Creation Bible Study: Day Of Reflections

Daily Devotions for Wednesday: by turtle30c

1/21/2015

Genesis 2:1-14 KJV
(1) Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
(2) And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
(3) And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.
(4) These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens,
(5) And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.
(6) But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.
(7) And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
(8) And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.
(9) And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
(10) And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads.
(11) The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold;
(12) And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone.
(13) And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia.
(14) And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which goeth toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates.

 

If you never take time to look at your work, or never take time to sit and reflect, you will never know what you accomplished. If you never know what you accomplished you can never enjoy it. If you take a moment to reflect you a least know what you did. You will at least behold your efforts for a moment. Yet the moment is short lived. Yet if you never take that moment you forget what you have done.

 

God is not man who forgets, so His need to reflect is not the same as ours. His time of rest is not the same as ours. He took day seven to enjoy the work of His hands. The labor and the bounty of His creation. I have to wonder did God go swimming in those four rivers, did he walk through the woods, the fields, and the deserts. Did God sit and ponder about the things He made and say well done? It appears God might of done that. He looked over His creation, enjoyed His work. Yet His labor was not finished. He still had work to do. Yet to day we are only thinking of reflection, taking time to enjoy. Throughout scripture there was always a time of rejoicing, a time to enjoy the good things of life. Retirement is suppose to be that way, but for many people it is not. The need to store for time of winter in life is short lived by those with disabilities, and those that loose their life from unforeseen accidents and health issues. If you never take a vacation even if you remain at home, you never enjoy anything from your labor. If you never take a day of rest you never enjoy anything from your work. If you never take time to enjoy life, you only are caught in endless war of work, sleep, eat, and doing the chores that must be done to survive. You never get the opportunity to enjoy life or reflect on those things important to you has a person. This time of rest is needed for the inner soul.
God’s rest might not be quite the same as ours because of His perfection, but our need for reflection is there. God only told man not to look back on sin. After all Lot was warned and lost his wife who did. Sin can not be changed, but what you do after can be. Yet sin should not even be in our thoughts. Our reflection needs to be on our hope that is found in Christ. The hope of how we see our world changing for good. Dream big and work hard and you will see the fruit of your hands. Yet even your fruit will pass away. God’s work in the physical since one day will pass away. God’s creation was not created for permanency but for a time. Yet He gives his children the hope of eternal life through faith in Christ Jesus. So when those things of this life is over, all things will become new and we will walk on the streets of the New Jerusalem with God.

 

Dear Heavenly Father thank you for the reflection of hope of eternal life, the one reflection what will become new forever and not pass away. In Jesus precious name, Amen.

Daily Bible Verses: Hebrews 4:3-5 KJV
(3) 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.
(4) 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.
(5) And in this place again, If they shall enter into my rest.

 

Daily God’s Promises: Psalms 23:1-3 KJV
(1) A Psalm of David. The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
(2) He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
(3) He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

Creation Bible Study: The Creation Of Man And Salvation

Daily Devotions For Tuesday: by turtle30c

1/20/2015

 

Genesis 1:24-31 KJV
(24) And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.
(25) And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
(26) And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
(27) So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
(28) And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
(29) And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
(30) And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.
(31) And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

 

God created all things in six days. Yet science is baffled by this announcement. A full day had already been established by the creation of light and darkness. Yet on day six nothing sprung forth from the earth like it had water. Instead things were formed into. If one takes time to read chapter two God form the animals and brought them to Adam to be named. Every animal species were created. Yet science believes that the fish and fowl came from one another. Yet the Bible teaches the beast or creatures that roamed the earth. God molded them.

 

In the scientific world man is consider a mammal. An intelligent mammal and more intelligent then any animal on the face of the earth. Yet man’s species is different from all animal species because it was given a living soul in the image of his Creator. He was created in the image of God. No animal or mammal can have that claim upon the earth except man. Despite how science classifies man in the lab, man never sprung from monkey or ape. Despite how science classifies man, the first woman was made from Adam’s rib. The second human formed was in the womb of his mother. Then another child was born. God salvation plan for man would come from the womb of woman. Without birth there is no life. Without life reproducing man cease to exist.

 

In 1 Timothy 2:13-15 KJV it is said that “For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.

