August 27, 2015 – Genesis 1:1-5

Genesis1-1-5God created the sky and the earth. At first, the earth was completely empty. There was nothing on the earth. Darkness covered the ocean, and God’s Spirit moved over the water. Then God said, “Let there be light!” And light began to shine. He saw the light, and he knew that it was good. Then he separated the light from the darkness. God named the light “day,” and he named the darkness “night.” There was evening, and then there was morning. This was the first day. Genesis 1:1-5Look at all the trees and the flowers, the oceans and the mountains.  Look at the whales and the elephants, the cows and the deer. The eagles and the countless birds flying through the air.  Everything, Everything was made by God.  Six days, yes, He created the day and the night, he planned and worked. When he looked at everything He made and saw it was very good.Everything we make is made out of what God created out of nothing.  He spoke the stars, the moon, the sun, the planets and the earth into being.  Can you speak a paper airplane into being?  What order did God create the world by the day.First Day – God spoke Light into being and separated Light and Dark.  He called it Day and Night.  Second Day – God spoke the separation between the Waters of the Earth and Heavens.  Third Day –  God said for the waters to go in one place and land appeared.  Then God said may there be trees and plants of every kind.  Seed bearing plants then produced the same plants. Fourth Day – God said for there to be light in the sky at night. The greatest light, the sun, ruled the day.  The lesser light, the moon, ruled the night.  Fifth Day – God said for every fish of the sea to appear and birds to fill the sky.  Sixth Day – God said for every kind of animal to appear.  Wild animals, live stock, small animals all appeared. Then God said, Let us make man in our image who will rule over the animals on earth and fish of the sea and the birds of the sky. Seventh Day –  God rested and said, the Seventh Day is holy for He rested from all his work of creation.God looked at everything he had made. And he saw that everything was very good. There was evening, and then there was morning. This was the sixth day. Genesis 1:31
