"The created heavens and earth in Genesis 1:1 became without form and void as mentioned in vs 2. Subsequent to that God re-established the heavens and earth that were originally created. We now live in the "2nd Heavens and Earth". The 3rd and final (where paradise is re-established) is yet to come."
"To Chuck: According to the bible Jesus, God, and the Holy Spirit are one. This three in one is called the trinity. In Genesis 1:1, it says God created the heaven and the earth. Jesus does not have to be mentioned because they are not talking of the earthly form of God or Jesus that came through the process of incarnation through the holy virgin birth of Mary (a sinner), then went to the cross, died for sins of all men, rose again on the third day, and shortly after over 500 people witnessed Jesus risen, he ascended into heaven. Hopefully that answers your question!"
"Hey i just noticed something that’s odd. Any1 that can help that would be cool. The thing i don’t get is Genesis 1:14, how could there be days and evenings before this verse? Also another thing Genesis 1:16. “God made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day” this means sun right and “the lesser light to rule the night” this must mean the moon, yeah? I can understand that, but the first thing it mentioned. God created two lights. The moon has no light it just a reflection from the sun? The sun is the only thing that has its own light source, yeah?"
"As for the light thing some guy mentioned genesis 1:1 God created the heavens and the earth - what it DOES NOT SAY heavens and then the earth. Some Assume the the action of creating the earth and heavens were seperate this scripture shows they were not.That goes for everything already in the heavens too (stars planets moons) Verse 3 shows that thier was light before vegetation and obviously the sun how else could light be there? Take this to note Moses was writing this from the view on the surface of the earth of course inspired by Jehovah God ( 2 timothy 3:16) (Psalm 83:18) Was Life Created Brochure (WTBTS)?- Genesis acount A careful consideration of the Genesis account reveals that events starting during one “day” continued into one or more of the following “days.” For example, before the first creative “day” started, light from the already existing sun was somehow prevented from reaching the earth’s surface, possibly by thick clouds. (Job 38:9) During the first “day,” this barrier began to clear, allowing diffused light to penetrate the atmosphere. On the second “day,” the atmosphere evidently continued to clear, creating a space between the thick clouds above and the ocean below. On the fourth “day,” the atmosphere gradually cleared to such an extent that the sun and the moon were made to appear “in the expanse of the heavens.” (Genesis 1:14-16) In other words, from the perspective of a person on earth, the sun and moon began to be discernible. These events happened gradually. The Genesis account also relates that as the atmosphere continued to clear, flying creatures—including insects and membrane-winged creatures—started to appear on the fifth “day.” The Bible’s narrative allows for the possibility that some major events during each day, or creative period, occurred gradually rather than instantly, perhaps some of them even lasting into the following creative days."
"I found the answer in Wikipedia: Two stories or one? Until the latter half of the 19th century Genesis 1 and 2 were seen as one continuous, uniform story with Genesis 1:1–2:6 outlining the world\'s origin, and 2:7–2:25 carefully painting a more detailed picture of the creation of humanity. Modern scholarship, citing (1) the use of two different names for God, (2) two different emphases (physical vs. moral issues), and (3) a different order of creation (plants before humans vs. plants after humans), believes that these are two distinct scriptures written many years apart by two different sources, chapter 1 by the Priestly source and chapter 2 by the Jahwist, with the bridge the work of a \"redactor\", or editor"
"Even though the spelling of some words are different they are the same words. There has not been a change to these words. I have no problem with these words. Genesis 1:1-5 tells us plainly that this was the first day of Creation and there was no \"gap\" between verses 1 and 2 of billion of years. All 31 verses of Genesis Chapter 1 are connected by \"and\". \"And\" is a conjunction use to connect sentences together. Genesis 1:1-31 is plainly telling us about the 6 24-hour days of Creation. I trully love God\'s Word."
"According to Science Moon doesn\'t have it\'s own light, and Moon light borrowed from the Sun.. What this Genesis 1:16 says and What Science says kindly get me the details.. in His service Sunil"
"Genesis 1:1 says In the beginning God created the heaven & earth. meaning God is already there from the beginning of creation, he is existing already because God has no beginning and ending, and God cannot cover by the time, and that is why John 4:24 says God is Spirit!And that is why in (John 1:1) In the beginning was the WORD and the WORD was with GOD, and the WORD was GOD! and if we jump to verse 14 and the WORD became FLESH in the person of Jesus Christ, the word is none other than God and these word became flesh (1 Tim 3:16) God was manifest in the flesh. So God has NO BEGINNING AND ENDING (Book of Revelation.) For you now Venus, i will return to you the question you asking, FOR YOU where did God came from?"

"In John 1 we see that Jesus made everything that exists and then in Genesis 1:1 we see that God made everything that exists. It is crystal clear throughout the Bible that Jesus is God."
