“For thus saith the Lord that created the heavens; God
himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath
established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it
to be inhabited” (Isaiah 45:18; see also Ephesians 3:9;
“And worlds without number have I created; and I also
created them for mine own purpose; . . .
“. . . For behold, there are many worlds that have
passed away by the word of my power. And there are
many that now stand, and innumerable are they unto
man; but all things are numbered unto me, for they are
mine and I know them” (Moses 1:33, 35).
