    It would probably be better to not spend years discussing it.

    Isaiah 45:18
    For thus says the LORD, Who created the heavens, Who is God, Who formed the earth and made it, Who has established it, Who did not create it in vain, Who formed it to be inhabited: "I am the LORD, and there is no other.

    Genesis 1:1,2
    In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

    2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

    Gap.

    This is pretty accurate but what most people don't know is, Branham grew up in what is called "2 seed Baptist"
    They were baptist but also believed in predestination and serpent seed.

    I have a Very close friend who was a Branhamite for years. He eventually got out of it. The stories he tells are mind boggling

    Many Branhamites are very isolated. They're like a subculture and have a dim view on women. Bran ham taught that it was all the woman's fault for the fallen broken world we live in.

    Gap.
    Here's how we can understand Scripture.

    Serpent Seed Doctrine-capture-jpg

    Context Interprets Scripture.

    In Isaiah we have (according to the NASB):
    - The Blessings of Israel, Isa 44:1-9
    - The Foolishness of Idolatry vv 8-20
    - God Forgives and Redeems vv 21-28
    - God Uses Cyrus 45:1-7
    - God's Supreme Power vv 8-25
    - Babylon's Idols and the True God 46:1-13

    can we say that a single verse in the middle of all that is, in context, talking of creation?

    Intent Interprets Scripture

    Where in Isaiah can we see any intent to speak about creation?

    The Clear Interprets the Obscure


    What does the Bible say of creation? In Gen 1 we read "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth" and then we have details of what happened each day, the days being identified by number, the first to the sixth.

    Gen 2 starts "And so the heavens and the earth were completed, and all their heavenly lights. By the seventh day God completed His work which He had done".

    Ex 20:11 says "For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea and everything that is in them, and He rested on the seventh day".

    Ex 31:17 says "in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, but on the seventh day He ceased from labor, and was refreshed."

    Four times Scripture speaks of the creation of heaven and earth. In six days. Is that not clear?



    These verses pass the Clarity, Context and Intent rule do they not?

    You've emphasised from Isaiah "Who formed it to be inhabited", and that is what God did, did He not? Over a period of six days?

    One image God uses a number of times is a potter making something from clay. The clay starts as a lump without form and is moulded over time into what the potter plans to make. Is this not similar? God starts by creating something described as without form (because He hasn't formed it yet), and void (because He hasn't created anything on it yet); and darkness (because he hasn't created light yet, though that is the first thing He does).