 

Despite the fact woman was first to sin, she would be saved in child bearing. How so it is despite that her sin caused death, life would still spring forth from her and life would continue on. No one wants to think of their family line being cut off. Yet it happens to woman all the time around the world. Yet when Christ the redeemer comes life is sprung through the regeneration of the word of God. Christ comes spiritual birth for each new believer comes. Only God can give birth spiritually, yet we can be the tool God uses for this process if we allow. The generation of people might be cut off from us that bear no children, but we are not cut off from the kingdom of God if we live for Him and believe in faith in His word of our salvation plan through Christ Jesus. Christ physical offspring came with the words let us create man in His image. The Word spoken became life. Yet spiritual salvation did not come from first man and woman, instead man and woman because of their fall from Heaven brought forth death into eternity for mankind. Man was not born into heaven, but into imperfect world. A world created for continual change with life produced. Spirituality and faith can only come from God. God sent a man named Jesus created by His Word and was His Word through the virgin birth of a woman. Man and woman both created was formed by the God in His image by His word without natural conception of man from the dust of the ground. Christ formed in the womb into flesh of man, to demonstrate who God was by the sign of the virgin birth. Man form being in the image but never in the perfection of God. Never God in His holiness and perfection. Jesus came as the perfected word of God in the flesh in all holiness.

 

In some cultures that proclaim Jesus as only prophet say that he formed animals from the clay of the earth. These stories have truth within them. For we know God created all things by His word. Yet He used His hands to form even something that was spoken by His word and other things came forth from just the word being given. Healing process of man is much that same way. Sometimes God’s word is the only thing need to produce healing and other times it through a process.

 

Dear Heavenly Father keep us in mind that faith in God itself does not make new believers but your word makes knew believers by your spirit speaking to the individual. We are only the vessel made by clay. In Jesus precious name, Amen.

 

Daily Bible Verses: Genesis 2:21-23 KJV
(21) And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;
(22) And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
(23) And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.

 

Daily God’s Promises: Isaiah 44:24 KJV
(24) Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself;

Creation Bible Study: Life Would Come Out Of Death

Daily Devotions for Sunday: by turtle30c

1/19/2015

Genesis 1:20-23 KJV
(20) And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.
(21) And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
(22) And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.
(23) And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

 
Creatures coming out the water is not mention again in the chapter 2 of Genesis that explains more on the creation account. Yet what is true is life can only come from living water. Life can only come forth from the Word of God. God spoke to bring forth life from the water. There was no life in the ocean but death, death that produced the earth surfaces. Caused by decay, no, caused by gases from the big bang theory in the water. There was only death in water, yet life would come out of that water. Life would come out of death. It is like the old cliché which came first the chicken or the egg. In this case which came first death or life. Adam was placed in the garden of God, which speaks that death occurred first, no, death became upon disobedience, life exist before death, but the only life before death was God. In order for God create something from death, there had to be life. The life was God. God is the Alpha and the Omega. The first among all life. His Word brought forth life from the beginning. God’s Word has always brought forth life. The earth itself might have life coming out of it but in one since it is a dead matter.

 

Water is made of H2O, hydrogen and 2 part oxygen. God and His word being Oxygen and hydrogen being death. Hydrogen produces by itself carbon dioxide. A gas that produces death, a gas that produces decay, or non living matter over time. God allowed the production of death forth, so life could spring from it. Death would come again and go back into the bottom of the sea and land from the fish and the fowl. Yet what remained would continue to produce. Living things would bring forth more living things.

 

The idea of living water bring forth life came forth as early as Genesis one. When God’s word brought forth life from that water. Yet life has ceased in Israel in the day of Jeremiah. The wells and cisterns no long brought forth fruit from Israel. Yet at the time of Christ, Jesus speaks of himself being living water to the woman at the well in Samaria. He declares himself to bring forth spiritual life through faith. Christ word spoken brought forth life. Only one was need to bring forth death, and that was the serpent in the garden speaking lies to Eve. Serpent word brought forth death and destruction. How often times man word brings about death, yet Christ word no matter who speaks it always brings forth life. Even the devil when he is not twisting the word of God, brings forth life of the word of God. Only by his twisting does it bring about death.

 

Christ brings forth life because He is the true Word of God and brings forth life at the time of creation and even to the children of Israel at the time of His ministry on earth. His life he brought came through miracles of healing. Jesus desires healing to take place in a person life to bring forth hope to a lost and dying generation. Jesus words through parables brought hope to those that would understand and death to those who refuse to take heed. Law that was taught and followed in Christ day would bring forth death, without obedience to God. But life would spring forth from the spiritual laws of God understood through the law of man.

