On the first, that is the next, day he created the firmament and called the water above the firmament:
heaven. But wasn't heaven already created? And, is the blue sky really water? And, who created the
other planets in the universe? And, who created universe itself?
The book of Genesis is not the only portion of the Bible speaking of the creation of the heavens and the earth. It is best to take in all
the Bible passages on the matter for a complete revelation.
For example all things came into existence because of the will of God -
" ... for You have created all things, and because of Your will they were, and were created." (Rev. 4:11)
"All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him not one thing came into being which has come into being." (John 1:3)
"The burden of the word of Jehovah concerning Israel, Thus declares Jehivah, who stretches forth the heavens and lays the foundation of the earth and forms the spirit of man within him." (Zechariah 12:1)
"Because in Him all things were created, in the heavens and on the earth, the visible and the invisible, whether thrones or lordships or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through Him and unto Him." (Col. 1:16)
" .... at the last of these days has spoken to us in the Son, whom He appointed Heir of all things, through whom also He made the universe (or ages)." (Hebrews 1:2)
These are just a sample of other Bible passages on the creation of all things. There is no need to be limited to Genesis chapter 1 exclusively. The entire divine relelation repeats and fills in more details until we get a whole picture, or as whole a picture as God is pleased to tell us.
God created the universe and all things in it.
