THE BEGINNING GOD Genesis 1:1-5

First, We want to note that God was in the beginning.

The Bible begins with God and so we must begin with him always. Back of all, above all, before all is the God of Genesis. First in our thoughts; first in rank and station and power is the God of the Bible. He is the Almighty One, the self-existent One, the One who gives being to everything else, all things existing by him and through him and for him, the only one worthy to receive glory and power and honor. He has created all things and for his honor and delight they were created. Every soul is God’s and exists by his pleasure. The only thinkable relation between us is one of sovereign lordship on his part and total submission on ours. We owe God every honor that there is in our power to give him. We shall spend our moments and our days freely exalting this living God.

We will give him his proper place over us. “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” The sentence tells us four things

1. It was in the beginning that God created everything.

When everything else began God was already there. Time and space and dimensions and matter all have a beginning, but God did have a beginning. There is nothing that exists that did not have a beginning; all things can be traced back to Genesis chapter one and verse one. This is the final explanation of the beginning of everything. The Creator, however, is different from every other kind of being. He never began. We can compare him to nothing at all. We are told nothing about the origin of our God. The living God is without beginning or end of days; he is from eternity to eternity. He himself had no cause; he has no birthday, and he has no external life-support system; he is self-sufficient. He is the eternal self-existent one, before everything else there was God alone, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. This was the God who in the beginning acted and made everything.

"My Name is I Am" (By Helen Mallicoat) I was regretting the past and fearing the future suddenly my Lord was speaking: "My name is I Am." He paused. I waited. He continued, "When you live in the past with its mistakes and regrets, it is hard. I am not there. My name is not I WAS. "When you live in the future, with its problems and fears, it is hard. I am not there. My name is not I WILL BE. When you live in this moment, it is not hard. I am here. My name is I!

2, God is the only One responsible for creation.

God created it. Both the plan and the accomplishment of the universe was his. There was nothing and nobody else making any suggestions to him, let alone helping him. There was God alone purposing, designing and the human race within God’s creation began. God did it because he chose to do it God created the heavens and the earth. Whenever this word ‘created’ is found in the Bible then you will notice three remarkable features.

a. Created is used only of producing something new. That is why it is used so sparingly, even in the story of creation. It occurs only three times in referring to the primary act of creation, the creation of conscious life, and the creation of man. He creates only sparely, and with the creation of man his creativity ceases.
