Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
Space, Matter, Energy
Atoms are the building blocks of all physical reality, Essentially, they are composed of three things--space, matter and energy.
SHAMAYIM- Hebrew word for "heavens" - simply means STRETCHED OUT SPACE!
ERETS - Hebrew word for "earth" - simply means the dirt or MATTER!
Genesis 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void;
When you take the building blocks and build something, you have "form." Before that the "Matter" is without form. The earth was VOID, empty, but the earth was about to take on form.
Genesis 1:3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
Light includes the entire electromagnetic spectrum, not just the narrow band of color we can see. From short wave gamma rays, to long radio waves, all ENERGY forms are accounted for in God's spoken Word - "Let there be light."
God made all three-space, matter and energy-essentials for creating a physical reality.
In a very simple, yet profoundly scientific way, God's first creative act logically defines the basis of all physical reality.
Atoms Scientific "Mystery" - Or God's Wonder
In the nucleus of all atoms (the building blocks of all physical reality) is a scientific "mystery." All the positive-charged protons actually stick together!
However, for example, if you take two bar magnets and try to push the two positive ends so they touch each other instead what happens is they repel each other? The conclusion: the atoms in the universe should fly apart.
But instead, what we find is the positive-charged protons adhere closely in the nucleus of every atom. It seems to be a miracle of "science " that the structure of every atom in the universe does not fly apart. But is it? What does God's Word tell us:
...all things were created by Him (Jesus) and for Him; and He is before all things, and by Him all things consist (or hold together). Colossians 1: 16-17
God, the Supreme scientist, created the building blocks and is the Creator and Maker of all physical reality.
The Bible through its use of the word "day" in the Old Testament tells us each day of God's Creation Week was an ordinary day, thus 6 ordinary days The Bible through the lineage from Adam to Jesus tells us God's Creation Week took place about 6,000 years ago.

Yes Sister Dorothy! He Is Lord! He Is Risen! 6 days! Exodus 20:11-For in 6 days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested on the 7th day...2 verses before that-verse 9 and 10 does NOT say 6 million years you shalt labour and then rest for 1 million years-His Word says days!!! Keep on a preachin' Rev! And God Bless you and your family mightily! Dave
God's Word is THE authoritative truth. Man, because of the nature to sin, often chooses to follow their own imaginations instead of seeking God and His truth. As I have been working on this series, I am in awe of God as He is allowing me to see and hear, become more intimately involved, with the truth and literalness of the Creation Account. An awesome experience! With the guidance and inspiration of the Holy Spirit, I will continue the writing of this series.
Thank you for your comments! Be blessed and let us all be a blessing to others!
