For the invisible things of him since the creation of the world are clearly seen, being perceived through the things that are made, even his everlasting power and divinity; that they may be without excuse: because that, knowing God, they glorified him not as God, neither gave thanks; but became vain in their reasonings, and their senseless heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools. Romans 1:20-22
Think about it.
Man is no more of an accident than the flight of a jetliner is by accident …
and when a computer flys the jetliner, it is NOT by accident either.
God’s Word declares that; “if we wish to become wise we must become foolish so that we may become wise. And that the wisdom of the world is foolishness with God.” Have you ever wondered what this means and why God would say this?
A couple of years ago, a successful businessman paid a record $3,456,789 to have lunch with Warren Buffett. The foolishness of men has no limits. As if Buffett could somehow wave a magic wand and make him wise by revealing his secrets of the world at lunch. I hope the man had a good lunch, because that is a huge price to pay for insights that God defines as foolishness. Especially since the wisdom of the Creator is available to each of us at any time for no cost.
What type of wisdom is God speaking of here? What are the invisible things God speaks of here? The invisible things are everything that we cannot see with our eyes. Man has two forms of perception: visual and mental. Our mental perception sees the invisible through the functioning of our mind combined with our senses.
God doesn’t just understand our perceptions … He created all of the visible and invisible things, and has made them known to us. How does this happen? Those things that we hear, smell, touch, and taste, we cannot see with our eyes but God has given us the ability to see through the perception of our minds. This truth did not just happen by chance. Our ability to reason and understand is not an accident. Both are miracles of God.
We can both see and smell the flowers … and we can taste and see, as well as smell fresh cookies baking in the oven. These are good examples of perceptions we do not need to visually see to understand. Sometimes, we can even tell the type of flower or cookie without looking with our eyes. Men have further explored many of these things to better understand through the various sciences; but while we have learned a lot in the past couple of hundred years, the most advanced computer will never remotely understand or compare to the human brain.
But God has made known to us that the invisible things the brain does are real, and we haven’t a clue as to how it works or how God created the brain to guide the functions of our body. We have a pretty good memory, but God knows our every thought from the beginning to the end of our lives.
Science understands how some of the elementary things work, and have created theories as to how the invisible things work, but God’s Word says; “The Lord knows that the thoughts of the wise are worthless.” Is there any wonder why the secular world does not acknowledge God? He declares that the thinking of our wisest men is foolishness and worthless in His eyes. Why does God say these things?
Well, God is angry. He has made all of His amazing creations of the universe … those things that are seen and the invisible things visible as well, and what does the world do with these miracles He has revealed to them? Men conger up false reasonings and theories, in their attempt to explain that there is no God.
Evolution and man-made global warming are only two of many examples. God has total and complete control of the climate. Why can’t men just admit this truth? He is the Creator of the climate and is in total absolute control every moment. When he returns, he has promised to provide us with a new heaven and a new earth. What do we have to fear with a God like this? God has given us oil as energy for our use and the understanding of how to use it and men demonize this amazing gift of God.
Here is one way of understanding..
In Science these invisible things that are beyond seeing or explaining are sometimes referred to as a black box. If you were given a computer that writes only in the Chinese language, you could see it, but you would never be able to understand it by trial and error. This would be especially true a hundred years ago … long before anyone understood the basic purpose and functions of a computer. It would be total gibberish to you or me.
The words on the screen are a black box sort of like a black hole in outer space. The actual box that the computer comes in is another black box. I would have no idea how to mentally connect the things inside with the results that appear on the outside. There are literally millions of these black boxes that science has yet to discover let alone understand. The things which men do understand are only elementary principles to God.
In science when men get to an invisible thing, they either stop or they create a theory and test it until they find something that logically or by process of experiment provides understanding. Then they make an adjustment in their theory. Darwin’s theory of evolution is filled with more black boxes than we can count. For Darwin and every other scientist of the time, the cell was an insurmountable black box. They had not even looked at or imagined the function or purpose of a molecule or cell.
It was not even until 1931 and the invention of the electron microscope that scientists even began to see and understand the workings and the molecules and cells that form the human body. When Darwin looked at the functioning of the human eye, he was dumbfounded. Since Darwin was unable to even view a cell or a molecule, this black box left him grasping in the dark for his theory of evolution.
The more theories that science builds around this false theory of life, the farther mankind moves away from the eternal truth of God. Molecular biology has demonstrated that the cell is a fully working organism with working parts that need each other to function. With these parts each dependent upon the others, it is impossible for a cell to have evolved.
Normally when scientists open a black box, discoveries reveal new understandings that demand theories must be changed or discarded. Legitimate science is a system of trial, error, discovery, and change. But in the case of evolution, modern secular science is unwilling to bend or even consider changing or to discard this false theory regardless of new discoveries. They refuse to even consider other views or discoveries. This position is actually anti-science.