"Good evening all--just wanted to say several things that i think is beautiful--1st..Genesis 1:1 in the (beginning)God created the heavens and earth(period) 2..then John says in the (beginning) was the word 3..what did we know before the beginning--nothing--how could you know that great spirit--but he began to condesend toward us--we would know him as the word of God--Oh I love it--John began to speak and now this is in my words--he said--that which was back there in the beginning--the one who created--I handled him with my own hands--I ate with him--i touched him--I walked with him as Adam did in the garden--i spoke to him face to face--i even hugged him--greeted him with a holy kiss--think of it everyone--we beheld him as the only begotten of the father--how else could we have handled him--he desired to dwell with his people--even as he showed in type by the ark of the covenant and Israel--just types and shadows of things to come--God had a plan--he wanted to dwell with Israel and said Moses come up here I want to show you something--he said here moses build this ark after the (pattern) of the heavenlies just the way I showed you and dont deviate one bit--I want to dwell with my people--God wanted to live with us--come down to us--condesend down thru his creation to his creation--just think--The God that created all things came in his own creation--became a part of it to redeem us back to God--how beautiful--He came down in all his greatness to Israel on the Mount and they said--no no dont let God speak to us lest we die--but let Moses speak to us--then After that God said and a Prophet like unto Moses would he raise up to speak to Israel--Now here he stood before them over 1000 years later and they said who are you--we have Moses--I can show you my lineage goes back to those fathers--he said if you believed Moses you would believe me--they said Abraham is our father--he said before Abraham \"I AM\" ut oh boy that did it--that meant he was the one who spoke to moses in the burning bush--a fire caught in a bush that was not consumed--but here was a man in the flesh saying--I was the one who spoke to your prophet moses--I was the one who made the Promise to Abraham--here before Israel stood the one who dwelt on the Mercy Seat--here he stood before them On the Mercy Seat Now--John said we beheld him full of GRACE--MERCY--In his eartly tabernacle doing the high priestly work--AND THEY REJECTED HIM AND HIS ATONEMENT AND PAID THE PRICE DIDNT THEY--Just think he gave mercy to who asked mercy--JOHN SAID I HANDLED THAT PERSON--IN HIM WAS \"LIFE\" AND THE LIFE WAS THE LIGHT OF MEN-yes he was the very LIFE of God--Now one day he said I COME FROM GOD AND I GO BACK TO GOD--PAUL SAID HE MADE A LITTLE LOWER THAN THE AGNELS--PREACHED ON--WORSHIPPED--ANGELS WERE IN AWE--GOD CONDESENDED AND BECAME FLESH TO DWELL AMONG HIS PEOPLE--WOW HOW TREMENDOUS--Paul saw him on the road to Damascus--knocked of his horse--he said \"Lord\" who are though--He said I AM JESUS--that settles it for me--Paul saw him like Moses had seen him--like the way he had traveled with Israel on their journey--A pillar of fire--so bright it blinded him--Now look in the book of revelation--1st three chapters--HE SAID I AM THE ALMIGHTY--HE HAD TOLD THE DISCIPLES ALL POWERE IN \"HEAVEN\" AND IN EARTH IS GIVEN UNTO \"ME\"--WELL WHERE IS ANY OTHER GOD BESIDES HIM--IF THERE IS HE IS POWERLESS--NOW LOOK AT HIM IN THE FIRST THREE CHAPTERS OF REVELATIONS--DRESSED IN THE H IGH PRIEST CLOTHING--DOING WHAT---THE HIGH PRIEST WORK--WHAT PORTION OF THE TABERNALE IS HE IN--THE HOLY PLACE WHERE THE 7 GOLDEN CANDLESTICKS STOOD--WHATS HE DOING--KEEPING THE CHURCH CLEAN THROUGH THE CHURCH AGES--SENDING MESSENGERS TO HIS CHURCH TO KEEP THE FIRE LIT--AND WHERE WAS THE CANDLESTICK--BEFORE THE THRONE OF GOD--AND THE THRONE WAS THE MOST HOLY PLACE WHERE HE DWELT ON THE MERCY SEAT--WHERE HE ENTERED IN BY HIS OWN BLOOD--HE WAS DOING THE WORK FOR ISRAEL IN THE TEMPLE OR THE ARK OF THE COVENANT--THAT WAS EARTHLY--NOW HE IS DOING THE WORK--KEEPING THE CHURCH CLEAN BY THE HOLY GHOST--UNTIL THE LAST ONE THAT MAKES UP THE BRIDE COMES IN--HE STAYS ON THE MERCY SEAT UNTIL THAT LAST ONE COMES IN--Jesus said John--write what you see in a book and send it to the 7 churches in Asia--just as you see it john--not one move is made in the whole book of revelation but what means something--not one move--add nothing to it or take anything away from it--just like he had told Moses one day--moses build it after the pattern i showed you-just exactly like the pattern--just think--one day all the types and shadows will pass away--and revelations 22 says and I John saw a new Jerusalem coming down from God out of heaven as a bride adorned for her husband to sit on a newly renovated earth--what was in Genesis 1 and then in the middle of the book in the gospels had now ran its full course--and God had fullfilled his desire--What--to dwell among his people and be their God--Behold I make all things new---If you read this i hope you get blessed as much as i have been blessed from it--Just think John said i handled him--now we have shared with you what we heard from him from the \"beginning\" that you may now be able to fellowship with us as we do with the father and the Lord Jesus Christ--Wow"
"We see Elohim is present. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was God. Jesus is the Word, the same in Genesis 1:1 at the creation of the world. God in three person the God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Just as water has three forms: Ice, Vapor, and Liquid still water. The just shall live by faith, and we cannot comprehend the trinity in our finite minds, but faith comes by hearing the Word of God. One day our faith will be turned into sight when we see Jesus. Thank God he is the way, the truth, and the life, no man comes unto the Father except by him. Therefore receive the Son, for God has said my Spirit will not always strive with man. Now is the day of salvation receive him today, and you will live forever with him through out eternity."
