Genesis 1:2
In Genesis 1:2: "Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness
was over the surface of the deep; and the Spirit of God was hovering
over the waters."
In Psalm 33:6: "By the word of the Lord were the heavens made,
their starry hosts by the breath of His mouth."
Today we talk about the creative work of the Spirit of God.
wrote in the second century: "There are 1,022 stars. Less
than three hundred years ago Galileo invented the telescope." He said:
"The sun which has all those planets revolving about and depending upon
it for their orderly functions can ripen a bunch of grapes as if it had
nothing else in the world to do." I'm glad he said that. Yet 660
years before Christ, 800 years before the best scientist of his day
announced there were 1,022 stars, Jeremiah wrote: "The hosts of heaven
cannot numbered" in Jeremiah 33:22. Who taught Jeremiah astronomy?
And now we know there are hundred of sextillions (a sextillion is
twenty-one zeros) of stars moving in their orbits at blinding speeds
and yet the mathematical probability of any two of those hundreds of
sextillions of stars ever colliding is so remote it cannot be figured
with present day mathematical tools. It's mind-boggling the things
being discovered in God's creation. We can almost understand when
Lewis Grizzard said of his grandmother: "She thinks wrestling is real
and the moonwalk is a fake."
Well, how did it all get here? More than a few scientists today
believe the idea that things were created by a Creator who cares about
our universe was fine for another era but now we believe the universe
came into being by the most remote of chances. All seem to agree that
there are two choices of the origin of our universe and ourselves.
Both science and scripture agree on this. What now exists was not.
Something or someone caused them to happen and there are two choices.
There's the Creator or there's chance.
