    Without God: All Things Move Towards Disorder and Chaos

    Without God: All Things Move Towards Disorder and Chaos

    People will thank the earth, the sky, and the things on the earth for their existence, but not thank the God who made them. Such foolishness is irreconcilable to a rationally thinking man. If a person was born on the earth and had absolutely no contact with another human being while he was advancing in years, if he had never heard a single word on creationism or evolution, this person would logically and reasonably conclude that someone made this beautiful world that he lives in. It is a fairy tale and a foolish myth to conclude that the universe exists of its own volition. There are far more objects on the earth that are less complicated than the Cosmos, and yet no sane person has ever declared that any of these things are self-created or accidentally caused.

    The complexity of the atom, the intricacies of the cell, the amazing structure of complex gas and matter which have formed the planets and stars, are immensely complicated. Applied mathematicians specialize in the computation of certain events and actions that exist by chance. It has rightly been stated that the mathematical possibility that a single cell could have come into existence by itself is beyond chance. Even with billions of years of evolutionary processes, order never comes out of disorder. Try placing a cord from your iPhone in a drawer for a few days and see what happens. Place two socks in the dryer and notice how many come out of the dryer. All things on the earth and in the universe move towards chaos by themselves. The order that governs the universe today requires a massive power and intelligence to cause and keep the universe in a state of order.

  • Prophecy of the Messiah: The Spirit Shall Rest on Him

    Prophecy of the Messiah: The Spirit Shall Rest on Him

    With this infinite might contained within Jesus as Creator, He has the ability to generate or destroy anything by simply speaking: We can only speculate what Jesus could have done in this situation, if He chose to annihilate rather than create, Pilate and the universe itself could have ceased to exist in a massive heat death. The New Testament is full of examples where Jesus could have used His might as God to destroy those in opposition to Him. Instead, He chose to use His great power to subdue His rights as God. He humbled Himself and became obedient to the Father, giving up His life to die in order to pay for the sins of all people.

    Philippians 2:7-8 but (Jesus) made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.

    It is amazing to consider that although Jesus was laying down His life for us as a servant, He was still Lord of the universe and in control over absolutely everything.

    The foal of a donkey submits to His authority (Matthew 21:7).
    The wind and the waves are calmed at His command (Mark 4:39).
    The dead return to life by His word (John 11:43).
    Death itself has no power over Him (John 11:25).
    Sickness and disease cannot overcome His authority (Luke 18:42).
    The demons fall at His feet in submission (Luke 4:35).
    The devil cannot defeat His wisdom and power (Matthew 4:10).
    All History cannot resist His sovereign will (Matthew 26:56).
    Every kingdom of this world will submit to His rulership (Matthew 19:28).

    Eventually, every knee will bow to Jesus and every tongue will confess that He is the Lord.

  • The Impossible Paradox of Young Earth Creationism

    The Impossible Paradox of Young Earth Creationism

    For many years there has been an unbridgeable gap between the fundamentalist position of Biblical creationism and the scientific theory for the origin of the universe.

    Christians have long maintained that the earth was created about 6,000 years ago, because of the dates and times given in the Bible that have led to this conclusion.

    In 1654 Archbishop James Ussher of Armagh, after having worked his way through all of the genealogies of the Bible, announced that the date of Creation described in Genesis 1:3, was Sunday October 21, 4004 B.C, at 9:00 am in the morning. Archbishop Ussher arrived at this conclusion strictly by studying the Bible.⁠1

    However, this does not mean that the date for the creation of the universe was 4004 B.C. The first verse of Genesis describes the fact that “in the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.”

    Genesis 1:1-2 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.

    The Bible does not tell us when “in the beginning” occurred. If modern Astronomy can correctly measure the age of the expanding universe by accurate means, and determine that it is 1bout 13.7 billion years old, this certainly does not conflict with Genesis chapter 1, verse 1.

  • Why Salvation is a Free Gift

    Why Salvation is a Free Gift

    Evolution is a “theory” for how life began, not a provable and tested fact. Why then do we allow the declaration that evolution is a settled fact to continue? Until evolution can be proven, other theories such as creation, and intelligent design should be studied, talked about, and taught as valid and plausible possibilities for how life began. Liberals pride themselves on being open minded. Except when it comes to matters of evolution, abortion, or accountability to a Creator. In these issues, those who think of themselves as being very wise and evolved in their free thinking, have absolutely no tolerance for any other opinion.

    When we hear celebrities such as Bill Maher make statements that evolution is an established fact, it causes us to wonder just how smart many of these public figures really are. Some famous people seem to believe that because someone with the letters “Phd.” Behind their name says that something is a fact, that it must be a fact. Of course the reason that evolution is so widely accepted is not for it’s scientific truth, or established facts, it is because it eliminates the need for God and thereby allows a person to live their life anyway that they choose, and be free from guilt for their sins.

