Evangel Bible Church of Silicon Valley
We've been in Milpitas since 2009. We are a community of sinners saved by grace and radically transformed by the good news (evangel) of Jesus Christ. We are singles, marrieds, families, etc. who seek for our children, our neighbors, our coworkers, and all others to come to know our dear Lord and Savior. Come and join us on a Sunday to hear about Jesus Christ who forgives sinners and gives them eternal life and calls them to be His disciples.
God claims authorship over land creatures and He groups them into three simple categories of the cattle (domesticated), the creepers (low to the ground) and the beasts of the earth (wild). What purpose did these creatures serve? As the rest of the Bible reveals, God had a supreme purpose to illustrate His eternal redemption in Christ with these creatures.
On day five, God brings the seas and the skies to life as He introduces something truly brand new into His world: living creatures! We see the wonders of God in His handiwork as we dive into the waters and soar through the skies. How supremely creative and ingenious is our creator God!
God is the author of the seasons, the days and the years. He gave us the heavenly bodies as time-markers in the sky. In this sermon, we also take an excursus to address the question regarding what is sometimes falsely called “the second creation account” of Gen. 2.
God’s spoken words on day three are at odds with Darwinian evolution. God directly called for the kinds to come out of the ground. What’s more? God made the world fully mature with the appearance of age! As for day four, God illuminated the earth with the sun, moon and stars. With the two great lights, He made the canonical day cycle visible on the earth.
Where does human language come from? Who populated its vocabulary? God sets the pattern for human language in the naming of the first five features of the world and then He creates man with the full capacity for language. God also creates vegetation from the ground and each after its own kind for the nourishment of His creatures.
The sky, land and seas have all been created by our creator God. What we experience every day didn’t come into existence out of billions of years of random chance, but by the logical and intelligent design of the creator God. Genesis 1 continues to amaze us with truths that the God of the Bible is the creator of the universe and the earth and all that they contain.
Paul once more points out his unworthiness to serve the Lord and His people, then he calls the gospel "the unfathomable riches of Christ” and explains God’s eternal purpose in the gospel.
Paul continues on with the concept of unity within the church by pointing to his own undeserved ministry to the Gentiles and to the revealed mystery of Gentiles being joined together with Jewish believers in the church.
Paul explains the foundation and purpose of the spiritual family of God - the church.
Through Christ, salvation grants unity among believers and access to God.
Paul reminds the Gentile believers of their former state of separation from both the people of God and from God himself.
