The heavens declare the glory of God;
And the firmament shows His handiwork.
2 Day unto day utters speech,
And night unto night reveals knowledge.
3 There is no speech nor language
Where their voice is not heard.
4 Their line has gone out through all the earth,
And their words to the end of the world.
In them He has set a tabernacle for the sun,
5 Which is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,
And rejoices like a strong man to run its race.
6 Its rising is from one end of heaven,
And its circuit to the other end;
And there is nothing hidden from its heat.
2 Tim. 3:16-17
Thus says God the Lord,
Who created the heavens and stretched them out,
Who spread forth the earth and that which comes from it,
Who gives breath to the people on it,
And spirit to those who walk on it:
Who has measured the waters in the hollow of His hand,
Measured heaven with a span
And calculated the dust of the earth in a measure?
Weighed the mountains in scales
And the hills in a balance?
For You formed my inward parts;
You covered me in my mother’s womb.
14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.
The heavens declare the glory of God;
And the firmament shows His handiwork.
Ps 8:1, 3-4
1 O Lord, our Lord,
How excellent is Your name in all the earth,
Who have set Your glory above the heavens!
3 When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,
The moon and the stars, which You have ordained,
4 What is man that You are mindful of him,
And the son of man that You visit him?

The glory of God’s creation going to be talking about you know the gloriousness of some different aspects of creation the small.Hoga Henry a lot of my passages are going to be from Genesis most of them but I chose Psalm 19 because I didn’t want to read a really long passage beginning Psalms 191 through 6 here the word of the LordThe heavens declare the glory of God in the firmament shows his handiwork day and to day utter speech and night on tonight reveals knowledge there is no speech nor language where their voice is not heard their line has gone out through all the earth and their words to the end of the world in them he has set a tabernacle for the sun which is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber and rejoices like the strong man to run its race its rising is from one end of heaven and his circuit to the other end and there is nothing hidden from its heat they got at his best things to their here and in the reading of His holy work let us pray gracious Nora we do praise you and magnify you we thank you Father for the opportunity to come into your house and by that we pray the the your spirits presence would be in this place today father not only this house but every house of worship the small that that worships you it is that acknowledges that your god in it you sent your son Jesus Christ and that your spirit is alive and well pray your blessing in your presence be upon each and every house today Father God it that we would just know that you’re with us and Father I pray that we would hear what you have force today father may it touch our hearts and May we live a life that is truly holy and to the and father that you would just guide direct us and all that we do for your glory in Jesus’ name amen. Now last Sabbath I mentioned it while we were out camping that the children when it got dark they’re out there near like wow look at the stars are so much brighter and so much more glorious out here and you know that indeed there is something special about taking time to observe God’s magnificent creation whether we are out there camping or in the woods observing the glory of the stars or whether we’re at the ocean observing the glorious waves rolling in an outer whether we are it’s a Smoky Mountains observing the beautiful grandeur of all the mountains it is something special about observing God’s creation because we know that God created it all right you know we are not to worship the creation but we are to worship the creator you know we can look at the stars and be all by them but we’re not to worship them we can look at that ocean and be all by it but we’re not to worship that we are to worship the One Who created all the beauty all these sayings you know when I look at creation even in its fallen state because we know that even creation groans for the Lord to set things right we know the creation itself has been affected because we know those pesky we and insects we have to deal with them all the time we know you know you look out the woods there’s dead trees but even then it’s fallen state it is still amazing isn’t it it is so beautiful you know when you look at all of creation how it all works in perfect harmony in and I believe that God created all you know how could someone look it at all of creation and how things work and think that that just happened by chance and that is beyond me I think it takes more faith to believe that then to believe that God created it I really do.You know there have been some professing Christians and leaders over the years that.Have Been has done the church some harm in answers to Genesis or Answers in Genesis by can ham he says that b.b. were failed and Charles Hodges great leaders of the Christian faith during 1900 they adopted the theory of evolution that theory of a billions of years with Genesis so according he says Hodges said that the church has been forced more than once to alter her interpretation of the Bible so these 2 men unlock the door for compromise is what they did by undermining biblical authority friends believers have to decide are we going to believe the Word of God as absolute authority or are we going to compromise in pick which pieces are we going to believe in which pieces we’re not going to believe then you cannot believe in the biblical account of creation and evolution at the same time they do not mesh together that does not work that way so we have to decide which are we going to believeare we going to believe