Christ The Creationist

The Bible is full of affirmations for a recent creation, if one properly reads, exegetes, and believes in it!  Both Old and New Testaments confirm this fact to be true.  Jesus Christ also validates this often, and a couple more of His references are cited below, in the devotional “Days Of Praise” from the Institute For Creation Research.  This article was written by their founder, Dr. Henry M. Morris:

Christ the Creationist
by Henry M. Morris, Ph.D. | Oct. 5, 2017
“For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be.” (Mark 13:19)
In predicting a future judgment on the unbelieving world, the Lord Jesus referred to “the beginning of the creation which God created,” thus affirming the biblical doctrine of supernatural, sudden creation. In the pagan world of His day, evolutionism was dominant almost everywhere. The Epicureans, for example, were atheistic evolutionists. The Stoics, Gnostics, Platonists, and others were pantheistic evolutionists. None of the extra-biblical philosophers of His day believed in a God who had created all things, including even the universe itself.
But Christ was a creationist, and the much-maligned “scientific creationists” of today are following His example and teaching. He even believed in recent creation, for He said (speaking of Adam and Eve) that “from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female” (Mark 10:6). The pagans all believed in an eternal cosmos, but Jesus said it had a beginning and that man and woman were a part of that beginning creation, following which “the sabbath was made for man” (Mark 2:27).
He also believed that the “two accounts” of creation (Genesis 1 and 2) were complementary, not contradictory, for He quoted from both in the same context. “Have ye not read,” He said, “that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female [Genesis 1], And said For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? [Genesis 2]” (Matthew 19:4-6).
There may be some Christians who are evolutionists, but there is no such thing as “Christian evolution,” for Christ was a creationist! HMM

2015 Second Orlando Prophecy Summit, Part 51

Jeff Swanson interviewed by Doug Hagmann and Joe Hagmann

Jeff Swanson has a website planbible.com It is his life work that produced a chronological Bible that is in order verse by verse.  It is the only one of its kind.

Where are we in the prophetical time line?  Jeff believes the signs at the end times will intensify and occur in rapid order within a relatively brief period of time.

Are we seeing prophecy fulfilled everyday in the headlines?  Yes.  They are not single events, but merging patterns and seasons.  The Middle East is falling together.  Nations are becoming antisemitic and standing against Israel.  Genesis 12:3  “I will bless them that bless thee, and curse them that curse thee.”  When the United States went against Israel, the Lord allowed us to be punished in the exact same amount through Hurricane Katrina.

There are 800 prophecies/verses that have been fulfilled in the Bible.  There are 2,500 prophecies/verses yet to be fulfilled.

Jeff Swanson’s studies of the Bible and his expertise in mathematics have enabled him to date key Biblical events.  Consider the following:

Using the Julian, Gregorian and Jewish calendars, Jeff Swanson completed 66 calculations and arrived at a creation date of 3960 B.C.  Jeff agreed with the famous Archbishop James Ussher (author of Annals of the World) on all but two calculations.  They arrived at creation dates only 44 years apart.  Ussher’s date of creation is 4004 B.C.

Jeff Swanson’s other dates are:

Date of Christ’s birth: September 11, 3 B.C.  (Julian Calendar)

Christ’s Crucifixion:  April 3, 33 A.D.  (Julian Calendar

Christ’s Crucifixion:  April 1, 33 A.D.  (Gregorian Calendar)

Jeff Swanson advised Christians that the Lord has placed each of us within a particular sphere of influence.  We are to be faithful to the people who God has placed in our lives.  We are touching more people than we realize.  After we leave this earth, the Lord will use the legacy of our lives to continually touch people in a powerful way that we do not fully understand.  [This was one of the most profound statements that I ever heard in a prophecy conference.  The interviewers, Haggman and Hagmann were touched by it as well].

Are Dinosaurs Extinct?

All right.  You are from Missouri and say “show me.”  Watch the following “hot off the press You Tube” from Kim Joiner in Florida.

Published on Jan 16, 2017

Who says Dinosaurs are extinct?”
Giant gator caught strolling through Polk nature center
A giant alligator was caught on camera during a morning stroll at a nature center in Polk County.
The Lakeland Police Department shared the video, taken by Kim Joiner, on their Facebook page saying, “Who says Dinosaurs are extinct?”
The big daddy gator was strolling through the Circle B Bar Reserve, an area of of protected lands in Polk County.
In the video you can see four other people recording the surprise encounter, and not from a far distance – Ekkk!

