Man and Dinosaurs

The Bible says that man and all the creatures lived at the same time. Evolutionists claim that dinosaurs were extinct 60 million years before man walked the earth. Any proof that man lived along with dinosaurs, simply destroys the theory of evolution. This is something that evolutionist simply will not accept. Any evidence proving that man and dinosaurs lived concurrently is met with resistance and is quickly explained away, sometimes with rather bizarre explanations. However, the proof still exists that dinosaurs were here for some time after the flood.

The Creation Evidence Museum of Texas has a set of Cretaceous footprints discovered by archaeologist Alvis Delk. This fossil of Glen Rose limestone consists of a dinosaur footprint (Acrocanthosaurus) on top of an eleven-inch human footprint. The human footprint matches several other fossil footprints in the area. Extensive laboratory testing verified the authenticity of both tracks.  Continue reading

The Accuracy of the Bible

Bible image

Those that claim the Bible is just a book of man-made myths and stories have never put it to the test. 28% Over of the Bible is made up of prophecy. Over 2000 of these prophecies have been fulfilled, many down to very specific details. Who but God knows the future.

The Bible contains wisdom and advanced knowledge about nature, prophecy, medical, sanitation, and science. A knowledge that was literally thousands of years ahead of its time, proving that the scriptures were God inspired.

Archaeology has continued to prove the Bible true. Historical scholars claimed there was no proof that King Herod, Pontius Pilate, Nebuchadnezzar, Belshazzar,  Hezekiah, Darius, and King David ever existed. But archaeological discoveries in recent years have proved they and many more biblical characters did exist. Archaeology has never proved the Bible false, rather it has substantiated the scriptures.  Archaeologists continue to find cities and places mentioned in the Bible, such as in 2004 when they discovered the Siloam Pool where Jesus healed the blind man. And in September of 2015, the biblical city of Sodom was discovered. Excavations show that the city came to a sudden fiery end, just as portrayed in the Bible. In fact, all archaeology finds have agreed with the historical biblical accounts as recorded in the Bible. There has not been a single artifact or discovery made that would disprove what is written in The Word of God.
     Dr. Nelson Glueck, the great Palestinian archaeologist, and President of the Hebrew Union College stated:
    “As a matter of fact, it may be stated categorically that no archaeological discovery has ever controverted a Biblical reference. Scores of archaeological findings have been made which confirm in clear outline or exact detail historical statements in the Bible.”

I challenge those that don’t believe the Bible to read it and test the scriptures. Don’t just believe what others have told you. Don’t be afraid of finding out the truth. God is real. The Bible is His word. The day will come when everyone will be faced with the truth. Be Ready!

Knowing the truth is not a burden. It will set you free to live the joy-filled life, Christ wants for you.

Jesus: The Living God

Buddha, Confucius, Muhammad are dead. You can visit their graves. Most have monuments at their gravesites. They are still buried jesusin the ground. You can visit the grave of Jesus Christ, but there is no monument because he is not there. The grave is empty! Jesus is alive! He is with the Father in heaven, as our intercessor to the Father.

Only Jesus rose from the grave and is alive today. Over 500 people saw Jesus after his resurrection. They witnessed the fact that he was alive and well after his crucifixion, death, and burial.

Not only does the Bible attest to the fact that Jesus rose from the grave, but there were secular writers at the time that acknowledged his resurrection.

Only Jesus loved us enough to die for our sins. Only Jesus said, “I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.” (John 14:3)

Are you putting your faith and hope in a dead god?  Can they do any more for you than a god made from wood, metal, or stone?

Or are you trusting your eternal future to the living God? The one who hears and answers your prayers. The one who loves you and only wants the best for you. The one who chose to die for our sins. The one who wants us to spend eternity with him in heaven.

Jesus is alive! Ask him to show himself to you. Be sincere. Be open and God will make himself known to you.

Jesus said, “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” (Matthew 7:7)

Jesus is waiting just for you.

The Battle Within

Wolves Wolf Winter Predators Zoo WildlifeA Native American elder told his grandson about two wolves who live in every heart. One is Evil — anger, jealousy, pride, and selfishness. The other is Good — joy, love, peace, and humility.

The grandson asked his grandfather, “Which wolf wins?” His grandfather replied, “The one you feed.”

