The Creator in His Word

“Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created” (Revelation 4:11).

Genesis 1:1 is probably the most famous of all Bible verses that deal specifically with special creation: “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” But the testimony of God as Creator is not confined to Genesis, and throughout His word He has testified again and again that “It is He that hath made us, and not we ourselves” (Psalm 100:3). Let us look at a sampling of such verses:

“I have made the earth, and created man upon it: I, even my hands, have stretched out the heavens, and all their host have I commanded . . . For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God Himself that formed the earth and made it; He hath established it, He created it not in vain, He formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else” (Isaiah 45:12,18).

“For, lo, He that formeth the mountains, and createth the wind, and declareth unto man what is His thought, that maketh the morning darkness, and treadeth upon the high places of the earth, The LORD, The God of hosts, is His name” (Amos 4:13).

“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” (Colossians 1:16).

Though some may try to deny His divine ownership and authority, their unbelief cannot alter truth, “for shall the work say of Him that made it, He made me not?” (Isaiah 29:16). In contrast to the unbeliever, “Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God: Which made heaven, and earth, the sea, and all that therein is” (Psalm 146:5,6).
