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.
Wow! That is the real Creator God!