What these folks do not know, is that a giant alligator IS a dinosaur.  Dinosaur means “terrible lizard.”  I would suggest the aforementioned “You Tube” qualifies.  And so does the following, featuring the Komodo Dragons, the largest lizards on earth.  The folks in Indonesia who live near these reptiles, leave their lights on at night because there is no end to what they will try to eat – including the poor soul whose turn it is to take out the trash.

Dinosaurs coexisted with man.  Science, history, paleontology, archaeology, and anthropology all prove this to be true.  The best proof to the born again Christian is found in the book of Job.  Read Job 40:15-24 and all of chapter 41.  In these pages you will find a reference to a giant land dinosaur, a plesiosaur, and a fire breathing dragon.  Every continent and every major ancient culture refers to dinosaurs.  A dragon is featured on the national flag of Wales, one was carved on the ancient Ishtar Gates of Babylon, they are carved on the Ica stones in Peru, and they were observed by Marco Polo during his explorations throughout the Far East.  They are represented in the parades in China when they celebrate the new year.  They are replete throughout history.

True Science Is In Perfect Harmony With The Bible / Apologetics

Below are a few of the countless proofs of the inspiration of the Bible.  The Lord knows all about His creation, so the very limited scientific understanding of man was already known by God in eternity past:

FASCINATING BIBLE FACTS!
The Bible is filled with scientific facts, written thousands of years before man discovered them. 
Did you know…
At a time when it was believed that the earth sat on a large animal or a giant (1500 B.C.), the Bible spoke of the earth’s free float in space. Job 26: 7 reads… “He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing.” Science didn’t discover that the earth hangs upon nothing until 1650.
Did you know…
The Scriptures tell us that the earth is round. Isaiah 40:22 reads… “It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth,…” The word translated “circle” here is the Hebrew wordchuwg, which is also translated “circuit” or “compass” (depending on the context). That is, it indicates something spherical, rounded, or arched – not something that is flat or square. The book of Isaiah was written sometime between 740 and 680 B.C. This is at least 300 years before Aristotle suggested, in his book “On the Heavens,” that the earth might be a sphere. It was another 2,000 years later (at a time when science believed that the earth was flat) that the Scriptures inspired Christopher Columbus to sail around the world. 
Did you know…
Science can only speculate why dinosaurs disappeared. However, the answer may be in Job 40: 15-24. In this passage, God Himself speaks of a great creature called “behemoth.” Some Bible commentators think this is a reference to the hippopotamus. However, one of the characteristics of this massive animal is that it had a tail the size of a large tree. The Hippo’s tail isn’t like a tree; it’s more like a small twig.
Here are all the given characteristics of this huge animal: It was the largest of all the creatures God made; was plant-eating (herbivorous); had its strength in its hips, and a tail like a large tree. It had very strong bones, lived among the trees, drank massive amounts of water, and was not disturbed by a raging river. He appears impervious to attack because his nose could pierce through snares, but Scripture says in verse 19, “He that made him can make his sword to approach unto him.” In other words, God caused this, the largest of all the creatures He had made, to become extinct. 
Did you know…
Modern deep-sea-diving cameras have discovered amazing hot-water vents on the floor of the oceans – “the springs of the sea.” Job 38:16 reads… “Hast thou entered into the springs of the sea?” These thermal vents release huge amounts of mineral-rich, super-heated water – springs in the darkness.
For thousands of years, all the answers to puzzling questions can be found within the precious pages of the Bible. A wise man knows where to go to find the answers!

Massive Full-Scale Version of Noah’s Ark Comes to Life in Kentucky

 

 

There might not be a flood of biblical proportions in the forecast, but Noah’s Ark is coming to Williamstown, Kentucky, this summer.

Massive Full-Size Version of Noah's Ark Comes to Life in Kentucky

A full-size version of Noah’s Ark is expected to be completed before Ark Encounter, a Bible-themed park, opens July 7.

Ken Ham had the massive ship built to match the dimensions set out in the Bible. The entire project is expected to cost $100 million.

“The message that we have — it’s making the Bible come alive, really. By building Noah’s Ark, we’re saying, ‘This really happened. This is plausible,'” Ham told “Nightline.”

According to Ham, his ark is 510 feet long, 85 feet wide and 51 feet high. “It gets bigger and bigger. When you get inside, it gets bigger again,” he said.

