when it comes to this project's make due and learning!! GOD has been so faithful to help me complete what HE wanted me to do and though I would like to do the whole Bible, I cannot make any promises or commitments to that, haha. This one alone took, what feels like, a year to complete, hahaha. When you make almost everything yourself, it does take a while, hahaha.

Anyway, I just have to say thanx to GOD for helping me with this. Without HIM, none of this would be possible! NONE, haha, seriously. :D

Know JESUS yet? GOD is reaching out to you through these videos. HE loves you more than you can imagine and wants you to know HIM. Not because HE's lonely, but because HE loves you and paid a heavy price to enable you to go to Heaven, where HE is. See, we all have sinned in some way shape or form. That makes us guilty before GOD. If you have ever said that you hated someone, in GOD's standard, you have committed murder (James 4). If you've ever looked on a person with lustful thinking, you've already committed fornication with them in your heart and you are then guilty of sexual impurity. If you were to face GOD on judgement day, saying: "I was a good person" will be a void argument, just like it would be before a human judge. GOD knew that we would have to pay that penalty and that we could not pay it, even if we tried, but sent JESUS to pay the price for us. Your sins were put on HIM and the forgiveness that is there for you was by no means cheap - the cross was not padded and comfortable, neither was the death.
But, HE was raised up on the third day (after being crucified) and finished the work so that we may enter through HIM paying the penalty we were supposed to pay, but it is only valid for you, if you accept it and live for HIM.
If that is you today, please, follow this prayer:
"JESUS, I believe that YOU are real and I believe YOU died for me and was raised on the third day for me. Please forgive me for my many sins. I make YOU the LORD of my life, full time and to fill me with YOUR HOLY SPIRIT. Teach me how to live for YOU, help me become what YOU have made me to be, in JESUS' Name! Amen!"

"For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen."
Revelation 22:18-21
