Revelation - 2000

The first book of Moses: Genesis



Introduktion-------The way of Banishment ------ The way of Return


Comprehension of the Lord is unachievable for human mind. But as man is developing spiritually and receives the better understanding of the world, the Lord gives him chance to comprehend the Truth anew, which is contained in the Holy Scripture. This assistance is manifested in comprehension of new meaning comprised by the Holy Scripture and in revelations proving the constancy of the main provisions, the one of which is:

But it should not be interpreted too conventionally, as the Lord represents the unique multilevel system, while the names of individual divine manifestations with regard to creation (of the world and man) are known to people from Revelations. These Manifestations are demonstrated in the Scripture and feature individual properties. These levels show hierarchy with regards to creation tasks, while the direction is from general tasks to specific. It's proved by the fact of initial creation of spiritual world, which was followed by the creation of material world and the sequence of more specific creative deeds.
Similarity is one of the Creation concepts. It is manifested in sophisticated multilevel nature of living structure and in the presence of collective mind, which is attributive to any living being: vegetation, animals and people. The collective mind is similar to the Lord, it is characterized by multilevel nature, while the upper levels show personal qualities. It is manifested in human society in the form of family and tribal structures, which further develop into peoples and nations.
The most complete embodiment of the Lord similarity is given on His will to man: man has multilevel mind, the levels of which get personal qualities in the course of development, while the unity and integrity of mind is not to be ruined. Man holds the seed of the Holy Spirit and – it's natural – he is striving to comprehend the Creator and knowingly or unwittingly he is shaping the image of the Lord. It should be noted that images of the Lord which were revealed to prophets at various times were defined basically by the level of spiritual stance of people and by the level of the task those people faced. We have to understand precisely that no image no shape available to human mind can represent the Lord entirely and uniquely, and should be regarded as unallowable misrepresentation.


The First Day – The Light

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.
And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light "day," and the darkness he called "night."
And there was evening, and there was morning-the first day. (Gen. 1, 1-5)

The creation of heavens and earth is comprehended as the creation of spiritual and material worlds, and both worlds are not independent: all the events of spiritual world are reflected in developments of material world and vice versa. As mankind is developing the impact of such development upon spiritual and material world is increasing and as a result mankind faces more sophisticated requirements for spiritual stance of mankind.
So, God created light as light is the Truth and God is creating in Truth. God separated light from the darkness and named the light "day" and then God was creating only in day time. If we believe that God created the most important at the beginning – the basis of the further creation, than the Truth is this basis, which ties into integral unity spiritual and material worlds. God is giving names to the creation, securing the creation. So, the day was named as the first and the night was the second.

The Second Day – The Sky

And God said, "Let there be an expanse between the waters to separate water from water." So God made the expanse and separated the water under the expanse from the water above it. And it was so. God called the expanse "sky." And there was evening, and there was morning-the second day. (Gen. 1, 6-8)

God created the sky and abyss – a portion of waters, which was under the air. The sky was named as the third. We'll note that during the flood all the three sources of waters were used: rain from the sky was followed by the waters flooding from the sky and then the underground waters came up.

The Third Day – Land and Seed-bearing Plants

And God said, "Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear." And it was so. God called the dry ground "land," and the gathered waters he called "seas." And God saw that it was good.
Then God said, "Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds." And it was so. The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good. And there was evening, and there was morning-the third day. (Gen. 1, 9-13)

Further on the land created by God is participating in further creation according to wishes of God. There is no Sun yet, but God has already created vegetation, seed-bearing and fruit-bearing plants. Thus Sun plays not the main part in vegetation world. We may recollect that light was created in the first day. Vegetation, seed-bearing plants and trees are the first products of earth according to God wish. Land was the fourth and seas were the fifth.

The Fourth Day – The Sun, The Moon and Stars

And God said, "Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark seasons and days and years, and let them be lights in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth." And it was so. God made two great lights-the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars. God set them in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth, to govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness. And God saw that it was good. And there was evening, and there was morning-the fourth day. (Gen. 1, 14-19)

The Fifth Day – Birds And Fish

And God said, "Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the sky." So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living and moving thing with which the water teems, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. God blessed them and said, "Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the water in the seas, and let the birds increase on the earth." And there was evening, and there was morning-the fifth day. (Gen. 1, 20-23)

Water takes part in creation of living creatures, meanwhile water plays the key role in creation of the world: light and water are direct basis of anything living on earth, these elements are the basis of spiritual life as they are the symbols of spiritual truth and spiritual life.

The Sixth Day – Living Creatures On Land And People

And God said, "Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: livestock, creatures that move along the ground, and wild animals, each according to its kind." And it was so. God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.
Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground." So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. God blessed them and said to them, "Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground." Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-everything that has the breath of life in it-I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning-the sixth day.
(Gen. 1, 24-31)

The second creation of earth on wish of God – the plenty of animals. The earth gave them animal souls and since that time God ordered to give the blood of animals, which keeps animal souls, to land. God created people – male and female – and he gave them the power to role all the fish, birds and beast of the earth, he gave them seed-plants and fruit for food and land to rule. The ruling of man over animal world and land given to man by God would be distorted in the time of heathenism and as a result would lead to creation of various magic cults. But now the created world is characterized by spiritual unity and God is the basis of this unity.

The Seventh Day – The Rest

Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array. By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.
(Gen. 2, 1-3)

The seventh day, the day of rest is the day of unity of the Creator and His creation. On this exact day God commanded the people of Israel to convene holy congregations and to devote this day to God, revering and trying to comprehend Him.