  • Prophecies of Scientific, Mathematical, and Astronomical Knowledge

    Prophecies of Scientific, Mathematical, and Astronomical Knowledge

    Three thousand years ago, the writer of Psalm 19 described the Sun as following a “circuit”, or circular course, through the universe.

    Psalms 19:4-6 He has set a tabernacle for the sun, Which is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, 5 And rejoices like a strong man to run its race. 6 Its rising is from one end of heaven, And its circuit to the other end; And there is nothing hidden from its heat.

    Today, through the use of powerful telescopes, we no know that the sun is part of an enormous spiral galaxy called “the Milky Way”. The sun does in fact, move in a “circuit” or circular course through the universe, at speeds of more than 600,000 miles per hour. The milky way galaxy itself is flying through space at an estimated speed of over 2 million miles per hour.

    How did the Psalmist know this 3,000 years ago? Obviously, he didn’t know. The Bible claims that “Holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.

    2 Peter 1:21 for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.

    The amazing power of the Living God, is such that He is able to speak to men who have set themselves aside for the Lord, so as to be used by Him. They write under the inspiration of the Spirit of God, what He wants them to say. Why this is difficult for people to believe, is beyond me. It is logical that if there is a God that has the technology and power to create this vast and complex universe, He is certainly able to cause men to write what He wants them to write and preserve it over time.

  • Memorial Day: Places of Testing and Growth

    Memorial Day: Places of Testing and Growth

    Today we celebrate “Memorial Day”.

    It is a day that we set aside to remember those who have sacrificed their lives over the years, so that we might be free and safe here in the United States of America.

    “Memorial Day”, is to help us remember, but the Bible also wants for us to celebrate other “Memorial Days”. Days in which the Lord has shown us His mighty power, His Love, and who He is.

    Days in which we might “Remember” who our God is, and that He has the power to also deliver us.

    Exodus 12:14 So this day shall be to you a memorial; and you shall keep it as a feast to the LORD throughout your generations. You shall keep it as a feast by an everlasting ordinance

  • “In the Beginning”… You Weren’t There

    “In the Beginning”… You Weren’t There

    According to Lawrence Krauss, the author of “A Universe From Nothing”, and many other bestselling books on Physics and Cosmology, the universe began from nothing. The universe being flat, and about 13.7 billions years old, is made up of 30 percent dark matter and 70 percent dark energy. Mr. Krauss says that if we subtract everything in the universe that is visible, including all human life, the Cosmos will not change at all.

    In his opinion, this tells us that human beings are “even more insignificant than any of us ever imagined.”

    In his famous Youtube video on the universe originating from nothing, Mr. Krauss states: “We are completely irrelevant. Why such a universe would be made for us when we are so irrelevant, is beyond me…”

  • Origin of the Universe, Which One Takes More Faith?

    Origin of the Universe, Which One Takes More Faith?

    Atheists often criticize Christians in that they formerly believed that the Sun orbited the earth, prior to the 19th century. Until the recent past, Atheists believed that the universe was eternal, that it has always exited and always will exist.

    Today, scientists understand that the Universe had a finite beginning, and eventually it will have an ending.

    This leaves us with only two legitimate and logical explanations for the origin of the universe:

    Someone created the universe.
    The Universe created itself.
    Which of these two possibilities are more logical?

    Let us imagine that the universe arose out of some spontaneous uncontrolled mechanism, whereby it eventually developed, over billions of years of course, into all the life forms that we see present today.

    So, we would say: “In the beginning, there was nothing, then it exploded, and became everything that we can see, and everything that we cannot see…”

    Or, “In the beginning God created the universe…”

    Which of these takes more faith?

  • The Ultimate Evolutionary Process

    The Ultimate Evolutionary Process

    Men and women debate the theory of Evolution, verses the creation of the universe by an almighty, wise and wonderful God. The Bible ignores the subject of trying to prove the existence of God, for to do so, it claims is “Foolishness”, since the evidence of His existence is all around us in the things that He has made.
    Romans 1:20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse…

    The geologic record contains not one shred of evidence that any intermediary species in some evolutionary process, became a different species. Yet the astronomical record reveals that the conditions to which all the Galaxies in the universe were formed, were made under fluctuations in the ratio of temperature to matter that were “perfect” and “just right” for life to exist. If fluctuations in these ratios of temperature to matter were too large, the universe would consist of massive black holes. If the fluctuations were too small, there would never have been the formation of a single star. Scientists call this phenomenon the “Goldilocks Condition”. Someone created this perfect balance between matter and temperature, to make life possible, not just on the Earth, but in the entire Universe, so that the Earth would contain an environment suited for human beings, once they were created and placed here.

