Genesis 1:1a-In the beginning God. In other words, in the beginning God was, today He is and forever He shall be.
Genesis= "genesis" in the greek and means origin or birth. A book of one's lineage.
Genesis, the book of beginnings not only give us the creation story, but it also gives us the lineage of humanity.
Origin or birth does not apply to God for He alone is the beginning of everything. He is, He was and He forever shall be.
There was NONE before the Sovereign God of the Universe. Everything began with God.
Our God is the eternal, Infinite and Sovereign God of the Universe. He is the creator of the earth and ALL that is in it. Psalm 24:1-2 The earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. 2 For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.
John 1:1-3 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
How did our universe around us and humanity came into existence? Glad you ask! Open your bible to Genesis 1.
Genesis 1:1-In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
2 The earth was barren, with no form of life;t was under a roaring ocean covered with darkness. But the Spirit of God was moving over the water.
The book of Genesis is the book of beginnings of the history of the created world in which we all live.
THE FIRST DAY-Genesis 1:3 God said, “I command light to shine!” And light started shining.
THE SECOND DAY-vs#6 God said, “I command a dome to separate the water above it from the water below it.” 7 And that’s what happened. God made the dome 8 and named it “Sky.” Evening came and then morning—that was the second day.
THE THIRD DAY-vs#9 God said, “I command the water under the sky to come together in one place, so there will be dry ground.” And that’s what happened.
THE FOURTH DAY vs# 14 God said, “I command lights to appear in the sky and to separate day from night and to show the time for seasons, special days, and years. 15 I command them to shine on the earth.” And that’s what happened.
THE FIFTH DAY VS#20 God said, “I command the ocean to be full of living creatures, and I command birds to fly above the earth.” 21 So God made the giant sea monsters and all the living creatures that swim in the ocean. He also made every kind of bird. God looked at what he had done, and it was good.
THE SIXTH DAY-VS#24 God said, “I command the earth to give life to all kinds of tame animals, wild animals, and reptiles.” And that’s what happened.
Genesis 1:31-God looked at what he had done. All of it was very good! Evening came and then morning—that was the sixth day.
THE SEVENTH DAY- Genesis 2:2 By the seventh day God had finished his work, and so he rested. 3 God blessed the seventh day and made it special because on that day he rested from his work. 4 That’s how God created the heavens and the earth.
Psalm 24:1-2 The earth belongs to the Lord, and its fullness, the world, and those who dwell in it. 2 For He has founded it on the seas, and established it on the floods.
John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
The Apostle John describes Jesus as "The Word" that became flesh and came to dwell among men on earth. Let's listen to John 1:14-The Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, the glory as the only Son of the Father, full of grace and truth.
God is, God was and ALWAYS shall be. He alone is God.
Need more proof? In 2017 during the eclipse the sky went from day light to darkness for a few minutes and them back to daylight.
Man does not have the power nor the ability to turn day into night and then back to day! Only the Sovereign God of the Universe has the kind of power and authority to speak to anything and make it obey, including you and I.
Everything that is written in the BIBLE is written in hope that you would believe on the name of Jesus Christ and receive eternal life.
Lord, please open the mind's eyes of the people so that they may see what you see.
If you get nothing else from this lesson on today, know this one thing.
IN THE BEGINNING GOD!
God bless you all on today.
