(this is a scan from the exact, authentic, original 1611 'HE' King James Bible)

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.

Hello Word I would like to ask, Where is the scripture that backs up your claim that there was another Earth age where all of us lived with God before Adam was created? The Bible I am reading tells me that there is one Earth. The new Earth will not come until God destroys this one. God created the first man Adam out of the dusk and breath the breathe of life and he became a living soul.

Gayle Adcock just a thought since I mentioned Jeremiah when your reading scripture don 't let the little things just pass by. 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.

Gayle Adcock In Genesis 1 vs 2 the word WAS is hayah 1961 Hebrew BECAME without form and void. 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

I am currently reading a book called The Genesis Enigma by Andrew Parker. I would strongly recommend it to all. The book educates the reader regarding how the creation and evolution are combined. Even independent of this book the mars explorer sent by NASA found the content of the water discovered on that planet NOT THE SAME as that in our oceans.I should point out that where the oceans came from is an ongoing puzzle for scientists.

Hello Lee If you would do me a favor, so that I do not have to repeat myself, would you read on page one under this chapter what I wrote to Russell2029. It is dated 10 14 14 at 10 12 pm. He asked the same question. I cannot make it no plainer than what I have already written.

 


Evangelist Chatauna Robinson's Genesis Chapter 1 comment on 10/26/2014, 6:48am...

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.

 


Evangelsit Chatauna Robinson's Genesis Chapter 1 comment on 10/26/2014, 6:32am...

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.
