Studying Genesis Chapter one and verse one
Genesis 1:1 "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth"
In the beginning        בראש'ת

The first word in the Bible in Hebrew is (בראש'ת) braysheet which is translated “In the beginning”. The letter “ב” "B" means "in", and the three letters following is “ראש” (rosh) means head or first.  The word (בראש'ת) braysheet means in the beginning. If we take the first two letters and the last two letters, will form the word   (בר'ת) "Breeth" which means covenant. The third and the fourth letters are the word “אש” which means man. The hidden meaning in the word (בראש'ת) is “God is making a covenant with man”.

The first three letters of this first word are “ב  ר  א”.  There are many words that start with “ב” but the most important word is   “בן”    which means “Son”. There are many words that start with “ר”, but the most important word is    רוח” which means “Spirit”.  There are many words that start with “א”, but the most important word is   אב” which means “Father”

We see the first three letters are the abbreviation of Son, Spirit, and Father. The trinity is declared very clearly in the whole Bible, but God declared in abbreviation in the first word, and the second word which we will study next time.

CREATE     ברא

 

"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth"  Genesis 1:1

 

The second word in the Hebrew Bible is create (barah  ברא ). This word to create is different from the word to make which is in Hebrew (asah  עשה).

To create matter you need energy, and God has infinite source of energy, so all what God needs to do to create this vast universe a drop of His infinite energy. Any other explanation of the presence of this vast universe will create a scientific problem. To say this universe came by a bang, even fools will not believe that. Tell a scientist that I saw a piece of matter flying from volcano and it fell in front of me, I picked it up and it is this Casio watch. He will tell you to your face you have lost your mind you are a fool. How could anybody dare to say that things are made without a maker. The Bible says, "The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. ...".   If we say there is no God then we have to explain this world and the life in this world by saying it came by coincidence.

God formed the word create (barah  ברא ) from three letters and these letters are “ב  ר  א”.  There are many words that start with “ב” but the most important word is   "בן"    which means “Son”. There are many words that start with “ר”, but the most important word is    רוח” which means “Spirit”.  There are many words that start with “א”, but the most important word is   אב” which means “Father”. Who created the heavens and the earth? God is the creator, and God the creator is Father, Son and Holy Spirit. So God formed a word to mean create by the abbreviation of Son, Holy Spirit, and Father. In English it will be SHF. In Hebrew it will be (barah  ברא ) which is create. In the word create we have a hidden explanation. God is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. But remember from this we can not teach the doctrine of the Trinity. The Bible is full with verses to teach the doctrine of the Trinity.
