The Holy Spirit In History and Prophecy: The Creation Of Matter And Man
"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"
"1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the Earth" of Genesis 1:1 is one of the most famous verses of the Holy Bible. The Holy Scriptures include even more detail: "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 ... And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth" (see also A Biography Of Jesus Christ: The LORD God Of Creation). Notice also the reference to "light": "In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness."
"1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God.
"1:2 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. 1:3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. 1:4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. 1:5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day." (Genesis 1:2-5 KJV)
The Spirit of God is the Power of God. It was that Power, or Energy, that was used to not only create physical matter, but to create physical matter of itself. Science recognizes that reality, while most-often denying it. That equivalence of energy ("spirit") and matter (energy and matter are simply two forms of the same thing e.g. a piece of wood can be transformed into heat energy) is stated in Albert Einstein's famous E = mc2 equation, as first published in his 1905 paper Does the Inertia of a Body Depend Upon Its Energy Content?. Without the energy of the Holy Spirit and the Creator's pre-created Laws of physics, the so-called "Big Bang" would have been the "Big Dud."
Physical lifeless matter was created first. It would be needed to sustain the living matter that would later be made from it - and thereafter sustain it. Then, the first life on Earth were plants whose roots would provide a conduit for all living matter.
"1:6 And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. 1:7 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. 1:8 And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.
Then, "animal" living creatures (see What Makes Creatures Clean or Unclean?), and then man (see Adam and Adamah and Who Did God Call Adam?; also Eve Was Created From Adam; What Woman Was Created From Jesus Christ? and How Long Was Adam Alone?.
"1:20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. 1:21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. 1:22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. 1:23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.
Fact Finder: Did Albert Einstein understand about how Creation happened?
