Question: "Why, ‘Let There Be’?"
ANSWER > In The Beginning, The creation of the UNIVERSE:
On the first day of creation, God said, “Let there be light” (Genesis 1:3), and light appeared as a thing separate from darkness. The phrase let there be light is a translation of the Hebrew phrase yehi ˈor, which was translated “fiat lux” in Latin. A literal translation would be a command, something like “Light, exist.” God is speaking into the void and commanding light to come into being. The Bible tells us that God created the heavens and the earth and everything else that exists by simply speaking them into existence (Genesis 1). His personality, power, creativity, and beauty were expressed in creation the same way an artist’s personality and personal attributes are expressed through art or music. The idea of light, existing first in God’s mind, was given form by the words “Let there be light” or “Let light exist.”
The reality of the creative power of God’s voice has important spiritual implications that go well beyond the creation account itself. Light is often used as a metaphor in the Bible, and the word illumination (“divine enlightenment of the human heart with truth”) has to do with bringing things into the light (existence). Spiritual illumination is a kind of “creation” that occurs in a human heart. “God, who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness,’ made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ” (2 Corinthians 4:6). Jesus Himself is “the light of the world” (John 8:12).
When God said, “Let there be light,” at the creation, and light appeared, it showed God’s creative power and absolute control. The physical light that God made on the first day of creation is a wonderful picture of what He does in every heart that trusts in Christ, the True Light. There is no need to walk in the darkness of sin and death; in Christ, we “will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life” (John 8:12).
ANSWER > In The Beginning, The creation of MAN/WOMAN:
Man was created in the image of God stated in Genesis 1:26-27 > (Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth." God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.) God had/has the personality, power and creativity in his mind to first envision and think what this universe and the things in it would look like and be in a physical form, then with the power of his words "Let There Be..." bring them into existence > We inherited that same personality, power and creativity as in Genesis 1.
ANSWER > We were known and destined with a PURPOSE before our physical existence:
God designed our mere existence on earth (PURPOSE/DESTINY) before we were conceived. As it is written Jeremiah 1:5 > (“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.” on earth exist.)
ANSWER > We were created with a GIFT (Purpose, Destiny, Seed) inside of us:
All creations were created with a GIFT with an inherent capacity to fullfill a function that meets a need in creation. As it is written Romans 12: 6-8 > (Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; If service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching; The one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads, with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness.)
ANSWER > Every GIFT that we were given has a PURPOSE that it is to serve:
Whatever you were created to become, YOU POSSES it now! Whatever you were born to do is not ahead of you, it's within YOU. As it is written 1 Peter 4:10> (Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God's grace in its various forms.)
ANSWER > As God, our mind, thoughts and words are POWERFUL, they form whatever we think and speak:
We are what we think and we become what we continue to think. We must constantly monitor your thinking processes. As it is written Proverbs 23:7 > (For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee..) As we speak, we release our words into the universe and as we were created in Gods image our words give physical form. As it is written Proverbs 18:21 > (Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.) Knowing that we inherited the mind power of God and that our thoughts have tremendous POWER, we must constantly be aware and in control of our conscious and subconscious thoughts. We inherited the authority program and reprogram any and all thoughts. As it is written Romans 12:2 > ( And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
