1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.

5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

6 And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.

7 And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.

8 And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.

9 And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.

10 And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.

11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.

12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

13 And the evening and the morning were the third day.

14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:

15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.

16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.

17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,

18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.

19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.

21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.

23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.

25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.

30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.

31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

Commentary for Genesis 1

Genesis is a name taken from the Greek, and signifies "the book of generation or production;" it is properly so called, as containing an account of the origin of all things. There is no other history so old. There is nothing in the most ancient book which exists that contradicts it; while many things recorded by the oldest heathen writers, or to be traced in the customs of different nations, confirm what is related in the book of Genesis.God creates heaven and earth. (1,2) The creation of light. (3-5) God separates the earth from the waters, and makes it fruitful. (6-13) God forms the sun, moon, and stars. (14-19) Animals created. (20-25) Man created in the image of God. (26-28) Food appointed. (29,30) The work of creation ended and approved. (31)1,2 The first verse of the Bible gives us a satisfying and useful account of the origin of the earth and the heavens. The faith of humble Christians understands this better than the fancy of the most learned men. From what we see of heaven and earth, we learn the power of the great Creator. And let our make and place as men, remind us of our duty as Christians, always to keep heaven in our eye, and the earth under our feet. The Son of God, one with the Father, was with him when he made the world; nay, we are often told that the world was made by him, and nothing was made without him. Oh, what high thoughts should there be in our minds, of that great God whom we worship, and of that great Mediator in whose name we pray! And here, at the beginning of the sacred volume, we read of that Divine Spirit, whose work upon the heart of man is so often mentioned in other parts of the Bible. Observe, that at first there was nothing desirable to be seen, for the world was without form, and void; it was confusion, and emptiness. In like manner the work of grace in the soul is a new creation: and in a graceless soul, one that is not born again, there is disorder, confusion, and every evil work: it is empty of all good, for it is without God; it is dark, it is darkness itself: this is our condition by nature, till Almighty grace works a change in us.

3-5 God said, Let there be light; he willed it, and at once there was light. Oh, the power of the word of God! And in the new creation, the first thing that is wrought in the soul is light: the blessed Spirit works upon the will and affections by enlightening the understanding. Those who by sin were darkness, by grace become light in the Lord. Darkness would have been always upon fallen man, if the Son of God had not come and given us understanding, #1Jo 5:20|. The light which God willed, he approved of. God divided the light from the darkness; for what fellowship has light with darkness? In heaven there is perfect light, and no darkness at all; in hell, utter darkness, and no gleam of light. The day and the night are the Lord's; let us use both to his honour, by working for him every day, and resting in him every night, meditating in his law both day and night.

6-13 The earth was emptiness, but by a word spoken, it became full of God's riches, and his they are still. Though the use of them is allowed to man, they are from God, and to his service and honour they must be used. The earth, at his command, brings forth grass, herbs, and fruits. God must have the glory of all the benefit we receive from the produce of the earth. If we have, through grace, an interest in Him who is the Fountain, we may rejoice in him when the streams of temporal mercies are dried up.

14-19 In the fourth day's work, the creation of the sun, moon, and stars is accounted for. All these are the works of God. The stars are spoken of as they appear to our eyes, without telling their number, nature, place, size, or motions; for the Scriptures were written, not to gratify curiosity, or make us astronomers, but to lead us to God, and make us saints. The lights of heaven are made to serve him; they do it faithfully, and shine in their season without fail. We are set as lights in this world to serve God; but do we in like manner answer the end of our creation? We do not: our light does not shine before God, as his lights shine before us. We burn our Master's candles, but do not mind our Master's work.

20-25 God commanded the fish and fowl to be produced. This command he himself executed. Insects, which are more numerous than the birds and beasts, and as curious, seem to have been part of this day's work. The Creator's wisdom and power are to be admired as much in an ant as in an elephant. The power of God's providence preserves all things, and fruitfulness is the effect of his blessing.

26-28 Man was made last of all the creatures: this was both an honour and a favour to him. Yet man was made the same day that the beasts were; his body was made of the same earth with theirs; and while he is in the body, he inhabits the same earth with them. God forbid that by indulging the body, and the desires of it, we should make ourselves like the beasts that perish! Man was to be a creature different from all that had been hitherto made. Flesh and spirit, heaven and earth, must be put together in him. God said, "Let us make man." Man, when he was made, was to glorify the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Into that great name we are baptized, for to that great name we owe our being. It is the soul of man that especially bears God's image. Man was made upright, #Ec 7:29|. His understanding saw Divine things clearly and truly; there were no errors or mistakes in his knowledge; his will consented at once, and in all things, to the will of God. His affections were all regular, and he had no bad appetites or passions. His thoughts were easily brought and fixed to the best subjects. Thus holy, thus happy, were our first parents in having the image of God upon them. But how is this image of God upon man defaced! May the Lord renew it upon our souls by his grace!

29,30 Herbs and fruits must be man's food, including corn, and all the products of the earth. Let God's people cast their care upon him, and not be troubled about what they shall eat, and what they shall drink. He that feeds his birds will not starve his babes.

31 When we come to think about our works, we find, to our shame, that much has been very bad; but when God saw his work, all was very good. Good, for it was all just as the Creator would have it to be. All his works, in all places of his dominion, bless him; and therefore, bless thou the Lord, O my soul. Let us bless God for the gospel of Christ, and when we consider his almighty power, let us sinners flee from the wrath to come. If new-created unto the image of God in holiness, we shall at length enter the "new heavens and new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness."

Commentary by Matthew Henry, 1710.

    Genisis 1: on day six Christ Jesus created male and female animals and mankind, and they multiplied. Genisis 2: God created Adam and put him in eden wich is in heaven and after that eve from adam. Yes there is a difference between the 6th day mankind and Adam and Eve , yes the order of things are different from genisis 1 and genisis 2 . Cain married one of the 6th day created women and also in genisis 6: we see more sons of God taking wives of the daughters of men, again pointing out that there is a deference between the two . We see that in scripture if we ask God and believe he will answer he explains or will help you understand what he has already explained. Adam is the son of God as seen in the book of Luke,Adam lived almost a thousand years and his descendants lived several hundred years, and 6th day man was given 120 years. The union of both created giants as seen in the scripture also.hope this helps.

    Faith is more than thinking. Need mind of Christ to think properly. Interesting to note that in Chapter 1:26 27. So on point with homosexual marriages and other stuff. But interesting to note is that in the verse 26 where it says, man was created in "our " image, denotes a plurality of aspects within one God. This is known as Elohim and refers to the Holy Trinity or many aspects within one God. I suggest before you put the Bible on line that you need to be Spirit filled.

    God said let there be light. Does that mean light already existed and He meant let it be? Did He mean light be created? To begin? When God was with Moses in the desert, His presence was that of a cloud of light fire at night and appeared as a cloud during the day. God said the light is good. I was looking at the sun one day and there were white clouds with in the sky with it. As I looked suddenly instead of continuing to move in one direction, they started to move in opposite direction away from the sun, with the sun in between. As the white clouds moved away, then came out of the sun yellow clouds. Moving in opposite direction horizontally out of the sun. When I saw this, I suddenly felt power enter into me. Though a man suffer all his life, a man is but a blink of Gods eyes. My knowledge is not complete. I am learning continually. I wish I had all the answers and power to bring peace to the earth. But I know God knows all of what is going on in life. To me He always will be beyond my comprehension. This is what I think about. And it 's fun for me to just ponder and ponder. Well, I need to rest. Therefore I leave you. Please email me, with Love David.

