The Creation Account from Genesis 1-2 The first two chapters of Genesis is about beginnings. God presents himself as omnipotence by first creating the heavens and earth. With the ability to create something out of nothing demonstrates the majestic powers of God.

Not only was this the beginning of the world, but also of sin and God’s promises.
The Creation Account from Genesis 1-2 God continues with the creation of the waters, land and then vegetation. The land produced vegetations: 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.

He gave man dominion over all the lands, seas and animals on this day.
