…a Bible student's notes…

In Beginning……..

In Beginning……..

Genesis 1:1 – Elohim created “out of nothing” the heavens and the earth

Psalm 33:6-9 – How? …by the Word of His mouth

Isaiah 45:18 – the earth was not created “formless and void,” – created to be inhabited

Jer. 4:23 – earth becomes formless and void, cities broken down

Isaiah 24:1 – God made it formless and void

Job 38:29, 30 – “face of the deep” is frozen

Genesis 1:2 – Spirit of God warms the “face of the deep” – the “face of the waters”

Therefore, the original earth was created “bara” – out of nothing – beautiful and was inhabited.  The judgment of the earth in v. 2 had to come about because of Lucifer’s (the messianic cherub) pride and subsequent fall:  Ezek. 28:11-17 and Isa. 14:12 ff.

Hopefully, you will not find it difficult to believe God when He tells us that the original earth was not created formless and void; and that it was made to be inhabited – and it was inhabited – but not creatures “IN HIS IMAGE.”  They had cities according to Jeremiah 4:23.  Satan (Lucifer) was the “messiah” during that time (as well as now, btw).

(Verse 2, in Genesis 1, should begin, “The earth ‘became,’” – same word as Lot’s wife “became” a pillar of salt.)

Another thing that could have happened between verses 1 and 2:  dinosaurs? Job, chapters 40 and 41.

And…..another:  Job: 38:29, 30 – “From whose womb has come the ice? And the frost of heaven, who has given it birth?  Water becomes hard like stone, and the “face of the deep” is imprisoned.”

FYI – Genesis 1:1 is composed of 7 words in Hebrew – God’s number of perfection, showing the completion of that which is in view.  (See Ps. 12:6)  Also, verse 1 is made up of 28 letters (4 x 7).  Four (4) is the number of creation; i.e.  4 corners of the earth, 4 winds, 4 seasons, etc.

Twenty-four hours in a day were created for the restoration of the earth.  Jesus said in John 11:9 – “Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day?…”  Keep in mind that He is The WORD and He was with God, the Father, in the creation and restoration of the earth.  Also, remember that destroying the doctrine of the literal 24-hour days in Genesis, destroys the way that God has written His Word concerning the Sabbath Day.  2 Peter 3:8 says that we can be ignorant of something:  “that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.”  Verse 9 goes on to say that the “Lord is not slow about HIS PROMISE…” 

We have been given a “time table” – so to speak – as to when the Lord will return and establish His Kingdom – when the “government will be upon His shoulders.”  It will be on the 7th day (7,000 years from Genesis 1:2).  This doctrine is the only doctrine that satan does not want you to know.  He loves ignorance on this subject because he will be replaced.

Earth is just one of innumerable provinces in God’s kingdom:  Job 1:6; 2:1; Isa. 14:13.  Satan assigned the earth in Ezek. 28:14.  Kingdom in ruins:  Gen 1:2a; Isa. 14:16, 17; Jer. 4:23-28 (sun darkened).

One more thing:  It is most important that the Spirit of God be allowed to move and guide our lives:  John 3:3-8; Romans 8:5, 9, 14; Galatians 4:29; 2 Corinthians 5:17, 18.

HIS WORD IS SPIRIT, LIFE AND LIGHT – see John 1, for example….and John 6:63.
