The Coarse Course of YHWH


The uniqueness of the opening chapter of The Book, that which is titled ‘Genesis’, is the introduction, from the very outset, of God; or Elohim. The English word, ‘god’, seems to be morphed from what some claim is the old Germanic language, primarily the basis of the languages of the peoples that populated the areas surrounding the Baltic Sea region of northwestern Europe, several hundred years BC. This hypothesis seems to be the more readily accepted, although far from having been authenticated as absolute fact. But this hypothesis also has much spiritual information to give it credibility, and authenticity.

The Hebrew word we translate as ‘god’ is ‘elohim’, pronounced ‘el-o-heem’. This, in itself, is not all that important, until you realize that the word/name ‘Yahweh’, more commonly pronounced in English as ‘Jehovah’, doesn’t show up in The Book until Genesis chapter 2. Throughout the whole of Genesis chapter 1 we are introduced to the presence, and the intentional and orderly fruitful productivity, of ‘Elohim’.

KJV Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God [Elohim] created the heaven(s) and the earth.

In Genesis 1:1 we are introduced to creation as God, or Elohim, deems creation to be. In Gen. 1:2, however, we are immediately introduced to an earth that is in chaos, or a state of disorder and unproductivity. The Hebrew language of verse 2 gives a more vivid analysis of the disorderly conditions that exist in verse 2, and with no explanation as to how the chaos of verse 2 came to be. The English translation of verse 2 offers very little light to further understand this deteriorated condition. And to add emphasis to this mysterious scenario, Is. 45:18 tells us that God created the earth to be inhabited, and the earth was not created “…without form and void” [Gen. 1:2] However, the Hebrew language of Is. 45:18 also gives some hidden clues as to what Isaiah was trying to communicate.

After the opening two verses of Genesis 1, the remainder of the chapter is an unveiling of the vision of how the created and formed universe unfolded, and in a precise and orchestrated design. The vision is one of exquisite order and organization. It is not, however, a dictated and orchestrated timetable, or schedule of events. It is more a parable of the participants of this universe finding their orderly appearance and timing in the precise organization of ultimate proficiency. God is not the author of confusion, but of precise and practical order.

“In the beginning God created…” The very nature of the Hebrew word translated ‘create’, and ‘created’, implies having already seen, or envisioned, the intended and desired finished product, before the first action is taken to give the creation its form. [Is. 46:10] No master craftsman begins to form and fashion without having already seen, within himself, a desired finished product. Genesis, Chapter 1, includes just such a plan of action. Genesis, Chapter 1, tells of Elohim becoming involved in creation to restore and re-activate the precise harmony that only the Spirit of God can provide; for God is Love, and Love is always about the business of harmony, wholeness and order.

The ultimate activity and plan of God, in my opinion, is to equip and empower ‘adam’ with the Spirit of God, and therefore become ‘Adam’. Just as Abram had to learn to become Abraham, so ‘adam’ has to learn to become Adam; and ultimately Christ. The whole of Genesis Chapter 1 is to communicate to us, the seekers, all of the parables and metaphors that emphasize the precise order that God, or Elohim, is illustrating in this opening chapter of The Book. Every verse of Chapter 1 has a revealing and illuminating order to its wording, and the practical progression that this parable provides for us leads us, step by practical step, through the recognition of the precision of the universe around us. Every verse progresses to the next level of revelation, and each verse builds upon the previous verse like a master mason building steps to ascend a stairway to the top of a pinnacle, or understanding. And the ascension to conquer this pinnacle, or level of understanding, never ceases. [Isaiah 9:7 “Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end.”] Therein just might be the most intriguing mystery of them all; “…of the increase, there shall be no end”.
