Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.
Genesis 1:1 “In the beginning”, beginning of What? It certainly isn’t the beginning of God, God has no beginning nor ending, he is Eternal, Unchangeable, Omnipotent, Omnipresent, Omniscient, Ps. 90:2, Mal.3:6, Jere. 32:27, Ps. 139:7-10, 2 Chronicles 16:9, Respectively.
“I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.” These are the Holy Attributes of the Almighty God! Therefore, what is this the Beginning of?
THE GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD!!!
Now we get to behold a few of those “Wondrous Things” as we start to look into the creation of God.
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 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
Before we get started with God’s creation let us consider what was present before God started his creation process. We have already established God was already present when talking about his attributes.
There are many beginnings of things in the scriptures, 17 verses of different beginnings of things to be exact. (Gen. 1:1, Judges 7:19, Ruth 1:22, 2 Sam.21:9. Ezra 4:6, Prov. 8:22, Jere. 26:1, 27:1, 28:1, 49:34, Lam. 2:19, Ezek. 40:1, Amos 7:1, John 1:1,2, Phil. 4:15, Heb. 1:10.) What is needed to make things clear is to clarify which beginning is being discussed. In our case the beginning is the beginning of the creation of Heaven and Earth, Gen. 1:1, not the throne room of God, nor the Seraphim, Cherubs, and Angels, they were all there when the God created the heaven and earth.
“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.”
Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth?
declare, if thou hast understanding.
Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest?
or who hath stretched the line upon it?
Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened?
or who laid the corner stone thereof;
When the morning stars sang together,
and all the sons of God shouted for joy? Or who shut up the sea with doors,
when it brake forth, as if it had issued out of the womb?
When I made the cloud the garment thereof,
and thick darkness a swaddlingband for it,
And brake up for it my decreed place,
and set bars and doors,
God was speaking to Job asking questions about the creation of the earth, but notice who was also there, When the morning stars sang together,
and all the sons of God shouted for joy? The Word does not say who or what the Morning Stars are, the scriptures do not say 0r even hint to who they are, but it is interesting who the Sons of God are. (Gen. 6:2, 4, Job 1:6, 2:1, 38:7, John 1:12, Romans 8:14, 19, Phil. 2:15, 1 John 3:1, 2). All of the underlined verses in bold show that the Sons of God are spirit beings and the other verses reveal who become the spirit beings after being born of God.
He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
That’s right, We become “Sons of God” and we will watch God, after watching him destroy the univserse including the earth, make a new heaven and earth, where there will be no more sea over the universe as there is now and God will dwell with us in the new Jerusalem,
And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
Interesting start about the Creation. This Beginning of heaven and earth is preceded by the Throne Room with a crystal sea, Morning Stars, Sons of God, and other types of creatures in what the apostle Paul called a third heaven 2 Cor. 12:2 existing before God said, “Let there be light” Gen. 1:3. To reveal the merits of this thought is to compare statements from both passages Gen. 1;1-2 and Rev. 21: 1-2. upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters and there was no more sea. We will get back “And the earth was without form, and void”, later. The Sea in Rev 21:1-2 is the same Crystal Sea of Rev. 4:6 and 15:2
And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind.
The Face of the Deep, the Face of the Waters in Gen. 1:1-2 is the same as the Crystal Sea in Revelation by comparing scripture with scripture. Therefore, Job 38:30 will give the light we need to understand is wondrous thing.
The waters are hid as with a stone,
and the face of the deep is frozen.
The Scripture compared with Scripture makes it easy to understand how these three passages about the “Deep” and “Crystal Sea” are speaking of the same thing. This is important when we continue about the creation of the heaven and earth and the destruction of this heaven and earth and having no more sea. Another verse in Genesis will show what the sea is,
And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so. And God called the firmament Heaven.
We have already established that God’s Throne Room was in existence with the different creatures, Morning Stars, and Sons of God. Gen.1:1-2 mentions the waters, the frozen deep, where the firmament, our universe was immersed into. An inverted fish bowl would best describe what this would look like. The Firmament/universe would be the fish bowl where the waters, instead of being on the inside were on the outside, surrounding the universe, thus having the sea, the deep, below the throne room and above the Firmament/Universe.. Therefore, when God destroys the heaven/universe, and earth, and there is no more sea, then what is left is the Throne Room of God, with all who was there before including all those born-again of the Church Age, those saints of the Old Testament, and Tribulation! There is one of those wondrous sights to behold close to the end of
