Creation and Redemption
truth is revealed in the first verse in the Bible?
"In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth." Genesis
contrast is repeatedly drawn between the true God and false gods?
"Thus shall ye say unto them, The gods that have not made the
heavens and the earth, even they shall perish from the earth, and from
under these heavens. The portion of Jacob is not like them: for he is
the former of all things; and Israel is the rod of his inheritance:
The LORD of hosts is His name." Jeremiah 10:11,16.
"Are there any among the vanities of the Gentiles that can cause
rain? or can the heavens give showers? art not thou he, O LORD our God?
therefore we will wait upon thee: for thou hast made all these
things." Jeremiah 14:22. (See Acts 17:22-29; Revelation 14:6-10.)
whom did God work in the creation of all things?
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and
the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things
were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was
made." John 1:1-3.
is our redemption provided?
"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet
sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by
His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him." Romans 5:8,9.
passage of Scripture speaks of the Creator as Redeemer?
"But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and
he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I
have called thee by thy name; thou art mine." Isaiah 43:1.
prayer of David reveals that God's redemptive work of man is a creative
Create in me a
clean heart, O
God; and renew a right spirit within me." Psalms 51:10.
we told that Christ, the active agent in creation, is also the head of the
"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: and he is before all things, and by him all
things consist. And he is the head of the body, the church: who
is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might
have the preeminence." Colossians 1:16-18.
scripture clearly shows that it is God's creative power which transforms
"For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good
works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in
them." Ephesians 2:10.
Who is it
that keeps the stars in their places in the heavens?
"To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? saith the
Holy One. Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these
things, that bringeth out their host by number: me calleth them all
by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power;
not one faileth." Isaiah 40:25,26.
the same Creator do for you and me?
"Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and
to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding
joy, to the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and
power, both now and for ever. Amen." Jude 24-25.
of this power is available to help us in our need?
"That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may
give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:
The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is
the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his
inheritance in the saints, And what is the exceeding greatness of his
power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty
power, Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and
set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places." Ephesians
sustains the universe and keeps it each moment?
"And he is before all things, and by him all things
consist." Colossians 1:17.
great truth is the Seventh-day Sabbath a memorial and a sign?
"But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all
things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all
things, and we by him." 1 Corinthians 8:6.
Sabbath is a memorial of Creation. Is it also a sign of God's power to
"Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt
thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the sabbath of
the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor
thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy
stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days the LORD made heaven
and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh
day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it."
"It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days the
heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was
refreshed." Exodus 31:17.
"Moreover also I gave them my sabbaths, to be a sign between me and
them, that they might know that I am the LORD that sanctify them."
Why is God
worthy to receive our worship, praise and honor?
"Thou are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for
thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were
created." Revelation 4:11.
