The physical world we live in is governed by specific "laws of nature" that are
understood from experimentation and observation. Those laws and principles were
established by the Lord God Himself, and He said they were very good (Gen 1:31).
Understanding how these laws govern the order and workings of the physical
universe is the pursuit of good science.
Readers should keep firmly in mind, however, that the Lord God, who established
the observed physical laws of nature, is not Himself in subjection to those
laws. The Bible is replete with instances where the Lord God has supernaturally
intervened against the laws of physics and nature…

IN THE BEGINNING...Prologue
* is vital for all known forms of life on Earth…Jesus said that He will give us "Living Water" that we should no more thirst. And God says that He is the "Fountain of Living Waters". (John 4:10 & Jer. 17:13)
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth….(Gen.1:1)
THE STATE OF THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH…
And the earth was without form and void; and darkness was upon the face (surface) of the deep. And the spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.(Gen.1:2)
WATER…God used water to begin the process of creating our world…it was already here (Originated by God sometime beforehand.) Therefore, we should assume that water is a very important element to our Creator...and for us.
* Water is vital for all known forms of life On Earth.
The human body starts out with a composition of 77% water and steadily falls off by year one to around 66% until adult age male about 60% female 55% (more body fat = less water)
(Even our bones contain water)
There went up a mist from the earth and watered the whole face of the ground. (Gen.2:6)
*Note…There was enough water contained within the earth to sustain a viable ecosystem until the time of Noah and the flood. (over 1500 years later) *For the time frame, study the generations from Adam-Noah.
For yet seven days, I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth. (Gen.7:4)
LIGHT: (Part One)
And God said *“Let there be light”: and there was light.
*Note This passage is not referring to solar or lunar ‘light’ since the sun and moon are not yet created.
(From the gospel of John)…
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God…The same was in the beginning with God.
All things were made by him….
In Him was the life; and the life was the LIGHT of men…And that light shone in darkness; and the darkness could not overtake it….9] That was the true Light, (capitalized) which lighteth every man that cometh into the world…( gives life to)
He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. (John 1:1-5 & 9-10)
And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and TRUTH. (John 1:14)
I am the way the truth and the life, no man may come to the Father except by me…(John 14:6)
Thus far we have established that God called forth light to bring life upon the formless, empty waters in order to start the process of preparing our world to sustain life.
When I think of this I see it as if God stepped into his lab and switched the light on in order to begin a new project. But it goes much deeper than that, as we shall see in Part two (Coming soon).
For more scientific information about water continue reading here:
Water is a chemical compound with the chemical formula H2O. A water molecule contains one oxygen and two hydrogen atoms connected by covalent bonds. Water is a liquid at standard ambient temperature and pressure, but it often co-exists on Earth with its solid state, ice, and gaseous state (water vapor or steam). Water also exists in a liquid crystal state near hydrophilic surfaces.Water covers 71% of the Earth's surface, and
* is vital for all known forms of life On Earth.
96.5% of the planet's water is found in seas and oceans, 1.7% in groundwater, 1.7% in glaciers and the ice caps of Antarctica and Greenland, a small fraction in other large water bodies, and 0.001% in the air as vapor, clouds (formed of solid and liquid water particles suspended in air), and precipitation. Only 2.5% of the Earth's water is freshwater, and 98.8% of that water is in ice and groundwater. Less than 0.3% of all freshwater is in rivers, lakes, and the atmosphere, and an even smaller amount of the Earth's freshwater (0.003%) is contained within biological bodies and manufactured products.
Water on Earth moves continually through the water cycle of evaporation and transpiration (evapotranspiration), condensation, precipitation, and runoff, usually reaching the sea. Evaporation and transpiration contribute to the precipitation over land.
