Creator God

Dear Brethren,

We find ourselves living in an increasingly Godless society.  Way down deep I still believe that there are many people who lament the direction in which our nation is headed.  When I watch the evening news anchorman, and then compare his thoughts, ideology and philosophy with those of my neighbors, it is clear that their views are diametrically opposed.  There is definitely a powerful movement in government, media, and even in our schools to ‘liberate’ everyday Americans from anything and everything having to do with our Creator God

There is a concerted effort to assail everything having to do with morality, virtue, goodness and decency, and consign them to the past.  Cheating, crime, Godlessness, abuse and unfaithfulness are winked at and considered to be personal choices and rights of every citizen.  Appreciation for the countless blessings that have been bestowed on this once-great country are becoming a thing of the past.  We find ourselves in a society filled with iniquity that Jesus describes as being, “Like the days of Noah before the flood.”

“God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually… But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.  For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark.”  (Genesis 6:5, Matthew 24:37-38)

Our nation is rapidly turning away from, and forgetting our Creator God.  Who today relies on the word of God in the conduct of their daily business?  Who yet believes that the Bible is the true word of God in writing?  Every time someone is thrust into the public eye, if they profess a semblance of Christianity, they are relegated to the status of foolish buffoons by the press.  ‘Political Correctness’ demands that religious people be treated as though they were backward, uninformed and even dangerous to themselves and society.  Surely, the status of our culture today mimics that of ancient Israel as they were about to be carried away into captivity and lost from the view of the world.  Israel went into captivity and bondage because they forsook God’s Sabbath and turned to other gods.  The tribe of Judah went into captivity a hundred and twenty years after Israel did – and for the very same reasons – they forgot their Creator God.

Ours is a very hostile environment in which to preach the Gospel message of the soon coming Kingdom of God to be established on earth.  And yet God is calling a few at this eleventh hour into assemblies in which they are able to grow spiritually and become His children (Matthew 20:1-16).  They must learn that the word of God is the foundation of knowledge, because that is the only basis on which to build a Godly life.  It is only within the pages of Scripture that they will find the proper tools to erect the structure of a Christian life.  Those tools are God’s spiritual principles that are to be sought out and used daily.  God’s principles are for our use today – and not reserved just for the Kingdom of God tomorrow.

Do we really comprehend how great our Creator God is?  He is so much greater than the vast majority of mankind supposes.  God’s word reveals that God's greatness is too wonderful for man's heart.  God knows our every thought.  God is not somewhat like a man that we might contend with Him, because His power is limitless and He is all knowing (Numbers 23:19).  He is not mocked by those with ulterior motives (Galatians 6:7).

“Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable.”  (Psalm 145:3)

The vast limitless outer space of the universe with its billions of years of time gone by attest to how immeasurably great our Creator God is.  Likewise the deep inner space of the sub atomic world of unfathomable matter is evidence of how impossible it is for man to compare himself to our Loving Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, by whom He created all things.

“[God the Father] has in these last days spoken unto us by His Son, whom He hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also He [created] the worlds; Who being the brightness of His glory, and the express image of His person, and upholding [the universe] by the word of His power, when He had purged sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high.”  (Hebrews 1:2-3)

In today’s sermon we will explore how Jesus has revealed Himself as Creator God so that we might know and stand in awe of Him.
