See the Creation, See Creator – Part 1

It is a God given wish of all humans to create, yes, I mean each and every one of us. Why? Because it is a reflection of you; we all wish to leave a mark, part of you ends inside that creation.

There is an inner spirit in each of us, yes each of us, created by God and in His image and character. Besides the Holy Spirit, this other inner spirit is the creative “juice” that will move to do creative things. I like to call it “juice” because it (whatever “it” is) this creative essence in each of us, “flows”. You can feel it when it is moving and you know when it dries up. Haven’t you heard an artist say things like, “I don’t have it anymore” or “nothing was coming to me”? Every artist has a dry period; a period when the “juice” is not flowing. The juice hasn’t dried up forever, gone and never to be experienced again. No, the juice is still within you; it has only ceased to flow at that given time. It is best to just get up and do something else for a time. When the juice is flowing, you can do amazing things. Michelangelo’s statue of David can be carved out of a rough block of marble. Frank Lloyd Wright’s house, called “Fallingwater” in Bear Run, Pennsylvania can be designed. Leonardo Da Vinci’s 16th Century painting of the “Mona Lisa” and Shakespeare’s play “Hamlet” can all be created out of nothing, ex nihilo baby!

Every time you read a novel, a poem, a sonnet, a play, any literary work, you have revealed something of whom the writer is and about their life. You can see that Michelangelo understands human anatomy when you view his drawings, such as the portion of the Sistine Chapel ceiling called the “Creation of Man”. Most architects display “their style” to the point that a person can view a set of buildings and place the architect’s name beside each one. In the created object, there is indeed part of the creator.

God's Revelation is Always Present

When I was around 12 years old, I knew there was a God and that there was something much more great, much more powerful going on than what little I heard in church. Don’t get me wrong, I desired to hear the sermons, but I knew somehow there was so much more. I wanted to be holy! I set up an old footlocker in my closet, got a candle, a cross and a Bible. It is said that we are born with a sense of divinity; I believe it. So why do so many reject that there is a God? Romans 1:20 tells us God is revealed in His creation, so people are without excuse..they can’t say that no one told them about God.

My first book, I Am, the Great Creator GodAmazon Books, was written to help people see how great how real God is by having the eyes to see His wonderful creation in a much different way. From the first century, people have tried to alter the truth, create their own revisions (heresies), and reject outright that God exists or that God is in fact the Creator of all creation. All relationships have their source and origin in either the acceptance or rejection of the knowledge of God. But to reject something, don’t you first have to acknowledge that “the something” first must exist?

M. Eugene Boring & Fred B. Craddock wrote a wonder way to understand this issue of knowing God in “The People’s New Testament Commentary”, referencing Romans 1:20-21:

“The revelation of God in the created world could be compared to radio waves, which are always present, whether people are ‘tuned in’ or not. But the situation Paul describes is not that ‘waves’ are present but we have no ‘receiver’. Rather, our situation is that the radio waves of God’s revelation are always present; we do have a receiver, we have heard, we didn’t like what we heard and not only switched off the set but unplugged it, with no possibility of switching it back on ourselves. God’s revelation is universally present, but we cannot hear because we will not.”
