The Big Bang And The Truth
Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. (Hebrews 11:3)
When I was a student at the University of Michigan, I took a logic class. The professor sought to "enlighten" our young minds with his ideas about the origin of life on earth. He explained Darwin's theory of evolution as if it were fact. He began at the top of the food chain and worked down. Mankind, he said, evolved from some kind of chimpanzee. The chimp evolved from a less defined type of mammal, etc., etc., etc. Finally, he told us that every living thing, including the earth on which we stand, came to be because of a big bang. Since I was in a logic class, I raised my hand with what I considered to be a very logical question. “So, where did the energy from the big bang come from?”
The professor didn’t appreciate my logic because although he was attempting to describe the process of how God created things, he was trying to divorce God from His creation. Every thoughtful person will eventually ask, “How did we get here?” Scientists have come up with theories, but the Word of God gives us the truth of the matter.
Hebrews 11:3 tells us, “Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.” The word that is translated framed is katartizo in Greek. It means prepared. The worlds were prepared by the Word (rhema) of God!
The writer of Hebrews confirmed the account of creation in Genesis. God spoke the world into existence. When God said, “Let there be light,” light was. Every material thing on this planet existed in the spiritual before it was manifest in the natural.
Practical Application – Before Henry Ford created an automobile, God knew how to do it. Mr. Ford got the idea before he opened his first factory, and he most assuredly spoke about it before one Model A ever rolled off the assembly line!
