Knowing the Creator is Foundational
When defending the Christian Faith one of the most prominent battlegrounds is the beginning, the origins, the very first book of the Bible….Genesis. Without a Creator there is not a Creation. If the foundations crumble then so does everything that stands upon them. Knowing the Creator is of utmost importance when examining the Christian Faith.
Who is this God we serve? Knowing the Creator
He is the Creator!! Knowing the Creator is to know that HE is an awesome, incredible, and magnificent Personal Being, but what do we really know about this God that holds sway over everything: Both seen and unseen? We can know Him through His inspired Word, the Bible. This Bible is an amazing book whose writing spanned approximately 1500 years and roughly 40 authors including shepherds, priests, kings, doctors, tax-collectors, and fisherman who all had one thing in common, knowing the Creator and fostering the belief in Almighty God.
Knowing the Creator through His Word
“ In the beginning God created the Heavens and the Earth. “
Isaiah 40:28 declares:
“ Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth does not become weary or tired.”
HE is untiring, everlasting, the LORD, and it is almost beyond belief that we have those who claim to not have heard of HIM or acknowledged Him. Our God has created the stars, and leads them, calling them by name ( Isaiah 40:26 ). This same Creator revealed Himself in the flesh and all things came into being through Him and apart from Him nothing came into being that has came into being ( John 1:1-3 ).
Colossians 1:15-17 says,:
“ HE is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. 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. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. “
Knowing the Creator as the Maker of all things, as the ONE who also holds them together, is to know Jesus Christ, the Alpha and Omega, the First and the Last. He is declared to be the God of Creation and the obedient Son sent from the Father to seek and save that which was lost.
In Knowing the Creator are you Without Excuse?
“ Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold new things have come.”
Not only does the One who made Heaven and Earth, the One who holds all things in His hands, and the One who knows the beginning from the end still hold all Power but He has revealed Himself to us. In knowing the creator as Savior, now has the old man passed away and HE has made all things new while giving us Hope that is Eternal.
God Bless and Keep the Faith.
