Alpha and Omega Series, Part 5

Genesis 1:26

Continuing our series titled, “Alpha and Omega”; literally the beginning & the end

-- Examining two critical questions: How did we get here? How does it end?

Ω Introduction


-- Psalm 14:1, “Only fools say in their hearts, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, and their actions are evil; not one of them does good!”

-- All energy in the universe requires a source … it had to start somewhere

-- There is an irrational logic trying to prove something popped up from nothing

- So, what we find ourselves in is a situation what separates all of us

-- If you do not believe this account, you fall into one of these two categories:

1. Theistic Evolutionist: Believes that God is real, yet He used evolution to evolve all things in this world to include the creation of mankind

2. Naturalistic Evolutionist (which most non-believers are): Believes that everything evolved by accident, and that there is no God nor Creator

-- Claims to use the formula: “Nobody times Nothing equals Everything!”

- As a believer, we have to be willing to refute the commentaries of today

-- It is critical that we are able to demonstrate a clear logic in our thinking

-- IMP: Not only clear logic, but a Biblically based explanation of Creation

-- APP: It is not our place to defend God; but know/use Word to demonstrate truth

- IMP: There is NOTHING that supports something evolved from anything

-- We also saw that creatures on this Earth MUST produce their own kind

-- This is a fact of science: which biologist confirm and geneticists stand on!!!

- Very important to grasp here is the order of things that have been created

-- We’ve seen: Earth, the atmosphere, the land and seas, the plants and vegetation

-- Then we had the creatures in the sea and the animals on the land

-- And now, we get to the crown of God’s creation … the prize of His heart

- I realize this is Christmas week, and this is an UNUSUAL message for this time

-- Most preaching from the Gospel of Luke today, and they should (as God leads)

-- God placed this on my heart so we might begin to grasp the WHY we’re created

- Read Genesis 1:26 / Pray

Ω Point 1 – God’s Sovereignty

- One thing that we see which becomes VERY evident:

-- GOD SAID … there is no discussion, when He speaks there is instant action

- This action causes creation to begin instantly; no delay; no pause; no meetings

-- APP: From this, we can def. agree that when God speaks – action is demanded

- Throughout this series we have seen where God commands, and the Earth obeys

- But here, at the crowning of God’s creation … something amazing happens

- God creates what He deems “in His own image”; unlike anything else seen

- The Earth was created to reveal how majestic God is in His craftsmanship

- The sky (heaven) was put into place for the purpose of protecting the Earth

- The land was ordered into place for God’s purpose for creation to live on
