Genesis 1

  • Genesis is the first book of the Bible and the beginning of history:

    History is reality and reality is what God says it is. He lives in the present eternally and knows everything at once. True history is unmarred devoid of men’s opinions.
  • Creation vs. evolution is not a battle of science vs. the Bible … or science vs. faith. It’s a battle between two starting points; God’s Word and man’s word.

  • It is intriguing to study the wonderful nature of the universe considering Paul’s statement in Romans 1:20 which states that the invisible God can be known by the visible things which He made. What do we see? What does it tell us about our God?
  • The first Chapter of Genesis is unique in this study. It is prophetic, mysterious, full of universal physics, it is symbolic, metaphoric, and explosive with Jewish biblical understandings which cannot be minimized.
Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God (‘ĕlōhîm) created the heavens and the earth.
  • God’s name is indicative of His character. Elohiym is plural.
  • Deuteronomy 6:4 “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God (‘Elohiym), the Lord (Yĕhovah) is ONE!”
    Like Deut 6:4 the plural of God, Elohiym, is also used in Genesis 1:1.
    If God is ONE why is He a plural noun? It seems to contradict itself

  • Deuteronomy 6:4 “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God (‘Elohiym), the Lord (Yĕhovah) is ONE!”
    The Hebrew for “ONE” is “‘eḥāḏ“. “Ehad” meaning properly, to be united, i.e. (as) ONE.

  • Therefore; The Godhead is “The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit” acting as one in character and purpose, sharing the same spiritual DNA, all of whom together as “One” “Created” the heavens and the earth.

  • The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are called the “God head” and are known as the “Trinity”.
  • The “Son” in the New Testament, in Greek, is called “Jesus”. The Hebrew form of “Jesus” is “Yeshua” (Salvation/Deliverer)
  • Jesus took a role in the creation:
    • John 1:3
      All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.
    • John 1:10
      He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him.
    • Colossians 1:15-17
      J. B. Phillips. Now Christ is the visible expression of the invisible God. He existed before creation began, for it was through him that everything was made, whether spiritual or material, seen or unseen. Through him, and for him, also, were created power and dominion, ownership and authority. In fact, every single thing was created through, and for him….Life from nothing began through him, and life from the dead began through him, and he is, therefore, justly called the Lord of all.
    • Isaiah 9:6
      For unto us a Child is born,
      Unto us a Son is given;
      And the government will be upon His shoulder.
      And His name will be called
      Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
      Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
    • John 8:58
      Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM.”
    • Hebrews 1:10
      to the Son He says: ‘You, Lord, in the beginning laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of Your hands. They will perish, but You remain; and they will all grow old like a garment; Like a cloak You will fold them up, and they will be changed. But You are the same, and Your years will not fail.’”
    • Revelation 13:8b
      The Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
    • Revelation 22:13
      I am the Alpha (Alef) and the Omega (Tav), the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.

The Sum Total of all “Ands” is Jesus, the Alpha (Alef) and Omega (Tav)

The Alef-Tav (Alpha-Omega) Holds All Things Together

Genesis 1:2 The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit (ruwach) of God (ĕlōhîm) was hovering over the face of the waters.
Genesis 1:3Then God (‘ĕlōhîm) said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. And God (‘ĕlōhîm) saw the light, that it was good; and God (‘ĕlōhîm) divided the light from the darkness. God (‘ĕlōhîm) called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day. (Literally: And evening was, and morning was, a day, one.)Genesis 1:Then God (‘ĕlōhîm) said, “Let there be a firmament (expanse) in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.”
Genesis 1:Thus God (‘ĕlōhîm) made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament; and it was so. Genesis 1:And God (‘ĕlōhîm) called the firmament Heaven. So the evening and the morning were the second day.
Genesis 1:Then God (‘ĕlōhîm) said, “Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear”; and it was so.
Genesis 1:10 And God (‘ĕlōhîm) called the dry land Earth, and the gathering together of the waters He called Seas. And God (‘ĕlōhîm) saw that it was good.
Genesis 1:11 Then God (‘ĕlōhîm) said, “Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed, and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in itself, on the earth”; and it was so.
Genesis 1:12 And the earth brought forth grass, the herb that yields seed according to its kind, and the tree that yields fruit, whose seed is in itself according to its kind. And God (‘ĕlōhîm) saw that it was good.
Genesis 1:13 So the evening and the morning were the third day.
Genesis 1:14 Then God (‘ĕlōhîm) said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years;
Genesis 1:15 and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth”; and it was so.
Genesis 1:16 Then God (‘ĕlōhîm) made two great lights (luminaries): the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. He made the stars also.
Genesis 1:17 God (‘ĕlōhîm) set them in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth,
Genesis 1:18 and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness. And God (‘ĕlōhîm) saw that it was good.
Genesis 1:19 So the evening and the morning were the fourth day.
Genesis 1:20 Then God (‘ĕlōhîm) said, “Let the waters abound with an abundance of living creatures (Literally souls), and let birds fly above the earth across the face of the firmament (expanse) of the heavens.”
Genesis 1:21 So God (‘ĕlōhîm) created great sea creatures and every living thing that moves, with which the waters abounded, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God (‘ĕlōhîm) saw that it was good.
Genesis 1:22 And God (‘ĕlōhîm) blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.”
Genesis 1:23 So the evening and the morning were the fifth day.
Genesis 1:24 Then God (‘ĕlōhîm) said, “Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind: cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth, each according to its kind”; and it was so.
Genesis 1:25 And God (‘ĕlōhîm) made the beast of the earth according to its kind, cattle according to its kind, and everything that creeps on the earth according to its kind. And God (‘ĕlōhîm) saw that it was good.
Genesis 1:26 Then God (‘ĕlōhîm) said, “Let Us (plural) make man in Our (plural) image, according to Our (plural) likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all (all the wild animals of) the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”
Genesis 1:27 So God (‘ĕlōhîm) created man in His own image; in the image of God (‘ĕlōhîm) He created him; male and female He created them.
Genesis 1:28 Then God (‘ĕlōhîm) blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves (moves about) on the earth.”
Genesis 1:29 And God (‘ĕlōhîm) said, “See, I have given you every herb that yields seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food.
Genesis 1:30 Also, to every beast of the earth, to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, in which there is life (a living soul), I have given every green herb for food”; and it was so.
Genesis 1:31 Then God (‘ĕlōhîm) saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
