Lets Study so-as-to

The following brief study of Genesis
1:1 & 2 are of my personal research and opinion.
It will also help to know that there were "things" God had closed up and sealed until the "time of the end" Daniel 12:4 & 9. Those times spoken of are now upon us. To know that we are now in the "time of the end" research "the generation of the figtree", Jesus said LEARN IT. It began in 1948.
If you are of the mind that wonders why some seem to be teaching and preaching things of the bible that are "new" to you, different than what you were taught then the answer as-to why, and why now, and at this time may be found in a study of Daniel 12.
Below we will review a few important words for this short study:
without form of formless - also of the same root as vain H18414
the beginning" in a nutshell.
And now verse 2 (in part)
And the earth was
without form, and void;
verse 2, one would "assume"
that this creation of the earth, was created "formless & void", however that
is NOT what the scriptures tell us. When we take the verse back to it's original
language/manuscripts we will discover a few interesting things.
a point of reference, this is verse 2 in the original, Hebrew tongue: Note: it
reads from Right to Left
Torah-online: For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens, He is God; that formed the earth and made it, He established it, He created it not a waste, He formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD, and there is none else.
at this point we could just say,
well sure, that was His intentions, but before He got to the "to
be inhabited" part He first made it without form and void. NO,
He did not. Scripture
emphatically states, that "He created it not
in vain" period.
will become clear and make even more sense a bit further on in this reading.
A Fact - He created it "not in vain", we are taught He "created" it without form, and void"
We know from our word study that the meaning of the words "void", "vain" and "without form/unformed" all pretty much conclude the same thing.
Lets do a bit of a review.
when understood from the original manuscripts, in the Hebrew tongue, is the word
which means "to
lie waste; a desolation (of surface), that is, desert;"
that God is NOT the God of confusion. (1
comprehend God's word is to Rightly Divide that Word as God has instructed
us to do. 2
I'm getting up there in age and have talked with others even older than myself and a common, and accepted understanding is that God, in the beginning, created the earth and it was created without form and void. - We take this verse at face value and without even a hint of questioning it. The sad truth is most students of God's Word have their understandings of this verse and it is in-fact a "mis"understanding.
If one was to take that little English word, "was" back to the original language so-as-to discover it's actual meaning, one would not only solve a great misunderstanding about Genesis 1, verses 2 but gain a deeper awareness and understanding about God and His reasons for doing what He did.
Through a deeper study of these scripture and a new "understanding" of the facts
one will discover why we are here in the flesh in the first place and not as God
had intended, with Him, home, in heaven and in on natural state of being, Spirit.
Concordance word study on the word "was"
in Genesis 1:2
A Hint: The Katabole, the overthrow, of a time so long ago when that Cherub Lucifer was cast out of heaven for his "freewill" deed of not guarding the mercy seat but wanting to claim it, to overthrow God Himself. That's for another study and you will find some of the answers to this and other questions within this on-line version of my Bible Studies and Research.
refer to this kind of understanding of Genesis 1:1 & 2 as a "Gap" theory,
they claim this is a false theory/teaching. I challenged their claims with many,
many hours, days, weeks, months of Research and conclude that it is they that
do not have clear understanding but cling to the old traditions on men.
My mind & heart has made it's choice, you must make your. The information provided here and within this site is but a fraction of what I have discovered, collected, researched, studied, and unlike most of the folks that have job's, families, commitments that take up much of their time & focus, all I have is time and I chose to spend much of it focused on Researching and studying God's Word, seeking truth, the "actual" Truth of our Father's word, not the traditions of men that have been taught throughout the ages. And really, did our Loving, Heavenly Father condem all of mankind for all of time because of an apple, think about that....
makes clear in His word that not all that "read" His word will understand
it. As it says in 2
Timothy 2:15 Authorized
For students of the Bible to build a strong, proper and correct understanding of God's word we need a good foundation. You can NOT have a good foundational understanding of the Word if you do not have, or even understand the very foundation of the Word itself, In the beginning, what other foundation is there?
I invite all to "do your research" study and know.
