Peter, We need to ask ourselves what does it mean to be created in Gods image? It says that male and female were created in Gods image. If God is speaking Literally then is God male or female? What is Gods image? has anyone ever seen Gods and lived? Ex 33:20; John 4:24; Zech 12:1. The tree of Knowledge of Good and evil Would God really exile his people because they ate from a tree? Email me.

Hi, and i hope that all is well. Genesis tells it as it is and or was but do we want it? That is the question. Is it coming? We are created in his image but have falling a long way. I wonder about the fall of man and that tree of forbidden fruit.

I have read the commentaries in Gen.2. I totally disagree. However, Gen 1 is God himself. After 2:3 while he rested, that is when other generations took place. In Gen 1:26 God created Male

S. F. Zielski: In your remarks you mentioned Genesis I: 26-28 and chapter 2: 26-28 What book are you talking about my KJV Genesis 2 does not have a verse above 25.

As we read and wonder about the divine power of God, and how He understood all things, as He made all things we realize that we are so unfathomably dull and ignorant, and have no idea the magnitude of what we are reading! The LORD God created the light and the darkness, the day and the night He created the waters above the firmament which we don't understand , and separated them from the waters below the expanses, to create the oceans then He commanded the dry land to appear, and called the dry, earth. Then this earth, and the seas which He had created and made, were apparently of something far far beyond our capacity to understand, for He commanded them to bring forth the living creature, and all the grass and plants and trees from out of them. The earth and the seas brought forth the living creature, by the command of God living creatures didn't adapt to their environments, they were created from out of their environments, and for their respective environments! Then at the last day of His work creating the worlds, He said, Let us make man in our image and after our likeness and let him have dominion over all the earth, and over all that lives on the earth, and in the seas: something decidedly different from, and far above all of the animals. He took of the dust of the earth, and spoke in command of faith, and created the man from out of the dust and then He breathed into his nostrils the spirit of life, and man became a living soul. All these things are too wonderful for us they are high we cannot attain to them. What is man, that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man, that thou visitest him? So valuable, that God forgives us, and comes Himself in the flesh, to give His life for taking away our sins, and restoring what He took not away. I think, that man never got the chance to learn what it meant to be God's children, or to have dominion over the works of His hands because the devil so quickly came in with his slanders and lies and perversion, and caused the alienation of man away from God without a cause, through the sin. Putting side by side, first the nature and character of our Creator, and then what He said is who and what we are, AS HE INTENDED US, His sons and daughters when the Lord Jesus began teaching His disciples, in Matthew 5-7, He was expounding to them more perfectly the same Glad Tidings that He was preaching to all the rest of the people throughout the whole of the Galilee. He was teaching those who were called to eventually be His eye-witnesses, Apostles and Ambassadors what it actually meant in the real and practical, to live out these Glad Tidings come down from heaven. We are announced Glad Tidings of the Son of God having come in the flesh, to redeem us from all iniquity to reconcile us to God. We do not "accept" Jesus we are mercifully accepted by God for Jesus' sake it may seem trivial, but there is power in the words, that reaches to the soul and the spirit and we must order our words and our faith perfectly according to the words of God, and not the words of men. From the very beginning, they were called the sons of God, to whom the word of God came, and who were charged with keeping and guarding that word for all the succeeding generations, till He comes. Just like when Jesus taught the Jews that just because they were Abraham's seed, didn't make them children but by being the kind of men that Abraham was, in faith and character and works and meekness, that constituted them children. If someone thinks like the devil, believes like the devil, and talks like the devil it will happen that he will start looking like the devil, and acting like the devil, more and more so he is then, not a child of Abraham, and not a child of God but a child of the devil. It doesn't matter what race or family or nation anyone is from if they receive not the love of the truth that they might be saved, and they harden themselves in that wicked spirit then they will believe what is false, deliberately "Instead of Christ," and must be damned. God, who knows the hearts and innermost parts of every man judges every man to his condition in this world and the next whether to giving righteousness and sanctification and purifying and glory, to those that love the Lord Jesus Christ's coming or to ministering the curse and shame and abandonment to all evil, of filth and perversion and darkness, unto utter their destruction from the presence of the Lord. Jesus is our perfect model and example. His prophets and apostles went before us, and we should take courage and comfort from their exploits in God. These present circumstances are only temporary soon, very very soon, our faith will be turned to sight and we will know, even as we ourselves are known.

