In the beginning, God created the world with His word (Hebrews 11:3).
When we say ‘in the beginning’, it has two meanings.
There is a reference to ‘In the beginning’ in Genesis 1:1 and also in John 1:1.
In Genesis, ‘in the beginning’ refers to the creation of our material world.
‘In the beginning’ noted in the gospel of John refers to the Creator who made the material world.
We do not have any explanation as to what material was used in what specific way to cause the beginning of our material world. Only that God spoke and what He commanded came into existence.
And thousands of years later, the reality of ‘His word’ was disclosed through John (John 1:1-3).
In spite of this, the world did not recognise Him. The Bible testifies that when He came to the world, His people did not receive Him (John 1:10, 11).
Jesus Christ is the Word Himself. He explained His word, using a parable of the field, to those who could not understand it (Matthew 13:1-23).
He said that even though the seed was sown, it could not bear fruit because the heart was like the roadside, a rocky place, and the field of thorns. This indicates that there are many obstacles.
However, there is a heart like good soil which comes to an understanding and bears much fruit, meeting the expectations of the farmer (Luke 13:6). People with such heart are the ones who
will bear fruit for the seed of Gospel (Mark 4:28).
This is the real church of Christ. The Holy Spirit actively supports such church. (John 14:26, Acts 9:31)
