The first act of GOD’S divine love.
The LORD GOD ALMIGHTY has spoken to us through His holy written word of truth, the Holy Bible! For, the Heavens and the Earth declare His glory. And we, mankind, created in His image, in His likeness must also declare His glory in proclaiming His creation of all things seen and unseen.
GOD, and only GOD, THE BLESSED, HOLY, ALMIGHTY, WONDERFUL, ETERNAL, CREATOR, SUSTAINER, PLANNER, EXECUTER, LOVING, MERCIFUL, GRACIOUS, LIVING, LIGHT AND LIFE, ALPHA AND OMEGA…the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit, the ONE and only GOD OF ALL ETERNITY has told us that HE is the Creator of all things as His holy word reveals! It was not random blind chance of some imagined so-called evolutionary theory that man boasts of, but the SPOKEN WORD OF GOD IN THE BEGINNING, THE HAND OF GOD THAT CREATED ALL THINGS IN SIX DAYS AS THE HOLY BIBLE STATES!
Anyone reading the Holy Bible from beginning to end will discover that God does everything in a sequential, chronological order. So is was in the Six Days of Creation: six 24 hour days in which GOD created and made all things as recorded in the very first book of the Holy Bible: GENESIS.
We honor God, we proclaim His greatness, we sing His praise and glory when we declare in all things His marvelous, awesome, stupendous, instantaneous creation out of nothing but His spoken word! Genesis begins the journey in our minds of the glorious beginning act of creation, and both the Old Testament and the New Testament of the Holy Bible add further testimony of God’s holy creation, In the Beginning.
First of all, in eternity past, there was just GOD and the WORD…and GOD declared, God spoke, and so the story begins:
“IN the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
YESHUA, JESUS, THE MESSIAH, THE CHRIST…THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD…CREATOR, LORD, GOD…
“He was in the beginning with God”
“All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.”
“In Him was life, and the life was the light…”
“And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it”
“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” And God is letting us know that the Earth that He would create, and put things in it and on it and make it to be inhabitedand lived on was first in God’s creation, “without form and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.”
Then God tells us what He did and how He did it in the Six Days of Creation! And in this miraculous special act of God of Creation, He establishes time and the very first week of seven 24 hour days…In the Beginning.
First, God spoke the words, “Let there be,” and it was created as fast as one can hear the very first three words God spoke in the beginning of time. Thus each of the six days of creation whereupon God does something different on each day, and makes it so by stating: “So the evening and the morning were the first day,” and so on for each of the six days of creation, only something GOD could do!
And note, that everything God created in six days was GOOD!
On the first day of creation of the first week, God created light and darkness, divided it; “God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night.”
On the second day of creation, God spoke Heaven into being, and that became His home along with the heavenly host, the angels, which He also created then.
On the third day of creation God spoke and the dry land appeared, and the seas. “And God called the dry land Earth, and the gathering together of the waters He called Seas. And God saw that it was good.”
Furthermore, on the third day of God’s creation, God said to the earth to bring forth grass and herbs and trees to cover the earth, all created adult, all according to its own kind.
On the fourth day of God’s creation, He spoke into existence the sun, the moon, and the stars, all working as He created them to work as it was in the beginning, is now and forever will be.
Each and every day in our lives and the lives of countless saints who have lived and saw God’s glorious handwork all around them as they, and we, have gazed upon the beauty off the earth in each of its glorious seasons, and the sun, and the moon, and the light they give to the earth, and to us. And to look up to the heavens and the distant vast array of the stars like the sand of the seashore, no one could count! Can we not proclaim to God, “How great Thou art!” And that our eternal, heartfelt thanks for all the wonders of creation surely is more awesome to behold than some abstract idea about how life began according to man?
So far in the story of Creation, the sequential order is thus: the Heaven; the Earth; the Sun; the Moon, the Stars.
On the fifth day of creation, God spoke into existence the things of the sea, and the things of the air: “So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that moves, with which the waters abounded, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind.” All were created adult so they could “be fruitful and multiply,” and so they could fill the waters and the air of the earth ad God commanded. “And God saw that it was good. And God blessed them.”
