LORD OF CREATION

WEDNESDAY – THE LORD OF CREATION

There is one thing that all of mankind has in common – they are all created by God. We are created in His image. We all share this common heritage. Though presently there are many races, we all came from one man (Adam) and one woman (Eve). And God has not let us forget this truth in His revelation:

NAU Genesis 1:26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness;

NIV Genesis 1:26 Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness,

KJV Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:

NAU Mark 10:6 “But from the beginning of creation, God MADE THEM MALE AND FEMALE.

NIV Mark 10:6 “But at the beginning of creation God ‘made them male and female.

KJV Mark 10:6 But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.

NAU Mark 13:19 “For those days will be a time of tribulation such as has not occurred since the beginning of the creation which God created until now, and never will.

NIV Mark 13:19 because those will be days of distress unequaled from the beginning, when God created the world, until now– and never to be equaled again.

KJV Mark 13:19 For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be.

And we must not forget that while Genesis 1 declares that God created the heavens and the earth, later revelation declares that it is the creative work of the Second Person of the Trinity – Jesus!

NAU Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

NIV Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

KJV Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

NAU John 1:3 All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being.

NIV John 1:3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.

KJV John 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

NAU Colossians 1:16 For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities– all things have been created through Him and for Him.

NIV Colossians 1:16 For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him.

KJV Colossians 1:16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

As our Creator, God is our Master, our Lord. Man tends to forget this truth but God gently reminds us:

NAU Psalm 100:3 Know that the LORD Himself is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.

NIV Psalm 100:3 Know that the LORD is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.

KJV Psalm 100:3 Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

God has staked His claim as Lord over us by being our creator. We may rebel against God’s Lordship as Creator but the truth remains – we are His by creation. He owns us and has the right to rule over us.

And all men will have to acknowledge this truth one day as Isaiah 45:3 told us yesterday. Yet, it is not enough to merely acknowledge YHWH as Lord of all creation. The person who only bows to YHWH as the Creator God is in the same predicament as the person who refuses to acknowledge YHWH as their Creator God. They are both rejected by God. Theists, in the broadest definition of the term, are on equal ground with the atheist if YHWH is only submitted to as Lord of Creation. There is another submission by man to God that is necessary to receive God’s favor as we will see tomorrow.
