1 John 5:7 - For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.

Here's my view
The first fruits
Well spotted. Bara is only used with Elohim as subject and its closest relative must be the noun Son [of] or Bar as in Barjesus, Bardavod or Barabbas.
An odd word indeed. Always plural or dual, but acts singular.
See my reply above. AT is the accusative case article in Hebrew.
aleph-tau (alpha-omega, the entire alphabet, the logos)
The firstborn power was male/female. In the image of god he created them male and female. (heaven male/earth female at least in the Hebrew sense, reversed in the Egyptian).
The source (the Father) --> birthed the Logos, the Logos was Male/Female (Sophia/Jesus) --> The 7 days in Gen 1 are not speaking of the physical world, but of the spiritual man, it is the evolution of the spiritual man.
Gen 1:1 is the seed, the 7 days are the full plant. The final destination is the 7th day which is rest, which is shown to be oneness with God in Hebrews 9-12.
And the earth became formless and void is the beginning of our state when we enter the physical world. Dark and cold in understanding. Veiled in our minds by the thick clouds. Then the spirit vibrates over the waters of our mind--> LET THERE BE LIGHT. That is the first birth or awakening to see beyond the physical veil. We begin to separate darkness from light like night from day. But we are still not fully there. We must develop a living ecology, with birds (imagination, goals dreams) fish (deep thoughts, emotions). The 6th day being the culmination of the process when we are made fully human (the true human or the Son of Man). Fully conscious fully aware. This is a male/female spirit and flesh united, this is the resurrection body, the ascended body.

best thread on ATS ATM.
Doesnt the word for void also imply "a judement passed by God" .....MADE VOID?
implying that it once had light....was the home of light....made void by judgement....and was made dark...
The first verse in the Hebrew Torah reads (with the common spaces, but without mesorah and punctuation): Heb: ...בראשית ברא אלהים את השמים ואת הארץ Tr: Bereshyt bara Elohim at hashamayim waat haeretz Eng: Initially created Forces the two Names of God and the Land... KJV: In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth Now who can spot the modern translating error?

The -ayim suffix isn't a regular plural (m.: -im / f.: -ot), it specifically denotes pairs of things. Two heavens, or like I said, rather, two shem-ayim lit. the two n a m e s [of God] (possibly relating to Earth's two distinct hemispheres?)
