1. One that creates
2. Creator God. Used with “The”
In the beginning God…
These first four words of the Bible form the foundation for faith. Believe these words, and you can believe all that follows in the Bible. I love to read the Genesis account of creation. We know from our previous lesson that God is omnipresent. Time and space isn’t a concept in His world. He is the ultimate time traveler!
I still marvel at Gods creative power. Six years ago, Patti and I were surprised to find out we were about to have triplet daughters. For a number of reasons, we knew there was a possibility of multiples. We used in-vitro fertilization, so automatically, it was a possibility. Multiples run in my family and lucky us, it was my generation’s time! My brother Shawn already had a set of twins and my cousin has twins. Two of our triplets are identical. Our doctor said, “As good as I am, I can’t do that!” An egg splitting is totally a God thing.
As I reflect on the uniqueness of my girls, I started thinking about how God continues to create today. God gave man the knowledge to perform the procedure that ultimately produced our daughters. We like to think that God wanted to remind us that He was the author of creation by splitting that egg. In fact, He used his creative power to create each one of us, unique as we are!
I’m glad we are all unique…I don’t think the world could handle another me.
Creation – Another view
After creating heaven and earth, God created Adam and Eve. And the first thing he said was “DON’T!”
“Don’t what?” Adam replied.
“Don’t eat the forbidden fruit.” God said.
“Forbidden fruit? We have forbidden fruit? Hey Eve… we have forbidden fruit!!!!!”
“Do NOT eat the fruit!” said God.
“Because I am your Father and I said so!” God replied, wondering why He hadn’t stopped creation after making the elephants.
A few minutes later, God saw His children having an apple break and He was ticked!
“Didn’t I tell you not to eat the fruit?” God asked.
“Uh huh,” Adam replied.
“Then why did you?” said the Father.
“I don’t know,” said Eve.
“She started it!” Adam said.
Having had it with the two of them, God’s punishment was that Adam and Eve should have children of their own.
Thus the pattern was set and it has never changed.
