Tuesday, December 6, 2022 - December 6th 2022 Fulfilling Your Dream


(Joshua 1:9) "Be strong and courageous."

When it came time for Joshua to take the place of Moses, God said to him, “Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

Today that same message echo's thru the corridors of time and reverberates off of the pages of His Holy text as well.

God is saying the same to you. He wants you to “pursue the dream” He has put in your heart!

Writer, author and philosopher Alfred D. Souza wrote, “For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin—real life”.
 
“It was like I was right on the edge of it ready to grasp it”.
 
“But it seemed like I was always having to overcome some “obstacle” in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served and a debt to be paid and then life would begin".
 
"At last it finally dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.”

When you encounter obstacles, you discover things about yourself you never knew.

You discover the depth of your faith in God—and in yourself.

Every problem introduces you to a new version of yourself.

Obstacles are merely a call to “strengthen your position”, not surrender
your dream.

When you look back on your life, you’ll regret the things you didn’t do more than the ones you did.

So when your dream looks impossible, trust God and act as though it’s impossible to fail.

Why?

Because “with God all things are possible” (Mark 10:27)

That means if you’re going to climb Mount Everest, make sure to bring the flag with you.

Don’t listen to those who tell you, “It can’t be done that way.”

Or to those who say, “You’re taking too big a chance.”

Ignore what people say "can’t be done" and focus on what God says can be done.

To those of you with cancer today, don't listening to the doctors pronouncement of death; listen instead to the words that Christ said, "I have come that you might have life and that more abundantly" (John 10:10)

To those of you struggling to pay your bills, or stave off bankruptcy ,or defending your business and livelihood, remember the words of Jesus when he said "all things are possible to them that believe" (Mark 10:27)

Or listen to Paul's writings when he said "but my God shall supply all my needs according to His riches in glory" (Philippians 4:13)

Listen my friend!
 
It’s the enemy of your soul who is trying to steal your dream, steal your life, steal your hope!
 
(1st Peter 5:8) "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour".
 
Jesus say’s "come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest" (Matthew 11:28)

I am telling you today for your own sake and future.

Get your eyes off of what the world says and offers, and lift them up to the hills from whence cometh your help. (Psalm 12:1-2)

Paul said “My help”, comes from the Lord who made Heaven and earth.

He (God) says “call upon me and I will answer”, (Jeremiah 33:3)

You say “well God doesn't answer my prayers”.
 
Well have you really “called on His name” or are you just throwing “headache prayers” to the wind.

Little, "now I lay me down to sleep prayers".

What about reading, studying His word, so that it changes your “outlook” on life?
 
What about worshipping Him in church with a body of believers called His bride?  
 
What about fellowship with other believers?
 
What about focusing on Heavenly things rather than earthly things?
If you really want answers from God, if you really want your dream to become reality, then its time to stop "walking in the counsel of the ungodly and sinners and the way of the world... (Psalm 1:1)

As I close this thought this morning, take a moment and read and meditate on “Psalm chapter one”.
 
It’s only 6 verses long and yet it’s filled with advise that can change the rest of your life if you will heed it.

Then renew your commitment to God.

Then watch as the heavens begin to open and answers begin to manifest themselves as you "walk with God".
 
Remember the dream never dies, only the dreamer!

Good Day!
Monday, December 5, 2022 - December 5th 2022 Identity Lends Confidence


(1st Thessalonians 2:4) "We are not trying to please men but God."


There’s a world of difference between performing for people’s approval
and being free to minister to their needs, because you know you already have God’s approval.
 
Striving for approval is like any other drug; you can never get enough of it.

And like all junkies, you go crazy when it’s withheld.

It places you at the mercy of other people’s opinions, and as a result, you live on an emotional roller coaster.

But that’s not how God wants you to live!

Paul was free to speak the truth in love: to confront people or to be gentle with them.

When someone told Paul they didn’t like him, he didn’t lose sleep over it because his security and self-worth weren’t built on their acceptance. “We speak as men approved by God”. (1st Thessalonians 2:4)

Paul didn’t go around comparing himself with others, demonstrating his superiority by trying to be top dog or the one who was always in charge.
 
Paul new that he had been approved by God to be a steward of the gospel, meaning God had entrusted the gospel to Paul's care.
 
