The Six Days Of Creation

It is by “the word of his power” that the very atomic structure of all matter is held together … the heavens and the earth, and you and I. We could not exist without Jesus Christ (who is God) “upholding all things by the word of his power.”

The Basic Truths Of Life!

TRUTHS

The BibleEveryone that ever walked on this planet must come to terms in this life with some basic TRUTHS. These will be the basic truths that no one can argue with, if they are sane. Of course, if you believe what God says in His Own BOOK about you, then you will have no problem with accepting these basic truths.

1. The Brevity Of Life

"For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away." (James 4:14b) Our life is brief! like a vapor, or like smoke. "Is there not an appointed time to man upon earth? are not his days also like the days of an hireling?" (Job 7:1) He is born, and then he will die! This is certain! (The exception being Enoch and Elijah, and also, those believers in Jesus Christ who are alive when He comes for His Church.)

2. The Brevity Of Your Remembrance

You will soon be forgotten. A man is remembered only a little while, and then he is forgotten. "He shall return no more to his house, neither shall his place know him anymore. Are not my days few? cease then, and let me alone, that I may take comfort a little, Before I go whence I shall not return, even to the land of darkness and the shadow of death; A land of darkness, as darkness itself; and of the shadow of death, without any order, and where the light is as darkness." (Job 7:10 & 10:20-22)

3. The Sureness Of Trouble

Life is bale full of troubles. I have also found this very true!!! "Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble. He cometh forth like a flower, and is cut down: he fleeth also as a shadow, and continueth not." (Job 14:1).

4. The Verity Of The White Throne Judgment

"And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment" (Hebrews 9:27). You will not miss this one unless YOU ARE HID in the CLEFT OF THE ROCK!

5. The Eternality And The Finality Of What You Do With Jesus Christ:

We will all be held accountable over this issue. It is a hard fact of life, my friend. Now will you take God's offer of eternal life ... purchased by His Son ... for all those who will put their trust in Him ... a thumbs down? You will everlastingly suffer the consequences!

6. That Men Never Learn From History

We learn from History That Men Never Learn From History! It is a heart problem! Men refuse to learn the "lessons" afforded by the light of HISTORY: the recorded historical events which occurred as fulfillment of Bible prophecy. Now, these are the basic truths with which we all must deal with one way or another!

7. What Should You Do?

"But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved"; [Romans 10:8-13]

Believe The BOOK!

The King James Bible

BibleThis is God's Holy WORD to you and I! Do you believe it? The A.V.1611 (or The King James Bible) is God's word PRESERVED in the English language for you and me. It came from the English Reformation. This Bible declares that: "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness." [2 Timothy 3:16] God's inspired word is preserved in the A.V.1611. The word "preserved" means maintained inspiration. "The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in the furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever." [Psalm 12:6-7] “PRESERVE.” .

LONG HOME

demo Everybody is going home someday. Everybody is going to their LONG HOME. When you die, you are going to go to your “long home” whether, it be in “Heaven” or in “Hell”. Do you realize that truth? “Also when they shall be afraid of that which is high, and fears shall be in the way, and the almond tree shall flourish, and the grasshopper shall be a burden, and desire shall fail: because man goeth to his long home, and the mourners go about the streets:” [Ecclesiastes 12:5].

The Six Days Of Creation

Old Paths Baptist Mission © 2011 Richard St.JamesThe Creation


Preface:

“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 1:1

Genesis 1:1 “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.”

Who is this God who “created the heaven and the earth”?  Good question! As our nation increasingly moves away from its Judeo-Christian foundation the ignorance of Bible truths prevails. For several generations now this leavening process with its attendant darkness, known as Pantheism, is supplanting America’s Christian heritage.

Now Pantheism portends a pluralism of gods … many gods … with many ways for man to get to “heaven”. Yet in Genesis 1:26, The True God is revealing himself in the plural. Not as one of many gods but as one Triune God. “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness”: Note that it says, “our image”“our likeness”. This is the BIBLE beginning to show to us his triune nature … three persons in one God. The Bible is a progressive revelation.

Hebrews 1:1 “God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things”. In the last part of this verse we see WHO the God of creation is. “By whom also he made the worlds”. Verse three, why it is none other than the SON of GOD who is Jesus Christ. “Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person”.

Do not fail to see this thing. Jesus Christ is the EXPRESS IMAGE of his person (of GOD) “and upholding all things by the word of his power”.

It is by “the word of his power” that the very atomic structure of all matter is held together … the heavens and the earth, and you and I. We could not exist without Jesus Christ (who is God) “upholding all things by the word of his power.”

This God of Creation is this “he” in the balance of verse three, “when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high”. Therefore he is the God of our salvation. The Son of God went to the Cross of Mount Calvary to shed his blood for your sins and mine. In verse eight we see a strange thing.

Here God is speaking to God. What we saw Genesis 1:26 with the phrase “our image” … “our likeness” becomes unmistakable. The Father is very GOD and the SON is very GOD. “But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is forever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom. Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands: They shall perish; but thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment; as a vesture shalt thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail.”

The creation was completed in seven literal days. Genesis 1:2 “And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. Genesis 1:3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light." Genesis 1:4 "And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness."  Genesis 1:5 "And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day."

•Day 1 –

 God creates LIGHT and divided the light from the darkness. Genesis 1:6 “And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.” Genesis 1:7 “And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.” Genesis 1:8 “And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.”

•Day 2 –

God creates a “FIRMAMENT” or the sky above the Earth, or Heaven. Genesis 1:9 "And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so." Genesis 1:10 "And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good." Genesis 1:11 "And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so." Genesis 1:12 "And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good." Genesis 1:13 "And the evening and the morning were the third day."

•Day 3 –

God creates zones separating the SEAS from LAND, and creates the GRASS, HERBS and TREES and what’s more, set into motion the reproductive cycles “after his kind”. All this was done thus far without the SUN for light. Genesis 1:14 “And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:” Genesis 1:15 “And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.” Genesis 1:16 “And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.” Genesis 1:17 “And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,” Genesis 1:18 “And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good."

•Day 4 –

 God divides the DAY from the night, thus creating the diurnal cycle, and thus setting into motion a time line to reference all things or events. He also creates the “greater light” or the SUN and “the lesser light” or the MOON along with the universe and all its constellations or STARS.

•Day 5 –

God creates the BIRDS and the FISH.

•Day 6 –

God creates the ANIMALS and then MAN. Genesis 1:26 “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.”  Genesis 1:27  “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” Only man is created “in his own image”. Genesis 1:31 “And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.”

•Day 7 –

God rests. In John 1:1 we see the truth again that it is JESUS CHRIST who is the Creator and Savior of mankind! “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made." John 1:4 "In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.” John 1:9 “That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world." John 1:10 "He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.” John 1:14 “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.”

Here is an invitation to you! Receive Jesus Christ as your Savior And LORD! John 1:12 “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.”

Will you receive Jesus Christ?  “For there are three that bare record in heaven, the Father, the Word, the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.” 1 John 5:7

Go to: The Two Kingdoms

 

Psalm 12 ... is the promise to us!

Purified seven times ... God's word is kept in spite of men!

 

Help, Lord; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men.
[Verse 1]

They speak vanity every one with his neighbour: with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak.  [Verse 2]

The Lord shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speaketh proud things: [Verse 3]

Who have said, With our tongue will we prevail; our lips are our own: who is lord over us? [Verse 4]

 For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now will I arise, saith the Lord; I will set him in safety from him that puffeth at him. [Verse 5]

The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. [Verse 6]

Thou shalt keep them, O Lord, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.         [Verse 7]

The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted. [Verse 8]
