B'resheet 1:1 In the beginning G-d created the heavens and the earth.
In the beginning - This is the beginning of earth and time and does not refer to G-d having a beginning.
Elohiym (plural sense) created the heavens and the earth. This may imply there are separate but united entities here in the Word. (Deut. 6:4) These separate but united entities will become clear as we continue to study the Word.
These words where written by Moshe. Adonai told him what to write. The Word is G-d breathed. He is the eyewitness, testifier, and creator of these events.
Notice that the earth is one of the main focuses here. Not Mars, Jupiter, etc. The earth is a unique place and special above all other places. Only earth was chosen by Adonai to be set apart by Him. It is positioned in the exactly the right place for us to survive. Not too far away or too close to the sun for survival. Coincidence?
G-d spoke it into being. (Ps. 33:6-9)
Psalm 33:6 By "the WORD" of the L-RD the heavens were made, And by the breath of His mouth all their host. (NAS)
Atheists want you to believe Religion is the cause of all evil and that there is no G-d. They don't realize that what they believe is actually a Religion in it's own right. For to believe this world and all its beauty formed by some freak accident takes a lot of "Faith". There is order in all that was created.
Here we have the Big Bang. Where did this come from? The source of energy or power had to come from somewhere. All G-d had to do is speak and it happened. This power could not of just been there by itself in a constant state and just explode as some believe.
On page 53 of his book "The Biblical Basis for Modern Science", Henry Morris states: "The first law of Thermodynamics, states (in accordance with Gen 2:1-3) that none of the tremendous energy (or "power") of the universe is now being created, so that the universe could not have created itself. The second law (in accordance with Rom 8:20-22, as well as Gen 3:17-19) states that the available energy of the universe is decreasing, indicating that sometime in the past all energy (including matter) was available and perfectly organized, like a clock that had just been wound up. This shows that the universe must have been created, even though it could not create itself. The two laws thus point inexorably back to Gen 1:1."
B'resheet 1:2 And the earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep; and Ruach HaKodesh "Spirit of G-d" was moving over the surface of the waters.
This is Ruach HaKodesh that is symbolized by the letter "Hay". The Talmud explains that G-d used "Hay" which forms the Divine Name, Yah, to create the universe. Elohiym is active and interested in the UNI-verse. He formed it out of nothing. I begin to imagine in an empty dark cold room with nothing but black darkness. Without light there is no hope. Now imagine a light source coming into focus. What is your response?
Is it indifference or is it hope? We notice that the darkness tries to evade the light for it cannot comprehend it.
This emphases that G-d alone created the Universe and all that is in it. The first day of the week, Sunday, is referred to as Yom Rishon.
B'resheet 1:3-5 Then G-d said, "Let there be light"; and there was light. And G-d saw that the light was good; and G-d separated the light from the darkness. And G-d called the light day, and the darkness He called night. And there was evening and there was morning, one day.
there was evening and there was morning - Here we see that G-d instituted the day as going from sunset to sunset. Man came up with the idea of measuring the start of the day at midnight, not G-d.
one day - In Hebrew whenever the word "day" Yom is used with a number it always refers to a 24 hour day.
First of all, the light here was not created. The "light" is just brought to our attention. The Light, is later described by the Word, as "morning". This is not the sun because first, the sun is a creation and second, the sun is created later on.
Proverbs 8:22-23 "The L-RD possessed me at the beginning of His way, Before His works of old. "From everlasting I was established, From the beginning, from the earliest times of the earth. (NAS)
John 17:24-25 Father, I desire that they also, whom Thou hast given Me, be with Me where I am, in order that they may behold My glory, which Thou hast given Me; for Thou didst love Me before the foundation of the world. NAS
Also this is described as the First DAY! Lets not only use Aleph as the letter that corresponds to this chapter but lets also use the Hebrew alphabet to correspond to the days of creation. Aleph corresponds to the first day. Aleph - We have Head as in Creator, King; the head of a bull appointed for sacrifice, etc. This fits nicely doesn't it especially if we look at this closer. I will recap:
We have a morning star that is brought to our attention that brings light. It is certainly not Ruach HaKodesh because the Spirit was already present. The light is called good. There is also darkness.
Let the Word of G-d interpret what we just covered in the Word so far.
Revelation 22:16 I, (Yeshua), have sent My angel to testify to you these things for the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, the bright MORNING STAR."
What is this star? It is not a literal star. They had not yet been created. It brings light apart from darkness. The light had no beginning.
2 Peter 1:19-21 And so we have the prophetic word made more sure, to which you do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star arises in your hearts. But know this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture is a matter of one's own interpretation, for no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by (Ruach HaKodesh) the Holy Spirit spoke from G-d. NAS
2 Corinthians 4:6 For G-d, who said, "Light shall shine out of darkness," is the One who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of G-d in the face of (Messiah) Christ. NAS
Yeshua will be our light source during the millennium.
Revelation 21:23 And the city has no need of the sun or of the moon to shine upon it, for the glory of G-d has illumined it, and its lamp is the Lamb. NAS
Just as darkness flees when light is present, so evil cannot stand in the presence of Yeshua.
The following passage in John corresponds exactly with Genesis 1 and the meaning of our first day and the meaning of our first letter.
John 1:1-4 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with G-d, and the Word was G-d. He was in the beginning with G-d. All things came into being by Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.
All things where created by G-d through the Word. (Yeshua)
Psalm 33:6 By "THE WORD" of HaShem (L-rd), the heavens were made, and by the breath of His mouth all their hosts
Col 1:13-17 For He delivered us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities-- all things have been created by Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.NAS
Col 1:15And He is the image of the invisible God, the first-born of all creation.
What does John say about the darkness in the beginning?
John 1:5 And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. NAS
The darkness did not comprehend it.
We have Three separate individuals present clearly illustrated by the Word. They are all present and all involved in creation. They are together and considered One in unity.