  • If only God could open our spiritual understanding,then we will see that God loves us, and has giving us Hope, Joy, power and every good things of life not only to subdue, but also, to be fruitful, flourish, multiply and to have dominion over the earth. We have the joy of everlasting, knowing fully well of our father 's gracious gift to the world. if only we can remember this in our challenges and in every faceth of our lives,then it will see that we have nothing to worry about but to keep our head up and be glad always in the Lord...This portion restores my Soul... its an everlasting promise Halleluyah!

  • Adedayo Mercy for verse 26
    Reading John 1:1-5, we will find out that The Word was with God in the beginning. Verse 1 says 'lInux the beginning was the Word, the Word was with God and God was the word ' '. So if you agree with the Bible, you will know that The word became flesh Jesus . And the Same John 1 says that by the Word was everything made and without Him there was nothing made that was made. That means God was using the Word Jesus to create everything and that means the consent of the Word Jesus , which is also God according to John 1:1 was needed in the creation process. If so, who was God now speaking to that ' 'Let us make man in our own image and likeness? ' ' If not Jesus. Now that said, if you believe in the Word in John 4:24 ' 'God is a spirit: and they that worship Him must Worship Him in truth and in Spirit ' ', then there is no reason for you now not to know that God is Jesus and God is the Spirit. The reason why He is called the HolySpirit is because there can be evil spirit but His own Spirit is Holy. I pray that God explains it to you Himself the Same way He did to me so that no indoctrination will be a veil on your face. Amen!!!

I believe this was the beginning of his master plan. How to make them Self conscious. I have much more on this subject.

    Josh millions of years ago God said in Isaiah 45:18 that He created and formed, established earth to be inhabited. He tells us He didn 't create earth to be without form or void. As you read the scriptures you check out the word was without form in Genesis 1vs 2 and find its hayah meaning became. Read 2 Peter 3 vs 5 to 7 and find out the world that was. Proverbs 8 vs 22 to 31 where wisdom speaks of God created earth and Job 38. God tells us that He knew Jeremiah before in Chapter 1 of that book. We know the elect were chosen from before this earth age spoken of in Ephesians chapter 1. They stood against Satan in that first earth age where Satan tried to steal the mercy seat he was just suppose to protect. Satan did steal a third of Gods children his followers now. God got mad and took every one off the Face of the earth. Then in Jeremiah 4 vs 22 to 27 the destruction took place and God turned off the lights. He separated the children of the light from the darkness and they are tares that the wicked one sows spoken of in Matt. 13 vs 36 to 44. Then the lights came back on and the light was good.

There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification. 11. Therefore if I know not the meaning of the voice, I shall be unto him that speaketh a barbarian, and he that speaketh shall be a barbarian unto me. 12. Even so ye, forasmuch as ye are zealous of spiritual gifts, seek that ye may excel to the edifying of the church...Their is actually other information that is far more important in the age we live, and that is getting the record correct about the true Sabbath, for the sake of mankind. Only by acknowledging the one and only true Sabbath can man come into true Obedience to God, and then into the will of God, something that our Messiah tried to get across to man, the short time He ministered to man before His crucifixion.

    GEN 1-4-20..Rom 3:18 There is no fear of God before their eyes. Is this talking about YOU! Are you blindly following man 's commandments, while Totally rejecting GOD 'S Commandments at least the most important one, that a certain fallen angel has deceived you into believing is no longer valid or that it 's been done away with. I 've got an important message for all, all ten commandments are alive and well including the 4th, the Sabbath Commandment the 7th day. This is not a Commandment for the jewish only, but for all mankind, it is a Memorial to God 's Creation, and to reject it, is an admission of disbelief in GOD being the Creator Which is rejecting GOD himself,but the fact remains we live in the information age, and their is no excuse for any to worship GOD in ignorance, the truth about how the false Sunday Sabbath came about is at your fingertips. Their was a time after the Reformation that GOD winked at man 's ignorance, but we have come a long way since then, and their is no excuse now AMEN!

    RHN my eyes are open because I have been baptized in the name of the Father,Son, and the Holy Ghost. So we disagree and God Himself can resolve this issue I do not consider as changing God,s law. But like I said Jesus Christ fulfilled all the law of God which qualified Him to be our Lord and Saviour. Jesus like I said and the Scripture says resurrected on the first day of the week this changed the covenant or agreement concerning our salvation from sin death hell and Satan with God. Jesus Christ is Lord also of the Sabbath Day. May God bless all of us and further open our eyes to his Word.

    GEN 1-4-16...Dewey, I seen what you posted in Rev 22, and I already responded to that. First about the trinity doctrine. It is not scriptural and in man 's mind it is like putting God in a straight jacket, it is no different than man can think or assume he has power to change God 's Holy Sabbath it is blasphemy. You are in defiance of God 's Law, so that would put you in league with the enemy of God, we do not have the mental, physical, theological neuron firing intelligence, or ecclesiastical power or otherwise to question debate, order, impose, restrict or legitimize any doctrine that is not biblical, God operates how and when He sees fit in any and all manners totally within His abilities, which I believe is limitless, He does not need anybody to question or try to assert somekind of supreme authority over Him. Who is man that we can assume such high mindedness or arrogance into the going on in GOD 's Kingdom. I am going to leave you with this scripture in Hebrews 4:8... For if Jesus had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day. This confirms there is no other day established as the Sabbath, it remains Saturday the 7th day. GOD DOES NOT CHANGE. I pray God opens your eyes to the truth and any one else that has the eyes to see or ears to hear. PRAISE GOD AND PRAISE HIS SON. THE END IS NEAR. AMEN!!

    RNM please refer to my reply to your post in Revealation 22. The word trinity might not be in the original biblical text but it mean three which is consistent which John 1:1 in the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word Jesus Christ was God. James 2:10 is merely testifying to the necessity of a Saviour for sinners because no sinner can keep the whole law because the law of God is perfect. Jesus tell is when he offended the Pharisees when He constantly heal people on Saturday declaring that the Son of man is Lord also of the Sabbath. God bless us all in understanding of His Word.

    GEN 1-4-15...I know SISTER KATE, you think you are on top of this trinity concept, but to tell you the truth that word is not in the original manuscript it was added to the Bible from an outside source. So I would not presume that it is carved in stone. The fact is, just in this one scripture I will show you something which should make you raise questions about the trinity doctrine yourself. in Rev 4:5... And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God. Here it is plainly stating that their are 7 spirits of God before His Throne. By limiting God to this man made DOCTRINE being the trinity, man in his own way has set his own limitations on God 's own abilities to be able to have limitless forms or beings of himself, which in my opinion is blasphemous, nothing new though, mankind is real good at that. No different than how man blasphemes God every sunday, claiming it to be God 's Sabbath, when we know the true Sabbath is the 7th day. If we disobey God 's Holy Sabbath, do you really believe His Spirit will dwell in a disobedient Vessel? In the book of James 2:10...For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. Why would James even make such a statement unless we are bound to keep all 10 Commandments. In Revelations it says Satan has deceived the whole world. No one is excluded! Just some things to think about AMEN!!

