Getting to know God together.

Let’s continue our devotions about EVOLUTION.
When we know that God is our Creator
we will then want to worship Him.
It is very important that we know that God Himself made us.
Some people think that the earth and the universe made everything, that is why they want to worship the stars, the moon, the sun and the earth itself. They might call the earth, Mother Earth! Oh dear, how silly. It is wonderful to realise that God is a Divine Person, Who knows all about us and loves us. “Mother Earth” is not alive and a Person. It is very comforting to know about the true God when we are lonely, tired and sad, and when we are tempted to give up hope.
He alone can love us so much that He can fill our hearts with peace because He is close to us. Often people who believe in evolution slip away into worshipping the earth and the universe.
And that is a sorry place to end up.

Have you heard about Ligers? Ligers are the babies of lions and tigers - so we get “LI” and “GERS” mixed to make their name. Now evolution believers tell us that all sorts of species mixed and changed into all sorts of other species. Ligers and also Mules prove this is just not so! Ligers are made by two different species [KINDS] having babies together: the lion species [KIND]  and the tiger  [KIND] species. Mules are made by the horse[KIND]  and the donkey[KIND]  having babies together. But, lambs of God, do you know something very exciting? Those Ligers’ and Mules’ off-spring never ever again have any babies! So there is no new species created that lasts. This shows us that once an animal or plant is one kind, it just doesn’t evolve into something else altogether.

Hey, what about people? People all over the world are one species [KIND] , not lots of different ones. Black skinned, yellow skinned, white and brown, we are all the same, we are humans. A black man might marry a white women, and they could have babies, but their babies will grow up and have babies again, and so will those babies do the same. This proves to us that God is not against the races marrying each other. Or else they would end up like the Ligers and Mules. But it is important that Christian believers marry other Christians believers.

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”
Genesis 1:1.
How long did it take for God to make the universe and the earth itself, without anything on it?
The Bible tells us it didn’t take a long period of time. Creation of the earth itself happened at an instant in time, so great is God’s power. He just spoke and the whole universe came into being:
“By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth. “(Psalm 33:6)
 “Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God...” (Hebrews 11:3).

How long ago did God make the universe and the earth?
The Bible does not tell us this.
What did God make the universe out of?
The Bible tells us that.
Hebrew is the language of the first Old Testament in the Bible.
Hebrew gives us a special word for “created” in Genesis 1:1.
It is the word “BARA” which means to create out of NOTHING!
God made the universe out of nothing.

TOMORROW we will answer these questions:
Did God really make everything out of nothing?
What did God make in six days?
And then He rested on the seventh day?
