Since 1994, Jeff & Heather Setzer have served churches across America conducting summer vacation Bible schools. In 1997, they began to understand how critical the foundational doctrine of creation is to an individual’s view of themselves, their family, and of society as a whole.
In addition, they conduct area conferences and special Sundays, provide creation resources, minister in music, assist in revival meetings, and serve in a variety of ways assisting families and local churches.
God used many things in His creation to reveal Himself to Job, and at the end of His greatest creation message of all time, Job said:
"I have heard of Thee by the hearing of the ear: but now mine eye seeth thee. Wherefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes." (Job 42:5, 6)
If Job “abhorred” himself and repented after hearing and seeing God’s great creation message, how much more do we need the creation message today?
"For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23)
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ…" (Romans 6:23)
Though there is “bad news” of sin and death, due to our violation of God’s design, there is good news! We can receive this free “gift of God” which is “eternal life”! How? Through faith in Christ alone!
“But God commendeth His love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8
It is a historical fact that Christ lived and died. The purpose He came was for all mankind, to die in our place because we all have violated the design of God (sin). Whether we commit wrong thoughts, words, or actions, we have sinned against the Creator. However, there is good news! Our sins can ALL be forgiven…TOTALLY forgiven, through simply believing and receiving by faith the LORD Jesus.
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the LORD shall be saved.” Romans 10:13
Yet, the context continues…
“How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in Him of Whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent?” Romans 10:14-15a
So WHO “sends” the preacher (proclaimer), so that ‘they’ can hear, believe, and call? Scripture brings the entire “structure” to the bedrock foundation of creation, by quoting from Psalm 19:
“But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world.” Romans 10:18
“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world.” Psalm 19:1-4
Hence, the God-Who-Is, Whose handiwork is the heavens, the Maker of all things, is the same One Who sends the preacher to proclaim a message that may be heard and believed, so that individuals may “call upon the name of the LORD.” Salvation begins with creation!