  • “Second Earth”, Kepler-22b Unlikely to Have Intelligent Life

    “Second Earth”, Kepler-22b Unlikely to Have Intelligent Life

    There has been much excitement in the world of Astronomy and Science recently, as a newly discovered planet named, ‘Kepler-22b’ is said to have the possibility of life. In an “inhabitable zone” around a star that is about 25 percent less luminous than our own sun, kepler-22b is 600 light years from Earth. This incredible distance of over 360 trillion miles would mean that it would take over 600 years to reach this planet from earth, if you could travel at the speed of light at 186 million miles per second.

    Although the possibility of life on any planet in the universe is exciting news, it is important to note that at the present time, this new data is highly speculative. No one has actually seen the planet through a telescope to verify it has water or life of any kind. The date used to make the present determination that this could be a planet similar to earth, is by an analysis of the heat reading of the planet that tells scientists water may be present.

    World Population Reaches 7 Billion: Signs of the Days of Noah

    World Population Reaches 7 Billion: Signs of the Days of Noah

    Statisticians report that the word has reaches 7 billion souls. With the massive increase in world population one wonders at the prophetic implications of such a monumental pinnacle. The last time the world population reached 7 billion, it was during the days of Noah. According to Mathematicians, the population of the earth after Adam, grew exponentially due to the life span of man being over 900 years. Using an algebraic calculation, the number of human beings at the time of Noah and the flood, could easily have been 7 billion people.

    Jesus said that “As the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be”.

    Matthew 24:37 But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.

    The following is an illustration of how quickly the earth’s population could grow to 7 billion from, Adam to Noah:

  • The Law of Human Nature

    The Law of Human Nature

    Have you considered the fact that inside of you there exists a law that you have no control over, that tells you something is right or wrong? We commonly refer to this law as “our conscience”. People who do not have a consciousness that something is wrong are called “Sociopaths”. This is the ability to do absolutely anything, no matter how heinous, and yet feel not guilt or remorse for the act. A person becomes a sociopath by repeatedly doing things that they know are wrong, until they can not longer feel any guilt for having done them.

    The real question here is: “Why is this Moral Law present in us?”

    After all, none of us is perfect and we should not expect anyone else to be perfect. Yet, when someone acts in a certain way, or does a particular thing that displeases us, we might say “that is wrong”. Why do we evaluate the behavior of someone over and above the actual act itself and determine if it is right or wrong?

    There are two principles at work every day in all our lives: One, the fact that people should behave a certain way in a civilized society. Two, The way in which they actually do act.

  • Evidence of the Rapture from the First Century

    Evidence of the Rapture from the First Century

    A recent archaeological discovery dated from the first century, confirms that those in the early church believed in the resurrection of Jesus Christ as well as their own future resurrection from the dead, if they would trust Christ.

    Officially labeled as NCE 156 and written in the Greek language on stone, the text of the inscription reveals the Biblical belief in a “Bridal Chamber” awaiting those who die in Christ. The promise given by Jesus at our death, or that we should be alive when He comes for His church, is that we will be His Bride.

    John 3:29 He who has the bride is the bridegroom; but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice. Therefore this joy of mine is fulfilled.

    1 Thessalonians 5:9-10 For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ,who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him.

    The idea of a Bridal chamber came from an old testament verse that describes a time of indignation or wrath occurring on the earth, while those who trust in the Savior as His Bride, will be hidden in that chamber until the indignation has passed.

    Isaiah 26:19-21 Your dead shall live; Together with my dead body they shall arise. Awake and sing, you who dwell in dust; For your dew is like the dew of herbs, And the earth shall cast out the dead. Come, my people, enter your chambers, And shut your doors behind you; Hide yourself, as it were, for a little moment, Until the indignation is past. For behold, the LORD comes out of His place To punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity; The earth will also disclose her blood, And will no more cover her slain.

  • The Bible Gives No Evidence For Life on Other Planets

    The Bible Gives No Evidence For Life on Other Planets

    Researchers today revealed that the “Goldilocks” planet called Gliese (GLEE-zuh) 581g that was said to be orbiting a nearby star, may not exist after all.

    When the announcement was made that an “Exoplanet” that could be very similar to the earth and may in fact contain life, it drew widespread attention all over the world. For years Atheists and non believers have claimed that it is rather prideful of Christians to insist that human being are the only life form found in the universe. The truth is that the Bible reveals that the sole purpose of the Universe was to “Display the Glory of God”.

    Psalms 19:1 “The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork. Day unto day utters speech, And night unto night reveals knowledge. There is no speech nor language Where their voice is not heard.”

