Blinking Creation

Posted on August 20, 2014 at 7:15 PM
We cannot do anything in the blink of an eye unless we are Wally West or Barry Allen. Since we are not super-fast fictionalized characters in the comic book realm, we are bound by the laws of our natural world. You know who isn�??t? There�??s one who is not bound to the natural world because He is the One who created the very laws, well, everything really. In a blink, lives are changed; hearts are broken, mended, lost, and healed. Just think about what God can do in a blink of an eye. He could have created all in a blink, but he took a few days to do it. Do I think our world came to be in six literal actual days? Yes. How can I say that when you say science dictates otherwise? Simple. I�??m not ignoring science. I am looking at the meaning of the words. Dr. Ken Hamm wrote, �??When we look carefully at Genesis 1, in Hebrew or even in English, it is clear that God created everything in six literal (24-hour) days. First, we are told that He created the earth in darkness and then created light. Then He called the light �??day�?? and He called the darkness �??night.�?? And then He said (in the original Hebrew) �??and [there] was evening and [there] was morning, one day.�?? He repeated the same statement at the end of the second day through the sixth day. Everywhere else in the Old Testament, when the Hebrew word for �??day�?? (�?�?�?ֹ, yom) appears with �??evening�?? or �??morning�?? or is modified by a number (e.g., �??sixth day�?? or �??five days�??), it always means a 24-hour day. On Day Four God further showed that these were literal days by telling us the purpose for which He created the sun, moon, and stars�??so we could tell time: literal years, literal seasons, and literal days. Then in Exodus 20:8�??11 God commanded the Israelites to work six literal �??days�?? and rest on the seventh because He created in six �??days�??�?? (using the same Hebrew word). University of Oxford professor James Barr said in regards to the Hebrew language: �??Probably, so far as I know, there is no professor of Hebrew or Old Testament at any world-class university who does not believe that the writer(s) of Gen. 1-11 intended to convey to their readers the ideas that (a) creation took place in a series of six days which were the same as the days of 24 hours we now experience (b) the figures contained in the Genesis genealogies provided by simple addition a chronology from the beginning of the world up to later stages in the biblical story (c) Noah's flood was understood to be world-wide and extinguish all human and animal life except for those in the ark. Or, to put it negatively, the apologetic arguments which suppose the 'days' of creation to be long eras of time, the figures of years not to be chronological, and the flood to be a merely local Mesopotamian flood, are not taken seriously by any such professors, as far as I know.�?? John Ankerberg received this from a college professor in 2004, �??Many non-Christians are driven away from the God of the Bible by the young-earth claims which are, frankly, ridiculous to most people who love science. It is a shame that people who love science, who would like to know the One who created the universe, reject, out of hand the Christian God, because they see Christianity as so unscientific.�?? This is ultimately the problem. Is the Earth young? Old? Were the days literally 24 hour periods? These thoughts can be argued about until the end of time with both sides reverently holding their own beliefs. My answer or rather the thought that leaves me at peace over the dilemma is simply this: Jesus spoke of the events in Genesis as fact. He said it, it is done. That�??s the whole purpose, the whole concept of faith. The problem is people deny not only the Bible as the Word of God, but Jesus as not only the Son of God, but also the aforementioned Word of God. We cannot pick parts of scripture that fit to our lives and live like the other parts have no bearing on us. But we do usually under the guise that all faiths are equal and everybody just find their own way to El Dorado. The late Adrian Rogers preached, �??In the Bible, God is not explained. God is just simply presented and must be accepted by faith. In Hebrews 11:6, the Bible says, �??For without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he that cometh to God must believe that He is.�??�?? Pastor Rogers continued explaining how God asked Job this question in Job 38:4, �??Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth.�?? There were no scientists there. There is no way that they can explain it. How do we understand it? By faith. You say, �??Well, that takes a lot of belief.�?? Friend, it takes less belief than to believe that nothing times nobody equals everything. That�??s the way they believe! No wonder the Bible says, �??The fool hath said in his heart, �??There is no God.�??" All you need to know at this moment as you read is that the God of the Bible Jesus, fully man and God loved you so much that He died to pay the debt that we all owe because of sin. He died for you, but because of His righteousness and love, He defeated death and grave. All salvation comes through His name alone through belief in Him as Savior.

This is only of the a- websites in the world. That's a ton of good capacity that you can attend on a always foundation, which makes you draw a blank about everything else.

This is solitary of those websites that not quite have occasion for an introduction, seeing how conspicuous they are and how much appreciation they got from people until now. http://pointsvacations.com/__media__/js/netsoltrademark.php?d=wan
kplus.pro demand themselves the best tube area, and while this assured is a big claim.

A conspiracy that is both iconic and simple. You have a pasture distance on covering of which you'll identify a bunch of thumbnails scattered around. That's easy on the eyes thickheaded, but it gets the trade done, and no website needs more than that, now does it.

A forthright, yet usable video player. The participant is joined of the most approved video players in the tube world. It's has a out toy purpose, and it's awful, really.

For the time being scattering words about the overall experience. Equable though this website has no exclusive content, it calm manages to award you a capacious experience. After starters, all of the videos in here is relaxed, the virtuoso is gargantuan, and the feeling is great. I obtain no regrets when I visit this site.
