Holy Spirit Creation

Outgoing Creative Energy

Starry Sky in CreationAt the origins of the World, the Holy Spirit was "hovering" over the Creation. 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 the work of the Holy Spirit creation in this way, "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, Jesus, was himself also present with the Holy Spirit at the initial formation of the all matter. This point in time has commonly come to be known as "the big bang". Scientists postulated that this all took place in a fraction of a second though I find it hard to perceive moons, planets and suns being flung across the universe almost instantaneously. It defies logic but there again God is not bound by the physical laws we have discovered and set our clocks to. Genesis 1.1 further explained creation as six "days of creation." We should note here that the word for "Days" may be translated as "eons." An "Eon" is defined in geology as "a major division of geological time, subdivided into eras." Saint Paul wrote 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." Jesus had an vital role in the Creation itself.✞