"This is the 1st Earth Age, Genesis 1:1-2 1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. Our Father didnt create nothin \"Void\" this word was means became that way. To understand our Fathers 7 thousand year plan, one must understand the 3- Earth Age\'s"
"Not sure where most of you are at with Particle Physics, but this is one of my passions. That is to see how God created all things at the small (quantum level). Ok, let’s go… 1st ….remember one thing: E=MC^2 (Einstein’s famous equation). This simply means: Energy (can’t see or touch – but like the wind, you can feel) is equal to Mass x the Speed-of-light (photon) squared – in a vacuum (void of Matter – which induces resistance) . And Vice Versa. So if you take any object with Mass, that is ANY object in the Universe (Uni: single Verse: sentence), accelerate it to the Speed-of-Light (186,242.0 Mile per 2nd (( wraps around earth 7.5x in one 2nd)) , it becomes pure energy. This is the reverse of what we see today. That is, we can’t see pure energy. Furthermore, potentially, somewhere in the conversion of energy to mass, energy ‘might’ use the vehicle called the ‘Higgs Boson’ ( can’t see or touch) to convert pure energy into mass – as the scientific community is hoping, that is… their hoping so they have the starting point (Higgs Boson) in their ‘Standard-Model’ of Particle Physics. Sadly, most quantum scientist believed energy popped into existence for no reason; we know otherwise! So….take a deep breath…. Genesis 1:1 The supernatural eternal God who we can’t completely see describes thru a Narrative (Genesis), how He created the time based natural we can see. Also, Genesis 1:1 is God’s Index or ‘Categories’ for natural science. Sadly the scientific community didn’t understand what Moses wrote 3500 years earlier until atheist Herbert Spencer, famous for coining the phrase: “Survival of the Fittest,” wrote the book “The Knowable.” Sadly, Spencer left tout the main Variable: God. Or as Aristotle said, “The Primum Movens (Latin for: Prime Mover or Unmoved Mover). *** side note: in Aramaic Genesis 1:1 is written in 7 Words - completion. In the Beginning (time) … God (source & force or cause & effect) … Created (action) … the Heaven (space) … and the Earth (matter)"
"@Ramon, The earth was without form, and void; is the consequence of Satan’s fall and all disturbance it brought on earth which became shapeless. GOD did not create the earth shapeless in Genesis 1:1. Because so many years are believed to separate Genesis 1:1 and Genesis 1:2. It is in that space of time that we place the existence dinosaurs and the life of all fossils that existed some million of years ago. So the heaven and earth of Genesis 1:1 made a world with life, but different from ours. And after the fall of Satan, that life was completely destroyed, and the earth lost its shape, ... it’s only in Genesis 1:3 that GOD started bringing it back to order. Otherwise, the earth was not shapeless at the beginning, it became shapeless with the fall of Satan. GOD bless you."
"@Peter, Yes, there are evidences of fossils dated millions of years, and those might not be the oldest ones, because time is endless. And the Bible happily does not ignore such evidences, neither does it deny them. Yes such evidences are true, and the Bible acknowledges them. Genesis 1:1, In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. Genesis 1:2, And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. God created the heavens and earth in Genesis 1:1, and in Genesis 1:2, the earth was without form. God could not create it without form, but it became without form (upside down). So what caused that? It is the fall of Satan along with his army that brought all such disturbance and quenched all life on earth. And in Genesis 1:3, God starts bringing things back to order. So those fossils discovered every now and then belong to the period between Genesis 1:1 and Genesis 1:2. So God is not in contradiction with such discoveries. In fact they confirm the turmoil consecutive to Satan’s fall. God bless you."
"I think, in between Genesis 1:1 and 1:2 there must be some years gap. I would like to know about the gap and the things happened at that time. May Jesus improve our website further in future. Thanks."
"As a young child, I’ve always had questions about the Bible, the world, and GOD. Who am I or was I, did I exist before, what's my purpose? Samuel Abhishek, I think that you are correct about Genesis 1:1-2, there was another Earth Age before this one it was the 1st Earth Age. The one we are at the present living in is the 2nd Earth Age, and when Yahshaua returns it will be the 3rd Earth Age....Heaven right here on Earth! Most Churches will not share this part of the word...WHY?"
"Fist time in looking to read online. Too many misspelled words from beginning of Genesis 1:1-2. I will have to look else where for a book that is not so confusing to read. I need to be able to read THE WORD and not have to figure out each misspelled word. I was not planning on taking a spelling test."
"Ephesians 5:25-33, 32 Not so much a great mystery, if they read the whole Bible or find this part... Also Science is not the problem, it’s the scientists because it is written in Proverbs 1:4 "Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all your getting get understanding." To me, scientists are just trying to attack the Bible for an excuse for sinning, to not follow God, for what someone else did; Breaking Exodus 20:7 or grieving over death. Scientist should also do a little more "RE SEARCH" because I don’t like them making things, your just looking at what's is ALREADY there. You almost/sometimes describe what God does...but you can't do what God does Ecclesiastes 11:5, John 8:28 and 5:19...you will never know unless God tells you or gives you the power to do so. The so called "NEW PLANETS" and "GALAXIES" “we haven't discovered"... Genesis 1:16 "Evolution Theory"...Genesis 1:24-25...Monkeys breed Monkeys Putting aside or saying who lit the match? God, Yahweh, Genesis 11:9, for scientist's "Big Bang Theory"...Genesis 1:1-18, 1."
"The light spoken of in Genesis 1:3 has been the subject of commentaries, which describe it as spiritual light. God is often spoken of as the highest light, as in Isaiah 60:19. Physical light, the sun, stars, and moon, were created later, as described in Genesis 1:16."
"In Genesis 1:1, there is God, Genesis 1:2, there is the Holy Spirit, Genesis 1:3, there is Jesus (the Light). That is the Trinity and no coincidence that it shows up in the first three verses of the Bible!"
