Seeing Him Who is Invisible
October 13-14, 2023
Since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, both His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made.
– Romans 1:20
Seeing Him Who Is Invisible
Our Creator is a God Who desires to be known by mankind. Though He transcends space and time, and has no need of anything that we can bring Him, He desires to have a relationship with the people He created. And He has created the universe to reveal Himself to us, so that we can come to know Him.
The heavens are telling of the glory of God;
And the expanse is declaring the work of His hands.
– Psalm 19:1
Through studying the things God has created, we can see His glory, faithfulness, and righteousness. The design in living creatures shows His wisdom. The ordinances of the heavens manifest His constancy. In the geologic record of Earth’s history we see the outworking of His judgment for man’s sin.
Your faithfulness endures from generation to generation;
You established the earth, and it stands.
The heavens declare His righteousness.
In the oldest book of the Bible, God Himself came to Job in his suffering and doubts. And through a celebration of His creative works in the earth, the animal kingdom, and the atmosphere, God showed Himself to Job. God called Job to consider the things He had made, and through seeing those things, to see the very nature of God Himself. At the end of the book, Job declares:
I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear;
But now my eye sees You.
At the 2023 Appalachia Creation Conference, we will consider the works of God and how they reflect His awesome attributes, His eternal power and divine nature. Astronomy, geology, biology, all have a place in expanding our understanding of who God is, and what He is like.
For in contemplating His character as revealed in His creation, we can see Him Who is invisible.
Come and see the works of God.
