In January of 2014 I released my first Bible commentary "Discovering The Shepherd: A Study of Psalm 23." I knew then that one of my greatest passions was to acquaint believers and even non-believers with a deeper understanding of the Bible, the living Word of God. Recently I began working on my next commentary - a look at Genesis 1 and the story of creation. What I discovered was fascinating and rather than delaying the sharing of this information until the manuscript is complete, I decided to share the chapters as I write.
Below is chapter 1, a look at the the 2nd half of verse 2 (Pt. 1). Read previous posts through the links below:

Genesis 1, Verse 2 (Pt. 2)
“The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.”
Again, we encounter a prophetic look into the redemption of mankind. Though the presence of darkness would invade the amazing beauty of God’s creation, the Spirit of God (wisdom) would look upon mankind with great love and send the Son – His only begotten Son – as the redeemer. It would be the face of Jesus (Yeshua) that would blot out the face of evil upon the earth. What we encounter here is the omniscience of Elohim at work as all three persons work in cooperation on behalf of mankind.
