Uniformitarianism

Answers in Genesis expound this well too.

Young Calvinists

One theory that has gained much credence in the past number of years is called Uniformitarianism. This belief states that world as we know it today has always been that way and will always function in the ways that we think it should. Although its popularity has increased in the last number of years, along with the related theory of evolution, it existed in Biblical times:

“Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers walking after their own lusts, and saying where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation” (II 3:3,4).

This, however, is not the case. Let’s look at the weather, for instance. In the beginning, God gave the Garden of Eden a moderate climate with none of the wild fluctuations in temperature we sometimes hear about. There…

The Breath of Life

God has no need to breathe but breath represents God’s life. Without his breath, no life.

Young Calvinists

Psalm 33:6 “By the word of the Lord were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.”

Are you breathing?

Of course you are; if not, you wouldn’t be conscious for long or even alive, much less reading this article. But how often do you think about the slow, regular breaths that keep you alive every minute of every day? To become more aware, let’s try something: Take a deep breath and hold it.

Are you starting to feel like something’s missing?

Your chest is probably feeling heavy. You might feel a sense of panic twirling in your stomach, and pretty soon your brain will be screaming for air. If you don’t relent, dark edges may start to creep into the edges of your vision. Before you pass out, breathe!

It’s amazing how we can be reduced to an…

Clouds

” Dost thou know the balancings of the clouds, the wondrous works of him which is perfect in knowledge?” Job 37:16

 

According to scientists, the weight of the average cumulus cloud is 1.1 million pounds! Think about that for a moment. This means that at any given moment, there are millions of pounds of water floating above your head. That’s the equivalent of 100 elephants.

Yet that weight is so dispersed in tiny droplets that it floats!

Fire at the centre of the earth.

” As for the earth, out of it cometh bread: and under it is turned up as it were fire.” Job 28:5.

How did Job know that the inner earth was hot, very hot, long before modern science around 2000BC when he wrote this? Scientists estimate it’s 6000C which is as hot as the surface of the sun! The omniscient Spirit of God inspired him to write this and the Bible’s scientific accuracy, well before modern science, is another proof of its divine inspiration.

The Eternally Active God

The Eternally Active God

Posted: 05 Jan 2017 10:06 AM PST

God is the eternally active and living God. Never is God idle. Never is God bored. Never is God lonely or unfulfilled. Eternally within His own being, God has planned and purposed all things. We call God’s eternal plan His “counsel.” “Known unto God are all His works from the beginning of the world” (Acts 15:18). “Being predestinated according to the purpose of Him who worketh all things after the counsel of His own will” (Ephesians 1:11).

God is perfectly free. He depends on no one. Therefore, He depends on no one when He determines His eternal counsel. No one gives Him advice—nor does He seek advice—in determining what He should do. Since God’s counsel is eternal, no one was there, no creature, neither man nor angel, to give Him advice, or to give input into His counsel. God could choose to create or not to create, and having decided to create, He could create whatever pleased Him in any way it pleased Him. “But our God is in the heavens: He hath done whatsoever He hath pleased” (Psalm 115:3).

God’s counsel is unchangeable. Never does God change His mind. And nothing happens in history to force Him to change His mind. From our perspective, God might sometimes seem to change, but in reality He has purposed all things from eternity. God’s counsel includes all things—every event, every person, every activity. Nothing is outside of the scope of God’s decree. The rise and fall of nations, the birth, death (and every detail of life) of every individual, and even the fall of a sparrow are included.

The doctrine of God’s sovereign counsel is a terror to the wicked. Try as they might, they cannot overthrow the God who sits on the throne. God laughs at their puny efforts to thwart His purposes (Psalm 2:4). Evil men are but instruments in His hand to fulfill His will, whether they know it and acknowledge it or not. However, the same teaching is of great comfort to God’s children: “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose” (Romans 8:28).

Conversely God works all things to the destruction of the reprobate wicked (Psalm 73 and 69:22-15)—JK

It is a wonderful truth that all things are under God’s control and power, that all things serve God’s glory, and that all things serve the salvation of God’s people. There is no greater comfort and assurance than that!

Faith to be healed.

Acts 14:8-10 “And there sat a certain man at Lystra, impotent in his feet, being a cripple from his mother’s womb, who never had walked: The same heard Paul speak: who stedfastly beholding him, and perceiving that he had faith to be healed, Said with a loud voice, Stand upright on thy feet. And he leaped and walked.”

He had faith to be healed! Where on earth did that come from? Answer— it was given him as a supernatural gift from God. Presumably he already had faith to believe the gospel of gracious salvation through Christ but this was something extra. I Corinthians 12:9-10, “To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; To another the working of miracles;” There were three supernatural gifts exhibited here: first the man’s faith, second the ability of Paul to perceive he had that faith and thirdly Paul’s gift of healing and of working miracles.

     Do not go looking for this kind of faith today. Do not think you can drum it up from within or somehow speak healing by a presumptuous announcement. God has ordained medical science to help alleviate mankind’s suffering. God can and does heal in answer to prayer but supernatural faith to heal immediately and completely a congenital deformity is something else!

Evolution countered!

Just one major argument exposes the myth of evolution. How could ANY animal survive without it’s fully developed complexity? It couldn’t! So it could NOT have evolved by stages! How could the chameleon survive without his tongue, the Bombardier Beetle his steaming hot spray, the humming bird it’s tongue, the human fallopian tube its cilia and the newly fertilised egg its non stick cumulus coating that allows it to pass down into the womb?

But its not just “intelligent design” it points absolutely to an all-wise infinitely creative God who made all these and out of nothing! (Genesis 1).

Three trillion galaxies

untitled

Scientists guess there are three trillion galaxies 3,000,000,000,000! Our planet earth is only one tiny blue sphere circling one sun of which there are thousands in our own galaxy, the Milky Way.

Jeremiah 51:15 “He hath made the earth by his power, he hath established the world by his wisdom, and hath stretched out the heaven by his understanding”.

Who would not fear the power of God, the one and only Potentate who has the power to create all these and the right to cast men who rebel against him into hell? Repent and put your trust in his Son, Jesus Christ, the only Saviour of sinners on this sick planet!

Acts 2:38, “Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.”
