Genesis 1:1-2 – “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.” NKJV
This is a beautiful day to be alive and I have been enjoying a delightful time of Coffee & Conversation with the Lord this morning. We talked about a conversation I had recently with a College Professor about Creation.
That individual has 2 PhDs in areas of science and is a devout evolutionist but also claims to be a devout Christian. Our conversation led to many areas but finally, this individual said, “You just need to study the Tree of Life.” I replied, “I have studied the “Word of Life and my name is in the Book of Life, so I believe that I understand the Tree of Life that God has established.”
The response was, “Oh the Bible, that outdated, error-filled book of fables and myths.” Okay, now I have a problem with one area of his devoutness, and it is not regarding his belief in evolution. I have a problem with that too, but this person denied the validity of the Bible. He questioned the very existence of the God of the Bible but believed there is a higher intelligence, but it is interwoven in nature and is not a single entity.
I will not mention the church this individual was a part of because I know another person who attends there and that is not their view. This reminds me of a college professor I had years ago with whom I got into several debates and disproved his theories and assertions in class and ended up being forbidden to speak in class or else I would fail the class.
I do not doubt that many in Academia and the “so-called” intellectual community, believe as does this individual. I do not doubt that there are those taught by our public school system who have been fed this type of fallacy and do not believe or are not sure what they believe about creation and evolution. I do not fall into that category, I know exactly what I believe, and it begins, “IN THE BEGINNING GOD CREATED…”
Therefore, believing the first verse of the first chapter of the Bible, I can go on to believe the rest of the Bible. I believe that Jesus came in the flesh, was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on the cross for us, rose again on the third day, ascended to the right hand of the throne of the Father, and now makes intercession for us and is coming back as He said.
With that settled, I have received Jesus as my savior, repented of my sins, and have been transferred from the kingdom of darkness into God’s marvelous light. I am Born Again! My eternal soul will live forever in the presence of the Almighty God, the God of the Bible and I am at perfect peace with that. It does not matter what happens in this world that will not change.
They may, at some point in time, separate my head from my mortal body but that will not change my faith only my location. I will then be absent from the body but present with the Lord! I rejoice in Genesis 1:1 and the door it opens! Rejoice, my friends, rejoice redemption draws near!
May the richest of God’s Blessings flow to and through you as you enjoy this wonderful day He has prepared.
