This makes me think of God calling us to be separate from the world, giving us a purpose to serve (or rule with) Him in accordance to His plan in the hope of our names being written down in the book of life. When God speaks, His Word creates. 

 John 1:1-18 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through Him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. 6 There was a man sent from God whose name was John. 7 He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through Him all might believe. 8 He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light. 9 The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him.

Geography
I am not big on geography but I have started trying to learn more about it so I can better understand the bible the way the narrators want us to. Is there any advise on how to improve my understanding of the  geography in the bible so I know how to infer them when mentioned in the bible? Are there any techniques you'll recommend to keep tabs? 

Also what is the importance of genealogy in the bible? It is also an area of the bible I am trying to work on building interest (asides the genealogy of Jesus, others may be a bit difficult to follow or see reasons why they are there).

Scott Noegel and Genesis 1:1
Scott Noegel wrote an academic article, surveying the Hebrew Bible as well as ancient Ugaritic and Mesopotamian literature, by which he suggested that erets when coupled with heavens usually denotes the underworld AKA Sheol. He then argued this would mean that Gen. 1:1 should read "When God began to create heavens and Sheol..." This phrase, "heavens and Sheol," would then function as a phrase denoting almost universal application, like saying "from A to Z."

I am curious, not if that's the correct rendering, but rather, how would that rendering of Gen. 1:1 shift the interpretation and of Gen. 1 if at all.

20th century Christianity
Why did we spend so much time arguing about the afternoon of the 600th day of tribulation and not focus a bit more on the story?

Practicing Apocalypse in one's life.
I understand the concepts and ideas of the revelation of Jesus' life-death-resurrection. I understand the concept of heavens and earth unified. I understand the concept of our present reality should be lived in view of our eternal reality (in Jesus). 
How does one live/practice all of this in a way that reflects all the concepts above?

Prayer as a result
My main question so far is how does this passage call us to pray as a result of hearing Paul’s heart for the followers of Messiah Jesus? 

I feel drawn to my knees to ask God for Him to bring the fullness of His plan. In 2 Peter 3:12 we are to wait for and hasten the day of God. One way to do this is through prayer. A second way to hasten His kingdom is by inviting others to participate in the living temple of believers. Sharing the gospel of Christ is the mission of the believer. As I think more along this line, I am reminded of 1 John and the “we” he uses to communicate. “The eternal life of the Father that has been revealed to us” is a similar thought. So much to think about.
