In Principio: Genesis 1:2 – Part 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.”

I had initially thought to move on to verse three when something about this verse called back to me. 

“..and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.”

Everything was dark, still and formless. Like potential itself  was holding its breath.

And then the Spirit of God moved. And then things started to happen. 

This is, of course, the third Person of the Trinity, the Holy Spirit.  The Bible notes elsewhere that that Christ the Son is also identified as Jesus Christ the Creator. So it would appear that Creation was a Triune act.

I notice also how a God personally involved in His creation is inherent in this passage. Creation isn’t decreed from afar. Look how very close the Spirit of God is. Its moving on the face of the waters. Creation itself can feel the wind of the breath of God just before He speaks
