The 1st Adam in the Hebrew Scriptures #1 Beginning of everything

Thousands of years ago there was a void, but there also was the Eternal Being that ever was and always shall be, having had no birth and never having an end or not able to die. That divine Eternal Being “That is” or “I Am“, the “I Am Who Am” or the “I Am Who Is” has a Voice and that Voice spoke in the darkness and when it spoke that what it expressed came into being. In this way That Spiritual Being “The I Am that I Am” took care that things came into being. Every time This I am that I am Ehyeh-Asher-Ehyeh אהיה אשר אהיה saw it was alright and when it was good The Cause of Being brought an other thing into existence. Every time The Being “That Is” spoke Its Word became a reality. The incorruptible Word spoken brought into existence.

It was God’s Power (the Holy Spirit) that brought things to life. It was God His Word which was spoken, brought into reality and was there to stay for ever in truth, never telling lies. As such later in history the carnal beings created by that Most High Eternal Being received in their hands the greatest source of the greatest ideas known to man. First the Word went from one being to an other vocally, but later it became recorded on stone plates, than on papyrus and parchment roles. First those words of the Most High were notated in Hebrew, than Aramaic words and Greek words supplemented the documents written down in the name of God by set apart (holy) men.  This way man got the Scriptures, and for this series on the new or 2nd Adam we shall also look into the wisdom of the theological minds who brought forth the 1599 Geneva Bible Patriot’s Edition, which will enable you to think God’s thoughts after Him because the Bible is His special revelation. Herewith is a resource that you are sure to find indispensable for the study and interpretation of creation as God would have you see it.

The Geneva Bible once changed the world. With that Bible man can hold in their hands something that is about to change the world — again. For those who find that bible we ask them to use this Bible with care. Use it faithfully with faith. Then watch God once more do above and beyond all that we can ask or imagine.

To come to know why Jesus is so important for us and to come to see who he is and what purpose he served, we have to go back to the beginning of everything. We have to listen to the Word which sounded in the void.

In Genesis chapter one we are told how everything started and that first of all, and before that any creature was, God made heaven and earth of nothing.

Genesis 1

1 God created the heaven and the earth. 3 The light
and the darkness, 8 The firmament, 9 He separateth
the water from the earth. 16 He createth the sun, the moon,
and the stars. 21 He createth the fish, birds, beasts, 26 He
createth man, and giveth him rule over all creatures, 29 And
provideth nurture for man and beast.

1 In the 1beginning aGod created the heaven and the earth.
2 And the earth was 1,2without form and void, and 3darkness was upon the 4deep, and the Spirit of God 5moved upon the 6waters.
3 Then God said, bLet there be light: And there was 1light.
4 And God saw the light that it was good, and God separated 1the light from the darkness.
5 And God called the Light, Day, and the darkness he called Night. 1So the evening and the morning
were the first day.

Next we come to hear that it is the only power of God’s Word, His speaking, that makes the earth fruitful, which else naturally is barren. In Scriptures also more than once shall it be repeated that God made all His creatures to serve to His glory and God wanting to see that all is good, but that in the world there is seed, the matter that brings forth new matter, good or bad, depending on how the seed is and where the seed lands, in what sort of soil.

9  God said again, eLet the waters under the heaven be gathered into one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.
10 And God called the dry land, Earth, and he called the gathering together of the waters, Seas: and God saw that it was good.
11 Then God said, 1Let the earth bud forth the bud of the herb, that seedeth seed, the fruitful tree, which beareth fruit according to his kind, which hath his seed in itself upon the earth: and it was so.
12 And the earth brought forth the bud of the herb, that seedeth seed according to his kind, also the tree that beareth fruit, which hath his seed in itself according to his kind: and God 1saw that it was good.

Too many christians do forget that the Bible also tells us clearly that there were animals and plants before man.

20 Afterward God said, Let the waters bring forth in abundance every 1creeping thing that hath 2life: and let the fowl fly upon the earth in the 3open firmament of the heaven.
21 Then God created the great whales, and everything living and moving, which the 1waters brought forth in abundance according to their kind, and every feathered fowl according to his kind: and God saw that it was good.
22 Then God 1blessed them, saying, Bring forth fruit and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let the fowl multiply in the earth.
23 So the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

Only after all the planets, waters and earth, creeping beings it became time for an other creeping being of flesh and blood, in a system where there would be light and darkness as instruments appointed to serve to man’s use.

Every time God spoke, the “soul of life” came into the beings (Hebrew for the “living thing” verse 24).

24  Moreover God said, Let the earth bring forth the 1living thing according to his kind, cattle, and that which creepeth, and the beast of the earth according to his kind, and it was so.
25 And God made the beast of the earth according to his kind, and the cattle according to his kind, and every creeping thing of the earth according to his kind: and God saw that it was good.

It was only after God had commanded the water and the earth to bring forth other creatures, that He said of man “Let us make”, signifying, that He the Most Highest, Who speaks with the ‘Royal We’ (Royal plural or Pluralis majestatis), God

“taketh counsel with his wisdom and virtue, purposing to make an excellent work above all the rest of his creation.” (1599 Geneva Patriot’s Edition)

26 Furthermore God said, h,1Let us make man in our 2image according to our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the heaven, and over the beasts, and over all the earth, and over everything that creepeth and moveth on the earth.
27 Thus God created the man in his image: in the image of God created he him: he created them imale and female.
28 And God 1blessed them, and God said to them, jBring forth fruit, and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it, and rule over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the heaven, and over every beast that moveth upon the earth.
29 And God said, Behold, I have given unto you 1every herb bearing seed, which is upon all the earth, and every tree, wherein is the fruit of a tree bearing seed: kthat shall be to you for meat.
30 Likewise to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the heaven, and to everything that moveth
upon the earth, which hath life in itself, every green herb shall be for meat, and it was so.
31 lAnd God saw all that he had made, and lo, it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
