Genesis: God Word Power, Evolution and Creation
God created the universe, the Earth for us to live. Whoever choose to do what is good in their own eyes without obeying the word of God will be ultimately leading to death. The main message of Genesis which revolves around four great themes:
1.God and God alone created all things, 2.God is sovereign over his creation, 3.God created with wisdom and order, 4. God created man as the pinnacle of his creation.
11 Days reading Table for Genesis of 240 Days Bible Reading:
Genesis 1 gives an overview of what God has created. We see God creating living thing (plants, animals and man) as well as non-living things (heaven and earth, the sun, moon and stars to give light and mark the passage of time as well as the sky, dry land and seas as dwelling places for living things).
God’s sovereignty is shown by the fact that when God spoke what he commanded occurred. For example verse 3 states, “And God said, ‘Let there be light,’ and there was light.” This pattern is also seen for the creation of sky, dry land, plants, heavenly bodies, fish, birds, land animals and man (verses 6, 9, 11, 14, 20, 24, 26). God’s sovereignty is also seen in the naming of parts of creation (verses 5, 8, 10). For example the statement, “God called the light Day and the darkness he called Night” (verse 5)
That God created with wisdom and order is shown by his declarations that what he created was good (6 times) or very good (1 time at the end of the creation account). We also see this in the gradual giving of structure to a universe that was originally without form and void (verse 2). Finally, the creation is presented as an ordered series of events. For example the creation of spaces for creatures to dwell in (sky, land and seas) before the creation of the creatures themselves.
Genesis 1:26 states, Then God said, ‘Let us make man in our image, and after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing the creeps on the earth.” This places man at the pinnacle of creation since none of the other parts of creation are referred to in this way. Moreover man was given the responsibility of ruling over creation as God’s representative on earth (verses 26, 28-30).
3: And God said, let there be light: and there was light. 4: And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. God conceived the idea of creating light. God did not first saw it physically but He has it in His mind. He conceived it, spoke it and believed that what He has spoken would come to pass - Hebrew 11:1
In verse number 4, that which He conceived, spoken and believed came to existence and it was good, meaning that it was the exact thing He conceived in His mind that He gotten.
God expects us to ACT in similar way because we are His image here on Earth ?- Psalm 82:6a
