Notes


We have identified and studied parts of Scripture referring to the word ‘revelation’. We have looked in the Bible for passages which speak of the Saviour of the world, reflecting on the amazing plan of salvation embodied in Jesus the Christ. We now turn to the word “God” as it appears in the King James Version.

The earth was a dark nothingness, with God's Spirit hovered above the watery abyss, until God spoke light into existence and separated the light from the darkness.

God also spoke the sky into existence, separating the water above from the water below. He ordered the water beneath the sky to gather into one place, the ocean, so that land appeared. At God’s command, the land grew all varieties of seed-bearing plants, and every sort of fruit-bearing tree. God made the sun, moon and stars and placed them in the sky. He made fish and birds, telling them to multiply.

God made the animals, reptiles and insects, and man and woman. He gave man and woman seed-bearing plants and fruit-bearing trees as food. He was very pleased with everything He had done. The heavens and the earth, and all that filled them, were finished! God had done all this in six days, six evening and mornings, Sunday through to Friday.

Now it was Saturday, the seventh day. God blessed the seventh day of creation week, the seventh evening and morning of the world. He made it a holy day, a sabbath, because on that day He rested from all the creating He had done. 

After God had made Adam, the first man, He had planted a garden in Eden. And He put Adam there to work the ground and keep everything in order. In the middle of the garden was the Tree of Life and the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. The man was given a simple test of obedience to his Creator: God told him he could eat from all the trees in the garden, except from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. He would die if he ate from that tree.

From Adam’s rib God had made Adam a helper, Eve, as his companion. Now the serpent, the most clever of all the animals that God had made, spoke to the woman, implying God didn't want the couple to eat the fruit from the forbidden tree as it would make them wise. She eventually fell for the temptation, taking and eating the forbidden fruit, and giving some to Adam.

Later when they heard God strolling in the garden, they tried to hide from Him in the trees, conscious of their sin and their nakedness. Gone was their innocence, the righteousness of Christ, which had been their garment of light. So God made leather clothing for them. Adam blamed the woman God had given him. Eve blamed the snake who had seduced her. God cursed the snake. He would slink on his belly and eat dirt all his life. And He expelled Adam and Eve from the garden in Eden, to prevent them from eating fruit from the tree of life.

Adam and Eve lived off the land and started a family. Time passed and children grew. Tragically their son Cain gave in to jealousy and murdered his brother Abel. The parents mourned deeply over the loss of their child, this first human death. But time passed and Eve had another son, calling him Seth. Enoch, a descendant of Seth, lived in marked contrast to Cain. Enoch ‘walked with God’, being in habitual fellowship with Him for 300 years. God loved Enoch and took him to live with Him in Heaven, so that Enoch never tasted death.

But a polarisation was slowly growing between good people and evil people. When godly men began to marry the beautiful daughters of the wrong doers, their children were giants of men, celebrities of the time. In God's eyes the earth was depraved and decayed, and filled with all kinds of brutality. People had lost their true direction and thought evil continually. But within this wicked world there was a just and righteous man, Noah, who was in constant fellowship with God. God told Noah that He wanted to make an end of all flesh. He had decided He was going to flood the earth to destroy every living thing under the heavens.

A polarisation was growing between good and evil people. And godly men began to marry the beautiful daughters of the wrong doers. Out of these unions came giants of men, celebrities of the time. But the earth was depraved and decayed in God's sight, filled with all kinds of brutality. People had lost their true direction and thought evil continually. Within this wicked world however there was a just and righteous man, Noah, who was in constant fellowship with God. God told Noah that He wanted to make an end of all flesh. He had decided He was going to flood the earth to destroy every living thing under the heavens.

God instructed Noah to make a waterproofed ark with compartments. Noah did everything God commanded him to do and took two of every sort of animal, bird and creeping thing, male and female, into the ark with him and his family. After the flood, God instructed Noah to come out with the whole menagerie of birds and mammals and crawling creatures. They were to prosper and replenish the earth. God made an everlasting covenant with Noah and his descendants, promising that never again would a flood destroy the earth. He put a rainbow in the clouds as a sign of this covenant between Him and the earth. Whenever we see a rainbow in the sky after a rain shower, or even above the garden sprinkler, it can remind us too of God’s pledge to us and all living things.


| Genesis.1-13 | Genesis.14-30 | Genesis.31-50 | Notes |

In the beginning God created

Gen.1.1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
Gen.1.2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
Gen.1.3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
Gen.1.4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
Gen.1.5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

 

Let there be

Gen.1.6 And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.
Gen.1.7 And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.
Gen.1.8 And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.

Gen.1.9 And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.
Gen.1.10 And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.

God saw that it was good

Gen.1.11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.

Gen.1.12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

Let the earth bring forth grass

 

Gen.1.14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:
Gen.1.16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.

Gen.1.17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,
Gen.1.18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.

Let us make man in our image

 

Gen.1.26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
Gen.1.27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
Gen.1.28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
Gen.1.29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
Gen.1.31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

Let us make man in our image

Gen.1.26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
Gen.1.27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
Gen.1.28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

Gen.1.29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
Gen.1.31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

He rested on the seventh day

Gen.2.2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
Gen.2.3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.

Gen.2.4 These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens,
Gen.2.5 And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.

The LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground

Gen.2.7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

Gen.2.8 And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.
Gen.2.9 And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground

And put him into the garden of Eden to dress it

Gen.2.15 And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.
Gen.2.16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:

  and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it

It is not good that the man should be alone

Gen.2.18 And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.
Gen.2.19 And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.

Gen.2.21 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;
Gen.2.22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.

Yea, hath God said

Gen.3.1 Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
Gen.3.3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.

Gen.3.5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

The LORD God walking in the garden

 

Gen.3.8 And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.
Gen.3.9 And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?

the LORD God walking in the garden

Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed

Gen.3.13 And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.

Gen.3.14 And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:
Gen.3.21 Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them.
Gen.3.22 And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:
Gen.3.23 Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.

The wickedness of man was great in the earth

Gen.4.25 And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew.
Gen.5.1 This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him;
Gen.5.22 And Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three hundred years, and begat sons and daughters:
Gen.5.24 And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.
Gen.6.2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.

Gen.6.5 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

Noah walked with God

Gen.6.9 These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.
Gen.6.11 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.

Gen.6.13 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.

There went in two and two

 

Gen.6.22 Thus did Noah; according to all that God commanded him, so did he.
Gen.7.9 There went in two and two unto Noah into the ark, the male and the female, as God had commanded Noah.

There went in two and two

Gen.9.16 And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth.
