1 In the beginning God created the Heauen, and the Earth.

2 And the earth was without forme, and voyd, and darkenesse was vpon the face of the deepe: and the Spirit of God mooued vpon 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 diuided the light from the darkenesse.

5 And God called the light, Day, and the darknesse he called Night: and the euening 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 diuide the waters from the waters.

7 And God made the firmament; and diuided the waters, which were vnder the firmament, from the waters, which were aboue the firmament: and it was so.

8 And God called the firmament, Heauen: and the euening and the morning were the second day.

9 And God said, Let the waters vnder the heauen be gathered together vnto one place, and let the dry land appeare: and it was so.

10 And God called the drie land, Earth, and the gathering together of the waters called hee, Seas: and God saw that it was good.

11 And God said, Let the Earth bring foorth grasse, the herbe yeelding seed, and the fruit tree, yeelding fruit after his kinde, whose seed is in it selfe, vpon the earth: and it was so.

12 And the earth brought foorth grasse, and herbe yeelding seed after his kinde, and the tree yeelding fruit, whose seed was in it selfe, after his kinde: and God saw that it was good.

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

14 And God said, Let there bee lights in the firmament of the heauen, to diuide the day from the night: and let them be for signes and for seasons, and for dayes and yeeres.

15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heauen, to giue light vpon 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 starres also.

17 And God set them in the firmament of the heauen, to giue light vpon the earth:

18 And to rule ouer the day, and ouer the night, and to diuide the light from the darkenesse: and God saw that it was good.

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

20 And God said, Let the waters bring foorth aboundantly the mouing creature that hath life, and foule that may flie aboue the earth in the open firmament of heauen.

21 And God created great whales, and euery liuing creature that moueth, which the waters brought forth aboundantly after their kinde, and euery winged foule after his kinde: and God saw that it was good.

22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitfull, and multiply, and fill the waters in the Seas, and let foule multiply in the earth.

23 And the euening and the morning were the fift day.

24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the liuing creature after his kinde, cattell, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kinde: and it was so.

25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kinde, and cattell after their kinde, and euery thing that creepeth vpon the earth, after his kinde: and God saw that it was good.

26 And God said, Let vs make man in our Image, after our likenesse: and let them haue dominion ouer the fish of the sea, and ouer the foule of the aire, and ouer the cattell, and ouer all the earth, and ouer euery creeping thing that creepeth vpon the earth.

27 So God created man in his owne Image, in the Image of God created hee him; male and female created hee them.

28 And God blessed them, and God said vnto them, Be fruitfull, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it, and haue dominion ouer the fish of the sea, and ouer the foule of the aire, and ouer euery liuing thing that mooueth vpon the earth.

29 And God said, Behold, I haue giuen you euery herbe bearing seede, which is vpon the face of all the earth, and euery tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yeelding seed, to you it shall be for meat:

30 And to euery beast of the earth, and to euery foule of the aire, and to euery thing that creepeth vpon the earth, wherein there is life, I haue giuen euery greene herbe for meat: and it was so.

31 And God saw euery thing that hee had made: and behold, it was very good. And the euening and the morning were the sixth day.

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.

RNM 1-4-15 GEN's Genesis Chapter 1 comment on 4/15/2015, 9:33pm...

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!!

GENESIS IS THE BEST STORY IN THE BIBLE. I LIKE IT BECAUSE IT TELLS HOW THIS WORLD WAS MADE AND HOW MOST OF US GOT HERE. IT TOOK A GOD SIX 6 DAYS TO CREATE A WHOLE WORLD HE IS REALLY A GOD!!!!!!

 


RNM 1-4-11=GEN's Genesis Chapter 1 comment on 4/11/2015, 7:05pm...

GEN 1-4-11...child of god, are you sure your not sleeping! Before God brought the physical world into existence HE was ruling over the His realm in the Spiritual world I would assume. But it was a bit derogatory to say "was God sleeping? ". wouldn 't you say. AMEN!!
