GOD’S WORD FOR NOVEMBER 23
GOD’S WORD FOR NOVEMBER 23 ~ ~ Psalm 55 6-7 ~ ~ “And I said, Oh that I had wings like a dove! For then would I fly away, and be at rest. Lo, then would I wander far off, and remain in the wilderness.”
These days, we don’t have to wait very long before we hear some nonsense about how flight or – more recently – space travel are but stages in human evolutionary development. As Christians, we know that when Adam, the first man, is described as perfect, he is perfect in every way – spiritually, morally and intellectually. This probably explains why Scripture says that within the first few generations of human existence on Earth, the arts and sciences were flourishing. But the curse from sin took affect gradually, and perfection was farther and farther in the past as time went on.
In 1898, an object that was thought to be a small wooden model of a bird was discovered in Egypt. The “unremarkable” find was tossed into a box marked “wooden bird models” and was rediscovered in more recent times. The Egyptian Ministry of Culture set up a special panel to study the object. As a result of that study, the object is on display at the Cairo Museum today as the centerpiece of a special exhibit. It is now officially labeled as a model airplane.
The plane’s design shows that it is an excellent glider, and with a small engine it could carry huge loads because of the unique design of its wings. This 2,200 year old model airplane had wings that angle slightly downward at the ends—exactly the same improved wing design that was first used in modern times on the supersonic Concorde!
The proof has always been there, man didn’t evolve, he was created as the Creator God wanted him to be, as the Word tells us. It was sin that brought about evil, but that didn’t change the wisdom or talents that God put into man.
All of wisdom is in the Word of God. When man starts picking and choosing what he wants to believe in the Word, he will, (corporately and individually) sacrifice both wisdom and eternal salvation.
Throwing out, or skirting around, any Word in the Bible will create a fissure that will enlarge with time and erode the faith of mankind, dooming many to eternal punishment. Only believing the Word will keep us on the straight and narrow.
“Does the hawk fly by your wisdom, And spread its wings toward the south?
