In chapter 4 of Revelation we see an awesome scene of worship. The four living creatures continue to say, “Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.” (v. 8) The twenty-four elders who are around the throne fall down before Him and worship, casting their crowns before the throne. Their worship focuses on God as Creator. “You are worthy, O Lord, To receive glory and honor and power; For You created all things, And by Your will they exist and were created.” (v. 11)
In the ‘modern’ world the idea of being created is foreign to many, especially those in the scientific community. According to modern scientific thought, you have evolved from some lifeless muck that was hit by lightning just at the right time that produced the simplest of organisms. Life appears suddenly from lifelessness. Then over billons of years this simple one cell organism (By the way it is not very simple) evolves into highly functional beings we call man and woman.
The sad story behind this is that many Christians buy into this thinking. They try to merge the evolutionary theory with the creation account. Even the evolutionist recognizes that the Bible teaches instantaneous creation and that the creation account is in direct opposition to the theory of evolution.
When God told Moses that the Sabbath was a sign between Him and Israel forever, He added, “for in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day He rested and was refreshed.” (Ex 31:17) The Psalmist wrote, “By the word of the LORD the heavens were made. And all the host of them by the breath of His mouth.” (33:6) This does not sound like God is an evolutionist!
Revelation chapter 4 establishes the fact that God is sovereign. He rules the universe because He made it. He should be worshipped for that reason alone. But evolutionary ideas have caused men to be ignorant of Him and even caused some to blatantly out right deny Him. But the book of Revelation reveals that this will soon change. God will intervene in human history in a way like He has never done before. Will you be ready to meet Him who made you?
