Outgoing Creative Energy

Starry Sky in CreationAt the origins of the World at the Creation itself, the Holy Spirit was "hovering" over it. We read in Genesis 1.2, "Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters." Derek Kidner in his commentary on Genesis summarized, "In the Old Testament, the Holy Spirit is a term for God's outgoing creative energy and sustaining."

Jesus at Creation

Firstborn of all CreationGod's Son was also present with the Holy Spirit at the initial origins of the Creation This has commonly come to be known as "the big bang". Scientists postulate that this took place in a fraction of a second, though Genesis 1.1 explains it as the beginning of six "days of creation." The word for "Days" may also be translated as "eons." An "Eon" is defined in geology as "a major division of geological time, subdivided into eras." Saint Paul writes in Colossians 1.15-16, "The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him."
