These are the generations of the heavens and the earth, when they were created, in the day that the Lord (JEHOVAH) God made the earth and the heavens.

Jehovah “He is” – “The Self-Existing One” generally translated as “the Lord”. In the name Jehovah three periods of existence come together in one word: the past, the present and the future; He that always is and that ever is to come. The name “Lord” as used of the Lord Jesus Christ in the New Testament is Jehovah in the Old Testament.

He is worthy of all praise and adoration. He is the God who made the heavens and the earth. He set the stars in their places and hung the moon where it is. He rules over all and yet He seeks a relationship with His creation. He is to be honored and seated on the throne above all. He is the great and mighty God who raises up kingdoms and subdues nations at His choosing. In His mercy He sustains all life and delights in our souls.

El Bethel

And he built there an alter and called the place El Bethel because there God appeared unto him when he fled from the face of his brother.

The God of the house of God. The God that can do all things and that no purpose of Him can be stopped. The power and the strength of God are revealed in the glory of the heavens. The skies display His craftsmanship. Day after day men can see the greatness of God, they make Him to be known. The elements speak without word yet their message is heard in all the earth. The eternal power and the divine nature of God has been clearly seen and understood through His great creation.

Men must give Him praise for who He is and the revelation of Himself to all of us.
