Earth and the Creation

"In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth."
~~Genesis 1:1

This week our institute class started studying the Old Testament. I began reading the book of Genesis. The Creation of the world and of life is amazing to me, and though I may not be certain on many things I can be certain that the Lord created all things!

For those who don't know...the Book of Mormon is what we believe to be another Testament of Jesus Christ with revelations given to prophets who lived on the American Continent during the same time the prophets in the Bible were receiving revelations. The same signs and prophesies of Christ's birth, life and death were seen all around the world; the prophets in America kept a record and those records were translated to be the Book of Mormon....they testify of Christ, not of Mormon. Mormon was one of the final prophets who compiled the records and dedicated his life to preserve the records approximately sixteen hundred years ago. Anyways I love a scripture in the Book of Mormon when King Benjamin is addressing his people and the scripture states:

"Believe in God; believe that he is, and that He created all things , both in heaven and in earth; believe that he has all wisdom, and all power, both in heaven and in earth; believe that man doth not comprehend all things which the Lord can comprehend." ~~ Mosiah 4:9

Tonight I rented the movie Earth by Disney. It was incredible! The scenery is fantastic! I watched in awe thinking about the creation, and how majestic our Earth is and how much beauty surrounds us! There is no creature too small that He doesn't know, because He created all things!
I recommend you watch the movie and think of the Creation I promise you will feel something great!