The word "approved" means to be “validated” through testing.
 
Paul's many trials as a herald of the gospel demonstrated his genuineness as a guardian of the gospel.
 
As someone entrusted by God to spread the gospel, Paul did not speak to please humans, but to honour God.
 
He was aware that God examines a person's motives.

In (Galatians 1:10–12) Paul writes: "For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God?
 
Or am I trying to please man?
 
If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ.
 
For I would have you know, brothers, that the gospel that was preached by me is not man's gospel.
 
For I did not receive it from any man, nor was I taught it, but I received it through a revelation of Jesus Christ."
 
Knowing he already had God’s approval set him free from such anxiety and meant he could enjoy the life God called him to.
 
The truth is, when we’re immature, we worry about what others think of us.
 
Generally because we haven't found our purpose and or our “identity” in Christ yet yet.
 
But as we become more mature, we realize that most of the time they (other people) aren’t thinking about us at all.

They’re too busy thinking about themselves—or worrying about what we think of them!

Knowing you have God’s approval gives you the strength to deal with criticism and conflict because you’re secure in your identity.

And your identity is this: you’re redeemed, called, and approved by God for His purpose and His plan.
 
I so love what Paul wrote to the Roman Believers in (Romans 8:31-39)
 
What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 
 
He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? 
 
Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? 
 
It is God who justifies. 
 
Who is he who condemns? 
 
It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. 
 
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? 
 
Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 
 
Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 
 
For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord”.

Good Day!


Sunday, December 4, 2022 - December 4th 2022 Mistaken Identity


(Isaiah 43:1) "You are mine"

We hear lots of stories about people being released from prison after serving time for a crime they didn’t commit because the were wrongly accused or identified.

Many are the cases of "mistaken identity".
 
The individual was in “the wrong place, at the wrong time” meaning physically present somewhere when something bad or problematic happened . 
 
The phrase is often used to indicate that the trouble that one 
encountered was not necessarily their fault, but rather due to unfortunate 
circumstances.
 
That’s one of the reasons the Bible tells us "Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful"(Psalm 1:1)

When I was a young man my dad would often say to me. "Stay away from trouble and trouble will stay away from you", "flirt with danger and you will get hurt"!

Proverbs tell it like this, "there is a way that seems right unto a man, but it is the way of death" (Proverbs 16:25)

However "identity" is an amazing act that is generally carried out by someone else.

We don't "identify" ourselves personally.

We are generally "identified" by others.

We are always being asked to identify ourselves thru some form of documentation such as birth certificates drivers license etc.

But the problem with documentation is that it can be forged or stolen.
 
Identifying someone means having the ability to recognize and say exactly who they are.

Satan wants you to identify with people whom say who you are, versus who God says you are.

And unless you know "who you are" in God’s eyes, Satan will hammer you with feelings of condemnation and unworthiness.

God’s grace and unconditional love for you is the only secure foundation on which to base your salvation and self-worth.
 
Today He says to you, “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine.”
 
Jesus made it a point to identify with God’s opinion only: “I know where I came from and where I am going” (John 8:14).

People said terrible things about Jesus, yet here’s what God said about Him: “The stone…the builders rejected has become the…cornerstone”
(Psalm 118:22).

Sometimes we’re so busy telling people what to do, that we neglect to tell them who they are.

Knowing who you are in Christ, gives you confidence to hold your head high.

(Colossians 2:10) tells us we are “complete” because of your relationship with Christ.

God sees you clothed in Christ’s righteousness (2nd Corinthians 5:21).
 
Once you accept that, understand that you can stop feeling like you constantly fall short, don’t belong, or measure up!

When you have money in the bank and you need to withdraw it, you don’t feel pressured because you know it’s in an account with your name on it.

Likewise, you don’t have to struggle for other people’s approval when you know you’re loved and accepted by God.

Your identity is not found or proven by what you can or can’t do or by what you have done.

It is found thru the testimony of Gods word and what He says about you.

Here is a list of biblical affirmations about our identity in Jesus Christ that is derived from a few selected passages in the New Testament.
 
This is just a portion of the many truths concerning who we have become through faith in God’s Son, but it is a powerful inventory to review from time to time.

I originally have found 42 promises of God like this that confirm my identity in Him, but here are a few to get you started.

