The verses before us have parallels and contrasts. Firstly, the contrasts. In vs.5 we have two contrasts. Firstly, "Trust in the LORD"...

Creation - The Sixth Day part 5

creation sixth 5

Genesis 2:7 says, "the LORD God formed man (adam) of dust (adama) from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being (nepes)." Let it be clear that the dust was real, the ground was real, the breath of life was real, and the man who was created was real. The Bible clearly affirms the historicity of Adam by including him in the...

Creation - The Sixth Day part 4

creation sixth 4

By way of introduction to the fourth part of our study of the Sixth Day of Creation, it is important to note that Genesis 1:26 tells us that God created man in His image and according to His likeness. Furthermore, Genesis 1:27 tells us that God created man male and female. The extended account of the creation of the male and female human beings is found in Genesis.2. Firs...

Creation - The Sixth Day Part 3

creation sixth 3

Man is God's Image-Bearer Genesis 1:26ff tells us that God created man. As we have seen, man is the crowning point in God's creation activities. God created man "in Our image, according to Our likeness." The significance of man being created in the image and likeness of God is truly astounding. Psalm 8:5 says, "You crown him with glory and majesty." The image of God in ev...

Creation - The Sixth Day part 2

sixth day part 2

Genesis Chapter 1 shows us that when God created the heavens and the earth, He did so by Divine fiat. God would repeatedly say, "Let there be." and then we would read, "And it was so." When we come to the sixth day, we read in Genesis 1:24, "Then God said, "Let the earth bring forth living creatures aftertheir kind: cattle and creeping things and beasts of the earth aftert...

Creation - Seven Days

Moses wrote in Genesis 1:1, "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." As noted in a previous article, (In the Beginning God. Pt.1), Moses wrote under the Divine revelation and inspiration of the Holy Spirit. He did not write for 21st century scientific debate. Moses wrote so that the Israelites would come to know their God, their history, and their identity...

Creation - The Sixth Day

creation sixth day

Genesis 1:26 says, "Then God said, "Let Us make man."" The Biblical account of the creation of mankind on the sixth day of creation is found in Genesis 1:26-31 and Genesis 2:8-25. There are those who assert that these are two different accounts of God's creation activities on the sixth day and written by different authors. Nothing is further from the truth. Genesis 2 assum...

In The Beginning God (Part 2)

in the beginning 2

God is Eternal Genesis 1:1 reveals to us various truths about God. Firstly, the verse tells us God is eternal. "In the beginning" God was already there. "Beginning" has to do with the beginning of time. "Time" is a part of creation. God existed before creation and time. Psalm 90:2, written by Moses, states, "Before the mountains were born, Or You gave birth to the earth a...

In The Beginning God (part 1)

in the beginning 1

A God with no Beginning Genesis 1:1, which contains seven words in the Hebrew, states, "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." With profound brevity and without any fanfare, these seven words give us a very simple, clear, and unequivocal account of the seven days of creation and of how everything in the heavens and the earth came into existence. There is...

Canst Thou By Searching Find God?

Canst Thou By Searching Find God

If someone were to ask you : "can you prove from the Bible that there is a God?", what would be your answer? My answer would be : the Bible does not set out to prove there is a God. The Bible declares there is a God. Genesis 1:1 says, "In the beginning God." This God has chosen in accordance with His own will, good pleasure and the glory of His name to reveal Himself to us...

Christ Risen

1Corinthians 15:3-4 says, "Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures."

In Luke 24:5-6 the angel said to the women who came to Jesus' grave, "Why do you seek the living One a...

The Sovereignty Of God

Is God really God? You say, "what kind of question is that? What does that mean?" In Isa.40:18 the LORD asked, "To whom then will you liken God? Or what likeness will you compare with Him?" Let me ask another question : what do you mean when you say, "God is God"? The Biblical answer is that God is the Sovereign God. That means God is the absolutely, infinitely, completely...

The Ascension of Jesus

In Acts 1 Luke tell us that after Jesus rose from the dead, He appeared to His disciples several times over a period of forty days. Luke said Jesus "presented Himself alive by many convincing proofs." (vs.3). After His resurrection Jesus was not a spirit being but a real "flesh and bones" person. This is clearly seen in Lk.24:36-43 where we are told Jesus ate a piece of f...

The Spirit of God

Gen.1:1 says, "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." "In the beginning" points to the beginning of time and creation. The point to note here is that if God was already there in the beginning, then God precedes the beginning. If God precedes the beginning, then God is eternal. Moses is the author of Genesis and Psalm 90. Psa.90:1-2 says, Lord, You have b...

Creation of Mankind

creation of mankind1

In this article I want to take up the subject of the Biblical account of God's creation of mankind. That account is recorded for us in Gen.1:26-31 2:7-9, 15-25. Both accounts deal with God's creation of mankind on the sixth day. Take careful note of how I have set out the reading of both chapters. 1:24 Then God said, "Let the earth bring forth living creatures after thei...

Creation of Mankind part 2

creation part 2

Let us consider the following : 1). God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, and according to Our likeness." This is an astonishing truth. Man is made to reflect in a finite manner what the infinite God is like and to have fellowship with God. It must be emphasized that all men and women, without exception, are equally made in the image of God. The image of God is every p...

All I Want is Justice

From time to time, when talking with people about the claims of the gospel, they would reject the gospel and say, "When I stand in the final judgment, all I want, from whatever God there is, is justice." The basis of this statement is generally based on the following : (1) all men are basically good and capable of good works; (2) the final judgment, if there is one, will b...

The apostle Paul described the Christians in Rome as "beloved of God" (Rom.1:7). He described the Thessalonian Christians as "beloved by God" (1Thess.1:4) and as "beloved by the Lord" (2Thess.2:13). In all three instances it is proper to say that Christians are God's beloved people. In Rom.1:7 "beloved" is a verbal adjective with a passive sense. Firstly, the adjective sa...
