God Created the Earth

The more I read the Bible the more convinced I am that God is God. The more I read God's Word the more assured I am of God's power and awesome plan. In fact the Bible is the self revelation of the God of the universe who has opened the door and invites us in to meet and worship Him.

Today I would like to look at the last three words of the first verse of Genesis 1:1  "and the earth" Three words that stagger the mind. God masterfully planned and produced an amazing reflection of His Creative Glory.

Have you looked around to see God's signature all over this planet. From the depths of the oceans to the heights of our atmosphere, this planet teems with life. In the deepest seas there are volcanic vents spewing superheated water heavy with poisonous metals and acids; incredibly there is an amazing flourishing of countless exotic and unique creatures. In every biome and ecosystem life overflows this planet.

·         Trees in the rainforests overflow with endless varieties of plants, insects, and animals.

·         Artic waters and south sea reefs have a complete cycle of life where one species lives in dependence upon another up and down the food chains.

·         Sands and soils around the earth are literally crawling with countless life forms all showing design exactly for the environment in which they live

May I just point out a few amazing examples of God's Creative signature?

We can see our creator in the comparison of our AIR CONDITIONING to THE Beehive's: In order to preserve life in the brood area, the temperature of the beehive is kept at a constant 94degrees F through its ingenious construction and the activity of the bee "air conditioning engineers." This temperature is maintained even though outside it varies as much as 60 degrees. Who taught the bee air conditioning?

We can see our creator in the comparison of our MECHANICAL PUMPS to THE HUMAN HEART: What machine can compare with the human heart that pumps 100,000 times every day and has a work expectancy of over 70 years without shutdown for maintenance or repair? Who designed the heart?

We can see our creator in the comparison of our SONAR to that of THE BAT: Using the same methods submarines use to detect underwater objects, the bat has such a sensitive sonar system that it can avoid obstacles and catch flying insects on the darkest nights. Where did the bat learn sonar?

We can see our creator in the comparison of our COMPUTERS to OUR Brains: Your brain is most impressive and extremely complex. It contains many times more nerve lines than all the telephone lines of the world put together. The electrical signals from 200,000 living thermometer cells, a half-million pressure-sensing cells, and 3 or 4 million pain-sensing cells are all routed to the brain, plus the signals from the eyes, ears, nose, and taste buds.  An amazing example of miniaturization, the brain sorts, stores and acts upon these myfiad impulses. Who built this fantastic "computer"?
