Clouds and darkness are round about him: righteousness and judgment are the habitation of his throne.
( Psalms 97:2 )
God covered the proof of his presence as part of the plan of redemption. God gave us free will so that believing in Him is a choice. If proof of God was in plain sight there is no free will.
But of the tree of the knowledge
of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou
eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
( Genesis 2:17 )
Evolution on the scale required in the popular science paradigm requires death. There was no death before sin, therefore the evolutionary basis of the Phylogenetic Tree of Life is impossible.
And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.
( Genesis 2:8 )
The probability that four habits evolved in 620 plant families is a number too big to display in Google Sheets. The probability that four habits were created with 620 flower types is not that big. Occam’s razor that.
And every plant of the field
before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew:
for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground. But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.
( Genesis 2:5-6 )
On the 3rd day there was no rain upon the earth and there was not a man to till the ground. On the 6th day there was a man in the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it, logically there was also rain.
Then was the iron, the clay, the
brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became
like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them
away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the
image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.
( Daniel 2:35 )
When we consider the similarities between the 3rd day and the Millennial Kingdom we should realize that, if flat earth is Biblical, then maps of the supposed flat earth should have Jerusalem at the center. They don’t.
To him that stretched out the earth above the waters: for his mercy endureth for ever.
( Psalms 136:6 )
On the 3rd day the dry land was stretched out above the waters of the deep in a manner which may be visualized as a potter making a hollow vessel out of a solid lump of clay.
And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads. The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold; And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone. And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia. And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which goeth toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates.
( Genesis 2:10-14 )
Applying practical knowledge and simple logic to Genesis 2:10-14
- IF a river from Eden watered the whole surface of the earth,
- AND water flows downhill,
- THEN Eden was the highest point on the surface of the earth.
For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else. ( Isaiah 45:18 )
By the end of the first day light was trapped in a watery mass teeming with biological life. It was the primordial soup. The first day produced the written word: the Bible encoded as replicating DNA.
And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. ( John 1:14 )
The Bible, the Word of God, the written form of he whom Jesus of Nazareth was incarnated to embody, was encoded as DNA on the first day of creation.
Could we have the Bible as non-coding DNA in every cell of our bodies?
