  1. Day 1 of My 31 Day Scripture Writing Plan for January 2016
    Genesis 1:1 – 2

    While reading the words “And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters” I was immediately reminded that the Holy Spirit there was and is indeed the same Spirit belonging to both, the Father and the Son Jesus. The same Holy Spirit Who was involved in Creation, is and was, the same Spirit and the Third Person in the Divine Godhead consisting of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost; HE is also the same Spirit Who hovered over and impregnated a virgin, Mary to be exact, Jesus’ mother. (Luke 1:27 – 38)


    Again, HE is and was the same Spirit Who, after descending upon Jesus in the form of a dove, led Jesus up into the wilderness to be tempted of satan (the devil) immediately after Jesus was baptized. (Matthew 3:16 – 4:1)

    HE was and is the same Spirit that Jesus not only gave up on the Cross but of Whom also at that time, into the Father’s Hands, Jesus commenced HIS Spirit into. (Mark 15:37 – 39)

    HE was and is still the same Spirit Jesus sent and gave unto us after HIS Resurrection from the dead and before HE Ascended up unto Heaven, HE left us a Comforter = The Holy Spirit (John 14:16 – 18 and John 16:7 – 11) the same Spirit of Whom was and is the same Spirit and Third Person of the Heavenly Divine Godhead, Who Administers unto all of us as HE wills … all manners of Spiritual Gifts to each person and/or member of the Body of CHRIST as HE wills and/or desires. (1 Corinthians 12:4 – 11)

    Amen.

    1. Yes Andrea!! What a great way to start off this scripture study by seeing that the Holy Spirit is in fact with Jesus and God, he covers and gifts us! We pray that you are encouraged as you continue to study, reflect, pray, and share!

  2. The Hebrew word for God in the first verse of the Bible is the word Elohim, which is the plural form of God; meaning God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The Spirit of God played a unique part in the development and creation of the world. The very word Spirit means in it's original language, "a rational being," so the Holy Spirit is able to make decisions and is rational. Verse 2 states that the the Spirit of God moved over the face of the waters indicates a relaxation in the presence of God. There is a peace in the water. It makes us think of the waters of baptism, where we come in contact with the very Spirit of God and blood of Jesus. In this, we have peace, we have relaxation; and even in the dark and void places of our lives the Spirit provides peace...the Spirit is alive and calming us.

    These two lines are so beautiful and well crafted!
