Genesis chapter 1
Comments below
and
the window under here has the actual text NIVThe Interesting point is that chapter 1 and 2, I believe the true message has been destroyed because of what Theologians are teaching.Some people say the world is 10 thousand years old approx and people say other teaching and you can go onto Google and you can have a lot of information.With my thinking I believe what the Scientists teach is correct and the the Universe is billions of years old and the Universes billions of years away is correctEvolution etc teaches the earth came into being somehow where the original matter they cannot answer where it started the actual matter. and then they go onto picturing and evolution type of way the earth came into being after the Big Bang.How the Universes formed can be correct and how the Earth came into being can also be correct. So I give a lot of yes, to what the scientists are teaching.The only debate with me is that it was God that brought matter into being, to exist. But many scientists do the best to say there is no God anywhere in the picture. But as Christians we start with a living God. So God brought matter into existence

Text comment now.

To set the scene with God there is no space or time. In other words a million years is as 1 day. God speaks in Abraham and then he states I told you in Abraham this is the case. God, you, me, Abraham talking together now. Time irrelevant.

Space is talking about God is everywhere. So I am in Deepwater Australia and you could be in Syria and to God there is no space that separates us we are together in God’s Kingdom etc.

So in Genesis Chapter 1 God Created the heavens and the earth. God here is simply saying he made the world. And we see how he made the world.

The earth was formless and empty and darkness. So here we see what the scientists are saying matter exist here but there is no form which comes over time. As we know what the scientists are teaching and in the billions of years the Universe the Earth Planets etc has to be formed.

The difference in thinking here is most scientists cut God out of the picture so their theory is by chance the  form, empty, the darkness came together to build our universe and world.

This verse 1 tells us God was the originated the earth in the beginning was in chaos and then the Spirit of God was hovering over the water. So matter came into being no form then in a deliberate way God’s Spirit engineered  the shape of the matter and guided the matter to become the wonderful Universe we see and the planets and more.

So that is chapter 1 verse 1

What happens next is a picture of what has happened and God simply uses day 1 to day 6 to reveal to us to understand. The picture is not to be taken a chronology of God did this or that after each day .

God talked about
     1/ Light, Darkness. The Sun creates the light and dark
     2/ Water in the heavens  and the water on our earth. seas, ocean. A separation of the waters as we know the water is on the earth and then it evaporates etc and we have the water in the heavens such as rain etc.
     3/ God talks about the earth and the ocean being separated so this happened as the well began to be shaped. This time period can be millions and even more. As I said to God time is irrelevant.
     4/ Then we see the lights in the heavens such as stars, planets, sun, moon. And this time is the fourth day, yet we know the picture here would have been in place on day 1 when God separated the  light from the darkness because we know without the sun there is no lights, no light and the darkness comes as we move away from the sun such as our day light and night darkness.
    So this picture on the fourth day is simply a statement allocated to the fourth day. The lights in the heavens were in place even before the day 1 God was simply allocating days 1-6 to reveal the creation of God. Not an active creation on each day but God has taken the curtain away in a order way we can understand.

So this means I am agreeing with the scientists with their goal to gain as much as possible knowledge how the universe and earth came into being.
The only difference is as a Christian we say God was the motor, the engine how the matter finally came to the Universe Earth as we know and now we see further and further into space and we realize the universe distance is billions of years.

What happened did not happen by chance.

In Genesis 1:20  we see God said, Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the vault of the sky.”21 So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living thing with which the water teems and that moves about in it, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 22 God blessed them and said, “Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the water in the seas, and let the birds increase on the earth.” 23 And there was evening, and there was morning—the fifth day.

How this happened we do not know. There is no clue other then somehow God made the fish, birds etc and once in place things happened and born, dieing and life goes on.

Then we find in Genesis 1: 24  And God said, “Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: the livestock, the creatures that move along the ground, and the wild animals, each according to its kind.” And it was so.25 God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.

How this happened we do not know. There is no clue other then somehow God made the fish, birds etc and once in place things happened and born, dieing and life goes on.

There is room for all the different theories on how creatures land creatures, and those creatures in the ocean. And can be millions of years of evolving over time

So now we go to Genesis chapter 26-28

26 Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, ] and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”

27 So God created mankind in his own image,
    in the image of God he created them;
    male and female he created them

So God made Man and Female. Mankind Man came from the dust and Female from Adams rid

So from my perspective and the Christian view God made Man and Female. We know God did but how it happened we do not know.

Finally we see more in Genesis chapter 2 and then I will make a conclusion.

 I will show you that these chapters are not meant to be taken one verse from another showing what happened

My comments on Matthew Chapter 1.  Text is below this window
It is no mistake that Genealogy of  Jesus starts with Abraham contrasting with another Genealogy that starts with Joseph and traces Jesus Christ back to the Adam was a son of God.

Jesus Christ is Abraham’s starting point for all those who have faith in Jesus Christ. If you like in Faith we are children of Abraham and we are a descendant of Abraham as God promised Abraham. By Faith we are saved.

The Birth of Jesus Christ is worth a comment because Joseph saw Mary was pregnant so he thought she did the wrong thing and he was going to quietly get rid of her.

The angel said to Joseph do not be afraid to take Mary for a wife18 This is how the birth of Jesus the Messiah came about[d]: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be pregnant through the Holy Spirit. 19 Because Joseph her husband was faithful to the law, and yet[e] did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly.20 But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. 21 She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus,[f] because he will save his people from their sins.”In Mary’s case the seed for the child was placed by the Holy Spirit into Mary’s womb and then a normal pregnancy happened.

This fits in place the fact that Jesus did not come from the world. Jesus was born into God’s world from Heaven. The seed from heaven so he was a true child of God and we find Jesus in fact was a true son of God in a true way. Jesus is the exact reflection of his Father, God himself. So now as we know when we see Jesus we see God.

We can see the contrasting situation where we are born in the world and we are then taken out of the world into God’s Kingdom we are adopted in to God’s Kingdom.

Jesus never had he was a true son of God he existed always and then an amazing thing happen when we sinned God loved us and though we are lost because of our sin Jesus was given a people which is us,  he was born in the earth to claim his place in saving a people, that is we who come to Jesus and  Jesus had to die and shed his blood for us. It is simply amazing

So Mary was a virgin from our perspective but in fact God chose Mary to bring the world a Saviour who is Jesus Christ.

We will now move to chapter 2 of Matthew.
