FOR THE WORD OF GOD IS ALIVE AND ACTIVE!
There is much discussion about the importance of "special creation" in many modern day ministries. Why not just preach Jesus and salvation and leave it at that? Why not just accept Him as our savior, payment for sin, study His teachings and be satisfies?
Yes, this possible. However, this approach will leave you with a partial understanding of Christ. You see, Jesus Christ was the creator long before He became the Savior. Col. 1:16 tells us that "by Him were all things created, that are in heaven and that are in earth". Heb. 11:2 tells us that "through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear". There was no preexisting materials, no evolution, the world was created out of nothing, except the power of the word of God which according to John 1:1-13 is Jesus Christ. John began his Gospel with an emphasis on creation. "In the beginning was the word (Jesus) and...all things were made by Him and without Him was not anything made that was made".
Dr. Henry Morris said "we must be concerned with creation if we really want to get people saved ad not just sentimentally involved with another Jesus".
Paul introduced the Greek philosophers at Athens to "God that made the world and all things there in, ---giving to all life and breath---and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation (Acts 17:24-26
Men and women must first be brought back to a recognition of their creator before they can comprehend the meaning of sin against Him and salvation by Him (Dr. Henry Morris).
Eph. 3:3-9 tells us that the mystery of salvation and fellowship in Jesus was from the beginning of the world hid in God until this time. Thus, the doctrine of salvation and fellowship in Christ must be built together.
So, to get the full picture and process of salvation, where everything started and how it will wind up (Rev.) we should always include "special creation" in our preaching and teaching.
