What is Creation?

Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:

(Isaiah 46:10) KJV

What is creation the verb, not creation the noun? The act of creation. Maybe we should say creating? Where does creating start? From nothing? Or is it the transformation of one form into another?

For thus says the LORD, who created the heavens (he is God!), who formed the earth and made it (he established it; he did not create it empty, he formed it to be inhabited!): “I am the LORD, and there is no other.

(Isaiah 45:18) ESV

Part of the meaning of the word translated as “formed” is pictured by how a potter shapes a hollow vessel from a solid lump of clay. It would appear from the way in which the words create and creation are used in the Bible, plus the context of particle physics which we can deduce, that it means to change from one form to another. It doesn’t mean to cause to appear from nothing.

Creation is the supernatural cause of the universe, a sequentially more complex ordering of a pre-existent body of water called “the deep” which obeys all physical laws including the first law of thermodynamics which states that energy can be transformed from one form to another, but can be neither made to appear from nothing nor be destroyed. The Bible clearly states that God became the universe, the Word became flesh, through the person of Jesus Christ. (Ex Abyssi).

There is no statement in scripture which says that God created the universe from nothing (Ex Nihilo).

– Creation, definition

This means that creation is deterministic as opposed to indeterminate. You have to know what you want to create before you start. Declaring the end from the beginning. God knew what the end result had to be, so that’s how he knew how to make the creation.

We can refer to creation from the waters of the deep ax creation Ex abyssi.

If you don’t know what you want to make before you start, then you won’t have what you need.

Once you have what you need you can begin the process.

At first it might be very difficult to discern what you’re aiming for.

That’s why you have to know what the end result is going to be before you start. That’s the deterministic part.

Finishing the process is only possible if you knew what you were going to create before you started.

The purpose of creation is to bring about the permanent physical separation of light from darkness, day from night, good from evil.

The reason for creation is the manifestation of sentient life with free will.