God or are we going to believe the theory of some scientist I choose to believe God because 2nd time of the 316 or 17 says All Scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine for reprove for correction for instruction in righteousness that the man of God may be complete thoroughly quip for every good work I believe the Scriptures to be true if we believe the scripture to be true then we must believe the Genesis account of creation. And we should not compromise on what it says I believe what it says to be true so I’m going to just take bits and pieces of the whole creation story not going to read through all of it begin with Genesis one great at the beginning chapter one verse one and 2 in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth the earth was without form and void and darkness was on the face of the deep and the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters the Bible very simply states that God created the heavens and the earth the earth my friends did not create itself it didn’t just happen by chance there is not a chance that everything that works in perfect harmony as it does just fell in the place by some big bangI’m sure that most of you probably seen on the news it’s maybe been a couple months ago but this explosion of what country was that is fertilizer plant I don’t remember what country it was in anybody remember.Lebannon Lebanon that’s it Lebannon day when there was an explosion or a fertilizer plant it looked like in the Tomic bomb going off and I guess people had videos and it’s like the bridges flew it for miles and it landed my friends that was a big bang wasn’t it wasn’t that a big bang did it bring water and.It brought the opposite did it brought destruction things didn’t blow up inland in bring life didit brought death and destruction my friends how could someone possibly believe that there was a big bang that everything just exploded and then fell into perfect harmony Mannatech amazing faith to believe that. Because I think a bang is going to bring destruction I believe a creating God is going to create and bring life Isaiah 425 says thus says God the Lord who created the heavens and stretch them out who spread forth the earth and that which comes from it who gives breath to the people on it and spirit to those who walk on it God’s creation is so amazing whenever we consider the greatness of the universe and I have a lot of information and I won’t bore you with it a typical galaxy contains billions of individual stars now I’m not of this I don’t study astrology and get a store all that strong to me and all that stuff so I just found this information but it I think it’s so amazing so every galaxy contains billions of individual stars our galaxy alone which is the Milky Way contains 200000000000 stars and if you go out of you know if you go out at night like observing the stars you’re going to think wow you know we can find that star every night misc on the same place well they do move the stars do move around a little bit but you’ll still be able to bond those stars in the sky I’m not very good at finding the mom might find a Big Dipper in the Little Dipper and maybe the North Star but that’s about it as I said I don’t study astronomy but I’m still amazed by the gloriousness of God’s creation you know those stars they when you think about them they move but you don’t really know that they are if you’re driving down the highway it that’s known speed let’s say 70 miles an hour. So you’re driving down the highway and those little posts along the road you know they’re going through the zone by real quick but if you’re on the flat line you look out there is a mountain way out there 10 miles away just see it’s like it’s taking you a long time to get by that mountain right we’re billions of miles away from those stars that’s why you can’t tell that they actually move a little bit but they do move a little bit so amazing though that they’re still there that God holds them in place our galaxy is like a giant spiral rotate in space with arms reaching out like pinwheels our Sun is one star on the arm of that pin will but this is only our galaxy there are many other galaxies and many other shapes including spirals Cyr severe spiritual clusters I didn’t say that right and flat pancakes the average distance between our galaxy and another galaxy is about 20000000 trillion miles or closest scalability is Andromeda galaxy about 12000000 trillion miles away I can’t even fathom that in my mind but then that to help me understand the awesome this of God’s creation because I can’t even fathom 12000000 trillion milescouldn’t travel that in a lifetime right for every patch of sky the size of the moon if you could look very in deep into it you would see about a 1000000 galaxiesamazing vastness my friends and our God created it all he says and Isaiah 4813 indeed my hand has laid the foundation of the earth and my right hand has stretched out the heavens when I call them they stand up together God stretched out the heavens as they have 40 verse 12 says. Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand measured heaven with a span and calculated the dust of the earth in a measure weighed the mountains and scales in the hills in a balance that is how awesome or God is let’s move on the Genesis chapter one verses 14 through 19Then God said Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night and that them be for a sign and seasons and for days and years and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth and it was so then but then God made 2 great lights the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night he also made the stars also he made the stars also God set them in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth 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 so the evening and the morning were the 4th day my friends is not billions of years that evening in the morning were the 1st before with