Hi, I'm Becca. I'm a follower of Jesus who decided to write a blog one day. Please leave comments and tell me what you think.
"The God who made the world and all things in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands; nor is He served by human hands, as though He needed anything, since He Himself gives to all people life and breath and all things" (Acts 17:24-25 NASB).

When Genesis 1:7 and Culture Collide
Do you remember the post I made about the “separation
between the waters”? See below for more!
Genesis 1:7: “Between
the Waters That Are Below the Dome and the Waters That Are Above the Dome”
God made the dome, he made a separation between the
waters that are below the domeand between the
waters that are above the dome. And it was so.”
This verse represents what happened after God and
spoke this dome into existence. We
briefly touched on the waters below the dome and the waters above the dome last
time, but I thought I’d spell it out a little more in today’s post.
Check out this helpful chart to see this more
visually. Notice the “windows” in the dome separating the waters above from everything
below. The “waters above” are released through these windows (or openings)
during the flood narrative as rain, and the fountains of the great deep burst
forth (see Genesis 6:11).
Lend Me Your Thoughts
What do you make of this “ancient Hebrew cosmology”
stuff? I’m interested in hearing what you have to say.
