There was rejoicing in Heaven yesterday. At the end of the service I spoke at in Florida yesterday morning, a lady and her adult daughter both said they “wanted to be in the Ark of salvation” and committed their lives to Christ.
To me, this is what Answers in Genesis is all about: preaching the gospel to see people’s hearts and minds changed toward God and His Word! Praise the Lord!
Five Ways the World Can EndRecently, the Fox News website had an article called “Five Ways The World Can End.” The fifth way they propose is the earth will be burned up by the sun! Well, this one is closest to what will really happen. The earth will be burned up by fire, not because of some “natural” cause, but because it will be the final judgment when God melts the elements with fervent heat and makes a new heaven and new earth (2 Peter 3).
However, what crossed my mind as I read this article was that it stated that all life will disappear in the future, which means, of course, that ultimately life is meaningless and purposeless. The more that people understand this (as students are taught in public schools), the more they will start acting as if their lives have no meaning—which is what we see happening.
Here is an excerpt from the article:
The expanding sun: If all else fails, the Earth will almost certainly come to an end in about 5 billion years when it falls into the expanding sun. It’s perfectly natural—stars like ours simply turn into red giants near the end of their lifespans, and their inner planets become toast. Terrestrial inhabitants need not worry, since they’ll be boiled off much earlier by the sheer heat of the growing star. Some scenarios say we’ve got only a billion good years left on this planet—rather gloomy, since life in some form has been around for about 3.7 billion years and this means we’re already close to the end. Then again, it’s also possible that scientists of an advanced future civilization could simply tow out Earth to a safer orbit, after having presumably rendered Mars and Venus inhabitable as well. That’s if they don’t manage to accidentally destroy the planet first.You can read the entire article here.
It is He that talks with youThanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
(John 9:37–38) it is he that talks with you. And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him.
What wins over our adoration and devotion to the Lord Jesus Christ are the words that He speaks personally to us in the Bible; what a thrill that He speaks to us.
