Genesis 1:1 - Back to the Very Beginning

The very first verse in the first chapter of the Bible contains a miraculous and majestic proclamation that should strike us with deep awe - that this world and all its inhabitants have a MAKER. 

How did everything come into existence? It is not by coincidence, but God created it.  In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. (Genesis 1:1)

This points to a very important fact. 
—> We are NOT orphans. This means we have a Father. There is someone who brought us into being. Therefore, He always looks over us, guides us, and protects us. It is very important to believe and accept the fact that we are here because of a Creator. 

The Bible teaches Creation, which is the beginning of all things, and it also explains the end of all things. 

When we know the beginning clearly, we can find our way back even if we get off track. 

Scripture tells us that God was pleased with His creation, especially after creating mankind. God saw all that He had made, and it was very good. Genesis 1:31

From the beginning, humans were created in the image of God. They were pure and beautiful. Regretfully, humanity lost that image through disobedience and subsequently wrote a long history of sin - hatred, jealousy, pride, greed, weapons, wars, etc. 

The good news is that there will certainly be an END to this sinful history.

We know that God is always the same and never changed throughout history.

Revelation 22:13 says God is the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.

Therefore, we can know that in the End of time, much will be like the Beginning.
—> Creation will be restored, back to the image that once pleased God very much. 

In the fullness of time, this world will be reclaimed from Satan back to its original Maker and His people will live peacefully in a restored kingdom with Jesus as their King. 

Let us praise our heavenly Father, the Maker of heaven and earth, who is ever so faithful!
