Has the God of creation finished working, or has His work never stopped and who truly is our God of Creation? There does not seem to have been a period of history where mankind was without belief in the supernatural as governor of the universe. Our Christian way of life believes, and has the understanding that there is a supernatural power governing the universe and that supernatural power is our God, Creator of heaven and earth and all things in them.
The fact of the existence of God is proved by the order, power and complexity of creation, and through His dealings with His people throughout history. The true God is infinite and beyond the mind of man fully to fathom. A creature could never hope to become equal to its Creator or understand all the workings of His mind. Rom 11:34 says (For who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has become His counselor?" )
God always acts within His own righteous arrangements, doing all things on a legal basis. Rom 3:4 says ( Certainly not! Indeed, let God be true but every man a liar. As it is written: That You may be justified in Your works, and may overcome when You are judge.") For this reason all people can have complete confidence in Him, knowing that He always abides by the principles He establishes. He does not change and there is no "variation" with Him in the application of His principles. Mal 3:6 says ( For I am the Lord, I do not change; Therefore you are not consume, O sons of Jacob.)
God's power and knowledge extend everywhere, reaching every part of the universe. Amos 9:3 says ( Though they dig into hell, From there My hand shall take them; Though they climb up to heaven, From there I will bring them down; ) God is spirit, not flesh, though He sometimes likens His attributes of sight, power, and so forth, to human faculties. Thus, He speaks figuratively of His "arm" His "eyes" and "ears" and points out that, being the Creator of human eyes and ears, He certainly can see and hear. Ps 94:9 says ( He who planted the ear, shall He not hear? He who formed the eye, shall He not see? )
The God of creation, the Creator of the heavenly bodies, has glory and brilliance beyond the ability of fleshly sight to endure, for "no man can see God and yet live." Ex 33:20 says ( But He said, "You can not see My face; for no man shall see Me, and live.") Only the angels, spirit creatures, have vision that can behold his face in a literal sense. Matt 18:10 says ( Take heed that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that in heaven their angels always see the face of My Father who is in heaven.)
Nevertheless, he does not expose men to such an experience as to lose ones life. In loving- kindness he enables men to see his fine qualities through his Word, including the revelation of Himself by means of his Son, Christ Jesus. John 14:9 says ( Jesus said to him, "Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say, "show us the Father'?)
Our Creator has a purpose that He will work out and there is nothing that will prevent His purpose from being successful. Isa 55:11 says ( So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And I shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.) His purpose, as expressed at ( Ephesians 1:10) is to establish "an administration at the full limit of the appointed times, namely, to gather all things together again in the Christ, the things in the heavens and the things on the earth."
Having great love for us, Our Creator provides ample opportunity for us to know Him and His purposes. Heb 1:1-2 says ( God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world;) His written Word is his communication to us, enabling us to be completely equipped as his servants and ministers, and directing us on the way to life. 2 Tim 3:16-17 says ( All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete thoroughly equipped for every good work.)
Our God of creation works, He has not stopped. After the sixth day of creation God ceased from earthly creative work. Gen 2:2 says ( And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done.) But that does not mean that God's activity having to do with the invisible realm came to an end, for Jesus said: John 5:12 ("My Father has kept working until now, and I keep working.") During His rest day, God has worked in spiritual ways, as indicated by Paul's words: 2 Cor 5:17 ( Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
Before speaking of a new creation," the apostle mentioned the dissolving of "our earthly house," pointed out that anointed Christians would have 2 Cor 5:1 (a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.) Those resurrected to heavenly life have a resurrected body that differs from the fleshly body planted in death. Each one of them, already called a "new creation" in union with Christ, is resurrected as a new creation with a spirit body in the heavenly realm. (1 Cor 15:35-57)
Great blessings from our Creator under Kingdom rule are assured to obedient mankind due to God's promise: Isa 65: says (for behold, I am creating a new heavens and a new earth; and the former shall not be remembered or come to mind.) In that system of things promised and created by God "righteousness is to dwell." 2 Pet 3:13 says ( Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and new earth in which righteousness dwells.) The certainty of its establishment is emphasized by John's apocalyptic vision and his statement "I saw a new heaven and a new earth." ( Rev:21:1-5)
