Genesis 1:6-8 Let There Be A Firmament, Part One
And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so. And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.
There are many naysayers that condemn the Word of G-d based on this verse. Over the next couple of days, we will dig into this verse and dispel its controversy.
To start out, the Hebrew word, rawkeeah, translated as firmament can be interpreted as an expanse or a solid dome. Which one is correct? Can both be correct? After we are through, you are going to ask, "What was the big deal about this verse? Why all the controversy? I'm going to tip my hand and tell you that both interpretations are correct and shows that there has to be a G-d and he is in control.
