"Creation Reveals the Godhead"
“Creation Reveals the Godhead”
The point cannot be made enough.
Ex nihilo - “out of nothing”.
Read the passage again.
Pay attention to the relationship between creation and the sons/children of God.
For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of God.
For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it, in hope
that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God.
For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
Creation is bound in slavery and corruption.
This is due to man’s rebellion in the garden of Eden.
The rebellion affected creation.
Thorns and thistles came forth.
The ground was cured.
Creation was changed at the Deoxyribonucleic acid level (DNA).
It was subject to futility.
It was enslaved to corruption.
It now groans and suffers the pains of childbirth...awaiting the revealing of the sons of God.
There is hope.
There is glory to come.
Creation moans and groans awaiting the day.
Creation declares the wonder and glory of the Godhead.
For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.
- the invisible attributes of God
- the eternal power of God
- the divine nature/Godhead of God
- and reveals the Triune Nature of God
We understand about God through His creation.
Creation speaks of Him.
Everyone is without excuse.
Note how the KJV uses the term “Godhead”.
A word sadly missing from contemporary translations.
For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
Rejoice in the Lord and His creation which declares His glory.