    It appears that the glory and power of the Lord is so great that He felt it necessary to make a public display of that glory so that the doubts and minds of all creation on earth would be settled as to whether or not He exists. That attempt seems to have failed since there remains a vast contingency of those who claim that there is no evidence for the existence of God.

    Isn’t it amazing that Creation itself is not sufficient to stop the mouths of all scoffers for the existence of God? If a truck fell out of the sky and landed in front of these, one would imagine that they would proclaim that the event did not occur and is a figment of the imagination. When Paul wrote the Book of Romans under the direction of the Holy Spirit, he sought to forever shut the mouths of all human excuses for why they do not believe in the one true Living God.

    Romans 1:18-25 “… men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things…. who exchanged the truth of God for the lie..”.

    The fact is that when God created each one of us, he “Hardwired” internally a knowledge of Himself inside of us. Much as a computer designer hard wires a BIOS into a computer that allows it to know what it is and what it’s purpose is. God made us with a knowledge of Him. This is why on the day of judgement when men proclaim that they did not know that God exists, He will show them that place inside themselves where He placed this knowledge.

  • Evolutionist: Appearance of Intelligent Design an ‘Illusion’

    Evolutionist: Appearance of Intelligent Design an ‘Illusion’

    Ever since scientists discovered the appearance of intelligent design in the cell structure of all living things, most biologists have stated that this “appearance of design is simply an illusion”.

    Although the structure and functioning of the cell appears to be designed by an intelligence, biologists insist that the cell evolved and was not actually designed.

    From the first discovery of DNA by Watson and Crick, scientists have been aware that DNA stores information within itself that contains a four character chemical alphabet. This is the crucial information that a cell requires to transmit, build and assemble the protein molecules that every living cell needs to survive.

    This information within the DNA of the cell is a written language that is very similar to the written language of a computer code that directs the function of every computer system. Depending on the arrangement of this chemical alphabet, the DNA molecules relay this information to the cell for building proteins that make life possible.

    Atheists and humanists Richard Dawkins has stated that “The machine code of the genes is uncanny computer-like.” The amazing fact is that this computer code of the cell is so sophisticated that it is even more advanced than the human written computer code found in every software program that exists. The founder of Microsoft Bill Gates, has stated that “DNA is like a computer program but far, far more advanced than any software ever created.”

  • Don’t Just Do Something, Stand There

    Don’t Just Do Something, Stand There

    If you are like me, one of the most difficult things to accomplish as a follower of Jesus, is to do nothing. We live in a world where we must have constant perpetual motion or we will get run over by the guy working hard right behind us.

    There are several instances in the Bible where the Lord has told His people to do nothing. Just wait, and watch.

    When Israel had recently been delivered by the Lord from their terrible 400 years of slavery in Egypt, God took them on a long and difficult journey through the desert. Every day that God’s people awoke they found that every provision and blessing they could possibly need in their life, was already provided for them by the Lord.

    While on this journey, the Lord provided what they needed, by supernatural means. The Bible records that even the clothes and shoes that they wore did not wear out in all of their forty year journey.

    Atheists Holiday Message: ‘Become a Fool Like us’

    Atheists Holiday Message: ‘Become a Fool Like us’

    We know that the Universe is not eternal. It had a “first cause”, and it is slowly winding down over the process of time. Since the Universe is not eternal and clearly began from nothing, who wound up what is now winding down?

    The Sun has not been in our solar system forever, and the Universe has not been here forever. If the Universe had been here forever, Then the Sun in our solar system would have burned out already, in fact all of the stars in the Universe would have already burned out.

    The second law of thermodynamics, the law of Entropy states that everything in the Universe is wearing out, winding down, running out of energy. Over time, energy becomes less and less usable. This means that the Universe had to have a Beginning.

    It took the scientist quite a long time to admit this fact, but the most credible scientists today admit that the Universe must have had a beginning.

    The Heavens Declare the Glory of God

    The Heavens Declare the Glory of God

    For those who missed the Perseids in August, another chance for a nighttime meteor-gazing is on its way. The annual Leonid shower is coming up in the middle of the month, offering any of those disappointed by cloud-cover the nights of the Perseids a (bad pun alert) “constellation prize.”

    The Leonids are thus named because these meteors appear to radiate from the part of the sky where the constellation Leo can be seen. In 2001, the Leonids put on a fantastic show that dazzled those who were up early enough (or late enough) to watch this powerful shower of “falling stars.” Sky-gazers watched a steady stream of meteors that sizzled across the black morning sky every few seconds.

    In early November of 1833, the meteors showered across the sky by the tens of thousands. The spectacular Leonid shower of that year caused people to believe the Apocalypse was on its way, and many looked forward to the Second Coming as flaming projectiles blazed through the darkness.
