GOD’S WORD FOR SEPTEMBER 26
GOD’S WORD FOR SEPTEMBER 26 ~ ~ Genesis 1:16~ ~ “And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: [he made] the stars also.”
Let’s say that you drop by a friend’s house, and you find her at one end of the kitchen with a sponge mop in her hands. Three-quarters of the kitchen floor is wet. That picture provides you with a type of clock. You know that she has been mopping the kitchen floor for awhile and is nearly done.
It’s much the same in space. There is a great deal of dust in between the Earth, the moon, all the other planets, and the sun. If you have ever seen a meteor or “shooting star” streak through the night sky, the bright trail was probably made by a particle no larger than a grain of sand. The Earth was doing its part in the solar system’s ongoing janitorial work. Yes, some of this space dust actually ends up in our homes!
Unlike what often seems to be true in our homes, there is a limited supply of dust in space. It is, however, still a huge amount. Like your friend’s kitchen floor, we might get an idea of how long the Earth, the sun and the other planets have been around by finding out how much of that dust has already been cleaned up. According to scientists’ own figures, our Earth and the rest of the solar system could not have been around more than 10,000 years!
This is such a mystery to scientists who believe that things are billions of years old that some have even suggested that this dust doesn’t follow the laws of physics. However, this is no mystery to those of us who know that the Bible provides for only about 6,000 years of Earth history – and therefore only about 6,000 years of space dust janitorial service!
Creation occurred about 6,000 years ago. We know this by the detailed geneologies in the Old Testament. The Word records these because it is the family tree of Jesus Christ. By knowing the ages of each father at the birth of his pertinent son, and how long he lived after that, it is relatively simple to figure very closely the age of the earth.
Archaeological digs have proven this time and time again. The evolutionary propaganda of millions of years, and animals developing from a muddy swamp is purely from satan himself. But, it is still being taught because they don’t want to teach the truth. When people know the Truth, they will believe in Jesus, and these people don’t want that.
If they succeed in throwing out the Truth of the Book of Genesis and the six days of creation, they will eventually throw out the entire Bible and fall into the deception of all of satan’s lies, because that is the foundation and the beginning of Mankind, and God’s interaction with us, including Christ’s death and Resurrection, on which our Salvation hangs.
Don’t let cracks expand in your foundational beliefs. Read the Word, and shows people the Truth.
