Welcome to the Bible Blog
Hi, Thanks for joining me in reading the Bible.
Last year we read through the New Testament. This year (2009) we want to look at passages of Scripture in both the Old and New Testaments. Feel free to comment or ask questions. Your comments will be delayed though in posting due to spam control.
When we started this blog it was for the purpose of encouraging people to read the Bible. I want to get back to that. We have read through the New Testament and now I want to post through the Old Testament. I may not get to post everyday, but I hope you will be reading everyday. As before I will post the chapter for reading then any comments I have or interesting commentaries I have found on the chapter.
Genesis 1 -
Ge 1:1 ¶ In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
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.
3 ¶ And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
6 ¶ And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.
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.
8 And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.
9 ¶ And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.
10 And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.
11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
13 And the evening and the morning were the third day.
14 ¶ And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:
15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.
16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.
17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,
18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.
19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.
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.
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.
22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.
23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.
24 ¶ And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.
25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
26 ¶ And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
29 ¶ And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.
31 ¶ And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day. (KJV)
This chapter sets the base and foudation. There are many people who have a problem with these first few chapters. They will try anything not to believe that God is the Creator. If they acknowledge that God is indeed the Creator, they must admit to being accountable to God, and they don't want to have to account to anyone but themselves. Refusing to believe the truth, doesn't change it.
In the beginning - GOD!
He created all we know plain and simple and He did it in six literal days.
People want to say but evidence shows evolution, but truth be told much of the so called evidence of evolution is not really evidence - some of it is twisted facts, some of it is just made up. Like it or not evolution is still just a theory - not a proven fact.
Either way you decide to believe it will be by faith. You can choose to put your faith in ever changing science or you can put your faith in God. I choose to trust God who loves me. He loved me enough to tell me the truth of how I came to be, of how I came to be a sinner and what the future holds. He loved me enough to make a way I could be forgiven for my sin and delivered so I could KNOW I would live forever with Him in eternity. I choose His way - the Lord Jesus Christ.
I believe that In the Beginning God created and I believe about 2000 years ago, Jesus Christ died on the cross for my sins and arose again in victory. I believe when I told the Lord I was sorry for my sin and asked Him to save some 30+ years ago He did and that He is keeping me now. I also believe His Word when it says that Jesus is coming back for those that are His and it could be any minute. I want to be ready and watching, because I love Him and I believe Him.
Who or what do you believe?
