” 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!
” 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.
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!
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).
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.”
