Prayer:

Hi Lo, reader.  How are we today?  Let’s say a prayer that Yeshua really lords over our lives for the remainder of this week.  That He brings us into deep fellowship with the church through His word.  He is king and loves us and we thank Him for that.  Change is what we seek, we want our knowledge of who He is to grace our minds and to bring us into a deeply intertwined communion with the Holy Spirit.

Genesis 1:

 {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.  And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.  And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.  And God called the light day, and the darkness he called night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.}

Please, before reading ,watch this beautiful video that will aid us in this study.  If you don’t care to watch the whole thing just skip to four minutes and fifty seconds: Reuben Margolin: Motion Sculptor.

That is an artists perspective on this natural occurrence.  Here is another perspective from the scope of people who study God’s creation and all its behavior’s (most of them miss this point: that if God created such awe inspiring things than He must be eons greater than His own creation, and more complicated too!).  The only difference for this video that we might suggest is that at four minutes and twenty five seconds Dr. Quantum says “the electron decided to act differently”.  As we believers know, the electron was created, by Yahova, to act whichever way it acts in a given situation.  Check this out!: Double Slit Experiment.

If you are anything like me, you skipped over the verse above thinking I already have read that.  Tens of times.  Let’s concentrate on something: <And the earth was without form, and void>  Wow, that is deep.  Is scripture meaning to tell us that the world was created, yet had not come into tangible existence yet?  Let’s look at the earthly definitions of formless and then of voidFormless: without a clear or definite shape or structure (adj).  According to that definition it seems so.  An idea is formless, right?  Unwritten and written rules and laws are formless, yet they govern everything we do.  Lastly, There are a lot of things in the world of spirituality that are formless.

Now lets look at Void: A completely empty space (adj).  The earth, on the first day, was without a clear or definite shape or structure and was completely empty space.  We can then conclude that the earth existed before it existed.  Much like a bench that a carpenter makes exists, in his mind, before it exists.  Not really like that, it was more like it had existence yet was not . . . how do we say, matter.  That’s all, it wasn’t quite matter yet.  It was well on it’s way to becoming matter.

In studying these first few words of the Bible lets think that God is inviting us to understand the reality that we easily exist within, full of form and very tangible, is patterned after something that may not be quite like that.

Acts 17: 6

< And when they found them not, they drew Jason and certain brethren unto the rulers of the city, crying, These that have turned the world upside down are come hither also;>

The way that things ordinarily function tend to change when disciples are around.  The people in control don’t care much for that.  hehe.  Now we are slightly straying from the point so let us get back on target.

Let us look at numbers.  The book itself probably attests for this idea in a great many ways however, we are going to look at a different numbers.  Spiritual things are not matter, but they have representations of themselves all around us.   We cannot buy 4 (the number).  We cannot hold 12.  We are not capable of creating 7.  We can though, hold 3 apples and the number three does a real fine job at pinning down the idea that is 3.  The closest we can get to holding 5 would be to make something into the shape of a 5 and then hold it.  In that case we are holding the representation of five.  Another way to hold the representation of five would be to hold 5 things.

If it were cameras some one might say “what’s with the cameras?” missing the whole five thing completely.  If you were holding something that were in the shape of a five someone might say “whats with the five?”  This idea of it being a representation is close to the point.

As we go further into the first few verses of scripture we learn that {darkness was upon the face of the deep.}  This was before there was any form yet.  There was yet to be an amount of matter to settle into a something to create a tangible deep.  So what can we take from this?  Lets take the representation of what deep is.  When we have a heady experience in conversation or God places something intense like an epiphany into a believer’s mind a man may think or say “man, that was deep” .  Darkness was on the face of that; and on the face of a group of liquids that have settled together into a something that holds enough of it for God to consider it deep.  Now we know that probably everything known to man is simply a representation of something spiritual.

Water is definitely a representation of something very powerful: it has polarity, is life sustaining, cleansing, dense, viscous, see through, dependable, and tangibly carries waves.  It says that The Spirit of God moved on the face of that.  What does it mean by “the face”?  I can bet that it means something close to “what the surface of something shows, or what can be gathered at first glance.”  <And the spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.>  Beyond that we read that there was light and a separation of it being good from the darkness.  The first day.

What we know light to be is photons that come in packets.  So aside from those little photon packets in the first day God didn’t create anything our human bodies would be able to exist in.  It is quite possible that those photons weren’t yet poking into the reality that had not yet been stretched out yet.  Who knows?  All we know is that it is some really cool stuff to think about.

We are so incredibly privileged to live in a world where we can come into direct relationship with Yeshua, Our God, who pokes through into our world presently in the form of acts of Fatherly advice and rearing, kindness, oppression and opportunity, Love and the need to change.  God we love You and thank You for Your patience with us as we try and make changes that are suitable to You.  Sanctify us for Your work.  You are everything, we lift up Your name and ask You to make it our will to properly sing Your praises.  JOY!
