The Invisible Became Visible

In the beginning, God was pregnant with the universe and all things were made by Him. But how did these things come out of Him? How was the universe formed? All things were formed at God's command. He spat them out poof! From the invisible came the visible. Things that are seen came from things that were unseen.

By faith we understand that the universe was  formed at God's command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible (Hebrews 11:3).

God always had everything in Him, but we couldn't see it. All we now see was once in an invisible state. (Please note that invisible does not mean nonexistent.)

All the buildings we see and the businesses we frequent people making money and investing money all that stuff began as ideas. We couldn't see them because they were in somebody's mind. The stores where we shop, also everything on the shelves and racks in those stores, began as ideas in someone's mind. They didn't exist before, yet they did. Although they weren't present in their current form, they existed as d pulleys and lumber and concrete and nails, cotton and wool and flax, steel and motors.

Someone had an idea. Through work they put their idea into things that are visible. Today they take your money. Everything starts in the invisible state. Everything we now see used to be unseen. 

In the beginning there was only God. At creature the entire unseen universe became visible. Everything that has been created was made by the word of God. Although it already existed, God spoke so that what was invisible could become visible. You would never have known it existed, except God spat it out in faith. 

By faith God spat out what was in him. Everything in Him started to come forth. What we now see was birthed by God from what was invisibly within Him. Whatever you see came from the unseen nothing exists that was not some time in God. Thus, faith is not the evidence of things that do not exist. It is the evidence of things that are not yet seen. Everything we see has always been.