Ark Encounter is just a few miles from Ham’s Creation Museum, which attracts nearly half a million visitors a year and teaches a young Earth theory of creation. Ham calls his ministry Answers in Genesis.

“We have a lot of people who are not Christians who come here, and they appreciate the way it’s presented. It’s presented very tastefully,” said Ham. “It’s educational.”

Visitors to the Creation Museum can find exhibits like Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, which is next to one showing dinosaurs playfully eating fruit.

One of Ham’s biggest critics is Bill Nye, an evolutionist who is known as the television personality the Science Guy. He dismissed Ham’s creationist exhibits as biblical propaganda. Nye said dinosaurs died out long before human beings ever came along.

“I can prove that beyond any reasonable doubt. That is what’s very troubling. Allosauruses and humans did not live at the same time. Teaching the earth is 6,000 years old is completely wrong and inappropriate,” he told “Nightline.”

“When they dig up dinosaur bones, they don’t dig them up with labels on saying, ‘Hi, I’m 70 million years old,’ or whatever it is,” Ham said. “We’re saying that most of those bones they dig up are actually from the flood of Noah’s day, not from millions of years ago.”

Ham rejected mainstream science institutions as evolutionary doctrinaires.

“Museums like the Natural History Museum inWashington, D.C., Smithsonian or Chicago Field Museum, mostly they teach that we supposedly evolved [from] apelike creatures. Why shouldn’t we be able to use the same technology and really challenge people to consider the Bible as the true history of the world?” he said.

Ham’s Noah’s Ark project took advantage of $18 million in tax benefits and tourism incentives.

The state of Kentucky attempted to block the project from receiving public funding, but Ham took his case to court and won. “Christians pay taxes in this world. We live in this world. We’re not second-class citizens. The federal judge rule in our favor,” he said.

“It’s just inappropriate. To me, [it’s] a clear violation of the First Amendment, for crying out loud,” Nye argued.

To work at Ark Encounter, job applicants must sign a statement of faith, professing a Christian belief in the creation story. For instance, they agree that the “great flood of Genesis was an actual historic event, worldwide in its extent and effect.”

Ham said this is necessary because “we are a Christian organization and we have a Christian message.”

Among the construction workers who have helped build the ark are Amish carpenters who said part of their faith included accepting the Bible as truth. The artists who created the ark’s exhibits are believers too.

“There’s a lot of people that scoff,” Ham said. “We get a lot of attacks by some of the aggressive secularists. Sometimes I feel a bit like Noah.”

Admission to Ark Encounter will be $40 for adults and $28 for children, and Ham said he expects that fascination with Noah and his ark will result in 1 million to 2 million visitors in the first year.

“We really do believe that if we build it, they will come. And they’re going to come,” Ham said.

**************

About 4,000 years ago, the people laughed at Noah because he built the ark on dry land.  Today, the people laugh at Ken Ham for building a replica of the ark on dry land.  Yes indeed, the more things change, the more they stay the same.  Pagan evolutionists like Bill Nye, actually despise the replica of the ark being built because they hate the truth.  The Scopes’ Monkey Trial of 1925 asserted that evolutionists simply desired an equal voice.  That “equal” voice has snuffed God and prayer out of the classroom, and contributed to moral decadence throughout this once great nation.  Abortion, euphanasia, fornication, and every other form of debauchery find their roots in this godless philosophy.  A mere generation ago, Christianity ruled the land as we enjoyed a wonderful way of life.  We have “sown the wind, and we are reaping the whirlwind.”  Hosea 8:7    Maranatha, Pastor Steve

More Proof That The Biblical Giants Mentioned In Genesis 6 Once Walked On Our Planet

There are a plethora of historical and archaeological articles on this blog site, as well actual proof that Biblical Giants once walked the earth, under the category “Old Testament Giants.”  The following article is written from a secular standpoint, but much to the chagrin of worldly thinkers, it places an awful wrinkle in their evolutionary scheme.    Pastor Steve

10 Alleged Discoveries That Suggest Giants Existed

 

Apostasy Is Becoming Prevalent In The Church

2 Thessalonians 2:3 King James Version (KJV)

Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

 

Matthew 24:24

 “For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.”