"Why did God create man? What was His purpose in creating man? God has given us the answer to these questions in Genesis 1:26 and 27. These two verses are of great significance. They reveal to us that God\'s creation of man was indeed an exceedingly special one. Before God created man, He said, \"Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.\" This was God\'s plan in creating man. \"God said, Let us...\" This speaks of the kind of man God wanted. In other words, God was designing a \"model\" for the man He was to create. Verse 27 reveals God\'s creation of man: \"So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.\" Verse 28 says, \"God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.\" From these verses we see the man that God desired. God desired a ruling man, a man who would rule upon this earth; then He would be satisfied. How did God create man? He created man in His own image. God wanted a man like Himself. It is very evident then that man\'s position in God\'s creation is entirely unique, for among all of God\'s creatures man alone was created in God\'s image. The man that God\'s heart was set upon was completely different from all other created beings; he was a man in His own image. We notice here something quite remarkable. Verse 26 says, \"Let us make man in our image, after our likeness...\"; but verse 27 says, \"So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.\" In verse 26 the pronoun \"our\" is plural, but in verse 27 \"his\" is singular. During the conference of the Godhead, verse 26 says, \"Let us make man in our image\"; therefore, according to grammar, verse 27 should say, \"So God created man in their own image.\" But strangely, verse 27 says, \"So God created man in his own image.\" How can we explain this? It is because there are three in the Godhead—the Father, the Son, and the Spirit, yet only one has the image in the Godhead—the Son. When the Godhead was designing man\'s creation, the Bible indicates that man would be made in \"our\" image (since They are one, \"our image\" was mentioned); but when the Godhead was in the actual process of making man, the Bible says that man was made in \"his\" image. \"His\" denotes the Son. From this we ascertain that Adam was made in the image of the Lord Jesus. Adam did not precede the Lord Jesus; the Lord Jesus preceded him. When God created Adam, He created him in the image of the Lord Jesus. It is for this reason it says \"in his image\" rather than \"in their image.\" God\'s purpose is to gain a group of people who are like His Son. When we read Romans 8:29 we find God\'s purpose: \"Because those whom He foreknew, He also predestinated to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the Firstborn among many brothers.\" God desires to have many sons, and God desires all these sons to be like that one Son of His. Then His Son will no more be the only Begotten, but the Firstborn among many brethren. God\'s desire is to gain such a group of people. If we see this, we will realize the preciousness of man, and we will rejoice whenever man is mentioned. How God values man! Even He Himself became a man! God\'s plan is to gain man. When man is gained by God, God\'s plan is accomplished. It is by man that God\'s plan is fulfilled, and through man His own need is met. What, then, does God require from the man whom He created? It is that man should rule. When God created man, He did not predestine man to fall. Man\'s fall is in chapter three of Genesis, not chapter one. In God\'s plan to create man, He did not predestine man to sin, neither did He foreordain redemption. We are not minimizing the importance of redemption, but only saying that redemption was not foreordained by God. If it were, then man would have to sin. God did not foreordain this. In God\'s plan to create man, man was ordained to rule. This is revealed to us in Genesis 1:26. Here God unveils to us His desire and tells us the secret of His plan. \"Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.\" This is God\'s purpose in creating man. Perhaps some may ask why God has such a purpose. It is because an angel of light rebelled against God before man\'s creation and became the devil: Satan sinned and fell; the Daystar became the enemy of God (Isa. 14:12-15). God, therefore, withdrew His authority from the enemy and put it, instead, into the hand of man. The reason God created man is that man may rule in the place of Satan. What abounding grace we see in God\'s creation of man! Not only does God desire that man should rule, but He marks out a specific area for man to rule. We see this in Genesis 1:26: \"Let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth...\" \"All the earth\" is the domain of man\'s rule. Not only did God give man dominion over the fish of the sea, the birds of the heavens, and the cattle, but He further required that man should rule over \"all the earth.\" The area where God desired man to rule is the earth. Man is especially related to the earth. Not only in His plan to create man was God\'s attention focused upon the earth, but after God made man, He clearly told him that he was to rule over the earth. Verses 27 and 28 say, \"So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it...\" What God emphasized here is that man should \"replenish the earth\" and \"subdue it\"; it is of secondary importance that man should have dominion over the fish of the sea, the fowl of the air, and every living thing on the earth. Man\'s dominion over these other things is an accessory; the main subject is the earth. Genesis 1:1-2 says, \"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. And the earth was waste and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep\" [ASV]. These two verses are made more clear by translating them directly from the Hebrew. According to the original language, verse one says, \"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.\" The heavens here are plural in number and refer to the heavens of all the stars. (The earth has its heaven, and so do all the stars.) The direct translation of verse two is: \"And the earth became [not \"was\"] waste and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep.\" In Hebrew, preceding \"the earth\" there is the conjunction \"and.\" \"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth\"; there were no difficulties, no problems, but then something happened: \"and the earth became waste and void.\" The word \"was\" in Genesis 1:2 (\"And the earth was waste and void\") and the word \"became\" in Genesis 19:26, where Lot\'s wife became a pillar of salt, are the same. Lot\'s wife was not born a pillar of salt; she became a pillar of salt. The earth was not waste and void at the creation, but later became waste and void. God created the heavens and the earth, but \"the earth became waste and void.\" This reveals that the problem is not with the heavens but with the earth. We see then that the earth is the center of all problems. God contends for the earth. The Lord Jesus taught us to pray, \"Your name be sanctified; Your kingdom come; Your will be done, as in heaven, so also on earth\" (Matt. 6:9-10). According to the meaning of the original language, the phrase \"as in heaven, so also on earth\" is common to all three clauses, not only to the last clause. In other words, the original meaning is: \"Your name be sanctified, as in heaven, so also on earth. Your kingdom come, as in heaven, so also on earth. Your will be done, as in heaven, so also on earth.\" This prayer reveals that there is no problem with \"heaven\"; the problem is with the \"earth.\" After the fall of man, God spoke to the serpent, \"Upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life\" (Gen. 3:14). This meant that the earth would be the serpent\'s sphere, the place upon which he would creep. The realm of Satan\'s work is not heaven, but earth. If the kingdom of God is to come, then Satan must be cast out. If God\'s will is to be done, it must be done on earth. If God\'s name is to be sanctified, it must be sanctified on earth. All the problems are on the earth. Two words in Genesis are very meaningful. One is \"subdue\" in Genesis 1:28, which can also be translated \"conquer.