Origin of the Universe
Origin of Universe, Origin of Life on Earth
Influence is for good or bad. Contrary to what many believe, this world is being deceived by a diabolical force, who is aware of the inevitable outcome, his doom and that of his fallen cohorts [demons], and all that they manage to deceive.
Any scientist who really understands the Bible will inevitably believe in a Giver of life, the Uncaused, who has neither beginning nor end.
This Uncaused has given us His name, as YHWH [ancient Hebrew had no written vowels], rendered in English as Yahweh or JEHOVAH, which means, He Causes To Become.
JEHOVAH, caused the Word to be [the First Cause], and through the Word created ALL things physical, this universe, out of NOTHING. Indeed ENERGY can create MATTER out of NOTHING.
JEHOVAH is a Spirit, from the spirit realm, and along with the Word, there are millions of other spirit
beings, some we know as angels or messengers.
Current cosmological understanding is that there are unknown, unseen phenomena, accounting for up to 99% of the universe. Scientists ascribe terms such as Dark Force and Dark Energy to account for these unknown phenomena.
Current cosmological understanding, is that the geometry of the universe is of a flat model. Which
agrees with it being CAUSED from NOTHING.
While Jehovah, who is a Spirit (John 4:24; 2Co 3:17), has always existed, that is not true of the matter of which the universe is made. Hence, when creating the literal heavens and earth, Jehovah did not use pre-existent material. This is from Genesis 1:1, which says: “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” If matter had always existed, it would have been inappropriate to use the term “beginning” with reference to material things.
The Hebrew ba.ra” and the Greek kti’zo, both meaning, “create,” are used exclusively with reference to divine creation.
The things God has created testify not only to his power but also to his Godship. (Jer 10:12; Ro 1:19,20) And as Jehovah “is a God, not of disorder, but of peace” (1Co 14:33); his creative work is marked with orderliness rather than chaos or chance. Jehovah reminded Job that He had taken specific steps in founding the earth and barricading the sea and indicated that there exist “statutes of the heavens” ( Job 38:1, 4-11, 31-33) Furthermore, God’s creative and other works are perfect.- De 32:4; Ec 3:14.
Genesis 1 NW
1 In [the] beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
Isaiah 40 NW
22 There is One who is dwelling above the circle of the earth, the dwellers in which are as grasshoppers, the One who is stretching out the heavens just as a fine gauze, who spreads them out like a tent in which to dwell,
26 “Raise YOUR eyes high up and see. Who has created these things? It is the One who is bringing forth the army of them even by number, all of whom he calls even by name. Due to the abundance of dynamic energy, he also being vigorous in power, not one [of them] is missing.
1 Corinthians 8:6 (American Standard Version)
6 yet to us there is one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we unto him; and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and we through him.
The Word, was sent by JEHOVAH, as a perfect human, Jesus the Christ [Messiah or anointed One]
John 3:16; John 6:38; John 12:49; John 8:42.