1) I am a child of God.
But to all who have received Him--those who believe in His name--He has given the right to become God's children … (John 1:12).

2) I have been justified and redeemed.
But they are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus (Romans 3:24).

3) I will not be condemned by God.
There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:1).

4) As a child of God, I am a fellow heir with Christ.
And if children, then heirs (namely, heirs of God and also fellow heirs with Christ)--if indeed we suffer with him so we may also be glorified with him (Romans 8:17).

5) In Christ Jesus, I have wisdom, righteousness, sanctification, and redemption.
He is the reason you have a relationship with Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification and redemption (1st Corinthians 1:30).

6) I am a new creature in Christ.
So then, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; what is old has passed away--look, what is new has come (2nd Corinthians 5:17)

7) I have been made one with all who are in Christ Jesus.
There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female--for all of you are one in Christ Jesus
(Galatians 3:28)

8) I am no longer a slave, but a child and an heir.
So you are no longer a slave but a son, and if you are a son, then you are also an heir through God (Galatians 4:7)

9) I am chosen, holy, and blameless before God.
For he chose us in Christ before the foundation of the world that we may be holy and unblemished in His sight in love (Ephesians 1:4)

10) I am redeemed and forgiven by the grace of Christ.
In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace (Ephesians 1:7)

11) I am sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise.
And when you heard the word of truth (the gospel of your salvation)--when you believed in Christ--you were marked with the seal of the promised Holy Spirit (Ephesians 1:13)

12) Because of God’s mercy and love, I have been made alive with Christ.
But God, being rich in mercy, because of his great love with which he loved us, even though we were dead in transgressions, made us alive together with Christ--by grace you are saved (Ephesians 2:4-5)

13) I am a member of Christ’s body and a partaker of His promise.
The Gentiles as well as the Jews, are fellow heirs, fellow members of the body, and fellow partakers of the promise in Christ Jesus (Ephesians 3:6)
 
14) I am a citizen of heaven.
But our citizenship is in heaven--and we also await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ (Philippians 3:20)

15) I have been made complete in Christ.
You have been filled in Him, who is the head over every ruler and authority (Colossians 2:10)

16) I have been raised up with Christ.
Therefore, if you have been raised with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God (Colossians 3:1)

17) I have been chosen of God, and I am holy and beloved.
Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves
with a heart of mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience(Colossians 3:12)

18) God loves me and has chosen me.
We know, brothers and sisters loved by God, that He has chosen you
(1st Thessalonians 1:4)

The more we embrace these truths from Scripture about who we have become and whom we are in Christ, the more stable, grateful, and fully assured we will be in this world.

The more sure we will be about our true identity, not the lies that Satan spews out to us!
 
Today take heart, take joy in the fact that in the eyes of God you are His child, you’re a kings kid so act like it and live like it.
 
Don’t let risk getting caught out in the cold or around the wrong group.
 
Again let "(Psalm 1:1) be your mantra or constant adviser;
"Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.


Good Day!
Saturday, December 3, 2022 - December 3rd 2022 Covenant Relationship


(2nd Samuel 9:7) "I will surely show you kindness."

Throughout the years we've all heard of the term "covenant”, and or "blood covenant", but I wonder if we realize the importance and the intent of a "covenant", or a "blood covenant".

The word "covenant" comes from "historical" practices and teachings.

It's not used so much in our society today but has always been related to, or commonly used in legal transactions.
 
A marriage contract is also called a covenant, and covenants are used in contractual activities used in real estate transactions.

It is a term meaning, "committed to", or "bound" together.

A "covenant" is often sealed by mixing the blood of two individuals together.
 
Through out history, this was done in several ways but the most common was for each person to slice their hand with a knife and then clasp their hands together in a handshake, entwining or mixing their blood.

The term "covenant" is of Latin origin (con venire), meaning "a coming together".
 
It presupposes two or more parties who come together to make a contract, agreeing on promises, stipulations, privileges, and responsibilities.

Note the word responsibilities!

Once a covenant was entered into, it became a "binding contract" not only for both parties entering into the covenant, but for the descendants or families of those individuals as well.

History is laced with stories of people, families, and even whole
communities that entered into covenants with one another for the express purpose of protection and or unity, or peace.

In Bible days weaker countries would seek a covenant with stronger countries to protect them from attacking marauders roaming the land.

