Outgoing Creative Energy

Creation AnimalsAt the origins of the World, the Holy Spirit was "hovering" over the forming 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." Frank Derek Kidner (1913-2008) who was a British Old Testament scholar, best known for writing commentaries. He summarized the work of the Holy Spirit on creation in Genesis this way, "In the Old Testament, the Holy Spirit is a term for God's outgoing creative energy and sustaining."

Creation Jesus

Creation FirstbornGod's Son, Jesus, was himself also present with the Holy Spirit and the Heavenly Father at the initial formation of the all matter. This point in time has commonly come to be known as "the big bang." Scientists have 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 logic nor the physical laws we have discovered and set our clocks by. Genesis 1.1 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.
