If we continue on with this unusual interpretation of Genesis, where Genesis Chapter 1 is seen as summary of the entire Bible with the idea that “ye are Gods” (Psalm 82); then we are the God(s) in Genesis 1.
Genesis 1:1 “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.”
Genesis 2:4-5 “These [are] the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens, And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and [there was] not a man to till the ground.”
We create the heaven (our upper consciousness) and earth (our lower consciousness). The history or “generation” of how this comes about is described in Genesis 2. The LORD God or the “most high” God (Gen 14 & Psalm 78) creates the lower and higher consciousness (earth and heaven), in the same “day” as we create the heavens and earth. We work together to create. The man of the Garden is created as the earth and then the heavens, who then in turn and creates his own heaven and then earth. It is as if the man of the Garden creates a mirror image (visible) of what the LORD God has created (invisible) First comes earth and heavens, then comes heavens and earth. The visible is a mirror image patterned after the invisible. The LORD God creates the invisible (earth and heavens); where then the God of the earth (i.e. man) creates the visible (heavens and earth) from that which is invisible (see Romans 1) via the power he has through the LORD God.
Romans 1:19-23 “Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed [it] unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, [even] his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified [him] not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.”
What may be known about God is manifested in us. The invisible things that are from the creation of the world can be understood by the visible things. However when we come to “know” God our foolish heart becomes darkened. In other words, with knowledge comes power, but that power can be light that is indeed dark.
Matthew 6:23 “But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great [is] that darkness!”
Genesis 2:4 “These [are] the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens,..”
Amos 5:20 “[Shall] not the day of the LORD [be] darkness, and not light? even very dark, and no brightness in it?”
Genesis 3:22 “And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:”
Isaiah 41:23-24 “Shew the things that are to come hereafter, that we may know that ye [are] gods: yea, do good, or do evil, that we may be dismayed, and behold [it] together. Behold, ye [are] of nothing, and your work of nought: an abomination [is he that] chooseth you.”
When Adam’s eyes were opened he became one of the gods, but the light of his eyes was darkness due to the knowledge of both “good” and “evil”. And on this “day” that the earth and the heavens were created, the man became vain in his imaginations and his foolish heart was darkened (Romans 1). The tree of knowledge professes the man to be wise but he becomes a fool. And in being a “fool” he changed to glory of the incorruptible God (invisible God) into the physical and made himself to be a corruptible physical man manifesting the animal natures of the soul into the flesh. The things of the spirit (invisible) are made into the physical (visible) and man has the invisible “beasts of the field” inside of him including the serpent. But as it says in Isaiah 41 we gods are nothing and our work “nothing”. This is why the tree of life is guarded from us until we are no longer nothing.
Genesis 1:2 “And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness [was] upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.”
The words “without form” and “void” and “darkness” represent the vain chaotic ignorant nature of the pure carnal mind which is “nothing”. However the Spirit of God moves and begins to stir the Soul and this begins to awaken the mind to something more. This is done through the deep waters (words, doctrines, stories scriptures, myths, dark sayings, etc.) themselves. The Word comes to life because the surface (face) of the words are moved by the Spirit and the depth (deep waters, deep saying) of it them are discovered.
Genesis 1:3-4 “And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that [it was] good: and God divided the light from the darkness.”
After the surface of the waters are broken and the depth of them are discovered, the light begins to shine through. And the difference between darkness and light is now “heard”, and the truth in the doctrines are separated [from the rest] by the hearing of the ear. The cream is taken from the “milk” of the word. But we have to have ears to hear if we are understand what the Word is truly saying.
2 Timothy 2:15 “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
John 1:1 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
We “hear” the Words “let there be light” and the Word is God [speaking to us], therefore, the Word of God speaks to us and begins to set us free from the darkness of the carnal mind.
John 8:31-32 “…If ye continue in my word, [then] are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
Proverbs 20:12 “The hearing ear, and the seeing eye, the LORD hath made even both of them.”
Deuteronomy 29:4 “Yet the LORD hath not given you an heart to perceive, and eyes to see, and ears to hear, unto this day.”
Mark 7:16 “If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.”
We don’t automatically have ears that hear, but the LORD (most high God) can give them to us. Do we have them yet?