In Bible times, when a new king ascended to the throne, it was customary to banish and in most cases kill every member of the deposed king’s family.

So here’s the story of one such covenant.

Jonathan, King Saul’s son, and David, (whom King Saul hated), were close friends.

So close, that they made a covenant together, to protect one another with their lives that meant their families as well.

Jonathan had one son, whose name was called Mephibosheth.
 
As a son of royalty he had status however Mephibosheth became a cripple as a baby when his nurse dropped him while fleeing the palace after Saul and Jonathans death on the battlefield.
 
Some theologians say that he became a paraplegic; he couldn't walk and he was pretty much dependent upon others to get around and take care of him.
 
Now he was nothing more than a crippled beggar in hiding fearing for his life.
 
The bible tells us that Mephibosheth was living in Lo Debar, which means “the land of nothing…the place of no bread” (2nd Samuel 9:4-5).

That’s significant, because when your self-esteem is nonexistent, your surroundings usually reflect it.

Mephibosheth was living in "survival mode", living in fear of being found by the new king.
 
No hope, no means, and no future.

However when David took the throne as King of Israel, David sought out and brought Mephibosheth to the palace saying, “I will surely show you kindness for the sake of your father Jonathan. And I will "restore to you", and all the land that belonged to your grandfather Saul, and you will always eat at my table.”

When we reach that place in life where it has all "fallen apart".

When we reach that place in life where we have lost our self esteem, and our reason for living; you need to understand this one thing.

Your acceptance with God isn’t based on who you are, but “Whose", you are!
 
The Bible says, “God, for Christ’s sake has forgiven you” (Ephesians 4:32).

Mephibosheth was lame in both feet and couldn’t walk properly.
 
And spiritually speaking, you couldn’t either!
 
Yet Mephibosheth “ate at the king’s table, even though he was crippled in both feet” (2nd Samuel 9:13).

He was of no use or benefit to the king.
 
In essence he had nothing to offer the king, his only purpose was to try to exist.

But that’s not what King David saw.
 
What He saw was the covenant that He made with Jonathan every time he looked at Mephibosheth.
 
His lame feet couldn’t be seen because they were hidden under the king’s table.

And here is the analogy.

God does the same for you too

He wraps you, "in the righteousness of Christ" and puts all your sins under the table, under the blood.
 
He only sees you and I, "under the blood" of Christ.
 
Because of the new covenant that Christ established at the cross.
 
That means you’re always acceptable in His sight—including this very moment.
 
And as He looks at you, as He looks at me, He remembers His promise to us.

He remembers the "New Covenant", He made at Christ's death burial and resurrection.
 
"Psalm 89:34) "No, I will not break my covenant; I will not take back one word of what I said."
 
(2 Corinthians 1:20) "For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen,

The word "promise", itself occurs over 50 times in the Bible.

Jesus said. "I am come that you might have life and that more abundantly". (John 10:10)

Today you have a position, a seat of royalty because of the "Covenant of God" secured by the shed blood of Christ.

So today take your place of royalty and begin to stand against the kingdom of darkness and stand for the kingdom of God, after all, you are a "Kings kid".

Good Day!


Friday, December 2, 2022 - December 2nd 2022 Forgiveness


(Proverbs 24:17) "Don't rejoice when your enemies fall."

It's true that as we live out each day in life, you’ll make foes as well as friends.
 
It just can’t be avoided; it comes with the territory.
 
The issue isn’t will you make enemies, the issue is how will you treat them?

Our friends bring out the best in us, and oh how our foes bring out the worst in us!

But "if" you are a follower of Christ, there are three things you can’t do:

Those three things are:
 
#1) "you cannot resent",
 
#2) "you cannot retaliate",
 
#3 "you cannot rejoice", when your enemy seems to get their comeuppance or due.

The Bible says in (Proverbs 24:17-20) “Don’t rejoice when your enemies fall; don’t be happy when they stumble.
 
For the Lord will be displeased with you and will turn his anger away from them.
 
Don’t fret because of evildoers; don’t envy the wicked.
 
For evil people have no future; the light of the wicked will be snuffed out”

Don’t allow bitterness and resentment to destroy you.

It’s better to take your medicine now than to agonize later.

Never wish ill on your enemy—leave revenge to God.

