IN THE BEGINNING: WHAT DID GOD CREATE? (GENESIS 1:1)
Can God be trusted? That is the bottom line of the doctrine of Inspiration.
The Bible makes the claim that every word of this Book is from God.
The Bible makes one huge scientific claim—God made the Universe, and we know and believe that:
GOD ONLY WROTE ONE RECORD OF CREATION
I have several dozen Biblical Creationism book s on my shelf in my study. All were written by godly men. But only one book on Biblical Creationism was written by the very finger of God. Did you know that?
What part of the Bible did God actually write with His finger? He wrote it on stone. Does that help? Yes, let’s turn there to Exodus 31:18.
When the LORD finished speaking to Moses on Mount Sinai, he gave him the two tablets of the Testimony, the tablets of stone inscribed by the finger of God.
So as we turn back to the contents of those two stone tablets, written by the very finger of God, we are turning to Exodus 20. As we read these words remember they were actually inscribed by the very finger of God into stone. What do the only words God actually wrote on an object say?
Let’s stand and hear God’s Word:
Exodus 20:9-11 Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day [is] the Sabbath of the LORD your God. [In it] you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who [is] within your gates. 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. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it. (NKJV)
This is the Creator’s record. This is His explanation of the timing; and it is six solar days!
There is only one perfect science book in the world, and you hold it in your hands. All other science books are flawed in that they have not been able to personally record a first-hand observation of say the birth of a star, or the origin of a volcano in the earth’s center.
There is only one perfect history book in the world; you are also holding it in your hands. All others are gathered and collected and have the marks of frail, fallen, and fallible humanity all over them. But God has heard every word, seen every event, and flawlessly captured what He wants us to know.