  • The reason mans knowledge of God made nature conflicts with the bible is mans knowledge of nature is growing. For an example. Man believed the sun and stars moved around the earthand it turns out the earth is spinning so it appears that the universe is moving around us. When the bible says God created the heaven and the earth it is talking about the whole universe. Heaven is all of the space in the universe and earth is all of the matter or atoms in the universe. We didn 't name our planet Earth until many years after the bible was written. To think the bible is talking about the tiny planet we live on is just about the same as thinking God created the heaven and the grain of salt. If you believe the universe is revolving around the Earth you are not using the knowledge that man has provided us. I 'm sure in time the facts that mans knowledge gives us will let us understand the bible mores and more because I believe the bible is and will always be advanced above mans knowledge

    RNM if you take the word was as in and the earth was without form you will find out that was number 1961 in the Strong 's is become or the earth became without form. Its strange that people know we live on an earth millions of years old and that we have an eternal Father who has been around and created earth to be inhabited for His family and every soul was created millions of years ago written in Job 38 vs 7 and it says the whole family meaning every soul was rejoicing. Then you have the scriptures tell us of things that ocurred in that first earth age. Example Ephesians 1 vs 4 where it says God chose the election before the foundation of the world and that word world is katabole meaning castdown overthrow. God chose the elect that stood against Satan when he was castdown because of Satans attempted overthrow. Then in vs 5 it tells you they were predestinated from that first earth age. So as we know from the scriptures the elect will stand against Satan when he comes as antichrist but the rest of the world will jump into the sack with Satan. The Book of Ephesians was written to the elect that are the chosen from before not to churches sitters who say they are elect but Gods chosen who study His words. Have you ever read Matt 13 vs 36 to 44 where Satan sends his tares wicked children followers. You know the children he stole from God in Rev. 12 vs 4. Did you read John 3 and check out the word born again well it 's born from above because after that first earth age God brought us back up to heaven where His throne is and that 's where we come from born from above to earth and we are born from water womb. But preacher 's will tell you come to me and be born again you got to join our church to be saved. Well, we are all born again when we got here and God send us His words to get back home.

    Rnm don 't know what your talking about but it sounds religious and I think I like my Way. Gen 1 vs 24 if your talking about earth creatures in the first earth age they were different animals than the ones we have in the flesh age. Yes animals were flesh and we were in spirit bodies and as it is written in Job only God could stand up to them old dinosaurs. God knew Jeremiah in the first earth age and sent him. He loved Jacob and hated Esau in the first earth age. We all shouted for joy in Job 38 vs 7 all the stars or children and the sons of God. Proverbs 8 vs 22 and on tells us how perfectly God created the earth in Isaiah 45 vs 18 and we all rejoiced as it is written with God 's wisdom in Proverbs 8. Just dig a little deeper and read the appendix 146 and learn the terms for foundation. I 've read most all the Bibles and stay with this one. Don 't read an N.I.V. or any of those new Bibles they call a Bible. Stick with the K.J.V. and If you look up all the words of the Bible with an old strong 's you 'll find the truth. Get a J.P. Green and dig deep. Stay away from religions and mans words and clear your mind of all what they ahve told you and listen to every word of God with prayer. I pray all of God 's children make it but there are conditions that have to be met and love comes first. Love God.. study and walk as He did and you and I will make it. Take care my friend.

And it so happens we have a tendency to search out God knowing the time is getting short. But I feel it necessary to give you some friendly advice, The whole idea of taking anyone 's word, as Gospel over the inspired Word of God is something that even a fairly young convert could grab onto. But you being up in the age group that is suppose to be, or have this ageless wisdom, HAH! should know better than to get carried off by this strange wind of doctrine, I 've read about it, and it does not stand with, "For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. " The true holy inspired Word of GOD. And you should know better than give yourself over to accepting Man 's Word over GOD 'S. This is just another sham, another deception do draw God 's children out of HIS Holy Light, back into the Darkness like the Adversary desires. Don 't take all this wrong we half to help each other, let 's stick to our Bible and it alone. amen! PRAISE OUR SOVEREIGN GREAT GOD OF THE 7TH DAY SABBATH, AND PRAISE KING YESHUA OUR MIGHTY MESSIAH. AMEN!!

    Reg Christ or should I say God is that light. Check out Isaiah 45 vs 18 earth created beautiful and inhabited. Google search Companion Bible Appendix 's and read 146 so you can find out about the katabole, the casting down and attempted overthrow of Satan and then when you read the word foundation in the New Testament it will have more meaning for you. Then read Ezekiel 28 Satan wanted to be a God and he tried to steal the Mercy seat and in Rev. 12 which is the outline of the Bible in vs 4 Satan stole a third of God 's children and God got mad and Jer 4 vs 22 to 27 the first flood that flooded the whole world and God turned out the lights. It 's not Noah 's flood because no boat or family. 2 Peter 3 will help on the 3 earth age 's. When the lights came back on and God seperated light from darkness I think He took those that followed Satan and put them with darkness which is Satan because if you read Matt. 13 vs 36 to 43 of children sown and on Satan sends his children followers the tares to earth just like Father sends us and the world is full of them right now. God wants His children back but most of them don 't care because they love wickedness.

So as hard as that is to comprehend, God and the Word of God are ONE, but they act separately with the same accord, in other words they both know what the other is doing at any given moment.

Abraham, his handmaid Hagar gave birth to Ishmael which became the father of the gentile nations, but still knew of the 7th day Sabbath from his father Abraham, the God of Heaven is fair and just, in every way. all of the human race at some point in time was aware of the true 7th day Sabbath but them ,like you has rejected it because of unbelief, it is deception on a world scale, like Eve in the garden being cunningly deceived into breaking God 's law, like you and the rest of mankind being cunningly deceived into breaking God 's Sabbath law, how slick is that, with Eve, physical death befell man, with mankind, spiritual death in the lake of fire.

The truth is right here in this one verse, 2 TIMOTHY 3:16... All scripture is given by inspiration of GOD, ETC. Your statement diminishes GOD 's ability and POWER, and GOD would not allowed for the Holy men to get it wrong, if so what would have been the point in writing it at all. The real truth I don 't see or hear mentioned, or talked about very much maybe by a few, where it should be shouted from the rooftops because of the vital importance of it, next to the Blood redeeming value of our Lord and Savior, and faith in the belief of His Sacrifice, and by the Grace of GOD, is the Observance of GOD 's Holy Commandments including the Holy 7th day Sabbath of GOD, by rejecting this Commandment you are rejecting the GOD of Heaven and possibly FORFEITING your name in the LAMB 'S book of LIFE. By following after the catholic religious day, you are following after the pagan beliefs of Mithraism which is the worship of the sun-god on sun-day. Which is a form of Satanism, where people offered up their babies to be thrown into an alter of fire and burnt alive just to be an offering to this sick god satan WAKE UP, TIME IS RUNNING OUT. AMEN!!

    I personally believe that the night and day were not necessarily 24 hours. The writer of Genesis had no reference for the Creation of the world. Obviously, God isn 't bound by what WE, the creatures that He created, think of as "day and night ". We cannot say with authority that it was a 24 hour period of time. It was, more likely, thousands or millions of what we call years. The author had no reference for what he was told was a night and day, so he assumed it was one of our days. For God, a millenium could be a blink of an eye. Who are we to judge? Creation is no less miraculous regardless of the time reference. How many of us could do what God did?

    Defuss the word WAS is hayah and that translates became so the earth became without form and void and if you didn 't know the earth was beautiful as Isaiah 45 vs 18 tells us then you wouldn 't understand how God knew Jeremiah before he was in his Mother 's womb or how he could say I hated Esau and loved Jacob. You wouldn 't realize that the flood that covered the world and made it without form and void in Jer. 4 vs 22-27 was that first great flood. Then you would of never looked up all the foundation words in the New Testament and found that they mean katabole which is cast down overthrow and you would of never known that Satan tried and attempted overthrow to take God 's throne and failed but the one third of God 's children that followed Satan and God got mad and turned out the light from losing his children. So God turned back on the lights and it was good. And he divided what I think was the good children of the light from the children of darkness. Just a thought.