\" The other is \"keep\" in Genesis 2:15, which can also be translated \"guard.\" We see from these verses that God ordained man to conquer and guard the earth. God\'s original intention was to give the earth to man as a place to dwell. It was not His intention that the earth would become desolate (Isa. 45:18). God desired, through man, to not allow Satan to intrude upon the earth, but the problem was that Satan was on earth and intended to do a work of destruction upon it. Therefore, God wanted man to restore the earth from Satan\'s hand. Another matter we need to note is that God required man, strictly speaking, not only to take back the earth, but also the heaven which is related to the earth. In the Scripture there is a difference between \"heavens\" and \"heaven.\" The \"heavens\" are where the throne of God is found, where God can exercise His authority, while \"heaven\" in the Scriptures sometimes refers to the heaven which is related to the earth. It is this heaven which God also wants to recover (see Rev. 12:7-10). Some may ask: Why doesn\'t God Himself cast Satan into the bottomless pit or the lake of fire? Our answer is: God can do it, but He does not want to do it Himself. We do not know why He will not do it Himself, but we do know how He is going to do it. God wants to use man to deal with His enemy, and He created man for this purpose. God wants the creature to deal with the creature. He wants His creature man to deal with His fallen creature Satan in order to bring the earth back to God. The man whom He created is being used by Him for this purpose. Let us read Genesis 1:26 again: \"And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth...\" It seems that the sentence is finished here, but another phrase is added: \"...and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.\" Here we see that the creeping things occupy a very great position, for God spoke of it after He finished mentioning \"all the earth.\" The implication is that in order for man to have dominion over all the earth, the creeping things must not be overlooked, for God\'s enemy is embodied in the creeping things. The serpent in Genesis 3 and the scorpions in Luke 10 are creeping things. Not only is there the serpent, representing Satan, but also scorpions, representing the sinful and unclean evil spirits. The domain of both the serpent and the scorpion is this earth. The problem is on the earth. Therefore, we must distinguish the difference between the work of saving souls and the work of God. Many times the work of saving souls is not necessarily the work of God. Saving souls solves the problem of man, but the work of God requires that man exercise authority to have dominion over all things created by Him. God needs an authority in His creation, and He has chosen man to be that authority. If we were here just for ourselves as mere men, then all our seeking and longing would be to love the Lord more and to be more holy, more zealous, and save more souls. All of these pursuits are good indeed, but they are too man-centered. These things are concerned simply with the benefit of man; God\'s work and God\'s need are entirely neglected. We must see that God has His need. We are on this earth not merely for man\'s need but even more for God\'s need. Thank God that He has committed the ministry of reconciliation to us, but even if we have saved all the souls in the whole world, we have not yet accomplished God\'s work or satisfied God\'s requirement. Here is something called God\'s work, God\'s need. When God created man, He spoke of what He needed. He revealed His need to have man rule and reign over all His creation and proclaim His triumph. Ruling for God is not a small thing; it is a great matter. God needs men whom He can trust and who will not fail Him. This is God\'s work, and this is what God desires to obtain. We do not lightly esteem the work of gospel preaching, but if all our work is just preaching the gospel and saving souls, we are not causing Satan to suffer fatal loss. If man has not restored the earth from the hand of Satan, he has not yet achieved God\'s purpose in creating him. Saving souls is often only for the welfare of man, but dealing with Satan is for the benefit of God. Saving souls solves man\'s need, but dealing with Satan satisfies God\'s need. Brothers and sisters, this requires us to pay a price. We know how the demons can speak. A demon once said, \"Jesus I know of, and with Paul I am acquainted; but who are you?\" (Acts 19:15). When a demon meets us, will he flee or not? Preaching the gospel demands that we pay a price, but a much greater price must be paid to deal with Satan. This is not a matter of a message or a teaching. This requires our practice, and the price is extremely great. If we are to be men whom God will use to overthrow all of Satan\'s work and authority, we must obey the Lord completely and absolutely! In doing other work it matters less if we preserve ourselves a little, but when dealing with Satan, we cannot leave one bit of ground for ourselves. We may hold on to something of ourselves in our study of the Scriptures, in preaching the gospel, in helping the church or the brothers, but when we are dealing with Satan, self must be utterly abandoned. Satan will never be moved by us if self is preserved. May God open our eyes to see that His purpose demands that we be wholly and absolutely for Him. A double-minded person can never deal with Satan. May God speak this word to our hearts."
"@ Question and Answer...If you read Genesis 1 you will see that God first created the heaves and the earth. Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters."
"Genesis 1:1 God states a fact that is Isaiah 45:18 established, perfection implied, formed, creat not in vain, and formed it to be inhabited. Genesis 1:2 \"was\" # 1961 become, it became without form and void. Why? Revelation 12:4 the outline of the Bible, the dragon, satan stole a third of Gods children. God got mad! Jeremiah 4: 22-27 foolish children. God loves us and is trying to save us so he can find out who is good and loves him so we all came to earth in the flesh, Matthew 13:36-43 yes even the wicked ones the tares, the third that follow Satan. Read Jeremiah 1. God knew him in the first age of spirit. Knew Jacob and Esau too! Knew you and knew me. Image, Jesus, In the beginning was the word and the word was with God and the word was God and created all things. He the Word Jesus was talking to his children, Job 38:7 is the Sons and Stars of God and that is every soul. Proverbs 8:31 we were all rejoicing at the beautiful planet earth we call our home. Watch the kenites through the scriptures or the sons of Cain. At the time of Noah 2 of every flesh got on the boat and Cains 2 show up in 1 Chronicles 2:55 and all throughout the scriptures even until they put nails in Christ that was told to us in Gen. 3:15 that seed is zera, the successsive descendants of a person generations not yet born. The enemies of God are in Genesis 15:19,20,21 and yes the kenites are there. Don\'t follow the fake that is coming for 2 and a half months like the world will do. Store your food for 3 months and the fake comes first, instead of Jesus or anti-Christ. Ask Father for help with the scriptures and he will show you. G"
"We should interject Jeremiah 4: 23-26 in between Genesis 1:2 and 1:3! Then take a good long studied look at what it now states! And after doing that, take a good very long studied look into the new discoveries and fact being dug up of the last decade, concerning the destruction of earth by a comet that broke into many pieces(the instrument of God\'s judgment!)that happened back before and during the Younger-Dryas event of 12,900 years ago! That\'s what I think. There is a \'gap\' between Genesis 1:1 and 1:2 but it is not billions, millions or even 100\'s of thousands of years, but rather only a few thousand, and the recreation from the damage caused by the comet, took God only SIX literal days to restore! That\'s what I think. God bless!"
