What were the means that Yahuwah used to bring the heavens and the earth into existence?
"By the word of Yahuwah were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth. He gathereth the waters of the sea together as an heap: he layeth up the depth in storehouses.

What was Yahuwah's purpose in creating the earth?

How does the Bible describe the creation of man?
"And Yahuwah Elohim formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul."

"What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour. Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet." Psalm 8:4-6.

Yahuwah gave man an ideal home. What was it?

What was the food that Yahuwah gave to perpetuate immortality?

What simple plan was used by Yahuwah to test the loyalty and obedience of Adam and Eve?
"And Yahuwah Elohim commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die." Genesis 2:4-17.

What is the power that upholds all the universe?

What is it that the visible Creation reveals to us?
"For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Divinity; so that they are without excuse." Romans 1:20.

An obedient Christian is whose workmanship?
"For we are his workmanship, created in the Anointed Yahushua unto good works, which Yahuwah hath before ordained that we should walk in them." Ephesians 2:10.