APOSTASY  …is when the belief system of the fallen world enters the church.  What was recently called sexual perversion is the new normal.  Today’s America is like ancient Sodom.  Sodom was so apostate that Sodomites even attempted to rape angels, even after the Sodomites were blinded!  [What is mind boggling is the naivety of people today, who seem to believe we are exempt from God’s judgment from our sanctifying of sodomy!  There is absolutely no fear of God.  Keep in mind that we have so much more light than the ancient Sodomites, yet we wink at this hideous abomination.  Judgment is coming very soon.]  Our president and the supreme court have been working on sanctifying “gay” marriage, and promoting the LGBT movement for years with great success.  After the supreme court’s recent vote to allow these “marriages,” the White House was bathed in rainbow colors, thus displaying their consummate approval and endorsement of this decision.  Most Christian leaders realize that the next step for those who practice these abominations, is for them to demand acceptance within the church.  Many mainline churches will have no worries, because they have already gone apostate.  So much for freedom of religion.  Church members are scrambling to change their by laws as to what constitutes a Biblical marriage, who can use the restrooms, etc., etc.  Make no mistake, those who oppose the New World Order (NWO) will eventually have their land and buildings confiscated, and their churches dissolved, unless the Lord intervenes.  The Bible tells us in Daniel 7:25 that the Antichrist will change our laws.  I cannot imagine a greater change than to turn God’s plan for marriage on its’ head.  We have usurped 6,000 years of human history and standards for morality and made a total mockery of God’s ideal for marriage and family.  Many mainline Christian churches have already accepted these life styles which means that the Lord has taken His candlestick out from among them.  Wherever apostasy prevails, the Holy Spirit leaves.  In North Carolina, people who oppose the rights of the LGBT crowd to use the public restrooms are referred to as hateful.  Who would like their nine year old child to enter a public restroom with one who believes they are a man today and a woman tomorrow?  Anyone who stands for Biblical, traditional and normal values is labeled as hateful and phobic.  Churches are becoming less bold and even timid about confronting these issues.                                                                                          Tran bathroom abuse

Acceptance of sexual unions outside of God’s parameters is a huge sign that the church age may be winding down.  If this is the case, then apocalyptic events like the rapture of the church and the Great Tribulation could be right around the corner.  So what should be our attitude given these circumstances?  Should we be sad or glad?  The Bible has the answer:

Luke 21:28 King James Version (KJV)

28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

 This is the blessed hope of the church.  Maranatha, the Lord is coming!

Where Is Solomon’s Temple? Where Is Golgotha? A Paradigm Shift In Archaeology…

Chuck Missler has been working with Bob Cornuke over the past couple of years, attempting to ascertain the genuine sites of both Solomon’s Temple and Mount Calvary / Golgotha, where Jesus Christ was crucified.  Chuck Missler is very well known in Christian circles, affiliated with Koinonia Institute.  Chuck excels in several areas in Christendom, most noteworthy in Bible prophecy.  Bob Cornuke has been referred to as the Indiana Jones, from a Biblical / Christian perspective, in modern archaeology.  In his career, he has pursued the sites of the real Mount Sinai, the Ark of the Covenant, Noah’s Ark, the four anchors of Paul’s shipwreck off Malta, and most recently Solomon’s Temple / Golgotha.  The following You Tubes discuss the recent joint ventures of Chuck Missler and Bob Cornuke, as they pursue the real sites of Solomon’s Temple and Golgotha (where Jesus was crucified):

The Real Solomon’s Temple ~ Bob Cornuke

Here is a fascinating “thumb nail sketch” of Bob Cornuke’s discovery in Jerusalem of the real Solomon’s Temple site.  I devour books as a pastor, and one of the best unique, original and cutting edge books I have ever purchased is “Temple” by Robert Cornuke.  The following You Tube is an excellent summary of the book.  Bob has found channels in which the blood of sacrificed animal flowed, olive presses, and stalls/chains for animals underneath the original City of David/Mount Zion.  This is the site of the Gihon Springs and the water source for Solomon’s Temple.  The “Temple Mount” where the Dome of the Rock is, was the base of a Roman emcampment.  The Temple of Solomon is 600-1000 feet south of this locale, in the original City of David.  Enjoy the audio and pick up a copy of Temple for a detailed analysis:

I just spoke with Bob Cornuke this morning (3/2/16), and there is another mind blowing discovery made, with a book soon to follow.  He is teaming up with Chuck Missler on this latest venture.  I understand Missler will be the premier author.  As soon as specifics are available, they will be on this blog site.  Bob’s website is http://www.baseinstitute.org

In Christ, Pastor Steve
