From Eternity to Time

Genesis 1:1-4

The Beginning1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness.     (NIV) biblegateway.com

An otherness which was marked by unknown characteristics in unknown parameters registered mostly blankness and mystery outside of time. But God worked at a creative task: considering, bringing forth and establishing, where chance and random force and counter force grayly pitter pattered on newly God wrought objects. On the earth, formless and void, the deep hid all from view beneath a cloak of darkness. 

An ocean of wetness tossed and swirled and sometimes more still, matched the emptiness beyond, the absence of universe which was soon to be made part of a new everything, produced by powerful and matchless decree. 

Without warning or foreshadowing, a voice split the atomic wilderness and while utterance rang out, a shard of light burst in anxious response, the first explosive violence of a spawning universe. The pyrotechnics unprecedented advanced out, morphing into galaxies, blowing forth in waves of surfing zygote stars and light prevailing over darkness. Matter and form flew out in endless competition. And the Spirit of God all the while watched as newly weighted forces and counter forces jockeyed to pull in the wild and free and empty 'rock and roll' of galaxies and suns. And the light blazed out, far and wide.

The matter in space twisted and strained and was set in place as if by invisible strings, placed in wild and free and constraned order. And God acted in time to spin and shape our planet and establish its new and untrod passage through space, so spinning its flight as to separate the light from darkness.
