The Creator

The Heavens and the Earth

The Heavens and the Earth

Entire books could be written about the qualities of the Eternal, but here the focus is introducing His role as Creator. Who is the Creator? How did He create the Heavens, the Earth, and the life that is within them? What attributes about Him are described in the Scriptures?

Names and Titles of the Creator

Who is the Creator? In the search for truth and meaning to life, there are few questions more powerful than this. Throughout Scripture there are names, titles, and descriptive phrases about the Creator. These names and titles are not just labels but have very deep meanings that are sometimes lost in translation. Respect for the name of the Creator is part of the Ten Commandments. Yet, how these words are used, translated, or transliterated from the Hebrew and Greek alphabets into the English language is sometimes a cause of confusion.

The Act of Creating

How did the Creator make the Heavens, the Earth, and the life that is within them? Although theology and science are unable to tell us everything about the Creator and the creation process, we can still gain much insight into the act of creating by looking at the various Hebrew words used in the text and noting the uniqueness of this ability possessed only by the Creator.

“For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else.” Isaiah 45:18 KJV
