The Logos

God’s peerless power, a direct result of His perfect and unrivalled love, manifested itself in the Creation. In the beginning, God’s supreme love created the heavens and the earth. But, how did this love actually create the heavens and the earth? God commanded the heavens and the earth into existence from nothing, as the word creation suggests.

Gen. 1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

Then His Spirit, His wind, His breath caused the tiny universe to explode outward. The Bible does not say specifically whether He spoke to begin the outward journey of the universe. However, that assumption might be valid as other scriptures indicate.

Gen. 1:2 The earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters.

Then, God caused His spiritual vocal folds to vibrate with words so loudly and strongly that matter and energy instantly came into existence; the nescient world began.

Psa. 33:6 By the word of the LORD the heavens were made, And by the breath of His mouth all their host.

God said, light! And, it was so.

The Word

In linguistics, we learn that a word is a group of sounds with meaning, i.e., an idea behind the sounds, phonemes. Word, e.g., has three sounds: w, er, and d. For some, the er could be a sound like uh, depending on how much an r sound a person uses. Nonetheless, the important thing to remember is words have meaning, an idea behind the sounds. Words have, in fact, several types of meaning: denotative, connotative, and historic. History indeed has a history:

ORIGIN late Middle English (also as a verb): via Latin from Greek historia ‘finding out, narrative, history,’ from hist_r ‘learned, wise man,’ from an Indo-European root shared by wit.
