“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1)
God is nothing but beginnings, creation and moving forward.
In the beginning
In the beginning, God created, are there 5 stronger words anywhere else in any language? In the beginning, which means the beginning of time and substance. Think about it, God was before that. God was before substance, matter and before time. God as far as man can understand existed in a void, a timeless and shapeless void. A “place” that doesn’t have a past or future just a present.
Then God for whatever reason created the heaven and the earth. All points of reference for man now begin. Carnal man thinks and understands through his senses. Touch, see, feel, smell and hear is not only how he intellectually perceives his world around him, but how he processes things as well. Eliminate the 5 senses and man is not only lost, but simply doesn’t exist. Man must process something for him to have intellect and to have being. With nothing he is nothing.
This is why it is so difficult for man to understand God before space, matter and time. Man couldn’t exist in a void, how could God?
“O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out! For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor? Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again? For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.” (Romans 11:33-36)
