In some of my past articles and blog entries, and in numerous radio shows with Randy Maugans on The Threshing Floor, and with Vyzygoth on Think or be Eaten, I have written and spoken at length on the history of creation. Almost all these articles and shows addressed the topic of HOW all things that we can see with our eyes were created by the INVISIBLE GOD. So far I have not addressed the subject of why God created anything at all. In order to understand the WHY of creation we need to investigate why God is invisible. The following scriptures tell us that God the Father is invisible:
Colossians 1:15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:
1 Timothy 1:17 Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.
Hebrews 11:27 By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible.
The word invisible in the original Greek language is the word AORATOS and is defined as follows: aóratos; gen. aorátou, masc.-fem., neut. aóraton, adj. from the priv. a (G1), without, and horáō (G3708), to see. Invisible, that which cannot be seen with the physical eyes. The definition is pretty straightforward and means pretty much what we expect it to mean.
God = The Word (The Intelligence, The Reason, The Logic, The Language, The Sound or the intelligent energy expressed through sound whether audible to the human ear or not. ) This scripture tells us that God the Father is the Intelligence that is infinite (Psalm 147:5), and this intelligence is pure energy, it did not exist in a corporeal form and therefore it is invisible. We could conclude, without being in error, that God is a mind that did not inhabit a body in the beginning. A mind is not visible, at least corporeally, and therefore God the Father is invisible. How do we know that this intelligence that is God is energy? The answer is found in Hebrews 4:12, For the word of God is quick, and powerful,… The word ‘Quick’ in this scripture means ALIVE, and the word ‘Powerful’ means ENERGY; so we can rephrase this verse as follows: The Word of God is alive and energy or the Word of God is living energy. Since the Word is God, we can conclude that God the Father is living energy, not a corporeal being, and therefore he is invisible.
Energy can be converted into matter which is how the universe came into being, God the Father, the living energy shaped that energy into matter using his intelligence. So nothing came into existence randomly or by chance; everything material came into existence by a transforming of energy into matter, infinite energy that is not subject to time or space. This energy of course is God, and this energy is intelligent and sentient which is how intelligent creatures like man that are also subject to feeling and emotions, are sentient, like their creator came into existence.
