Key Verse: Job 39:13a
The wings of the ostrich wave proudly…
Mountain goats, wild donkeys, onagers, wild oxen, ostriches, storks, horses, hawks and eagles are all mentioned in today’s reading. Most of us have sat in classrooms and listened to teachers who taught that all life came into being as a result of some cosmic accident. In addition to truth about God’s power, there is much here in chapter 39 about the origins of each species. In the fossil records, all these creatures appear suddenly and fully formed. There are no fossils that show part dinosaur and part ostrich! If one transformed into the other over millions of years, there should be thousands of intermediate creatures in the fossil record. There are none to be found where a creature is being changed gradually into another species. National Geographic had several pages where they pictured a creature from the Gobi Desert in China that someone claimed was part reptile and part bird. Six months later a tiny article stated that the so-called evidence had been faked. This was the case of other “missing links.” The Piltdown Man, the Nebraska Man, and others were all fakes created because of desperation to find some shred of evidence to disprove Intelligent Design and God’s creation.
PRAYER FOR TODAY:
Lord, I praise You for Your amazing, mind-boggling acts of creation! I feel the need to pray to You as the “Creator,” joining King David in his prayer, “Create in me a clean heart” (Psalm 51). I need You, Great Creator, every day in every way. Amen!!!
100 PERSONAL WORDS:
Crossroads has just produced and released a documentary which features several highly credentialed scientists who are believers in Jesus as Saviour and Lord (click HERE to watch the trailer and HERE to order a DVD). On yesterday’s 100 Huntley Street program, Dr. Jerry Johnston introduced a short clip from the documentary and also asked for viewers to help with a donation toward the cost of this kind of top-quality production on various topics (HERE is a link to what he said). For Crossroads, this is the first major effort at a “Science & Faith” production since 1979 when we produced the “Crossroads Creation” series. As I mentioned yesterday, God took that series beyond North America and all 13 episodes were released across all 15 republics of the former Soviet Union in the Russian language on prime time television. If we are all still here tomorrow by God’s grace, I’ll post a link to another video in that series.
Here is another excerpt from the new “Science & Faith” documentary highlighting the story of one of the four prominent scientists featured (click HERE).
Yours for God’s creative power flowing through us to do His will!
P.S. Below is a photo taken yesterday of me holding an ostrich egg. There is a story behind this egg…and behind the scripture verse on it. I’ll have to tell you about it in a future blog posting.
