December 24, 2018 - One-Seventh of Our Lives

Updated: Mar 9, 2019

What teaching is so important that God demands one-seventh of our lives, every week, and without exception, to remember? The Second Coming? The state of the dead? The 2300 days? The cross?

No. God demands one-seventh of our lives in order for us to remember, every week, the six-day creation of our world, something that He demands for no other teaching. Why? Because no other teaching—the Second Coming, the state of the dead, the cross—make sense apart from the teaching that “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth,” (Genesis 1:1), the doctrine upon which all other Christian teachings rest.

After all, what does the Second Coming mean, or even the cross, in a world not created by God? These teachings all become lies, tales no better than the ancient Greek myths about the fighting and raping gods of the ancient world. In other words, all that we believe as Seventh-day Adventist Christians rests upon the doctrine of creation, which is, again, why the Lord demands one-seventh of our lives, every week, to remember it.

This teaching is so important that, instead of us going to it—to some sacred hill, or city, or religious site—it comes to us! Yes, the weekly sign of God as our Creator is so important that God brings it to us. Every week, and without exception, framed in time (something invulnerable to human machinations and malfeasance) God’s sign of the six-day creation, of our origins, washes over the world like a huge cleansing wave, reminding us of who we are, and where we came from, all in just 24 hours.