On the sixth day of God’s creation, He spoke and made all the various and different kinds of animals on the face of the earth, as He commanded the earth to bring forth all kinds of animals each after its own kind, and adult were they created. “And God saw that it was good.”
“Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness;” and God created them to have dominion over all things of the earth; “over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” This was the crowning point of God’s creation on the sixth day! “So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.”
“Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
“Then God saw everything He had made, and indeed it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day”
So ended the six days of creation in all the work God did; and as it was then, so it is now. “Thus the heavens and the earth, and all the host of them, we’re finished.”
“And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which God had created and made.”
God has told us all we need to know about His creation, when He did it, and how He did it. Now, today, we behold His glory of everything we see on earth and in the heavens, the sky above, and believe, and it is simply marvelous!
You like a good history story, don’t you? After all, it is His-Story written for us.
“This is the history of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens.”
Now you know the truth about who made the things of the universe. May you hold this in your heart and believe all these things that are written in God’s Holy Word.
He wrote these things that you might believe.
The Apostles’Creed: “I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator/maker of heaven and earth.”
Job 12:7-10 “But now ask the beasts, and they will teach you; And the birds of the air, and they will tell you; Or speak to the earth, and it will teach you; And the fish of the sea will explain to you. Who among all these does not not know That the hand of the Lord has done this, In whose hand is the life of every living thing, And the breath of all mankind.”
Exodus 20:11 “For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day.”
Psalm 19:1. “The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork.”
Job 38:4 “Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth?
Psalm 8:1,3 “O LORD, our Lord, How excellent is your name in all the earth, Who have set Your glory above the heavens! When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars which You have ordained.”
Psalm 24:1-2 “The earth is the Lord’s, and all its fullness, The world and those who dwell therein. For He has founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the waters.”
Psalm 33:6 “By the word of the LORD the heavens were made, And all the host of them by the breath of His mouth.”
Proverbs 3:19-29 “The LORD by wisdom founded the earth; by understanding He established the heavens; By His knowledge the depths were broken up, And clouds drop down the dew.”
Isaiah 40:26 “To whom then will you liken Me, Or to whom shall I be equal? says the Holy One. Lift up your eyes on high, And see who has created these things.”
Even Brother Monk on the Holy Island cries out each day that it is You, O Lord God Almighty, my Lord and my God who created all things that we see in all the whole world! Yours is the glory, Lord, for you made the sea and the waves, the sand of the shore, the wind and the clouds, the rain, the birds that fly over sea and land; the sun to light the day and warm us; the moon and the stars to give light at night: who cannot understand that You created all things in the beginning, and give us all things, and all things work together as in there day they were created. For the Word of your mouth holds everything together! I see Your glory Lord, and I thank you forever.
Isaiah 45:18 “For thus says the Lord, Who created the heavens, Who is God, Who formed the earth and made it, Who has established it, Who did not create in vain, Who formed it to be inhabited: “I AM THE LORD, AND THERE IS NO OTHER.”
All of the GOD’S Creation was perfect and good; He did not create in chaos, nor out of chaos, nor any presupposed wrecking of the earth by Satan, so that God had to ‘re-create’ the world, as the frenzied, wild, fertile imagination of man would have it. But Satan is trying destroy what God said through the written word.
But God’s word will never pass away, for it is forever settled in heaven.
Hebrews 1:10 “You, Lord, in the beginning laid the foundation of the earth, And the heavens are the work of Your hands.”
Acts 14:15 “Men, why are you doing these things? …that you should turn from these unless things to the living God, who made the heaven, the earth, the sea, and all things that are in them.”
Jeremiah 32:17 “Ah, Lord God! Behold, You made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and outstretched arm. There is nothing too hard for You.”
So you see, dear brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus, our Lord and Savior, look uo, look around and see what God has created for us in His great, great love for us…that we may enjoy His creation and give praise and glory to Him forevermore.
“O give thanks unto the Lord, and call upon His Name; tell the people what things He has done…for “This is the day which the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.”
May God bless you and keep you in His care,
In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen.
