THE PURPOSE OF CREATION
“Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for Thou hast created all things, and for Thy pleasure they are and were created.” Rev. 4:11
Why did He create this mess and put up with all this ignorant rebellion?
Worshiping the Creator and the Sustainer. The all consuming purpose of God in creation was to establish a Kingdom in the earth in which He could display His Glory in the Person of His Son. This display was to be made to creatures made in His image and therefore capable of apprehending, appreciating and applauding that display. Here creation has arrived at its purpose. To see Him as He is remains the longing of all that know Him as Savior. To have been redeemed and sanctified to perfection and therefore able to apprehend, appreciate and applaud His amazing perfect plan and its execution. To fall at His feet and throw crowns to Him is the revelation here given to us in John’s book of revealing.
God is everything. He exists by Himself and all creation comes out of Him. "For by Him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by Him, and for Him" (Col. 1:16). Here is the "for" Him.
