What is DESIGN?

 

Psalm 19:1

King James Version

19 The heavens declare the glory of God; 

and the firmament sheweth his handywork.


How would you define "design"?

Strangely, in the five years I was in college, taking up Architecture, no one defined it.

Everyone presumed we'd know it.

Thus, everyone had ideas of what it would be.

But let me tell you how the HOLY SPIRIT of GOD defined it last night, just as I was preparing for bed.

Just as we had written six articles before closing in.

Here's how SPIRIT defined DESIGN:

"The creation of something with purpose."


What a MAGNIFICENT definition!

Of course, GOD's SPIRIT always has purpose.

Everything GOD created, had purpose.

Everything was for His purpose.

Nothing was random.

Nothing was by accident.

Everything was by purpose, perfection, and precision.

Everything reflected GOD's joy, creativity, and genius.

Even the way the Bible was designed was through "mathematical" precision.

No wonder no man could really define design.

No one knew.

Only GOD knew.

The farthest I got to understanding design during the early years, was through a revolutionary book.

Of how man copied nature in design.

But more on that in another post.

But who designed everything?

Who designed what man copied?

Aha!

You get it, right?

There is only ONE MASTER.

And He is CHRIST.

Everything was created by Him, for Him.

Colossians 1:16

King James Version

16 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:
