Worshiping the Creator God


Have you considered why it is important for Christians to identify God as Creator God and to fight against the movement that is currently teaching children that life could have originated without a Creator, that the laws of the universe seem to be accidental, and that natural selection is responsible for life as we know it?

The Bible begins with identifying God as the Creator and the last book tells that we are to:

“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.”  Revelation 14:7

Evolutionary “scientist” tell us that the Genesis story is a myth and that it cannot be interpreted literally. Many will allow a person to ‘acknowledge’ the possibility that God began the process, but become irate if God is referred to as the Creator. Serious Bible scholars, however, soon realize that to fail to accept God as Creator is to fail to accept what the Bible teaches from Genesis to Revelation.

The entire Bible teaches that God is not only the Triune God, but also Creator God. Toward the end of this post there are thirty-three examples of God’s identification as the Creator from 33 books from the Bible. Many more examples exist. I chose only these thirty-three for posting here.

Origins isn’t something new with which only recent generations have struggled. In Jonah’s day, when he was on a ship headed for Tarshish and a violent wind came up, the sailors of that day were frightened even more than usual when they learned that Jonah had offended the Creator God.

So he said to them, “I am a Hebrew; and I fear the LORD, the God of heaven, who made the sea and the dry land.” Then the men were exceedingly afraid, and said to him, “Why have you done this?” For the men knew that he fled from the presence of the LORD, because he had told them. Jonah 1:9-10

Keep in mind that these men were pagans, but they had heard of the power of the Creator. Later we see that they called on the Creator God to save them.

Many living during the end time will one day do the same thing. God’s judgment is always designed to bring repentance and open eyes to the truth. Jonah’s trip to Tarshish eventually caused him to preach to his worst enemies, the Ninevites, but it also brought light to those pagan sailors.

Creationist are not just trying to win an argument with evolutionist. It matters who is right on this one. I think many of the evolutionist sense this as well. While they may not go so far as to say that “science” can account for the origin of matter and life, the suggestion that it is ‘scientifically possible’ is thrown out there with the evolutionist’s story and the Genesis account doesn’t set well with evolutionist.

Still, the Bible is clear and God plainly speaks throughout it’s pages:

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth…Genesis 1:1

This is the book of the genealogy of Adam. In the day that God created man, He made him in the likeness of God. Genesis 5:1

For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy. Exodus 20:11

For ask now concerning the days that are past, which were before you, since the day that God created man on the earth, and ask from one end of heaven to the other, whether any great thing like this has happened, or anything like it has been heard. Deuteronomy 4:32

He lifts the poor from the dust— yes, from a pile of ashes! He treats them like princes, placing them in seats of honor. “For all the earth is the LORD’s, and he has set the world in order. 1 Samuel 2:8

…You have made heaven and earth. 2 Kings 19:15

…but the LORD made the heavens. 1 Chronicles 16:26

Hiram also said: Blessed be the LORD God of Israel, who made heaven and earth… 2 Chronicles 2:12

The Spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty gives me life. Job 33:4

The north and the south, You have created them; Tabor and Hermon rejoice in Your name. Psalm 89:12

He who mocks the poor reproaches his Maker; he who is glad at calamity will not go unpunished. Proverbs 17:5

Remember now your Creator in the days of your youth, before the difficult days come, and the years draw near when you say, “I have no pleasure in them.  Ecclesiastes 12:1

Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the LORD, The Creator of the ends of the earth, neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable. Isaiah 40:28

The Portion of Jacob is not like them, for He is the Maker of all things, and Israel is the tribe of His inheritance; The LORD of hosts is His name.  Jeremiah 10:16

For Israel has forgotten his Maker, and has built temples; Judah also has multiplied fortified cities; but I will send fire upon his cities, and it shall devour his palaces.  Hosea 8:14

For behold, He who forms mountains, and creates the wind, who declares to man what his thought is, and makes the morning darkness, who treads the high places of the earth; the LORD God of hosts is His name. Amos 4:13

And he said unto them, I am an Hebrew; and I fear the LORD, the God of heaven, which hath made the sea and the dry land. Jonah 1:9

The burden of the word of the LORD against Israel. Thus says the LORD, who stretches out the heavens, lays the foundation of the earth, and forms the spirit of man within him:  Zechariah 12:1

Have we not all one Father? Has not one God created us? Why do we deal treacherously with one another by profaning the covenant of the fathers? Malachi 2:10

… He answered and said to them, “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning made them male and female… Matthew 19:4

For in those days there will be tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the creation which God created until this time, nor ever shall be. Mark 13:19

All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. John 1:3

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… Acts 4:24

For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead…Romans 1:20

Yet for us there is one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we for Him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and through whom we live. 1 Corinthians 8:6

Now all things are of God… 2 Corinthians 5:18

For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.  Ephesians 2:10

He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. Colossians 1:15

For Adam was formed first, then Eve.  1 Timothy 2:13

But Christ came as High Priest of the good things to come, with the greater and more perfect tabernacle not made with hands, that is, not of this creation. Hebrews 9:11

With it we bless our God and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the similitude of God.  James 3:9

Therefore let those who suffer according to the will of God commit their souls to Him in doing good, as to a faithful Creator. 1 Peter 4:19

…and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation. 2 Peter 3:4

“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.”  Revelation 14:7

Because God has so plainly identified Himself, the choice is clear. We must decide if we will believe God or men.

And the Spirit and the bride say, ‘Come’. And let him that heareth say, ‘Come’. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely. Revelation 22:17

Will you believe ‘speculation or revelation’ was J. Vernon McGee’s question?
