God’s Plan for Redemption Revealed in First 5 Verses of the Bible!

God led me to do an exegetical study of Genesis 1:1-5 a few months ago. What I found BLEW MY MIND!

God showed us His character and spelled out the eternal plan of redemption in the first five verses of the Bible!!! And He was even a little graphic about it! (LOL!)

GENESIS 1:1-5

VERSE 1)

In the beginning God created the heavens (AN ELEVATED, DIVINE WORLD BEYOND OUR REACH) and the earth (FIRM GROUND.)

VERSE 2)

Now the earth (FIRM GROUND) was formless (WORTHLESS CONFUSION) and empty (UNDISTINGUISHABLE RUIN), darkness (SORROW, DEATH, MISERY, DESTRUCTION, WICKEDNESS) was over the surface of the deep (BOTTOMLESS, DESTRUCTIVE COMMOTION), and the Spirit of God was hovering (INCUBATING, COVERING WITH HIS WINGS) over the waters (SEMEN).

  •  Verse 2 Translation:  Now the (FIRM GROUND) was (WORTHLESS CONFUSION) and (UNDISTINGUISHABLE RUIN), (SORROW, DEATH, MISERY, DESTRUCTION, WICKEDNESS) was over the surface of the (BOTTOMLESS, DESTRUCTIVE COMMOTION), and the Spirit of God was (INCUBATING, COVERING WITH WINGS) over the (SEMEN). – WOOT! WOOT!

VERSE 3)

And God said, “Light! (ILLUMINATE! BE HAPPY!),” and there was light (ILLUMINATION, HAPPINESS).

VERSE 4) 

God saw that the light (ILLUMINATION, HAPPINESS) was good, and he separated (DISTINGUISHED, SEVERED) the light (ILLUMINATION, HAPPINESS) from the darkness (SORROW, DEATH, MISERY, DESTRUCTION, WICKEDNESS).

VERSE 5)

God called the light (ILLUMINATION, HAPPINESS) “day (THE PROCESS OF TIME, CONTINUAL OUTLIVING),” and the darkness (SORROW, DEATH, MISERY, DESTRUCTION, WICKEDNESS) he called “night (A TWIST AWAY FROM THE LIGHT).”  And there was evening (TO COVER WITH A TEXTURE; OCCUPY), and there was morning (TO BREAK FORTH, TO PLOW)–the first day (PROCESS OF TIME, CONTINUAL OUTLIVING).

God indicated that He can bring life to things that are dead simply by hovering (INCUBATING) presence over the water (SEMEN) that was in the deep (BOTTOMLESS DESTRUCTIVE COMMOTION)! WOOT! WOOT!

Have you had a situation that you could classify as (WORTHLESS CONFUSION), (UNDISTINGUISHABLE RUIN), (SORROW, DEATH, MISERY, DESTRUCTION, WICKEDNESS) or (BOTTOMLESS, DESTRUCTIVE COMMOTION?)  In the midst of that DEEP situation there is SEED (SEMEN) for LIFE! GET IN HIS PRESENCE AND LET HIM HOVER (INCUBATE) OVER YOU! God is using those seasons in the deep(BOTTOMLESS, DESTRUCTIVE COMMOTION) and darkness (SORROW, DEATH, MISERY, DESTRUCTION, WICKEDNESS) to birth destiny!

In the midst of the formlessness (WORTHLESS CONFUSION), God said “Light!” (ILLUMINATE! BE HAPPY!)  We must remember His faithfulness and promises and recall that FROM THE BEGINNING He separated (DISTINGUISHED, SEVERED) the light (ILLUMINATION, HAPPINESS) from the darkness (SORROW, DEATH, MISERY, DESTRUCTION, WICKEDNESS)  AND he intentionally called them night (A TWIST AWAY FROM THE LIGHT) and day (THE PROCESS OF TIME, CONTINUAL OUTLIVING).

THE BIG PICTURE:

From the beginning God was showing us His plan for mankind. God knew before the foundation of the world that man would TWIST AWAY FROM THE LIGHT (night), live in SORROW, DEATH, MISERY, DESTRUCTION, WICKEDNESS  (darkness) and that by sending His Son He would DISTINGUISH/SEVER (separate) us from it by bringing ILLUMINATION, HAPPINESS (light) and it would CONTINUALLY OUTLIVE the darkness through the PROCESS OF TIME (day).

So whether you look at a circumstance in your life right now, or at God’s ultimate plan for mankind…. Recognize this: There was evening (TO COVER WITH A TEXTURE; OCCUPY), and there was morning (TO BREAK FORTH, TO PLOW): a day (A PROCESS OF TIME, CONTINUAL OUTLIVING). This is the HOPE we have …. Our God is SOVEREIGN and we are guaranteed the VICTORY!

You better shout right about now….WOOT! WOOT!
