There are several points which I wish to say here,
If you think there is no creator, and all the visible world (human, animal, fish, bird, flower, tree, insects, ...) come from random processes, you need not read the following. Still I hope you would search your heart deeply. For truly there is a Creator, and He is Jesus. You will face Him after death. It would then be too late for you to realize that Jesus is the creator, for most probably Hell will be waiting for you.
Jesus also created angels, to manage all affairs (some manage human, some manage trees, some manage fish, some manage bird, ...). But some angels rebel against the authority of Jesus, thinking they can be god themselves. Foremost among them is SATAN. In total, about one third of the angels rebel against Jesus. But SATAN still fears Jesus.
Also there are "evil spirits", "siren" (female evil spirits) in this world, who are INVISIBLE to us, but they exert great influence on us without our knowing.
These you should bear in mind.
For this, we have to know a little about creation, and the history of early humans.
Jesus first created Adam and Eve. Eve was beguiled by SATAN and human depart from their original happy state, becoming miserable and more miserable.
Also some fallen angels came down from heaven, and married human women, and gave birth to giants (hybrids). These giants spreaded violence and evil on earth, affecting all humans that human also learned to be evil and violent, therefore GOD destroyed the world by a huge, huge flood.
But GOD saved one family from the flood, the family of Noah. GOD told him to build an ark, which is a big, big ship, to escape the flood. Noah obeyed. So the Noah family survived.
Noah had three sons -- Shem, Ham, Japheth. And Shem was the first born.
GOD places great emphasis on the first born. It is GOD's way of doing things, GOD placed emphasis on the first born, and not the other lesser sons.
All the book written since creation (by Adam, by Seth his son, by .....) were written in hieroglyphs, and engraved on gold/brass plates. These books contain vital knowledge. And all these books passed onto Shem, the first born.
Abraham was the first born from the lineage of Shem, therefore Abraham got all those ancient books (written in hieroglyphs on gold/brass plates.)
From Abraham came the Jews (Israelites of today).
From the Jews came the Bible of today (King James' version is available for download from the internet.)
The Old Testament contains TORAH (the five books of Moses), and the prophet books (Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Daniel, ...) as well as the history of ancient Israel. This is the book that JESUS wanted us to learn knowledge from -- a book from the first born of Noah.
History is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT. Even Chinese kept history, and FROM HISTORY, WE CAN LEARN A LOT.
If you despise history, you have to experience everything, everything, afresh, and you will experience terrible, terrible reverses and "learn the lessons the hard way." Therefore I hope you would not despise history, but learn from history.
In the New Testament, there are 4 gospel books, describing the teachings and acts of Jesus.
In heaven, Jesus was called JEHOVAH, but when condescended as human, being born of Mary, Jesus had to learn to walk, read, write, work, ... and experience EVERYTHING a human being experiences. Jesus learned from the Old Testament (read [Luke 2:42-46]).
Note this important fact -- you see Jesus, you see JEHOVAH. Jesus is the personification of JEHOVAH.
Jesus showed us how to live a life of human -- obeying all the laws/commandments of Jehovah, and submissive to the will of Jehovah in all things, even obedient onto death. (-- but reap resurrection and ETERNAL LIFE afterwards).
When we experiences reverses/misfortunes in life, endure like Jesus, trusting in the goodwill (good intent) of Jehovah, and learn from such reverses/misfortunes to build up our character.
Therefore the Old Testament (law/history/prophets) and the Gospel Books (Jesus' life and teachings) is the book GOD wishes us, human, to learn how to live a life of human.
As how to read the Bible, please read my article (*) HOW TO READ THE BIBLE, and not read the Bible the way theologians do!!! THIS IS A WARNING!
In short, it is to learn all the teachings of Jehovah, all the teachings of Jesus, and to learn the historical lesson of Israel, know that Jehovah rules the earth with His (*) LAWS AND COMMANDMENTS.
And GOD's rule is very, very, simple,
KEEP THE LAWS/COMMANDMENTS => BLESSING;
BREAK THE LAWS/COMMANDMENTS => CURSE.
It seems to us that we can move, speak, .... without outside help. No, like electro-magnetic waves that operate the TV, WIFI..., we get EVERYTHING from JESUS, also in invisible ways. This we call PROVIDENCE.
So there ARE invisible "ideas/driving_forces" falling on us. Such "ideas/driving_forces" may come from good angels from JESUS, OR wicked angels from SATAN, or EVIL SPIRITS from SATAN.