    Genesis Chapter 1 is the beginning of all life, this is where it all began. There is no other authenticated beginning of all life but the creation of the hevens and the earth by God. One important fact to take note is that God just spoke the worlds into existence. I do believe that the creative power in the spoken Word of God determined the expanse of his creation. The length, breadth, depth and height of the worlds were determined by his divine immensity, through his wisdom and creative power that is infinite.

    The Bible is literal. People in their insolence to be smarter than God keep forgetting this. God says he created the Heavens and the Earth in 6 days. And that 's what he did. Not millions of years. Not thousands of days. But six days. Anything else is calling God a liar. Science has proven nothing. They speculate on the age of the Earth, Sun, stars and planets. Even the sedimentary layers of the Earth are being analyzed wrong. The sedimentary layers of the Earth correspond to the flood right to the tee. Each layer was formed as the water receded after the great flood.

    I think this is the beginning our time - mankind. God is speaking among his other essences - the Trinity. Verse 2 - manifests the Spirit of God. The Gospel of John tells us - in the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. The Word being God the Son. Let "us " make man in our image is to give man three parts - body, soul, and spirit.

    I believe the bible is telling us that there was nothing physical in existance before this the first day. And that includes space. Before the first day space was not needed because spirits do not take up space. I believe that the space we live in had to be created before anything else could be. This is the very start of creation before the first atom was created it had to have space to be in. I believe God created space and He called it heaven. Man is so self centered that when the bible says "created heaven and earth " he named where we live Earth. I believe the earth that was created at the beginning of the first dayis all of the atoms that are in existance today each one of them alone with not even so much as a molicule being formed. And that is why the earth had no form and darkness was in the deep. If you want to talk about how old the universe is this will put a thousand times on the longest estimation

    GEN 1-23...Using language like theophany in my humble opinion is humanistic slander to the Almighty God and to His Word, first off the word theophany 's origin is from the Greek philosophers way of explaining the Pagan mythical gods which made contact with humans. Secular Humanist eventually included the GOD of Creation under their profane umbrella 's definition. And even if the word was sound and pure, your including it in your comment was totally MISPLACED! And last their is not a human living, that has, had, or ever will have the slightest inkling of what transpired in the beginning with God and those that were with Him when He created the Earth and Man. Maybe one day we will. Those blessed, that are called up out of this World. UNTIL THEN, PRAISE THE ALMIGHTY CREATOR GOD AND HIS HOLY ALMIGHTY SON AMEN!!

    John 1:1-2 "in the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the word was God " This word "Logos " that was with God at the beginning was the Theophany before manifested in a Physical body. So God is talking to his Theophany. For example: there 's a body that 's waiting for us as soon as we leave this one, so in there we enter into that body and that 's the kind of body that God was when He said "Let us make man in our own image and in our likeness ". Lastly: According to John 1:1-2,,,that Theophany came down and was made flesh and dwelt among us, to redeem the man.He 's not talking to the Angels nor Trinity, He 's talking to his Theophany.

They believe that Jesus done away with the law, nailing it to his cross. But that 's NOT what the scripture says: MATT 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets I AM NOT COME TO DESTROY, BUT TO FULFILL...MATT 5:18 For verily I say unto you, till Heaven and Earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled....Why then is this not preached in the churches today, this is what our Messiah said, isn 't it.

    Greetings, I am confused because we claim that we believe God is the author and the Holy Spirit inspired man to write the 66 scriptures. Then why do we spend all our time trying to tear down the scriptures. I now question whether man believes there is a God. To get to Jesus we must believe in God the Creator and if we don 't how can we proclaim we believe in the Creator. We have spent all our time trying to get tithes from a people that do not believe. The example is in the scriptures. When Moses brought the people out of Egypt and showed himself night and day, fed the people and yet they turned their backs on all of his Love. If, the world believed in God and all the mega churches are praying for this world reveals that prayer without action is just that prayer.

    Before Day 1 there was zero or initial beginning . Time was non-relevant. God in his infinite wisdom is one and only one. The dimension of God is expressed as the Spirit of God versus the wisdom of God. The beginning of all things represents the initialization of the Heaven and earth as in initializing a variable by setting it to zero. So many times we start with Day 1 in relating to God 's creation when we should be starting at zero since that signifies the beginning

    GEN1-19...To answer your question Mr. Davis, I think we half to go back and look at the nature of mankind, They will take a word or verse and build a whole doctrine or belief around it, I have seen it over and over, take for instance in the book of Acts Chapter 20, verse 7, its written, And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow, and continued his speech until midnight. This is one scripture that Protestants use to declare that the LORD had changed the Sabbath to the first day of the week, which anybody with half a wit can see, their is no such command given in this scripture. But whole religions are created over these erroneous scriptures. The whole business of the GAP or 1st age was started much the same way, with the word replenish in the first chapter of Genesis, 28th verse, believed to mean repopulate the Earth, which is not true at all, a little research will prove that, the original meaning in the 1600 's meant only to fill or in this case populate the Earth, but anyway you can check for your self like anyone else, but its instances like this the some people like to jump to conclusions, combining Acts, with other scriptures in Jerimiah, then come up these wild tales of the Earth being re-created with man and beast. People just need to investigate more before going off on a tangent, 10 4. PRAISE GOD, AND PRAISE HIS HOLY SON, AMEN!!

    GEN 1-17...I did some research into this word replenish, Mr. Wilson: This word comes from an ancient word molae " which means fill. It wasn 't until 1650 a character by the name of Francis Bacon had come on the scene, and decided to add a second definition to the word replenish, that being re-fill , after 1852, Darwinism was becoming notorious and widespread, some thirty years later, people of influence began meddling as their way was, to use the power of language to enforce the theories of Darwin and Evolution, by 1892 the dictionaries in print were changed to read REFILL as the first definition of replenish, and fill was a secondary definition, where as of now, the original meaning FILL is now completely omitted, giving the word replenish and entirely new meaning! Which Satan has used to cast new shadows on the truth, using his powers of deception. And further enticing people to come up with false theories about God, using demeaning and suggestive ideas, that God can make mistakes and is not perfect, which His Children know Him to be Perfect in every way, without blemish, without fault. But in the mean time, simple deceptions like this opens the way for people such as yourself to fall into the trap, and conjure these fantastic tales, of a 1st age, 2nd age, whatever, when the Bible clearly tells us in I COR 15:45-- The FIRST MAN ADAM.

    7 words in the Hebrew. 7 stands for perfection. You can not improve on perfection. The sun the moon the stars would not be created until three days later then Adam on the sixth day. There is a pattern being set here. Exo.20:11 This pattern is that man would work six days and rest on the Sabbath. The Sabbath is a type of the Kingdom which all those who will believe ALL that the prophets have spoken will receive very soon. The reason that Satan know the time is short is because this pattern is not messed up in Satan 's mind. Adam was created just over 6018 years ago according to the generations listed in Genesis 5 11 and then in Matt.1 and Luke 3. We are running on overtime this is the mercy of our loving heavenly Father waiting on His children to come to perfection as the Messiah told us to do in Matt.5:48. So what is your excuse?

God rested on the seventh day, the fifth day after the moon was cerated. The subsequent days of rest would be on the 12th, 19, 26.

She is speaking as a ruler she is not more than one person, but using a figure of speech to emphasize that she represents the whole of her country. Also GOD is spirit neither male nor female so "man " in GOD 's image - this is man 's spiritual creation and the second chapter focuses on the body soul part of man being formed, made, and created.

