Creation … Pt. 2: God’s Eternal Power

You may be asking yourself, “Well, I just don’t believe in all this God stuff and Jesus.” It takes faith. “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Romans 10:17). After reading this you no longer have an excuse. “What is faith?” you may be asking. “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1). God will give you the faith needed upon believing in His Son, whom you have never seen. Jesus said in John 20:29, “Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” Jesus is the author and finisher of our faith (Hebrews 12:2). “These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God” (1 John 5:13). The first thing you must do is believe in the name of Jesus, that He died for your sins. God then gives you a measure of faith (Romans 12:3). Then you must continue to believe to the end of your life if Jesus does not return before that appointed time.

But there is more to creation than what we can visibly see. “For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse” (Romans 1:20). What are these invisible attributes? The Creator’s eternal power and divine nature. In other words, the created universe reveals there is a Creator and a sense of right and wrong. But the Word, Jesus, strengthens that sense through faith. “By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible” (Hebrews 11:3).

You might then ask yourself, “Well I just don’t understand all this?” That’s OK. You don’t have to understand it all. That is what faith is all about, the evidence of things not seen. “Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable” (Isaiah 40:28). We know that a Man by the name of Jesus Christ existed on this earth, who claimed to be God, rose from the grave on the third day. His body was never brought forth to prove otherwise by His disciples, who turned from being cowards to dying for Him because they saw the resurrected Lord. They were true witnesses as attested in the Bible we read. “A true witness delivers souls, but a deceitful witness speaks lies” (Proverbs 14:25). The Romans crucified Him, placed Him in a borrowed tomb (Matthew 27:57-60) and then guarded it so no one could steal the body (Matthew 27:64-66). All that had to happen to stop this thing called “Christianity” from spreading to this day was to produce the dead body of Jesus and the greatest fraud in the history of the world would be over! That could not happen because he arose (Luke 24:1-7), the firstborn from the dead (Revelation 1:5). “For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen” (Romans 11:36).
