Before we begin today’s post, I wanted to let you know I have closed my FB and IG accounts due to their new TOS. I am very sad to have to do this. There are SO many wonderful Orthodox communities and artist of all kinds on The Gram. I am going to miss them but also, my blog gained more new followers during the brief time I was on FB than it did during the years I was not. God will do what God will do. I don;t even know if I shoudl keep blogging but here I still am. I am a writer. I’m not the best, nor the worst, I just love to write. I especial enjoy writing about being a Cristian, God, and wellness; both physical and spiritual. Please keep me in your prayers. I am seeking guidance from God on how to proceed. In the mean time, let’s get to today’s post.
Today on; Believe Your Bible! Let’s talk about the creation timeline. Did it take God 6 days to create everything or 6 thousand years, or 6 million years? Hmmmm.
Genesis 1:5 “And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.” “And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night: and the evening and the morning were the first day.” … And there was evening and there was morning, one day.”
ONE day friends… ONE. Not 6 thousand or million years… ONE.
2 Peter 3:8-9 ‘But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.’
This bible verse has NOTHING to do with the creation story and yet many CHRISTIANS have wrongly used it to try and merge evolution and the story of creation. With God or TO God who stands outside of time where it is not marked as it is with we mere mortals yes, of course, time passes in a different unmarked manner than it does here on earth. In order for evolution to work, a lot of stuff needs to be reworked and revised and some heretics have gone so far as to allow the biblical accounting of creation to be distorted. Why? Science distorts none of their claims to fit biblical narrative and in fact have gone out of their way to destroy anything that can prove the Genesis account of creation to be accurate.
The above photo is of a burial mound in America that houses or did house, the remains of a giant. There were many such burial mounds in America and really, all over the world.
Genesis 6:4 The Nephilim were in the earth in those days, and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bore children to them; the same were the mighty men that were of old, the men of renown.
Gilgamesh was man of renown.
In this photo sits Gilgamesh. See how much larger he is than the people standing in front of him? When I was in school, I asked why he was depicted as being o large? The very incorrect reply was that people of honor and importance were often drawn or carved as large than other people in the same depiction so that they stood out as being important. Horse feathers. They were depicted as being larger because they were larger. I wonder how many Greek status are really life sized depictions?
A US Supreme Court ruling has forced the Smithsonian institution to release classified papers dating from the early 1900′s that proves the organization was involved in a major historical cover-up of evidence showing giants human remains in the tens of thousands had been uncovered all across America and were ordered to be destroyed by high-level administrators to protect the mainstream chronology of human evolution at the time.Article from Linkedin https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/smithsonian-admits-destruction-1000s-giant-human-skeletons-golden
I’m bringing this up because last night I was reading more in The Holy Angels book by Mother Alexandra.
She wrote: “From the above (She is referring to an excerpt from the book of Enoch) we can assume that the angels were created on the second day and ALSO FELL in that period.” She goes on to write – to my utter heart break and disappointment- “We must bear in mind that in biblical terms the word, ‘day’ has the cosmological interpretation of an age.”
In one moment I’m processing the coolness of the creation of the angels on day two and their almost immediate fall on the same day and then despairing a bit over the false information, Mother Alexandra provides about the length of the days of creation.
Is the bible an all of nothing kind of book? If you are going to change the truth of one point, creation, do you then change another as to Who created it? If you change how the word was created how can you hold on to the Son of God coming to save His creation… ALL of it? If you take away that we are on a planet created by God then you must take away that we are in God’s image for then there can be no God and if there is not God and people are random dust motes on a large random dust mote then you can do what you want with them because they hold no value. And do we not already see this happening in our world more and more each day?
These are some of the many issue, Jesus worked on overcoming in His ministry before His crucifixion. Why do you think Christianity is so hated by so many? Why are those in power even here in America trying to eradicate it? Because before there was Christ there was paganism. Paganism exploited people in every way possible. These days, America greatly resembles the paganism Christ encountered and fought so hard to overcome. Greed, sexual immorality, child sacrifice, and on and on. How does a country with so many churches have so little to show for their supposed faith? We gave ourselves away. We ‘played nice’. We ‘went along to get along’ and it has cost us dearly.
I do not advocate being rude, nasty or aggressively confrontational… but I DO advocate knowing enough about the bible and especially creation vs. evolution to be able to explain why you believe in the biblical account of the creation of the world. If you call yourself a Christian, stop allowing your religion to be exploited. Stop allowing your children to be taught only evolution in school. Stop allowing this evil lie to persist. Educate yourself… and your children.
The devil never compromises in his attacks against us so why do you compromise your beliefs?
We can clearly see where compromising the Word of God has taken our nation. The word of God people. Not the word of Bill Nye or Neil Degrasse Tyson. They too are only created. They are not The Creator.
While many people are under the mistaken impression that Bill Nye is a scientist, he does not have any scientific credentials. His six honorary doctorates were given to him for his work on educational TV shows, and for showing up as a guest speaker, not for any actual scientific research that he’s done.Oct 13, 2017Taken from Medium.com https://medium.com/christian-intellectual/why-bill-nye-is-not-a-scientist-and-why-it-matters-20b6e3fc3fee
I am linking up a couple books and resources to help you study Genesis. I have not properly reviewed these books so I cannot give any description beyond what I find on the selling pages.
This classic commentary on Genesis 1–11 contains a thorough analysis of the text itself, and has a number of features that set it apart from many other Genesis commentaries:
It defends the biblical creationist position: creation in six consecutive normal days, death resulting from Adam’s fall, and a globe-covering Flood, and confusion of languages at Babel, and in the process it explains how the rest of the Bible interprets Genesis in the above straightforward manner.
While skillfully documenting how interpreters throughout Church history have taught the above, and that long-age death-before-sin views were a reaction to 19th-century uniformitarian geology, it also provides cutting-edge scientific support for the Genesis history.
Importantly it demonstrates that all doctrines of Christianity begin in Genesis 1–11, and straightforwardly answers the commonest objections to a plain understanding of these crucial Genesis texts.
There are more out there you need to dig.
So much has taken from Christians around ht world. Let’s not make it too easy for them. Study. Know the word of God. READ, READ, READ. And above all else, believe your bible.
