How?

Man’s word versus God’s Word.
How did this all happen?

The first 4 words in the Bible disproves: The Atheist, who says there is no God

The Atheist, who says there is no God

The Agnostic, who claims we cannot know God

The Polytheist, who worships many gods

The Panteist, who says that “all nature is God”

The Materialist, who claims that matter is eternal and not created

The Fatalist, who teaches that there is no divine plan behind creation and history.

1. The Creator

notice a few things:

a) The Time

“in the beginning...”

b) The Name

“Elohim” - this means “God Almighty”

c) The Power

“created”

d) The Wisdom

d) The Chaos

“and the earth was without form, and void...”
Formless, confusion, unreal, and empty
Isaiah 55:11
Isaiah 55:11 KJV 1900
So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: It shall not return unto me void, But it shall accomplish that which I please, And it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

e) The Wisdom

2. The Creation

Notice what we see:

a) He Spoke

This is important… when God said it, it happened.
The first three days God formed what He wanted.
Day 1 - Light (Split with Darkness)
Day 2 - Water below and Vapor above
Firmament
Day 3 - Land and sea (Plant life)
God then filled what He formed.
Day 4 - Sun, moon, stars became visible
Day 5 - animal life (Fish and birds) - the ocean and sky
Day 6 - animals on the ground and Man
Day 1 - Light
Day 2 -

b) He Sees

Each thing and each day had a specific purpose.
Next week we will talk about “WHY” God created everything

c) He Names

v. 5, 8,10

d) He Blesses

v. 22 & verse 28
Wow, what a cool and good gift God gave!

3. The Change

So we see this is Scripture, but I want you to know that Jesus is on every page.
Jesus Christ was there in the beginning and the plan to send Him was already in place.
How does Creation display the plan of Jesus?

God gave us the highest position in Creation, and Satan wanted to ruin it.

what eventually happened was that man sinned, and in sinning, we became broken.
So the question then becomes “HOW” can I make it better with God?

a) We are Void

Man was created perfect but was ruined through sin. He is born a sinner, “without form and void”; his life is purposeless and empty and dark.

Oh but the Spirit of God is working…
Even in the middle of chaos, God is moving and working!

b) God Speaks

Psalm 119:130 KJV 1900
The entrance of thy words giveth light; It giveth understanding unto the simple.
Romans 10:17 KJV 1900
So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

c) God Creates

2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV 1900
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV 1900
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
2 Corinthians 5:20 KJV 1900
Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.
2 Corinthians 5:21 KJV 1900
For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
