The Evolution Revolution, The Case For Creation, Part 3

The largest proof of the reality of a recent creation to the Christian is the Bible. As mentioned throughout this blog however, many claim a belief in the Bible, however after examining their core understanding, it is then realized their professed belief in the scriptures is often superficial. I have noticed that when a person dismisses one doctrine, investigation will reveal they often refuse to believe in others as well. Today young people are bombarded by our media, government, press, scientists, intelligentsia and education system, with the idea that evolution is fact; and in contrast, to submit to a recent creation is equivalent to believing in Aesop’s Fables or Grimm’s Fairy Tales. Our goal is to reveal that a recent creation, and Genesis, chapters 1-11, are totally trustworthy, and can be 100% verified by the facts. Let us examine the scriptures (KJV): Please carefully examine Genesis 1:5,8,13,19,23,31. You will notice the repetition of the phrase “evening and the morning.” This obviously reveals that God is referring to a literal 24 hour day and NOT eons or ages. The Hebrew word for the “day” of creation week, yom, means a 24 hour day in the great majority of cases in the Old Testament. Now look at this powerful proof text in Exodus 20:11: “For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.” Notice how our sabbath day of rest was modeled after His day of rest during creation week. God’s 7 day week of creation was the model for our week. The following verse expounds on the spontaneity of creation as God spoke and things were immediately created- Psalms 33:6: “By the word of the Lord were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.” This does not sound like eons to me. The Lord created the heavens faster than I typed this sentence. Let us move on to the Gospel accounts. Matthew 19:4: “And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them AT THE BEGINNING made them male and female..” Mark 10:6: “But from the BEGINNING OF THE CREATION God made them male and female.” Again, there are absolutely no gaps, ages and eons. God made Adam and Eve during creation week at the beginning of all things. It is easy to study the geneology from Adam to Jesus Christ and come up with about 4,000 years. Add 2,000 years to get us up to the current time and you have creation week at about 6,000 years ago. Professing Christians who insist on compromising with the world through the mantra of “millions and billions,” must come to the realization that they do not believe in the Bible. What could be plainer? Another text which validates a recent creation is Luke 1:70: “As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets, which HAVE BEEN SINCE THE WORLD BEGAN…” Hence the prophets go back to the beginning of the world and we do not have to search for “missing links” since all of the links are here. Here is a parallel passage that drives home this truth even moreso: Acts 3:21: “Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which GOD HATH SPOKEN BY THE MOUTH OF ALL HIS HOLY PROPHETS SINCE THE WORLD BEGAN.” ***To not believe in a recent creation is not to believe in the Bible.*** Let us conclude this study with another passage that speaks of our day of rest, which is modeled after God’s day of rest in creation week. Hebrews 4:3-4, 10: “For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world. For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works…For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his.” Evolution has no place in the Word of God. Our Lord has a purpose and a time for everything, and did not “wind up the world” and then leave it for “millions and billions” of years as some kind of primeval soup from which man eventually dropped his fins , crawled out of the water, and progressed from a Neanderthal to modern man. To believe that our complex universe evolved from random chance over countless eons is like a tornado going through a junk yard and the Taj Mahal being the end result. Evolutionists have a very small view of God. We serve a mighty and an awesome God who spoke the universe into being. He created everything out of absolutely nothing (Ex Nihilo). He simply willed it into existance because He is Lord of all. Hebrews 11:3 “Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.”
