Good morning, friends,
I’ve mentioned “the Creation message” in previous posts. What exactly is that? And how does it apply to us?
Genesis 1:1 states, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” There follows a description of the six days of Creation. God spoke, various parts of creation came into being, and in each case, “God saw that it was good.” The Hebrew in this chapter is written in narrative form, not poetic form. It describes a series of real events.
Isaiah, the prophet, spoke often of God the Creator. “I am the Lord, who has made all things, who alone stretched out the heavens, who spread out the earth by myself” (Isaiah 44:24). “I form the light and create darkness” (Isaiah 45:7). “It is I who made the earth and created mankind upon it. My own hands stretched out the heavens; I marshaled their starry hosts”(Isaiah 45:12). “For this is what the Lord says — he who created the heavens, he is God; he who fashioned and made the earth, he founded it; he did not create it to be empty, but formed it to be inhabited” (Isaiah 45:18).
The Creation message is simply that it is God, all powerful and all knowing, who intentionally created the universe and everything in it. The Bible is an accurate historical revelation of that event, the “history book of the universe”. Our incredibly fine-tuned universe and complex creation did not come into existence on their own through a series of chance, random processes as the Theory of Evolution postulates. There are many excellent scientific reasons that bring to dust Darwin’s Theory of Evolution and much excellent science that precisely confirms what the Bible has said all along.
What does this mean for us? If there is a Creator, we are accountable to Him. More about that on future posts.
Enjoy His Creation,
