Creation: A Reflection of the Creator

By Editorial Staff
Published December 22, 2007

Quite often, we observe an aspect of nature that inspires us to more fully appreciate God and His Creation. Mountains, oceans, lakes, rivers or trees, can also help us to know more about the Almighty Creator, whose wisdom goes far beyond human knowledge. Let us now examine some aspects of Creation so that we might more fully understand Him.

Only through divine revelation, faith and Scripture, which are the basis for Christianity, can we understand and accept the doctrine of Creation. God can give us the comprehension of Creation through His divine revelation, but along with this we must believe it through faith in an all-powerful Creator. Also, we must read and accept the Scripture, which tells us in detail the story of Creation. In itself, Creation reflects the nature and eternal power of the Triune God (Romans 1:20).

Through all of the magnificent Creation, we can see the character and attributes of its Creator. In the strong oak trees we can see His strength. Through the majestic mountains, we can see His glory and majesty. Through the creation of the human body, we observe His creativity and intricacy. These examples are just a minute fraction of what we can learn of God through His Creation.

When we view the wonder of His Creation, we stand in awe because of the power and other characteristics which are so evident. We also stand in humility. The more we see of the beauty of Creation, the more we can humble ourselves before our great God who, in His omnipotence, sent His precious Son to die so that we, all unworthy sinners, might have the chance to spend eternity with Him in His awesome presence. Just thinking about that makes one feel so small and unworthy compared to God’s terrific power.

This power is seen in the fact that God created the entire universe out of nothing, ex nihilo. He had nothing to work with, but spoke everything into existence. He turned the void into the beauty of the universe with just words. If His words are that powerful, the power of His actual being is completely incomprehensible! He created everything that is now on the earth in six days. Nothing has been, nor ever will be, created since.

It is also incomprehensible how anyone can believe that everything was created by chance. There is too much evidence, both logically and scientifically, to believe that all that we know as the universe just came together by accident. There isn’t even a remote possibility of that happening.

For example, the Big Bang theory states that all of a sudden with a bang the universe came into existence out of nothing. Thus out of chaos came order. But if you took apart a watch into all of its intricate pieces, placed it in a box, closed the lid, and shook it around, would the watch be put back together again? Of course not! The absurdity of this statement compares very well with the Big Bang theory. The universe must be the creation of a Triune God, with the Father as the Creator, the Son as the agent or instrument of Creation, and the Holy Spirit as the energizer or executor of the Creative acts.

The Triune God performed creation through a series of creative acts. He created the universe and the earth, then the living creatures, and then His masterpiece, man. The six “days” in which he created the universe could be literal days, or else each day could be an age. Everything is fixed in creation according to kinds. But within these kinds there is also variety, or micro-evolution. We can see God’s orderliness and creativity through this, as well.

As can be easily seen, Creation was definitely an awesome act. It had to be performed by a great force. Though powerful, it is also beautiful and wonderful, and is, in effect, a mirror image of its Creator.

Pensive it mentioned below the little serving as an example of my research result and see how our universe creation or creator is! “Beginning of the creation a part of the power of the nature became divisible as a result of the big bang”. Again, “Everything of the present universe is the result of evolution of single energy of Power” i.e. revolving of the sole level picture and evolution of picture or advent of multilateral matter as a result of change. In or under the circumstances As I see it, is there a no conflict between science and religious through that physical nature of the universe. Such as- existence of the God/creator is in everything at all i.e. God is omnivorous i.e. at the root of God or creator is everything at all in the universe. Everything is the result by evolution/variable of her part such as in physics. Again as I see it, energy or ray is the presence of singular dimension, the last position of matter in artificial experiment and test. We found the reality of big bang in the law of single dimension of the physical worlds. Again, we found the influence of gravitational force or universal ray; it proves the partial division of dark energy or black body. Again, the last state of physics is power or ray and there have been the concept that the output of moving of unit energy dimension is everything of the world. Again, just at this time we are looking- location of dark energy is near about 14 billion light years- from our location, yet same event or very moment, from the black body- it is again we are in the dark energy i.e just at this time it is again we are in her belly. So see- God/creator is at once and always omnipotent, omnipresent, omnivorous or united in all things. See into- “Wonderful Creation” http://bit.ly/9L85W7

The Silent Scream (DVD) Eight Languages

“When the lives of the unborn are snuffed out, they often feel pain, pain that is long and agonizing.” – President Ronald Reagan to National Religious Broadcasters Convention, January 1981

Ronald Reagan became convinced of this as a result of watching The Silent Scream – a movie he considered so powerful and convicting that he screened it at the White House. More recently, it was by catching just a glimpse of what this film reveals that Planned Parenthood director and abortion advocate Abby Johnson turned and became a strong advocate for the pre-born.

