Let There Be Light!

Genesis 1:3-25

Let there be!


3And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. 4God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. 5God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.

6And God said,

Let there be an expanse between the waters to separate water from water.

7So God made the expanse and separated the water under the expanse from the water above it. And it was so.

8God called the expanse “sky.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the second day.

9And God said,

Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear.” And it was so.

10God called the dry ground “land,” and the gathered waters he called “seas.” And God saw that it was good.

11Then God said,

Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.” And it was so.

12The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good. 13And there was evening, and there was morning—the third day.

14And God said,

Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark seasons and days and years, 15and let them be lights in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth.And it was so.

16God made two great lights—the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars. 17God set them in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth, 18to govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19And there was evening, and there was morning—the fourth day.

20And God said,

Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the sky.

21So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living and moving thing with which the water teems, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.

22God blessed them and said,

“Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the water in the seas, and let the birds increase on the earth.” 23And there was evening, and there was morning—the fifth day.

24And God said,

“Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: livestock, creatures that move along the ground, and wild animals, each according to its kind.And it was so. 25God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.

 
 

Verse 3   Let There Be!

And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.

וַיֹּ֥אמֶר אֱלֹהִ֖ים יְהִ֣י אֹ֑ור וַֽיְהִי־אֹֽור׃

יְהִ֣י  let there be : Jussive(imperative) of הָיָה hayah - come to pass, become, be

 When God created the world, He used His Voice Command System except when creating a man. He simply said, “Let there be light, let there be an expanse, let the land appear, let the land produce…” etc.

This is all possible because He is omnipotent (all powerful) and nothing is impossible for Him in calling everything into a being ex nihilo (out of nothing).

The Bible calls this Commanding Voice of God, “the Word” Who made the world in the beginning.

John 1:1-3

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning.

Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made.



Human invented the epoch-making device which is called, “voice command or voice recognition” system and started to use it in their daily life.

One of my sons drives a 2011 Ford Fusion and it is equipped with the voice command system device installed on board. It looked very cool when I saw him using it to find the music he wants to listen or the place he wants to go while driving etc.

 

Notes

Ford SYNC is a factory-installed, integrated in-vehicle communications and entertainment system that allows users to make hands-free telephone calls, control music and perform other functions with the use of voice commands. The system consists of applications and user interfaces developed by Ford and third-party developers, and run on the Windows Embedded Automotive operating system designed by Microsoft. Ford first announced SYNC in January 2007 at the Detroit International Auto Show.

 SYNC was released onto the retail market in 2007 when Ford installed the technology in twelve Ford group vehicles (2008 model) in North America. As of 2012, SYNC is offered in North America as a feature in fourteen Ford models and five Lincoln models