Revenge is God’s business, not ours.
 
"You" know what the person did to you, but “God alone” knows why they did it.

From (Romans 12:17-19) Paul put the matter succinctly yet firmly when he said, “Never pay back evil with more evil.
 
Do things in such a way that everyone can see you are honorable.
 
Do all that you can to live in peace with everyone.

Dear friends, never take revenge.
 
Leave that to God.
 
For the Scriptures say, ‘I will take revenge; I will pay them back’, "says the Lord” (Deuteronomy 32:35)

Never forget, that you are not perfect either.
 
You have probably offended and hurt someone along life's pathway as well.

And whether it was purposefully or indiscriminately, the fact of the matter is that you and I are guilty of the same kind of infractions against our fellow man, friend or foe.
 
There is an old cliche that says "do unto others as you would have them do to you.

The scriptures put it this way, (Matthew 6:14) "For if you forgive others their trespasses, your Heavenly Father will also forgive you ... forgive it, so that your Father in heaven will forgive your trespasses as well."

(Mark 11:26) "But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in Heaven forgive your trespasses."

Bottom line is your not perfect either.

Has someone hurt you; then forgive them!
 
Stop reasoning why, and start doing!
 
Stop making excuses for yourself and justifying your actions.

They are doing the same thing.
 
Instead, set the example, be a bigger person, humble your self before the hand of God.

Let it go!

When you do that, you release power in the universe for the wrong to be made right.

When you do that, you begin to move the Hand of God, on your behalf.
 
Good Day!
Thursday, December 1, 2022 - December 1st 2022 The Laws Of Thermodynamics


(Isaiah 51:6) "The earth will grow old like a garment."

The more scientists learn about life on earth, the more they discover "the truth" of what the Bible has clearly taught for centuries.

Back in the 1700' some really smart men in our history came up with the law of "thermodynamics".

Historically, "thermodynamics" was developed out of a desire to increase the efficiency of early steam engines.

Simply put "the law of thermodynamics" says that while energy can be changed from one form to another, (as in steam turning into pressure to produce power), "energy" can not be created or destroyed.

Scientists once held to a theory called “steady state” or “continuous creation”, a theory stating that the universe (or energy) was constantly being created.

But the first law of thermodynamics states the opposite: there is no “ongoing” creation today.

The Bible says, “Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them” (Genesis 2:1).

The word "finished", used in this text, is translated in the original Hebrew as an action that was completed in the past, never to occur again.

Now the interesting thing about "thermodynamics is that it has a second law of which says "in all physical processes, every ordered system over time tends to become more disordered".

In other words, everything is running down and wearing out as energy is becoming less and less available for use.

Along with the second law of thermodynamics is the truth that nothing physical in life continues to "evolve", it only "devolves".

"Flesh and blood", "old age", is proof enough of that.

The Psalmist wrote, “You laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of Your hands. They will perish, but You will endure…they will all grow old like a garment…But You are the same, and Your years have no end” (Psalm 102:25-27).

The more scientists learn about life on earth, the more they discover the truth of what the Bible has clearly taught for centuries.

No matter how sincere you may be or how hard you try, in order to open a locked door you must use the right key.
 
As many scientists are starting to find out, the Bible is an amazing key that not only proves the existence of a higher power and an intelligent designer, but it also unlocks the door to understanding all of life.

So if really smart men are starting to see this why do you still argue it?
 
Jesus said to Peter, "Why did you doubt" (Matthew 14:31) How is it we can see the truth but refuse to believe?
 
There is an old cliche that says, "there is none so blind as he who will not see".
 
Even ungodly philosophers understand that it’s a matter of your individual will, to believe see or accept truth.

What is it going to take to get you to finally understand, finally believe, that their is a God, a Creator that has only "good in mind" for His creation.

Only good in mind, for you!
 
(Jeremiah 29:11) “For I know the plans I have for you says the Lord: plans to prosper you and give you a future, not plans for evil”.

Good Day!


Wednesday, November 30, 2022 - November 30th 2022 More proof!


(Job 40:15) "Look now at behemoth, which I made."

Here are two more “scientific facts” that prove the Bible true and trustworthy.

Are you aware that the Bible talks about dinosaurs?
 