day God created the earth in 6 days my friends not millions or billions of years you know the sun is actually the closest star and it is about 93000000 miles away from the earthit takes the sun’s light 8.3 minutes to reach usthe moon however is only 283900 miles away you know I’ve heard teachers speaking about the sun and the earth and how they are just precisely the right distance away from one another and you know they say if it was just a wee bit closer the Earth would burn up well we bit closer would be a 1000000 miles if it was a 1000000 miles closer the Earth would be uninhabitable.If the Earth didn’t rotate one side would burn up the other side would freeze so a wee bit you know is a 1000000 mouth but when you look at 93000000 miles and millions and millions of miles from the galaxies that is just a wee bit but God knew exactly how far to place the earth from the sun that it could be inhabited by man and enjoyed by man and would have life for itGenesis 12223 then God said Let the waters abound with an abundance of living creatures and that the birds fly above the earth across the face of the firmament of the heavens so God created the great sea creatures and never leaving thing that moves with which the waters abounded according to their kind and every wing bird according to its kind and God saw that it was good and God bless them saying Be fruitful and multiply and fill the waters in the sea and the birds multiply on the earth so even in the morning were the 5th day 5th day God filled the oceans and filled the sky with creatures and I found this was an old report actually from 2015 scientists identified almost 1500 new creatures in the world’s oceansincluding a home back dolphin a giant jellyfish and they determined that most species of marine life are yet to be found.Experts published in their findings listed a total of 228450 different marine species World Wide ranging from seaweed to blue whales and they estimate between 500002 1000000 more multi-celled marine organisms are still on the moon so they know that there are still many on the wouldn’t it be amazing to be down at the ocean or the sound somewhere fishing and you bring a fish in you’re like What is it why don’t know you go to the specialist What is it but I don’t know because there’s many more out there yet to be found would be amazing to catch one of them while I was fishing one time with your brother in law Jr and we were actually fishing in the south not out in the ocean and I don’t know that I’ve been salt water fish before that maybe a time or 2 but we’re out there fishing one day all day and we just caught a vast array of things I mean from sea trout croaker to bass to and I have brought one in and like what is it and all sudden it started making this funny noise.In this blowing up I’m like What is that thing that’s is Where’d it was a blowfish. It is a start one is up up there are some amazing creatures out there in the ocean some very unique creatures out there in the ocean some of them you don’t want to be around you know and you know they they might reach for lunch but there are some amazing creatures out there birds however there are traditionally thought of to be a well studied group with more than 95 percent of the global species identified. You know it’s kind of a lot easier to study the birds isn’t it because they’re above ground they’re not thousands of feet below the surface of the water little bit easier to discover but they estimate that there are roughly between 9000 in 10000 species of birdshow awesome how awesome his creation right but there’s more there’s more to God’s wonderful creation there’s a amazing creation of mankind let’s look to Genesis one and I actually I’m going to look this up because I added a couple verses but you can still put it up there but I did out a couple beginning of verse 26Then God said Let Us make man in Our image according to our likeness let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the air and over the cattle and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth so God created man in his own image in the image of God He created him male and female he created them then God bless them and God said to them Be fruitful and multiply fill the earth and subdue it have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the air and over every living thing that moves on the earth and God said See I have given you every herb that you will see which is on the face of all the earth and every tree whose fruit you would see to you it shall be for food also to every beast of the earth to every bird of the air and to everything that creeps on the earth in which there is life I have given every herb green or perfume and it was so then God saw everything that he had made and indeed it was very good. The other say he saw that it was good said that it was good but he created man he said it was very good so that evening and the morning were the 6th day on the 6th day God created man and said it is very good my friends mankind is the pinnacle of God’s creation and I sought the information of a ph d. Dr Jerry Bergman and he shares this informationhe says that mankind has been fascinated with the form and function of the human body from the very beginning for beauty of sheer simplicity of line it is unmatched as a machine the human body is the pinnacle of God’s work and he said that it was very good you know chemically the body is unequalled for complexity each one of its 30 trillion cells is a many chemical factory which performs about 10000 chemical functions every cell has one trillion bits of data equal to every letter in $10000000.00 books each one also replaces itself every 7 years every cell and that amazing every cell replaces itself every 7 years and each one is independent yet a cooperates with millions of other cellsin this body so amazingit is so amazing even though there are over 4000000000 people alive today each body is exorbitantly expensive