Genesis 1

Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God (‘ĕlōhîm) created the heavens and the earth.
  • Genesis 1:1 “Nothing” cannot create “something”. Therefore; there is a Creator.
    • Some say the proof of God is in the fact that only God can create something from nothing,
      But I would suggest that the proof of God is that “Nothing” (a nonexistent thing) cannot create “something” (an existing thing).
  • Genesis 1:1 Parallels John 1:1
    • John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it…14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
    • The Word is Jesus who became man in the flesh. This Word, Jesus, was with God and was God. How can that be?
      • In the development of one embryo cell, it divides into many, each one taking on a different role (ear, heart, blood, etc). Is there a spiritual pattern for God being “one”, and yet “three” (the Godhead)?
        • God is known by the worlds which He made. “For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that ARE made (seen), even His eternal power and Godhead.” Romans 1:20
        • Jesus, the Son, as well as the Holy Spirit, has all the Father’s identical, spiritual DNA. They are “one” and yet “three”.
  • Is it God or Evolution in creation?
    • Only recently has science discovered the innate intricacy of biological machinery inside a human cell. During Darwin’s time it was believed the human cell was more like a blob that changed over time. Now we know if only one piece of the machinery inside the cell changes, every other piece of machinery must change at the same time or the entire cell factory breaks down. Evolution cannot change everything at once.
  • Is God an Alien?
    • God is not an Alien because He is “outside” His creation.
      • “A star is a continuous explosion of awesome power. The power to create a universe with a billion galaxies, each with a billion stars, is beyond imagination. To create matter and energy can only be done by a Creator who is outside of nature.”

        • Hebrews 9:11 But Christ came as High Priest of the good things to come, with the greater and more perfect tabernacle not made with hands, that is, not of this creation.
    • However; the “gods” of man’s history may very well be aliens: the fallen angels who had relations with women of earth.
      • Genesis 6:1 Now it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born to them, that the sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose.
  • The first verse of God’s word introduces the reader to When, Who, and What.
    • (When:) In the beginning (at the head of all things),
    • (Who:) God,
    • (Did What) Created the heavens and the earth.
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 (flutter ie: energy) over the face of the waters.
  • The necessary elements for a universe:
    • The First Element: Time
      • Genesis 1:1a “In the beginning” – time.
    • The Second Element: Space
      • Genesis 1:1b “God created the heavens” – space
    • The Third Element: Matter
      • Genesis 1:1c “and the earth” – matter
    • The Forth Element: EnergyForces
      • Genesis 1:2 “hovers, moves, shakes”
  • Energy can neither be created or destroyed. It is a constant.
Genesis 1:3Then God (‘ĕlōhîm) said, “Let there be light”; and there was light.
Genesis 1: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.