The topic of dinosaurs in the Bible is part of a larger ongoing debate within the Christian community over “the age” of the earth, the proper interpretation of Genesis, and how to interpret the physical evidences that science is uncovering all around us. 
 
Those who believe in "an older age" for the earth tend to argue that the Bible does not mention dinosaurs, because, according to their paradigm, dinosaurs died out millions of years before the first man ever walked the earth.
 
However the book of Job is a book that contains insight, council, wisdom and a knowledge of God that has been overlooked by educators for a long, long time.
 
Those who believe in a "younger age for the earth", argue that the Bible does indeed mention dinosaurs, though it never actually uses the word “dinosaur.”
 
Instead, it uses the Hebrew word “tanniyn”, which is translated a few different ways in our English Bibles.
 
Sometimes it’s referred to as a “sea monster,” and sometimes it’s “serpent.”
 
It is most commonly translated “dragon.”
 
The "tanniyn" appear to have been some sort of giant reptile.
 
These creatures are mentioned nearly thirty times in the Old Testament and were found both on land and in the water.
 
In addition to mentioning these giant reptiles, the Bible describes a couple of creatures in such a way that some scholars believe the writers may have been describing dinosaurs.
 
The behemoth as mentioned in scripture is said to be the mightiest of all God’s creatures, a giant whose tail is likened to a cedar tree (Job 40:15).
 
Some scholars have tried to identify the behemoth as either an elephant or a hippopotamus.
 
Others point out however that elephants and hippopotamuses have very thin tails, nothing comparable to a cedar tree.
 
Dinosaurs like the “brachiosaurus” and the “diplodocus”, on the other hand, had huge tails which could easily be compared to a cedar tree.
 
But here is a statement that God makes in a conversation with Job the great "Patriarch of faith" that I find very revealing about the “authenticity" of the Bible.
 
God said to Job; “Look now at the behemoth, which I made…his strength is in his hips, and his power is in his stomach muscles.
 
He moves his tail like a cedar…His bones are like beams of bronze, his ribs like bars of iron.

He is the first of the ways of God; only He who made him can bring near His sword” (Job 40:15-19).

Pay particular attention to the last two phrases:
 
(a) “He is the first of the ways  of God” (creation)
 
(b) “Only He who made him can bring near His sword (to destroy him).”
 
That means God not only made the dinosaurs, He also made them extinct.

Science has proven the existence and the reality of dinosaurs only within the last 100 years.

Scholars and educators have estimated the book of Job to be written between 2200 and 1800 BC (before Christ)

Not many people know or realize that the book of Job is believed to be written before the book of Genesis.
 
But again "science" has proven that fact to be true through the use of archeology and the study of linguistics and languages.

Job describes the dinosaur, very accurately more than 4000 years ago.

Here’s another thought!
 
The Bible speaks about the earth’s rotation.

For ages scientists believed in the "geocentric view" of the universe.
 
That is that the differences between night and day were caused by the sun revolving around the earth.

Today, we know that it’s “the earth’s rotation” on its axis that is responsible for the sun rising and setting.

Four thousand years ago in the book of Job, God said to Job, “Hast thou commanded the morning 
since thy days; and caused the dayspring (dawn) to know his place?…the earth…is turned as clay on a potters wheel” (Job 38:12- 4).
 
The image of a potter with clay on his wheel isn’t accidental; it’s an accurate analogy of the earth’s rotation, written in a book that is again, more than 4000 years old.

And here’s the best part: The God who created all these things with such precision and order, knows every detail of your life, and He’s looking out for you.

God gave us the Bible, His word and His testimony of His Creation and His desire for mankind.
 
Science is proving it to be true!
 
You tell me you only believe what can be, or has been proven.
 
Well science has done that and is doing that.
 
And it has proven the authenticity of the bible and given us proof of its authenticity.
 
God has given you the proof you say you need to believe, so what’s stopping you today?

God is answering every question humanity has and He is giving humanity every opportunity to 
believe, and receive His gift of deliverance and salvation before the sands of time run out, and He completes the process of delivering humanity from the grip of this worlds sin and messed up system of values.
 
Even using mans own devices called science to bring that proof to you.
 
So what are you going to do with it?
 
Continue to choose darkness and reject the truth or submit in humbleness to Him and call Him Lord and Saviour.
 
It’s your choice, but don’t wait to long, time is running out!

Good Day!
