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. Genesis 1:2
Although the marvelous universe had been called into existence, from absolutely nothing, by the omnipotent Creator it was not yet energized and set in motion. What was this energy? What power would activate this energy?
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made. In Him was life; and the life was the light of men. John 1:1-4
The energizing action would come from the Holy Spirit and the activating power would come from the Word of God, our Lord, Jesus. God the Father spoke the creation, the Holy Spirit energized the creation and Jesus activated the creation!
The Spirit of GOD moved. At this point the Holy Spirit moves into action. The word "Spirit" is the Hebrew word rauch, which means "breath" in Genesis 1:2. The creative activity about to occur requires the person of GOD. The particular person of GOD, the Holy Spirit, that is working at this point mentioned is both omnipresent and energizing.
The energizing activity of the Holy Spirit is described as moving upon the face of the waters. The Hebrew word for "moved" is rachaph, which means to shake or to flutter. The idea here seems to be an activity that is a rapid back and forth motion. We might describe this motion as a vibration. If the universe is to be energized (Holy Spirit) there must be an Energizer (GOD the Father). If the universe is to be set in motion, there must be a Prime Mover (the Word of GOD, Jesus Christ).
