BIBLE CHARACTERS

GOD THE FATHER

LESSON 5

Gen 1:2           “…And the Spirit of God moved…"

Comment        Always the Spirit of God moves in the earth and in the lives of His children before He speaks.  His Spirit moved upon us to draw us to His Son, then He spake unto us the salvation message.  In Noah’s day, God said, “My Spirit will not always strive with man.”

 

Gen 1:3           “…Let there be light…"

Comment        Satan had blinded our eyes until the light of the glorious Gospel did shine in unto us.  Darkness is upon all mankind in the earth, but God the Father is still calling - Come to the Light (Jesus).

 

Gen 1:4           “…God divided the light from the darkness.”

Comment        The children of the Day are the children of God.  The children of the Night are the children of the world.  God cries out to His children, “…Come out from among them and be ye separate saith the Lord…and I will receive you!” (2 Cor 6:17)

 

Gen 1:5           "God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night."

 

Gen 1:6           "...Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters."

 

Gen 1:8           "And God called the firmament Heaven.”

Comment        As the Heavens declare God’s handiwork, man has been trying to go there by his own means ever since.

                        - Example:  Tower of Babel; Expeditions to the Moon; Satellites to the Stars

                        But the Lord has said, “…Not by might (of man), nor by power (of man), but by my Spirit saith the Lord of Hosts.” (Zec 4:6)

 

John 3:3          "…Except a man be born again (of the Spirit), he cannot see the Kingdom of God.”

 

Gen 1:9           "…Let the dry land appear…”

 

Gen 1:10         "And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called He Seas:…”

Comment        As most of the world is covered by water the dry land is there for us to see, enjoy, and live.  God has set boundaries for the Seas that they cannot pass over no matter how violent the storms.

 

Gen 2:1           “Thus the Heavens and the Earth were finished, and all the host of them.”  (Or living creation.)  Amen.

 

Summary        How beautiful to look at the creation and understand more about our Father.

                        Can you think of any other things that are revealed about our Heavenly Father?

                        Eg. Jesus is called the Light of the World (John 9:5). The Gospel of Christ is referred to as light (2Cor 4:4). Isaiah prophesied that darkness would cover the earth and gross darkness the people. (Isaiah 60:2)
