The Lord is the Good Creator
In Part 2, I wrote about seeing God’s creation. Nothing existed until God began to create. When he spoke things began to come into existence. In Romans 1:20, God said you will know him by the things he made.
We have entered into the year 5779 (Ayin Tet) on the Hebraic calendar. We are in a significant time of transition. “AYIN“ (pronounced “ah-yeen”) is the sixteenth letter of the Hebrew alphabet having the numeric value of 70. The pictograph for Ayin looks something like an eye. The meaning of Ayin or the word Ayin means “eye,” “to see,” to understand and obey (Jer. 5:21, Isa. 6:10, Matt. 13:15). I believe The Lord wants to give His people eyes to see him as Creator. He alone made the heavens and the earth and all that is in it.
The number 9 is the Hebrew alphabet “tet” which means “good.” Genesis tells us that when God created the world and everything in it, he saw it was very good. The Lord wants us to know that he is the good Creator. We are blessed when our eyes see and understand the goodness of God in the land of the living.
What better time is it to get to know the Lord in a new way. We should set our aim in life to know God. Jn. 17:3: “Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.” The Apostle Paul said in Phil. 3:10 that he wanted to know Christ above all else. To know the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of his sufferings, sharing in his death, so that he could experience the resurrection from the dead!
The knowledge of God brings joy, peace, delight and contentment more than anything the world has to offer. We are not to boast in our own wisdom, our own strength, or our riches. If we boast about anything let us boast that we have the understanding to know him, that he is the Lord, who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth. He delights these things.
This is a significant time in which the eye of the Lord is toward the righteous. In the Scriptures, God’s intimate knowledge of our lives is sometimes referred to as the “Eye of the Lord.” Adonai’s eyes are in every place, observing both good and evil (Prov. 15:3). The LORD’s eyes focus throughout the whole earth to defend the righteous (2 Chr. 16:9) and to sustain and deliver those who are hoping in His chesed (faithful mercy).
Genesis 1 has been stirring in my spirit for some time. God is a good Creator who brought order out of chaos. He creates good things and delights in them. What an opportune time to get to know him as Creator. We were created to reflect his goodness in the earth.
The Apostle Paul prayed: “that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come.“
