GOD’S WORD FOR MAY 6
GOD’S WORD FOR MAY 6 ~ ~ Genesis 11:31 ~ ~ “…and they went forth with them from Ur of the Chaldees, to go into the land of Canaan…”
The trip that The Lord commanded Terah, Abraham, Sarah, and Lot was well over 1,000 miles, which they accomplished on foot and on donkeys or camels. A great many went with them, including flocks and herds, beasts of burden with lots of food for the journey, and many servants. Some critics have rejected the accuracy of this in the Bible because they say that at that time in history that length of trip was not possible.
But several years ago, they found a clay tablet which was a rental contract for an ancient Babylonian wagon, from before the time of Abraham. The contract forbids the wagon renter from taking the wagon as far as the lands on the Mediterranean Coast. That would have been at least as far as Abraham traveled.
This shows that trips of that length were common enough that clauses had to be included to limit or procure extra payment for going too far with the rented wagons.
Evolutionists would have us believe that, since (they believe) we came from monkeys, there were “cave men” and half-human species at that time. This could not be further from the truth. Excavations have shown that man was distinctly man from the first week of Creation, and every animal kind was distinct within itself. There is absolutely no evidence that anything turned into anything.
What’s more, they were very intelligent, and, obviously many of them had the good sense to be focused on the God of Creation, and submitted to His will in their lives,instead of the commercial world around them. Many today are not making that good choice. Are you?
