Working at the speed of God, God created space in the 24 hours that constituted Day 2 of creation (Genesis 1:6-8). Then in another 24 hours that constituted Day 4 of creation (Genesis 1:14-19), God populated space completely, to form our universe. This is why God said in the Book of Isaiah: “My own hand laid the foundations of the earth, and my right hand spread out the heavens; when I summon them, they all stand up together” (Isaiah 48:13). The last sentence alludes to God’s commands in Genesis Chapter One which brought each of the creations into existence.

The Bible says that our entire Universe fits into God’s mighty hand (Isaiah 40:12); and rotates in God’s hand (2 Peter 3:8), suspended over nothing (Job 26:7). The Bible also says that our earth is right in the center of the universe (Isaiah 40:15) (Genesis 1:6-8), further confirming that the universe was created for the purpose of the humanity, and not humanity resulting from some freak accident of nature. The Bible says that the space has a rigid framework—supported by pillars the same way we support heavy framework in our earthly structures. Here is that passage from the Bible: “The pillars of the heavens quake, aghast at his rebuke.” (Job 26:11). And this quaking of the pillars of the space is a reference to the cataclysmic explosion of Day 4 of creation (Genesis 1:14-19) which rocked space, and reverberated throughout its expanse, bringing the universe to life.

Nature was created to give humanity support and stability, not because of our value and contributions in the larger scheme of things—because we do measure up to anything—but because of God’s love for mankind. The entire universe was designed to provide stability, and safety to the human race. Just as our sun powers the earth and all the planets revolvi
