Take that whippersnapper!

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

Who? God.

What? created.

When? in the beginning

Where? the heavens and the earth.

Why? it is the glory of God to conceal a matter; it is the honor of kings to search it out. (from Genesis to Revelation supplies this answer)

Don’t like it? Too bad. Find your own place to live. Maybe another planet? oops, can’t do that, as God owns that also.

Don’t believe God created the earth? Too bad. Create your own brain then that has the ability to NOT think of the Creator. Oops, can’t do that, as God owns all trademarks and copyrights for the brain also.

Don’t believe God created water? Too bad. Go create something else yourself that satisfies like no other…… Didn’t think so.

Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Job’s friends, (they are all dead, and God is still God, having not lost one wink of sleep)  all shared humanity’s concern for the purpose of life, asking much harder questions long before the internet, where people come to choke on information overload without proper digestion.

Man has not learned like the cow to chew the cud as it were and think of the Creator and His obvious work.  Men have become like the sloth, using only two toes of intellect. God gave men five, that we may walk correctly, upright, and think.

Men gripe against God while He still bestows rain and food. The cow gives milk, meat, and leather, the bee gives honey, and corn grows from the fields. People look to Kelloggs while looking away from God. Too bad. Yet in this total disrespect, God proves His longsuffering and patience.

It is man, not the jackal nor the crow, who is the pinnacle of God’s creation.  Why men cannot see this,  Why men refuse to see this is further proof of the rebellious heart so clearly presented in scripture.

The word of God is not threatened by the grievances of men, the numerous denominations, unbelief, godlessness, nor the isms and schisms of islam which creates bedlam; nope, God is not the Author of confusion.

Twas quite a peaceful sight when the evening and the morning were the first day, must’ve been the most pleasant of tunes, that song of songs, that first day. But oh boy, there were some bad chords in due time when men arrived, and things went south in a hurry. Like fingernails on a blackboard or a scratchy voice. Ouch.

Perhaps if we would pay attention to the introduction of morning by the quiet sounds of nature which brings forth the honesty and genius of the master Designer. But no, we confuse a screeching crow with the coo of a dove and dismiss the sinister steps of a rat as being no different from the ordered steps of a rabbit.

And yep, God created the rat and the rabbit, but if we would only pay attention and engage the brain , and chew the cud….perhaps Frank Baum knew more than the pretended wizard whose ways were found out, and was rather embarrassed by truth.

Image result for the wizard of oz

Without God in the mix, man is but his own created wizard, with a curtain that is sheer, and is but borrowed fabric torn to shreds by this thing called truth. Man cannot face the blistering Presence of Almighty God without looking away. We look away because God is true, and we? eh, not so much. The mirror of scripture does not lie. And yet, scripture bids us to draw nigh. Nice.

    Did he create deadly bacteria and viruses too? How about a tree that couldn’t be eaten without serious consequences?
    So when the bible says that God created the heaven and the earth, where did God come from?

      Yeah mike, I have seen these types of questions by you and others before; and they reveal the incriminating reasons why you have no use for God or scripture.

      A thousand answers will never satisfy a heart in rebellion toward the Creator, which answers have already been given. Proof?

      Uh yeah, your track record of behaviour at Is53, and your opinions of some very good people.

      (You view deconversion as the highest badge of intellect, meanwhile it is simply the result of people who put God under their thumb. Quite simple, and an argument that needs not defended by me)

          ‘god’s’are a dime a dozen.

          There is Nikon, Canon, Rayon, Poly, Baal, Hollywood, Triton, Clinton, etc etc, all figments from the stout of heart.

          God however has no competitors. ‘I am that I am’ is self explanatory.

          I fully understand you are happy being free from the clutches of what you think is not true. But I will not engage your endless arguments surrounding ‘gods.’ There is no valid argument. You are merely presenting questions which have long been settled.

          If you were serious about the true and only living God of creation, you would not be asking me to give you an answer.

          Stop it mike. Please. There is no ‘god that the bible presents…………’ Stop insulting my blog.

          There is the true God. Period. He is the God of nature, scripture, arithmetic, and He is the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

          All others are imposters as your conscience clearly knows. But I’ll thank you to think on these things and pay attention to other commenters.

