In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was barren, with no form of life; it was under a roaring ocean covered with darkness. But the Spirit of God was moving over the water. God said, "I command light to shine!" And light started shining. God looked at the light and saw that it was good. He separated light from darkness and named the light "Day" and the darkness "Night." Evening came and then morning--that was the first day.
Genesis 1: 1 - 5
Only a couple of hours after a bomb blast in New York City the mayor of New York held a news conference and was quick to declare that there is no evidence that it is terror related. He repeated the assertion several times and then made an amazing statement. After a bomb explodes and injures 29 people in New York City the major says, and I quote, “It was an intentional act.” Well, obviously, what else could it have been?
Now imagine that he had said, “The explosion was spontaneous and no one was responsible. It was a bomb, but no one created it.” That would have been a foolish and ignorant assertion!
But the world itself with all it’s complexities and the universe we see and the universe we can’t see have been declared to be an “unintentional act” of no one and not the Creation of Almighty God! Scientists study “cause and effect” in everything we see around us and then declare that there is no “cause” for life itself!
A bomb explodes and everyone knows that somebody did it. But the amazing and living world around us is declared to be a cosmic accident! What we used to say was this: “If you believe that the world came into existence by accident, then I have some swamp land in southern Florida I would like to sell you.” In other words, “You would believe any lie!”
A more personal version of the lie of Satan is this: “It really doesn’t matter if you seek to know the Lord Jesus Christ. Just live according to your own conscience and you will be fine when you die!” That is a lie that is straight from the pit of Hell! Everything for all of Eternity, as far as you are concerned hinges on whether or not you accept Jesus as the Lord of your life. If Jesus is truly your Lord then everything will be wonderful forever even if a terrorist bomb explodes under your feet!
“Lord Jesus, show me again today that You are indeed my Lord and my Savior. And may You Jesus be praised now and forever. Amen.”
