This year we are covering the four Gospel Accounts together in chronological order.
In the previous post, we saw that "In the beginning..." Jesus was already with God and Jesus was already God.
"2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made through him; and without him was not anything made that hath been made."
This passage confirmed the definition of "In the beginning..."
In order for all things to be made through Jesus, He would have to exist before these things were made.
Jesus would have to had existed before the beginning.
"In the beginning..." (Genesis 1:1) did not refer to the first moment of time. Genesis 1:1 referred to the moment God created all the physical matter that would ever exist. In fact, the word for "earth" in Genesis 1:1 meant exactly that!
"In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth." (Genesis 1:1)
God created the place were He would put His banner (heaven) and He created all the physical matter that would ever exist (earth)...because the next sentence (Genesis 1:2) stated the earth was without form and void. According to Wayne Swokowski, this meant all the physical matter that would ever exist was without a purpose (without logos) and without anything good or bad in it.
In fact, throughout the Creation account in Genesis 1, the definition and etymology of the words used showed there was more than one being present. In fact, in Wayne's podcasts, he explained that God created during the first six days through "agreement and consent of someone else from a thought through others".
Creation can only occur through agreement.
Satan is unable to create. This is a What.
Why can't Satan create?
Satan can't create because he is unable to come into agreement with anyone.
Jesus existed before the creation of heaven and all the physical matter that would ever exist.
