Summary: Part 7a reflects on the creation of man, and our purpose in this world to rule over creation; but to do so in worship of a mighty Creator. (Ref: Genesis 1:26)

Creation Series, Part 7a

Genesis 1:26


- This morning, we begin the conclusion of our series on Creation

- Let me ask … has this series helped you understand God’s miraculous work?

-- If your answer is yes, I want to encourage you to be bold enough to share it

-- Remember that these messages are not only available online, but on CD as well

- What’s important to keep VERY close at hand is the things we have discussed

- 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!”

- 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?

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

- This morning, I want to remind you of the 10 year Anniversary of September 11

- 10 years ago our world changed forever; much as it did following Pearl Harbor

- We awoke the following day to a new set of rules and precautions and changes

- But, what didn’t change is that God is still in control and He was NOT surprised

- Many in America are still trying to figure out why these things happened

- I’ll admit I don’t have all the answers; but I think we can discover some together

- If we would take the time to read God’s Word, we can learn about God’s “whys?”

- 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. The fish in the sea and the birds in the sky

7. Last Sunday night we saw the creation of the animals which inhabit this

- This morning, it is my prayer that we would see the will of the Lord -- FIRST

- And through that understand the reason for our creation to fulfill His plan

- Stand and read Genesis 1:26

- Pray

Point 1 – God’s Sovereignty (26)

- One thing that we see which becomes VERY evident; is throughout we have:

-- 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

- This morning, I’d like us to take this apart and really grasp God’s commands

-- This evening, we are going to get into all the details of this section so come back

- 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 on Earth today

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

- The seas were ordered into place for God to create life in them in swarms

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

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

- The sun and stars and even the moon (celestials) were put into place for light

- But all of this comes down to one purpose: God created these for His purpose

- And now, we have the crown of His creation and it really is where we must tune in

- To be honest, most spend more time trying to avoid what God says in their lives

- It is our rebellion to any authority that drives our current placement in life

- On a larger scale, this nation is in complete rebellion to God and He is sovereign

- Could we have changed Sept 11; no, not personally … we are not in charge of that
