STRANGE ROCK

Home-share

I sat through one of a series of National Geographic, “One Strange Rock,” last night, in spite of its references to millions and billions of years of evolution theory.  I love the photography of National Geographic and there was nothing else worthwhile on the tube last night.  So I watched.

Sometimes it’s good to have faulty hearing.  I got to enjoy this show without hearing much of the narrative – which I knew would be filled with conjecture and evolution.  As I looked at the magnificent microphotography of each of the life forms, I couldn’t help but see the hand of God and His magnificent design.  Take a look at the picture above and notice all the geometric patterns – the outstanding colors and forms.

Anything that beautiful and useful couldn’t have evolved from a big bang or explosion.  Someone had to be in control of the making of it – someone with the intellect of the universe – one who still holds the earth, moon, stars and all the planets in the palm of His hand.  God is the Creator.  He is the One who formed the seas and all that fill it.  All the magnificence, still to be discovered, was placed there for a reason.  We haven’t even begun to uncover the many different life forms within our world.

When Job was suffering through his many losses, his friends told him it was because of something he’d done to displease God.  In Chapters 38-41 of the book of Job – God talks directly to Job through a whirlwind – describing His connection with every form of life.  Not only did He create it all, He knows everything about it.

Every scientist will tell you that every cause has an effect.  One thing leads to another and I suppose that’s there reasoning when they talk about things evolving. However, the design of every living thing is not by chance.  It had to be created by someone with perfect knowledge of all life functions – how things fit perfectly into geometric, mathematical shapes – engineered by a master – with parts which cannot be duplicated by human minds – One who controls the weather, the changes in our environment, the seeds forming into life within the ground – the gigantic population of different species.  The Creator, God rules His creation with grace and love.

(God speaking to Job, Job 38:4-7)”

Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth?
    Tell me, if you have understanding.
 Who determined its measurements—surely you know!
    Or who stretched the line upon it?
On what were its bases sunk,
    or who laid its cornerstone,
 when the morning stars sang together
    and all the sons of God shouted for joy?”

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

  1. You would love the documentary “Is Genesis History?” They look at creation and talk to scientists that are Christian. Proving that the earth was created in 7 days and that the worldwide flood actually occurred. It’s very insightful.

  2. Well said! The book of Job is one of my all time favorites.

    I’ve watched a bit of Strange Rock, too. Creation is simply incredible! What gets a little funny about the show is some of their attempts at moralizing. “Nature,” soon begins to take on personhood and “it is good,” and before you know it, creation is soon making rational and intelligent choices related to our well being, much like a good, good Father would. It strikes me as somewhat comical because that is irrational, inconsistent with non belief.

      I noticed this as well. I love the poetic movement of God’s Word to Job. Get up and fight like a man – even when you’re wasting away. Pretty tough, but sometimes we need tough words to wake us up.

      • What’s really sweet about that, “get up and fight like a man” is that here we are thousands of years later…just beginning to discover that depression, despair, and powerlessness, often stem from the inability to be angry and to fight back. So what is the kindest , most loving thing you can do for someone in a state of despair? Not pity them, not empathize with their sorrow, but admonish them, remind them to, “get up and fight like man.” Be ye angry…..go slay those dragons.
