Join me for a journey through Genesis! Im relaunching my online Bible Studies this year. So if you are on facebook, find us at ” In The Beginning-Genesis Study.” Its about 10 of us, who are starting 2019 seeking more from God.
Moses wrote the book of Genesis around 1450-1410 B.C during Israel’s wandering in the wilderness for forty years. In fact Moses wrote the first five books of the Bible which is called the Torah.
From the start, God was at work….
First, In order to believe anything else in the word, we must believe that there is a GOD. And God created the Heavens and the Earth. Many would argue, other means of creation i.e the “big bang theory.” However it takes Faith to believe that God has always been! Everything else has a beginning, a cause. Why not the world?
God is self existent. Always has been, is and will be.
Moses stated in Psalm 90:2 “Before the mountains were born, or You gave birth to the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God.”
In the Beginning God created the Heavens and the Earth! The Hebrew word for God is ‘elohiym (el-o-heem’) which is not a single God, but God in the plural form. God the Father, God Jesus, & God the Holy Spirit created the heavens and the earth. Our world was made by an intelligent Creater, one who knew exactly how and what would make the earth function properly. From the correct gravitational pull to the seasons…there are so many, too many to name examples of how our earth functions systematically. You can not contribute this to anyone but an “all knowing God!”
You see only God can create…… man can only fashion and make things out of existing material.
Gen 1:3-5 3 “Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness ,He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day.”
God took a mass of emptiness and confusion and out of that SAME mass He created the light to remove the emptiness and confusion. WOW! Does it sound similar to what he does with us? When we are still empty, confused and searching for truth, God opens our eyes to the light, His son Jesus Christ. Then all of a sudden, no more emptiness or confusion! Why, because Jesus is the light of the world. And He fills that darkness and emptiness inside you!
Jesus said: John 8:12 “Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”
Then after we receive Jesus he says this about us: Matt 5:14 “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.
And what did God say about the light? That it is good. The light that is in you (Jesus) is good! It doesn’t matter what others say about you. It doesn’t matter about your past. It doesn’t matter about any of the mistakes you’ve made! The light (Jesus) in you IS GOOD!
Genesis 1 gives us a full revelation on our God’s awesome power. It is properly ordered and ordained. There are no mistakes. Just like God will properly order and ordain your walk if you will accept him as your Lord and Savior!
What spoke to you about Genesis 1?
Enjoy the journey
