ASV notes on the beginning and day one, the light and Gods name, Genesis 1:1-5, commented by ASV and questions

שלום חברי רוח הקודש

God’s name

There is only one God, And His name is YHWH, and some scholars state that at the time of Moses the only vowel that existed in the Hebrew alphabet was an a the name of God would then be YaHaWaH (JAHAUA), and He is the only God and He always works together with His son, and His spirit. However, because there are no vowels in the Hebrew alphabet, and we have no sounds of course from the time of Moses, the correct pronunciation of the name of God with certainty is not possible to know. However, in contrast to the LORD being used as the name of God, I am going to use the Hebrew name YHWH as the name of God instead of “the LORD” which is not a name but a title. In the Hebrew original text we find YHWH as the name of God 5000 times in The Old Testament.

Elohim

Moses wrote the first five books of the Bible, ad here in the first verse, Moses uses the word Elohim for God, it is plural suggesting that all three, the Father, the Son and The Holy Spirit, did the creation. Elohim is not necessarily the only God, but in this case, it is, spelling Elohim with the capital letter E. However, generally elohim expresses what governs, if money governs our life, money is our elohim. For the only God we could title Him as this YHWH Elohim which is JAHAUA God.

The beginning

God created from nothing the heavens and the earth, first it was just a hunk of raw material, deep water, and the darkness was cowering it all as a veil. Nothing could be seen, however God and the Word were there, and the Spirit was hovering over the waters. Then God started it all by creating the light, so all His armies of angles could witness the creation. The light lit it all up and they witnessed what was going on.

The Word

God used His Words, which is Jesus, to create everything (John 1:1-3, Hebrews 1:2, and 11:3), that’s why God created by saying: “Let there be light”. now God could see and examine the light, and God saw that it did what it was supposed to do and concluded, it was good.

No moon, no sun, and no stars

Before the light came, the darkness ruled, but when the light came God made it rule both the day and the night. Then there was evening and morning the first day. The darkness was there, the light had been created, the evening and the morning became reality and we had the first day. God created the light, the night, and the day, however at that point in creation the sun, moon, and the stars did not exist. The light, the day and night do not depend on the sun going down and coming up. 
Our feeling of time is linked to the sun going up and down, in fact, the sun is not going up and down, it is standing still, not moving at all. 

What you cannot see

The earth is spinning around itself in one day and circling around the sun in one year. This spinning and moving of the earth are giving us the timing of days, weeks, months, springtime, summer, autumn, and winter. All timing God created without the sun; God does not need anything physical to make things work. It is the other way around, all the physical need the none-physical to be created and function. What we cannot see makes what we can see (Hebrews 11:3).

Christ in you

If you want reality in your life, you need what you cannot see, touch or sense. Everything good, everything prosperous every hope of good times comes from the invisible God, his name is YHWH and His Son is Christ, the stunning secret is that you can make Jesus move inside of you, you can have the invisible that makes the visible in you, that is the secret of the kingdom of heaven, “Christ in you” see Colossians 1:27 kjv version

Questions

  • Why do we have names?
  • Why did the Spirit hover above the water?
  • Where does the light come from?
  • Where does all the timing come from, days, months and so on?
