Today Reminder – 7 June 2017

A reminder for today
Care for the flock that God has entrusted to you. Watch over it willingly, not grudgingly—not for what you will get out of it, but because you are eager to serve God. (1 Peter 5:2)

I get so upset when I see how this world has become a mecca of lies and deceit and we are forced to believe it. We are frowned upon when we stand up for our faith and we disagree with the norm. Everywhere we look people are indoctrinated by the lies of the enemy and we are pushed aside for who will believe us. When you google “How old is the earth?” you get the answer that the earth is believed to be 4.5 billion years old and whenever you watch a show on TV that is about the earth everyone is in agreement. 

Simply put, it came from the Bible. Of course, the Bible doesn’t say explicitly anywhere, “The earth is 6,000 years old.” Good thing it doesn’t; otherwise it would be out of date the following year. But we wouldn’t expect an all-knowing God to make that kind of a mistake. 

God gave us something better. In essence, He gave us a “birth certificate.” For example, using a personal birth certificate, a person can calculate how old he is at any point. It is similar with the earth. Genesis 1 says that the earth was created on the first day of creation (Genesis 1:1–5). From there, we can begin to calculate the age of the earth. 

Let’s do a rough calculation to show how this works. The age of the earth can be estimated by taking the first five days of creation (from earth’s creation to Adam), then following the genealogies from Adam to Abraham in Genesis 5 and 11, then adding in the time from Abraham to today.
Adam was created on day 6, so there were five days before him. If we add up the dates from Adam to Abraham, we get about 2,000 years, using the Masoretic Hebrew text of Genesis 5 and 11.3 Whether Christian or secular, most scholars would agree that Abraham lived about 2,000 B.C. (4,000 years ago). 

So a simple calculation is:
5 days
+ ~2,000 years
+ ~4,000 years
~6,000 years 

So, who made man the right one. I know these scientists have all kinds of rock layer calculations that support their predictions. Thinking biblically, we can see that the global flood in Genesis 6–8 would wipe away the concept of millions of years, for this Flood would explain massive amounts of fossil layers. Most Christians fail to realize that a global flood could rip up many of the previous rock layers and redeposit them elsewhere, destroying the previous fragile contents. This would destroy any evidence of alleged millions of years anyway. So, the rock layers can theoretically represent the evidence of either millions of years or a global flood, but not both. Sadly, by about 1840, even most of the Church had accepted the dogmatic claims of the secular geologists and rejected the global flood and the biblical age of the earth.

This is ridiculous and it is not only in the age of the earth that we are forced to accept man’s views. It is taught in our schools. Our society has become an anti-God self-idolizing pool of lies. 

We should not stand for this. We should stand for what is right and we should not be afraid to share it. I do not want to stand before God and say I was too afraid to tell the truth. I do not want to see my fellow people end up in hell, because I was too scared to share the truth. I will not allow my children to be misled by the enemy nor will I stand and watch this world try and hide God. I am a son of God and I will shout out His existence even if it kills me. 

Do not let the enemy confuse you with lies. Test all with the Bible and go to God in prayer. He will show you the truth or He will lead you to it. Come and stand with me as we fight for Jesus and take His truth to the world around us. I am all for you Lord and I am yours. 

Lord, give us wisdom and strength so that we can destroy the lies of the enemy and take care of your flock. In Jesus name. 

Have an awesome day, dear friend of Jesus.
