4-18-2017 Work Of Creation

Everything on earth had a beginning. Every effect must have an adequate cause. “For every house is built by someone, but He who built all things is God” (Hebrews 3:4 NKJV), an inescapable conclusion of common sense. “By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible. (Hebrews 11:3 NKJV). What we “see” is material substance, but it was not made from itself!     All scientific evidence and fact prove that matter is not eternal and must have had a beginning. “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1:1 NKJV). Thus, the Bible begins with one of the strongest proofs possible that there had to have been The Creator: from nothing came something caused by The Power (“God”) who is the uncaused First Cause!

A New Beginning

A new beginning would be when one is baptized into Christ (Galations 3:26-27) he or she becomes a “new creation” in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17). A transformation or metamorphosis takes place (Romans 12:2), the “old man” of sin is crucified (Romans 6:6) and the “new man” of righteousness emerges (Ephesians 4:24; Colossians 3:10).

What is my favorite book in the Bible to…

What is my favorite book in the Bible to teach?

The book of Romans, because it emphasizes obedience, from the beginning of the book to the end of the book (Romans 1:1-5; Romans 6:16-17; Romans 16:25-26).
