Genesis 1

Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God (‘ĕlōhîm) 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.
Genesis 1:Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light.
  • 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.”
  • The Menorah symbolizes the light of the world from creation. Seven candles, seven words, in seven days.

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.
  • IS IT GOOD?
    Why did God say “it is good” or “it is very good” each day during creation in Genesis chapter one?
  • Answer: Because the heavens and the earth were being prepared to run perfectly and smoothly for human habitation. When finished, God would have a universal “factory” for a healthy, whole, and happy place (without defect), for mankind to live. On each day of creation He declared “It is good”.
    He made the universe by instituting His morality, laws, boundaries, species, etc for a society that runs like a well oiled machine, and by well-oiled, I mean an anointing by the Holy Spirit.
    Anything man does contrary to God’s specifications throws a monkey wrench into the machine and causes the cogs and gears to break down, rusting without oil, finally ending in a destroyed planet and a destroyed people.
  • Then…the Light goes out.
