When I look at the unfathomable vastness of the universe, the intricate workings of the solar system, the constant, predictable journey of the moon around the earth and the earth around the sun, it's incomprehensible to me that it just happened. It is inconceivable for me to believe that it was just a random occurrence, nothing more than the explosion of gases in space that luckily resulted in a nine planet solar system, with the third one from the center being the only known inhabited planet in existence.
When I consider the process by which a child is conceived and born, the complexity of plant life, the cycle of the seasons, the way a spring rain revives a dormant field and the ability of a human being to reason and love, these and so many, many other things make me know, in my heart and in my intellect, that everything that exists – down to the air we breathe – was designed and created by a being of such power and intelligence, such omniscience, omnipresence and omnipotence that the human mind cannot conceive His might and His ability.
The fact is, human beings are not the evolutionary result of some amoeba that washed up on a shoreline somewhere, or whatever the popular, secular theory happens to be. Such a theory has never been and never will be proven, simply because it is not true.
There is no missing link, and after exhausting every possible avenue to prove otherwise, even Darwin, who created the Theory of Evolution, could not produce one. And Oscar Wilde, the atheist author and playwright, who once called evolution the “law of life,” converted to Christianity on his deathbed.
That man was created from the dust of the earth, breath breathed into his lungs by the Creator and sprang forth fully formed and fully functional is totally irrefutable to me.
God created an orderly and peaceful environment for man, and had Adam and Eve not rebelled against Him, they would have lived forever.
But, as we all know, Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit and were banished from the paradise God created for them. And the human race has been at odds with each other ever since.
Hence, the atmosphere of mistrust and volatility we live in today – a world of constant war, famine, enmity and the unquenchable thirst for power.
The God who created this world also sent us prophets thousands of years ago to tell us how things would be in the latter days we are rapidly approaching.
In a "cut to the chase" summation, the upshot is that there will be no end to war until the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.
Society will continue to decline and crime and violence will become even more pervasive. Crookedness, dishonesty, deception, general acceptance of ever-diminishing standards of morality and catastrophic fiscal upheaval will cause the demise of governments and wreak havoc on whole segments of society.
Book of the Holy Bible - 2 Timothy 3:2
"For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy.”
When you look around, if you'll be honest with yourself, you have to admit that the beginnings of those days are upon us as man sets and accepts lower and lower standards, calls the truth a lie and a lie the truth, condones more and more evil, denying the existence of the God who created him.
God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah and drove His Chosen People out of the land He gave them because they sinned so grievously against Him.
How long will a just God allow America and other apostate nations, who increasingly embrace godlessness, to exist and prosper?
I honestly don't know, but get ready, it's coming.
What do you think?
Pray for our troops and the peace of Jerusalem.
God bless America
