SEPARATING THE SPIRITUAL FROM THE PHYSICAL
THE HIDDEN MEANING
In my continuous efforts in finding what I truly believe inspired me, led me to the Story of Creation with this quote, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.” Genesis 1:1-2 NKJV
DARKNESS – A biblical image of immoral behavior and wrongdoing. Jeremiah 4:18-26 NIV
Isaiah 45:18-19 – The LORD created the heavens – He is the One who is God! He formed and made the earth – He made it firm and lasting. He did not make it a desolate waste, but a place for people to live. It is He who says, “I am the LORD, and there is no other god. I have not spoken in secret or kept my purpose hidden. I did not require the people of Israel to look for me in a desolate waste. I am the LORD, and I speak the truth; I make known what is right.” GNT
What is Bad and False – I use to think that Geness 1:1-2 portrayed an single act of God, overlooking the obvious disastrous effects of immoral behavior on God’s creation, and that God renewed what was in this state of confusion or disorder. These two separate acts of God, I believe provides an overview of the Unfaithful and their immoral ways as a symbol of Darkness.
