Why Six Days?

YOM_DAYEvery week we go through a cycle that God established as a perpetual reminder that He created the world in six days. The seventh day is a memorial to His completed creation. To reject a literal, six-day interpretation is to confound that memorial. Furthermore, it is a denial of the completeness of God’s creation. How? If everything evolved from nothing, or if creation was spread over eons of time, then there was no seventh day. So, according to evolution, creation is not only incomplete, it’s going on right now! John MacArthur explains . . .

One of the greatest debates in the modern church can be resolved by realizing that Genesis 1 is not poetic in nature because it does not bear the hallmarks of Hebrew parallelism. Students of the Bible would do well to study parallelism, the basic structure of Hebrew poetry. You can read the entire article HERE 

HT: AiG

Thus the heavens and the earth were completed,
and all their hosts. By the seventh day God
completed His work which He had done, and
He rested on the seventh day from all His
work which He had done.

and that’s a beautiful thing!

“What is meant is a weakness of understanding or judgment, sometimes through stupidity, sometimes through confusion, but always demanding censure.” (Kittel TDNT)

The Work of His Hands

Colonel (retired) Jeffrey N. Williams, an astronaut since 1996, has flown three space flights, including one mission aboard the space shuttle Atlantis and two expeditions to the International Space Station. He spoke at the Truth Matters Conference at Grace Community Church and spoke of God’s work from space, The work of His hands

“Almost a hundred years ago, Benjamin Warfield, who you may be familiar with, wrote something I came across a little while ago, where he said, “A Christian sees God in everything.” And then he used an analogy of a window. And he says, “A window stands before us and you can look at the window and you can contemplate how it’s made. You can look at the defects in the window.” And sometimes I found myself looking at old windows in old buildings and watching the waviness, and you’ve done that, perhaps. The house I grew up in had…the original windows had waviness in it. So you can focus on the window. “Or you can look through the window and see the view on the other side.”

Now in order to give you a glimpse of the wonders of God’s creation from this vantage point that I’m talking about, I need to give you a perspective of what the vantage point is. So imagine yourself on the International Space Station, traveling seventeen thousand, five hundred miles an hour, orbits the earth every ninety minutes. If you were to ride on a rocket and get there, you’d get to orbit in about nine minutes and then typically it would take you about two days to catch up and dock with the thing. And then this place is your home. It’s about the size of a, on the inside, a large five bedroom home. It’s got a few windows, thankfully. That’s the best part, to be able to view the Earth. But imagine yourself there, imagine yourself going outside perhaps once in a while and hanging on to the outside and viewing God’s creation, we call Earth, down below. I call this “The Ultimate Sky Dive.”

Haydn, The Creation – The Heavens are Telling

As I was running earlier this morning, I was reminded of the beauty of earth and the Creator who made it.  This piece by Haydn is part of his Creation oratorio, which he wrote in both German and English.  Here is the English version of this great piece.

Chorus
The heavens are telling the glory of God;
with wonders of his work resounds the firmament.

Gabriel, Uriel, Raphael
Revealed are his ways by day unto day,
by night that is gone to followign night.

Chorus
The heavens are telling the glory of God;
with wonders of his work resounds the firmament.

Gabriel, Uriel, Raphael
In every land abounds the word.
Every ear will hearken; never tongue be dumb

Chorus
The heavens are telling the glory of God;
with wonders of his work resounds the firmament.

God: Creator, Judge, Redeemer

And I saw another angel flying in midheaven, having an eternal gospel to preach to those who live on the earth, and to every nation and tribe and tongue and people; and he said with a loud voice, “Fear God, and give Him glory, because the hour of His judgment has come; worship Him who made the heaven and the earth and sea and springs of waters.” Revelation 14:6-7

Redemption: The Grand Design of the Universe

Remember the first events, because I am God, and there is no other. I am God, and there’s no one like me.Declaring the end from the beginning, And from ancient times things which have not been done, Saying, ‘My purpose will be established, And I will accomplish all My good pleasure’;Isaiah 46:9-10
