God the Master Creator


The Creation Stage

Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array. By the seventh day God had finished the work He had been doing; so on the seventh day He rested from all His work.

Bible Study Article Covers : Genesis 2:1,2

I invite you to join me on a journey that will take you beyond the scope of your natural understanding. Our journey will begin, by us traveling through the beginning part of the Sacred Record that some are calling: The Creation Stage. This beginning stage of the Sacred Record is composed of the first 11 chapters, starting with the Book of Genesis.

Now I hold the viewpoint that these first 11 chapters of the Sacred Record, are very crucial. For I believe that they hold a great importance that will be very beneficial, when it comes to our overall biblical studies.

For I personally believe that if we as believers, could accept these first 11 chapters as real truth. It will help us to recognize, as we continue through our journey that these first 11 chapters, actually sets the overall foundation for the following, and remaining 1178 chapters that are left from within the glorious passages of God's Word.

Now from within this Creation Stage, we'll come across biblical accounts that are dealing with what I like to call: Adam the Highlight, The Prophet Enoch, and Noah the Keeper of the Ark. Also from within these first 11 chapters, we'll visit some important events that will take us through the recording of: God's Creation, The Fall of Humanity, The Great Flood of Judgment, and man's so-called gateway to heaven: The Tower of Babel.

Now when we finally exit from the Creation Stage, we should find ourselves to be somewhere around the year 2000 B.C.. Now with that being stated, I hope and pray that you'll enjoy our journey, as we travel together throughout God's Word. And while we're here, I might as point out, overall, the Bible has basically twelve different broad stages from within it's makeup.

Now I'm hoping that eventually, we'll be able to journey through all twelve stages: Creation Stage - Patriarchal Stage - Exodus Stage - Conquest Stage - Judges Stage - United Kingdom Stage - Chaotic Kingdom Stage - Captivity Stage - Return Stage - Gospel Stage - Early Church Stage - Epistle Stage

The More Complex, the Better

"In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters." -- Genesis 1:1-2

Now I'll like to start off with asking the question: "How can something so powerful and perfectly balanced... just happen? Know that the question that I'm posing, deals with a subject that has, and continues to be, highly debated amongst believers and non-believers. But there's one thing that I can honestly say about the Bible. While everybody else is steadily looking for answers, the Bible continues to provide them for all those, who are willing to hear, understand and have an open mind.

For you see, for some reason, non-believers, just can't get over the fact that God created such a complex universe. But personally for me, it seems that the creation of the universe isn't the problem. For it would seem that the simple response that the so-called intellects get in return, bothers them the most. For they seem to think that something that's so complex, like the universe, deserves an answer that should be just as complicated.

This is why they say to themselves and others: "How can the answer to this complex question be so easily answered? God created it... oh really? Have they thought about Baum's Steady State Theory in which he states: "That the universe had always existed?" What about Leakey's Missing Link Theory? or everybody's favorite: The General Theory of Evolution?

I want you to know this folks... what the so-called intellects fail to realize when it comes to God, simply deals with the idea: The more complex the question seems to be, the more that simple answer they get in return, is seen as real truth.

How Can Something So Remarkable...

Now when we take a look at the universe, and we come to some kind of conclusion that reveals that, there are probably over one billion other galaxies from within its unlimited borders. Then one would begin to consider the possibility that, there are probably more stars in these galaxies, then there are grains of sand, on all the beaches on the earth.

And yet, this vast area of space is so pleasing to the eye, and so powerful to the imagination that it simply can't be measured or fully understood. And on top of that, it all seems to function from within remarkable order and efficiency. So this is why I often wonder: How can one bring themselves to say: "That it all just happen?"

The Sacred Record reveals to us that at this point in time, everything was without form, emptied and void. All you could see was darkness upon the face of the deep. And little would we know, God would put such detail and beauty from within these great areas of space and land. I could not have guessed that God could make something that would be so diverse in life and image.

For this vast empty area of space and land, would be so beautifully crafted, with perfect balance, symmetry, and accuracy. Can you imagine it? Can you look past your natural understanding of things, and appreciate it? Know that God created something that holds perfect order, tremendous power, from within a universe that's filled with great mysteries. I'm hoping that throughout our journey, you'll begin to see just how awesome God truly is!

In the next Bible Study Online Article:

We will finish exploring the first stage from within God's wonderful creation, by taking a quick look at the creation of light. Then we'll enter into the second stage from within this creation account, and take a closer look at the dividing of the waters (being that this was no longer one large system source, God divides it into different systems, for different uses) and we will also take a look at the different firmaments. May God blessings be upon you, and thank you for your support.
