Bereishith means “in the beginning.” In the beginning, two major factors were existent when God created the heavens and the earth: His Torah and His Light. The Torah is the first five books of the Bible—Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. The Torah is God’s constitution; it is His teaching and instruction; it is eternal and it is life. His Spirit is pure Light, abundant with untouchable, supreme, sovereign power.
God is the Source of all life. He knew in advance the existence of every person who would ever be born into this world. He actually knew your name and your purpose before you were ever formed in the womb. He planned out your future, your occupation, and your purpose. That is why you must believe that your life is worth living.
In fact, everything that you see was hidden and encoded in the letters of the Torah scroll. The Torah has within it everything that you see—every motion, every movement, every person. It is a privilege to be studying the Torah, the mind of God. It is His plan for your existence and everything that you see.
