JESUS in GENESIS. Discovering Jesus Christ In All The Scriptures.

GENESIS

Chapter 1

The Book of Beginnings.

I want to take you

through the entire Volume of Holy Scripture,
book by book and show you

the message of each book

and its relation to the whole Word of God.

*

That will be the easy part.
Here’s the tough part

—I plan to cover one entire book

in each of the succeeding chapters.

*

We will begin, of course,

with Genesis, the book of beginnings.

*

What I hope to do in these studies

is to give you a zoom-lens

view of Holy Scripture.

I trust the Lord will use them

to help you see clearly

that the Message of this Book,

from Beginning to End is Jesus Christ

and Him Crucified, and that
you will be able to grasp more fully

the Whole Truth of God,

the Whole of Divine Revelation.

*

We read in Genesis 1:1-3;

—”In the Beginning God Created
the Heaven and the Earth.

And the Earth

was without form,
and void;

and darkness was on the face of the deep.

And the Spirit of God

Moved on the face of the waters.

And God said, Let there be light:

and there was light.”

*

Here is a picture of redemption.

In chapter 50, verses 24-26,

we read—

”And Joseph said to his brethren,

I die: and God will surely Visit you,

and bring you out of this land

to the land which He Swore

to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob.

And Joseph took an oath

of the children of Israel,

saying, God will surely Visit you,

and you will carry up

my bones from hence.

So Joseph died,

being an hundred and ten years old:

and they embalmed him,

and he was put in a coffin in Egypt.”

Adapted from

Discovering Jesus Christ In All The Scriptures

by Don Fortner.

The Book of Genesis opens with a picture of Redemption;
and it closes with a promise of Redemption;

and everything between Genesis 1:1 and 50:26

shows either our desperate need of Redemption

or God’s marvelous method of Redemption
and Grace by Jesus Christ.

***
There is no greater wonder,

no greater miracle in the world
than the BIBLE you can hold in your hand.

The Lord God, in Great Mercy and Grace,

has given us His Word in one Blessed,

Holy, Inspired Volume,

and has given it to us in our language,

so that we can read it, hear Him Speak,

and learn of Him.

***

The Book of God is a Great, Tremendous,

Miraculous Book.

Let us Honor it as God

Who gave us His Word Honors It

shown us in Psalm 138:2;

“I will worship

toward thy holy temple,

and praise Your Name

for Your Loving-kindness

and for Your Truth:

for You have Magnified Your Word

above All Your Name.”

( because God’s Word

DESCRIBES GOD

and HIS CHARACTER

and NAMES !)

***
Surely, we to whom THE BIBLE is given,

we who are made to profit by THE BIBLE,

Honor THE BIBLE.

We Honor the Book of God by reading it,
believing it, seeking to understand it,

and living by it.

In doing so, we will Honor our God.

***

Evidence of Inspiration

One of the most powerful

and unanswerable evidences

of the inspiration

of the Bible is its Unity.

***

One message runs through THE BIBLE’S pages

= Redemption.

One Person is Portrayed, Prophesied,
Presented, and Proclaimed throughout the Book of God

= The Lord Jesus Christ.

Yet, the Scriptures were written

over a period of hundreds of years

by numerous and diverse men,

most of whom never knew one another,

written under extremely diverse conditions,

containing neither error nor contradiction of any kind.

***

That fact cannot be explained
except by one thing—God did it.

—”For the Prophecy came
not in old time by the will of man:

but holy men of God spoke
as they were moved

by the Holy Ghost”

(2 Pet. 1:21).
