Understanding your Bible Lesson 1
In (Genesis 1:1), God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form, and void; And darkness was on the face of the deep. And the spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.
We know from the text that God created the heavens and the earth, but who was God, where did He come from, and what does the Bible say about God?
In (Genesis 1:2-3), the text said the spirit of
God was hovering over the face of the waters. Then God said, “Let there be light and there was light.” Before we study the creation we need to discover what the Bible says about God, His Son Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. Creation, in the book of
Genesis, is one of the most important books found in the Bible, Why? Because it tells us we have a creator, His name is God, He created us for a reason, and He has a plan for our lives. Before we get started it is important that you know God loves you, The
Lord is your heavenly Father, and He want’s to have a personal relationship with “you.”
four we learned a little about the Lord’s character and His will. We know the Lord is gracious and full of compassion, slow to anger and great in mercy. We also learned that the Lord is good to all, and His tender mercies are over all His works (Psalm 145:8-9). We also learned that it is not God’s will that any should perish but that all should come to repentance (2-Peter 3:9).
In this lesson, we will learn
that Jesus was present with God and with the Holy Spirit at the beginning of creation. However, before we can accept this revelation as truth, we must look carefully at, examine, and understand what John meant when he wrote In
the book of Revelation that Jesus is called the Word of God (Rev.19:11-13).
