The Latin word “Ex Nihilo” (yesh me-ayin in Hebrew), means out of nothing, and is used to describe God’s creation of the universe and His forming of life from nothingness. Let us therefore ask this question: Can something actually be created out of nothing? Rationally, our minds would tell us no. But if we believe—by faith—that God created the universe ex nihilo, which is both irrational and seemingly impossible to comprehend, then we can also conclude that the universe cannot continue to exist apart from the One who created it.
“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1:1, NKJV).
Be-reisheet, in the beginning the Lord God made all things perfect. Each living organism on earth divinely planned and woven into the most remarkable fabric of creation; a living tapestry of God’s artwork. Every detail carefully and methodically executed by the wisdom of God, for a creation without wisdom would be chaos.
