Mankind are chaotic. Because they don't know what God did for themselves. Darkness was on the face of the deep, and this means people are destined in hell. This is the fundamental figure of the human beings.
We can know God through the written Word of God.
Earth here means human being's heart. Water here means the Word of God. Knowing that God created heaven and earth is knowing God. If we believe in the Word of God and believe in what God did, we realize that we have no sin in our hearts. About 2000 years ago, Jesus took away all the sins of the world once and for all by being baptized by John the Baptist at the Jordan river. And He shed His blood on the Cross for paying the wages of all the sins of the world once and for all. On the third day, He was resurrected from His death.
God opened the gate of Heaven to the righteous through His Word. God gives us forgiveness of sin, makes us the righteous. And we have no sin in our hearts, and the Holy Spirit is dwelling in our hearts. This is proof that God is alive.
Knowing God is no emotion. Knowing God is very reasonable. It's not logical, it doesn't affect your feelings, it's about believing based on evidence. Please don't forget the grace of God. Believing in God unconditionally is an emotion. Some people say they feel hot within their hearts when they pray. This is emotion. Emotions always change. We must believe in God through the Word of God. Because we met God, the Holy Spirit can reject Antichrist when the Antichrist appears. The life of faith can never be emotional. The life of faith is to do in rational. Admitting the Word of God and following is the life of faith.
All our own thoughts and our ideas that come from our flesh are dirty. Our faith in the Word of God can dominate our emotion and our own thoughts. Faith is clear and simple. The Truth is clear and simple. It's not complicated.