"Wait, Genesis 1:11-12 and 1:26-27 Trees came before Adam. Genesis 2:4-9 Trees came after Adam. Genesis 1:20-21 and 26-27 Birds were created before Adam. Genesis 2:7 and 2:19 Birds were created after Adam. Genesis 1:24-27 Animals were created before Adam. Genesis 2:7 and 2:19 Animals were created after Adam. Genesis 1:26-27 Adam and Eve were created at the same time. Genesis 2:7 and 2:21-22 Adam was created first, woman sometime later."
"In the beginning God. The most humbling thing to me in Genesis 1:1 The fact that God was, always has been, and always will be. Yet he planned in all of time to create me, and knows every detail of me. He cares very deeply about me, loves me p***ionately, no matter how utterly flawed my choices are in life. I come to Him in gratefulness to because of His amazing love."
"Genesis 1:14 God never went ahead to mourn over darkness but He said; let there be light and so it was. keeping silent of your dark situation is shutting your destiny. speak something positive about it and the situation will change."
"There is a gap between Genesis 1:1 and 1:2. Verse 1 says: In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. Now you cannot claim to have created something and it had no \"form\" or is \"void\". And if you\'re God you have the capacity to create everything perfect from the get go. So something happened to make the earth \"without form and void\". And that \"something\" was able to prevent the light of the sun from reaching the earth! Maybe some kind of unprecedented cataclysm?!"

"If you can\'t believe Genesis 1:1,then put it away,God says all scripture is the truth."
"All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching the truth, rebuking error, correcting faults, and giving instruction for right living, so that the person who serves God may be fully qualified and equipped to do every kind of good deed (2 Timothy 3:16 ). This means that all the books, chapters and verses, in the holy bible from Genesis 1:1 to Revelation 22:21, is inspired by God. God is unchangeable and when he say yes nobody can say no or semi-yes and vice versa. So please don\'t be deceived by anybody (Mathew 24:4 )."
"\"In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.\" (Genesis 1:1) \"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made.\" (John 1:1-3) \"And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day. Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had made; and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had made. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it He had rested from all His work which God created and made.\" (Genesis 1:31-2:3) Because God is God, He never tires, but yet the Bible says, \"He rested.\" The word \"rest\" in the dictionary means to refresh oneself. The word \"refresh\" means to revive or to stimulate as to memory. The word \"stimulus\" means: anything that rouses the mind or spirit. \"Rouse\" means to excite to vigorous thought or action; stir up. \"Vigorous\"- mental vigor. \"Vigor\"- effective force; validity. \"Validity\"- state of being valid. \"Valid\" means: based on evidence that can be supported; acceptable; convincing... When God rested, He didn\'t stop for to regain His strength. No... He stopped to appreciate the validity of His creation...His completed work, for: \"it was very good.\" After the fall of man, God saw that the WORLD needed a savior. \"And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.\" (John 1:14) \"Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as His mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily. But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a Son, and thou shalt call His name JESUS: for He shall save His people from their sins. Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a Son, and they shall call His name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, GOD WITH US.\" (Matthew 1:18-23) This is just a short history of the God of all creation and how He was born into this world. It is very appropriate that five days from now the WORLD will celebrate His birth, but His birth is not the reason for the season...\"For God so loved the WORLD, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.\" (John 3:16)The reason for the season is in His death, burial, and resurrection. \"For God so loved the WORLD...\" The word \"world\" in the English dictionary means: The earth; the universe; the cosmos. Earth- the abode of mortal man, as apposed to heaven and hell. Universe- the collective of all existing things; the whole creation embracing all celestial bodies and all of space; the cosmos. Cosmos- the world or universe considered as an orderly system; any harmonious and complete system. Everybody, including myself, believe that, \"For God so loved WORLD...\" meant that, for God so loved mankind, \"that He gave His only begotten Son...\" Now considering ALL that He created, it would seem somewhat arrogant to say that God\'s only begotten Son was given as God\'s perfect, blameless, and sinless Lamb to solely die for the sins of mankind. We know God to be all forgiving. We also know that after the completion of His creation, He said, \"...it was very Good.\" ALL was very good, no exceptions, which means that the heavenly hosts, His created angels were ALL good, until the fall of Lucifer...because sin entered his heart. I believe that when sin entered Lucifer, sin entered the WORLD (the universe), like a cancer which needed to be defeated. So when God decided to isolate the cancer (sin) in the WORLD, He gave up His only begotten Son as a sacrifice to die on the cross on Earth, because God has casted Lucifer down to Earth and is where the devil is allowed to spread his cancer. I believe that God\'s sacrifice is so great that when Jesus died for the sins of the WORLD, that it covered the sins of the entire universe. I believe that when Jesus died for the forgiveness of sins, it covered ALL whom sinned against God, including Lucifer and ALL that followed him. Does this mean that because ALL are forgiven, ALL are going to heaven? I\'m afraid not. In order for one to be given eternal life in heaven, one must know that they have sinned against a holy God. \"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.\" (Romans 3:23) And because of our sin, our penalty is death. \"For the wages of sin is death;...\" (Romans 6:23a) \"And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.\" (Revelation 20:14) If it ends here, then there is no hope for us ALL, because the WORLD (the universe) as we know it will be infected by the cancer of our sins, and because God would not allow this cancer to spread throughout the WORLD (the cosmos)...ALL that follow the devil will end up in hell! You are probably asking...IS THAT FAIR!? Why should we go to hell!? After all the devil is the cause of our sins! Again, I\'m afraid to say, the devil doesn\'t force us to do anything. He tempts us with sin, and because of our week condition in the flesh, we bite and therefore, we sin against God. And because God is an Holy and Just God, He must judge sin accordingly, and the payment of sin is death. So, because we have broken His commandments, we deserve hell. BUT \"...God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.\" (Romans 5:8) AND \"...the GIFT of God is eternal life THROUGH Jesus Christ our Lord.\" (Romans 6:23b) On another bible account, \"Jesus saith unto him, I am THE WAY, THE TRUTH, and THE LIFE: no man cometh unto the Father, BUT BY ME.