In the beginning, God created the Heavens and the earth. Elohim (The Hebrew name for God) is the masculine plural of El. The name Elohim is unique to the Hebrew language. The trinity (Hashalush Hakadosh) of God is confirmed by the use of the name Elohim. At the time when He began to create the world in its present state, the firmament was in a state of being waste and wild . Something may have caused God to nullify a former act of creation; or it could refer to the initial state of utter formlessness.

In the beginning of time (which was made for the benefit of man), the Father, the son and the Holy Spirit (The One True and Living God) after much thought, consultation with Himself and planning, formed and created the heavens and the earth; and all that was in the multiplicity of the Universe. This was done by the process of saying to Himself; “let it be done”. So it was by the spoken word of the triune God that the world we know came into being.

This is the progression by which the earth was created and filled with all the wonderment that is in it. God said; let there be light, and there was light. God did not use His own light to illuminate the earth because the earth would not have had the darkness necessary for man to rest (the light of the Lord never dims or lessens). God was pleased with the light. And God divided the sky from the earth and He called the sky Heaven. This was the end of the first day of recorded time.

On the second day, God separated the firmament into the bodies of water and the land masses.

On the third day God created the vegetation on the earth; each having its own method of sustaining their own species.

It was on the forth day, for the purpose of separating the night and the day; He placed the sun, the moon and the stars in the sky.

On the fifth day, God created all the living things in the waters and the birds of all kinds. He was pleased with theses things and He blessed them.

On the sixth day, God created all of the wild animals and all of the domestic animals, as well as the snakes and reptiles.

God was pleased with His creation. And God said to Himself: let us create man in our image, so that he may have a body, a soul and a spirit. God created man both male and female so they could form a marriage and fill the earth with their offspring. Then God blessed the man and gave him all the fruits and plants for food and dominion over all the creatures of the earth. Since the Lords work was finished, in His creation of the Heavens and the earth, the sixth day was finished.

Since, by the end of the sixth day, the creation of the Lord was finished. On the seventh day He rested and decided it should be Holy because he was resting from all the creation He had made. And the Lord was pleased, and satisfied with His creation. This was the end of the first week in recorded history.

Time, distance, height, width, length, volume and weight were some of the things God created so that man could judge his place in the world created for him.

The Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the earth as yet. The Lord had caused a mist to come up from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.

As indicated above; the Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and the man became a living soul. And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and that is where He put the man whom he had formed. And the Lord placed everything into the garden the man would need, for his prosperity, except for one thing. The man was alone: with no one to help him and be his companion and lover; the completion of himself. So the Lord caused a deep sleep to come over the man whom He had named Adam. As Adam slept, the Lord removed one of his ribs and used it to form a woman and brought her to Adam. Adam was so pleased that he said, “This is bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh. I will call her woman, because she was taken out of man. From now on a man will leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they will be one flesh”. We can see from this that the first union of marriage was the precedent for future unions.

The world was now complete. The man and his wife were in the Garden, where they had everything they would ever need. God was pleased, man was pleased and everything was blessed by the Lord.