  • This is one of the greatest prophesy in the Bible.Our spiritual lives are void and without the form of God, the light of Jesus Christ.We are in darkness without Jesus shining within us.This light can only come into being when the Father,almighty God calls us to salvation through his son Jesus Christ.At that moment light enters and the darkness is expelled.When God calls,separates his people into his self again the earth will be full of darkness until God creates a new heaven and earth for his people.God is still calling people in every nation through salvation in his son Jesus Christ.That call and light is universal.I believe God can speak to one person,to a nation or to the universe,LET THERE BE LIGHT, and spiritual revival will come where he has spoken his WORD.

    This is truth. When God said lets make man in our likeness and in His image, this simply means the way he imaged you and I in His Mind before he created us. In His likeness meaning the way he liked. This is why you yourself look absolutely nothing like me. We look nothing like God for He is spirit wich makes sense to say that God created us all in his image. His image meaning the way he visioned every one of us fat skinnt, short, tall, black, white. For example... before a building is built, the builder first draws it in his image the way he likes. The same way a fashion designer would design different clothes.

These thing can not be done in the FLESH, but what you are not recognizing is that those things can be done in the SPIRIT. Here is an example--The Lord God formed man from the DUST. Dust is anything useless, worthless or no good for nothing. So is this statement referring to a fleshly body being formed out of DUST or is it referring to a Spirited person who was useless, worthless and no good for nothing? God is a SPIRIT so one must stay Spiritually Focused as you read. The Bible is the Greatest Book ever written by man.

    Truly, and atheist is nothing more than someone who has decided that he doesn 't believe in God. Romans 1 says that God has made Himself known to all creatures. No one has an excuse. If you consider yourself an atheist, and will read the Bible because it seems interesting, then you will learn nothing. God is sovereign and He commands your very heart-beat. Romans 9 says He endures 'vessels of wrath ' in order to show His glory in the lives of His 'vessels of life '. Are you a vessel of wrath or life? Only God knows. But one thing is for sure, you are not getting any younger, and one day he will call you home to stand in judgment to answer for your life. Because He is the potter and you are the pottery, your only hope is to submit and humble your pride and ego and beg for mercy until He responds. Otherwise you are nothing more than kindling for the fires of hell. This is truth and you can either accept it or deny it and plug your ears. Perhaps you have come across this site for a reason?

GOD our FATHER is working out HIS Will in the Earth for His One sole purpose and that is to bring about the birth of His chosen Offspring, the children of GOD, GOD is producing a multitude of Children that He can Love like in a small an similar way, how a human mother and father loves their child, we don 't have the imagination or thoughts of how GOD is wanting to SHOWER his children with unimaginable gifts of Love. But the Word of God gives a Brief glimpse in Corinthians. PRAISE OUR HEAVENLY FATHER, PRAISE THE SON OF GOD, AND PRAISE THE HOLY SPIRIT AMEN!!!

    Chatauna sorry. I will believe the Word of God not the word of man. Gods word says, God IS a Spirit. Man tries to twist and turn everything that they read. There is no twisting or turning this. If God is a Spirit than I must think spiritually in order to understand what the Spirit is trying to tell me. One can not mix fleshly things with spiritual things. God bless.

    Hello Linda Templet: I think you have misunderstood me. I have never stated that there was two gods. There is one God and he is the Father of us all. Ephesians 4: 5 "One Lord, one faith, one baptism. There is only one God, 1 John 5:7 "For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. Also you will find that 1 Timothy 3: 16 states that God was manifested in the flesh, this person is Jesus Christ. I do not have to prove Jesus Christ exist. God is Omnipotent, Omnipresent, and Omniscient. I do not have to prove Gods existence. You explain miracles. A presence has to fulfill these things that many people have experienced in their lives. This Omnipotent, Omnipresent, and Omniscient presence is God. Jesus Christ states in Revelation 1: 8 I am Alpha and Omega the beginning and the ending. There is only one God of both heaven and earth.

    Hello Chatauna: I read your comments. It seems to me that you seem to see what I see. The Bible speaks of the god of the earth and the God of the heaven in the Book of Revelations. Now what I see and totally understand is that I am reading a Spiritual Book not a book concerning the making of a human body. Let me stand on this. Is there a God? The Atheist would say "No " and the Christian would say "Yes ". Now I am going to say to both of you PROVE IT. This is a constant fight that cannot be proven. There will never be any peace, love, or togetherness in this world until we stop trying to prove each other wrong. Could the Atheist and the Christian peaceably come together in unity if the Image of a Body was taken away as we study this Spiritual Book? This Spiritual Book of wisdom and knowledge is to change a persons Life and a persons Ways. We must rightly divide the Word of God. When you see the word "God " in the Bible its not always referring to the Spiritual God most of the time it is referring to the god of the earth--MANKIND. We need to understand and rightly divide what we are reading. Amen?

    Linda John 1 in the beginning was the Word and the Word was God. Jesus Christ is Immanuel meaning God with us. Isaiah 45 vs 21 No other God and no other Saviour and there is none besides Him. Now millions of years ago God created the earth beautiful and inhabited Isaiah 45 vs 18. In proverbs 8 wisdom was with God when creating earth and then in vs 31 rejoicing with the sons of men. Then in Job 38 vs 7 speaking of creation God has the whole family and every soul that was created added to the subject of creation. So, When God our Christ was speaking who do you think He was speaking to?

    Can we spiritually understand what God is saying when He said, "let US make man in our image AFTER our likeness "? What sort or kind of Image is God 's Image? The Bible says that God IS A SPIRIT. Spirit is the thinking, feeling, motivating part of man. This verse is not talking about a physical body being made at all it is talking about a certain kind of Spirit being made AFTER the likeness of God. God did not make my body He made my Spirit AFTER His likeness. Understandest what you are reading? This is where we are failing. One must rightly divide the Word of God. We are reading a Spiritual Book that makes us feel certain things as we read it, this book makes us think, and this book motivates the people, who understand what they are reading, to stand up against all evil which is trying to take over our country. God is a SPIRIT. This book teaches US how to STAND UP for the good of all people. So let us Christians get out there and do like God instructs us to do. Let US make man in our image AFTER OUR GODLY LIKENESS.

    Hello RNM: There are many scriptures. Ephesians 4: 4 thru 6 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all ". Remember the Bible is talking to saved people. These people have followed Acts 2: 38 to become save and have the one faith. This faith is in Jesus Christ by following the Apostles Doctrine. One baptism, which is in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins. One Lord who is Jesus Christ, who is God manifested in the flesh. We, who hold onto the faith, have felt the true godly sorrow that pricks a person in their heart which leads to true repentance, 2 Corinthians 7: 9 and 10. This true repentance leads to salvation through which you are filled with the true Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in other tongues as the spirit of God gives utterance. AMEN

    Wayfarer if you read Isaiah 45 vs 18 you find that the earth in the beginning was created beautiful and inhabited. Proverbs 8 vs 22 to 31 will tell you wisdom was with God and at the end you see the sons of men were rejoicing as in Job 38 vs 7 on the same subject the stars sang rejoicing and the sons of God and that was every soul created. Then there was a katabole meaning cast down overthrow by Satan. Google search the Companion Bible appendix then scroll down to 146 to worlds. Stars are children and when you read Rev. 12 Satan set up a political party and then with his lies he stole a third of Gods children. Anyway in Jeremiah 4 vs 23 to 27 you see the destruction or the earth turned to wilderness without form. This Genesis here is rejuvenating the earth again and we were sent here for the earth age of salvation.

You cannot pick one scripture and base an entire belief system around it, there are multiple thousands of words and scriptures we have to take into consideration. There is a path to God, and it is sound and biblical, we cannot make it up as we go, that is not acceptable to God.

