New Beginnings of All Things USA

Have you ever wondered about ‘How Did I Get Here’;  ‘From Where Did I Come’; ‘How Did I Get Put With the Parents I Have’; ‘What Am I Supposed to Do With the Life I Have Been Given? Do not worry about feeling like the lone ranger with those questions. There comes a time in our lives that we the human race of mankind; be you male or female of this race will indeed ask of ourselves those questions. My suggestion would be to start from the beginning of “The Holy Bible” written by men who were filled with the Spirit of God for whatever reason in their own stage of life looking for those same questions in addition to a few more that related to their own personal life. They may not have been aware of the need for our Creator whom I call God the Father of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob to step into their lives and lead them through their purpose in life, or were they?

With the focus on God, I will start at the beginning of all things that God has done in His order of the first seven days of His creation.

The Book would be Genesis: Chapter ONE, verses 1-31

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.

The FIRST DAY

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.

What I have learned of God:

  • He created the heaven & the earth
    • Earth was filled (deep?) with darkness, and without form, and void.
    • There was water.
  • The Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
  • God spoke into existence #light. He saw that light was good.
  • God divided the light from the darkness. 
  • God named the light #Day, and the darkness He named #Night.

Hence, it was God who created the heaven and the dark deep formless void of earth filled with deep waters upon which God’s Spirit moved? And before He could go on to that next step,

  • He had to get some light on earth; hence,
  • He spoke light into being of which He saw that it was good. Then,
    • God divided the light from the darkness, and named that light day, and the darkness He named night.

To get to the naming of Day, there had to be a separation of light from the darkness of the formless, void filled with deep waters upon which the Spirit of God moved on its face?

And the evening and the morning were the first day.

Awesome work! God. Might I ask that why question?

The SECOND DAY

And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. 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. And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.

  • REMEMBER: The first day here on earth God had to speak into existence Light, and divide that light from the darkness of which He named Light Day and Dark Night out of which came His first Day: and the evening and the morning were.
  • And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and
    • let it divide the waters from the waters.
    • 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.
  • God named the firmament Heaven.

And the evening and the morning were the second day.

  • God said, Let …
  • And God made …
  • and it was so.

Awesome second day of work! God. Might I ask that why question again?

The THIRD DAY

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. And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called He Sea: and God saw that it was god. And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good. And the evening and the morning were the third day.

  • And God said, Let …
  • and let the dry land appear:
  • and it was so.
  • And God named the dry land Earth;
  • and the gathering together of the waters called He Sea:
  • and God saw that it was good.
  • 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, after his kind:
    • and God saw that it was good.

And the evening and the morning were the third day.

The FOURTH DAY

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: And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. 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. And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

  • 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:
      • And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven
        • to give light upon the earth:
    • and it was so.
  • 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.
  • And God set them in the firmament of the heaven
    • to give light upon the earth, and
    • to divide the light from the darkness:
  • and God saw that it was good.

And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

The FIFTH DAY

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. 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. And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

  • 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.
  • 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 kind:
    • and God saw that it was good.
  • And God blessed them, saying,
    • Be fruitful, and multiply, and
      • fill the waters in the seas,
      • and let fowl multiply in the earth.

And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

REMEMBER all things God spoke into His creation: The waters brought forth in abundance the moving creature that hath life, and the fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.

  • God saw …
  • God blessed …
  • God said in his blessing, Be fruitful, and multiply …
    • and fill the waters in the seas,
    • and let the fowl multiply in the earth.

And there was the SIXTH DAY

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. 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.

Still on that SIXTH DAY after the beasts of the earth, cattle and every thing that creepeth; which was good as God saw came the

CREATION OF MAN:

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. So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. 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.

  • 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
      • and over all the earth, and 
      • over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
    • So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created he him;
      • male and female created he them.
    • 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.
  • God said, Let us …
    • in our image,
    • after our likeness:
  • So God created man in His own image,
    • in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
  • And God blessed them,
  • And God said unto them, …

And yet still on that SIXTH DAY, after all that God created; food was given:

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. 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. 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.

  • And God said,
    • 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.
      • 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.
  • 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.
