Ok Pastors and Christian leaders read this and get it through your thick, egotistical, prideful heads: In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth! How do I know? Because God said so. And He is smarter than you. He created you and you are not His peer. You are either His bond servant, His slave, or you are serving satan. When you tell people that God is stupid, that He doesn't know what He is talking about because you know that In the beginning God didn't create the heaven and the earth, it evolved over millions and millions of years, that is exactly what you are doing and may you be cursed for it!
Guys I want you to both understand some things and do something. I want you to spit in the face of those who call your Master, your Lord, Christ Jesus a liar. In Genesis chapters one thru three, God explains to us in detail how the world was made, how long it took, that the world was perfect when He finished, how He had one lousy rule for Adam and Eve, how they spit in His face and as a result, His perfect creation suddenly had sin, death, disease, corruption, lust, lies, liars, murder, child abuse, and legends in their own minds, etc. Let us start by asking God to help us understand, and to open the eyes of those who call Him a liar or second guess Him or try to make themselves look smarter than God, by trying to convince us through fancy words and titles that they Know what God really meant to say. May He judge them and correct them before they lead any more men, women and children astray.
Lord God of Creation, help us this day to understand that You are God, that You created all things, that Your book, the Holy Bible is a record of these things and that we are to believe You and look at the world through Your book, not judge You and Your words by words and books of heresy said and printed by sinful created men and women. Jesus, please bless the efforts of Steve. If this is of you, let Rick and Sarah bring forth a life dedicated to You together, let them be fruitful and multiply, let them Give Steve and Janice and Sarah's dad and mom many good solid Christ dedicated and serving grandchildren. Lord be with, I pray Thee, Joan and Cecily, Bob and I. Help all to get on their knees and pray for their Pastors daily, asking You for wisdom and proper teaching. Lord bring all those back to You and the truth of Your word who second guess and puff themselves up by trying to make You look stupid. Lord bless Ovide, Nancy, Richard and Verna for the blessing they gave to me over the weekend, bless then ten fold I beseech Thee, and let them bless their children as well. And Lord, Nancy's health is distracting, could You please deal with it quickly so as not to allow it to be a distraction? Thank You Jesus, Amen.
Lord bless and make understandable this humble teaching of Your word, amen.
Ok, let's do it.
First, let's look at what God said concerning just how the earth was created, how, by Whom, and how long it took.
Genesis Chapter One
1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. 4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. 5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
6 And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. 7 And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so. 8 And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.
9 And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so. 10 And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.
11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. 12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good. 13 And the evening and the morning were the third day.
14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: 15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.
16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. 17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth. 18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. 19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.
20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. 21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. 22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. 23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.
24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so. 25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. 27 So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them. 28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. 29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. 30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.
31 And God saw every thing that He had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day. Genesis 1:1-31 ACP/KJV
Day one: God made the earth, no form, but earth and then He created light. Verses 1-5
Day two: God made a separation, a space, between the waters that were on the earth and the waters above the earth. Verses 6,7&8.
Day three: God spoke and the dry ground appeared and the waters were gathered into separate places separated by the dry ground, and then God created the grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind.
Day four: God made the sun, the moon, and all the stars and heavenly bodies.
Day five: God created great whales, and every living creature that is in the air and in the waters. He then blessed them and said, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.
Day six: God created first the animals that would populate the dry ground and then last of all after everything was done, God created Man.
Now read this carefully, read it just as God said it:
26. And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. 27 So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them. 28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. 29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. 30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.
31 And God saw every thing that He had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day. (Genesis 1:26-31 ACP/KJV)
Before we go any further, I want you to see the verses that confirm that God created all things in six normal, everyday, 24 hour days, not days comprised of millions and millions of years. "For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it. Exodus 20:19 ACP/KJV
Now, before we go any further I want to show you something: something from God's Holy Word. "...and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death." That is part of a description of all those who will be tossed into the lake fo fire for all eternity in Revelation 21:8. Now ask yourself this, who do you think is more likely to be called a liar by God and tossed into that eternal suffering in the lake of fire?
A. Your wife for lying about her age?
B. Your 10 year old son for lying about stealing a few cookies out of the cookie jar?
C. Your teen age daughter for lying to you about sneaking out of her room in the dead of night, getting pregnant, and having an abortion?
