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

Amazing GraceAmazing Grace: The History and Theology of Calvinism (DVD)

Download the Free Study Guide!

Just what is Calvinism?

Does this teaching make man a deterministic robot and God the author of sin? What about free will? If the church accepts Calvinism, won’t evangelism be stifled, perhaps even extinguished? How can we balance God’s sovereignty and man’s responsibility? What are the differences between historic Calvinism and hyper-Calvinism? Why did men like Augustine, Luther, Calvin, Spurgeon, Whitefield, Edwards and a host of renowned Protestant evangelists embrace the teaching of predestination and election and deny free will theology?

This is the first video documentary that answers these and other related questions. Hosted by Eric Holmberg, this fascinating three-part, four-hour presentation is detailed enough so as to not gloss over the controversy. At the same time, it is broken up into ten “Sunday-school-sized” sections to make the rich content manageable and accessible for the average viewer.

Why Creeds and Confessions? (Book)

High Quality Paperback — 219 pages

Foundations in Biblical Orthodoxy

Driving down a country road sometime, you might see a church with a sign proudly proclaiming: “No book but the Bible — No creed but Christ.” The problem with this statement is that the word creed (from the Latin: credo) simply means “belief.” All Christians have beliefs, regardless of whether they are written.

Yet a single book containing the actual texts of the most important creeds of the early Church will not often be found. Out of the multitude of works on the evangelical Christian book market today, those dealing with the creeds of the Church are scarce.

Why Creeds and Confessions? provides a foundation of biblical orthodoxy as a defense against the false and truly heretical doctrines advanced by the spirit of this age.

The Abortion Matrix: Defeating Child Sacrifice and the Culture of Death (DVD)

Is there a connection between pagan religion and the abortion industry?

This powerful presentation traces the biblical roots of child sacrifice and then delves into the social, political and cultural fall-out that this sin against God and crime against humanity has produced in our beleaguered society.

Conceived as a sequel and update to the 1988 classic, The Massacre of Innocence, the new title, The Abortion Matrix, is entirely fitting. It not only references abortion’s specific target – the sacred matrix where human beings are formed in the womb in the very image of God, but it also implies the existence of a conspiracy, a matrix of seemingly disparate forces that are driving this holocaust.

The occult activity surrounding the abortion industry is exposed with numerous examples. But are these just aberrations, bizarre yet anomalous examples of abortionists who just happen to have ties to modern day witchcraft? Or is this representative of something deeper, more sinister and even endemic to the entire abortion movement?

As the allusion to the film of over a decade ago suggests, the viewer may learn that things are not always as they appear to be. The Abortion Matrix reveals the reality of child-killing and strikes the proper moral chord to move hearts to fulfill the biblical responsibility to rescue those unjustly sentenced to death and to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves (Proverbs 24:11,12; 31:8,9).

Speakers include: George Grant, Peter Hammond, RC Sproul Jr., Paul Jehle, Lou Engle, Rusty Thomas, Flip Benham, Janet Porter and many more.

Massacre of Innocence (DVD)

Exposing The Occult Roots of Abortion

This presentation looks at the spiritual roots of abortion and exposes the myths surrounding child killing. Little known historical facts about abortion and how they relate to modern feminism are presented logically and accurately. Has been effective in converting many to a pro-life position.

Massacre of Innocence goes where no pro-life presentation has gone before in “tearing the lid off abortion” to reveal the spiritual realities we must battle if we will bring an end to this crime. The presentation is absorbing, fast-paced, informative and incredibly devastating to any attempt to justify abortion.

“… an extraordinary statement … a powerfully articulate presentation about what abortion really means, and why a great and moral nation like the United States must not allow the slaughter to continue.”
— Congressman Robert K. Dornan

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.
