That frustrateth the tokens of the liars, and maketh diviners mad; that turneth wise men backward, and maketh their knowledge foolish; That confirmeth the word of his servant, and performeth the counsel of his messengers; that saith to Jerusalem, Thou shalt be inhabited; and to the cities of Judah, Ye shall be built, and I will raise up the decayed places thereof: That saith to the deep, Be dry, and I will dry up the rivers:

ANSWER: God (Jesus Christ) created the heavens and then stretched them out over the universe. He stretched and spread them into all parts of the universe. They were taken from a place of close proximity and moved light years away and apart from one another. He played with them as a child would play with a toy.
