Who Is the Creator?

The Creator is defined as an eternal, omnipotent being who brought the heavens, earth, and life into existence as recorded in the Genesis account of the Bible. In the search for truth and meaning to life, there are few topics more important than our relationship with the Eternal. Although entire volumes of books could be written on His many attributes, the focus of these articles is on His role as Creator.

Names and Titles of the Creator

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
