I want to close these first few blog articles on Genesis 1:1-2 with these final words and comfort from the very Word of God. I see two noticeably clear warnings from the pages of Scripture followed by a very encouraging reality for the Christian.
The Spirit is the very wind that we cannot catch, while at the same time, He is that ever-present reality giving us the calming order even in our chaotic sinful lives. Since these opening days of creation, the Spirit has always brought order and structure to all that has been created.
I said in a previous blog article we would come back to this word Moses uses here for God, and in the original language of Genesis, this one word is in the plural. Many people have read much into this, and some have not read enough into this occurrence, this word “Elohim”.
