Monday's Mini-Messages

Genesis 1:1 "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth." The Word 'universe' could be viewed as two words: 1) 'uni' meaning one and 2) 'verse' meaning one line or sentence, as in a poem, song or scripture. And Genesis 1:1 speaks of the creation of the entire universe in ONE SENTENCE. Coincidence? This reminds me of recent post: Notice something quite significant about the first verse of the Bible: It speaks of time (in the beginning), space (the heaven), and matter (and the earth). God is not limited to the dimensions of time and space, as we are. Instead, He transcends the material universe. Furthermore, the Bible says He inhabiteth eternity (Isaiah 57:15). Meaning God is in the past, present and future all at the same time. This is why He knows the beginning and the end. As my home pastor has often said, there is only one who is awesome, and it is God! Psalm 33:8 - "Let all the earth fear the LORD: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him."
As recently as the 19th century scientists believed the universe was eternal and always existed. However, a number of discoveries would challenge this theory and cause scientists to discard it and develop a new one, called the Big Bang Theory. Edwin Hubble's discovery would be the main catalyst for the change. In the early 1900s, Mr. Hubble observed certain astrological features which suggested the universe was expanding, or moving away from its original core, or center. This would mean the universe had an origin. Initially, scientists were suspicious and very reluctant to embrace a Big Bang type theory, as it would open the door to the possibility of a beginning of the universe and a creator. It does appear the findings of Mr. Hubble, and others, support precisely what the Bible says about the universe. In Isaiah 40:22 it says, "It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth... that STRETCHETH OUT THE HEAVENS as a curtain..." The Bible says in numerous places that God stretched out the heavens, but the they are not the only thing God has stretched out. He has also stretched out His arms to all of those who would come to Him for salvation.
