Other attributes of God manifest supremely in Christ.
Creation, providence and God’s governing the world exhibit his wisdom. “How manifold are his works in wisdom has he made them all; the earth is full of his riches,” Ps. 104:24. So in his providence, his supporting and guidance of all things; for all these things “come
forth from the LORD of hosts, who is wonderful in counsel, and excellent in working,” Isa. 28:29. His law also is for ever to be admired, for the excellency of the wisdom therein, Deut. 4: 7, 8. But yet there is that which Paul is astonished at, and wherein God will for ever be exalted, which he calls, “The depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God,” Rom. 11:33; — that is only hid in and revealed by Christ. Hence, as he is said to be “the wisdom of God,” and Christ to be “made unto us wisdom;” and a “mystery; even the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the world was; which none of the princes of this world knew,” In Eph. 3:10, it is called, “The manifold wisdom of God;” and to discover this wisdom angels only learn it by observing the building of God’s church.
The recovery of Eden, nay the surpassing glory of the new creation, that was lodged in Christ’s bosom from eternity, to recover things to such an estate as shall be exceedingly to the advantage of his glory, infinitely above what at first appeared, and for the putting of sinners into inconceivably a better condition than they were in before the entrance of sin.
“This is a great mystery,” Eph. 5:32, says the apostle; great wisdom lies herein.
Excerpt from letter by Terry Mortensen (Answers in Genesis):
“So the fossil record falsifies the theory of evolution. But it confirms the teaching of Genesis 1—that God created different kinds of plants and animals and mankind with the ability to produce enormous variety within each kind, but not the ability to change one kind of creature into a different kind (e.g., a fish into an amphibian, a reptile into a bird or mammal, a dog into a horse or cat, or an ape into a man). In fact, in the article above, Gould says that there are two characteristics of the fossil record: abrupt appearance and stasis. That is, the first time a creature appears in the lowest rock layer it is fully formed and fully recognizable. As we come up through the rock layers we see variation within each kind of creature but they remain the same kind of creature (i.e., they may have longer or shorter legs than predecessors, or longer or shorter snouts, etc., but no new and different body parts). But “abrupt appearance and stasis” is just another way of saying “creation after their kind,” as Genesis 1 teaches.
Darwin was really only destroying a straw-man when he showed that species change, because Bible-believers in his day and creation scientists today had/have good scientific evidence that a created “kind” in Genesis 1 is not the same as the modern “species” but rather is equivalent to “genus” or more often “family.” So, creationists don’t believe in the “fixity of the species”. While he showed that species change, he did not show that (much less how) all plants and animals and man are descended from a common ancestor. And no evolutionist since him has presented credible evidence (that can stand up to careful scrutiny by well-informed critics) to show that it happened, as Gish and Werner’s work above demonstrates.”
Here is the creationist theory…Creation
” Dost thou know the balancings of the clouds, the wondrous works of him which is perfect in knowledge?” Job 37:16
According to scientists, the weight of the average cumulus cloud is 1.1 million pounds! Think about that for a moment. This means that at any given moment, there are millions of pounds of water floating above your head. That’s the equivalent of 100 elephants.
Yet that weight is so dispersed in tiny droplets that it floats!
” As for the earth, out of it cometh bread: and under it is turned up as it were fire.” Job 28:5.
How did Job know that the inner earth was hot, very hot, long before modern science around 2000BC when he wrote this? Scientists estimate it’s 6000C which is as hot as the surface of the sun! The omniscient Spirit of God inspired him to write this and the Bible’s scientific accuracy, well before modern science, is another proof of its divine inspiration.
