God Only Wrote One Record of Creation

I have several dozen biblical creationism books 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

Exodus 20 was actually inscribed by the very finger of God into stone. What does 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, you hold it in your hands (or at least I hope you do, always bring your copy of God’s Word!) 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, and you are 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. So why don’t we just look at the record of God’s Word which detail the Creation.

The initial setting for Genesis is eternity past. God then, by willful act and divine Word, spoke all creation into existence, furnished it, and finally breathed life into a lump of dirt which He fashioned in His image to become Adam. God made mankind the crowning point of His creation, i.e., His companions who would enjoy fellowship with Him and bring glory to His name.

 

Theistic Evolution

As taught in our public schools today, the Organic Theory of Evolution accounts for the origin of mankind as follows:

“Life on this planet originated several billion years ago, when electrical disturbances caused reactions to occur in the chemicals of the primeval ocean, and these reactions produced amino acids, and these amino acids organized themselves into living cells. As time went on, more chemical reactions caused the descendants of these one-celled organisms to mutate and develop into a variety of types of multi-celled plants and animals.

“The process continued, and as each new variety of organism appeared, natural selection would result in its being either better or less suited to the environment, and therefore it would either flourish or disappear. In the long run, then, species of plants and animals better and better suited to their respective environments appeared and developed.

“Man is the highest product of this development. He is immediately descended from the same ancestors as the apes; more remotely, from the same ancestors as all mammals. He is himself still developing; that process is stalled by our present lifestyle, but biologically it is inevitable.”

 

Two lines run through the history of mankind:  the line of Christ and the line of Antichrist, the line of the Woman’s seed and that of the serpent.

  • The Christ line begins with Adam, passes via Golgotha, and leads to the heavenly Jerusalem.
  • The Antichrist line begins with Cain, passes via Babel, and leads to the lake of fire.

There are only 2 families (God’s and Satan”s). There are only 2 destinies (Heaven and Hell). And There are only 2 choices (repent or reject). Each of us today belongs to one family or the other. You are choosing your own future.

Oceanography

Oceanography Job 38:16 Hast thou entered into the springs of the sea? or hast thou walked in the search of the depth? (KJV) [there are teeming life systems surrounding the toxic hot springs at volcanic vents, two miles down in the dark ocean depths unknown until this century]

Did you know there are underground currents and they didn’t find these until the sailing days in the colonial times in the 15th, 16th century.  They found that if they went out into the current that they’d get quicker even though it was a further distance, and they found out that God put springs and currents into the ocean and they follow patterns and there are currents coming up out of the bottom of the sea floor and two miles down in the dark ocean depths unknown until this century is the life God placed down there to show His creative power.

 

Meteorology

Meteorology is the study of our atmosphere. Only a few hundred years ago was it found that air above us has mass or weight. However in the first and oldest book of the Bible nearly 4,500 years ago Job said Job 28:24-25 For He looks to the ends of the earth, [And] sees under the whole heavens, 25 To establish a weight for the wind, And apportion the waters by measure. (NKJV)

Hydrology

Hydrology is the water cycle of the earth. Water circulates from the ground and seas to the air and back again. Scripture explicitly documents this fact.

Evaporation, Condensation, Vapor Clouds and Precipitation – all the elements of hydrology, through Job. Job 36:27-28 For He draws up drops of water, Which distill as rain from the mist, 28 Which the clouds drop down [And] pour abundantly on man. (NKJV) Now that is Scientific Precision!

Ecclesiastes 1:7 All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea [is] not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again. (KJV) Note: this was written 1000 BC before anyone knew of the hydrological cycle.

All the rivers run in the sea, to the tune of 286,000 cubic miles of water and yet the sea level doesn’t rise an inch! Why? Because of the marvelously engineered planet with its evaporation and condensation system of the hydrological cycle.

 

There are two programs at work in the world today: God’s program of salvation, and Satan’s program of evolution. Evolutionists say we are just a blob of protoplasm waiting to become manure. Or as steven Jay Gould once remarked on the purpose of evolutionary life “We Are Here Because One Odd Group Of Fishes…”. Remember design shows a designer and complexity shows a Creator! Yet Science Magazine says it outright in 1980, “there is no evidence of macro evolution.”[2] The key is in the statement of Rich Bozarth published in the American Atheist, “If we can remove Adam and Eve we wipe out Christianity!”

Evolutionists like the wording in 2 Peter 3:4 “all things continue as they were.” This argument against the second coming of Christ is based on the theory of uniformitarianism, which says that all natural phenomena have operated uniformly since the beginning of the earth. The false teachers were also implying that God is absent from earth affairs. In effect, they were teaching that, “There will not be a great cataclysmic judgmental event at the end of history, because that is not how the universe works. There never has been such a judgment, so why should we expect one in the future. Instead, everything in the universe is stable, closed, fixed, and governed by never varying patterns and principles of evolution. Nothing catastrophic has ever happened in the past, so nothing catastrophic ever will happen in the future. There will be no divine invasion, no supernatural judgment on mankind.”

  • There is a Knowable Creator
  • The Knowable Creator is a Seekable Savior
  • Acknowledge and Believe in the Creator or be judged
