I have heard many say that the Bible is not a scientific book in any way. I must disagree as I find scientific fact all throughout the King James Bible. Let’s look at the opening statements carefully and thoughtfully.
Genesis 1:1-3… “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.”
Let’s put each under the microscope of logical contemplation.
“IN THE BEGINNING (here, linear time itself is begun) GOD (the Prime Mover in all things and Ultimate Creator of all things) CREATED (ex-nihilo – everything from nothing) THE HEAVEN (space is now made available to be filled; with…) AND THE EARTH (…with matter itself).
AND THE EARTH WAS WITHOUT FORM (consequently and by its essential creation from nothing, the earth (matter itself) was yet undifferentiated and without true form), AND VOID (and thus empty of any content); AND DARKNESS (absolute zero – no molecular or wave form motion of any sort) WAS UPON THE FACE OF THE DEEP (the physically substantial building blocks of physical reality as we know it are now in place, ready to obey and be formed to the will of our Creator).
AND THE SPIRIT OF GOD (the Holy Spirit itself) MOVED (with any motion comes frictional heat energy thus the universal temperature energetically rises above zero K and molecules are formed for the first time) UPON THE FACE OF THE WATERS (the first meaningful substance, water, is formed out of the un–substantive and as of yet un–formed, though extant, deep).
AND GOD SAID (Gods spoken Words, the Word of God, Jesus Christ, IS creative power, John 1:1-3, Col 1:16-17), LET THERE BE LIGHT (full spectrum electromagnetic radiation – vibration or particular/wave “motion” itself): AND THERE WAS LIGHT (the universe, (space, matter in motion over time, energy); is prepared to be filled with the content of Gods imagination).
God continued to speak the content of our universe into existence for 6 literal days and nights, culminating with the first human beings created in Gods own image, Adam and Eve.
Genesis 1:27… “So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them.”
God gave man dominion over His living creation and for sustenance gave man (and beast – Gen 1:29-30) vegetation to eat. Living breathing things were all vegan in the beginning! God then examined ALL that He had made and deemed it to be “very good”.
Gen 1:31… “And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.”
It is most interesting to note that all who physically consumed food were vegan by nature. Why is this? It is because physical death had not yet entered into Gods “very good” creation. The creation did not know nor comprehend death as the creation was ultimately sustained by God Himself and the input of energy (His Spirit moving) which He provided the universe. Adam and Eve (and all the animals) were created to live for and in eternity, not ever seeing death. Original creation was perfectly eternal; perfectly sustained. The world was a very different place in antediluvian times.
As in the last post I wrote that Perfection and imperfection were completely incompatible; that one of necessity annihilates the other. Yet in the Garden we find Adam and God living in communion with one another, God having placed Adam personally in the Garden He created for him. Adam had not yet disobeyed the single command God gave him. Sin (imperfection) had not yet separated man from his Creator.
The animals at the time before the fall must, of logical necessity, have been remarkably friendly and approachable; given to Adam each to name and have careful dominion over. It is only after the great flood as punishment for the worlds sin, and Noah’s subsequent exit from the Ark, that the animals were made to fear man.
Genesis 9:2… “And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered.”
Indeed, it is here that animal flesh is for the first time on mankind’s menu (Gen 9:3). What has changed? Death has entered Gods perfect eternal creation. Imperfection has come into contact with Perfection and Perfection is no longer…
Romans 5:12… “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:”
With a single act of disobedience (man choosing satan over his Creator) the universe lost the sustaining energetic influence God had over it and began to die what is scientifically known as “heat death”; the inevitable result of entropy in a closed system which our universe is, no matter how large. Everything, everywhere is winding down as matter and energy cannot be created or destroyed; just altered with net losses toward the lowest form of energy; heat.
God, in nothing but perfectly infinite wisdom, created a universe where nothing was to die, all creation was to live eternally with Him; instituted death to eventually free His creation once again. Paul explains the resurrection in…
1 Corinthians 15:36… “Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die:”
Quickened means “made alive” and “revived”! We “sow” earthly bodies which are spiritually dead prior to salvation. Praise God for the death of our earthly bodies… as if not for physical death we should be trapped forever in a physically sinful condition (saved or not). It is the physical death of the saved (spiritually alive) man which releases him from his sinful physical condition and places him into renewed and eternally perfect fellowship with his Perfect Creator, to one day be given a glorified perfected eternal body as Christ possessed after His own resurrection.
God began by creating a perfectly flawless universe. He called it very good. It was destroyed willfully by man and angel. Death and decay is our collective fault. God however, will once again bring all His creation back into physical perfection with Himself, for those who are made spiritually perfect in Christ. Have you trusted Christ as your Savior? It was His intent from the start; and from there it is the imagination of God Himself which will plot the infinite and eternal course. I for one cannot wait to join Him in His next “adventure”!
Ephesians 1:10… “That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:”
The Bible is chock full of science fact and Paul warns us of science falsely so called; speaking to his son in Christ, Timothy:
1 Timothy 6:20-21.. “O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called: Which some professing have erred concerning the faith. Grace be with thee. Amen.”
Science “falsely so called” would be the satanic (yes, satanic and not just “darwinian”) doctrine of evolution which tries to demonstrate creation as its own creator… that existence itself exists by accident alone and morphs itself into impossibly highly specialized and ever increasing states of functionality. “Ye shall be as gods…” Ridiculous on its face (and so horribly sad and empty) yet so many believe the lie. I want to alter your views toward the creation side of the creation/evolution debate if you are not with me already.