The modern technology of real-time ultrasound now reveals the actual responses of a 12-week old fetus to being aborted. As the unborn child attempts to escape the abortionist’s suction curette, her motions can be seen to become desperately agitated and her heart rate doubles. Her mouth opens – as if to scream – but no sound can come out. Her scream doesn’t have to remain silent, however … not if you will become her voice. This newly re-mastered version features eight language tracks and two bonus videos.

“…a high technology “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” arousing public opinion just as Harriet Beecher Stowe’s 1852 antislavery novel ignited the abolitionist movement.” – Sen. Gordon Humphrey, Time Magazine

Languages: English, Spanish, French, South Korean, Chinese, Russian, Portuguese, Japanese

Running Time: 28 minutes

Go Stand Speak (DVD)

With “preaching to the lost” being such a basic foundation of Christianity, why do many in the church seem to be apathetic on this issue of preaching in highways and byways of towns and cities?

Is it biblical to stand in the public places of the world and proclaim the gospel, regardless if people want to hear it or not?

Does the Bible really call church pastors, leaders and evangelists to proclaim the gospel in the public square as part of obedience to the Great Commission, or is public preaching something that is outdated and not applicable for our day and age?

These any many other questions are answered in this documentary.

The Four Keys to the Millennium (Book)

Foundations in Biblical Eschatology

By Jay Rogers, Larry Waugh, Rodney Stortz, Joseph Meiring. High quality paperback, 167 pages.

All Christians believe that their great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, will one day return. Although we cannot know the exact time of His return, what exactly did Jesus mean when he spoke of the signs of His coming (Mat. 24)? How are we to interpret the prophecies in Isaiah regarding the time when “the earth will be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea” (Isa. 11:19)? Should we expect a time of great tribulation and apostasy or revival and reformation before the Lord returns? Is the devil bound now, and are the saints reigning with Christ? Did you know that there are four hermeneutical approaches to the book of Daniel and Revelation?

These and many more questions are dealt with by four authors as they present the four views on the millennium. Each view is then critiqued by the other three authors.

Freedom: The Model of Christian Liberty (DVD)

“Give me liberty or give me death!”

Patrick Henry’s famous declaration not only helped launch the War for Independence, it also perfectly summarized the mindset that gave birth to, and sustained, the unprecedented experiment in Christian liberty that was America.

The freedom our Founders envisioned was not freedom from suffering, want, or hard work. Nor was it freedom to indulge every appetite or whim without restraint—that would merely be servitude to a different master. No, the Founders’ passion was to live free before God, unfettered by the chains of autocracy, shackles that slowly but inexorably bind men when the governments they fashion fail to recognize and uphold freedom’s singular, foundational truth: that all men are created in the image of God, and are thereby co-equally endowed with the right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

This presentation is a similar call, not to one but many. By reintroducing the principles of freedom that gave birth to America, it is our prayer that Jesus, the true and only ruler over the nations, will once again be our acknowledged Sovereign, that we may again know and exult in the great truth that “where the Spirit of the LORD is, there is liberty” (2 Cor. 3:17).

Welcome to the Second American Revolution!

This DVD features “Liberty: The Model of Christian Liberty” along with “Dawn’s Early Light: A Brief History of America’s Christian Foundations.” Bonus features include a humorous but instructive collection of campaign ads and Eric Holmberg’s controversial YouTube challenge concerning Mitt Romney’s campaign for president.

Dr. Francis Schaeffer - A Christian Manifesto (DVD)

That Swiss Hermit Strikes Again!

Dr. Schaeffer, who was one of the most influential Christian thinkers in the twentieth century, shows that secular humanism has displaced the Judeo-Christian consensus that once defined our nation’s moral boundaries. Law, education, and medicine have all been reshaped for the worse as a consequence. America’s dominant worldview changed, Schaeffer charges, when Christians weren’t looking.

Schaeffer lists two reasons for evangelical indifference: a false concept of spirituality and fear. He calls on believers to stand against the tyranny and moral chaos that come when humanism reigns-and warns that believers may, at some point, be forced to make the hard choice between obeying God or Caesar. A Christian Manifesto is a thought-provoking and bracing Christian analysis of American culture and the obligation Christians have to engage the culture with the claims of Christ.
