Everything is based on the Beginning


Genesis 2:1 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. 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. 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. 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, 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. 6 But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground. 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. 8 And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed. 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. 10 And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads. 11 The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold; 12 And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone. 13 And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia. 14 And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which goeth toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates. 15 And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. 16 And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: 17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

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. 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. 20 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him. 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; 22 And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. 23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. 24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. 25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

  1. Blessed Day

  2. The day He finished 1 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.

  3. The creation was not some long process that He is still working on

  4. It was done, finished, if you want to believe the Scriptures

  5. You will have to choose here. He says that He did it in six days and finished.

  6. He said your salvation was finished too! Which is true

  7. The day His work ended 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.

  8. He put it together. His work ended

  9. Another time in the second verse He reinforces that He did it and it stopped.

  10. The creation is not still continuing

  11. He said it ended

  12. The day He rested 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.

  13. Rest doesn’t mean he needs to rest like you do

  14. He rested as finished, ended, satisfied

  15. He stated that it was all good. He was pleased with His work

  16. Chapter 2 is not a different creation. Those who say this just look for a way to fit evolution into their scheme

  17. They trust science over the Word of God and try to accommodate

  18. From a Biblical point of view, God did it and He finished it!

  19. Your choice as always is to believe God or yourself and others

  20. The Bible is clear. There is no doubt about what it says

  21. You do not need to look for the da vinichi code here

  22. Take it as He clearly states it

  23. The Bible consistently says that God created it all in six days, and Genesis 2:2 says that on the seventh day He ceased His creative work. Genesis 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.

  24. He did not create evil, it was all good!

  25. Genesis 2 simply explains in more detail several things that God did in and through the creation

  26. There was another blessed day when He finished it all on Calvary

  27. There will be another blessed day when He comes to get us and take us home

  28. God gave man a job to do 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. 6 But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground. 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. 8 And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.

  29. Man was made to work

  30. There is dignity in work Ephesians 4:28 Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth.

  31. Work is not a result of sin

  32. Work was assigned before sin entered into the world

  33. You should work, teach your children to work, and take joy in your work I Thessalonians 4:11 And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you; 12 That ye may walk honestly toward them that are without, and that ye may have lack of nothing.
