Scientists have known for a long time that space actually stretches. It stretches much like stretchable fabric, very similar to nylon panty hose. Have you ever heard the phrase that scientists use, "the fabric of space"?
Did you know the Bible said this long before scientists understood it?
' It is I who made the earth and created man uponit. I stretched out the heavens with My hands ' Isaiah 45:12
' You have forgotten the LORD your Maker,Who stretched out the heavens and laid the foundations of the earth' Isaiah 51:13
So the prophet Isaiah used scientific language (space stretching) to describe God's creation of the Universe. Since God really did create the Universe and gave us the Bible to know about our origin and to know about Him, we shouldn't be surprised to find such clues hidden in His Word. We may not understand exactly how God created the Universe before Jesus returns, but its important we understand that He did create it, and left us the Bible to know how we got here and to know the God who created us
