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 Jeff Thomas Remembering that Jesus Christ is God manifested in the flesh when you read his declaration in Revelation 1 8 "I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending ". This means that he is it. He created everything. Does the pot as the potter who created you? I believe that my existence along with the other creations came by way of God. I do not care where God came from or how he got started the thought that this Divine Being has the power to create life, destroy life, revived life, and dispel any other beliefs when he gets ready automatically lets me know that we serve a mighty God who created everything. Faith is the key to believing that he exist.

The question that all people have is, if God has always been, then how was he created? I am on a new journey to becoming a christian and have always believed in God but, this question of how he became to be is one that is a great mystery to all.

Hello Everyone Adam was the first man that God made, 1 Corinthians 15 45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul the last Adam was made a quickening spirit . The last Adam is Jesus Christ. The name Adam means As a masculine noun, 'adam means "man ", "mankind " usually in a collective context as in humankind. The noun 'adam is also the masculine form of the word adamah which means "ground " or "earth ". It is related to the words adom red , admoni ruddy , and dam blood . Jesus Christ as a man or human he nursed the milk from Mary s breast as God he made the milk that he nursed. Jesus Christ is God manifested in the flesh.

Hello Thelma Please read my response that I gave to Anonymous on this very subject. It is under this Chapter page 5 dated 10 10 14 time 1 18. It is in three parts. There were no people outside of the Garden of Eden. The first man created was Adam. The first woman created was Eve. She had multiple children. It is not impossible to imagine a woman having more than 50 children. The greatest officially recorded number of children born to one mother is 69, to the wife of Feodor Vassilyev b. 1707 c.1782 , a peasant from Shuya, Russia. In 27 confinements she gave birth to 16 pairs of twins, seven sets of triplets and four sets of quadruplets.

REV. HAMILTON PAGAN, M.A.'s Genesis Chapter 1 comment about verse 5 on 12/08/2014, 10:15am...

Spiritually, there is a messge for us in the creation of day and night.the day shows man there is a new beginning, an new day, a new start, a new arising. the beginning of a new day points toward the beginning of a new life. we are start life all over again we can be born again and be spiritually renewed. we can become a new creature, an new man in Christ. God named the light day, and the darkness He named night. note two facts,1. god , not man named the light and darkness. this very significant. it shows the God is the Lord of both day and night, not man. Light and darkness are both part of God 's creation. both are good both have their purpose and function in God 's creation.

 


R Daisley's Genesis Chapter 1 comment about verse 2 on 12/07/2014, 10:24am...

Firstly, in verse 1, God created the heavens and the earth, no questions about that,now in verse 2 we are told that the earth was without form and void. We have to determine what void means and also what without form means. someone else in their comments above referred to the words Tohu and Bohu. Tohu refers to a break down,a mess, in shambles or confused. This is what "without form " implies so in actuality an influence or some sort has taken place. so some action has changed the original intent of what was in verse 1, "Order " It was once orderly but now has become confused. So a sentencing has been passed, the state of things has ben judged. So apparently satans fall may have taken place at this juncture, the earth was also void. Naturally meaning emptiness, waste. In referring to satan, Ezekiel says in chapter 28 15 Thou was perfect in thy ways until iniquity was found in thee. So Ezekiel here was privileged to some information or given a view of what was to be. In verse one he says the word of the Lord came unto me. When we look at Isaiah 34, Isaiah 45 we clearly get the understanding of the break down
