Yes..God is the Creator of all Life


For the LORD is God, and he created the heavens and earth and put everything in place. He made the world to be lived in, not to be a place of empty chaos. “I am the LORD,” he says, “and there is no other. (Isaiah 45:18 NLT)
I wanted to post the above scripture because it is a simple and direct rebuke from God of those who hold to the belief that the world was not created by an “intelligent designer” (man’s phrase not mine). Our esteemed schools insist on vehement denouncement of anyone who would dare to suggest that creationism be taught because there is no "proof". The sun hanging above their heads everyday providing light so all can see apparently is not enough "proof".

I for one have taught my children that God is the creator and sustainer of all life…period. The above scripture is plain speaking and unambiguous. If one wishes to argue this point, they will not be arguing with me but the God of all creation. The God who created them. The God who allows them to wake up every morning. The God who gives them the air that they breathe. The God who gives them ability to move their limbs. The God who provides for the food they eat. And the God who protects them each and every minute of every day from the Devil who is trying to destroy them all the time. Oh I know that most who scoff at this position also claim that they don’t believe in a Devil either. However he knows who they are and he and his millions of satanic messengers are always trying to destroy our lives…but for the grace and protection of the living God.

On this last point, I believe the following scripture written by the Apostle Paul is most fitting (2nd Peter 3:1-10 NLT):

This is my second letter to you, dear friends, and in both of them I have tried to stimulate your wholesome thinking and refresh your memory. I want you to remember what the holy prophets said long ago and what our Lord and Savior commanded through your apostles.

Most importantly, I want to remind you that in the last days scoffers will come, mocking the truth and following their own desires. They will say, “What happened to the promise that Jesus is coming again? From before the times of our ancestors, everything has remained the same since the world was first created.

They deliberately forget that God made the heavens by the word of his command, and he brought the earth out from the water and surrounded it with water. Then he used the water to destroy the ancient world with a mighty flood. And by the same word, the present heavens and earth have been stored up for fire. They are being kept for the day of judgment, when ungodly people will be destroyed. But you must not forget this one thing, dear friends: A day is like a thousand years to the Lord, and a thousand years is like a day. The Lord isn’t really being slow about his promise, as some people think. No, he is being patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent.

But the day of the Lord will come as unexpectedly as a thief. Then the heavens will pass away with a terrible noise, and the very elements themselves will disappear in fire, and the earth and everything on it will be found to deserve judgment.

Amen Shaw! This is powerful!

I'm reminded that one day EVERY knee will bow before the LIVING GOD. What one may or may not choose to believe now will surely see the LIGHT on that day.

My prayer is that ALL will come to know HIM now. Sadly, we know this will not come to pass as some will continue to reject that JESUS Christ is LORD and that in our wretchedness and filthiness (SINNERS) we need HIM (Savior). They will continue to promote everything or anything else as the 'creator' of this world and 'man' other than GOD who is the Creator of all.

May the revelation of TRUTH come to many before that Day!

As one who stood with you in the teachings of our children I agree!

Funerals for the Unsaved or Unbelievers

I am not a leader of a church, but I oftentimes wonder how does one lead a funeral service for someone who dies without knowing Jesus Christ as Lord? Admittedly I have not been to many funerals in my lifetime, though they are appearing to come more frequently lately, but the fact is that funerals are held daily throughout the world and as such this is a pertinent question to someone just about every day.

I’ve been to the funeral where the person lived a fairly routine life, taking care of their families and other responsibilities as best they could, paying taxes and doing the average things that we as human beings do on a consistent basis. They however had no visible relationship with God through His son Jesus Christ. When this person dies, the surviving family members are oftentimes left scrambling trying to find a person and a place to officiate the funeral services – generally because the deceased did not have a regular church that they attended. Funeral homes sometimes serve this f…

Scripture: Are You a Wheat or Weed?

(Matthew 23: 24-30 NIV): Jesus told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field. But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away. When the wheat sprouted and formed heads, then the weeds also appeared. “The owner’s servants came to him and said, ‘Sir, didn’t you sow good seed in your field? Where then did the weeds come from?’ ‘‘An enemy did this,’ he replied. “The servants asked him, ‘Do you want us to go and pull them up?’ ‘‘No,’ he answered, ‘because while you are pulling the weeds, you may uproot the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn.’”

(Matthew 23: 36-43 NIV): Then he left the crowd and went into the house. His disciples came to him and said, “Explain to us the parable of the weeds in the field.” He answered, “The…

Hal Lindsay off TBN

Christian author and broadcaster Hal Lindsay removed his weekly Christian television news broadcast "The International Intelligence Briefing" from the programming lineup on The Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) after network officials notified him that his shows would now be subject to pre-screening for censorship prior to broadcast approval. This unusual step was the result of TBN’s disapproval of a Lindsay broadcast in December 2005, which the network said was too inflammatory towards Muslims.

I have reviewed the transcript of Mr. Lindsay's broadcast and I find nothing in it’s content that is not backed up by God’s scripture, nor did I find anything that would be considered overly zealous or purposefully sensational with respect to potential attacks on Muslims. To the extent that TBN, one of the most widely available Christian TV networks would take this position is quite incredulous. One of the reasons for the need for ‘Christian’ TV networks is to enable the presenta…
