When we think of the distant starlight “problem” we might try to imagine God calling creation into being, or we might think how the big bang explains everything. Whether you believe the latter or the former I strongly suggest you read the following theory with great attention.
- God made the light first on day one (fact)
- God made stars on day four (fact)
- God spoke light into existence (fact)
- God spoke light into existence in every corner of the universe (theory)
Now, I know you have that image of God speaking light into existence and the light coming from His mouth but that doesn’t hold up to the Bible.
We find that God said “Let there be light” and there was light. It never says that the light came from God’s mouth or that it has a starting, physical point. We find that the word used for “Let there be” is the Hebrew word hayah. And we find this amazing word in Exodus 3:14. Read this verse that supports this theory so well.
“And God said unto Moses, “I AM (hayah) THAT I AM (hayah):” and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.”
And when we look into the use of I AM we find that God is referring to His unlimited power in everything (for further research go to “I Am” God’s Unlimited Power). It sure is amazing that He used the same word to describe the entering of light.
See, the whole point of this theory is that when God created light it did not have a starting, physical point, nor an ending, physical point, it just goes on forever. In short, when God said “Let there be light” the entire universe was filled with light because, in a way, the starting point of light was everywhere.
Then, when God made the stars the already created light would be at earth and coming from the stars at the same time. Thus giving us perfect, timely visions of these stars, galaxies, etc.