          Hi Mike,
          You’ve wrongly accused Christians of being lazy thinkers, wouldn’t be good seeing you display that quality.

          I’ve seen you ask numerous times as though the question is a valid one: where does God come from or who created God… which is a strange question for a non-lazy thinker to ask. Essentially, you’re asking “at what point does the being who have always existed, ceased to exist.”
          If God is an uncreated being, why do you keep asking who created God.
          Now, how is anyone going to answer such an odd question.

          Second, how do you know the God of the Bible is real and true?
          Good question [not that you care for the answer] – but for those genuinely seeking… You know God is real and true because you know Jesus is real and true.
          God did not just remain in the heavens, He came to this earth in the form of a human being. He told us who He is. John the Baptist bore witness to who Jesus is – behold the lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.
          God the Father bore witness to who Jesus is – this is My beloved Son, in whom I AM well pleased.
          Jesus’ works bore witness to who He is – if you won’t believe Me for who I say I AM, at least believe Me for the works that I do.
          on and on.

          My brother, I’m deeply sorry you were trapped in dead religion for far too many years. No need to be bitter about it. Move on. You have.
          But don’t just stop there, a cynical and bitter man. Become empowered, become better, seek the genuine article – a true and meaningful relationship with the God of the universe. When you have it, you’ll no longer need to question whether God and Jesus is real. You will know. Your life will bear the fruits of a branch that is connected to the only true and living vine.

          Peace and love.

          Ancients,
          I want to respond and perhaps have a conversation regarding my question and your answer. Unfortunately, cs is a little to adept at editing and deleting comments that conflict with his chosen message for his blog. Meh! If you wanted to comment over on mine, I think we both mght have more freedom and a less encumbered conversation. Consider this an invite. I don’t ban, edit or delete comments.
          -kia

          (CS SEZ: Apparently WP agrees that editing is a valuable tool for some customers. I have to date however, banned no one, while, as you know, I have been banned myself to the island of misfit toys by many of your big mouthed friends, as they boast of intellectual superiority. Please. As an aside, I happen to value what REMAINS as words, letters, and ideas, and vulgarity, pornography, and mindless repetition are weighed with discernment and common sense.

          And as far as you personally? Your ‘conflictions’ are readily seen, and are on full display. And you may want to ask around as to who of certain persuasions comment without nary an issue.)

          I have no problem having this discussion at your place, provided you refrain from your vulgar expletives.

          I have refused to engage you there for that very reason. You would not dare say what you did there to my face. I know this for a fact.
          That said, I’ll not hold a grudge, and will respond to you there as time permits.

    In the beginning… the beginning of what? The beginning of the heavens and the earth, clearly. The beginning of time and of space. The beginning of creation. The beginning of beginnings. Prior to creation there were no beginnings, yet God existed. He has no beginning because he created beginnings. J.

  3. Because God is God, there is no concept of time…for God is outside of time… because God is not confined by time, because time is of man, not of God….
    Because God is God, there is not comprehension of his conception, as we are created and not the Creator…and man’s ego cannot deal with things which are greater than man…
    Because God is God, and man is man—there does not have to be explanation…because He is God and we are not….

  4. This was lovely, Colorstorm! You made me think of the still and the quiet in the morning, right before the sun rises. As they say, it’s always darkest before the dawn and deadly silent and very still. That’s always puzzled me because it just isn’t like that at any other time of the day and some of us can sense it. Some of us actually rise early just to experience it. Perhaps God put it there to remind us of that first day he made, so we would pause and have a moment of silence.

      I can’t put into words the appreciation of ‘that’ time of day, just before the songbirds tell the night critters to take a hike: the day belongs to light!

      Sacred I suppose comes close, but it’s no surprise things ‘dawn’ on us eh ms bytes.

    Such a thougtful post ColorStorm and so very true! I literally wake up with the birds each morning as I am blessed to be in an area saturated with them. Their melody plays along as I slowly wake up and sometimes I can pick out the unique sounds of each individual one. It is truly a miracle in action each and every morning and makes it impossible for me to not believe in a Creator.

    Side note….your description of the Internet has to be the best I’ve ever read. You shoud license that somehow. 😉
