God is Creator of the Universe and Everything in It

 

The free act of God based on his own wisdom and power, forming the whole natural order by his word.

 

Nehemiah 9:6 (NKJV)

6 You alone are the Lord;

You have made heaven,

The heaven of heavens, with all their host,

The earth and everything on it,

The seas and all that is in them,

And You preserve them all.

The host of heaven worships You.

 

Genesis 1:1 (NKJV)

1In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

2:1 Thus the heavens and the earth, and all the host of them, were finished.

 

Psalm 24:1-2 (NKJV)

1The earth is the Lord’s, and all its fullness,

The world and those who dwell therein.

2For He has founded it upon the seas,

And established it upon the waters.

 

Proverbs 8:22-31 (NKJV)

22The Lord possessed me at the beginning of His way,

Before His works of old.

23I (Wisdom) have been established from everlasting,

From the beginning, before there was ever an earth.

24When there were no depths I was brought forth,

When there were no fountains abounding with water.

25Before the mountains were settled,

Before the hills, I was brought forth;

26While as yet He had not made the earth or the fields,

Or the primal dust of the world.

27When He prepared the heavens, I was there,

When He drew a circle on the face of the deep,

28When He established the clouds above,

When He strengthened the fountains of the deep,

29When He assigned to the sea its limit,

So that the waters would not transgress His command,

When He marked out the foundations of the earth,

30Then I was beside Him as a master craftsman;

And I was daily His delight,

Rejoicing always before Him,

31Rejoicing in His inhabited world,

And my delight was with the sons of men.

 

Ecclesiastes 3:11; 11:5 (NKJV)

11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end.

 

Ecclesiastes 11:5 (NKJV)

As you do not know what is the way of the wind,

Or how the bones grow in the womb of her who is with child,

So you do not know the works of God who makes everything.

 

Acts 4:24; 14:14-15; 17:24 (NKJV)

24 So when they heard that, they raised their voice to God with one accord and said: “Lord, You are God, who made heaven and earth and the sea, and all that is in them,

15 and saying, “Men, why are you doing these things? We also are men with the same nature as you, and preach to you that you should turn from these useless things to the living God, who made the heaven, the earth, the sea, and all things that are in them,

17:24  God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands.

 

Light and darkness

Genesis 1:3-5 (NKJV)

Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day.

7 I form the light and create darkness,

I make peace and create calamity;

I, the Lord, do all these things.’

5 To Him who by wisdom made the heavens,

For His mercy endures forever;

And God called the firmament Heaven. So the evening and the morning were the second day.

And all the host of them by the breath of His mouth.

He turns the shadow of death into morning

And makes the day dark as night;

The Lord is His name.

 

Revelation 14:7 (NKJV)

saying with a loud voice, “Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water.”

 

The land

Genesis 1:9-10 (NKJV)

Then God said, “Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear”; and it was so. 10 And God called the dry land Earth, and the gathering together of the waters He called Seas. And God saw that it was good.

 

Psalm 95:5; 102:25; 104:5-6 (NKJV)

95:5 The sea is His, for He made it;

And His hands formed the dry land.

 

102:25 Of old You laid the foundation of the earth,

And the heavens are the work of Your hands.

 

104:5You who laid the foundations of the earth,

So that it should not be moved forever,

6You covered it with the deep as with a garment;

The waters stood above the mountains.

And God saw that it was good. 22 And God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.”

Before the difficult days come,

And the spirit will return to God who gave it.

 

The role of Jesus Christ in creation

All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.

And the breath of the Almighty gives me life.

30 You send forth Your Spirit, they are created;

And You renew the face of the earth.

  

Isaiah 40:12-13 (NKJV)

12 Who has measured the waters in the hollow of His hand,

Measured heaven with a span

And calculated the dust of the earth in a measure?

Weighed the mountains in scales

And the hills in a balance?

13Who has directed the Spirit of the Lord,

Or as His counselor has taught Him?

 

God in his mercy does not give us what we do deserve but God in his grace gives us what we don’t deserve.

God is testing us every day and has given us the right to make our own choices. Do you know which ones are the right choices in Gods mind?

Fear God, love God, honor God, and trust God with all your heart, mind and soul and you will receive and experience the joy of the promises of God’s blessings in His time.
