|When Did Time Begin?
"In the beginning God..."
The "beginning?" When was that? Only God himself
It's sort of like when you begin a construction
project. What do you start with? Basic materials, of
course, like lumber, nails and paint. But what raw
materials did God provide first?
ATOMS? What are they? The building blocks of all
physical reality, atoms are composed essentially of
the words of Genesis 1:1:
the beginning [right at the start]
it up, and you'll find the original Hebrew word
! God even had to make the empty space in
original word there for earth is ERETS (Hebrew
form and void."
! When you take the blocks and build
physical structure of matter had apparently not
to imagine formlessness.....
Try to imagine formlessness
And then, in that same creative instant, God Said:
"Let There Be Light!"
Light includes the entire electromagnetic spectrum,
not just the narrow band of color we "see." From short
wave gamma rays, to long radio waves, electromagnetic
radiation includes a vast range of frequencies spanning
at least 75 octaves. Visible light occupies only one
octave of this range. So what do we now have?
Is this not the third aspect of all physical things?
At the instant that matter was energized, basic elements
took on specific form. Particles were now in motion
and operating in TIME.
Think! When physical matter ceases to be, time
shall be no more. In a very simple, yet profoundly
scientific way, the Genesis account of God's first creative
act logically defines the basis of all physical reality:
Space, Matter & Energy
But there's more! Electromagnetic energy is at the
of all physical matter. Atoms are held together by complex
electric and magnetic forces, providing form and
structure to the universe. All chemical elements took
form when God said "Let there be light!" He initiated the
physical laws that govern all forms of matter.
One of the mysteries of creation is the amount of
energy "locked up" in the atoms. Man has been able to
release some of the energy for use in atomic power
plants and atom bombs, but think of the total amount
of energy required to put together all the physical
matter in the universe. For lack of clear evidence, some
materialistic thinkers have theorized that there must be
an invisible thing they call "gluons" to hold it all together.
It seems a miracle of "science" that the structure of
every atom in the universe doesn't fly apart.
Scientist once used the "Cloud Model" to depict
the atom. Now
they realize the atom is far more complex than they first
imagined. The simplified "Planetary Model" was popular for
most of the 20th century. The recently developed" Lucas
Model" has no orbiting electrons, permitting the atom to remain
stable with electric and electromagnetic forces in equilibrium.
What Does the Bible Say?
"...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)."
