Fourth Revelation - Mystery of the Creation
 The age of the universe is the time elapsed since the Big Bang posited by the most widely accepted scientific model of cosmology. The best current "estimate" of the age of the universe is 13.75 ± 0.11 billion years (4.336 x 1017 secondsin SI units, or 13.75 Gig years) within the Lambda-CDM concordance model.Approximately
14 Billions Years = 7 GOD Days
 Meaning, our time is still in the
7th Day of GOD
from the Day of the Creation
The Trinity in Creation
The Scriptures teach us that God created all thingsboth in the spiritual and physical realms. Mosesinforms us that “In the beginning God created theheaven and the earth” (Genesis 1:1). It is beyonddoubt amongst Bible-believers that God wasresponsible for Creation for there are too manyreferences to suggest otherwise. We find in Isaiah40:28 that He is called the Creator, “Hast thou notknown? hast thou not heard, that the everlastingGod, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth,fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searchingof His understanding.” Clear statements confirmingthis fact are seen also in Isaiah 42:5, “Thus saith Godthe LORD, He that created the heavens, andstretched them out; He that spread forth the earth,and that which cometh out of it; He that givethbreath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein”; Isaiah 45:18, “For thus saith the LORD thatcreated the heavens; God Himself that formed the earth and made it; He hath established it, He created it not in vain,He formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else”; Mark 13:19, “For in those days shall beaffliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be”.The word “created” (bara) is used to describe the activity of God’s exclusivity. As He said in Isaiah 45:18, “I am theLORD; and there is none else”, therefore it is true to say that He alone is the Author of Creation."BARA", In Filipino, there is a word BARA meaningActive Verb: magbara; bumara; Passive Verb: ibara; barahinEnglish Definition: (1) to cause an obstruction (verb)(2) to bar, to hinder, to obstruct something (verb)(3) bar; blockage; obstacleThe method that God used to create the universe was the power of His spoken word. This can be seen in Genesis1:3,6,9,11,14,20,24,26 - “And God said ...” Therefore God spoke the heavens and the earth into existence through theword of His mouth; “By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of Hismouth. He gathereth the waters of the sea together as an heap: He layeth up the depth in storehouses. Let all theearth fear the LORD: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him. For He spake, and it was done; Hecommanded, and it stood fast” (Psalm 33:6-9); “Let them praise the name of the LORD: for He commanded, and theywere created” (Psalm 148:5); “Mine hand also hath laid the foundation of the earth, and my right hand hath spannedthe heavens: when I call unto them, they stand up together” (Isaiah 48:13); “Through faith we understand that the
 
worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear”(Hebrews 11:3).The evidence regarding the divine persons involved in Creation to this point reveals that God created everythingthrough His Word. In the light of the fact that we accept that God is Trinity we should consider whether the Father,Son, and Holy Spirit were united in the work of Creation. As we investigate this we find clear evidence that all threemembers of the Godhead are actively involved in Creation.
The Father’s work in Creation
It is never questioned amongst those who upholdScripture (and to some extent this includes thecults) that God the Father is the Author of creationand that it is the work of His hands and word. Thereferences seen above reveal this fact, yet thereare others which confirm these, “Thus saith theLORD, Thy redeemer, and He that formed theefrom the womb, I am the LORD that maketh allthings; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone;that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself” (Isaiah44:24); “I have made the earth, and created manupon it: I, even my hands, have stretched out theheavens, and all their host have I commanded”(Isaiah 45:12). These are clear statements of directcreation by God.
The Lord Jesus’ work in Creation
Jesus is described as The Word in John 1:1-3, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and theWord was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made.” It is of great significance that John begins his Gospel account with the same words asGenesis, I.e. “In the beginning”. Since we understand that it was through God’s spoken word that all things werecreated it should not surprise us to see that Jesus is “the Word”. But John goes further and tells us that the Word is“God”. Therefore we see Jesus is seen as very much active in the work of creation. So as to emphasis what he intendshis readers to understand the apostle John tells us that the Word - the Lord Jesus Christ created everything that it inthe universe. In fact we are informed by Jesus Himself that He existed before the creative words were spoken,“Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, whichthou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world” (John 17:24). This is why Jesus is called“The Alpha and Omega I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending” (Revelation 1:8).The apostle Paul also reveals that Jesus was the Creator of the universe and all that is in it. We read in Colossians1:16-17, “For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whetherthey be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: and He isbefore all things, and by him all things consist.” The “all things” must include heaven and earth, material and spiritual,visible and invisible. Since only God can create things out of nothing (ex nihilo) we have to agree that Jesus must beGod. In Romans 11:36 we read, “For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever.”Such words can only be applied to the Creator. As Creator Jesus continues to sustain all created things by His power,for it is He that holds the created universe together.Hebrews chapter one offers us further information regarding the work of the Lord Jesus Christ in Creation. In versesone to two we read, “God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by theprophets, hath in these last days spoken unto us by His Son, whom He hath appointed heir of all things, by whom alsoHe made the worlds”. This reveals that there is nothing that Jesus Christ did not make. By combining this with whatJohn said at the start of his Gospel, how that “without him was not any thing made that was made” we come to aclear conclusion to what Jesus’ role was in Creation.
 
 We begin to see clearly that God created everything there is, and that He “created all things by Jesus Christ”(Ephesians 3:9). We learn from these verses that God the Father created everything, and that God the Son createdeverything. Not only are we presented with further evidence of Christ’s divinity, but also the existence of the Trinity.
The Holy Spirit’s work in Creation
We have to not have to dig very far into God’s word before we come face to face with the activity of the Holy Spirit inCreation. Genesis 1:2 reads, “And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep.And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.” Everything was without form until the Holy Spirit began tomove over the face of the waters. This is not an “active force” but the active presence of Almighty God. The word“Spirit” comes from the
Hebrew “ruach” (sometimes translated ‘breath’).
The Holy Spirit gives life to the otherwiselifeless creation. Job informs us, “The spirit of God hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life”(33:4), therefore He is the Life-giver in relation to the total work of the six days of Creation."
RUACH
", In Filipino, there is a word
"LUWA"
and
"KALULWA"
meaningLUWA - Duwa, dura, lura; English Definition: (verb) to belch out; to spit out; to protrudeKALULWA - kaluluwa, tao, katao: n. soul, spirit, manWhat we see happening is that God created the universe through the power of His Holy Spirit. This is exactly whatPsalm 104:30 tells us, “Thou sendest forth Thy spirit, they are created: and thou renewest the face of the earth”, or asJob 26:13 says, “By His spirit He hath garnished the heavens”.Now we see a fuller picture of what the Godhead’s work was during the six days of creation. They worked in unity.Each part of creation was a sovereign act of each member of the Trinity. None of it would have been producedwithout the co-operation of each one. Psalm 33:6 explains this in a nutshell, “By the word of the LORD were theheavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of His mouth”. Nevertheless the first chapter of Genesis, whenseen in the light of other Scriptures, reveal that God the Father spoke the Word (Jesus Christ is that Word) and theHoly Spirit moved. Creation was the will of God - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
