Creatio Ex Nihilo – Creation out of nothing

Written By: CK Quarterman - Jul• 30•11

The magnificent, omnipotent (all powerful), omniscient (all knowing), and omnipresent (present everywhere) Godhead called into existence the space time universe.

When God created, he created space and time; there was no time before creation. God is eternal; he exists outside time and space, he is the “ high and lofty One who inhabits eternity”. He stands outside of time. Time was created along with the universe and began at a finite point “Creatio Ex Nihilo” out of nothingness with the big-bang. To the casual observer the moment of creation would appear as a single point of energy or singularity. This singularity would be the result of having the entire cosmos compressed in the words of God, hence the big-bang model of the universe. When God spoke the words they exploded into all of the known and unknown elements, the fires of the suns, the darkness, and the cold. Neither darkness nor light existed before creation Ex Nihilo. God made the cosmos by mere will of having it to exist.

Creation occurred “ex deo”, or out of the very substance of God. Everything that exists exists because of God created it with his very own substance and nature. God created from nothingness. We are all in a way His children because of this creative act, and perhaps we even had preexistence within the depths of God.

Before creation, God was all that there was, there was no darkness, void or non-existent space. God made the universes by mere will of having them appear, without any use of pre-existent matter.

Man does not know how vast creation is. There are realms and dimensions of existence without number and realities that cannot be measured.

Time is something that is exclusive to this realm in which you live. Eternity is not bound by time. I live in this eternity along with other brothers in man’s defense. God lives in eternity which has no beginning and no end. Before time, there was only eternity, and for God eternity is a never-ending present. God can see what is happening anywhere in the Universe at any given time, past, present or future. God sees it in its entire entirety at once!

Throughout history, there have been times when Divinity has entered this plane of reality. ~ CK Quarterman

It could hardly escape notice that mans understanding of God’s timelessness does not go well with his belief that God once assumed finite, human form in Christ Jesus. Theologians refer to this as the “ Absolute Paradox”; the presence of the Divinity (God) in time, how God could enter time without ceasing to be the Eternal. How could the creator become the creature and subject Himself to time? Fortunately he tells us how, Christ Jesus, who subsisting in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God, but emptied [κενόω] Himself, taking the form of a slave, having become in the likeness of men and being found in fashion as a man. The KJV says that he made himself of no reputation [κενόω]. The word used here is ken-o’-o and it means to empty. Christ Jesus – God emptied Himself of the prerogatives of Divinity, in Jesus he was unable to be everywhere at once and subjected himself to the Absolute Paradox!