However, as I stated for a true Christian Sabbath is every day. We are to live save every day. We are not supposed to pick one day and live saved. If mankind wants to change the Sabbath, that is between them and God. In the end, the prime directive during this Dispensation of Grace is following Acts 2: 38. Getting saved, living saved, and staying saved is what we are to do.

    I agree with RNM about Gen 1:1 We don 't know when this was. All I can say is that Earth is old though life, trees and herbs on earth are still young for earth was created in the beginning,and in the beginning there is no time stated. Human time only started in Gen 1:3-5. And I agree as well with ECR, it doesn 't matter how old is the earth, because it 's nothing to do with our salvation.

    If you all are going to post your comments at least state your comments accurately, Gen 1 1 says in the beginning God created the Heaven and Earth. We don 't know when this was because it doesn 't state that. We do know in Verse 2 it says the earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep, and the spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. Verse 3 And God said let there be light, and there was light. verse 4 5 So God called the light day and the darkness night and the evening and morning were the 1ST DAY all that was, created on the first day was the SUN, quit trying to rewrite the Bible It wasn 't until the 4th day that God created the moon and stars.

    Hello Judy You are correct. The God we serve is Omnipotent He is all powerful , Omniscient He knows all things , and Omnipresent He is everywhere. Science is not always correct. When it comes to science verses The Bible and God, we should always stay with God. If science backs up God s word then alright. However, when science is in opposition of God and his word, we are not even supposed to give it second thought, 1 Timothy 6 20 O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called For years science has stated the Big Bang Theory is how the earth began. Now some scientist is saying it is false the science does not add up. God and his word supersede science.

    Hello RNM In my post I did state it is alright to know how old the Earth is, however there has been other conversations and debates on this subject. In the end, knowing how old the earth is does not save or tell a person how to become saved. The most important thing is telling people how to be saved and stay saved. Sometimes the enemy uses conversations such as how old is the earth and how many animals was on the ark to distract us from the prime directive. Knowing how old the earth is will not stop the coming destruction.

When these days commenced, the sun, moon, and stars were already in existence, their creation being referred to at Genesis 1 1. However, prior to these six days of creative activity the earth proved to be formless and waste and there was darkness upon the surface of the watery deep. Ge 1 2 Apparently, a swaddling band of cloud layers still enveloped the earth, preventing light from reaching its surface.

    Our unimaginably vast universe gives evidence that God 's power and energy are inexhaustible. Read Isaiah 40 26. Modern science is aware that matter can be changed into energy and energy into matter. Our sun, a star, provides an example of matter being turned into energy. Every second, the sun converts about four million tons of matter into sunlight and other forms of radiant energy. The small fraction of that energy that reaches us is sufficient to sustain life on the earth. Obviously, tremendous power and energy were required to create not just the sun but also all the other billions of stars. God possesses the energy that was needed and much more.

    Hello JESSEE WANYEKI I humbly ask, does it really matter how old the Earth is? Knowing how old the Earth is does not change the fact that now during the Dispensation of Grace, which is the 6th Dispensation that people need to be saved by following Acts 2 38. People have to ask themselves, is knowing how old the Earth is going to help me get saved? Is knowing how old the Earth is going to help me make the rapture? Is knowing how old the Earth is going to stop the tribulation from coming and the destruction of this Heaven and Earth? The answer to all of these questions is no. It 's alright to know how old the earth is, but what does the knowledge accomplish? Our time is not God s time. Therefore, it does not matter how old it is. It will be destroyed.

I do not care where God came from or how he got started the thought that this Divine Being has the power to create life, destroy life, revived life, and dispel any other beliefs when he gets ready automatically lets me know that we serve a mighty God who created everything.

There were no people outside of the Garden of Eden. The first man created was Adam. The first woman created was Eve. She had multiple children. It is not impossible to imagine a woman having more than 50 children. The greatest officially recorded number of children born to one mother is 69, to the wife of Feodor Vassilyev b. 1707 c.1782 , a peasant from Shuya, Russia. In 27 confinements she gave birth to 16 pairs of twins, seven sets of triplets and four sets of quadruplets.

God named the light day, and the darkness He named night. note two facts,1. god , not man named the light and darkness. this very significant. it shows the God is the Lord of both day and night, not man. Light and darkness are both part of God 's creation. both are good both have their purpose and function in God 's creation.

  • R Daisley for verse 2
    Firstly, in verse 1, God created the heavens and the earth, no questions about that,now in verse 2 we are told that the earth was without form and void. We have to determine what void means and also what without form means. someone else in their comments above referred to the words Tohu and Bohu. Tohu refers to a break down,a mess, in shambles or confused. This is what "without form " implies so in actuality an influence or some sort has taken place. so some action has changed the original intent of what was in verse 1, "Order " It was once orderly but now has become confused. So a sentencing has been passed, the state of things has ben judged. So apparently satans fall may have taken place at this juncture, the earth was also void. Naturally meaning emptiness, waste. In referring to satan, Ezekiel says in chapter 28 15 Thou was perfect in thy ways until iniquity was found in thee. So Ezekiel here was privileged to some information or given a view of what was to be. In verse one he says the word of the Lord came unto me. When we look at Isaiah 34, Isaiah 45 we clearly get the understanding of the break down

    Ibrahim Leadley don 't believe everything you hear from traditional teachers. They preach milk which being saved is good but that 's all they know so they preach it over and over and most people on this Bible have been saved every time you have walked in a church that 's what they preach but we are here for meat and not spoiled meat of traditions of men claiming they are going to create their own salvation by flying away call it rapture or chickens melting like soup following the ignorance of them that teach it and if you don 't stand with God and put your gospel armor on that 's what happens to them that think they will fly. The vile one comes in peace as Daniel tells us and Revelation tells us that instead of Christ or antichrist comes looking like the lamb with power but speaks as the dragon cause God wants us to know it is the dragon. So why fly away from someone peacefully acting like CHRIST. Did in deep in Ezekiel 13 and you will see God hates Devine dreamers who cover His out reached arms of salvation by teaching His children that they can fly to save their souls. Just stay in this Bible and discern the truth with prayer and as far as traditions of men and there teachings of pulling verses away from the subject, object and article and tossing them into a made up idea mixing their own opinion with it that isn 't what Father God intended it to be well don 't think to much on what they say.

Moses had one main message to Pharaoh from God, let my people go. I have one main message follow Acts 2 38. This is what it takes to be saved.

    Part 1 of 2 Hello Ibrahim Leadley In reality I have talked about different subjects throughout this website. I think I have posted on about 42 different pages. Another reason why I am repeating myself is because some people are asking me or further discussing the same subject. However, regardless it is still very important that people understand that we are truly living in the last days and that they need to be saved. In reality the Bible is only telling the sinner to get saved, because when you look at it if a person stops fornicating and still is not saved according to Acts 2 38 when the rapture takes place they are still lost and is not going up in the rapture.

    Hello Word I know that some people are scared to even think about God destroying this heaven and this earth with fervent heat, 2 Peter 3 10 and 12, because they cannot imagine it. However, just like when Noah was preaching it is going to rain. No one believed him either. It had never rained upon the earth. Genesis 2 5 And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground . So therefore, people did not believe because they had never seen it. This is what is happening today. People do not want to believe that God will destroy what he has created and start anew. However, no matter how much a person does not want to believe this still does not stop it from happening. It did not stop the rain in Noah s days. This is why it is very important to follow Acts 2 38 before it is too late.