\" (John 14:6) This simply means that THE WAY...is only through the Lord Jesus Christ and that nothing...not religion...nor baptism...nor being a good person...nor even being a preacher...can save a person from hell. THE TRUTH...is found in the Gospel of Jesus Christ, \"For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to EVERY ONE that BELIEVETH...\" (Romans 1:16a) And THE LIFE...is found only in the Lord Jesus Christ, \"Jesus said...I am the resurrection, and THE LIFE: he that BELIEVETH in me, though he were dead, yet shall he LIVE.\" FOR \"...God so loved the WORLD, that He GAVE His only begotten Son, that whosoever BELIEVETH in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.\" (John 3:16) So you see there is more to this famous verse than meets the eye! Yes, God...GAVE...His only begotten Son, but the...GIFT...is not enough without...BELIEVING...in thine HEART the Lord Jesus Christ, because it\'s a HEART matter and a matter of the HEART...and once you believe, then you must...ACCEPT...Him as your Savior. \"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt BELIEVE in thine HEART that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the HEART man BELIEVETH unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.\" (Romans 10:9,10,13) On this Christmas season, have you received the \"GIFT.\" If not why don\'t you bow your HEART to the LORD and humble yourself before God, and pray something like this: Dear God, I am coming to you the best way I know how. I know I am a sinner. I believe that Jesus died for my sins on the cross and was buried and rose from the dead on the third day. Please, God, forgive me for my sins. I am asking now, Jesus, come into my life, save my soul, and be my personal Lord and Savior. I am trusting you and you alone to take to heaven one day when I die. I ask these things in Jesus\' name. Amen."
"All topics in all articles i read were written good and completely understandable with all reference with it. John 1:1-In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. I belief that segment a, b and c of this verse is complementing each other to attain exact translation in which other version in segment c was translated as “and the Word was a god”. John carefully studied scripture of Genesis 1:1 in writing John 1:1 and all of his writing, but I belief that John was inspired by God in writing all of his books, he may be hearing some word coming from God descending from heaven or an angle sent by God and tell him to write the wisdom of God. John writes his scripture according what the angle tell him to write and nut by his (John) wisdom as Jesus saying “let this be happen by Your wisdom not mine”. Weather “was God” or “was a god” a deep understanding of segment a and b. My understanding of this verse is our God introduces to us the “Word”, He tell us that the Word was with Him, and therefore the Word was divine as Jesus Christ maintains throughout his stay in this world. I also belief that the Word was a Voice, a Sound coming out of the mount of God as powerful as God. The Word is not God, He is just like a lighting strike coming from heaven. He is powerful enough and qualified to be “The Son of God”. The Word is not a wisdom of God. The Word is the engraving tools of God in the creation of the universe that’s why the Word was there in the beginning. May i ask the author if you believed that Jesus (Lord of Lords, King of King, Son of God, The Messiah, The Savior, and The One who will give us forgiveness, In Him was life, He is the Way, Truth and the Life, with Eternal Deity, The Alpha and Omega and Others) is God? Yes or No. May answer is no. You will noticed that all of that Title was only given to Him (Jesus) by God, please note that that word \"give or given\", is commonly associated with all of the Title of Lord Jesus Christ, is an action of giving and receiving. The God in which all of the authority and entitlement was only give to the receiver. God is the Giver while Jesus Christ is the receiver. If Jesus tell saying “I will rise from death in three days”, yes, He will stand by himself because He is then well capable of standing alone upon receiving His new life from God likewise Lazaru, “That believing ye might have life through his name”, My question is who gave them their life? Our God gave them each life; if Jesus gave life to himself maybe he is not died and pulling us all with His dying prayer to God saying “time has come now” this phrase is the completion of the prophecy for Messiah will be died in cross, and Jesus “only” ordering Lazaru to rise and go out in the dungeon (both “come forth, to rise, to live” merely means go and have/enjoy your life, the power of giving a life is not with Jesus, its only from God, translation proven the parable in today’s Bible over the other Holy Book will be like a gold repeatedly heated under fire for its truthfulness will emerge, word/s seems to be complicated but if you heard it with the Entrusted there is only one truth, prophecies that there will be a false prophet rising among within you, It seems to be complicated belief is only induces by the devil and all of his resources, that fire will prove how faith you has to our God). Judgment day is here to come but nobody knows what times it will come even the Son Jesus Christ, the Apostles, the Prophets or even all the Angles, the decision is only, non other but with ONE GOD “not three” the Creator, not from the Son Jesus Christ. During Jesus forty day prayer at the mountain “Jesus saying: Your (God) will must be done not mine (Jesus)” this prove that Jesus has no power over The God but he is Word coming from God and also created by God as a Man, after all of the creation of God (including all Angles and Unseen) “will kneel to you (Jesus)”, in the succeeding verse “then all of you (including Jesus) will kneel then to God”. When Thomas saying: “My Lord and my God” in my understanding that “my God” is a modern day expression OMG because this was separated by the writer narration “and”, if this referring to one entity, writer should write “comma” instead of “and” (English OMG equivalent to today’s Susmaryosep referring to Jesus/Mary/Joseph in Filipino). I remembered in one of your article if not exactly not same as you write and i will quote “your phrase” that (you cannot read anything in the bible, “Jesus saying: “I am a God”\" yes, it’s true and “Jesus saying: “I am a man”” in any pages in Old and New Testament, The Bible). I am sure that passage, “Jesus saying: “I am a Man whom telling you the truth”” is written in The Bible. *I remember one of the songs of The Beatles \"one and one and one is three\"; they knew it is wrong to say “one and one and one are one”. There is \"only one truth\" about all books in the Bible, all books are complimenting each other that why \"other books\" is not included in our todays Bible, it is only twisted by some false preacher, proven the parable in today’s Bible over the other Holy Book will be like a gold repeatedly heated under fire for its truthfulness will emerge, word/s seems to be complicated but if you heard it with the Entrusted there is only one truth, prophecies that there will be a false prophet rising among within you, It seems to be complicated but is only induces by the devil and all of his resources, that fire will prove how faith you has to our God."

