INTRODUCTION. The Bible is the revelation of God's eternal plan. Genesis is the book of beginnings-the beginning of the universe, the beginning of measured time, the beginning of man, the beginning of the home, the beginning of sin, and the beginning of hope for the salvation of mankind.
"In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said ... " (Gen. 1:1-3).
In these three verses, the three eternal beings are present and each has a role in the
creation of the world.
God the Father: "In the beginning God'' - God purposed and planned
God the Spirit: "And the Spirit of God'' - the Spirit hovered over the waters
God the Son (the Word): "And God said'' - Jesus Christ, the Word of God, created all things (John 1:1-3; Col. 1:16)
These separate beings are one in purpose, one in work, and one in righteousness (John
10:30, 37-38; I Cor. 2:10; Eph. 4:4-6).
