Today's Creation Moment

The Days in Genesis
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.”
Silently, a huge, powerful form slides through the deep, cold, dark depths of the sea. The men aboard the nuclear submarine have seen neither sun nor daylight for months, yet each one knows what day...

Your Body’s Self-Repair

in
James 5:16
“Confess [your] faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.”

Let’s take a moment today to look at your body’s incredible system for repairing itself. Suppose you accidentally cut your finger. Almost instantly, a series of precisely ordered steps begins to repair your finger.

Mechanical Excellence Under Stress

Psalm 148:7-8
“Praise the LORD from the earth, ye dragons, and all deeps: fire, and hail; snow, and vapour; stormy wind fulfilling his word...”

God created this world, but He did not then stand back and let it and all life on it spin off into space. No, He supervises this world, and He is concerned with every day-to-day detail.

Holding Comparisons at Arm’s Length

in
Psalm 139:13
“For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb.”

Many people still believe that as we developed from the fertilized egg in our mother’s womb, we went through all the earlier evolutionary stages. That is, we had gills like a fish, then our heart developed from two-stage to four-stage, and at one point we even had a tail like a monkey. Unfortunately this myth, based upon fraudulent work done in 1866, can still be found as evidence for evolution in some school textbooks.

Against All Odds

Ephesians 1:7
“In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace.”

Blood is one of the most miraculous of all creations. It carries oxygen and energy to our cells, and carries off wastes. It is also a communications pipeline, using powerful hormones to provide communication between various parts of the body.

Prayer Puzzles Scientists

Ephesians 6:18
"Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints..."

Several years ago, the Southern Medical Journal reported that prayers can help sick hospital patients, even if they don't know they are being prayed for. However, some of the scientists involved said they would not accept the findings unless there was a certifiable miracle.

Who Invented the Book?

Luke 4:17a
"And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias."

Two thousand years ago parchment or papyrus pages of written works were all stitched together end to end into a long roll wound around a wooden or metal bar. It was called a scroll. The problem in reading it was that you had to spin through the entire roll if you wanted to read, say, a passage on the last page. Just like Torah scrollthe old video or audiotapes.

God's Optic Fibers

Job 12:7a, 8, 9
"But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee... But now ask the beasts, and they will teach you … or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, and the fish of the sea will explain to you. Who knoweth not in all these that the hand of the LORD hath wrought this?"

One of the areas in which modern technology is advancing most rapidly is fiber optics. Crystal clear telephone messages are carried on cables of special fibers that conduct messages in digital form, using laser light. Offices and industries now use computer systems in which processors are linked with fiber optic cables in order to increase speed.

King Catfish and Ancient Writing

Exodus 17:14a
"And the LORD said unto Moses, Write this [for] a memorial in a book, and rehearse [it] in the ears of Joshua..."

One of the mysteries of ancient Egypt is that it appears to have begun as a high civilization. The very first pharaoh of Egypt is known as Narmer, and his name simply means "Catfish." From what we can tell, King Catfish, who lived around five hundred years after the Great Flood, is helping to prove the truth of the Bible's history.

Man and Horse Domestication

Genesis 47:17a
"And they brought their cattle unto Joseph: and Joseph gave them bread [in exchange] for horses..."

Bones can tell stories. An interesting story of man's relationship with the horse is told by the fossilized teeth of ancient horses. You see, domesticated horses have a habit called crib biting – biting the rails in their corral. Wild horses don't do this. Crib biting creates a specific pattern of wear. So, when scientists find horses' teeth that have this pattern, they know that it comes from a domesticated horse.

Ever-Curious Man

Genesis 1:14
"And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years..."

According to Genesis, the first men were even building cities, inventing musical instruments, crafting in bronze and iron, and keeping calendars. Calendars are among the very earliest forms of writing found by archaeologists today.

Older Farmers

Genesis 2:15
"And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it."

Evolutionary theory says that man only developed farming recently in his history. Besides going against common sense, this evolutionary idea is beginning to cause problems with the greatly inflated evolutionary dating system.

What Mothers Always Knew

in
Psalm 8:2
“Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.”

You wouldn’t guess that a 36-hour-old infant would be able to teach grown scientists about the Creator – especially by making faces. But that is exactly what has happened! The Bible teaches that each of us is an individual, made by God, and known to Him even before we are born. However, those who have tried to promote the idea of chance and natural law have portrayed the newborn as a blank slate upon which What Mothers Knewexperience writes.

Christ: The Answer to Superstition

in
Galatians 3:1
“O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you?”

Christians are often portrayed as foolish and superstitious. Various writers and commentators talk about Christianity as an outdated, pre-scientific faith. Creationism has often been called pseudo or false science. But is it true that Christians are more given to superstition and pseudo-science than others in society?

From the Creator’s Hand

in
Matthew 2:18
“In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping [for] her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.”

It is difficult to find creationists who are not also pro-life. This is because creationists tend to be more aware than most of how God is intimately involved in our world. There are countless examples of how God has taken special care of each of His millions of species of creatures.
