IN THE BEGINNING
In the beginning, (NOT SIX THOUSAND YEARS AGO) God created the Heaven and the Earth.
Genesis 1:1 "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth."
John 1:1 "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2, The same was in the beginning with God.
3, All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made."
When was in the beginning?
God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost are eternal beings, no beginning and no end!
The Word, who became flesh, Jesus Christ (John 1:14), about 2,000 years ago has been creating since all eternity past and He and His Father will continue to work for ever!
John 5:17 "John 5:17, "But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work."
About This Image.
Hubble revisited its iconic "Pillars of Creation" image with this sharper and wider view of pillars in the Eagle Nebula.
The towering pillars are about 5 light-years tall, bathed in the blistering ultraviolet light from a group of young, massive stars located off the top of the image. Stars are being born deep inside the pillars, which are made of cold hydrogen gas laced with dust.
Five light years tall. Five light years is the time / distance it takes light travel at the speed of 186,000 miles per second in five years.
This small Galaxy is one of countless bright lights we see as stars seen throughout the universe, is 200,000 light years across!
The above 200,000 light years wide Galaxy, and the one visible just below it in the same picture are just two of many in this here picture. See if you can find them?
Praise God for ever more!
Did God create this vast Universe full of innumerable stars and planets for nothing? Is this Universe empty? I don't think so!
Revelation 12:12, "Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, (plural),and ye that dwell in them, (Plural),Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.
