Time to read and study the Bible!
Have you tried to read the Bible, only to be frustrated at not understanding it? Are you a skeptic, thinking that it is filled with fairy tales? I have news for you, friend, God's word is real and it is alive. Let us look at this amazing fact-" Canst thou send lightnings, that they may go and say unto thee, Here we are?" (Job 38:35) God was confronting Job and asking him some questions in response to his complaining. What is so amazing is the word-Lightnings and how God can make them talk! Sounds crazy? Consider this-From the time Benjamin Franklin made the tremendous discovery of lightnings and electricity, we have seen progress through centuries of study!
Man has mastered the art of electricity so that we, now, can see images and sounds because of it. Yes, you may reason-Man discovered electricity and that is true, but God in his wisdom and knowledge knew all about it centuries before. His wisdom gave man the ability to access this phenomenon to his advantage.
Want more proof? "It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in: " (Isa 40:22) This is another prophetic wonder of God and how he foresaw the future. Since the time before Christopher Columbus circled the Earth, man held to the belief that the Earth was flat.
We, all, know what happened-Columbus proved that theory wrong and discovered the new world, but it doesn't stop there-WE HAVE MORE! Notice the words-"...Stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain... " Science has discovered that the universe will after a certain time, stretch out into the beyond. There has to be a force doing this and that is God! If our leaders and governments would have taken God at his word, imagine all that money that our government could have saved. All it would have took is a couple of dollars to buy a bible and turn to Isa 40:22 and the answer could have been right under their nose instead of doing all that expensive research at taxpayer's expense.
It is my prayer that this will stir up any hunger to read God's word. If God's word foretold these thing centuries ago, then you can rest assured that God will reveal your plan for your life. He will show you the end from the beginning and make you more than a conqueror! Let me end my thoughts by sharing the following-
" For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end." (Jer 29:11) You have a future with Jesus and it is a glorious one. God bless.
