["But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up. Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells." – II Peter 3:10-13
Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved. . . . It is not a matter of if, but when. NASA alone lists five programs which are on the lookout for "Near Earth Objects": Catalina Sky Survey, Pan-STARRS, LINEAR, Spacewatch, and NEOWISE. Physicists around the globe are hurriedly putting together proposals on the best way to blow-up or divert incoming asteroids and comets. Here's the point. If scientists really believed the earth went for millions of years in between killer collisions, none of these programs would exist! But somehow the evolution scientists just haven't gotten the picture. If only a few thousand years go by between these age-ending impacts, even an evolutionist would agree that is simply not enough time for life to magically appear from a mud puddle.
Evolution proponents have also been reluctant to acknowledge that fossils aren't formed every time something dies. Dead plants and animals typically decay before they can be encased by mud or clay. Some type of mold must be formed so that the shape of the corpse can be filled with sediment capable of turning into rock. This petrification also needs to take place quickly enough so that the organism's own chemical compounds don't have time to react with one another causing their own self-destruction. There are only a few agents that can cause these rapid entombments; those being, ash or earth from volcanoes, and sediment moved quickly by wind or flood. Furthermore, some scientists have been willing to admit that the last major fossil-forming event occurred only a few thousand years ago.
Paleontologists, operating under the assumption that earth’s strata represent millions or billions of years, have not looked for fresh tissues within fossilized remains. But fresh biological material within some fossils has been there all along and is being continually discovered, despite the protests of biochemists that it should not exist.
Molecules such as proteins, pigments, and DNA - as well as intact cells and, in some cases, cells still grouped together in tissues - have been found in fossils that are supposedly millions of years old. Whole organisms are sealed in amber deposits, and over a thousand still-living kinds of microbes have been extracted from them.
Fresh tissues and living cells cannot possibly be millions of years old, and they constitute some of the strongest evidence for the young world that the Bible describes.27
The theory of evolution is not supported by the fossil record, but is instead brutally betrayed by the absence of the fossils of transitional species. ScienceDaily provides an estimate for the number of known species as follow: "About 8.7 million (give or take 1.3 million) is the new, estimated total number of species on Earth -- the most precise calculation ever offered -- with 6.5 million species on land and 2.2 million in oceans. Announced by the Census of Marine Life, the figure is based on a new analytical technique. The number of species on Earth had been estimated previously at 3 million to 100 million."28
If we were to assume that each existing species jumped to its present form with just one step in between its original form and its final form, then one transitional life form would existed for each of the 8.7 million species. Now let's say that just a few thousand of each of these transitional bodies were preserved by becoming fossilized. Even in this simplest case we should find these fossils everywhere. In fact, there should be many times more of these fossils than the fossils of known species which have already been found.
Now if we "get real," and assume a series of transitions occurred for each of the known species, then there should be tens of thousands of each of these transitional fossils for every one of the fossils of one of the known species. A person shouldn't be able to walk out the front door of his house without tripping over piles of these intermediate fossils.
The sobering fact is that thousands of scientists have devoted their entire lives to finding just one of these missing links. Some have become so discouraged at the non-existence of these transitional forms that they have created fake relics in desperation, as if coming up with just one would solve their whole problem. The real problem is that the rocks should be teeming with these transitional forms. But instead, the very rocks cry out that evolution is a lie. The ungodly and unbelieving have built their arguments for evolution on fiction. People who believe in evolution do so because they choose to believe it. It takes a greater leap of faith to believe in the lie than it does to believe in the truth of God.
Furthermore, the notion that ancient people would be intelligent enough to draw pictures on the walls of caves and at the same time be too stupid to build a shelter is preposterous. Did it take thousands of years for birds to learn how to build nests? How many million years did it take bees to figure out how to build hives? Of course, some outcasts, fugitives, and homeless people lived in caves in the past, just as they always have, and as they continue to do today. But there are simply not enough natural caves on the planet to house a population of any significant size. The suggestion that an entire age of history should be designated as the era of "cavemen" is so irrational that it would require a mind less developed than one of those so-called cavemen to believe such a myth.
The obvious fact is that man, and all the other living creatures, were placed on the earth. The only two practical considerations for life on the planet are: we were placed here by God, or we were dropped out of a spaceship. The problem with the "alien concept" is that it doesn't explain the existence of the spiritual realm, which we have discussed previously. And in fact, we don't need to search the skies for our Maker as though we were searching for aliens. God has already made Himself known. As we look among all the objects of man's worship, only one God has ever proven His own existence. The God who answers by fire, He is God.
This was the test which Elijah proposed to the worshippers of Baal. "Elijah came to all the people, and said, ‘How long will you falter between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow Him; but if Baal, follow him.’ But the people answered him not a word. Then Elijah said to the people, ‘I alone am left a prophet of the Lord; but Baal’s prophets are four hundred and fifty men. Therefore let them give us two bulls; and let them choose one bull for themselves, cut it in pieces, and lay it on the wood, but put no fire under it; and I will prepare the other bull, and lay it on the wood, but put no fire under it. Then you call on the name of your gods, and I will call on the name of the Lord; and the God who answers by fire, He is God.’" - I Kings 18:21-24
Most readers know how the prophets of Baal jumped around and shouted for hours, and that nothing happened. But then Elijah called on the Lord God of
the fire of the Lord fell and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood and
the stones and the dust, and it licked up the water that was in the
trench. Now when all the people saw it,
they fell on their faces; and they said, ‘The Lord, He is God! The Lord, He is
God!’" - I Kings 18:38-39 By this same test we can know that the God
of the Bible - He is God! The real God
is the God who shows up.
