CREATION

CREATION

1. God created the world, not chance evolution:

Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven & the earth
Jonah 9:6 Thou hast made the earth, & all things therein
Isaiah 45:12 I have made the earth, & created man upon it
John 1:1-3 All things were made by Him (Jesus); & without Him was not anything made that was made
Colossians 1:16 For by Him (Jesus) were all things created
Hebrews 1:2b His Son…by Whom also He made the worlds
(See also Ephesians 3:9b; Psalms 102:25;Isaiah 48:13; Acts  4:24; 14:15; 17:24.)

2. God’s Word created (& maintains) the universe:

Psalms 33:6 By the Word of the Lord were the heavens made
Psalms 33:9 He spake, & it was done; He commanded, & it stood fast
Colossians 1:17 He (Jesus) is before all things, & by Him all things consist [hold together]
Hebrews 1:3a Upholding all things by the Word of His power
Hebrews 11:3 The worlds were framed by the Word of God

3. God’s creation is proof of His existence:

Job 12:7-9 The earth…shall teach thee. Who knoweth not…that the hand of the Lord hath wrought this?
Psalms 19:1 The heavens declare the glory of God; & the firmament (universe & stars) sheweth His handiwork
Romans 1:20 The invisible things of Him are…understood by the things that are made…so they are without excuse

4. Jesus believed in & quoted from Genesis:

Matthew 19:4,5 Have ye not read…He…made them at the beginning (See also Genesis 1:27; 2:24.)
John 5:46,47 If ye believe not his (Moses’) writings [Genesis], how shall ye believe My Words?

5. False science doesn’t have the answers:

1 Timothy 6:20 Avoiding…oppositions of science falsely so called
2 Timothy 3:7 Ever learning, & never able to come to a knowledge Psalms 14:1 The fool hath said in his heart, “There is no God”
Isaiah 44:24,25 The Lord turneth…wise men backward, & maketh their knowledge foolish
Jeremiah 2:27 Saying to a stone, “Thou hast brought me forth”
Jeremiah 8:9 The [so-called] wise men have rejected the Word of the Lord; what wisdom is there in them?
Romans 1:21-23 When they knew God, they glorified Him not as God, professing themselves to be wise, they became fools
Romans 1:25 They changed truth [of creation] into a lie [evolution] & worshipped the creature more than the Creator
1 Corinthians  1:18-21 Hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?

6. The Bible & true science:

A. The days of Genesis chapter one were not geological ages:
Genesis 1:11-19 [Plants created on day 3, the sun on day 4. Plants could live 24 hours without sun, but not eons]
Exodus 20:9-11 [Rest the 7th day, not eon] For in 6 days the Lord made heaven & earth…& rested the 7th day
B. Prophetic descriptions of recent “discoveries” about creation:
Job 36:27,28 [Water cycle:] Rain according to the vapour thereof: which the clouds do drop & distill
Ecclesiastes 1:7 All the rivers run into the sea…from whence the rivers come, thither they return again
Job 38:22 Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? [No two snowflake crystals on earth are alike]
Ecclesiastes 1:6 [Jet stream:] The wind…whirleth about continually, returneth according to his circuits
Hebrews 11:3b Things which are seen [material world] were not made of things which do appear
Job 26:7 He…hangeth the earth upon nothing
Isaiah 40:22 It is He that sitteth upon the circle of the earth
C. “Prehistoric” beasts are mentioned in the Bible. They co- existed with man before the flood:
Genesis 1:21 God created great whales [Heb: “great sea monsters“]
Job 40:15-24 Behold now behemoth…he moveth his tail like a cedar
Job 41:1-34 Leviathan…shall not one be cast down even at the sight of him? When he raiseth up himself…
D. Each species created distinct & separate; the unbridgeable gap of sterility separates species:
Genesis 1:11,12,21,24,25 Every (plant &) living creature…brought forth after their kind (species)
E. The age of the earth:
 NOTE: Secular history tells us that Solomon finished building the Jewish temple in 1012 BC.–And the genealogies listed in Genesis 5:1-29; 7:6; 11:10-26; 21:5; 25:26; 47:5-12;Exodus 12:40,41 &1 Kings 6:1,38 which cover from Adam to Solomon show that the earth was created only around 4,000 BC, about 6,000 years ago, not billions of years ago.

7. God, as the Creator, has rights of ownership of everything:

Job 41:11 Whatsoever is under the whole heaven is Mine
Psalms 24:1,2 Earth is the Lord’s…& they that dwell therein
Psalms 50:10-12 Every beast of the forest is Mine…the world is Mine
Psalms 89:11 The heavens are Thine, the earth  also is Thine
Psalms 95:3-5 Sea is His…He made it: His hands formed the land
(See also Psalms 102:25;Isaiah 45:18.)

8. He expects & deserves reverence & worship from His creations:

Psalms 33:6-9 By the Word of the Lord were the heavens made…Let all the earth fear the Lord (&) stand in awe of Him
Psalms 148:5 Praise the name of the Lord: for He…created
Ecclesiastes 12:1 Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth
Isaiah 45:9 Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker
Isaiah 48:12,13 Hearken unto Me…Mine hand hath laid the foundation of the earth, &…spanned the heavens
Jeremiah 32:17 Thou hast made the heaven & the earth by Thy great power…& there is nothing too hard for Thee
Jeremiah 33:2,3 Thus saith the Lord, the maker, Call unto Me
Acts 14:15 Turn from vanities…unto God, which made heaven, & earth, & the sea, & all things that are therein
(See also Jeremiah 5:22; Isaiah 42:5; Amos 4:13.)

9. God has power to control His creation:

Job 38:8-11 Here shall thy proud waves be stayed [must stop]
Psalms 104:5-35 [A description of God’s control of creation]
Psalms 135:5-7 Whatsoever the Lord pleased, that did He… in earth
(See also Job chapters 26,28,38-41; Psalms 148:6-14; Matthew 8:26; Mark 4:39; Luke 8:24.)

10. As Creator, God is above all “gods”:

1 Chronicles 16:26 The gods of the people are idols: but Lord made heavens
Psalms 95:3 The Lord is a great God…above all gods
Jeremiah 10:11-13 The gods…have not made the heavens & the earth, (God) hath made the earth by His power
