In the beginning…..God. That says a lot doesn’t it? In fact, that almost says it all. Even the use of the word, “beginning,” says a lot. God, the one who has existed always from eternity past, created the very beginning. God, who had no beginning and will have no end, only created a “beginning” for us, his created wonder. That is pretty amazing stuff, and seems to answer the often asked question: “Hey, what gives your God the right to (fill in the blank)?” What gives Him the right? In the beginning….God. That, in a nutshell, gives Him the right.
God was not alone in this before the beginning; he was with…Himself. Huh you say? Father, Son and Holy Spirit have always existed outside of time and space from eternity past. Three, yet…one. I don’t get that, and I bet you don’t either, so let’s just look at what He has taught us in His Word.
As we move along into verse 2, we see another person of the Trinity as, “the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.” Wait, you say: Where is Jesus the Son in all of this? A clear reading of God’s Word elsewhere tells us this also. Let us look, shall we?
Here we see John, clearly referring to our Lord Jesus Christ in John 1:1-3
“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.”
And if that is not enough, let’s look at some more:
Hebrews 1:2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds
Colossians 1:16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him
Here is some truth: I don’t get it, and I don’t understand it. I know of no Bible student whether brand new and learning, or with decades of study in their toolbox who does. I do know that God reveals in His word, though. In the beginning God(Father, Son and Holy Spirit) were present working together and created the heaven and the Earth.
