Beginning of the world

A starry night.When any of us start to build something we get the various bits – the building blocks, and then join them together.

But when we are talking about the beginning of the world there were no building blocks.

There was nothing.

When I say there was nothing. I mean there was nothing of tangible substance.

God was there and the Bible expresses it so profoundly and yet so simply:

In the beginning God …”

And what did He do:

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” Genesis 1:1

God’s method of creating the world was:

  • Out of nothing.
  • Instantly created – in no time at all.
  • Instant perfection – with no experimentation.
  • Simply by ordering it – creating laws so there was a harmony in the way things existed with each other.
Adam and Eve.
Adam and Eve.

Wow! That is the real Creator God!
