John 1:1 ‘In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Since the Word was God we can say that ‘In the Beginning was God’.
Biblical Chronology of Creation
This Gap Theory is also supported by Jer. 4:23 I beheld the earth, and, lo, it was without form, and void; and the heavens, and they had no light. Jeremiah uses the exact same terminology as Gen. 1:2 of the Earth being without form and void. This description cannot apply to Noah’s time since the Earth was not without form and not completely void and empty after Noah’s flood even though it was covered with water on a global scale for a short period of time. However the waters of Noah’s flood receded naturally much as a temporary stream or pond recedes after a heavy rainfall. Once the waters had receded the Earth was instantly habitable and fruitful, it was not left without form and void, and did not require a divine decree to make it fruitful and habitable as it did in Gen. 1 when it was first described as being without form and void. The word VOID as used in Gen. 1:2 and in Jer. 4:23 is the Hebrew word Bōhû: It is #H922 in Strong’s Concordance and dictionary. If we look carefully at the meaning of this word we find that this word describes the state of matter after God had created it but before it was fashioned for habitation. This was indeed true in Gen. 1 where the Earth had to be regenerated to make it fit for habitation by supernaturally providing light, removing the waters from the surface, generating vegetation, and finally by bringing forth living beings to inhabit it, both beasts and man. None of this applies to the time of Noah, and therefore Jeremiah’s description in chapter 4 where he specifically uses the word Bōhû can only refer to a much more ancient time, a pre–historical time that predates that of Adam and Noah by untold eons.