 

Jesus is the living water, that when one has a drink it will produce life. Life came forth on day five of creation right out of the sea and also produced not only the creatures of the sea but the birds that would fly. You might be a swimmer, or you might be a flyer, but whatever you are once you drink that water of life, you will produce more life and not death. A church or group producing death is not of God. There is no fruit and there is no production. What are you, life or death. Preach the word and in due season life will produce.

 

Dear Heavenly Father let your word of life through Jesus bring forth life in each individual that will drink the word of life upon belief in Jesus. In Jesus precious name, Amen.

 

Daily Bible Verses: Jeremiah 2:13 KJV
(13) For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water.

 

Daily God’s Promises: John 4:14 KJV
(14) But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

Every Sunday A Psalms: Creation Bible Study: Weekend Review

Daily Devotions for Saturday: by turtle30c

1/18/2015

Psalms 18:1-50 KJV
(1) To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David, the servant of the LORD, who spake unto the LORD the words of this song in the day that the LORD delivered him from the hand of all his enemies, and from the hand of Saul: And he said, I will love thee, O LORD, my strength.
(2) The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.
(3) I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.
(4) The sorrows of death compassed me, and the floods of ungodly men made me afraid.
(5) The sorrows of hell compassed me about: the snares of death prevented me.
(6) In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears.
(7) Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations also of the hills moved and were shaken, because he was wroth.
(8) There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it.
(9) He bowed the heavens also, and came down: and darkness was under his feet.
(10) And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: yea, he did fly upon the wings of the wind.
(11) He made darkness his secret place; his pavilion round about him were dark waters and thick clouds of the skies.
(12) At the brightness that was before him his thick clouds passed, hail stones and coals of fire.
(13) The LORD also thundered in the heavens, and the Highest gave his voice; hail stones and coals of fire.
(14) Yea, he sent out his arrows, and scattered them; and he shot out lightnings, and discomfited them.
(15) Then the channels of waters were seen, and the foundations of the world were discovered at thy rebuke, O LORD, at the blast of the breath of thy nostrils.
(16) He sent from above, he took me, he drew me out of many waters.
(17) He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them which hated me: for they were too strong for me.
(18) They prevented me in the day of my calamity: but the LORD was my stay.
(19) He brought me forth also into a large place; he delivered me, because he delighted in me.
(20) The LORD rewarded me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands hath he recompensed me.
(21) For I have kept the ways of the LORD, and have not wickedly departed from my God.
(22) For all his judgments were before me, and I did not put away his statutes from me.
(23) I was also upright before him, and I kept myself from mine iniquity.
(24) Therefore hath the LORD recompensed me according to my righteousness, according to the cleanness of my hands in his eyesight.
(25) With the merciful thou wilt shew thyself merciful; with an upright man thou wilt shew thyself upright;
(26) With the pure thou wilt shew thyself pure; and with the froward thou wilt shew thyself froward.
(27) For thou wilt save the afflicted people; but wilt bring down high looks.
(28) For thou wilt light my candle: the LORD my God will enlighten my darkness.
(29) For by thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over a wall.
(30) As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him.
(31) For who is God save the LORD? or who is a rock save our God?
(32) It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect.
(33) He maketh my feet like hinds’ feet, and setteth me upon my high places.
(34) He teacheth my hands to war, so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms.
(35) Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy right hand hath holden me up, and thy gentleness hath made me great.
(36) Thou hast enlarged my steps under me, that my feet did not slip.
(37) I have pursued mine enemies, and overtaken them: neither did I turn again till they were consumed.
(38) I have wounded them that they were not able to rise: they are fallen under my feet.
(39) For thou hast girded me with strength unto the battle: thou hast subdued under me those that rose up against me.
(40) Thou hast also given me the necks of mine enemies; that I might destroy them that hate me.
(41) They cried, but there was none to save them: even unto the LORD, but he answered them not.
(42) Then did I beat them small as the dust before the wind: I did cast them out as the dirt in the streets.
(43) Thou hast delivered me from the strivings of the people; and thou hast made me the head of the heathen: a people whom I have not known shall serve me.
(44) As soon as they hear of me, they shall obey me: the strangers shall submit themselves unto me.
(45) The strangers shall fade away, and be afraid out of their close places.
(46) The LORD liveth; and blessed be my rock; and let the God of my salvation be exalted.
(47) It is God that avengeth me, and subdueth the people under me.
(48) He delivereth me from mine enemies: yea, thou liftest me up above those that rise up against me: thou hast delivered me from the violent man.
(49) Therefore will I give thanks unto thee, O LORD, among the heathen, and sing praises unto thy name.
(50) Great deliverance giveth he to his king; and sheweth mercy to his anointed, to David, and to his seed for evermore.

