Genesis 1:1 – In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
The Torah is not fictional writings
Historical facts and details testify to the authenticity of Moses’ writings.
What was written by Moses is more than just inspired; there are direct words of God communicated to Moses
That generation of Israel who left Egypt under the leadership of Moses witnessed he went up the mountain to communicate with God.
Moses was in the presence of God and told to make record of what was being communicated
Today the nation of Israel and the Jewish people are living witness of God’s Torah
The Torah revealed God’s teachings to His chosen and those whom He redeemed from death and destruction
The opening message of Torah declared God’s ownership as creator and that teaches us how we should relate to God
The word “God” in Genesis 1:1 in the original script “אֱלֹהִ֑ים” (Elohim). Elohim is not a proper name but a title which ascribe to the greatness of God
In Genesis 2:4 the proper name of this same God who created the heavens and the earth is disclosed as “יְהוָ֥ה” (Yud-Heh-Vav-Heh). The proper name of God is revealed so that we know who is the one true living God we should be worshiping and to tell-apart others who claimed to be gods but are false gods or pretenders or man-made idols
There is only one true living God who has the power and authority to create the heavens and the earth and His name is “יְהוָ֥ה” (Yud-Heh-Vav-Heh)
