Summary: This series focuses on the Biblical facts of Creation, and using Scripture puts to rest the scientific opinions of how the world was formed. Part 6 begins the final day of creation with the creation of the cattle, creeping things, and the beasts of the E

Creation Series, Part 6

Genesis 1:24-25


- We are right in the middle of a series discussing the Creation of everything we see

- 1) We have a Creator, He is God, and He has given us a clear account of His story

- 2) What we find ourselves in is a situation that separates all of us: Do we believe?

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

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

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

-- Evolution uses the formula: “Nobody times Nothing equals Everything!”

-- This is absolutely the wrong angle for us and is at the heart of our beliefs

- Before we can even see the Redeemer, who is Jesus, we must see the Creator

-- We must see the Glory of a Creator who specifically put each thing into place

- APP: If we cannot see the work of the Creator; can we see the work of a Messiah?

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

- Scientists, teachers, and pundits from all walks of life wish to denounce Creation

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

-- But, not only clear logic … but a Biblically based explanation to the Creation account

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

- What we have seen to date is that God has created:

1. The Earth

2. The skies above (including the atmosphere)

3. The land and the seas

4. The vegetation that we see around us

5. The lights in the sky (to include the sun and the stars)

6. (This morning) the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky

- Stand and read Genesis 1:24-25

- Pray

Point 1 – Why must we know what Creation is about?

- Rev John Macarthur wrote, “My friend Ron handed me a little article out of the Los Angeles Times from Friday, June 25...just a couple of weeks ago. It says, "A Delta II rocket carried a NASA telescope off Cape Canaveral Thursday on a three-year, 204 million dollar mission to try to discover the origin of the universe." Now that's 204 of your million dollars, and mine, to try to find out what's in the first chapter of Genesis. Amazing.”

- It is amazing to consider how much we spend to examine what is written right here

- This evening we are going to just take a sneak peak at Day 6 of creation

- It is important that we set up the foundation for the crowning of God’s creation

-- So that we will understand the magnificence of His final creation; mankind

- This morning we examined the creation of the fish and the birds

-- Things that were commanded to reproduce; according to its own kind

-- When they reproduced, God spoke a blessing upon them (Gen 1:23)

-- This is God’s stamp of approval that not only were they good: but to make more

- Rev 22:18-19 is something I want each of us to consider this evening and for the remainder of this series: “For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book. And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.”

- When God speaks and gives direction as to how things are/were; that settles it!

- We must be VERY cautious about putting our own stamp on these things

-- God did not ask our opinion; He does not ask for our “ok”; He asks for worship

- APP: Thus, we must be purposely expository (“A well-written exposition remains focused on its topic and lists events in chronological order”, - Wikipedia)

-- There is no opinion in what is being said; it simply represents the facts … period

- The Creation account is just that; it is expository and it is where we find ourselves

-- Just like the examination we are doing in Galatians on Wednesday nights

-- There is more than meets the eye (more than words on paper); there is God’s intention

- TRANS: When we see what God is says in verses 24 and 25, the meaning is clear!
