All means All!

John 1:1-3 ,“ In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made”.
You may have heard that Scientists have made a major breakthrough recently. The headline read Cosmic alchemy: Colliding neutron stars show us how the universe creates gold. The Universe made gold all by itself. Of course, this all happened millions of years ago. I watched the video, of a reenactment of what the stars looked like, sort of….. it was a computer-generated recreation and the beautiful golden particles were streaming from the collision. It all looked very convincing. Then I realized that it was made up. The gentleman that was explaining how the gold was formed, almost teared up with his realization that his grandfather’s pocket watch in his pocket was probably formed from this very process that he believed to be true. How does this happen? Are we really to believe this theory just because someone could duplicate it on a computer? God already told us how gold was made. He made it, and He liked it so much that He made the streets of Heaven out of it! In fact the entire City is made of Gold. I do believe that Heaven was there before the world we know was made.
Why is it so difficult for us to believe God created the Heaven and the Earth? He spoke it into existence. It certainly makes more sense than what Science has given us so far. It takes way more faith to believe that our amazing bodies and God’s nature was just a mere accidental collision of some sort. How can detail as we see it be from an accident? I am still in awe of how a baby is perfectly knit in the womb. It’s a miracle. So many things could go wrong, but over and over we see how one living cell is fertilized and divides and divides again, and after just a few short weeks, the blood and circulatory system, powered by the heart, together form the first organ system. These are essential to carry nutrients and waste around the embryo to keep its cells alive. Throughout our lives, the heart continues carrying out the vital job of pumping blood around our body. It’s no accident. God spoke our world into existence. It is the hand of God that shaped the first man and breathed the breath of life into him. It is the hand of God that keeps the world in balance, although we are seeing that because of our disobedience nature is deteriorating but it is the love of God that allows his creation to search for Him and find Him. The Psalmist puts it so eloquently. Psalm 8:3-6 “When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars which you have ordained, what is man that You are mindful of him and the son of man that You visit him? For you have made him a little lower than the angels, and You have crowned him with glory and honor. You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet.” I can’t explain it, but I believe it because God said it, and all means all.
