9-26-2017 Godless Evolution

Speaking of Jesus as God in the Creation: “You, LORD, in the beginning laid the foundation of the earth, And the heavens are the work of Your hands” (Hebrews 1:10 NKJV). The false doctrine of “Evolution” tries to account for this creation without God. Without any scientific fact to support it, it assumes: matter always existed; after a chaotic “bang,” order developed; the guiding “god” was billions of years of Time; humans came from animals. Did I miss anything? The Bible points to scientific fact: matter had a beginning; God designed the order in creation; God created within a week; humans are specially made. Did you miss anything? Of Christ, it is said: “All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist” (Colossians 1:16-17 NKJV).

9-27-2017 Only God Is

“By the word of the LORD the heavens were made, And all the host of them by the breath of His mouth” (Psalm 33:6 NKJV). A short summary of the Creation found in Genesis chapters 1 & 2. Only God was “In the beginning” with power enough to bring all this into existence. “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). “For He spoke, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast” (Psalm 33:9 NKJV). In Genesis 1, after the 10X “God said,” the entire world and its organizing rules, were brought into reality. Origin and Design did NOT come through the “god of Time,” a.k.a. “Evolution,” but only through the living God.

6-28-2017 God’s Work Is Unchanged

“Consider the work of God; For who can make straight what He has made crooked?” (Ecclesiastes 7:13 NKJV). In the Creation, God: “divided the light from the darkness. God called the light Day and the darkness He called Night” (Genesis 1:4-5); He caused “the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear,” making “Earth” and “Seas” (Genesis 1:9-10); He “let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed, and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in itself” (Genesis 1:11); He made “great sea creatures and every living thing that moves,” “and every winged bird according to its kind” (Genesis 1:20-21). “Evolution” has no explanation for these distinctions, and no “scientist” has discovered any contradictory fact! God’s Creation Work still stands as written! Humans have not, and cannot, change it

6-13-2017 The Water Line

On the second day of The Creation, God “divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament; and it was so. And God called the firmament Heaven” (Genesis 1:7-8 NKJV). God, not “Evolution,” determined water limits on Earth. Nothing mankind has done, or can do, changes God’s limits for water. “You who laid the foundations of the earth, So that it should not be moved forever, You covered it with the deep as with a garment; The waters stood above the mountains. At Your rebuke they fled; At the voice of Your thunder they hastened away. They went up over the mountains; They went down into the valleys, To the place which You founded for them. You have set a boundary that they may not pass over, That they may not return to cover the earth” (Psalm 104:5-9 NKJV).

‘In the beginning’ Genesis 1.1 VOTD

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”

Genesis 1.1

Time, force, energy, space, and matter are all present in this verse.

How does this truth make a difference in one’s daily life?

11-21-2016 Global Cooling

“Let all the earth fear the LORD; Let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him. For He spoke, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast” (Psalm 33:8-9 NKJV).  God is “awe-some,” not some car, good food, nice clothes, or a store bargain! No one has created from nothing, like He did, or organized it by command as He has. Daniel said, God “changes the times and the seasons” (Daniel 2:21 NKJV). There is no “global warming” unless God has decreed it, not some politician with fake “science.” He said, “While the earth remains, Seedtime and harvest, Cold and heat, Winter and summer, And day and night Shall not cease” (Genesis 8:22 NKJV).  The earth still remains, so “globally,” there are seasons.  After an extended summer with drought, our North American part of the “globe” is having “winter,” just as God decrees!

The why of creation

This is part of a chapter out of a book I’m writing, entitled (for now) “Total Transformation.” You might find it to be of use.

Man was created in God’s image, in order to know his person and blessing, Gen 1.26-28. As the only creature to bear the divine stamp, man is able to relate to God. “Man meets and talks with God in the Garden of Eden” Gen 2.15-17 (NIBD). Adam and Even walked with God, Gen 3.8.

Because of their sin, they were expelled from the Garden, but the original intent was for them to choose God’s love, not to spurn it. Scripture mentions that God came to walk with them after they lost that privilege, highlighting even more the preciousness of this gift. Continue reading

9-30-2016 God Exists 2

Without the God of the Bible, no one can explain:

1) The Creation: Of world-wide oceans, God “fixed My limit for it, And set bars and doors; When I said, ‘This far you may come, but no farther, And here your proud waves must stop!’” (Job 38:10-11 NKJV); 2) The Bible: After all efforts to ignore or destroy it, “the word of the LORD endures forever” (1 Peter 1:25 NKJV); 3) Jesus Christ: God in the flesh, “humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name” (Philippians 2:8-9 NKJV); 4) Christians: “who suffer according to the will of God commit their souls to Him in doing good, as to a faithful Creator” (1 Peter 4:19 NKJV).  Can “atheism” explain these?

A literal picture of a day 6 creature

5-23-2016 What “Prehistoric” People

According to the genealogy of Jesus Christ in Matthew 1:1-17, there were 42 generations from Abraham to Jesus Christ, and according to the genealogy of Jesus Christ in Luke 3:23-38, there were only 11 generations from Abraham to Noah, and only 9 more generations from Noah to Adam, or about 62 generations in all.   Since Adam & Eve were the first humans God made in the Creation in Genesis 1:26-30, and they were given “dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air and over every living thing that moves on the earth,” then there never has been a time when:  (1) dinosaurs ruled the earth; (2) there were “prehistoric humans;” (3) the earth was “millions and millions of years” in the making!  Truth is in the Bible, not in some men’s mindless blindness!

5-26-2016 Understanding God

“For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse” (Romans 1:20 NKJV).  God is not in the Creation, but His handwork clearly shows that He has left His imprint all over the place!  “Understood” literally means, “using your intelligence!”  The evidence is in the Creation, but we must draw the conclusion!  David said: “The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork” (Psalm 19:1 NKJV).  Paul declared: “God, who made the world and everything in it” (Acts 17:24 NKJV).  Jeremiah spoke as we should when he said: “Let us search out and examine our ways, And turn back to the LORD; Let us lift our hearts and hands To God in heaven” (Lamentations 3:40-41 NKJV).

4-26-2016 Contradictions #2

People try to avoid obeying God by pointing out where God’s Word contradicts itself.  “But Jesus knew their thoughts, and said to them: ‘Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand’” (Matthew 12:25 NKJV).  If God’s Kingdom and Bible are “divided against itself,” they “will not stand.”  The Creation of the “heavens and the earth” in Genesis 1 & 2 are said to be contradictory.  “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1:1 NKJV).  “Created” means all matter used came from nothing.  Then what God did to rearrange this “matter” in seven 24-hour days is in Genesis 1:2-31.  Then details about the 6th day are given in Genesis 2.  There is no contradiction, only further detailed facts.  Truth does not contradict itself.
