Before there were galaxies, solar systems, constellations, and nebulae — there was God!
Before Mercury, Venus, and Mars were plugged into their sockets — there was God!
Before Polaris was fastened above the North Pole — there was God!
Before Orion the hunter had a belt, and Saturn had its rings — there was God; All alone, perfect and content, glorious in His solitary existence as the eternal I AM!
Before there was a sun, a moon, or an earth; before there was grass to clothe the field, and flowers to adorn it; before the mountains were brought forth, and the sea filled the depths; before the eagle soared through the sky, and the fish swam through the sea; before angels, devils, and men had their being — there was God alone!
If we would understand things aright, we must not begin with man, but with God, for He is the beginning of all things. To begin with man is folly, for man is but a creature, a production of the Creator. We must back up and begin where the Bible begins, with God!
God's people know, and have always known, what continues to baffle the minds of the scholars and scientists of our day, that "in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." Through faith, God's people understand the mystery of creation.