 

Today we are reflecting on the battles of war and the birth of victory. Yet this week it been about creation. The talk of war has been under rated, and the birthing process of war not understood. With the first cry of war, to the actual pain of war, and darkness and the clouds that surround in the heat of battle. The nostrils of horse flaring and the breath of lions on the neck ready to devour. Yet the victory won with the right sword and arrows flying in the right direction, ends the darkness of battle.

 

Creation is compared to a battle, perhaps because of that volcano that David seen. The darkness of the earth when the ground trembled opening a deep ravine and the earth center being seen as molten lava ready to pour out. Causing black smoke to rise. Yet when the process is over things are clearly seen again.

 

God from the heavens above in the darkness creating the earth without form, and coming down to earth shadow by the darkness as by a tent. He dwelled in the darkness and said let there be light. And light happened and things began to change. The earth created out of the water giving conception to the earth surface. Water rolling around and about the earth surface.

 

Battle describe as herd of cows trampling the ground, with their noses flaring and their horns going forward toward the battle. Yet David reflections are only a way of telling his story of fighting the enemy and what it was like to have God’s protection in the heat of dark battle that surrounded him. The reflection of hope in the mist of the storm. The mist of not always being able to see and know God’s presence was with Him.

 

David has come to rest because the battle is over and He knows is strength and victory is due to the Lord. No one could of fought the thousands without God. David seen much battle and yet knew the presences of God. Last battle you were in did you know the power of God in your life, or did you feel only the pain of going alone through the unseen able future, without hope of a tomorrow or victory in your wake.

 

God in his wisdom created the battle of life toil and the actual battle field for a time of learning to trust Him. We think of the cross of Jesus on a hill far away, with a peaceful scene of Christ on the cross shown to children, yet the truth of the matter the earth did shake, and grown men fell to their knees as Christ died on the cross. Without death, there is no life and without life there is no death. Christ would descend into the deep of battle with His soul into hell, to set the captives free that rose out of the grave and walked in the streets of Jerusalem. The zombie acropolis happening before the eyes of people that never believed. The trauma of not knowing what laid ahead but the foreshadowing of what was to come. Christ would rise and be the first of the next generation to rise forth from the grave. The pain of death was like a violent storm, and yet He rose to victory from the dark domain.

 

Are you rising to victory or your dying in the storm. Where is your faith to trust in Jesus where is faith to trust in God. Where your faith to see the victory of the past to also be your gain in the current battle of your life.

 

Dear Heavenly Father give us hope and strength in the battle. Give us victory in the heat of battle, knowing you already won. In Jesus precious name, Amen.

 

Daily Bible Verses: 2 Samuel 22:10 KJV
(10) He bowed the heavens also, and came down; and darkness was under his feet.

 

Daily God’s Promises: Hebrews 11:3 KJV
(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.

Time Of Christ: Creation Bible Study: Time Is Framed

Daily Devotions for Saturday: by turtle30c

1/17/2015

Genesis 1:14-19 KJV
(14) And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:
(15) And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.
(16) And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.
(17) And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,
(18) And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.
(19) And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

 
Greatest sign upon the earth came from a star in the East. It came with brightness to proclaim the birth of a new King who name is Jesus. A King that would not rule while on earth but in heaven. A king that took only the power that was His from the beginning and used it to demonstrate who He was while with the people of the world. A King that was not like any other King that had come before or has come since. A King that would govern the heart of all that would receive Him. Yet the star only was a pointer of the season and time of renewal and change in leadership to the wise men and all that saw and understood its meaning. We do not know how many people the wise men in their journey shared the story of the star, but even if it was only Herod that story still would of spread.