No other God among men has an entire book recording how He has worked on the earth. The Bible gives details, backed up by archaeology and history, showing how He has directed men and nations, heard and answered prayers, and spoken in advance concerning future events. Not only has the greatest story ever told been written on the Bible's pages, it continues to be told in the lives of God's people to this day. God is still making Himself real to His people; blessing, comforting, guiding, directing, and offering the hope of eternal life. And He is still correcting, chastening and warning mankind to repent of their ungodliness that they might not perish. Throughout the ages, and among all people, the God of Bible is the only God who has this kind of testimony. He is the God who has shown up. The Lord - He is God!
Man has every reason to believe that the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is their Creator and Savior. But people who are un-churched and ignorant of the Bible are not even aware there is a real God who has proven His existence and power through His testimony. They have been convinced of the lie that man has risen up from the atoms to become his own master of the universe. Their delusion is so strong that most of them never even stop to think, "Who made the atoms?" "Where did energy and the building blocks of the physical universe come from?" "Have they existed forever?" "Are they, then, the eternal god?"
Do the atoms have a spirit or soul which drives them to express themselves in ever-higher forms? Are the atoms aware of their progress toward some grand scheme, and will they know when it has been achieved? Would atoms be disappointed, or feel unfulfilled, if they had never become more than rocks and minerals? Is every creature, solar system, and galaxy in the universe a meaningless accident? If so, is it better to be a dog than a rock, or better to be a man than a shrub? No wonder that modern philosophers have come to believe in existentialism and fatalism.
The disparity between lifeless atoms and the living souls of men is far too great to ignore. How did spirit and matter intersect to form the body, soul, and spirit of man? The question of life's origin has more of an impact on attitude and culture than any other philosophical question. It makes the difference between purpose and mere existence, between meaning and insignificance, between spiritual consciousness and oblivion.
The fact is, people have a spirit with hopes and aspirations, desires and expectations. It is reasonable to conclude that we have inherited these qualities from our creator, and that we were indeed made in the image and likeness of God; a God who has a plan, a will, and expectations for His creation. A God who knows us, loves us, and wants to keep us from perishing by offering us eternal life. And amazingly, He is willing to overlook the time that man has spent running from Him, and worshipping the false god of matter.
The Apostle Paul observed that when people choose to worship the things which God has created rather than worshipping God Himself, God allows them to be carried away into a state of complete immorality. And because today's presumptuous philosophers (so-called evolutionary scientists) have led mankind into the worship of matter, western culture stands on the brink of total depravity."Professing to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things. Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.
And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them." –
Man still retains a God-given conscience and many good character traits from his original identity as the image and likeness of God. Yet at the same time, fallen man believes he can be good on his own, even while he seeks independence from God - the source of his goodness. This is a direct conflict. But man foolishly hopes to contrive some arrangement by which he can experience goodness on earth, while remaining alienated from God. Today, as the West toys with Atheism, man tries to reclassify wicked behavior as morally neutral - as long as it is accompanied by a pleasant temperament and the acceptance of others. The soul and conscience are not fooled by this cover-up; and so unredeemed man lives in an irresolvable state of confusion. He searches for another source of stability and strength. A spiritual source that is compatible with wickedness. Having turned away from the protection of God, man has become easy prey to the forces of darkness, and has begun to identify with God's enemy. We find, therefore, a direct correlation between man's slide into wickedness and his worship of Satan - the god of wickedness.
The physical sciences, which man once contorted to support evolution, have ultimately revealed through astronomy the brevity of the age. Man's habitation on the earth is not an everlasting kingdom. God sustains the duration of the ages by His word. But because our Lord is a long time in coming, mankind has determined to build his own kingdom; a kingdom in which his conduct is unconcerned with God's will. This laxity is to be expected by the world, which desires to remain alienated from God. Unfortunately, the Church has largely adopted the same lethargic attitude.
"Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven." - Matt. 6:10 These two actions are bound together. The understanding that "Thine is the kingdom" is the basis of the fear of the Lord. Many western Christians have embraced the world's delusion that man is the heir of his own runaway kingdom. The decline of holy conduct and godliness in western culture can be directly attributed to a lack of fear of the Lord; a Lord who is perceived as being so weak that He has lost control of His kingdom. The Church has lost its saltiness because it has lost its watchfulness. The church has been lulled to sleep by the lullaby of the lawless - "The Lord will do nothing, either good or bad." – Zeph.1:12
Whereas in fact, we have God's word that He is doing a short work on the earth, and that He will cut it short in righteousness. "The heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat." "Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat?" – II Peter 3:10 (Emphasis added)
Holy conduct and godliness will not return to the Church until it acknowledges the coming end of the age. As much as worldly scientists would like to ignore it, science only serves to confirm the end-time prophecies. The fallen world's faith in itself cannot save the world. The heavens and the earth will pass away precisely as God has ordained. May the Church awaken to remember that the Lord's kingdom was not of this world, and neither is this world the kingdom of the saints.
"Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world - the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life - is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever." - I John 2:15-17] - end excerpt from DARK FREEDOM.