IT WAS CALLED THE KATABOLE, MEANING CAST DOWN OVERTHROW, ATTEMPTED OVERTHROW BY SATAN. ALSO CHAPTER 12 OF REV. IS AN OUTLINE OF THE BIBLE.

"God "Elohim" (sometimes "El" or "Elah"), English form "God," the first of the three primary names of Deity, is a uni-plural noun formed from "El", means "strength", or "the strong one", and "Alah", "to swear", "to bind oneself by an oath", so implying "faithfulness". This uni-plurality implied in the name is directly asserted in (Gen_1:26) (plurality), (Gen_1:27) (unity); see also (Gen_3:22). The Trinity is latent in Elohim. As meaning primarily the Strong One it is fitly used in the first chapter of Genesis. Used in the Old Testament about 2500 times."

"Jesus expects each believer to grow to the level where he/she can teach others. In many of the Epistles, the believer is encouraged to grow in grace and in the knowledge of Christ (2 Peter 3 : 18) .

"Shaun Lundy, the cross symbolizes what God, the creator of all things did because of His love for the people He created. John 3:16, "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in should not perish, but have everlasting life." Jesus was God in the flesh.. He came to live in the world, to experience the same challenges that we experience and to pay the penalty for our sins upon the cross. Then He rose from the dead and sits on the right hand of God the Father to make intercession for those who belong to Him. The cross is a sign of victory in Jesus! The Catholics depict Jesus on the cross but we like the empty cross because Jesus Christ didn't stay on that cross."
"Very first line of the bible - man/woman has to face their belief - is this real, or do i choose to not believe a word this book says ... THE VERY FIRST VERSE in the bible.

"...... And the earth was without form...."
"@ Sara Lynn Baker, Yo qsn of wat created God, u SHALL UNDERSTAND IT BETTER BY AND BY."
"@Anthony . you are only right about one thing. God knows. He does know and He said repeatedly that He created the Heavens the Earth and all that is within them in 6 days. Please don't be blown about by winds of doctrine. The claimed use of "formed" is not valid, as the terms are used interchangeably many places to refer to the same event. Now I'v personally written allot on this subject, and I'm sure you have dozens of reasons to think the way you do, so we could argue about this for a year, or you could ask the Holy Spirit to reveal His truth to you and repent of relying on your own understanding. Then if you are sincere He will show you plainly. So please ask God what He says, because if I win you through an argument it does you no good as you are still relying on your own understanding instead of the Word of God."
"@Tony Dave - the bible has been rewritten/translated many times over. If the new testament does not agree with the old testament then something is wrong in the new writings for God changes not. His glory will He not give to another neither His praise to graven images. Where in the old testament did God say His name is Jesus? God is not a man nor the son of man."

"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." Genesis 1: 1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. Verse 1 ends in a period as a statement in completion. The second verse talks about the earth being in disarray. God did not create the earth as a mess. God created the earth complete in verse one then the earth was made undone, voided. Genesis chapter 1 tells about two earth creation events. Verse 1 was the first earth where Ezekiel takes place. Ezekiel tells about the earth where God had the base of his throne and Lucifer had the job of being that earths protector standing in front of Gods throne with wings outstretched to protect the physical earth from Gods cleansing purity. That's where the rebellion took place and the first battle between God and his and the now named Satan. Satan was cast into prison and because Satan coveted the earth as his own God "unmade that earth". There is an undetermined amount of time that transpires between the period in verse 1 and the start of verse 2. Read Ezekiel and tell me where and when that happened if not the first earth it had to happen somewhere between the Garden and now. But remember Satan had been loosed and was in the garden as a serpent. Another thing to remember is that time is purely artificial and created only for us to exist in as we dwell here in a linear fashion to learn the things we need to learn. Where God naturally lives time does not exist because God is timeless. When Moses wrote those words he was writing as a man seeing things of God. His job was to take those visions and put them into something we could begin to grasp under Gods inspiration. We being for a season set below the angels in power do live under the law of time where God is above all laws for he is the law and has no need of time. We do need this thing called time so we do not go insane being finite for a season with infinity in our minds."

"In the Gospel of John 1:1 We read, In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. Since the word "Word" is capitalized we know it's a proper nown regarding a person. Who is "the Word"? Of course it's Jesus, the person. Meaning Jesus was from the beginning, as well as being God. It says so in black and white. He was formed inside of Mary, to be manifested as a man. To say this is not so, is to say God is not able to do this. That is the spirit of antichrist, and that is blashemy of the Holy Spirit."

Let’s stick to what we can grasp, in hope that in due course, God will clarify all that we don’t understand… 1 Corinthians 13: 12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known."
"Scientists say that the world emerged from the evolution of species, but the word of God says that all things were created by Him and nothing that was created would exist without Him (John 1:3). and also, it is necessary to have more faith in the evolution of species than actually in God's word that scientists judge it a mere book of fables, "I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that you hid these things from the wise and understanding, and revealed Them to infants.'' (Matthew 11:25) The world was created by the power of his word, He is a powerful and unchanging God and He does not need our human logic to be God."
