A.W. Tozer Sermon – The Great God of All Creation

17 verses in the Bible state that God expanded the size of the Universe from its original size. What affect did that have on time, and on red and blue shift?

The current estimate is there are 390 billion galaxies, each having an average of 100 billion stars — our sun being an average sized star. And some think the universe may be infinite, because the more we improve our telescopes the more galaxies we see. What does that tell us about God, and how impossible this could have been done without God? Imagine the gravitational pull of all of that matter compressed before the “big bang,” before it shot out by chance, propelled by nothing.

I don’t understand the time-was-changed theory (proposed by some creationists), but the appearance of age theory makes the most sense to me: God “stretched out the heavens” in a day, just like he made the trees mature in a day too. Adam and Eve didn’t start out as an embryo either. God just made it and then that way. Nothing is too big or difficult for God.

Why can’t we accept God could have done with the universe and light if we accept He made 390 billion galaxies? It’s like limiting what God can do: “He could have made 390 billion galaxies, but couldn’t have done it all in a day, stretching them so light came to Earth from all of them right after He created them” — the universe completed all in 6 days, just like the Bible said.

This shows more of the greatness of God — how He is so far above our human understanding, and how His Word should be accepted, even when we don’t like or can’t fully comprehend what it says, like the way being really narrow and few finding it.

God isn’t meant to be fully understood this side of heaven, but what He says must be obeyed. We don’t have to understand it all, but we can be in awe, and fully submit: Abba Father. You are awesome, and I will follow you all the days of my life.

17 verses in the Bible state that God expanded
the size of the Universe from its original size.
What affect did that have on time, and on red and blue shift?

Seven books of the Bible reference this event starting from about 1000 BC in the book of Psalms, to about 518 BC in the book of Zechariah (a span of almost 500 years).  This “stretching” of the universe was done during the creation week described in Genesis.  Dr. Russell Humphreys suggests in his book Starlight and Time that it may have given the universe an older look the farther you move away from Earth into the outermost reaches of the universe.  From Earth’s perspective, the universe would be about 6,000 – 10,000 years old.  However, in the outermost reaches of the universe, this rapid expansion may have given those galaxies the appearance of being billions of years old, even though they aged that much in what is most likely less than 24 hours.

Current evolutionary thinking suggests that the universe is still expanding.  This is based in large part of the belief that ‘red shift’ indicates that the stars and galaxies are moving away from each other.  However, Isaiah 40:22 seems to suggest that this expanding of the galaxies was a one time event that occurred in a very short amount of time (probably in less than 24 hours), and that the expansion may no longer be occurring.  Tents and curtains don’t keep expanding once they’re fully opened up. They are finite in size. 

[It is] he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof [are] as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in:
– Isaiah 40:22

Furthermore, none of these Bible verses appear to suggest that this expansion is still going on.  

Do scientists really know what the impact would be of having the universe expanded at what was most likely millions or even billions of times faster than the speed of light?  How would such a rapid expansion affect the visible red and blue shift we see today in space?  How would that affect time, especially at the outer edges of the universe?  Could the red shift that evolutionists believe indicates an expanding universe actually be the result of this rapid stretching of the universe that started and ended about 6,000 years ago?

WHAT IF I TOLD YOU that the version of HISTORY you were taught in school, was heavily REVISED to favor your own nations’ agenda while HIDING ITS CRIMES and in doing so fostered an unrealistic sense of false patriotism used to MANUFACTURE YOUR ALLEGIANCE to a corporate entity masquerading as your government?

Very well said — and I prove this at ToBeFree (see Related, below)

Church history in most Christian schools and seminaries has been altered too.
