Creation... The Way It Began.  The work of Creation By God is the absolute beginning of the temporal and material world. The biblical evidence declares that God created the original heaven and earth from nothing (Genesis 1:1,2), and specifically noted in verse 2 of Gen. 1, that when it was conceived by God, the mass was without form and void, and without life.


The remaining account of Genesis 1 simply explains the process of Creation in detail throughout six literal days. There is simply no implication in the Bible for the gap theory or any theory for that matter. Man and creation did not originate from something that was dead. We were created by God from nothing by virtue of His Word.

The Book of Genesis can be divided into two sections: 

  • I. The Beginning - Which covers: 

(1) Creation (Genesis chapters 1-2); 

(2) the Fall of man (Genesis chapters 3-5); 
(3) the Flood (Genesis chapters 6-9) 
(4) The Tower Of Babel (Genesis chapters 10-11). 

  • II.  The Believers - Genesis chronicles four great Believers: 

(1) Abraham (Genesis 12-25:8) 
(2) Isaac (Genesis 21:1-35-29) 
(3) Jacob (Genesis 25:21-50:14) 
(4) Joseph (Genesis 30:22-50:26).

  • Genesis Chapter One - Creation - A Matter Of Fact! 

I.  The Fact Of Creation - vs.1 ...God created... God's work of creation is literal and temporal and visible. 


II.  The Act of Creation - vs.2 ..Spirit of God moved... 
The Holy Spirit was not working with a chaotic condition... but the initial conception of creation. 

III. The Exact Of Creation - vs.3,31 
Day One - Creation Of Light - vs.3,5 
Day Two - Creation Of Space And Water - vs.6,8 
Day Three - Creation Of Seas, Land, and Vegetation - vs.9,13 
Day Four - Creation Of Heavenly Bodies - vs.14,19 
Day Five - Creation Of Fish And Fowls - vs.20,23 
Day Six - Creation Of Land Animals & People - vs.24,31

There is simply no implication in the Bible for the gap theory or any theory for that matter. Man and creation did not originate from something that was dead. We were created by the living God from nothing to something.
