Hi kids! I’m Spike, the narwhal. I belong to a species of toothed whales that live in the cold waters of the Arctic Ocean. You’ll probably recognize me by my long, straight tusk. Many people call this a horn, but it’s actually a really (really!) long tooth—it can grow up to 10 feet long! It’s made of ivory and grows through a hole in my lip.
I eat fish, shrimp, and squid. Sometimes I’ll dive over 5,000 feet to hunt for dinner. My favorite place to hunt is with my friends and family in the open water between ice floes. But I have to be careful. The ice could close in at any moment and trap me. I also have to lookout for hungry polar bears, walruses, and killer whales. There are lots of dangers in the Arctic, but God has designed me to live here. I have thick blubber that protects me from the cold, and because I don’t have a dorsal (back) fin, I can easily swim under the ice floes to hunt or escape a hungry predator.

“Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock” (Matthew 7:24).
The sea ice I live under is constantly changing, but God’s Word doesn’t change. It’s the “bedrock base” (solid rock) for our lives. Science, history, and fulfilled prophecy confirm that the Bible is true from the very beginning.
We can trust everything the Bible says about science, history, and prophecy, so we can trust what it says about God and how we can live for Him.