    Hello Word As I have informed you before, I do not teach traditions of men. I teach the word of God. If I taught traditions of men then I would be teaching the incorrect baptism, but I teach the correct baptism according to the Book of Acts. Jesus said it, Peter clarified it on the day of Pentecost, and the Apostles carried it out. Everything I have stated I have substantiated it with scripture. It is true the Bible is the living Word of God, therefore I will never know everything because each time you read it God reveals a little more. However, what I have spoken is the truth. If people do not believe no more than Acts 2 38 then I have done my job as a servant of God. I want to see people saved, truly saved. Time is coming to an end, and a lot of people will be lost if we do not teach them what it takes to be saved.

He stated this before John had his vision on the Isle of Patmos when he wrote Revelation 21 1. The word shall means it is going to take place.

    John Serem I just want to tell you that it is ages and eons of time. First earth age was turned into a wilderness but not to a full. Earth was created beautiful in Isaiah 45 vs 18 and in Jeremiah 4 vs 22 to 27 was turned to without form and void as spoken in Genesis 1 vs 2. The heaven and this earth will never be destroyed it is just eons and ages of time and what happens during those times. Only melt down is rudiments of wickedness and preachers who teach traditions of men and not the truth of the scriptures. They mislead God 's children and that is a serious sin.

    Hello John Serem Are you stating that the same heaven that is spoken of here in Genesis is the same that is spoken of in Revelation? The heaven that is spoken of in Genesis will be destroyed by God with fire. Then a new heaven and a new Earth will come, Revelation 21 1 "And I saw a new heaven and a new earth for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away and there was no more sea. "

    Genesis basicaly shows us the real picture of heaven and warns us against the major mistakes that seems to be minor in the eyes of a common christians.......and that is the same heaven that we are told in the book of Revelation.....the last book of the BIBLE reflects the first book in the BIBLE.....GOD is the "alpha " and "omega ", "the first " and "the last "

    Hello Ibrahim Leadley I believe God being Omnipotent is powerful enough to have guided those men to have written what he wanted in the scriptures. 2 Timothy 3 16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. Those men were guided by God to write what they wrote. The Old Testament was written by people whom the spirit of the Lord was upon. The New Testament was written by men who were filled with the Holy Ghost. They had respect for God.

    Surely the Bible is the work of human writers. Dating from the Bronze age to the time of Christ. Inspiration may have been divine, but the pen was assuredly guided by human hand.

    Our God is a loving God who would not create us His precious children into the earth without form void and full of darkness. So it is obviously true that He had to put in place the necessities of human life before creating Adam and Eve to survive on the earth. So we can see that Satan 's real intention was and is to make life so void, formless, and full of darkness so that man definitely looses sight of his Creator. Thanks be to God that through Christ the incorruptible and indestructible Gift the gap caused by Satan has been bridged. We thank God for the continual supervision of His people by the indwelling of the HOLY SPIRIT.

    Hello Paul Porter I would not change a thing in the Bible. Let me tell you why. A very long time age I studied where the Bible comes from and what I actually saw with my own eyes is that there is very little change from the original, to the Great Bible, to the King James Version in translation. What I mean by this is that the meaning of the scripture is still intact. The message has not been tampered with. These new versions, a lot of them distort the Bible, the meaning of the scripture, and the context. Now if someone wanted to change the wording then just change the words like thy to you perhaps something like that, but to change a lot of words to construct sentences in our language unless God gives inspiration to that person, will alter the meaning of the text. There is an old saying, if it ain t broke don t fix it . Why tamper with the word of God. See we have forgotten the scripture where it says the Holy Ghost will teach you all things and bring all things back to your remembrance whatsoever God has said to us, John 14 26. I rely on the Holy Ghost for teaching, revelation, and understanding.

    Hello Tom T Each day in which something was created God ended with and the evening and the morning was the . He either had Moses write it was the first, second, third, etc. day. The Heaven and the Earth that is spoken of in verse one is the Heaven and the Earth you see now. Because in verses 9 and 10 he gathered the waters under the heaven and then he placed the Earth there also. Then in Chapter 2 verse 1 leads you to believe that there is more than just one heaven. Instead of saying heaven and earth the scripture states that there are heavens and the earth. Naturally we see the heaven which is above us. Then there is what some people call the heaven or universe or galaxy whatever further above the heaven. I know that according to scripture there are at least three heavens. 2 Corinthians 12 2 I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, whether in the body, I cannot tell or whether out of the body, I cannot tell God knoweth such an one caught up to the third heaven. Exactly how many heavens there are I do not know but I do believe that there is more than one Isaiah 42 5 states Thus saith God the Lord, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein Then there is a heaven in which we do not see that is where God, the angels and other beings and creatures reside, Revelation Chapter 4.

    I have read the Bible several times and of course it was basically of it 's time and displays the level of knowledge posessed by the authors and editors. Genesis 1 is quite beautiful as a composition if you don 't take the words literally it means much more. Obviously it is written from a Judao Christian perspective so has to reinforce that kind of dogma. It 's a little outdated now perhaps someone shoul upgrade the current Bible into 21st century language so the faithful can understand just what they are being asked to believe, Peace to all.

    Genesis 1 1...Is taken from the old King James Other Bibles written after the old King James use the word Heavens In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. And they get that word from verses 6,7 8, where God calls the firmament heaven and that would be the first heaven where the birds fly. Verses 14 through 17 God creates the second heaven and places the sun, moon, and stars in it And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth. That would be the second heaven So here we go... In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. Verse 1 of Genesis is the whole of God 's creation In verse 2 and following is God 's explanation of His creation and what took place in the six days of creation. You will note in verse 1 that God created the heaven Singular and the earth. This heaven that God created I believe is the heaven where God and the angles reside the heaven we cannot see. The bible talks about there being three heavens one is where the birds fly the second heaven is where the sun, moon, and stars are. And the third heaven is everywhere, as though nothing else existed This is where God is. God is omnipresent. He is everywhere at once. God is the alpha and the omega The beginning and the end The I am that I am. Please respond to this

    Hello Gabriel I would like to add to my comment that I posted which I hope will come out today or tomorrow. God is going to burn this heaven and this earth up with a fervent heat.2 Peter 3 12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Matthew 13 40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire so shall it be in the end of this world. Then Revelation 21 1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away and there was no more sea. In the very end, God is not going to redo this heaven and this Earth. He is going to burn up this heaven and this Earth and put a new one in their place. So whether or not we send people to Federal prison or just give them fines for abuse God is still going to destroy everything in the end.

    Hello Gabriel Are you referring to how society treats animals, as in abuse? I do not believe that animals should be abused. However, I do not think that they are on the level as human. If a person is caught abusing them they should not be handed a Federal indictment. A fine and or community work is sufficient. We are to be good stewards over the things that God has given us dominion over. Does this mean that we cannot kill them for food and clothing? The answer is no. Those people who view animals on the level of human need to understand that animals have no souls. In Genesis 2 7, Adam was the one that God breathe in his nostrils the breath of life and he became a living soul. When Noah built the Ark and the animals and the Noah, his wife, and their three sons and their son s wives entered the Ark the scripture states that only 8 souls were saved. This scripture is significant because it denotes the fact that God recognized the humans with souls and the animals did not have souls. If animals had souls then God would have had it written that every soul in the Ark was saved instead of distinguishing that only 8 were saved. 1 Peter 3 20 Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.

    Genesis has served to address questions held my many. How could you begin to explain what can not be understood? Genesis has done that for many who had no understanding of science and in times before there was an opportunity for education. Genesis fills in the void that is ignorance. It is certainly not a historical record but it is certainly filled with good lessons and principles that should not be wasted even though our understanding of the world and the universe has expanded in modern times.

