Genesis 1:1-5 First Seven Days-Day 1 Tree of Life

Parashat Bereshit

Genesis 1:1-5 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

Now the earth was chaos and waste, darkness was on the surface of the deep, and the Ruach Elohim was hovering upon the surface of the water.

Then God said, “Let there be light!” and there was light

God saw that the light was good. So God distinguished the light from the darkness,

God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” So there was evening and there was morning–one day.

The Word Becomes Flesh

John 1:1-5 In the beginning was the Word. The Word was with God, and the Word was God.

He was with God in the beginning.

All things were made through Him, and apart from Him nothing was made that has come into being.

In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overpowered it.

John 1:14-18 And the Word became flesh and tabernacled among us. We looked upon His glory, the glory of the one and only from the Father, full of grace and truth.

John testifies about Him, He cried out, saying, “This is He of whom I said, ‘The One who comes after me is above me, because He existed before me,'”

Out of His fullness, we have all received grace on top of grace.

Torah was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Yeshua the Messiah.

No one has ever seen God; but the one and only God, in the Father’s embrace, has made Him known.

John 10:30 I and the Father are one.”

John 3:13-21 No one has gone up into heaven except the One who came down from heaven–the Son of Man.

Just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the desert, so the Son of Man must be lifted up,

so that whoever believes in Him may have eternal life!

“For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.

God did not send the Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through Him.

The one who believes in Him is not condemned; but whoever does not believe has been condemned already, because he has not put his trust in the name of the one and only Ben-Elohim.

“Now this is the judgment, that the light has come into the world and men loved the darkness instead of the light, because their deeds were evil.

For everyone who does evil hates the light and does not come to the light, so that heir deeds will not be exposed,

But whoever practices the truth comes to the light, so that it may be made known that his deeds have been accomplished in God.”

Ben-Elohim is Supreme

Colossians 1:15-18 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation.

For by Him all things were created–in heaven and on earth, the seen and the unseen, whether thrones or angelic powers or rulers or authorities. All was created though Him and for Him.

he exists before everything, and in Him all holds together.

He is the head of the body, His community. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead–so that He might come to have first place in all things.

1 John 5:11-13 And the testimony is this–that God gave us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.

The one who has the Son has life; the one who does not have Ben-Elohim does not have life.

Walk Now in Eternal Privileges

I wrote these things to you who believe in the name of Ben-Elohim, so you may know that you have eternal life.

Genesis 1:14 Then God said, “Let lights in the expanse of the sky be for separating the day from the night. They will be for signs and for seasons and for days and years.

2 Corinthians 4:5-6 For we do not proclaim ourselves, but Messiah Yeshua as Lord–and ourselves as your slaves for Yeshua’s sake.

For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” is the One who has shone in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Messiah.

Revelation 22:1-5 Then the angel showed me a river of the water of life–bright as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb

down the middle of the city’s street. On either side of the river was a tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit each month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

No longer will there be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in the city, and His servants shall serve Him.

They shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads.

Night shall be no more, and people will have no need for lamplight or sunlight– for Adonai Elohim will shine on them. And they shall reign forever and ever!
