In the beginning the end God.

This morning in corporate prayer, one said she was reading through the book of Jeremiah, and noticed how often God was exalted as Creator. Another said "In the beginning God..." Then one said that His Creation (as a verb) is the foundation of all things. I thought, "No wonder the devil inspired Darwin with the theory of evolution, he wanted to strike at the foundation!"

Strategy~we are not unaware of his schemes. The flaw of the theory is that it has no foundation. (see the movie "Expelled") It always comes back to the question, "what is the origin of life?" to which there is only One answer: In the beginning God...nothing else makes any understandable, logical sense. Nothing. It takes a greater stretch by far to believe such intricate details such as the functioning of the human body came from a cosmic explosion than to believe there is a God who loves us....He is so real!

When I got home I was reading in Numbers 2, 3 where God is numbering the clans and telling them where to set up camp. He strategically placed them North, South, East, & West. It was always significant who was on the East facing the rising sun. (That is the way the tabernacle faced) I began to think about how we live in the "West". Since the world is round, why are we "west"? Well, Israel of course! It is the epicenter. Just as our time and calendar are centered on Christ, so is our direction. How amazing is our God to establish unchangeable things pointing us to Him!

He is the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End. It's all about God.
  • In the Creator...Foundation.
  • In the mean Sustainer...Impartation & Sanctification
  • In the Redeemer...Salvation & Redemption

We discussed this very issue this morning in Bible Study! Oh how I love how God is showing the same thing to people all across the country and world! One of the ladies in my study has the movie "Expelled". I'm going to borrow it from her!