 

The spreading of hope to the world by what season the world was in with the Lord, is perhaps the best evidence we have of how the galaxy of stars themselves was used to tell a people change was coming when one new star shone more brightly then all the rest. Yet it even easier to understand that people counted the seasons by the moon. Every culture known to man has used the sky as a telling of time. Yet people have gotten use to pulling out their watches, I pods and so forth to tell the time. There was a time were the local church bells told the time. It gave unity to the exactness of time, that modern watches and clocks do. Yet the Sun, Moon and stars have always demonstrated the seasons. People will say who has time for stargazing. I say who has time not to observe the simple things of the world but a busy person shut behind doors with no windows, or street lights that block the natural sky lights of the universe. People forget what is in the sky with only the observation of man’s lights.

 

God gave the lights to rule the day and night. We do not argue that the season often rule our lives, but forcing us to carry an umbrella in a huge downpour, or wearing coats in dead of winter when one goes out. Yet the lights of good and evil rule one be less powerful and that be the light of darkness. He gave evil only a short time to reign. When Christ return the enemy will be completely destroyed. The enemy first destruction date came with Christ coming. Enemy second destruction day came with the destruction of sin and death. And the third destruction when the enemy is locked away for eternity. To be with God is to have the devil locked away from your life, yet the rest of the world one is waiting for the season of destruction of evil for good.

 

Will the heavens not rejoice at Christ coming. Will not the whole world sing. Will we ignore the time we live in and only look to witchcraft of astrology for time we live in, a source that is used to control the mind by wishing good things for people, giving them a hope on a bad day and answers of that just did not line up with what happened on my good day, that is false idea. Yet God in his wisdom uses his creation to point the time of restoration has will as the fall of man, through the falling stars in the sky. The stars can not save you, but the saints are alive in heaven and are not meant for worship either. God said to worship Him alone.

 

The more God puts things in motion the more man twist God’s simple creation meaning. He created for timeline and we create a sundial, and then a watch. That is the human wrecking department or the human corruption department. Yet it always sounded like a good idea at the time. Yet the watch governs people all day long. Where is God in the watch, no where to be found. Yet He still the governor of day and night and the seasons that effect what we wear and whether we need sunglasses or plain glasses. What are you seeing with today. The time and the seasons of the earth through the lights of the sky or only the wrist watch that dictates our task throughout the day. I think most would say a little of both.

 

God is good with all He creation has a purpose for mankind to see the wisdom of His plan. Yet we frame the watch, and ignore the seasons by earthly protections for the season we are in. Never taking time to understanding the beauty of the time we are living in. The star that pointed to Christ for a reason not just a season. It was to bring the world the hope of God to all not just a few.

 

Dear Heavenly Father thank you for creating the stars, moon and sun to tell us the seasons and tell us of the greatest season of the all of the restoration of the world to you through Christ Jesus. In Jesus precious name, Amen.

 

Daily Bible Verses: Amos 5:8 KJV
(8) Seek him that maketh the seven stars and Orion, and turneth the shadow of death into the morning, and maketh the day dark with night: that calleth for the waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth: The LORD is his name:

 
Daily God’s Promises: Matthew 2:2 KJV
(2) Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.

Genesis 1:6-13 KJV
(6) And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.
(7) And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.
(8) And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.
(9) And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.
(10) And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.
(11) And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
(12) And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
(13) And the evening and the morning were the third day.

 

Someone was kind to remind me of something I written before concerning the creation of the earth. There several places upon the earth whether you are underground, near the shore that explains the process of land development. The one I left out yesterday was the oil and gas coming up out the ocean floor forming a decay of killing all things living, but producing a decay or a rot of things in the ocean. Producing over a long period of time earth soil. The movie Water World has a scene where they bury their dying or criminals that are punished for life into what appears to be a muddy substance. I sure there are scientific words for it. Yet what it symbolizes is that process of decay to reproduce clay or mire, swampy residue, to develop earth substance once more. Things have to die for things to produce and things have to live for things to die. Algae having life and dying producing land mass all in one day, or God’s word saying let earth form out of the water and divide itself from the water.

 

Let us not leave the process of water dividing into heaven and to the earth. Water above and water below and earth would be created below to form the islands of the world. We have water coming down and water spring up from below the earth. When the flood of Noah day came the water below poured down as the water below sprung up. Imagine a water tank being filled and causing a vacuum that would suck the world clean. The fire that is going to reign down one day is said to be like this flood. Spring up from below and pouring down from above. The movie Dante Peak only shows a brief glimpse of what it might look like, but picture much worse.

