In*the*beginning (Re****h H7225) is a Prefixed Preposition Construct State Noun (pp/cs/nn). The kaph pp (in) indicates a special relation to the noun to which it is attached (In*beginning...) and includes the definite article (the); the two functioning as they would alone (In*the...). Hence, In*the*beginning rendered from Re****h (H7225). The primary function of the cs/nn (beginning) is a genitive relation, making it dependent on another noun (God).
This all means "In*the*beginning God", followed by whatever action is represented by the following verb. It is inseparable, and means God IS the beginning. It doesn't reference time, it indicates the source; the principle thing. It represents the first in rank, place, order, or time. It is a commencement or origin; the initiation and foundation of a series of historical events.
It literally means God created everything within Himself to be the foundational of all that came into existence as He began to act. That act is further revealed in John 1:1 as God's Logos being borne forth by the breath of His Spirit from the substance of Himself as the content of the Rhema to be thought and spoken as God's Wisdom and Reason... The Word.
Before there was any beginning, God considered all that was in Himself and internally planned to externally express Himself by full demonstration of His essence and substance coming forth as He spoke all natural creation into existence as He specifically manifested Himself externally within that creation, ultimately within the likeness of sinful flesh.
God's Soul (The Father) breathed forth His Spirit to speak The Word (The Son). The Word divided asunder (separated and distributed) His Soul-Spirit for the Holy Spirit to indwell man's spirit, beginning with Jesus as the Firstborn of many brethren and from the dead. We have the earnest of that inheritance, and are joint-heirs awaiting redemption of the purchased possession.
"But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God." -1Cor. 2:9-10
Yes, God revealed Himself to me 14 years ago, and has been doing so ever since; enabling me to express Him as He expressed Himself as Ho Logos (The Word).
I've braved the blistering wind of your sparse words... where's the substance? Blinding us with a sandstorm of pseudo-rhetoric in an attempt to let everyone know someone superior has arrived is myopic and egocentric. Do you speak of Him or yourself? I've heard little of Him, much of you, and a lot of vaguery and innuendo.
Why are you here? What do you have to say? Is there a central truth you would care to divulge or declare or propagate or delineate or at least allude to? Thank you in advance.
Ummmm... can't you just ask God if He speaks to me, then?