Genesis is an awesome book, it set the stage for the remaining chpt. Did you notice in the 1st chpt GOD never said he made water. spirit move on the face of the deep. Which to me that mean water so earth came out of The water so when he created earth he must have created it in the waters and what about the water above the firmament where is it at ( u got its the sky that covers the whole universe)

David, When the LORD spoke to Moses out of the burning bush, He said His name is "I AM THAT I AM, tell the children of Israel, I AM has sent me to you." He has no beginning or end; He is the beginning and the end; before Him there was no God, for He is before all things. God is eternal, and dwells in eternity. We are bound in time for now, till we pass from this present existence, into eternity.

Genesis is the seeds chapter and God has asulbutes in his mind that he wanted to be a father and he a saviour and healer and redeemer he has all this in his mind that why called him God

The First heaven and earth was perfect. This was the age and time of pangia, dinosaurs and yes, prehistoric man walked the earth. However no one can ever claim to know what kind of soul or breath life existed within them. This is a known fact. Verse 2. Something catastrophic had happened. War in the Heavenlys and Lucifur is kicked out ruining the universe and earth. Second heaven and earth is us.

 


Jane's comment on 6/27/2016, 4:33pm...

Robert, Christ loves you. That is why he came, he came for our fallen nature which needed to be redeemed to right standing with God. God loves you, and that is why he sent his son, Jesus Christ. God's grace is given to each of us.. talk to him in prayer, he is listening.. John 3:16. Asking Jesus to save you is number one importance! Go to a bible teaching church, and read and pray your bible

 


Brother William's comment on 6/25/2016, 11:22am...

Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? He who has clean hands and a pure heart. Blessed is the man that walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor sits in the seat of the scornful. For his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in the law of the Lord he does meditate day and night. The ungodly are not so, but are as the chaff which the wind drives away.

 


Brother William's comment on 6/24/2016, 11:54am...

Read Matthew 24, then 2 Peter 2, 2Timothy 3, Jude, Psalm 1, Isaiah 1, Jeremiah 5, for a start.

 


Hector's comment on 6/24/2016, 12:28am...

To Word, In Job 38:4 God is speaking to Job, "WHERE WERE YOU when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell me, if you know so much." If Job wasn't there when God created the earth, then you and I and all the souls your talking about were not present either! God is speaking to the Angels.

 


Bill's comment on 6/23/2016, 2:58pm...

Robert, I suggest that you begin my asking God to guide you and thanking him for doing it. You can start by simply reading scripture, but I would recommend listening to good messages from faithful sources too. God bless

 


Robert's comment on 6/23/2016, 4:36am...

I am new to real bible study. I was raised a Catholic but dropped out in high school. Under Catholicism in my embryonic years having Mortal sins was a road to Hell if u did not confess. So although I still pray I am not a church goer and feel that I am doomed because divorce ended my marriage. Seeing worldly events develope I am scared to death for all, esp. my family. How do I even start!!!

To Susan on the trinity - Deut. 4:35; Isa. 42:8; 43:11; 44:6l v. 8; 45: 5-6, v. 15, 18-22; 46:9; 48: 11-12; Jn. 17:3; Deut. 6:4; Col. 1:19; 2:9. In reading all these in the O.T. remember the Israelites were MONOTHEISTIC. Jesus was a Jew; His message was to His people. Had He been a 2nd person in the trinity - then God made His people believe a lie in the O.T.

Comment*GOD crated all things in six days on the seventh day he is rest I will not forgot for ever.

 


Word's comment on 6/21/2016, 11:52pm...

Hector Job 38 vs 7 it says all the sons of God and His stars and stars means children and if you check it out in an old Strong's it means the whole family or every soul created. You wrote angels which means messengers and I think we all were before we got here but it's very traditional the way you said it.

 


Jackie Beal's comment on 6/21/2016, 6:00am...

I love the book of Genesis it tell a lot how the world begun and to here how our God of the world created everything and it help me understand the Bible

 


Amani's comment on 6/18/2016, 10:42am...

THE TRUTH COMES OUT THANK U. VERY MUCH ALL PRAISE TO THE HEAVENLY FATHER

 


Annie Paylor's comment on 6/15/2016, 5:16am...

I love the book of Genesis it's the book of the beginning of man relationship with God and his plan for his creation, It is a book that each time you read the chapter it really open your spirit up to a deeper knowledge then what you may just see on the pages. It definitely keep you returning back for deeperwho was God referring to when he said 'let us make man in our image",It is a book of study.

 


Hector's comment on 6/10/2016, 4:12pm...

Thank you ladies for your comments. I believe that Jesus created man in the likeness of himself, I get all that, and yes marriage is between one man and one woman. I'm married going on 31 yrs, 4 children, 4 grand children and 1 on the way! So yes I believe in the two shall become one flesh. The same way Jesus knows his bride and the bride knows him.