 

Morbid pictures help only in imagery of a process of God’s word being spoken and becoming. Christ was conceived by the Hovering the Holy Spirit and the word coming to pass of conception of a virgin, who would be a virgin until after the birth of Jesus. God hovered over the earth as it sprung from virgin form into life. Seeds like man came forth from the ground and brought forth life. Science understand the capabilities of dna breakdown of most things. Yet for the right combinations to be formed to create any one things is miracle. Why is not new seeds being grown today if this happened at the time of creation. There is discoveries of new plants all the time. Did it come from cross breeding or from new seed forming to produce by some other natural means. Science is better source then me on this issue. But the process continues even today. Nothing can not come from nothing and this true. God’s word holds power.

 

When Jesus calmed the sea the disciples were utterly amazed. Yet people struggle with God creating the earth, that He demonstrated his power in Christ day to calm. We sit and ask if God said how can it be, instead of saying yes Lord according to your word, because of power to create by the spoken word to bring forth life and death in a process that formed in one day the planet has we know it today.

 

Yes Lord has your Word speaks let those things that is to come happen as your design should be our plea. We understand what earth looks like but spiritual realm is only what we can conceive and understand by your visions to man. Gives us hope by the evidence of your word spring hope from the ground. Water us as you water the seeds of our earth to develop life from each seed.

 

Dear Heavenly Father thank you for the power of word to create and yet science is baffled by creation. In Jesus precious name, Amen.

 

Daily Bible Verses: Proverbs 8:24-30 KJV
(24) When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water.
(25) Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth:
(26) While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world.
(27) When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth:
(28) When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep:
(29) When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth:
(30) Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him;

Bible Study On Creation: The Blast Of Thy Breath from Thy Nostrils

Daily Devotions for Thursday: by turtle30c

1/15/2015

Psalms 18:15 KJV
(15) Then the channels of waters were seen, and the foundations of the world were discovered at thy rebuke, O LORD, at the blast of the breath of thy nostrils.

 

 

Imagery of the God creating the heavens and the earth can be described in a form of terror as King David described his fleeing and deliverance from King Saul. He see the fiery pit of perhaps a volcano. Seen the molten lava perhaps mold into something as it cooled. And instead of a calming picture of God creating the heavens and earth, a blast or a big bang theory was arrived at. Yet when I think of creation I am more at thinking of a piece of clay being molded and yet perhaps with no particular shape, this imagery is only with the idea of things being framed from the word of God.

 

However you view the earth and heaven being formed one can grasp it came about by the word of God going forth and becoming. The breath of God being like the heat of volcano and lightening in the storm of all that heat. Yet with that knowledge God’s first word to man is God created the heavens and the earth. God does show man through out the ages before science ever became a study in a lab how the earth became. It not our century that these question came into being, but generation even before us.

 

In God’s word came the panoramic view of God’s word coming without form. Without molding from his hands to water covering the deep. In coal caves water pockets are formed leaving one imagery understood how water could remain covering the earth. As water pulls back at his word uncovering the rock formations that would be earth surface of rock on day two. Yet there seems to be a rest moment between day one and day two as God said let there be light and He divide the darkness from the face of the earth with the light. Giving each a time to govern the earth.

 

God’s word ever becoming at his breath, and yet light not fully explained beyond God said so. Man can create light but it has to have energy source or be a time of reflectant that retains to form a glow stick. If one thinks about light from the sun and understand some basic science we know the light from the sun only helps the elements of our world produce heat upon the earth.

 

Many things can be found in scripture, yet are is a person studying scripture along with the worlds teaching of how the earth of formed. In many cases no one is teaching but saying God created. Saying take God at his word and stop adding to it, never understanding that God’s word says more about creation then just “God said”. Yet God said more to the heart and spirit of man over time of how things came to be. If we can listen God still speaks the word of truth to our hearts without a lab or science room. He spoken in the large room called life and in the smallest room of our hearts. Take time to listen to God’s small voice to day and the thunder of His voice to the world. Be willing to see the vastness of God’s creating process beyond the Word God spoke and yet understand that all God did with His Spirit going forth and creating.

 

Dear Heavenly Father thank you for saying let there be, as well as the continual demonstration of your creating process in and below our earth surface. In Jesus precious name, Amen.