When "ideas" land wholesome on us, it seems to be originated from us, but NO, NOTHING originates from us, for we are "DUST". WE MUST NOTE THIS FACT, ALL ARE FROM OUTSIDE.
I give an example, there is a man, who always have suicidal thoughts in his mind, but he himself knows that he is a contented person, and should not have had such thoughts. Later he realized that it was SATAN/fallen angels/evil spirits who put such ideas onto his mind.
I hope you would realize, like him, that ideas from yourself actually come from outside; and know to reject wrong ideas, and not blame yourself!
Therefore, whenever ideas come onto you (which come everyday, every moment), you must first realize that it comes from outside (good from JESUS, bad from SATAN), and it is us to decide WHETHER TO REJECT OR ACCEPT. If you think that ideas come from yourself, and not from outside, you are DEAD WRONG, you never understand "providence" nor "temptation".
JESUS gives everyone freewill, to accept or reject ideas. It is our own responsibility to accept or to reject.
If you do not know "history", do not know the teachings of Jehovah/Jesus, you have no way to know to reject a wrong idea. And if you follow that wrong idea, you will be miserable and reap the consequences, and eventually landing you, eternally, in HELL.
Therefore it is vital that you study the Bible, (click HOW TO READ THE BIBLE), learn all the teachings of JEHOVAH/Jesus, and learn from the history of ancient Israel.
If you are a Chinese, learn Chinese history. (In general, Jesus prospered a kind dynasty, and brought to ruin an evil dynasty.)
If your country has kept history, learn from it. It is time well spent.
There is also another history book, of Native Americans of the period 600 B.C. to 420 A.D., called the BOOK OF MORMON, where you can learn valuable historical lessons (but beware, Joseph Smith, who translated the book from buried golden plates, was later beguiled by SATAN, and had many wrong "revelations" from SATAN which the Mormon Church put in a book called "D&C". I warn you beforehand here, that you learn those "revelations" in "D&C" to your own hurt. I only recommend the Book of Mormon, and not "D&C".)
I hope after reading this, you may know that everyday you have to make decisions, decisions that will have eternal consequences, landing you either in Heaven (a place much like earth, but much much more beautiful and friendly, in company of Jesus/good_angels/saints) or Hell (a place much like desert without plant but full of insects/snakes, or a Lake of fire, in company of SATAN/fallen_angels/evil_spirits).
WORK OUT YOUR OWN SALVATION WITH FEAR AND TREMBLING, ALWAYS PRAYING TO JESUS AND RELYING ON JESUS, AND JESUS WILL GUIDE YOU ALL THE WAY. ALSO REMEMBER SATAN AND HIS HORDE WILL ALWAYS BE THERE TO HINDER YOU, TO TEMPT YOU, AND LEAD YOU INTO WRONG WAYS. AND SATAN AND HIS HORDE ALWAYS PRETEND TO BE GOD.
When you realize that SATAN/fallen_angels/evil_spirits exist, and they can no longer hide from you, they will try to harass you openly.
When this happens to you, do not be alarmed. It may seem to be one-sided, invisible SATAN and his hordes can harass you, but you cannot evade nor do anything back!
No so, for GOD IS GOD OF JUSTICE, HE WILL ADMINISTER JUSTICE ACCORDING TO THE LAWS/COMMANDMENTS HE ENACTED. Therefore JESUS will punish them according to the justice in His laws, without your knowing.
There is an English man called John Cramphorn, and once a demon (in Cramphorn's own words) "hit my stomach made me double up as I went to the floor", but "The Lord then showed me the consequences of this act. I saw what appeared to be the same spiritual demonic being skinned like a rabbit from head to toe, lying on the floor doubled up in what looked like pain."
JESUS know that we human are on PROBATION here on earth, (to see whether we fit heaven or not), and are affected by SATAN and his hordes (as well as wicked people), therefore JESUS made a very valuable promise in [Psalm 50:15]
And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shall glorify me.
When you meet troubling situation, pray to Jesus to help you. Jesus will keep His promise. Sometimes, help may come instantly, sometimes a little later, sometimes, it may seem that it never comes. But be patient, read [Job] in the Bible, Jesus has His own purpose and timing. Rest in the goodwill of Jesus. Endure to the end.
Hope both you and I may pass this "probation", and meet one another in heaven, a sinless new earth where love prevails.
