The Supernatural Entering the Natural

October 9, 2018

 

Just like other synagogues around the world right after the Biblical Feast of Sukkot or Tabernacles our synagogues read the last verses Deuteronomy and immediately rolled our Torah scroll back to Genesis to continue the reading cycle by reading the first verses of Genesis. In this way, we never complete our reading of the Torah we just continue in a never-ending loop. 

As we read the first few verses of Genesis again a word jumped out at me and something I had never seen before was revealed about G-D, His nature, and His sovereignty. 

Let's look at Genesis 1:1-2:

1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now the earth was chaos and waste, darkness was on the surface of the deep, and the Ruach Elohim was hovering upon the surface of the water.

These verses begin the Bible by introducing us to G-D and His creative power. From nothing, He created everything in the Heavens and Earth. The eternal he created the temporal, out of the intangible he created
