Life was lost. Man was created perfect - in the image of God. Genesis 1:27-28 (KJV), "So God created man in his own image,...And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and [...]
Genesis 1:31 (WEB), "God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. There was evening and there was morning, a sixth day." This ending statement is made after each creative day. But on the Seventh day the statement of "there was evening and there was morning, a seventh day" is not made by Elohim Yahweh. Why? What's the meaning or implication of this? (India)
The seventh day is not yet finished. Mankind has been living through the seventh day. As you noted, Yahweh uses, “there was evening and there was morning” at the end of each of the six creative days. Yahweh blessed the seventh day, and He is now resting [...]
Summary: The Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil was a test of man’s obedience to God. Discussion: John 4:23 (NKJV), “But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father [...]
IN GEN 1:2 AND THE EARTH WAS WITHOUT FORM, AND VOID; AND DARK-NESS WAS UPON THE FACE OF THE DEEP. AND THE SPIRIT OF GOD MOVED UPON THE FACE OF THE WATERS. THE LINKING VERB WAS, HAS SEVERAL DIFFERENT MEANINGS. SO IS IT POSSIBLE THAT GENESIS 1:2 ISSAYING: AND THE EARTH BECAME WITHOUT FORM, AND VOID; and so far? ALSO IF YOU CAN REPLACE THE LINKING VERB WAS, WHAT OTHER VERB WOULD YOU REPLACE IT WITH? THANK YOU (United States) RD
In considering the sense of Genesis 1:2 we are blessed to have the guidance of investigations into the early earth’s geology. The harmony of the testimony of Genesis and of the testimony am geology is amazing – the earth was covered completely by the ocean [...]
God has great love for the animal kingdom and asked Adam to name the animals for us. (Genesis 2:19-20). Our Lord made animals for man’s companionship and service. Mankind has a responsibility to humanely care for them because they are God’s gift to us. There are [...]
The giving of a law by any competent authority implies the ability of the recipient to keep that law. The giving of a law presupposes the possibility of its violation, and, hence, a law always has penalties attached to it. Father Adam was created in [...]
The earth is a gift from God to mankind! “Thus saith Jehovah, Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool.” “And I will make the place (footstool) of my feet glorious.” “And his (Jehovah’s) feet shall stand in that day upon the [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
“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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth,” Genesis 1:1. “Do you not know? Do you not hear? Has it not been told you from the beginning? Have you not understood from the foundations of the earth? It is he who sits above the [...]
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 [...]
Genesis 1:2-4, “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. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God [...]
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. [...]
“Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, and the one who formed you from the womb, ‘I, the LORD, am the maker of all things, Stretching out the heavens by Myself And spreading out the earth all alone,’” Isaiah 44:24 (NASB) When studying the Bible [...]
Job 41:1,15 “Can you draw out Leviathan with a hook, Or snare his tongue with a line which you lower?…His back is made of rows of shields (scales?), shut up closely as with a seal.” A “leviathan” denotes a very large, fierce sea animal [...]
Why did God make Third World countries where no one had ever heard of God and they don’t know how to live?
When God made Adam and Eve, He created them in His own image. (Genesis 1:27). Therefore, mankind knows right from wrong. Romans 2:14-15 (NLT), “Even Gentiles, who do not have God’s written law, show that they know his law when they instinctively obey it, [...]
