My words will be in this color today
and Biblical scriptures will be in this color today.
Today, I will be looking at Genesis chapter one.
And these questions:
What was happening before God spoke the universe into existence
What, then, was the situation before Genesis 1:1, and what does it teach us about God and ourselves?
In the beginning
the heavens and the earth.
The 'beginning' does not refer to God having a 'beginning',
but rather, the beginning of the heaven and Earth.
God is outside of this material universe He created.
God is also outside of time,
He created, time and is not in it.
We also know, that God, the Son,
was also before this universe was created:
5 Now, Father,
together with Yourself,
with the glory which I had with You
before the world was.
God planned to love us,
before He created the universe.
4 just as He chose us
before the foundation of the world,
that we would be holy and blameless before Him, In love.
5 He predestined us
to adoption as sons
through Jesus Christ to Himself,
according to the kind intention of His will
9 who saved us
and called us to a holy calling,
not because of our works
but because of his own purpose
and grace, which he gave us in Christ Jesus
before the ages began,
In the beginning...
is when God created: time.
Before for time,
God was ( eternal)
Before the mountains were born
Or You gave birth to the earth
and the world,
Even from everlasting to everlasting,
You are God.
8 “I am the Alpha and the Omega,”
says the Lord God,
who is to come,
“You are My witnesses,” declares the Lord,
“And My servant whom I have chosen,
So that you may know and believe Me
And understand that I am He.
there was no God formed,
And there will be none after Me.
There are secular physicists,
who are supposedly,
some of the greatest minds,
and have the highest I Q's
who with the help of AI....
Are now, are pretty much convinced,
this universe is a 'simulation'
( kind of like a computer game)
Well, they sort of have one thing,
kind of right....
there would have to be
Christians could have saved them a lot of time
( no need for AI computations)
just by pointing them
to the first verse in Scripture:
In the beginning
( the Creator)
the Heavens and the Earth.
And another help for physicists,
and other secular non believers,
would be the answer to their
how did God do this?
1 In the beginning was the Word,
and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God.
2 He was in the beginning with God.
3 All things came into being through Him,
and apart from Him
nothing came into being
that has come into being
What this tells me,
is that God created, the Earth and universe,
to have a love relationship,
He created Earth
18 For thus says the Lord,
who created the heavens
(He is the God who formed the earth and made it,
He established it and did not create it a waste place,
but formed it to be inhabited),
“I am the Lord,
and there is none else.
Well, this is a beginning to the study on Genesis.
