Early Language

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.

Genesis 1:1-2 NKJV



Early Language

A devotion for June 13th through the 19th


It fascinates me how far back the truth about God and the Bible goes.  Did you know that the oldest language still being used goes back before the Bible?  What is even more fascinating is how it shows, by examining some of the written language, that the words and terms are based on things actually written in Genesis!  In a sermon by Tim Reisenberger entitled “God of My Fathers”, he shows examples of where some of the Chinese words come from and how some are formed that shows how they mirror the story of creation in the Bible.  This is fascinating!

Think about it.  How many cultures and languages that you can go back and see that in their beginning, things were based on the story of creation.  Based on God.  In the Chinese language there are so many words that when broken down, tell the story of creation.  Even in the Native American culture, they have always talked about the “Great Spirit” most likely referring to God.  There are so many symbols, artifacts, languages, everything that if you study it and look at it, you could find God or references to God and creation.

It is so amazing to see that even before the Bible was written, the story of creation was out there.  Even countries where atheism is prominent, the forefathers knew and believed in God.  They knew the story.  Instead of turning away from God and His truth, turn toward God.  Study His word.  You will find more truth than you ever thought possible.  God is so great!  Praise His holy name!
