Genesis 1:1

Genesis 1:1 KJV 1900
1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
The book of Genesis is the book of beginnings, it describes where we came from, it declares what is wrong with us, it discloses where we are going
It lays the foundations of human institutions
Now unlike any other time in our lifetimes we must unapologetically proclaim what God unilaterally declares
The world has rejected the Creator rather
Romans 1:18–25 (KJV 1900) — 18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; 19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. 20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: 21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. 24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

The Bible declares that you are to Worship Christ as The Creator

I. The Creator’s Identity

Who is the Creator?
The deist of the 17th century postulated the God was no more than a Great Clock winder have created the world and then leaving it alone to its own devices
The Bible is very emphatic concerning the the identity of the Creator.
In the beginning was the Word
John 1:1–5 KJV 1900
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
John 1:14 KJV 1900
14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
Jesus is the Word
“All things were made by him”
everything that is, is made by Him
“In him was life and light”
Jesus owns the title deed to all the Universe both as Creator and Redeemer
Colossians 1:13–20 KJV 1900
13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: 14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: 15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: 16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: 17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. 19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; 20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.
It all belongs to Him
Whether it is in Heaven or Earth it is His
Whether it is visible or invisible it is His
It is the reprobate mind that rejects the identity of the creator
Romans 1:28 KJV 1900
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
Man’s objection to the God of the Bible is not scientific it is sinful

II. The Creator’s Initiative

The Creation is not the product of a random cosmic accident but the result of an intentional divine action
"so called” science attempts to explain our origin by a random bang and that you are the product of millions of years of random mutations yet such a proposition demands you place your faith in chaos instead of a creator
By His Will
God “created”
While men have the ability to “make or form” only God can create out of nothing.
Hebrews 3:4 KJV 1900
4 For every house is builded by some man; but he that built all things is God.
Jesus by His own initiative made a conscience decision to create the creation
You are not an accident but you are “fearfully and wonderfully made”
By His Word
Hebrews 11:3 KJV 1900
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.
There is power in His Word
God exercised His will by the speaking of His word

III. The Creator’s Imagination

Christ is designer
Psalm 19:1 KJV 1900
1 The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament sheweth his handywork.
The universe of matter is fashioned by His design
The institutions of man are also fashioned by His design

IV. The Creator’s Intention

He made it for His pleasure
Revelation 4:11 KJV 1900
11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.
He made it for His praise
Psalm 148:5 KJV 1900
5 Let them praise the name of the Lord: For he commanded, and they were created.
He made it for His people

Conclusion Statement

Colossians 3:10 (KJV 1900) — 10 And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:

Worship Christ by recognizing Him as your Creator.
