BEFORE ANYTHING WAS CREATED, ONLY GOD EXISTED
* Genesis 1:1 - "In the beginning God...."
* 1 John 1:5 - "This then is the message which we have heard of Him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all."
SO GOD CREATED DARKNESS BEFORE HE CREATED LIGHT
* Genesis 1:2-3 - "And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light."
GOD CREATED A PLACE FOR HIS CREATED THINGS
* Genesis 1:1-5 - God created heaven (the Universe) and the earth on day one.
* Genesis 1:6-8 - God separated the waters to make heaven (Earth's atmosphere) on day two.
* Genesis 1:9-13 - God separated the land from the waters on day three.
THEN GOD CREATED THINGS TO INHABIT EACH PLACE
* Genesis 1:14-19 - God created the Sun, the Moon, and the Stars to be in the Universe on day four.
* Genesis 1:20-23 - God created flying things to inhabit the atmosphere, and sea creatures to inhabit the seas.
* Genesis 1:24-31 - God created land animals, and then He created man on day six.
JESUS IS GOD, THE CREATOR
* John 1:1, 3, 14 - "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God....All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made....And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth." [See also: Col. 1:16-17; Heb. 1:1-2]
JESUS PROVIDED A WAY FOR BELIEVERS
TO GET TO A PLACE PREPARED FOR THEM
* John 14:1-3, 6 - "Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto Myself; that where I am, there ye may be also....Jesus saith unto him, I am The Way, The Truth, and The Life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me."
JESUS DIED SO THAT YOU AND I CAN HAVE ETERNAL LIFE!
