Notes: Nice way to begin – cut through the miniscule detailing which tend to mislead and misdirect from the real message.
“In the beginning God” Exactly.
“… created the heavens and the earth. And the earth was without form and void” No gravity? And without gravity no direction.
“And the Spirit of God moved” To me this always represented the very beginning of time as we know it. God moved. God is everywhere, why would he need to “move”? So His transition from point A to Point B through space implies not only space itself but the time to traverse, hence the start of the universe clock.
“…upon the face of the waters.” As the single electron moves across the face of the single proton in the Hydrogen atom, the very basis of structure. Movement = time = gravity = the Spirit of God binding the universe together by simple moving.
The Word was with God and the Word was God. Word
The majesty of nature, created by God, reflecting His Spirit. If nature more closely reflected God, could we as humans survive its beauty? Is this why we must for now view everything “through a glass, darkly”?
