Proverbs 27 10-27-19

We are in a war. The battle has been raging for some time. Will you fight or will you cry “peace at all cost?”

2 Stone is heavy and sand a burden, but a fool’s provocation is heavier than both.

This war is for the souls of men, of women, and of our children. It’s been going on for quite a while, now, and we are seeing the results of our pacifism. What am I talking about? The Bible vs. Darwinian Evolution.

This quote is from “Gospel Reset” by Ken Ham:

Let me put it this way. It’s as if the devil has said, “You Christians can go on teaching kids about the miracles Jesus did in the New Testament. You can teach them about the babe in a manger, and the Resurrection. You can teach them about Jesus healing blind people and raising the dead. Teach them about the feeding of the 5,000, about the Israelites crossing the Red Sea, about Jonah being in the great fish for three days. Go ahead. Teach them these stories. And while you are doing that, I’m going to be indoctrinating those same kids not to believe the Book. I’m going to use the fake news of evolution and millions of years to brainwash them into believing science has effectively disproved the Bible, making it nothing more than an outdated, obsolete book of ‘stories.’ And since you won’t be teaching apologetics, I will teach my own apologetics through the education systems, media, and the Internet to make sure they doubt God’s Word. The more this happens, most won’t even listen to your message of the gospel.” Page 107

What we don’t realize is the importance of the first 11 books of Genesis. Our entire Gospel is based upon God creating the heavens and the earth, in a real-live Adam and Eve, sin, the Curse, the Great Flood, the tower of Babel–even the account of Jonah. If these events were not real events, then Jesus “hung his hat on the wrong hook.”

[3] Some Pharisees came to him to test him. They asked, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any and every reason?” [4] “Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female, [5] and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’? [6] So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.” Matthew 19:3-6

Jesus’ teaching on marriage is based upon the Genesis account.

[38] Then some of the Pharisees and teachers of the law said to him, “Teacher, we want to see a miraculous sign from you.” [39] He answered, “A wicked and adulterous generation asks for a miraculous sign! But none will be given it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. [40] For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earthMatthew 12:38-40

Jesus based His resurrection on the fact that Jonah was a real person and his story was a real event.

[36] “No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. [37] As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. [38] For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; [39] and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. Matthew 24:36-39

Jesus based His Second Coming on the account of Noah and the Great Flood.

More than 75% of youth who grow up in church leave the faith after high school. The percentage is higher for those who attend a secular college. Why? Mainly because of the teaching of Evolution. WE MUST DO SOMETHING!

What can we do? Let’s begin by believing that:

  1. The Genesis account is TRUE. It happened in a literal six days. Adam and Eve were real. So was the Flood. And Jonah.
  2. Realize that Satan is the mastermind behind this war. He wants our children and grandchildren. Jesus spoke of this day, [9] “Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. [10] At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, [11] and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. [12] Because of the increase of wickedness, the love [and faith] of most will grow cold, [13] but he who stands firm to the end will be saved. Matthew 24:9
  3. Be proactive. Learn. There is SO MUCH archeological, biological, astronomical, and other information out there today that refutes Evolution that it’s ludicrous for us to NOT be sharing this information.

Verse 14 of Matthew 24 is where we should live, [14] And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. Because of these verses, I believe that the Return of Jesus is very near. Let’s join the battle!

Abba, I pray that all who read this blog will take it to heart and see the need to be proactive in what we believe and what we share with our family, friends, and all who are willing to listen with an open mind. Give us faith; open our eyes. Give us courage, knowledge, and wisdom to know what and when to share. Amen.