    Evangelist Chatauna Robinson Well, if you notice in the word Romans 9 and Malachi 1 that God loved Jacob and hated Esau you have to realize God lived with them and also read Jeremiah 1 vs. 2 and 3 and God knew Jeremiah before He place him in his mothers belly. Also you can go to the appendix 's of the Companion Bible and read app. 146 and it will direct you to the verses of the usage of the word foundation and it will help you to understand the New Testament and the mystery of God of the first earth age. Also the side notes on the pages of a Companion Bible help a great deal in understanding the word. We know God created a beautiful earth and all the stars sang and the sons of God shouted for joy and that 's the whole batch of souls God ever created in Job 38vs 7. God created a beautiful home for all of us in the beginning millions of years ago Proverbs 8 vs 22 27 so just read the Bible, have an old Exhaustive Strong 's Concordance and clear your mind of the teachings by men and just forget what all of them said.

Jeremiah 1 vs 5 comes to mind where God says before God formed him in his mothers belly God knew him. Then God says before Jeremiah was out of the womb God sanctified and ordained him as a prophet unto the nations and that 's why you want to read the whole book caus it was to us.Jeremiah has important information about false teachings Anyway God lived with Jeremiah before he was in his mothers belly. Lived with us all in the first earth age.

In 2 Peter vs 3 tell us of the heaven and earth that was of old speaking of that first earth age standing out of water and in water and we know that it was beautiful as told to us in Isaiah 45. In 2 Peter 3 vs 6 speaking of that earth age before the world that was overflowed with water and perished. We know that destruction took place in Jeremiah 4 vs 22 to 31 and also in vs.27 you notice that earth itself was not to a full end so earth was just fine but it was a wasted wilderness. No Noah 's family or boat or bird or twig God said in Hebrew He submerged it and wash it. Then in 2 Peter 3 vs 7 Peter tells us that the earth he is standing on is and this flesh age is reserved for judgment of ungodly men. That 's what this earth age is about to make a choice Father who loves us or Satan and wickedness. I will have more.

    Gayle in Isaiah 45 vs 18 we learn God created earth beautiful, established perfection implied, to be inhabited and NOT without form and void. And in Proverbs 8 vs 22 to 31 we learn wisdom was with God creating earth and nothing was created in chaos when wisdom is there. Don 't miss who was there with God, wisdom, and the sons of men. God told Job in chapter 38 vs 7 after explaining creation and putting the earth in motion that the stars sang rejoicing and the sons of God shouted with joy and we know that is every soul created In Genesis 1 vs 2 the world without form and void. And I 'll look up the rest of the story I 'm very old and need sleep but I want to get it right to the point

    Hello Gayle Adcock Didn 't nothing happened. If I can say it like this, the writer Moses inspired by God let you know that God created both the heaven and the earth. Then he went on to explain to the reader how he done it. It s like reading a good book the writer catches your attention and then explains what caught your attention. For a very long time people have been trying to find fault in the Books of the Bible. They have been trying to discredit the validity of the creation. However, through faith a true Christian does not have to have proof that it happened. We believe that it happened without a shadow of a doubt. The trick of the enemy is to get us debating everyday all day about things like this and not focus on the true purpose of this time period we are now in, the Grace Age or the Dispensation of Grace. Under this Dispensation of Grace you must follow Acts 2 38 in order to be saved. If you do not then you will become lost. If you happen to live during the tribulation period then you will have to make a choice to either get your head cut off or take the mark of the beast, the 666.

    Hello Vince You can explain anything you want. I know that our time is not God s time, 2 Peter 3 8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day . Some people may say that for each creation it took God one thousand years based on this scripture. I know that the 7 days of creation does not give the time span in which it happened. I do not believe that it took him one thousand years to make a man. The point is God is the author of time. He can do things in one second or one thousand years. When he comes back to get his saints he is going to change them in a twinkle of an eye. 1 Corinthians 15 52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed . It still does not negate the fact that there is more than one heaven. Listen we can debate about the creation all day. Unless you have true faith in God you will still question the creation. I do not question it, because if the Bible states it was done then it was done. I have experienced Acts 2 38 therefore I truly believe in what the word states.

    Hello Paul Barker I do not understand your point about Adam having a soul? Man is made up of body, soul, and spirit, 1 Thessalonians 5 23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless into the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ . The reason why I stated that he has a soul is because after God breathe the breath of life into him he became a living soul, therefore he has a soul. The point is that God, who inspired Moses to write the first five books of the Bible, had him distinctly write that particular difference between man and the other creations he made. The other fact is that there is nowhere in the Bible where it mentions souls that it refers to animals. So even if you wanted to argue the point that Adam became a living soul instead of having one, then the other humans that came from Adam had a soul as well. Once again the important thing here is that God made it a specific point to make sure that Moses wrote the difference between the creations. After the flood and everyone was destroyed the Bible only mentioned that 8 souls were in the Ark. We know that there were animals in there, so then the 8 souls were human. This is another distinction that God had Moses to write. In the end, all of these people who are saying that their animals are like human they are not. They have no SOULS.

    Evangeist Chatauna Robinson and George, Some scholars say man was created on the 6th day, and some scholars, for all their credentials, are still ignorant, as evidenced by the fact they do not believe in the divine inspiration of the Bible. But clearly, Adam and Eve were both created on the sixth day, according to verse 27, and GOD spoke to them in verses 28 and 29. Also, Ev. Robinson, you mentioned the soul. According to Gen 2 7, Man IS a soul, not Has a soul. "...God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and man BECAME a living soul. " Emphasis mine The difference being GOD spoke the animals into existence, but HE took a more personal approach with man, choosing to form man and breath life into him personally. Dust of the earth breath of life living soul.

    I would like to make a correction. God created man on the sixth day in Chapter one. He had it explained in Chapter two how he done it. Now some scholars say that he created man on the seventh day. But in Chapter one it clearly states that he created him and then at the very end of this chapter he states that the morning and the evening were the sixth day.

    Part 3 of 3 Also there is another very important lesson here with re accounting the creation with the animals. The fact that God distinctly let it be written by Moses in the same Chapter to show that man was created with a soul and the animals were not. 2 Timothy 3 16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness Out of the mouth of two are three a witness is established. In regard to animals not having any souls, when God had them get on the Ark with the animals, God let it also be written that there were only 8 souls on that Ark therefore the animals were not counted as having souls. 1 Peter 3 20 Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.

    Part 2 of 3 Moses restated not only about the animals, but the herbs and some other things. The reason why he restated what happened about the animals because he wanted the reader to know that God brought those same animals that he had created unto Adam to name. Have you ever read a good book or seen a good movie, well the author always brings the reader up to speed about the events that happened in some point or another in the story? Even a good miniseries at the beginning of each day the miniseries airs it gives a re account of the previous day events. This is what happened with Moses. The Bible is the truth.

    Part 1 of 3 Hello George Hartwell There are not two different accounts. In Chapter One this is the actual account of the creation. In Chapter Two this is restating or a recount of what happened in Chapter One. If you read the first four verses of Chapter Two especially Verse 4 you will find that after God rested then the author, which was Moses, began to re account the previous activities by starting off the sentence with These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens, . Not only did Moses restate the facts that happened in Chapter one, but he added what happened on the seventh day as well, God made man.

    Hello Evangelist Chatauna Robinson. I can see in Genesis Chapter 1 verses 24 26, God made animals before humans. I can see in Genesis Chapter 2 verses 7 19, God made humans before animals. Why is it that, in Genesis, there are two accounts of the Creation? Why do they contradict each other? Only one can be right which one? I have noticed that there are two accounts of the flood as well. If the bible is inspired by God, why did he do this? I think that there must be a hidden meaning in the existence of multiple accounts of the same event but with contradictory details but I cannot think what this meaning could be. What do you think?
