Genesis is the first creation story. God creates, establishes, and puts everything into motion. After putting all of this in motion he then rests. He creates everything on earth in just seven days. Before creation Gods breath was hovering over a formless void. God made earth and all of the living creatures on earth out of nothing. There was not any pre-existent matter out of which the world was produced. Reading Genesis 1 discusses where living creatures came from and how the earth was formed. It’s fascinating to know how the world began and who created it all. In Genesis 1 God is the mighty Lord and has such strong power that he can create and banish whatever he would like. His powers are unlike any others. The beginning was created from one man only, God.
Genesis 1 is titled “The Beginning” discussing how the earth was formed. The very first paragraph discusses God creating the heavens and the earth. This includes the whole frame and furniture of the universe. As Christians, their duty is to keep heaven in their eyes and the earth under their feet. The earth was made empty and formless. God decided the earth was so shapeless that he needed to create light and darkness to separate day from night. God saw that the light was good and would call the light “day”, and the darkness would represent “night”. Light was seen as the great beauty and blessing of the universe. The light was made purely by the word of God’s power. God saw the light as good, exactly how he designed it. Light was fit to answer the end for which he designed it. He had simply said, let there be light and it was done, there was light. This is how the separation of day and night was created by God, never allowing them to be joined together.
God continued to form the earth and said “Let there be a vault between the waters to separate water from water” (Holy Bible, Gen. 1, 6). God called this vault the “sky”. Now God had created day, night, and the sky. God was continuing to create the earth we live on today. As Genesis 1 continued God created a “dry ground” to appear, called land. The waters were called “seas” and he saw this as good. Creating land and the seas lead to the creation of vegetation. God had said “Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds” (Holy Bible, Gen. 1, 11). This was the start of God descending to this lower world. This lower world designed for children of men and their maintenance. God started to create habitation for human beings on earth. Day three describes how the earth was furnished for the support of man.
On the fourth day God created the sun, moon, and stars. “God made two great lights—the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the...
