This series of talks were presented at the Newark Fraternal in 2019

A note from the author…..
“ Genesis, the bedrock of the scriptures, the foundation stone, is examined in detail and I aim to provide clear and concise explanations to many of the questions that are asked about this opening chapter of God’s Holy Word.”
CREATION – A CLOSER LOOK AT GENESIS CH 1
Thy word IS true from the beginning. Psa. 119:160
Over 1,900 years ago, the Lord Jesus revealed one of the signs of our times by stating what will be his challenge to the nations when he calls upon them to accept to accept his position as Israel’s new King. This challenge follows on from the great destruction of Israel’s enemies on the mountains of Israel at the Battle of Armageddon. The Jews left in their land will have accepted their deliverer as their Messiah, and there unfolds a great work to bring the scattered Jews back to their homeland and to recognise their Messiah. In parallel will be the great work for the saints to bring the nations into submission to Christ’s rule. The message has been clearly set out.
And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,
Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters. Rev 14:6,7
Although we generally see the Book of Revelation as a book of symbol, this is a command to the mortal population and so must be taken literally. What a marvellously apt challenge to today’s world! So we are not surprised when we find we live in an age when these sentiments are laughed out of court. A God?! A God who is going to bring punishments?! A God who made everything?! Yet it is the gospel, the good news because it is the truth, and those who oppose these things are going to experience God’s judgments, because of their refusal to accept the truth of these words. We saw what has happened to God’s people because they – in the main – refused to acknowledge the claims of His son. So it is not altogether surprising when the prophets and the Lord Jesus in this book, speak of the severity of God’s wrath which the nations will experience, until they are driven to acknowledge the Truth of these words. When they do, then they will experience the blessings that we have now, of being able to praise the One who not only brought this wonderful world into being but daily sustains it. They will enjoy the bounties that will flow when peoples work in harmony with nature and not exploiting it. Caring for creation, not destroying it.
So when you hear yet again, “Now billions of years ago … ” and your heart sinks at this folly, just think that sadly this is what scripture tells us to expect would be the false teaching of man in these latter-days. It is one more sign that we do live at the time of the end; the time when man’s control over the earth will be superseded by the Lord Jesus’ control. Many will be the blessings for the mortal population in the Kingdom age.
So what we want to do is just to remind ourselves of that time when God did indeed make the heaven, earth, sea and waters. This is not a scientific treatise, but a reminder of just what great sense the words of Genesis ch 1make and how rational and reasonable they are as befits this Divine revelation of what God did. Man was not there to see it; Adam was only there from the latter half of the 6th day. The trees, the birds, the animals, the hills and the valleys, were already there. Nor did Adam see Eve being fashioned; he had been anaesthetized by the great creating Elohim, entrusted with this work of forming a bride for Adam. So if we choose to disregard this God-given record of what He did, then we are left to human speculation and we know how shifty that is in this field.
The constant admission of the evolutionist is that we really have no idea. What was taught a few years ago becomes rapidly old hat, as new “discoveries” overturn previous thinking. The whole field of dating is being overturned as they discover things don’t slot together on their imagined timeline. The increasingly understanding of the complexity of life makes belief in evolution as the explanation for life, staggeringly faith-based. The Wall Street Journal 25-Dec-14 ran the headline Science Increasingly Makes the Case for God. The article written by Mr Metaxas showed the incredible odds stacked against evolution.
[In 1966] the astronomer Carl Sagan announced that there were two important criteria for a planet to support life: The right kind of star, and a planet the right distance from that star. Given the roughly octillion—1 followed by 27 zeros—planets in the universe, there should have been about septillion—1 followed by 24 zeros—planets capable of supporting life.