D. Those religious leaders, those men and women with fancy degrees and words who call God Himself a liar. Telling us that God doesn't know what He is talking about when He tells us that He made the earth and all things in and on it, and in the heavens above in six literal 24 hour days?
I know "C" looks tempting, but the answer is D!
I don't care that many of these men and women who call God a liar, who make themselves to be smarter than God, have done great and wonderful deeds and works. I don't care that they have healed the sick, and collected clothing for the victims of storms. If they call God a liar by saying that we evolved instead of that God made us, then they are calling God a liar and He addresses them in Matthew seven: Not every one that saith unto Me, "Lord, Lord", shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of My Father which is in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, "Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Thy name? and in Thy name have cast out devils? and in Thy name done many wonderful works?" And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from Me, ye that work iniquity.
In chapters two and three of Genesis we see just what caused sin and death.
2:15 And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. 16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: 17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
18 And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him. 19 And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof. 20 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him. 21 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and He (God) took one of his (Adams) ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; 22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made He a woman, and brought her unto the man.
23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. 24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. 25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed. (Genesis 2:15- 25 ACP/KJV)
In chapter two we see that God gave Adam and Eve one lousy rule to live by, they could do literally anything they wanted to do except eat of one lousy tree. One rule, just like today, one rule.
In chapter three we see what happened when Adam and Eve broke God's one rule.
Genesis chapter three
1 Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? 2 And the woman said unto the serpent, "We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: 3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, 'Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.'" 4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: 5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. 7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.
8 And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden. 9 And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou? 10 And he (Adam) said, "I heard Thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself." 11 And He said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?
12 And the man said, "The woman whom Thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat." 13 And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, "The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat."
14 And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: 15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; It (Jesus) shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise His (Jesus) heel.
16 Unto the woman He said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee. 17 And unto Adam He said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; 18 Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;
19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.
20 And Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living. 21 Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them. 22 And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of Us (Father, Son & Holy Ghost), to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever: 23 Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken. 24 So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life. (Genesis 3: ACP/KJV)
Verse 7; they disobeyed God.
Verses 8,9,&10; they tried to hide themselves and what they had done from God.
Verses 11,12,13 &14; they tried to justify what they had done by blaming God.
14,15,16,17,18 &19; God isn't buying the lies and excuses and punishes them.
Verse 21 the first physical death happens; God kills an animal, probably a sheep, to cloth Adam and Eve. This is the first instance of a physical death of anything, and it happened 6,415 years ago or less, not millions and millions of years ago.
Verses 22,23&24 the even worse death of separation of man from God takes place.
If the so called religious leaders tell us that there was death in the world before the fall of man by saying that they can tell that the earth is millions and millions of years old by the fossil record, which is a record of dead things, then they are saying that death came before sin and that is an outright lie. Shun them, spit in their faces and remove yourself and your family from their presence. For no man who calls God a liar is to be trusted or associated with.
The Lord God of Creation be with you, may you come to believe not only on Him but in Him and the words He spoke and caused to be written as well. Give your life to Jesus and stop trying to second guess Him. You are His bond servant, His property, His creation, not His buddy, not His bro, not His peer.
Jesus said: The disciple (that would be you and me who call ourselves Born Again washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christians) is not above his Master (that would be Jesus) , nor the servant (that would be you and me who call ourselves Born Again washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christians) above his Lord (that would be Jesus).
Guys, we were created to serve Jesus. Not second guess Him. Not to call Him a buffoon, a liar, a man incapable of being able to articulate what He wants to say. But when those who tell us about a gap theory, or support evolution from the pulpit or under the guise of a Christian ministry, telling us that God created the world, the heavens and all things in them and on them in anything other than 6 literal 24 hour days, that is exactly what they are doing. They are saying that Jesus can not even tell us the truth on how the earth and all life came about. They are spitting in the face of the Lord and calling Him a buffoon and worse.

It is better to be a horse fly in the stables of the Lord Jesus than the CEO of hell.
All Scripture quoted, in both sermons and daily thoughts, except when done by a guest, is from the ACP/authorized 1611 King James Version. The words in red are those quotes of God the Son, the Lord Jesus and the words in purple are those qoutes spoken directly by God the Father and the words in this sickly greenish color are of satan. But all of the Bible is spoken by God and should be viewed as God's handbook for us to run our lives by 2 Timothy 3:16.