While not exactly a biblical illustration, it makes an important point: There is a battle raging in the heart of the Christian. As the Apostle Paul said when writing to the Galatians:

“For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want.” (Galatians 5:17)

Becoming a Christian does not mean that our struggles are over. We are forgiven and we are a child of God, but we still retain our sinful nature. We will battle our sin nature as long as we live here on earth. We are given the Holy Spirit to give us the power to overcome the desires of the flesh.

The more we feed the Spirit by faith in Christ. The more we are obedience and in prayer, Bible study, worship, and holy living, the weaker the flesh becomes. The closer our walk with the Lord becomes and the easier it is to say yes to the Spirit and no to the flesh.

However, when we feed the sinful nature, our walk with the Lord becomes weaker. Every time we give into the lusts of the flesh, we are saying no to the Spirit. The more often we say yes to the flesh, the easier it becomes. If we say yes too often, some things can become an addiction with devastating consequences. Satan will not miss an opportunity to drag us down.

But, when we say no to the sin nature, we become stronger. Saying no to the flesh just one time makes us stronger. The more we say no to sin, the stronger we become and the desire of the flesh become weaker. If we keep saying yes to the spirit and no to the flesh, we will win the battle.

Don’t be discouraged if you cannot escape the struggle within. Instead, feed the Spirit through prayer and worship. Deny the lust of the flesh. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, you can win the battle within. The Heavenly reward will be beyond what we can comprehend. (1 Corinthians 2:9)

Feed the good wolf in you!

Forgivness

Our forgiving others is absolutely crucial to our physical and spiritual health. We cannot have a healthy relationship with God if we are holding a grudge against another person. It doesn’t matter if we are right and feel that we are justified to be mad at someone. Jesus stated the second most important commandment after loving God is to love others.  
“Jesus replied: “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” (Matthew 22:37-40)

“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” (John 13:34)

There may be a few people in our lives that we love as much as ourselves, but without God’s help, it is impossible to love others as ourselves. As humans, we are very self-centered. For instance, when we look at a picture that we are in, don’t we look at ourselves first? Don’t we judge whether the picture is good or bad by how we look in it?

I’m just making a point here. Loving and forgiving others is not always easy. Sometimes it is impossible without God’s help. It may not be easy, but it is vital to our relationship with Christ.

The scriptures tell us that our forgiveness depends on our forgiving others. Continue reading

The Biblical Flood — Proof & Effects

Global flood stories have been documented in almost every region of the world. Ancient civilizations such as in (Europe, Africa, the Near East, China and Asia, North, Central and South America, Australia, the Pacific Islands) all have their stories of the great flood. Old world missionaries reported their amazement at finding remote tribes already possessing legends with tremendous similarities to the Bible’s account of the worldwide flood. Altogether there are over 500 Flood legends worldwide.Noah and The Great Flood Cover

These flood tales are often linked by common elements with the Biblical account, such as the warning of the coming flood, the construction of a boat, the storage of animals, the inclusion of family, the release of birds to determine if the flood waters had subsided. The overwhelming consistency of these flood legends from distant parts of the world indicates that they were derived from the same original event.

If you consider that nearly every part of the world has their version of the global flood and that most of the earth’s surface, even on the mountain tops are made up of sedimentary bedrock. Obviously, there was a worldwide flood regardless what the evolutionists claim.

This book provides proof of a Biblical worldwide flood and backs it up with geological data. The information in this book offers evidence of creation by an omnipotent God and a global flood as God’s judgment of a sinful world. It provides evidence as to what the earth was like before the flood. It was a world that after creation God had declared very good. Even after the fall of man, it was still paradise compared with the world we know today. The catastrophic effects of a worldwide flood changed this planet drastically.

 

The Awesome God Who Made the Universe Loves YOU!

 

universe2God loves you!
The God who created the world and everything in it. Loves you. He loves you so much that he sent his son to die a horrible death in order to make it possible for YOU to spend eternity with him.
Imagine the God of the universe who created all and knows all, loves you! To understand how great God’s love for you is, we need to understand how great our God is. Look around you at the natural world God created and yet what you see is just a shadow of the world he originally created for us. Because of the sin of man the original world was destroyed by the flood. However, the Bible tells that there is a day coming when God will create a new heaven here on earth. It will be even better than the garden of Eden was. It will be beyond our imagination!
In 1 Corinthians 2:9, we are told, “However, as it is written: “What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived” — the things God has prepared for those who love him”
Why is God doing this? Because he loves us! Continue reading
