The Bible said in Genesis 1 verse 3, "and God said let there be light ." Who was God speaking to? Was it Jesus?

Yes, he was speaking to Jesus. However, Jesus was the Logos or the Word before he came down to earth as the man Christ Jesus. ​ We might say that God was the great architect of the universe and that Jesus carried out the construction of it.  John 1:3 says, “All things were made by him; [...]

Did Satan create mosquitoes, flies, and scorpions? Was he so jealous of the relationship between man and the Lord, that he did this to hurt mankind?

Man now is exploring the technology of genetic modification to alter the inheritable characteristics of living creatures (even human babies). People involved with ethics in research are concerned about these developments.   Man has never been good at predicting all the unintended consequences of his actions. Satan knows far, far more about genetics than any [...]

What happened between Genesis 1:1 and Genesis 1:2?

“In the beginning was the Word” (John 1:1). The period before the "beginning" of Genesis 1:1 is unmeasurable. Time as we know it did not exist. However, God was active. He carried out his only direct creation -- bringing into existence his only-begotten Son--the "Word"--elsewhere called “Wisdom” (John 1:1; Proverbs 8:12-31).​ “In the beginning [of [...]

What things did God create on the fifth day?

The Darby Translation is the most accurate, word-for-word translation of these verses. First note that the word "creatures" is the Hebrew word, nephesh, (H5314), and it means soul. Genesis 1:20-23 (DBY), 20 And God said, Let the waters swarm with swarms of living souls, and let fowl fly above the earth in the expanse of the heavens. 21 [...]

I've lost my faith through the study of science. What can I do about this?

The Bible is God’s revealed Truth. It explains man’s purpose and man’s destiny; it explains our alienation from God and our restoration to His full fellowship through Christ Jesus. But God is the one and the same author of the book of nature, which was created through his wisdom (Proverbs 8:22-32). Any apparent conflict between [...]

All human beings have two natures-spiritual and physical. What is the difference between the spiritual nature of all human beings that returns to God after death and the Holy Spirit? How do they function together in the same body?

Nothing is stated in the Bible about mankind having two natures.  Genesis 2:7 teaches that God made man from the dust of earth then breathed life into him.  Man became a living soul. Soul = Body + Breath of life. He did not receive a soul with two natures. In fact, both the children of [...]

Is Jesus really Michael the archangel, and if so, did Jehovah use His first created being to create the world? A sincere question… I am 75 yrs old and trying to make sense with what I read. Thanks

Michael is more like a title than Jesus’ actual name. The heavenly being, Michael, is only identified as the archangel in Jude 1:9, “Michael the archangel.” What does this signify? The word “angel” means a messenger or ambassador. Archangel would include the thought of chief messenger or representative of God.  In Hebrew “Michael” is Strong’s [...]

How big is our universe? Was this universe created or did it exist with God? If created, did God alone create it or was it after the creation of Jesus?

The Bible does not speak about the size of our universe, but it speaks to the amazing power of our God. Currently, science sets an upper limit estimate for the size of our ever-expanding universe at 28 Gigaparsecs, or an amazing 864,100,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 meters (P. Bielewicz,  A. J. Banday, Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, [...]
