What Makes The Universe Tick?

The answer won’t be found in the “god particle”. But, that’s one of the goals of desperate scientists these days. They’ve built the most collosal machine ever in the hopes that their “Hadron Particle Collidor” will enable them to smash a few protons to bits and reveal their inner workings.

 For years men have been trying to use mathematics to figure out how things work in the universe. Einstein realized that there was an enormous amount of potential energy stored inside of every atom. If this energy could be released, the energy could be harnessed and used in various ways. The result was the atom bomb and Nuclear power plants and Nuclear powered ships and submarines.

But math could only take them so far in their quest to understand how matter works. Many things could not be easily put into mathematical equations and formulae. The tiny particles that make up atoms are much more complicated than originally thought.

I appears that it will take massive machines and the energy of entire citys to probe deeper into this mystery. The mystery that manifests itself as the minute entity we call the, “atom” or the substance we call, “matter”.

Maybe they hope to determine what the primal essance of the universe was at it’s beginning. Is that what they refer to as the, “god particle”?

The reality is that man’s wisdom will always lead us AWAY from God and not towards Him. The only way we can ever come to the Creator of us and the universe we live in is to do so on His terms. His terms are readily available for our information and guidance in the Holy Scriptures which have been compiled under His direction by His Spirit.

Without His direction, we will always end up lost and confused. No amount of research or money can change that. How did the universe begin??

“For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross. Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior. But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation–if you continue in your faith, established and firm, not moved from the hope held out in the gospel. This is the gospel that you heard and that has been proclaimed to every creature under heaven, and of which I, Paul, have become a servant.”
(Colossians chapter 1:16-23)

Evolutionism Versus Christianity

It has just dawned on me that one of the most mysterious and dreadful prophesies of the Bible is being fulfilled in our time. This prophesy concerns an “abomination that makes desolate”

What is an “abomination”? It’s something that God views as grotesquely blasphemous. In the Bible we read about Israel often falling into the sin of idolatry. These grotesque idols were sometimes refered to as “abominations”. They were blasphemous because they made the living Creator to resemble some animal or a man, or even human genetalia. Grotesque because they cause the faithful to sense dread and horror in the way they disfigure God’s glory and majesty.

Christian leaders around the world are wrestling with the growing concern about intelligent design. Strangely, not the fear that it’s truth is being questioned. But, the fear that they may be seen somehow as in support of it’s teaching. Pretty soon modern christian leaders will reveal their true colors. It will make plain the extent of the encroachment of evolutionism on the christian church.

Christian, or followers of Jesus, will be looking to their leaders for guidance and teaching. I will be looking to my pastor to help guide me in my christian experience. I’m hoping that he will take a clear stand for intelligent design and teach our congregation that God did indeed DESIGN us and CREATE us and the universe.

If it does turn out that there is a widespread concensus amoung church leaders and pastors against the teaching of intelligent design, how will the Creator see this? How many christians will become disillusioned with their faith in their Creator as a result? Will this become the “abomination that makes desolate”?

To teach that God is just some mystical force or a fabrication of human culture qualifies truly as an abomination. To say that all of creation created itself by some feeble process called, “natural selection” is even more abominable to a believer in Jesus.

Who Will Be Saved?

Will you be saved? Will I be saved? Will anyone be saved? Does it matter?

One day you will find yourself living in a very different world. All of the people who are making the world a safe and free place to live will be gone. All those godly people who believe in Jesus will dissappear off the face of the earth. There’ll be no warning except the ones in the Bible.

The economy will fail, men’s hearts will fail,  people still here will suddenly realize that they were duped into turning from God and are doomed to pay the price. Classrooms, workplaces, highways, parks, etc. will become war zones. Many people who have placed all their bets on the claims of science and really believed that we just evolved and there is no creator will find themselves frightened and confused.

Others will be enraged at God. So sure that they were good enough and why were they left behind. Do you have respect for Jesus, who died to buy our salvation? If not, you won’t have a chance. The question God asks is will He find faith when he returns? Not just any faith! Faith that Jesus is the Savior and that He is who He says He is. According to the teaching of the Bible, not your opinion or mine.

When will this all happen? When we least expect it, He’ll come like a thief in the night. In the blink of an eye…

 Jesus said,

“Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away. No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.
As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 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; 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. Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other left. Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.”

“Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom the master has put in charge of the servants in his household to give them their food at the proper time? It will be good for that servant whose master finds him doing so when he returns. I tell you the truth, he will put him in charge of all his possessions. But suppose that servant is wicked and says to himself, ‘My master is staying away a long time,’ and he then begins to beat his fellow servants and to eat and drink with drunkards. The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”
(Matt. 24: 35-51)
