Chapter 1 Video Sample -"Creation"
Out of nothing, God brought forth everything. This chapter of iBIBLE takes you through the days of creation: the creation of space and time, the universe, the world, the animals, the garden of Eden, and finally mankind.
When everything was created by God, all things were in perfect harmony with their Creator. God looked upon all that He had made after the 6th day, and we are told in the Scriptures that,
God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good. —Gen. 1:31 [ESV]
God’s original vocation for mankind was to tend the garden in which they were placed. They were also charged to fill the earth and rule over it. God had given man a job to do:
The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it. —Gen. 2:15
The first instructions that God gave mankind are also recorded in the Bible:
God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over…every living thing that moves on the earth.” —Gen. 1:28
The Bible does not tell us how much time passed before sin and disobedience came into the picture, or how long Adam and Eve lived in the garden. However, we do witness a glimpse of a man and woman living without sin, in harmony with their Creator and His creation, with all at peace.
As those who believe in God’s promises, we can look forward to the day when the world in which we live will be restored to that perfect harmony and relationship with God:
The wolf shall dwell with the lamb…the calf and the lion and the fattened calf together; and a little child shall lead them…They shall not hurt or destroy in all my holy mountain; for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea. —Isaiah 11:6–9, excerpted
The whole earth is at rest and quiet; they break forth into singing. —Isaiah 14:7
And John records this wonderful vision of what we have to look forward to in the final Revelation:
Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” —Rev. 21:1-4
We know all of this will come to fruition when these words of Jesus are fulfilled:
“And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.” —Matt. 24:14
It is exciting to know that a visual presentation of the entire Bible can be used, not only to show God’s incredible plan of salvation, but to also help fulfill the words of Jesus!
We pray that you will join us in bringing the entire story of God’s Word to life, so that the whole world may see and hear the Good News!
