Psalm 33:6 By the Lord’s decree the heavens were made; by a mere word from his mouth all the stars in the sky were created. :7 He piles up the water of the sea; he puts the oceans in storehouses. (NET) The power of God is beyond finite limited human comprehension, especially with sin-damaged minds. Consider these two verses. By a mere word from God all the billions and billions of stars were made. Such is God's power. The piled up water? The oceans we see, of course. The oceans in storehouses? Well, what are they only recently discovering below the surface of the earth and below the oceans themselves? Now think about the world-wide flood of Noah's time and be amazed at first the Word, then the abounding evidence. See this link

When the rainbow story was read, I used to think: "What does He mean DESTROY the earth again with a flood?  All He did was kill everything on it, maybe poke a h*** or two."  Then I saw this in Genesis last night: "ALL the fountains of the deep were BROKEN open."  That creates a different picture.  Am going to see what footage we have of abyss'es, thanks for the ref. to Psalm 33 also.  Steve, I know you study these things.  Do you have an opinion of whether it is possibly water rather than iron that creates our magnetic field?

Steve, I am not quite sure what it is about the "way" you have interpreted this verse that is so unusual or unacceptable. Seems to me that what you are saying is right in line with sound hermeneutics, that keeps in mind the nature of the literature. For centuries people have read this verse and understood it to refer to the Oceans, as you noted, and then also to all the places in which God stores the waters - which would include in the ice and snow, in mountains and ice caps, and in the waters beneath the earth, and to the waters above the heavens, and to the fountains of the great deep, and to waters in the clouds.

And now science has confirmed what we have always known from the Scriptures.

Steve, While I agree with you enthusiasm, the problem is no one else before this discover interpreted that verse this way. And it's very poetic, which also lends to multiple interpretations.

What is astounding to me also is this - though God created the stars (trillions of them) by a "mere word," yet for OUR PLANET and our Sun and our Moon, and life here - OUR GOD took His time, spending six days on the task, and forming man of the dust of the ground and directly breathing into his nostrils the breath of life. The rest of the universe: POOF by a proverbial snap of His fingers; but us and our planet - special attention.

There is nothing impersonal or distant or disinterested or remote in God's special care in making this planet for us, and us for HIM!
