This is the very first verse of the King James bible, and without doubt, many professionals have declared it to be the most important message that will ever come into the minds of men. It always poses the question; (Do you believe it?) A hasty decision will make it appear ridiculous; but do not turn from it. Give it serious consideration because if you can not believe that; the bible will never mean what God intended it to do. You might as well throw it away because if you cannot believe the beginning, you will not believe the rest as you should. If all the books that have been written by men were in a great pile, it would create a mountain of great size; but all the information that could be found in that tremendous gathering of books would not equal the information that can be found in the bible to give the wisdom for all the decisions people need to live this flesh like God wants it be lived.
Again consider the beginning: do you believe God had the power to create the Heaven and the earth and all that in them is? And did He just speak them into existence? Can you believe God was before the beginning and will be after the ending? And that He alone is God and there is none other? God actually said that of Himself and it appears so many times in the Bible that it would be too lengthy to list. I will mention a few: please read them from your Bible. ISAIAH 42:8 + ISAIAH 43:11 +ISAIAH 44:6 + ISAIAH 45:5 + ISAIAH 21-22 + Read ISAIAH 45:12, (God spoke He made the would and Heaven + ISAIAH 45:6 + ISAIAH 46:9. It can also be found in the Old Testament where God said, "for I am God and there is none other." Now we realize there are millions of people who are not believing and worshiping God as the only God in existence. That will not bother you if you know there is none other that can say they created a Heaven and a world. None ever have, and God states He created this world and it is His alone. God loves this world and the people He has permitted to live in it so much, He sent His only begotten Son to be a perfect pattern and example to show how He wants this temporary life to be lived. God could have found thousands of virgins to produce other sons for Him, but Jesus was perfect and all He needed to show how He wanted people to live. Therefore Jesus is called His only begotten Son. And the life Jesus lived while on earth should be our example and pattern to live this temporary life on earth.
Here is another important question: How many will give time and consideration to seriously think how the vast majority of people in today's sinful world should visualize God as the ALMIGHTY and He really does have the power to create this world with a Heaven above? Also, are we making an honest effort to use Jesus as our pattern and example how to live this temporary life to gain the victory of an eternal life that is promised when this life ends? It is easy, if you pause long enough to think wisely. Please do.
"In the beginning God created the Heaven and the earth."
