Welcome To Revelation And Creation!

Revelation And Creation began in 2003 with the aim to present a balance to some of the strange doctrines borne out by the speculative imaginations of men who embraced and asserted various conjectures regarding the creation of the world (such as, theistic evolution, gap and day-age postulating). Such men and positions have created confusion to the honest Bible student who knows that the Bible does not allow for millions of years of gradual change from the non-living to the living, from the unintelligent to the intelligent, from the simple life forms to the complex.

Purpose

Revelation and Creation continues to showcase the truth and defend the integrity of the Holy Writ. This site maintains that there is harmony in what we read in God's revelation to man and what we see in God's creation for man. We call on people to respect and appreciate the limitations of pure science with respect to what is observational and what is repeatable. Since the original creation is not observational, no man can speak with scientific resoluteness regarding what it was like. Since the creation was a singularity in time, no scientist can test it and make scientific assertions as to how it happened.

Origins

In talking about origins, no person can address such from a purely scientific approach. "Why not?" you ask. Because scientists living today were not there to observe the origin of all things. Every person who speaks on this issue speaks from "faith" in what is supported by a perceived body of evidence. This does not mean that there cannot be substantial scientific implications which are found regarding the original creation. For example, since we know that it has always been observed that life must come from life, we can harmonize Biogenesis with Genesis. The original beginning of biological existence must have had a living power preceding it. Nature calls for a Life-giver. Special revelation identifies that Life-giver as God (Gen. 1:1ff). We must analyze the evidence to see what position has the greatest amount of merit. Many such positions have little or none.

When the Bible is taken literal, we can have a better understanding of our creation. When the data discovered in nature is not corrupted or tainted by fantastic and outlandish ideas, we can also get a better understanding of our Creator. The creation, in fact, calls for a super-mind who is also a living super-power. The bewildering riddle that has challenged modern minds regarding the purpose of life, the existence of life, the presence of information, the reality of memory, and intelligence, becomes far more simplified when we discover the God of creation from inspired revelation.

Balance

Let it be known to our visitors. This website is not one-dimensional nor does she seek to become a saddle for any hobby-horse rider. But rather, Revelation And Creation strives for balance in teaching and pursues in reaching the goal which the greatest mortal preacher the world has ever known stated: "Therefore I testify to you this day that I am innocent of the blood of all men. For I have not shunned to declare to you the whole counsel of God" (Acts 20:26, 27). As information continues to be added to this site, it should impress upon every viewer what a crying shame it is for some who claim to be ministers but are rather hobby-horse riders who strain on one subject and miserably fail to preach the whole counsel of God.

 

The Whole Counsel of God!

In striving to preach the "whole counsel," you will find PowerPoint lessons, Adobe, and audio files on a wide array of subjects. Please use these for your personal study. We ask you to carefully compare anything presented on this site, (or any other website for that matter) with what is written in the word of God. For permission to use this material in presentations, please see the "About" page.

Study well!

How To Call On The Lord To Be Saved?

It is a phrase which is often stated but one that is unlikely explained. You must "call on the name of the Lord" to be saved. But what does it mean? How do we call on the name of the Lord today?

This command was also unclear to many of the Jews in the first century. The apostle Peter was preaching the gospel to thousands on the day of Pentecost wherein he quoted from the prophet Joel, "And it shall come to pass That whoever calls on the name of the LORD Shall be saved" (Acts 2:21).

After he testified against their deeds and after he gave irrefutable proof that Jesus was the Christ, the people were pierced to the heart and asked a very important question, "Men and brethren, what shall we do?" (Acts 2:37). If they knew "how to call on the name of the Lord, they would not have asked, "what shall we do?"

The Plan of Salvation

Have you obeyed the gospel? Is the gospel to be obeyed and if so, what is required? We know the gospel is to be obeyed because Paul said of our Lord’s second coming,

“in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ” (2 Thess. 1:8).