Why do scientists use circular reasoning and other unscientific methods to support evolution?
I am convinced, that if Noah’s Ark was discovered … scientists would deny it. They do not want to even discuss the meaning and consequences of a Creator God for themselves and the systems which they have created around this theory.
The more scientists who are trained to believe this theory as scientific fact, the deeper the hole they are digging for themselves and their students. Darwin’s theory was first published in 1859. As a result we have over 150 years of science that has been built around this false premise. Darwin said; “if it could be demonstrated that any complex organism existed which could not possibly have been formed by numerous, successive, slight modifications, my theory would absolutely break down.” The working cell is the answer and the demonstration of this complex organism that Darwin speaks of here and as he predicted … the way a cell works refutes Darwin’s theory of evolution.
Molecular biology has discovered that the cell is Darwin’s Black Box. Each cell is a working machine with functioning parts that could never have evolved. It is impossible for functioning cells to evolve. Cells are composed of an “irreducibly complex system of several well matched interacting parts that contribute to the basic function, wherein the removal of any one of the parts causes the system to effectively cease functioning.” These functioning cells are the demonstrable organisms that Darwin described as the destroyer of his theory of evolution.
The cell is “Darwin’s Black Box.” This is as complex as I will get here. For further insight, read the excellent book by Molecular Biologist Dr. Michael Behe … for more details. We can only imagine the miracles man would have discovered with a foundation built upon God’s eternal truth rather than men’s pride and errors.
So why is God angry, and why is God filled with wrath? Because God has made the truth known to all (The Invisible Things) and instead of acknowledging God, men purposefully hinder the truth in their unrighteousness, their false teaching, and their rejection of the Creator of all things.
Our brain is a miracle, our mind is a miracle, our ability to think and remember is a miracle, our eyes, our ears, and our nose are miracles, our hands and our feet are miracles, and all of our organs are miracles. Right down to every living molecule we are a miracle and we are NOT a result of millions of chance happenings that came together over hundreds of millions of years. The fact that they all work together are God’s invisible things that prove that He is God. The Creator has given us a life filled with meaning, purpose, and miracles. We are here now in the flesh … but we are also here in the Spirit for eternity. And men say: “I don’t believe in miracles.”
Think about it for a moment. Evolution is an impossible fraud. In the same way as a cell, our body cannot function without all of the parts working together. At what point did the human brain or the eyes arrive and how did they get here … by accident? After over 150 years science has not been able to find one single example of a creature that has evolved from another creature. Looking further, science cannot demonstrate a single thing that is in the process of evolving. Is this not a bit odd for a theory that is taught as absolute fact to our school children and university students?
Our brain, our ability to think, to remember, and to reason are not here by chance. Miracles upon miracles. All of the creatures after their own kind only, and things of the universe did not just happen by accidents, one on top of another. Our life has purpose and meaning. We are not dirt that somehow just all came together from nothing. I know you might be saying … “the things of God are too difficult for me to understand.” I agree they are difficult; but the things of Darwin are much more difficult, because they can’t possibly be true.
Each of us will place our faith in one or the other … Darwin or God. Which will it be for you? If Darwin is your god, you need to think long and hard about that. His conclusions were based upon false conclusions on top of false conclusions. Why would you place your trust in a man who did not even understand how life works at its most basic level? His own words noted above convict his theory. Once again, man is no more of an accident than the flight of a jetliner is by accident … and when a computer flys the jetliner, it is NOT by accident either.
We are not an accident that evolved from a slug. Evolution is a lie, and an insult to the Creator of all things. To believe in evolution … is to follow a false god. This is the foolishness of the world that has caused God’s wrath.
As explained here, God has given us the ability to see, and to a degree understand The Invisible Things of life and the universe. Surely you do not think that even our limited vision and understanding of these Invisible Things is somehow by chance?
God’s word tells us that God the Creator is omniscient, omnipotent, and omnipresent. He is all knowing, all powerful; and always there — past, present and future. Not only does God understand everything there is to know about everything there is; but He also created everything that is, ever has been, and ever will be. Everything there is either works or ceases to work at His command. He knew you in your mother’s womb. He knows all things, and His Word is the eternal Truth.
Nothing is too great for him. God has a plan for each of us. We can accept or reject his free gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ our Savior. His salvation for us is free. We only need to believe that Jesus is the Creator God … that He says He is. Pray to Jesus now and believe in Him and His forgiveness and eternal life for you, beginning today. He has created a place in heaven for you and me for eternity. I can’t wait to meet you there.
Why would anyone reject the forgiveness and promises Jesus has for them and put in his place the teachings of Charles Darwin, a man with a failed theory that makes no sense? The invisible things demand our response.
What do you say to these Invisible Things that God has revealed to you?
Miracles of Creation … or a random accident? The choice is up to you.
Grace and Peace to you my friends,
