DO YOU KNOW?

Today’s Reading: Job 39

Click scripture link to read online or HERE to listen online (then click the symbol of the audio speaker above the scripture portion).

 

In Israel’s Jordan Valley, the wildlife reserve Hai-Bar Yotvata is located in the southern Arava Valley north of Eilat. It was established to foster the breeding of the kinds of animals mentioned in Job 39 and other endangered desert animals.

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 also 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 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). 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!

David

P.S. Below is a photo 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.

  1. Oh amen, amen, and amen–to our Creator God–the ruler and divine master of all the universe–we give You all the glory and praise!! Will watch the videos when I return, this afternoon, David. Thank you for posting them and all the links that go so well with the theme in Job 39, today. There is no one wiser than our God, who knows every living creature from start to finish! Praying for you, this morning, Mary, during your surgery! Blessings, dearest saints!

  2. Amen David I needed Psalm 51 today!
    I wish I knew how to send links Irene, but I googled your songs(from yesterday) and they’re overwhelmingly beautiful! I choose to be holy. How glorious!!
    Abundant blessings to all, especially Mary Stewart recovering from surgery right now!!

  3. A good read again today. I went to the link to order the DVD but it said, out of supply and will be available in December. They will notify me by e-mail. How can folk possibly believe we evolved? No way can a bumble bee fly – too heavy. How can salmon know where to return to spawn unless the are programmed to do so? How do birds sing? The Cardinal has about 4 different songs! On and on. The only answer is: created by God.

  4. TY Lord God for the rain! some fires are out, but not all.
    Please pray for a neighbour, Cathy, who needs a portable clothes line;
    please pray for another neighbour Donna, has stomach infection is on meds, pray the infection disappears and Donna is healthy, she is attending a wedding of great-grand-daughter on Saturday and is going to be grandparents of their first biological grandchild! Very exciting! Donna has a great family, her children married others who had children and they adopted the children including the Father of this biological grandchild! The baby is due in October, pray that all will be well, healthy baby, healthy parents and grand-parents.
    Praise and thanks be to God for all these blessings!
