I have always loved to look at the different shapes of clouds.
Genesis 9:13 "set My bow in the clouds.
Exodus 13:21 "in a pillar of clouds.
Exodus 20:21 "So the people stood at a distance, while Moses approached the thick cloud where God was." God is in the clouds.
Psalms 105:39 "He spread a cloud for a covering..." Which seems to say, God can control the clouds for His purpose and will to accomplish His will.

God in His wisdom has made all things in the Universe to be and do at His pleasure. The Universe and all that is in it, was by design and plan.
The universe was spoken into being by the mind of God in a moment. Of course, with God there is no time involved. But as I believe in the six-day creation of earth so was the universe spoken into existence.
In the coming weeks I will attempt to study this matter of the creation of origin of the world, earth, universe and mankind. Why? Because God is and He is the creator of all things in the Universe and beyond. (Is there a beyond the universe?)
Of course I will be reading a lot and taking notes and looking into this matter. I will relate this matter to our adult Bible study group on Wednesday Night's in the month of April 2009.
