Central Passage
Genesis 1:1, 3
"How It All Got Started", Msg. 2

The traditional view as to the authorship of the Pentateuch is that Moses, the great law giver, prophet, and judge, wrote the first five books of the Bible. If this is correct, they were written during the 40 years of wandering in the wilderness; the third period in the life of Moses.

Genesis records the beginnings. It sets forth several beginnings: the world, life, domestic relations, institutions, moral order, sin and consequences, God’s plan for man’s redemption, nations, and the beginning of the Messianic nation; in particular.

In some respects, Genesis is the most remarkable book of the Bible. It begins with the truth; that God is; that there is one God; and that He is the creator of the universe. Genesis teaches us that God made man and created him in His image. We are to be spiritual. Lastly, Genesis teaches us of the story of the human race and how it passes from a state of innocence into a state of sin.


Coming into existence means to begin to exist; to come to have actual being; and to cause something to start existing.

Most people desire good, however, they lack the knowledge as to how to bring good about. With everything, God said it and willed it to be produced. God established the universe. He established the law. God did everything himself; with no help from man or nature. He needs no secondary help. He simply speaks and it comes into existence. God's Word alone contains all that is necessary for the fulfillment of His will.

God said, "Let there be..." The determined will of God, in every instance, was followed by an immediate results! He created that which had no previous existence. He did not owe nature anything! He is omnipotent. He does whatever He wills, as soon as He pleases and His orders are always obeyed. God speaks and it is done. He commands, and it stands fast.

Though man cannot speak creation into existence, God gave His power to His Son, Jesus. A great deal of people do not believe they, too, have power to speak things into existence. We get power when we allow Christ to come on the inside. We get power when we accept Him as our personal savior. God's commands are not temporary, but are eternal. Matthew 28:18-20 says, "All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth." That means in our marriages, our jobs, relationships with others, and our children. And He will be with you to the ends of the world. This scripture says, "Go ye therefore teachings all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world."

So when things get rough, have no fear. Trust in Him and call on Him. God gives you the power to stand up and say, “Peace be still.”