it says if the chemicals and the chemical elements were brought into the open market a medium size medium size human body would cost at least $6000000.00 Wasn’t there a show many years ago called The $6000000.00 Man how accurate was that right. The chemicals in the body they say would be worth $6000000.00 to work I don’t know what chemicals it is but the body’s billions of parts all work together as a team it’s $206.00 bones provide a framework and it 639 muscles unable to move with incredible speed in split 2nd timingis skills to balance is skill to balance is such that we can perform feats of aerobatics and yet have the strength that official this will human weight lifting feats aboundit even demonstrates an incredible strength by a Normal people under adverse conditions Maxwell Rogers once lived at the end of a 3600 pound car because the Jack holding the car up it collapsed and landed only son so he lifted himself the impact the human body can be incredible.For.Our body is controlled and coordinated by over 16000000000 neurons and 120 trillion connection boxes.Packed together into an unfathomable complex set of neural passagewaysthe system is much like a modern nation interconnected by billions of telephone wires all of this and a brain and spinal column that weighs over 3 pounds in comparison a b. has only $900.00 nerve cells and then only $250.00 in the large gauge 5 or nerve impulses flash along at 300 miles per hour but scientists estimated that our brains on average process over 10000 thoughts and concepts he in every day some people process even greater things and that the mind is an awesome and amazing thingthe human earhas 24000 hair cells converts vibration to electrical impulses which is capable of hearing sounds of astonishing low levels. We look at the eyewe find that the amount of radiation light energy necessary to simulate the optic nerve in the eyes so small that the mechanical energy required to lift a single piece one inch was converted the light engine energy that would be enough to provide the stimulus to occupy to activate the optic nerveto work this marvelous machine we call the human body we need energy and building materialsare 3 and one half pounds of daily food intake is chewed by our 32 teeth we have but it mixes with saliva a mouth digestions created from the glands located within the mouth it goes through or saw Vegas and digestion continues in the stomach the stomach my friends even the stomach is an amazing organ it must dissolve the food but yet not dissolve itself if you took the acid out of the stomach and put it on thisall but here it would destroy the finish want to right now in secondsif it does eat through the stomach that’s when you get all sinners you’re going to bleedso as food moves through after goes through the stomach gives 2small intestines a 20 foot to been absorbed minerals and vitamins and food into the bloodstream and then we go through the large intestines which absorbs water and other liquids you know the body is just so amazingthe heart beats over 100000 times heechul every day it moves blood through 168000000 miles around in our body we take about 23800 breaths every single day bringing in 438 cubic feet of air into a lung every single dayevery day.To convey information about temperature and other body conditions to the brain the skin alone has about 4000000 structures which are sensitive to painin addition it has about one half a 1000000 sensitive to touch and 2000 to temperature and it reports the sensations to the brainsome people say that all this just happen some people say that we evolved from apes Well my theory on that is if we evolved from apes why isn’t there something out there in between right now because it would still be evolving right God created mankind God created us the way we are God gave us these amazing brains and hearts and lungs and stomachs and all these things organs that we havesome as 1391314 say for you were formed for you for my end were parts you covered me in my mother’s womb I will praise you for I am fearfully and wonderfully made marvelous are your works and that my soul knows very well all of creation my friends declare the glory of God Psalms 1001 says The heavens declare the glory of God and the firmament shows his handiworkand Psalms 8 verse one and then verse 3 and 4 saysthe Lord our Lord How excellent is your name in all the earth who have set your glory above the heavens when I consider your heavens the work of your fingers the moon the stars which you have ordain What is man that you are mindful of him the son of man that you visit himmy friends.You think we’ve we’ve asked the question different times and Sabbath school and different studies what about those people that live in the remotest part of the earth and has not had a preacher come and preach tome my friends the heavens declare God’s glory the heavens declare his handiwork we are the pinnacle of his creation he created the earth and gave us dominion over it how awesome is that how wonderful is that but the most wonderful thing is a God created us in His image and how could I speak of all this not say that he desires to have that relationship with each and every one each and every individual that has the breath of life because God is the one that gives it who has the ability in the in the mind to make decisions has the heart to decide for him he desires that we would turn to Him then we would look to him as to creator of the heavens and the earth and it we would cry out to him most importantly to ask forgiveness of our sins and believe in Son Jesus Christ who himself became a man and well room to serve and die for our sins my friends look to the Creatorthe creation is wonderful but I plead with you look to the Creator the God made all that we see and has given us life and it wants us to have eternal life with him but we can only have that through His Son Jesus Christ so look to him today trust in Him Today a man.
