Changing The Lights

Genesis 1:1-3

1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

2 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.

3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

“In the beginning” is referring to the beginning of creation as it refers to this universe.

God, on the other hand, was unformed, unmade, uncreated, He had no beginning; He always was and He will always be.

The phrase “in the beginning God” explains the first cause of all things as it regards to creation.

Habakkuk 3:3

3 God came from Teman, and the Holy One from mount Paran. Selah. His glory covered the heavens, and the earth was full of his praise. {Teman: or, the south}

In the Greek, Teman means always been, always existing.

In Habakkuk 3:3, Teman is referring to Sinai, this is referring to God leading the children of Israel out of Egypt through this barren wasteland.

The phrase, “and the Holy one from Mount Paran proper”, is where the law was given.

In Genesis 1:2, “That the Earth was without form, it was void and there was darkness upon the face of the deep”.

The Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

The moving of the Holy Spirit signifies the beginning of life.

Genesis 3:3

3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

In verse 4, it says that God saw the light and He divided the day from the night.

John 1:1-5

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

2 The same was in the beginning with God.

3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. {comprehended: or, did not admit, or, receive}

In the beginning of creation there was already God, and now John is saying in the beginning was the Word, and that the Word was with God and that the Word was God.

We see, in Genesis 1:1, that there was God. In Genesis 1:3, we see the Holy Spirit was there.

And now in John 1:1, we see where Jesus was also in the beginning.

In the beginning God said let there be light, and He divided the day from the night.

Sometimes I ask myself a question, “Why did God divide the night from the day?”

Why didn’t God just make it all light?

The reason I think is this, Satan had already fallen from grace, According to the Jimmy Swaggart Expository Bible, Satan had already fallen.

Satan had already made his choice in what he was going to do.

When God created the world, He knew that man had a choice that they were going to make, were they going to walk in the light or were they going to walk in the dark?

Satan, who is was sneaky and deceiving as any one could ever think about being, used the dark to work his deception on Adam and Eve.

Man had a decision that he was going to make.

God knew that Satan, after his fall, was going to go after man that he created.

The Good news is that we now have a way to get to the Father, and that is through God’s only begotten Son if we believe on Him, of we are obedient to His Word!
