Genesis 1:1 - The Heavens

Additional Notes

Prayer verse: Proverbs 2:6-10

Spiritual principles:

  • In the beginning, God created the heavens (two of them), the angelic beings, and the earth.
  • God created the third heaven above the second, where He regularly meets in His throne room with a council of the angelic beings, both good and evil.
  • God created the second heaven (outer space), where the angelic beings can move and dwell, where He placed the great lights to provide sustenance for life on earth, and so man would look up to the heavens and be in awe and worship God.
  • There is a great gulf from earth to the third heaven, but if we have been born again and believe in Jesus Christ, we have a hotline to God that is not space and time dependent.
