CREATION – Day 1 and 2

week-of-creation Genesis 1

The Book of Genesis – It all began with God

Genesis 1:1-8

Genesis is a very old book and many believe that Moses was the author. He wanted to write everything that the Holy Spirit told him to write so that we would always know what had happened since the beginning of the world and what God did for us because He loves us so much. 

Did you know that God created the whole universe in just six days? Can you imagine the power it took to create so much in such a short time?  

Let’s start and see what the Bible teaches us about creation. 

Chapter 1 

Describes how God created a perfect world. Everything that God made was perfect. God examined His own work. And He saw that it was good.

 v1 In the beginning, God created the skies and the earth.

God has always existed. And He will always exist. There has never been a time before God, and there will never be a time after God.  

God ‘created’. The word ‘create’ means to make something from nothing. Only God makes something from nothing.

In the beginning the earth was dark and empty. And then God created light. He just gave a command, and the heaven and earth appeared. 

Then He gave another command, and the light appeared.  

He divided the light from the darkness to make day and night.  

v2 The earth had no shape and it was empty. Everything was dark, and God’s Spirit moved gently over the waters.

Here we see where God started His work. 

v3 And God said, ‘Let there be light.’ And then there was light.

The words that God speaks are powerful. So when God ordered something to happen, that is what happened immediately. 

v4 And God saw that the light was good. God separated light from darkness.

He did that, so that we would have day and night. Everything that God does is good. 

v5 He named the light ‘day’ and he named the darkness ‘night’. There was evening and there was morning. That was the first day.

Can you just imagine what God accomplished in one day? That was the very first day ever in the whole entire world.

On the second day, God formed the earth’s sky and He gave our planet the air we breathe. He also separated the water that was on the earth from the clouds in the sky. 

God had a plan and He knew that the animals and the people He would create on earth would need air to breathe, so He crated oxygen for our planet. 

He also knew that we would be thirsty, so He created water for us to drink.  

Everything God did was perfect. 

Creation-ER-2

v6 And God said, ‘Let there be an area to divide the waters into two parts.’

Here we see where God is separating the water that comes from the sky in the form of rain from the waters that are one earth like the ocean. 

002-creation

v7 So then there was water above in one area and there was water underneath it; it was exactly as God said.

Again, we see where God had all His plans in place for how He wanted the earth to be.  

v8 God called one area ‘the sky’. And there was evening and there was morning. That was the second day.

God accomplished a lot on the first day and had now completed many more things on the second day.

Goodbye for now, until next time; when we will learn what God created on the third and fourth day.  

Until then, remember to say your prayers obey your mom and dad and do not forget to go to church and Sunday school next week.
