“Complication of Creation”

John 1:9-11

Intro:

Last week bearing a witness, John being the men of men. Fathers being like John

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 descen dants 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.”

John 1:9-11 (KJV)
9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.

His Person

His Preparedness

His Possesions

Point 1: His Person

In verse 9 it says “That was” really that is a poor translation:

a.      I should say “I was”

b.        Which is a verb in the:

Tense — Imperfect     The imperfect tense generally represents continual or repeated action. Where the present tense might indicate “they are asking,” the imperfect would indicate “they kept on asking.”

In the case of the verb “to be,” however, the imperfect tense is used as a general past tense and does not carry the connotation of continual or repeated action.

Voice — No Voice Stated  

   

Mood — Indicative     The indicative mood is a simple statement of fact. If an action really occurs or has occurred or will occur, it will be rendered in the indicative mood

 

The ture Light,

John 14:6 (KJV)

1.    Proverbs 7:4 (KJV)
4 Say unto wisdom, Thou art my sister; and call understanding thy kinswoman:

He give it to every man:

a.    this is the same as in John 3:15 whosoever believed on him.

1. male, female that is being born to can be born again.

When you except Jesus as the head of your life you will receive understanding

Point 2: His preparedness

10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.

Again we have a poor translation KJV says “He was” but a better translation is “I was:

1.    I was what?

John 1:18 (KJV)
18 No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.

John 17:25 (KJV)
25 O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.

4.    He, Jesus is the one who brought order and understanding to us and now we want to act like we got it from school.

5.    Or some of us are just smart own our own.

6.    He made you, what you are and with out you are nothing but dust.

Kosmos the world he was in it, still is in it, and will always be in it. Know matter what you think God will always be God and don’t need our help to be God. We need his help.

Everything that was made was made be him:

The word made is:

1.    is to raise up

2.    everything that was made was raised up by him

3.    He even can raise the dead, and than know each of them by name.

4.    We have folk talking about the have raise from the dead, and when you ask them for a name they have forgotten.

1 Corinthians 1:21 (KJV)
21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

After Jesus came and fixed the problems in our life, we now should Learn of him and that what we are trying to do here at GMBC making disciples.
